This trope should probably be renamed; it gets misused a LOT to mean relationships that were written badly instead of seeing a relationship where there isn't supposed to be one.

This page just seems to be another Ho Yay page.

Should we look for a different quote, or at least add a little qualifier somewhere? While the quote nicely summarizes the trope, the actual characters and actions mentioned are very much intentionally made to cause that kind of weirdness, rather than simply being poorly written or "fumbled".

In the mean time, I'm just going to add a short example for Evangelion under the Anime folder.

I think I end up doing this all the time. A new kid and her mentor come off as Foe Yay, a Tagalong Kid comes off as crushing on the dorky boy in the group, and most recently, a pair of Ensemble Darkhorses who tend to come off as something between siblings and a married couple.

Could we add the Carlie Cooper/Peter Parker relationship post-One More Day to this page?

I'll agree with that. They tried to make them the OTP, but they still made Mary Jane better.
