* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': In episode 15, Asuka and Shinji kiss, but due to their personal traumas it goes awfully wrong. Asuka wanted to kiss Shinji but she did not want to look interested, in case that he rejected her, so she told she wanted to kiss him because she was bored. Shinji wanted to kiss her but he did not believe she was interested in him, so he initially resisted. They went forward with the kiss but Asuka held Shinji's nose the whole time to pretend it was not a big deal in case he turned her down. And precisely because she was pretending it was not a big deal, Shinji did not dare to do anything, and he remained motionless and unresponsive. And precisely because he remained motionless, Asuka thought that he was turning her down, so after breaking the kiss, she immediately ran to the bathroom with the excuse she wanted to rinse her mouth of the taste, when she in fact was trying to hide how deeply hurt she was by this perceived rejection. To Shinji the whole mess ended up as another blow to his self-esteem and for Asuka it was one of her first steps towards her mental breakdown later in the series.

** The sequel has one as well, when Mia and Andrew try to kiss to see if they have any romantic chemistry at all. Cue extremely uncomfortable liplock and the realization that they are definitely BetterAsFriends.

* Humorously, this seems to be the default mode for ''Franchise/HarryPotter'''s Lavender and Ron, due to a comic combination of hormones, overeagerness, and a lack of genuine chemistry. Similarly, Cho Chang's and Harry's first kiss is treated as awkward by the trio (she had been crying due to how emotional being reminded of Cedric Diggory made her, and was half-crying when she and Harry had a moment alone leading to it), though Cho and Harry hardly regret it (until they split up).

* On ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' Sheldon and Amy's kissing experiment goes well enough considering [[AmusingAlien Sheldon]] was involved, but Amy was drunk and ends up throwing up right after. Unlike most examples, the kiss wasn't indicative of the couple not being well matched, it was just really bad timing on Amy's part.

* In ''Webcomic/MenageA3'', Zii and Gary's first kiss, late in the comic's run, is supposed to be businesslike, but [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/nothing-weird is rendered awkward]] by the fact that they are attracted to each other, but Zii doesn't want to admit it and and Gary is a NiceGuy and respects the fact that she doesn't appear to be attracted to him. This is a twist given that most of the cast are far more casual about [[SexComedy far more than kissing]].
