* ''Franchise/DragonBall'':
** Goku and Chi-Chi were very sweet together as kids though Goku misunderstood the ChildhoodMarriagePromise that Chi-Chi made him keep which caused some grief when they meet as teenagers. The [[Anime/DragonBall anime]] [[AdaptationalExpansion expanded]] this with {{Filler}} of Goku and Chi-Chi meeting again when they were young and having an adorable fistfight together.
** Kid Trunks and kid Mai in ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'', Trunks boosts that she's his girlfriend and later they're seen in a tree watching the stars together. In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' they got even more scenes together. Of course, [[BrokenBase depending]] on who you ask this is cute or creepy as hell since Mai is 40-something woman whose been [[FountainOfYouth de-aged]] into a young girl.



** More platonic example but Natsu, Gray and Ezra were pretty close when they were kids in the Guild together. It's also revealed they used bathe together ''all time'' and Ezra still encourages it despite them being teenagers now.



** Mako is crush prone but mid-middle school she starts having an unrequited crush on Oka.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'' Vivi and Kohza were very cute when they were kids together, Vivi got particularly overcome when Kohza risk his life to protect her and swore that he would die if kept her safe. Years later Vivi and Kohza are still very close but due to the [[NoHuggingNoKissing nature of the series]] remain platonic]].


Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Smallvile'' comic ComicBook/WonderWoman as girl meets ComicBook/SteveTrevor when he washes ashore home island as a boy leading to this ridiculously adorable line.
-->'''Diana''': My name is Diana of Themyscira... (she grabs his hand) and you Steve Trevor will be my ''[[LadyLand secret]] boy!''


Added DiffLines:

** In ''Thor Son of Asgard'' young Thor and young Sif have multiple moments together which they clearly carried (over millions of years) into their adulthood.


Added DiffLines:

* Post-Crisis ComicBook/{{Robin}} (Dick Grayson) and ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} (Barbra Gordon) had multiple moments of this and developed their relationship further in their adult life. Similarly Tim Drake and Stephine Brown had a relationship when they were teenagers but unlike Dick and Barb drifted apart when they grew older.


Added DiffLines:

* Christine and Raoul from ''Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' were adorable together as children as entailed in a flashback. They first met when Christine's scarf was blown into the sea and Raoul ran in to retrieve it getting soaked as a result, but Christine laughed and kissed Raoul in thanks and they were inseparable until they were teenagers. Most adaptations don't tend to go into Christine and Raoul's childhood which is a shame because it might swayed fans away [[MisaimedFandom from wanting Christine to be with titular Phantom]].


Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' Cloud and Tifa have an iconic moment of Puppy Love on top of the well where they make ThePromise together.

Added DiffLines:

** 12-year-old Lacktwo broke up with his girlfriend Yancy at the start of his arc. The [[VideoGames/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 games]] did feature a romance option between his game counterpart (Nate) and Yancy, however, Nate is [[VagueAge implied]] to be a little older than 12.

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'':
** The first movie contains strong hints that Simba and Nala also feel this way about each other. One gets the sense they aren't necessarily telling the truth when exclaiming how "disgusting" it would be.
** ''Simba's Pride'' has Kovu and Kiara as young cubs. Kovu shows some reluctance, though probably since he's unused to affection, but Kiara's terribly flirty.

* ''ToyStoryThatTimeForgot'': Trixie the triceratops is, at most, 4 years old, [[note]] Her owner, Bonnie, isn't even old enough to be in school[[/note]] and Reptilus Maximus has only been out of his packaging for 2 days.

* Calvin and Susie from ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' have [[BelligerentSexualTension Toy Belligerent Sexual Tension]], of all things.

* Calvin and Susie from ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' have [[BelligerentSexualTension Toy Belligerent Sexual Tension]], of all things. It's a bit blatant in the earlier strips, but got more subtle as time went by and Bill Watterson got a better sense of both characters' personalities and could let them bounce off each other.
