* A female variant comes up in ''VisualNovel/ShinraiBrokenBeyondDespair''. [[spoiler:Hiro asks Kamen out while he's dating her best friend Momoko, and she, disgusted, rejects him. She then tells Momoko about it herself, only for Momoko to refuse to believe her.

When Momoko sees that Hiro has been texting Kamen, she decides to [[MurderSuicide kill Hiro and herself]] to frame Kamen for the murders.]]

* In ''[[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Happy New Year, Charlie Brown!]]'' Linus ends up dancing with Charlie Brown's crush, The Little Red-haired Girl.
