Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Beta Couple is present in the backdrop of many Romantic Comedies and Dramas with The Hero of the story looking at wooing their Love Interest, to provide a Foil to his/her efforts you will see one of their closest friends have a remarkably easier time getting together. This "simpler" pairing is the Beta Couple.
The Beta Couple is always a secondary pairing (and foil) to the primary relationship. Often they are friends or confidants of one or both of them, it's not uncommon for The Hero and his wingman to simultaneously try to hook up with the heroine and her maid of honor.
Usually, they serve as a barometer for how well or poorly the main (alpha) couple is doing and offer possible solutions to any problems. Hit a Poor Communication Kills? The Beta Couple had that, but worked it out. Caught cheating? Losing "the spark" for your Love Interest? The Beta Couple had that, and here's how they got through it. In addition to all of that, if there is sexual tension that the Official Couple is oblivious about, the Beta Couple is all the more aware of it and will try to help them embrace it.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })For these reasons, things tend to go more smoothly for them, letting them work as catalysts for the alpha couple's romance. That said, the Beta Couple is usually a source of comedy, and as such have more freedom to be unconventional and kinky and less problem (or at least conflict) prone than the alpha couple.
While the Beta Couple usually consists of secondary characters, sometimes the author(s) will decide that the main character has enough crap to deal with, make his relationship the Beta Couple, and make the bulk of the romantic conflict in the story concern the sidekick's relationship.
Because having multiple couples is convenient for writing musical numbers in contrasting styles, adapted musicals often develop characters absent or barely present in the source material into Beta Couples. Musicals traditionally assign the Alpha Couple better singing voices than the Beta Couple, who get more opportunities to dance (especially if they're the juvenile type) and/or crack jokes.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Compare Token Romance. See also Hooked Up Afterwards. Totally not related to Beta Test Baddie, but sometimes related to Pair the Spares or Romantic False Lead. Compare Alone Among the Couples, another foil to the main character's romantic life.
Has absolutely nothing to do with The Alpha Couple, surprisingly.

Tonari no Kashiwagi-san has Sayaka and Kazuki who often help Kotone and Yuuto along with their stumbling more-than-friends-but-not-quite-going-out relationship, both through direct advice and as a Double Date couple to keep the two from being too nervous, although mostly Yuuto, as Kotone is even more innocent than that.

Most fanfics of Puella Magi Madoka Magica center on either Madoka/Homura or Kyouko/Sayaka. The one that isn't the main focus will usually be the Beta Couple to the one that is. Resonance Days can't use the former pairing due to its setting, and instead employs Mami/Charlotte as the Beta to Kyouko/Oktavia.

Detective Conan has Heiji/Kazuha, as well as Makoto/Sonoko and Takagi/Miwako. The three couples have their own quirks (Belligerent Sexual Tension in Heiji and Kazuha's case, a Long-Distance Relationship in Makoto and Sonoko's, and Will They or Won't They? in Miwako and Takagi's), but they all share one huge trait: running in parallel with Ran and Shinichi's borderline Star-Crossed Lovers deals.

And we cannot forget Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head. At least, they were this to Woody and Bo Peep before the couple got tragically split for good between Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3, anyway.

Dragon Age has a few:
Dragon Age: Origins has the odd example of Oghren and Felsi, who are a beta couple to the player character and their love interest. Oghren actually needs the Warden's help to get Felsi to resume their relationship, which had broken off before he met the Warden; but if they help him and have strong enough persuasion skills, Felsi will take him back. By the end of the game she's pregnant and they marry.
Dragon Age II has Aveline and Donnic. Notable for requiring an extremely silly sidequest to bring about, and for the even sillier lines the whole thing draws from the rest of your team. It has the potential to be subverted too; completing Act 2 without doing this quest means that Aveline is still single in Act 3, and incredibly bitter about What Could Have Been. Also, Fenris and Isabela can develop a rather stable and happy Friends with Benefits relationship if Hawke doesn't romance either of them.
In Dragon Age: Inquisition, if neither Dorian nor Iron Bull are romanced by the player character, the two will fall for each other - first as Friends with Benefits, then an actual relationship.

Bleach: Everything but the Rain is Isshin and Masaki's Meet Cute story, featuring Uryuu Ishida's parents Kanae and Ryuuken as the Beta Couple. Ryuuken and Kanae provide a quiet, dignified and very intense contrast to Isshin and Masaki's wild, crazy, and unconventional romance. However, the beta couple's fate is even more tragic than the alpha's, setting up vitally important plot points.

Much Ado About Nothing plays with the conventions. Initially, Claudio and Hero are the happy beta couple, and Beatrice and Benedick are the bickering alphas. The rest of the cast decides to trick B&B into admitting their love for each other, with amazingly quick success—by the midpoint of the play, everyone's soppy in love. Then Claudio is led by slander into accusing and abandoning Hero, and Benedick agreeing to challenge him on Beatrice's behalf. The play ends with both couples getting married. It's almost as if Shakespeare set out to write a sappy romance with Claudio and Hero as the Alphas but got so interested in the Beta Couple that they got promoted. (The opera version drops the whole Claudio and Hero story.)

The Charlie Parker Series has Angel and Louis, who are generally content in their relationship (if not in other aspects of their lives), act as the beta couple to Parker and Rachel. however, later books reveal that there's something slightly sinister behind Angel and Louis's relationship... Also, once Parker and Rachel split up, the emphasis on Angel and Louis' relationship briefly increases, then falls away almost completely, as does their presence in the books. Between The Reapers and The Wolf in Winter, their cursory appearances always have them ask after Parker's current love interest, and their very settled relationship provides a nice contrast with Parker's slightly more turbulent lovelife.

Princess Amelia of Slayers definitely has feelings for Zelgadis but, due to his quest to recover his human body and being the only serious guy of the group, for the most part he doesn't remark on it or doesn't care. However, she does make him blush a lot, and there are many hints that he cares for her quite deeply, especially in the second season. And the fact that we see that one of Amelia's wristbands is tied to Zel's canteen in the credits of the last episode of the third season.

On Angel this was modified with a Love Triangle for the Beta Couple between Gunn, Fred and Wesley, while Angel began a relationship with Cordelia. Gunn and Fred were the Beta Couple on their own during seasons 3 and 4. While Angel and Cordy were trying to figure out that they were in love with each other in the third season and god knows what happened to Cordy in the fourth, Gunn and Fred had a fairly stable relationship from the time they got together until "Supersymmetry".

In Skins, despite its numerous couples in every generation, only Grace/Rich in Generation 3 truly fit this trope, as they've had relatively smooth sailing compared to every other possible coupling in their cast. In the previous generations, both intended Beta Couples (Sid/Cassie and Naomi/Emily) proved to be far more popular than their generations' Alpha Couples (Tony/Michelle and the Freddie/Effy/Cook Triangle of Doom), and thus were promoted to Alpha status in their second series, with the attendant Conflict Balls being thrown their way. And it wasn't like they were without conflict to begin with anyway.

Cheers featured three beta couples in Frasier and Lilith, Carla and Eddie, and Woody and Kelly, all of whose relationships went rather more smoothly than those of alpha couples Sam and Diane and later Sam and Rebecca (though they were not without their strained moments) and ended in marriage (though in the first case, the marriage ended in separation and eventual divorce, while in the second case, the marriage ended with Eddie's death and unmasking as a bigamist).

In Umineko: When They Cry, Lambdadelta/Bernkastel serves as this to Beatrice/Battler for some. Interestingly enough, so can Jessica/Kanon and George/Shannon. For extra Mind Screw fun, later arcs heavily imply that Beatrice, Shannon and Kanon are the same person.

On Parks and Recreation, Andy and April have become this to Leslie and Ben, even giving the latter couple relationship advice on a few occasions.
Subverted with Ann and Chris, whose relationship is not in focus as much as Leslie and Ben's, but is shown to be far more complicated than Leslie and Ben's healthy relationship. The first time they broke up Ann didn't notice.
Ann and Mark was possibly an attempt at one of these that led to Mark written off. Mark's only notable traitsnote Ship Tease with Leslie and some womanizing behavior had to be dropped for his character to fit into this trope. He subsequently became too bland for the writers to bother with. Ben and Chris were introduced around the time he was written off.

Winx Club has at the end of season 1 two Beta Couples: Stella and Brandon, and Tecna and Timmy. By the end of season 2, Musa has hooked up with Riven, while Flora is dating Helia. At the end of season 3, there are five with Aisha and Nabu dating each other. All of the couples have gone through their rough spots and struggles, while Musa and Riven have almost as much conflict as Bloom and Sky, the main couple. At the end of season 4, there are only four due to Nabu's death. And at the end of season 6, there are only three since Musa and Riven have broken up and Riven's been Put on a Bus.

Deconstructed in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. At first, newlyweds Nick and Honey appear to be this to the severely dysfunctional marriage of George and Martha. By the end, however, it's become apparent that though George and Martha are indeed a dysfunctional couple, they also have a very strong bond holding them together. By contrast, Nick and Honey have dealt with problems by ignoring or hiding them, and are implied to be on the road to an even more miserable marriage.

Captive Prince: Each book has a couple getting together in the background that serves as a foil to Damen and Laurent.
In the first book, Torveld and Erasmus are an "ideal" master/slave pairing, contrasting the extreme hostility and Foe Romance Subtext between them.
In the second, Jord and Aimeric are a rough soldier and a pampered, pretty noble who have an easy, affectionate relationship that leads to tragedy due to Aimeric's dark secrets, underscoring Damen's fears about their own relationship.
In the last, Pallas and Lazar are an Akielon and Veretian who make an uncomplicated, fun couple who get together based mainly off of physical attraction, whereas Damen and Laurent's relationship is made much more complicated by their national loyalties.

In a lot of Naruto fanfiction that puts Naruto and Hinata in the spotlight, Sasuke and Sakura are usually depicted as the Beta Couple. The inverse is also possible - for example, in White Rain, Sasuke and Sakura are the main pairing, with Naruto and Hinata as the Beta Couple. Finally, for those who don't particularly like the Sasuke and Sakura couple dynamic, there are a lot of other pairings that can step up to the plate.

Later seasons revel in Ship Teasing Jeff and Annie and eventually actually get Troy and Britta together for a while, making Troy and Britta the traditional "find love more easily" Beta Couple to Jeff and Annie's non-stop Unresolved Sexual Tension.

Turk and Carla. At multiple times J.D. has mentioned that they act as a unit giving advice to others, to the point in one fantasy based episode they were portrayed as a two-headed witch.
Dr. Cox and Jordan are a Beta Couple as well and in fact become way more stable than Turk and Carla once they get back together permanently in Season 2.

Wedding Crashers has Jeremy and Gloria, a mentally unstable nymphomaniac. Despite torturing Jeremy with/during sex, and being desperately possessive and scary, the two end up getting together while John and Claire hit a rough patch. The irony here is that John forced Jeremy to date Gloria so he would have shot with Claire, only for it not to pan out at first. It's even more ironic (and plays the trope straight) considering John and Claire didn't hook up until they were forced to be in the same room with each other during Jeremy and Gloria's wedding as the best man and maid of honor.

On Married... with Children, Marcy and Steve (or later, Marcy and Jefferson) to Al and Peggy. Played With in that Al and Peggy loathed each other (most of the time.)
Subverted in that, while Marcy and Steve seem much happier together than Al and Peggy, Al and Peggy stay together at least around 27 years (having their 16th anniversary in the first season and then the show running 11 seasons), while Marcy and Steve's relationship deteriorates from happy newlyweds to toxic rather quickly. After only four seasons Steve dislikes Marcy enough to leave her.
Marcy's relationship with her second husband, Jefferson, is quite toxic from the get go as well, just in somewhat different ways from Al and Peggy's relationship.

Total Drama:
Season 1 has three pairings that get together with some amount of drama — Gwen/Trent, Duncan/Courtney and Geoff/Bridgette — while Tyler/Lindsay, Harold/Leshawna and Owen/Izzy all manage to hook up with relatively little interaction.
In later seasons, Geoff/Bridgette become this to Gwen/Trent and Duncan/Courtney, as their love proves extremely enduring despite experiencing their share of drama while the other two couples ultimately break up because of the drama they face on the show. Similarly, Tyler/Lindsay become the only one of the original six couples to be completely untouched by any drama or break up at any point (despite Lindsay's inability to remember who Tyler is).
The second generation cast has the relative stability of Sam/Dakota versus all the problems that Mike/Zoey face.
The Spin-Off, Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race has Crimson and Ennui, who are together from the beginning and are unwaveringly devoted to each other, and casually-flirtatious Brody/MacArthur against the more dramatic couples, Noah/Emma, Ryan/Stephanie and Devin/Carrie.

Relatively speaking, Jesus and Emma are this on The Fosters. While their relationship had no shortage of drama as is to be expected from a Soap Opera (Emma getting an abortion without even telling Jesus she was pregnant, Jesus's difficulties recovering from his TBI), they stay together for most of the series, and their first appearance in the Spin-Off reveals that they're engaged.

Circleverse: Lark and Rosethorn are in a happy, stable, and open relationship. Although this isn't made explicit until the later books, those are the only books in which the protagonists start exploring romance anyway, usually with a lot of fumbling.

Valkyria Chronicles has Largo and Eleanor. After helping Eleanor find closure with the murder of her previous boyfriend, the two hit it off and eventually get married after the game. There's also a Gamma Couple with two rank-and-file Squad 7 members, Karl and Lynn, who are lovers at the start of the game and also get married after the war ends if they're both still alive.

The stage adaptation of Anastasia gives us Vlad and Lily, in a parallel to Dmitry and Anya. Both couples consist of a con man and an aristocratic woman, although Vlad and Lily seem to have a much easier time of rekindling their romance than Dmitry and Anya have of admitting theirs.

The Order of the Stick:
Roy and Celia, who are quite upfront about their mutual attraction and get together relatively smoothly. This contrasts how long it took Haley to admit to her feelings about Elan, and is in spite of the fact that Roy spends a large proportion of a plot-arc dead.
The role is also played by Mauve Shirt couple Kazumi and Daigo, who are happily married (and expecting) already, despite having only gotten together after Haley and Elan got together.

Druid City features the main character's homosexual brother, Mike, in an Opposites Attract relationship with Pet Homosexual Dusty Crocker. While they have their own problems, Mike and Dusty's relationship spans the entirety of the series and serves as a contrast to the far more tumultuous relationships that the main character, Hunter Hastings and female lead Becky Fink, engage in separately.

In The Mortal Instruments, Alec Lightwood and Magnus Bane are this to the main couple Clary and Jace, having developed largely because of Magnus proving to be a Breakout Character. This has since become an aversion, as Alec and Magnus have become such a fan favorite One True Pairing that they not only play significant roles in the sequel series The Dark Artifices, but they are the protagonists of The Eldest Curses side series as well as appearing in multiple other stories set in this verse. Thus arguably making them the most prominent couple.

Curtis and Alisha during the first season of Misfits, despite also being the Official Couple and having a fair bit of relationship drama in their own right. Whether or not the show itself actually treats them as a beta couple is debatable, but the fandom indisputably saw Nathan and Kelly as the alpha couple, despite them not getting past the UST stage. Come the second season, things change entirely, with Alisha and Simon becoming the alpha couple (both in-universe and in the eyes of the fandom), and Nathan and Kelly's awkward almost-romance fizzling out as they decide to just be friends - although they're still a hugely popular pairing among fans, so whether this is really the end for them has yet to be seen.

Wizards of Waverly Place:
Harper and Zeke have developed an adorable relationship. The Unfortunate Implications of their relationship stems from the fact that they are the respective sidekicks of Alex and Justin Russo.
Alex and whomever she is dating, and Justin and whomever he is dating. True to form, Harper and Zeke (who got together at the end of season 2) have outlasted their best friends' more passionate but more fleeting relationships.
At one point, even Juliet and Mason were a Beta Couple, due to the fact they had been in a romantic relationship, before each one became Justin and Alex's girlfriend and boyfriend respectively.

Tsubasa -RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE- has somewhat of an inversion. The main protagonists Sakura and Syaoran were actually the ones with the more simplified relationship as opposed to the ambiguously canon Beta Couple Fai and Kurogane, possibly attributed to the fact that Sakura and Syaoran were carry-overs from the already canon version of themselves in Cardcaptor Sakura, so there was no question that they'd get together. Whereas Fai and Kurogane were entirely new characters who got their Character Development over the course of Tsubasa. Even so, they still frequently acted as parental figures to Sakura and Syaoran, as well as parallels/foils to them in various official artwork and in-story plots and jokes, such as their Outo Country names: Big Dog (Kurogane), Little Dog (Syaoran), Big Cat (Fai) and Little Cat (Sakura).

Dragon Age: Origins has the odd example of Oghren and Felsi, who are a beta couple to the player character and their love interest. Oghren actually needs the Warden's help to get Felsi to resume their relationship, which had broken off before he met the Warden; but if they help him and have strong enough persuasion skills, Felsi will take him back. By the end of the game she's pregnant and they marry.

Hikari and Touji in Thousand Shinji. Shinji played matchmaker for them, and they often hung out with the Alpha Couple (Shinji and Asuka). Unfortunately they became embroiled in the conflict between Shinji and Gendo, and the latter used them as cannon fodder to hurt the former. However, Shinji, Asuka and Rei made sure that their friends had a "happily ever after" ending.

Jacqueline/Capt. Laurent are this to Danielle/Prince Henry in Ever After. Jacqueline is Danielle's kind-hearted stepsister, the only member of her stepfamily to treat "Cinderella" with any decency, and Capt. Laurent is the prince's right-hand man. They meet at the ball where the romantic leads are expected to announce a betrothal, and have a few other small scenes where they mostly interact silently - but there's a clear connection between them, and at the very end it's strongly implied that they are together.

In Bakuman。, Akito Takagi and Kaya Miyoshi are the Beta Couple. Their down-to-earth approach to love and marriage and their frequent bickering is a nice contrast to the romantic idealism of the Alpha Couple, Moritaka Mashiro and Miho Azuki. The contrast between the two couples is not lost on any of the people involved, as Mashiro wonders if he and Azuki should be more like Takagi and Miyoshi (who have gotten married despite confessing their feelings later than Mashiro and Azuki), before resolving to keep his promise.

Subverted in Thoroughly Modern Millie. As a way of Cleaning Up Romantic Loose Ends it seems like Miss Dorothy and Trevor are going to hook up (which they actually did do in the original movie). Instead Dorothy hooks up with one of the Those Two Guys that rescues her instead. Then in an equally funny Pair the Spares The other half of Those Two Guys becomes Trevor's new employee, replacing Millie after she leaves.

John Doggett and Monica Reyes on The X-Files could be considered the beta couple to Mulder and Scully's alpha, though their relationship and UST started mostly after Mulder and Scully were already an established couple. Unfortunately for fans of the ship, the show didn't run long enough with them as head investigators of the X-Files for their relationship to be fully established (though there was a good dose of shippiness in season 9); it is unclear what became of them after the series finale. They did not appear in The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

Harry Potter is a very odd example, with the main character's growing romance being second to that of his best friends. Ron and Hermione get the lion share of romantic focus whenever it arises, while Harry and Ginny's development as a couple works itself out at a faster pace without all the bickering and far less mixed messages. Because they are both main characters, perhaps Hermione and Ron have more main characters credits between them than Harry and supporting character Ginny do?

Kaguya-sama: Love Is War:
Kashiwagi and her boyfriend. While they have their issues and come to the Student Council for help; they are dating and openly communicate with each other. Meanwhile, Kaguya and Shirogane refused to admit their feelings and are stuck in a constant war to make the other confess. Chapter 48 even implies that they did something intimate over summer break, which was outright confirmed in chapter 138.
Among the student Council, Ishigami and Miko Iino serve as the heavily teased foil to Shirogane/Kaguya. They are equally as stubborn to each other as Kaguya and Shirogane were in the beginning, but where the latter two tried to hide their feelings through little tricks, the former two are always unknowingly helping each other out.

Zuko and Mai and Sokka and Suki of Avatar: The Last Airbender to Official Couple Aang and Katara, after much Will They or Won't They? and Shipping Wars / Ship Teasing aimed at fans of Zuko and Katara. Where Aang's feelings for Katara begin as a Precocious Crush and have to go through a lot of Katara being "unsure" of her feelings, Zuko and Mai get together with little fanfare and go through only a momentary rough patch when Zuko makes his Heel–Face Turn and breaks up with her by note; Mai quickly decides she "loves Zuko more than she fears [Azula]" and joins him. Sokka and Suki hit a bump when he has trouble getting over his First Love Yue, but get together quite smoothly after Suki joins the Gaang late in the final season and get along famously, if a certain late-night tryst is any indication.

Tali'Zorah vas Normandy and Garrus Vakarian at the end of Mass Effect 3, should you not romance either one of them. It's especially prevalent if your romance is Liara. Joker and EDI also become an item after the latter gains a Fembot body.

On The Nanny, Niles and CC play this role after they were hooked up together. They were quite a fun Beta Couple since they hated each other as much as they were in love, so they were always attacking the other.

The Touken Ranbu doujin Sanjō-ha to Aoe-ha no Kumiawase wa Ii zo with Mikazuki and Juzumaru as the main couple and Ishikirimaru and Nikkari as the beta couple. The former aren't even in an official relationship despite matchmaking efforts from the latter in the first half and going on a Double Date in the second half (though in one mini-comic between the halves, the two are inexplicably in love, with the author's words lampshading this).

In Song of the Lioness Eleni Cooper and Baron Myles quickly fall for each other while Alanna is sorting out what kind of romance she even wants with Jon, George, and Liam. Jon and Thayet play like this as well (despite him being king) since they pretty much fall in love at first sight.
Raoul and Buri start dating and soon become engaged in Protector of the Small's third book. Kel is busy dealing with her crush on Dom and wondering how far her relationship with Cleon will go given their situations. Neal and Yuki also seem to have a pretty easy relationship.
Beka Cooper: Ersken and Kora, a Dog and a criminal who seem to have no trouble dealing with the Dating Catwoman situation. Meanwhile Beka and Rosto have copious amounts of UST thanks to her unwillingness to bed a criminal.

Stacy and Coltrane on Phineas and Ferb. Since both of them are rather laid-back, their romance is meant to be a contrast to Candace's neurotic attempts to get Jeremy's attention. However, Coltrane rarely appears.

Barney and Betty Rubble are a classic example, playing the generally happier, conflict-free Betas to Alpha Couple Fred and Wilma Flintstone. Whenever the former pair does get into a rift, chances are it's due to Barney simply finding himself (again) pulled into one of Fred's many crazy schemes. In 1973, Charlton comics gave Barney and Betty their own book.

Lots of couples in Eureka Seven. Namely Holland x Talho, Ray x Charles, Sakuya x Norb. Dominic x Anemone is probably the most popular. Subverted by Dominic x Anemone. They face loads of troubles in their relationship throughout the series (mostly for Dominic, who spends almost the entire anime trying to get Anemone to notice him), and thus their relationship is more of a parallel to the main pair than a mere Beta Couple. The same may also be said for Holland x Talho. A true Beta Couple from the series would be Moondoggie x Gidget or, as suggested above, Norb x Sakuya.

Faramir and Éowyn in The Lord of the Rings. The relationship is much more present in the books than The Film of the Book (although there's a deleted scene which makes it clearer); they actually share the only confirmed kiss in the entire trilogy.

In The Office (US), any prominent relationship outside of Pam and Jim, who get together at the end of season three and later marry, becomes this by default. Most notable are Dwight and Angela, who begin secretly dating in season two, though unlike most beta couples their relationship is very turbulent, with several other love interests coming in during their on-again-off-again relationship. They ultimately get married in the Grand Finale, by which time they have a child together.

Paper Towns has Alpha Couple Quentin and Margo, Beta Couple Ben and Lacey, and Gamma Couple Radar and Angela. All three are very different kinds of couple: Quentin and Margo are a twisting, turning long-distance relationship between an everyman and (what he thought was) an unattainable ideal; Lacey and Ben are total opposites who ended up together by blind luck and decided they liked it that way; and Radar and Angela are the only sane couple in the room who try to stay as far away from the weirdness surrounding the other two as possible. The last of these get a bit more to do in The Film of the Book.

Duero and Parfait in Vandread. Considering that he's a medic and she's a mechanic onboard a Living Ship, their jobs allow them to be close at all times. Not that they ever do anything beyond compliments and awkward touches... especially because they both grew up in societies that shunned the other gender as subhuman, leaving them unable to come to terms with their feelings.

Yamazaki and Chiharu from Cardcaptor Sakura... even though they're both fourth-graders, they have been together for years, contrasting Sakura's and Syaoran's uncertainty about how they feel about each other. Touya and Yukito are similar, in that they're much more low-key and self-assured than Sakura and Syaoran. They might not be sure about how the other feels yet, but they're both pretty sure where they stand, and there's no real drama in their story.

Constable Crabtree and Dr Grace in Murdoch Mysteries (to Murdoch and Dr Ogden). He's a bright by-the-book police officer, she's a New Woman pathologist. He's sometimes shocked by her modernity, but usually finds she inspires him, she can get exasperated by some of his more old-fashioned values, but respects that he sticks to his principles. And yes, that's also a perfect description of William and Julia.

Jane Bennet and Mr. Bingley to Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice; the Official Couple (the girl who falls for a charismatic The Casanova before discovering his true colors before growing to esteem and appreciate a worthy man) and Beta Couple (the man forbidden from proposing to the girl he loves because his family doesn't believe she is rich enough) are essentially reversed from Sense and Sensibility. Jane and Bingley are a humorous example because they're only the Beta Couple to the reader. Since Elizabeth is the protagonist, she and Darcy of course form the Alpha Couple of the story. However, in the world of the story itself, it's Elizabeth and Darcy who are the Beta Couple, since pretty much from the get-go, the people around them are waiting to see if Jane and Bingley will hook up.

Glee:
Artie/Tina was this for the first season, compared to the Rachel/Finn/Quinn/Puck mess and Terri/Will/Emma. In the second season, after breaking up with Artie over the summer, Tina and new boyfriend Mike became this, compared to the Rachel/Finn/Quinn/Sam mess and Holly/Will/Emma/Carl. In the second half of the season, Puck/Lauren and later Kurt/Blaine have also assumed this role.
After Finn died, the remaining romances on the show were bumped up in importance: Kurt/Blaine became Glee's Official Couple with Brittany/Santana and Sam/Mercedes as the Betas.

In Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, the two couples are Anthony and Johanna as well as Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett, but it's not straightforward which couple is which. Anthony and Johanna have the more conventional romantic arc, with Todd and Lovett helping them out, and Mrs. Lovett's courting of Todd being more in the way of comic relief. On the other hand, Sweeney Todd is the title character and lead role, and it's Mrs Lovett's doomed crush on him that brings about the tragedy of the play.

Aby Ssinia and Somali Longhaired, and Cait Sith and Ann Sieber. By the "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue, Aby and Somali have already married and have two children, while Cait and Sieber are mainly in a working relationship (pediatrician and nurse, respectively), and Sieber turned down Cait's on-the-spot proposal. However, she later tells Cait that she rejected him only because she wanted him to propose more properly and seriously.

Mahou Sensei Negima!:
Konoka and Setsuna. They have their complications, mostly on Setsuna's part, but they still have it easier than Negi and his massive Unwanted Harem. At the end of the manga, while there is No Romantic Resolution for Negi, the epilogue states Konoka and Setsuna both married in the same year, it just doesn't say to each other (though it is implied).
While Negi has to deal with a large Unwanted Harem that only keeps growing, his rival Kotaro only has a mildly dysfunctional relationship with his roommate Natsumi. As of the conclusion of the manga, in contrast with the couples mentioned above, Natsumi/Kotaro are set in stone, given that they are explicitly stated to have married in the epilogue.

John and Mary in WALL•E play this role to the titular robot and Eve. The parallelism between them helps reinforce the theme: Wall-E and Eve are robots, whereas John and Mary are humans whose upbringing in an impersonal consumerist dystopia has robbed them of their humanity. In both cases, they (re)discover their humanity partly through connecting with one another.

In the H.I.V.E. Series we have Wing and Shelby, who are the respective roommates of the protagonist and his love interest, Otto and Laura. their ship becomes canon before the Alpha couple, and there is considerably less drama concerning their relationship. Justified in that the only real drama so far in the Otto/Laura pairing has been Laura's capture and subsequent Mind Rape at the Glasshouse, which is not a relationship problem, per se.

In Regular Show, Mordecai's constant relationship drama with both Margaret and C.J. is frequently contrasted by Rigby and Eileen's happy and healthy relationship. It's lampshaded in Alone at the Altar, where Rigby reveals he's been hiding the fact that they've been dating from Mordecai, because they didn't want to shove their happiness down his throat.

In the Pokémon fandom, a popular practice among fans of "Ferriswheelshipping" (N and Hilda) or "Isshushipping" (N and Hilbert) is to make Bianca and Cheren the beta couple. Certainly helped in the sequel, which includes a subtle Ship Tease between them (Bianca is wearing glasses that suspiciously resemble Cheren's and Cheren himself is no longer wearing glasses at all).

Although there wasn't any one official couple for the show, Jed and Abby, on The West Wing are this trope to everyone else, as they were Happily Married with the ups and downs of a normal, well-adjusted couple (or as normal as possible for a President and First Lady). This was in contrast to Josh and Donna, CJ and Danny, Toby and Andi, Sam and Ainsley, CJ and Simon, Josh and Amy, Sam and Mallory, Leo and Jenny, and Charlie and Zoe, all of whose romances were constantly trampled by politics, ethics, and Dysfunction Junction. But mostly politics.
Except for Josh/Donna and CJ/Danny of course, who were upgraded to Official Couple and ended up together in the final season.

Code Geass:
Suzaku and Euphemia could be this... if there was an alpha to begin with. The typical beta couple is the couple involving the most important people after the couple involving the protagonist. But here, the protagonist is a Celibate Hero, so Suzaku and Euphemia were the only couple displayed in some openings.
Ougi and Villetta, kind of beta for Suzaku/Euphie, but actually the only couple which ends well (not that Suzaku stopped loving Euphie: she dies).

It's kinda... complicated in Yandere Kanojo, since the supposed first couple (Reina and Manabu) is went out without hitch. The secondary couple (Hijiri and Shiratori) is the one who shown the growth. A better example might be The Manager/Hiromichi and Mayami, who get together quite late in the story, but never really face any major obstacles, and even get the Tanaka family's approval quite easily. There are other, less significant Beta Couples as well, like Reina's parents, and The Principal and his wife.

Without a Trace's Danny and Elena were the happy stable couple, who were together for 3-4 years before marrying in the series finale. This is in stark contrast to Samantha and Jack (an affair that ended roughly a year before the show began, resumed after seven years, then ended again when she decided to make it work with her son's father) or Samantha and Martin (ended when he got fed up with her keeping him at arm's length and suspecting that she was still in love with Jack).

Lulu and Wakka from Final Fantasy X, who have a bit more of a harder time getting together than Tidus and Yuna, who were pretty much in Love at First Sight. Though understandable, as Lulu had previously been with Wakka's brother (who had died). But interestingly enough, Lulu and Wakka get married and have a kid before Tidus and Yuna, seeing how Tidus was the fayth's dream and had to leave Yuna.

Another subversion: Contra 4 for the DS not only brought back Bill and Lance, the original Contra duo, but also introduced a Beta Duo in the form of Mad Dog and Scorpion, whose names are Shout Outs to Bill's and Lance's former nicknames from the American localization of the NES games. While Bill and Lance wear blue and red (their colors from the NES games), Mad Dog and Scorpion wear green and purple, which were Bill's and Lance's colors in the arcade version of Super Contra.

Abbey and Daisy in Bittersweet Candy Bowl. This is in stark contrast to the angst, anger, heartbreak, confusion and jealousy experienced by the (many) other characters on an almost daily basis, though Abbey certainly has some personal issues.

An unorthodox case is in the Teen Titans fan books, Our Own League, as Conner and Donna become a couple some time before Damian, the main protagonist, even meets his love interest, Lian. However, as the trope prescribes, Conner and Donna are a stable and mutually supportive couple despite their differences, while Damian and Lian are Too Much Alike, and so deep in Belligerent Sexual Tension that they struggle to work together as teammates, let alone do anything constructive about the attraction.

Nathan and Adelaide from Guys and Dolls are an odd case: they play a typical comic secondary couple, but in stage time and importance they are equal to the principal singing couple of Sky and Sarah. It also should be noted that they were never paired in Damon Runyon's original stories.

In Slam Dunk, Ryota and Ayako are this to Hanamichi and Haruko to an extent. Ryota makes his affection for Ayako very clear and Ayako generally doesn't mind it (unless it interferes with basketball or gets him in trouble).

There's a strange variant in Codename: Kids Next Door. For most of the series there was some sort of inversion, with Numbuh 1 being in an official relationship with his girlfriend Lizzie, while they usually had their problems because he was usually too busy with his job as a KND operative to spend time with her, they worked it out and remained together. The primary Will They or Won't They? was instead occupied by Numbuh 4 and Numbuh 3. By the end of the series however, Numbuh 1 and Lizzie's relationship falls apart when she finally gets fed up of competing with the Kids Next Door for his attention, while Numbuh 4 and Numbuh 3 are revealed to have ended up together in the Distant Finale.

Dragon Age II has Aveline and Donnic. Notable for requiring an extremely silly sidequest to bring about, and for the even sillier lines the whole thing draws from the rest of your team. It has the potential to be subverted too; completing Act 2 without doing this quest means that Aveline is still single in Act 3, and incredibly bitter about What Could Have Been. Also, Fenris and Isabela can develop a rather stable and happy Friends with Benefits relationship if Hawke doesn't romance either of them.

Jacques and Ginger are technically this in Cobweb and Stripes, but it's an odd case. The Alpha Couple is supposed to be the two leads, who aren't actually a couple yet and won't be for some time yet (according to the artist). In all other respects, however, the Happily Married skeleton and spider duo fulfill the roles of this trope.

Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! has an inversion. It's the main character who has a Beta Couple relationship with his Robot Girl girlfriend. While Chiro and Jinmay are shown with a solid and happy relationship since the very first episode and she's usually absent, it's Sprx and Nova the ones who get more screen time and the more dysfunctional dynamic and they don't get together until the final episode, pretty much making them the Alpha Couple of the show.

Gerald and Phoebe from Hey Arnold!; unlike Arnold and Helga, this one isn't (mostly) one-sided. Word of God mentioned that they would have been an explicit Beta Couple in The Patakis, had the series been green-lighted. They would've been the "cool couple" to contrast with the more complicated relationship of Helga and Arnold.
In "The Jungle Movie", both pairings get a Relationship Upgrade and at the end, we see a nigh perfect contrast that cements this status. When Arnold and Gerald are walking to school, they bump into Helga and Phoebe—at which point Gerald and Phoebe wordlessly hold hands and walk away smiling while Arnold offers to hold Helga's hand...an offer she swoons over, then rejects.

While Kate and Humphrey, who were darted and trucked to Idaho and struggling to get back to Jasper, falling in love along the way, Garth and Lilly find themselves hitting it off beautifully. In fact, it gets to the point where the Western pack Alpha prince would be more than happy having Lilly substitute for Kate, even though Lilly is an Omega.

How I Met Your Mother has Marshall and Lily, getting engaged in the pilot episode and having been together for some 8 years prior. Besides a temporary break-up in the early second season they act as a unit and are seen by Ted as the perfect couple that he wants to model himself after. This forms a contrast to Ted's several complicated relationships, as well as the will-they-won't-they relationship between Barney and Robin; arguably the alpha couple after season 4. Before, Ted and Robin were the alpha couple.

Bubble Symphony, aka Bubble Bobble II, introduces Cororon and Kululun, both who also get cursed with Bub and Bob and turn into bubble dragons. Coro and Kulu are magenta and orange, respectively. They never appear in any other Bubble Bobble game.
Keep in mind that Bub and Bob are male, and Coro and Kulu are female.
And Pab and Peb(source) Title Operations Guide in Shop Channel, the new Beta Couple in Bubble Bobble Plus (WiiWare). They're still magenta and orange and both female.

Friends: Monica and Chandler become this to main couple Ross and Rachel in the later seasons. However they vary from the classic Beta couple mould as a lot of screen time is given to their developing relationship and they certainly face problems. (Rather than having it 'all figured out' from the beginning). The difference is they learn to deal with their issues while Ross and Rachel bicker and fight. Ironically this means you see more of their relationship (spanning over half the series) than Ross and Rachel who were only together for about a season.
Eventually Phoebe and Mike.

In The Second Try, Touji and Hikari. Their relationship was pretty similar to Shinji and Asuka's: he was dense and oblivious, and Hikari berated him constantly even though she had a raging crush on him. Shinji and Asuka played matchmaker for both, and they eventually got together.

Watanuki and Karuta in Inu × Boku SS. Being longtime friends who know each other very well, they have an easier time than Ririchiyo and Soushi, who have a hard time even acting as a normal couple since Soushi thinks of himself as Ririchiyo's servant. This becomes even more obvious in the second part of the series, where the cast gets killed off and reincarnated several years later and both Ririchiyo/Soushi and Karuta/Watanuki have to rebuild their relationships from the ground up due to past life amnesia issues. While the things with the new Ririchiyo and Soushi don't turn out well, the relationship between the new Karuta and Watanuki goes just fine, their only issue is that now she is six years older than him.

Sailor Moon:
Haruka/Sailor Uranus and Michiru/Sailor Neptune. Interestingly, they are probably more stable and certainly more mature than the Alpha Couple consisting of Usagi/Sailor Moon and Mamoru/Tuxedo Kamen.
Usagi's friends Naru and Umino in The '90s anime, once they got their Relationship Upgrade.
Makoto and Motoki become one in the live-action series only, even getting engaged in the finale special.

In The King and I, the Star-Crossed Lovers Tuptim and Lun Tha contrast with Anna and the King's non-romantic, frequently antagonistic but nevertheless strong relationship. This is an unusual case of the secondary couple having the stronger singing parts.
