Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })It's a simple story:
Boy meets girl.
Boy and girl like each other.
Girl meets other boy.
Other boy likes girl too, but the girl's attention is already so consumed by the first boy that she doesn't even notice the other boy's affections.
This is Triang Relations #4: a character who has a crush on someone who's already engaged in (at least potential) Shipping with someone else. After all, All Love Is Unrequited. Distinct from the Romantic False Lead in that the latter will actually catch the Girl's attention and make Boy jealous and uncomfortable (forming a Love Triangle).
The Hopeless Suitor thinks that their rival is a Romantic False Lead when in reality there was no competition in the first place; the object of their affection simply doesn't notice them. The center of the love triangle will always think the Hopeless Suitor is just a friend.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })In rare, very rare occasions, through sheer determination as befitting a Dogged Nice Guy, they might win over the object of their affection. It very well might take years or decades, like a Victorious Childhood Friend. The key is that there isn't any hinting towards Unresolved Sexual Tension between them, the tension is all one-sided for a very long time before feelings are reciprocated. If any sign of affection is just to keep the suitor from falling for anyone else, this is Stringing The Hopeless Suitor Along.
Usually doesn't get as far as Stalker with a Crush, unless he's Wrong Genre Savvy enough to be a Prince Charming Wannabe. Compare Romantic Runner-Up and Unrequited Tragic Maiden. When the suitor is unattractive and/or otherwise unpleasant, and it's usually supposed to be funny, see Abhorrent Admirer. When the suitor is straight but their target is gay, or vice versa (or a suitor of any orientation is pursuing an asexual person), see Incompatible Orientation. May result in Mad Love or Yandere if the suitor ends up being nuts.

Osfala, one of the sages from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds has the same problem, being just as Wrong Genre Savvy as Groose and thinking he's destined to be a hero and earn the affections of Princess Zelda. One kidnapping and eventual rescue later, Osfala accepts he's no hero.

Kyouko from Sweet Blue Flowers keeps pining for Yasuko, even though Yasuko won't even give her the time of day. Kyouko's plight gets worse when she finds out Yasuko is actually dating another girl, which means Yasuko is not rejecting her because of her gender, but for other reasons. The scene in which Kyouko begs Yasuko to give her a chance after all has to be one of the saddest in the series.

Roderigo in Othello is a particularly nasty, and disturbingly accurate version of this. He clearly has no chance with the object of his adoration Desdemona, but he is willing to go to murderous ends to win her love. Which makes him perfect prey to be manipulated by Iago

Advice and Trust:
Chihiro and all remaining Shinji's female classmates chase after him obstinately. They have absolutely no hope, though. He is already in a relationship with Asuka, and even if Asuka was out of the picture, they would have to deal with Rei. When Shinji and Asuka finally come clean about their relationship, Asuka declares that "contest" was over before it began. After their declaration, some girls seemed to be unwilling to give up but most of them seemed to accept they had no hope.
In a way, Rei to both Shinji and Asuka. She fell for them but they are in a fully committed relationship and are not looking for an additional romantic partner, even if they love her. And she does not want to disrupt their bond, either.

Furry Experience: Alice seems to be shaping into one for Louis, who barely notices her most of the time, and even more so when Diana's around which incenses Alice. In this case, though, it's unclear if Louis and Diana are actually in a relationship or just really good friends, but Alice still sees her as a rival.

Also, all of Ranma's suitors. One of them (Kodachi) even admits to Ranma that she knows he doesn't love her back, but that this will in no way stop her from continuing to pursue him anyway.

In Duel Savior Destiny the main character's new best friend Selbium is constantly trying to get together with Mia, but whether she's aware or not (she probably is) it's pretty clear that it's never going to happen. She's clearly much more interested in jumping her brother's bones despite his disinterest.

Fire Emblem:
Catria from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and its sequels has a crush on the main character, Marth, but gives up on him since Marth is engaged to his childhood friend Caeda. On the other side, Catria's elder sister Palla likes Abel the Cavalier, but gives up to make way for her youngest sister Est.
Fire Emblem Gaiden:
Catria's original Expy was actually Clair, who had a crush on Alm. Since Alm marries Celica in the end, she ends up settling for Gray despite still having feelings for Alm. That last detail is removed in Echoes, implying that she did get over Alm and treating Gray as a genuine Second Love.
Echoes: Shadows of Valentia adds a new character, Faye, who also has a crush on Alm, though unlike Clair it's implied she doesn't wed and never really gets over him.
Any guy not named Erk who can romance Priscilla in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade will sadly end up as this, as Priscilla is of ultra-high nobility and her non-Erk suitors consist of a mercenary who defected from his country and a mercenary nomad.
Meg from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. Zihark does find her charming and thinks that whoever is supposed to marry her would be a lucky guy... until he finds out it's him. Zihark has had no interest in starting a new romantic relationship with anyone since he lost his important girlfriend, something he had attempted to tell Meg's father in Path of Radiance to no avail. In the end, Meg finds a different, off-screen husband and Zihark remains single.
Catria's Expy, Cordelia, from Fire Emblem Awakening has the same relationship with her leader Chrom. To add insult to the injury, while she clearly shows an attraction toward him, she is unable to build supports with Chrom within his own pool of love interests.
Flora from Fire Emblem Fates seems to have a crush on Jakob, but for whatever reason chooses not to act on it, and the only character she can marry in the routes she's playable in is the Avatar.

Arrow: Laurel turns out to be this for her ex-boyfriend Oliver when she confesses her love for him in Season Four. A particularly tragic example as when they were together Oliver cheated on her multiple times (with her sister Sara to boot) and hasn't shown any interest in her for years, including getting together with Sara again and excluding Laurel from his secret, crime-fighting life. It also puts the fact that Laurel spent two seasons watching Oliver fall in love with Felicity in a much more depressing light. Though Season Five subverts it, with the revelation the Oliver did love her, even when he was with Felicity (the season confirms that Laurel was his One True Love), but had given up on her because he believed he didn't deserve her, thinking himself to be the Hopeless Suitor — unfortunately, by the time he learned that Laurel didn't care about his faults and loved him anyway, she was already dead, and they lost their chance to be together for good this time, making it even more tragic.

According to Kass in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, his mentor, a Sheikah who served as the court poet, had fallen for Princess Zelda. However, she only had eyes for Link, who she was cold and distant towards until he saved her life. Granted this Shiekah could have been an Unreliable Narrator, but the Ship Tease between Link and Zelda does suggest this wasn't just his jealousy at work. He got over this when Link nearly dies saving her, forcing him into a 100-year sleep in the Shrine of Resurrection and decides to dedicate songs to help him when he wakes up.

Miraculous Ladybug: Both Adrien and Marinette are popular with the opposite sex, but due to their single-minded fixations on Ladybug and Adrien respectively, most of their would-be suitors are doomed to fail - so far, Kagami (for Adrien) and Luka (for Marinette) are the only ones (aside from each other) who've gotten any serious interest out of them. Adrien probably has it worse - due to his side job as a Fashion Model, he has a number of fangirls, some of whom are not very nice people.

Valkyria Chronicles III has a couple (heh) examples among the Nameless; Ilmari has a crush on Riela (who has an obvious crush on Kurt), while Margit develops feelings for Kurt (who is already in a Love Triangle with Riela and Imca). While Ilmari and Margit both eventually decide to let their beloveds be happy with each other, Riela's epilogue shows that they still can't stop themselves from Drowning Their Sorrows at Kurt's and Riela's wedding.

George played this in the first and second season of Grey's Anatomy - he was in love with Meredith, who spent the time pining over her married ex-boyfriend and sleeping with random guys she met at a sleazy bar. Eventually, they slept together, but she started crying in the middle. It kinda didn't go too well. Lexie, Meredith's half-sister, becomes romantically interested in George, but he's the only who doesn't notice and is interested in other women.

Linkara has had it bad for The Nostalgia Chick ever since she pretended to sleep with him. He puts her on a pedestal and encourages her distaste for responsibility by blaming her stalking of Todd in the Shadows on Todd himself.

Naruto:
Naruto towards Sakura until Chapter 469. Though he didn't finally admit it until Chapter 474, deep down, Naruto always knew that Sakura only ever loved Sasuke. A part of that was because, as stated in The Last: Naruto the Movie and implied back in Chapter 3, Naruto's crush on her never actually went deeper than wanting to win her heart to beat out Sasuke at something for once. After Chapter 469, Naruto moved past this, became a more obvious Sasuke/Sakura shipper from the Fourth Shinobi World War Arc onward, and fell in love with and got Happily Married to Hinata.
Speaking of The Last, in the first act of the movie, Hinata thinks that she will forever be this to Naruto. Only to be proven dead wrong in the second act, much to her disbelief, and later, joy.
A far more humorous example would be Rock Lee, who sees Sakura, falls in Love at First Sight, and pledges to protect her at all costs. Lee is actually a genuinely nice guy and a splendid ninja, but it's very clear that, for a variety of reasons not limited to his Big Ol' Eyebrows, that he has less of a chance with Sakura than Naruto, let alone Sasuke.
Shiho for Shikamaru is played pretty straight. Shikamaru never notices her feelings and instead turns his attention to his One True Love Temari, no matter how often they denied a mutual attraction. By the end of the manga, Shikamaru and Temari are married with a son.

In Dragon Crisis!, Misaki, one of Ryuuji's classmates. She never really stood a chance, since he's snatched away by his older cousin within the first 5 minutes of episode 1, and is quickly taken away by Rose. Not that it stops her friend Mao from attempting to hook them up anyway.
Ai falls into this trope as well, although it's largely because she's introduced later in the series well after Ryuuji's already been with Rose for a while, and she doesn't attend the same school as they do. But despite that, she decides to show up on the fourth floor window of their school at the end of the series, which one of Ryuuji's friends wonders how she managed to get up there from the window.

A tragic version happens to Shin in the first arc in Fist of the North Star in regards to Yuria. Though he's the Big Bad (through the manipulations of Jagi, Kenshiro's disgraced adopted brother), he genuinely loved Yuria, and despite defeating Kenshiro to claim her the first time, she never loved him. Her attempted suicide broke him ( but she survives, but was willing to give her up for her safety from Raoh).
A somewhat of a love triangle version happens with this: Rei loves Mamiya who loves Kenshiro. And it's pronounced for both of them. Rei is unable to act upon it later on as he was dying after fighting Raoh. And Mamiya did not act upon hers because she knows Yuria is the only woman Kenshiro loves/

Gaston of Beauty and the Beast. Despite being handsome, Belle is the only person who sees Gaston is a rude and pompous egomaniac, which is why she rejects his proposal. Rather than try to better himself, Gaston clearly shows no respect for Belle's opinions or wishes to be left alone and goes to far more villainous lengths to make Belle his wife, which ends up having the opposite effect of what he wanted.

Later he regretted it, but for then Kaworu had moved on, was developing a growing relationship with Rei, and wanted nothing with Saburo. Saburo is constantly trying to get him back, but all that is he achieving is pushing Kaworu away him and towards Rei.

Kazumi from Brynhildr in the Darkness very badly wants to have Ryouta take her virginity. He's in love with Neko Kuroha, however, and Kazumi's a little small-breasted for his taste regardless.

Attack on Titan. Jean meets Mikasa. Jean has a severe and instantaneous crush. Mikasa's brain on the other hand, is locked on "protecting Eren" position and unlikely to change its function anytime soon. That's only one of the poor guy's many misfortunes.
The Middle School AU Spin-Off, Attack on Titan: Junior High gives this role to Bertolt. His hopeless crush on Annie is Played for Laughs, with a two-chapter story devoted to his fruitless efforts to impress or woo her as his friends cheer him on. However, it's mixed with a touch of I Want My Beloved to Be Happy, as he recognizes Annie's feelings for Eren and is content with her agreeing to play a festival game with him.

Akatsuki no Yona:
Yona for Su-won. She spent years trying to impress him and make him see her as a woman, but he never responded to it. Su-won may or may not be a Celibate Hero (or rather, a celibate Antihero). Even if he wasn't and did return Yona's feelings to some degree, he made a conscious choice not to pursue them, knowing any chance they had together died when he killed her father.
Hak was in love with Yona for years, knowing full well she loved Su-won. Since they were both equally important to him, he never acted on his feelings, and tried his best to encourage them to get together. Even after Su-won betrays them and they are forced to flee the castle, Hak still refuses to pursue her. Believing Yona would never return the feeling, he even insists she not bother answering his Love Confession. Thus, he is the only one unable to recognize that she eventually falls for him and that he's actually a subversion of the trope.
Kija and Jae-ha for Yona as well. They both have feelings for her, but both also know that Yona and Hak are meant to be together, and make no effort to pursue Yona.
Kan Tae-Jun for Yona. While it's implied that his earlier interest in her was purely in pursuit of her throne, later he does come to have a genuine crush on her. However, as in-denial about it as he is, even he can tell that Yona's come to love Hak.

In a completely odd turn around, Hayate the Combat Butler has something of this between Hinagiku, Ayumu, and Hayate. Hayate does notice Ayumu's affection for him (helped by the fact that she's the first of the unwanted harem to have confessed), even stating that they could have been dating, but Ayumu realizes that Hinagiku is the one he's infatuated with, and thus invokes this trope on herself by trying to get Hinagiku to admit her own feelings for Hayate (though she hopes Hina wouldn't mind sharing...). It doesn't help at all that Hinagiku herself is trying to play matchmaker between Ayumu and Hayate because She Wants Her Beloved to Be Happy.
Also, Miki for Hinagiku, as Miki realizes the Incompatible Orientationness of her situation, to her regret. But that doesn't stop her teasing of Hinagiku one bit.

Very briefly on The Big Bang Theory, Raj to Penny. The reasons are a little complicated, Penny was having dinner at Sheldon's apartment with Raj and, because Sheldon can be hard to be around, was drinking a little too much. Sheldon went to bed and while she continued talking with Raj she confessed she still had feelings for Leonard but he was now taken in a very serious relationship. The combination of alcohol and both feeling romantically frustrated ended with them waking up in bed together the next morning. Raj interpreted it as him being Penny's "#2" after Leonard in the social group, while she was too embarrassed and apologized for leading him on. Unusual for the trope once the dust settles Penny and Raj do become closer friends Also Raj reveals to Penny that they actually never slept together and instead just fell asleep, much to her relief.
Leonard viewed himself as this with Penny during the first season, at one point ready to sell his geeky collectibles because he felt they would be a deterrent to Penny's interest. Penny was largely ignorant of his crush until later in the season, and her feelings for him grew as she realized how different he was to the obnoxious meatheads she would normally date.
When Penny became a pharmaceutical salesperson, one of her clients, Dr. Lorvis, becomes smitten with her and goes to her apartment to woo her. It seems he took her flirting sales tactics too seriously, a problem he also had with the woman at the pet store who got him to buy an iguana and later with Sheldon's girlfriend Amy.

In Princess Evangile, Tamie repeatedly flirts with Masaya and hints that she likes him repeatedly. However, due to his close involvement with the White Lily and Rose Society girls, she decides not to try anything further. Thankfully, this is subverted in W Happiness, where she gets her own route, and, in a realization, flirts with Masaya more and manages to get to date him.

Tiger & Bunny's Word of God confirms that Karina is unlikely to have any luck when it comes to her crush on Kotetsu — for reasons ranging from a rather big age difference to Kotetsu being married (though widowed, he is still devoted to his wife) with a kid.

Boq from Wicked would qualify. Galinda diverts his attention with Nessarose but he covets a long-lasting infatuation with her, so much so that he attempts to declare his feelings for her... at her engagement party.
Elphaba also sees herself as this towards Fiyero, as reflected by the page quote. When Fiyero and Elphaba do get together near the end of the play, Glinda finds herself in this position, singing a reprise of Elphaba's earlier song.

Valkyria Chronicles has a few cases of these among the supporting members of Squad 7; Noce has a thing for Alicia (who loves Welkin), Jann really likes Largo (who is both straight and in love with Eleanor), and Juno has a crush on Welkin (who only has eyes for Alicia).
Valkyria Chronicles III has a couple (heh) examples among the Nameless; Ilmari has a crush on Riela (who has an obvious crush on Kurt), while Margit develops feelings for Kurt (who is already in a Love Triangle with Riela and Imca). While Ilmari and Margit both eventually decide to let their beloveds be happy with each other, Riela's epilogue shows that they still can't stop themselves from Drowning Their Sorrows at Kurt's and Riela's wedding.

Mazinger Z: Boss had a painfully obvious crush on Sayaka. Of course, given that she's The Hero's Tsundere girlfriend and he's the Gonkish comic relief, he doesn't stand a chance (although some people would argue by the end of the original Manga, he actually does have a chance, judging from how Sayaka acts in front of him, but by this time, either he realized he has no chance or he already become such a good friend with Koji, that he doesn't care about it anymore).
And in Great Mazinger he had a huge crush on Jun. It was played painfully straight.

Therkla is this for Elan in The Order of the Stick. This is complicated by the fact that she is eventually ordered to kill him, but she defies said orders and declares her love for him. Unfortunately for her, Elan is already in a committed relationship with Haley, and has no interest in cheating or leaving her, even though they're miles away from each other at the time. Therkla eventually lays dying in Elan's arms, and when Elan brings up the possibility of resurrection, she asks him if he would leave Haley to be with her if she came back to life. He sadly tells her no, and she dies not wishing to be Raised.

Persona 4:
Yosuke has a crush on his upperclassman Saki Konishi, based on her being one of the few people who is nice to him. After she is murdered, he finds out she actually resented him for multiple reasons, the crush being one of them. Even if said resentment was just her Shadow saying things that sound true, Saki only felt pity for Yosuke at best and had a secret boyfriend he didn't know about.
Teddie with every girl he meets. Having been created out of the desire to feel loved, Teddie is actually serious about winning the hearts of all the female cast, and gets even more serious if he meets a non-human girl, like Aigis or Labrys. Unfortunately for Teddie, his immaturity, perverted habits, and lack of commitment fail to win any girl over.

Persona 5: Morgana has a massive crush on Ann. He refers to her as "Lady Ann" exclusively, fawns over her, and any attempts to insult her "chastity" gets Morgana instantly angry. But physically being a cat is just the main problem with Morgana's attempts at wooing her, and is also the reason no one tries to help him or even comment on the situation. For her part, Ann either doesn't notice Morgana's attempts to impress her, or notices and pretends not to. Even then, she's implied to be in love with Joker even if she wasn't part of a Romance Sidequest.

Batman Eternal has Jason Todd (Robin II/Red Hood II) confess his love for Barbara Gordon (Batgirl I)... by reminding her of the first time they met, and her telling him that he'll never be Dick Grayson (Robin I/Nightwing/Batman III), Jason's older "brother" and Babs' first love. Notably, Dick was presumed dead at the time. Jason and Babs have a small moment, but nothing romantic. At the end of the story, Jason confesses all of his feelings... in a voicemail which he then deletes. About a year later, Dick comes back and goes back to having mutual sexual tension with Babs.

The Overwatch fandom sees this as an aspect of the Junkrat/Mei ship: Junkrat/Jamison Fawkes has a crush on Mei-Ling Zhou, but because he's a loud, crass, filthy, bomb-throwing career criminal, his attempts at flirting just annoy her. Not that all the strikeouts stop him from trying, and Mei does have feelings for him she doesn't want to admit.

Crais is interested in Aeryn in Farscape, and it takes her a long time to realise that's why Crichton's acting like a two-year-old around her. Of course, the fact that Crais continually called her "Officer Sun" is probably one of the reasons it didn't occur to her that he was interested in that way.

The Legend of Zelda features characters who have an unrequited crush, usually on the titular princess, but never get her interest.
Groose in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is hopelessly in love in the headmaster's daughter, Zelda, which is why he bullies her closest male friend, Link. When Zelda goes missing and discovers what happened, he goes Wrong Genre Savvy and believes he's destined to save her and earn her affections. He's absolutely crushed to learn he's no hero and eventually comes to accept Zelda will never return his feelings.
Osfala, one of the sages from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds has the same problem, being just as Wrong Genre Savvy as Groose and thinking he's destined to be a hero and earn the affections of Princess Zelda. One kidnapping and eventual rescue later, Osfala accepts he's no hero.
According to Kass in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, his mentor, a Sheikah who served as the court poet, had fallen for Princess Zelda. However, she only had eyes for Link, who she was cold and distant towards until he saved her life. Granted this Shiekah could have been an Unreliable Narrator, but the Ship Tease between Link and Zelda does suggest this wasn't just his jealousy at work. He got over this when Link nearly dies saving her, forcing him into a 100-year sleep in the Shrine of Resurrection and decides to dedicate songs to help him when he wakes up.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask has two on both sides. Cremia apparently has a crush on Kafei, who's firmly in love with Anju and is planning to marry her. Anju isn't totally convinced of Kafei's love for her, however, since he goes missing a few days before their wedding because he's been turned into a child and had his precious Sun Mask, a token of his affection, stolen from him. Anju's mother assumes the worst and insists that he and Cremia are having an affair. Meanwhile, one of Mutoh's carpenters has a crush on Anju and threatens Link if he speaks to him while wearing Kafei's Mask.

Steven Universe:
Jamie the mailman develops a crush on Garnet in the episode "Love Letters". He doesn't know that she is a fusion of two gems who deeply love each other. After Steven and Connie's attempt to get him off her back gently gave him the wrong idea, she helps him get over his crush by making him see that Love at First Sight, which he based his feelings on, isn't real.
Mayor Dewey has a crush on Pearl. Unfortunately, Pearl only has had eyes for Rose Quartz, who gave up her physical form for Steven to be born. More than that, Pearl is completely disinterested in humans (Rose is the only gem who's expressed romantic interest in humans), and it took years of prodding from Steven before she finally started a friendship with Greg. The only human she ever showed interest in is a woman, who just so happened to resemble Rose.

The Flash (2014):
Played with, but ultimately subverted in regards to Barry and Iris. Barry Allen spent most of his life as this to his best friend Iris West. Iris remained oblivious to his feelings for years, and she didn't find out until Barry finally confessed to her. Unfortunately, by that point, Iris was in a serious relationship with Eddie Thawne. The subversion is that it's obvious he isn't a Hopeless Suitor. Barry and Iris had so much Unresolved Sexual Tension between them that Everyone Can See It, including Eddie and eventually Barry himself (thanks to Time Travel). Iris just continued to deny the truth of what was happening between them because she did love Eddie (though not as much as she did Barry), and didn't want to face the possibility that she was choosing the Wrong Guy First.
Eddie Thawne in regards to Iris West. The problem isn't that they didn't love each other, it's the fact that Iris clearly loved Barry more and just didn't want to admit it, to others and to herself. The last straw was the revelation that Barry and Iris were married in the future — after that, Eddie realized that no matter how hard he tried, no matter how much he loved Iris, Iris would always love Barry more, even if she had yet to realize it. This led to them briefly breaking up.
Linda Park was also this to Barry. While Barry did genuinely like her, his feelings for Iris were just too strong for their relationship to go anywhere.
Played with in regards to Patty Spivot. Patty was the closest Barry had ever come to moving on from Iris West, who, at the time, was still mourning Eddie's death. However, Barry ultimately couldn't tell her that he was the Flash, for fear of compromising her dream of becoming a CSI, which would take her out of Central City. This difference in goals and Barry's own closed-off nature doomed their relationship. Patty was a Hopeless Suitor because Barry couldn't find it in himself to be as open with her as he is with Iris.

Although she doesn't seem to mind Sion in the sequel game Melty Blood, possibly because, of all the girls that fall for Shiki, he shows less of a romantic interest in her than any other heroine (except Satchin).

Janine in The Real Ghostbusters was this to Egon in the first seasons. Albeit with time, Egon started to reciprocate and they become Official Couple after the sixth season and in the Sequel Series Extreme Ghostbusters. Which, by-the-way, has a similar case with Eduardo and his crush on Kilie.

Persona
Persona 3: Kenji Tomochika has a crush on a teacher. He somehow starts believing she likes him back, only to be crushed by the revelation that she has a fiance, and is understandably creeped out by Kenji's feelings. Ironically, Kenji's Childhood Friend Rio Iwasaki has a crush on him and tries confessing to him to sort out her feelings. He replies that he likes her as much as he likes ramen.
Persona 4:
Yosuke has a crush on his upperclassman Saki Konishi, based on her being one of the few people who is nice to him. After she is murdered, he finds out she actually resented him for multiple reasons, the crush being one of them. Even if said resentment was just her Shadow saying things that sound true, Saki only felt pity for Yosuke at best and had a secret boyfriend he didn't know about.
Teddie with every girl he meets. Having been created out of the desire to feel loved, Teddie is actually serious about winning the hearts of all the female cast, and gets even more serious if he meets a non-human girl, like Aigis or Labrys. Unfortunately for Teddie, his immaturity, perverted habits, and lack of commitment fail to win any girl over.
Persona 5: Morgana has a massive crush on Ann. He refers to her as "Lady Ann" exclusively, fawns over her, and any attempts to insult her "chastity" gets Morgana instantly angry. But physically being a cat is just the main problem with Morgana's attempts at wooing her, and is also the reason no one tries to help him or even comment on the situation. For her part, Ann either doesn't notice Morgana's attempts to impress her, or notices and pretends not to. Even then, she's implied to be in love with Joker even if she wasn't part of a Romance Sidequest.

In Grisaia no Kajitsu Chizuru shows every bit as much of a crush on Yuuji as anyone but doesn't get any kind of acknowledgement. In Grisaia no Meikyuu's bonus section she got even more fun poked at her expense thanks to her fantasizing about him in public. In Grisaia no Rakuen Kazuki goes through a list of everyone on the island and rating their chances with Yuuji. Chizuru is the only one who gets a zero percent chance, which she acknowledges with a laugh since her family wouldn't approve anyway. That said, she gets a bone thrown to her with a bonus H scene that would actually fit neatly into canon without a ripple. And even the treatment before is better than what Millie gets: Punches to the face and complete lack of mention in the epilogue.

Fire Emblem Gaiden:
Catria's original Expy was actually Clair, who had a crush on Alm. Since Alm marries Celica in the end, she ends up settling for Gray despite still having feelings for Alm. That last detail is removed in Echoes, implying that she did get over Alm and treating Gray as a genuine Second Love.
Echoes: Shadows of Valentia adds a new character, Faye, who also has a crush on Alm, though unlike Clair it's implied she doesn't wed and never really gets over him.

The Ouran High School Host Club manga gives us both Hikaru AND Kaoru as Hopeless Suitors for Haruhi's affections. It's mostly Hikaru since Kaoru decides to confess to Haruhi telling her he loves her, but that there is still someone more important to him (his brother). After this Kaoru tells Hikaru he's stepped back and will support him as he goes against his love rival, Tamaki. It was already a losing battle for Hikaru, but he gave it a try anyway.

Steve Urkel in Family Matters is a special case in that he knows he's the Hopeless Suitor — he's just not willing to let that stop him, hence the Catch Phrase "I'm wearing you down, baby!" His only shot at Laura was the transformation chamber that turned him into Stephan Urquelle, the epitome of smooth and cool. Steve Urkel himself managed to win Laura over in the show's last season, after some 8 years of Laura insisting on Just Friends.

Samurai Harem: Asu no Yoichi:
Ayame is this towards Yoichi, although it's because of her sister Ibuki; the fact that she doesn't seem to spend much time with him; and when she does, she seems hostile. Then she wonders why he doesn't seem to romantically notice her.
Washizu is this towards Ibuki, who never really acknowledges his feelings, either because he can't say it to her directly, or when he tries, it gets misinterpreted.

Mega Man X8 introduces a new member of the Maverick Hunters' Mission Control, a very Stripperiffic (which is saying something, since she's a Reploid) Layer. She obviously has feelings for Zero. However, the latter is not only a Celibate Hero, but he's also very clueless to these advances.
This seems like a case of Zero being handed the Idiot Ball or Chaste Ball in this case. Fans can only speculate that Iris had a lot more pull on him than originally indicated. Could be a failed Author's Saving Throw, or even just Plot Induced Stupidity, on the script writer's part as a whole.

Freddy vs. Jason: Lori has two of them in the form of Linderman and Blake. It's painfully obvious Linderman has feelings for her and goes to great lengths despite all the mockery he goes through. However, he realizes she's still in love with her first boyfriend Will and gives up. Blake is much more straightforward than Linderman, but Lori has even less interest in him as a result. Again, Lori saving herself for Will doesn't help much.

In CLANNAD, pretty much any girl who's not named Nagisa in the anime. All of the main girls even show up at Tomoya's house in episode 18 with food after he got expelled taking the blame for a fight for Tomoyo. Tomoyo and Kyou even blame the awkward lunch date on him for not making it clear who he likes. But at the end of the episode, after a tennis game, Tomoya indirectly makes it clear who he wants to be with, crushing all of their hopes in one fell swoop.
For those of you who refuse to accept the Official Couple that the anime chose, luckily there are two episodes where Tomoyo and Kyou both get a shot with Tomoya, and how their lives would've played out had Nagisa not of been there. And there's always the Visual Novel too.
The biggest example is Ryou. Even in the visual novel, there is no happy end if you choose her as your girlfriend.

Maken-ki!: Usui and Celia find themselves pining after Himegami and Takeru respectively.
In the manga, while Usui does have genuine feelings for Himegami, he's mostly driven by lust. Which she's well aware of, because it's the reason she doesn't take him seriously. Her attitude towards him ranges from indifference, to sociable at best. But it's finally subverted in chapter 65, when she tells him he juus~sst might have a chance with her after all.
Celia is actually an inversion. She has it all: looks, a stunning figure, a singing career, and she's a pro wrestling champion. All she's missing is Takeru's love, especially now that he knows she's really a guy. But she continues to try anyway.

Gamers!: Chiaki, as noted by her friend Tasuku. To make a long story... slightly less long; Keita and Karen fall in love and, after many trials and tribulations, eventually start a relationship. In the meantime, Tasuku gets Keita acquainted with Chiaki, who was pretty much Keita in a skirt. At first, Chiaki was hostile to Keita due to some differences in their gaming preferences. Over time, however, they worked out their differences and became friends. Well, Keita considers her a friend; Chiaki actually fell in love with him, partially because they were actually friends in online gaming under aliases. Chiaki put 2 and 2 together but Keita didn't. Afraid a romance would ruin things between them (by that point, Keita and Karen had started dating), Chiaki asked her sister Konoha to pretend she was the person behind Chiaki's online accounts. To make things even more complicated than they already were, Konoha fell in love with Keita as well.

Peanuts had quite a few:
Charlie Brown was one towards the Little Red-Haired Girl, Sally was one towards Linus, and most of all, Lucy was one towards Schroeder. (Many fans had to wonder just why he even let her into his house to bother him, as she could often be an outright vandal when he ignored her, destroying his piano on two separate occasions.)
There were times Schroeder could get along with Lucy. Also, when she was away for a while, he realized that she was his muse, much to his chagrin.

In Grounded for Life, Brad pined after Lily and assumed that her emotions were divided between himself (whom she barely noticed and openly discouraged any kind of advance) and her boyfriend Dean (whom she was all too ready to get hot and heavy with). Eventually, Brad decided to "back down" and openly referenced the concept that they were in a "love triangle" to Dean, whose only concern was "The two endpoints don't touch, do they?" Though it might have been subverted later on when Lily broke up with Dean and ended up dating Brad anyway. Who's hopeless now?

Fairy Tail
Juvia, whose crush on Gray is so huge that it can get her to forfeit major battles and lose focus of absolutely anything she was doing before seeing him. Her "rival in love" isn't actually interested in Gray, though. There was just a misunderstanding. She does get to spend time with him, but until she joins Fairy Tail she's just a Stalker with a Crush. Things are looking up for her though, as by the series end, Gray starts to show that he reciprocates her feelings.
Jet and Droy have occasionally fought with each other for their Childhood Friend Levy's affections, but she's only ever viewed them as friends. And that was before she started to obviously crush and fall in love with Gajeel, to both of their despair. And any lingering hopes they might have had were blown out of the water when it turns out by series end Levy is not just in a relationship with Gajeel, but pregnant.

In Love Hina, while Mutsumi seemed likely to snag Keitaro due to Naru not being able to clarify her feelings for him, the other girls never really had much of a chance, particularly Shinobu and later Motoko. Su hints at liking Keitaro, but never really pursues it.

Danny Phantom:
A minor case in an episode has Valerie being pursued by a geek named Nathan, a situation she is not in favor of. She ends up dating Danny briefly instead.
Danny also has a case of this with popular girl Paulina. He tries in vain to hit on her and get her to like him, but certain situations prevent him from his crush blossoming into something greater. He does eventually move on and gets together with Sam.
Vlad is a more straight example. The show makes it all too obvious that Maddie will only ever love Jack, now or in an alternate reality where she married Vlad. Even as a computer program, one that is specifically designed to love and acknowledge him and disparage Jack, Maddie still rejects him and loves Jack (or "The Jack Program" in this case).

In Pumpkin Scissors we are given Schultz and Alice. Schultz likes Alice even enough to shamelessly pursue her even though she's engaged to Leonir Taylor. This is not out of selfishness really; Alice was, after all, put into an arranged marriage with Taylor. However, chances are even if she wasn't engaged, she would probably not consider Schultz because of her dedication to her job.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask has two on both sides. Cremia apparently has a crush on Kafei, who's firmly in love with Anju and is planning to marry her. Anju isn't totally convinced of Kafei's love for her, however, since he goes missing a few days before their wedding because he's been turned into a child and had his precious Sun Mask, a token of his affection, stolen from him. Anju's mother assumes the worst and insists that he and Cremia are having an affair. Meanwhile, one of Mutoh's carpenters has a crush on Anju and threatens Link if he speaks to him while wearing Kafei's Mask.

Arrowverse
Arrow: Laurel turns out to be this for her ex-boyfriend Oliver when she confesses her love for him in Season Four. A particularly tragic example as when they were together Oliver cheated on her multiple times (with her sister Sara to boot) and hasn't shown any interest in her for years, including getting together with Sara again and excluding Laurel from his secret, crime-fighting life. It also puts the fact that Laurel spent two seasons watching Oliver fall in love with Felicity in a much more depressing light. Though Season Five subverts it, with the revelation the Oliver did love her, even when he was with Felicity (the season confirms that Laurel was his One True Love), but had given up on her because he believed he didn't deserve her, thinking himself to be the Hopeless Suitor — unfortunately, by the time he learned that Laurel didn't care about his faults and loved him anyway, she was already dead, and they lost their chance to be together for good this time, making it even more tragic.
The Flash (2014):
Played with, but ultimately subverted in regards to Barry and Iris. Barry Allen spent most of his life as this to his best friend Iris West. Iris remained oblivious to his feelings for years, and she didn't find out until Barry finally confessed to her. Unfortunately, by that point, Iris was in a serious relationship with Eddie Thawne. The subversion is that it's obvious he isn't a Hopeless Suitor. Barry and Iris had so much Unresolved Sexual Tension between them that Everyone Can See It, including Eddie and eventually Barry himself (thanks to Time Travel). Iris just continued to deny the truth of what was happening between them because she did love Eddie (though not as much as she did Barry), and didn't want to face the possibility that she was choosing the Wrong Guy First.
Eddie Thawne in regards to Iris West. The problem isn't that they didn't love each other, it's the fact that Iris clearly loved Barry more and just didn't want to admit it, to others and to herself. The last straw was the revelation that Barry and Iris were married in the future — after that, Eddie realized that no matter how hard he tried, no matter how much he loved Iris, Iris would always love Barry more, even if she had yet to realize it. This led to them briefly breaking up.
Linda Park was also this to Barry. While Barry did genuinely like her, his feelings for Iris were just too strong for their relationship to go anywhere.
Played with in regards to Patty Spivot. Patty was the closest Barry had ever come to moving on from Iris West, who, at the time, was still mourning Eddie's death. However, Barry ultimately couldn't tell her that he was the Flash, for fear of compromising her dream of becoming a CSI, which would take her out of Central City. This difference in goals and Barry's own closed-off nature doomed their relationship. Patty was a Hopeless Suitor because Barry couldn't find it in himself to be as open with her as he is with Iris.

But in a twist of cruel irony, she gets the last laugh from beyond the grave when her sacrifice is the reason Ryuho cites for NOT getting in a relationship with Mimori in the end.

Kazuichi Soda from 'Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is this big time toward Sonia Nevermind. Throughout the game, all he tries to do is win over the affections of Sonia. However, because of how forceful he is about it, Sonia always turns him down and will even take times to take certain jabs at him (like even saying that she wished he could've been the culprit of a case so he would be killed off). Plus, Sonia had the hots for Gundham Tanaka who is the only person that understand his erratic behavior.
Interestingly, if he tries to pursue her in the Bonus Mode part of the game, Hajime is this for Peko Pekoyama. Hajime develops genuine feelings for Peko but Peko makes it very clear to him that she only has eyes for her childhood friend, Fuyuhiko.

Just about every guy who isn't Edward. Most of the guys at school have either tried to court Bella or had secret crushes that were never revealed. Mike Newton especially is a sensitive guy who tried for about two books to win her over. Poor guy.
Jacob is definitely this. He had known Bella for a long time and had helped her get through her Heroic BSoD after Edward left her. And yet, despite all of his kindness and devotion, he's rejected for Edward. Any pity for him is lost when he develops an Entitled to Have You behavior.

Randoll's mishap with women extended to its obscure PlayStation's visual novel game starring a new protagonist Seiichiro Shiba. Randoll has a go at Shiba's love interest Rena Yuuki, which only ends with him getting beaten horribly, just like how he lost to Hayato in the TV series.

Gantz:
Kei Kuruno kind of suffers from this, since his love interest Kichimoto has fallen for his best friend Kato.
Reika also suffers from this, since her love interest Kei Kuruno has fallen for Tae.

In a slight twist on the harem genre, none of the girls aside from Aoi in Ai Yori Aoshi ever really had a chance. To blow up any shipping attempts, the first few episodes makes it pretty clear that Kaoru can't/won't choose anyone other than Aoi.

In An Echo in the Darkness by Francine Rivers, there’s one for each side of the Official Couple:
Alexander tries to confess his love to Hadassah, but she shuts him down with a Love You and Everybody speech because she is still in love with Marcus despite thinking their relationship is impossible.
It’s genderflipped with Tabitha, who falls in love with Marcus and hopes he’ll propose, only to be disappointed by his lack of attention because he is pining for Hadassah despite thinking she’s dead.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, Yusei and Aki came close, but went their separate ways at the finale. Jack's situation was worse; he had an Unwanted Harem of three women competing for his affection, but in the end, he decided he was too Married to the Job to choose one of them, and let them all down easy (this despite previously being an Official Couple with one of them before a Relationship Reset Button came out of nowhere).

The The Irregular at Magic High School setting is one where total, head-over-heels, can't-live-without-you soulmates, so when Masaki falls in love with one of a couple, the poor guy gets his heart broken. Even worse is the fact that he initially accepted the girl's decision, but Masaki's family forced him to court her anyway for political reasons.

Tsukihime:
Akiha in the canon ending. Shiki will generally notice that all the girls around him are attractive, except for Akiha, as she's his adoptive sister. Akiha tends to respond very poorly to all his love interests except Hisui, not just Arcueid.
Although she doesn't seem to mind Sion in the sequel game Melty Blood, possibly because, of all the girls that fall for Shiki, he shows less of a romantic interest in her than any other heroine (except Satchin).

In Hajime no Ippo, being a Hopeless Suitor is a national sport. The main character falls in Love at First Sight with Kumi, the sister of Mashiba and Kumi ends up falling for him too. Although Neither Of Them Can Spit It Out, they basically act as a couple. Then Itagaki Manabu, Ippo's kouhai appears and falls for Kumi, while his younger sister Nanako and Iimura Mari both fall for Ippo. Knowing Ippo and Kumi are made for each other (which Nanako can't seem to admit), Manabu later asks Mari out on the pretext that they are both "runner-ups"! Add to all this that Manabu's rival Imai Kyousuke is also a Hopeless Suitor for Nanako and you have a fine little mess. Oh, and in the early volumes Kimura falls for a nurse and, when he thinks this is serious, discovers she has a man. Seconds before entering the ring for a match. Ouch.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
Xander Harris in the first season. He gets over it.
Spike fills this role in Season Five after he falls for Buffy. He recognises that a relationship with her is probably a bad idea and that he probably doesn't have a chance to begin with - but at the same time, he observes that the relationship she's currently in isn't really working for either party and feels that chance for success or not, a bloke's gotta try. He does eventually succeed in removing his rival, and much farther down the road, is finally able to date Buffy.

A sidequest in Mass Effect: Andromeda has a member of the Outcasts ask Ryder to pass along a message to a dancer in the Kadara slums that he's been imprisoned for failure to pay his debts. When Ryder passes the message along to the dancer, her reaction is annoyance. She'd told him to buzz off and leave her alone.

Krillin of Dragon Ball Z showed every sign of crushing hard on Bulma. She, of course, was deeply in love with Yamcha (until she wasn't) and Krillin himself was too easily cowed to even hint to her at his interest. Besides, he ends up married to another girl — Android #18.

Elaborated into an entire episode of How I Met Your Mother, crossing into Master of the Mixed Message. It referred to letting someone be on your "hook" where (intentionally or not) you allow someone to be enamored with you and you gather all the benefits of an ego-booster without having to commit to them, sometimes sprucing up your dialogue with "I can't be with you... right now." Ted was doing this by accident to a girl at the university library, and when he realized a girl was giving him the runaround too he sought to make things right with her. In a more long-term issue, Lily's high school boyfriend Scooter has shown up throughout the series and has made it clear he wants her back.

Wander over Yonder: After learning Lord Dominator is a lady, Lord Hater instantly develops a crush on her and his new obsession is to get her to fall in love with him. He tries making himself a car, sing a concert, and even make a cartoon about himself. He doesn't seem capable of seeing she's not interested. That is until "My Fair Hatey", where she spells it out in her Villain Song she's incapable and uninterested in romance, only destroying the galaxy. Though he seems to remember things differently in "The End of the Galaxy".

In the SHUFFLE! anime, although the series teases us as to who Rin ends up with, the biggest loser is probably Kaede, the girl he's living with. It gets worse when Rin does choose a girl to spend time with, and causes Kaede to go a little Yandere. Averted in the Visual Novel however, since you get to choose who Rin ends up with.

The Ulrich/Yumi pairing from Code Lyoko actually has two of these (William is a Romantic False Lead):
Sissi, who is crushing on Ulrich. However, even after losing his memory in one episode, Ulrich can't stand Sissi and would much rather be with Yumi.
Johnny, who has an all-too-blatant crush on Yumi. However, she'd rather be with Ulrich (and besides, Johnny is a little young for her). Hiroki (Yumi's little brother) even tells his friend how little chance he has with Ulrich around.
A minor version is Milly's affections towards Ulrich, only shown in a few episodes. Considering she is two or three years younger, that is why she was never considered a serious threat. The show really did dance around the Love Dodecahedron.

Zihark has had no interest in starting a new romantic relationship with anyone since he lost his important girlfriend, something he had attempted to tell Meg's father in Path of Radiance to no avail. In the end, Meg finds a different, off-screen husband and Zihark remains single.

Thomas Middleton's The Changeling has De Flores. He has a facial disability and his love interest, Beatrice insults and berates him constantly. He doesn't care. He goes as far as committing murder for her, but this is hardly a Woobie of any sort. His payment for one of the many schemes he devised to help her? Exactly what he's been after all along.... He wouldn't take anything else despite being offered jewels and money.
