Fred and Daphne on a (awkward) pretend date during a case.

Fred Jones and Daphne Blake are members of Mystery Inc., who have a hidden attraction to one another, which can sometimes cause romantic tension between the two, especially when one of them gets the attention of another person.


As pre-teens, Fred was always impressed at how Daphne figured out the most obvious answers whenever he couldn't figure them out and usually splits-up with him. After growing up, Fred started to develop feelings for Daphne and gets jealous whenever she starts paying attention to another man.

Also as pre-teens, Daphne was usually annoyed at Fred's cluelessness whenever he did something really dumb. As young adults, she also started to have feelings of love for Fred, but is too shy to confess and evades whenever it comes up and also gets jealous when Fred hangs out with a different girl. Each are unaware that the other feels the same.
