* It doesn't play out like the typical scenario, but - [[Comicbook/SheHulk Jennifer Walters]], as AmazonianBeauty as they come, had a long-standing crush on the MarvelUniverse take on [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHercules Hercules]]. Hercules' relationship with the actual amazons is not that great, Hippolyta is still infatuated with him; however, she's an evil violent StalkerWithACrush who will do whatever she can to sleep with him including [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale turning him into her sex slave]]. This trope is later subverted with her PsychopathicManChild daughter who hates him because of her mother's obsession with him.

* Also happens to ''Jason and the Argonauts'' in the first of Steeve Reeve's Film/{{Hercules}} movies. One wouldn't exactly call those Amazons "man-hating", but they did have a law on the books that required the men's deaths.

* [[PirateGirl Captain]] [[DarkActionGirl Bangladesh DuPree]] in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' - the only time she shows any sort of attraction to anyone is to the [[SuperSoldier ex-Jaeger]] Vole, more specifically [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120224#.VvFz-OKLTIV once he starts talking about why he's changing his allegiance]].
--> '''Vole:''' Dot's gonna be some '''''var!''''' Messy, terrible, civil var! De empire vill be in '''''flames!''''' De pipple vill be '''''crushed''''' between hyu! Hyu vill unleash an '''''ocean''''' ov blood! '''''Dis is more den Hy effer could heff hoped for!''''' IT VILL BE '''''GLORIOUS!'''''
** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20140804#.VvFy_OKLTIU It only gets better]] once Gil pulls Vole out of the timestop and he ages hundreds of years in a few minutes - since Jaegers are immortal, this means him getting twice as tall, twice as broad, teeth as long as your hand, spikes growing out of his shoulders...
--> '''Gil:''' [=DuPree=], I'm really sorry about this. I'm doing my best to-\\
'''Bang:''' Oh... Oh '''''wow! Gil!''''' Is it '''''Christmas?''''' My '''''birthday?!'''''

* One of the stories in Creator/PhilFoglio's ''XXXenophile''' series involves an amazon who ''can't'' bed anyone but a warrior who bests her, and who is constantly driven to challenge men. The story culminates (ahem) when a man bests her ''at chess''. (The gods backing the man and the woman are, respectively, inordinately pleased and incredibly annoyed).

* As mentioned in Comic Books above, Maxima also pursued Superman in [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries the Dini-verse]]. At the end of that episode, she got over Superman and set her sights on SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}}! Whether that went anywhere is unknown, since the episode was Maxima's only appearance in the Franchise/{{DCAU}}.

** Subverted in the Comicbook/{{New 52}}. Diana is certainly impressed by [[Characters/SupermanTheCharacter Superman's]] power, she's attracted to Clark more because of his [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan nobility and compassion]]. Their relationship even begins only after he reaches out and helps her out when she's [[HeroicSelfDeprecation questioning her worth as a heroine]].

** Spike was a LUST interest initially, not a romantic interest. Later episodes saw the two of them develop a genuine, meaningful friendship that seemed more important to them than romance. Many of the things Spike did after realising he was attracted to Buffy ''were'' more selfless than lustful anyway (e.g.: willing to die being tortured by Glory rather than reveal that [[spoiler: Buffy's sister was the MacGuffinGirl the BigBad was seeking]], being protective of Buffy's family, [[spoiler: getting his soul back for her]])... also played with in that he disliked his feelings for her at first, then succumbed to the lustful aspects, and ''then'' proved more meaningful interesting in her... Even then, he rarely came close to beating her.

* {{Defied|Trope}} in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' and the spin-off ''Film/AgentCarter]]''. Peggy Carter is a British Army Major, co-founder of S.H.I.E.L.D and a bona-fide ActionGirl. So ''why'' does she keep a photo of ''pre''-serum-boosted Steve in her desk? The implication, of course, is that Peggy didn't fall in love with Captain America, the pinnacle of human perfection and the infallible personification of the American way, but [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan she instead fell in love with]] Steve Rogers, the scrawny runt from Brooklyn who [[NiceGuy wouldn't even hesitate to]] pick a fight with a bully who could {{Curb Stomp|Battle}} him to uphold a grieving widow's honour, or dive on a grenade to save people who were nothing but jerks to him.
