** Sheldon Cooper from is a Taker with his all his friends being the Givers, expecting others to succumb to his every whim, from what they eat each day to driving him around no matter how it might inconvenience others, and only does things for others when he literally has no other choice. On the other hand, he does have his PetTheDog moments, such as loaning Penny money on ''very'' generous terms knowing he'll likely never get it back; hiring Raj as an assistant so he could remain in the country when his research grant (and his visa) were cancelled; and saving Leonard's life from the rocket fuel accident that destroyed the elevator (and protecting Leonard's reputation by lying to the landlord, police, and Homeland Security about the exact circumstances). He also recommended Leonard for the North Sea research trip when it was in no way to his benefit (either professionally or personally) to do so.

* In the ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' fanfiction [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12295056/1/Recovery Recovery]], this is how Weiss feels about the relationship between Yang and Blake, with Yang as the "Giver" and Blake the "Taker". She understands that Yang loves Blake and the feeling may indeed be mutual, but her problem lies with how despite Yang giving Blake so much affection and care, in the end Blake still threw it away to run off after Beacon's fall. [[spoiler:The fact she [[GreenEyedMonster has her own feelings for Yang]] [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy that she tried to bury for their sakes]] does play a bit into it, but Yang herself comes to realize it after a bit of soul-searching and also decides that while she still loves Blake, she would rather be with [[SecondLove Weiss]], the person who's been trying to help her all this time]].
-->'''Weiss''': When has she ''ever'' been here, Yang?! Where does she always go when you need her? Iíve watched it happen time and again. She choose Sun over you, she didnít believe you about Mercury, and she left you after you risked your life for her at Beacon. Do you honestly think so little of me that you believe I would stand in the way if you two were actually good for each other? [[spoiler:You might not believe me when I say how I feel about you, but how on Remnant could I let someone I love keep getting hurt and say nothing. I know that you canít buy someone's love Yang, just as much as I know that loving someone who keeps wounding you isnít healthy.]]

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'', there's the implication that [[spoiler:Ginny's relationship with Tom Riddle was the second variant, obviously with Riddle as the manipulative Giver of his companionship and Ginny as the controlled Taker]]. Of course, it goes the other way as well. [[spoiler:As Ginny eagerly poured out her heart and soul to Tom Riddle, he fed off of it to the point where he had sucked nearly all of the life out of her.]]

** In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' a grieving Cho forces her friend Marietta to accompany her to the Hog's Head and later to D.A. meetings where she is obviously uncomfortable and is hinted to not completely believe Harry since she is concerned by things her Ministry working mother says and ultimately does not take a resistance movement organized to prepare them to fight ''Voldemort'' as seriously as her discomfort with breaking the rules.

*The poem ''Bitten by the Snake'' implies this sort of relationship, where the titular snake is the taker and the mouse was the giver, the latter realizing this fully upon being bitten. She's implied to turn out better for it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' despite Stan being a {{Jerkass}} he is very much The Giver to Francine who obsessively spoils their kids while placing all the responsibility of disciplining them on him. The only time she sees anything wrong with this is when Stan tries to spend time for himself forcing her to deal with the consequences of her actions. She has also shown many instances of MoralMyopia sheís unwilling to spend time with his mother yet expects him to be okay with her parents, she can look at other men but he canít look at other woman. Even there sex life is this as its fundamentally him meticulously mastering everything she told him she enjoys and her being disappointed that he doesnít do things that she didnít tell him she wanted him to do. Finally Stan has repeatedly given up things for Francine his time, money, even his life, and most recently his immortal soul.

* Defied ''hard'' in the Music/OingoBoingo song "Not My Slave". The narrator tries to talk the girl he loves out of her submissive tendencies, insisting she's not his property and that he just wants her to be happy...and that just because she's free doesn't mean he's abandoning her.
