* In ''Fanfic/NukumeDori'', surprisingly, [[AllLovingHero Subaru]] becomes a taker. After establishing their relationship, Subaru demands that Seishirou show sincere affection and attention to him, but Subaru is either too embarrassed, scared or absorbed into other people's problems to do the same in return. He gets better.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': Any relationship with Harley Quinn, where she will be ''The Giver''. She invokes this trope being the lover of ComicBook/TheJoker and Poison Ivy's friend. Justified because those two are {{The Sociopath}}s and can only be ''The takers''. The truly ''disturbing'' thing about Harley is that she looks for this type of relationship (The Joker and Poison Ivy maybe could ''like'' Harley, but as {{The Sociopath}}s, they cannot ''truly care'' about her. In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'' we see that Harley has this type of relationship with her granddaughters.

* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'': "Take what you can!" "Give nothing back!"



* Series/{{House}} and Wilson are a little unusual, since their relationship, while strange and disturbing, actually seems to ''work'' for both of them -- House's selfishness has prevented him from having any other friends, and while Wilson keeps embracing vulnerable people and nursing them towards health and self-confidence, he invariably loses all interest in them once they no longer need him to take care of them. The only person who could put up with the ultimate Giver in the long run is the ultimate Taker, and vice versa.

* Harley Quinn is like this to her beloved, ComicBook/TheJoker. She helps him with all his plans, breaks him out of Arkham over and over again, and always come back to him. DependingOnTheWriter, The Joker may give her nothing more in return than tolerance, or a bullet to the heart.

The other variant is a bit more disturbing. Rather than the Taker being in charge, it's the Giver who is in control. It's not that they're [[ChronicHeroSyndrome pathologically compelled]] to [[GoodSamaritan generosity]], but a deep desire to {{control|Freak}} and even ''own'' the Taker... so they work to make them completely psychologically and physically dependent, and may in fact cripple their ability to do some (or all) things. This is the hallmark of MyBelovedSmother, who may impair or retard their child's growth to keep them [[MommasBoy dependent.]] If romantic, the Giver may be a StalkerWithACrush or a {{Yandere}} who has managed to start a relationship with their target and then proceeded to demolish their self esteem in the guise of "helping" them. Expect them to say "I did it all for you", and justify alienating the Taker from past friends because "TheyWereHoldingYouBack." If the Taker should realize this and work up the resolve to break the cycle, the Giver [[AxCrazy will not be pleased]].

* In ''VideoGame/SilentHill2'', Mary, James' wife, was quite demanding and her mood swings only made her even more demanding. [[spoiler: Mary dying from a terminal illness understandably made her become all take and no give towards James, which also took a tool on his emotional being. In her final moments, Mary writes a letter to James and confesses that she had been incredibly selfish and wished she had been more supportive of him during her final days.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/TheVerySecretDiary'': Tom and Ginny's relationship is this, portrayed in the most disturbing manner in possible. Tom is the Taker, taking all of Ginny's life force and draining her of any free will and almost all sense of self, and Ginny, desperate for a friend, gives and gives and ''gives'', not realizing Tom's true nature until it's too late. Tom, however, paints himself as the selfless Giver who patiently listens to all of Ginny's problems and is always there for her, making Ginny feel like the selfish, abusive Taker who takes advantage of his kindness, further manipulating her.
