Female antagonists who use this trope are much less common than male examples, and are usually portrayed a bit differently. They're almost always [[LoveMakesYouCrazy motivated]] by a VillainousCrush (since VillainessesWantHeroes), and may even verge on being a [[{{Yandere}} really unstable]] AbhorrentAdmirer [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale rather than an outright villain]]; for some reason, female {{Gold Digger}}s are more likely to rely on seduction rather than coercion. Their male victims are also much more likely to foil the villainess' plan on their own, while female victims almost always [[DamselInDistress have to be rescued]] [[RescueRomance by their male love interests]].

[[spoiler:After he forgives her when he's told of [[PleaseSpareHimMyLiege her real role in his banishment]], and nearly they spend a night together. After Shen apparently kills Po, he decides to marry Lianne a day after, both out of love and [[AltarTheSpeed to cover their night]], leaving her no choice. However, when Lianne tells Shen at the altar that he'd have just needed to propose to her, he's [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone hit by massive compunctions]], interrupts the ceremony when it's Lianne's turn to say the marriage vows and gives her her freedom, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy having realized that he'd rather see her happy]] than chained to him on the road [[IveComeTooFar he doesn't believe he can step from]]. To his surprise, Lianne gives her marriage vows and [[IWillWaitForYou promises to wait for him]] before she leaves.]]

* The ''heroes'' ([[GrayAndGrayMorality sort of]]) of the {{Deryni}} novels pull this one -- in ''The Bishop's Heir'', the rebel princess is kidnapped, held captive, and then told she must marry protagonist King Kelson (so that her claim to lands will be once again joined to his royal line). He tells her he wants her to agree "willingly", but it's made clear to the user that he will apply MindRape if necessary. [[spoiler: She's killed instants after saying her vows, so the issue of sex is never dealt with.]] It's presented as the only way to end a protracted and bloody civil war, [[spoiler:which continues in the following book until all possible rival heirs are dead.]]

* In ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' the Morlocks seemed big on this, at least at first. Originally there was a rare female example where Angel's AbhorrentAdmirer, Callisto kidnapped him to force him to marry her, [[http://shirtless-superheroes.blogspot.com/2007/06/captive-angel.html as seen here.]]
