** Variant with the Valyrians prior to the Conquest, where there was a standardised policy of arranging a marriage between...[[IncestIsRelative the oldest son and daughter of the same family]]. Aegon the Conqueror tried to have it both ways by marrying one of his sisters out of duty and the other out of love, although apart from Maegor I all the Targaryen kings descended from the younger.

* At least two of the girls in ''Toys/LittleAppleDolls'' have backstories of being bethrothed to [[OldManMarryingAChild men]]. It never ends up well. In one of the cases he locked the girl in a cage, apparently was going to steal her soul, and planned to turn her into a demon. She opted to [[DrivenToSuicide kill herself]] instead. Mind you, she was ''seven'' when she died.

* Many of the works of Creator/YasujiroOzu, considered to be one of the three undisputed masters of Japanese Cinema, deal with this, including his famed "Noriko" trilogy: ''Film/LateSpring'', ''Film/EarlySummer'', ''Film/TokyoStory''.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'''s ''entire plot'' revolves around the chaos created by two former training partners determined to force their children to wed, despite the vehement protests of the children in question (and, in the eyes of some readers, despite the [[BelligerentSexualTension ridiculously dysfunctional relationship between said children]]). Adding even ''more'' chaos to the mix is the fact that the son, through no intention of his own, has gathered an UnwantedHarem consisting of a {{Bifauxnen}} UnluckyChildhoodFriend with an ArrangedMarriage (he made a promise to take care of her always as kids, though he didn't remember that, and shortly afterwards his father agreed to engage him to her -- and then stole her dowry and Ranma both and ran off, leaving her behind), an AccidentalMarriage to an AnimeChineseGirl with large breasts, and a StalkerWithACrush who is enacting her own warped version of a RescueRomance (he saved her from a fall, having accidentally knocked her off the roof in the first place, so she's decided he's her destined lover). Then there's the guy who's in love with his [[GenderBender female form]] (and who also happens to be the strange girl's brother).

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', this turns out to be the cause of the events in the Phantom arc, as Lucy's father Jude hired Phantom to bring her back home just so he could have her take part in one of these. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome However, Lucy did come back...]] [[CallingTheOldManOut to tell him where he could stick it]].

* In ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'', the series' premiere ActionGirl, Tomoe Ame, is currently roped into an arranged marriage engagement by her young lord who gets talked into by a villainous adviser on the idea that she should be happy. Whether that kid will realize that he should have had the simple logic and decency to ask if she wanted it (she does not, but is too loyal a proper samurai to protest) is unanswered for now.

* ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'': In the Post-ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}} Krypton parents often choose their children' spouse via gene-matching, although this custom was being phased out by the time of [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Kal]] and [[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]]. A [[ComicBook/Supergirl2011 Supergirl story]] showed Alura wanting to get her daughter gene-matched, and Kara complaining she wanted to choose her partner freely.

* The financially-motivated version is brought up on some occasions in ''TheDeathOfTheVazirMukhtar'', as it was pretty popular mong European nobility in general and in early 19th century Russia in particular. Some characters refer to the main character's marriage with Princess Nina Chavchavadze as this, but note that the couple itself has been in love for quite some time prior to this.

* Kaori in ''{{Crescendo}}'' intended to go through with an ''omiai'' arranged marriage (and presumably does so offscreen on the occasions when the player fails to achieve her good ending, or chooses a different path).
