** Arranged marriages are Big Mom's ''modus operandi'' for obtaining more power for herself. She arranges political marriages between her children and potentially strong subordinates and organizations who wish to ally with her, creating a bond between her and her new allies. Trying to escape these marriages are one of Big Mom's {{Berserk Button}}s, as she has explosive cuffs she'll use on potential runaways and is perfectly willing to send hitmen after one of her own daughters who successfully ran away from such a marriage.

* In "Manga/OkusamaGaSeitoKaichou": Hayato and Ui's parents arranged their engagement, pretty much on a whim. Ui is on board with it from the beginning, but Hayato is understandably reluctant to accept the fact that he suddenly has a wife... [[PerfectlyArrangedMarriage However, it quickly becomes clear that the two are perfect for each other, and Hayato falls in love with Ui before he even notices.]]

* In the Zou arc of ''Manga/OnePiece'', an arranged marriage is revealed to be set up between [[spoiler:Sanji]], the third son of the Vinsmoke Family and Pudding, the 35th daughter of the Charlotte Family. The reason for this is because Big Mom wants to have the power of Germa 66 which is led by the Vinsmoke Family. Vinsmoke Judge doesn't want to give any of his precious children to her, but since defying Big Mom is way too risky, he wants to give her [[TheUnfavourite the son he never saw as a son]].
** In the Dressrosa arc, Don Chin Jao arranged a marriage with his son Sai and the daughter of the Nihosui Army, thus leading Chin Jao to attack Sai when he thinks that his son decided to marry Baby 5. When Sai retaliates, bending his father's Drill Dragon Nail head in the process, Chin Jao, [[SoProudOfYou proud of his son]], names him Don and cancels his arranged marriage.

* In Masaki Kobayashi's ''SamuraiRebellion'', the son of a prominent samurai is ordered by his daimyo to marry a concubine who has fallen from favor. At first, he objects, but as in some of the other examples on this page, the couple eventually find happiness. Later, the daimyo's primary heir dies and he demands the concubine back. The samurai (played by Creator/ToshiroMifune) refuses, as he wants his son to have the happiness he was denied in his own loveless Arranged Marriage. This ends [[DownerEnding about as well as you'd expect]].

* This forms the basis of the second arc of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD''. StarterVillain Raiser Phenex has a marriage arranged with the unwilling Rias Gremory, using the excuse of depleted number of pure-blooded Devils to make her family (who are normally entirely supportive of Rias' independence) agree. It's obvious to everyone he's just playing the system and wants a MsFanservice like Rias to himself. [[spoiler:It ends with Issei crashing the engagement party and loudly declaring before the assembled upper escelons of hell that [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Rias's virginity belongs to him]], followed by issuing an EngagementChallenge that gives Issei his first chance to shine as the {{Badass}} he is.]]

* One ''Captain Marvel'' issue (Carol Danvers, the former ''ComicBook/MsMarvel'') involved an alien society where women had the right to marry whomever they pleased, but men could be married off at will by their families, whether they liked it or not. A friend of Carol's had inadvertently gotten engaged to a prince, and while she had the ability to back out, the prince told Carol that he couldn't ascend the throne without getting married, and that making men able to marry freely would be one of his first official acts as a ruler. He asks ''her'' to marry him, but she [[ComicBook/WarMachine already has a boyfriend]], so she refuses. Ironically, she ends up essentially fighting a duel against another woman for his hand (she enters the duel to protect her friend). She wins, [[{{Badass}} of course]], and now that she is essentially engaged to the prince, she uses her new authority to give him the right to marry whoever he wants, and recommends that all men be allowed to do the same.

In some cases of this, the problem isn't so much that Alice dreads the idea of marrying Bob, but that she actually loves Charlie, someone her parents believe to be unworthy of her. The character of the suitor is less likely to be important in those cases, but he (or she, as the case may be) generally won't look kindly on the outsider's interference.



* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', [[spoiler: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.]].]]

** Later books show that Asuna's family have been setting up ''omiai'' between her and some other wealthy suitors, but Asuna makes it pretty clear she has zero intention of going along with this. When her mother tries to force the issue and says that Asuna should respect their choices, Asuna reminds her of the fact that she chose Sugou as well, and look how well ''that'' went.

* In ''Fanfic/OneYear'', Hitomi, one of [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Yu's]] [[OriginalCharacter old friends]], is engaged to a somewhat older man, and will marry after she graduates from high school. Hitomi's fairly conflicted about this, since she knows that since [[BookDumb her grades are mediocre at best]], her job prospects aren't much better, but she also knows that she'll have little freedom and will most likely be strongly discouraged from seeing her friends again. As for the man himself, Hitomi knows that he [[NiceGuy is a kind person at heart]], but also that he's subservient to his family like she is to hers, and as such, does not love or fully trust him.
