** Atalanta, who would only marry a man who could defeat her in a foot race. The losers were executed. Eventually, Aphrodite got sick of Atalanta's attitude and gave the next competitor three golden apples with which to cheat. Every time Atalanta got ahead, he threw one out in front of her and broke for the lead while she was distracted, giving him the win.

** Atalanta, who would only marry a man who could defeat her in a foot race. The losers were executed. (In more extreme versions, the idea was to ''outrun'' her in said race, as she'd stab them from behind with a dagger if they couldn't.) Eventually, Aphrodite got sick of Atalanta's attitude and gave the next competitor three golden apples with which to cheat. Every time Atalanta got ahead, he threw one out in front of her and broke for the lead while she was distracted, giving him the win.

* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'': Jutta, a swordmaiden from Skellige islands, vowed to bed, marry and have children with the man that bests her in combat. Although Geralt says he can't fulfill the last two bits (due to [[spoiler:a spell cast by Yennefer]] and being infertile, respectively) she doesn't seem to mind, [[FrequentlyBrokenUnbreakableVow conveniently]].

** In a ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' story where ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} [[WolverinePublicity became lost in time and wound up in Hyboria]] at the same time this story took place, Wolverine was able to beat Sonja in battle and went on to become King of Aquilonia instead of Conan, with Sonja as his queen. [[note]] Wolverine's not thrilled with the initial situation. After he beats Sonja, she gives up and waits to be raped. Wolverine walks away, telling her "Sorry, darlin', that ain't my style." She's both perplexed and [[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe slightly insulted]] so she follows him. (Apparently, she had never considered the possibility that her eventual defeat would come at the hands of someone who wasn't interested.) It's only after their next meeting that he warms up to her. (''ComicBook/WhatIf'' take place in AlternateReality settings, and as such, the characters and situations in these settings are dfferent than those in the mainstream Marvel Universe. The "real" Red Sonja may not have reacted this way.) [[/note]]

** Creator/FrankMiller's ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain'' had Wonder Woman imply that she hooked up with Superman, [[UnfortunateImplications after he threw her on the ground and made her his own]]. Miller takes it up a notch in ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'' with Superman knocking Wonder Woman onto the ground, Wonder Woman calling him a bastard, and then the two start making out.

* In ''WayOfTheSamurai4'' the last step of of Nightcrawling mini-game involves either throwing the woman you want on a bed or hitting them until their clothes come off. Additionally some characters like Sensei or Melinda require you to defeat them in sword fight before they will even give you a chance.

** Milia in is a borderline case. She fell in love with Max after he beat her, but there was never an explicit "rule" about it. (There was to be a female pilot in the never-produced ''Anime/{{Robotech}} II: The Sentinels'' who idolized Miriya and in an in-universe version of MisaimedFandom vowed only to marry a man who beat her.)
** ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' : The series strongly hints that Max and Milia grew apart because they couldn't mentally deal with normal married life, not for lack of love. Max and Milia are only good at fighting and sex (the pair had seven children together; the second almost killed Milia during childbirth). Living together in harmony outside of those two activities is a major challenge for them.

* {{Subverted}} in ''Manga/CityHunter'': Saeko Nogami (who, to be fair, [[AllAmazonsWantHercules appear to be interested only in stronger men]], given that Ryo and the late Makimura, her two love interests, are stronger than her), claims she vowed to marry only a man stronger than herself... But it's apparently an excuse to get away from her father's attempts at getting her in an ArrangedMarriage, and "tests" the applicants [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown until they need hospitalization]].

* A less extreme version of this trope can be found in ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'', where Iwase, the smartest girl in school, believes that she and Takagi are now a couple when he gets better grades than her. Too bad he thinks she was just making a friendly competition out of it. As of recent chapters [[spoiler:she's likely going to enter the field of manga in order to compete with him]].
