* In ''Anime/DogDays'', BadassPrincess Leonmitchelli of the Galette Dominion accepts marriage proposals once a year, only giving serious consideration to men who can beat her in a one-on-one fight. Since Leo has proven to be pretty much unstoppable in past seasons, this goes about as well as you'd expect.

** 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 AlternateTimeline 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]]

* The wildling women of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' won't accept husbands who aren't tough enough to kidnap them. When [[HeroicBastard Jon Snow]] captures wildling Ygritte alive and then refuses to execute her, she assumes that this is his intention and is more than willing, and is [[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe very confused]] when he refuses to go through with the bedding part even after she's dropped what seem to her to be very unsubtle hints.

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', Nan has self-imposed this on herself, under the "[[WomenPreferStrongMen can't marry anyone weak]]" logic.

To be fair to both sides, [[KidHero both of them are twelve]].

* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' [[ActionGirl Ku Fei]] has imposed this policy on herself. She doesn't require that the combat actually take place; she can tell that [[MagicKnight Negi]] could defeat her in an match and that being able to defeat her is a necessary but not sufficient criteria. She's not romantically interested in Negi. [[WifeHusbandry Yet.]] [[spoiler: He beat her at arm wrestling (to minimize damage) and she joked that now they had to get married... and then Chamo started wondering why Negi's [[KidFromTheFuture great-something-granddaughter looked so Chinese]].]] Awkward timing there, huh?

** 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.
