* An episode of ''Series/SpecialUnit2'' deals with a nest of [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Links]] that all look like attractive women, except they appear to be human/spider hybrids. Typical of the trope, they lure men to their den, then eat them. Nick ends up trying to protect a woman the black widow Links are after and falls for her. [[spoiler:Both he and Kate quickly figure out that she's also a Link of that kind, just from another city, trying to muscle in on the local den's territory]].

* An episode of ''Series/{{Bull}}'' starts with a GoldDigger first demanding that her (much older and wealthier) husband renegotiate her contract/prenup, only for him to point out how stupid that would be from a business standpoint. She then grabs a knife and stabs herself several times (it's later revealed that she used to major in anatomy, so she knows where to stab so it looks serious but ultimately not fatal), before grabbing her husband's gun and shooting him "in self-defense". It takes Bull one conversation with the "poor victim" to realize she's lying. Apparently, her prenup doubles her payout every year she stays with her husband and performs certain obligations (including those of sexual nature), which would already equal $16 million. However, since her husband's net work is around ''$6 billion'', $16 million seemed like a pittance (she also refused the company's lawyers' attempts to buy her out for half a billion).

** Played straight later on when she ends up dating one of Roger's personas and "kills" him for the insurance money.

* Poison Ivy takes this UpToEleven in an epsidoe of ''''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. She figures, why seduce one billionaire herself when she can create a small squad of female plant clones, have them seduce ''dozens'' of rich bachelors at once, then have said clones lead them to their doom upon a yacht that she sinks? Through her clones, she'd inherit ''mulitiple'' fortunes. Her only flaw here - Bruce Wayne is one of her targets.

* Abigail Mathers in ''VideoGame/{{GrandTheftAutoV}}''. She seduces a rich TV producer away from his family and tampers with the airlock in a submarine he was testing in order to kill him for the insurance money. She then cons Michael into salvaging what's left of the submarine to prove his death to the insurance company and flees to the airport to skip town unless killed by the player.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' the Belchers help Teddy work on a woman's beach house and Linda comes to the conclusion that she killed her rich husband after seducing him away from his first wife by loosening the railings on his widow's walk. The ending implies that she actually did do it as she admits that she didn't like her husband and Bob notices an old toolbox buried after she claimed she didn't own any tools (but was too high on painkillers to draw the proper conclusion).

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', your female character can learn an ability by this name, which allows you to charm and manipulate members of the opposite sex with ease. Also, this perk grants a minor combat damage increase against male characters. ''[[TheBluebeard Lady Killer]]'' is essentially the inverse perk for men.
