* ''FanFic/MyMirrorSwordAndShield'':
** Invoked by Euphemia, who recommends to Lelouch that he finds a good-looking guard for himself. Euphemia herself has a romantic relationship with her personal guard, Knight of Five Albert Raleigh.
** Suzaku develops feelings for Lelouch, whom he serves as a personal bodyguard. Which heavily complicates things for Suzaku, as he's a [[PeggySue Time Traveler]] trying to preserve history. Which he has to do by making sure that Lelouch dies. It doesn't help that Lelouch returns his feelings and promotes him to make him a socially acceptable suitor.

* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'':
** [[{{Yakuza}} Ginji Matsuzaki]]'s loyalties are all for [[YakuzaPrincess Yukio Washimine]], and it's almost a sure thing that they're romantically-inspired. [[spoiler: It ends tragically, however: with the Washimine clan decimated, Ginji slain by Revy, and Yukio commiting ''[[{{seppuku}} jigai]]'' with his katana right after his death.]]
** By the time the ''Baile de la Muerte'' arc finishes, [[spoiler: Garcia has developed a HUGE one on his much older NinjaMaid Roberta. In the manga, he even kisses her.]]

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'': A foregone conclusion with Athrun and Cagalli in the first part as they were both interested in each other well before he became her bodyguard. Many cute moments ensue. He became her bodyguard ''because'' of the fact that they were interested in one another.

Many cute moments ensue. He became her bodyguard ''because'' of the fact that they were interested in one another. [[spoiler: However, they break-up midway through the series since Cagalli's ultimate priority is rebuilding the kingdom of Orb ''and'' help stop the war. Not every hope is lost, however, since both are more or less single at the GrandFinale (though Athrun has Meyrin, who Cagalli personally asked to keep an eye on him, as another possible suitor).]]



** [[GenderInvertedTrope Genders are inverted]] where the female Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye acts as aide/right-hand woman/bodyguard to male Colonel Roy Mustang. It becomes progressively clearer throughout the manga and ''Brotherhood'' anime that their feelings for each other run much deeper than allowable by the military's anti-fraternization law (a fact that the bad guys gleefully exploit twice); it's eventually revealed that their relationship goes back to a long time before either of them joined the military. It's not an exaggeration to say that the most dangerous place in Amestris is between the two of them.

It's not an exaggeration to say that the most dangerous place in Amestris is between the two of them. [[spoiler: Apparently, WordOfGod states that they have "marriage-worthy" mutual feelings but, as said above, the anti-fraternization rules will technically keep them apart for some time.]]



** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': In this game [[PlayerCharacter the Avatar]] is a Prince or Princess so, depending on their gender, the {{battle butler}} Jakob and/or the {{ninja}} Suzukaze (for a Female Avatar) or the {{ninja maid}}s Felicia and Flora (for a Male Avatar) can potentially develop this towards them.
*** In a similar vein Takumi's retainer Oboro already has a crush on him before their supports even begin, and unlike the above Chrom and Cordelia it's fully possible to reach S-Rank in their support chain.

* In ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', while there isn't anything romantic going on ''yet'' between John and Cameron, a lot of John's growing attachment and protectiveness of her is stemming from her own protectiveness of him. Then there's the second season finale, in which [[spoiler:John, against the advice of both his mother and Agent Ellison, travels into the future to retrieve Cameron's chip]]. Cue Fangirl {{Squee}}.

* Inverted in season 5 of ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]'', with First Lady Martha Logan, fully disgusted with her husband's actions, falling for Secret Service agent Aaron Pierce. [[spoiler:Season 6 finds the Logans separated (divorced?) and Pierce retired from the Secret Service and romantically involved with Martha.]]

** A classic case with Lelouch's half-sister [[RebelliousPrincess Princess Euphemia Ii Britannia]] and her [[KnightinShiningArmor Knight Suzaku Kururugi.]] At their first meeting, she ''pretended'' to be in danger so they could have a RescueRomance. She's more GenreSavvy than she looks. Later she names her offficial knight because she has a crush on him.

* One episode of ''Series/{{Angel}}'' depicts Wesley getting involved with a girl he's been hired to protect ("Guise Will Be Guise"). The guy who hired him was apparently GenreSavvy to this trope, because Wesley was impersonating Angel, who was wanted specifically because he [[CelibateHero can't have sex]]. [[spoiler: He needed her for a VirginSacrifice - as it turned out, he should have started paying attention to this possibility a lot earlier]]

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Aerith hires Cloud. She repays him with a date. [[spoiler: Though in this case it's invoked: Aerith cares for Cloud a lot but the one she's in romantic love with is Cloud's dead friend Zack, and they're TogetherInDeath in ''Advent Children''. Cloud was something of a ReplacementGoldfish because he ''greatly'' resembled Zack, and ''Crisis Core'' explains the veyr complicated reasons why. Cloud is all but stated to end up with his VictoriousChildhoodFriend Tifa.]]

** [[HoYay current bodyguard Brock Samson and Dr. Venture's relationship]] has these vibes. It's referenced in the pilot episode, "The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay," when Pete White argues to Billy Quizboy that "you can't tell me there's nothing going on there." Also played with in the season 1 finale, "Return to Spider-Skull Island;" when Brock [[spoiler: isn't allowed to go with Dr. Venture to the operation room and argues, the doctor]] assumes they're "partners."

* Slight twist in FanFic/WhatHathJoinedTogether where [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Flash Sentry]] gained an enormous crush on Princess Twilight Sparkle when he ranked as a regular Royal Guard, but then found himself assigned as her PraetorianGuard for a foreign visit. Starting a relationship would be huge challenge both due to [[LoveTriangle Flash's superior having his eyes set on Twilight]] and the fact that [[FantasticCasteSystem Twilight ranks a few social classes above him]].

* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'':
** Bold Rush joined the Royal Guard solely because he lusts after Princess Luna and wants to sleep with her. However, he's rude, obnoxious, a fool, and a CasanovaWannabe who constantly harasses the female guards. Everyone agrees his chances of sharing Luna's bed are zero.
** Blade Dancer is assigned to guard Xenilla, [[BodyguardingABadass even though he doesn't need a guard]], and the two slowly start coming together.
** In the Xilian Empire, Controller 011 eventually married her protector Praetorian Guard 094. [[spoiler:It ended when she was murdered by Grand King Ghidorah. Over 300 years later, 094 is now Monster X, and he and Aria Blaze start developing feelings for each other while he's protecting her and the other Sirens from Enjin.]]



* Technically Kaz's and Noni's relationship in Film/BeyondTheLights begins as this as he was assigned as her bodyguard on the night they meet. However, he was only filling in for another cop and his main job is as an officer of the LAPD.
