* Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar series: The reasons and political maneuvering behind the various forms of ArrangedMarriage among the nobility are a theme of ''Closer to Home''. In an attempt to resolve a [[FeudingFamilies feud between two noble houses]], the Prince commands that House Raeylen marry their only son to House Chendlar's oldest daughter. This backfires badly when it turns out Chendlar's ''youngest'' daughter has fallen hard for the son, and he manipulates her in a scheme to kill off both families and inherit their lands.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2: Saisei-hen'', [[Anime/CodeGeass Diethard]] attempts to marry off Tianzi again like in the series, except this time, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2s_EeYBqJI EVERY SINGLE ZEXIS woman gets on his case about it]]. His expression is just awesome. Oh and one guy gets in on it too.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' fanfic series ''[[http://higherarrowsfic.livejournal.com/24262.html Five Loaves of Bread]]''[[note]]Link requires joining the comm to read.[[/note]] includes this. The Capitol arranges everything about its subjects' laws -- where they live, where they work, and if and who they marry. It's technically possible to indicate a preference either way, but the the government is entirely free to ignore it when it suits them.

* In DavidWeber's ''Literature/TheWarGods'' series, the King of the Sothoii has the power to force marriages in cases of nobles who don't have a male heir. It's seen as a last resort, admittedly hard on only-daughters, but worth it in order to insure that the Kingdom isn't destabilized by having important lands and titles fall into dispute.

* Most of the plot of ''Manga/TwinStarExorcists'' revolves around the ArrangedMarriage between Rokuro and Benio. The reason is that an oracle predicted their child would be The Miko, [[SecondComing the reincarnation of Abe No Seimei that would wipe out the impurities once and for all]]. [[spoiler: The fact that all attempts during the previous thousand years ended up [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy killed by said Impurities before they could have children]] shows pretty well that whoever decided it, they didn't really care for their safety.]]

* In ''TabletopGame/ArsMagica'', heiresses whose fathers die become wards of their father's lord, and they (and more importantly their lands) will be married off to the lord's benefit. It's technically illegal to simply sell her for money, but in practice, this is often laughed at.

* ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'' has a friendship variant. Flashbacks show that after [[spoiler:Togo�s]] first tour of duty as a [[MagicalGirlWarrior Hero]] ended and she was released from the hospital, the Taisha deliberately arranged to have her family move next door to [[spoiler:Yuna�s]] family, because they knew [[spoiler:Yuna]] had extremely high potential as another Hero and wanted the two girls to become friends.
