* Arguably, Hermia's situation in ''AMidsummerNightsDream''. The original arrangement with Demitrius doesn't qualify, since that was arranged by her father and Theseus was just enforcing the existing law allowing an ArrangedMarriage. However, once Theseus expanded his ruling to allow Hermia the option of joining a convent instead, it could be considered this trope.

Maybe the government needs you to marry someone in order to secure an important alliance. Maybe you're the next link in the super-solider breeding program. Whatever the reason, the powers that be have declared that this marriage has to happen.

* Most of the plot of ''Manga/SouseiNoOnmyouji'' 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.]]

* ''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.

-->And if a man dying by some unexpected fate leaves daughters behind him, let him pardon the legislator if he gives them in marriage, he have a regard only to two out of three conditions - nearness of kin and the preservation of the lot, and omits the third condition, which a father would naturally consider, for he would choose out of all the citizens a son for himself, and a husband for his daughter, with a view to his character and disposition - the father, say, shall forgive the legislator if he disregards this, which to him is an impossible consideration.

* 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.

A subtrope of ArrangedMarriage. Note that whether or not an arranged marriage qualifies for this subtrope depends on who is arranging the marriage and the relationship between the arranger and the people getting married. The person arranging the marriage needs to be an impersonal force, not a close relative. If the King is ordering the marriage of two of his subjects, that may be this trope; if he's ordering the marriage of his daughter the Princess, it isn't. Also note that this can overlap with PerfectlyArrangedMarriage: sometimes, the bureaucracy's computer is pretty good at pairing compatible people. And if not, there's always plain luck.

luck. Often a part of AltarDiplomacy, where the match is made for political reasons.

* In the ''Franchise/StarTrekNovelverse'', in order to stave off the extinction of the Andorian species the Andorian Empire resorts to arranging bondgroups based on genetic analysis to maximize fertility.[[labelnote:longer explanation]]On top of their complex [[BizarreAlienSexes quadrisexual reproduction]] which already resulted in a low birthrate, they suffered genomic damage in the ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' timeframe. And all this was ''before'' the [[Literature/StarTrekDestiny Borg invaded and killed a huge chunk of the remaining population]]. (This plotline was apparently meant to explain why Andorians were barely ever mentioned in the 24th century shows.)[[/labelnote]] Some of the ''Literature/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineRelaunch'' books deal with an Andorian member of Deep Space 9's crew resisting calls by his bondgroup, whom he hates, to return home to help them conceive. [[spoiler:Andoria eventually secedes from the Federation for a brief period to get out from under the Federation's NoTranshumanismAllowed laws so they can use genetic engineering to permanently fix the problem.]]

* In the ''Film/PsychoPass'' movie, Akane discovers her old friend Kaori is getting married to a man that the Sibyl System has decided is a good match for her because its database indicates they have a high "Romantic Compatibility" score. And it is correct: she falls for him after their first few meetings.

* The below mentioned ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2: Saisei-hen'' case comes from an actual scene in CodeGeass, where after rescuing Empress Tianzi from an unwanted ArrangedMarriage ''and'' preventing a political alliance between Britannians and Chinese that would've ruined Lelouch/Zero's plans, Diethard comes with the same idea but with Tianzi and a high-ranked Black Knight. And gets hilariously shot down by ''every'' woman in the Black Knights group: HotBlooded Kallen, SugarandIceGirl C.C, TheSmartGirl Rakshata...
