* In the ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode where Bizarro first appears, he asks Lois out before his body starts to suffer from clone degeneration (and thus still resembles Superman). When his body and mental capacities start badly degenerating, he remembers asking her out, so he decides to simply grab her, then break into a restaurant to keep the date. This technically makes it the type 1 example, as he honestly believes he's holding up a promise, even though Lois likely objects.

** She was also kidnapped and "invited" for dinner by Toyman, although this was neither Type 1 nor 2; her written hypothesis of his motivations in the ''Daily Planet'' was completely wrong, and he wanted to explain his ''actual'' motivations, possibly so she could print them later.

* In ''Literature/TheMahabharata'', the naga princess Ulupi kidnaps Arjuna and drags him to her den at the bottom of the river, where she then propositions him. Even though she's a total stranger, Arjuna finds this sexy for some reason and acquiesces.

* ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'' clarifies that [[spoiler:Akane]]'s actions in the first game zigzagged this trope. She didn't kidnap Junpei for the ''express purpose'' of being with him, but she wanted to...capitalize...on the spare time they had while achieving her main goal. Junpei is upset with her because of this- especially given that she lied about not being his kidnapper- but they eventually reconcile [[spoiler:and get married]].

** One episode focuses on a killer who treats his victims to a romantic evening complete with rose petals, though they're not tied down. He means no harm until they turn him down once they reach the bathtub part of the date. The rest fits to a T though.

* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'': Starbuck is held captive by Leobin during New Caprica's occupation. It's a nice house and all, and she does kill her captor, but he's a Cylon and just comes back the next day (or earlier), but it doesn't really help her escape since its still essentially a military prison on the other side of the door. He eventually convinces her to stop even violently murdering him by bringing in a child that she can't risk hurting or getting hurt in further violence.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Killer Moth threatens the city with destruction unless Robin takes Killer Moth's BrattyTeenageDaughter, Kitten, to the prom. Robin complies, much to his chagrin. (In truth, Kitten is doing this [[OperationJealousy to make her true boyfriend, Fang, jealous]]; while it partially works - he comes crawling back to her apologizing for whatever fight they had - both of them and her dad ''still'' wind up in jail.)
