* ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' parodies the genre in a pre-BossBattle cutscene. When the boss, a geeky chameleon named Francis, meets Princess Peach, the game turns into a dating sim with Francis playing it and the player providing her responses. Princess Peach quickly becomes annoyed at the concept, and sics Boomer on the [=Nerr2Babe=] Interface - which has the side effect of nuking Francis' video card. Cue the boss battle, folks.
** To both reiterate and answer the ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' quote, Peach indeed had a bomb available.

** The True Pacifist route includes a similar comedic "date" with Alphys at the local garbage dump. Being a bit GenreSavvy, she brings gifts intended to increase your RelationshipMeter with her, but they're all obviously intended for a different person, namely Undyne, who [[LoveLetterLunacy actually wrote the love letter Alphys mistakes you as the author of]]. The date turns into more of a pep talk session that's then unceremoniously interrupted by Undyne.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has an optional sidequest where you date the skeleton Papyrus (if you flirted with him during your battle with him). As Papyrus's never dated before, he consults a guidebook on what to do and ends up believing that you're ''madly'' in love with him even if you spend the entire date insulting him. Not only that, but his LargeHam personality leads to him treating the date as more like a competition to see who has the most "Dating Power". And then, at the end of the date, he admits that he doesn't like you in that way and would prefer to just be friends. You can also go on a similar comedic "date" with Alphys, but it happens only because she mistakes you as the sender of a love letter that Undyne actually wrote and the date turns into more of a pep talk session that's then unceremoniously interrupted by Undyne.

* ''Anime/ExcelSaga'', naturally, did an episode parodying these. In a RunningGag, the male characters suddenly find themselves in a game with several options, the last generally being "Put It In."
** "Who puts a [[Franchise/TokimekiMemorial BOMB in a DATING GAME]]?!!"
*** [[VideoGame/SuperPaperMario NOOOOOOOOOO! MY GRAPHICS CAAAAAAARD!]]
** Il Palazzo, playing the game, gets a bad ending by killing the PatientChildhoodLoveInterest who wakes him up in the game, before even leaving for school.

* ''VideoGame/LaMulana'', upon acquiring certain {{MSX}} [=ROMs=], lets you play what at first appears to be an MSX knockoff of ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial'', and the heroine, Shiori, is talking about how she'd like to take her friendship with Taihei (your character) to the next level until [[spoiler:she comments that she had a toothache since this morning. Taihei then discovers a piece of fake skin on the ground, and Shiori then [[ReplicantSnatching reveals herself to be a]] VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}. After satyrical dialogue on women in dating sims, you're thrown into a battle against Shiori while being careful not to shoot the "game mascot", Gyonin (A.K.A. Metal Fish [=MSX3=] Turbo R Plus)]]. After the whole ordeal is over, another girl named Nijino runs up... [[spoiler:only to reveal herself as a Snatcher as well.]] And the whole thing starts all '''Syntax error in 1220'''
