*** Also in Fates' GoldenPath, Azama promises to protect Effie while at the same time giving her a LoveConfession:
-->'''Azama:''' [[LampshadeHanging I want to...protect you.]]
-->'''Effie:''' What do you mean? [[WhiteMage You]] protect me all the time...[[AfterActionPatchUp by tending to my wounds.]]
-->'''Azama:''' I want to protect you BEFORE you get injured. [[GrowOldWithMe Because I want to live a long and happy life...with you by my side.]]
-->'''Effie:''' Are you saying what I think you're saying?
-->'''Azama:''' Yes. At first, [[ChronicHeroSyndrome I was annoyed with your selflessness.]] [[MartyrWithoutACause It seemed impractical.]] But as I've come to admit to myself, it has a certain charm. [[PluckyGirl I also admire your fearlessness in the face of unbelievable danger.]]
-->'''Effie:''' Azama...
-->'''Azama:''' Please, let me finish. [[LoveConfession I've never said this before—to anyone! I...I love you.]]

* ''Literature/MemorySorrowAndThorn'': Simon has a very difficult time spitting out his affection for RebelliousPrincess Miriamele, despite the fact that he has a crush on her. Part of it is that he feels that she's so far above him socially that his desires will remain unrequited, although he fantasizes about rising to her station or her falling to his. Of course, they keep getting thrown together in perilous circumstances, and after he's knighted, he resolves to become her champion and protector as a way of dealing with the situation. In the end he discovers that it wasn't their stations keeping them apart at all, but Miriamele's self-doubts and fears of being forced to assume the throne and make a political marriage. And of course he [[MosesInTheBullrushes turns out to be the rightful king anyway]], so he solves the problem of her entering into a loveless marriage by marrying her.

* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' probably fits best under this, and is a very genderqueer example, what with Utena Tenjou deliberately taking on the persona of a Fairytale Prince. She fights solely to protect the Rose Bride, Anthy Himemiya... but at the end, it turns out [[spoiler:Anthy was in on the whole thing, and was in fact following Akio's will, from being involved in his manipulations behind the scenes to doing everything he told her to . . . EVERYTHING.]] It's really, REALLY not helped by Utena [[spoiler: realising that she had been taking the persona of a prince ''less'' to help Anthy and ''much more'' [[WhiteKnight to feed her own ego]], not taking Anthy's thoughts and beliefs in consideration.]] After this, [[spoiler: Utena is severely disillusioned, becoming a KnightInSourArmor, but comes to forgive Anthy after realizing just how much [[FateWorseThanDeath torment she's been in]] for hundreds and thousands of years, and resolves to ''truly'' save her from more suffering and give her a second chance in life.]]

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', Agatha, Gil and Tarvek have all declared their intentions to protect one another (or rather, [[LoveTriangle Gil and Tarvek want to protect Agatha, and she wants to protect them]]). Considering they're all [[MadScientist Mad Scientists]] and the rulers of most of a continent, none of it is really necessary.
** Agatha orders both Gil and Tarvek to leave [[MalevolentArchitecture Castle Heterodyne]] at various points within the Castle arc, even though they're both completely capable of looking after themselves.
** Tarvek's stated aim of protecting Agatha from Gil's advances, after Gil's friends decide to announce to the whole town that he's going to marry her, backfires more than a little.
--> '''Tarvek:''' Agatha - just say the word - and I'll do everything in my power to sort this fellow out for you.\\
'''Agatha:''' I appreciate that. I really do. Because by the time '''''I''''' get through with him, I expect there'll be '''''a lot of pieces to sort!'''''

* This turns out to be a driving reason behind [[spoiler: Inspector Ninzaburou Shiratori]]'s actions in ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. [[spoiler: He wouldn't have become a policeman if not for the encouragement of a girl whom he met 20 years ago, and he's always been grateful to her to the point of believing [[BecauseDestinySaysSo she's the woman of his life]]. He at first goes after Miwako Sato because he believes she's that girl, and few after he ''actually'' finds out that she grew into Sato's IdenticalStranger Sumiko Kobayashi, he promises to protect Sumiko with his life.]]

** Kanae Katagiri vowed to protect the more powerful [[HeroicNeutral Ryuuken]] no matter what the cost, and that no matter what happened she would never, ever leave his side. [[spoiler:She was later murdered by TheEmperor; Souken implies Ryuuken's made a similar declaration to ensure his and Kanae's badass son, Uryuu, does not share his mother's fate.]]

* Hauyuki Arita, main character of LightNovel/{{AccelWorld}}, made a vow to support and protect his leader Kuroyukihime in the Brain Burst game. This despite Black Lotus, one of the top seven players in the game, being leagues above Silver Crow. It's actually part of Haru's character development that he's trying to make himself worthy of being her knight.
