* ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'': Laura is generally referred to as "not so much defrosted as doused in gasoline and lit on fire in the space of a single episode." She is introduced as a TykeBomb who hero-worships Ichika's older sister Chifuyu, and hates Ichika for "[[LoveIsAWeakness weakening" Chifuyu, to the point that she slaps him in the face the moment she meets him. She refuses to associate with anyone else at the school, spending all her time training. When she faces Ichika in the tournament, she does everything in her power to kill him, and when that fails she accidentally activates her [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Valkyrie Trace]] (a device she didn't know she had, powered by suppressed emotions). Ichika saves her, and when she wakes up in the hospital, Chifuyu explains that her love for her brother was the reason she drove herself so hard and became someone Laura would admire. The next day, Laura saves Ichika from [[ClingyJealousGirl Rin's rampage]], [[ForcefulKiss kisses him in front of the entire class]], and [[WackyMarriageProposal declares him to be her wife]]. She spends the rest of the series blushing and trying to spend time with him.

* At the end of Creator/RobertEHoward's "Literature/TheDevilInIron", Literature/ConanTheBarbarian is rather crestfallen to find that Octavia tried to allure him because she was forced; a kiss later, she is somewhat reconciled, and he offers to burn down the city where she was MadeASlave for her.

* TylerPerry makes use of this trope a lot. The heroines of ''Diary of a Mad Black Woman'' and ''Madea's Family Reunion'', for example, have [[BrokenBird physical and sexual abuse]] in their backgrounds, respectively, and both require a tremendous amount of care and patience from their eventual love interests before they finally thaw.

->'''Liara:''' She was so cold when I first met her, completely focused on her duty.\\
'''Shepard:''' I don't know that she's lightened up that much.\\
'''Liara:''' She has. Believe me, you have no idea how much you've changed her.

* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', Shinji tried very hard to reconnect with Asuka and reach out to her after the war. Eventually she warmed up to him and they got together.

* Subverted in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''. A large part of episode 3 of the visual novel focuses on [[spoiler:Beatrice realizing how cruelly she has been abusing her powers until that point. She reforms, eventually even helping the Ushiromiya side of the game board, and ends up denying witches to have Battler win the game, causing her own demise. At the very end of episode 3, all of this is revealed to only be an act to get Battler to voluntarily recognize the existence of witches, and Battler almost signs a contract to do so until he is interrupted by the unexpected visitor Ange, who explains to him that he has been tricked.]]

''She'' is ''the'' IceQueen (and sometimes AnIcePerson): cool, reserved, and giving nothing away. She may want love as ardently as anyone, but she masks her soft heart behind a wall of ice. It is up to the hero to soften her cold demeanor and win her love. (Substitute "Ice King" if more applicable.)

"Cold demeanor" can mean anything from RichBitch, to haughty and proud, to EmotionlessGirl, to being a {{Jerkass}}. Occasionally, she has -- legitimately or not -- misunderstood the hero. Furthermore, she will work with the hero and be professional enough for the task, [[TeethClenchedTeamwork if through some gritted teeth]]. Over the story, the hero successfully melts the IceQueen's cold heart, giving her CharacterDevelopment into a nicer character. Typically, the payoff comes WhenSheSmiles and shows he's gotten through to her.

Sometimes the defroster is a faker, who now breaks the former IceQueen's heart, sending her back into her shell. But then sometimes the faker ends up subjected to BecomingTheMask, and decides he or she likes the IceQueen (or King) after all.

Very common in movies. Reversal of gender roles in this trope is common; see AllGirlsWantBadBoys and [[Quotes/AllGirlsWantBadBoys Cleolinda Jones' theory]] about the ultimate female fantasy.
