* When Golden Eyes, the heroine of the UsefulNotes/WorldWarI serial ''ComicBook/GoldenEyesAndHerHeroBill'', is captured by the nefarious German officer Hugo Von Schwatzenburg he tries to invoke this by plying her with looted French gowns, jewelry, and champagne. He's convinced that the finery will make her fall madly in love with him and make her forget she's an unregistered prisoner of war completely at his mercy.
--> "Captain Hugo had unearthed a bit of his loot that he had dreamed of getting back to Germany if the war was kind. The big chest gave up its treasure of silk and lace, the dainty cob webs that had clothed a French girl in the long-ago peace times, her jewels. her fans and pretty trinkets, the little high-stilted slippers of this age, the gossamer stockings that matched, all eagerly offered to bribe this golden-girl Mars had dropped into the monotony of trench and man life."

The stereotype of woman really liking expensive luxuries, to the point where supposedly they can forget any problems, or do any favors, as long as they get some pretty things to admire. Can be true for some, but ''not all''.

* Played with in ''{{Frasier}}'', Niles frequently bribes his wife Maris when they fight, and it works. (At one point they're in a terrible argument and he ends it by buying her a Mercedes). However, it is not a one-way relationship, as both Niles (and Frasier) are [[GenderInvertedTrope male versions]] of this, often distracted from whatever new drama has come into their lives by their brother's new tie or suit. At one point, Frasier thinks he has a secret admirer sending him gifts and is utterly flattered by the expensive, classy clothing and jewelry he's received, only to find [[spoiler: the gifts were from Maris, intended for Niles in an effort to win him back.]] It's made clear that in the past, the gifts would have worked, but that he can no longer ignore the problems in the relationship. It's pointedly averted when Niles almost gives in to Maris' money, when he is forced to move to a horrible apartment complex after she closes all his credit cards and bank account, which were co-owned. He actually picks up the phone to call her and beg for her to take him back, but his father and brother point out that in spite of it all, he's won his freedom from a horrible marriage. After a moment of thought he puts the phone down and says, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming "Well, it's worth that."]]
