* In ''WarhammerFantasy'', the ''ius primae noctis'' is in effect in some Bretonnian duchies, although it is considered a rather dated practice even there, with few lords choosing to exercise it even if it were still law in their demesne. It's rather touchingly subverted, however, in the case of Lord Laurent of the Duchy of Artois, who requires any newlyweds in his dutchy to ''both'' spend their wedding night in his bedchamber. Lord Laurent sleeps outside the door to ensure they aren't disturbed, much to his subjects' surprise.

* In DasFinstereTal Brenner, the villages patriach, practices a form of this. But instead of forcing them to spent one night with him, they must stay until they are pregnant. So every first born is actually his child. The priest justifies this, by claiming that Marias first child wasn't Josephs, but gods.

* Leo Frankowski's Conrad Stargard series, the time traveling protagonist is shocked by this practice, but quickly overcomes his objections. [[SarcasmMode And why shouldn't he?]]: the local lord is a nice chap who ensures all the peasant girls are married off when they become pregnant, and Conrad is such a blatant MartyStu that [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization every girl in the area is all too eager to bed him]].

* In ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', Casca is taken from her home by the local noble who owns her family's land, though Griffith saves her just before anything happens. Though considering what kind of person Griffith is, "saved" may not be the best word to use.

* Debunked on [[http://www.straightdope.com ''The Straight Dope'']], citing the dubiousness of historical accounts, the absence of proof, and the grim but all-too-plausible argument that no medieval upper-class thug with a sword would ''need'' such a legal entitlement to get away with raping peasant women.
