* ''Film/JamesBond'' obviously is a good candidate for this. The most memorable scene has to be ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'' with Fiona Volpe. It's notable for ''both'' failing to significantly affect the other's disposition.

* This is one of the many, many ways Maids can compete for Master's love in ''MaidRPG''. They can do this with ''[[LesYay each other]]'' as the target of seduction.

** One source describes two very unlikely lovers, [[OurAngelsAreDifferent the agathinon Janarr]] and the [[HornyDevils erinyes Nalura]] hiding out in mortal disguise on the Prime. They sort of just did their jobs ''too well'' she tried to seduce him, he tried to turn her attitude up to celestial standards. Before they knew whom exactly they faced, both succeeded. They had to hide from their respective bosses from that point on, though.

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' plays the hell out of this one in the trial scene on Manaan. It starts as a straight up version of this, then gets interesting.

** The scene in ''DeadMansChest'' with Elizabeth Swan and Captain Jack Sparrow, each trying to get the other to do something in return for something else. She wants to prove he's not as bad as he pretends, he...well, his motivations seem transparent, but on the other hand, it's [[WildCard Jack]].
** Jack and Angelica in the fourth film.

* GossipGirl - Chuck and Blair, nearly all the time. Subverted as they do in fact actually love each other [[CannotSpitItOut but are just incapable of admitting it to each other]] and are/were in fact, the most popular pairing on the show. Blair is also not portrayed negatively or evilly.

A SisterTrope to LadykillerInLove, this is what happens when TheCasanova and the FemmeFatale (Or [[TropesAboutPerverts some similar character archetypes]]) are both trying to seduce each other for their own purposes at the same time. Most of the time, there is no sincere romance between the two, each one is [[ManipulativeBastard strategically putting the moves on the other]], trying to seduce them to join [[FaceHeelTurn their]] [[HeelFaceTurn side]], give them information, or obtain the MacGuffin for them. As such, this is often one of the EspionageTropes. Often, DuelOfSeduction ends in a SexFaceTurn. In the mean time, it's a good opportunity for copious {{Fanservice}}.

* An ancient ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' joke: OnceUponATime a young lad and a young lass, wizards' apprentices. They decided to exchange some magics. Both cheated and cast CharmPerson to ease the bargain, and both failed their saving throws horribly. They lived HappilyEverAfter and even died the same day.

It didn't even have anything to do with his own plans; he did it entirely because he wanted to bed her.]]
