* Invoked in one of ''{{Creator/Gotlib}}''s series satirizing movies in which the directors casts his son as the star and his wife is a technical advisor (she advised he star their son, technically he couldn't refuse).

* On ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' the guys plan on having a no girlfriends, weekend gaming marathon but Howard's fiancée Bernadette ends up tagging along. She's a useless addition to their fighting party, saying "pew, pew" instead of actually hitting the keys to shoot and concentrating solely on healing her fiancée's character (when she's supposed to be the group healer). But of course, they all put up with it and don't kick the both of them out because well, for one thing it'd be mean (and she meant well). Oddly enough it's mostly averted by [[DumbBlonde Penny]]; when she bothers to join in on Halo Night she's actually a kick ass gamer in her own right.

This trope is much older than, and not limited to gaming situations, though. Before there were [=RPGs=], it was a situation that would arise in theatre, film, and TV--the director would give his girlfriend a large or important role, or a producer would insist that his current girlfriend be given a part as a condition for his backing. In most cases, she is not competent enough to handle the role; in some, she's not competent at all.

* The original ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' series offers a dark in-universe example of this trope: [[spoiler:Alex deliberately manipulates the team's adventures so that his crush Nico will survive the endgame - in which the Gibborim kill all but six of the Earth's inhabitants.]]

* ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' has Creator/KateBeckinsale, who met the director on set and is now married to him. Guess who all the action in 4 films centers on. (Scott Speedman even mention how awkward is to perform a sex scene when the actress' husband is behind the camera.)

* In a very similar vein, Creator/MillaJovovich in the ''Film/ResidentEvil'' film series met the director on set and they are now married. Might explain some of her telekinesis, super strength, replication and HealingFactor when the video games are mostly about BadassNormal people fighting zombies and mutant creatures.
** To his credit, Paul Anderson recognized this and [[BroughtDownToNormal knocked Milla back down to normal]] in the fourth movie. Doesn't explain any of her SpotlightStealingSquad or GodModeSue tendencies, though.

** Besson later played this straight as the above mentioned Milla Jovovich, [[RomanceOnTheSet who he started dating during]] ''The Fifth Element'', was cast by him in the title role of ''Film/TheMessengerTheStoryOfJoanOfArc''.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'': "Past Tense" managed to use this trope without the girlfriend even participating. In a college flashback, several characters are playing D&D and encounter a "Leslie golem", an invincible monster that looks exactly like the DM's crush Leslie Cohen. Rusty turns the tables by seducing it, causing the DM to hold a grudge for the rest of his life.
-->'''Rusty:''' You're gonna kill me because I had fake sex on graph paper with a girl who barely spoke to you in real life?
