* Inverted in ''Film/AChorusLine'' where the ''ex-''girlfriend of the director is at auditions applying for one of the roles in the show, because she wants to work as a dancer and nobody will hire her, saying she's ''too good''. He realizes she really is much more talented than he was thinking she is, and gives her one of the parts. He kids her by saying that he guesses she'll have to sleep with him again to keep the part.

* In ''Literature/BinderOfShame'', the story arc ''Never Leave Your Nads Behind'' is a homebrew RPG set up so that Asenath (a woman who is very pretty except for a stunted arm), who was Deviant Boy's girlfriend at the time, can Mary Sue some alien slavers to death. The other players get turned into a pet baby (Psycho Dave), a hairless castrato (Weasley Crusher), and a trophy wife (Ab3), and have to hold out for her to come save them. Luckily, The Amazing Boozehound gets drunk and goes on a one-man LARP session, inadvertently getting the police to save them from it.

** Sadly, Marisha receives a fair amount of bullying from certain members of the fanbase who can't see past their preconceived notions of the "DM's girlfriend" archetype and backlash against her simply because she fits the literal description.

* Nicely averted in ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'' -- Matt treats his fiancée Marisha the same as any other player during sessions.

Matt's only response: "You should have read the spell."

Term used in roleplaying game circles for a player--often literally the DM's girlfriend (or boyfriend), sometimes a younger family member--who is getting special treatment from the gamemaster due to an out-of game personal relationship, specifically because the GM either wants to curry favor with them or is afraid of incurring their ire. This is often at the expense of other players, who showed up at the table to participate equally, but have somehow ended up playing sidekicks to the '''Dungeonmaster's Girlfriend'''.

'''Dungeonmaster's Girlfriend'''.



In case of roleplay, the girlfriend or sibling might actually have an advantage by knowing the DM better than the other players without any favoritism coming into play.
