* [[http://www.theonion.com/articles/but-if-we-started-dating-it-would-ruin-our-friends,11473/ This article]] from TheOnion offers a rare PerspectiveFlip on the matter, not defending the "nice guy" MO but raising the question of whether a girl who knowingly manipulates him is really any better.

* GirlWritesWhat, in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9XDb0nxSO4 this video]], discusses how the trope is often [[WrongGenreSavvy invoked]] in defense of reprehensible behavior on the part of the pursued. She focuses particularly on analyzing and deconstructing the claim that "Nice Guys" are Types B and C. (Predictably, feminists aren't buying it; especially since some of the claimed reformed "Nice Guys" admit to those behaviors, although others will attest that this is still used to unfairly pin malice on a DoggedNiceGuy).
* Another Youtuber, [=the1janitor=] puts [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rZu-tBi7DM his own two cents]] on this kind of behavior. He discusses how many so-called "Nice Guys" seem to confuse being nice with being an ExtremeDoormat, mixed with tones of WantsAPrizeForBasicDecency.

* "Madame Macabre" made a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdO4_q4WFcE video]] about having to deal with this trope in high school.A guy she called "Gary" told Madame's friends that she had "cruelly friend zoned" him in order to guilt her into dating him. Even though,in reality,she didnt date him because he [[StalkerWithACrush constantly texted her about wanting to hang out despite her refusals.]],acted creepily around her when she caved in and hung out with him (including making a[[JustJokingJustification "joke"]] about [[BuxomIsBetter how hot her breasts looked]]),and [[BastardBoyfriend breaking up with his more-loving girlfriend,and Madame's friend,Julie pretty much because he thought Madame was hotter]]. Did I mention he told Julie to not talk to Madame anymore because he said it would damage his nonexistant relationship with her?

There are several basic ways in which Bob can justify his sense of entitlement, [[TheUnfairSex all of which can just as]] [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale easily apply to women as well:]]

* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'': Cell's attitude towards the Androids is a non-romantic version of this; he basically thinks he's entitled to [[TheAssimilator absorb them]]. Though some innocent bystanders overhear him yelling at Android 18 and mistake them for lovers, and HilarityEnsues.

* The page quote is from VideoGame/MassEffect. The source of the quote is Turian General Septimus Oraka, who falls hard for the Consort Shaira who is implied to be a HighClassCallGirl [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold with a heart of gold]], "servicing" the elites who live on the Citadel Presidium. She sees him as just another high ranking official who requires her services. He feels otherwise. When she outright rejects him, he [[DrowningMySorrows can be found in a strip joint, drinking his sorrows away]].
