The ''what they do'' type is usually more passive-aggressive, and one of the big reasons why being a self-defined "NiceGuy" might mean something entirely different from actually being good or even nice. (See also NiceGuysFinishLast; contrast DoggedNiceGuy and AllGirlsWantBadBoys, where the nice guy actually ''is'' nice, or at least [[TheScrappy expected to be seen as such according to the narrative]].) However, this behavior is not limited to guys who consider themselves nice. A straight {{Jerkass}} character might buy a woman a drinků without informing her that he considers her a very cheap hooker whom he has now bought and is entitled to use.

* In ''Series/BabylonFive'' "[[Recap/BabylonFiveS02E12ActsOfSacrifice Acts of Sacrifice]]" Commander Ivanova is tasked with getting the Lumati, a new race they have encountered, to sign a treaty with Earth. After a misunderstanding results in their representative to be impressed by Earth's culture, he agrees to sign the treaty. The catch is, as tradition is very important to his people, they must sign the accord as is customary with his people: they will have sex. Ivanova, guessing the person is as ignorant of Earth culture as she was of his, tricks him into agreeing to have sex "human style" and [[spoiler:does a fun dance around him saying some pick-up lines and screaming a fake orgasm]] and gets him to leave. It is noted by the series creator had her commanding officer been the one meeting this representative, he too would have been expected by the Lumati to put out.

* Snape from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' seems to have had at least a degree of this in regards to [[spoiler: Lily Evans. They were childhood friends who bonded over being magical kids in a world of muggles, and Snape loved her since the beginning. She ended her friendship (and any potential romance) in their fifth year, when he became more and more invested in the dark arts and publicly called her a slur, but he never stopped loving her. A good portion of his bullying of Harry was due to him being Lily's son to a man he hated.]]

** Merope in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'' [[TroubledAbuser was a unhappy woman]] who was abused by her father and brother. In her unhappiness, Merope projected her dreams of happiness onto the wealthy and handsome young noble, Tom Riddle Sr who already had a girlfriend. Using a LovePotion to force Tom to abandon his parents and girlfriend to run off with her, Merope had a [[ChildByRape child with him]]. After enough time had passed, Merope simply expected Tom to love her and thus ended the spell, unsurprisingly Tom ran off in terror rather then return the affection of the witch who had enslaved him.

[[AliceAndBob Bob]] identifies himself with a community, a nationality, a religion, a subculture or whatever. As such Bob feels Alice is obligated to be with him, one way or another. Perhaps, given that they identify with the same construct, she will be a [[CategoryTraitor "traitor" to "their kind"]] if she does not date or marry within it. Or maybe he just feels that by belonging to the category he "deserves" her more than someone that does not. The former justification often goes hand-in-hand with the latter. If Alice complies, she might even discover that Bob is willing to take his sense of entitlement further still.

* Happens more than a few times in ''ComicBook/TexWiller'', the most notable being a "Who They Are" a Navajo (and rejected suitor) used to justify his kidnapping of Lilyth, Tex' wife, shortly after their wedding-resulting in the Navajo being shot by ''his accomplice'' (a man from another tribe who had a beef with Tex and manipulated him into bringing him a hostage). [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Considering what Tex does to anyone who threatens or hurts his family]] and [[FateWorseThanDeath what he did to the accomplice]], he got off easy.

* Music/AvrilLavigne: The infamous "Girlfriend" song is about a JerkAss "punk girl" who hounds a boy who's already taken, insists that his much more homely girlfriend is "like whatever" and tells him that she's a better lay so he should date her instead (while said girlfriend [[TheChewToy is constantly punished for being upset due to that]]). Lavigne says that she intended to either poke fun or call out girls who do such shit, but the video to the song plays this trope '''infamously''' straight.

[[AliceAndBob Bob]] identifies himself with a social construct--a nationality, a religion, a subculture or whatever. As such Bob feels Alice is obligated to be with him, one way or another. Perhaps, given that they identify with the same construct, she will be a [[CategoryTraitor "traitor" to "their kind"]] if she does not date or marry within it. Or maybe he just feels that by belonging to the category he "deserves" her more than someone that does not. The former self-justification often goes hand-in-hand with the latter. If Alice complies, she might even discover that Bob is willing to take his sense of entitlement further still.

** Beast acts this way towards Belle at first, in that--while he doesn't expect her to love him right away--he at least feels entitled to her cooperation as his guest, despite the fact that he just tore her away from her father and she's still getting used to life in the castle. When Belle doesn't want to eat dinner with him, he gets frustrated and yells at her to go ahead and STAAAARVE! A good part of his CharacterDevelopment is about him dropping this really bad trait, which culminates with him [[spoiler:willingly letting Belle go back home, which he does [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy ''because'' he loves her]].]]
