* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fan fiction has this pop up fairly often during [[RonTheDeathEater Weasely-bashing]]. Ron will claim he deserves Hermione, Ginny believes she was destined to have Harry, and Molly has a fanatical belief that her children deserve their love interest.

This is often justified by the Weseley being pure-blooded so they have the ''right'' to arrange this.

[[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.

The ''what they don't do'' type can easily come across as InsaneTrollLogic, but is actually quite reasonable FromACertainPointOfView: the view of a guy who believes that regular male sexuality is mostly about SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny, and that women owe him a debt of gratitude for not being a rapist like those other guys. (Of course, he might even ''be'' a rapist -- making the whole thing even more ironic.) Or the view of a gal who learned to identify a bit too much with MyGirlIsNotASlut. In both cases, the character might come across as a [[SourPrudes Sour Prude]].

See also SourPrudes and SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny, as well as LieBackAndThinkOfEngland and MyGirlIsNotASlut. Polar opposite of EthicalSlut, where characters of any genders have fun together -- and encourage potential partners to want to have sex with them, rather than trying to squeeze favors out of someone who just isn't interested.

* Hyper Fangirl to WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic. Even before she kidnapped him, forcing him to love her at gunpoint and preferring him that way, she {{wangst}}ed for a good few weeks after he told her straight up he wouldn't sleep with her.

** Quasimodo is a subversion. He does hope for a relationship with Esmeralda at first, and expressed longing for the kind of love he's seen watching couples from the bell-tower, but he never believes he ''deserves'' her. Quite the opposite. It takes the gargoyles to tell him (in their own way) how special he is for him to believe he has a chance, and in the end he shows no ill feelings toward the relationship between her and Phoebus and is in fact, happy for them.
** Frollo plays it straight, in a very creepy manner. Since Esmeralda is "a sinner", it's ''his'' job to set her straight, and if she refuses him she shall ''be burned at the stake''.

** Frollo plays it straight, embodies this trope toward Esmeralda, in a very creepy manner. Since Esmeralda is "a sinner", it's ''his'' job to set her straight, and if she refuses him she shall ''be burned at the stake''. Quasimodo, by heroic contrast, is a subversion. While he hopes for a relationship with Esmeralda at first, and expresses longing for the kind of love he's seen watching couples from the bell-tower, he never believes he ''deserves'' her quite the opposite and in the end he shows no ill feelings toward the relationship between her and Phoebus and is in fact, happy for them.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has Martellus von Blitzengaard. At first it's because he [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20121105#.VvVXaOKLTIU comes waltzing in]] to 'save' Agatha from an army - which she was actually handling perfectly well herself - but then it takes an even darker turn when he kidnaps her, calling it a 'rescue', and then apparently expects her to be grateful because [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20130603#.VvVZ6eKLTIU he didn't make her into his adoring "mindless slave"]] when he had the chance. And then he starts helping her defeat their mutual enemies, and apparently thinks that this will make her think kindly of him. [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20141222#.VvVbLeKLTIU Big surprise - it doesn't.]] It's made very clear that Martellus is in the wrong in every possible way here - in a comic full of GreyAndGrayMorality, he's one of the few antagonists who is considered utterly reprehensible - and Agatha gets several satisfying panels of beating him up every so often.
** Gil, one of Agatha's primary love interests, gets a much less dramatic one [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20040705#.VvVcM-KLTIU early on]], when he [[WithThisRing proposes to her out of nowhere]] and expects her to immediately accept. Although it's shown that this was a very bad idea on Gil's part, he does have some justification - Agatha's just been revealed to be an extremely powerful [[MadScientist Spark]], and Sparks with no family connections end up being exploited or killed, often burned as witches in rural areas, and female Sparks have been mysteriously disappearing for years. It still doesn't mean that it's treated very sympathetically, though.

** The vain and egotistical hunter Gaston is universally acknowledged by the inhabitants of Belle's village as the richest, manliest, and most popular ''guy'' in town. Therefore he thinks that Belle, universally acknowledged by the same authority as the most beautiful ''girl'' in town, is the person most fit to be his bride, and he is so sure she won't be able to turn down a splendid man like him that he makes all the arrangements for the wedding ''before'' he proposes to her. When she finally makes it clear that she's ''really'' not into him he gets really upset, and eventually comes up with a villainous plan to ''force'' her to marry him because he feels she shouldn't have a ''right'' to refuse him like that.

** 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!
