* Happens pretty often in ''Series/SiliconValley''. The only character who had a girlfriend for any amount of time was Gilfoyle. Dinesh and Richard have had a handful of [[GirlOfTheWeek girls of the week]], and one episode implies that the seemingly shy and awkward Jared ReallyGetsAround when he wants to, but there haven't been any relationships lasting more than a few episodes.

* ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries The Jennifer Morgue]]'' discusses, lampshades, and generally plays hell with this trope: the opposition is using a Hero-trap geas, meaning that all efforts to oppose him will be funneled into the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality; since he cast himself as the villain, he can only be successfully resisted by a Film/JamesBond archetype, which is played by [[TheHero Bob]]. He is quickly paired up with a female [[EagleLand Black Chamber]] agent, making her a Bond girl. [[spoiler:And then the trope is turned completely upside down: it turns out that [[TheChessmaster Angleton]] was able to successfully end-run the geas by making Bob's girlfriend, Mo, the true Bond-figure in the geas, meaning that ''Bob'' is the [[DamselInDistress actual Bond girl]], allowing Mo to save the day in a Bond-worthy BigDamnHeroes moment. The narrative also notes that there's almost always two Bond girls, one "[[TheChick light]]", one "{{dark|ActionGirl}}", thus making room for the Black Chamber agent in the geas.]]

* ''[[Fanfic/StarTrekMirror Star Trek: Mirror]]'' uses the long tradition of this trope appearing in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' to [[SubvertedTrope subvert it]] - the reboot version of Kirk automatically assumes that his Mirror counterpart and the Mirror version of Marlena Moreau have a thing going on, but she drops the act as soon as they're alone - Mirror Kirk [[TheBeard uses her as a convenient smokescreen]] to keep people targeting his ''actual'' lover (the Mirror version of Spock).
