* In ''{{Deryni}} Checkmate'', (then) Countess Richenda of Marley is this to Alaric Morgan from the first time he sees her. He dreams of her for months afterward, and is finally introduced to her by Kelson during preparations for the Torenthi campaign in ''High Deryni''. She lampshades this trope just after they share a [[PsychicLink Mind Link]]: "Then I have given you that much more to fight for." After their marriage, she also inspires him to fill the gaps in his arcane education, passing on much of her own Eastern-influenced training to him.

* Bioware games tend to have one good female character as a romantic option for the PlayerCharacter, and they tend to get upset with you if you do something ForTheEvulz. Obviously, these ''are'' Bioware games, so this trope can just as easily be PlayedStraight, {{averted}}, {{subverted}} (you CorruptTheCutie), {{inverted}} (the player character could be the inspirer), etc.

* Pit in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' is completely devoted to Palutena and stands beside her despite [[JerkassGods her constant trolling]].

* Rem in ''{{Trigun}}'' inspired and guided the main character, Vash. She's the reason he never kills anyone, no matter how much they deserve it. She took Vash and Knives in as her own children when the crew found them, and acted as their surrogate mother. She is extremely kind and idealistic, and Vash treats her lessons and worldviews as sacred.
* Miu in ''HistorysStrongestDiscipleKenichi''. She's the granddaughter of the WorldsStrongestMan, and she's ''[[CantCatchUp always]]'' been a better martial artist than Kenichi, who makes it his goal to be strong enough to protect her.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has touched on this a few times. Often the Doctor's driving motivation to help is the (usually female) companion he has with him at the time, either due to her encouragement or because she finds herself imperiled. Due to story-related reasons too complex to relate here, the 2005-2006 companion Rose Tyler and the 2013-2015 companion Clara Oswald at times satisfy the "idealized woman" aspect of the trope as well.

* Deconstructed by Creator/OsamuTezuka in ''Barbara'', released during the peak of his {{Gekiga}} period. The Hero's Muse is no idealized woman but an alcoholic, filthy, and rude prostitute (still a ShamelessFanserviceGirl), yet she's explicitely refered to as a muse since she embodies everything that inspires an artist. Plus, she [[Really700YearsOld actually IS]] a [[Myth/GreekMythology Greek muse]]. She also counts as a parody of the ManicPixieDreamGirl.
