* And in another Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} story, Power Boy kisses Supergirl’s hand. Kara gets pretty puzzled about the gesture.



* Manages to pull at least quadruple duty at the end of DawnOfTheDead2004. Newly-widowed nurse Anna and now-childless TV salesman Michael obviously don't meet under the most [[ZombieApocalypse romantic of circumstances,]] but they begin to connect over the course of the film, making the fact that he's bitten saving her life a last second gut punch. When their group makes it to a boat to sail for possible safety, [[HeroicSacrifice he reveals the bite and opts to stay behind despite her protests,]] knowing the certain danger he'd pose if he stayed. As he helps make ready to shove off, he grabs her hand for a final kiss, before taking in the sunrise and putting one through his chin. This is also an example of:
** TearJerker: The two had just started getting to know each other and hadn't even shared a kiss yet.
** FridgeBrilliance: The infection could possibly have been spread mouth to mouth so Michael [[AnywhereButTheirLips sidestepped that]] while still [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming showing some final affection]].

* ComicBook/{{Rogue}} of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, occasionally finds herself the recipeint of a kiss on her hand. Gambit, Nightcrawler, and a few other good friends have been known to do this for her. Unfortunately, because of her dangerous mutant ability, Rogue still has to leave her gloves on. But to her, it's the thought that counts.

* In ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', Dream kisses the gloved hand of his beloved older sister Death in one scene. Because she ''is'' Death, this is the only gesture of physical affection he can make toward her without unfortunate results.



* Used in a non-romantic way in ''FanFic/ShadowAndRose'', when the companions are saying farewell before the penultimate battle. Alistair is tongue-tied for what to say to Wynne, his mother figure, so he does this instead.

* Dorian does it to Victoria in ''[[Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge All This Sh*t is Twice as Weird]]'', promising to take a rain check on her invitation to have a drink with her and Mahanon. It's mostly a gesture of affection (they are developing a LikeBrotherAndSister friendship), but it's also a subtle bit of trolling because they have [[GreenEyedMonster a particular observer]].
** Grand Duke Gaspard also does it to the Lady Inquisitor at the Winter Palace ball, upon meeting her for the first time.



* It's easy to miss, but at the end of ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'', [[spoiler:when the clans are returning to their homes, one of the clan leader's sons can be seen kissing Merida's hand as they prepare to leave. Given that Merida and all three of the sons agreed that they weren't ready to be married, it likely was meant as a sign of friendship or respect (she's still, after all, the king's daughter).]]
* PlayedForLaughs in ''WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess''--when Derek and Odette, [[ArrangedMarriage who are betrothed]], meet as children, Derek's mom forces him to kiss Odette's hand. She looks like [[TomboyPrincess she might punch him]] for trying, and afterwards he [[GirlsHaveCooties immediately wipes his mouth in disgust]].

* In ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'' Diaval is seen doing this to [[spoiler: Aurora, when she comes to visit the moors.]] This is quite likely a moment that caused people to ship these two, and also one that established that Diaval is cultured. Even though he's actually a bird.

** In "Bride of Chaotica!", [[EmperorScientist Dr Chaotica]] does this to Queen Arachnia is his usual LargeHam manner after she strides majestically into his throne room. As Arachnia is being played by Captain Janeway, she's not impressed. When he tries it again later, [[KissDiss she walks off just as he's bending down to kiss]].

* In ''Theatre/HenryV'', Henry works very, very hard to woo his soon-to-be wife Katherine, who he "won" by conquering France. After finally getting through to her (she doesn't speak English, he doesn't speak French) he gallantly moves in to kiss her hand (he actually says, "I kiss your hand"), to which she strenuously objects. A little confused, he offers to kiss her on the lips, and she freaks out because "it is not the fashion of the maids in France to kiss before they are married." His artful response, which starts with, "Oh, Kate. Nice customs curtsy to great kings" is charming enough that she eventually lets him kiss her on the lips.

* SherlockHolmes does this when introducing himself to Miss Lavinia Bromsby in ''VideoGame/SherlockHolmesAndTheSecretOfTheSilverEarring. It's sort of hilarious for canon purists, since he ''never'' does such a thing in his original stories.



* It takes a turn for the weird in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', where it's a [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120831 giant dragon construct]] who kiss the hand of a MiniMecha manned by the new Heterodyne as sign of respect.

** In the opening of "First Person Shooter" a game player encounters the avatar known as Maitreya, who has the body of [[MsFanservice Krista Allen in a leather fetish outfit]]. Unsurprisingly he drops to one knee and kisses her glove. Surprisingly for him, her glove morphs into a flintlock pistol that shoots him in the face.

* In ''Film/NannyMcPhee,'' Mr. Brown [[YouHaveWaitedLongEnough is marrying Mrs. Quickly]] despite really, ''really'' not wanting to. When she extends her hand for him to kiss, he merely shakes it; it's not clear if he's purposely avoiding the gesture or is just too distracted to realize what she was going for.

** Anytime Thor kisses Jane's hand. Particularly the first time, since it was after Thor was causing nothing but trouble for Jane and Jane decides she can't be involved anymore and apologizes for being unable to take him where he wants to go, he thanks her for everything she's done for him and just kisses her hand.
