* In ''Fanfic/OliviaGoesWest'', when [[WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail Fievel]] and [[Film/TheGreatMouseDetective Olivia]] have confessed their [[CrossoverShip feelings for each other]], she allows him to kiss her hand, considering that to be appropriate for the time being, because she figures that first they have to gain her father's acceptance before they can be a couple and kiss each other.

* ''Film/{{Thor}}''
** 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 -- to which she responds by giggling like a schoolgirl.
** And also in [[spoiler: TheBigDamnKiss]] where Thor and Jane lean forward [[AlmostKiss to kiss]], only for Thor to hesitate and kiss her her hand instead. [[spoiler: Jane pulls him into a kiss anyways.]]

** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy''. The Collector does this to Gamora on first meeting her. It's only a light peck, but it adds to the creepy vibe.



* Manages to pull at least quadruple duty at the end of Film/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.

* In Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/DoubleStar'' the Great Lorenzo's opinion of a fellow actor was "But that popinjay was so conceited that - well, if the role called for him to kiss a lady's hand, Trowbridge would fake it by kissing his own thumb instead."
* Played seriously as a sign of respect in Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/TimeEnoughForLove''. When Weatheral asks permission to treat the legendary Lazarus as a grandparent, Lazarus (who is lying down) agrees and extends his hand. Weatheral kneels and kisses it, only for Lazarus to insist on a hug and a kiss on the mouth - Lazarus is fine with intimacy but not with hero-worship.

* In Turkey, kissing the hands of the elderly (both male and female) is an important sign of gesture and a fairly common custom, especially from children to their grandparents. Doing it to a younger person (middle-aged and below), while acceptable in some cases, is much less common and may even be a serious faux pax. Kissing the hand of a younger woman in such manner tends to send the message that you think she is old and... yeah...
** There is a way to differentiate the romantic version from the one for reverence, however, as the latter is nearly always done with both hands of the kisser, and requires touching the kissee's hand to the kissee's forehead. Doing the former is still unusual, but not necessarily insulting.

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.
