* ''Series//{{Turn}}'' plays this trope for drama and tragedy with [[TheCasanova Major]] [[TheChessmaster John]] [[ManipulativeBastard Andre]], the head of British military intelligence. He likes to use his charm and good looks (as well as sexual liaisons) to turn women into agents and sources, and that's what he plans to with gorgeous young [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman Peggy Shippen]] in Philadelphia--he convinces her to begin communicating with Benedict Arnold in order to turn him to the British side. However, Andre falls in love with Peggy and plans to elope with her in New York, until he realizes that leaving her in rebel-occupied Philadelphia would help his cause. Unfortunately, Peggy eventually marries Arnold, while Andre obsesses over turning Arnold in order to get her back. This leads to his getting caught behind enemy lines and being hanged as a spy.

* Valentine in Creator/GeorgeBernardShaw's ''You Never Can Tell'' is a particularly meta example: a GenreSavvy Ladykiller whose shtick is to ''pretend'' to be a Ladykiller In Love, who for the first time falls genuinely in love. Once Gloria learns that all his protestations of love are rehearsed lines, it becomes especially hard for him to convince her that this time, he means them.
