There are a lot of games out there that want to encourage relationships, romance, and sex between the characters: a game where you Level-Up At Intimacy 5 ''actually makes your character stronger'' or gives them additional capabilities for doing so, usually by having increased RelationshipValues correspond exactly to combat modifiers - say, Intimacy Dice in BlissStage or the powers of your [[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona various Personas]].

** BlissStageFirstAndFinalAct takes this to its logical conclusion: having sex with a partner gets you an InfinityPlusOneSword, with special abilities that break the rules of the (tabletop) game.

* ''TabletopGame/LegendsOfTheWulin'', SpiritualSuccessor and sequel to ''WeaponsOfTheGods'', likewise has mechanics for strengthening your partner's chi through sex. As above, it normally only works with heterosexual actions; homosexual male sex is damaging to both partners, female-female sex is simply not sex for kung-fu-related purposes. This can be gotten around by developing the proper Daoist Sexual Technique.

* In ''RecordOfAgarestWar'', you have to raise the affection level of a potential LoveInterest before you can even choose her to be the mother of your child for the next generation, and the higher her affection, the more of her stats gets passed on to said child.

* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'' is a series of pseudo-dating-sim-esque {{RPG}}s practically built around this trope, as you gain most of the game's [[MagicMusic musical spells]] by "diving" into the female characters' inner mental worlds and helping them fix their issues, an act which the game specifically links to romance. Furthermore, the characters' power in battle is increased by "Harmonics", a set of two gauges which represent the feelings of the fighting party and the magical songstresses respectively, which add status boosts to the party when the bars meet in the middle; the bars increase when the fighting party defends your singer-mage, attacks on her behalf, or does something otherwise suitably impressive for her.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel''. Growing the bond between party members increases or enhances the various link abilities they can use, and maxing out the bond between Rean and another character allows an optional romantic encounter between them.

* In RealLife, marriage (but not anything else) unlocks lots of special rights and financial bonuses that make it easier to get a high score and a better game experience. It also makes pregnancy and being over [[ChristmasCake certain age]] much more acceptable. Won't [[spoiler: prevent death]] but makes you less pitiful during it.
** Subverted: you often pay more taxes. [[SoLongAndThanksForAllTheGear And your significant other can often walk away with half of your shit.]]
*** In the United States, you tend to pay more in taxes if each of you earns a similar income. If you instead bring in all the money, you get to pay less.

* ''[[RuneQuest HeroQuest]]'' (the fantasy tabletop rpg set in Glorantha, not the MB boardgame) stats everything up, [[RelationshipValues including relationships.]] Also, any stat can be used to augment any roll provided you can make a case for it to the GM, so your "love for kidnapped princess" score gives you a bonus to fight the dragon, and your "hatred of nuns" score makes it easier for you to kick one in the face.

** ''VideoGame/Persona3'' is a definite example - the various Persona you can use grow stronger as you strengthen your relationship with the character who is associated with the same TarotMotifs. In the case of female characters (including your female teammates), that relationship tends to be romantic in nature. In order to create the Ultimate Incarnation of each Tarot, you need to max out your relationship with that person – of course, that also means that if you want a good lineup, your character is going to turn into a [[MoreFriendsMoreBenefits real Casanova]], since he'll have to win the hearts of five different girls in the same school… (Plus the affections of two girls who you can't actually have a relationship with; a [[spoiler:preteen girl who promises to marry you when she's older]] and [[spoiler:your female homeroom teacher who you meet anonymously through an online game]].)
*** ''[[UpdatedRerelease Persona 3 FES]]'' not only adds another romantic Social Link with [[RobotGirl Aigis]], but allows you to date ([[spoiler:and sleep with]]) Elizabeth, who isn't a Social Link, but will grant you various key items to summon several specific Personas as you progress your relationship. Talk about the living incarnation of studliness…
*** ''[[UpdatedRerelease Persona 3 Portable]]'' adds in a female protagonist, whose route goes ''VideoGame/Persona4''[='s=] way by having nine of her teammates be Social Links (whereas only the female teammates can form Social Links for the guy), who can choose out of five options ([[{{Adorkable}} Akihiko]], [[FanPreferredCouple Shinjiro]], [[MayDecemberRomance Ken]], [[StarCrossedLovers Ryoji]] and Theodore) along with crushes from Bebe and Hidetoshi. She can choose at specific points if she wants to date someone, à la ''Persona 4''. And for the guy, there's no consequence for dating multiple girls, à la (again) ''Persona 4''.

** ''VideoGame/Persona5'' has the "Confidant" mechanic, which is functionally similar to Social Links including the improvements to your Personas and your party members gaining new abilities, but all of them, even NPC cooperations, also give you additional benefits ranging from additional [[ItemCrafting crafting recipes]], to shopping discounts, to improved proficiency at [[GunBoatDiplomacy negotiating with demons]].
