** ''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]].

There are a lot of games out there that want to encourage relationships, romance, and sex between the characters: a game where you LevelUpAtIntimacy5 ''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 [[VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} various]] [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Personae.]]

* In ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic II'', you can train certain characters as Jedi if you get your Influence score with them high enough. Even characters who can't become Jedi still offer other bonuses, such as experience points and stat boosts.

* ''VideoGame/Persona4'' continues the trend but, like the Female Protagonist of ''3 Portable'' afterward, applies it to your allies. Odd-numbered Social Link ranks add additional in-battle effects ranging from using follow-up attacks to taking lethal attacks for the MC, while the Personas of your allies will only mutate to their final forms once you have fully maximized that person's Social Link.
