* In ''VideoGame/FableI'', having a high enough attractiveness and a [[HundredPercentAdorationRating good enough reputation]] means that the Hero can't walk down the street without a few nearby men and women hopefully saying, "A wedding ring would be nice..."

* Parodied in ''[[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic The Nostalgia Critic's]]'' review of ''[[Film/LesMiserables2012 Les Miserables]]'', where WebVideo/PawDugan mocks how unrealistic this trope is... right before sharing it with Elisa from ''WebVideo/VampireReviews''. They then proceed to [[MusicalEpisode sing a song about how stupid love in first sight is (which evolves into a song about how great it is)]]. This is also an example of RealLifeWritesThePlot, as the two [[RomanceOnTheSet really were romantically involved; they were engaged at the time of recording]].

** Subverted with Hyper, as she finds Critic sexy on first appearance but only convinces herself later that it must be love. Doug's talked at length about how much this trope doesn't work in real life, and that it's more like "Attraction At First Sight".

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Franchise/TheWitcher The Witcher Saga]]'' plays with this. Geralt and Yennefer seemingly fall for one another within their first meeting in "The Last Wish." However, they have a ''very'' dysfunctional relationship where they often fight, cheat on one another, break up, and make up numerous times over the years. It's not until Ciri enters the picture where they finally reach some form of stability in taking her in as their adopted daughter.

* In ''VideoGame/UncommonTime'', Aubrey falls hopelessly in love with Alto the moment they see her. This might have something to do with the fact that she's the first person they see when they're revived from their hibernation spell.
