** In ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', while playing [[FemmeFatale Queen Arachnia]] in the [[ShowWithinAShow Captain Proton holoprogram]] Janeway uses her vial of "irresistable pheromones" to make [[BigBad Dr Chaotica]] release her. Unfortunately Chaotica moves out of sniffing range, leaving her to get slobbered over by his [[YouFool ugly henchman Lonzak]] instead.

* Henry Sackerman's novel ''The Love Bomb'' fits in here better than anywhere else: A {{Human Alien|s}} from a peaceful and uninhibited planet lands on earth, and is mystified and chagrined with how violent and prudish the natives are. So, after many misadventures, he ends up getting his buddy to drop a chemical weapon which neutralizes people's hostilities and inhibitions. (For example, two juvenile delinquents are fighting on account of [[MySisterIsOffLimits one of them having slept with the other's sister]]. They destroy their knives, talk the situation over like civilized young men, and [[AirHugging Air Hug]]. A man who [[AwfulWeddedLife despises his wife for a mean old cow—and is despised in return for a pathetic slacker—]]buys her roses before he comes home, convinced that the gesture will be lost on her. He finds her cooking his favorite dish and looking dewy-eyed. And so on.) In many cases, it acts as an aphrodisiac.

* In ''TheTenthKingdom'', Kissing Town makes this trope quite literal, since not only are there magical hearts floating everywhere around every happy couple getting married, but every time Virginia seems ready to dismiss Wolf as a love interest, in swoop the hearts to change her mind and turn her into a hopeless romantic. They even form a gigantic heart over the pair's heads when they share their first kiss.

* ''FrankenFran'' tries to make an actor more "charismatic" using pheromones in chapter 36, but her calculations are a little off and the situation gets out of control. Notably, she acknowledges that pheromones don't normally have much of an effect on people, but [[{{Handwave}} somehow makes it work anyway.]]

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Xander tries to get Cordelia attracted to him again by casting a love spell; it backfires, and every female he gets near ''except'' Cordy starts throwing herself at him. Probably only 'didn't work' on Cordy because she already loved him.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' episode "Rick Potion #9", Rick creates a [[LovePotion love potion]] that causes those effected by it to become obsessively in love to the point of wanting to have sex with him then and their. The problem though is that the person he uses it on - his school-crush Jessica - had the flu. Because of this, the love potion becomes and airborne virus that affects everyone in the world, regardless of who they are, if they ever met Morty or what their sexual orientation.

* ''[[NewMutants New X-Men]]'' featured Wallflower, a mutant girl who could cause people to experience any variety of emotions through pheromone release.
