* Cally in ''Film/{{Doomsday}}''. Notable mostly because her father has given up on winning her father's paranoia over to his cause, and now just wants her dead.brother's rebellion causes her to fear for her life from him, justifiably as he winds up blaming her for bringing in "impurity". Also notable because the main character is a woman, so Cally winds up a sort of ImpliedLoveInterest for a more minor character.

* The Yellow Claw, a MarvelComics CaptainErsatz for Fu Manchu, had a Beautiful Grandniece, who repeatedly betrayed him due to her love for FBI agent [[ComicBook/AgentsOfAtlas Jimmy Woo]]. Eventually, he put her in [[HumanPopsicle suspended animation]] until he could fuse her soul with that of a suitably power-mad Egyptian princess. Really.

* Subverted in ''Literature/DieAlchimistin''. Aura Institoris is certainly beautiful, and kept cloistered in her castle and then at the institute at her father's wish, and her father in an alchemist who is most definitely not all there, and she is (in the beginning) his favorite child, but [[spoiler:it turns out that he was maintaining their bond and keeping her away from the world so that he could ''get her pregnant and kill her as soon as she gives birth'', because this is what would keep him immortal. And it also turns out that Aura's mother was her father's daughter as well]].

* Globally subverted in the forum story ''TheMadScientistWars''. In the story, the trope is reimagined as the "Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter ploy", in which the daughter will ''always'' pretend to help the hero escape, then drop him into some even nastier bit of trouble. Apparently, it's hard on the heroes and fun for the daughters.
