* ''{{Tsukihime}}'' plays this literally; [[spoiler: making sexy time is the only way to hold back [[EnemyWithin Roa]] in Ciel's route. She likes it in the ass, though, so it may not exactly be mating.]]

* ''ComicBook/ElfQuest'' has Recognition, a telepathic mating urge that forces elf couples with good genetic matches to mate and have children. Elves who try to resist become sick, though WordofGod is that the elves won't actually die, since that defeats the point. They may feel like they're going to, though.

** Also used for slash pairings that are less popular in the fandom and lack even subtextual support in canon, such as John and [[ParentalIncest either of his sons]], [[TheFriendsThatNeverHang Castiel and Sam]], [[SiblingIncest Castiel and any other angel, since angels are technically all siblings]] or characters who are canonically enemies such as Sam/ Lucifer or Dean/ Ruby or canonically strangers such as John/ Ruby or John/ Castiel.

Added DiffLines:

* Extremely popular in {{Supernatural}} slash fic as a way to help Sam and Dean get over their [[SiblingIncest But He's My Brother]] aversion to sexual activity. The canonical series has already established them as being so codependent that they're willing to sell their souls and go to hell for one another so writers figure what's a little sex amongst brothers if it'll save each others lives? This is usually commenced by one or both brothers being exposed to sex pollen (makes them super horny and their brains will fry from fever if they don't act on it), sex magic (a witch or a curse that forces them to be sexual together), or some combination that literally creates a screw or die situation (name has been mellowed for the less spicy nature of TV Tropes).

* A DarkerAndEdgier ''{{Redwall}}'' fanfic used this to explain Veil's conception. Swartt had apparently no interest in Bluefen in canon, yet they had a kid. The characters involved are [[TalkingAnimal anthropomorphic]] ferrets, and the females have a tendency to develop diseases of the bone marrow if they don't mate at the appropriate time. Sooo ...

** It's also notable that originally, pon farr was something that only Vulcan ''males'' were subjected to. By the time of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' and later [[StarTrekExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]] literature, pon farr became flanderized to where it affected ''all'' Vulcans.

* ''[[TheLaundrySeries The Jennifer Morgue]]'' by Charles Stross has Ramona Random, an assassin from the CIA's occult equivalent with a succubus bound to her soul. The thing is regularly "fed" by consuming the souls of people Ramona has sex with... and when it gets hungry and Ramona's mark dies of a heart attack before climaxing, she's in a rough spot, as "if it doesn't get the little death, it'll go straight for the big one."

** The fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9795158/1/Written-in-the-Stars Written in the Stars]]'', a fic in which the Kirks of both timelines are women, deserves a mention as it puts a spin on Pon Farr. In this story, not even combat can relieve male Vulcans of Pon Farr, and if a male loses the right to mate with his betrothed, another woman would have to be found before the male died. In the original timeline, Fem!Kirk offered herself up as a mate for Spock in order to save him, which was how they were married (and how their daughter was conceived). The circumstances in the Alt Reality become a lot more complicated.

* The Doctor Who AU fanfic series [[http://www.whofic.com/series.php?seriesid=168 Destined]] revolves around the idea that male gallifreyans have a sex drive only during two of their regenerations, but the drive is so strong that if they don't get a release for their need every so often it can affect their health to the point of causing a regeneration (effectively death). The real problem is that their sex drive is exclusively focused towards one person only, they imprint on a female present during their post-regeneration crisis. The fanfic focuses on the Fifth Doctor and Tegan, who is the target. Neither of them is very entusiastic about the situation.

* Nappa plays this straight in ''DragonBallZAbridged'', when he (and an unwilling Vegeta) land on the Arlians' planet and force their king and queen to mate on pain of death- except it's the entire race and planet at risk, not just the maters.
