* Subverted in ''Literature/SorcererToTheCrown'': Prunella wants to travel to London with Zacharias. Her guardian would not allow this without a chaperone, so Prunella creates a kind of golem out of old clothes and illusions to give the impression that there is an older maidservant who will travel with them. There is no need for an actual chaperone, as Zacharias isn't a rapist (as is stated in an earlier scene when Prunella is alone with him, the thought would not even enter his mind), and Prunella is a practical-minded woman who wouldn't do anything that would damage her future.

* Occasionally referenced in the works of Creator/RobertAHeinlein. If they're set before WorldWarII, then chaperonage was an issue to be confronted.

Usually a devout older woman [[EverythingTryingToKillYou who may be very naïve about the world]], though a common variation is one who has had a very eventful life, [[AllMenArePerverts and thus knows exactly what to expect from young men]].

See also: MoralGuardians, OverprotectiveDad, MaidAndMaiden (the maid is chaperoning and the maiden is being chaperoned).

* In ''Literature/{{Heidi}}'', Fräulein Rottenmeier's role seems to prevent the title character (who is a rather adventurous 5-year-old) from having ''too much'' influence on her ward Klara, who is very frail.
* In ''Literature/{{Airborn}}'', Ms. Simpkins fits this to a tee; she's not very brave, tries to keep her charge Kate from doing anything fun, and is especially suspicious when any young men are around.

* ''Ruy Blaz'': A minor character shows up to tell the queen that while the queen is out hunting, she is not allowed to dance, eat sweets or basically enjoy herself.
** The pastiche movie ''La Folie des Grandeurs'' expands this character quite a bit, by making her think Ruy Blaz is secretly in love with her. HilarityEnsues.
* One story by Jean De La Fontaine concerns a wife escorted by a chaperone, which greatly limits her extraconjugal affairs.

* In ''Literature/AllMenOfGenius'', it's assumed by many characters that this is the situation with Cecily and her governess Miriam, though in fact, Miriam isn't actually very old and is a lot less prim when she isn't under observation. She's in a relationship with one of the senior students at the Academy, and goes out drinking with him and his friends. This causes problems when another student notices and tries to blackmail her into letting him hook up with Cecily.
