* Mother Gothel and Rapunzel in ''Disney/{{Tangled}}''. She manipulated Rapunzel into staying in her tower and kept her there for many years because she needs Repunzel's hair to help her stay young, it having been filled with the power of magic flower. She plays a doting mother and tries to convince Rapunzel that Flynn is no good when he really wants to help her. She also ties Rapunzel up at the climax and stabs Flynn purely because Flynn is in love with Rapunzel.

* ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'': When people ship Mitth'raw'nuruodo without making him into a DracoInLeatherPants, this tends to be his characterization. It's not uncommon to see him shipped with [[OutboundFlight Maris Ferasi]], a WideEyedIdealist who sees him as completely honorable and good.

* ''ForgottenRealms'': Jarlaxle and Entreri are this, though the platonic version. Unless it's SlashFic, in which case there's a 50/50 chance or better of Jarlaxle seriously screwing with Artemis' head for... other purposes. Though in all fairness, he ''is'' a [[MagnificentBastard drow]]. Hey, MindRape is [[RapeIsLove Love]].

* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': Fits perfectly for those who ship Littlefinger and Sansa, although it's not a very common pairing, as most prefer [[BodyguardCrush Sansa and The Hound.]] Why not [[TakeAThirdOption have both?]] At any rate, Littlefinger/Sansa entirely canon in one direction, and given what [[MagnificentBastard Littlefinger is]] (bearing in mind that he is prominent in this status in a series chock full of them by normal standards) and [[CorruptTheCutie what he seems to be trying to do]] to Sansa, this trope is in full effect.

Also, Facilier practically seduced Naveen into making the deal.

* This is the plot of ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'' in a nutshell. Kaguya and Shinomiya spend their time messing with each other in hopes of forcing a love confession because they're too prideful to give one themselves.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Azula/Zuko, which is made weirder by the [[BrotherSisterIncest other implications]]. She also has traces of this going on with [[strike: Suki, Sokka, Aang...]] '''everyone'''. (That's what happens when your core concept is [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]. Everything else about her character stems off controlling others.)

* A ''canonical'' example in ''{{Theatre/Heathers}}'' with Veronica and her SerialKiller boyfriend, J.D. Even after she gets sick of his shit and dumps him, the mind games and sexual tension continues.

** Furuta loves to tease and mock Kaneki/Sasaki and calls him "my dear Kaneki" all while trying to kill him and [[EyeScream gouge his eyes out]].



** In chapter 46 Ferid drives up in his car and holds out his hand to Mika and Yuu, with a flirtatious look and teasingly saying "I heard you two were being attacked by a dangerous vampire so I came to your rescue. Come take a ride with me. I'll save you." He plays mind games with Yuu and Mika throughout the chapter, and when Yuu turns into a demon to attack Ferid for [[spoiler: showing them Akane's head]] Ferid tells Mika he's "worried for the poor guy (Yuu)" because he's says Yuu could turn into a full demon. He states he has an antidote to cure Yuu and tells Shinoa "Let us go rescue dear Yuu." Mika is adamant to keep Ferid from getting near Yuu and says "I won't let you have your way with him!" Ferid smiles and says he just wants to help Yuu. Mika says he's not going to let Ferid touch him. Crowley engages Mika in a fight while Ferid states cheerfully "Now precious Yuu is all mine." Ferid approaches Yuu and blushes saying "Wow! [[ShesAllGrownUp Haven't you grown ]] into the [[{{Bishonen}} cute one!]]! Your demon is on the verge of rampage yet you still have [[WhatBeautifulEyes such clear and beautiful eyes.]] No wonder you are the extra special guinea pig." He then lifts Yuu's face by his chin and gets close saying "Perhaps before I heal you I'll take a little sip of your blood." Yuu asks if there's something in it for him if he allows Ferid to suck his blood. Ferid says he got the curse supresent from Guren and it's the same one he takes. Yuu demands Ferid tells him everything he knows and Ferid smiles, covers Yuu's mouth with his hand, says "Oh, you ''are'' cute" and bites him while gripping his shoulder and hand. He then "cures" Yuu of his advancing demon curse while holding him close and leaning his head on Yuu's shoulder.
