* A literal (but not precisely fulfilling the trope) and very tragic example comes from Creator/AugustStrindberg's play ''Theatre/MissJulie''. It's about class and lust and power and people end up dead.
** Some productions modernize the play a little (its from 1888) by making the play with themes of racism; for instance in the 2012 production ''Mies Julie'' which is set in post-Apartheid South Africa.

** Creator/{{Clamp}} also have a male example in ''LegalDrug'' with Kakei and his store workers Rikuo and Kazahaya, whom he loves to make squirm and whom he sends on shady missions to retrieve supernatural objects that he intentionally withholds important information on (in one case: that Kazahaya is going to ''drown''). The mirroring of dynamic in ''XxxHolic'' is ''very'' apparent.

* Ekaterina and Kukrachyov, the pilots of Valspinner from ''ShinkonGattaiGodannar'', which actually used the combination command "Slave On". It even became a plot point of how submissive and "unmanly" Kukrachyov is when [[spoiler:the male pilots one after the other flip out from the virus]]. Just to drive the point home, Shadow, one of America's lesbian pilots, [[spoiler:is the only girl affected by it]] because she's the "[[{{Bifauxnen}} manly]]" one of the two girls

* Yuuko and Watanuki in ''XxxHolic'' (see page image). From making him get her expensive and rare types of alcohol to having him follow her around carrying her stuff while she ''slices a woman's computer clean in half'' without scratching the table. Yes, with a baseball bat. As employers go, Yuuko is pretty... [[BunnyEarsLawyer unique]]. Watanuki considers himself to be her slave, but she cares far more about his well-being than is initially obvious.[[spoiler: And it turns out, as the audience learns in a very heart-rending way about 3/4 through the series, the feeling is mutual]]

* Now, while Ren has [[TheOjou three separate masters]] in ''TheyAreMyNobleMasters'', it’s invoked by both [[LovableSexManiac Shinra]] & [[OlderThanTheyLook Miyu]]. Both are older than he is. Both [[TheTease tease]] him mercilessly. Neither one have any issue invoking an AccidentalPervert scenario upon him. And for the icing, he has {{UST}} with both sisters, involving his [[ChivalrousPervert wandering hands]] with Miyu and Shinra’s various come-ons that lead nowhere. [[spoiler:Well, that is until the GrandFinale where [[SpitTrailKiss Shinra rams her tongue]] [[BigDamnKiss down Ren’s throat.]]]]

* ''Manga/MedakaBox'': Medaka often drags childhood friend Zenkichi along for whatever quirky misadventure that she decides to undertake, and he tends to act like something of a closet {{Tsundere}} concerning it. It [[SatelliteCharacter goes]] [[BeleagueredAssistant far]] [[ButtMonkey enough]] that Fandom pegs Zenkichi as her personal boy toy, [[ShipTease affectionately]] ([[MemeticSexGoddess and more]]) or [[RonTheDeathEater otherwise]].

* ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' {{Fanon}} often portrays [[DarkActionGirl Adiane]] and [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Viral]] as an example of this trope, mostly based on Viral's stoic acceptance of Adiane's abuse for letting her lover be killed by Team Gurren.

* In an early episode of the ''{{Trigun}}'' anime, badass gunslinger Vash the Stampede (who ''really'' doesn't know how to deal with women) falls immediately into such a relationship, PlayedForLaughs, with a beautiful female engineer who arrives to fix the town's power plant.
* In ''SetoNoHanayome'', Lunar attempts to force Nagasumi into one of these relationships despite (or rather, because of) his engagement to Sun.
* The relationship between [[spoiler: Haji and Saya]] began this way in ''Anime/BloodPlus'', with [[spoiler: Haji]] as a surly cute boy and [[spoiler: Saya]] as a [[SpoiledSweet well intentioned but tyrannical]] teenager. After finding out the reason for [[spoiler: Haji's antipathy--he was sold as a slave to her guardian, Joel--Saya]] becomes friendlier and their relationship improves.
