* In the 2006 anime adaptation of ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'', Kaori Misaka and Jun Kitagawa have this kind of relationship, with Kaori taking full advantage of Kitagawa's unrequited crush on her to use him as a HumanPackMule. Played for laughs in an early scene where Yuichi actually calls Kitagawa "The Servant Boy." Kitagawa angrily retorts that he's nobody's servant, only to have Kaori walk up just a few seconds later and shove a bunch of her stuff into his arms.

* The [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Shadows of Mexico]] setting for VampireTheRequiem shows a deconstruction of this trope in the relationship between the [[AlphaBitch Harpy]] Mariposa and her poor PR agent/childe Colibri. Mariposa often humiliates Colibri in front of Mexico's other vampires, treating her as little more than a punching bag, but she actually does care about her in private. This just makes Colibri even crazier!

* 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.

As the years go by and Haji grows up, their relationship becomes less this trope and more like friends. But then the fire happens and then it becomes a mostly bright LadyAndKnight pair.

* The relationship between ''{{Film/Maleficent}}'' and her servant Diaval is as much this as it is [[LadyandKnight Lady and Knight]] - since she certainly doesn't ''need'' his protecting. All the elements are there; her teasing but ultimately caring for him, his eye-rolling but maintaining UndyingLoyalty to her. The [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original script]] and novelization also implies some UST there, too.

* While he's not really her assistant, DefrostingIceQueen / MagnificentBastard Adelle [=DeWitt=] and {{Geek}}y MadScientist Topher Brink have this kind of relationship on ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}.'' Their relationship winds up seeming somewhat like a mother and son, though at first many fans thought it would turn romantic.

** In ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'', the pairing of Sister Sweden and Brother Finland is exactly this. The normally macho Finland bends over backwards - painfully literally - to oblige her whims.
** She uses it a lot in her non - ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'' work. Weedy feminised men in thrall to big strong women is a theme which recurs again and again in her work: she explicitly uses this trope in a series of works about an autocratic aristocratic lady who wields a rod, not necessarily of iron, over her male house-staff.

* In ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'', the bullied [[{{Adorkable}} Haruyuki]] sees his relationship with the school idol [[ActionGirlfriend Kuroyukihime]] this way. The problem is that Kuroyukihime ''wants'' it to be much more equal, but Haruyuki [[ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe can't imagine that she would honestly like him for who he is]].

Despite this, the woman usually ''does'' genuinely care about the boy, she just shows it in a very strange way. She's often a grown-up {{Tsundere}} or a DefrostingIceQueen, and may act the way she does because she has trouble showing affection. HypocriticalHeartwarming is likely to occur at some point.

* [[https://archiveofourown.org/works/3538292/chapters/7786868 This]] ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' fic features a [[HoYay same-sex variation]] between [[TroubledButCute Percy]] and [[AntiVillain Luke]]. Initially, it's TeethClenchedTeamwork, but the more time they spend together, the more trust Luke puts in Percy, and the more they actually care for each other under the sarcasm.
