* Spoofed in a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' parody of a ''Lifetime'' movie, ''To Love, Honor and Stalk: the Gillian Woodward Story'', in which Creator/AmyPohler played a woman whose sense of personal space was continually being invaded by...her husband, played by guest star Senator John [=McCain=]. Him doing things like attempting to hug her, or offering to loofah her back, were presented as the horrifying attentions of a creepy stalker, and despite Gillian going to the police and taking her husband to court, the justice system kept pointing out that if she were still married to her husband, and not getting a divorce or separation, then it wasn't actually a crime for him to hug her. At the end, Poehler appears as herself with "the real Gillian Woodward" (Rachel Dratch) who's rather bemused by the whole thing and says that it all began when she mentioned to someone in her exercise class that she used to find it mildly annoying when her husband stood too close to her:

** Snape isn't quite as bad about this in the books, but his standard "interrogating a pupil" technique seems to be "get right in their personal space".
*** Snape does this deliberately, however, as he is attempting to make students as unnerved as possible so it is easy to [[spoiler:read their minds]].

* Christine Rhoades from ''Literature/SpectralShadows'' can be this sometimes...like when she pounces the shy, geeky squirrel girl Kacey. Given that Kacey has a lot of her squirrel traits intact, so this doesn't go over well.

** Janeway of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' is also rather touchy-feely with her crew--hugging them, hand on the shoulder, etc.--although this is more likely an extension of her role as TeamMom than anything else. This was also one of the many ways in which Seven of Nine had no sense of social etiquette after being raised by the Borg.

** The Cutie Mark Crusaders in "One Bad Apple". Enthusiastic to meet Babs Seed, the trio rushes to greet her as soon as she steps off the train. The camera moves to Babs's point-of-view as Apple Bloom introduces herself and her friends while standing much too close. Then pans to Sweetie Belle, who's standing much closer, and finally to Scootaloo, who's standing ''even closer''.
*** The upper part of Scootaloo's face takes up about 90% of the frame in the last shot.
*** Later, at the Crusaders' clubhouse, there's a moment where Scootaloo actually rubs her flank against Babs's, with the latter looking noticeably uncomfortable.
** In "Rainbow Rocks" the Dazzlings stroke seemingly everyone in the cafeteria during "Let's Have a Battle".

** In "Flutter Brutter", Fluttershy's brother Zephyr Breeze is shown to have little respect for boundaries. He frequently gives Fluttershy an AffectionateGestureToTheHead, hugs both his parents without prompting, and even tries to get touchy-feely with Rainbow Dash, who couldn't care less for his advances and frequently has to push him away.

* In ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'', [[RobotGirl Cameron]] tends to stand ''way'' too close to some people (likely to make it easier to kill them if she needs to) and also tends to stare for prolonged periods when she's considering the threat someone else represents to her or John Connor.
