* ''BaldursGate II'' has a short encounter with a young couple upstairs in an inn, where they say goodbye to each other due to pressures of family. However, the player character can encourage them to stick it to their families, stay true to their love and live life as they want to. If the character pays attention to dialogue from some [=NPCs=] later in the game, it turns out they weren't, in fact, just a RomeoAndJuliet, but a [[OutlawCouple Bonnie And Clyde]]. ...oops?

** It's also worth noting that prior to the above mentioned CurbStompBattle, the gang were such [[CombatPragmatist Combat Pragmatists]] that ran circles around the pitiful small-town cops for using not one, but ''two'' {{Game Breaker}}s: they stole [[MoreDakka Browning Automatic Rifles]] ([[FunWithAcronyms BARs for short]]), WorldWarOne holdovers with the barrels filed down for use in cars, and they had a habit of using only cars with [[SuperSpeed V8 engines in them that only required a five minute headstart to only be a memory]], compared to local police that had to [[AdamSmithHatesYourGuts buy their own handguns]] and drove equally simple cars; it was like pitting [[Series/TheAndyGriffithShow Andy Griffith]] against Rambo, plus some JurisdictionFriction for good measure. Given the [[MorallyBankruptBanker nature of the banks,]] they were initially considered to be rebels dealing out LaserGuidedKarma to [[AssholeVictim Asshole Victims]] until the cop-killing ruined that image, and they ''had'' to be ambushed by the posse because they were otherwise too much of a collective LightningBruiser to be taken down like any previous criminals.

* In ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' when Sylar and Elle become a couple and decide to use their powers to "take what we want". Noah Bennette even calls them "Bonnie and Clyde".
* ''Series/{{Homeland}}'' season two ends [[spoiler: by subverting this.

Instead, Carrie chooses to stay with the CIA so she can try to clear Brody's name for him.]]

* The song "Bonny und Clyde" by the german Punkband ''Die Toten Hosen'' directly references the infamous duo. It is also a love song in which the guy entices the girl to live a life like Bonny and Clyde.
