* In [[TheFilmOfTheBook the film of]] ''MarleyAndMe'', John is on a walk with his friend Sebastian. When Sebastian sees an attractive girl at an ice cream stand, he takes the stroller with baby Patrick away from John and walks toward her, with John good-naturedly protesting, "Come on, that's my son!"

* A rather weird example from ''RanmaOneHalf'' has a girl-Ranma that had been [[FountainOfYouth turned into a little kid]] suddenly being picked up and taken to an amusement park by Kuno, who, thinking that the toddler Ranma was the ''real'' Pigtailed Girl's baby sister, picked her up so he could look after her until her "older sister" (whom he is [[MadLove obsessively attracted]] to) arrived and thus have a reason to get close to her.

* ''SeventhHeaven'': Matt and Simon take the twins to the promenade, thinking they'll attract family-oriented girls with good values. Unfortunately, the only girl who talks to them chastises them for having the babies out so late in the cold.

* Eric from ''BoyMeetsWorld'' combined this with additional lies about being in law school and the Secret Service with reckless abandon. * When Mark has to watch Nora unexpectedly in an episode of ''InPlainSight'', he takes her to a "steak house" and women at the bar start making eyes at them. Though she is his kid, it's still a blatant use of this trope.

* In one episode of ''HowIMetYourMother'', Barney and Ted decide to become parents together. Then Barney mysteriously produces a baby ([[spoiler:he was just babysitting his niece]]). It takes about ten seconds after walking outside for some two dozen women to swarm around them.

* This happened in the ''JohnnyBravo'' episode "Lil' Johnny", when Johnny tries to pick up babes with a baby he agreed to watch over. This included dressing the baby in his trademark shirt and hair.

Misuse. It's "Genre Savvy", not just "Savvy".
GenreSavvy men will realize this and go to extra efforts to gain the children's affection and approval. Cunning GenreSavvy men might even try to engineer the situation by borrowing a niece, nephew, or cousin to trigger this response. Like all [[ASimplePlan simple plans]], it rarely works as smoothly as he hoped. Occasionally, a GenreSavvy child will come along who realizes the extortion potential, and torments the men accordingly. Sometimes then the man who sees through the manipulation and stands up to the child ends up getting the relationship points (since he showed he can be a disciplinarian).

[[AC:Literature]] * ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' Many women are impressed by Jerin's gentle yet firm manner of dealing with young children. Subverted in that it is ''women'' who intentionally invoke this to [[spoiler: get their reluctant sister to agree to marry Jerrin. They engineer a situation where she accidentally watches him playing with her younger sisters. While she is impressed, she doesn't change her mind because of it.]]

-->"''There's something about a man with a baby that's so sexy and s-o-o-o-o hard to resist.''" -->''FullHouse'' The idea that babies (or small children) put women in a Romantic Mood. (Not their own babies of course, but somebody else's). Particularly true for an OldMaid, as it warns them that their biological clock is ticking. After all, it's a given that everyone thinks babies are cute. Complete strangers stop and tell you, "What a cute baby!"
