* Inverted in ''TenchiMuyo'': Washu got seriously upgraded in the Harem pecking-order when Tenchi was asked to take care of his nephew for a while. While the kid manages to drive all the other girls to the point of exhaustion, Washu handles him like a virtuoso, and thus manages to impress on both the audience and Tenchi that she'd make a good mother for his child. Then she transforms into a grown woman and suggests it outright.

* 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.

* 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.

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).
