* In one science fiction short story, this caused an interstellar war. Upon FirstContact with an alien race (that looked like teddy bears), an astronaut decided to do this. Unfortunately, humans looked like a kind of animal on the alien race's home planet that had the habit of carrying off babies to eat them and the astronaut's motives were misconstrued.

When someone - [[AlwaysMale usually a male someone]] - decides to run for public office, one of the things he is expected to do during the campaign is kiss the babies of female potential voters. Somehow this will [[EvilDetectingBaby prove]] that he's not evil and can be trusted to run the [country/state/county/city/dog pound] properly; presumably if he ''was'' evil, he'd be unable to resist the urge to [[EatsBabies take a bite out of it]], or the baby would start [[EvilDetectingBaby crying loudly]].

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Mayor Bill Dewey does so very demonstratively in "Lars and the Cool Kids". His son Buck rather morosely claims that he never kisses ''him'' like that.

* A ''[[TheBeano The Bash Street Kids]]'' strip has the teacher tell the class that they will be electing a head boy by democratic vote. Plug references the trope saying that politicians get votes by kissing babies, so he goes to kiss some at a nursery. But because Plug's ugly, the babies scream and he gets thrown out without a kiss.
