* ''WillAndGrace'' had a storyline in which Jack and Will make-over a StraightGay named Barry into a FlamboyantGay (which they consider a "proper gay"). Both of them fall for Barry and end up fighting over him afterwards. The arc is called, of course, "[[NWordPrivileges Fagmalion]]."

* {{Vocaloid}} Rin's song "KOKORO" and [[SpearCounterpart Len's counterpart]] "KISEKI" tell the story of a robot that was made to for this purpose. However, the two [[spoiler: never technically meet face-to-face, as the robot only becomes conscious after centuries of isolation and disuse.]] Their love can just as easily be interpreted as platonic, and in some versions it's explicitly shown that the scientist [[ReplacementGoldfish based the robot off his late daughter.]] While it's sort of an odd, {{Zigzagged}} example, "KOKORO KISEKI" definitely fits the archetype of a PygmalionPlot.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/TheDarkness'', both the Darkness and Angelus users had the power to [[MookMaker create living beings to serve them]], and some of these were created with for romantic or sexual purposes - the Angelus introduced at the start of the series had a female concubine whom she loved very dearly. This was frequently used by many Darkness users since [[DeathBySex having sex with mortal women would lead to their deaths]], as their powers would then pass on to their offspring at cost of their own lives. Female Darklings are safe enough, but apparently they are very hard to create: Jackie tries to make one and botches many attempts, and he ends up needing outside help to successfully create the perfect woman. [[spoiler:Though it turns out that the Darkness entity deliberately designed them so their users could breed with them and create an EldritchAbomination free of any humanity. Oops.]]

** The New 52 changed this into a cover story to her being raped by Zeus.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'': Two con-men, Dimitri and Boris, style an orphan to pass for the Empress's long-lost granddaughter, and the younger, Dimitri, is smitten when he sees his creation succeed. [[spoiler:Unbeknownst to all of them, she really ''is'' Anastasia.]] Though, of course, he loved her all along.

* ''Theatre/MyFairLady'' and ''Theatre/{{Pygmalion}}'' of course. Including the X-rated ''Claiming of Misty Beethoven'' and the porno musical remake. Ironically, Shaw intended ''Pygmalion'' to be [[PygmalionSnapBack the opposite of this trope]]. In the original ending, Eliza walks out on Higgins and becomes an independent woman, subverting the audience's expectations of a fairy tale romance. However, the actors refused to play it that way, which angered Shaw, and [[ReCut he ended up writing an epilogue that married her off to Freddy]] just so that she didn't end up forever under the thumb of the middle-aged man who "made" her. [[DeathOfTheAuthor It didn't stick.]]

* ''{{Pulseman}}'' has Doc Yoshiyama create, then fall in love with, an artificial intelligence. He uploads himself into a computer so he could make love to the AI, in doing so creating Pulseman and going AxCrazy.
