** Comes in Hanako Ikezawa's route: After Hanako and Hisao have [[TheirFirstTime very awkward first-time sex]], he notices that she never ''explicitly'' consented. Between that and her [[ShrinkingViolet very meek personality]], he ''deeply'' worries that this trope is in effect, and believes that he actually raped her. However, it's a subversion, since it's entirely consensual and even premeditated on her part, as she explains later.
** The [[WhatCouldHaveBeen beta version]] was even worse. One of the sex scenes involved Hisao having sex with Hanako while she was drugged on medication. It instantly [[DeathBySex leads to a]] BadEnding where Hanako gets upset and Hisao accidentally trips backwards, breaking his neck.

Compare LeonineContract. AdaptationalConsent often overlaps, either clarifying one way or another whether a situation was truly consensual or doing the opposite and muddying a clear cut situation into being Questionable. See also the UsefulNotes page on UsefulNotes/{{Consent}}. This trope is not to be confused with the webcomic that's only one letter away, ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''.

The line between acceptable and unacceptable is often drawn at [[SafeSaneAndConsensual consent]]. However, consent can sometimes be questionable. How consensual was it, really?

* In ''Fanfic/ADifferentMedius'',[[spoiler:Azurai's marriage to Iratu]] is definitely an example, the former making a sarcastic remark, and the latter thinking [[spoiler:it's a proposal]]. [[spoiler:Iratu also jokingly "threatens" to eat Azurai if he doesn't go through with it. Azurai can't tell whether it's a joke, and doesn't care to find out.]]

It can also be a discussion about whether or not a certain character is able to consent to a certain thing in the first place. The character might be [[{{Lolicon}} too young]] or [[NaiveEverygirl inexperienced]], [[DrugsAreBad drugged down]], intellectually challenged, [[ButLiquorIsQuicker extremely drunk]], [[DudeShesLikeInAComa unconscious]], suffering from StockholmSyndrome or similar. It might also have to do with [[UnequalPairing the nature of the relationship]]: [[SleepingWithTheBoss a boss and an employee]], [[DoctorsOrders a health care worker and a patient]], [[ParentalIncest a parent and child (even if said child is fully grown)]], [[HotForStudent a teacher and student]], [[SexyPriest a clergyperson and a member of his/her congregation]], or something along those lines.

** The Feros colonists would also count. They signed a contract which contained a clause that would allow a company to experiment on them in exchange for medical treatment. Unlike the former quest, where no moral opinions on the matter are stated to be superior, the game strongly suggests that this is exploitation, using the colonists against their will.

If Shepard takes care of it, it turns out to actually be ''completely pointless''; the (Asari) executive responsible was lashing out at all aliens in a mad rage after her daughters were caught in the crossfire of the first game's finale, and will fix the loophole she exploited after realizing this.



** Mages apparently cannot be possessed unless they allow the demon/spirit to do it. However, said entity can force the issue by torturing the mage until they "consent". This is shown in gory detail in the Circle Tower when the Uldred abomination electrocutes a luckless mage until he agrees to become an abomination.

In Stone Prisoner and in Redcliff we see demons get "consent" by manipulating a ''child''.

Cut to the two of them in separate sleeping bags, with Finn pulling the bag up over him to cover himself and referring to the incident going in "the Vault", where he hides his more disturbing memories.
