* In an episode of ''Series/CSIMiami'', the team encounter an agency that does mock kidnappings with this sort of thing (although the participants are further down the path) in mind. Girl gets "kidnapped", boyfriend "pays ransom" and/or "rescues her", they have sex (because "rescue sex is the best kind of sex"). This being the CSIVerse, it doesn't quite work out like that...

* Lampshaded and played with, along with most other fairy tale tropes, in Creator/MercedesLackey's ''[[Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms The Fairy Godmother]]'', in which the titular heroine is obliged to rescue an imprisoned princess herself because if a man did it, the Tradition would force the princess to fall in love with him... and she's already married.
** And her husband is someone who she ''intentionally let herself be rescued by'' precisely to invoke this trope. (And no, she didn't know who would be the rescuer. Her father and her worked up the plan, and sent out a message to all nearby eligible princes, knowing she would fall in love with whomever succeeded.)
** The following book in the series features a chapter in which the princess thinks over the basic rules of the Tradition in search of a way to avoid falling in love with the Champion who saved her from the dragon (who isn't looking for a bride at the moment for a variety of reason, the most significant being that [[SamusIsAGirl Sir George's real name is Georgina]] - circumstances required her order to send in a female Champion).

*** If Kaze and a Female Avatar obtain an A support before Chapter 15 of ''Birthright'', he saves the two from falling down a huge cliff [[spoiler: (and if they ''don't'' have said A support, he pulls an HeroicSacrifice)]]. If they get an S support ''after'' that, it can be easily seen as this trope.
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'' and ''specially'' its remake, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'', Gray joins the mission to rescue Clair in hopes to help save her and score this with her (or at least, RescueSex). If both of them live to the end, they get married.

** This is actually portrayed very well in the various games: even in the few situations where Link ''is'' old enough to conceivably pursue a romance with Zelda, he's also far too intently focused on his duty instead of her. He never ignores her, or through ignorance or malice puts her in danger, but he's never shown even the slightest interest in a romantic relationship. In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', however, the initial reason you start your adventure is to go rescue [[DamselInDistress the mayor's daughter]] [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend who pretty clearly likes Link already]]. Link ''does'' meet Zelda and Midna, but he has almost no interaction with Zelda at all, nor do either he or Midna ever show romantic feelings for each other.

** Played for laughs in ''Oracle of Ages''. At one point, Link goes back in time to rescue the female Maku Tree sprout from a pair of Veran's moblins who went back in time to kill it. The ''tree sprout'' falls in love with Link and vows to marry him when she grows up. When Link returns to the present, the restored Maku Tree (previously quite professional) is still in love with him, is miffed that he made her wait for centuries, and declares that they are married.
