Added DiffLines:

->'''Bob Dole''': [[UsefulNotes/BillClinton Bill]], I thought perhaps it would be best if we could talk in private. It would be appreciated.
->'''UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton''': This ''is'' private.
->'''Dole''': Now, I would hope that the leader of the opposition and the President couldó
->'''Clinton''': I happen to be the '''Co'''-President of the United States.

* At the end of ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9901020/1/A-Warm-Blizzard A Warm Blizzard]]'', a ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' fanfic, [[spoiler:[[AntiHero Prince]] [[HeelFaceTurn Hans]]]] is revealed to be a [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinetic]] as a counterbalance [[AnIcePerson to Elsa's cryokinesis]], and [[spoiler:uses it to thaw her out after a witch cast a spell on her. When he was a child, a [[{{Depowered}} magical binding was put in place]] [[PowerNullifier so he won't be able to use his fire powers]], but a magical scissor removes this biding. He and Elsa later become Arendelle's magical RulingCouple.]]

** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Sword of Seals]]'', if [[WarriorPrince Prince Roy of Pherae]] marries [[LadyOfBlackMagic Princess Lilina of Ostia]], they unite their territories. Even more, they also manage to reunite the ''other'' territories of Lycia into the Lycian Kingdom and rule wisely over them, with ''Lilina'' being implied to have the biggest share of leadership (Ostia is the most powerful realm in Lycia and she ''also'' creates the Lycian League in her solo ending]]).

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' portrays King Renly Baratheon and Queen Margaery Tyrell (who got very little focus in the books) as an example of this. Margaery is Renly's [[TheBeard Beard]], since his real lover is her brother Loras (they could even be considered to be a threesome version of this with Loras and actress Natalie Dormer has described them as a trinity as well as Renly being seen TalkingInBed with Loras about matters of state), but she's also his ambitious LadyMacbeth (jointly with Loras--a Ruling OneTrueThreesome, perhaps?), his [[TheGoodChancellor counsellor]], his [[SlaveToPR spin doctor]] and his guarantee of support from her wealthy and powerful family. (Renly himself is rightfully the SpareToTheThrone, and needs all the legitimate power he can get). When we see them holding an informal court, they're sitting in two equally prominent thrones. Renly even incorporates the Tyrell colours into his sigil. [[spoiler:We never get to see what they would have been like as true rulers due to Renly's death, but as of season three Margaery is busy getting her hooks into her new fiancée, King Joffrey. When Joffrey himself is killed via poisoning, she's married off to his younger brother Tommen, and they are on the road to being something close to this]].

* ''Literature/TenSixtySixAndAllThat'' plays with this by combining William III and Mary II as "the memorable Dutch Williamanmary," though it also portrays this CompositeCharacter as a non-anthropomorphic orange.

* In ''Literature/TheDeathGateCycle'', King Stephen and Queen Anne are like this, their marriage having unified the previously separate kingdoms of Volkaran and Ulyndia. Officially it's a political marriage that barely holds together, where both parties hate each other and scheme to have the other assassinated so they could take sole control. In actuality, Stephen and Anne are very much HappilyMarried and carry out the charade in order to better play the various court factions off one another.
