* Millay of ''SuikodenIV'' fled Middleport when Schtoltenheim Reinbach II planned to make her marry his [[UpperClassTwit son]]. Her parents approved the marriage; ''she'' didn't, so she made a break for it. [[HeroicMime Your hero]] happens to meet her just as Reinbach II's goons track her down -- ironically enough, this is also the first time [[TheFightingNarcissist Schtoltenheim Reinbach]] ''[[TheFightingNarcissist III]]'' meets her, and he's blissfully unaware of the situation until ''after'' they've [[BigDamnHeroes helped her out]]. Then he's completely ''horrified'' at his father's terrible deeds, and apologizes profusely.

** By the end of the manga, Ryoga Hibiki is something of an unwilling version of this trope- he wants to be around his newfound (and borderline RelationshipSue) love interest and [[AccidentalMarriage accidental]] fiancee Akari, but his lack of direction means he can rarely even find her.
* In ''Anime/RomeoXJuliet'' Romeo is arranged to marry Hermionine, he falls for Juliet and they run away together. Unfortunately for them, they get caught.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'': Astrid ran away from home rather than be forced into a marriage. Since the man her parents wanted her to marry is Senator Lekain, who is eventually revealed as a genocidal monster, this is entirely understandable on her part.

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia'', Prince Michalis of Macedon tried to arrange a marriage between himself and the WhiteMagicianGirl Lena, a young woman whose foster father is of a ''very'' noble house. Lena greatly disliked the power-hungry EvilPrince, however; she turned Michalis' proposal down and ran the HELL away from him.

* In ''Animation/TheFrogPrincess'' by Creator/EDBaker, Emma runs to the swamp when she finds out she's to be engaged to an empty-headed and vain prince. She didn't intend to stay for long, but she ended up turning into a frog. Yeah, another fairy-tale universe.
* Subverted in ''{{Shabanu}}'', where the title character tries to run away from an arranged marriage to someone old enough to be her ''[[{{Squick}} grandfather]]''. [[spoiler: She gets ([[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown severely]]?) beaten up by her parents, and marries the guy anyway.]]

** ''Literature/BathTangle'' actually has a subversion, of sorts: the hero's unwanted fiancée runs away from ''him''...and then is persuaded to go back by the heroine, who argues that a loveless but comfortable marriage to the hero (who isn't nearly as horrible as he seems) is much better than a hasty elopement with the hero's poorer nephew.

* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': No one's a hundred percent clear on the events surrounding Rhaegar and Lyanna, but one version - the nicest version - is that she abandoned her betrothal to Robert to be with him.
