* 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.

to:

* ''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.

* Freya Wion of ''Anime/MacrossDelta'' ran away from her arranged marriage so she could join the auditions for Walkure. To complicate things, she happens to be a Windamerian whose people ended up declaring war of independence later on against N.U.N.S. and Walkure.

* This is part of Kyrie's back story in ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''. She ran away from the ArrangedMarriage to marry the protagonist Battler's father, Rudolf. It should be noted that she'd been in a relationship with Rudolf for awhile, even when he was married to Battler's mother, Asumu ([[spoiler:Or not]]). Unfortunately, [[spoiler:this resulted in her younger sister Kasumi being forced to marry the fiance. Having already promised herself to someone else, she's pretty miffed about that. And considering how Kyrie dies on Rokkenjima, the grudge is transferred to Kyrie's daughter, Ange.]]

* Part of Kanna's (Gran-Gran's) BackStory on ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. She ran away (literally to the other side of the Planet, from the North pole to the South) not because she hated her intended husband, but because she didn't want to marry him just because "tradition" said she had to. She actually held onto the necklace he made her and passed it down as a family heirloom to her granddaughter. Her former fiance recognizes it ''decades'' later and it turns out he was deeply in love with her. He never knew where she went and so had always considered her TheLostLenore. [[DecemberDecemberRomance When he finds out she's alive and well on the other side of the planet, he goes to find her, ASKS her to marry him, and she agrees!]]
