* Nagi does this several times in ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'', mostly to Hayate. Hinagiku is another favorite target for this, sometimes even when Hayate is also present. Most often it's someone hiding behind one of them for protection but the clingy-ness is definitely there.

* Honey Rider clings to JamesBond's arm when riding the elevator to Film/DrNo's lair. In a variation, Bond readily admits that he's as scared as she is (given that it's the first Bond film, he's not as used to the idea of [[NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine villains inviting him to dinner]] instead of [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim just shooting him]], so is feeling rather creeped out).

* VideoGame/LoveAndWar has an example, played for laughs. When Ryan and Lavie have to explore Blackwater Park, Lavie hears animal sounds, probably those of a hooting owl, and is instantly scared. She grabs hold of Ryan's arm, but he is far from pleased:
-->'''Lavie:''' ''(almost in tears)'' "But I'm scared!"
-->'''Ryan:''' ''(deadpan)'' "I know, but how is twisting my arm off going to help?"
