* Marika in ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}'' not only claims that she's Raku's fiancee but also that he agreed to it when they were younger. When we get a flashback not long after, it's obvious that she's making it up: The closest he got to agreeing to marry her was telling her that he likes girly girls with long hair, after which she grew out her hair and taught herself to speak in an archaic rich girl style instead of her country bumpkin accent. She did get her father to ask Raku's father to have them betrothed, but Raku himself was completely uninvolved in this decision and [[HopelessSuitor he never seriously considers going out with her or returning her feelings.]] Given the implications that she remembers more of what happened ten years ago than anyone else she seems to be hoping that he'll mistake her for the actual childhood marriage promise girl whose identity he can't clearly remember.

* Mizore Yukihiro from ''Manga/UQHolder'' declared Touta to be her husband when they first met. Unfortunately for her, she's the only one in his harem that he doesn't have any feelings for (as revealed when he accidentally took a truth potion).

* On ''TotalDrama'', [[LoonyFan Sierra]] is definitely the StalkerWithACrush type, first to [[DoggedNiceGuy Cody]] and later to [[BlackAndNerdy Cameron]] (mostly because Cody wasn't around and she kept hallucinating Cameron as him). Aside from putting Cody through hell and getting violently jealous/protective, she once tried to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] an AccidentalMarriage on him.

* Boa Hancock from ''Manga/OnePiece'' claims to be Luffy's soul mate, despite the fact [[IdiotHero Luffy]] has [[ObliviousToLove never shown]] [[CelibateHero even a passing romantic]] [[{{Asexuality}} interest in her]]. Elder Nyon mentioned that Hancock is under some sort of "love sickness," and whatever it is seems to be affecting her pretty badly. She interprets even the vaguest, most non-chalant show of affection or camaraderie from Luffy as a sign that he's her husband and that they are meant to be together for eternity. [[spoiler: It's also a hint of her DarkAndTroubledPast, which started [[BreakTheCutie breaking]] [[JerkAssWoobie Hancock]] when she was just 12 years old -- deep down, the powerful Amazon Queen is still an emotionally-stunted young girl... and Luffy was among the first non-females [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe who was kind to her]].]]



* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'': Sweden once said that Finland was [[HoYay "my w'fe"]], much to Finland's shock.
* ''LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts'': Shouko claims Yuuji is her husband and not even Yuuji is allowed say anything to deny it. Considering [[LonelyRichKid their]] [[OnlyFriend shared]] [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe past]], however, things aren't as easy as they seem.
* ''Manga/DeathNote'': Immediately after ''meeting'' Light, Misa declares herself to be "his girlfriend." Of course, this quickly becomes a very dark example, considering [[ManipulativeBastard who]] [[SerialKiller Light]] [[ItsAllAboutMe is]] and what becomes [[LoveMakesYouCrazy of]] [[LoveMartyr Misa]]. Lampshaded in the dub:
-->'''Misa:''' "Light-darling!"
-->'''Light''': "D-did you just call me ''darling''?!"

* In an episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', Shauna, the GirlOfTheWeek, introduces herself as the girlfriend of Dewford Gym Leader Brawly. Naturally, Brawly knows nothing of this when he shows up, but he takes it in stride.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Tatewaki Kuno, poor deluded fool, is this for any woman he has the slightest interest in.

* By average, there's at least one per UnwantedHarem series.



* Megumi "Nodame" Noda from ''NodameCantabile'', so much. She actually declares herself Chiaki's wife, and some people take her seriously, but they're actually just neighbors and members of the same orchestra, and [[{{Tsundere}} Chiaki]] mostly thinks of her as a pest outside of being a genius pianist. [[spoiler: She pretty much hangs around him so much that eventually he stops correcting people that she's not his girlfriend, and even starts ''referring'' to her as his girlfriend and eventually they get married.]]
