A ComedyTrope where one character claims that they are someone else's love interest, even though the two are not actually in love, dating, or (in extreme cases) even anything more than casual acquaintances. This character may exhibit traits of StalkerWithACrush, although they will deny that they are any such thing. They will also become a GreenEyedMonster if they see their "boyfriend/girlfriend" anywhere near another boy/girl, [[FacePalm even though they have no legitimate claim to the person.]] For maximum comedy, the object of their "love" may find themself dragged out on a date against their will.

* 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.

* Momiji Oouka from ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' was introduced telling to herself that she ''will'' marry Heiji Hattori. The 21th movie is supposed to focus on her, Heiji and Kazuha's potential LoveTriangle, [[spoiler: and according to the trailer, it looks like she made a ChildhoodMarriagePromise with him years ago.]]

* Lum in ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' may be the most famous example: when Ataru [[ItMakesSenseInContext saved the world from an alien invasion by beating her in a game of tag]] and [[AccidentalProposal shouted he could now marry (his then-girlfriend Shinobu, but he didn't say that) Lum decided he wanted to marry]] ''[[AccidentalProposal her]]'', and started acting as a very jealous wife.

* In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Maz Kanata refers to Chewbacca as her 'boyfriend' (albeit not entirely seriously.) What Chewie thinks about the situation remains a mystery as he's preoccupied elsewhere, fixing the ''Millenium Falcon'' at the time.

* 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''?!"

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Tatewaki Kuno, poor deluded fool, is this for any woman he has the slightest interest in.
