* Used in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ElenaOfAvalor'' when Gabe is [[DemonicPossession possessed by the spirit of a vain, aggressive general]], thanks to a [[ArtifactOfDoom cursed sword]]. With the general in charge, he plucks a rose, places it between his teeth, before tossing it with precision to land behind Elena's ear. The princess is not impressed, and tosses it back to him, where it lands on the ground.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Maribato}} Maribato!]]'' has Yumi Fukuzawa, Sachiko Ogasawara, Youko Mizuno and Touko Matsudaira (Yes, the ''Chinensis'' family from ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru''), who use roses as projectiles. Special mention to Youko, who not only is able to throw up to three roses and the same time and unleash a rain of roses raining from above, but also fights with a rose whip; Curious enough, in Touko's case, the rose throwing is her only attack not related to [[ThisIsADrIll drills.]]

* In ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'', this is Rosetta's motif as it's in her name, skill and charge attack names, and she has several roses in her dress and hair. It becomes even more blatant when she transforms into Rose Queen.

* Alyssa of ''{{Gungnir}}'' wields a giant lance with a rose motif. Since she's a shy noblewoman rather than TheVamp, the roses are {{p|rincessesPreferPink}}ink.

** In the original as well, Cloud shows the rose to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Terra]], who is, at the time, heavily unsure of herself, and explains Firion's dream to her. This causes a powerful inspiration to ignite within Terra, who basically replies, "hey, that sounds awesome, let's not just fill the world with roses, but with lots of other flowers as well!" This helps give her the courage to beat the crap out of [[MonsterClown Kefka]] and save [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII Onion Knight]].

* In Creator/DanAbnett's Literature/GauntsGhosts novel ''Necropolis'': When the noble houses of Vervunhive place Ibram Gaunt in charge of the defense of their city, they give him a symbolic rose from House Chass's gardens. House Chass practices the art of cybernetic gardening, though, each plant a carefully-designed metallic object, so this is a ''steel rose''. It [[spoiler: saves his life when he's shot with a bolt gun point-blank (because it exploded ''next'' to him rather than ''inside'' him]] in what [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane might, or might not, have been]] DivineIntervention.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': President Snow is anything ''but'' {{Bishonen}}, but he has a greenhouse filled with roses, leaves behind roses as a warning to his enemies, and has done something to himself so that he permanently smells of roses--as well as of blood. [[spoiler: The blood smell's actually natural: he tried to poison both himself and a rival, and since he didn't take the antidote quickly enough, he's got permanent mouth ulcers. The rose smell is intended to cover it up.]]

* In ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII Firion]] carries with him a "wild rose" which symbolizes the Wild Rose Rebellion from his game, and his dream. Later on it turns out that the rose was [[spoiler: created by [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Golbez]] to inspire him]]. Funnily enough, the rose changes hands quite a bit. Halfway through [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Warrior Of Light]]'s stories, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]] steals it, Cloud takes it back, and it eventually gets back to Firion.

* The Kentucky Derby, perhaps the most famous [[UsefulNotes/HorseRacing horse race]] in the world, is known as the "Run for the Roses", because the winner is draped with a blanket of roses in the winner's circle.
