* Toyed with in ''TheElenium''. After saving the Queen from a deadly curse, Sparhawk ends up marrying said Queen. His accidental marriage proposal in the process of her recovery was simply a means to an end on her part, as she had [[MayDecemberRomance been in love with him ever since she was an 8 year old girl and he was her bodyguard.]]

* ''LittleKingsStory'' sees King Corobo rewarded with many princesses after completing certain tasks - all of whom ''instantly'' marry him. Near the end of the game [[spoiler: he's served seven divorce papers and has to stick with just one true love. Who is then ''eaten by a giant rat'' while the world ends in something of a GainaxEnding. The events are usually interpreted to be just a dream of the real Corobo and the real world counterparts of the "princesses" are not royalty anyway.]]

* ''Great Greed'' basically plays this straight during the ending, with one exception. The King will ask you if you want to marry one of his daughters. If you agree, he'll ask you to talk to the one you want to marry. However, you don't actually have to pick one of the princesses - with enough persistence, you can actually marry anyone in the room. In addition to the princesses, this includes the elderly (female) court wizard, two male bureaucrats, the Queen, and ''even the King himself!''
