* Deconstructed in the ending of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey''. [[spoiler:After Mario rescues Princess Peach from Bowser, the defeated Bowser still tries to propose to her. Mario, alarmed at this, also tries to propose to her, and given his long history of rescuing her, it seems logical that she'll accept Mario's proposal. Unfortunately, their simultaneous proposals coupled with the stress of Peach's captivity angers her and causes her to reject both Bowser and Mario.]]

** [[BadassPrincess Rosella]] and [[DistressedDude Edgar]] in [[VideoGame/KingsQuestIVThePerilsOfRosella The fourth game]] and [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride seventh game]] [[ZigZaggingTrope bounce this trope around like a pinball]]. First, Lolotte is all set to execute Rosella, but her [[spoiler: adopted by kidnapping and transmogrified into]] ugly, green, hunchbacked son Edgar [[PleaseSpareHimMyLiege intervenes]] to keep her from doing so, by stating he has a crush on her. After Rosella completes Lolotte's tasks, the wicked fairy pills a nasty subversion where the evil queen will marry Rosella to Edgar, which leads to a NonStandardGameOver unless you stop her. But Edgar turns out to be GoodAllAlong, and smuggles Rosella the key to escape. Rosella ends up killing Lolotte to save Genesta, Genesta changes him [[spoiler: back into his ''true'' form]] as a [[SuddenlySuitableSuitor handsome Fairy prince]], and Edgar [[InvertedTrope inverts it]] by offering ''himself'' as the StandardHeroReward. Rosella has to turn him down because she needs to save her dad, and Edgar is saddened, but understands, and that's when the fourth game ends. But come the seventh game? Edgar has gotten kidnapped, brainwashed and transformed ''again'' and is working for his wicked aunt, believing he is the King of the Trolls. In his confused and morally compromised state, he inadvertently kidnaps Rosella (with Valanice jumping in behind before the portal shuts), transforms ''her'' into a troll, and tried to pull AndNowYouMustMarryMe. Rosella is less than amused, escapes, finds out what's ''really'' going on, goes back to save ''him,'' and reunites him with his parents. ''Wisely'', Edgar asks not for marriage, but a proper courtship, which she agrees to. Both ''VideoGame/TheSilverLining'' and the Telltale Games sequels state that TheyDo.

* This trope is implied to be the reason [[spoiler:Princess Genevieve's father allowed her to marry Derek the royal cobbler at the end of]] ''BarbieInTheTwelveDancingPrincesses''. It could be alternately interpreted as a GenderFlip, as the princess gets to marry the man she loves because of her heroism.

* Averted in the UK after WorldWarTwo. Peter Townsend was a true war hero - a [[AcePilot fighter ace]] and hero of the Battle of Britain. He was madly in love with Princess Margaret, and Margaret also loved him. But Queen Elizabeth (Margaret's mother, not the current Queen) prohibited Townsend from seeing Margaret anymore because he was a divorcee. It broke the hearts of them both. Townsend called Princess Margaret his only true love until his death.

* There was a WaltDisney short, ''The Brave Little Tailor'', where Mickey accidentally got the job of stopping the giant ("I killed seven with one blow!" was misheard to be about giants instead of flies), and he was offered the hand of the Princess Minnie. At least in this case, it was her idea.
