She convinced him that she had StockholmSyndrome for long enough that he taught her to fight... until she thought she'd learned enough, at which point she killed him.

* A downplayed example in ''Fanfic/ComesACrossover''. [[WesternAnimation/EquestriaGirls Flash Sentry]] is kidnapped by [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Lilth,]] [[Franchise/{{Disgaea}} Etna, and Flonne]] including having his car commandeered by them. When he send an S.O.S to Sunset she send [[VideoGame/MegaManX X]] and [[Manga/OnePiece Brook]] to save him, but when they arrive they see he is having a good time with the three of them with his electric guitar. Despite having fun however, and admitting Lilith is good on the bass, he still holds a grudge against the three of them for kidnapping him and is only not rescued at that moment because he is in no immediate danger.

* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ion_Perdicaris#Perdicaris_incident Perdicaris incident]], in which an American man and his son were kidnapped by the Moroccan bandit Mulai Ahmed er Raisuni. Perdicaris came to admire Raisuni, saying, "I go so far as to say that I do not regret having been his prisoner for some time... He is not a bandit, not a murderer, but a patriot forced into acts of brigandage to save his native soil and his people from the yoke of tyranny."

* ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'': After Cordelia gets back to Beta after being captured by the Barrayarans during the Betan/Barrayaran war, her commanding officers and family believe that her feelings for Aral Vorkosigan are the result of Stockholm Syndrome, an assumption helped along considerably by the fact that some groups of Barrayaran soldiers did make a practice of raping and torturing their [=POWs=]. Since Cordelia can't provide an honest account of all of her experiences while she was a prisoner without revealing a whole lot of messy Barrayaran political secrets that would cause whole worlds of trouble - and thus can't convincingly explain the assortment of injuries she came back with, which her fellow Betans assume came from torture - it's not hard to understand their reasoning.

** Not to mention that Meg relationship with her family is downright abusive, and she will put up with it to mantain the status quo, as the Seahorse Seashell Party episode makes rather obvious.
