* Despite how it looks to some, ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' is an aversion. Belle agrees to stay with Beast to save her father, but she doesn't obey his orders, later decides her promise isn't worth how dangerous he is and tries to leave, and even after Beast saves her she isn't putting up with his behavior. It's only ''after'' he starts being nice and considerate, but like a person instead of her captor, that she warms up to him. Yet even then, she still misses her father, and leaves when Beast finally lets her.

Interestingly, Creator/EmmaWatson heard about the accusations around the time she was being scouted for the role of Belle for the LiveActionAdaptation, and by her own admission she looked into them thoroughly before signing on.

* ''FanFic/{{Fade}}'': Light [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this trope [[spoiler:while being held captive by L for being the Kira suspect. The UnresolvedSexualTension between them is not helping matters, and when Light is released and they begin their romantic relationship/partnership, it plays a large part in Light letting L's more... ''unfavourable'' actions slide]].

* A downplayed example in ''Fanfic/ComesACrossover''.

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."
