** Russia/Lithuania is often portrayed as this in fanfic, with Lithuania growing fond of Russia after years of being forced to stay with him (and most likely physically and/or mentally abused in the process). Also happens in Russia/Latvia, Russia/Prussia aka EastGermany and more than one AU Russia/America or Russia/Canada fanwork. Estonia and Russia's sisters seems to be mostly free due to his lack of screentime and the girls's familiar bonds to Russia, but it can be seen from time to time.

** This has been speculated about other long-term kidnap victims--[[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Stayner Steven Stayner]], [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Smart Elizabeth Smart]], [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_J._Devlin Shawn Hornbeck]], etc. [[note]] There's also just as much speculation that they cooperated with their abductors so that they wouldn't be killed, something explicitly stated by Smart and Devlin. And Stayner actively sabotaged every other kidnapping his abductor attempted in order to spare other children his fate, even returning the one child that he did snatch, something he would have never done had he developed the syndrome.

* Played for laughs in an episode of {{MASH}}, as Klinger willingly lets himself be taken as a hostage in place of Winchester [[PityTheKidnapper whom the kidnapper was all too happy to let go]]. The reason is that the hostage-taker is trying to get back home... to Ohio. By the end, Klinger has to prop the wounded man up to try and keep the attempt going.

** It's also been speculated about the female half of many [[OutlawCouple Outlaw Couples]]. People have been quite shocked at situations where the ''wife'' is the domineering one, or to find that both parties are equally depraved.

Added DiffLines:

* A mild version on ''Series/{{ER}}'', when Carol is taken hostage during a convenience store robbery. As one of the gunmen rants about having killed a man, she tells him that she knows how he feels, having done the same thing a few weeks earlier (she gave a patient the wrong blood) and successfully talks him out of killing another hostage, even placing herself in between the two, indicating that she knows he won't shoot her. When he takes her with him as a HumanShield, he acquiesces to her request that he release her once he makes his escape. When they're confronted by a cop, she screams at him not to run, knowing the police will shoot him. When they do exactly that, she goes into panic mode, frantically trying to resuscitate him and even comforting him. His last words are to ask if she's okay, indicating that he himself developed LimaSyndrome. While it might not be love, they clearly bonded and she's visibly torn up by his death.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Videogame/Destiny2'', Ashir Mir is a Guardian Warlock who was infected and partially assimilated by the alien MechanicalLifeforms known as the Vex. While he thoroughly hates and despises the Vex for what they did, as he studies them and [[BodyHorror feels the slow transformation of his body and blood by the Vex]], he admits a "craven admiration" for something so [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien much more incredibly advanced than him,]] and whatever mysterious designs they have on the world around them.
