** ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'' revolves around this trope, as [[spoiler: [[BitchInSheepsClothing Elektra]] [[ThickerThanWater King]]]] was held hostage by [[spoiler: [[DragonInChief Renard]]]] and 007 correctly assumes by slight pieces of evidence, that something just isn't right with [[spoiler: his protege]].

It also turns out that it's reciprocated through LimaSyndrome, with the former hostage emotionally manipulating the hostage taker out of spite.

* In the penultimate chapter of ''[[GroupOfWeirdos Group of Weirdos: Ocarina of Time]]'', Gate reveals that he's started to bond with Ganondorf. Of course, Gate's a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, so that might not be true.

** This is a "foundation" for some Japan/Taiwan, Japan/China, Japan/Hong Kong, China/Taiwan, China/Hong Kong and Japan/Thailand DarkerAndEdgier fanwork, specially in the times of ImperialJapan or [[ImperialChina Imperial]]/RedChina. The aggressor/BastardBoyfriend controls, abuses (in many different ways, but preferably sexual), manipulates, etc. his "captive" of either gender, breaking them mentally and emotionally and making them their love/sex slaves. That is, when the "captive" isn't shown as being head-over-heels in love with the aggressor since the beginning -- ''specially'' common in Japan/Taiwan works, where she's openly crushing on ''ImperialJapan'', who is portrayed as a RelationshipSue KnightInShiningArmor for her. Japan/Korea works are most likely excepted since Japan is almost always shown as a monster to Korea ''right from the start'', and considering the Japanese occupation from Korea... huh.

* In BDSM culture there's a mental state called "subspace". Basically, subspace is a temporary state of Stockholm Syndrome where the submissive partner is extremely susceptible to any suggestion on the part of the dominant partner.
** Of course, this version is a deliberate, predetermined goal between two consenting adults rather than a response to being kidnapped or imprisoned.

** Arguably, [[TheEmpath Will]] and [[TheCorrupter Hannibal's]] series-long slow-burn romance altogether, what with Hannibal being a manipulative serial killer and all.
