* Music/DieTotenHosen "Sekt oder Selters". Whereas it's somewhat disputable that the female was ''actively'' involved (could also be the usual irresponsibility of the male part), the rest of the trope is played straight as hell. ([[SarcasmMode The worst thing:]] no more binge drinking with his buddies.)

* In the manga version of ''Manga/KareKano'', [[spoiler: Souichiro Arima's birth mother Ryouko does this to squeeze child support money out of his father, Reiji, because she knows Reiji is the son of a rich doctor. (What she doesn't know is that Reiji is illegitimate, much younger than his father's legitimate children, and actively hated by all of them except Souji, the eldest). She leaves Soichiro to ''[[OffingTheOffspring die]]'' soon after finding this out, but Soichiro is saved by the arrival of his father and ends up being adopted soon after by his aunt and uncle.]]
* In the anime version of ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'', [[spoiler: Kotonoha is convinced Sekai did this to Makoto and cuts open Sekai's belly to "make sure" after [[AxCrazy murdering]] [[MurderTheHypotenuse her]].]] Is this what ''actually'' happened? [[spoiler: The show's ambiguous on it: Sekai has a fairly strong claim in regards to pregnancy itself, but it's left up in the air whether she deliberately pulled the trope, or this is just TeenPregnancy without the baby trap itself behind. (Some fans speculate that Sekai might be under the effects of psychological pregnancy, too)]].

* In ''Film/DropDeadFred'', the reason Lizzie's mother was so cruel to her was because she used this trick to try and save her marriage. When it didn't work, she placed the blame squarely on her daughter's shoulders.

** In a separate episode, Bobby pranks Luanne by replacing her birth control with mints. The change was obvious, but Luanne, and Bobby's parents, tired of the pranking, convince Bobby that the birth control just stopped working, and she would immediately become pregnant, with him as the father, forcing him to "marry" her. But Hank and Peggy one up them and get Luanne back as well for her involvement by tricking her into thinking that Bill is actually a priest and she really is married to Bobby.

While it's usually made clear that this is a cheap, sneaky thing to do, rarely is it pointed out that it's actually a form of spouse and/or child abuse.

* In an early episode of ''Series/{{Bones}},'' this is what got the victim killed. She was sleeping with a foreign diplomat's husband, who showered her with gifts until he got bored with it. Her mother advised her that he'd do the right thing, so she attempted to reseduce him. When that didn't work, she went after his son instead.

* Subverted hilariously early in ''TenchiMuyo'', when Ryoko implies that her ship's egg is actually her and Tenchi's. Tenchi's family and even Sasami are actually happy for them (though obviously not Aeka), totally ignoring Tenchi's denials. The egg quickly hatches and is revealed to be the cabbit-like Ryo-Ohki, but some swear they still see a resemblance to Tenchi.
