** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': While it's not strictly part of canon, [[https://vimeo.com/162976437 this commercial]] portrays Quicksilver as a romantic suitor when he tries to woo a young woman with his [[PowerPerversionPotential super-speed]]. Since this ad was approved by the producers, we can infer that it's part of his personality to court a lady with roses and candlelight.

* ''HappyDays'': %%* ''Series/HappyDays'': The Fonz.



* Neal Caffrey of ''Series/WhiteCollar''.
* Tony [=DiNozzo=] of ''Series/{{NCIS}}''. At least, that's what he tells everyone. As a crime drama,the only times we get to see him use the skill is when it blows up in his face comedicly. (And one VERY serious time)
* Eric Matthews of BoyMeetsWorld is this at first and remains so later on, despite becoming a little bit...eccentric. He advises his brother on how to treat girlfriends before Cory was ever old enough to care, and he even teaches his hot female boss how to pick up men.
** And Shawn Hunter of BoyMeetsWorld. He [[HeterosexualLifePartners spends all his time with a guy,]] [[RealMenWearPink writes secret poetry about his feelings]] and even seems to [[WholesomeCrossdresser like getting in touch with his feminine side...]] yet he still gets more girls than anyone except maybe Eric.
* Gwaine from ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' fits this trope perfectly. He flirts with Guinevere (going so far as to put a flower in her hair) but backs off instantly when it becomes clear she's not interested. The next time they meet, they share a friendly hug.

** Also from ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', [[BigBad Reacher Gilt]] is also this to an extent. It's made very clear that all his vast wealth and power is solely down to his own brand of charm, and he makes people trust him [[RefugeInAudacity by being so ''blatantly'' untrustworthy that they lower their guard]] (dresses like a pirate, has a parrot that makes a joke on [[TreasureIsland "pieces of eight!"]] etc.).

* Shawn Spencer in ''{{Psych}}'' is almost the dictionary definition of this trope. In one episode, he walks into a police questioning room where an engaged couple (whom he has not actually met before this moment, let us note) are describing how their priceless wedding ring has been stolen. Within a minute, he's nabbed himself an invitation to their high-society wedding, and ends up hosting the bachelor party, scoring a date with the maid of honour [[spoiler: until it's revealed she's behind it all]] and delivers the best man's toast at the wedding. He's also a perfect illustration of the 'loyal-but-love-to-hate-him' kind, as his life-long best friend Gus (and everyone else around him) is frequently exasperated at how easily things seem to come to him despite the fact that he usually does bugger all work towards it.
