* Played with in Triquetra Cats. One of the squad leaders in the Antreyki military IS the General's daughter, despite being competent as a military leader, she also tends to be a flaky party girl and she was placed there as an attempt to straighten her out

* Interesting take on this in LaFilleDuRegiment ('Daughter of the Regiment'), who is adopted, obviously, and calls the entire 21st regiment "Papa". Once Tonio joins up, their romance is okay.

* ''Film/ThePresidio'' is one example, with the hero cop (a former soldier) fooling around with the daughter of the Presidio's Provost Marshal, a ColonelBadass played by Creator/SeanConnery. A ReversedTrope, as he only gets in the relationship a few years ''after'' he had been courtmartialled, demoted, and drummed out of the Army by said Colonel.
** After Sean Connery's character beats a thug senseless using [[CherryTapping only his thumb]], this trope is {{lampshaded}} when the cop remarks ''"Have I mentioned that my intentions towards your daughter are purely honorable?"''
** Of course, immediately before the thug interrupted, they had been [[DiscussedTrope discussing that very topic.]]

* ''Film/OperationDumboDrop'' (1995). Danny Glover's character blackmails a supply sergeant into coming on the mission by threatening to spill the beans on him sleeping with a general's wife ''and'' his daughter. For context, this is a '''Creator/{{Disney}}''' film.

* Averted in the JohnWayne western-comedy ''Film/McLintock'', when hired hand Devlin ends up sharing some BelligerentSexualTension with [=McLintock's=] daughter Becky. Devlin is unsure if he should act upon it because [=McLintock=] is the wealthiest man in the territory and Devlin's just the "hired hand", prompting [=McLintock=] to answer, "Every so often Dev, you spell the strangest ideas. Everybody works for somebody. I work for everybody in the East United States that steps into a butcher shop for a T-Bone steak and you work for me, it's not much difference." With these words, [=McLintock=] indicates that he would not be averse to Devlin(whom he respects as a hard worker and a fine young man) and his daughter getting together. Which they do by the end of the movie.
