* ''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 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.

* 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.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' novelization, the ''Fall of Reach'', Ensign William Lovell's record states that he had an affair with a Ms. Gerov, whom Captain Jacob Keyes, viewing Lovell's career service vitae, suspects to be the daughter of Rear Admiral Gerov. Interesting in the fact that, while Lovell turns out to be a very competent navigational officer, it is suggested that he may have made advances on her ''on purpose'', because Lovell has gotten so shaken up from the war that he deliberately had himself demoted to be rotated anywhere ''but'' the frontlines.
