* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', Scrooge had a dream in which he was 'Scroogerella', and was competing against his evil step-siblings the Beagle Boys for the heart of Princess Goldie. At the end of the ball Scrooge ended up leaving behind his gold top hat, which Goldie tried to use to find him. Though in this case there were numerous people who would be able to wear the hat... if it wasn't for the fact that it violently assaulted anyone who tried to put it on other than Scrooge, regardless of hat size.

* In Lawrence Block's ''The Burglar Who Studied Spinoza'' Ray Kirschmann presents a rubber glove with the palm cut out as evidence that Bernie was involved in the Colcannon robbery. Since the glove was actually lost by his partner-in-crime Caroline, Bernie tries to divert suspicion by demonstrating that it doesn't fit his hand.

* Played with in, of all places, TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild, where Zora females traditionally craft a set of armour for the one they wish to marry. The [[FantasticRacism prejudiced and arrogant]] elder, Muzu, refuses to accept the help of a Hylian like Link, or believe that he could've been important to his long dead, beloved student Mipha, and withholds his help. He has to accept the truth, though, when it's revealed the Zora armour Mipha made is a [[WackyMarriageProposal precise fit for Link and was clearly made for him]].

* DeconstructedTrope in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' during the [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090107 Cinderella parody]]. Tarvek has Cinderella's slippers and wants to find the girl who fits them, but Gil argues that the shoes, size nine-and-a-half, would fit too many other women. While trying to narrow it down Tarvek brings out a picture of Cinderella, and Gil points out that if they have that they no longer need the shoe.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw,'' the school dance that [[ExtracurricularEnthusiast Amanda]] organized has problem after problem, largely due to [[TheJinx Milo]]'s presence. When the electricity goes out he quickly fixes the decorations before going to the circuit breaker ([[CrazyPrepared naturally]], he was carrying night-vision goggles). In the process he loses a shoe. When Amanda sees everything fixed she finds the shoe and, wanting to thank "her hero," goes looking for whomever is missing one. * In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', Roger finds a nipple pastie the night after a wild party at his bar/attic and goes around trying to find the girl whose nipple fits it. He eventually finds his match, weirdly enough, in a small cottage living with two mean stepsisters.

** Despite that the main characters know the story, Nozomi being a {{Dojikko}} really lost her shoe by tripping downstairs.
** This trope is played in ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'', where the Cinderella scenario happens again, but the villains try to ruin the story because their goal is creating bad ends. Miyuki being GenreSavvy takes off her shoe and puts it on the stairs instead of losing the shoe. But the villains being clever steal the original shoe and they make an extra large glass shoe for Akaoni. His shoe fits, but it immediately breaks. Candy takes the original back and the shoe flies on Miyuki's foot who just [[{{Dojikko}} tripped]].

* {{Justified}} in ''Literature/YehShen,'' one of the earliest versions of the Cinderella tale--it's specifically the golden slipper's small size that makes it so that no other woman will fit it. (Well, presumably the king only tested it on those of marriageable age.) In Chinese culture small feet are traditionally an important standard of beauty, hence the practice of foot-binding (which is believed to have begun about a century after this story was written).
