** In the three-strip story "Lapis Lazuli", Vanka attempts to steal two huge gemstones from a temple, only to be stopped by two monks who claim to be undefeatable in battle, due to an "ancient secret". Vanka spots the text on their idol which says "purity is strength". She promptly rapes them, rendering them unable to even punch her, let alone stop her from leaving with the gemstones. [[spoiler:They then change the inscription to claim their weakness is bees]].

* Played depressingly straight in an episode of the short-lived 1997 series ''Series/ConanTheAdventurer.'' One of Conans many doomed love interests starts out a virgin warrior who can magically adorn herself with impenetrable armor and gain incredible strength and speed. She and Conan eventually fall in love and have sex. She later dies after being captured, because she couldn't do the armor thing anymore. At least he got laid that time?

* Subverted in ''Series/DantesCove'', where [[spoiler: a virgin is someone who has never used magic]]. Luckily for the characters, because [[EverybodyHasLotsOfSex a literal virgin would be even harder to find]].
* When a vampire is delivered to the flat of ''Series/TheYoungOnes'', Vyvyan argues that vampires only attack virgins. All four lads are quick to deny their eligibility, but the vampire itself remarks "what a choice!", confirming that they're all lying.
* In the ''IClaudius'' miniseries, a Roman soldier hesitates to execute a condemned family's young daughter because she's a virgin, apparently fearing the gods may punish him for such an unprecedented act. He's ordered to [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil subvert this trope in the worst way possible]] before he kills her.

* In Myth/ClassicalMythology, three of the goddesses -- Athena/Minerva, Artemis/Diana, and Hestia/Vesta -- were "virgin goddesses." Whether "virgin" meant never having had sex, or merely meant never having been married, is a subject of some scholarly debate. In any case, their special status would have been nullified if any of them ceased being a virgin. In the case of at least one of these goddesses, her temple priests were also expected to be virgin women, and their authority as priestesses would likewise vanish should any of them cease being a virgin. These priestesses were, of course, the Vestal virgins.

* Subverted with no small amount of glee on an episode of ''TheDrewCareyShow'', where [[{{Satan}} the Devil]] -- or someone who definitely thinks he ''is'' the Devil -- insists he's going to get married to Kate and take her away with him. About to win a game of pool for double or nothing (her soul and Drew's), he boasts, "In the corner pocket... Devil's about to take a virgin bride!" At which point Drew and friends cackle. Upon finding out [[ReallyGetsAround she has had sex]], he insists "there's leeway," and whispers a question the audience doesn't hear. Looking almost embarrassed, she says, "Just once." He storms out, saying, "You people are sick!" and resulting in the immortal quote:

* In ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko'' Himeko Kurusugawa and Chikane Himemiya are virgins until [[spoiler:Chikane rapes Himeko]]. The point of which in the anime was[[spoiler: as part her StrikeMeDown plan to make Himeko kill her]] but in the mangas it was meant to [[spoiler: remove her powers through the loss of her purity, thus making her worthless as a sacrifice to the Orochi, but it's subverted by the use of Himeko's hymen-blood to revive Ame No Murakumo, since that blood is technically pure]].

* Possibly occurs in ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero''. It's stated that only "pure" girls can become [[MagicalGirlWarrior Heroes]]. It's never elaborated what exactly "pure" means, whether it be "pure hearted" or what. Only elementary and secondary school aged girls are shown as Heroes though.



* Both WonderWoman and {{Supergirl}} are sometimes called "The Maiden of Might". Both of them would probably still have their powers if they ever stopped being a virgin -- although Wonder Woman's association with the virgin goddess Diana might cast some doubt on this -- but they'd clearly have to drop the "maiden" appellation.

* ''Film/{{Legend}}''. Lily's "innocence" allows her to approach the unicorns. This is deliberately taken advantage of by Darkness and the goblins to harm them.

* In the hentai ''La Blue Girl'', in a rare male example, semen from a virgin can be used with a particular spell (and consumed) to get the kunoichi that uses it to the Shikima realm. (No word on whether or not a male ninja could use this technique with another male, or by consuming the vaginal secretions of a female virgin.)
