* At the start of Season 4 of ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', Oliver was going to propose to Felicity with a ring in a soufflé, but abandoned this idea when his city needed him again. He finally proposes to her in the mid-season finale, as part of his speech at the Star City Christmas tree lighting ceremony. [[spoiler: This leads directly into a cliffhanger where she is probably killed.]]

* In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' it's directly stated that there is no love involved in marriage in this world so as soon as you help your local friend out with anything; you can marry them on the spot.
** Further adding to the oddness is that EveryoneIsBi, despite it taking place in seemingly medieval times; cant be mad at that though. Though one cant help but feel someone might just raise an eyebrow about the Lizard Man and his Dark Elf Husband, ''Which has never been seen in-universe before you''

* Sherman from the ''Film/TheNuttyProfessor 2'' does this. At first trying to use a mariachi band to help him out but Buddy (who's part of his system after the events of the last movie and occasionally causes "hiccups" in him that force Sherman to talk crass) ruins it. The second attempt involves Sherman using a special spray and fireflies to spell out his proposal. This time he met with success.

At the climax, he finally proposes while surrounded by a SWAT team and the National Guard; she manages to say "yes" before they both get tased.

* In Volume 22 of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', Issei proposes to Akeno in the middle of a Rating Game, while fighting Akeno's ''father'' Barakiel and with Akeno not physically present. This unnerves Barakiel and contributes to his loss. This is one-upped in the next book when Xenovia and then Irina (the latter following the former's lead) propose to Issei during another Rating Game. When he says yes, [[ThePowerOfLove they start fighting twice as hard as they were before]].

* A good majority of proposals in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' are examples; from wedding rings inside prank boxes to confession through sword there aren't many cases of a standard question. Most scenarios are also proposals just as soon as the two seem to like each other; the moment two people show any sign of interest its instant marriage.

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/8793565/chapters/20159878 How the Light Gets In]]'', Dean and Laurel had a decidedly unconventional proposal. He got her grandmother's engagement ring (which was literally thrown at him), but couldn't work up the nerve to actually propose. Eventually, she got tired of waiting and (right after sex no less) asked:
-->'''Laurel:''' So you gonna lock this shit down or what, bro?
-->'''Dean:''' ''{after he stops laughing)'' Sure, why not?

* One particularly dedicated ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' fan hacked the game so that Lumine Hall would spell out a marriage proposal instead of Ness' stream-of-consciousness being projected onto the wall.
