%%* Lone Star and Princess Vespa in the StarWars parody ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''.
* For a while after ''Star Wars'', HarrisonFord was {{typecast}} for this kind of storyline. The number of movies with the premise "Harrison Ford is forced together with haughty woman and they [[BelligerentSexualTension hate each other]] but eventually fall in love" is considerable.
* Since it's a parody of ''Star Wars'', ''Spaceballs'' has a generous helping of this dynamic with Princess Vespa (of the planet Druidia) and Lone Starr. Mel Brooks said he named the planet Druidia so he could use this one joke:
--> Princess: "I am Princess Vespa, daughter of Roland. King of the Druids!"
--> Lone Starr: (groans) That's all we needed: a Druish princess."
--> Barf: "Funny. She doesn't look Druish."

* In David Eddings' ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}'', this is Garion and Ce'Nedra's relationship condensed down to four words. Unsurprisingly, she's pissed when she finds out that he isn't just a farm boy, but the long-lost heir to the Rivan Throne and hereditary Overlord of the West... in other words, ''more'' royal than she is. Belgarion has the foresight [[spoiler:to find a way to make them equal in status to preserve his own sanity after the marriage.]]

* Kitai of the ''Literature/CodexAlera''. She wanted to [[MagicalNativeAmerican bond]] with a ''horse'', and continues to remind Tavi at relatively regular intervals. She doesn't just look down at him for personal reasons, but also detests his ''species''. She snarks it up with some of the best and, yes, they do eventually fall in love. She gets a QuipToBlack to end out the series that doubles as this trope. It's also a mild genderflip: [[spoiler:Tavi's royalty, Kitai's just the daughter of the head of one tribe, and her people's diplomat (appointed by Tavi).]]

** The Daughter of the Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, Heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed! For non-Trekkies, that's Lwaxana Troi, [[TheEmpath Deanna's]] mom. She marched around the Enterprise and Deep Space Nine like she owned the place, and looked awesome doing it. At least once per appearance, she would say her full title when letting some unfortunate schmo know who they were dealing with, in a way that would evoke the local equivalent of "Well, excuuuuse ''me'', Princess!" if not for the diplomatic incident it would cause. She ''wanted'' to be Picard's LoveInterest, but he wasn't interested... though she claims otherwise, [[PsychicPowers and she would know]]. It's made all the more hilarious that Lwaxana was played by Majel Barrett Roddenberry, and therefore literally owned the place (the idea, anyway).\\

* This sums up ''[[Anime/MazingerZ Kouji Kabuto]]'' and Maria Grace Fleed's relationship in ''UFORoboGrendizer'', which might be one of the (if not ''[[TropeMaker the]]'') earliest examples in anime. Considering that Koji is being [[IdiotHero himself]], Maria's behavior is understandable.
