* In a sense this is what happens between Lord Vincent Stanton and his cousin Adrienne in the Satanic gothic romance ''Lord Satan'' by Janet Louise Roberts. Adrienne is seventeen, has lived a working-class life, educated by her father; now he's just died and she's prepared to earn her own living. Vincent, who appears to be about forty, invites her to live with him. He treats her as more of a daughter at first. Since she's so young and likes fairytales and "toys" (''[[GetYourMindOutOfTheGutter objets d'art''), he infantilizes her and calls her "child" and "little girl". She's just lost her father, so responds as younger than she is. As they fall in love he begins to see she really is a woman and respects her judgment; she realizes that [[OurDemonsAreDifferent he is a devil]], but actually [[SatanIsGood devoted to justice and healing]], and she stands up for herself on the matter of joining Satanic cults and that.

A story where (usually) a man falls in love with a woman having raised her from childhood. She looked up to the man, thought of him as a father figure or beloved uncle, a guardian, counted on him to be there when she needed him, etc. In the more extreme cases, she might have even vowed to marry him when she came of age.

** Apparently, as clarified further in the novels, he tried to execute a Hikaru Genji Plan with [[{{Shotacon}} the young Sousuke]], but failed completely. He pretty much told 12-year-old Sousuke, "Why don't you come to my camp? There's food, ammunition, and AS parts there." (Which sounds suspiciously like a "There's candy over in my van, little boy" scenario.) Knowing [[spoiler: Gauron]], it's highly doubtful that his plans were anything pure and kindhearted. Of course, Sousuke refuses, and [[spoiler: Gauron]] spends the next five years unable to forget "beautiful" Sousuke.

* In the ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'' manga, this was what the old merchant Yamatoya does with Suzu after [[spoiler: Suzu's master was killed and he was left all alone starving in the streets]]. Although he's [[{{Shotacon}} old enough to easily be his grandfather]], he apparently picked up Suzu entirely for the purpose of [[spoiler:raping him and making him his "pet"]]. Suzu wasn't the only one, however -- two [[CreepyTwins twin]] kitty boys were also picked up by him for this purpose. Suzu ''does'' end up getting revenge on him, however. To put it in Suzu's words:

* This is pretty much the relationship between Moeko and Mariya in the shoujo manga series ''Kindan'' (by Osakabe Mashin). Not that Mariya even really ''bothered'' [[JailBaitWait waiting]] [[{{Lolicon}} until Moeko grew up]]. A ''lot'' of people were unnerved by how he raped her when she was ''really'' young (around maybe six years old?), and used his status as her guardian to take advantage of her. Yes, it was all played as [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop being romantic]]. It's especially creepy when it shows how he actually planned to do a Hikaru Genji Plan with her the moment he saw her in the orphanage.

* Lenore and Ragamuffin from ''ComicBook/LenoreTheCuteLittleDeadGirl'' are prone to this, mostly due to the fact that he takes care of her, being her guardian and friend at the same time. Even though [[{{Lolicon}} she's often paired with him when she's a child]], because Lenore [[UndeadChild can't practically grow up physically]]. Still, there are instances when fans make Lenore older just to avoid any {{Squick}}.

Ten years later, he rescues her from orcs, and agrees to "be her boyfriend".

A story where (usually) a man scores with a woman because the man raised the woman when she was a child. She looked up to the man, thought of him as a father figure or beloved uncle, a guardian, counted on him to be there when she needed him, etc. In the more extreme cases, she might have even vowed to marry him when she came of age.

Then, when SheIsAllGrownUp, the girl decides she is in love with the man, or vice versa.

he with her, or both.



A source of ValuesDissonance in older works, because it used to be common practice for noblemen to marry younger daughters of friends and acquaintances, so this trope would have occurred a lot both in fiction and real life. Even in modern times, some people argue that this is not a problem so long as the former child is now an adult and able to properly consent.

* ''Literature/{{Phenomena}}'' contains an odd case of gender swapping this. Through the story is there a woman reffered to as ''[[TheEvilPrince Tarkan]]'s woman'', and one never get to know much about her. It's strongly implied that they were romantically involved. [[spoiler: Then suddenly one learn that she was the one that brought him to [[TheGoodKing King Veha]] when he was a baby, as the King was [[ParentalNeglect very busy]] she aparently came back and raised the boy herself every now and then. Suddely after being so busy he even left Tarkan to rule the country [[WhatTheHellHero for a while]], he finds Tarkan and this woman doing something so horrid (Strongly implied to be ParentalIncest) including to the two being implied now to be married, that he decides to banish them, her to become an immortal OminousOwl and him to be an evil thought/idea until some [[TheChosenOne chosen children]] can defeat him once for all for him, cue to the [[TheProphecy Phenomena]] being written and so 1000s of years later the story begins.]]

*''Series/IntoTheBadlands'': Very much implied between Quinn and Jade, his soon-to-be second wife who just so happened to be his son's childhood friend [[spoiler: and secret lover]]. Also downplayed in season two between he and [[spoiler: Veil when he forces her to marry him, because then you remember that it was mentioned in season one that Quinn gave an infant Veil to her adopted parents as a gift for saving him (and Veil is around the same age as Jade and Ryder). An then you remember that [[VillainousCrush he's always had this creepy fascination with her since season one.]]]]
