* In season 2 of ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'', we find out in flashbacks that Vee seduced RJ, who was her foster son in all but name, once he grew up. Subverted in that [[spoiler: she was only doing it as a ruse to get revenge on him for trying to start his own business without her]].

* In ''DGrayMan'', the Noah Sheryl can be viewed as this. He's... a bit ''too'' [[IncestIsRelative affectionate]] towards Road, his adopted daughter. Not to mention that it's pretty much stated outright that the only reason why he got married was just so he could get Road as his daughter. Hum. Although to make matters more confusing, she's [[spoiler:OlderThanTheyLook and at ''least'' 45 years old. She might well be older than him.]]

* ''[[OtakuNoMusumesan Otaku no Musume-san]]'' has a very literal instance in which the landlady, Taeko, was raised since elementary school by Sousuke, an aspiring manga artist, after her grandfather, her previous guardian, died. To solve an inheritance dispute when Taeko turned 16, the two get married, but the story makes it clear that love for each other strongly influenced the decision.

* Literature/HalfPrince character Zhuo Lin Bin, aka Wicked, the [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Unlucky Childhood Friend]], eventually raises Lan's daughter and is tricked into agreeing to marry her. Zhuo is reluctant at first, as he always loved her [[strike: mother]] [[strike: father]] (it's [[MisterSeahorse complicated]]) female parent. He is also concerned about the age difference, but since humans can live over 200 years in that time, it's not a major issue.

* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', this is ''very'' disturbingly done with Princess Charlotte and the King of Midland. She grew up to look [[IdenticalGrandson exactly like her mother]], the Queen of Midland. Unfortunately, this also caused her father to go from being a PapaWolf to an out-and-out attempted rapist. Very, ''very'' [[NoYay disturbing]] indeed.

* In ''Anime/MaiOtome'', Inverted and subverted in Mai-Otome Nina is desperate for the love of her adoptive father Sergay Wong who only thinks of her as his daughter. Her friend Arika also falls for him, and that's almost as awkward for Sergay since he suspects (correctly) that Arika is [[spoiler:the daughter of his former love, Lena Sayers]]. It should also be pointed out that it was Nina who decided to play off this trope and wanted to become an Otome in order to be more like Lena who Sergay [[PrecociousCrush had a crush on as a boy]]. Sergay doesn't find out Nina's feelings until late in the series, [[spoiler: when he actually does get a chance to play this trope straight and yet he can't do it because he thinks of Nina as his own daughter. His failure to reciprocate on her feelings nearly causes TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.]].

** don't think this actually counts; if anything, it's HotForTeacher. Sparhawk was grooming Ehlana to be queen, and the thought of marrying her literally never crossed his mind. Also, he was in exile and unable to contact Ehlana from when she was eight, to when she was eighteen. Not to mention, if carefully read a scene between Ehlana and Emperor Sarabian in the Tamuli, she tells him, "I was born loving Sparhawk." (given that both Aphrael and Bhelliom had a vested interest in their lives, this might very well have been true). She also casually reveals that not only did she become her own spymaster growing up without Sparhawk to protect her, she also arranged the assassination of several of Annias' underlings... keep in mind, this was at age eighteen or younger!

** really don't think this actually counts; qualifies; if anything, it's HotForTeacher. Sparhawk was grooming Ehlana to be queen, and the thought of marrying her literally ''literally'' never crossed his mind. Also, he only raised her as her Champion from the ages of five to eight; after that he was in exile exiled, and unable to contact Ehlana from when she was eight, to when she was eighteen. for the next ten years. Not to mention, if you carefully read a scene between Ehlana and Emperor Sarabian in the Tamuli, she tells him, "I was born loving Sparhawk." (given that both Aphrael [[ChildGoddess Aphrael]] and Bhelliom [[WorldMaker Bhelliom]] had a vested interest in their lives, this might very well have been true). She also casually reveals that not only did she become her own spymaster growing up without Sparhawk to protect her, she also arranged the assassination of several of Annias' underlings... keep in mind, this was at age eighteen or younger!younger! This is ''not'' an easily influenced or led young woman. In fact, when Ehlana manoeveres Sparhawk into marrying her, all his friends seem to regard it as Sparhawk getting HoistByHisOwnPetard... I think Kalten even says outright "You created a woman of steel, and now she's forcing you to marry her."

** don't think ***isn't this actually counts; if anything, it's HotForTeacher. Sparhawk was grooming Ehlana to be queen, at least partly because he's a precog, and the thought has a vision of marrying her literally never crossed his mind. Also, he was a future in exile and unable to contact Ehlana from when she was eight, to when she was eighteen.

* One of the outright weirdest examples of this trope happened in a SilverAge issue of ''{{Superman}}'s Girl Friend Lois Lane''. You see, Superman is turned into a baby by some Red Kryptonite, and Lois tries to raise him so that when he reverts to his real age, he'll want to marry her -- and so does Lana Lang. In the end, their plans work...but not as intended, since the Superman in question was from an alternate universe, and he ends up returning home and marrying his universe's Lois and Lana.

* A rather unusually creepy example in {{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}}, where Goliath's clone [[EvilCounterpart Thailog]] creates clones of the other Manhattan Clan's gargoyles as his family... including one to be his concubine. And he designed her mixing DNA from Demona (Goliath's [[PsychoExGirlfriend Psycho Ex-Wife]]) and Elisa Maza (the human protagonist and Goliath's current LoveInterest).

* The ''PrincessMaker'' series of video games have this trope as a [[MultipleEndings possible ending]] if you develop a close enough relationship with the girl you raise from age 10 on (the youngest you can make the "father" in a later version of the game is 16). It should be noted that, depending on which guardian spirit you have, she will also frown on it but all will approve because they're not blood related and they truly love each other. The only requirement is that the girl have max relationship with her "father" and not have promised to marry anyone specific (since those marriages takes priority over this one). The girl herself can have any non-marriage profession ending, including being queen through her own abilities rather than through marriage. * In ''SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'', [[spoiler:Hawthorne]] is revealed to be a ''serial perpetrator'' of raising, sexually abusing and 'disposing of' female children, [[spoiler:his daughter Tricia being the latest victim. Although he is killed before this happens in the normal storyline, in the Demon Path, he succeeds and [[BreakTheCutie breaks her utterly]]]]. The [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Nereids']] plan for Penn is similar to this since due to their status as a OneGenderRace they need a male from another race in order to breed.

If you bother the conversation a little further, you find out that it's just from her point of view, sure, but the girl's uncle is DON CORNEO, the notorious mobster and pervert from the original game.

** Leonis from ''VideoGame/AgarestSenki ZERO'' also fall under this. Most of the women he can romance has raised him as a baby. (He even considers Alice as his surrogative mother and Mimel as his older sister)

* In Creator/{{Koei}}'s renderizations of the Sengoku Era of Japan (''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'', ''VideoGame/{{Kessen}}'', etc), Hideyoshi Toyotomi is constantly courting Oda Oichi, a girl 11 years younger than he is. She always rejects him and even calls him a persistantly annoying monkey in the ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'' series. She later marries the young pretty boy lord Nagamasa Azai and has a daughter who is later known as Lady Yodo. After Nagamasa is killed in a battle against Oichi's brother Nobunaga, Hideyoshi helps raise the young Yodo and she eventually becomes his concubine, producing a son name Toyotomi Hideyori. Hideyoshi is more than 30 years older than Yodo. Yeah... couldn't get the girl so went for brain-washing the daughter huh? Nice! * In ''HarvestMoon64'', Elli's potential suitor was Jeff, the baker, who had at least a supporting role in parenting her (presumably, Ellen, her grandmother, was dominant).
