* Elias in ''Manga/MahouTsukaiNoYome'' said this trope is one of the reasons he takes Chise under his wings (aside from making her his apprentice) though we don't actually know if he's serious or not. At the very least, other magicians and magical beings believe him and constantly call Chise his bride/fiancee.
