* ''Film/TheProfessional'' (or) ''Leon'': NataliePortman's 13-year-old character Matilda asks a hitman named Leon to train her to be an assassin, to avenge her younger brother killed by a crooked cop and his henchmen. He reluctantly takes her under his wing and she grows to have sexual feelings for him, which he never returns (as it's his policy as a professional assassin never to complicate his life with women and children ''and she's both'') , but she does confess her love to him as he does. Leon goes from being teacher and protector to a love interest for the young girl. [[spoiler:Averted by [[ThePlotReaper the ending]].]]

*Gender flipped and used jokingly in Disney's ThePrincessAndTheFrog by Charlotte at the end who, upon Tiana's marriage to Naveen, asks how old his brother is. Cut to her dancing with Naveen's very much younger brother, who replies, "Seven." How does she respond? "Well, I've waited this long!"

* MercedesLackey's Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar series has a major villain, Hulda, who uses this as her means of ascending to power. She poses as a nursemaid to Princess Elspeth of Valdemar, intending to corrupt her and become the power behind the throne when she grows up (never mind that the Companions would never have Chosen her in that state, and only a Herald can be Monarch). When that plan fails, she does the same with Prince Ancar of Hardorn -- becoming his lover in the process -- and succeeds in having him usurp his father's throne. It is later revealed that she did all this as an agent of the Eastern Empire.

* ''Literature/TheObsidianTrilogy'': Played somewhat worryingly straight in MercedesLackey's and James Mallory's series. The human Wild Mage Idalia and the elven warrior/[[spoiler:Dragon Mage]] Jermayan are in love. Elves, however, marry for life, and only once, and like [[OurElvesAreBetter most elves]], Jermayan's people can live for much longer than the healthiest human. After they reconcile themselves to this, [[spoiler:Idalia dies as part of a price for a powerful spell she cast. Then the queen of the elves has a child...and the child has most of Idalia's features; apparently reincarnation is something elves believe in. He notes that now they're both elves, "eighteen years is not so long to wait".]]

* In the Tudor/Elizabethan period novels by MercedesLackey and Roberta Gellis, the elven warrior Denoriel is Elizabeth Tudor's destined protector starting several years before her birth. When Elizabeth is 14, Denoriel (and his sister Aleneil) deal with Elizabeth's awakening sexuality by getting her into Denoriel's bed. To be fair, in that era a 14 year old female was old enough to be a mother, and Denoriel was a "safer" lover than some of the humans who were sniffing around the third in line to the throne. But this doesn't stop Denoriel from being simultaneously aroused and squicked by the idea.

* Thomas Day had no luck getting a woman to marry him, so he and his friend John Bicknell arranged to take on two foundling girls as apprentices to their friend, Richard Edgeworth. He renamed the girls Sabrina and Lucretia and moved them to France to be taught in isolation along the lines Rousseau recommended. He decided Lucretia wasn't smart enough and dismissed her. Then he moved Sabrina back to England and began tutoring her himself, doing things like dripping hot wax on her arms to teach her stoicism and firing blanks at her skirts to teach her calm nerves. Edgeworth eventually convinced him that the experiment was not successful, and Day sent her off to a boarding house, then eventually hired her as a housekeeper. He ended up proposing marriage, which she accepted, but then called it off when she turned out not to be as meek and obedient as he preferred. She went back to the boarding house where Bicknell found her, told her of the original plan, and after she confronted Day through a series of letters and received confirmation but no apology, proposed to her. Bicknell and Sabrina married, started a family, and Bicknell died a few years later. Someone published a book about Sabrina, and Edgeworth followed up by publishing his own memoirs, stating that Sabrina had always loved Day. Sabrina publicly denied this, saying she was miserable with Day, and that he treated her like a slave. After she was widowed, both Day and Edgeworth contributed to a small yearly stipend. After Day's death, his widow continued the stipend. Sabrina found work as housekeeper for Charles Burney and became the general manager of his three schools. She lived to the ripe old age of 86 and asked that no one bring up her humble beginnings or Day's treatment of her.

* The story "'Sieur George" by George Washington Cable has the title character raise the daughter of the woman he (apparently) once loved; when she's sixteen, he points out that it would now be scandalous for them to be living together...unless, of course, they were married. She promptly leaves their small apartment and never speaks to him again.

* In ComicBook/CaptainAtom, the hero's daughter, Margaret, begins a relationship with Jeff Goslin, her godfather. Not her father, but the implications are the same. The subtext, incidentally, was that she really did have [[FreudWasRight romantic feelings for her father]], and was (barely) sublimating them by dating Goslin, who was her father's best friend in addition to being her godfather.
