* Jack Vance plays with this in ''The Palace of Love'', with the villain cloning a girl who spurned his lechery years ago and arranging for the clones to receive various upbringings which (according to his thinking) should make at least one of them susceptible to him. Not played completely straight in that he doesn't do the raising himself, though he does direct the manner of it. It still proves his undoing, though, because the hero protagonist has learned of the plan and figures (correctly, as it turns out) that at least one of them has to know which of several potential suspects is the man she was raised to love.

* In the novel (and anime, and films) ''Literature/DaddyLongLegs'', the main character Judy ends up marrying her patron. At least in the novel, Judy's interaction with the titular Daddy-Long-Legs ([[spoiler: aka the [[BunnyEarsLawyer eccentric millionaire]] Jervis Pendelton, her roommate Julia's uncle]]) is limited to the letters she send to him, so they don't really have an actual relationship until she meets him in person (not realizing he's her patron) and they begin a romance. On the other hand, he ''does'' occasionally abuse his authority as her patron to interfere with her relationships with other young men, particularly her best friend Sallie's older brother, Jimmie [=McBride=].
** Also, to be fair, Judy's about eighteen when the story starts, so it's more 'paying for her to go to college' than raising her on his part.

** Additionally, Asuna has a clear crush on Takahata, who helped take care of her when she was young. He objects to the idea, but it's her overt intention.

[[spoiler:Twisted as it turns out that Asuna is ''much'' older than Takahata, though she spent most of her life with the appearance and personality of a five-year-old.]]

* Inverted and subverted in ''Anime/MaiOtome''. 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.]].

* The handler of Naomi Umegae in ''Manga/ZettaiKarenChildren'' attempted to raise Naomi (age 16) into his own ideal bride. The training was sufficient that Naomi found it difficult to outright say she hated it, but an encounter with [[DirtyOldMan Kaoru]] awoke her resistance and she began making him pay. She also soon after changed her codename from "Kittycat" to "Wildcat." In what may be a ShoutOut to another entry on this page, the manga chapter this took place in was titled "PrincessMaker".

* 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!"

* ''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]].]]
