* Inverted in ''LightNovel/KureNai'': while Shinkurou is very protective of the little girl he's caring for, any romantic affection seems to occur solely on Murasaki's side (notice her MeaningfulName). [[spoiler: Then again, considering Murasaki's BigScrewedUpFamily, this can be seen as played straight from ''their'' part.]]

* In ''Anime/MaiOtome'', Inverted and subverted. 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.]].
* GenderInverted in ''Anime/CodeGeass,'' where C.C., an [[MysteriousWaif immortal woman]], bestows {{telepathy}} on a Chinese StreetUrchin named Mao. However, he [[PowerIncontinence loses control of it,]] [[BlessedWithSuck profoundly affecting his sanity]], and the pair move into the wild where she practically raises him, during which time [[FreudWasRight he falls in love with her]]. In his madness he comes to believe this was her intent for him, but it was all in Mao's mind.

* Plays a prominent role in ''Anime/MyDaddyLongLegs''. An AnonymousBenefactor chose to send Judy to high school, getting her out of a hated orphanage. Over the years, he tries to steer her life in certain directions, although she puts up a good fight. It turns out that he's [[spoiler: her love interest, Jervis Pendleton.]] It doesn't seem that he intended to marry her in the beginning: the romance developed as she wrote letters to him over the course of her high school career. However, the relationship may be Squickier in the anime than in the novel because Judy is underage when she first begins writing to him.

* In ''Manga/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.]]

* In the manga ''Ardashan no Hanayome'', the main character, Prince Alexid is forced into a political marriage with the youngest princess of a conquered nation (a nation Alexid was largely in charge of conquering). How young? [[{{Squick}} Ten.]] To the story's credit, this is treated as pure politics, even as Alexid and Justinia do grow closer to each other, with Alexid taking on a Guardian/Big Brother role towards her. And the story clearly implies that that will mature into something real by the time Justinia comes of age, assuming they survive the political shenanigans around them.

So she takes 10-year-old current-day Fumiaki in hand, and we see that 13 years later, they're at least living together.]]

* Used in ''Manga/{{Appleseed}}'' (the manga, at least -- the movies are rather vague about the whole affair). Deunan is nine years younger than Briareos. She was eleven when they first met, and flashbacks have her father already aware of Bri's feelings for her when she was only seventeen. Averted slightly in that if either of them is forcing themselves on the other due to a past close relationship, it's ''Deunan''.



* ''Manga/VampireKnight'' has this between Kaname and Yuuki.



* In ''Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund'', while the elder did not raise the younger the relationship between seventeen year old Akira Kaburagi Regendorf and his father's [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld 400-ish]] liege lady Mina Tepes has strong overtones of this; especially as Akira was [[UnequalPairing pledged to serve her]] from birth and one of her vast EmbarrassingOldPhoto collection has her holding him as an infant.

* Inverted in the manga version of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'', as far as [[spoiler:Athena]] goes. [[spoiler:When she and Hayate were both around [[ToyShip 6-7 years old]], she took him in as her live-in butler, but she was ''also'' grooming him to be a gentleman.... a fitting 'life companion'. That is, until the whole End Of The World Story Arc, at any rate.]] She did seem genuinely surprised when he offered her the ring. [[spoiler: Or at least that he had worked so hard that he ''could''.]] Considering that she had ''told'' him to go out and buy a present for her.

* {{Gender Flip}}ped and generally dicked around with in ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}''. [[PrecociousCrush At the age of four]], Shinra Kishitani [[LoveAtFirstSight took one look]] at the [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld centuries-old]] [[HeadlessHorseman Celty Sturluson]] and decided that they were going to get married as soon as he was old enough. Celty's response over the next twenty years can be summed up as going from "Cute. The dumb kid wants to be my husband." to "Seriously, stop it or I will punch you." to "[[SheIsAllGrownUp ... I think I might actually love him back]]. Crap." to [[spoiler:"Screw it. Let's date."]]



* Clearly discussed (in a strangely gender-flipped way) in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', where some of the girls are plotting to raise Negi (their ten-year-old teacher) to be the perfect boyfriend. Explicitly called the 'Reverse Hikaru Genji Raising Plan'.
** Additional, 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.
