- In one episode of My Bride Is a Mermaid, Lunar joins the same class Nagasumi and her rival Sun are in. She wants to prove herself to be more popular than Sun, and claims she forgot her books. Sun tries to offer her notebook, but a bunch of the male students throw theirs on top of her desk. Lunar starts to gloat a little, but then Sun does a similar thing, and gets even more books than Lunar did.

- In an uncommon male variation, Yuki is the unwilling recipient of this in Fruits Basket. The girls are usually more likely to offer favors than to do them without asking, though (probably because they are jockeying for position to be the closest in proximity to Yuki while he is present).
- Bleach: Rangiku Matsumoto tends to take advantage of this trope. It's cranked Up to Eleven to be Played for Laughs in the anime, however.
- In her very first appearance in 1940 Catwoman escaped thanks to this trope. She was onboard a yacht and stole a jewel before being captured by Batman... who then allowed her to escape (and 'accidentally' bumped into Robin to stop him interveneing to catch her.)

- Spoofed in Bill Plympton's short Luv Race, with three athletes literally racing to do favors for a very attractive girl.

- In Snow Day, after Claire breaks up with her Jerkass boyfriend, she wakes up one morning to find every teenage boy in New York State standing outside her window holding signs, flowers, boxes of chocolates, etc.

- In "Putting Your Hoof Down", she flirts with a nerdy-looking stallion, complimenting his non-existent muscles, all so he will willingly give Fluttershy the last asparagus.
