You are getting increasingly frustrated. Your Love Interest is ignoring your affections for him/her, even though you're making it oh so blatantly obvious. And you love him/her so much, so much that you can't stand it, that you wish he/she would stop ignoring you, and stop being so oblivious to your love for him/her. What do you gotta do?
Why, grab him/her, pull them close to you and plant a big wet one right on those lips that you've been dying to kiss for so long! And of course, you may not think about what possible consequences that your actions could bring you, since you are just too damn excited at being able to be so close to your love.
Note: engaging in this trope means that you may be a bit overly confident in your attempts to "woo" someone, you may have no idea how to actually do the whole romance thing, or you just couldn't help yourself, and you simply had to get your feelings across somehow.
Sometimes overlaps with "Shut Up" Kiss and Tsundere. It may also happen to a person who is the victim in a I Have You Now, My Pretty moment. May or may not hint at an Attempted Rape.

Shugo Chara!, where famous Idol Singer Utau Hoshina forcefully kisses the mysterious cat-boy Ikuto Tsukuyomi, much to the shock and horror of Amu, Kukai and their Charas (to quote Ran, "It's an adult's world!"). And it becomes Squick once you realize how they are related: she's his sister...
And Ikuto himself is so displeased that he slaps her away.

Since a kiss on Negi is required for a Pactio and Harunareally wanted the Artifact that comes with the Pactio, she does this on Negi. Twice.
Evangeline once forced a kiss on Negi too, "as a fee for her advice. Asking favors from an evil mage always requires payment."
There is also the part with the multiple fake Negi: One of them tries to forcefully kiss Yue, and explodes after she repels him. Said fake, named "Nugi", makes a reappearance as a golem that Haruna made for the girls to practice their Pactio kisses on. Naturally, it doesn't go as planned, and Akira suffers for it.
Sinbad has grabbed Kaitou Jeanne and kissed her at least twice. The first time, Jeanne was too shocked to do anything, but the second time she immediately shoved him away (then wondered where he went; maybe a rooftop wasn't the best place for that).
In Strawberry Panic! Yaya does this to Hikari at the end of episode 13. In the following episode when we see the scene again Hikari shoves Yaya to the floor when Yaya starts to grope her. An understandable reaction seeing as how Kaname had just tried to rape her before that.

Dorothy forces a kiss from Ginta in the last episode as a way of resolving the tension between them before he goes back to his world to be with Koyuki/Snow... or something. It seems to be her way to getting over the fact he's choosing Earth and Koyuki/Snow over her, but it's kind of vague.
Ai no Kusabi: Iason's favorite method to calm Riki down when the Pet Ring doesn't. On at least one occasion it's just to shut Riki up.
In Pandora Hearts chapter 3 Alice does this to Oz. This case is a little different because it's not because she likes him - she reveals later that she doesn't even understand the implications of a kiss; she was only doing it to get her blood into him... somehow.
In episode 7 of Mirage of Blaze Naoe tries to do this to Kagetora but Kagetora shoves him away.
Koharu No Hibi: Koharu does this to Akira in chapter 12. In chapter 16 Koharu does this to Mika because she wanted to be the one to be Akira's first kiss and Mika kissed him first so she was taking his kiss back.

In Minamoto Kun Monogatari, the main protagonist Terumi Minamoto is fast becoming an expert at this. Sometimes it gets him slapped, other times, it almost gets him laid. 100% of the time though, he still gets to make out with a hot woman.
Oddly enough, Light Yagami does this with Misa. However, he only did this to convince her that he was "in love" with her.
Luke Skywalker is subjected to a number of these in Marvel Star Wars, probably because he's never really willing to make the first move. A lot of them come from a woman named Dani who he's only interested in as a friend; eventually he stops reacting with shock and dismay and just casually dodges.
Happens in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series in the story entitled Sky Highway. In an alternate dimension, Raphael lands in the passenger side of Hildagaard Rail's car. She was a blonde german woman who had long legs and wore a dress that exposed her ample cleavage. However, spending time in this dimension mutated her giving Hildagaard gigantic lips that went practically from forehead to chin and ear to ear. When Raphael tried to leave her vehicle she grabbed him by the streams of his bandana, pulled him close and said "Shut up and kiss me, you dumkoff!" Her long passionate forced smooch left a lipstick mark that covered Raphael's entire beak and even got on his teeth. When Raphael managed to get away from her Hidagaard Rail called out, "Unt I was sure you would turn into a prince! Auf Wiedershen loverboy!"
Shortly after Magma joined the New Mutants a lout in Rio De Janeiro did this to her. Unfortunately, it made her powers go berserk (a bad case of sunstroke later made it even worse), and might have destroyed the city if her teammates hadn't found her and calmed her down.
In this strip, Garfield forces a kiss from Arlene. As you can see, she didn't react to it well...
Prince Charming (naturally) gives one to Beauty, and while she does return the kiss and admit she was tempted to cheat on her husband, she very firmly says it will never happen again. She's right; the near-affair with Charming (plus his insistence that one thing he's never wrong about is when a woman is genuinely attracted to him and unhappy with her current marriage,) prompts her to treat her husband much better than she had been, and their relationship is actually strengthened by the near-betrayal.
Prince Ambrose, after ages spent dancing around their obvious mutual attraction, finally gives one to Red Riding Hood, after nearly ending the conversation with a carefully formal good-bye. She returns it, and from then on they are an Official Couple.
In the prison AU "Murderer's Row", O'Malley has quite a few of these with his poor little Doc. A side one-shot shows that it goes far beyond kissing. O'Malley also does this to Donut once (mistaking him for Doc) but that results in a chunk of his tongue being bitten off.
In the Kalash93 story, Relax, the protagonist is suddenly grabbed and snogged rather forcefully by his lover during some post-coital cuddling.
DC Nation: Starfire's fantastic restraint was demonstrated aptly when Cyborg snapped her out of Unstoppable Rage brought on by a Red Lantern Ring. Yup. Middle of a battlefield during Blackest Night, and Kory stops to plant on on her teammate - right before flying back in to kick some more Black Lantern butt.
In TSA The Amazing Spider Man Tabitha does this to Johnny Storm and then she reveals she has a list of heroes that she is going to kiss if she ever meets them in person number 5 is Johnny, number 4 is Mr. Fantastic, number 3 is Warbird, number 2 is Thor and numero uno is Spider-Man.
Aoshi also does this to "Karou". (Actually Kenshin dressed as Kaoru).
Happens a few times in A Growing Affection. Sakura gives one to Naruto. And Iruka and Anko seem to have a habit of doing this to one another.
Films — Animated
Subverted in Ratatouille: Linguini does this to Collette but only because Remy prods him into it. A little clip from a French film Linguini is watching earlier shows a man inflicting this on a woman with passionate results — apparently this is just the way things are done in Paris.
In the second Shrek movie Prince Charming does this to Fiona at the ball.
Jasmine to Jafar in Aladdin to distract him from discovering Aladdin.
In Corpse Bride, after coming back to life and chasing her "husband" Victor through the woods and onto a bridge, the titular character Emily gives him one after saying "You may kiss the bride" and before whisking him away to the land of the dead. Though she doesn't pull Victor towards her for a kiss, instead approaching him slowly while he makes no attempt to get away (though to be fair, he was scared out of his wits and backed up against the side of the bridge at the time).
The first film of The Mummy Trilogy. Imhotep plants one on Evy in her sleep. It doesn't help that when she awakens, his mouth has become decayed. Later, there is a subversion where Evy FORCES HERSELF to kiss Imhotep to prevent him from killing her rescuers.
Rick also plants one on Evy when she and Jonathan visit him in prison early in the film.

In the 2003 Korean film The Classic, the Romantic Runner-Up plants a kiss on the main character's Love Interest, much to his shock and anger. Mainly because they were acting in the middle of a play, with her going off-script, and with a huge audience - including the main character - watching.
Jacob does this to Bella twice in Twilight, the second time with a little more calculation.
Caine forces one on Diana in GONE and PLAGUE.
In later books, this goes from being douchey to just plain fridge horror, when you think of all the subtle rape undertones Michael Grant weaved into Caine and Diana's relationship;
Caine: "You know I have the power."
Diana: "Of course. I would be helpless. But that's not what you want."
Whichever way you look at it, that's pretty scary.
Given Ambrosio believes he is committing rape out of love in The Monk, this isn't surprising. Pf course, he only freaks out Antonia.
In the Wheel of Time, Mat saves an Aes Sedai from Seanchan attention the only way he knows... by snogging in a corner. Hiding in plain sight, if you will. She's scared out of her mind at the time, and while she goes along with the kiss for the sake of camouflage, afterwards she collapses. Despite being a renown womanizer in-universe, he has a policy of not getting mixed up with Aes Sedai, even the cute ones, making this one of the most platonic examples on this list.
In Venetia Oswald Denny attempts this as the result of weeks of jealousy, "calf-love", and teenaged sulking. He doesn't know how to make the kiss actually happen, though, and he gets pulled off before he gets very far.
Actually, Georgette Heyer is very fond of this trope in general. April Lady, The Convenient Marriage, Sylvester, Lady of Quality, and The Corinthian all have successful Forceful Kisses.
Rosto does this to Beka Cooper in Terrier. She finds it pretty enjoyable even though she spends the whole book rejecting him.
Live Action TV
Quite often in Smallville, and all of the following are on Clark. Don't ask how some human girls are able to do this to the Man of Steel.
Chloe in Hug
Chloe again in Rush.

Maxima in Instinct.

Gordon Brittas (played by Chris Barrie), the eponymous character from the British comedy series The Brittas Empire, daydreams about deputy manager Laura and himself; the fantasy sequence starts with him being entirely oblivious to her desperately trying to tell him how much she loves him. Finally she gets fed up with this and starts kissing him passionately. Just then, Brittas is jolted out of his daydream when the door opens and the real Laura comes in.

Finally happens in Angel after Fred's spent several episodes trying to hint at her feelings for Wesley, while he's been too distracted and selectively oblivious to notice. After confronting him and trying to explain how she's been trying really hard to get him to notice her, and leaving him speechless in the process, she finally gives up explaining it and just runs across the office to grab and kiss him. Since he'd already been in Unrequited Love with her for the past few seasons, he had no objections.
Monica gives Chandler one of these in Friends. Played with in that she isn't harbouring romantic feelings and just wants sex. (Ironically, it's hinted that Chandler is the one with the crush). The kiss kick-starts their romantic relationship and they fall in love.
How Kate finally gets her point across to Robin in Robin Hood. She's been acting weird, Robin yells: "Why are you so angry with me?" and she grabs him and kisses him.

Claire also got one from Sylar, which she responded to by stabbing him in the eye.
On The X-Files, Mulder kisses a woman who looks like Scully (but isn't, thanks to a Wizard of Oz dream) right before he jumps off the ship he's marooned on. The woman does not take it lightly, and gives him a sound punch to the face.
This probably also counts as a Now or Never Kiss, since the reason he kisses her is that he isn't sure if the timeline (he's trapped in the past) will return back to normal, and he'll ever see the real Scully again in the present. So he decides to kiss the next best thing, "in case we never meet again".
iLost My Mind picked up on the cliff hanger. Now they're in the middle of a four-episode love arc.
When Carly first meets Nevel, he sneaks one in on her, which leads to her dumping tapenade all over him and leading him to his constant attempts to ruin her web show.

Korean drama Goong had the prince do this to the female protagonist twice. First time, we don't see her reaction, though at the freeze-frame, she looked notably shocked. The second time, she slapped him.
Lana Shields does this to Jack Tripper several times on Three's Company. At times Jack seems to enjoy the kissing while it takes all of his energy to resist her feminine wiles. At one point he had to control his heavy breathing while she approached him. Another time she forcefully made out with him, and his body went numb as if he resigned. Jack was repelled because she was older than he was but once she got her lips on him it was difficult for Jack to get away. Eventually Lana was written off the show because it seemed illogical that Jack wouldn't return her affections.
Cassandra manages to snog the Doctor while she's in Rose's body. He doesn't know that it's her, and is left very stunned.
The Madame de Pompadour pushes the Doctor against a wall and kisses him with very little introduction. He's pleasantly surprised once he finds out who she is.
In a very funny scene from "The Unicorn and the Wasp", the Doctor has been poisoned and is self-administering a "detox" that involves consuming ginger beer, walnuts, anchovies, and some kind of shock. For the shock, Donna plants a big smooch on his lips. It's a shock because they're actually Platonic best friends.
Amy Pond does this to the Doctor halfway through her first season. It's completely unwanted, but she manages to get him up against the TARDIS door and just goes for it. He scrambles away while flailing a lot and reminds her that she has a fiance, and she's human, and he's 907 years old and doesn't like her that way.
The TARDIS very forcefully kisses the Doctor as soon as she's in a proper human body. Then bites him on the ear. He doesn't recognise her, and is extremely confused.
River Song gives the Doctor his first kiss with her simply because she expects that he's already used to it. Due to their Timey-Wimey Ball timelines, he's not, and flails aimlessly a bit before eventually returning the sentiment. Her first two kisses with him (from her perspective) were also entirely unwanted on his part: the first one is with poison lipstick and kills him, and the second one is a Heroic Sacrifice on her part and revives him at the cost of all her future regenerations.
In Seinfeld, Kramer surprises Jerry with a forceful kiss in "The Kiss Hello".
Kemal Pamuk does this to Mary on Downton Abbey - followed not long after by his going to her room and demanding sex. (She later acts as if it was consensual, though he'd arranged things so that it would be very awkward and difficult to say no.)

Star Trek: Voyager. In "Warlord" Kes is taken over by a Body Surf alien dictator called Tieran. He captures Vulcan security officer Tuvok and uses Kes' mind powers to break down his mental control, suggesting that Tuvok is sexually attracted to his young protege and forcing a kiss on him...which proves to be a mistake as Tuvok uses the opportunity to Mind Meld with Tieran, making brief contact with Kes who is Fighting from the Inside.
''Chuck: Happens at least twice between Chuck and Sara:
In season one, Chuck and Sarah are waiting for a bomb to count down and kill them, and after sniping at each other over their situation Sarah grabs Chuck and pulls him into a passionate kiss. Which gets awkward when the bomb turns out to not be a bomb...
In season two, Chuck is being prepared for a mission by Roan Montgomery, a CIA seduction expert, who tells him to kiss Sarah. At first Chuck resists despite Sarah's insistence it's ok, which leads to a nervous peck that has Roan declare Chuck hopeless. An argument ensues in which, after Roan pushes his buttons, Chuck grabs Sarah and pulls her into a kiss that leaves Sarah stunned and Roan (who pieces together Chuck and Sarah's genuine feelings for one another) watching them with an amused smirk.
In 2001, as part of his ladies' man gimmick, Dean Malenko gave one to Molly Holly. Molly responded by giving Malenko a Molly-Go-Round, which allowed her cousin, Crash, to defeat him to become WWF Light Heavyweight Champion.
In early-90's WCW, manager Alexandra York was trying to get Dustin Rhodes to join her stable of wrestlers, the York Foundation. Dustin responded by doing this to her.
What makes it even funnier in hindsight is that Alexandra York was played by Terri Runnels, Dustin's future wife.
In The Most Happy Fella, Joe, wiping tears from Rosabella's face, suddenly sweeps her into a passionate embrace and kisses her until she stops struggling against him and gives in.
Happens at Yuna and Seymour's wedding in Final Fantasy X. It is incredibly squicky for several reasons: How much Yuna doesn't want it, how much Seymour on the other hand does, Tidus' reaction, and the fact that Seymour is dead at the time.
Penelope Pussycat in one episode laid a bunch of these on Pepe Le Pew after she was put under a Love Potion type effect.
In the televised animated film "Scooby-Doo! Meets the Boo Brothers" Sadie-Mae Scroggins does this to Shaggy. Even though she was quite an attractive scantily clad green eyed blonde, Shaggy still had the mind of a young boy and was not into girls at the time. At one point Shaggy complains about finding a clue while looking in a bush. Sadie pops out of the bush and suggests he looks for "...lips on a girl honey," instead. Then she grabs him into the bush and makes out with him until he breaks free. Later she grabs him in a stable of hay and Shaggy has an even tougher time getting away from her smooches. From here they fall down into a wheelbarrow and Shaggy gets kissed two more times. All of these kisses were off screen but it's kind of confirmed that they locked lips later on when Sadie-Mae offers him "...another big kiss!" Shaggy declines and runs away but the love-struck Sadie just thinks he's playing hard to get.
In "Arnold Visits Arnie", Lulu, a lookalike of Lila, attempts to do this to Arnold once. And fails.
But in "Deconstructing Arnold" Curly succeeds after Rhonda, taking Helga's advice, "professes" her love to him in an attempt to repulse his amorous advances:
Rhonda: Okay, Curly, I admit it - I'm your secret admirer. And the truth is, no matter how hard I try and fight it, I'm (reading notes on her hand) really, really wild about you. In fact, I've fallen crazy in love. So whadda you say - how does that make you feel?
Curly: (grabs Rhonda in a passionate embrace and says) Give Daddy some sugar... (and lays a big fat wet one on her)
Curly kisses Rhonda a second time in "Curly's Girl". This time, it's on the lips. (The first kiss was on her cheek.)
In Code Lyoko, Aelita does this to Jérémie at the end of "XANA's Kiss". It's more surprising than forceful and ends with Jérémie in a Post-Kiss Catatonia.
Sissi also does this to Ulrich in episode "Ultimatum" — knowing that if she was going to forget about it because of the Return to the Past, Ulrich wouldn't.
This happens to Woody Woodpecker in a Fine Feathered Frenzy. Gorgeous Gal had a sexy voice but was an overweight and elderly crow who fell in love with Woody Woodpecker. When he accidentally ran into her arms Gorgeous tried to kiss him on the lips twice but he turned his head so she got both of his cheeks instead. Later she grabs her 'dream boy' while she is sitting on a couch and puckers her giant red lips getting them ready for action. The smitten senior citizen holds him down and kisses the Woodpecker on the lips twelve times. He eventually breaks free and can be seen smiling with his eyes closed for a split second so he may have enjoyed the kissing even if he is mostly turned off by her weight and age. Gorgeous Gal however becomes ecstatic and her lust intensifies. She rushes to kiss him again but misses and leaves a perfecly shaped giant lipstick imprint on the wall. Gorgeous Gal offered her huge puckered lips to him two more times, once while lying on another couch and again in a bubblebath but the Woodpecker ran away. Not that it mattered since Gorgeous got a priest to marry them and trapped him in a submarine. Chances are Woody Woodpecker didn't escape the inevitable forced kiss to the bride.
She must've gotten this from Aang, who did the same with Katara in The Ember Island Players, but she rebuffs him.

Morganna Roberts, aka "Morganna the Kissing Bandit", was a baseball fan who was "notorious" for doing this to MLB players (and occasionally NBA players) from the 70's to the 90's, doing so to such greats as Nolan Ryan, Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, George Brett (twice), Steve Garvey, and Cal Ripken Jr. Despite injuring herself occasionally while attempting to do so and being arrested for trespassing almost twenty times (the only serious charge was dismissed), and even being beaten up by security guards in Cincinnati on one occasion, her fame has earned her millions of dollars in various media appearances.
