'''Basic Trope''': TheHero becomes TheChampion of a girl he just met.
* '''Straight''': Bob meets Alice and [[LoveAtFirstSight immediately falls hard for her]], deciding that he'll do anything to protect her.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Bob does this with every pretty girl he meets.
** Bob falls in LoveBeforeFirstSight.
* '''Downplayed''': Alice is one of the girls from Bob's village. After he protects her as a knight, he finds he's attracted to her.
* '''Justified''':
** Alice is some sort of celebrity, and Bob is one of TheKnightsWhoSaySquee.
** Bob only acts as Alice's knight because of a reward.
** Alice is the daughter of a very powerful king, so Bob decides to get on her good side in order to gain the sovereign's favor.
** Bob is a bodyguard android. When Alice reactivated it, (either intentionally or not) his guardian mode did so with him, and it dictates he must protect whoever set him on-line.
** Bob was raised to treat women with the highest respect so it feels natural to him.
** Bob feels attraction for women because they are beautiful and he feels compassion for those in {{d|amselInDistress}}istress because he is a NiceGuy. Alice is both a woman and in distress; what more need be said?
** Bob was assigned to be Alice's bodyguard by her relatives and they didn't expect a BodyguardCrush.
* '''Inverted''':
** [[HateAtFirstSight Bob is antagonistic to Alice even though they just met]].
** When Bob attempts to help Alice, he [[EpicFail fails miserably]] but his efforts steal Alice's heart, and she swears to protect him.
** Natilie is a Fairy Maiden and has Bob under a spell.
** Alice the warrior woman sees Bob, and he reminds her so much of her dead little brother that she is willing to lay down her life to protect him.
* '''Subverted''': It seems Bob is about to defend Alice, but she makes a bad first impression on him, snapping at him and driving him off.
* '''Double Subverted''': ...However, he decides she must be a {{Tsundere}} and decides to help her out anyway in hopes of winning her favor.
* '''Parodied''': Falling at least once for a complete stranger is a requirement to be known as a knight.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob meets Alice, who makes a bad first impression by being snappy and surly. Bob gets snappish back, but ends up helping her out, because she's in serious trouble with TheEmpire and helping her coincides neatly with his interests. His friends suspect there's something more to it, but he denies it all. After they help her out, Alice joins up, and it's eventually revealed that [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther they've fallen for each other after all]]... but it's left ambiguous whether or not it was LoveAtFirstSight.
* '''Averted''': Bob doesn't help Alice because they have just met.
* '''Enforced''': The executives thought Bob needed a love interest, so they introduced Alice.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Let me see if I get this straight: You've just sworn to protect a girl that you have met a few seconds ago? How many chivalry books have you read?"
* '''Invoked''': Bob wants to become an AscendedFanboy so he looks for a girl worthy of championing.
* '''Exploited''': Aware of Bob's tendencies, Alice plays DecoyDamsel in order to get him to play right into her hands.
* '''Defied''': In an effort to keep Bob to herself, Alice tells Bob about all of Olivia's personality flaws before she introduces them.
* '''Discussed''': "Greetings, milady. By [[TheOrder The Order of Chivalric Tropers]], I will be your champion from now on."
* '''Conversed''': "These MedievalMorons seem to think LoveAtFirstSight is a good enough reason to run off on one SuicideMission after another. For God's sake, he's never even talked to her face-to-face!"
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Bob makes a snap judgment that Alice must be as nice as she looks, only to either be disappointed by her human flaws or ignore them entirely in favor of some idealized image. Alice's irritated at having some stranger declare himself her protector, but decides to [[DecoyDamsel take advantage of his kindness]] anyway.
** Bob only acts as Alice's knight because he's hoping he'll get laid for it.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** Bob immediately falls for Alice, and is willing to accept all of her flaws. Over time, he helps her overcome them and she becomes worthy of his devotion.
** Bob only acts as Alice's knight because he's DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife.
* '''Played For Laughs''': Bob's a bumbling NiceGuy who keeps falling all over himself trying to impress Alice, with little obvious success (at least, to ''him''; it's made clear to the audience that Alice is falling just as hard for him, but is also in serious denial).
* '''Played For Drama''': Alice is horrified by Bob's decision to fight for her, as she's already having difficulty dealing with TheEmpire and doesn't want to draw any further attention to herself. Plus, the empire has powerful [[{{Mooks}} soldiers]], and Bob's just one man; he could wind up getting killed...! Or getting them both killed...!
