->'''Lucy''': You know, there's this classic film called ''Film/TheDefiantOnes'', starring Creator/TonyCurtis and Creator/SidneyPoitier. It's about two prisoners one black, the other white and they escape handcuffed together...\\
'''Brad''': And while they don't like each other at first, they come to respect and care for one another by the end.\\
'''Lucy''': You've seen it.\\
'''Brad''': No, but I know what you're getting at. And I don't want a moral lesson in tolerance and cooperation. I just want to get through the next couple of hours without committing murder.

* Remus and Danger Lupin from the FanFic/Dangerverse are a variant on this trope. Danger's magical bond with Remus allows her to partially suppress his lycanthropy. He still transforms, but he retains his mind and doesn't suffer the usual pre-and-post-transformation sickness. The bond also turns out to give Danger lupus, but the symptoms are suppressed. The problem is that if they go more than about 24 hours without skin-to-skin contact, all the suppressed symptoms of lycanthropy and lupus start coming back at once. Since they are rather spectacularly in love, they went more than a decade before discovering this fact, by which point the accumulated symptoms had already reached lethal levels. They both nearly die before someone figures out what's wrong and brings them into contact. Being, as previously mentioned, spectacularly in love, they don't particularly mind being stuck together in this manner, but it is still a problem that has to be worked around on occasion.

* One time on ''Radio/TheHowardSternShow'', Howard had a woman handcuffed to wack-packer, Jeff the Drunk, for ''FIVE DAYS'' for a large sum of money, and have a camera crew record the results. HilarityEnsues when they end up going to a bar and Jeff gets so drunk he can barely walk. They make it through the five days, and had apparently grown attached, as once they're separated, they both end up getting emotional and start crying. Some time later, Howard tries this stunt again, but with High Pitch Erik instead of Jeff, but this time the woman he's handcuffed to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere wants out after only a couple of hours.]]

* [[TheUrthbloodSaga The Crimson Badger]] contains the mouse/stoat duo of Jans and Broggen, who are a rare ''willing'' example of this trope. The backstory is that Broggen committed a crime in Urthblood's service that should've landed him a death penalty, but Jans took pity on him and saved him from the badger's wrath. Urthblood declared that the stoat would be his responsibility for the rest of his days, and to keep Broggen from getting into further trouble, they decided to chain each other together. In spite of their predicament, they're one of [[BackToBackBadasses best warriors]] in the army. [[spoiler: At the end of TCB, Jans is killed in battle, freeing Broggen from his manacle.]]
* The Chained Melody Universe by Diane Bellomo are a series of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' SlashFic's involving various beligerant crewmembers forced to work together -- HoYay or LesYay ensues.
