* {{Discussed}} in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica.'' When [[TheBigGirl Sayaka]] thinks about using [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor a wish from Kyubey]] to heal her [[ChildhoodFriendRomance childhood friend/crush]] [[ChildProdigy Kyosuke]] of his CareerEndingInjury, [[BigSisterMentor Mami]] spots whiffs of this trope and, via an ArmorPiercingQuestion, warns her that she better make sure this is really a SelflessWish ''and not a subconscious desire to make him eternally grateful and bound to her''. Sayaka goes through with the wish when Kyosuke's depression gets increasingly bad, believing that it would still be WorthIt, and a pre-CharacterDevelopment!Kyouko even says that she should've broken his limbs and made her completely reliant on him instead. How much this is PlayedStraight afterwards is open to debate, given what happens: [[spoiler:Sayaka ''still'' doesn't confess to Kyosuke and keeps quietly loving him from afar partly because she fears this trope and partly because she feels like she must leave her old life behind, so he remains ObliviousToLove and winds up dating Sayaka and Madoka's friend [[YamatoNadeshiko Hitomi]], who actually was completely honest with her feelings towards him. Sayaka falls past the DespairEventHorizon and, after a notably bitter rant to some guys who were being assholes to their girlfriends, [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie turns into a Witch]]]].

** This is Sugou Nobuyuki's attitude toward Asuna throughout the Fairy Dance arc. He even flat-out tells Kirito as such, saying it's his right to take advantage of her and he's entitled to compensation for keeping her and the other SAO survivors alive. Never mind the fact that, as he freely admits, [[AbhorrentAdmirer Asuna has always hated him]].
** As the Phantom Bullet arc progresses, Kyouji Shinkawa asks more and more like a jilted lover toward Shino despite the fact that they aren't even dating. After giving a LoveConfession, he seems annoyed when Shino tells him that she has to focus on the BoB and she will give him an answer later. This reaches a head at the end of the arc when he demands to know what Shino thinks of him and that she promised to be his before he tries to rape her.

* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'': The vain and egotistical hunter Gaston is proud of his reputation as the manliest and most popular guy in town. Therefore, he decides that Belle with her reputation as the most beautiful girl in town is the woman who would look the best as his bride, and he goes so far as to get dressed for his wedding and set up the festivities ''before'' he proposes to her because he is so overconfident that he can take her saying yes for granted. When she makes it clear that she's ''really'' not into him he feels humiliated, and eventually comes up with a villainous plan to ''force'' her to marry him because he's a SoreLoser.

* Tatewaki Kuno from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' believes that his status as heir to the wealthy and aristocratic Kuno clan justifies his pursuit of the [[AbhorrentAdmirer distinctly disinterested]] Akane and [[GenderBender (female)]] Ranma, assuming he doesn't claim that they're the ones into ''him''. Normally, he restricts his affection to bombastic declarations of love, the occasional gaudy gift, and sudden {{glomp}}s with subtle groping. Ironically, after suffering EasyAmnesia, he actually gets ''worse'' about this trait; remembering only that he wants the female Ranma, he begins pursuing her much more forcibly, even attempting to outright rape her.

The ''what they don't do'' type can easily come across as InsaneTrollLogic, but is actually quite reasonable FromACertainPointOfView: the view of a guy who believes that regular male sexuality is mostly about SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny, and that women owe him a debt of gratitude for not being a rapist like those other guys. (Of course, he might even ''be'' a rapist--making the whole thing even more ironic.) Or, the view of a gal who learned to identify a bit too much with MyGirlIsNotASlut. In both cases, the character might come across as a {{Sour Prude}}s.

Compare EntitledBastard, ItsAllAboutMe, and PrinceCharmingWannabe. Contrast SexualExtortion, where the creep backs her demands with threats/"offers" rather than moralizing and guilt-tripping. Compare and contrast WantsAPrizeForBasicDecency, where Bob/Alice expects a reward for acting like a decent person. MaritalRapeLicense is when the person feels s/he is entitled to sex with his/her spouse simply because of that person's status as his/her spouse. If the entitlement reaches extremes in that it can cause the person to commit huge mortal sins/atrocities for the sake of that entitled love, see {{Yandere}}, MurderTheHypotenuse and IfICantHaveYou.

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'': Mutsuki is a trans male with scars and therefore biologically female which attracts a sexual interest from Torso who is attracted to women with scars. He eventually captures and marries him while misgendering him and objectifying Tooru like a LustObject. Once when Tooru rejected him Torso responded by beating him in anger and saying "it's just me a man and you a woman here alone together so you've got no choice but to love me!" He thinks he and Mutsuki are destined to be together and that Mutsuki simply needs to realize that, because they are similar.
** Mutsuki adopts the "force your love in a twisted fashion on your special someone" aspect from Torso and develops these feelings for Sasaki/Kaneki especially after getting jealous when seeing him interact with Touka. He thinks because he is a liar to protect himself and Kaneki/Sasaki is a liar to protect others that they are kindred spirits. Then he mentions that’s why he and not Touka should be with Kaneki. He feels this way about Kaneki initially and can’t comprehend why he is with Touka. In fact he tries to kill Touka a couple times before coming to his senses.

* Played straight, and reversed in ''LightNovel/MyNextLifeAsAVillainessAllRoutesLeadToDoom''. Gerald initially asks to marry Katarina when they're kids so that she can deflect attention from him and act as TheBeard for him, using the scar he accidentally infliced on Katarina as an excuse. In the original ''Fortune Lover'', Katarina played this straight, using the scar as an excuse to keep Gerald on the engagement to her even though it faded after a few years, while Gerald isn't happy with the situation. In the current timeline with reincarnated Katarina, however, Gerald eventually falls in love with her. She, on the other hand, only agreed to get married because she wasn't paying attention ''twice'' and now can't call it off without his consent, with ''Gerald'' using the scar as an excuse to keep the engagement on, even, again, as it faded in a few years. In the present he behaves like she belongs to him as his fiancee, but it's actually pretty obvious that he's just using it as a crutch against his rivals and knows how flimsy the ground he stands on is.

* A complicated case in 1986’s ''Castaway'' (not the Tom Hanks movie), based on the true story of Gerald Kingsland (Creator/OliverReed), a middle-aged London writer who decides to spend a year on a deserted island in the south Pacific, ''Literature/RobinsonCrusoe'' style, and then write a book about it. He places an ad for a "wife" to accompany him, which is answered by the beautiful young Lucy Irvine (Amanda Donohoe). Lucy wants the job and sleeps with Gerald in London to ensure she gets it, and even officially marries him to satisfy immigration requirements. However, once they’re alone on the island, she decides that she doesn’t want to continue the sexual aspect of their relationship. He believes that it was clearly understood by both that part of the reason he wanted her along was for sex, and that she "welched" on the deal after getting what she wanted. She, of course, counters that no matter what she can refuse to sleep with him if she chooses. (The fact that she spends much of their time on the island in no more than a bikini bottom, and often less, only increases his frustration.)

* In ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', Jacob starts to develop this view towards Bella. He argues that he was there for her when Edward was not, and thus she should dump Edward and switch to him. This leads to him forcibly kissing her twice to show her what she's missing, a tactic which works on her. This trope also is implied to be how imprinting operates. When a werewolf imprints on a girl, everyone - from the werewolf himself to the rest of his pack to ''everyone'' who knows about imprinting - expects the girl to come to terms with what's going on and hook up with the werewolf. Jacob even says that while the girl technically has a choice in the matter, he doesn't see why she would choose to turn down the werewolf, because he would make himself into whatever she needs.

She ended her friendship (and any potential romance) in their fifth year, when he became more and more invested in the dark arts and publicly called her a slur, but he never stopped loving her. A good portion of his bullying of Harry was due to him being Lily's son by a man he hated.]]

* In the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' novel ''The Vulcan Academy Murders'', Sendet, a narrow-minded Vulcan, feels that he is the proper mate of T'Mir, despite the fact that neither she nor her family have given him any encouragement. When he finds out that not only has she bonded to someone else, but she has chosen a ''human'', Sendet is so outraged that he attacks the man and attempts to telepathically destroy their bond. His attempt fails, and he is exiled.
* The third book in Scott Lynch's ''Literature/GentlemanBastard'' series at one point puts the reader into the head of an asshole nobleman while he's attempting to rape a poor woman simply because she's there and he's frustrated that his attempts to seduce a "noble" girl (one of the con-artist main characters) are going nowhere, and after all poor people are there to serve the noble's needs. The poor woman kills him in self defense, which starts a plotline about the main characters having to hide his corpse, because the traditional feudalist society they live in (and even some of the older male "good" characters) agrees that she should just have endured it. This whole incident is used by the author [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped to get across the message]] to the presumably largely young and male audience that power inequality and the attitude reflected in this trope (and general sociopathy) is the reason for rape, not anything the woman did or anything inherent in the [[ImAManICantHelpIt male gender]] or impaired judgement due to intoxication.

* There is a ''very'' subtle case of this in ''Series/{{Merlin|2008}}'' between Arthur and Guinevere. After he impulsively kisses her at her house, he tells her that there's no chance for them to ever have a relationship. Later, when she's kidnapped by a local warlord and held for ransom, Arthur defies his father and rushes out to rescue her, telling Merlin all the way there that he and Gwen can't ever be a couple and it's useless to dwell on what can never be. Thing is, he's completely unaware that Lancelot is currently staging his own rescue attempt, and when it becomes obvious that Gwen rather fancies his competition, he immediately gets huffy and tries to save face by saying that he only turned up because Morgana begged him to. So despite what he told Gwen, he actually did expect her to return his feelings, and gets sulky when she takes his words to heart and searches for love elsewhere.
* ''Series/CagneyAndLacey'' episode "Rules of the Game" introduces a high-flying Detective Captain decides that he's entitled to have Chris after she engages in some (very) mild flirting. He threatens her career and even her job itself if she turns him down. He thinks that mild-flirting means that Christine doesn't have the right to turn him down.

** Riley Finn has a few tendancies of this when it comes to Buffy. The entirely of the season four episode "Doomed" is basically him telling Buffy over and over that they'd work amazingly together because they both hunt demons, as if this is a great relationship starting point, and mostly ignores her reasonable arguments against the idea. By the end of the episode she gives in and dates him, but since they're not very compatible outside of their jobs, it's really not a surprise when their relationship blows up in their faces a year later.

** Cronus, on the other hand, is a Nice Guy ([[TradeSnark tm]]) all the way down. He insists that he's a sensitive soul and only wants to be there for everyone and gets very pissed off when they don't want to be around him...but makes it very clear that the only reason he hangs around anyone is because he thinks that means he deserves to sleep with them and doesn't give the slightest shit about their feelings. All of this combined with his refusal to take no for an answer unless there's seriously ''no'' other choice makes for a ''very'' creepy character.

It gets even worse when he sacrifices the game due to her rejection and acts like he deserves her even more because "he sacrificed himself for her" when really he quit because he didn't wanna be there if Sky rejected him.
