Added DiffLines:

* In the German series ''Erotic Tales'' episode "An Elephant Never Forgets", a dwarf rescues a countess from a burning car and is offered a monetary reward, but decides to claim this trope instead. The DistantFinale has the countess bringing her daughter to visit the circus where he works, with the implication that she's his daughter as well.

Added DiffLines:

May involve some version of the phrase "how can I ever repay you?", followed by a knowing smirk from the Hero (especially if he's already a bit of a cad), though in more modern interpretations, the damsel makes it pretty obvious that this is how she ''wants'' to repay him.


Added DiffLines:

** A similar Creator/SethMacFarlane short both lampshades and deconstructs the concept when [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] asks Princess Peach for a kiss after rescuing her from Bowser.
--->'''Peach''' What kind of [[GoodSamaritan Samaritan]] are you? You rescued me just so you could get with me?
--->'''Mario''': Jesus Christ, I'm not asking you to suck my dick, all I want is a kiss!

* In ''Film/VanHelsing'', Friar Carl rescues a townswoman from getting seriously injured by making a diving catch as she falls.

Added DiffLines:

* Referenced and [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the second season finale of ''Series/Sense8'' when [[AbhorrentAdmirer Puck]] helps Sun escape from the police. Once they get back to her hotel room he starts stripping off his clothes while talking about how "traditional male narratives" about situations like this involve the hero getting a reward from the woman he's just rescued. Sun, who's more interested in watching the news report about her escape, wrenches one of his [[AgonyOfTheFeet toes]] back and orders him to go sit in the corner.


* Roger Rabbit gets this as a reward played for laughs in Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit. After Eddie defeats the BigBad and rescues Jessica and Roger from the Dip machine Jessica scoops Roger up in her arms and smothers him in SmoochOfVictory kisses and swoons over his “bravery”, much to the annoyance of Eddie. She later seductively promises to [[GRatedSex bake Roger a “carrot cake”]] when they get home. Her sensual delivery implies [[RetargetedLust she wants to have]] GladToBeAliveSex with Roger instead of her actual rescuer.

* ''Series/{{Rome}}''. After stabbing to death an assassin in front of her, legionary Titus Pullo claims that Cleopatra gave him a hot look. Maybe he was right because she does have enthusiastic sex with him that night, albeit for political reasons -- she wants to have a child with Julius Caesar, and is hedging her bets that she'll have one. Later Cleopatra plays up her submissiveness and gratitude to seduce Caesar. "You redeemed me from captivity. I am...your slave."

Added DiffLines:

* One clip on ''Series/WorldsDumbest'' features a cheesy homemade porno in which a geeky guy saves a Hungarian girl from a ridiculously fake python and then offers to show her another "snake".
--> '''Mike Trainor:''' Spoiler alert: it's his penis!


* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. In "R.A.M", Mr. Dillinger has sex with Haley, a [[VictimOfTheWeek POI]] whom he saves from hitmen. This serves as an EstablishingCharacterMoment since seducing a POI is something the audience knows John Reese would '''never''' do.
-->'''Mr. Dillinger:''' You've had a very traumatic experience. You probably shouldn't be on your own right now. I don't know about you, Haley, but I could use a drink.\\

Added DiffLines:

** In "6,741", Root offers to "repay the favor" of Sameen Shaw's HoldTheLine sacrifice that saved her life and led to Shaw's capture. Of course Root has been [[LesYay flirting constantly]] with Shaw since the moment [[MasochismTango she first stunned Shaw with a taser]], so it's not really out of character. Shaw isn't in the mood, but reconsiders and they have a PreClimaxClimax instead.
