Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A form of Meet Cute, where two characters who inevitably end up becoming friends/comrades/lovers first meet in this very uncordial way. One of the characters, normally through a misunderstanding, ends up taking the other character hostage/kidnapping them. Their interactions are normally played for comedy, with plenty of snarking and arguing. If they're together for a while, it's expected that somewhere along the line, the hostage ends up developing feelings for and grows attached to their kidnapper, seeing signs that the kidnapper is not all bad. Whether or not initially they are on opposing sides depends, but it normally ends with either one of them defecting to the "correct" side.
If it's more on the side of romance instead of plain friendship, expect a point where the kidnapper lets the captive go, only for the captive to often decide to stay with the kidnapper. This can occasionally seem forced, since people often forget the most important factor in a Stockholm relationship — the act interpreted by the captive as kindness.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The implications of this frequently make it an Unequal Pairing.
Compare Abduction Is Love when the kidnapping is done for the purpose of mating and romance ensues nonetheless. Contrast Rescue Romance and Bodyguard Crush.
Not about matches made in the capital of Sweden, though this trope can still apply over there.

The main romance in Haou Airen is this, except it's played for Fanservice and melodrama instead of humor, with naive high-schooler Kurumi getting kidnapped (among other things) by Triad boss Bastard Boyfriend Hakuron after she saved him from bleeding to death in the streets of Tokyo.

Empowered meets her Love Interest and her best friend this way; they were both punch clock villains who were already bored of the gig anyway.
The Caged Demonwolf might be going through a bit of this as well. He's stuck on Emp's coffee table and can't do a thing about it, but still counts all the people he's trapped with as friends; if begrudgingly so.

It's not a romantic example, but this kind of situation going horribly wrong is the basic plot of the Korean movie Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. Deaf guy and his communist girlfriend tries to kidnap boss' daughter to get money to buy his sister a new kidney. The kid is extremely cute and everything seems to go fine… until the kid drowns accidentally, which sets the boss off on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge. In the end, it's a Kill 'Em All ending.

Elektra and Renard in The World Is Not Enough are a villainous version of this. He kidnapped her, and she seduced him when her father wouldn't pay the ransom. It is strongly implied that Elektra is ultimately just using Renard to fulfil her own evil agenda, meaning she was a Poisonous Captive and he a Jerkass Woobie; Renard may even realize this, but since he is dying anyway, he'll take what he can get. She quite openly intends to find another man (possibly just as another lovestruck pawn) once Renard has sacrificed himself to carry out her scheme, and she teases Renard (and James Bond himself) that it might even be Bond.

In Fullmetal Alchemist, Al first meets with Greed and his chimera underlings by being kidnapped by them. Granted, he never really becomes friends with Greed, but… Greed (and especially his underlings) are portrayed as being pretty sympathetic and not actually all that evil. And their interactions were hilarious. All in all, they actually treated Al pretty decent for a hostage captive. And in the end, Al definitely bonded with and liked the two underlings Dorochet and Martel. Which made their deaths all the more tragic.

In Blue Moon, Eleazar's description makes it clear that the relationship between Francesca and Antonius was an example of this, as Francesca was a vampire slayer and Antonius was the Volturi guard who captured her. However, after Aro had Francesca turned, Antonius was the only other person who regularly visited the apparently insane Francesca in captivity, with Eleazar recalling that Antonius cared for Francesca far more than he should have done given their history. When Aro finally decided to have her killed, Antonius helped Francesca fake her death and escape, sacrificing his position in the Volturi and drinking animal blood rather than human blood to help Francesca adjust to her new state.

The Sorcerer's Daughter is a retelling of Swan Lake with a romantic relationship between Rothbart and Odette. It is shown budding when Odette's still under his curse and unable to leave his lake. Justified, since he is revealed to be a Driven to Villainy Gentleman and a Scholar and she is an Adaptational Jerkass compared to the ballet version, most notably taunting him into cursing her, and after the curse is lifted it takes almost an entire book for them to come to terms with their feelings and get together.

In Gankutsuou, the series is pretty much jump-started by Albert getting kidnapped by Peppo and the gang she's a part of and held hostage for ransom. They later develop a mutual crush on each other while he's in captivity, although Albert's crush ceases when he finds out that "she" is a he. They still stay friends, though.

Hayate the Combat Butler: At least kidnapping was Hayate's original plan. Having always been a Messiah-esque, wonderful little boy, he ends up getting taken advantage of to the point where he gets fed up with optimistic ideas. He decides to finally "become a devil" and do something evil to get money. So he sets his sights on kidnapping Nagi, the rich little Ojou. Only… at every opportunity to do something evil, he ends up going back to his selfless, old habits, and treats her very nicely. To the point where his declaration that he wants to "run away with her (by kidnapping her)" causes her to misunderstand that he's confessing that he wants to elope with her. And she liked it…

Candayce thinks this is what's going on in Dinoverse, when her Leptoceratops admirers abduct her away from the company of the other kids-in-dinosaur-bodies.

In the movie Red, Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) has developed a relationship over the phone with a young insurance agent. Unfortunately he's a retired CIA agent and when he's put on a wet team's hit list, has to kidnap her in order to save her life. As she points out, it wasn't the first date she had in mind. And she thought he'd have hair. Notably, the kidnapping doesn't improve their relationship, it nearly destroys it. It's only when she realize that Frank is right and there really are people trying to kill them that it starts to improve.

A friendship version of this is found in Ruthless People, where the poor, young couple Sandy and Ken kidnap millionaire Danny DeVito's wife (Bette Midler), hoping to hold her hostage for ransom (since DeVito had conned them out of their savings and stole Sandy's fashion ideas). Of course, it turns out that DeVito wants his wife dead, since he has a new flame that he's having an affair with. It turns out that Sandy and Ken are actually insanely nice people, and have the hardest time pretending to be villainous kidnappers. Bette Midler, being the loud-mouthed, violent and bossy woman, ends up being more aggressive and scarier than them. Later, she ends up seeing what gentle and kind people they are, and they end up becoming friends, joining together to bring down her evil husband.

Buffalo 66 depicts a man kidnapping Christina Ricci in order to fool his parents into thinking he has a girlfriend. She warms up to him quickly, which may invoke this trope. Then again, he proves to be mostly harmless almost immediately and she is more or less free to go once his parents meet her so she may just have genuinely liked him.

Part of the backstory to A Brother's Price involves the Whistlers, a band of soldier-spy True Companions calling themselves sisters, kidnapping a prince and taking him home with them, much to his dismay. Since not long after that that entire side of the prince's family was executed for treason, he decided there wasn't much point to going back. Later such 'husband raids' became illegal.
He did grow fond of his initially involuntary wives, who did their best to treat him well and keep him as happy as they could.

Scrooge McDuck and Glittering Goldie in Carl Barks' "Back to the Klondike." Barks himself couldn't believe what he'd implied after Disney's censors pointed it out to him and fully understood why they initially censored the story. Don Rosa, on the other hand, went into even more details about the month Scrooge held Goldie captive working on his gold claim in "The Prisoner of White Agony Creek," even adding a Destructo-Nookie scene. Ya know, for kids!

New Tricks: In "Trust Me", UCOS investigates a missing person case originally believed to be a kidnapping that probably ended in murder. However, when they discover the missing woman, she turns out to be married to her 'kidnapper' and the two have a child together. It turns out that the kidnapper had originally snatched the woman as part of an ill-thought out plan of revenge against the woman's mother. However, the woman hated her mother and been thinking about running away, so just went along with him. The two of them fell in love and got married.

Guts ends up temporarily taking her hostage (only to get shot and then captured by Farnese's group). Later, in order to escape, he ends up kidnapping and holding her hostage again, this time with more funny and amusing interactions between the two of them than the previous time (including a moment where he threatens to "burn her ass" if the soldiers don't make way). During this time period, her future infatuation and admiration of him is foreshadowed and hinted at. Of course, it wouldn't be Berserk if that foreshadowing didn't take the form of Farnese being possessed by an evil spirit, straddling Guts BFS naked, and urging him in a very Squickily sexual manner to slice her in half with it… slowly.

In Jennifer Fallons' Tide Lords Quartet series, the heroine is kidnapped by the prisoner she's escorting. She'd decided to let him loose in order to prove that he was delusional and not the all-powerful god he thought he was. Turned out she was wrong.

On Archer, Cheryl rapidly becomes sexually attracted to Pam after the latter takes her hostage during a coke-fueled rampage, though she just as rapidly loses interest after said rampage finally comes to an end. It's worth noting that this is entirely in character for Cheryl, who has admitted that she is sexually aroused by violence and abuse, particularly when it's directed at her.

In Noob, this happened between two characters whose mere acquaitance is a spoiler for the webseries and novel versions of the story: Master Zen and Nazetrîme. The player behind Master Zen is an escaped prisonner and ended up hiding in a house that belonged to Nazetrîme's player. When the player behind Nazetrîme came home, Master Zen's tied her up to keep from being discovered. Stockholm syndrome hit Nazetrîme's player at some point and she turned out to be a regular player of the MMORPG in which the story is set. Meanwhile, Master Zen was trying to start a new guild with his ex-cellmate and a woman he befriended while in jail, and was a player short for this to be possible. The two became the franchise's first Official Couple (or at least one-way crush) barring a The Not-Love Interest situation involving one of the protagonists and one of the top players.

On General Hospital, Emily and Zander's relationship began with him kidnapping her—he was desperate to escape capture for a murder he'd been falsely accused of. They began to bond during the ordeal when she learned why he had taken her and she ended up losing her virginity to him.

Alexis Carew: Mutineer: Imprisoned by culturally French Hanoverese naval forces after HMS Hermione's mutineers sail her to the Berry March (Alsace-Lorraine IN SPACE!), Alexis befriends Lieutenant Delaine Thiebaud while arranging better treatment for the crew (who, not being officers, cannot give parole and be housed in the town), and falls in love with him. He later provides evidence exonerating her of the mutiny at Court Martial and showing the extenuating circumstances, and in The Little Ships she seeks him out to gain the Berry March fleet's help against Hanover and loses her virginity with him.

Star Wars: The Old Republic:
In the Backstory, Darth Malgus obtained a Twi'lek slave named Eleena Daru. He used her as a Sex Slave and for various other tasks, but Malgus became as fond of her as a Sith could be, to the point of considering her his common law wife. Eleena loved Malgus, even though he was a Sith, her owner, and he used her a a punching bag when he got angry. The two of them even fought side by side at the sack of the Courscant Jedi Temple. But Eleena was injured and one of Malgus's fellow Sith pointed out she was a weak point for Malgus. Malgus killed his "wife" in her sickbed without any repercussions. He was a high ranking Sith, after all, and she was just a Twi'lek Sex Slave.
The male Sith Warrior can invoke this with both romantic options. Vette is similar to Eleena, down to being a Twi'lek slave assigned to the Warrior. The Warrior, like Malgus, can treat her nicely, win her affection, and make her his common-law wife - though she's still his slave as far as Imperial law is concerned. (Considering the position of Twi'leks in the Empire, it's dubiously better to be a high-ranking Sith's property than a citizen. A Sith could kill either one for any reason with no consequence) The other method is to Corrupt the Cutie and turn Jaesa into an Ax-Crazy lunatic who worships you after you break her sanity and take her as an apprentice.
The male Sith Inquisitor can also invoke this with Ashara. The Inquisitor needs her help to contact the Force Ghost of her ancestor, so he engineers her fall from the Jedi (like Jaesa), though the player doesn't really turn her into a crazed lunatic like Dark Side Jaesa. Having nowhere else to go, he takes her as an informal apprentice and she develops a crush on the Inquisitor from there.

In Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, the plot revolves around Monkey, who has been fitted with a Slave Collar by hacker girl Trip so they can communicate, and to force him to help her cause. Before the final battle, when Trip takes the Slave Collar off so he can be free, Monkey tells her to put it back on.

Kinda weird version in the Star Trek novel Final Frontier (not The Final Frontier, but rather the one by Diane Carey): Jim Kirk's father, George, meets and befriends Romulan field-primus t'Cael Zaniidor Kilyle this way. First, the Federation knows nothing about the Romulans at this time, and assumes them to be reptilian. George arranges to meet with the Romulan's commander on a little planet/moon. When he gets there, he sees a "Vulcan" sitting between two helmeted guards, and assumes a hostage situation. So he grabs t'Cael, fends the guards off with his phaser, gets them to cover, and then hands t'Cael a second phaser in case he needs it, ignoring any possible threat from t'Cael (turning his back to watch for the guards) and leaving t'Cael utterly flabbergasted.
They become teammates and eventually friends after an officer back on the ship disobeys orders and fires on the planet in an attempted assassination.

In the movie The Running Man (starring Arnold Schwarzenegger), right in the beginning, while Richard is a fugitive who escaped from labor camp, he goes to his brother's apartment. There, he finds Amber Mendez, who is the current tenant there. Richard ends up kidnapping her, and was planning to go to Hawaii. Their interactions are played for laughs, though she ends up managing to alert airport security before his plan works. Later, however, she ends up getting captured and forced to participate in the "Running Man" show, where she ends up realizing that Richard isn't a bad guy, and becomes his official love interest.

In the Hitman movie, 47 initially kidnaps Nika, stuffs her in the trunk with a dead body, drives across Russia with her in there, pulls her out of a restaurant by her hair, and threatens to torture and kill her. She seems strangely attracted to him. It blends with Rescue Romance and Bodyguard Crush as the body was of the man sent to kill her, and the final scene shows how he killed another Agent sent to kill her. Despite her interest, 47 rejects her advances. It should be noted that he is typically believed to be Asexual.

In Mahou Sensei Negima!, Natsumi enters into the plot with a naked Kotarou behind her and a few inches from digging his claws into her neck (stop thinking those dirty thoughts), Kotarou was just scared after passing out and waking in a strange room.

A Song of Ice and Fire
Kevan Lannister first met his future wife Dorna Swyft when she was a noble hostage at the court of Kevan's brother Tywin. Given that noble hostages could get killed if their families got uppity this presumably put a strain on their initial relationship, though at the current stage their marriage is described as nothing but loving.
Jon Snow initially meets Ygritte this way by capturing her during an attack on her scouting party, though due to Values Dissonance Ygritte starts off thinking Jon taking her captive means he's interested while Jon simply wasn't able to kill a woman who wasn't actively trying to kill him. By the time they do get together their power dynamic is essentially reversed by Ygritte being Jon's Secret Keeper and basically blackmailing him into sex.

A serious example in Three Days of the Condor. The protagonist takes a random woman hostage so he can have a place to hole up that isn't connected to him. She ends up sleeping with him. Though the movie does try to explain her psychological reasons for doing so, one can't help thinking it's more a case of Stockholm Syndrome than anything else. Unlike other examples however, she leaves him before the end of the movie, implying it was more in the nature of a dangerous fling with a stranger than anything else.

Although the hostage part does seem to be intended as temporary at the start — he offers her the last of a magical candle so she can go back to the sky, after he shows her to Victoria.

The Taming of the Shrew is pretty much this trope personified; he makes her his prisoner and torments her until she falls in love with him. Though some would say that he makes her his prisoner and uses several techniques that are still used today for "interrogation" (read: torture) and brainwashing until he breaks her spirit.

Ziggzagged in Once Upon a Time: This universe has a version of Beauty and the Beast where Rumplestiltskin is the beast. He lets her go and she wasn't going to come back, but does so to see if True Love's Kiss does revert him to human. It turns out that they do have true love, but the spell doesn't work due to Rumple's cowardice. Their budding relationship goes south very quickly when Belle mentions that she heard of the rumor from a woman on the road… who happens to be Regina. Regina herself actually lampshades this trope while manipulating Belle into attempting to depower Rumple. However, this trope is averted by season two when Belle has more equal footing in the relationship.

Flashpoint has this in "The Planets Aligned", where a young girl was kidnapped for eight years and suffers Stockholm Syndrome, and behaves in an affectionate manner to her capturer. It's also played seriously, in that the relationship has warped her terribly.

"Beauty and the Beast" has Beauty agree to stay with the Beast because he threatened to kill her father for stealing one of his roses if she didn't take his place and she, of course, falls in love with him — which was the Beast's secret intention all along, as he needed a woman to love him to break his curse. Whether or not this could qualify as Stockholm Syndrome varies from telling to telling, though it should be noted that almost all tellings have the Beast willingly let Beauty go back to her family at some point and she doesn't come back to him (and in some cases, even forgets her promise to return within a set time) until she learns his life is in danger.

In The Red Vixen Adventures it's notable that when the Red Vixen kidnaps Rolas, she's more attracted to him than vice-versa. Until he starts dating her true identity.

In Dark Shores Teriana is basically kidnapped and forced to help Marcus and his legions conquer her homeland. Because Marcus worries about her safety, he also forces her to share a cabin on a ship and then a tent with him — and they gradually fall in love. Non-romantically, Teriana also becomes friends with other legionnaires, especially her bodyguards Quintus and Miki.

Something of this sort happens in National Treasure with Abigail Chase ending up tagging along with Nicholas Cage.

Non-romantic example from the Belisarius Series. When Kungas met Shakuntala for the first time he was her jailor. Of course this was helped a lot by the fact that the first thing he did before taking her into custody was to carve into tidbits some fellow soldiers who were acting in a somewhat undisciplined manner toward her.

In Heart of Steel, cyborg Mad Scientist Alistair captures Julia when she and her boyfriend are scuba divign off the coast of Shark Reef Isle where Alistair lives. Alistair is instantly smitten with her and wants to keep her, showering her with gifts and other luxuries. However, it takes a while for Julia to see the man under the metal, a process sped up when one of Alistair's creations (Julia's boyfriend-turned cyborg) goes rampant and tries to kill them both, spurring Alistair to protect her.
