The Abridged Series]]
This is a kissing trope most common in anime and manga; the setting is a
bedroom, or simply a place to rest, and two characters, one often
harboring unrequited feelings for the other.
The premise is that one character is unconscious, whether previously
knocked out, feverish, ConvenientComa comatose, or simply asleep;
the other falls for '[[BeautifulDreamer their attractive sleeping
face]]', and unable to resist, leans in to lock lips...
This situation will progress differently depending on the genre of the
series, and the status of the characters. They may or may not pull it
off, resulting in an IndirectKiss, FirstKiss, etc., or they may be
interrupted by MomentKiller another character bursting in, usually
including a guilty start.
It is not unknown for the other person to be feigning sleep when they
realize that the character might kiss them.
Frequently used in Template:Shojo series and Template:Shonen love comedies, where
the girl's vulnerability seems irresistible to the male character. This
trope is fairly gender-equitable, though, as girls are also prone to
this urge. In RealLife, it is known as somnophilia.
SisterTrope to ConverseWithTheUnconscious.
Contrast KissOfLife, which is often mistaken for this.

* HotGimmick: On one occasion, Hatsumi passes out drunk next to
Ryoki. He takes this as an invitation to start groping and stripping her.
* In SailorMoon, Tuxedo Mask finds a drunken, passed out Usagi (who
took booze by mistake while infiltrating a ball). Knowing exactly what
to do with a TheDrunkenSailor Drunken Sailor, he kisses her. A later
episode in the series seems to acknowledge it as well when Usagi asks
Mamoru if he remembers their first kiss. Mamoru suddenly acts very
awkward and pretends he can't remember.
** Given that DeathIsCheap he had died once or twice between these
events, he may really not remember. Also, in the S movie, Luna
(while still in cat form) kisses Kakeru when he is asleep, and it's
perfectly okay. Goes to show the DoubleStandard...
* Parodied in [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi
Suzumiya]], during the student film episode "The Adventures of Asahina
Mikuru". The star is Mikuru as the battle waitress from the future, who
faints at one point and is carried to the home of Itsuki Koizumi, her
in-movie love-interest. After putting her to bed, he silently
deliberates over this, and gets very close to kissing her. She is
acting, though, and uncomfortably aware of it. He is belatedly
interrupted by Yuki Nagato's character, although there was a good chance
of our completely disgruntled cameraman (and in-series narrator) Kyon
disrupting the scene. And that's not the only creepy part... As Kyon
points out, after she is knocked unconscious, Koizumi took her to his
house instead of calling an ambulance, undressed her, bathed her, and
then redressed her before trying to kiss her.
*** Only in Kyon's narration of the student film. In the actual
production, they all went to Tsuruya's house, and it was the other girls
who got Mikuru's clothes changed and [[spoiler:put liquor in her juice
to get her dizzy.]]
** In the novels and the rerun added episodes, this scene is slightly
less humorous: Tsuruya and Haruhi spiked Mikuru's drink in order to
'improve her acting', which Kyon realizes from Mikuru's lack of
resistance; he refuses to keep filming, and it's the only scene in the
series where he becomes seriously angry with Haruhi, to the point of
almost DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu socking her in the face without
realizing it before Koizumi stops him.
** In the Template:GagSub The Adventures of Yuki Nagato, "the narrator"
directly references this trope.
---> Narrator: The hell?!? DUDE! That's creepy! She's, like, in a
coma or something!
*** Or, in the words of Yuki Nagato (sort of) herself: "You weren't
going to kiss her, were you? 'Cuz she's unconscious. That would be
** Mikuru actually invokes this trope on herself in Bamboo Leaf
Rhapsody. After she and Kyon travel back to [[ArcWords three years
ago]], she falls unconscious. Her own future self appears and tells Kyon
what to do. As a reward she says that he can kiss her (still
unconscious) younger self if he wants to. I'm sure a lawyer, a
philosopher, and a quantum physicist could have great fun getting drunk
and discussing the ethical implications of this scenario.
* Template:Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun: Shungo nearly does this to
Reika, thinking it necessary to revive her. When she wakes up in his
arms minutes later: "What are you doing, Ninomiya Shungo?! Don't tell
me you've been doing ThisAndThat while I was unconscious? ...Actually,
do it while I can remember!"
** She herself attempts to do this to Shungo, and possibly other things.
Except he defends himself against her while he's sleeping.
* TokyoMewMew: Happens more than once, and always with an
IntimateHealing explanation. However, even without said
explanations, they're treated as some of the most romantic moments in
the entire series .
* In BladeOfTheImmortal, Rin is harboring a reverse BodyguardCrush
for her bodyguard Manji, so when he passes out after a particularly
exhausting adventure she takes the opportunity to plant one of these on him.
* Subverted in Template:Naruto Shippuden 68 as Fuka gave Naruto a "Kiss
of Death" while he was unconscious. Then he woke up and was observing
that blood in her hair was still there and then Naruto pulled her hair
later which lead to her defeat. (Her age is unknown so I assumed that
she lived for a long time).
* "Slayers Next": Zelgadis, due to being 1/3rd Golem (he's also 1/3rd
Demon and 1/3rd Human) is forced to become a ship's 'anchor' in order
for Lina to catch a lake dragon. This, however, does not go very well
the first few times, and Zelgadis ends up unconscious and seemingly
drowned. However, at Amelia's suggestion of administering CPR, we see
that Zelgadis is in fact, awake, or had just awakened, due to him
blushing at the scenario of Amelia planting her lips on his, even if
it's to save his life...however, when he cracks his eyes open, instead
of Amelia, it's the elderly Chef who is about to administer the 'kiss of
life', and he lays one right on poor Zelgadis.
* NeonGenesisEvangelion: Shinji deliberates on kissing Asuka when
she sleepwalks into his bed. He eventually changes his mind when she
calls out for her mother but that doesn't stop Asuka from accusing him
of doing it.
** She did not "accuse" him of doing it. She told she was joking, and
when his answer implied he had kissed her, she was shocked and appaled.
** Reversed (and a common cry by the audience) in End of Evangelion
when Shinji doesn't kiss her but instead [[spoiler:
ADateWithRosiePalms masturbates over Asuka's comatose body. Even he
points out that he is "The lowest of the low". The dubbed version has
Shinji say, "I am so PrecisionFStrike fucked up."]] [[spoiler:
It's sometimes implied that he used HER hand to 'do the deed'.]]
* In Anime/Template:Mai-HiME, Shizuru gives in to her
SchoolgirlLesbians repressed feelings for Natsuki and kisses her
while she sleeps off her injuries. A few seconds later, [[spoiler:Haruka
and Yukino]] pop out from the nearby bushes to call her out for it.
** Considering the silhouette flashbacks of Shizuru undressing, the
implication is that she did a bit more than kissing.
*** It is under heavy debate whether that was a flashback or a
visualization of the worst possible case. The writers have [[ShrugOfGod
refused to elaborate.]]
* MarmaladeBoy subverts this a bit. Miki is actually not
unconscious when Yuu kisses her in the infirmary; she actually
pretended to be unconscious to not have her DeadpanSnarker of a
future step-sibling asking anything uncomfortable or mocking her for
getting a basketball to the face in PE class. It didn't work, of course.
** Subverted further still when later on Yuu confesses that he knew she
wasn't really unconscious.
* LoveHina did all the examples; Naru was angry Keitaro tried it,
later became angry he didn't try it, then almost did it herself. The
UnwantedHarem provide commentary.
* Occurred in one episode of the second Template:Patlabor Template:OVA in a
rather touching scene with Captains Gotoh and Nagumo sharing a motel room.
* The MahouSenseiNegima manga uses this a fair number of times,
mostly at the expense of AdorablyPrecociousChild poor little Negi.
Twice straight, as a person considers or attempts making a Pactio
with him (which involves kissing), and a couple of straight reversions,
in which a person gets kissed by the sleeper.
** Chapter 253 plays it straight with Natsumi about debating about
whether to kiss a sleeping Kotaro. She [[spoiler: actually tries to do
it, but gets interrupted by Haruna.]]
** And of course, in 286 Chamo tries egging on four different girls
to do it at once, spoiler:two of whom have a crush on him while in
front of Chisame. [[BrickJoke But an innocent Yuuna claims getting a
pactio from him while he's asleep would be boring and cowardly.]]
* Played for laughs in the Anime/ExcelSaga intro, when Watanabe
almost does this to IllGirl Hyatt, but she slams him into a wall.
* In KannazukiNoMiko Chikane kisses an unconscious Himeko as a
** Of course Himeko fades into conciousness just when this occurs, but
fades back out more or less right away.
** Happy birthday...
* Subverted beautifully by Manga/HayateTheCombatButler anime: Nagi
attempts to have her (presumably) FirstKiss with Hayate while he's
asleep. Naturally, he suddenly opens his eyes at the last moment and
completely SelectiveObliviousness misinterprets the situation. Cue
RelaxOVision violent off screen pummeling by [[Template:Tsundere irate
** In Ch. 360 of the manga, Hayate himself appears to be doing this to
Hinagiku after she falls asleep in his room. Thankfully it wasn't Nagi
who walked in so he was probably able to explain that he was simply
moving her someplace more appropriate for her to sleep.
* AngelSanctuary: Setsuna kisses Sara in her sleep. It's bonus
points, as they happen to be BrotherSisterIncest blood siblings.
And their mother catches him in the act.
** This is also a subversion, in that Sara was really awake but
pretended to be asleep because she wanted Setsuna to kiss her.
* In YuYuHakushos first arc, during the time in which Yuusuke was
technically dead (although his inert body was given pseudo-life in order
to preserve it), Keiko has to kiss him in order to revive him in a kind
of spiritual CPR.
** Before that, Keiko almost kisses his unconscious body while he
invisibly and fervently protests, but is interrupted by an announcement
from the Neighborhood Watch Committee that kicks her back to her senses.
--> [[YuYuHakushoAbridged Attention, everyone! This is the Neighborhood
Watch Committee, reminding everyone that necrophilia is still illegal!
Thank you, and have a pleasant day!]]
* In Manga/AiYoriAoshi, Tina and Kaoru are forced to spend a night
in a love hotel (chaste, since they're JustFriends only friends), on
account of rain and having missed the homebound trains. While Kaoru is
asleep, Tina silently debates with herself about kissing him. Judging
from her thoughts the next day, she went through with it several times
(and seemed alternately happy, but regretful at taking advantage of
him). Kaoru didn't notice.
** Tina and Aoi have each kissed a sleeping Kaoru on several occasions,
starting ToyShip when Aoi and Kaoru were toddlers. Aoi usually told
Kaoru about it afterward. Tina, CannotSpitItOut for whatever reason,
** Also, those BedmateReveals indicate that the girls living in the
manor have no qualms about entering Kaoru's room, climbing into his bed,
and cuddling up with him - all while he's fast asleep.
* When Souichi in TheTyrantFallsInLove becomes so drunk that he
forgets to lock the door to his bedroom before going to sleep, Morinaga
decides that this is the perfect opportunity to steal a few kisses from
him. Souichi's murmuring of Morinaga's name in his sleep only stimulates
Morinaga into performing increasingly more explicit actions...until
Souichi wakes up. Cue ArmorPiercingSlap.
* In the manga HappyHustleHigh Yasuaki kisses Hanabi when she's
passed out drunk, thinking "She looks so innocent... guess she feels
safe around me. Her mistake!" She actually told him she loved him while
sleeptalking. On the other hand, the 'waking up naked under the same
blanket' bit was just a prank played on them by a friend who didn't
approve of them skipping school to play video games.
* In Template:Manga/FAKE, Dee insists on keeping an eye on Ryo when the
latter falls ill. When Dee finds that Ryo has fallen asleep, he takes a
moment to thank the Lord for this opportunity, and leans in. Ryo wakes
up when their lips meet (Dee has his eyes closed, so he doesn't realize
that Ryo awoke), is ticked off at first, but then decides that being
kissed by Dee isn't so bad after all, and even closes his eyes again.
* Ayane in Anime/GateKeepers21 is kissed [[ConvenientComa while
comatose]] by BigBad StalkerWithACrush Yuurei Shoujo, while the former's
boss and partner watch helplessly. Made more disturbing by the fact
that, as her name implies, she was a ghost, and at the same time,
appeared much younger than the person she was molesting.
* Gender-flipped in MazingerZ. Kouji Kabuto is seriously injured
after he has an actually serious fight with his partner Sayaka (they
usually have SlapSlapKiss fights, but this one gets worse) and she
refuses to back him up in battle. A grief-stricken Sayaka takes care of
him in the hospital and later kisses him in his comatose sleep.
** Played straight in the manga version penned by GosakuOta, when
spoiler:Boss kissed an unconscious Sayaka before leaving for battle,
thinking he was going to die.
* After their second kiss in Template:Fruits Basket, [[spoiler:Kyo admits
to Tohru that he FirstKiss first kissed her while she was
unconscious]]. To be fair, [[spoiler:Tohru actually did regain
consciousness and say some comforting words to him when she noticed he
was crying. He simply didn't realize that she'd once again fainted
before he kissed her]].
* Koizumi in Template:Lovely Complex falls asleep while attempting to
memorize a menu for her waiting job. Completely taken in by her
less-than-graceful face, Kohori can't help but lean in for a kiss.
Doesn't help that Otani NotWhatItLooksLike just so happens to catch
him in the act, either.
* BoysLove example: Narrowly averted in the beginning of OkaneGaNai,
Kanou almost kisses Ayase, who is unconscious and drugged at the time.
After deciding against it he ends up opting for [[VictimFallsForRapist
forcing himself on Ayase as a way to express his affection]].
* In SchoolRumble, in a flashback, [[spoiler: Harima almost does
this to Tenma after he rescues her from some lecherous thugs, but he
can't quite muster the courage. However, she does wake up while he's
hovering over her, leading her to assume the worst, smack him, and leave
with a very obligatory "Thank you." This results in Harima growing a
beard and wearing sunglasses so that she won't recognize him]], thus
explaining his current appearance.
* In ChronoCrusade, Chrono comes down with a fever, and Rosette is
told by a fortune teller [[IntimateHealing that the way to cure a fever
is to kiss the ill person]]. Rosette finally gets the courage to try it
on Chrono while he's sleeping.
* Near the end of MacrossFrontier, Luca kisses the comatose Nanase
before leaving to fight the final battle. [[spoiler: He gets back just
in time to see her wake up.]]
* AxisPowersHetalia has England being almost [[BlackComedyRape
molested]] by his SitcomArchEnemy France, when he's bedridden because of
a really bad cold. However, America walks on them and France has to
* Subverted in DetectiveConan. [[spoiler:Takagi looked like he was
passed out during file 637, a bit before Sato kissed him. He was
perfectly conscious afterward. The Shonen Tantei Dan had used the excuse
that Takagi had just taken medication before, so Sato and Takagi
actually got to kiss, instead of the usual issue where they almost kiss,
but always fail.]]
* In the Template:Manhwa ThreadsOfTime, AxCrazy Sali Tayi doesn't
really kiss the coma-induced Sa-Lum so much as he just out-and-out rapes
her. Even his own soldiers pretty much have a "Dude, she's like, in a
coma!" moment. And he wonders why [[Template:Tsundere Atan Hadas]] doesn't
* In HidamariSketch, LovableSexManiac Yoshinoya-sensei can be
stopped just barely before she kisses Hiro, who is unconscious after
she severely bumped her head. Of course, given
RomanticTwoGirlFriendship Sae is present...
* Happens in White Album when Touya falls asleep during his tutoring
gig. His student almost kisses him when he's asleep (in a cute little
attendance to detail she actually pulls back her pigtails to keep them
from brushing his face).
* In FullMetalPanic, Kaname AlmostKiss almost kisses Sousuke
after he fell asleep when she finished cutting his hair. She restrains
herself, however, because she felt embarrassed that she would want to
take advantage of him in his sleep. So instead, she stops herself by
[[Template:Tsundere dunking his head in water]].
** Tessa, on the other hand, has no qualms about trying to take
advantage of Sousuke while he's sleeping. The first time, she actually
does manage to sneak into his bed. The second time, however, she's
shown to quietly try to sneak to him, only to be caught by Mao (who
proceeds to handcuff herself to her, so as to make sure she doesn't try
anything funny with Sousuke while he's unconscious).
** Tessa also tries to kiss him in Fumoffu when he was dragged
unconscious out of the school pool after belly-flopping in to try and
save her. She loudly and dramatically declares that he needs CPR and as
she leans in to put her mouth to his, Kaname pulls her back by the hair
and angrily points out that he doesn't need it.
** While in The Second Raid OVA ("The Battlegroup Commander's Sort
of Boring Day") Mao is seen LesYay groping Tessa's breasts after
she'd passed out from drinking too much. [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Imagine for a
moment]] DoubleStandard if this were Kurz instead of Mao...
* In GirlFriends, Mari first kisses Akko after Akko unexpectedly
** This happens again near the end of the series.
* Lampshaded and averted in EurekaSeven: Talho jokingly accused
Renton of wanting to "do lewd things" to the sleeping Eureka.
* In RozenMaiden, spoiler:Shinku kisses Jun on the cheek before
spoiler:leaving to battle Suigintou.
* In HanaKimi, [[spoiler:after Sano RescueRomance rescues Mizuki
from AttemptedRape being raped, they fall off a cliff and Mizuki
sprains her ankle. Later, she develops a bad fever and passes out. Sano
kisses her while she's unconscious and takes care of her until help
* In IchigoMashimaro, when Miu convinces the group to dress up and
sneak into Matsuri's house on Christmas Eve to "preserve her innocence",
Nobue finds Matsuri's sleeping face irresistible ands moves in for a
kiss, only to be slapped out of it by Chika.
* In Anime/PleaseTeacher, it took until episode 7 for the main
couple to have a conscious kiss. Their technical kiss was in episode 4,
but given Kei's condition of routinely falling comatose, well...
** Mizuho kisses Kei for the first time while he's in a standstill and
* In OnegaiTwins, both girls kissed the main character while he was
asleep after they both admitted to each other that they both loved him.
This was during the time before they figured out which one was his twin.
* In DNAngel (manga only) Dark tries kissing Risa who's in bed with
a fever only to get caught by Riku. To be fair he was probably using
IntimateHealing healing magic.
* Hayate from the MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Sound Stages shamelessly
SkinshipGrope takes advantage of Signum's breasts while the latter
is asleep, to save Signum from being embarrassed if she asked her.
* Happens in Template:Bleach, when Orihime visits a sleeping Ichigo
spoiler: before departing to Hueco Mundo. She confesses her
feelings, AlmostKiss leans in to kiss him, but in the end is unable
to do it.
* Kozue in RevolutionaryGirlUtena leans over Miki (who has fallen
asleep at the piano) and kisses him, presumably on the side of his face
due to his position. She's interrupted by Anthy. Bonus: later in the
episode, she tries to kiss a conscious Miki, who jumps back repulsed.
Maybe because, you know, TwinCest they're twins.
* In episode 6 of SeikonNoQwaser a Russian soldier was willing to
rape an unconscious Sasha when he thought he was a girl and even after
finding out he's a guy he says while smirking "That's alright."
Thankfully he didn't get the chance to do so.
* Ironically, YamatoNadeshiko Sango from Template:Inuyasha does this
to her dying fiancé HandsomeLech Miroku. While he lies unconscious
after being poisoned and his [[Template:Curse Wind Tunnel]] threatens to kill
him, a grief-stricken Sango kisses him and asks him not to die before
leaving to fight the BigBad since NoOntologicalInertia killing him
is the only way to save Miroku's life.
* One of the first things to AppleOfDiscord drive a wedge into the
LitchiHikariClub is not simply the fact that Dafu intends to free
their captive Kanon, but the addition of masturbating over her
* Female on male version in [[NodameCantabile Nodame Cantabile
Finale]]. Tanya steals a kiss from Kuroki while he's sleeping.
* A near female to male version happens in VisualNovel/Template:Clannad.
During the One year before story, Kyou spots Tomoya taking a nap, and
before she does anything, Sunohara catches her and immediatly realizes
what she's thinking. When he calls Kyou out on it, well [[ButtMonkey
* GunslingerGirl (manga). Hilshire is shot during an operation and
his cyborg Triela has to remove the bullet. Triela has just discovered
the details of her SnuffFilm tragic past; realising she's a
MoralityChain to her handler Triela decides to walk out on Hilshire
after he passes out from the shock. She's unable to do so, rushing back
inside the room and kissing Hilshire whilst making an
* DengekiDaisy: Kurosaki plants one of the on-the-cheek variety on
Teru while she's in bed ill. She's only half unconcious, but she's woozy
and feverish enough to not recognize him, and it's implied she may have
fallen asleep again anyway right after she finishes speaking to him and
before he kisses her.
* In Template:Fractale, spoiler:Phryne kisses Clain in his sleep in
Episode 9... right before she leaves to return to the temple in an
attempt to stop the conflict between the temple and Lost Millennium.
* The second episode of Manga/AhMyGoddess Oh My Goddess!s OVA
has Keiichi vehemently trying to [[FightingFromTheInside fight one of
Urd's love potions]] when it makes him fall in love with [[TheRival
Sayoko]], instead of MagicalGirlfriend Belldandy. He passes out in a
crag by the beach, and Belldandy [[KissOfLife manages to wake him up
with a kiss]].
* Played for Template:Squick in Template:Berserk when [[spoiler: the King of
Midland begins molesting his daughter, Princess Charlotte, as she lay
sleeping. He then proceeds to undress and tries to rape her. She woke up
to this part, fought him off, and ran away home.]]
** Later on in the manga, [[spoiler:this almost happens to Casca
post-Eclipse due to Guts succumbing to his SuperpoweredEvilSide]].
** And again when Guts saves Casca from a nasty fall: as she lays
unconscious in their makeshift shelter, he briefly thinks about nailing
her and blames himself for it right after.
* In one episode of Template:Tokko, Sakura kisses an unconcious Ranmaru
before joining him in his BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind.
* Happens more than once in Anime/MawaruPenguindrum. First
BrotherSisterIncest Kaba kisses Himari on the lips when she's asleep
after having been revived. Later, [[spoiler: Shoma ends up taking
Ringo's first kiss while giving her CPR.]] And later it's used
PlayedForDrama quite more darkly when [[spoiler: Ringo drugs and
almost rapes Tabuki to have him impregnate her, with Shoma barely
managing to stop her.]]
* In one chapter of RosarioToVampire, Kurumu, through a complicated
set of circumstances, ends up with an unconscious Tsukune on her bed.
She considers stealing a kiss from him, but her conscience keeps her
from doing so.
* RanmaOneHalf: When Ranma gets knocked unconcious by poisonous
plants, Shampoo sees this as an opportunity to try and steal a kiss.
Akane doesn't approve.
** Also, Kodachi. She has tried to kiss [[AttemptedRape (and do more
than kiss)]] him while he's unconcious and while he's immobile. All
instances due to paralysis powder or some other potion of hers.
** Kuno once attempted to kiss Akane while she was unconcious and kiss
AttractiveBentGender "the pig-tailed girl" after she passed out.
* In the AlanMoore Template:Miracleman, Dr. Gargunza repeatedly rapes
the unconscious form of Miraclewoman to show just what a CompleteMonster
he is. Later, she wakes up thinks it's utterly laughable just how petty
a man Gargunza was.
* In the Template:Buffy season 8 comics, Buffy is put into a magical
sleep that she can only be roused from by the [[TrueLovesKiss kiss of
true love.]] She and the kisser spoiler:(Satsu) later end up having
a one-night-stand... And then another one.
* In [[Template:Deadpool Cable & Deadpool]] #12 Deadpool and The Fixer
enter Cable's house and find that the members of the mercenary team Six
Pack are there, standing like statues and trapped in a telepathic
conference with Cable. Fixer proposes taking advantage of the situation
by looking down Domino's shirt, but Deadpool wonders why he would bother
when there are fake images of her on the internet. Fixer than wonders
which of them is more pathetic, himself for wanting to grope an
unconscious woman, or Deadpool for not wanting to. Deadpool gleefully
claims it's himself.
* A rare male example: ComicBook/TomStrong gets this done to him
twice, by a female Nazi super soldier and a hive queen of moon bat
creatures. Both times, a child is produced, though only the son of the
former ever reappears.
* Sara Pezzini from the Comicbook/Template:Witchblade comics was knocked
up by [[Template:TheDarkness Jackie Estacado]] while in a coma. Then again,
he wasn't in control of his body either..
* Rose Walker is the result of this in Template:The Sandman series. The
imprisonment of Dream causes several people across the world to fall
asleep indefinitely. One of these is a woman who is a Vortex (like a
Black Hole of dreams). Dream's sibling Desire fathers a daughter by this
unconscious Vortex, and her daughter takes her Grandmother's place
as the new Vortex.
* This was an actual story arc in the beginning stages of Grant
Morrison's run on DoomPatrol. A villain named Red Jack, who may or
may not be both God and Jack the Ripper, kidnapped comatose Rhea Jones
and planned to marry her.
-->Robotman: What? This is insane! You can't marry her. She...
she's in a coma, for God's sake!
-->Red Jack: Admittedly, her conversation is a little dull.
But then again, love conquers all.
* In FanFic/TheSecondTry, a NeonGenesisEvangelion PeggySue fanfic,
after spoiler:the defeat of the Seventeeth Angel, Shinji visits a
sleeping Asuka in the hospital, and unlike [[Template:Squick what he did in
the original timeline]], he kisses her. Asuka wakes up during the kiss
and jokingly tells maybe he should have tried that the last time instead.
* In [a]
Template:Glee fanfic, there is a case of a lesbian comatose kiss. There
is also a first declaration of love involved.
* In [
this] totally EPIC AlternateUniverse PhantomOfTheOpera fic, Erik is
in the hospital, unconscious. Christine feels guilty that he was injured
protecting her, so she kisses him, thinking he'll never know. When he
wakes up, he tastes something sweet and cherry-flavored on his lips. He
later finds out what kind of lip gloss Christine wears...
* Rumors fly around the Music/Template:Gorillaz SlashFic writers about
[[Template:Squick what could have happened during the year 2D was in a
coma]]. Murdoc probably is canonically enough of an outright bastard
to at least consider it.
* Happens in the extremely popular Film/StarTrek fanfic "Atlas", a
rare non-squicky example of this trope.
* In this Manga/AxisPowersHetalia
fancomic], Japan takes advantage of a sedated China (if you want to
view it, you need to log on to Pixiv and enable R-18 images)
** In a less disturbing example,
[fanfic] has Japan
kissing a [[Template:Sleepyhead sleeping]] BeautifulDreamer Greece and
Greece either turning out to have been awake the whole time or waking up
halfway through and enthusiastically reciprocating the kiss.
* In more than a couple of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses KinkMeme
WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick chloroforms WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic so
she can have a little fun with him.
* In Fanfic/NarutoVeanganceRevelaitons, Ronan has sex with Sakura
while she's in a coma that's slated to last for five chapters. Earlier
on, he has sex with her while she's unconscious and she regains
consciousnesse while he's doing it, asks if he's having fun and they
continue having sex.
* Perhaps the earliest instance of this in film is in Erich von
Stroheim's Template:Film/Greed (1924), after [=McTeague=] (a dentist)
puts Trina under the Gas, his rough beastial nature gets the better of
him and he Frenches her while she's out. It's pretty Template:Squicky.
** That was in the novel (McTeague, by Frank Norris, 1899) too.
** Film/HorribleBosses has a similar situation, though it's
gender-flipped. The dentist in question takes photos of the experience,
and threatens to show them to the patient's fiancee unless he agrees to
have sex with her while awake.
* Western example: Kevin and Perry Go Large.
* An extreme version of this trope is also seen in KillBill when the
Bride wakes up from her four-year coma, traumatized to see her missing
pregnant belly [[spoiler: only to discover that she was raped repeatedly
while unconscious by her hospital orderly who was also in the middle of
pimping her out and finding out in that conversation that she can no
longer have any babies. She proceeds to take vengeance on both the guy's

* In TheFifthElement, Korben kisses an unconscious Leeloo, who
interrupts it by putting a gun to his temple. Apparently, she's not that
much like in a coma. "Okay, okay, that was a mistake..."
-->"What does 'ecto gammet' mean?"\\
"Uh- 'never without my permission!'"
* Averted in TheHoliday: Amanda wakes up to a hangover and Graham
making her breakfast, and asks if anything happened last night. Graham
says no, and Amanda wonders why, thinking she might have made a fool of
herself. Graham tells her, "Call me old-fashioned, but one does not have
sex with women who are unconscious."
* A particularly creepy example occurs in Template:Terminator 2, when an
asylum guard licks Sarah Conner's face while she is (he thinks)
catatonic. He pays for it later.
** Allegedly, he really DID pay for it. She (Linda Hamiliton the
actress, not her character) supposedly really nailed the guy, in a show
of distaste because she'd wanted him to really hit her and he
wouldn't do it. Creepy doesn't being to cover it.
*** They had to reshoot the scene a number of times, because of his
uneasiness about hitting her with his nightstick. It was a physically
demanding scene, and that was her revenge for his screwing it up and
making her do it over and over.
**** And the tragedy was they wound up cutting the scene in question
where the guy hit her unless you count the director's cut.
* The Spanish-language film Hable con ella (TalkToHer) involves
this. A man whose girlfriend was recently injured and fell into a coma
meets a male nurse who works at the clinic whose own girlfriend is also
in a coma. [[spoiler:The nurse never actually met her before her injury
- he's a StalkerWithACrush, and things get Template:Squicky.]]
* Film/DeadMenDontWearPlaid. "Your breasts shifted out of whack when
you fainted. I was adjusting them."
* Film/WeekendAtBernies. Only here they have a gender role-reversal,
and the guy is freaking DEAD.
* Not a kiss, per se, but in TheBoondockSaints, Rocco can't resist
the opportunity to cop a feel of the breast of a stripper who fainted
when the brothers break into a private dance room to kill a sleazy
mid-level crime lord (played by Ron Jeremy, no less).
-->Connor: What the fuck are you doing?!
-->Rocco: ...I'll tip her!
* The trope is quoted almost verbatim in
[[EternalSunshineoftheSpotlessMind Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
Mind]] when Elijah Wood's character tells his associate that he stole a
pair of a girl's panties while she was unconscious during one of their
memory-erasing house calls. There's an awkward silence, after which they
both laugh hysterically.
* In RosemarysBaby Rosemary's Baby, Rosemary dreams she is being
raped by [[Template:Satan the devil]] [[spoiler:(unfortunately, as it later
turns out, this is not a dream)]]. When she wakes up, she discovers that
her husband, with whom she had planned to try to conceive that night,
has had sex with her while she slept. His justification? "I didn't want
to miss 'baby night'."
* Played with twice in KissKissBangBang. Harmony fals asleep at a
party and Harry stumbles upon her as a man is feeling up her thigh.
Harry challenges the man to a fight, only to get beaten up and learn
that the man was Harmony's date. Later on, she faints and Harry notices
a spider crawling around her cleavage. Harry tries to swat the spider
away, but wakes up Harmony in the process, causing her to think that he
was groping her.
* In French Kiss (1995), the French thief/smuggler tries to search
Kate while she is asleep on a train. He kinda sorta accidentally kisses
her while she is dreaming of her boyfriend. She wakes up refreshed and
in a positive mood. This is a romantic comedy, so the scene isn't meant
to be squick.
** Well it helps that she grabbed him in her sleep. And he tried to
escaped for a second. And the scene is hot...
* Happens at a party in DeadPoetsSociety between one of the boys and
a girl he's been pining after. I don't recall how the girl felt, but her
JerkJock boyfriend was pissed.
** Note that in the book, all three were awake during this.
* Almost happens in AnimalHouse, but Pinto's [[GoodAngelBadAngel
shoulder angel]] talks him out of it (much to the disgust of his

circumstances are a lot less Template:Squicky in the [[Disney/SleepingBeauty

* "Shrek", being a Disney parody at heart, sets up the awakening scene
from "SleepingBeauty", but then he shakes her awake instead. Bonus
points for her pretending to be asleep [[spoiler: merely wanting a True
Loves Kiss to break her spell.]]
* WallE. Don't look at me like that. EVE is in hibernate mode, and
WALL-E takes her on dates and tries to hold her retracted hand. Though
Wall-E didn't do anything more than this and he may just have been
trying to wake her up and [[spoiler: later on, EVE pretty much does the
same thing in return.]] Of course, they're both robots so they're not
really in "comas" anyway, more like "stand-by".
** Then again, in one of the DVD extras it was stated that 'holding
hands' to WallE. is akin to getting married.
* In Kids, a girl passed out drunk at a wild party gets raped by
another teen party-goer.
** This scene was referenced in the Template:Eminem song "Guilty Conscience"
during the second scenario.
** spoiler: Some possible karmic justice as the victim is HIV positive.
* The ending of Nicolas Roeg's spoiler:''Bad Timing''.
* Neither a kiss nor a coma, but in TheBoneCollector, Angelina
Jolie's character runs her fingers over the face, neck, and hands of
Denzel Washington's paralyzed character after he has had an attack and
is unconscious. He wakes up with "There's laws against molesting the
handicapped, you know."
* In SuckerPunch, Blue plans to [[spoiler:rape Baby Doll after her
lobotomy as revenge, but he's put off by how UncannyValley she is after
* In TheMatrix, Trinity does this to Neo.
* The title character is conceived this way in TheWorldAccordingToGarp.
* In slasher spoof ShriekIfYouKnowWhatIDidLastFridayTheThirteenth,
this is how the teen ButtMonkey Boner (...FailOSuckyName yes)
ultimately decides to lose his virginity. [[spoiler:He's killed before
he gets a chance to rape the girl. The fact that his actual first time
turns out to be with a transsexual is probably a case of SexualKarma]].
* The made-for-TV movie She Woke Up Pregnant is about a sleazy
dentist who rapes his patients when they're under heavy sedatives after
performing dental surgery on them, and the main character is a woman who
winds up pregnant because of this and decides to fight back.
* Done when Eragon looks upon Arya in the first book of
TheInheritanceCycle while she is passed out. Sure, he never does
anything (nor is it hinted that he'd do anything) it's still disturbing
how he looks at someone who has been poisoned and can only think "Wow,
she still looks pretty hot for a torture victim!"
** And lampshaded because he feels embarrassed to catch himself thinking
that. Combine this with an IntimateHealing scene and remind yourself
Eragon is a HormoneAddledTeenager teenager.
* This is what Prince Charming did to Literature/SnowWhite...when he
thought she was dead. Fortunately, this magically (?) revived her so
they could live HappilyEverAfter and not ask what he was doing in the
** The reviving kiss is pretty much only in Disney -- in the Grimm
version he just decided to take her away, glass coffin and all -- and
his servants stumble as they're carrying the coffin, jolting a piece of
the poison apple out of her throat, which [[NoOntologicalInertia for
some reason]] revives her.
*** In the original version of the story, she actually was dead, and
stayed that way. However, because the king (not prince) is the king,
he's magical and manages to get her pregnant. But she stayed dead.
** And of course, again in SleepingBeauty, where the above reviving kiss
was ripped off from. [[spoiler:Although some interpretations make it
even worse than poor Shinji... as it isn't so much a kiss as much as a
rape and forced pregnancy, and it is one of her twin babies suckling at
her thumb that removes a splinter and awakens her. Also, he's already
*** spoiler:To an Ogre. That wants to eat Beauty and her children.
*** spoiler:I believe that version is usually called SunMoonTalia
** The whole thing was much more messy in NeilGaiman's "Snow, Glass
and Apples". [[Template:Squick Much more messy]].
** Seriously though, if every curse needs a loophole
(CurseEscapeClause and apparently they do), isn't this a brilliant
one? How many Necro Princes can there actually be?
*** Judging from these stories, way too many. And lets not forget that
in the original Grimm telling Snow White was preteen when she went to
live with the dwarves, and while it wasn't clearly stated just how long
she stayed with them, it didn't seem like several years. Not just a
necro prince, but a necro pedo prince!
**** The preteen part falls into ValuesDissonance Values Dissonance.
In the days of the original stories, it was the common practice for
girls to be wed early and usually to a man in his 30s or older. This was
for many reasons including life expectancy, virginity, and providing as
many heirs as possible.
* A sleeping Leia almost gets kissed in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse
novel SplinterOfTheMindsEye Fortunately for her (and the readers,
and his own later peace of mind), [[Template:Twincest Luke]] resists the
impulse, vowing instead to protect her from everything, including
himself. In AlanDeanFoster's defense, the book was published before
they were revealed to be siblings.
** On a less... squicky note... StarWars Luke Skywalker kissed
ExpandedUniverse Mara Jade while she was sleeping. Don't worry, he
kissed her while they were both conscious [[ItWasHisSled by the end of
*** On the LighterAndSofter extreme lighter and un-squickier end,
Luke actually wakes Mara up from a trance by saying "I love you, Mara."
* In The Halfling's Gem, Drizzt Do'Urden kisses Catti-brie after she
has been knocked semi-conscious by a long fall--and she's already
involved with someone, no less.
* Happens in the Literature/Template:Wicked sequel Son of a Witch,
when Candle has IntimateHealing sex with the unconscious Liir
[[spoiler:and becomes pregnant. In the end she returns, long enough to
dump their LamarckWasRight green-skinned daughter on him.]]
* Romeo and Juliet. In one of the most famous scenes in all of
literature, Juliet kisses a dead Romeo, who has taken poison due to
thinking Juliet herself was dead. The kiss was both out of love and out
of hope that a remnant of the poison would still be on his lips, thus
killing Juliet. She has to use Romeo's dagger in order to finally end it.
** Romeo also kisses Juliet when she's unconscious/seemingly dead as his
final act before committing suicide.
* In Template:Lolita, Humbert attempts to InvokedTrope invoke this
trope by giving Lolita some sleeping pills so that he can fondle her
without her knowing it. However, the pills turn out to not have as
strong an effect as advertised, leaving Lolita just conscious enough for
Humbert to decide not to take the risk. (They still do it in the
morning, with her allegedly being the one who initiated it.)
* Happens in McTeague after the titular character gives Trina
anesthetic. It's implied that this is his compromise between doing
nothing and raping her.
* In the novel Template:Olympos by Dan Simmons, a man must have sex with
a woman in a technology-induced slumber in order to awaken her. He's
creeped out by the idea, but manages to perform by thinking about his
** The woman refers to him as a rapist for the rest of their time
together, but doesn't seem to hold it against him.
* Take a Girl Like You by Kingsley Amis. [[spoiler: Jenny Bunn's
would-be boyfriend date-rapes her while she is drunk and passed out.]]
* Ryel Mirai can't resist kissing his unconscious theoretically-love
interest in Carolyn Kephart's Wysard. (Resisting any woman isn't his
strong point, but most of the others are actively trying to seduce him.)
* Carolyn Chute's Merry Men has a disturbing version of this. The
main character's wife has to have surgery to remove a brain tumor, but
she comes out of it brain-damaged and functioning at about the level of
a two-year-old and has to be taken care of by her family. Over the
course of the book, the husband repeatedly sneaks into his
mother-in-law's house and has sex with his wife. It's broadly hinted
that the WriterOnBoard Writer is On Board with this, as one of the
few times his wife manages coherent speech is calling out his name
* In the first book of the AmeliaPeabody series Crocodile on a
Sandbank Amelia comes out of a swoon to feel herself being tenderly
held and kissed by her not yet husband Emerson with whom she has a
SlapSlapKiss relationship going. Not only is she totally fine with it,
she shams unconsciousness for a few more minutes to prolong the moment!
* In the DragonridersOfPern novel Dragonsdawn, most of Sallah
Telgar's children were conceived by her seducing her husband while he
was half-asleep and unable to do anything but go along. The exception
was their first child (Which was the reason they got married in the
first place), which was conceived by her getting them alone and serving
him a meal liberally spiked with aphrodisiacs.
* In ChristopherMoore's vampire novels, vampires become nonconscious
(possibly completely dead) from dawn to sunset. The protagonist once
complained to her boyfriend about the time she woke up, sticky, dressed
like a AllGuysWantCheerleaders cheerleader.
* In true ASongofIceandFire A Song of Ice and Fire style, this is
taken to an extremely Template:Squick squicky level and even genderswapped.
UnluckyChildhoodFriend Lysa Tully has sex with [[MagnificentBastard
Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish]] when he was on the brink of death and in
a hallucinating, semi-conscious state from a feverish wound. Oh and the
time before that, he was passed out from having [[DrowningMySorrows
drunk too much]] after being rejected by Catelyn.
* In the third AnitaBlake novel the main vampire character Jean-Claude
has to mark the main character before she dies of a monster snake bite.
From what one character says it looked like Jean-Claude was struggling
with the temptation of having 'his way' with her when she was topless
and out cold.
* Russlan and Lyudmilla by Creator/AlexanderPushkin contains a part
that the hero rescues his love, and takes her home while she is in an
enchanted sleep. Pushkin lampshades the trope by stating that the
narrator insisted Ruslan behaved honorably, and he believes that. Later,
she is snatched by [[FakeUltimateHero another guy who brings her
home]]... not so clear about him, but considering he was in a hurry, it
is entirely possible he averted the trope as well.
folder:Live Action TV
* In Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined, Sam finds an unconscious
Kara and kisses her several times; this was actually a fairly
heartwarming instance considering Sam had spent the last four months not
knowing if she was even alive. Later when Sam is actually in a coma Kara
kisses him and even crawls into bed with him; it is still heartwarming
but also a major tearjerker since earlier in the episode the doctor flat
out told her he was unlikely to ever wake up.
* In the Series/Template:Firefly episode "Our Mrs. Reynolds," when Inara
found Mal unconscious from DruggedLipstick Saffron's poisoned kiss,
she kissed him on the lips - mostly in a panic - resulting in paralysis
at a most inconvenient time, since some of the lipstick was still on his
** This trope is further played for laughs as the paralysis causes Inara
to realize the depths of Mal's stupidity and curse him for it as she
falls unconscious. Inara's denial of said unconscious kiss after
everything is "fixed" is further played for laughs due to Mal's
cluelessness in general when it comes to women.
** "AnywhereButTheirLips That's why I never kiss 'em on the mouth."
* In an episode of SaturdayNightLive, one man mentions to his
friends that he's having a sexual relationship with one of his patients
that he feels conflicted about. Since you're on this page, you can
figure out the punchline to this story on your own.
* In Template:United States of Tara the gay son, Marshall, has the friend
he's been crushing on over to his house to watch a movie that was
assigned for English class. The friend falls asleep and Marshall works
up the nerve to kiss him. His friend wakes up, and kisses him back.
* Carly of Template:ICarly kisses one of her crushes of the week, after
he fell down an elevator shaft.
* Template:Ideal: Judith, being a recovering necrophiliac, takes
advantage of Moz when he passes out during a party (he doesn't mind),
and kisses Jenny during her coma.
* An episode of Series/LawAndOrder deals with a woman who becomes
pregnant... years after being put into a coma by a car accident.
[[spoiler: It's later revealed that her mother paid an orderly to rape
her in order to produce a grandchild. The case gets... ugly.]]
** A similar episode of LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit had a woman in
a coma pregnant. At first they thought it was this trope, but it turned
out much worse. [[spoiler: A dying man is having multiple women
impregnated to harvest stem cells. Then he sues for custody.]]
** Another L&O episode had these couples using drugs for sex. The wife
would take something, which would knock her out, and then her husband
would have sex with her unconscious form.
* Series/Template:Torchwood's Jack does this to Ianto in a very
unprofessional "KissOfLife" fashion. He then threatens to kill him and
then shoots his girlfriend.
** Played with in "End of Days" when Gwen kisses Jack's dead-for-days
body to say goodbye. (Though he then proceeds to revive).
* Subverted in an episode of Template:Cheers. Sam is alone with a
passed-out Rebecca and whispers to himself, "do it!". He proceeds to...
dress her up in a bandito costume and draw a moustache on her face.
* Sue White impregnates herself with Mac's sperm when he's in a coma
in GreenWing. Caroline is also seen kissing him and trying to lie
next to him.
* Monica and Phoebe in Template:Friends faun over a guy they both like
who is in a coma.
** Another episode of Friends had Chandler reveal he kissed a drunk
Rachel at a party to get back at Ross for going out with a girl he
liked. Ross then reveals that the night of the party was when he first
kissed Rachel, while she was unconscious underneath a pile of coats.
Subverted in the revelation that he didn't kiss Rachel, he kissed
*** Which leads Chandler to exclaim 'This is what I married into?!'
* In the Japanese drama ShokojoSera (a remake of
ALittlePrincess), this was done by both Sera and Kaito but both
weren't on the lips. Kaito did it first to Sera on the forehead, while
he and BeautifulDreamer a sleeping Sera were waiting for a bus. Sera
would do it to SleepCute a sleeping Kaito on the cheek when she was
forced to leave the academy.
* The titular character from NodameCantabile sneaks a kiss to the
sleeping Chiaki's cheek, [[Template:LampshadeHanging pointing out]] this was
her chance. Of course, [[spoiler: Chiaki was awake the whole time and
[[GenreSavvy he knew Nodame wouldn't have resisted the temptation to
kiss him]]. He let her because he wanted to thank her for everything she
had done for him.]]
* Referenced in the "Very Special Drew" episode of the
TheDrewCareyShow. Drew is marrying Kate, who's in a coma. She
manages to wake up just in time to say "I do". Oswald notes that the
honeymoon will be a lot less creepy now.
* In CallMeFitz, Fitz gets Babs devon to marry him while she suffers
from Locked-in Syndrome. It gets a lot more fun when she suddenly wakes
up to say I do.
* A male version is the myth of Endymion, who is placed in an eternal
sleep by the goddess Selene in order to preserve his beauty, and then
apparently raped by her, producing fifty (!) daughters.
** Referenced in SailorMoon, where the character of
Endymion/Mamoru/Tuxedo Mask is Sailor Moon's love interest and the

* In MesopotamianMythology, [[IHaveManyNames Ishtar/Inanna/whatever you
want to call her]] falls asleep under a poplar tree, and a young man by
the name of Shukaletuda is taken with her beauty and has his way with
her. When she wakes up and realizes she has been violated, she sends
plagues upon the Earth until she finds Shukaletuda (who had gone into
hiding). He begs her for forgiveness, but she will have none of that and
* QuestForGlory Quest for Glory IV. You are given the
opportunity to kiss or even "cop a feel" of a certain vampiress while
she's asleep in her coffin. She's not too incredibly amused if you do.
** Ironically she's angry because she thinks you were trying to kill her
in her sleep. Maybe its better to let her think that.
*** Even worse, if you take the obvious action and kill her, you end up
dead. So [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop fondling her is the best thing to
do.]] Huh. Way to go, Sierra.
*** There "is* an option to shake her awake, which actually makes sense
under the circumstances, since you've just found out that she's not the
Big Bad, but rather the person keeping the Big Bad from going kill crazy
on the entire area. So it's not so Family Unfriendly after all.
* The FanRemake of KingsQuestII has this as a possibility [[spoiler:
but you'll need a different tactic to wake Valanice]].
* The 2006 Template:Sonic the Hedgehog game comes to mind, with Princess
Elise's spoiler: necrobestial kiss with Sonic's dead body. In a
Template:Narmful inversion of the SleepingBeauty archetype, [[spoiler: her
kiss brings him back to life so he can prevent the god of light from
destroying all of space and time]].
* Template:Gender flipped in [[VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Sam and
Max Hit the Road]]. Trixie the giraffe-necked girl falls in love with
Bruno the Frozen Bigfoot (they're circus attractions). She reads him
bedtime stories and bakes cakes for him while he's [[HumanPopsicle
sealed in a block of ice]]. However, Bruno is eventually thawed and the
two run away together.
* In Template:Yosuga no Sora, Sora does this to Haruka, oh and by the way
Haruka is her [[Template:Twincest twin]] BrotherSisterIncest brother.
* ShiningForce II for the Sega Genesis presented this, naturally, as
the only way to awaken the otherwise comatose Princess of the Granseal
Kingdom after the BigBad was beaten once and for all.
* In VisualNovel/KiraKira, the protagonist is overwhelmed with
tender feelings for a childhood friend when he spots her sleeping, and
bends over to kiss her, angrily stating that it's her fault, she's
making him do this - and then accidentally drops his ice cream on her.
* In VisualNovel/NightShiftNurses Ryuji knocks Ako out with a drug,
ties her up and... does things with her body until she wakes up and then
* VisualNovel/MajiDeWatashiNiKoiShinasai has a more extreme version
of this. Having run out of ideas, Yamato's last desperate gamble to
spoiler:keep Chris in Japan is this. She wakes up partway through,
and they end up going all night long. spoiler:Surprisingly, it works!
* Used in the manga webcomic, Template:Misfile, between a heavily
sleeping Ash, [[GenderBender a boy transformed semi-permanently into a
girl]], and his/her best friend, Emily, who thinks she's straight but
definitely likes the guy-who's-biologically-a-girl... no interruptions
occur, though afterwards, Ash reflects on his/her 'odd dream', while
Emily silently rages that it didn't help clear up her feelings at ALL...
* Is also used in the webcomic SomethingPositive, where [[spoiler:
Davan is lying in bad after release from the hospital, sedated and
semiconscious. Cue Kim, who, visiting to take care of him, is overcome
by feelings of lust, and proceeds to have sex with the comatose Davan.
Instead of complaining about the rape itself, he whines about
AManIsNotAVirgin not having been awake to enjoy it.]]
** Notably, the incident is very clearly indicated as rape, and is
referred to as such for the rest of the series, even though it was
non-violent and both parties probably would have been willing
participants in different circumstances.

have agreed or not is immaterial, as is whether or not it's violent.
