* Vegeta from ''[[Manga/DragonBall Dragon Ball Z]]'' has got to be the epitome of this trope. Throughout the entire series Vegeta envies Goku because no matter how hard he trains and fights he is never able to surpass Goku. This becomes a literal case of Green-Eyed Monster when Vegeta becomes a Super Saiyan (the transformation gives you green eyes) and despite becoming the warrior of legend that the Saiyan Race had admired for thousands of years '''still'' couldn't let go of his pride. During the era of peace after Goku died he still finds a reason to be jealous because he sees that Goku's family life is more loving and meaningful than his is as Goku's family supported him and made him a better fighter while his didn't show the same results. It is only when Vegeta lets go and admits that becoming better than Goku isn't all there is to his life that he truly shines as a warrior and becomes a good guy.

*** When he became a {{Hikikomori}}, he pretty much became jealous of everyone because so many people thought that he would be a top student in a top middle school, but instead he ended up dropping out of middle school and he felt that everyone around him saw him as a failure. He even felt that his own parents hated him.

* ''In Manga/MekkoRarekko'', we have two examples of them.
** First off, we have Yamano Taishou who is a strange case. At first Taishou is jealous of Buchi because Buchi was getting so much praise in school. Then he gets jealous of him when he learns that his foreskin has pulled back, while his own foreskin hasn't pulled back because he has phimosis. He was going to embarrass Buchi by taking nude pictures of him and releasing them at the school, but when he sees an old picture from when he first met Buchi, he decides to not release them.
** Then in the second volume, Taishou grew jealous of Buchi because he was working on a school project with Fukami, even though he really wanted to work with Buchi. It doesn't help that Taishou and Fukami never had much of a strong friendship so Taishou didn't like Fukami much. When Buchi tells Taishou that he is his friend just like Fukami, Taishou felt that Buchi was comparing him to Fukami which got Taishou really upset. [[spoiler: It results in Taishou raping Buchi due to Taishou taking out his envy of Fukami on Buchi. Fukami discovers what happened and he punches Taishou to get him to stop. When Taishou finally realizes that he raped Buchi, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone he immediately regrets it]] and [[ManlyTears breaks down crying.]]]]
** Then we have Amanuma Shinichi who is quite an extreme example.
*** First he was jealous at the fact that when he got into a top middle school, that he wasn't a top student like he was in elementary school which lead to him dropping out of that school and he became a {{Hikikomori}} for a while.
*** When he became a {{Hikikomori}}, he pretty much became jealous of everyone because so many people thought that he would be a top student in a top middle school, but instead he ended up dropping out of middle school and he felt that everyone around him saw him as a failure. He even felt that his own parents hated him.
*** When he transferred to Buchi's and Taishou's middle school, he became jealous of Taishou because back in first grade, he bullied him a lot and he thought that it would have affected him a lot in middle school. But he was surprised to see that Taishou was just about an average middle school student, while he had everything that happened to him.

* ''Manga/GochuumonWaUsagiDesuKa'': Just a very subtle one, but in episode 6, Chino feels left out when her two school friends, Megu and Maya, spend a lot of time with Cocoa and Rize at the Rabbit House. When she tells Chiya about it, the latter notices the former is unaware of the feeling of loneliness when she saw all of them like that.

If this weren't a typical [[StatusQuoIsGod comedy anime]], the episode probably would have ended with them becoming an OfficialCouple.

* ''NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater'': During the ''Nautilus'' episodes, a triangle of jealousy emerges between Grandis, Electra, and Nadia... for different reasons. Grandis is jealous of Electra's love for Nemo. Electra is jealous of both Grandis's attraction to Nemo ''and'' Nadia out of her own fear of losing Nemo (she tries to suppress it, though). Nadia, meanwhile, becomes jealous of Jean's friendship with Electra, to the point where she fears she may lose him to the latter (when in fact, nothing romantic is happening between either). Even Sanson is somewhat implied to be jealous of Captain Nemo at one point... although partially out of fear for Grandis' usual amorous fickleness and failed love affairs.
* In ''LovelyComplex'' Otani was jealous when Risa had a crush on [[spoiler:Maity sensei, leading him to [[GreenEyedEpiphany realize/confess his feelings]]]]. Later, he is also jealous and possessive towards Risa on several other occasions. To say nothing of Risa, to a lesser extent, over Otani as well. Then there's Mimi who is a {{Yandere}} over Otani. She gets better, though.
* In ''{{Kekkaishi}}'', Yoshimori is jealous of Tokine always paying attention to his older brother. Also [[spoiler:Tokine was seen obviously jealous when Julia was crushing on Yoshimori.]]
