Added DiffLines:

* Since the villains of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' represent the SevenDeadlySins, it's natural that Envy would be among them.
** Kazuya Makigami, the main villain of the Day Breakers OVA and a sidequest in the game, says that he's jealous of his brother for being the "smart one," and thus [[ParentalFavoritism their parents' favorite child]], which is why [[BigBrotherBully he abuses them]].
** The Takases are quite jealous of a couple of wealthy elites at a prominent company, and believe said couple had been looking down on them. When the couple died, the Takases took in their orphaned son Taiki, and lived beyond their means while forcing him to take on their debts, wanting to see him grovel. [[spoiler:To make matters even worse, when Taiki died, they have the temerity to blame his teacher Sadayo Kawakami for pushing him too hard (when she'd actually been tutoring him) and blackmail her]].
** The Palace representing Envy belongs to [[spoiler:Sae Niijima]], who's jealous of her male colleagues for their success in a male-dominated field [[spoiler:as well as her younger sister, Makoto]], and as such, is solely determined to get ahead at any cost to herself. Her Palace takes on the form of a casino with rigged games, representing her belief that only the corrupt get ahead, and in the boss fight [[spoiler:Sae's Shadow]] turns into Leviathan, the demon of Envy. [[spoiler:Sae's actually more sympathetic than the other two characters above, and actually comes to her senses with Makoto and the protagonist's help]].

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'' :Atris toward a Male Exile, especially apparent in a cut scene where she shock the Handmaiden because you've taught her [[LoopholeAbuse the way of the Force]]. Although she wasn't completly sane by this point.

* In ''JakIIRenegade'', [[{{TheRival}} Erol]] harbors a crush on Keira, who's in a relationship with Jak. Near the end of the game, he finally loses himself to his jealousy for losing [[spoiler: both the big race and Keira's respect]] and tries to [[{{MoralEventHorizon}} run over Jak]], only to crash into several barrels of Dark Eco. [[spoiler: The aftermath of this accident results in him trying to destroy the planet in the very next game]].

* Bass from the ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' series. He's jealous of Mega Man's position as a world champion and is obsessed with defeating him for that.
* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', [[spoiler:the Pope]] apparently hates half-elves simply for their long lifespans. Ironically, some half-elves hate their long lifespans, because it means that while their non half-elf friends/comrades/lovers die, they'll still be alive, leaving them alone. Genis is initially troubled by this realization, but Regal reminds him that his friends can live on in his memories, comforting him slightly.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', if you watch the expression on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTXIe7Bv1HY Balthier's face after Al-cid finishes flirting with Ashe]] during one of the later cutscenes [[ShipTease it seems an awful lot]] like a romantic version of the Green-Eyed Monster.
* In ''LuminousArc2'', [[spoiler:Steiner's displeasure over Roland becoming the Rune Knight (with the Runic Engine ''he'' develops!) is the basis for his HeelFaceTurn and fuel to make the improved Runic Engine for him and his Stinger Squad. They do get get strong, at the risk of their body crystalising.]]

* Kain in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' is easily brainwashed into betraying his friend and ally Cecil due to [[LoveTriangle their shared love for Rosa]], who chooses Cecil over Kain.
** Kain himself may be a recipient of this; certain versions of the game hint at Barbariccia coveting Kain because [[BirdsOfAFeather they're both "creatures of the sky,"]] making for an [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited love]] twofer. When Kain "betrays" her and the rest of Golbez's followers (read: comes to his senses), the Archfiend's decision to end him and Rosa [[WomanScorned thus elevates to]] [[IfICantHaveYou an incredibly]] [[MurderTheHypotenuse personal matter]].

* [[BigBad Clockwerk]] from SlyCooper takes this trope, cranks it up, uses it to season ThePowerOfHate, then he ''eats'' the result. The end result: a robotic owl hellbent on extinguishing the entire bloodline he's envious of. Oh, and his immortal body [[NotHyperbole literally uses his hatred as fuel]].

* Parsee Mizuhashi from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series gained [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower the ability to manipulate jealousy]] after [[PowerBornOfMadness she became envious]] of the travelers on the bridge to the underground, [[TrollBridge of which she was the guardian]]. Her boss theme, signature spellcard, and ''Double Spoiler'' title all make reference to the Green-Eyed Monster. And yes, [[VisualPun she does have green eyes]].
** Parsee is allegedly a bridge princess, mentioned above.
** While this is {{Fanon}} only, Sakuya Izayoi has been leering to this after so many times not included as a main character in Touhou games, directing her jealousy at Sanae Kochiya (playable in ''Unidentified Fantastic Object'') and Youmu Konpaku (returns in ''Ten Desires''). Also, according to fanon, she has ACupAngst as well, which is why it is joked that any mention of the word "pad" [[BerserkButton will most likely get you knifed]].
