* ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'': [[SubvertedTrope subverts this]]. Near the end [[spoiler: Sheryl, close to death from her illness pleads Alto to save Ranka, so the two can be together after she dies (emphatised more in novel, but still present in series). Then [[LaserGuidedKarma Ranka heals Sheryl]], so the threesome persists, and isn't resoved in series]]
** The movies, meanwhile [[spoiler: [[InvertedTrope invert this]]. The "hypotenuse" is the only one left standing, while her rival is in coma (but probably will make it, though)) and the object of attraction is missing, and [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat probably dead]]. ]]

Alice, Bob, and Charlie are in a LoveTriangle. Alice loves Bob, but also has feelings for Charlie -- or maybe she doesn't, but can't or doesn't want to turn him down (maybe she's even in a relationship with or married to Charlie while pining after Bob). However will she resolve this dilemma? Well, fortunately, she doesn't have to -- Charlie meets with a convenient illness, accident, or other such fatal situation, freeing Alice up to go after Bob without guilt. If Charlie is aware of Alice's feelings for Bob, he may tell her with his dying breath that she shouldn't mourn him too much, because he [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy wants his beloved to be happy]].

* In ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'', Cyclops making it out with Emma Frost -- almost literally on his dead wife's grave. In this case, the dead wife made them do it with her psychic powers, or rather, the future resurrected her did it, but still perplexing, since [[FridgeLogic there were plenty of other ways she could have made Scott stay]] that were a lot less tacky.

Added DiffLines:

** Series 8 establishes Danny Pink as a love interest for Clara Oswald, and this evolves into a somewhat bizarre LoveTriangle scenario as the season progresses. Ultimately, it's not the Doctor who gets killed off, it's Danny (which leads to an implied form of RelationshipUpgrade between the Doctor and Clara in Series 9).
