to:

* Male Shepard could get into one of these situations in VideoGame/MassEffect2 with [[AxCrazy Jack]] and [[IceQueen Miranda]]. Jack is a HotBlooded criminal with BloodKnight tendencies, while Miranda is a [[AddedAliterativeAppeal cold, calm and composed]] IceQueen who Shepard can [[DefrostingIceQueen thaw out]]. The two of them are even scripted to get into an argument. Not about Shepard though.

It's common enough for a love triangle to be between two guys over one girl, instead of the other way around. These two fellows can be sorted into two general character types, one cold and aloof (the Ice), and the other one warm and passionate (the fire).

* ''StarDriver'' has [[TheChick Sawako]] pitted between [[TheHero Takuto]] (fire, being very spirited and innocent) and [[TheLancer Sugata]] (ice, being calm and mature). Inverted that Sugata is the [[ChildhoodFriendRomance childhood mate]] turned [[ArrangedMarriage arranged fiancee]].

* ''SamuraiChamploo'' has Jin as Ice, Mugen as Fire (RedOniBlueOni, yes, very much), and as the story advances, their bodyguardee Fuu is shown to grow fond of both ([[TriangRelations Type 1]]). Type 10 is pretty widely accepted as the situation later on, with Mugen as a, but then again, Jin's very {{stoic}} personality makes the triangle a particluarly tricky one to classify. Not that the other two are too easy to read either.

to:

* ''Manga/{{Yurara}}'' has an almost literal example of this, where the titular character is involved in a love triangle between the extroverted and happy-go-lucky [[PlayingWithFire fire user]] Meiwa, and the calm and intelligent [[MakingASplash water user]] Yakou. In a subversion though, Yakou doesn't actually love Yurara -- he loves her OlderAlterEgo.



* In an episode of ''HomicideLifeOnTheStreet'', a prim and proper career military man is accused of killing his wife because she left him for her bad boy lover. As it turned out [[spoiler:he did kill her, but precisely because she tried to go back to him, undermining his sense of control.]]
* Stefan and Damon from TheVampireDiaries fit this trope. Stefan is the Fire, who is warm, kind, compassionate, caring and loving and Damon is the Ice, who is uncaring, arrogant, cold, unsympathetic and impulsive.
