* In many ''WesternAnimation/{{SouthPark}}'' fanfics, the gang is in junior high or high school and Stan is dating Wendy or has a great shot at dating Wendy. However, one condition of Wendy's is that Stan must stop hanging out with Kyle, his super best friend. Most of these fics can be either Stan/Kyle slash or just mere friendship fics.

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'': Although the song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aF4CWCXirZ8&feature=related Can You Feel the Love Tonight?]]" is mostly just a romantic montage between [[NewOldFlame Simba and Nala]], it begins and ends with Timon and Pumbaa, Simba's best friends, lamenting the fact that they will lose him if he goes back to the Pridelands.

When it doesn't come to blows, they either reconcile their differences... or draw up a "custody" contract that is ludicrously complicated. On occasion, the third party will [[WhatTheHellHero call them out]] over being [[DidYouThinkICantFeel treated like a commodity]]... [[NotNowKid before being shushed so the grownups can talk.]]

* ''Manga/UQHolder'' has an odd, one-person variation: Kuromaru clearly has some sort of feelings towards Touta. The problem is that Kuromaru is a type of being with NoBiologicalSex until he turns 16, at which point he chooses to be either biologically male or female. He currently identifies as male, but is rather clearly conflicted as to whether he wants to stay male, making his relationship with Touta something of a BashBrothers thing, or become a girl and make the relationship more romantic in nature.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Catherine}}'', there is a question in the confessional that asks this. Choosing "Lover" leans you towards the Lawful side on the KarmaMeter; choosing "Friend" leans you towards the Chaotic side.

* In ''Manga/SkipBeat'', Ren (mutual crush) and Moko ([[{{Tsundere}} best friend]]) sometimes act like this towards Kyoko. On Kyoko's birthday, they were secretly trying to figure out who could get her a better present.
** Averted, Ren was taking the mature route of "it doesn't matter which gift is the better" and Moko originally didn't know it was Kyoko's birthday but had gotten her a gift anyway.
*** Though, that might have been because of Ren's confidence in his present, considering he secretly gave her a crystal.
