* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': In all of a moment, the relationship between Shirley (love interest) and Rolo (clingy surrogate brother) becomes this when [[spoiler:Shirley mentions wanting to get Lelouch back together with Nunnally, which causes Rolo, who can't stand the thought of not being Lelouch's only sibling, and promptly ends things by killing Shirley]].
* Yui and Tamahome over Miaka in ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' (because Yui has a crush on Tamahome, too, and wants him for herself).

* 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. Well, it's one-sided on Moko's part, but still.

Added DiffLines:

* Amelia (lover) vs. Zadie (friend) over Dylan Crosby in ''Literatre/ReconstructingAmelia''. Neither Dylan or Amelia want the conflict, but Zadie repeatedly antagonizes Amelia despite Dylan's desperate attempts to smooth things over and Amelia's attempts to just stay out of Zadie's way.

* HarryPotter: [[spoiler: Snape and Lily weren't dating, but he does love her. What caused the fallout of was his friendship with future Death Eaters like Mulciber and Avery. Beyond influencing his idealogies, it caused a strain with Lily's other friends, wondering why she was a friend with him. WordOfGod is that if he could, he'd have done things differently and that had he given them up, there was a good chance they'd end up together. Instead, she ends up with his adversary and rival, James Potter.]]

** Justified, since Sparhawk is also the Prince Cosort and Champion of Elenia under command of his wife the Queen, and for political reasons she can't let the Church order her husband around while ignoring her authority.

* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/{{Reflections}}'', an AU fic of VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss this is how Natalia sees her relationship with Luke and Asch. Unfortunately, not only is she WrongGenreSavvy, but her actions in the name of this trope tend to backfire ''horribly''.

** You know what? Forget any specific story -- the fan authors on the whole tend to do this ''really'' often with Ash, Pikachu, and whoever one or the other of them is being shipped with.

* 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.
