See also YokoOhNo, when fans dislike a new lover. If the friend in question also happened to be the character's former lover then TheMissusAndTheEx applies instead. Compare FriendshipFavoritism.

* ''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. This causes Rolo to snap, since he can't stand the thought of not being Lelouch's only sibling ''and'' [[HeKnowsTooMuch realizes that Shirley knows important stuff]] [[FakeMemories that should NOT be aware of]]; he 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, PLUS has been deceived to believe that Miaka has completely thrown her away).

* In ''Manga/PandoraHearts'', Gilbert and Alice frequently fight over Oz's attention. Given a good amount of ambiguity on the feelings of both parts, it's debatable which of them is supposed to be the best friend and which of them is supposed to be the lover. It's worth noting that [[WordOfGod Jun Mochizuki) stated that Oz and Alice's relationship was not and never would be romantic, which would make Gilbert the lover, if there truly is a lover in this relationship.

* ''Manga/ServantXService'' has this with Taishi and his sister [[{{Tsundere}} Touko]]. He mentions that his girlfriends usually break up with him right before Christmas. Chihaya suggests that this might be because he celebrates Touko's birthday (which falls on Christmas eve) [[ChristmasInJapan rather than spending time with his girlfriend on Christmas Eve.]]

** Notable for its total version. Arthur and Merlin are HeterosexualLifePartners, but when Guinevere starts to catch Arthur's attention, Merlin [[ShipperOnDeck couldn't be more delighted]]. [[HetIsEw This poses quite a problem for the slashers]] considering Merlin and Guinevere are LikeBrotherAndSister, and more often than not it is Merlin encouraging Gwen to spend time with Arthur.
