* La Tigresa as reigning WWC Women's champion, was jealous when Amarillis was brought into the company, correctly believing she would soon be challenging for her title. She was also envious of the fact people gushed more about Amarillis being pretty than they did about Tigresa, which lead to Tigresa attacking Amarillis in an attempt to ruin her good looks, [[SelfFulfillingProphecy which lead to Amarillis challenging for the title]].

One of MarySue's more noticeable traits is that many characters do not suffer from the Green-Eyed Monster about her, regardless of how plausible it is that they would not envy her gifts or be jealous of her romantic success. Either that, or the MarySue (specially the of SympatheticSue kind) will suffer horrific, mean-spirited attacks inspired by the Green-Eyed Monster, specially if it's from [[DieForOurShip the character who poses the biggest threat to her and her beau's True Love]].

* In ''{{Theatre/Lizzie}}'', the title character is being raped by her father, but later starts a relationship with the neighbor, Alice. Soon after, Lizzie's father kills the birds in the barn, which were one of Lizzie's few sources of joy and comfort. It's heavily implied this action was spurred on because he knows (or at least suspects) that Lizzie's involved with Alice and is jealous. (Bear in mind, the barn where the birds lived is ''also'' where Lizzie meets with Alice in secret.)

* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': Kaila envyed Keela for taking her place as the Master of the Dammed's [[TheDragon Dragon.]] This, combined with the fact that Keela only did that so she could ''kill'' the Master of the Dammed, made Kaila ''despise'' her.

* ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'': Monika is one. [[spoiler:A ''major'' part of the reason Monika was driven to mess with and delete her friends is because she is [[{{Meta}} self-aware]] and is jealous that she didn't get a route.]]

* In In ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'', Peter's ability to eat endlessly and not gain any weight causes jealousy from both his parents. In one strip, when he makes a thousand-calorie chocolate shake because he has to ''gain'' weight for swimsuit season, Andy dumps it over his head. ("Nobody ever feels sorry for the skinny," he muses.) In another strip, Andy wears earplugs when he weighs himself, and Roger needs an extra strawberry on his rice cake when Peter loses a pound and a half simply by skipping another shake.

When the trope is not connected to love, but rather based on a character's envy of another's talent or success, they are DrivenByEnvy. TheLancer (among heroes) and TheStarscream (among villains) are particularly prone to the Green-Eyed Monster. The DarkMagicalGirl often envies the MagicalGirl. Inspiring envy is a defining trait of TheMinnesotaFats, and feeling it, of ClingyJealousGirl, CrazyJealousGuy, the FairestOfThemAll, and TheResenter. The {{Yandere}} is defined by it. The DaddysGirl, inspired by it, may regard ''any'' possible stepmother as a WickedStepmother, even if she's truly the sweetest person in the world. DividedWeFall is often motivated by it.
