** Shakespeare was fond of this one. Envy is the primary motivation driving many of his characters, including Claudio in ''MuchAdoAboutNothing'' and Leontes in ''Theatre/TheWintersTale''.
** In ''AMidsummerNightsDream'', Titania accuses Oberon of this, and Helena's got it, in spades.

* This is the biggest weakness in [=MsChif=] and Michael Elgin's relationship, which otherwise seems to be held together by a very strong bond. Neither one of them can hide their jealousy well when seeing the other getting too physical with the opposite sex, which usually isn't too much of a problem since both had "made it" in the business by the time they had met but some jokers like Truth Martini have arranged such matches, [[TheGadfly likely on purpose]].

* 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 need an extra strawberry on his rice cake when Peter loses a pound and a half simply by skipping another shake.

Envy is the desire for some [[MacGuffin object, item]] or abstract notion (such as {{love| tropes}} or power), which can lead to hatred of the possessor(s) of said object. If they cannot secure the object for themselves, the envious party may go so far as to harm or ... ''[[MurderTheHypotenuse eliminate]]'' the possessor. If they're [[ItsAllAboutMe egocentric enough]], they may even [[IfICantHaveYou destroy/kill the object]]. The Envious party may not have coveted the object at all until they saw another person having or enjoying it.

The Envious party may not have coveted the object at all until they saw another person having or enjoying it.



Envious and jealous characters on the losing side of a Love Triangle will often fall into the trap of assuming things about their competitor - [[HopelessSuitor or]] [[ImaginaryLoveTriangle 'competitor']]. Such characters are seldom portrayed positively - most are villains - and as such they [[EvilCannotComprehendGood tend to assume some rather bad things about their rivals]]. Expect to see some element of WhatDoesSheSeeInHim on their parts. [[EvilIsPetty Furthermore, they may]] [[MaliciousSlander slander]] their rivals with accusations of unsavoury actions and/or attribute base motives ([[YouAreWhatYouHate such as]] {{pride}}) to their actions. Whether they actually [[BelievingTheirOwnLies believe there is a fundamental truth to such slander]] - or have even been manipulated by a third party - plays a big part in determining audience sympathy for them.

This is the motivation behind the bad kind of DeadPersonImpersonation. A character may attempt to exploit this with OperationJealousy. See also YoureJustJealous. FeetOfClay or ShroudedInMyth may prove that the envy was unmerited -- often to the glee of the envious. On the other hand, a story about the LonelyRichKid or some other SourGrapesTropes may demonstrate that the envy is wrong because the envied person really suffers more than the person doing the envy (and not because it's wrong to hate people for what they have).

Romantically, may stem from being LoveHungry and lead to a desire to MurderTheHypotenuse -- or be sacrificed because IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy. Occasionally, it can actually overcome CannotSpitItOut-- OperationJealousy may overtly attempt to engineer this -- or [[GreenEyedEpiphany lead to]] a LoveEpiphany. A man driven by it [[MamasBabyPapasMaybe will often unreasonably doubt whether a child really is his.]]

* ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'': Sekai and Kotonoha. VERY jealous of each other because they both like Makoto. The most infamous endings (as well as the one for the anime adaptation) have things ending very, ''very'' badly as a result.

* Caprice Coleman began to jealously guard his spot in Ring Of Honor after he was pitted against Samson Walker and Pepper Parks, two wrestlers the promotion had shown interest in. Jealousy ended up becoming [[TheResenter resentment]] when he realized Dalton Castle, a wrestler Coleman was initially supportive of, had become much more popular than him with the ROH crowds.
