* In ''FiddlerOnTheRoof'', the traditional ArrangedMarriage custom is portrayed as an emotional and social affair between the groom and the father, the bride hardly being relevant to the process. And thus the plot is setting up for a [[ChildMarriageVeto massive backfire]].
* ''SweeneyTodd'' is playing the DestructiveRomance version of this trope with Judge Turpin. Mutual bonding in the scenes with the "Pretty women" song, and on the surface helping with the plan to force Todd's daughter to marry Turpin. However, the one Todd plan to sacrifice is not his daughter, but secretly Turpin instead.

* The opening trap in ''Film/{{Saw 3D}}'' involves two men, Brad and Ryan, and their shared girlfriend Dina, the two having never realized until now that she was [[YourCheatingHeart cheating on each of them with the other]]. Only two of them can escape the trap with their lives. As Brad and Ryan try to kill each other, while Dina roots for whoever is winning in their life-and-death struggle, they slowly realize that she is the entire reason why they're in their predicament in the first place, and that their lives and friendship are worth more than their respective romances with Dina. They make up and [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe turn the giant saw against her]].



* In ''AMidsummerNightsDream'', Hermia's father is trying to force her to marry Demetrius, leading to this exchange with Lysander, the man she really loves:

** Come to think of it, this trope shows up a lot in Literature/TheBible (the above being just one instance). Mainly because the women of that time and place (and the times and places the books were written, translated, and compiled) [[ValuesDissonance were seen primarily as]] [[BabyFactory passive breeding chattel]].

* In season two of ''WebVideo/TheGuild'', Zaboo gets into a CockFight with Cyd's stuntman love interest. Cyd is initially flattered by the attention (although she feels guilty about it), but as the fight goes on, Zaboo and the stuntman recognize each other as WorthyOpponents and the fight becomes much more about Zaboo fanboying over the stuntman and the two of them having a good time, much to Cyd's annoyance. It ends when they both decide she's not really worth fighting over anyway.

* ''ComicBook/DeCapeEtDeCrocs'': Two subversions in one: The two men fighting aren't the girl's romantic rivals (Armand and [[OnlyKnownByHisNickname the]] [[Literature/CyranoDeBergerac Swordmaster]] are the rivals for Selene, but Don Lope is intervening in Armand's (who's unaware he even ''has'' a rival in love) place: as the better fighter, he knows he can beat the Swordmaster), and as the two are arguing Selene manifests a personality other than DumbBlonde for the first time, claiming she's more than just a prize to be fought over. The two men, embarassed, go their separate ways. And when Armand learns about it, he takes everything the wrong way, from the idea of his having a rival to Lope being a better fighter. He goes to Selene without being seen to confess his love, and she confesses back... [[AllLoveIsUnrequited thinking he's the Swordmaster.]] It takes learning his friends are in danger to pull Armand out of his suicidal funk.

* In the ''BookOfGenesis'', Jacob's only daughter Dinah is raped by the prince of a local village while going out to visit her girlfriends. The prince decides he actually loves her, and asks his father to go see her father to make marriage arrangements. The king brings over large sums of whatever passed for wealth in that barter economy, and tries to persuade Jacob to allow the marriage, saying that intermarriage between the Shechemites and Jacob's tribe would increase the wealth of both. Jacob himself neither agrees to the terms nor disagrees, though, and deliberates with his sons, who persuade him to accept the terms. They do add the condition that all the men of the Shechemite village cut off their foreskins, which the Shechemites accept. And three days later, [[KickThemWhileTheyreDown while the men are still recovering, Jacob's sons slaughter]] the men of the village, rescue their sister (who was a hostage of sorts in the prince's tent or hut), and take the Shechemite women and children as slaves. Jacob says they shouldn't have done this, on the grounds that they would be considered enemies to other local peoples, at a time when they are just a nomadic tribe. His sons reply that [[RapeAndRevenge the prince shouldn't have]] [[DefiledForever defiled their sister]]. Not once does Dinah get a say in all of this.

Two men are technically fighting over a woman, or making up deals about her. Either [[LoveTriangle they are rivals]], or one has her as a LoveInterest while the other plays the role of the protective father figure. However, the whole thing is really about the relationship between these two men.

* In the first KingdomHearts game, Riku and Sora are supposedly in a love triangle with Kairi, but Kairi herself actually has very little screen time, spending the vast majority of the game off-screen and in a coma. The real point of the story is the boys' relationship with each other -- specifically, the way aimless competition with each other turns a once-healthy friendship into something bitter, broken, and increasingly violent. When you get right down to it, Kairi is just one thing among many for them to fight over.
