* In ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'', Sister Finland has a thing for Sweden, who is in a committed relationship with his boyfriend Åland. It doesn't go quite like you'd expect, though, since she's either unaware of his true orientation or doesn't really care, and he knows her to be a [[BewareTheQuietOnes stoic]] [[AxCrazy psycho]] who [[{{Yandere}} probably wouldn't take no for an answer]] (at least [[IfICantHaveYou not without killing him in the process]]), so he reluctantly accepts it to the point that he has a kid with her to hide his homosexuality (since he also has, or at least had, [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday issues with accepting his preference and having people know about it]]). Åland, meanwhile, seems mostly unaware of it, only appearing to know anything about it at the christening of the child (and being as shocked as you might expect). Since the relationships between characters are loosely based on how the nations they represent interact with each other in real life, though, it's fair to expect that this LoveTriangle has some plot holes for [[RuleOfFunny the sake of comedy]] (though it's also possible that Åland knows how Sister Finland is and understands Sweden's difficult position).

** Implied between Craig Boone and Manny Vargas. When Boone's wife went missing, Manny could barely hide his joy, leading to Boone ending their friendship. Conversation with Manny (particularly if the player has a certain perk) shows that Manny was always jealous of Carla (though her generally unpleasant demeanor didn't win her any favors), though Boone is apparently unaware of his true feelings.

* In the ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' fanfic ''Fanfic/BecomingFree'', Freya kissed her childhood friend Greta when she mistook their bond for romantic. Greta reacted badly. She ran off, told her family, and later that day her family came and burned down Freya's house. They likely would have harmed Freya if she hadn't escaped.
