* Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart's opera ''Theatre/TheMarriageOfFigaro'' has… (deep breath) okay, here we go: Figaro and Susanna are happy together and about to be married. The Count and the Countess are already married, but aren't happy. The Countess still loves the Count, but he'd rather be off reinstating the DroitDuSeigneur with Susanna (and it's implied he's taken full advantage of this same right in the past with other women). Marcellina has a weird crush on Figaro up until she learns he's [[spoiler: her son]], and she used to have a thing going on with Bartolo, [[spoiler: which is then reignited when they find out they still have a child]]. Cherubino is a heterosexual male in the middle of puberty and so by definition wants to sleep with every female he sees, but especially Susanna, Barbarina and the Countess. Barbarina reciprocates, and the Countess reciprocates in the sequel. Bartolo still doesn't seem to have quite got over his crush on the Countess from the first play. Oh, and Barbarina also seems to have once had a thing going on with the Count, but now she only loves him "like a kitten", as opposed to her more erotic love for Cherubino. And... the Count seems to have rediscovered his feelings for his wife by the end. [[InfoDump Got all that?]]

* Music/FleetwoodMac: The Music/{{Rumors}} album and tour. Before the start of the album, there was a married couple (the [=McVies=]), a committed unmarried couple (Buckingham and Nicks), and Fleetwood had a wife outside the band. As the album and tour was being made, Fleetwood divorced, the [=McVies=] divorce followed, Buckingham and Nicks were breaking up (the song "Go Your Own Way" is pretty much them playing their nasty breakup for Top 40 radio), Nicks started an affair with Fleetwood...add groupies, alcohol, and a small mountain of cocaine to make matters even worse, and ''all of them'' were stuck together on tour.

** There's quite the LD in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'' and its remake, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia''. Tobin and Gray pursue Clair, who has a crush on Alm. Celica and Faye (from ''Echoes'') also have feelings for Alm, while he only has eyes for Celica. Last but not least, it's implied that Boey has a crush on Celica while, in ''Echoes'', he also has BelligerentSexualTension with Mae. In the end... [[spoiler: Alm and Celica marry in the end; Clair either marries Gray or stays single if he dies, Faye never fully gets over Alm, Boey and Mae either marry or, if one dies, the other also stays single.]]

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is well known for its LoveTriangle, but things are a little more complicated than that. Tifa likes Cloud, who had a crush on her as a child. Cloud is oblivious to her feelings, and also to those of Aerith, who is attracted to him. Aerith still mourns the loss of her FirstLove Zack, whilst being unaware of the crush Tseng has on her. Meanwhile Rude laments the fact that Elena likes Tseng, whilst also admitting that he fancies Tifa. Yuffie has an unrequieted crush on Cloud, whilst Vincent broods over his lost love, Lucrecia, who didn't reciprocate his feelings, despite sharing them, and instead ran off to marry MadScientist Hojo. There's also UnluckyChildhoodFriend Johnny, who's liked Tifa for a long time, but CanNotSpitItOut.

** In WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM, Sonic was [[OfficialCouple obviously officially coupled]] with Princess Sally Acorn. Thanks to AdaptationDecay, RuleOfDrama dictates that Sonic and Sally are in an unending LoveDodecahedron with each other and everyone else. As a result, the comic's writers have a tendency to [[OutOfCharacterMoment rewrite the canonical romance]] to make the [[LoveDodecahedron highly complicated romance plots seen above.]] When Sally proposed that she and Sonic become a RulingCouple, UnfortunateImplications ensued: ''[[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sonic_is_sallys_consort.jpg she confirmed that Sonic is her]]'' ''[[HotConsort consort,]]'' thus making every one of those romances [[YourCheatingHeart adultery!]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Mipha is a childhood friend of Link's who harbors feelings for him, [[spoiler: even wanting to marry him]], yet it is unknown if Link felt the same. Zelda also appears to have developed a BodyguardCrush on Link and again, it's left up to the air if Link reciprocated those feelings. Kass's teacher was the court poet for the Hyrule royal family and fell for Zelda but she only had eyes on Link. There was also Kodah, another childhood friend of Link's, who also chased after him.
