* ''Oscar'': Colette Barnier is courted by Baron Honoré de la Boutiniere, whom she rejects, and the Baron eventually marries her maid Bernadette. Meanwhile, Colette is ready to marry just anyone who's handsome enough. She takes her chauffeur Oscar as her lover, but when he's sacked by her father, she's almost as willing to marry her father's employee Christian Martin or the masseur Phillippe Dubois. While Phillippe does fancy her, Christian is in love with Jacqueline Noiret, a typist. [[spoiler:On top of it all, Jacqueline turns out to be the illegitimate daughter of Monsieur Barnier from his affair with his former servant Charlotte]].

Also, see GambitPileup, which is similar to this trope, but with gambits. Though Love Dodecahedra can be the cause of such pileups. The opposite of this is NoLovesIntersect. There are three kinds of stable Love Dodecahedra: 1) [[NoRomanticResolution everyone staying friends]], 2) [[MarryThemAll everyone marrying the hero]], or 3) [[DumpThemAll the hero abandoning his harem]]. Can also sometimes be resolved by SquaringTheLoveTriangle. Compare DatingDoSiDo, which is similar with the lots-of-tangled-up-relationships part but the relationships do not necessarily have to be in competition with each other. TangledFamilyTree can be considered a sister trope, and a Love Dodecahedron can turn into one of those if given enough time. Video games that care about such relationships may track them dynamically with RelationshipValues.

{{Love Triangle}}s are stressful and often heartbreaking. Add five or ten more people to the mix, and instead they [[CrossesTheLineTwice become comedy]]: Characters A, B, C, and D all love character E, who might love any of them, but can't commit for reasons of honor or basic wishywashiness. There's also character F, who ''might'' love E, and whom he might love back, but they get on each other's nerves so it's hard to tell. Meanwhile, G is sweet on C while H and I both love A. Except on alternate Tuesdays, when H's [[TheIdiotFromOsaka third cousin from Osaka]] expresses her intent to marry Character F's dog, who has an odd thing for D...

* ''ComicBook/StrangersInParadise'' begins with a LoveTriangle and then... [[SerialEscalation hooboy]]. Katchoo loves best friend [[GirlNextDoor Francine]] unrequitedly, then takes up with David because [[DoggedNiceGuy he has been in love with her for years]]. Then Francine, who had a crush on David, starts to sort-of [[IfItsYouItsOkay reciprocate Katchoo's feelings]]. [[TheDitz Casey]], unhappily married to Francine's ex-boyfriend [[{{Jerkass}} Freddie]] (who still loves Francine), falls in love with David [[LoveAtFirstSight at first sight]]. With their marriage on the rocks, Freddie pursues Francine while Casey pursues David and also Katchoo. Katchoo, unable to deal with [[DysfunctionJunction the issues of her past and family]], finally drives David away. Francine becomes engaged to Brad and then breaks off her engagement to be with Katchoo, but still cannot consummate the relationship, so a frustrated Katchoo sleeps with Casey on the side. When Francine discovers this she goes back to Brad. When confronted at gunpoint by Katchoo's sister Tambi (who insists that their two families produce an heir via David and Katchoo), David offers to produce a child with her in exchange for his life and Katchoo's release from the obligation, and after they attempt this Tambi secretly falls for David. David returns to marry Katchoo, but the two part amicably once she learns about Tambi ''and'' realizes she prefers women. Casey finally gets to shack up with David...then [[OneTrueThreesome Katchoo joins them so they can all be happy together]]. Eventually, [[spoiler: Francine leaves Brad for [[YourCheatingHeart cheating]] on her; David dies, leaving Casey to take up with Tambi, and Francine and Katchoo end up together for good.

* Subverted in ''Fanfic/FlashFog'': {{Deuteragonist}} Pencil Pusher has a big crush on Fluttershy, who is implied to at least like him back. This excites [[ThinksLikeARomanceNovel Rarity]] and [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak Rainbow Dash]] to the point that they [[ShipperOnDeck start meddling to try and get the two together]] -- Rarity more than Rainbow Dash. Unfortunately, this backfires, resulting in Fluttershy and Twilight Sparkle thinking that it's ''Rarity & Rainbow Dash'' who have crushes on Pencil Pusher, which leads to Spike fearing Pencil Pusher could be a rival for Rarity. The subversion comes because, after a couple of chapters of setup, Spike openly talks to Pencil Pusher about Rarity and is corrected, whilst Applejack, upon hearing about the situation from Rarity and Rainbow Dash, [[CuttingTheKnot drags all four of the mares into a private room and tells Fluttershy about Pencil Pusher's crush and Rarity & Rainbow Jack's efforts to get Fluttershy to notice him]].

* Despite being one of the more famous ancient cases of an OmegaCast, the [[Literature/TheBible Garden of Eden]] turns into this once you look at all the extracanonical folklore. Adam had, by some accounts, as many as three wives, of which the only named two - Lilith and Eve - are both said by some stories to have been seduced by the Devil - [=and/or=] by ''each other'' in at least one account. Add in that the Devil has occasionally been portrayed as the ''ex-lover of God'', and in other versions has a whole harem of succubi consorts, one of whom - Namaah - may have seduced or raped Adam and subsequently given birth to Asmodeus, the Demon of Lust, who - among many other consorts and would-be consorts because, again, Demon of ''Lust'' - is sometimes said to have taken Lilith as his mate and fathered a brood of demonic spawn by her. Lilith herself, meanwhile, ReallyGetsAround by almost all accounts, being simultaneously a consort of a whole slew of high-ranking demons depending on who you ask and also a succubus-like entity in her own right seducing or raping mortal men throughout the centuries - with her first mortal victim being recorded in some stories as ''Cain'', Adam and Eve's son, who also had an incestuous SiblingLoveTriangle story told about him where his sister - named Awan or Aclima depending on version - was betrothed to his brother Abel but then stolen by Cain as part of their [[CainAndAbel infamous rivalry]], while Cain's original betrothed - his ''other'' sister Jumella - ended up marrying Seth, Adam and Eve's ''third'' son. In all honesty, the tangled romances of Eden are such a mess that it's surprising we ''didn't'' end up with an [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_and_Steve Adam and Steve]] at some point.

* Many of Gioacchino Rossini's operas, especially ''Il viaggio a Reims'' (as it has basically no other thing for a plot). Melibea flirts with Don Alvaro though she loves Count Libenskof who gets jealous, Countess de Folleville loves the cavalier Belfiore who flirts with every girl in the neighborhood but mostly Corinna who rejects him because she loves Lord Sidney (who thinks his love is hopeless), and Corinna is also JustFriends with Don Profondo and platonically adored by all other men – got it all? Good.

* From ''VideoGame/CorpseParty'': Satoshi loves Naomi, who loves him back, but neither of them can spit it out. Seiko also loves Naomi, but can't confess because [[IncompatibleOrientation they're both girls]]. Yuka also loves Satoshi, but can't confess because [[{{Squick}} they're siblings]]. Yoshiki likes Ayumi, who is oblivious because she likes Satoshi, who is also oblivious. Mayu loves Morishige, who sees Mayu as a little sister, and Ms. Yui has ShipTease with Satoshi but ultimately he just reminds her of her childhood boyfriend who she hasn't seen in years.

* 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?]]
