* ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'': [[DoggedNiceGuy Sunny]] likes [[PrincessClassic Dawn]] who likes a string of different boys but is eventually accidentally [[LovePotion love potioned]] to like [[EvilOverlord The Bog King]]. [[JerkAss Roland]] cheated on [[BadassPrincess Marianne]] with an unnamed girl but tries getting her back. [[spoiler: [[WorthyOpponent The Bog King]] and [[BirdsOfAFeather Marianne]] fall in love, meshing the two [[LoveTriangle love triangles]] into a proper Love Dodecahedron.]]

* In ''VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt 2'', Gunvolt is in the center of a LoveTriangle with surrogate sister Joule, and Quinn, the girl who gave him and Joule a new home after the first game. Joule is very much a ClingyJealousGirl not just towards Quinn, but towards MissionControl Xiao as well, even though [[MistakenForGay Xiao's a guy]]. One of the bosses, Gibril, then tells Gunvolt she fell for him after she was bested in battle, to Joule's disgust. What really complicates the relationships is TheReveal in the ending, where [[spoiler:Joule is in reality a [[PsychicPowers Septima]] [[ArtificialHuman given human form]] derived from a girl named Mytyl, who happens to be the twin sister of Gunvolt's rival and nemesis Copen.]]

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' lets you get matters of the heart in a very tangled skein, especially in the endgame. For example, [[spoiler: Alistair]] could br engaged in a political marriage to [[spoiler: Anora]] and end up becoming [[spoiler: Morrigan's]] baby daddy, while still being in love with the Warden, who may have had a previous relationship with two other members of the party.

* Smaller version in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''. [[TheHero Kyo]] [[PlayingWithFire Kusanagi]] and [[GirlNextDoor Yuki]] [[HighSchoolSweethearts are in a relationship]] [[OfficialCouple already]], which goes by BelligerentSexualTension in some versions. However, [[IdolSinger Athena]] [[ActionGirl Asamiya]] is all but stated to be or have been in UnrequitedLove with Kyo in the SpinOff manga and games ''The King of Fighters KYO'' (and maybe in the AlternateUniverse manga ''KOF G''), whereas Athena's partner [[BadassAdorable Sie]] [[PsychicPowers Kensou]] is her [[CrazyJealousGuy VERY clingy]] DoggedNiceGuy despite how Athena herself sees their bond as JustFriends and either ignores or rejects his love declarations. And in the KOF:KYO manga we also have [[{{Adorkable}} Takaya Maeta]] who has a massive crush on Yuki [[spoiler: and wins a date with her]], as well as Yuki's friend Sanae who encourages Maeta's crush while saying she finds Kyo hot but never directly hitting on him.\\\
Additionally, {{fanon}} adds other vortexes to this "dodecahedron": Kyo and [[TheRival Io]][[AntiHero ri]] have LOADS of FoeYay, [[NaiveNewcomer Shingo]] can easily be seen as having [[HoYay a huge boy-crush]] on [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Kyo]] based on [[HeroWorshipper his massive fanboy-ing]] of the man, [[YamatoNadeshiko Chi]][[BarrierMaiden zuru]] is said to have [[LovingAShadow "envisioned" Kyo as an "eternal schoolboy"]] [[spoiler: and used that to create Kusanagi when BrainwashedAndCrazy]] so [[RelationshipWritingFumble take that as you will]] and in return Kyo is ''very'' protective of [[CoolBigSis her]], the KOF:KYO manga has Athena ''seriously'' worrying for Iori's almost non-existant mental health which she ''still'' does in KOF XIII, ''and'' XIII also shows that Chizuru is among the very few people that [[JerkAss Iori]] [[PetTheDog seems to care for a little]]...

* 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.

* ''FanFic/MiraculousLadybugVsTheForcesOfEvil'': Oh boy. Star Butterfly is crushing on Marco who used to be with [[spoiler: Jackie]] but broke up before the fic. Marco considers Star his best friend, but then Marco got attracted to Ladybug, who's actually Marinette. Marinette's primarily enamored of Adrian, but isn't against hearing Marco out later since she doesn't feel worthy of him. Adrian is Cat Noir who's into Ladybug (not knowing about her being Marinette), but he's also somewhat attracted to Star. Add into that Chloe being possessive of Adrien as her guy, and Marco thinking Star's still into Oskar Greason, and you've got a bit of a tangle of feelings to work through.

* 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?]]
