* {{Buddhism}} has an interesting version: the demon king is named Mara, which means "death," but can also be called Kama or Mara-Kama, with ''kama'' meaning "love." He basically symbolizes everything that can keep someone from enlightenment, and tried to tempt the Buddha from meditation with his three daughters, Taṇhā (Craving), Arati (Boredom), and Raga (Passion). However, the Buddha only saw them as decrepit old hags, and his resilience was enough to earn their praise.

* ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' has Alonai, the EarthMother personification of love, innocence and life. While she initially seems too kindly and naïve for the [[EverythingTryingToKillYou setting]], she's sometimes portrayed in roleplay in more depth as codependent, violently [[GaiasVengeance protective]] of those she values, and willing to use MoreThanMindControl to keep their allegiance.

** Conversely, while "love" is stretching it, Mephala is a [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] whose sphere is "obscured to mortals", but who is associated with [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation, lies, sex, and secrets]]. As one can probably guess, she represents the darker and manipulative aspects associated with sex, specifically its ability to make mortals betray one another and destroy trust.

*** It should be noted that the ancient Greeks didn't view "love" between a man and woman as a good thing. Partially because it was considered an animal's instinct and a distraction from more important things such as war and philosophy depending on the area, and partially because they believed women to be objects, and therefore loving them was inferior to their "people" centered loves of agape and phillia. This led the anchient Greeks to see Aphrodite as a villainous figure.
