Added DiffLines:

* Saruhiko and Misaki's backstory in ''Anime/{{K}}'', as shown in the prequel novel ''Lost Small World''. [[spoiler: Subverted in that they do become friends again, and probably more, once Misaki realizes that Saruhiko really just belongs in the Blue Clan, not the Red - Misaki's myopic loyalty to the Red King made him think Saruhiko was just a power-hungry JerkAss, and [[JerkassWoobie Saruhiko]] [[ThenLetMeBeEvil went with it]] until the end of the second season.]] Another same-sex example.

* In ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' [[spoiler:June/Akane]] is this to [[decoy protagonist Junpei]] when [[she turns out to be the big bad Zero, who kindnapped him and 8 other people and put them in deadly game.]] Unlike most examples [[spoiler:her]] affection is be genuine(as confirmed by WordOfGod) and betrayal is more of a case of IDidWhatIHadToDo [[spoiler: since the game was actuallly designed to save her life in the past]] and the other person doesn't hold grudge.

* The BigBad of ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' turns out to be [[spoiler:none other than June/Akane]]. Most of her behaviour is acted, but the affection appears to be genuine.
-->'''WordOfGod:''' "My intention was to create the world's worst heroine."
** It's unclear whether WordOfGod refers to her true self or her false facade. Its not even clear whether this facade is even a false at all, as it is possible that the personality she puts on is real but she's simply deceiving everyone in terms of information.
** Akane is an odd case. She is Junpei's love interest and the main heroine, in almost every meaning of the terms, but she also happens to be the main antagonist (a well-intentioned one). At the same time, she also share the protagonist and point-of-view character role with Junpei. Yeah, its that [[{{MindScrew}} kind of game.]]

* While he's not a full LoveInterest due to his plot being mostly DummiedOut, Bishop of ''NeverwinterNights2'' for a female protagonist. He will always betray her to the King of Shadows at the end of the game, and there is nothing she can do to stop it; at best she can persuade him to walk away from the battlefield, but he won't rejoin her side. [[spoiler:[[RocksFallEveryoneDies And then a bunch of rocks fall on them both]].]]

* In ''Videogame/TalesOfXillia'', [[spoiler: Alvin]] was this to [[spoiler: Presa]] in the past. A rare case where the traitor is on ''your'' side [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder (well, at least half the time)]] and the one betrayed is a villain. [[spoiler: (Though she's actually a Type IV AntiVillain) It's implied she genuinely loved him, but... a compicated string of betrayals got in the way.]]
* Played with in FireEmblemAwakening: [[spoiler: The Avatar ''can'' be one of Prince Chrom's love interests if female, and has massive HoYay with Chrom if male... but the part where s/he kills Chrom and thus kicks off the BadFuture happens whether the Avatar is a male or a female ''and'' whether a girl Avatar is married to Chrom or not.]] Also, [[spoiler: s/he doesn't do it ''willingly'' but only when his/her body is taken over by the EvilGod Grima, whom s/he is supposed to be the vessel of... and the plot of the game as a whole is about ''preventing'' the BadFuture (and thus the Avatar's betrayal) from taking place.]]

** ''Film/CasinoRoyale'' has Vesper, playing along with Bond until she steals the money to get her boyfriend (who she's still in love with) back. However, it's suggested that she did fall for Bond as well, cutting a deal to save his life in exchange for going through with the theft. Bond's RoaringRampageOfRevenge in the next film culminates with the reveal that the original boyfriend is himself a traitor, seducing women with access to state secrets and using them to obtain and sell said secrets. Fortunately(?), Vesper's killed before she finds out about that facet of his personality. She dies thinking that she has at least saved the lives of the two men she loved.
