* Yuna from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''. [[spoiler: When she finds out that Seymour killed his father and plans more deaths she agrees to marry him, so she could get close to him and kill him and later, when he's already dead she marries his ghost so she could send him to the Farplane, making her rare heroic example of this trope.]]

* ''Literature/SisterhoodSeries'' by Creator/FernMichaels: Starting with ''Final Justice'', Little Fish is set up to be a love interest for Countess Anne "Annie" Ryland de Silva and Stu Franklin is set up as a love interest for Isabelle Flanders.

The final blow comes when Little Fish and Stu Franklin are revealed to be CoDragons for BigBad Henry "Hank" Jellicoe - as well as cold-blooded murderers. Ouch!

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': In addition to being a SixthRangerTraitor, the series's version of Terra was this to Beast Boy. It was implied that (unlike the original Terra), she ''did'' like Beast Boy back, trying to save him from the rest of the Titans' fate, but not enough to choose him over Slade. [[spoiler: She ultimately rebelled against Slade when Beast Boy confronted her upon her deeds, and then performed a HeroicSacrifice to save the whole city as well as the Titans themselves. ]]

This character, as mentioned, is almost always female, and while she may pull a HeelFaceTurn (often by revealing that she [[BecomingTheMask became the mask]] and genuinely fell in love with the protagonist), they rarely if ever get back together. She is occasionally a HoneyTrap as well as TheMole, but not always; sometimes the fact that she's a love interest and the fact that she's a traitor have nothing to do with each other. Done badly (or done very well) this can be a ShockingSwerve.
