** The show did its own version of "The Chaser" short story, which had been previously adapted for ECComics in 1951. Re-titled "Loved to Death", it follows the same general plot, only sticking in a couple of extra knives at the end: [[spoiler:the guy kills himself to escape, the girl commits suicide in despair, horribly disfiguring herself in the process. The chump arrives in the afterlife, where he is ''joined by the girl, still hopelessly in love with him and [[AndIMustScream still horribly mutilated]]''.]]

* In the ''{{Pokemon}}'' videogames, the technique "Attract" can be used to make an opposite-sex Pokemon fall in love with your Pokemon (temporarily), so that [[TheDulcineaEffect it won't attack your Pokemon]].

Even on occasions where a love potion works exactly as intended (most often in the case of Love Only Person X), with the right target falling for the right person, the whole thing has a tendency to [[GoneHorriblyRight work a little too well]]. The user will find, to their chagrin, that being obsessed over to the point of absurdity either destroys what they found attractive about the love interest in the first place or is simply [[{{Yandere}} too much to handle]]. Or they might come to realize that they'd rather their love remain unrequited than ''artificially'' requited, thus learning a valuable {{Aesop}}.

* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' episode "Green With Envy", the Shredder tries to use a love potion on the turtles in order to distract them from his latest plan. Three of the four turtles end up ingesting the potion, and end up falling in love with the nebbish Irma.
* One episode of WesternAnimation/TheMask had a gypsy woman with a love potion that actually turned its victims irresistible to anyone of the opposite gender. When a sample fell on Mrs. Peenman, Stanley (a.k.a. the Mask) and Kellaway fell in love with her. When Stanley asked for a solution from the gypsy, she told him anyone that the potion wears off soon except when the person who fell in love with the user used some magical object. (the last part might have been made up to trick Stanley into giving her the mask) In the end, the potion fell on her, causing all men other than Mask to chase her, allowing the hero to chase the other girls.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' "Recipe for Disaster", all of Lion-O's attempts to woo Pumyra fail miserably. This includes the love potion he attempted to give her [[spoiler:since ''Tygra'' drank it instead of her. HilarityEnsues.]]

* In ''Literature/MaledictionTrilogy Catherine the witch (in her BackStory) is forced to prepare a love potion for her mysterious and highy dangerous employer. She has no choice but to fulfil the wish and while the potion works perfectly well, it all backfires horribly, leading to her being banned from the court and forced to live in the poorest slums of the city.
