* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' just after the one-tenth mark or so through the game gives you Asch/Natalia/Luke, with Natalia being attracted to both Asch and Luke, (Asch reciprocating and Luke never having liked her back). By the time Natalia has stopped being attracted to Luke (finally able to keep them separate in her memories and cheering on Luke's crush on Tear), there's hints she might be attracted to NiceGuy Guy as well as the emotionally distant Asch.

** One of the more audacious moves is the one from ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' shown in the page image, where Alto gets the attention of two {{Idol Singer}}s Sheryl and Ranka. What's audacious about it is that, [[spoiler: despite dispensing GALLONS upon GALLONS of ShipTease so that it could've gone either way, the LoveTriangle is ''never resolved'' in the show]]. Every [[AlternateContinuity subsequent iteration]] nonetheless features the LoveTriangle quite strongly ([[spoiler:and some actually end it]]).
*** ''The Wings of Goodbye'': [[spoiler:And finally, after years of this, the second movie resolves it, though every iteration is technically AlternativeContinuity]].
*** The novels, originally considered [[AllThereInTheManual set in the Series verse]], but WordOfGod suggests ''everything'' is AlternateContinuity, [[spoiler:hints at the ending being MarryThemAll]].
*** Sheryl's manga, ''A Kiss In The Galaxy'', [[spoiler:ended about as [[WeddingDay you'd expect]] of a {{Shoujo}} manga]].
