* ''Film/TheRoaringTwenties'' has one between Eddie, Jean and Lloyd. [[spoiler:Jean and Lloyd end up getting married during a TimeSkip.]]
* While this was averted for the most part in [[{{Film/Thor}} the first movie]] (although it implied that [[ShipTease Sif was interested in Thor]]), it was advised that there would be a love triangle between Thor, Sif, and Jane in ''[[Film/ThorTheDarkWorld Thor: The Dark World]]''. But Thor still clearly loves Jane, and while Sif tried to show her affections for Thor, he remains [[ObliviousToLove oblivious to her]]. [[ShipperOnDeck Odin wants Thor and Sif together, like in the comics. The only real moment is when Sif passes Jane and glares at her, to which Jane glares a little back.

* ''Webanimation/TerribleWritingAdvice'' constantly advises throwing this in to the point of it being a RunningGag. Gets taken UpToEleven in the "Evil Empires" video, in which the narrator admits that evil empires are one of his favorite clichés, only for an [[VisualPun actual love triangle]] to come in and complain that it thought it was his favorite cliché, putting him in a LoveTriangle with this very trope, and TheEmpire.

*** As of the conclusion of the story, Dave and Karkat are canonically a "thing", though it's not specified exactly ''what kind of'' "thing" (it seems to have both black and red elements, somewhere in the vicinity of VitriolicBestBuds).

*** Carol/Hal/GL also threw Carol's alter ego [[StalkerWithACrush Star Sapphire]] into the mix for extra bonus fun. Retcons have made Star Sapphire not so much evil ''per se'', just ... [[BlueAndOrangeMorality persistent and perhaps a bit delusional]].

** First one is Lief, Jasmine and [[FemmeFatale Neridah]]. Lief finds himself attracted to Neridah (for reasonable [[SheFu reasons]]) and Jasmine does NOT like it. Neridah plays around with gullible Lief making him lower his guard and then proceeds to attack him and knocks him out [[TournamentArc Rithmere Games]], Jasmine is not in the least bit sympathetic with his loss. Whenever Neridah shows up again in the show, she sure to be melodramatically grabbing hold of Lief and Jasmine [[ClinglyJealousGirl getting pissed]], this got so annoying many fans wished Neridah would die like she did in the books.

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' has used this trope repeatedly throughout its run. The major one was the triangle of Guts, Casca, and Griffith. Guts's and Casca's romance with each other is undercut by their (separate) loyalty and attraction to their leader, Griffith. Said attraction is emotional, with implied physical undertones in both cases. Griffith himself seems incapable of entirely returning either's feelings, but does care deeply for both and shows a certain amount of emotional and [[HoYay physical attraction to Guts]]. [[spoiler:No, it does not end well.]] Later, the initial triangle is echoed in the relationship between Serpico, Farnese, and Casca: [[spoiler:Serpico seems to be in love with Farnese, who needs him very much but seems to be paying more attention to Casca.]] There are hints of a triangle between Isidoro, Schierke, and Guts as well (which is kinda werid considering, Guts looks after both of them like their his kids). [[note]]However, if one adds [[spoiler:Judeau]] to the first triangle and [[spoiler:Roderick]] to the second one, it begins to seem more like a LoveDodecahedron...[[/note]]
** A love triangle would be between Guts-Casca-Farnese. Currently, Guts is still completely in love with Casca, who unfortunately can't love him back due to a [[GoMadFromTheRevelation series of]] [[RapeAsDrama unfortunate events]], but he is devoted to her and only her and it is, in fact, the whole reason why Guts is on [[FindTheCure his current mission]]. Farnese, on the other hand, is in love with Guts, but he doesn't see her as anything more than Casca's caretaker. While she cares for Casca a lot (which brings on [[LesYay some more implications]]) and she knows that it really isn't Casca's fault for acting like such, Farnese still can't fight with her inner feelings that Casca is ungrateful toward Guts [[TheResenter which causes some resentment on her part.]] Wonder how that's going to turn out...

There are hints some form of a love triangle between Isidoro, with Isidro, Schierke, and Guts as well (which )which is kinda werid considering, Guts looks after both of them like their his kids). [[note]]However, if one adds [[spoiler:Judeau]] to Both children seek his care and approval, Isidro getting jealous when Schierke shows greater talent than he does. Schierke also having a school-girl crush on Guts while bickering with Isidro who has some unsaid feeling for her makes things more difficult. Really Guts treats them like son and daughter so any romantic thoughts are solely on Schierke's end, the first justification is that she has a [[DaddyIssues father complex]].
*** Gut's place on that
triangle and [[spoiler:Roderick]] to the second one, it begins to seem more like a LoveDodecahedron...[[/note]]
is replaced by Isma who Isidro is attracted which Schierke finds annoying.

** Kusuha might have been in there at some point, but she was destined for Bullet by [[OriginalGeneration game of origin]].



* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' in the entertaining {{Filler}} of Gohan in high school before the Babidi saga, Gohan gets into short lived love triangle with Videl and [[JerkJock Sharpner]] who is love with Videl who is beginning to have feelings for Gohan who is disguised as Great Saiyanman. Videl successfully makes Sharpner jealous of Gohan and he spends to whole episode trying to unmask him but is foiled though hijinks.
** Since Gohan other female classmates, Erasa and Angela was also had big crushes on Gohan while Videl was still chasing him that also counts. All put to rest when Gohan marries Videl.
* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' has a not-exactly-love-triangle... Kyo and Yuki never precisely compete '''for''' Tohru, but they both care about her and their rivalry sometimes extends into this. (Creating multiple [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Crowning Moments]].) It shifts to [[spoiler:Kyo/Tohru/Momiji]] about halfway through the manga, which plays the trope completely straight.
** Then there was the twisted LoveTriangle in the manga, which involved [[spoiler:Shigure, Akito and Kureno]]. It was solved in the end: [[spoiler: Shigure and Akito get together, while Kureno goes with Uotani.]]
