* During the third season of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', the Judai/Yubel ship was also very messed up, though rather one-sided, until the very end when Juudai returns her love and fuses their souls.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' {{Fanfic}} ''[[Fanfic/MLPTheGamesWePlay The Games We Play]]'' sees Mare Do Well making [[TheBet a bet]] with Rainbow Dash: that she can get the pegasus to fall in love with her before Dash can unmask her. To this end, she teases and misleads her to suspect all of her friends, and takes a lot of enjoyment in how much she screws with Rainbow's head.

* ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' fandom sometimes does this with [[AxCrazy Evil Flippy]] and Flaky, or [[ScrewYourself Good Flippy and Evil Flippy]]. This is carried on in the show as well, especially in the latter episodes, where Flaky becomes terrified of Flippy and tries to get rid of him in any possible way, even though he doesn't kill her anymore and acts really nice to her. In ''Without A Hitch'' he acts nicely and tries to help her, but she constantly thinks he's following her to murder her so she ends up [[spoiler: stabbing him]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/NightmareFactory'': Due to Phirre's [[TheChessMaster chess master]] status, any ship involving him is this.
** With Emai X Phirre, she has to survive and outsmart the traps he's set throughout Nightmare Factory, which could be seen equally as mind games and not only traps. When they do meet in person, the games continue, resulting in Emai tricking him by making him think she could turn off his automatic protection before she [[spoiler: kills him by ripping out his heart.]] Phirre gets one last trick in however: [[spoiler: he tricked Emai into killing him, so he could meet a Hell Messenger and escape Nightmare Factory.]] This could be considered canon, as Phirre ''did'' confirm he'd been flirty with her. However, it was in a bonus episode, so it could be PlayedForLaughs and not canonical at all.
** Phirre X Kissae also has this dynamic at times, mostly through Phirre tricking them with his riddles, and Kissae cheerfully [[{{Troll}} trolling]] him.

* ''GrandmasterOfTheft'' has Deus canonically doing this towards Cassidy. While he generally enjoys causing trouble to anyone for sake of drama, she interests him more than anyone else because of her abilities as MagnificentBitch and drive to capture him.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/{{Elisabeth}}'' has Death/Elisabeth and Death/Rudolf. However, the Mind Games and MoreThanMindControl aspect really comes to the fore with the latter ship. Death always bodily manipulates Rudolf during their seduction duet, with the level of physical contact and mind control subtext differing between actors/productions.

* This is the plot of ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'' in a nutshell. Kaguya and Shirogane spend their time messing with each other in hopes of forcing a LoveConfession because they're too prideful to give one themselves.

* ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' the back and forth between manipulative SerialKiller [[ImAHumanitarian Hannibal Lecter]] and [[TheMentallyDisturbed unstable]] [[TheProfiler FBI Profiler Will Graham]]. Hannibal's interest in Will becomes more of that of a StalkerWithACrush and [[TheCorrupter inspires]] him to [[DrivenToMadness cause]] Will's SanitySlippage.

The end of the series, confirms Will returns Hannibal's feelings, right before [[spoiler: [[TakingYouWithMe he throws them both off a cliff]] (though WordOfGod was that they survived and had the series continued, would've been on the run)]].

** Also, Johan and Anna/Nina. She is probably the only person in the world that he cares about, but he's not above [[spoiler:mind raping her, allowing his henchman to kill her, and manipulating her into nearly shooting herself.]] And not to mention those certain "emails" he sent her about being "born to smother [her] with flowers." ... Whatever ''that'' means.
