* A variant of sorts occurs in ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' in regards to Shin, Yuria and main hero Kenshiro. Shin is in love with Yuria, who is in a relationship with Ken. The variant here though is that Shin seems relatively self-restrained... until Jagi, Ken's arsehole brother, comes along and convinces Shin that Ken is too weak to protect Yuria and that Yuria would end up dead if she stayed with Ken any longer. Result? Shin and Ken fight, Ken loses, Yuria declares her false love for Shin to spare Ken's life and he takes her to his Southern Cross kingdom and some time later, Ken confronts him there. Fans know how the story goes from there.

* Touched on in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows''. Severus Snape is perfectly fine with [[spoiler:Voldemort murdering both James and Harry Potter (the latter of whom is ''barely a year old at the time'') if it leaves the field clear for him to [[ComfortingTheWidow comfort the grieving widow]] Lily Evans-Potter, to whom he's the UnluckyChildhoodFriend. He asks Voldemort to spare her, and turns to Dumbledore to protect her (specifically her) in case his boss doesn't feel like doing any sparing. A very disgusted Dumbledore promptly [[WhatTheHellHero calls him on it]]. (Oh, and it doesn't work anyway: Lily goes MamaBear and chooses an HeroicSacrifice rather than abandoning her baby to Voldemort... which [[ChekhovsGun turns out to be VERY important in the story as a whole]].)]]

* ''Manga/DGrayMan'': Komui is implied to be [[BrotherSisterIncest in love with his sister Lenalee]] and [[CrazyJealousGuy goes nuts if there's even a hint of a guy being interested in her]]. In fact, a way to wake him up is to say "Lenalee's getting married." In the novel, when Bak (who also has feelings for her) gives Komui a tea that makes one tell the truth he has a breakdown when Bak asks Komui "Isn't Lenalee free to love who she wants?" He takes this to mean that Lenalee is in love with a guy and immediately pulls out a machine gun saying "Then I'll kill everyone and then die!"

** Tatewaki Kuno: Has never actually tried to kill Ranma for Akane or "the pigtailed girl's" hand, and doesn't even seem to want to kill Ranma in their fights. His attitude of "if I beat up Ranma, then the girls I want will naturally flock to me for proving my studliness" does fit under the general umbrella of this trope, but lethal force is not his intention. Though... there is the way he starts swinging around a live steel katana instead of his [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter bokken]] during the {{Tanabata}} and Failed Wedding stories, which probably inspired his fanon reputation.
