[[ComicallyMissingThePoint Note that the triangle must be a right triangle for this to apply]]. If it is an equilateral triangle, {{Polyamory}} occurs, though if you have a PsychoticLoveTriangle going on, things may ''still'' not end well.

well. And of course, this isn't meaning ''literally'' murdering the hypotenuse.

* ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'': [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy Vega's portrayal]] here was a large part of the reason that gamers thought he was gay, until Creator/{{Capcom}} set the record straight years later. When he sees [[BigBad M. Bison]] perving on a live video feed of [[AmazonianBeauty Chun Li]], Vega visibly becomes jealous. Which doesn't go unnoticed, so Bison gives him the order to kill her. Vega acceptes without a moment's hesitation... [[spoiler: except [[KickChick she kicks his ass]] out of her apartment. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qXFunYSsc8 Literally]]]].

* Does the death of a career count? This happened with WWE Superstars TripleH and Chyna. Chyna was dating Triple H when she started in the company, and he was the start of her success. However, a few years later, TripleH starts dating Stephanie [=McMahon=] and suddenly Chyna is dropped back down into the Women's Division (Up until then, her entire gimmick was being a AmazonianBeauty who fought the male wrestlers) before getting fired completely. It's still unclear what happened here, either Stephanie didn't like her boyfriend's ex hanging around all the time, or TripleH (who is somewhat infamous for being an opportunistic ladder-climber) realized that Chyna had made him as big of a draw as she could, and simply threw her aside before moving on to Stephanie (who is head of Creative Writing and the boss's daughter.)

* The major subplot of the novel ''[[LoisMcMasterBujold A Civil Campaign]]'' featured Miles Vorkosigan [[MaliciousSlander being accused]] of doing exactly this during the events of the previous book ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Komarr]]'' (in order to free up the woman he was now attempting to court) by political opponents. The truth being part of an ultra-classified incident that couldn't even be revealed to some of the highest levels of government (if the bereaved hadn't been a direct witness, ''she'' wouldn't even have known), so things got rather... complicated.

* In ''Manga/FutureDiary'', it's shown very clearly that [[{{Yandere}} Yuno Gasai]] (pictured above) would be all too willing to kill ANYONE who got in the way of her "love" with Yukiteru (including his mother and father). In fact, Yuno is even willing to kill anyone who is less than ten feet away from Yukiteru simply because they are less than ten feet away from him. Heck, she's even willing to kill Yukiteru AND HERSELF just to be with Yukiteru. Essentially, if she doesn't kill him the world will end and they will both die. [[spoiler: If she does kill him then she can go to a different world's timelime, kill that timelime's version of herself, and then be with that timeline's Yukiteru. She doesn't seem to really mind that each of the world's Yukiteru are technically different people since her "love" for him is just to satisfy herself, at least until the end of the story, and she herself admits this.]]

* 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]].)]]

Sometimes, somehow, Bob gets the idea that Chris is the one [[GreenEyedMonster in the way]] of Bob's happiness with Alice, and if Chris were to somehow have an [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident "accident"]], then surely Alice would come to love Bob instead. It's true -- LoveMakesYouEvil.
