* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' presents this as an objective to making sure your Senpai doesn't fall in love with anyone else.

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' presents this as an objective to making sure your Senpai doesn't fall in love with anyone else. There ''are'' non-lethal methods of eliminating rivals, such as getting them kicked out of school, winning their trust and convincing them to dump him, or setting them up with someone else...but that's not as fun, now is it?

* In ''Film/{{Batman}}'', an attempt at this is part of the origin of Comicbook/TheJoker. Mob enforcer Jack Napier is seeing [[TheDon mob boss]] Carl Grissom's girl, so Grissom arranges for him to be killed. He sends Jack on a job then tips off the police, with [[DirtyCop Eckhardt]] giving the cops under him orders to shoot to kill. During the shootout, Jack ends up falling into some chemicals, becoming the Joker.

** Griffith's no stranger to this trope even before the Eclipse. It's speculated by Judeau that the mission that he sent Guts on meant to kill Count Julius, who made an attempt on Griffith's life, may have been meant to kill Adonis, his young son (who Guts had accidentally killed during the mission in question) as well, since Adonis was being groomed to marry Princess Charlotte, who Griffith wanted for himself in order to achieve his dream of having a kingdom of his own.

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' has a... weird example. The one whose affections the murder is occurring over is [[spoiler:a computer program named Alter Ego]].

[[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.]]
