It's theorized the reason he tells Aura that they should kill Sasaki together is because he knows Aura has murderous inclinations towards Sasaki and seeks to protect Sasaki from Aura or so he can kill him himself so he is manipulating Aura for this purpose. His intentions towards Touka are further enforced when he asks Takeomi if he can borrow a picture of her.

** Before ''Kiva'', this was the solution of [[Series/KamenRiderDenO Ryutaros]], with the hypotenuse being Yuto Sakurai/Kamen Rider Zeronos, believing that doing so will win Airi's heart[[note]]Ironically, he chose not to carry out his original objective, to kill Ryotaro Nogami, Airi's younger brother, after realizing his death would make her cry[[/note]]. Of course, [[DenserAndWackier given the type of series Den-O is]], it's PlayedForLaughs, and he fortunately never actually carries the deed out.

Compare OppositesAttractRevenge. Contrast IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy, which may be subverted into this trope, and vice versa. Also compare the ScarpiaUltimatum, where the threat to murder the hypotenuse may or may not be carried out. Contrast IfICantHaveYou, for when it's the Cathetus (Alice, for those a little rusty on their geometry) that will be murdered. If this is done indirectly by setting the hypotenuse up to be killed, it's either TheUriahGambit (if Bob does it intentionally) or DeathOfTheHypotenuse (if the intent is limited to the author). Extreme SubTrope of RemovingTheRival.

* This almost always happens in ''AudioPlay/YandereNoOnnaNoKo'' with the selected girl killing someone she considers a threat to her relationship with the protagonist. The only time this doesn't really happen is in Sakuya's track who just sends two girls away when they come looking for the protagonist.
* Just about every guy in ''AudioPlay/YandereHeaven'' consider doing this to their rival under the belief that getting rid of the other guy will ensure that the protagonist will love him.
