* ''FanFic/{{Hands}}'': The LoveTriangle between Andrew, Twilight, and Fluttershy eventually evolves into this, as the girls are willing to share Andrew if it means not fighting over him anymore.
* ''FanFic/{{Xenophilia}}'', whose author [[ShownTheirWork has obviously gone to some trouble to research actual real-life herd behaviour]], suggests that this is actually the norm in Equestria due to the relative rarity of male ponies.



* This is a recurring theme in Fanfic/TheDearSweetieBelleContinuity, apparently common in prior centuries in Equestria, especially among earth ponies, who (according to Celestia) nonetheless led the way in shunning the practice in more recent times. [[spoiler:It's still legal, though, so Luna decides to resolve her LoveTriangle with Shining Armor and Cadance this way. Cheerilee also suggests it to Big Macintosh, who is far less keen on the idea.]]



* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/314239/never-be-alone Never Be Alone]] has this form between the [[spoiler:Equestria Girlverse CMC, with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle inviting Scootaloo into it.]]



* Because of how much mares outnumber stallions in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', many fan works postulate that polygyny is an accepted and widespread practice in Equestria.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' mythology, Dibella, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric Divine]] Goddess of Beauty who is also associated with the [[LoveGoddess carnal and sexual aspects of love]], holds no limit on the number of lovers one may have. Instead, she demands focus on the quality of the essence of love, not the quantity.

** Mara, the Aedric Divine Goddess of Love, is associated with the familial, matrimonial, and fertility aspects of love. Despite this, depending on the religious tradition in question, she is coupled with several other gods. She's sometimes depicted as ''one'' of Shor's wives, along with Kyne. The old Nord tradition also makes references to her being the handmaiden of Kyne, ''concubine'' of Shor. Other traditions have her variously the wife of Akatosh, Lorkhan, or both. Sometimes the concubine of both. Yokudan tradition has her, as Morwha, as the wife of Ruptga. However, she has [[MultiArmedAndDangerous four arms]] so that she can "grab more husbands".

* While ''Manga/OnePiece'' makes no mention of whether polygamy is legal or not, it is at least known that the pirate Big Mom, one of the Four Emperors, has ''46 husbands'', with whom she gave birth to ''85'' children.

Given she's both a pirate with enough authority to basically be her own superpower, and quite insane, any legal restriction the World Government has on it matter not to her.
** The world nobles also practice extensive marriage, but given that they can ignore laws it also doesn't suggest if this is legal or not. These relationships are hardly healthy however given that many of the wives are grabbed off the street and dismissed whenever the male world noble grows tired of them.

** Aegon the Conqueror started the tradition when he decided to MarryThemAll and married both Visenya and Rhaenys. Each of them rode one of the three famous Targaryen dragons.
** Other Targaryens (descendants of the conquering triad) also went the poly route… if in very destructive ways that neither Aegon, Visenya nor Rhaenys would have have condoned, thanks to the StupidEvil ways they went about it. Two consenting wives at once? No problem. But Maegor [[TheBluebeard "the Cruel"]] had three at once, including ''kidnapped'' wives he [[UriahGambit gambitted]] into it after killing a couple of others. Um… recipe for disaster, mate. Aegon [[ReallyGetsAround "the Unworthy"]] was--at least--"just" TheCasanova and FatBastard who believed in open relationships on his end (just don't dare cheating on ''him''). Just as catastrophic as Maegor, though.
** It has been suggested than Daenerys reinstate the practice and--Aegon-style (the Conqueror, that is)--get herself a pair of husbands to ride her other two dragons.

dragons. Aegon's case is kind of an ExaggeratedTrope version of the idea "behind every great man is a great woman." It's clear that having ''two'' great women behind him is much of the reason he was so successful. Aegon was as least as much of a conqueror as Alexander the Great was in our world, but instead of dying young, he went on to rule his kingdom--and was by all accounts the greatest king Westeros has ever known.

* In a truly ''bizarre'' example, the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Hard to Say Anything" has Sweetie Belle pairing up Feather Bangs, who had just lost to Big Mac in a contest to win somepony's love, with the three fangirls who had been following him throughout the episode. It's not even a matter of "Pick one," she just encourages him to go with all three of them, and nopony acknowledges this as being out of the ordinary.
