* A DC {{Elseworlds}} story, "{{Superman}}/WonderWoman: Whom Gods Destroy", written by Chris Claremont, is set in a world where Superman made his first public appearance in the 1930s, when he met Lois Lane. Cut to the present day, where [[BettyAndVeronica Lois Lane and Lana Lang]] are in their seventies and are very close friends. Despite Superman's presence during WWII, the Nazis are still in power in Germany, due in part to the interference of Ares and several other Greek Gods. Another faction of Greek Gods, led by Artemis and Athena, grant Lois and Lana eternal youth and superpowers (Lana becomes the Oracle of Delphi and Lois becomes Wonder Woman), and they team with Superman to defeat Ares' faction. [[spoiler: Part of Ares' plan is to separate Clark from Lois and Lana, since their powers somehow bind them together. When Lana explains to Superman, "Ares doesn't want the two of you together," (referring to Clark and Lois), Hecate, the Greek witch-goddess, corrects her, "No, the three of you." By the end of the four-issue arc, Clark, Lois and Lana are happily living together in his Fortress of Solitude (the now young Lois changed her name to Lois Lang) in a polyamorous relationship.]]

* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'' is based around this trope. Initially set up as a traditional HaremSeries, it deviates from the norm because none of the girls care that the others like him too. In fact, several of them actively help the others get closer to Issei, culminating in the rest of the harem helping [[TheHero Issei]] and [[HeroesPreferRedheads Rias]] become an OfficialCouple. At least two of them stated they were waiting for this to happen before they went any further with Issei themselves. And for her part, Rias has no problem with polygamy as long as she's number one.

* The last chapter of ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' hints that this might be a viable option for Rito; at the very least, Lala is enthusiastic about to the point that it seems to be her preferred option. In the sequel, ''Manga/ToLoveRuDarkness'', one of the girls tries to open up this route (Lala approves), and is only hindered by Rito's belief in monogamy.

Compare MarryThemAll. Contrast NoRomanticResolution. The LoveTriangle or LoveDodecahedron can develop into this. When a foreign or alien culture is particularly accepting of this, you may get ExoticExtendedMarriage. See ThreesomeSubtext for when this is hinted in canon, and OneTrueThreesome for {{Shipping|Tropes}} examples. Not to be confused with [[AdaptiveArmor Polyarmory]].

* Her Royal Majesty Iono from ''Manga/IonoTheFanatics'' somehow manages to be in a romantic relationship with ''[[UpToEleven an entire kingdom worth of]] SchoolgirlLesbians''. And satisfy them all. Unless, of course, she is traveling abroad, in which case her paramours start a civil war, with one fraction believing in her eventual return and the other striving to bring her back by force.
