* Dan Humphrey fills this role for Chuck and Blair at various points in ''GossipGirl'', and for various reasons. In season two, while Chuck and Blair are both insisting that they [[ItMakesSenseInContext can't be together unless the other person says "I love you" first]] Dan deliberately sabotages them simply because he doesn't like them and believes they deserve to be unhappy. Later on he does this many times over because he's fallen in love with Blair. In the end, though, Chuck and Blair end up HappilyMarried.

[[/folder]] * In ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'' Heathcliff fired a ShippingTorpedo at Buwaro's crush on Kieri, by pointing out several reasons why Buwaro wasn't good enough for her. Ironically, this ended up resulting in a RelationshipUpgrade when Buwaro almost died protecting Kieri as a result of this. It also lead to Buwaro being inspired to become stronger and smarter for Kieri.

* Vidal Vordarian from ''Literature/TheVorkosiganSaga'' launches one of these straight between [[ScienceHero Countess Cordelia Vorkosigan (nee Captain Cordelia Naismith)]] and [[OldSoldier Count Aral Vorkosigan]]...by telling Cordelia at a ball that [[ValuesDissonance Aral is bisexual.]] It fails to detonate--Cordelia, [[FreeLoveFuture a Betan scientist,]] absent-mindedly agrees that [[BiTheWay yes, he was]], visibly shocking [[NobleBigot the very Barrayan Vordarian]]--but it's a rare example of a ShippingTorpedo that feeds into both characterization and a major plot point: once Cordelia ''realizes'' Vordarian was trying to destroy her marriage, she immediately suspects him of being exactly the kind of person who would engineer an assassination attempt on her recently-promoted-to-Imperial-Regent husband. [[spoiler: She's right.]]

** Barney is also openly this for Ted/Robin when they date in Season 2.2, presumably because he doesn't want to [[FriendVersusLover lose his wingman]]. Ironically, this is before [[spoiler:Barney falls in love with Robin, after which he [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy gives Ted his blessing]] to be with Robin several times]].

* Lily from ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' is this for many of Ted's girlfriends, as he has a habit of thinking horrible women who aren't looking for a meaningful relationship and who invariably dump him are "the one", and Lily winds up actively sabotaging several of his relationships. Ted does ''not'' take this revelation well, especially when it slips out that Robin was one of the girlfriends in question.
