* In "Series/{{OneTreeHill}}", Lucas and Nathan Scott both want to date Peyton throughout a large portion of the first season. However, it is not treated as a sibling-triangle [[InUniverse in-universe]], because the two are half-brothers who were not raised together and spend much of the same arc as rivals. When the two finally decide to become friends and acknowledge each other at brothers, they also stop competing for the same girl with Lucas dating Peyton and Nathan dating [[OneTruePairing Haley]].
* Played with on the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode ''Him''. Dawn falls for this guy (or accurately, his [[ItMakesSenseInContext love-spell inducing letter jacket]]). Then Buffy falls under his spell. They fight over him. A lot. And then the triangle expands into a pentagon, when both Anya and Willow (despite being a lesbian and all that) fall for the spell too.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Series/NCISLosAngeles'' when Kensi sabotages Deeks' attempt to use her as his unwilling wingman to pick up some women exercising in a park. She yells at him that she's not leaving him because of his job (as he claims), she's leaving him because he cheated on her with her ''brother''.

* In ''Literature/TheStainlessSteelRat'', Jim's twin sons James and Bolivar fall for the same young female agent. And she falls for both of them too, unable to decide between them. Fortunately, the triangle is resolved by the discovery of an alternate universe, which seems to double any signal sent to it, which includes physical objects. The woman ends up not only twinning herself, but the two identical copies share a HiveMind. In later books, this serves as a useful method of instantaneous communication across light years.

* This forms a large part of Strahd von Zarovich's backstory in the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' setting of ''TabletopGames/DungeonsAndDragons'', and recounted in the book ''I, Strahd''. He and his brother Sergei both ended up falling for a woman named Tatyana, but Tatyana chose the younger Sergei and Strahd decided to make a literal DealWithTheDevil in exchange for restored youth and power and killed Sergei himself on the day of his wedding to Tatyana. When he tried to woo Tatyana, however, she again rejected him and [[DrivenToSuicide threw herself from the top of Castle Ravenloft to her death]].

** Apparently, Ed and Al used to have this in their childhood, fighting over who would marry their friend Winry, who wasn't interested in either of them. Eventually, though, Winry did develop a thing for Ed, and Al gave up on her, instead falling into the role of ShipperOnDeck.
** In the [[Anime/FullMetalAlchemist first anime]], [[spoiler: Scar]] was in love with his older brother's girlfriend. She later died and [[spoiler:Scar's]] brother [[LoveMakesYouCrazy fell enough into despair]] to try [[spoiler:Human Transmutation to bring her back before his own death... creating the homunculus Lust in the process.]]

* Subverted in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry''. At first Shion seems to like the same boy as her identical twin sister Mion, though it's later shown she was simply [[TheGadfly teasing]] and hasn't gotten over her love for Satoshi, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Depending on the route, sometimes she [[ShipperOnDeck encourages Keiichi and Mion]] to get together, and sometimes she sabotages their relationship out of jealousy. Like everyone in that story, [[ThereAreNoTherapists she has issues]].

* ''Manga/WanderingSon'' initially had a LoveTriangle between two siblings. In middle school Maho fell for a boy named Riku, so she asked her {{transsexual}} sister Nitori to dress up as a girl after Riku had fallen for her. Even after he finds out Nitori's sex he seems to be somewhat attracted to Nitori. It eventually faded though and he and Maho became a happy couple [[spoiler:who are still together even at the end, when Shuuichi goes off to college]]. It's never quite said whether Nitori herself had feelings for Riku.

* In the backstory of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', in accordance with Valyrian tradition, Aegon Targaryen (later known as [[FounderOfTheKingdom Aegon the Conqueror]]) was [[ArrangedMarriage required]] by his parents to marry his [[BrotherSisterIncest older sister]] Visenya, but he was in love with his younger sister Rhaenys. His solution was to [[MarryThemAll marry both of them]], which was unusual, but allowed. Understandably, Visenya was not happy about having to share a husband with her sister, especially since Aegon favoured Rhaenys and named their son Aenys as his heir instead of Visenya's son Maegor, who was much more martial and warrior-like. Even after her sister's death, she still hated Rhaenys and [[NeverMyFault blamed her]] for Aegon wanting nothing to do with her. She got her revenge ([[RevengeByProxy sort-of]]) long after her siblings' deaths, when she poisoned her [[EvilStepmother stepson]]/[[EvilAunt nephew]] when he sought refuge with her and [[MotherMakesYouKing installed]] Maegor on the throne after Aenys's death.
