* [[ AllLovingHero agape]] (Unconditional Love) - This is the love that brings forth caring regardless of circumstance. The essence of ''agape'' love is self-sacrifice. It is also a decision, not fueled by pure emotions (theoretically). However, emotions such as the other three loves can provide a "booster rocket" into agape. Note that true agape is never self-destructive; it is not the willingness to sacrifice oneself that, say, someone with a GuiltComplex would have. It builds the soul, and, like the other types, fosters emotional health and self-confidence. It's difficult to express the differences between a MartyrWithoutACause and someone who's accepted agape love into their heart, but they exist; one key distinction is that someone might love a vile monster even while actively opposing him/her, even to the point of a MercyKill, like a mother might love a son that passed the MoralEventHorizon a long, long time ago and needs to be put down. Agape love need not always be spiritual, but it is often based in spirituality.

removing undying loyalty link from agape; loyalty is different from love. Related, yes, but different.

** Kismesissitude arguably qualifies as Eros-love as well--while it's characterized by mutual antagonism, it differs from the human concepts of hatred ('platonic' hate) in that it's based in a deep emotional connection, except focusing negative, antagonistic emotions where matespritship focuses on positive ones.

* This is the major motivation factor for the Jinnouichi family in ''SummerWars'', whom despite being rather extensive are very close to each other and feel a strong mutual connection to their matriarch Sakae. Also later applies to Kenji, whom the Jinnouichi come to treat as "part of the family."

* ''{{Skins}}'' loves this, and some particularly strong forms of it can be seen with Tony and Sid, and with Freddie and Cook - the latter of whom probably said "I love you" to each other more than they did to their actual mutual love interest, Effy.

Mac Guffin Girl is no longer a trope.
* All four kinds of love show up in the game ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', since the PowerOfLove is extremely important to the plot. Agape and Eros are the most prominent of the four. Bowser's one sided Eros for Peach nearly causes the destruction of the multiverse and it ends up being saved by the Eros (which also has traits of Agape) between [[spoiler: Lady Timpani aka Tippi and Lord Blumiere aka Count Bleck]]. [[TheDragon Nastasia's]] love for [[BigBad Count Bleck]] is definitely Agape because she loves him despite the fact that he does not return her feelings and goes so far as to [[spoiler: [[TakingTheBullet take a bullet for him]]]]. In fact, many of the games chapter's have different forms of love as their theme. At the end of the third chapter the needed [[PlotCoupon Pure Heart]] suddenly appears in response to the Phileo that Tippi felt when she is rescued. The fourth chapter's theme turns out to be [[spoiler: Storge, in the form of Squirps's love for his long dead mother.]] The seventh chapter's theme is Storge in the form of Jaydes's and Granbi's love for their daughter [[LoveFreak Luvbi]] when it is revealed that [[spoiler: [[MacGuffinGirl they created Luvbi out of the final pure heart]] in order to disguise it, but they did care for her just as they would if she was their real daughter.]] The characters [[StrawFan Francis]], [[PsychopathicManchild Mimi]], and [[LoveFreak Luvbi]] all badly want to have Eros although for Francis and Mimi it is on a much more shallow level.
