* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has Aerith and Tifa being the main BettyAndVeronica for Cloud, although the date scenario has Yuffie as a Third-Option Love Interest, although you can go for the gay option with Barret.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' has an interested variation, the Veronica on each gender and sexual orientation combination is often the last one met, while the second option combines both aspects of Betty and Veronica. Bettys would be either Cora (for straight males), Liam (straight females), Gil (gay males), or Suvi (lesbians) and Veronicas would be either Peebee (straight males and lesbians) or Reyes Videl (straght females and gay males). Combining both aspects on all sexual orientations would be the good hearted turian smuggler Vetra and the very openly emotional angaran Jaal (after a patch made him a bisexual option).

* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion,'' Kaworu is arguably one for the tangled [[HotBlooded Asuka]]/[[SociallyAwkwardHero Shinji]]/[[EmotionlessGirl Rei]] dynamic, with the twist that [[IncompatibleOrientation he's a guy]] and Shinji is [[AmbiguouslyBi ostensibly heterosexual]]. The LighterAndSofter adaptation, ''Manga/ShinjiIkariRaisingProject,'' plays this whole thing much straighter: the relationship between Shinji and the girls is explicitly a LoveTriangle, and they're willing to team up against Kaworu. (There are a few other girls who temporarily hold this role for Shinji, but none are as threatening as him.)

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Sansa Stark is initially infatuated with both her betrothed Prince Joffrey Baratheon and pretty boy Loras Tyrell. It's later revealed that the former is a sadistic psychopath and abuses her terribly, and the latter is gay for Renly Baratheon, but in the meantime she's developed an odd chemistry with the much older and more violent Sandor Clegane.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Revenge}}'': Season One introduced Emily/Amanda's two major love interests: HoneyTrap victim Daniel Grayson and ChildhoodFriend Jack Porter, resulting in a LoveTriangle. Emily had strong feelings for Jack, but had to stay with Daniel for her plan and is implied to have some feeling for him as well. Season Two introduced the third option: Aiden Mathis, who met Emily at "revenge school" and is the only one of the three that knows all sides of her. While her feelings for Jack were strong, there is no doubt she was in love with Aiden. [[spoiler:Any chance Daniel had with Emily died by Season Three, and between Jack and Aiden, Aiden would've won (if only because Jack stepped aside), but he was KilledOffForReal in the Season Three finale. After that, it became obvious that Jack was going to be the winner, though Season Four did try to throw in some red herrings by introducing a ''fourth'' love interest in Ben Hunter, Jack's police partner, and redeeming Daniel. ''Both'' were promptly KilledOffForReal, and the series ended with Jack and Emily marrying and sailing off into the sunset]].
