* In ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'', this is implied between the three main characters, Emp + Thug Boy + Ninjette. Emp and Thug Boy are in a very happy relationship with Ninjette as Emp's best friend. But not only are Thug Boy and Ninjette attracted to each other (he even accidently felt her up when the three of them were sharing a bed after Ninjette underwent a traumatic experience), but it's implied that Ninjette is attracted to Emp, and Emp has described herself as a "three drink bisexual." The possibility is even acknowledged during a conversation between Ninjette and [[EldritchAbomination The Caged]] [[SealedEvilInACan Demonwolf]], though Ninjette refuses to divulge her fantasies. Sometimes it's subtle, sometimes it's ''incredibly'' unsubtle.

* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'': Merlin + Arthur + Gwen are destined to rule Camelot together. Merlin and Arthur are the FanPreferredCouple; Arthur and Gwen are the OfficialCouple; Merlin and Gwen were {{Ship Tease}}d and are BirdsOfAFeather PlatonicLifePartners with BigBrotherInstinct toward each other. A dream sequence showed Arthur crowning Guinevere Queen of Camelot whilst Merlin watches with a look of abject adoration on his face (most of their scenes together involve them staring at each other lovingly), and oh look, Gwen and Arthur have gone on a private outing to celebrate their anniversary. Wait, is that…? Yes, they brought Merlin along on their anniversary date. Clearly, he's also married to them both.

* The season 3 finale of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' has this between Star, her best friend Marco (who are clearly in love with each other) and her boyfriend Tom (who also considers Marco his best friend). First there's [[BigBad Meteora]] referring to Marco as Star's "other boyfriend" when taunting Star with Marco's unconscious body after knocking out Tom. And in the second to last scene of the episode, Star is hugging Marco after he's revived and Tom says he's going to make it awkward before pulling them into an oddly romantic-looking group hug, which neither oppose to. Tom and Marco also share plenty of HoYay through the episode, with Tom carrying his unconscious body around and defending him with an HeroicSacrifice even when [[spoiler:Marco reveals to have kissed Star:]].

* As shown above, ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' has teased this with Archie, Betty, and Veronica a few times over the decade. It never gets taken seriously though, as each girl wants Archie for herself.

** There's also a lot of subtext for Turk + JD + Carla + Elliot, with each possible pairing expressing a lot of attraction and affection (examples: Turk having sexual fantasies about Elliot, and Carla imagining being happily married to Elliot).

* In ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'', Holly J starts dating a boy named Declan. Unfortunately, Declan's sister, Fiona, is very… possessive of him, and constantly tries to sabotage their relationship. One especially blatant attempt at this ends with Fiona kissing Declan. ''Voluntarily.'' This wouldn't count as an example of the trope, except for the part in the next season where Fiona goes through character development, realizes she is bisexual, and kisses Holly J. Again, voluntarily. And Holly implies she is still in love with Declan, who, before their breakup, told both girls they had to make up because he wanted to spend the summer with both of them. Ahh, soap operas.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'': Although [[ShipToShipCombat Germany and Japan were fighting over Italy]] for much of the story, there was some [[{{Subtext}} subtext]] for a threesome found in the summary and in the fact Italy said "they" instead of "him" or "her". The subtext eventually evolves into ''[[OneTrueThreesome full-blown text]]'' after Italy asked both Germany ''and'' Japan out and the two [[PairTheSuitors fell for each other too]].
