* The landmark ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' satire ''Superduperman'' by Harvey Kurtzman ruthlessly parodied this concept. In that story, Clark Bent, lowly nebbish clerk in a newspaper pines for Lois Pain but has an alter-ego Superduperman who is a big, tough, bully, and at the end of the story on revealing his identity, Lois dumps him because, "Once a creep, always a creep", mocking the idea that any one part of the double identity is "more" real than the other, and that a girl should have to settle for less once the secret is revealed.

** A more traditional version has [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Toshio]] being attracted to the blonde member of Cat's Eye not knowing she's actually his fiancee Hitomi (he ''did'' guess it, but she managed to convince him otherwise thanks to her sister Rui being a MasterOfDisguise and appearing as the blonde Cat's Eye alongside her. He was never fully convinced). To make things more complicated, Hitomi suffers from SecretIdentityIdentity, and both her personas are jealous of each other, much to her bemusement.

* The ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse superhero stories have a lot of fun with Paperinik and Paperinika, alias Donald and Daisy, as Donald and Daisy both hate each other's alter ego... But, much to their mutual horror, [[BelligerentSexualTension are also attracted to them]], leading to them fearing to cheat on their significant other with someone who is effectively their significant other.

Glen, Grant, the secret identity of the superhero The Ghost, is in love with Lucy (for whom he serves as Nanny to her infant daughter). Lucy only has eyes for The Ghost. At one point, when the Ghost sets an interview/date with Lucy, Grant actually starts feeling jealous of his alter-ego. Strangely, when he blurts out to her (as Grant) that he also has a date, Lucy is the one who starts feeling jealous of the other woman... who is herself.

* ''Literature/TheHost'' by Stephenie Meyer was quite literally marketed as "A love triangle with two bodies." It involves a [[PuppeteerParasite body-controlling alien]], her human host and the host's significant other.

** Things get interesting when Danny finds out that Amber is Amazi-Girl. Since he had previously told people that he was dating Amazi-Girl, he can't publicly date Amber. The problem is that Amazi-Girl is actually an alternate personality of Amber's that she created semi-intentionally. So when Danny kisses Amber, she interprets this as cheating on Amazi-Girl and ''freaks out''. Amazi-Girl has to take control before she gets violent, and breaks up with Danny to keep him safe from Amber.

** played out in an unusual way at the start of Series 8. Clara Oswald had been attracted to the young-looking Eleventh Doctor, who in turn (based on a later confession) even believed himself to be her boyfriend. After his regeneration into the (at first) colder and older-looking Twelfth Doctor, Clara found it very difficult to adjust to the new Doctor, and at one point even considering leaving him. The new Doctor finds himself creating an AnchoredShip scenario by suggesting his feelings for her had been a mistake. It ultimately takes a phone call from the previous Doctor (just roll with it if you don't know the show) to convince Clara to stay. The anchored ship remained, however, until later in the season when a more traditional LoveTriangle scenario emerged.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Matt Murdock and Karen Page have a case of this. Throughout season 1, Karen likes and supports the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, even defending him when Wilson Fisk tries to paint him as a terrorist, unaware that it's Matt. Then in season 2, while still having a liking for Daredevil, Karen begins to get attracted to Matt, even dating him briefly before the strain of his unreliability during Frank Castle's trial and her finding Elektra in his bed drive them apart. Despite this, she still has feelings for Matt, as she admits during a conversation with Frank Castle. In the season 2 finale, Matt discloses his secret identity to her, and the last shot of season 2 is of Karen sporting a stunned look as she realizes that the hero she admires is the same person as the man she had fallen in love with.
