** 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.
** played straight in the 2016 Christmas special, "[[Recap/DoctorWho2016CSTheReturnOfDoctorMysterio The Return of Doctor Mysterio]]". Glen, 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.

* ''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.

* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' did the good ol' fashioned LovesMyAlterEgo, but in two different ways. The first is a pretty straightforward example: Danny likes [[AlphaBitch Paulina]], but she likes his superhero form, Danny Phantom. The second is a DatingCatwoman-style [[InvertedTrope inversion]]: Danny and [[WellIntentionedExtremist Valerie]] like each other, but Valerie ''despises'' Phantom and wants nothing more than to [[TheHunter destroy him in numerous painful ways]]. She nips their romance in the bud, ironically [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies to protect Danny from his own alter ego]].

* In Creator/{{Disney}}'s version of ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'': Prince Phillip was not enthralled with his future bride Princess Aurora when he saw her as a baby (and he was a little boy no older than five, taking peeks on her cradle), and still isn't looking forward to it, when suddenly he meets a beautiful "peasant girl". Simultaneously, she falls madly in love with the mystery man as soon as she meets him and is devastated to learn that she can never see him again because of her arranged engagement to Prince Phillip. She has no idea that the two are one and the same. Which, technically, makes this a Two-Person Love ''Square''

* In Creator/AbbottAndCostello's version of ''Jack and the Beanstalk'', this was part of the basis for the romantic subplot. Princess Eloise is supposed to marry Prince Arthur, but they've never met. They both get kidnapped by the giant, call themselves Darlene and Arthur, and fall in love.
