* ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'': {{Disney|Channel}} comes back to this trope time and time again. On ''[[SecondaryCharacterTitle Good Luck Charlie]]'', another sitcom, there is [[GenderBlenderName Teddy]], the main character. Her brother, has a friend named [[BlackAndNerdy Emmett]], who has a crush that's basically been built up by him into a full blown relationship with Teddy as his girlfriend. As usual per the KidCom genre, it's played for laughs.

* A victim of the week in ''Series/Motive'' seems to be the "other woman" engaged to a pilot who's already engaged to another woman. She's seen wearing his family's wedding ring and photos of them together. However, when arrested for her murder, the man reveals that they only sat next to each other on a plane ride and the woman invented the entire relationship from there. She stole the ring, photoshopped images of them together, assumed he was only marrying another woman for money to support them and even tried to push the real fiancee down a flight of stairs. When the pilot confronted her on the delusion, she attacked him and he killed her in self-defense.

* Rebecca Bunch, the main character from ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'', is obsessed with her old ex-boyfriend Josh Chan and sometimes "accidentally" runs into him, even moving across the country. However, this is also a {{deconstruction}} - Rebecca has legitimate mental problems, like anxiety and depression, and Josh reminded her of a time when she was happy. And Josh himself doesn't seem to mind, although he also seems oblivious to her feelings about him.

** By the way, the episode, which has been uploaded to video sharing sites, shows just how far times have changed. In 1980, all it takes is the zany scheme to make Elliot finally take the hint. This was before awareness of obsessive stalking, of which Elliot's behavior borders on, high-profile cases involving murder (e.g., Rebecca Schaeffer) and stalking laws were enacted. Today, Barbara would have Elliot arrested for stalking or in the very least, have the police sternly warn him to stay away from her or face arrest.
