* 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.

** Finn toward Rachel any time she's dating someone not him: in "Laryngitis" he accompanies Rachel to the doctor's surgery in order to instruct her to break up with Jesse because Jesse doesn't 'get her' as well as Finn does, then openly pervs on her as she gets changed behind a screen, and in "Prom Queen" he insults Jesse repeatedly and punches him in the face for slow-dancing with her at the junior prom - while he himself is supposed to be another girl's date.

** 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.

** Many ''Law and Order'' episodes have this, most of them taking place during ''LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit''.
* Used on ''LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' with quite a twist: a cellist is attacked and continues to get threatening messages before being shot. The detectives find the man who's been stalking her, but he claims never to have attacked her. It turned out his landlady also insanely believed herself to be in a relationship with the stalker, and ''she'' threatened and shot the girl out of jealousy!
