** Probably one of the most shocking revelation in the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' when the whole international comic book community finally learns that the reason why the crazy Joker never kills the Franchise/{{Batman}}, and the reason of the Joker's obsession of the Cape Crusader's attention (even going so far as being fanatically jealous and killing the Bat family for it) is that because he's... '''in love with him'''. Face it you just had a [[HeroicBSOD BSOD]] right there.

'''in reason TheJoker constantly obsesses over Batman and constantly targets and torments him is that...he loves him, and believes Batman loves him too. Creator/ScottSnyder has said that it isn't necessarily "love" in a sexual or romantic sense, but it's still there.
-->'''Scott Snyder''': People, I think, mistake it for a more literal kind of love. They'll ask me, like, "is Joker serious when he's like, 'we're married' and whatever?" But it's not really that. I think the Joker has a
love with him'''. Face it for Batman and he perceives a love for Batman, whether or not it's true, that transcends the kind of definition of love that we have, but that you just had can begin to understand if you look into that kind of twisted mind and see him as somebody who believes that love is almost a [[HeroicBSOD BSOD]] right there.religious and unequaled kind of devotion to someone else, where you'll do anything it takes to make them a better person and a better version of themselves. And Joker sees himself as doing that for Batman by bringing horrifying things to life for him that he's afraid of.



** Bromantic example also involving the Joker in ''ComicBook/GothamCitySirens''. Gaggy, Joker's pre-Harley sidekick and former best friend, is so damn jealous and resentful of Harley for supplanting him that he not only tries to murder Harley, but is also willing to take on Catwoman and Poison Ivy when they get involved.

* Malice from ''Comicbook/BlackPanther'' was a former member of the Dora Milaje named Nakia, who ended up going AxCrazy after T'Challa spurned her advances. Note that T'Challa was entirely justified in this case, as Nakia was underage ''and'' had previously tried to kill his ex-girlfriend Monica.

* Amora the Enchantress from ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor''. She has the usual mountain-sized ego associated with gods, but even moreso in regards to her beauty, and her self-image as a irresistible seductress. Will often fall into a screaming tantrum if she is rejected by someone she wants, or a murderous, jealous rage if some other woman takes someone she considers her rightful property. This is often the motivation for her attacks on female superheroes, or the girlfriends of male ones.

* ''ComicBook/{{Carnage}}'': Cletus Kasady and ''his'' symbiote have this relationship, with the latter willing to do whatever it takes to reunite with its beloved host when they're separated.

** [[VillainousHarlequin Harley Quinn]] may seem cute, but anybody who gets between her and "Mistah Jay" will regret it...if they live long enough.
*** An issue of the [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries BTAS]] comic book switched the roles. Joker is rendered sane and gentle by intense electroshock therapy, and actually starts treating Harley with affection. She can't stand it and tries to get him to return to his old personality, but he has no interest in violence and mayhem anymore. But when Batman shows up and Joker refuses to fight him, Harley announces that she loves Batman. Wherepon Joker says that he'll "'''just
have this relationship, with to rip Batman's lungs out'''" to keep her, and immediately returns to his old self.
*** This trait is carried over in
the latter DC Reboot even though Harley and Joker are in ''different series''. Harley is first seen hunting down and murdering the lawyers who put Joker away over the years in a desperate bid to get his attention after he left her.

* ''GreenLantern'': The Star Sapphires represent [[ThePowerOfLove love]] -- a dark, dark take on it. The original, parasitic Star Sapphire crystal specifically empowered [[WomanScorned females who had been unlucky in love]]. As a result, every Sapphire was some unholy combination of ClingyJealousGirl, StalkerWithACrush, and {{Yandere}}. Not surprisingly they also indulged in IfICantHaveYou and MurderTheHypotenuse behavior. [[OhCrap And they all had superpowers]]. And the embodiment of love (a being that serves the same function as [[BigCreepyCrawlies Parallax]], [[SpaceWhale Ion]], and [[TheGrimReaper Nekron]] to the Sinestro Corps, Green Lantern Corps, and Black Lantern Corps respectively)? It's called [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Predator]].

* Mystique again: in the X-Men story arc "Kill Or Cure" she obsessively pursues her ex-lover Iceman; she throws him out of the Blackbird, tries to poison him in hospital where he is recovering, and blows up a truck he is hitching in, culminating in a tearful confrontation on top of the San Francisco Bay Bridge: when Iceman refuses to join her in a suicide pact, she throws herself off (a typical last desperate gesture); she survives.

* The ComicBook/{{Venom}} Symbiote is a total {{Yandere}} for ''SpiderMan''. Its thought process can be summed up as "That bastard! How dare he kick me out! Didn't he realize how awesome I was?! Well screw him! I hate him, I hate him, I want him to die! He deserves to suffer for hurting me! But then... I won't have him! I know, I'll kill off everything he loves and then force him to take me back! Then it will just be us together ''forever''..." It's even been discussed, once in Marvel Age Spider-Man and in ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', both times Peter pretends to apologize and asks if it wants him to be its host again, which it does, and both times Peter mentions it's acting like a jealous ex-girlfriend. Also take a look at the ''What If?'' take on ''The Other'' storyline. Peter doesn't come back to life and the symbiote ''immediately'' abandons its current host to merge with Peter's body, becoming a new monstrosity called "Poison." It wants Peter so badly it doesn't even mind that Peter is ''[[{{Necromantic}} dead]]''.
** On the flip side, Brock is this to the symbiote itself. Or rather, was. As Anti-Venom, he's now dedicated himself to [[TheAtoner destroying it]]. and even before that, he ''hated'' all other symbiotes (and with good reason, because Carnage was [[EvenEvilHasStandards a killer who sickened him]]) and he [[HunterOfHisOwnKind devoted himself to killing them]].
* Franchise/SpiderMan's former wife Mary Jane was actually plagued by ''two'' male versions of this Trope, which were, oddly enough, connected. The first, and more obvious one, was her wealthy and AxeCrazy landlord Jonathan Caesar. His first attempt to kidnap her failed, leading to his arrest and imprisonment, but even while behind bars, he was able to use his money and influence to make her life miserable, blacklisting her among the modeling profession until she managed to gain a role in the ''Secret Hospital'' soap opera.
** The second one was much more subtle. After Caesar was paroled, a few folks who assaulted or abused Mary Jane (including a deluded fan of the soap opera and her angry director) were either murdered or assaulted. Mary Jane suspected it was Caesar's doing, especially when Peter himself was almost a victim, but Peter tended to doubt it, claiming that the attacks didn't fit his MO. Peter turned out to be right. The true culprit was the second Yandere (known only by his last name, Goldman) who had claimed to be a policeman, but was really only a clerk working for the NYPD. When Caesar made a second attempt to kidnap Mary Jane, Goldman murdered him in cold blood, and when Mary Jane rejected him, tried to shoot her too. But she tricked him into to getting close by offering to reveal the future plot of the soap (saying they'd have to change it if she were dead) and was able to knock him out with her purse. (Kind of makes you [[FridgeLogic wonder what she kept in it... Bricks?]])

** ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' villain [[VillainousHarlequin Harley Quinn]] may seem cute, but anybody who gets between her and "Mistah Jay" will regret it...if they live long enough.
** An episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had Harley getting closer than anyone else to killing Batman because Joker was spending all his time obsessing over him instead of her.
** And an issue of the BTAS comic book switched the roles. Joker is rendered sane and gentle by intense electroshock therapy, and actually starts treating Harley with affection. She can't stand it and tries to get him to return to his old personality, but he has no interest in violence and mayhem anymore. But when Batman shows up and Joker refuses to fight him, Harley announces that she loves Batman. Wherepon Joker says that he'll "'''just have to rip Batman's lungs out'''" to keep her, and immediately returns to his old self.
