** In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', Dist the Reaper is in the aftermath stage of this trope. As a child, he was clingy and obsessive over Jade, always wanting to remain at his side - when Jade finally rejected him once and for all, he became the raging, narcissistic person we see in the game, now obsessed with taking revenge on Jade instead.

Taking this up a notch, he's ''also'' obsessed with [[DeathByOriginStory Nebilim]] and his whole goal is to [[spoiler: bring her back from the dead]] and he resolutely believes anything he does is fine in pursuit of that goal.

* In ''JustForFun/PokemonVietnameseCrystal'', a very badly translated version of ''Pokemon Crystal Version'', your rival seems to be a Yandere. Each of the player's encounters with him involves him berating the player, calling them things like "TRASHY" and "WEAK WORM", all while promising to beat them down. However, he also has a tendency to follow the player around and abruptly declare his love for them during his rants. It MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'' has [[AbhorrentAdmirer Kijo]] [[LiteralManeater Momiji]] who is so obsessed with Seimei she doesn't hesitate to hurl insults at [[AllLoveIsUnrequited Shuten-dōji]] and threaten to [[WouldHurtAChild devour Kagura]] for knowing Seimei personally, [[spoiler: even though the Seimei she developed a romance for in the past and the one she's fawning over in the present aren't even the same person.]] Adding to that Shuten-dōji himself whose animosity toward Seimei is because of Momiji, and Seimei has on hand a PsychoticLoveTriangle.
** Shuten-dōji's masochistic friend Ibaraki-dōji is in danger of becoming one. He loathes Momiji for causing Shuten-dōji's misery and, in chapter 22, threatens to beat up Seimei for agreeing to a rematch with Shuten-dōji despite having always been nice to Seimei before and that it is ''Shuten-dōji'' who requested the rematch.

** Say hello to [[AliceAllusion Alice]]. [[CameBackWrong Actually]], [[DarkMagicalGirl she's]] not the real [[CreepyChild Alice]]. Her adoptive parents, the [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Count in Red and the Baron in Black]], are actually [[ArsGoetia Belial and Nebiros]]. Funny thing is, she's still mentally a young girl who wants to do normal things like go to school and get lots of friends. The problem is her "[[DamagedSoul revival]]" gave her magic. [[CastingAShadow Lots and lots of dark magic]]. Along with eroding her sense of why it's not a particularly good idea to torture, kill and eat your friends for fun.

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', a Hitman-style game [[https://yanderedev.wordpress.com/ currently under development]], is a thorough exploration of this trope:
** The plot puts the player in the role of Ayano "Yandere-chan" Aishi, an EmotionlessGirl whose goal is to win her Senpai's heart by eliminating all competition - through peaceful means, manipulation or direct violence.

* [[spoiler:Penelope Mouse]] becomes this in ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime''. [[spoiler:She's obsessed with money, and comes to believe that her boyfriend Bentley Turtle is not at his full potential because of his TrueCompanions Sly Cooper and Murray Hippo, and plots to murder them both to have Bentley (and his skills) to herself. She betrays the Cooper Gang to Le Paradox, tries to have Sly's ancestors erased from history, and when Bentley find out, he goes into a HeroicBSOD. But when he catches her trying to crush Sly's skull, he has enough, berates her for her idiocy and insanity, [[DisposableFiance and dumps her]]. [[IfICantHaveYou Penelope then tries to kill Bentley as well]].]]

* A possible interpretation for [[spoiler: Arvis of Velthomer, then Emperor Arvis of Grandbell]] from the ''VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral'' games. Granted, he ''was'' already pretty fucked up from childhood [[spoiler: due to being abandoned by his mother Cigyun when he was seven years old]], but the scene towards the end of the first part in which [[spoiler: he shows off his new wife Deirdre to ''her original husband'' Sigurd before pinning the crime of high treason on him ''and'' burning him to death with his Falaflame magical tome]] is pretty easy to interpretate as him being {{Yandere}} for her.

* ValkyrieProfile: Lezard Valeth is a truly impressive example, not just for a rare male Yandere, but for Yanderes in general. In the first game alone, [[MadScientist Lezard kills and experiments on countless elves]] to bind the Valkyrie, Lenneth, to a physical vessel, so that he can have her to himself. He also manipulates, blackmails, and/or kills anyone who might threaten his plans, or [[FateWorseThanDeath does even worse]].\\
Then Lezard [[UpToEleven kicks it up a notch]] in the sequel, where he goes back in time, abducts Lennethís sister and uses her power to defeat Odin, absorbs his power, and creates a twisted new reality. Lezard essentially rewrites reality, just to lure Lenneth to him so that he can combine their souls, becoming a single being more powerful than even Odin. But the real kicker? Lezardís infatuation is implied to have begun with a simple LoveAtFirstSight.

* ValkyrieProfile: Lezard is a truly impressive example, not just for a rare male Yandere, but for Yanderes in general. This guy is so madly obsessed with the main character, Lenneth, his entire villainous scheme involves [[spoiler:rewriting reality so that he can claim her in the new existence]]. What's more impressive? He succeeds! At least until the sequel. Even more impressive is that unlike most male Yanderes, Lezard is just so magnificently evil that fans adore him for his villainy.
