People like threesomes. Most of the times, authors ignore this. But sometimes they realize that the easiest way to keep everyone happy is to group the Love Triangle together. On the rare occasion the author does this, it usually makes sense, and fits everyone's personalities. Other times...not so much.

Differs from a type 2 Tenchi Solution in that there are only three participants, although an Official Threesome can evolve into (or devolve from) that trope.

See also Three-Way Sex. Compare Tenchi Solution and Polyamory.

Canon examples only. The fandom version goes under One True Threesome, and subtext goes under Three Yay.
