'''Basic Trope''': (InUniverse) A character's friends resent a new love interest for "breaking up the band".

* '''Exaggerated''': Alice and Bob have to be physically restrained from attacking Yoko on sight.
* '''Downplayed''': Alice and Bob are initially suspicious and catty towards Zack's new girlfriend.
* '''Justified''': Alice and Bob are in a band with Zack, "The PowerTrio", and they just scored a record deal, but since he hooked up with a groupie he's stopped turning up to practice sessions, jeopardizing their Big Chance.
* '''Inverted''':
** Zack's new girlfriend hates his friends, thinking he spends too much time with them and that they're trying to turn him against her.
** Zack's new girlfriend, Yoko, manages to [[TheHeart keep the previously fractious band together]], and is appreciated by the band for being able to do so.
** Zack's new girlfriend, Yoko, is a {{Tomboy}} FieryRedhead [[AllDrummersAreAnimals animal of a dummer]] who becomes a CreatorCouple with Zack, who Bob and Alice appreciate for what she brings to TeamDad Zack, shaking up his world and filling a missing slot to the band.
* '''Subverted''': Zack warns Yoko about his friends, secretly worried that Alice and Bob will treat her [[NoodleIncident like they did poor, dead Ysabel]], but they're perfectly friendly.
* '''Double Subverted''': ...until it turns out they've been {{Gaslighting}} her, hoping to drive her crazy [[DerailingLoveInterests so Zack will go off her]].
* '''Parodied''':
** The trope is played as a DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything for ParentWithNewParamour, as TeamDad Zack tries to get poor Alice and Bob to understand that, while Yoko is never going to ''replace'' Xena, he loves her very much and he hopes they can learn to love her too...
** Yoko is perfectly sweet, lovely, and friendly. Bob and Alice react to her every effort to try and make friends as if she were Satan.

* '''Invoked''': Zack thinks his friends don't appreciate him enough, so pretends to be in a deeply involved relationship with a [[GirlfriendInCanada suspiciously never-seen new girlfriend]], hoping they'll realize they take him for granted.
* '''Exploited''': Zack is sick of being in a band with Alice and Bob, and is happy to use his new girlfriend as an excuse.
* '''Defied''': Alice stops bitching about Yoko with Bob, realising that they're being silly and jealous, and she's probably perfectly nice.
* '''Discussed''': "Oh god, you're in a band? Your bandmates are going to ''hate'' me, aren't they..."
* '''Conversed''': "Alice and Bob are acting like their dad just got remarried..."
