----

* Jenna Maroney has one on ''Series/ThirtyRock''. Or rather, ''had'' one. She's terribly upset to find out that her stalker has moved on, treating it as if her actual boyfriend had left her. Kenneth cheers her up by stalking her instead.
* In ''Series/TheAdventuresOfBriscoCountyJr'', the shy, bookish lawyer Socrates becomes the object of a crazy woman's affection, but he can't get police protection because they won't believe him.
* In the recent adaptation of Sarah Waters' ''Literature/{{Affinity}}'', a brand new character called Theophilius was drafted in as the heroine's wannabe suitor. Despite Margaret being a lesbian and mourning the death of her father, Theophilius wouldn't give up and insisted on pursuing her. He's finally written out when [[spoiler: he tries to rape her, ranting about his belief Margaret's hung up on her father and saying he'll 'erase his mark' from her. What a freak.]]
* Penelope Taynt of ''Series/TheAmandaShow'' [[LesYay for the titular Amanda]]. Also, both Penelope and Amanda are played by AmandaBynes.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Wesley to Fred.
* ''Series/BadGirls'': Di Barker, one of the prison guards, is a serial stalker, obsessing on numerous unfortunate men who pass through Larkhall. She steals their possessions, builds shrines and does whatever she can to break up their relationships. [[spoiler: She receives her comeuppance when she's wrongly convicted for her husband's murder]].
* Leoben is Starbuck's Cylon StalkerWithACrush on ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'', keeping her trapped in an apartment with him for months and introducing a fake daughter. Starbuck keeps killing him, but he keeps coming back. She was understandably frakked in the head after being rescued.
* Tully is arguably this for George in ''Series/BeingHuman''. He figures out George's general location by using newspaper articles, finds him in the woods post-transformation, and tracks him down to his home, where George finds him comfortably sitting in the living room. All because Tully is lonely and wants a friend ([[spoiler:who he also bit himself]]).
* ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'': Agent Van Alden towards Margaret Schroeder. He stole and sniffed her hair ribbon, specially ordered her immigration file for his own perusing, questioned her neighbor about her, and caressed, and later whipped himself to, a picture of her. Van Alden's boss even calls him out on his obsession with the Schroeders.
* Booth on ''Series/{{Bones}}'' gets saddled with a repeat offender of this. At the end of the episode, she accidentally shoots him while trying to kill Brennan.
** Season one also has a stalker who fixates on Bones after his previous obsession dies.
** They track him down later, still obsessed with Bones. They clear him of murder and he disappears after Bones punches in the face.
** Hodgins is this to Angela in the early episodes.
* Spike from ''Series/{{Buffy|TheVampireSlayer}}''. He became accustomed to following Buffy down the pavement or hanging around outside her house at night. He watched Buffy through her window, made a shrine to her, [[PervertedSniffing smelled one of her sweaters]], and had a sex robot designed to look and act like her. [[spoiler:Of course his little crush got a little less one sided in Season 6 and by Season 7 he became a little less evil.]]
** Season 2's Angelus combines this with LoveMakesYouEvil. Willow even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it: "You're still the only thing he thinks about."
** Arguable in that Angel himself was one even before Angelus came about in Season 2. In Season 2's "Lie To Me", Angel shows up at The Bronze and even claims that he was hoping Buffy would show despite the fact that Buffy often attends with Xander and Willow. Also in Season 2's "What's My Line Part 1", Buffy climbs through her window back into her bedroom. Somewhat creepily, Angel's already standing in there holding her stuffed pig, Mr. Gordo. It's clear he's been waiting for her to arrive. In that same scene, Angel admits to knowing about Sunnydale High School having its Career Week and explains his knowing about it as, "I lurk."
*** Of course, it was essentially his ''[[BodyguardCrush job]]'' to stalk her, handed straight to him by the Powers That Be in order to keep her safe, even though she was unaware of it for a while. That being said, however, it's a little disconcerting that when Angel falls in love with Buffy, he's hiding in a run-down car and she's wearing pigtails and sucking on a lollipop.
** Angelus was also this towards Drusilla, stalking her before eventually turning her into a vampire after making her insane.
* ''Series/{{Community}}'' Dean Pelton's interest in Jeff is generally considered harmless. He went way over the line at one point (reading Jeff's email and basically blackmailing him into going on a date with him) but after Jeff pummeled him for it, the inappropriate touching and closeness continues. This may be because Jeff is practically twice the Dean's size and quite capable of beating him up, making his approaches seem less threatening.
* David Platt from ''Series/CoronationStreet'' just doesn't get the fact that Tina does not want to be his girlfriend anymore.
* Jason Stickler from ''Series/CoryInTheHouse'', who (mis)uses high-tech gadgets provided by his CIA Director father to spy on Meena.
* ''Series/CriminalMinds'':
** in "Somebody's Watching", the profilers figure a male LoonyFan is the one killing people connected to a certain actress, but the unsub turns out to be the actress's PsychoLesbian friend.
** "Broken Mirror" had a rogue FBI agent who was obsessed with a pair of twin sisters, one of whom he abducted, while "The Crossing" had a fairly generic stalker going after a woman he met while fixing her computer (they accidentally touched hands and she smiled at him, it was good enough for him). The rapist in "Aftermath" also learned absolutely everything he possibly could about his victims before going after them.
* Johnny Smith of ''Series/TheDeadZone'' gets one of these, of the LoonyFan variety, in the episode "Misbegotten". She's played for laughs in TheTeaser, breaking into his house so she can cook for him, while Johnny blinks at her in bemusement. She gets a good bit creepier after she helps kidnap him, duct-tapes him to a chair, and [[AttemptedRape nearly rapes him]].
* Episode 6 of Kieślowski's ''Dekalog'', "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery". A 19-year-old postal worker is the Stalker with a Crush of a woman in his apartment building. This is shown as odd and unhealthy, but nonetheless a manifestation of a pure impulse to love. [[spoiler: He explains that he no longer watches her when she has sex, for instance...]]
* ''Series/{{Dexter}}'': [[spoiler:Lila]] eventually becomes a version of one of these, going so far as to [[spoiler:murder Doakes to protect Dexter's secret]] because she believes them to be soulmates, and eventually attempts to [[spoiler:murder Dexter himself, as well as Cody and Astor.]]
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Arguably the Master and his obsession with the Doctor. Eventually the butt of jokes on the show itself: "Are you asking me out on a date?" and the Tenth Doctor's quip about the Master's [[TheBeard lavender marriage]].
** The Master's first on-screen female incarnation has abandoned all pretense, outright calling the Doctor her boyfriend, sexually assaulting him when they first meet, and "jokingly" threatening to shoot him out of jealousy.
** Sharaz Jek in "The Caves of Androzani" quite clearly has the creepy kind of hots for Peri, doing things like chloroforming her, stroking her face while she's unconscious, and carrying her around in his arms (again, unconscious) while whispering "so beautiful...so beautiful...". The fact that he also dresses entirely in black leather really doesn't help.
* In ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'', Alpha is one of these towards Echo. Disturbingly, he's even shown to sit naked in a room of a house in which he [[AxCrazy killed two people]], watching a video of Echo. And later on it is revealed that [[spoiler: Nolan is one for Sierra's original personality, Priya.]]
* Thomas Barrow of ''Series/DowntonAbbey'' towards Jimmy Kent, a new member of the house staff, cultimating in a DudeShesLikeInAComa situation.
* Steve Urkel on ''Series/FamilyMatters'' found himself on both sides of this: for years he'd been Laura's stalker with a crush, then eventually found his own in Myra Monkhouse. Unfortunately for poor Myra, Steve was a more successful stalker than she was.
* Scorpius's obsession with Crichton on ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' has shades of this, and was deliberately played this way by Wayne Pygram. Crichton himself even lampshades it. Played with in that it's not so much Crichton ''himself'' Scorpius is obsessed with, but the wormhole knowledge he possesses.
** Stark has a number of creepy interactions with Aeryn early in season three [[spoiler: due to Zhaan sacrificing her life to restore Aeryn's]]. WordOfGod is that the intent was this trope.
* Happens between a boss and an employee in ''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'' where the employee became madly infatuated with his boss who did not return his affections. He repeatedly sent her emails and left gifts at her house. When she gently tried to tell him she wasn't interested and fired him as a result, he returned to the office with a gun [[spoiler: so he could propose to her, believing he had a better chance with her, CompletelyMissingThePoint of said firing.]]
* Mel from ''Series/FlightOfTheConchords'' is a LoonyFan who has spied on the titular band and always manages to creep them out. At one point, she was implied to be into the idea of Jemaine being {{prison rape}}d.
* Doctor Pilfrey spends most of the third episode of ''Series/{{Fortysomething}}'' chasing after Estelle, acting on the e-mails that Edwin sent to him on her account, and turning his office into a love den complete with candles for when she showed up to see Paul. [[Creator/HughLaurie Similar to]] [[Series/{{House}} the above]], [[spoiler: he turned out to be suffering from hypermania]].
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': Rachel towards Will in episode 10. Also Suzy Pepper before her. [[spoiler: Suzy's crush faded after she hospitalized herself, and she told Rachel to stop before she made the same mistakes.]]
** Jacob Ben Israel. A stalker with a knickers fetish for Rachel.
** 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.
*** Finn ''tried'' to punch Jesse but he has cat-like reflexes and dodged.
** Also, Kurt's behavior towards Finn in the first season is a bit stalkerish. Kurt himself clearly doesn't see it though, as he thinks every attempt to call him out on it is due to homophobia.
-->'''Finn:''' The way you were all over me last year... if I did that to a girl, she'd take out a restraining order.
-->'''Kurt:''' You have issues with me being gay, I get it.
-->'''Finn:''' No, actually I don't. I have issues with the fact that you don't understand that no means no.
** [[DepravedHomosexual Dave]] [[ArmouredClosetGay Karofsky]], anyone? He's way worse than any of the others. He's Kurt's homophobic bully and the crush comes out when Karofsky [[ForcefulKiss forcibly kisses]] a very terrified Kurt. Add to that the physical assault, constant insults and [[UpToEleven eventual death threat]]... it doesn't exactly go well.
* ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'': {{Disney|Channel}} comes back to this trope time and time again. On ''[[SecondaryCharacterTitle Good Luck Charlie]]'', another sitcom, there is [[GenderBlenderName Teddy]], the main character. Her brother, has a friend named [[BlackAndNerdy Emmett]], who has a crush that's basically been built up by him into a full blown relationship with Teddy as his girlfriend. As usual per the KidCom genre, it's played for laughs.
* ''Series/GossipGirl'': Chuck Bass's behavior towards Blair comes close to this at times.
** As the last season reveals, the worst offender is, by far, [[spoiler:Dan Humphrey, towards Serena, since he has been following her entire life for years, thanks to being the eponymous Gossip Girl.]]
* Sue White on ''Series/GreenWing'' will do just about anything to get with Dr. Mac... witchcraft, attempted murder, slander...
* ''Series/GroundedForLife'': Brad is this to Lily. She is clearly freaked out yet brushes it off due to how he's actually a NiceGuy but shows he likes her in ways that fall under this trope (spying on her, acting like a PersonalSpaceInvader). [[CharacterDevelopment He gets better though.]]
* ''Series/HannahMontana'': Lilly Truscott was known to have a mad, obsessive crush with [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Orlando]] [[LordOfTheRings Bloom]], often chasing after him stalkishly in public events when dressed as [[ClarkKenting Lola Luftnagle]]. A regular joke involved her friends "seeing the [[IncrediblyLamePun Lilly bloom]]". This seems to have subsided as she and Oliver became an OfficialCouple.
* Will Graham acquires at least ''two'' of these in ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'', both of whom are serial killers. Although partially a result of his profession, Will seems to [[WeirdnessMagnet be attractive to killers]] who love his "pure empathy" and want him to understand them.
** The first one, [[ImAHumanitarian Hannibal]] [[ManipulativeBastard Lecter]], is obsessed with Will, talking about him endlessly with Jack, Chilton, and Bedelia. He even longs to ''be'' Will, bragging to Bedelia that he "gets to be" Will Graham in his new role as an FBI profiler. When gruesome crimes mirroring Will's alleged ones are committed in "Hassun", Hannibal makes thinly-veiled remarks attributing the killer's "love" for Will to himself, and questioning Will's unwillingness to accept him.
** The second one, [[TheSociopath Matthew]] [[AmbiguouslyGay Brown]], kills his friend in an attempt to prove Will innocent, hacks and rereads Will's files, seems to go out of his way to be the one who accompanies Will, and all this before he even talks to him. And then, when Hannibal assumes that he's only obsessed with Will because of his alleged crimes and attempts to tell him that Will's not a serial killer, Matthew states that he doesn't care.
** In the series finale, it's revealed that Hannibal is [[spoiler: in love with Will and everything he's done has been to bring him and Will together. It works.]]
* ''Series/HappyDays'': Joanie had an early crush on Potsie, and later in the series Joanie was on the receiving end of an obsession from Fonzie's cousin Chachi. It was quite unwanted until even later when they became an item and eventually married in the series finale.
* A recurring plot on ''Series/HartToHart'' was for one member of the title couple to attract a StalkerWithACrush who would then try to bump off their spouse.
* In ''Series/{{Helix}}'', After asking a series of increasingly personal questions in their various interactions, Dr. [[spoiler: Hiroshi Hatake]] wistfully peruses an album of pictures of Dr. [[spoiler: Julia Walker]], both posed and taken from distances suggesting covert surveillance.
* In ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', Sylar's developed this relationship with Claire.
** Claire is on the receiving end ''again'' in Volume Five, this time from Gretchen. However, Gretchen comes clean a lot sooner, and Claire seems to have forgiven her.
* The Chief of Police in ''Series/HillStreetBlues'' had a really obvious crush on the police officer played by Mimi Kuzyk. He often made serious compliments to her, that were (in her opinion) too personal, such that it bothered her enough that she filed a Sexual Harassment complaint. Later, when she decided to leave the police force, the lack of the boss/subordinate power structure made her lose her fear of him, enough that they ended up {{Shipping}} and she moved in with him.
* ''Series/{{Homeland}}'' presents the StalkerWithACrush as the hero: Carrie plants hidden cameras and microphones in Brody's house, follows him, arranges to run into him when he goes to a support group for veterans, and otherwise stalks him. At some point in all this, she falls in love with him. Of course, she is a spy, so doing all these things does come with the territory, after all.
* ''Series/{{House}}'':
** After being hit on by an 82-year-old woman [[spoiler: albeit with syphilis]] in Season 1, "Informed Consent" and "Lines in the Sand" showed what a staggering age range of women are sexually attracted to House. 17-year-old Ali shows up at the clinic just to expose herself to him, calls him 15 times a day, wears low-cut jeans in front of him to show her thong (justified by [[OnceAnEpisode the resulting]] EurekaMoment), straddles his motorcycle while waiting for him in the garage, ignores most of Cuddy's threats to call the police, and locks herself in House's office. Subverted in the end by [[spoiler: House telling that her she has a brain spore that causes loss of inhibition. Although it is rather heavily implied that he exaggerates the effects of said spore in order to make her give up her obsession.]]
** House himself, sort of. The crush part is up for debate. House hires a private investigator to spy on Wilson when Wilson cuts ties with House, quits his job, and moves away. The PI accuses House of wanting to see if Wilson is pining, and he's right. House is clearly upset to discover that, despite having the PI set up bugs and everything in Wilson's car and home, Wilson hasn't mentioned House at all.
** There's Tritter [[FoeYay towards House]] as well. Ever since their first meeting, where House anally inserted a thermometer into Tritter and just walked away and left him there ([[KickTheDog because Tritter tripped his cane out from under him, making him slam into the door]]), Tritter becomes [[FoeYay completely obsessed with House]]. He pretty much spends all his time [[StalkerWithACrush stalking House]], questioning all of House's friends trying to find things on him, and searching his house. He also actively sought out arresting House, and did a body search on him, which consisted of him groping House and lifting up his shirt (which exposed House's abdomen).
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'':
** Lily's high school boyfriend Scooter cannot seem to grasp that Lily is happily married to her college boyfriend. He's mostly just a harmless, sad little puppy of a recurring character, but he seriously has revolved his entire life just around seeing Lily, and for some reason thinks he still has a chance.
** In a non romantic variant, [[SitcomArchNemesis Patrice]] is kind of freakishly obsessed with Robin. Robin isn't precisely subtle about her abhorrence of her coworker, but Patrice is sort of obliviously half in love with her anyway.
** "PS: I Love You" explores this and StalkingIsLove, and basically says the difference between being a stalker and being romantic is whether the stalkee is interested in the stalker.
* [[ButtMonkey Freddie]] in ''Series/ICarly''. He and Carly are really good friends, and the stalker side of things is pretty much limited to him waiting for her to come home after school by looking through his peephole (they live in opposite apartments), but it weirds some people out. Pretty much limited to PlayedForLaughs.
** Freddie's stalker-ish behavior drops off pretty quick. If you watched the rest of the series, then watched the pilot, you wouldn't recognize Freddie as the same character. Of course, post-pilot, Freddie is hanging out with his crush most of the time with her consent, so it would be a little difficult to stalk her at that point.
** The Mandy character seems to be a better fit for this trope.
** Nevel. Oh boy Nevel. He has a wall of monitors solely for the purpose of showing slow motion close ups of Carly. Creepy.
* Charlie towards the Waitress on ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia''. Charlie uses pennies he's found to pay for people to spy on her. He also proposed to her once, she said no. The Waitress has a restraining order against him. But all he has to do is bring up Dennis and she's too busy thinking about Dennis to remember she has any restraining order to speak of.
* ''Series/{{JAG}}'': DirtyCop Frank Coster in "The Stalker", not only stalked Mac, but killed her former boyfriend Dalton Lowne and kidnapped her.
* In a ''Series/LawAndOrder'' episode, one of these kills a woman's husband in what nearly everyone thinks is an accident, and then marries her. They even have a child together. [[spoiler: But the late husband's mother wasn't fooled.]]
** 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!
* Ben in ''Series/{{Lost}}'' is like this with Juliet. He keeps her on The Island against her will for 3 years, and gets her lover killed ... and then shows her the body out of pure spite.
* Craig to Lois in ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle''. He even ''bought a house'' that was situated where he could peer into Lois's backyard from his window through binoculars.
* Simon gets one of his very own in the second series of ''Series/{{Misfits}}''.
* ''Series/{{Monk}}'': In "Mr. Monk and the TV Star," Monk ends up nailing actor Brad Terry for murdering his ex-wife with the help of an obsessed fan named [[SarahSilverman Marci Maven]], and accidentally transfers the stalker crush to himself. In "Mr. Monk and His Biggest Fan," we see Marci's new obsession with Monk has grown to extremes: she has a partially accurate diorama that is supposed to depict the carjacking scene of "Mr. Monk and the Three Pies", she has plastered the walls of her house with.
* [[RichBitch C.C. Babcock]] from ''Series/TheNanny'' has borderline {{Yandere}} tendencies towards Maxwell Sheffield. Throughout the series, she's unable to grasp that Maxwell's not romantically interested in her. She gets better towards the end as she finds herself falling for [[spoiler:Niles]].
* Abby from ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' once had to deal with a stalker ex-boyfriend. His walls are covered with pictures of her (all taken from outside restraining order's limits), and the team assumes he's the one hacking into all her records. Turns out he was, ''but,'' [[spoiler: he could only do it because a professional killer/hacker had already done it.]]
* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'': Missy towards Ned.
* ''Series/NurseJackie'': After breaking up with Jackie, Eddie is taking a definite turn in this direction -- befriending her husband and [[spoiler:overdosing on tranquilizers to get himself admitted to her emergency room]].
* ''Series/OneDayAtATime'': The 1980 episode "Endless Elliot," which centered on an awkward teen's attempt to court the series' chick daughter, Barbara. When Barbara tries to let him down easy, Elliot goes all-out to try to woo Barbara, and the result has her beyond annoyed. The rest of the gang comes up with a ZanyScheme to get him to go away.
** 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.
* ''OneTreeHill'': There are two major examples:
** Season 4 has Psycho!Derek, a guy who stalks Peyton and gets closer to her by pretending to be her half-brother. The situation comes to a head in ''You Call It Madness, But I Call It Love'', where he abducts her on the night of prom and keeps her BoundAndGagged inside her own house. It gets out of control when Brooke shows up- he promptly strangles her to subdue her, ties her up too, and then decides that since Peyton and Brooke had gotten into a severe fight, the best way to win Peyton's affections would be to [[DisproportionateRetribution murder]] Brooke in front of her. The girls barely escape with their lives.
** Another stalker shows up in Season 7/8: Katie Ryan, IdenticalStranger to Clay's dead wife Sarah. When she can't convince Clay to leave his current girlfriend Quinn to date Katie, she proceeds to invoke MurderTheHypotenuse and IfICantHaveYou by [[spoiler: shooting both Quinn and Clay]]. They [[spoiler: barely survive]], and Katie isn't dealt with until the S8 midseason finale, where she comes back to [[spoiler: try to murder Quinn again, and fails]].
* In the ''Series/OnlyFoolsAndHorses'' 1993 Christmas special "Fatal Extraction", during a brief split from Raquel, Del sets up a date with Beverly, the receptionist of his local dentist, but calls it off after Rodney manages to talk him out of it. In the following days, Del sees Beverly wherever he goes, and starts to believe that she's stalking him. [[spoiler:In a subversion, it turns out that their meetings were coincidental, and Beverly actually believes that ''Del'' is stalking ''her''. She thought the date was a bad idea to begin with and didn't mind it being called off, but Del's threatening behaviour when he confronts her actually motivates Beverly into taking revenge by selling Raquel an answering machine which had Del's message about cancelling the date on it]].
* [[spoiler:Morello]] in ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack''. She went on one date with someone, and then started to stalk him, ultimately going to jail planting [[MadBomber a homemade explosive device]] under his actual fiancee's car.
* ''Series/{{Oz}}'':
** Ryan O'Reily was this way with Dr. Nathan. After she helped him through cancer, he immediately divorces his wife. Later, he forced a kiss on her, paid a fellow inmate to steal her stethoscope, and when she started ignoring him, had his brother Cyril [[MurderTheHypotenuse kill her husband]]. After she was raped, he very quickly murdered the man that did it. It was even said outright that his love for her was more of a stalker obsession. The weirdest part about it: [[LoveMartyr Dr. Nathan actually falls for him in the end]].
** Chris Keller as well. Such was his obsession with wanting to remain in Beecher's life even though Beecher repeatedly told him that he didn't want anything to do with him anymore.
* [[spoiler: Nathan/Lyndon]] from ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'' develops an obsession for [[LipstickLesbian Maya]], following her all the way back to Rosewood. When she notices this, she hides in the Khan cabin. [[spoiler: It didn't help her, as she was later found, [[IfICantHaveYou and killed]], by him.]]
** And with her gone, he eventually develops a similar obsession for [[ReplacementLoveInterest her girlfriend Emily]]...
* In one episode of the short-lived ''Series/{{Probe}}'', Austin is pursued by a stalker who murders one woman and tries to murder another she sees as an obstacle to her obsession with Austin. The twist? The stalker is a mentally enhanced orangutan.
* Hoyt of ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles'' develops a peculiar fixation on Jane and preys on her. He also wants to kill her because he likes that he thinks she's equal to him in some ways.
* Guy's obsession with Marian in the BBC's ''Series/RobinHood'', culminating in[[spoiler: [[IfICantHaveYou "If I Can't Have You, No One Will!"]] ]].
* ''Series/{{Scandal}}'': [[spoiler: Becky, Huck's girlfriend,]] certainly comes off as this with a secret room loaded with photos of him. Sure, she's an assassin, but that's still creepy.
* ''Series/TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager'': Ben's obsession with Amy borders on this at times.
** Also Adrian has had behaviors bordering on this to Ricky in Seasons 2 and 4. Tom to Adrian. Jack has shades of this in his behavior to Grace. Grant transferred schools to get closer to Ashley in Season 3. Ashley to Ricky in Season 3. Dylan has behaviors like this to Ben in Season 4.
* On ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', Elaine was very prone to getting these.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uov9d-nqyFY&feature=related Joe Davola]] had a StalkerShrine made of pictures he had taken of her without her noticing. Naturally this creeps Elaine out. He later becomes suspicious and [[CrazyJealousGuy thinks she cheated on him]]. This causes him to run around searching for her and Jerry dressed as a clown.
* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'': Moriarty seems to be this where Sherlock is concerned from the very first episode onwards, as it turns out that [[spoiler:the cabbie in "A Study In Pink" and The Black Lotus in "The Blind Banker"]] were sent to 'test' Sherlock's skills and to see just how good he is at his job as a consulting detective and Moriarty's arch-nemesis; his first words to Sherlock (albeit through another's mouth) are "Hello... Sexy".
* Sketch (towards Maxxie) from the second season of ''Series/{{Skins}}''.
** Emily is kind of this towards Naomi in the third season, but she's far too nice and likable (her pursuit of Naomi is more [[TheWoobie lovestruck puppy]] than PsychoLesbian) for it to be creepy. Naomi declares her to be "very annoying" when she manages to break into Naomi's bedroom (not hard, since Naomi's mum has turned their house into a hippy commune), rather than pulling the all-out freakout that might be associated with this trope. But even so.
* In the earliest days of ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', every other MonsterOfTheWeek had a crush on Lana. For that matter, Clark does the same thing to Lana with his telescope when she still lives next door to him.
-->'''Lana:''' ''(looking through the telescope)'' Did you know you can see my house from here?\\
'''Clark:''' ''(acting innocent)'' No... Really? ''(moves the telescope to point somewhere else)''
** There's Also Alicia Baker, a girl with teleporting powers who did this to Clark. She eventually got better and one season later the two dated for real until Alicia was killed by a man who was framing her for crimes that he committed. Clark was not happy about that.
* ATF Agent Josh Kohn for Dr. Tara Knowles in ''Series/SonsOfAnarchy''. [[spoiler:It does not end well for him]].
* The show ''Stalker'' of course contains these, though it also has plenty of [[StalkerWithoutACrush the other kind]] as well.
* Fifth from ''Series/StargateSG1'' cranked up the creepiness factor by declaring his love for Carter. This love led him to inflict Replicarter on the galaxy.
** Samantha Carter seems to attract these types. Orlin and [=McKay=] both nurtured (relatively creepy) obsessions with her. Several others, much creepiers, have died.
* RealityWarper Charlie Evans is one to Janice Rand in the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "[[Recap/StarTrekS1E2CharlieX Charlie X]]".
* ''Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial''. Krelman, on Ackmina the cantina-owner.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** [[spoiler:Gordon Walker]] becomes this over the course of his first appearance for Dean Winchester, as he repeatedly tries to distance Dean from Sam. In each subsequent appearance on the show, his obsession with Dean becomes more pronounced as he [[spoiler:kidnaps Dean]] repeatedly and when he's [[spoiler:turned into a vampire]]his first instinct is to find Dean and Sam so that he can [[spoiler:kill Sam and turn Dean so that they can hunt together. Forever.]]
** And let's not forget Sam's own StalkerWithACrush Becky Rosen, who initially is not too bad since it's PlayedForLaughs, but in Season 7 [[spoiler: she actually kidnaps him and drugs him with love potion, all while fooled into a deal with a demon.]]
* ''Series/TeenWolf''. Matt, to Allison.
* ''Series/{{Timecop}}'': 1950s Hollywood actress Rita Lake from "Stalker" has ''two''. One of them is Ian Pascoe, a recurring villainous time traveler who decides to impersonate her boyfriend and murder her. The second turns out to be [[spoiler:the homicide detective who's investigating the case]], as he's the one who offed all her previous boyfriends so he could have her for himself.
* ''Series/TrueBlood'':
** Lorena just can't accept that Bill has moved on.
** Sam Merlotte, in Season One. Thankfully, he got better.
* Rose on ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'' is a bit odd in that she's both quite [[LampshadeHanging self-aware]] of what she's doing, and is actually on friendly terms with Charlie and his family.
