- In Flash Gordon, Dale's attempt to vamp the king of the hawkmen into sparing Flash backfires when his jealous favorite pushes her from the tower.
- In WHO dunnit, Trixie sees Victoria as a threat to her (one-sided) relationship with Tony.
- La Tigresa as reigning WWC Women's champion, was jealous when Amarillis was brought into the company, correctly believing she would soon be challenging for her title. She was also envious of the fact people gushed more about Amarillis being pretty than they did about Tigresa, which lead to Tigresa attacking Amarillis in an attempt to ruin her good looks, which lead to Amarillis challenging for the title.
- Pablo Marquez coveted La Tigresa, who was the girlfriend of Lightning, so he tried to break up their relationship even though that would likely have La Artilleria Pesada coming down on his head.
- While Los Guerreros were a very successful and popular tag team, it was clear the fans vastly preferred Eddie Guerrero to Chavo Guerrero Jr, which caused the latter to turn on the former out of envy and resentment.
- Envy was Matt Hardy's reason for turning on his more popular brother Jeff almost every time.
- In Ring of Honor, envy was what drove Christopher Daniels to feud with Low Ki, ROH's first Champion, and Steve Corino, boyfriend of his crush, Simply Luscious. Elsewhere, this is what sets Daniels against his more successful tag team partner AJ Styles.
- Paul London was jealous towards his friendship with AJ Styles, which he was afraid The Amazing Red and Alexis Laree were going to take away from him.
- Jillian Hall used to have a friendly rivalry with 2005 Diva Search winner Ashley Massaro, until Ashley posed for Playboy and got a lot of attention, including a spot in a Timbaland music video. As an aspiring singer, Jillian was also envious of Lillian Garcia getting to sing the national anthem and having a more notable music career (or so WWE would have you believe. Jillian's album actually made more money than Lillian's) (ironically, jealousy caused Brandi Wine to try and kill her career back when Jillian was a rookie)
- Jimmy Jacobs was an especially obvious case, yet "The Lovely" Lacey either did not notice or did not care how much she provoked it out of him by all but throwing herself at Colt Cabana, catering to all his needs while treating Jacobs like crap.
- Craig Mitchell became envious of Juliette The Huntress after she got on WWE Tough Enough instead of him. Even after Ivelisse had to give up the show due to a knee injury, he still hadn't gotten over it, trying to injure her knee again when she came back to Chicago Style Wrestling.
- Tamina Snuka and Aksana wanted the jobs of The Funkadactyls, valets to Brodus Clay. Clay himself got jealous when the Funkdactyls started valeting for Xavier Woods at R-Truth's request.
- In Old Harry's Game, this really seems to be Satan's preeminent sin. At least Once per Episode, to the point of Catchphrase, the Professor alleges that Satan hates and corrupts various aspects of human life because, "You're just jealous." This accusation is born out by the fact that Satan is clearly very self-loathing. Also interesting is that while Satan's Fall was mostly God just being a dick, it's indicated that he wanted to be top Angel and was jealous of any others being put above him. Finally, we're told (since it's a radio show) that Satan has green eyes.
- The page pic and caption about the Green Eyed Monster come from William Shakespeare's Othello, also the Trope Namer. The tragedy of the play comes about because of misplaced jealousy on the part of the title character because of a horrible lie about his wife Desdemona told by Manipulative Bastard Iago, who many say was himself motivated by envy toward Cassio, who Othello promoted instead of him.
- The Merchant of Venice, written before Othello, has Portia reference "green-eyed jealousy".
- Shakespeare was fond of this one. Envy is the primary motivation driving many of his characters, including Claudio in Much Ado About Nothing and Leontes in The Winter's Tale.
- In A Midsummer Night's Dream, Titania accuses Oberon of this, and Helena's got it, in spades.
- The hashihime, sometimes translated as "bridge princess", is a figure from Noh theater who either committed suicide or openly cursed her cheating husband, and was turned into a bridge-haunting spirit.
- Miou in A Profile is extremely jealous of Masayuki's stepsister Rizu after Masayuki broke up with her to repair his relationship with said sister. How she reacts varies by route, but the story goes out of its way to show that she does have a point due to the circumstances involved.
- School Days: Sekai and Kotonoha. VERY jealous of each other because they both like Makoto. The most infamous endings (as well as the one for the anime adaptation) have things ending very, very badly as a result.
- Umineko no Naku Koro ni features Leviathan, the second of the Stakes of Purgatory. She's a whiny crybaby who envied her sisters for seven days. However, not even her envy is a match for Kyrie who envied Asumu for eighteen years. Leviathan develops a bit of a crush on her after that.
- In one of the bad endings for Bionic Heart, the main character's new android love interest murders his ex-girlfriend when she becomes jealous of all of the time that the protagonist spends with his ex.
- In one Mario animated video online called "The Color of Envy", Luigi, jealous of Princess Toadstool favoring Mario, frees Wario from the dungeon, kills all the guards who oppose him, and throws Mario in the dungeon.
- Dr. Horrible's envy of Captain Hammer fuels everything he does. It starts out with perpetual envy and disgust of Hammer's success and the (arguably undeserved) worship the city gives him, but what really drives him over the edge is envy/jealousy over Hammer dating the girl he's had his eye on, and Hammer gloating about it to rub it in his face, to boot. It doesn't end well. At all.
- Part of why The Nostalgia Critic's a Bad Boss. Reviewing is the only thing he has so he's freaked out by people going into his territory and doing it better than him (or so he thinks).
- The Nostalgia Chick and Lupa are friendly at first (or as friendly as the Chick can be), but when Chick discovers Lupa has Todd's affections but doesn't want them, she's so jealous that she tries to kill the redhead.
