->''"The vampire is the slick sophisticated guy, the werewolf is the butch blue-collar guy, the girl can only pick one and so on... [...] Plus the vampires mostly have a kind of European thing going on while the werewolves are all Native Americans, so there's a kind of racial-cultural thing happening... All right, you know what? You could probably make a good movie out of that. I mean, they didn't, but... you know... I guess you ''could''."''
-->-- '''[[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/escape-to-the-movies/1107-New-Moon MovieBob]]''''s review of ''[[Film/{{Twilight}} New Moon]]''

This {{trope}} is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. When RomanceEnsues in a continuity featuring FurAgainstFang, the result tends to end up including a LoveTriangle featuring a {{vampire|Tropes}} and a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] as two of the [[TriangRelations three members]]. Generally the central figure is a human, but not always.

Basically, choose your vice -- [[ILoveTheDead necrophilia]] or [[BestialityIsDepraved bestiality]].

Usually also involves FeudingFamilies, FurAgainstFang, MalignedMixedMarriage, StarCrossedLovers, RomanticVampireBoy.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund'', Mina's the vampire, Akira is the werewolf, and the Royal Three make up the third party as a whole. There's also the odd triangle between Mina, Akira, and Yuki, who is in love with Akira and has a lot of mutual LesYay with Mina.
* In ''Manga/InuYasha'', {{Tsundere}} Kagome likes [=InuYasha=] (who is a dog hanyou, which is similar to a werewolf), and he used to love Kikyo (Kagome's past life), who becomes essentially an undead soul -- energy eater, and Koga, a wolf youkai, is in love with Kagome.
* ''Manga/PrincessResurrection'' contains a distaff counterpart where a female werewolf Liza and a female vampire Reiri are both attracted to UnluckyEverydude human male. In actuality, neither sees him as a romantic interest, more as a plaything or underage drinking buddy. Now, how they, especially Reiri, view his mistress Hime on the other hand...
* In ''Manga/MillenniumSnow'', Toya is the vampire and Satsuki is the werewolf. The girl they are competing for is Chiyuki.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In most ''Twilight'' fan fiction, the love story between Bella (human), Edward (vampire), and Jacob (werewolf) carries on.
* In some stories about ''Videogame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' there's an ongoing love triangle between [[CatGirl Felicia]] being romantically involved with both vampire lord Demetri and werewolf warrior Jon Talbain.

* ''Literature/AnitaBlake''. In addition to being a love triangle, the metaphysical bonds formed between the human necromancer, the vampire, and the werewolf makes all of them more powerful.
* ''Literature/TheSookieStackhouseMysteries'' and its {{Creator/HBO}} adaptation, ''Series/TrueBlood''. Okay, he's an {{Animorphism}} shapeshifter. But he gets mistaken for a werewolf. If you read further into ''Literature/TheSookieStackhouseMysteries'', it's actually a telepath / vampire / vampire / shapeshifter / werewolf / werepanther / weretiger LoveDodecahedron. On the other hand, Sookie breaks up with/kills most of her past lovers before moving onto the next one, so it's not quite such a tangled mess. Not to mention, with Harris' habit of killing off characters left and right, there likely soon won't be any characters left for Sookie to even have a relationship with, let alone have to worry about sparking rivalries.
* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book ''Thud'', Angua the werewolf is in a relationship with Carrot, but Sally the vampire develops a crush on him and an intense rivalry develops between the girls, which is only intensified by instinctual FurAgainstFang. However, the rivalry (and instinctual dislike) seems to be [[ImaginaryLoveTriangle mostly in Angua's mind]]. Sally admits that she's attracted to Carrot, but knows that she doesn't really have a chance; [[MySensorsIndicateYouWantToTapThat his heart beat picks up whenever Angua is around]].
* Somewhat true in [[http://www.patriciabriggs.com/ Patricia Briggs']] ''Literature/MercyThompson'' books. The titular character has to choose between two werewolves: teenage crush Samuel and next-door-neighbor Adam, but she also has a rather close relationship with vampire Stefan, whose unrequited crush seems very likely to stay unrequited. In the fifth book she [[spoiler:finally chooses Adam,]] but this remains pretty central to the plot for most of the series. However, Stefan is only really a contender in his own mind, as Mercedes has plenty of good reasons to dislike vampires.
* ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'': This is, fundamentally, the ''whole plot'' of the series.
* PlayedWith in ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments,'' when a love triangle develops with vampire Simon in the middle of werewolf Maya and human/Shadowhunter Isabelle.
* Another example of this trope is Daniel Gonzalez's ''Ravencraft novels'', there’s a love triangle between vampire hunter Donovan Fort, his vampire girlfriend Lucilla and his werewolf colleague Laura Talbot.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Played totally straight in the ''Film/{{Twilight}}'' series with Bella (human), Edward (vampire) and Jacob (werewolf).
* Amusingly subverted in ''Film/{{Underworld}}''. Vampire Kraven ''thinks'' he's in a love triangle with [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Vampire Assassin]] Selene and the series' UnfazedEveryman, Michael. And the werewolves are trying to turn Michael to their side before she gets a hold of him. He's dead wrong, though, since she thinks he's a power-hungry coward. Hell, at that point in the story, she doesn't even have a romantic interest in Michael yet... Kraven is just so narcissistic as to think she's in love with him, and it infuriates him to even consider that she could choose Michael over him.\\\
Of course, she ''does'' eventually fall in love with Michael, ''despite'' him being turned into a werewolf against his will. She even tries mightily to protect him from other vampires and herself (considering she usually kills werewolves on sight). Kraven tries to win her over again (despite having been exposed as a traitor to all vampires) and at this time she literally shoots him down, though she fails to kill him (not for lack of trying). [[spoiler:He dies in the second movie]].
* PlayedWith in ''Film/VanHelsing'': [[spoiler:the title character]] is in the process of becoming a werewolf when Dracula kidnaps his love interest and tries to seduce her. Said Love Interest is also the main character of ''Underworld'' described above.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/YoungDracula'' is an example of this, because Vlad's mother ran off with a werewolf. In this case, that means a vampire running away from her vampire husband (and children) to a werewolf lover.
* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' twists this around with [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Juliet]] briefly falling into one between [[OfficialCouple Justin]] and [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Mason]].
* ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' starts playing with it in the second season, with [[spoiler: [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Caroline]] developing an intense friendship and bond with [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Tyler]] while still having some feelings for her ex-boyfriend [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Matt]]]]. Season 3 takes it further as Tyler has also become a vampire, and Klaus, who is also vampire and werewolf. In short, it's a vampire girl torn between two werewolf-vampire hybrids.
* ''Series/HouseOfFrankenstein1997'' features vampire (the BigBad), the LoveInterest (a woman bitten by a werewolf) and the hero (the cop). Lampshaded when a monster expert mentions that vampires love lycanthropes; "Their own little animal -- you know what men are like."
* Season three of ''Series/PennyDreadful'' features a major love triangle between werewolf Ethan Chandler, ApocalypseMaiden Vanessa Ives, and Dracula.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Averted in the GirlsLove VisualNovel ''VisualNovel/AkaiIto'', despite having premise of LesbianVampire [[FurAgainstFang versus]] {{Beastess}} and each of them have a route. [[MultipleEndings Due to the way the routes are written]], you can't [[RedStringOfFate connect to another character]] when you're already connected to someone.
* A weird version of this appears to be going on between Vulcanus/Valvatorez/Fenrich in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4|A Promise Unforgotten}}''. Of note to what makes it weird: There's no human in the triangle (Vulcanus is an angel [[spoiler:though she was formerly a human]]), the ''vampire'' is at the center of the triangle, and both the vampire and the werewolf are [[HoYay male]]. There is, however, a Bad End where TokenHuman Fuka makes Valvatorez and Fenrich her harem. They're not happy with it, particularly since she makes them wear [[DraggedIntoDrag maid outfits]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' features a rather unorthodox example in the episode ''Tyger, Tyger''. Selina Kyle is being fought over by Batman, [[CaptainObvious who's a man only dressed as a bat]], and a Were''cat''.
* In a HalloweenEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'', Roberta believes she's being fought over between a mysterious vampire and loner werewolf. [[spoiler: Subverted, when it's revealed that both the monsters are actually gay for each other.]]
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}'' episode, "The Unseen Reflection", features this as part of a ShowWithinAShow.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MonsterHigh'' Valentines Day special, Clawd the werewolf is trying to figure out what to get Draculaura for her birthday. Enter her ex-boyfriend, the charming vampire Valentine...
