The name of this trope is misspelled. Hypotenuse is a geometry term, hypnoteuse means female hypnotist.

At any rate I'm specifically interested in examples where this overlaps with Girls Love and School Girl Lesbians.

I can't see a misspelling — it's written exactly like the geometry term, which it is meant to be.

The geometry term makes no sense?

It's a reference to Love Triangles. By "murdering the hypotenuse", you're removing a side through killing one person in the triangle, making the other two people (hopefully) get together. Female hypnotists have no relation to the trope.

I was thinking it had to do with thinking killing the other woman would break the "Spell" so to speak.

Is there a trope that might resemble that?
