The title of this trope doesn't make any sense. Members of the love triangle aren't represented by SIDES, but by ANGLES. Should this be mentioned in some sort of "yes, we know, but we're keeping it anyway" way on the trope page?

Nah, that would be far too pedantic. We don't have to be that percise.

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.

Ah, okay.

Is there a trope that might resemble that?
