Go To

  • Adekan:
    • There are several villains that are like this but in particular there is Kusuko's father who is a powder box merchant who enslaves low-born young women and sells them to men to be abused, after murdering his low-born wife for unverified suspicions that she was cheating on him, he then turns around and imprisons his daughter in a Gilded Cage while telling her terrifying tales of the outside world...and having sex with a girl who looks like a carbon copy of her on the side. Not horrifying enough for you? To keep his daughter in line, he tells her scary stories about a monstrous yuurei, Nainai-sama, who haunts their box-maze mansion. Except Nainai-sama is real...

    • There's also Anri. When a panda that he likes rebuffs him and has to be transferred to be with his panda wife and child Anri calls Shiro and complains about it to him while crying. Shiro complains that its annoying because Anri cries and calls to complain every time he's dumped. It's also implied that Anri resents when Shiro rejects his displays of affection.
  • Ennil El of After War Gundam X. She makes advances on Garrod because she believes they're Birds of a Feather—lonely young people who've been raised harsh by a harsh world. When he rejects her at gunpoint (thinking she's trying to rob him), she spends much of the series trying to get revenge on him and teams up with multiple villains to this end. She even passes up a chance of a life at peace when offered a new mobile suit to pursue him with—it's only when she unwittingly befriends his crewmate Toniya that she begins to question her course.

  • Aoshima of Ah! My Goddess is a playboy that can have any woman he wants except for Belldandy and Skuld. When they reject him he doesn't take it well and attempts to rape them. Thankfully, they both escape him before he can.
  • Ai no Kusabi: Iason and Guy really took it to extremes since they are both Yandere for Riki. Robby, Kirie and Miguel The Paradita didn't handle rejection by Riki well either.
  • Akame ga Kill!: Esdeath. She's very driven to getting Tatsumi under her wing, but he keeps saying no. Eventually, she gives up when she realizes that he will never change his answer, and begrudgingly decides to have him put up for execution while planning to wound him bad enough to make others think he's dead, take him away, and presumably heal him up and continue her attempts to win him over. Until it finally sinks in that she'll never have him and she decides to kill him for real.

  • Nanako Saeki of Aku no Hana snaps when Kasuga breaks up with her for Nakamura. To the point that she rapes Kasuga in the hopes of winning him back.
  • Anatolia Story: Under the influence of Nakia's rose water, Prince Zananza threatens to kill Yuri if he cannot have her as his princess.
  • Axis Powers Hetalia:
    • Belarus has an unreturned Yandere crush on brother Russia. She doesn't react very well when Russia tries to get her to leave him alone. Meaning she scratches at his door, tears out his doorknob, and stands in the doorway with an insane look on her face telling him that they need to get "married"...
    • England tries to kill America when he tries to declare independence and leave him, and is hinted to still hold feelings of resentment about it after he decides to let America go. He also mentions in one strip that he suffers from a broken heart, and most people assume it's because of America's rejection. He's shown in strips to become bed ridden when he thinks of America's rejection and attempts to strangle him in one scene when America tells him the scones he made for him are awful. Also, in the Fantasia Cd drama he sounds increasingly unhinged as he repeats to his cute supernatural friend "Hey, you won't ever leave me right? You'll stay by my side? You won't ever leave, right? Right? RIGHT?!" This is a Call-Back to his heartbreak over America declaring independence on him and leaving him.
    • Russia was bullied and rejected by potential friends when he was younger. This sends him into a shock and makes him very depressed and is part of his Dark and Troubled Past. Because of his past he strives to make friends and keep them, by force.
    • Spain misconstrues Romano's roundabout request of food and naps in response to him asking him to marry him as rejection. He laments to France about no one liking him like they used to.
    • Korea has feelings for his brother China and a strip shows that if China answers "No" to his question of whether China likes him he still will consider forcing China into sex with the line "In that case, I'll just fuck you!" The manga describes this as being a bad ending, which describes japanese games, anime's and manga's tendency to have incredibly depressing or gory endings.
    • France laments over his girl dumping him in a Christmas strip (whom is assumed to be Seychelles). He says he wants to make Christmas into a violent bloodbath since his girl left him.
  • Bakemonogatari:
    • Hitagi Senjougahara makes it clear that she won't tolerate her boyfriend Koyomi Araragi showing interest in any other woman. At one point, she nearly stabs him in the eye with a mechanical pencil after he so much as talks about another female using her first name without an honorific. And only stops once he screams, "Stop it! There's nothing guilty about it! I didn't mean it like I knew her well! I'm only devoted to you, Senjougahara!"
    • Suruga doesn't like that Hitagi is dating Koyomi as she has a crush on Hitagi herself. So she basically stalks Koyomi and tries to beat him to death twice.
    • Nadeko is this as well. At the temple near the end of Nadeko Medusa she decides that since Koyomi will probably keep getting girlfriends, she might as well stab him to death now rather than experience the grief of having him taken away from her over and over.
  • Reimi from Bamboo Blade has stalked Miyako from the shadows ever since the latter had brutally rebuffed the advances of the former's crush in middle school (though the two attend different high schools).
    • There's also the nuclear holocaust of a yandere that is Sakaki Ura. Ura Sakaki. The word "obsession" doesn't even begin to describe her secret infatuation with an actor named Takigawa Junya, Junya Takigawa, who just so happens to be completely oblivious to Ura's existence. Then Ura discovers the object of her affection is in a sexual scandal with an actress he works with, and the yandere mode kicks off like the Wrath of God in a way that only Bamboo Blade could do.
  • Griffith of Berserk was implied to have feelings for Guts. He didn't respond very well when Guts left him. At all. One of the ways he responds to the rejection is by sleeping with Princess Charlotte and in the movie the entire time he's doing that his mind is completely focused on Guts and how he left him.
    • He also started harboring Yandere tendencies toward Casca as well, and the discovery that Guts and Casca were in a relationship would cause him to snap, leading to everything going to hell. Literally.
    • Rosine also had an obsession with her friend Jill. So, when Jill definitely refuses her We Can Rule Together offer, Rosine captures her and tries to turn her into one of her pseudo-Elves by force.
    • A heartbreaking example can be found in Guts. Being raped made Casca insane and unable to give consent, so whenever Guts wants to continue their sexual relationship she gets scared and rebuffs him. Sometimes it was because he nearly lost control of himself and tried to rape her. This all adds to his heartbreak, especially considering they used to be so close before everything went to hell and he Desperately Craves Affection from her.
  • Elegy of Betrayal Knows My Name threatens to kill Luka due to the latter's love for Yuki when she has feelings for Luka herself.
  • Black Butler:
    • Angela/Ash in the anime tortures and tries to kill Sebastian when he rejects their advances and We Can Rule Together offer and pays more attention to Ciel.
    • Also, Alois is hinted to love Claude and is extremely jealous of Ciel for having Claude's love and angry at Claude rejecting him to the point of acting cruelly towards Ciel (when his soul is in Ciel's body he scratches his chest out of spite), beating up Hannah, and wondering if he should tear Claude's wings off so he can't leave when comparing him to a butterfly. Alois also flirts with Ciel and tells him that he wants him and says that he'll kill all his loved ones unless he agrees to become his. It's implied he's joking in regards to Ciel though.
    • The Viscount Druitt becomes Yandere for Elizabeth's friend in an OVA and tries to kill the both of them so no one can interfere with their love and so that they can be in heaven together. He's stopped thankfully.
    • Angelina "Madame Red" Durless. She saw her first love choose her sister over her, and later both lost her Second Love and her unborn child, which left her unable to have children and mentally/emotionally scarred to boot. While this doesn't mean she's justified into becoming one half of the most serial killer in Victorian England (Jack the Ripper) her story is quite tragic.
    • Elizabeth has a hidden dark side. When she catches her fiance Ciel in a moment of Not What It Looks Like with another girl she looses it and attempts to attack him. Also, she wants to be Proper Lady for Ciel. In the manga she hides her Little Miss Badass side from him, fearing he'd think she was "uncute" and reject her affection (as he was shit scared of her Almighty Mom Frances). This causes her lots of inner pain as she forces herself to hide her strength for Ciel's sake rather than her own...
  • In Black Cat the protagonist's enemy, Creed Diskenth has an obsessive fixation on him, and when Train leaves the Chronos Numbers, he kills his closest friend and doesn't hesitate later on to kidnap his friends and hold them hostage.
  • Garcia of Black Lagoon listens in on Roberta (who he has a big crush on) getting frisky with a guy in the El Baile de la Muerte arc and cries while biting his finger to the point of bleeding.
  • Everyone in Black★Rock Shooter exhibits insanity when they think their loved one has someone else in their life.
  • Karl Fei-Ong of Blood+. The fact that Diva didn't love him is what drove him insane.
  • Book Girl: Miu. Well, the first time. She was so sad and angry with Konoha for not telling her about him writing the book (thus feeling that he was distancing himself away from her and being as Yandere as she is) that she decided to kill herself right in front of him, so that he'd regret and suffer his entire life.
  • What specifically pushes Claudine...! into shooting himself dead is how Sirene, his third and last love, leaves him for his older brother Andre.
    • Similarly, what pushes Louis Lacques into killing Claudine's dad and his own sister Cecilia is finding out that they were involved... since Louis himself was Monsieur de Montesse's former lover.
  • Code Geass:
    • Mao's treatment of Lelouch seems this way - C.C. originally made a contract with him, but abandoned Mao and made one with Lelouch instead. So Mao tries to kill him by manipulating a girl who has unrequited love for Lelouch, turning into a temporary Yandere. It fails. Somewhat averted in that Mao offers to leave Lelouch alone if C.C. comes with him. Concerned with losing one of his best allies, however, Lelouch prevents this. After that, Mao directly goes after Lelouch in the most potentially destructive manner possible.
    • Rolo gets very upset when Lelouch acts indifferent and cold towards him and initially has the idea to kill Nunnally in order to be Lelouch's only sibling.
  • Cross Ange: When Ange herself refuses his advances, Embryo tortures her by forcing her mind to undergo overwhelming pain and then physical need. When Ange tries to escape, Embryo shows his true colors by taking over the mind of her faithful maid Momoka and even tries to fatally shoot Momoka when she resists. Upon the final battle, Embryo simply decides to obliterate all of humanity again, coldly rebuking one of his subordinates for caring about others, and tries to sacrifice his loyal followers to buy himself time. When he is through trying to seduce Ange, Embryo tries to beat and rape her before trying to kill her for not "accepting his love".
  • Dance with Devils: Just about every member of the male student council has these feelings for Ritsuka, in particular Urie and Shiki. Episode 3 strongly implied this with Urie's line about how Rtisuka is "mine and mine alone" and saying he wants to hold her in his embrace until she falls apart. Also, Shiki's song is all about him and Ritsuka and includes lines and imagery which invoke rape metaphors. He also shivers in excitement when thinking about possible hardships she could endure and threatens to kill her if she doesn't stay with him forever.
  • Maki in Darker Than Black, (despite being a cute little kid), right down to trying to murder the guy his crush is in love with.
  • Genkaku of Deadman Wonderland is in love with Nagi/his carnage. He definitely didn't respond well to Nagi rejecting him and decided to kill him.
    • Masaru "Chaplin" Sukegawa was imprisoned after murdering a woman his lover was caught with.
  • DearS: The entire DearS race. They are a slave race that needs the love and appreciation of a master race to survive. If they stop feeling appreciated, they wipe out their "masters" and look for new ones.
  • In a Death Note flashback, when Misa tries to ignore a Stalker with a Crush who surprises her at night, he pulls a knife, saying, "Then I'll kill you and myself!"
  • Happens at least twice in Detective Conan. The first time, the guy, a former boyfriend of an Idol Singer who was blackmailed by her manager into breaking up with her, not only killed himself... but he made it look as if the Idol Singer who he believed rejected him(actually a case of Poor Communication Kills) actually murdered him.
    • Inverted in another case. Miyuki Hyuga wanted to marry Hideomi Nagato, but he was still feeling the guilt over the incident in which he caused the house fire that killed her parents, and as a result Hideomi crossed the Despair Event Horizon and later killed himself.
  • In Devil May Cry: The Animated Series has the Prison Warden, who has an obvious and creepy crush on Dante. After Dante rejects his advances and kicks his ass, he has a temper tantrum and orders Dante to be thrown in the special cell. Just as Dante planned — the guy he's been hired to rescue is in the same block.
  • D.Gray-Man: Komui is implied to be in love with his sister Lenalee and goes nuts if there's even a hint of a guy being interested in her. In fact, a way to wake him up is to say "Lenalee's getting married." In the novel, when Bak (who also has feelings for her) gives Komui a tea that makes one tell the truth he has a breakdown when Bak asks Komui "Isn't Lenalee is free to love who she wants?" He takes this to mean that Lenalee is in love with a guy and immediately pulls out a machine gun saying "Then I'll kill everyone and then die!"
  • Dragon Ball Super takes it Up to Eleven with Barry Khan. When Videl, a married woman, shoots him down when he tries to flirt with her, he takes it so badly that he first hires Gohan to be a stuntman in the hopes that he'll be badly hurt in the very least, and then tries to trick Videl into thinking Gohan is cheating on her. Videl doesn't buy it for a second and snubs him again, even taking the time to call him out on being so pathetic.
  • Kei of Drug & Drop has obsessive feelings for Kazahaya, to the point of warning him that she would kill anybody who got in the way if he left her.
  • Durarara!!:
    • Haruna Niekawa. Professor Nasujima at Mikado's school clearly has a thing for Anri, which naturally Squicks the hell out of her. The same guy is also dating Haruna Niekawa (one of his former students). Or was. Haruna doesn't like that he's changed his preferences, so she gave Anri a visit and tried to kill her...
    • Professor Nasujima himself seems to have shades of this. When Anri makes it increasingly clear one night that she's not having any of his advances towards her he menacingly backs her into a wall, appears to lose it from the look on his face, and attempts to stalk after her.
    • There's also Namie Yagiri and Mika Harima towards Seiji. They're so yandere that they're willing to get rid of Celty's head (with Mika being so far gone as to want to eat the head's blood which Seiji is yandere for) if it means they can have Seiji for themselves.
    • Though Mika actually out-yanderes Namie, as when Seiji smashes her face when she takes a glimpse of Celty's head, Mika gets plastic surgery to fix her grievous injuries... and also makes herself look exactly like Celty with her head on. Can we say, yikes?
    • The healthiest relationship in the series is probably the relationship between a back-alley surgeon (Shinra) and a headless female (Celty), where the former outright says that he dissembled about the location of the latter's head because he never wanted her to leave him. Actually, that's the part where there relationship improves.
  • In Elfen Lied, when Lucy learns Kouta lied to her about the gender of the cousin he was taking to the festival, she murders his father and sister in a fit of jealousy and tries to murder his cousin.
  • Ergo Proxy:
    • An Entourage AutoReiv belonging to Re-l Mayer, Iggy contracted the Cogito Virus and grew to become enraged at Re-l's lack of regard for him. He despises Proxies and blames Vincent for taking Re-l - his sole reason for existence - away from him. He develops an unusual state of both loving and hating Re-l, and locks her up to "protect" her, while he attempts to kill Vincent. However, an AutoReiv belonging to a Proxy that Re-l killed, attempts to kill Re-l at the same time, causing Iggy to return to Re-l. The AutoReiv goes into a self-detonation mode and destroyed much of Iggy except for part of his head (which left Iggy "conscious" to some extent). In the end, not wanting to see Iggy suffer due to the virus, Re-l shoots him and buries his head.
    • Daedalus also qualifies. When Re-l runs off with Vincent, Doctor D decides to clone himself a new Re-l as a replacement.
  • In Fruits Basket Kagura Sohma is usually a cute, sweet girl with a cheerful disposition, but she actually shows her love for Kyo by beating him to a pulp on sight, especially if he refuses her advances. This frequently leads to Shigure's house being broken. When they were both little kids, apparently she got Kyo to propose to her by threatening him with a knife (or a big rock in the anime). Subverted at the end when she grows to accept his affection for Tohru.
  • In Eikoden of Fushigi Yuugi, there's Mayo Sakaki. She's obsessed with her coach Taka (Tamahome's Earth persona), and goes even more crazy when she finds out him and Miaka were married and are expecting a baby. She steals The Universe of the Four Gods book, intending to rewrite the story so that she becomes the priestess of Suzaku, along with making Tamahome her husband. Poor Miaka goes into a coma, and her unborn baby girl Hikari is transferred inside Mayo. When Tamahome confronts Mayo, she points a dagger to her stomach and threatens to kill his unborn child if he doesn't agree to be with her. She also outright lies to Empress Houki (Hotohori's widow) about her and Tamahome's relationship, with Tamahome standing right next to her and protesting about it. She's easily hated amongst the fans of the series, especially since she doesn't get any sort of comeuppance for the trouble she causes.
  • Yuno from Future Diary towards Yukiteru. Yuki has to resort to claiming to be in love with Yuno to prevent her from murdering his friend out of jealousy. Because the girl is Yuki's friend Yuno believes there might be a chance that Yuki could fall in love with her. After this she chains him to a chair to keep Yuki safe and prevent him from cheating while telling him they're going to be together forever.
  • Reika from Gantz is so in love with Kurono that, when he rejects her, she decides to make a copy of Kurono for herself and she goes though with it.
  • Get Backers:
    • Kazuki's gang, Fuuga (lit. "Elegance"), is really into the Ho Yay. There's some kind of Toshiki/Kazuki/Juubei Love Triangle, apparently; Toshiki even attempts to Murder the Hypotenuse, claiming that Kazuki never paid any attention to him when Juubei was around... You can probably throw in Saizou, too. The only gang member who doesn't act like Kazuki jilted them at some point is probably Sakura, Juubei's sister.
    • Fudou develops a twisted obsession with Ban which started after Ban ripped his arm off. When Ban ignores him to focus more on his comrades, namely Ginji, he decides Ginji has to die so that Ban will pay more attention to him.
  • Akari of Girl Got Game is a type 2 Yandere for Kyo. Attempts to drive her away are met with suicide threats and Wolverine Claws.
  • Girls Bravo: Lisa Fukuyama is an insane user of black magic who develops an intense infatuation for Yukinari after his appearance matches a description in her horoscope for her soul mate and often employs her magic to get closer to him-which often fails spectacularly. She often has her attendant Kosame stand nearby with her loaded gun trained on Yukinari, making a not so subtle threat to shoot Yukinari if he refuses her.
  • Girls Saurus: Haruka attacked Shingo for rejecting her sending him to the hospital, but spends almost the entire manga honestly believing that Shingo's rejection made her the victim. Subverted in the final chapters when she learns the truth.
  • Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun: Inner Reika (who's Yandere for Shungo) tries to rape Shungo to help get her feelings across, is willing to pull a Murder the Hypotenuse on Mayu her rival for Shungo's love, and completely loses it in the last episode upon seeing him try to kiss Mayu, screaming at her subordinate Hosaka to kill Shungo. She gets over it though.
  • Shuichi Shindou from Gravitation qualifies for this when the stress of Yuki being outed puts him into the hospital, and Shuichi talks at length about how he would rather Yuki die than leave him.
    • Yuki and his sister/Tohma's wife Mika acknowledge that Yuki's break-up with Shuichi was for Shuichi's own protection; had Yuki not ended it, it's heavily implied that Tohma, whom is a Yandere for Yuki, would have killed Shuichi. And this may not be the first incident of this happening.
  • Gunslinger Girl: First, we have Elsa, who shot her handler Lauro and then put a bullet through her eye because Lauro did not return her feelings. Many chapters later, Henrietta, who as of late had been ignored by Jose, frags him during a rampage against Dante's men brought about by Ski Mask Guy. Jose has her finish the job. As Henrietta puts one more through Jose, Jose shoots her through the eye, killing her instantly.
  • In Haiyore! Nyarko-san Mahiro's mother Yoriko says that Mahiro and Nyarko should start their relationship slow and be friends first; Nyarko, mistakenly thinking she's been friend zoned, has the Giving Up the Ghost reaction.
  • Haou Airen: Reilan didn't exactly kill herself with her own hands, but set a Thanatos Gambit specifically to have revenge against the Bastard Boyfriend that left her for Kurumi.
  • Haru To Natsu has protagonist Makoto caught between twin sisters who both want him,. He prefers Haruna, the stable and sweet model student, while also being chased by Natsuki, who wants him because Haruna wants him. Oh, and did I mention Haruna's quite Yandere for Makoto? To the point that their first kiss is while she's holding a very large butcher knife, and later promises (while wielding that same knife) that if he ever cheats, he wouldn't like what happens.
  • In Hatsukoi Zombie, School Idol Shibuai Misawo falls for the rich, handsome and refined Ibusuki (who is incidentally a girl, but she doesn't know that), and she will capture his heart whether he agrees or not. She gets even more obsessed and aggressive after he coldly turns her down, with arguments that range from secators to needle-point holders.
  • Ryoki of Hot Gimmick in regards to Hatsumi his girlfriend. At one point in the manga Hatsumi tells Ryoki that she can't be with him anymore when he orders her to make the impossible decision of choosing between him or her family. When she leaves him he's shown thinking to himself "That stupid woman...If she can't be mine she should just die."
  • Faina Shinozaki from Infinite Ryvius. When her boyfriend breaks up with her, she tries to kill him. When her previous boyfriend broke up with her, she did kill him. She also killed an old friend just for mentioning his name.
  • Ichitaka Seto of I"s is a normal Japanese high school student. His one hang-up is that due to a particularly nasty rejection by a girl when he was younger, he can't properly show his affection to anyone he's interested in.
  • JoJo's Bizarre Adventure:
    • Dio is so arrogant that he considers it a blow to his pride if anyone should reject him, even if he doesn't have feelings for them. It makes him act quite violent. In his opinion, he should be the one dishing out the hate, not the other way around. On one occasion he gave Erina a Forceful Kiss to further break Jonathan. She reacted by washing her mouth out with muddy water. Dio responded with a blow to her face.
    • Yukako Yamagashi from Part 4 is in love with Koichi and is determined to make him love her back. She kidnaps him and tries to hold him hostage until he loves her back. Koichi develops his stand further and she decides to let him free rather than fight it. She gets better...sort of. She decides to pursue a more consensual relationship, though she is no less aggressive in her attempts.
  • K's Fushimi Saruhiko has an Unrequited Love for Yata Misaki that is apparently so strong that it drove him insane. Because Misaki had found new friends and a new family with HOMRA and started to drift away from him he lost himself in jealousy and heartbreak, believing that making Misaki hate him was the only way to get his attention. The Manga Days of Blue shows very clearly that he still suffers badly over being away.
    • Mishina confesses to Kukuri in a over the top manner and she rejects him. He responds by screaming dramatically "MY HEART HAS BEEN BROKEN!!!!" and crying.
  • Balder of Kamigami no Asobi is possessive of Yui and jealous of the other's attraction towards her. He becomes a completely different person when he sees Yui with somebody that's not him. He explicitly states to Loki that if he has to see her with somebody else he'd rather see her dead. Luckily Loki stops him with a Cooldown Hug.
  • Rune from Karakuridouji Ultimo falls into this in regards to his current unrequited love for Yamato. He's willing to rape and kill Yamato and then kill himself because he doesn't love him back.
  • Kara no Kyoukai:
  • Kare Kano: Arima's dark side. Any time that he comes onto the screen, you just know Arima is seconds away from shattering. This is made worse because to the outside world, he appears to be a put together, genius with his only match being Yukino, his girlfriend. It's scary to slowly see his thoughts morph from wanting to be with Yukino, to wanting to isolate her from everyone and keep her just for himself. His fighting with these thoughts proves that Arima is a good guy, but him imagining tying Yukino in chains does not bode well for their relationship. This is a rare case of Stalker with a Crush in which not only is the stalker in a committed relationship with his crush, but he is also portrayed as so sympathetic that you just want to save him from himself.
    • The worst has to be the end of Chapter 42 right after Yukino decides that she wants her world to be bigger than just her and Arima. The realization that he cannot bind her to him makes the dark side that Arima was always trying to hide come out. And it is frightening.
  • Lethal Chef Bianchi from Katekyō Hitman Reborn! goes into a homicidal rage whenever she sees adult Lambo who looks exactly like her deceased ex-boyfriend Romeo...who apparently died of food poisoning. She also has an unrequited crush on Reborn and is perfectly willing to eliminate anybody who has a 'bad influence' on him.
    • When Tsuna thinks Kyoko doesn't like him like he likes her he once confines himself to his room and shouts something to the effect of "I can't live if Kyoko-chan denies me!" This is mainly because she was nice to him and she's the reason he even goes to school.
    • Gokudera is implied to have a crush on Tsuna and whenever he misunderstands and thinks Tsuna only sees him as a nuisance he falls into despair.
  • Naruse in Kawaii Akuma. He confesses to Akiyoshi another man and when Akiyoshi rejects him he undergoes a complete change of attitude and rapes him.
  • One of the creepiest examples comes from Minoru Murao's Knights manga. Of all people, Nina, the cute little girl of the cast goes nuts when she assumes that the object of her affection Mist is physically involved with his Ms. Fanservice companion Euphemia. Her response is to lead a supernatural agent of the Corrupt Church (the same Church that nearly burned her at the stake after accusing her of being a witch) to kill him. She even shoots him in the leg with a crossbow. Her motivation? To send his soul to Hell, where it will be "purified", then join him in death so they can be together for all eternity. Keep in mind that this guy saved her life in the first few chapters, which is why she's so hung up on him in the first place. This is borderline Love Makes You Evil. To her credit, she does eventually realize just how utterly screwed up she was, and works to undo her actions.
  • In Koharu No Hibi Koharu is so obsessed with Akira that she acts like this in regards to him. She sexually assaults The Rival in an attempt to get the Sacred First Kiss she wanted from Akira back from her, gives her the Death Glare, and gets Dull Eyes of Unhappiness after he breaks up with her. When she feels her position as potential love interest to Akira threatened because of The Rival she ends up making a Stalker Shrine of him in her room and licks a picture of him she has on her phone to comfort herself.
  • The grotesque huge Captain Continental lusts after Jonathan in Legend of the Blue Wolves. However, Jonathan rejects his amorous advances in favor of his growing feelings for Leonard. Captain Continental notices their growing closeness and does everything he can to separate them, including calling Jonathan to his office alone so he can try to make him sexually submit to him and beating him with a whip when he again refuses, rushing at Leonard with the intent to beat him after he tries to stop Captain Continental from beating up Jonathan and trying to make him submit to him. He later attempts to have Leonard locked into solitary confinement in order to get him out of the way after framing Jonathan for being a spy. His next and most horrific act is for him and his subordinate to beat and gang rape Jonathan.
  • Dai of Let Dai for Jaehee. He ties Jaehee down to train tracks when he considers him to have spurned his love.
  • Manami Anzai from Life, who first appears as a cute and childish clique leader who snaps utterly when she suspects Ayumu is trying to steal away her boyfriend. She goes so insane that she then dates a gang leader on the side to use him to get back at both Ayumu and her boyfriend, and then promptly screws her boyfriend and the gang leader both over. Not to mention her vow to kill Ayumu with her bare hands. Then she crosses into Cute and Psycho territory.
  • Ritsu in Loveless sexually abuses a young Soubi and generally acts like a Jerkass because Soubi's mother married another man over him.
  • In Lovely Complex Mimi refuses to listen to what Otani has to say because she assumes he's going to break up with her and covers her ears but Koizumi punches her and tells her to deal with it. She gets better.
  • Magic Knight Rayearth: Nova wants Hikaru all to herself and won't hesitate to kill her friends in order to eliminate competition.
  • In Mahou Sensei Negima!, Tsukuyomi just wants Setsuna to herself, tries to rape her, and wonders if it's okay to kill her charge and girlfriend Konoka.
  • Mai-HiME: Shizuru out of her love for Natsuki, goes insane when she believes Natsuki has rejected her (Natsuki, however, also considers Shizuru her most important person) and kills those she sees as Natsuki's enemies. And even better, her CHILD is named Kiyohime, see the Myth and Legend section of this page for more.
  • Makai Ouji: Michael has a touchy-feely attitude towards Uriel, gets irritated when Uriel shows concern for William's well-being, and stomps on him while telling him that he should have eyes for him only. It's also implied that he threatens to tear off Uriel's remaining wing partly because of he's angry of his focus on William.
  • Mawaru-Penguindrum:

    • Tsubasa Yuuki also had something with Yuri and when Yuri broke it off Tsubasa appeared to stab Tabuki out of jealousy.
    • Episode 14: When Shouma decided to cut off all contact with Ringo, and rejected her when she confronts him on it Ringo gets an extremely upset look on her face and cries.
  • Mazinger Z: You would not know unless you read the Gosaku Ota alternate manga -that was published in parallel with Go Nagai original's version and is the only place where he got a Backstory-, but Big Bad Dr. Hell was one when he was young. During his college days he fell in love with a woman named Yumiko who would become The Hero Kouji's grandmother and he stalked her obsessively (in his own words, he became her shadow). He tried to seem nice and totally not a pervert, but when he found out that she was engaged with someone else, he -who was already psychologically fragile and unstable- flipped out completely and attempted to Murder the Hypotenuse in a very discreet way: storming in the campus with a rifle and yelling "DIE, Kabuto!"
  • In Minamoto-kun Monogatari Rokujou's sanity is way gone when Kaoruko tells her that Terumi does not love her and doesn't need her like she would like to believe. One panel is so dedicated to her thinking thoughts like "Lies, No way, You're wrong", etc. that the words are overlapping with each other. The symptoms are right there, walls full of photos of the protagonist, wanting to keep him locked up in her room, and scary crazed eyes when he says no.
  • Mirage of Blaze: Naoe towards Kagetora. When Kagetora repeatedly tries to refuse Naoe he gets fed up leading to him handling him quite forcefully and attempting to rape him.
  • In Monster Eva Heinemann tries to win over Tenma several times after they break up, each time becoming angrier and angrier until she threatens to turn in his tie and use it against him.

    • Sakura in regards to Sasuke. Sasuke rejecting her Anguished Declaration of Love in Part I really depresses her, sends her to tears, and eventually causes her to make rash decisions, most notably in the Five Kage Summit arc.
    • In the canon movie The Last: Naruto the Movie, Naruto crosses the Despair Event Horizon after getting rejected by Hinata (actually a ruse so that she could save her younger sister Hanabi), as bad as calling out her name in a delirious state for three days. Later when he comes around, Shikamaru and Sai point out this flaw to him. Then he spends a whole day and night curled up in a Troubled Fetal Position and comes very close to giving up on everything. It's not shocking, considering his Backstory and his history with Sasuke.
    • Also in The Last, when Toneri catches Hinata in the act of trying to destroy the Tenseigan, and figures out that her "accepting" his marriage proposal was a ruse, he goes into full Yandere mode and decides to Hypnotize the Princess.
  • In Natsu e no Tobira, Marion's Cute Bookworm friend Claude commits suicide after Marion rejects his Anguished Declaration of Love while he tries to rape Marion while being drugged. The next day, his body is found floating in a river, with his wrists slit; Marion has an emotional meltdown at this and blames himself.
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion:
    • Alternate Character Interpretation of Shinji puts him in this category. In End of Evangelion, when Asuka rejects Shinji when he's close to crossing the Despair Event Horizon he snaps and strangles her in a Neck Lift. In a more familial sense Shinji holds resentment towards his father for abandoning him as a kid which he took as a sign that he wasn't wanted.
    • Asuka gets quite upset when Kaji rejects her and when Shinji acts cold towards her as shown in a Director's cut. It's revealed she deeply resents their rejections and it is part of the reason for her downward spiral.
  • The subtext of Yurimaru's death via Zakuro's Action Bomb trap in Ninja Scroll is blatant. Yurimaru is an an electrokinetic Bishōnen who uses Razor Floss—Zakuro is a viciously inventive explosives expert with at the least a prominent facial scar and at most is so covered in scars she looks like Frankenstein's Monster. Zakuro has a major crush on Yurimaru, but Yurimaru is a Depraved Homosexual in love with (and sleeping with) their leader, Himuro Gemma, and so he rejects her advances rather bluntly. Yurimaru promptly stumbles into an explosives-rigged shed near the climax of the movie, and is blatantly blown to pieces when a detonating rat triggers the whole place going up in flames.
  • Nodame Cantabile: In the Paris Chapter, when Chiaki wanted to break up with Nodame, she beat the crap out of him (on a bridge overlooking the Seine) until he changed his mind.
  • Chloe of Noir. She turns psycho after Kirika rejects (or more accurately, fails to even notice) her advances, and then acts to protect Mireille from her, causing her to snap.
  • Tabool in Now and Then, Here and There is unhealthily obsessed with garnering any attention whatsoever from his best-friend-turned-rival, Nabuca, to the point that he gets jealous of a freaking six-year-old. Long story short: Nabuca continues to reject Tabool and it does not end well.

    • Arlong's possessiveness towards Nami goes far past his stated desire of keeping her because she's a good surveyor, and his emotional abuse, manipulations, and threats to kill her friends and family if she ever leaves him make him out to be a crazy abusive boyfriend. Hell, he even calls her adorable in the dub.
    • Blackbeard did a I Have You Now, My Pretty ploy to Jewelry Bonney. He said that she was too weak to join his crew, but she could stay if she became his woman. Her response was a kick to Blackbeard's face. He responded by getting pissed off, screaming at her that she doesn't act like a woman should, and says they should just stick with his original plan of turning her over to be arrested so they can get a ship in return.
    • Absalom spied on Nami and accosted her while she was in the bath and hit on her in a scene resembling a rape attempt. She hit him with a Groin Attack. He follows that up by stalking and kidnapping her and tries to use force to make her his bride. He's even stated to like weak woman that don't fight back.
  • Oniisama e...: Mariko Shinobu threatens to kill Nanako and herself when the latter tries to decline staying overnight, then holds the door closed so she can't get out. Luckily Mariko's mother Hisako provides enough distraction for Nanako to escape, but Mariko still protests.

    • Due to Doldee's influence, Noise tries to kill Vincent so he can't belong to anyone else. Fortunately, Echo stops her and releases her from Doldee's control. Noise also kidnapped and abused Ada and wanted to stab her for being so close to Vincent.
  • Sae in Peach Girl nearly pushes her love rival in front of a bus. And Momo beats up Kiley when he reveals he has a first love. In regards to Toji when he breaks up with her due to Sae's manipulations she sits outside his house in the snow stubbornly to the point of catching a cold and gets pissed him at him, throwing an apple at him, and yells "Don't fuck with me! It's me who is breaking up with you!" Kairi also sits in a Corner of Woe when Momo rejects him. All of them eventually get over the rejections.
  • Perfect Blue: Me-Mania (real name Uchida) has a thing for Mima that she doesn't even notice. When she publicly announces that she's quitting her singing job and moving to something else, Me-Mania takes this as rejection. Being the crazed fan that he is, he sends her a fax message simply saying "TRAITOR" over and over again. Then he stalks her, murders people connected to her, and attempts to rape and kill her.
  • Phi Brain: Puzzle of God gives us Rook and Kaito. The two were childhood friends. Unfortunately, Rook was taken away as a child and eventually became a Tyke Bomb who determined that Kaito was the perfect candidate for Phi Brain, a program filled with Death Trap puzzles, the ultimate goal of which is to create the perfect puzzle solver. It Makes Sense in Context. In the end, though, Obsession's love for Superman proved 100% true, when she sacrificed herself to save him from a magical atttext. As Kaito solves puzzles, Rook gushes over how beautiful he is when doing so. He even concocts a plan to convince Kaito that the best thing to do is to leave his True Companions behind and join him. It doesn't work. He gets very angry when Kaito's Love Interest, Nonoha, displays how close she and Kaito are. When Kaito finally makes it clear that he will never join POG, the conglomerate Rook works for, Rook goes into a mad rage, screaming that Kaito is his and that he has to join him. Rook's personal Dragon needs to hold him back from making a grab at Kaito himself.
  • In Pokémon the most notable example is when Ash's Grovyle fell in love but was rejected; he had a Heroic B.S.O.D. just after. From Bad to Worse, as he evolved into Sceptile immediately afterward, and the shock of rejection made him unable to use his attacks!
  • Princess Jellyfish: Inari puts drugs in Shu's drink, makes it look like she and Shu spent the night together, and threatens to expose the pictures if he refuses her. Subverted, when she pretended to be upset by Shu's rejection and decided to "end it". It turns out to be a very cruel joke and she just shrugs it off. Shu doesn't respond well to this.
  • In Princess Princess when Tooru tells Sayaka that he only sees her as a sister she has a Freak Out! moment and tries to kill herself by jumping off of a cliff. Also, when Yuujirou kisses Tooru to finally convince Sayaka to leave Sayaka runs off crying. She also has a bad habit of stabbing Tooru's girlfriends with scissors and pushing them down stairs.
  • Psyren: Eiji captures Marie, wanting to turn her into a statue. She refuses to be with him, so he decides to kill her.
  • In Ranma ½ Ranma's suitors do not take rejection well. This example is mostly Played for Laughs with them trying to assault each other or him, and using various things like love potions to try to win his love.
    • Also, when female Ranma discovers that Ryoga (that had accidentally hit Ranma with a love rod) doesn't love him back, he transforms himself into a guy and starts to beat the crap out of Ryoga. Normally Ryoga is as equally skilled in Martial Arts as Ranma, but this time Ranma was in such a rage that Ryoga was forced to surrender...
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena
    • Saionji is this in regards to Anthy. Whenever she attempts to resist him he slaps her and slut shames her.
    • Also Akio in regards to Anthy. When she resists his request to come to him one night its implied he rapes her.
    • Kozue holding a razor to Miki's throat while they're both in the bathtub together and calling him a traitor when he refuses to divulge details of his personal affairs to her. She also sleeps around and generally expresses loose morals in order to attract Miki's attention, especially when he shows Anthy more attention.
    • When Shiori is rejected by Ruka she is left looking like a mess and gives Juri a furious expression when angry with her for having Ruka's attention.
    • Juri herself suffers emotional angst over her secret crush on Shiori which she assumes is unrequited. It turns out that Shiori is confirmed to love her too but is in denial about it for certain reasons.
    • When Nanami assumes Touga doesn't love her like she loves him (as he's The Casanova and finds other girls like Utena more interesting) she tries to kill Utena in a duel and acts very violent to her Girl Posse, smacking them and beating them up. They're shown wearing bandages and sporting bruises afterwards. She also tries to humiliate and smacks Anthy when she thinks she has her brothers attention and killed a cat as a child that her brother was giving all of his affection to.
  • Mizore from Rosario + Vampire towards Tsukune, to the point of wanting to kill off competition and freeze him to keep him for herself. Though she does get better about this and becomes nicer after being added to Tsukune's harem.
    • Akuha of the second manga season is an even worse offender towards Moka. She freaks out and goes even more Yandere when she sees Moka choose Tsukune over her and tries to kill him.
  • Sakura Gari: Katsuragi towards Souma. He rapes Masataka who is the one Souma is interested in and orders him to stay away from Souma. When Souma finds out he mentions Masataka's name leading to Katsuragi to try to strangle him and demand him to never say Masataka's name again. Also, Sakurako towards Souma. She goes crazy and tries to kill both Masataka and Souma. Generally, a lot of people towards Souma, whom are mentioned to resort to If I Can't Have You... when Souma tries to get his one time lovers to leave him alone. Also Souma towards Masataka. When Masataka rejects Souma out of fear, Souma is shown to be unaccustomed to not getting sex from someone he wants, so he proceeds to tie Masataka up and rape him repeatedly.
  • Sailor Moon has a few characters that fall under this, namely the first anime's Ali and En (for Usagi and Mamoru respectively), Prince Diamond (for Usagi), and Emerald (for Prince Diamond). And the R movie's Fiore for Mamoru. And Queen Beryl's unrequited love for Endymion/Mamoru. Most of them resort to Murder the Hypotenuse or If I Can't Have You... to have a chance at the one they love.
    • Usagi in the first anime falls into a depression after Mamoru breaks up with her (to be fair, she doesn't know why) and tries to tearfully eat her troubles away.
  • Julian Solo, Poseidon's current host body in Saint Seiya has some shades of this combined with Entitled to Have You in regards to Saori Kido. She rejects his marriage proposal when they first meet, and later, when they face each other again, he tries to offer her one last chance to rule the new world he intends to create once he wipes out humanity with his flood. Naturally, when she refuses, he leaves her trapped in a Bottomless Pit flooding with water.
  • Saitama Chainsaw Shoujo: After being dumped by her boyfriend Fumio Kirisaki declares "Alright, I'll kill him...Then I'll die."
  • Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei:
    • Chiri towards Nozomu. One such case is when Nozomu (and guest commentators) immediately and bluntly rejected her suggestion that they could be a successful match (proper love) in the "Maybe Maybe" episode, despite considering and conceding the possibility of success of romantic relationships with Abiru (puppy love), Nami (normal love), Manami (unfaithful love), Kaere (violent love), Chie (adult relationship), Maria (acquaintanceship) and even Ikkyu (Ho Yay), upon their suggestions. Chiri's reaction to the rejection is frighteningly hilarious.
    • Nozomu kindly informs Matoi that mutual suicide is true love. And then unfortunately informs her that he'd be happy to kill himself with her at any time, so she took up stalking him while her previous stalking victim whom initially hated how she stalked him got annoyed when she stalked Nozomu over him and started stalking her. This leads to a chain of stalking in that each stalker chases after someone that they think has rejected them.
  • Both of the main female characters on School Days fit this trope to a T. In various versions of the story, they turn to murdering not only their rival but Matoko himself when he pays more attention to one girl over another and suicide as a result of the rejection.
  • Sengoku Otome has Akechi Mitsuhide, who is so yandere for her master, Oda Nobunaga, that after catching her "kissing" supposed-rival Hideyoshi (but she was just giving her medicine), she torches the temple that Nobunaga's passed out drunk in, then goes in after her "so they can always be together." Fortunately, the plan is thwarted, everyone survives, and although Mitsuhide passed out from smoke inhalation, she wakes up in the middle of getting mouth-to-mouth from Nobunaga.
  • Seraph of the End:
    • Ferid takes his attachment to Mika and Yuu to the point of ordering Crowley to slice off their arms and legs if they try to run away or resist their attempts to become their comrades. Crowley engages Yuu and his comrades in battle after saying Ferid is pretty twisted to want to do that to someone he wants to be friends with. He's also implied to be upset/angry when Crowley says they're not friends and when Krul whom he has feelings for refuses to submit to him.
    • Miharu's love for Guren led to her becoming a demon, dabbling in human experimentation to make Cursed Gear weaponry, and betraying the Hiragi clan because as she puts it she'll do anything to keep Guren by her side and as such gets very put out when he acts cold towards her or insists he doesn't love her.
    • In the light novels Guren recalls the love story 500 years ago that led the Hiragi Clan to scorn the Ichinose Clan. Apparently, two Hiragi brothers were in love with a beautiful Ichinose girl. They both competed for her love with the younger brother winning her affections. The older brother responded by raping and impregnating the girl and castrating his younger brother. He then banished them from the clan which led to them having to create the Order Of Imperial Moon for themselves. The scorned brother could have defeated them but chose to let them live so they, their children, and their children's children would forever be looked down upon and humiliated by others as the lowly Ichinose clan.
  • Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Miyokichi still pursues Kiku even after he broke up with her. She, during the inn confrontation, wanted to kill herself and take Kiku with her because he would not love her.
  • In the SHUFFLE! anime Kaede goes Yandere when Rin rejects her in favor of Asa. She attacks Asa when she shows up at her house, crosses out Asa's face in a picture of her and Rin, attacks her with a knife in an extra episode, and later throws herself at Rin naked while he's in bed after she just had a Shower of Angst. She gets better.
  • A possible interpretation of Kyouko from Skip Beat!.
  • In Speed Grapher Ginza has a one-sided, desperate love for Saiga, ultimately rapes him, and considers killing the girl he's actually interested in.
  • Nozomu of Stepping on Roses. To insane proportions. He even goes so far as to go around with an ax "Here's Johnny" style trying to catch Sumi "cheating on him".
  • Threads Of Time: Sali Tayi. He explicitly tells Atan Hadas that if she runs away with Moon-Bin and doesn't marry him, he'll kill them both.
  • Togainu no Chi: Keisuke becomes Yandere as a result of not having his feelings toward Akira being acknowledged and being rejected as well as the effects of Line making him insane. Whether he snaps out of it or not depends on the route (in the game). In the anime though, he snaps out of it and reverts back to his normal self.
  • Tokyo Ghoul:
    • Kanae's despair and anger at Tsukiyama's paying attention to others namely Sasaki/Kaneki, over him leads him to consider killing Sasaki to get him out of the way. It also makes him vulnerable to Eto's torture and mind games when she states that she knows Kanae wants to make Sasaki suffer because he has Tsukiyama's attention. He ends up cutting off Sasaki's hand and trying to drop him off a roof to his death out of jealousy and due to Eto's influence on his sanity but Sasaki decapitates him. Also, the cover of Chapter 45 shows Kanae vomiting and choking on rose petals. This is called "Hanahaki Byou", a sort of fictional disease/artistic symbolism where a person vomits flower petals as a result of Unrequited Love.
    • Eto reveals to Kanae as she's manipulating her that they should both destroy the ones they love for not returning their feelings.
    • Tsukiyama is implied to have feelings for Kaneki to a Yandere degree and it's implied Kaneki's repeated refusal to allow Tsukiyama to eat him is infuriating to him. He tries to persuade Kaneki to stay with him and the group and prevent him from basically going on a suicide mission. When Kaneki coldly rejects him Tsukiyama freaks out and tries to kill Kaneki telling him "I'm not going to let anyone get in the way of me eating you! Not even you!" It is heavily implied in later chapters that his feelings for Kaneki became romantic, as the thought of losing him to anyone makes him crumble in despair.
    • Sasaki theorizes that Torso removes the legs of his victims so they won't "leave". Once he becomes obsessed with Mutsuki, he becomes obsessed with following him and making him his, which especially escalates after Mutsuki responds to his affections in the negative leading to him to cut off his limbs to keep him from leaving. A volume 4 diary entry reveals that he believes they share a mysterious connection, and this "spark" of desire will be his salvation. He just believes they need to have a long, private talk.....then Mutsuki will understand their destined bond, and return his love. After he cuts off Mutsuki's legs and arms he declares he will forcibly marry him while having him dressed up in a white dress and putting a wedding ring on his cut off hand. He then stands in front of him shirtless while breathing deeply which heavily implies Attempted Rape. Usually, his past "lovers" rejection of him drives him to extreme violence to punish them including destroying their faces. Also, in chapter 73 of re: Torso brings Mutsuki a flower crown, but gets angry when Mutsuki glares at him and won't accept his compliments. He beats Mutsuki violently while screaming insults. He says that Mutsuki being the only woman and he being the only man in his hideout means that Mutsuki has no choice but to love him. He later has them on a makeshift bed and says he only beats Mutsuki because of how deep his love for him is. It's worth noting that when Mutsuki acts complacent and sympathizes with him rather than reject him does Torso take this as Mutsuki accepting him and it helps to avoid angering him. When Mutsuki again starts to struggle and resist Torso's act of love he slams Mutsuki hard against some rocks.
    • Souta invited Ami to the Ghoul Restaurant and baited her by promising that he would marry her. When it was revealed that she was meant to be eaten and he revealed he didn't love her at all, she had a nervous breakdown and Kaneki thought about how she had gone mad because of the rejection and deception.
    • Touka in a way. She has a fear of abandonment and rejection stemming from her rather leaving her and her brother when they were quite young.
    • Souta/Furuta himself is the biggest example of a yandere who is not good with rejection in the series. He states that everything is about Rize, the girl he wanted to marry as a child. He allowed her to escape the Garden, because he couldn't stand the thought of the Washuus using her as a baby factory. But when she went on to have a life of her own, the thought that she might someday have a child with someone other than him drove him to carry out the Steel Beam incident. He gave her to Kanou, and let her be experimented on, solely so that she couldn't be with anyone else.....and intends to take over V and the CCG so he can marry Rize and force her to bear him a ton of children.
    • Rio reveals his feelings toward Touka in the jail game. When she sadly rejects him he describes how he feels heartbroken and stays in the same spot for several hours after she leaves.
    • The anime added an extra scene where Kaneki hallucinates Hide discovering that he's a ghoul, and coldly rejecting him for it. Then a hallucination of Jason comes in and kills Hide, while poor Kaneki can only scream in abject horror and sorrow. The assumed rejection and just the idea of losing his best friend terrifies Kaneki and it's made a thousand times worse for manga readers who, by the time the episode came out, know that Hide has known for the whole series that Kaneki's a ghoul, has accepted him for it, and wants nothing more than for him to come back home.
    • Shiro and Kurona have a nervous breakdown when Eto breaks them with her words that their 'papa' Kanou doesn't love them like they thought. When he essentially abandons one of the fatally injured twins they crumble in despair.
    • Seidou's apparent feelings for Akira and his horrified belief she and the CCG are rejecting him when they resolve to attack him when he becomes a ghoul against his wishes which is the very thing they're meant to fight leads to him attempting to strangle Akira to death. Luckily, Amon shows up in time.
    • In chapter 123 Mutsuki comments that the cafe stinks like ghouls, and asks if ghouls are what Kaneki cares about now. Smiling all creepy, Mutsuki asks him to come back and promises to destroy every obstacle for him. When Kaneki refuses, Mutsuki slashes his cheek and then attacks Touka.
  • Tokyo Mew Mew features Quiche who attempts to murder Ichigo's boyfriend Masaya or Ichigo herself when she rejects him. He later changes this to wanting to be Together in Death with Ichigo if she doesn't go with him. It certainly doesn't help that he's a Stalker with a Crush and Ichigo's primary foe throughout the series, which only adds more fuel to the fire.
  • Vampire Game has Lassen, who fell for reincarnated vampire Lailis when they were kids. Since vampires retain their memories, Lailis was still devoted to her old love, and Lassen dealt with it by trying to become a cold-hearted ruler just like him, going further by crippling Lailis by cutting her hamstrings himself so she couldn't run away.
    • Also seen in Leene, who forces childhood friend and love interest Yuujel to attempt suicide with her, then years later tries to kill a girl who Yuujel might be interested in .
  • Vampire Hunter D:
  • Vampire Hunter D: Greco who is the town playboy and the mayors son, wants Doris, a beautiful farm girl, to be his. He says he is being very nice to her and wants to help her as a “friend” but is just saying this to get into her pants and believes he has a right to her. He cannot fathom why she is not attracted to him. When she refuses him he reveals to the townsfolk that she was bitten by a vampire, in the hopes that they will ostracize her. He says it is to protect the town but Dan (brother of Doris) rightly guesses the real reason he told everyone is due to him being spiteful over Doris rejecting him.
  • The Wallflower is about Sunako Nakahara, whose first love, in response to her confession told her "I don't like ugly girls". In response, she took to shunning light forever, hiding her face behind long black hair and devoting her life to horror, gore and darkness. Also, as a result of the rejection she also took to trying to murder people she's attracted to.
  • Warau Hyouteki: When Azusia and Yuzura were mere children, they were betrothed to each other by their parents. Many years later, after Azusia's mother mysteriously dies, Azusia returns to Yuzura with the intent of marrying him. Of course, Yuzura has a girlfriend, Satomi, and this doesn't sit to well with Azusia. Add to the fact that Azusia is anything but "normal", and she has no problem eliminating the competition by any means possible.
  • Welcome to the N.H.K.: Misaki somehow knows an awful lot about Satou, and she is very obsessed about making sure that he always attends her counseling every night. After he rejects her romantic advances, she attempts suicide.
  • Ryuuko and Haguro in 'Wolf Guy - Wolfen Crest'' in regards to Inugami. When Inugami makes it clear that he likes his teacher Aoshika and not her she falls into despair and informs Haguro (who also lusts after Inugami) where Inugami's feelings lie. When he finds out its Aoshika he sets out to gang rape her and try to kill her while telling her she's not good enough for Inugami, something which perhaps motivated Ryuuko to tell Haguro about Aoshika in the first place out of jealousy towards the poor woman. Also, when Haguro thinks Inugami has talked to Chiba when he was not around he gets jealous and he beats him half to death, bites out his tongue, defacates on him, and rapes him. While he's doing all this Haguro thinks about how this is all his form of punishment to Inugami.
    • Post Haguro's death, Ryuuko just lost her mind, wandering on the streets and selling her body in utter disbelief now that she lost Haguro and couldn't get Inugami to love her back.
  • In Wolf's Rain during a confrontation between the two, Jagara stabs Darcia with a poisoned dagger when he refuses her.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh!: In chapter 10 Ms. Chono was upset because she was rejected during a marriage interview. She apparently goes to marriage interviews so that she could reject every man she talks to.
  • Yuri Kuma Arashi: While Yurika certainly loved Reia, the latter did not feel the same. This led to Yurika eating Reia out of jealousy and possessiveness and later trying to do the same along with what looked like Attempted Rape to her daughter Kureha due to the Strong Family Resemblance.
  • Yuureitou: After Tetsuo (whom Marube lusts after) rejects him Marube's reaction ranges between cross dressing as his deceased wife, attempting to rape Taichi in order to break him and drive him away from Tetsuo, and finally giving into his insanity when Tetsuo rejects him one last time. He ends up dealing with it in his own twisted way by getting naked and sleeping with his dead wife's bones.
