** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'': After 3 seasons of hard fighting, the Autobots finally defeat the Decepticons, destroy Megatron once and for all, and restore Cybertron to its former glory. However, this means they (except for [[TheSmartGuy Ratchet]], at least) now have to leave all of their Earth friends behind. (Though as [[SuddenlyVoiced Bumblebee]] points out, they can still Space Bridge back and forth at will.)
*** This is taken even further in the official GrandFinale movie ''Predacons Rising''. Unicron is sealed off in the All Spark vessel forever, and [[SixthRanger Knock]] [[HeelFaceTurn Out]] officially defects to the Autobots after they treat him fairly. However, the newly-reformed and resurrected Megatron [[TheAtoner goes into self-imposed exile to atone for his crimes]] (knowing he'd most likely be no longer welcome on Cybertron), and Optimus Prime [[HeroicSacrifice leaves to merge himself with Cybertron's core so that future generations of Cybertronians can come online.]] [[TearJerker And the fandom wept]].

* ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'' ends with the titular character's main friends, Fee and Foo, reunited with their parents, but having to move away from Little Bark. Harvey gets pretty saddened about them leaving, but he does know that he was lucky to be their friend. (Plus, they still get in contact with each other through mail letters.)
-->'''Irving:''' Sometimes people come into your life, and sometimes they have to leave.
-->'''Harvey:''' It's so sad.
-->'''Miriam:''' It ''is'' sad. But you're also really lucky you got to be their friend. Nothing's ever going to change that.
-->'''Irving:''' Yeah, you found each other. When a friend comes into your life, it changes you a little. They challenge you. They make you laugh. They make you stronger. Each person gives you a gift. A special part of them that you keep forever. It's like they're always with you.
** This becomes even ''worse'' when you realize that [[WhatCouldHaveBeen a third season would have been greenlit]] had it not been ScrewedByTheNetwork.
