* In ''Midnight Macabre,'' Gaspar and Natalie are friendly after their divorce. This is probably because they were friends even before they dated; Gaspar's friend Art, however, thinks it's because [[ShownTheirWork Texas didn't have alimony laws at the time the comic takes place]].

Added DiffLines:

* The ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' fic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10466945/1 Deep Purple]] deconstructs this trope with Riki and Rin. While the two of them were able to reconcile and get back on friendly terms after breaking up, it doesn't change the fact that they did break up and that it added a layer of awkwardness to their relationship. They used to be close childhood friends, but their breakup made it impossible for them to be as close as they used to be before they dated each other.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/NightInTheWoods'', you find out that Mae briefly dated Cole in high school, but their prom date was a disaster of epic proportions. (It involved her biting him so hard he bled while trying to kiss him, and [[ItMakesSenseInContext him nearly choking to death on paper towels while she vomited in the sink]].) Mae is understandably anxious about seeing him at a party, but it appears Cole would like to try for this trope with her -- he doesn't bring up what happened, and acts warmly towards her when he sees her. Unfortunately, Mae is raging drunk, and begins publicly ranting at him. (And then ''he'' apologizes for upsetting her, possibly in hopes of calming her down.) The whole thing ends with Mae puking and swiftly being brought home by Bea, leaving a very confused (and sober) Cole.
