[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Cue a rather bizarre sense of a loss]] and perhaps suddenly feeling [[SympathyForTheHero more sympathetic towards the hero]] than ever before. This may just be the villain realizing that he will never have the opportunity to [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou personally destroy the hero]], but occasionally the villain might even seem to [[FriendlyEnemy genuinely miss him]], wonder [[NowWhat what he'll do now]] that the conflict is over, and/or feel that [[WorthyOpponent a fallen foe]] [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead deserves respect on general principles]]. Luckily, the hero may well turn up alive somewhere else, and the mourning will quickly be dismissed as things return to [[StatusQuoIsGod status quo.]] Also a common cause/symptom of FoeYay.
