* Barely averted in ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' by Ruka and invoked by Aporia. In this duel the hero's lives are connected to their life points and vice versa. When Ruka thinks her twin is dead she falls to her knees, clutching her heart, as her life points ebb away... (They get better.)

** WordOfGod confirms that Padme died due to having a damaged trachea from being choked by Vader and that the medbots were too incompetent to notice although the stress of childbirth and the aforementioned "everything she worked for crashing down around her" didn't help.

* ''VisualNovel/CorpseParty'' features [[TheCorruption The Darkening]], which takes over a person completely when they lose all hope. While they don't technically die, they're made into mindless slaves of the StringyHairedGhostGirl, and can never leave [[DarkWorld Heavenly Host]], so it's as good as death for them. Notably, this is arguably a ''better'' option than dying, as death causes your spirit to feel the pain you felt at death for all eternity.

* Seen in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' in episode "My House", when a patient whose husband had just passed was suffering from "Broken Heart Syndrome" (see Real Life examples of this trope), though she didn't die from it. This happens to lead to one of the show's all-time great {{Imagine Spot}}s: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVebMKT3uDs "Get me a box of kittens, STAT!"]]
