* John Carter's last words at the very end in ''[[Literature/JohnCarterOfMars Gods of Mars]]'' qualified as this, after seeing his wife being locked up inside a inescapable temple with a angry enemy ready to lunge at her with a knife in hand.
-->''"Go," I urged them. "Let me die here beside my Princess--there is no hope or happiness elsewhere for me. When they carry her dear body from that terrible place a year hence [[TogetherInDeath let them find the body of her lord awaiting her]]."''

-->'''Andrew Knightley''': You need help, Gary.
-->'''Gary King''': [[spoiler: I ''got'' help. You know what "help" was? Help was a lot of people sitting in a circle talking about how ''fuckin' awful'' things had got. That is not my idea of a good time]].
-->'''Andrew Knightly''': And this is?!
-->'''Gary King''': They told me when to go to bed! ME!

* Subaru from ''LightNovel/ReZeroKaraHajimeruIsekaiSeikatsu'' has an extremely long one. After failing multiple times to stop the Witch Cult from slaughtering everyone in Roswaal's territory, including his closest friends, Subaru gives up on saving them and chooses to run away instead. Rem tries to convince him of not giving up, only to provoke Subaru into invoking this trope. Doubles as an HeroicSelfDeprecation.

* In the last issue of ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Nico is given a choice of either signing up with Hunter Stein or taking the team to go out and look for Chase, who abandoned them. She chooses the latter, at which point Klara begs her to reconsider, pointing out that they have no money, no home, no allies, and no assurance that they'll ever find Chase (or that he'll agree to rejoin them if they do.)

-->Connie: (sobbing) "Fine schnook I've been!"
-->She hands the wall paper to Mr. Boynton.

* ''Theatre/TheMerchantOfVenice'' opens with a scene which may be intended as a parody of this trope, in which Antonio speaks repeatedly about his own sadness and frustration without any obvious cause, much to the bemusement of his friends.
-->In sooth, I know not why I am so sad:\\
It wearies me; you say it wearies you;\\
But how I caught it, found it, or came by it,\\
What stuff 'tis made of, whereof it is born,\\
I am to learn;\\
And such a want-wit sadness makes of me,\\
That I have much ado to know myself.
