A rare case where TheProtagonist-- who is clearly not [[CelibateHero celibate]] -- ''doesn't'' end up with the romantic female lead. Someone else wins her heart or she has no choice but to marry someone to save her family or something. For whatever reason the hero ends the story alone. It can be played either for comedy or tragedy. It isn't always a DownerEnding, but it sure does tend to be that way.

* ''Film/AFewGoodMen''. Once the case is over, TomCruise and Creator/DemiMoore don't get together. They just leave. This aspect of the film could be considered a subversion of the typical movie conventions of protagonists always getting with the heroine regardless of their relationship working out in reality. In the case of this film, the pair were only brought together due to the legal case the plot follows. Though they had chemistry, it is noted that they have no grounds for a dedicated relationship once the trial is over.

* In ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops'', Sun Wukong joins the looping crew only to find that Blake Belladonna, the girl he was crushing on, has been dating Yang Xiao Long for quite some time and the two are, in fact, recently engaged. Unusually for this trope, everyone is aware of the situation and somewhat sympathetic, attempting to help him move on.
