* A rare female example in ''Film/ThePelicanBrief''. Creator/JuliaRoberts' character, who is the main character, and DenzelWashington's character was suppose to get together and was even scripted to have a lovemaking scene. However, UnfortunateImplications from the fan base of both actors caused the script to get rewritten where they part as close friends by the end of the film.

A rare case where TheProtagonist-- who is clearly not [[CelibateHero celibate]] -- ''doesn't'' end up with the LoveInterest. 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.

* In ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', Steven teases Wallace, knowing that the real reason that the Water-type trainer stepped down from being the Champion to become a Gym Leader was for an excuse to spend more time with Winona. Too bad that is one of the reasons that is implied why they broke up. (The main reason was that Winona felt uncomfortable having someone stronger than her for a boyfriend.)

* Punpun spends the entirety of ''Manga/OyasumiPunpun'' pining after his first love, Aiko. They eventually meet again and begin dating in his twenties however their relationship is unhealthy and the circumstances aren't perfect. [[spoiler:For one they're on the run from the police for killing Aiko's mother.]] It ultimately ends very poorly as [[spoiler:Aiko ends up [[DrivenToSuicide killing herself]]. Punpun tries to too but survives, though he loses an eye.]]

* The original ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian1981'' film has Conan gain wealth, vengeance, and the favor of a king... but in doing so he lost Valeria, his love. Even the epilogue, showing him as a king in the distant future, reveals he is still alone.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Katamari}}'' (a comic based on ''VideoGame/KatamariDamacy'') had a story arc revolve around the Prince of Cosmos helping a man try to regain his girlfriend by rolling up a katamari of all the thing she likes as a show of affection. However when presented it to, she shows she flattered by the gesture but let's him down gently that she isn't interested in pursuing the relationship.

* While the ending of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}: Innocent Sin'' is an example of [[BittersweetEnding that other trope]], ''Eternal Punishment'' plays this straight as [[spoiler: Tatsuya ends up returning to the Other Side, and if Maya ever gets involved with This Side's Tatsuya there'd be a risk of screwing over the world again, so seeing him or his brother isn't really an option either. The ending movie has Maya accepting this and walking by Tatsuya without saying anything]]. In fact, this is built into the title of the games; this is Tatsuya's "Eternal Punishment" for the "Innocent Sin" that he commented during the first game.
