* Saki Konishi from ''Persona 4''. Initially seen as the girl of Yosuke's dreams, [[BitchInSheepsClothing Saki loathes him in actuality]], as well as Junes, the place where she works, since business there is ruining her own family's business. After witnessing a corpse and being interviewed on it, she herself ends up missing and is [[KilledOffForReal found]] [[WeHardlyKnewYe murdered]] the very next day. From this point on and despite the player learning little to nothing about her, her death serves as [[SacrificialLamb fuel]] for [[ItsPersonal Yosuke]] to go out and exact revenge on her murderer.

* {{Gender Flip}}ped ''twice'' in ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'', where the primary effect of [[spoiler:Gundam]]'s and [[spoiler:Nekomaru]]'s deaths is to motivate their female {{Love Interest}}s and give their story an element of romantic tragedy. [[spoiler:Gundam]]'s death also galvanizes the students as a whole to band together, similarly to [[spoiler:Sakura]]'s death in [[VisualNovel/DanganRonpa the first game]].


Added DiffLines:

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' plays with this. The first victim, Sayaka Maizono, fits the bill pretty well, having been a crush of Makoto's since middle school, an IdolSinger, and TheCutie in general, so her death is a pretty good motivational tool for him. Then, during the trial, it's revealed that [[spoiler:[[TheFakeCutie she was manipulating him]] [[BitchInSheepsClothing into taking the fall for her]] for when she killed someone, only to end up dead at her would-be victim's hands.]] While Makoto is still motivated by her death afterwards, it's tempered by learning the true circumstances behind it.

* ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' plays this completely straight, as [[spoiler:DecoyProtagonist Kaede Akamatsu]] gets killed in the first chapter so [[spoiler:the actual protagonist, Shuichi Saihara,]] has something to angst about for the rest of the game. Notably, they knew each other for less than two days, [[spoiler:and the BigBad implies that they were brainwashed into developing feelings for each other to invoke this trope.]]

* Subverted in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' with [[spoiler:Lelouch's mother Marianne. It looks like her death will be nothing more than a pretext for Lelouch to get revenge on his father, but really she's using another character as her SoulJar and [[EvilPlan has been cooperating with his father from the start!]]]]

** Ellie Bishop's new boyfriend Qasim fits this to a T, getting only three episodes spaced several weeks apart--one to establish that they're dating, one to kill him off, and one where she seeks revenge on his behalf, interspersed with flashbacks to tell their story. True to form, she seems completely over it already, despite the final flashback telling the viewer she would have accepted his proposal had he not died.
