*** Similarly "When Tomorrow is This Morning Again" (sung by Candace and Doofenshmirtz) from the GrandFinale "Last Day of Summer". Part of the song resembles "Busted", with Doofenshmirtz taking the position of Vanessa.

* "So Far Apart" from ''MyLittlePony: [[http://www.hubworld.com/watch/610729115001 The Runaway Rainbow]]''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** "This Day Aria", from "A Canterlot Wedding, Part 2". Sung by Princess Cadance and [[spoiler: her impersonator, [[ShapeshiftingSeducer the Changeling Queen Chrysalis]]]]. It's unique for two reasons: It's a duet where both parts are sung by the same performer, who is playing different characters, one of which is impersonating the other.
** "It's Gonna Work" from "Spice Up Your Life". Doubles as a CounterpointDuet, as Rarity is with Coriander Cumin, singing about how the Tasty Treat should try to be more like the other restaurants in Canterlot's Restaurant Row, while Pinkie Pie is with Saffron Masala, singing about how they should embrace their individuality.
* "This Grill Is Not A Home" in ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', pictured above.



* The ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode, "Bully Bromance Break Up" had [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhmXLNXnAIM "Hole in My Heart",]] a BreakupSong between [[TheBully Buford]] and [[BollywoodNerd Baljeet.]]
** The episode "Act Your Age" has "What Might Have Been", a duet between Phineas and Isabella where they somberly sing about what it might have been like if they had gotten into a relationship together like they both wanted, and regretting not ever having done so.

* The song "Touch-a Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me" from ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' has Janet singing as she's seducing Rocky in the lab as well as Columbia and Magenta singing as well... while mocking Janet from inside a bedroom as they watch her on the security cameras.
* The song "Come Back To Me" from ''Theatre/OnAClearDayYouCanSeeForever''. Daisy is avoiding the psychiatrist so he tries to reach her telepathically. She begins hearing the words of the song coming from the mouths of her cooking class teacher, police officers, and other random strangers. (Does not happen in the stage show.)
* The second verse of "At The Opera Tonight" from ''Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera'' is a duet between the Repo Man and Blind Mag. The distance between them is not simply physical: while Mag sings about how she's made peace with her fate, Repo Man is raging and planning a bloodbath.
* All of John and Abigail Adams' duets in ''SeventeenSeventySix''. Especially fitting as the duets are based off their letters to each other.
* Lalita and Darcy share a Distant Duet that was cut from the movie ''Film/BrideAndPrejudice'' but can be seen on the DVD.
* Two in ''Film/TheMuppets'': Piggy (in her dressing room) and Mary (at a restaurant) in "Me Party", and then Gary (on the street) and Walter (in the Muppet Studios basement) for "Man or Muppet" (there's an ImagineSpot where they're together in the middle, but as far as the reality of the film is concerned, they're not).
* ''Film/AcrossTheUniverse'' has at least two. "Hey Jude" is sung by Max, who's sitting in an American bar, and citizens of Liverpool (including Jude's mother), all encouraging Jude to seek out his love Lucy. "Let It Be" (reworked in a gospel style) is one of the most [[TearJerker tearjerking]] moments in the film. It's set against the backdrop of the 1967 Detroit riot, with a young boy singing the first verse in the streets and a preacher/singer performing the second at the same boy's funeral. Though they're in the same room, they couldn't be further apart.
* Danny and Sandy in ''Film/{{Grease}}'' separately tell different versions of their summer nights together in the song, "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Summer Nights]]."

* ''Theatre/Finale'' has two: "More Than This," a duet between Tyler and Dylan about wanting to find love, sung from their respective homes, and "My Last Days," sung between Dani and Noah about their respective parents. Bonus points for the latter, as they didn't even know each other.

* In an episode of ''Series/{{The Flash|2014}}'', "Duet", when [[StarCrossedLovers Millie!Iris and Tommy]] tell their fathers that they are in love, the fathers tell them they belong to both mobs that oppose each other, but they care about their children and try to convince them to find their own true love. The fathers from both sides then go into a moving rendition of "More I Cannot Wish You" from ''Theatre/GuysAndDolls'', which is both SugarWiki/{{heartwarming|Moments}} and [[TearJerker heartbreaking]] at the same time.

* 2014's ''Peter Pan Live,'' a new version of [[Theatre/PeterPan the stage musical]], changed the (now-appropriately titled) "Distant Melody" to one of these. In the original, Peter Pan sings it as a lullaby at Wendy's request; in ''Live'', Wendy sings one half of the song in Neverland, while Mrs. Darling, still waiting for her children to come home, [[CounterpointDuet sings the other.]]

* SoundHorizon's "Shiseru Monotachi no Monogatari - Istoria" includes a duet between separated twins Elefseus and Artemisia, promising that they'll meet again one day.
* SimplePlan's "Jet Lag" is sung from the perspective of a couple who are separated by continents, to the point where he's waking up just as the sun is setting where she is. They have released four official versions of the song--the English version with Natasha Bedingfield, a French version with Marie-Mai, a mixed English/Chinese version with Kelly Cha, and a one with an Indonesian band. In all four music videos he is shown at the airport while she waits for him to come home.
