*Subverted in the third of the ''Fanfic/Gensokyo20XX'' series, as she doesn't actually die but, when she leaves without telling anyone, the others assume Yukari left to starve and subsequently die alone.

* In ''Series/BetterCallSaul'' Jimmy's brother Chuck commits an unforgivable offense against him. Chuck claims he did it for Jimmy's own good. Jimmy's cold response is that Chuck, who is mentally ill and only has his brother to look after him, is eventually going to be overwhelmed by his illness and die alone. His prediction is proven correct at the end of season.

** Pycelle in season 6. Qyburn (the one who has him killed) says he wished this could have happened in better circumstances. This happens to Lancel Lannister and Tommen Baratheon in the same episode. Lancel, paralyzed by a stab wound and alone in the tunnels beneath King's Landing, futilely tries to stop the wildfire from going off, and is its first victim. Tommen, staring at the still burning ruins of the Great Sept, is alone when he takes off his crown and calmly steps through the open window.

The "Inside the Episode" segment even notes that if Cersei had been present to console him over becoming a widower, rather than doing other things like torturing Septa Unella, he may not have taken his own life.

* Alt-country music artist Rodney Crowell, in one of his mainstream hits "Many a Long and Lonesome Highway" from January 1990, muses about the distant relationship he had with his father, using the line "Though I was there, he died alone" metaphorically:
--> ''My father, on his death bed told me''\\
''There's really nothin' left to hold me''\\
''Though I was there, he died alone''\\

* "I am just going outside and may be some time." Capt. Lawrence Oates, in a message to R. F. Scott during the return journey of the ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition to the South Pole. Oates felt his injury was delaying his team mates and so walked out into an Antarctic blizzard and was never seen again. [[SenselessSacrifice The rest of his team died anyway.]] But then again, they would have died ''anyway'' anyway even with him, so it was still very brave.

* In ''Anime/{{Gundam 00}}'', what makes the death of Saji's older sister, HotScoop Kinue Crossroads [[TearJerker even sadder than it already is]] is that she bleeds to death completely alone in an alley, attempting to use a broken cellphone to call for help, weakly calling out to her loved ones with her dying breath. Also, the first Lockon Stratos, Neil Dylandy died alone... InSpace.

* The entire point of ''FragileDreams'' is for the main character, Seto, to avert this trope and find someone else just to talk to. He prevents several characters from falling to this fate like [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot P.F, Crow]] and Chiyo and then finds the mysterious girl, Ren, thus averting this trope... until older, and possibly dead Seto mentions that something happened after many summers together and she's not there anymore, leaving him to die alone.

* Luke Skywalker himself in ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/TheLastJedi''. As he exiled himself to a different planet, he managed to astrally project himself all the way to Crait to make amends with Leia and face down his nephew Kylo Ren. The strain of it all, combined with his age, led to him becoming one with the Force once the projection ended.
