* During a flashback in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''', [[spoiler: Princess Arika's]] final thoughts were of their love for [[spoiler:Nagi]] (since no one else was present to hear her speak while she fell to certain doom). [[spoiler: Subverted, when Nagi saves her and coaxes an actual confession out of her. Then again, her survival was a ForegoneConclusion since she's Negi's mother.]]

* Technically, she doesn't die, but the effect is still the same as [[spoiler:Ixpellia]] from ''[[AudioAdaptation StrikerS Sound Stage X]]'' of the ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' franchise tells Subaru that she loves her as she rests in Subaru's arms and falls into a [[ConvenientComa deep sleep that would last for ten years... or a thousand]].

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': [[spoiler: In chapter 437, Hinata goes to help Naruto against Pain. When he says that she can't possibly win and asks why she's there, she responds that Naruto changed her life and that as a result, she's not afraid to die protecting him [[AnguishedDeclarationOfLove because she loves him]]. Pain quickly defeats and stabs her, and while this initially seems to be playing the trope straight, she survives with Sakura's help. The current world war is currently occupying their attention, so Naruto hasn't fully responded to her... [[Film/Naruto7TheLast Until later]] when he does respond and he also reciprocates her feelings.]]

* In ''LastNightOnEarth'', the GM can invoke this, if two characters are in the same room and he has the card, he can force them to skip a turn. Often leads to SexEqualsDeath, as that makes it easy to surround them with zombies so they can't escape.

* Subverted in Percy Jackson and the last olympian (the 5th and last Percy Jackson novel before the spin-offs), when dying [[spoiler: Luke Castellan]] asks Annabeth if she ever loved him...Annabeth says "There was a time...When maybe, I- I thought, perhaps..." But then she back tracks and said he was like a brother to her and she cared about him, but she never loved him. She cries at his death, though, which could suggest otherwise.
** One cries for one's brother. While at first reading Annabeth's honesty seems cruel it may in fact be exactly what [[spoiler: Luke]] wants to hear - that he hasn't broken his 'little sister's' heart.
