Frequently turns up in the first episode/book of a series, with the implication that the detective's sense of betrayal or loss is what hardens him and forms him into the character we come to know. (Details vary: he might become a commitment-phobic womanizer, a [[CelibateHero celibate]] justice machine, a StrawMisogynist, or just an all-around [[DeadpanSnarker cynic]], but in any case it's all because of ''her''.)

** This happens a lot with one-shot relationships for Batman. If Bruce Wayne is dating someone who isn't a main character, and it seems serious, she's either a villain or she's going to get [[WomenInRefrigerators fridged.]] The villain from ''Gotham After Midnight'' actually made herself a potential victim, seduced Batman, and then fake-fridged herself.

* Franchise/{{Batman}} repeatedly falls for [[DatingCatwoman Catwoman]]. And he's with Talia, the daughter of Ra's Al Ghul. It's pretty obvious it's not going to work out.

* ''OutlawStar'' had one TearJerker of an example, which is impressive, since it was also a PuppyLove. A girl Jim meets and falls for turns out to be the pilot of the ship sent to kill them - but neither ever realizes the other's identity, and both go into combat looking forward to their date. After the fight, Jim doesn't know why she didn't come...
