* In ''VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}}'', this happens during Kotomi's childhood when it comes to her parents, in a rather mixed up manner: When her parents said they had to go on a business trip, she jumped straight into Anger, accusing them as liars for not wanting to come to her birthday party. Then she got a visit by a strange man who hinted that her parents died in a plane crash, leading her into Denial, shooing off the man and coming to believe that he's a bully/bad guy. She went right into Bargaining, begging to God that she'll study hard, be a good girl and try to decipher what her parents were researching if He'll bring back her parents. But when her parents' deaths reached the news program in TV, she eventually sunk into Depression, burning down a research paper ([[spoiler:actually a catalogue for Teddy Bears to buy for her birthday present]]) and crying out loud, not even caring that she accidentally burnt the whole room and only saved by Tomoya and the previously strange man she considered bully. Somewhat she came to the phase of 'Acceptance' when she makes good of her Bargaining to God by becoming a genius girl who does off-school research, in her mind, to 'atone' for the incident, but her ''real'' Acceptance phase is when eventually she befriended Tomoya and then eventually the strange man found the suitcase of her parents containing a birthday letter and her teddy bear that they stuffed in their suitcase before they die, finally allowing Kotomi to be at peace and move on.

* ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' is a study of the stages by way of AnthropomorphicPersonification. After 11-year-old Riley leaves all her friends and familiar surroundings and moves across the country, her Joy attempts to keep her cheerful, preventing her Sadness from dwelling on the old memories and tainting them (denial). In the process, the memories are rendered inaccessible, the parts of Riley's personality they power become nonfunctional, and Joy and Sadness become lost in Riley's mind. Without Sadness to provide appropriate responses to her new surroundings, Riley's Anger takes over. He plants the idea to run away to Minnesota, where she was happy (bargaining), and depression sets in and prevents the emotions from changing her course -- except for Sadness, whose return reminds Riley that abandoning her family would make her feel worse. Viewing her previously Joyful memories through a Sad lens allows Riley to Accept her new circumstances.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'', where Vince realizes his older brother Chad is a {{Geek}}, has one reference to this, right after Vince is told of the fact, by Gretchen stating "Stage one: denial." But the other stages [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory can be seen as well]]: where Vince runs from the kitchen table after listening to Chad [[SpockSpeak speak geek]], where Vince confronts Chad and tries to reason why he can't be a geek, where Vince despairs over whether he will become a geek like Chad, and where Vince realizes that Chad has his {{Badass}} moments too.

* The infamous {{Tearjerker}} episode "Cookie Chomper III" from ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' has all three chipmunks going through various stages after their newly adopted kitten is killed by a car. Theodore goes through denial, actively searching for their kitten and thinking that a different one was killed. Alvin goes through anger, [[ItMakesSenseInContext putting all the houseplants outside because they'll eventually die too]]. Simon goes through depression, just sad over the kitten's death.
