* ''VideoGame/{{Rime}}'': The entire game is built upon this concept, as the game areas are explicitly named after the five stages and thematically linked to them. [[spoiler: This makes perfect sense, as the ending shows that the story is a tale the father spins in his head as a way of coping with his son's death.]]

* In the pilot episode to ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom,'' Frank and Len believe that Ruby is dying and each time they talk to her, they think that she is going through these stages.

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' did this with [[ManChild Richard]]'s issues concerning [[DisappearedDad his deadbeat biological father Frankie's abandonment]].
** He spent 42/33 years in '''denial''' about it as revealed in "The Man". In the same episode, his mother, Granny Jojo, is revealed to be [[DecemberDecemberRomance dating again]], prompting him to take most of his '''anger''' out on [[ParentWithNewParamour her new spouse]], Louie.
** Despite accepting Louie as a surrogate father, he refuses to let him marry his mother, setting up the '''bargaining''' stage in "The Signature", where Frankie returns to settle the issue but ends up stealing his son's home. After having a HeelRealization over leaving [[MoralityPet his precious child]], he changes his mind and gives back the house. In return, Richard welcomes him back into his life, still in the bargaining stage, but ends up unintentionally making their rekindled relationship worse throughout "The Outside".
** Finally, in "The Father", Frankie has an attack of guilt from The Vermin Man ceremony and excludes himself from the Wattersons out of remorse, causing Richard to go into '''depression''' from losing his father again. His kids try to cheer him up by having him and Frankie bond to make up for lost time, which only makes Richard lose his patience with his father's old habits and give up on him.
** However, Frankie makes it clear that he still loves his son no matter what and didn't want him to make the same mistakes he did, prompting Richard to finally '''accept''' that Frankie's abandonment made him a better parent and truly reconciles with him.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Finding Nemo}}'': As it is wonderfully explained in the video by SuperCarlinBrothers, Marlin goes through the five stages of grief when coming to terms with the death of most of his family and the abduction of his surviving son Nemo. First he acts as though he is fine and since he still has Nemo and that they are happy when in reality he is sheltering Nemo too much (denial), then he gets angry at Nemo for disobeying him and putting him in a situation where a worst case scenario could happen (anger). After Nemo is captured by the diver, Marlin tells himself that he will find Nemo and goes out to find him, allowing himself to put up with Dory and the dangerous situations they get into together. When Marlin and Dory get stuck inside the mouth of a whale, Marlin gives up hope and sinks to the bottom, defeated (depression). When the whale is about to blow, Marlin doesn’t want to let go of the tastebud that he’s holding onto because he believes that the whale will eat him and Dory, but she convinces him to let go and that just because something bad could happen doesn’t mean it will, and Marlin lets go, symbolizing him finally letting go of his grief (acceptance). This stage is later shown again twice; when Marlin accepts that Nemo is (presumably) dead, and when Marlin lets Nemo save Dory and the other fish, once again accepting that he cannot continue to hold onto his grief and live in fear over losing Nemo.

: ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'': Lightning [=McQueen=]'s CharacterDevelopment from selfish and arrogant to kind and outgoing is shown by him going though the five stages throughout the movie. When he gets lost in Radiator Springs, he immediately wanted to leave (denial), though he is sentenced to fix the road after causing damage the night before, which he completely resents and shows disdain for the residents at first (anger). He decides to face Doc Hudson, the town's judge, in a race at Willy's Butte to see if he can leave only to crash and lose (bargaining). He eventually learns of Doc's DarkAndTroubledPast where he lost his career for good, and realizes what he's acting like after Doc gives him an ArmorPiercingQuestion about caring about someone or something other than himself. When he is found by the press, he breaks down for the first time and is reluctant to leave the townsfolk (depression). During the race, when Chick Hicks forcefully makes The King crash on the last lap, he willingly gives up the Piston Cup and helps him cross the line, and turns down the Dinoco sponsorship, finally realizing what's more important in life and how good it is to have friends that can help him (acceptance).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheEmojiMovie'': Gene's mission to become normal is expressed through each of the five stages. First, he is upset over the fact he's a malfunction after destroying the text center (denial). He tells his parents he'll be normal and sets out to do so (anger), enlisting the help of Jailbreak to escort him to the Cloud where she can reprogram his code so he's a permanent Meh (bargaining). Eventually, she resists, telling Gene she likes him as he really is, causing him to undergo a HeroicBSOD and feel nothing but just "meh" without any reprogramming (depression). Finally, he regains his confidence and embraces his malfunction skills to help Alex text Addie his feelings, restoring Textopolis and being accepted by the emojis (acceptance).

* A side-story in {{Spider-Man}} (ComicBook/BrandNewDay era) dealt with [[JerkJock Flash]] [[CharacterDevelopment Thompson]] coping with the loss of his legs. When he becomes depressed, he goes through the stages in the opposite of the conventional order. He eventually arrives at what Peter terms "stage 0: grace".

** Creator/TessMasazza goes through a variation of this trope in an [[ValentinesDayEpisodes episode]] of the Italian Web Series ''Insopportabilmente donna'' when she spends Valentine's Day alone as a single woman. Emphasis is placed on anger. A lot of anger!
