* [[spoiler:Scion]] of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' is in mourning for [[spoiler:Eden]] for most of the story, spending much of it in Denial as he believes all is not lost. After discovering her corpse he descends into full-blown Anger only for his enemies to use her memory to drive him into [[DespiarEventHorizon Depression]] and kill him before he can learn to cope with the loss.

* In the ''[[ComicStrip/BloomCounty Opus]]'' strip [[http://www.salon.com/2008/06/29/opus_53/ seen here]], the five stages are applied not to tragedy, but to having to "go green" and use a hybrid car; Steve makes it to "Acceptance", but shifts back to "Anger" quickly. However, in [[http://www.salon.com/2008/07/06/opus_54/ the next week's strip]], Steve manages to achieve the "rare sixth and final stage", "Smug Satisfaction".

*** Acceptance: Clara reaches this point. The Doctor doesn't, and since he's promptly sent off to a lonely torture chamber where he has no one to help him through his loss, he ultimately spends the next [[spoiler: 4.5 ''billion'' years]] cycling through Anger, Denial, Depression and ultimately a ''very'' dangerous form of Bargaining in the two episodes that follow, "Heaven Sent" and "Hell Bent". He becomes willing to risk the safety of the entire universe over the chance to [[spoiler: bring her back from the dead]]. He finally has a HeelRealization and reaches the stage of Acceptance; tragically, because he is so psychologically damaged, being able to function as a hero again requires him to not only lose [[spoiler: his beloved Clara]], but also [[spoiler: memories of the things that made him love her in the first place]]. (Poor guy...)

* ''Webcomic/NeglectedMarioCharacters'' [[http://www.smbhq.com/nc/nsdos9.html did this]] during the SuperSmashStadium crossover as Fred coped with his (mistaken) belief that he ate his best friend, Bill, with Donez rattling off the stages. He threw in "Flatulence" as stage four just to mess with Fred.
