** The final two episodes of Series 9 are basically all about this trope from the Doctor's perspective after the sudden and senseless death of [[spoiler: Clara Oswald]]. Made even sadder - and taken in a different direction - when the Doctor [[spoiler: is forced to erase most of his memories of Clara]].

* Roy Revant, the aloof adoptive father of the title character of ''SoltyRei'' frantically pleaded for his little girl to not go through with the suicidal HeroicSacrifice to save the planet, even going as far as telling her that he would take her to the amusement park like any father would his daughter. She simply smiles with tears in her eyes, and says that she's happy to have been his daughter, and bravely steps into the shuttle to her doom. [[spoiler:Some time later, he goes up and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming finds her]]]].

* At the end of Meakashi-hen, one of the most gruesome arcs of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', the VN includes a flashback to a scene that would have occurred if Shion had [[spoiler:remembered her promise to Satoshi]], in which she serves as [[spoiler:an older sister figure to Satoko]]. Sadly, this scene occurs only after [[spoiler:Shion murdered Satoko gruesomely and herself fell off a building to her death]]. It takes until Minagoroshi-hen for the relationship pictured to actually develop in one of the alternate universes (although in Matsuri, Tsukiotoshi-hen also appears to take this trajectory).

* In HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi's Meakashi-hen, a variation on this was done. Just before Shion [[spoiler:commits suicide after killing most of her friends]], she realizes that she CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot if rather than focusing on [[spoiler:getting revenge for Satoshi's disappearance]], she had focused instead on following Satoshi's request to take care of Satoko. After she [[spoiler:kills herself]], the audience is treated to a brief scene of Shion joining the game club and taking care of Satoko in such an alternate future that was never allowed to happen that arc.

* Kaori with [[IllGirl Shiori]] in ''{{Kanon}}''. Kaori can't bear to be close to her terminally ill sister and pretends like her sister doesn't exist, so she can stay emotionally distant. This causes Shiori [[DrivenToSuicide much anguish]] for years. Only when Shiori has very little time left does Kaori's composure crack and she tries to be the big sister she should have been all along. [[spoiler: Fortunately, Ayu's miracle gives them much more time to spend as a family, thankfully averting this trope at the end of it all]].
