* In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'' [[spoiler:Master Chief displays far more emotion as he and Cortana say their goodbyes than at any other point in the series.]] The reveal trailer for the next main installment seems to show further just how hard it him; [[spoiler:Chief is keeping Cortana's lifeless data crystal on a chain with his dog tags. Note that Chief did not bother doing anything similar even for fellow Spartans that have fallen in battle.]]

** And decades before that, his first wife died on the same day as his mother did. His late-wife's use of "Teddy" as a PetName for him is why he hated hearing it from anyone else.

* Wyatt Cain from ''Series/TinMan'' -- like his metallic counterpart in the literature section, he's arguably the best fighter in the party (though Glitch can be pretty scary if he sets his half a mind to doing so), but he's pretty much a broken man at the start, having endured ''eight years'' of being ForcedToWatch a holographic playback of his wife and son being tortured and drug away by the Sorceress's {{Mooks}}.

* The primary motivation for Max Rockotansky's adventures from the ''Film/MadMax'' series. After family to a bunch of bandits and later avenging their deaths at the end of the first film, Max became such an empty shell of man he simply traveled around with no real direction.

* The classic case is ''CyranoDeBergerac''; the titular big nosed master swordsman helps his rival and best friend get the girl.
* In ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', the Phantom, Erik, was one of these. One of the main examples comes at the end of Act I.
* ''MissSaigon'': Given that three years after being forced to abandon her in war-torn Vietnam, Chris is still having nightmares about Kim, he counts as this. His troubled marriage and Kim dying in his arms at the end of the show cinches it.

* Tragically, this can happen in real life situations. Humans in general can be very stoic and successful, but at the same time can be unfair and cruel. This trope can especially apply to people with mental issues like [[UsefulNotes/HighFunctioningAutism Autism]], UsefulNotes/AspergerSyndrome and ADHD, their feelings of being misunderstood are stronger than most people, though they seem quite normal, deep down they had to (or can) bury their problems to protect the "status quo". Luckily medicine can be given to them to help them get better. Not so luckily, it doesn't cure all, and it's all too easy to rack up a long list of neuroses before diagnosis or treatment starts. And even then, the feeling of dependence can make taking it depressing.

* ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'': Spider-Man lost Gwen Stacy to the Green Goblin. It's one of the most iconic moments in his history but damn, poor Peter. Meanwhile, in stories set in the future/{{Alternate Universe}}s/{{What If}}s, it’s common for his most famous love interest, Mary Jane Watson, to die or disappear. (Just see the page image with Spidey doing a CradleOfLoneliness on Mary Jane's headstone.)
* ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} from ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' has lost Jean ''twice''. He's often {{Misblamed}} for her loss the second time around.
