* ''Film/TheConstantNymph'' surprisingly gives our antagonist depth by making he realize that she wants Lewis to be happy even if it means losing him forever.

** IIRC, in the TV adaptation of ''Literature/TheMistsOfAvalon'', Arthur's solution to this problem is a threesome.

** This is the central plot of the webcomic ''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace''. At one point, Arthur ''had'' banished Guenevere and Lancelot in the Space and Fairytale arcs, but at least partly because he thought they'd be happier without him. He was wrong.

* Troy, in the V.C. Andrews ''{{Casteel}}'' series, after finding out that he and Heaven (the protagonist) are uncle-and-niece (oh those wacky VCAndrews incestuous relationships), cuts off contact with her for her own good, [[spoiler:then inadvertently fakes his own death, then leaves Heaven alone for a while, believing he's dead, so she can date and marry Logan, then after a few years they get together for a last fling, during which Heaven's daughter is conceived]] and Heaven returns to live the rest of her life with Logan.

* In Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''The Rowan'', Designated Best Friend Afra Lyon pines away for the title character, only to wait too long and watch MartyStu Jeff Raven swoop in and claim her. (Though, being a powerful telepath, The Rowan knew that nearly all along, but doesn't want to ruin their friendship, admitting that she would've turned to Afra eventually.) Made creepier by the fact that Afra's loyalty is "rewarded" by hooking up with The Rowan and Jeff's ''youngest daughter, Damia''. (Does anyone know if Creator/StephenieMeyer has ever read [=McCaffrey=]?)

* In ''[[Literature/TheElenium The Tamuli]]'', Kalten manages to convince himself that Alean, the woman he's fallen in love with, loves his fellow knight [[CluelessChickMagnet Berit]] instead. Sparhawk has to force Kalten to promise not to try and get himself killed in battle to resolve the issue. (Sparhawk then tells Alean what was going on, and she tells Kalten off for being an idiot. It's implied that Kalten and Alean will marry as soon as they get back to Elenia.)

* Platonic cases recurring happen in the ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' anime, in which trainers release their Pokemon so they can achieve happiness elsewhere. Ash released his Butterfree so he could mate, as did Jessie her Dustox (the latter was an exceptional case since Dustox [[ConflictedLoyalty really didn't want to abandon Jessie]]). Cases are also recurrently attempted but refused due to the Pokemon's UndyingLoyalty, Ash's Pikachu, and Meowth, Wobbuffet and Inkay of Team Rocket were all given options to leave their trainer for brighter destinies but pointedly refused.

If ''Bob'' is the one who chooses to do this, this act of sacrifice may (paradoxically) be what causes Alice to [[ObliviousToLove notice his interest]] and/or decide [[SweetAndSourGrapes she wants to be with him after all]], thus rewarding his virtue. But even if she doesn't, Bob may still have a part in her love life, largely in the form of an "IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer" speech directed at her new paramour.

* TheMisanthrope gives you two for one. Philinte wants Éliante to be happy, and Éliante wants Alceste to be happy. Both are equally fine being the [[RomanticRunnerUp runner up]] to their beloved's preferred suitor.

* Viciously subverted with [[spoiler: Petyr Baelish]] in ''ASongOfIceAndFire''. While he didn't plan on [[spoiler: his beloved, Cat, getting killed, then resurrected as a merciless, grief-stricken zombie hell-bent on revenge]], he didn't seem to much care about her feelings over [[spoiler: the fate of her husband]]. While he'd prefer her to be happy, he mostly just wants ''her''.
* In the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, [[TheAtoner Nicci]] decides on this, both because her love was already fully in love with someone else before she met him, and because of her shame over [[HeelFaceTurn formerly]] being a villain. This becomes a source of particular anguish for her in the last three books, as several of the other characters begin [[ShipperOnDeck shipping]] them and encouraging her to be with him, leading her to repeatedly tell them that she is the RomanticRunnerUp [[TheAtoner Atoner]], ''not'' the pure-hearted love interest.
