* 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.

* 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.

* Every route in PrincessWaltz ends with this. [[spoiler: in the first half of the game, Chris sacrifices herself for Arata. And in the second half of the game, Arata and whichever partner you choose fall in love, but that girl ultimately steps out of the way so he can be with Chris after she is saved.]]

* {{Deconstructed}} in ''Fanfic/CandyForYourThoughts:'' [[ExtrovertedNerd Cody]] begins a relationship with [[WellExcuseMePrincess Courtney]], but realizes that she still has feelings for [[TroubledButCute Duncan]] and moves aside for them to reconcile. (See under "Western Animation" that this is a habit of his.) Duncan, meanwhile, gets manipulated by [[UnholyMatrimony Alejandro and Heather]] into voting Courtney off before she has the chance to tell him. During Cody's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Duncan, he has a revelation:

* Happens briefly in ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' when Dimitri decides to go back to Russia without the massive monetary reward offered to him for reuniting Anastasia and her grandmother because, as he says, "princesses don't marry kitchen boys." But of course, [[spoiler: he comes back when she gets her dumb ass in danger, and she goes and makes ''her'' beloved happy by renouncing her crown and eloping with him]].

-->'''Cody:''' If someone like her is willing to break down whatever lone wall of solitude that they've built up in order to give you a chance to be with them, you take it ''AND YOU DON'T LET GO!'' And...you don't let go. (''sigh'') I should have never let her go...
