* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': After [[spoiler:unintentionally beating a fellow pilot up]], Asuka tries to push Shinji away and force him to break up with her because she's afraid of hurting him. It doesn't work.
-->'''Asuka:''' Please, leave. Just leave. I don't want to hurt you anymore.\\
'''Shinji:''' I'm not going to leave.\\
'''Asuka:''' Then I'm just going to keep kicking you.\\
'''Shinji:''' I am not going to leave! I don't care how much you hurt me. Break every bone in my body if it makes you happy, but I am not going to leave you!\\
'''Asuka:''' But...\\
'''Shinji:''' Why can't you understand? I want to be there when you need me!\\
'''Asuka:''' I don't need you! I don't want to need you!\\
'''Shinji:''' But I need you! And I want to be with you forever!\\
'''Asuka:''' You what? Why?\\
'''Shinji:''' You told me that if I couldn't live for myself, then I should live for those around me. I I can't live for myself, Asuka. So I'll live for someone else instead. I'll live for you."

* Kanon tries this in the second arc of ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''. He does this to spare Jessica heartbreak from loving someone who can't love her back. After all, [[CatchPhrase he is furniture]]. [[spoiler:Considering how it's revealed later on that there's something ''very'' wrong with Kanon physically due to injuries from being thrown off a cliff, he's probably justified in doing this.]]
