** This is further expored in Volume 5 when Ruby mentions Blake's name, sending Yang into a furor before she sobs to Weiss about her, implying that [[spoiler:whatever damage Adam did to Yang, it was a ''lot'' worse with Blake's disappearance.]]

* By the fourth book of ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', Rand has three love interests. He is the ChosenOne in a CrapsackWorld. He does not handle being the chosen one well in general, and what would happen to his love interests if his enemies find out about them is one of his many worries. The three of them handle it with varying levels of grace, but they're considering the possibility of polygamy. It helps that one of them is from a culture where that is acceptable.

* Literature/HarryPotter gives Ginny this speech in ''The Half-Blood Prince'', right after they get together. Ginny doesn't buy it for a second. Rather than react with surprise or tears, she says she understands what he's doing and patiently lets him get on with it. Her later actions in ''Deathly Hallows'' indicate that, as far as she's concerned, they're still a couple. Harry, amusingly, has absolutely no way of dealing with this and gives in, causing Ron to give Harry the IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer speech when he has trouble letting go. Of course, it's not as though Ginny isn't fighting Voldemort almost as hard as Harry himself.

* Subverted in ''Comicbook/{{Generations|MarvelComics}}'' #3: After rescuing Amiko from Comicbook/Sabretooth, [[Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} Logan]] tells Laura this is why he can't be in her life when she chides him for not spending a night with his daughter. Laura immediately points out that not being in Amiko's life made no difference, and Creed targeted her ''anyway''.

Usually unnecessary if the {{Love Interest|s}} is [[ActionGirl a badass]] [[BattleCouple too]]. Compare IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy and HeroHarassesHelpers. A sub-trope of ItsNotYouItsMe and CelibateHero. May overlap with LovedINotHonorMore. May lead to GoodIsNotNice. Often the rationale behind passing the LeaveYourQuestTest. When the love interest is the one who breaks things off for this reason, that's LoveCannotOvercome.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': After the events of the first SeasonFinale ([[spoiler:a spaceship crashes into the town, and Lapis Lazuli performs a HeroicSacrifice to prevent Steven and the Gems from being harmed]]), Steven contemplates doing this with his friend Connie, but ultimately cannot bring himself to do so and tells her the truth. He tried to end their friendship with a ''text message'' but when Connie demanded that he say it to her face, he ultimately couldn't.

LoveHurts. Add {{Genre Savv|y}}iness and the SortingAlgorithmOfMortality, and it's just plain unbearable. TheHero has a ready and willing {{Love Interest|s}} who makes him happy, who would be good for him, who [[OneTruePairing even the fans want to see him with]]. No LoveTriangle, no MayflyDecemberRomance, no VirginPower, no TwiceShy--things could be perfect. It's plain as day that he cares more about her than anything else...plain to everyone, including the BigBad. TheHero knows that his enemies will never let him have a love life in peace; they'll [[AndYourLittleDogToo strike down the people dearest to him]] first chance they get. The only way to protect his beloved from becoming BigBad cannon fodder is by letting her go. Despite what a noble, selfless move it is, the spurned Love Interest's reaction will usually be, "Screw the danger! I don't care!", to show [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan they love]] TheHero just as much.

* [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skywalker]] goes through a rare variation of this. In the ExpandedUniverse his various love interests have [[DisposableLoveInterest bad things happening to them]]. He eventually concluded that the time he dabbled in TheDarkSide caused this and he had to protect [[OfficialCouple Mara Jade]] from it (it was about as necessary as you'd think). Only [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther proving his love for her]] by doing that.
