** This is [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in Volume 4 when Blake panics over Sun getting badly injured, Sun calls her out over doing this:
--->'''Sun:''' You think you're being selfless, but you're not. Yeah, that chameleon friend of yours got me pretty good, [[ThePowerOfFriendship but I'd do it all again if it meant protecting you]]. And I could promise Yang would say the same. You get to make your own choices, sure. But you don't get to make ours. When your friends fight for you, [[TrueCompanions it's because we want to]]. So STOP pushing us out! [[YouAreNotAlone It hurts more than anything the bad guys could ever do to us]].

* ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soul Calibur]]'': Kilik knows that his longtime traveling companion Xianghua has romantic feelings for him, but his quest to destroy Soul Edge prevents him from wanting to get too close to her (Kilik's first love [[spoiler: and Xianghua's long-lost older sister]] Xianglian was killed by him while he was under possession of the Evil Seed). In Xianghua's ''SCIV'' ending, [[spoiler:he explicitly tells this to her as he grabs hold of the cursed sword. [[TakingYouWithMe She's not listening,]] [[TogetherInDeath no matter what.]]]] [spoiler: The official Soul Calibur V artbook revealed that they had an illegitimate child, Xiba, together.]]

** Non-romantic variant: When Superman first met Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} back in the Silver Age, she wanted to live with him, but he sent her to an orphanage because he was afraid that his enemies would target her if they found out about his cousin (he was proved right in the Post-Crisis universe: as soon as Kara arrived on Earth, super-villains began attacking her and Comicbook/{{Darkseid}} kidnapped her).

* ''Series/PennyDreadful'': Vanessa essentially uses this excuse to break off an impending CoitusEnsues moment with Ethan. In this case, the enemy is as much [[spoiler: Satan]] as [[{{EnemyWithin}} herself]], as sex is one way of triggering her ApocalypseMaiden status.

* Terry [=McGinnis=] of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' gives his longtime girlfriend Dana Tan this speech in the FullyAbsorbedFinale episode "Epilogue" of ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. However, the scene appears to be a hypothetical one imagined by Terry rather than actually happening; at the end of the episode [[spoiler:he calls Dana to confirm a date they've scheduled, and is clearly planning to propose]].

* For decades, this was used as one of the reasons that Franchise/{{Superman}} couldn't marry ComicBook/LoisLane. Of course, she was publicly known as "Superman's Girlfriend", she had an [[TooDumbToLive almost suicidal capacity for putting herself in danger]], and he probably spent as much time at the Daily Planet as Superman as he did as Clark.
** The storyline ''Superman: Ending Battle'' featured Manchester Black learning Clark's secret. To get his revenge on Superman, he uses his mental powers to command ''every villain in the whole world'' to kill anyone who has ''ever'' shown Clark Kent one iota of kindness. The hit-list includes ComicBook/LexLuthor, the Daily Planet staff, his parents, his ''first grade teacher'', his old football coach...
*** Lex is informed of who Superman is as well; he finds the whole thing hilarious and plans to sit back and relax while Superman spends the rest of the day fighting and panicking. Come nightfall, Lex sits down to his computer deciding its time to destroy the Man of Steel utterly...just in time, of course, for Manchester Black to have a change of heart and [[StatusQuoIsGod wipe the knowledge clean again]].

* A platonic version occurs at the end of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' season three. [[spoiler:In the penultimate episode, Blake has a violent encounter with Adam, who is enraged that she's left the [[WesternTerrorists White Fang]] and gotten out from under his thumb. He not only stabs her, but promises to [[IfICantHaveYou "destroy everything you love,"]] and gets started by [[AnArmAndALeg lopping off Yang's arm]] when she tries to rescue Blake. In the season's denouement, we learn that Blake has run off on Yang and the rest of Team RWBY, presumably due to this trope. [[TearJerker Not that Yang knows this, leaving her feeling terribly betrayed after losing so much while trying to save her friend.]]]]

** It might make more sense to argue that ''he'' should worry about ''her'' enemies (though maybe not, given his impressive track record at taking on and beating superpowered foes).
