* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': Invokes this one hard. Summoners make a pilgrimage across Spira to gather Aeons and prepare for a battle against the world-destroying entity Sin, accompanied by their closest friends as Guardians. This gives the world a period of Calm before Sin inevitably comes back and the process has to start again with another Summoner. Everyone but Tidus knows that the Summoner ''always'' dies at the end of their pilgrimage while facing Sin. Worse, Lady Yunalesca lays out the way to do it - the Summoner must make a HumanSacrifice of one of their Guardians to make an Aeon. And ''even'' worse, that new Aeon will become the next Sin. But leave it to Tidus to ask all the wrong questions, Yuna to refuse that option, and [[MagnificentBastard Auron]] to engineer the ''perfect'' circumstances to make ScrewDestiny a valid option. [[spoiler: The fact that Tidus's estranged father is the current Sin also makes the final BossBattle this trope.]]

* StarWarsExpandedUniverse - This seems to be a rite of passage for Sith. Jedi avoid any deep attachments, part to avoid this trope. Sith are encouraged to embrace their passions, but LoveIsAWeakness as it leads to mercy, and there can be no weaknesses for an enemy to exploit or impediments to one's destiny. One of the more tragic cases was where [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic Darth Malgus]] became fond enough of his Twi'lek SexSlave to make her his common-law wife. The two of them [[BattleCouple fought side by side]] at the sacking of the Jedi temple, but she was injured in the fighting while protecting him. Another Sith mocked Malgus for his affection, stating that she was a weakness that could be used against him. Malgus ''agreed'' and murdered his "wife" in her sickbed. Of course, since he was a high-ranking Sith, and she was just a Twi'lek SexSlave, no one in the Empire cared.

* The ending to ''MillionDollarBaby''. The film's star boxer has suffered a career-ending injury, is paralyzed below the neck, has no hope of recovery beyond being immobile for the rest of her life, and because she is no longer able to pursue her dream of being a boxer, she wants to die, but cannot kill herself due to her injuries. Her manager, who has during the course of the movie become like a father to her, later makes the painful decision to cut off her life support and give her a massive dose of tranquilizers to avert her prolonged suffering.

* In ''Literature/TheSagaOfLartenCrepsley'', near the end of the series, the protagonist killed his vampire brother, Wester. Although it is obvious Larten still cared deeply for his brother, Wester had betrayed Larten by killing his human wife and blaming the vampaneze. Wester hoped that he could use Larten, who had considerably more authority in the vampire society, to start a war between the vampires and the vampaneze.

** Once you've got Dean messing around with an ArtifactOfDoom called the ''Mark of Cain'', of course the characters have every reason to fear that Sam may have to kill Dean to prevent the evil-inducing effects of the Mark, or that this induced evil itself might make Dean kill Sam.
