** ''{{Gungnir}}'' zigzags the trope much in the same manner as ''Riviera'', but ultimately averts it [[DarkerAndEdgier against all odds]]: despite the huge, dramatic battle between Julio and [[MoreThanMindControl Ragnus]], Julio doesn't kill his brother at the end of it, and after a lot of [[WasItAllALie yelling at the party]], Ragnus gets up and walks away.

* 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.

** Not done for the usual reasons but when Tyrion encounters Shae in his father's bed chambers, Shae is strangled to death by Tyrion in self-defense after she pulls a knife on him. Afterwards, he apologizes to her corpse and admits to his father that he still loved her.

** And in the [[TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld sequel]], the last two boss battles are [[spoiler:Emil VS Richter, in which Emil has always [[HoYay idolized]] Richter and looks exactly like Richter's dead best friend]], then [[spoiler:Emil VS his crush Marta and friend Lloyd]], which is also a very effective and unexpected PlayerPunch since [[spoiler:Marta was the only other permanent member of your party for the entire game, and Lloyd is the hero of the first game]].

* In Creator/RichardWagner's "Ring", Wotan does this to his son Siegmund in ''Die Walküre'' and Brünhild to Siegfried in ''Götterdämmerung'', although the actual killing is done by Hunding in the first case, and by Hagen in the second.

** Can be done in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. [[spoiler: Lucina goes to kill the Avatar when she realizes that the Avatar will soon kill Chrom (her father). If the Avatar is Lucina's Mother or Husband, the scene gets [[TearJerker very emotional.]]]]

* ''Film/MonsieurVerdoux'': Implied. There is something in the way Charlie Chaplin (as the titular anti-hero) delivers his vague statement about losing his wife and child to a "happier place" (ie. Heaven), after losing everything in a stock market crash, that hints that he may have, shall we say, given them a "helping hand".

** ''GloriaUnion'' features three of these fights--Ishut against his childhood [[TheRival frienemy]] [[CameBackWrong Velgas]], Elisha and Zazarland against Elisha's mother [[WellIntentionedExtremist Enryetta]], and Ishut versus his badly-abused twin brother [[PsychopathicManchild Ashley]]. Despite this being a LighterAndSofter game, the trope is played straight every time.
