* ''MegaManX4'' has finally included the option of playing as AscendedExtra and [[EnsembleDarkhorse major fan-favorite]] Zero, along with his own story. The bad part? In Zero's story, he has to fight ''and'' kill Iris, ''his own girlfriend'', who wants to seek revenge on Zero for killing her brother. The {{narm}} that came with the game's horrible voice acting ruined one of the truly [[TearJerker heartwrenching]] moments in the series. (The original Japanese voice acting did a much better job in powering the said TearJerker moment.)

* In ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' Hikaru and Lantis had it pretty bad. She killed [[AntiVillain his brother]] without knowing the true story behind his actions, then spent the entire second season caught between falling in love with Lantis and feeling heartbroken because he probably hated her for killing his only family. Lantis didn't have it any easier. Though he didn't hold her accountable and wasn't averse to loving her after she unknowingly revealed her feelings for him, it all went downhill when she was chosen as a candidate for the Pillar...[[spoiler: thus threatening to repeat the tragic romance of his elder brother and the former Pillar Emeraude. [[ItGotBetter Hikaru managed to destroy the Pillar system later on]] but still was forced to go back to her world after saving Cephiro in the end.]]

** Yoko had it pretty hard too: the event that changed her from a {{Tsundere}} to a CoolBigSis was [[spoiler: [[DecoyProtagonist Kamina]]'s death]]. [[TearJerker Which happend on the very morning of their first kiss]] right after he promised to [[spoiler: give her something ten times better when the battle is over ...damn {{Retirony}}]].

Added DiffLines:

* Each antagonist in ''VideoGame/RuleOfRose'' has a different motivation for hurting people, but the worst antagonists are motivated by love. The BigBad's entire plan is "Hurt [[spoiler:Jennifer]] so much that she will become a broken, mindless shell and never hurt (read: [[WomanScorned reject]]) me again", and her [[TheDragon Dragon]]'s love for his dead son drives him [[spoiler:murderously]] insane. Fortunately, TheHero is motivated by everything ''good'' about love, so it all [[{{Foil}} sort of balances out]].

* Music/BillieHoliday had a tragic life where she was the victim of rape at age 11, teenage prostitution, abusive partners and severe alcohol, morfine and heroin addiction. All it culminated in her MagnumOpus ''Music/LadyInSatin'', where she sings about break-ups, unrequited love and all hardships of relationships in her drug ravaged voice. Only a year after recording this album she would die from liver cirrosis.

If you've got more than one love interest, you've got a [[GreenEyedMonster headache-inducing]] LoveTriangle or even LoveDodecahedron on your hands. Tread these waters ''very'' carefully, lest you be on the receiving end of a {{Yandere}}'s poisonous affections or a {{Tsundere}}'s MegatonPunch. Pick one lover and you can look forward to either a ThunderingHerd of [[ClingyJealousGirl jilted rivals]] or the [[ObliviousToLove silent shattering]] of [[AllLoveIsUnrequited many other hearts]]. All in the name of comedy, you say? Comedy never became as twisted as it does when dealing with lovers [[LoveMakesYouCrazy crazy]] enough to beat down your door, commit trespassing, [[TheGlomp glomp]] you, and refuse to let go. And [[ColdTurkeysAreEverywhere remembering the love interest anywhere you go]] makes it worse.

** In [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Origins]], you have [[LadyOfBlackMagic Morrigan]] who turns out to [[spoiler:have had a [[WasItAllALie secret agenda the whole game]] and leaves -- while possibly pregnant with your child -- despite having genuinely fallen in love with you]]. Alistair will also break up with you if he [[spoiler:becomes King and you're not a human noble, unless you become his mistress (at the cost of [[CorruptTheCutie hardening]] him)]]. He will also [[spoiler:[[AlwaysSaveTheGirl sacrifice himself to save you]] if you refused to do Morrigan's ritual]]. Leliana and the Warden will separate somewhere between the end of Origins and Inquisition. On top of all this, the Warden themselves [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice can die]]]] at the end of game depending on your choices.
