* ''GurrenLagann'': By the second part of the series, [[spoiler:love renders you capable of teleportation, and it's weaponised so Simon can [[GetAholdOfYourselfMan Bright Slap]] Rossiu out of commiting suicide. Although that worked because of [[ShrinkingViolet Kinon's]] romantic love for Rossiu ''and'' Simon both supporting her love and still considering Rossiu enough of a friend to go InterruptedSuicide on him even after he condemned him to death]]. Love is, of course, far from the only thing in the setting that transcends spacetime, and not to mention there are ''many'' kinds of love aside of romance.

* This is revealed to be the cause of much of the plot of ''MuvLuvAlternative''. [[spoiler: Sumika's desire to see Takeru again, combined with the dimensional distortions caused by G-Bombs, is what leads to him being drawn to her universe.]]

** The love that exists between the Doctor and Clara Oswald reaches its climax when [[spoiler: after her death, the Doctor spends 4.5 billion years on a gambit to get his people, the Time Lords, to save her and change history. Later, when she is extracted from her timeline, the Doctor races literally to the end moments of the universe in the hopes of keeping her alive.]]

* ''SakuraWars: So Long My Love''. A flashback reveals that 500 years ago, a previous incarnation of the main character Shinjirou battled the Demon Lord OdaNobunaga along with several comrades, including one mysterious foreign nun. They fall in love, [[StarCrossedLovers but]] she has to perform a HeroicSacrifice in order to [[SealedEvilInACan seal the Demon Lord]]. Before she dies, she assures him that their souls will find their way together again someday. [[SchrodingersGun Whichever of the main girls you choose at the end of the game turns out to be a reincarnation of said nun]].

* In ''ScottPilgrim'', when [[spoiler: Gideon KILLS Scott on volume 6]] we see more than half a page full with reaction shots... including [[spoiler: Kim Pine, who isn't even remotely near the scene, but still felt it.]] It's only a panel, casually sneaked in, but it's colored darker than the rest, drawing attention to itself.

* In the penultimate episode of ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'', Van's love for Hitomi (and vice-versa) is enough to allow the Escaflowne, which had up until this point been capable only of atmospheric flight, to make an interplanetary journey from Gaia to pick Hitomi up from Earth in a matter of minutes. Hitomi being a low-grade RealityWarper and Van being the descendant of Atlanteans with similar powers doesn't hurt one bit, of course.

* One old storyline in ''Comicbook/XMen'' is that Professor X had a long distance relationship with the empress of another galaxy. Having never even visited each other's galaxies before, their minds nontheless touched telepathically by the virtue of being soulmates.

* In FireEmblemAwakening, this is played straight if [[spoiler: you choose the Sacrifice Ending (having the Avatar kill Grima knowing that s/he will be erased from existence if s/he does so.) with a married Avatar. Sh/he ''is'' erased as the price for vanishing Grima forever, but ultimately returns to his/her friends and spouse/children.]] Though if you include ''[[TheFourLoves other]]'' [[TheFourLoves kinds of love]] aside of romance, like [[TrueCompanions friendship]] or [[PatrioticFervor love for the continents/countries]] or [[spoiler: familiar love (Mom or Dad Avatar to any of his/her possible children)]], then it's '''always''' played straight.

* In ''VoicesOfADistantStar'', junior-high sweethearts Mikako and Noboru are separated when Mikako is selected as a HumongousMecha pilot and sent with the fleet into space. As the fleet does not have FTL communications technology, the only means of contact the two have is email, with increasingly long delays in transmission - first six months, then a year, until finally Mikako ends up eight and a half lightyears from Earth. The anime does some deconstructing as both Mikako and Noboru struggle to cope with the separation - Noboru at one point even making up his mind to give up on Mikako, saying that "a distance that takes eight years at the speed of light is no different than saying 'forever'," - but ultimately plays the trope straight in its final scenes.
-->''"I am here."''

* In "Film/RunLolaRun", love alone appears to allows the protagonist to reload the day and try again.
* Played straight in ''Film/DejaVu''- Doug regularly gets feelings of "deja vu" where he feels as though he has experienced similar events before such as when he is in the time machine or in the car listening to the radio. Unbeknownst to him these events actually happened in previously altered timelines to alternate versions of himself. It can be imagined that this is due to the power of his love for Claire or fate dictating that they be together.
--> '''Claire''' What if you had to tell someone the most important thing in the world, but you knew they'd never believe you?
--> '''Doug:''' I'd try.
