** This plays into the plot, albeit in a very minor way, in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. In Zelda's journal in Hyrule Castle, one of the entries talks about her mother, who suddenly passed away when she was a very young girl. This deprived Zelda of not only her parent, but her teacher, as the queen was able to use the royal blood's divine power and was to instruct Zelda how to awaken it. [[spoiler: In a way, her death is one of the biggest reasons that Zelda failed to awaken it in time and it lead to the destruction of the world.]]

* Series/SeventhHeaven: Oldest daughter (of the original family) Mary has a son with her husband; then promptly abandons son and husband (much played for drama, as her parents strongly oppose to this). Induced plot point since by this time, the actress who portrayed Mary (Creator/JessicaBiel) had left the show, but the show still wanted to portray her husband and son every now and then. Subverted in the end, as the plot had her (off-screen) reconcile with her husband and even become pregnant with him again.
