* Heather and Veronica almost put Doggett through this in ''Literature/TheWizardTheWitchAndTwoGirlsFromJersey'', planning to sneak away rather than admit Heather isn't [[TheChosenOne Princess Arabelle]]. Doggett finds out everything, and is more upset about their willingness to leave and not say goodbye than Heather's true identity.

** ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/6444427/chapters/14748607 Ruined With You]]'', like others, forces the heroes to give up the Miraculous to the Guardian to allow their kwamis to hibernate, but here Adrien gives it up at the first opportunity, again out of shame about his father. As such, Marinette doesn't have quite as much trouble moving on with her life, since she knows for sure that she won't be seeing Chat again. [[spoiler: That said, when she does find out who he is, she's pretty furious that he never tried to contact her through the Guardian in two years. She later feels guilty about lashing out at him, after she has time to process the implications about his father.]]

As such, Marinette doesn't have quite as much trouble moving on with her life, since she knows for sure that she won't be seeing Chat again.

* ''Series/{{MASH}}''. A few times, especially the finale, though [[HeartwarmingMoment ultimately subverted]].

to:

* ''Series/{{MASH}}''. A ''Series/{{MASH}}''
** PlayedWith in the 3rd season finale, "Abyssinia, Henry". All the characters do have the opportunity to say goodbye to Henry, who has gotten his orders to be transferred stateside. [[spoiler: However, Henry is killed on his way home - the characters said goodbye, but they thought they were saying goodbye to someone who was leaving Korea, not leaving life]]
** Trapper John was PutOnABus in the break after season 3. In the Season 4 premiere, Hawkeye returns from R&R to discover he had left for the airport only
few times, hours prior. Despite racing to follow him, Trapper departs for the States before Hawkeye can catch him to say goodbye.
** DownPlayed when Frank Burns was PutOnABus, as most of the characters didn't say goodbye (Hawkeye did say it, over the phone) before Frank was transferred and promoted, but given that they all hated him, they weren't
especially broken up about it.
** When Radar left, he and Hawkeye had several false-starts at their Goodbye conversation, with Hawkeye saying he couldn't do it until he was drunk enough that he wouldn't care about the emotion he'd been displaying. Just before the Farewell party, the camp gets a fresh supply of wounded, and Hawkeye is unable to say goodbye in person. Instead, he gives Radar a rare salute through the operating room doors.
** {{Subverted}} in
the finale, though [[HeartwarmingMoment ultimately subverted]].when [=BJ=] also gets his orders to leave while Hawkeye is away, but returns to camp shortly thereafter. In a rare ContinuityNod to the first three seasons, Hawkeye mentions that Trapper also left without saying goodbye.
*** Ultimately {{averted}} entirely in the finale, as every remaining character on the series had a final conversation and goodbye with everyone else.



* When Trapper was discharged from the army in ''Series/{{Mash}}'', Hawkeye becomes quite upset because he was on leave at the time and never got to say goodbye. This comes up again in the finale, when Hawkeye becomes angry at BJ's refusal to actually ''say'' goodbye, saying he's still hurt that Trapper didn't.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Anime/YourName'' side novel ''Another Side: Earthbound'' reveals that Toshiki had been DistractedFromDeath, having been out trying to find other doctors to cure Futaba, and therefore had to settle for hearing her last words secondhand from a nurse, as opposed to getting to bid her farewell in person. This presumably contributed to his present-day issues.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Lalli in regards to [[spoiler:Tuuri. After finding out she has come down with a deadly disease while alone, she ran off to commit Suicide By Sea without anybody noticing before it was too late. At least, the nature of the afterlife and the way magic works in that universe let Tuuri say goodbye to a comatose Onni]].

** ''Fanfic/{{Fermeture}}'' is a standout example of the "fluffy happy ending" category, which opens several years after Hawkmoth's defeat with Marinette living a good life by any standard, but occasionally consumed by regret over never revealing her identity to Chat Noir or letting him do the same when they had the chance - it's stated that she'd tried and failed to find him in the brief window after Tikki told her why she and Plagg would have to leave but before they actually did. She decides to try to set up a reunion with him through the Ladyblog, hoping for some kind of closure. [[spoiler:[[EarnYourHappyEnding She ultimately succeeds when Adrien shows up]], (no doubt having had the exact same regrets) though she comes very close to leaving without either of them making the connection]].

* ''VideoGame/Persona3'': In "[[PlayableEpilogue The Answer]]", Yukari Takeba's grief over [[spoiler:not being able to be at the Protagonist's side when he died]] really, really puts a damper on her emotional state. It gets to the point where she tries to distract herself by burying herself in cram school and ignoring the rest of her friends. Not helping is her jealously towards [[spoiler:Aigis for actually being there for the Protagonist's side during his last moments]].



* Horribly,HORRIBLY, subverted in Machinima/RedVsBlue. [[spoiler: Agent Texas whispers goodbye during her HeroicSacrifice but no one can hear her say it.]]
