* Subverted [[TearJerker heartbreakingly]] in ''Anime/MarmaladeBoy'' with Meiko and her teacher/love interest Mr. Namura. He's leaving town due to unfortunate circumstances (she was caught leaving his apartment after innocently sleeping on his couch overnight and rumors flew), and Meiko rushes to the train station and begs him to take her with him. He tells her no, not wanting to hold her back from finishing her education, and they share a last tearful embrace before he boards the train. [[spoiler:Thankfully, they do eventually earn their happy ending when she's of age and he's no longer her teacher.]]

* One of Hollywood's earliest examples comes from ''Film/GirlShy'', a 1924 silent film starring physical comedian Harold Lloyd as Harold Meadows. Near the film's end, Harold discovers that his love Mary is about to marry a man who is secretly a bigamist. He takes it upon himself to stop the wedding...and, in a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, engages in a ''twenty minute'' chase to do so, riding everything from the ladder of a fire engine to a few streetcars to a horse to reach Mary in time. What makes it especially impressive is that Lloyd did all of his own stunts for the sequence.
