* ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'': Zig-zagged. The Trolls all have ancestors which they share genes with. Many of the ancestors' relationships manifest in different forms in their descendants. [[note]] Darkleer spared the Disciple, and in the present Equius and Nepeta are in a pale-rom. The Sufferer and the Disciple were in a relationship powerful enough to transcend the quadrants, but in the present Nepeta's crush on Karkat is unrequited. The Condesce had a crush on the Psiionic prolonging his life and suffering with her power, Sollux and Feferi were in a relationship. This is invoked where Vriska and Eridan read about their ancestors relationship and try to emulate them, but it quickly falls apart. Mindfang had a relationship with the Summoner who killed her, Vriska attempts to emulate this with Tavros [[spoiler: and she kills him]]. The biggest connection would be the Maryam-Serket one. [[spoiler: Aranea and Porrim were in a relationship that ended after a year, which Aranea doesn't want to talk about]] The Dolorosa was raped by Mindfang in the backstory causing Mindfang to become infatuated with her, and Kanaya has a one sided crush on Vriska.

** Their relationship is so strong that, as a prior incarnation tells Kendra when they are in the Old West, that any relationship other than with Carter [[spoiler:(she is starting one with Ray), is doomed to end in tragedy. The older "Kendra" is living alone, just waiting to die and meet "Carter" in her next life.]]

And we'll be best friends forever\\
In a mostly platonic sense\\
This is a love that never ends"''

** ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' expands this a little more. [[spoiler: The Inner Senshi and the four Shitennou were lovers in their past lives, yes, just like Serenity and Endymion and also Uranus and Neptune. In this one, however, the Shitennou were BrainwashedAndCrazy and the Senshi ''save for Venus'' don't remember their romances when they regain their Senshi selves. Venus tries to explain this but her timing is so poor that the girls almost suffer {{heroic bsod}}'s, and for worse, soon afterwards the guys are KilledOffForReal ''right when they're actually recovering their memories and remembering their past girlfriends''.]]

* [[spoiler:Shirley Fenette]] in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' invokes this image as she dies. There is no indication, however, that there is such thing as reincarnation in the setting, but since there are FromASingleCell-type immortals, it is nonetheless possible. To clarify, this had to do with a series of [[LaserGuidedAmnesia memory wipes]]--but the couple always ended up drawn together.
** Of course... this is also only vaguely suggested to be reciprocated. [[spoiler: Lelouch's behaviour doesn't seem to suggest that he cares for her in a particularly romantic fashion.]] He does care... but more in the sense that he wants her to be happy with someone ''else'', thanks to their past history and stuff. Neither does the amnesiac Shirley. It's only when she regains the memory of loving Lelouch that she starts to love Lelouch again.
* Possibly Alma and Kanda of ''Manga/DGrayMan''. Alma is now a male akuma created from Kanda's girlfriend from his previous life.

And to make it more complicated, Kanda's girlfriend from his previous life.was brought back to life in a male body.]]
