* A bit of a complicated example involving both ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': in ''Awakening'' Tharja can marry a male Avatar (hence refered to as Robin for clarity), and in ''Fates'' Rhajat can marry an Avatar of [[GayOption either gender]] (hence referred to as Corrin).[[note]]And a female Corrin can be her ''mother'', if she marries her father Hayato[[/note]] What makes this complicated? While it's strongly implied that Rhajat and Tharja are part of the same reincarnation cycle, and Robin and Corrin are also part of a reincarnation cycle, it's not exactly clear which couple is the Reincarnation Romance: The Rhajat-Corrin S-support implies that Tharja and Robin came first and reincarnated into Rhajat and Corrin, while Rhajat's [[spoiler: FamousLastWords, should Classic Mode be turned on,]] implies that ''she'' will reincarnate into ''Tharja'' instead.
** To a lesser degree, also true for other characters from the Hoshido side: [[spoiler: Asugi and Caeldori, who may not be ''as'' strongly implied to be the reincarnations of Gaius and Cordelia from ''Awakening'' but ''do'' share startling similarities with them. Caeldori can marry Asugi and a Male Corrin among others, plus strike an OddFriendship with Rhajat and be either friends or mother-and-daughter with Female Corrin; on the other hand Asugi can be friends with a Male Corrin, marry either a Female Corrin, Rhajat or Caeldori, or be the son of a Female Avatar if she marries his dad Saizo.]]

* Subverted in a story in the British girls' comic ''Misty'', where a girl discovers that in her previous life she committed suicide to escape a forced marriage. Her would-be husband has also reincarnated and is looking for her; having full memories of their previous lives and the evil plan that he was to make her part of. He's none too happy when his intended "bride" isn't quite so fond of him as he expects.

Compare AmnesiacLover. See also EternalLove, which describes a different kind of very long-term relationship. When handled badly, this can very easily turn into StrangledByTheRedString.

* ''Manga/FairyTail'': In the epilogue, [[spoiler:it's revealed that StarCrossedLovers Mavis Vermilion and Zeref Dragneel have been reincarnated as a young woman named Mio, from a small punlishing company, and a young man named Arleos, an amateur writer, respectively, with no memories of their past lives. They both attend the celebration for Lucy's award for her new book, and promptly have a MeetCute in front of the members of Fairy Tail, in the hot month of August[[note]]August is the month where Zeref and Mavis created their fondest memories together; Zeref would unknowingly name the son he had with Mavis after that time[[/note]]. After everything the two went through, Team Natsu and co. can't help but smile at the scene, happy that they can finally live a happy life together]].

* In MichiyoAkaishi's ''Manga/TenYoriMoHoshiYoriMo'', the three main characters ([[BitchInSheepsClothing Shinjou]], [[TroubledButCute Shou]] and [[TheIngenue Mio]]) are the reincarnations of three persons involved in a tragic LoveTriangle centuries ago. [[spoiler: These persons were, respectively: Minamoto no Yoritomo aka the first shogun of the Kamakura shogunate, Yoritomo's brother and rival Yoshitsune, and Yoshitsune's lover Shizuka Gozen.]]

* The big reveal of Meliodas' and Elizabeth's true relationship ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'', with a heavy dose of YankTheDogsChain. [[spoiler:During the ancient war, Elizabeth and Meliodas were cursed by their respective leaders, The Supreme Deity and The Demon King for falling in love with each other. Meliodas was cursed to live forever and never die no matter what. Elizabeth was cursed to reincarnate into someone who will grow up exactly like her except for her memories, and if she ever get her memory back, she ''will'' die within three days' time, and the cycle will begin anew. Even when Meliodas try to distance himself from her, she will fall in love with him, her powers and memories would return, and she would invariably die while Meliodas can only watch.]] It's something worthy of ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}''

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/WendyWuHomecomingWarrior'': It's implied that Shen and Wendy's previous incarnations were more than just teacher and student, judging by how easily they get close to each other in such a short amount of time (though Shen does admit Wendy is "different" from her previous incarnations). [[spoiler:If that's true, nothing ever came of it because Shen was always fated to die against Yan-lo. When Wendy says ScrewDestiny and saves Shen from his fate, Yan-lo is destroyed, and they are finally able to enjoy their last life together]].

* One popular interpretation (or at least popular in {{FanVid}}s) of Music/{{Christina Perri}}'s "A Thousand Years" is that it's about one half of this trope singing about meeting the other in her next life.
