* Rinne seems prone to causing this in ''Anime/VividStrike''. Two of her opponents note how it'll be their last tournament (in [[spoiler:Miura's]] case it's more that she'll be too old to be in the U-15 bracket), only to be curb-stomped by her. [[spoiler:Subverted for the former, as her defeat actually convinced her to keep going even if only at a local level.]]

* Double example in "Assignment 2" of ''Series/SapphireAndSteel'', in which the aggrieved ghosts include a fighter pilot who died on his very last mission before he'd have earned demobilization, and a World War I infantryman who got killed ''after'' the armistice because somebody on the other side hadn't gotten the news in time.

* ''Film/BattleLosAngeles'': Nantz is two days from retiring from the Marines when the movie starts. Subverted, in that he survives the events of the movie and goes right back into the war without hesitation at the end. In fact, it's precisely because he's about to retire that he is able to cope with the deaths of others and adapt quickly, whereas the younger troops aren't ready for so gruesome a battle.
