** ''AyashiNoCeres'' features a similar situation where Yuuhi readily accepts his romantic loss to Aya's MysteriousProtector, Tooya. [[spoiler: In the end, however, Tooya tell him that he's dying and won't live more than two years, so he asks Yuuhi to take care of Aya and their soon-to-be-born child once he's gone]].

* Yuuno Scrya from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. Nice guy, helpful, supportive; he was the one who gave Nanoha [[JumpedAtTheCall her calling]] but relationship-wise [[YuriFan it]] [[PanderingToTheBase just]] [[HetIsEw didn't]] [[ImprobablyFemaleCast go]] [[PutOnABus anywhere]].

Cut natter.
** And in ''[[TwentySevenDresses 27 Dresses]]'', but he's more of a DeadpanSnarker there. *** Until ''[[TwentySevenDresses 27 Dresses]]'', there was a joke that if James Marsden is in the movie, the girl he loves is in love with someone else. **** Even then, that was still true for the first half of that movie!

*** Until Jean [[spoiler:[[DroppedABridgeOnHim anti-climatically kills him]]. And later, ''she'' gets killed off. By Wolverine]]. Damn RealLifeWritesThePlot.

* Eleanor of ''VictorianRomanceEmma'' is a female example. There's nothing wrong with her, it's just that William had already fallen in love with someone else.

* Misty from {{Vandread}} falls into this trope. She never really had a chance since she was introduced in Season 2, and her romantic rival, Dita, was a part of the ship's crew, and they didn't want to see her miserable (nor did she want to ostracize them any further). so she painfully gave up pursuing Hibiki, and while she tries to play off her pursuit of him as "being bored", she later goes to the park [[TheWoobie alone to cry.]]

* Sam from Charlaine Harris's ''TheSookieStackhouseMysteries'' books. He's her employer, and first indicated her interest when she got into her first serious relationship with another man. They're just good friends by now.

** Even more heartbreaking is Lennier with regards to Delenn. They both think the world of each other, but Lennier gets OvershadowedByAwesome in the form of Sheridan. [[spoiler:This ends ''horrifically'' when Sheridan gets trapped in a life-threatening situation and Lennier has his first "blink at the Abyss" moment in his ''entire life'' and [[TheUriahGambit leaves him to die]]. [[ConscienceMakesYouGoBack He turns back]] within seconds, but Sheridan is rescued by that time, leaving him with having just tried to ''assassinate the president of the Interstellar Alliance.'' He steals a fighter and flees a very confused Sheridan, who returns to Delenn to find a note from Lennier confessing the whole thing. Delenn - who ''never realized Lennier was in love with her'' - forgives him instantly, Sheridan is implied to get over it within the next day or so, but Lennier '''never'' forgives himself for that moment of weakness.]]

* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}: Saburo was inmature, sometimes overbearing, a borderline stalker and he did many dumb things and hurt people as he tried and failed to get Kaworu back... but he was not a bad person. He was just unable to control his emotions and let the past go. He also thought he was protecting Kaworu of a heart-break by interfering between Rei and him. When he realized that was not the case he gave up.
