** The ending of the second CompilationMovie expands upon this, showing he has actually followed the CallToAgriculture and is going on a tour of farming villages to train them in the proper use of irrigation so that the world can recover from its desertified state.

* ''Film/TheSearchers'': A more subtle example, but after spending years searching for his niece and saving her from the Indian tribe that kidnapped her, protagonist [[JohnWayne Ethan Edwards]] lingers in the doorway of his family's house and then leaves, rather than join his family in the house to celebrate the girl's return. Even the shot composition illustrates that Ethan's dark AntiHero tendencies (not to mention the undercurrent of racism that drove his quest) won't allow him to live a normal, happy life.

* In the ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse and ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' this is Paperinik's true cross as a superhero: he knows that he could finally be respected and admired even in his civilian identity if he renounced his SecretIdentity (and, given it's ComicBook/DonaldDuck, that's something he ''really'' needs and deserve), but if he did so he'd endanger them, so he'll ''never'' take off the mask (and if someone finds out [[LaserGuidedAmnesia he'll wipe their memories]]).

* In ''TheDresdenFiles'', [[spoiler: Harry's girlfriend Susan decides to leave after becoming a vampire]], joining a band of other FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires who are fighting their hunger as well as evil vampires. (Since OurVampiresAreDifferent, a person who has been turned doesn't become a ''full'' vampire until they feed for the first time. Until then, they're still themselves, and though the hunger is felt, they don't have to feed to survive.)

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': During the War, Shinji, Asuka, Rei and their teammates absorbed the powers of all [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Lovecraftian]] {{Eldritch Abomination}}s killed by them until they became {{Humanoid Abomination}}s. When they fought the Elder Gods for last time, [[spoiler:Rei chose to seal herself with them forever,]] telling her friends that she'd never be capable of having a normal life. After saving the world, [[spoiler:Shinji and Asuka left his friends and human civilization forever because they didn't belong with humans anymore]] (in a subversion, they left together).

* The OVA ''Guyver: Out of Control'' features Sho Fukamachbi playing a variant on type one. After rescuing his [[ChildhoodFriendRomance childhood friend Mizuki]], he brings her to a small overlook where she awakens to see him, in Guyver form, and almost instantly manages to deduce who's behind that odd alien mask. (and bear in mind in Guyver form the guy is at least seven feet tall, not counting the horn on the head of the armor from all we can see) He stands up and looks into the sunset, then turns around, and walks off not saying a thing to her as she desperately screams/pleads for him to come back. The epilogue says Mizuki went back to school and was fine after that, but Sho himself is never seen again. Presumably he and Guyver III continue their war against Chronos in secret but nobody knows it.

* ''Video Game: Batman: Arkham Knight'': After saving the Gotham from Scarecrow's terrorist attack, dealing with the [[TitleDrop Arkham Knight]], and tying up all loose ends, Bruce Wayne goes straight home and [[spoiler:blows up his house. Nobody knows exactly where he went to retire and/or what he was planning to fight next]]. Hell of a way to retire, but Batman's allies had finally leveled up enough to take on the Rogues Gallery on their own.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' himself attempts this with [[spoiler: Ginny Weasley when he chooses to leave her to finish the job of destroying Voldemort, even doing the walk-away. However, Ginny is GenreSavvy enough to know what he's doing and why, and more or less pledges to wait until he's finished with what he needs to do.]]
