Elsa even felt sad as to how he didn't recognize her and even wondered if Hans remembered the friendship they had when they were children.

** Erza Scarlett and Jellal Fernandez. Both have confessed (or been interupted while confessing) to have loved one another, spend more time thinking about one another than any other potential couple in the series (except maybe the two background characters whose whole schtick is not being able to confess their love), have displayed a ''telepathic ability to tell when one is in trouble or rooting for them'', and every time they're about to get a chance to be together something will happen to take Jellal away, like corruption, or death, or arrest, in that order.
** A more straight example would be [[spoiler:Zeref Dragneel and Mavis Vermilion, the BigBad and BigGood, respectively. Ankhseram's Curse denied them any chance at happiness together -- as a curse of contradictions, Zeref's love for Mavis allowed her curse to be broken and be killed by their first and only kiss. It was her death that caused Zeref's true StartOfDarkness. It becomes FridgeHorror when one realizes that Mavis ''didn't'' die. Her body was killed but her spirit became an AstralProjection that can only be seen by members of Fairy Tail, and it's implied she spent much of this existence by Zeref's side. Zeref himself admitted to being able to feel her presence, but as he wasn't a member of the guild, he was unable to interact with her. It makes what Ankhseram did all the more crueler: they were both among the living still, but couldn't be a part of each other's lives]].

** And then there's also [[HoYay Prussia/Austria]] fanfics set during the Cold War where Prussia (now East Germany) is kept behind the Berlin Wall and Austria, who is not governed by the Soviet reach of Communism, is separated from him for years.

Compare DatingCatwoman, where the relationship is forbidden but doesn't usually end tragically. Notice the overlaps with BodyguardCrush, InterspeciesRomance, InterClassRomance, MayflyDecemberRomance, and MalignedMixedMarriage. See also BuryYourGays. Often the case for a VampireWerewolfLoveTriangle. May be used as a PretextForWar.

* The new Axe advert [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UH31wd1ALjk “Soulmates”]], a 90-second spot tells the story of a man's ill-fated pursuit of a woman throughout human history. It starts in prehistoric days with a bearded cave man trying to reach a woman who has just noticed him until the [[SnowMeansDeath ice]] below splits, and there’s a divide between them. The same man and woman are shown in different time periods and places: Ancient Pompeii; an Arabian palace (probably the Ottoman Empire); a cowboy bar in the American West; foggy 19th century London; a sinking ship (the Titanic?); an undisclosed war, probably WorldWarTwo; a 1960s anti-war protest. There are either natural disasters or human interventions that prevent him from reaching her, even during the times she ''is'' shown noticing him. It isn't until the current day, inside a convenience store at a gas station, that the same man we saw in all of these other time periods takes down an Axe product. He uses some body spray on himself and the long-pursued girl immediately is at his side. They leave together and, as they walk away, a truck crashes into the gas pumps and the station explodes: the intervention of the Axe product prevented another act of fate from keeping them apart.

*** Even more so: [[spoiler:Princess Nyna and Camus. [[FromBadToWorse Holy shit, Nyna and Camus]]. Initially [[BodyguardCrush her bodyguard]], he's forced to pretend to betray their country to the invading forces in order to keep her alive as [[TrophyWife his supposed "personal spoil of war"]]. Camus successfully delivers Nyna to Marth and to safety, but keeps up the ruse and is apparently killed in the resulting boss fight. Nyna accepts an ArrangedMarriage to Prince Hardin, who ''also'' has a huge BodyguardCrush on her, after the war is over, only for him to fall into depression when he realizes that Nyna cares for him but simply ''cannot'' love him back, which led him to end up BrainwashedAndCrazy. Meanwhile, Camus reappears in Valentia, amnesiac and with a new name given to him by Tatiana, the WhiteMagicianGirl who found him. He falls for Tatiana and marries her between the second and third games, but regains his memory and goes back to Archanea to aid Marth in defeating Hardin and Medeus while under the guise of Sirius. Camus/Sirius is the key to freeing Nyna from the BrainwashedAndCrazy state Medeus put her in, but pretends he isn't himself to spare her feelings and [[FatalAttractor not bring her more misfortune]]. It fails because his disguise is terrible, but he still refuses to stay with Nyna, so he returns to Valentia and Tatiana afterward. The [[BrokenBird emotionally-shattered Nyna]] gets sick of all the fighting and how much her life has sucked (plus Hardin died after being defeated and debrainwashed), so [[AbdicateTheThrone she gives her kingdom to Marth]] [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere a [[ButNowIMustGo leaves]], presumably to follow and confront Camus.

He will never. ever know if she really loves him or is just [[ChildSoldier conditioned]] to, and just as they're in the middle of figuring it out, [[spoiler:she dies]]. Worsening the trope is that they're both willing to die to protect the other, and in the sort of situation where they might well have to.
* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' has Sonozaki Shion and Houjou Satoshi. The latter's family became outcasts after they accepted money from the government to leave the village where a dam was to be built (while the rest of the village fought against it). When Shion fell in love with him, her family was a bit... angry about it. "Rip off three of your fingernails in repentance in a torture chamber" angry. To the point Shion thinks for a long time [[spoiler:that her family had the boy killed,]] although she was wrong about that.
