** After a run-in with some ghost-type Pokemon, Wobbuffet runs away, leaving behind the rest of Team Rocket. The ghosts are actually trying to live in peace and quiet, but the Psychic-type Pokemon in the nearby abandoned town are making too much noise. Team Rocket decides to help them in their plight. Around the same time, Wobbuffet runs into the aforementioned Psychic-types, and falls in LoveAtFirstSight with the Kirlia dancer (and she reciprocates!). When his teammates show up to kidnap the Psychic-types, Wobbuffet (usually a YesMan to the rest of Team Rocket) actively goes against them to protect her. Unfortunately, the romance was short-lived, since StatusQuoIsGod dictates that Wobbuffet stays with Team Rocket, and he winds up getting sent [[ATwinkleInTheSky flying]] without even saying goodbye.

* Might as well throw Saber/Shiro from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' in there. They're even worse since at least Arcueid/Shiki had a "Good Ending" and maybe a sequel to the "True Ending?"
** Well, there is a Good ending with Saber... Only it's ''Rin's''...
*** [[RevisedEnding The PS2 port finally gives both Shirou and Saber their due.]] [[HundredPercentCompletion You... just have to finish the entire game first.]]

In modern times, the term "star-crossed" is often unknowingly misused to mean lovers who are meant to be together. It means just the opposite--the stars (i.e. destiny or the heavens) have ruled '''against''' them, or "crossed" their plan--[[DontExplainTheJoke get it]]? Compare the word "[[http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=disaster disaster]]", which has the etymology "away; without" ("dis") + "star; planet" ("aster"). Then again, [[WhenThePlanetsAlign if the stars rule that much]], they probably decreed the love as well as the impossibility, making the stars capricious and cruel, at the very least. It also refers to [[BecauseDestinySaysSo destiny]] and [[FateDrivesUsTogether the inevitability of the two characters' paths crossing each other]]. It usually, but not always, refers to unlucky outcomes, since Romeo and Juliet's affair ended tragically. Further, it may also connote that the lovers entered into their union without sufficient forethought or preparation, that they did not have adequate knowledge of each other, or that they were not thinking rationally (because they were being controlled by fate).

* Peter Townsend and Princess Margaret of Great Britain. Townshend was an AcePilot and war hero, having flown Hurricane in the [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Battle Of Britain]], and clearly had deserved the hand of princess and half the domain. Queen Elizabeth said "no" for their marriage; Townsend was a divorcee. That broke the hearts of both. Townsend later revealed Margaret was his only true love.
