*** 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 and]] [[ButNowIMustGo leaves]], presumably to follow and confront Camus. Their subplot is never resolved.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** This can, however, be played completely straight if one member of a couple set in the endings dies: the survivor's end will go from a happy ending with his/her beloved to a bittersweet one ''tops''. This includes: [[spoiler: Mae and Boey [[note]](if she dies, he becomes a famous sage and spiritual leader but never marries; if he dies, Mae tends to a monastery and stays single for the rest of her life)[[/note]], Gray and Clair [[note]](if he dies, she becomes a famous lady of war but refuses to marry; if she dies, he disappears forever)[[/note]], the aforementioned Tatiana and Zeke [[note]](if she dies, he leaves to Archanea but never returns to Valentia; if he does, she locks herself away in a monastery, and only recovers in the remake)[[/note]], Clive and Mathilda [[note]](if he dies, Mathilda also becomes a fighting paragon but refuses to ever love anyone again; if she dies, he perishes very early while fighting pirates)[[/note]]. Strong cases can also be made for Leon's UnrequitedLove for Valbar [[note]](if Valbar dies, Leon [who already lost his FirstLove in the past] becomes a famous knight and instructor but emotionally shuts down)[[/note]] and ''maybe'' Python and Forsyth [[note]](Forsyth only ever marries if Python dies, while Python will also die young if Forsyth dies)[[/note]].]]

** ''Anime/YourName'' carries on the tradition; not only are Taki and Mitsuha separated by spatial distance, [[spoiler:but by time and death too; in Taki's original timeline, the passing comet Tiamat 3 years ago split off a meteor that killed Mitsuha. That said, by the end of the film, they finally reunite, with the strong implication that they get together at last.]]

* Takaki and Akari in ''Anime/FiveCentimetersPerSecond'' are an interesting example; their parents' moving for work means they keep getting separated and their relationship unravels over the years as communication slows and ceases, but they still have ''marginally'' more of a chance at a happy ending than most examples.
** One of the creator's previous works, ''Anime/VoicesOfADistantStar'', features an almost literal example of this. The two main characters are light-years apart due to her fighting in space, and due to mankind having FasterThanLightTravel without a corresponding SubspaceAnsible, her messages to him take years to reach; in the final act now-20 something him is receiving messages from still-15 her and as he remarks InUniverse, a message travel time of years might as well be forever. That said, the very last scene contains blink and you miss it allusions to his joining the SpaceNavy gearing up for a rescue mission, meaning there might be a chance they could get together after all.

** 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. Eventually, [[TogetherInDeath they finally die together through the use of the One Magic]]. The epilogue reveals they both have been reincarnated with no memories of their tragic relationship, and have a MeetCute in front of the members of Fairy Tail, suggesting that they might get their HappilyEverAfter after all]].
