** There is also a literal example when it comes to Ember. [[WordOfGod according to the show's creators]] she was an unpopular and lonely girl who got asked out by a boy she liked. [[ImplausibleDeniability She waited all night and told herself that he was just running late.]] When she got home and fell asleep, she was much too tired to notice the fire that broke out in her home and she died. This revelation gives her song a whole new meaning and explains the presence of fire in her overall look and stage name. Given that she's a ghost, he'd better hope he stays alive a good long time.

* After the credits in ''[[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Black Knight]]'', it's shown that Sonic's adventure in Arthurian times has apparently sidetracked him from going on a date with Amy, as she then chews him out for making the lamest excuse ever and draws her signiture Piko-Piko Hammer, to which Sonic runs away, with Amy Chasing after.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/Batman1989'' has the song that played during the casino scene. The lyrics are never heard in the movie, but they're from Bruce Wayne's point of view, where he regretfully admits he loves Vicki Vale, but his sense of duty to protect Gotham as Batman always wins.

-->''Never known a love so sweet... But still I keep Vicki waiting''
* Offspring references it in "Self-Esteem" their song about a guy being treated like an appliance by his so called girlfriend.
-->''We make plans to go out at night / I wait 'til 2 then I turn out the light''

* In ''VisualNovel/TrueLoveJunaiMonogatari'', the PlayerCharacter can pull this on the girls after they ask him for dates. Obviously, they'll get [[BerserkButton pretty upset at him]] -- this is specially true for [[spoiler: Miyuki Tanaka]], since ditching her means the chance to date her is now LostForever.
