* At the end of ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'', [[spoiler: Okabe has saved the world and the woman he loves, but due to TimeTravel being involved, nobody but him will [[WistfulAmnesia (consciously)]] remember [[TheGreatestStoryNeverTold all the hardships and struggles he faced]] to EarnYourHappyEnding. Thus, he figures that Kurisu has probably went back to America and forgotten all about him. However, as he's accepting this since this means that she's alive and happy "doing her own thing", he runs into Kurisu in a chance encounter, Kurisu having stayed in Japan for the past month trying to find Okabe.]]

--> '''[=SpongeBob=]:''' Wait a second, everybody. There's something I need to say first... I just don't know how to put it.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' when [[ActionGirl Miko Miyazaki]] was introduced, Roy was attracted to her and began flirting, only to be ignored. After Roy had an encounter requiring him to use the Belt of Gender-Bending, he told Miko that he'd gained valuable insight from the experience, and won't hit on her any more. Miko replies that maybe now she'd be willing to date him... but what Roy ''meant'' was that he'd realized Miko is an overly aggressive, self-righteous, LawfulStupid jerk with NoSocialSkills, and [[SubvertedTrope he no longer wants her at all]].

** In "Crusaders of the Lost Mark," after helping Diamond Tiara make a HeelFaceTurn and discover the true meaning of her special talent (the crown means being a true leader, not a stuck-up RichBitch) and helping Pipsqueak win the student council election at the same time, and seeing the two of them work together to do a lot of good for the school and the other kids, they decide that what they really want to do is [[spoiler: help others learn the meaning of their talents like the did for Diamond Tiara]]. Scootaloo exclaims that [[spoiler: she doesn't care if she never gets her cutie mark so long as she can keep being with her friends and doing things like they did today]], and the other two wholeheartedly agree. [[spoiler: Cue the trio getting their cutie marks all at once]].

* A minor example in ''Theatre/LesMiserables'': for almost as long as she's onstage, Eponine is constantly pining after Marius, but he just doesn't see her. She eventually gives up the chase in "On My Own", saying that "she knows that he is blind", and that while she won't stop loving him, she knows that he'll never love her and admits defeat. A few songs later, in "Little Fall of Rain", she finally has Marius hold her in his arms after she tells him how she feels. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, she's just been shot, and [[DiedInYourArmsTonight is slowly bleeding out]].

** "Prologue" has Valjean try again and again to become an honest man, only to have no one trust him because [[DisproportionateRetribution he's been in jail for 19 years for stealing a loaf of bread]]. He eventually gives up being an honest man and steals the Bishop's silver, only to have the Bishop give him the silver candlesticks in addition to what he stole so that he can sell them and start a new life.
** And again: Valejean spends the entire show running from Javert. In "[[spoiler:Javert's Suicide]]", Valjean promises to turn himself in if Javert will let him take Marius to safety. [[spoiler:Immediately afterwards, however, Javert kills himself, and Valjean is presumably allowed to go free]].
* In ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', the eponymous Hamilton's decisive and bold strokes to establish America's economy are constantly blocked by the Democratic-Republicans, led by Jefferson and Madison. In "The Room Where It Happens", he gives up on those and begins trying Burr's approach of waiting, listening, and comprimising, and is surprised to learn that his bold strokes go over just fine when he's willing to give something up in return.

* Wrestling/SamiZayn's quest for the [[Wrestling/{{WWENXT}} NXT]] Championship and his reputation as the guy who's incapable of winning "the big one" come to a head in his feud with long time friend Wrestling/AdrianNeville. Zayn's unwavering stance on winning and doing things the honest way earned him criticism from the champion, Neville, who never outright cheated, but showed he was willing to cut corners to retain the belt when pushed to the brink even if doing so risked compromising his friendship with Zayn. Neville cited his friend's kindness and lack of a killer instinct as reasons he would never win when it truly mattered. These words lit a fire under Zayn, who put his career on the line and slapped Neville in anger, finally done with being the nice guy that worked to earn the respect of others. During the championship match, the referee gets knocked out and Zayn is left with the perfect opportunity to smash Neville's face in with the championship belt for an easy win. This is Zayn's chance to not only prove he win the big one, but that he ''isn't'' "too nice" to be champion. Zayn is [[MoralDilemma conflicted]], but ultimately decides against using the belt...and then goes on to win the match clean. In doing so, Zayn keeps his career ''and'' his friendship with Neville, wins the big one, and above all, stays true to himself.
