* In a twist on Myth/NorseMythology (see below), Creator/MarvelComics' ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' (back when the title was still ''Journey Into Mystery'') had Loki [[AndIMustScream trapped forever in the form of a tree]] unless someone cried for him, but he was such a dick that not even his wife shed a single tear. After a few millenia of experimenting, he discovered that he could make his leaves fall off, and managed to get one to drop into somone's eye. The resulting tear freed him, and the MarvelUniverse has never been the same since-- among many other deeds, he was indirectly responsible for Comicbook/TheAvengers getting together.

* When the [[NorseMythology Norse god]] [[{{Bishonen}} Baldur]] was shot with a [[DepletedPhlebotinumShells mistletoe dart]] (the [[KryptoniteFactor only thing that could kill him]]), it was decided that he would return if everyone in the world shed a tear for him. Everyone did - except [[JerkAss Loki]], who had killed Baldur in the first place. Naturally, Baldur stayed dead. So this is OlderThanFeudalism.
