** Oliver himself has had several. Along with the aforementioned Shado, he's lost Sara (twice), and Taiana. But the one that completely and utterly crushes him is [[spoiler:Laurel, his ChildhoodFriend, his FirstLove, his LivingEmotionalCrutch during his five years away from home, and quite possibly the love of his life. Not only that, she was the woman his best friend Tommy loved and died for, and the immense amount of grief, regret and failure he feels that stems from all this is what causes Oliver to regress on his ThouShaltNotKill rule that he adopted in the wake of ''Tommy's'' death. In Season Five, it is made very clear that Laurel's death was the one death closest to pushing him over the edge above all others, and that he can't take much more tragedy before he breaks completely, like Malcolm and Slade did]].

** Robert Baratheon's rage and pain over Lyanna Stark still hasn't cooled after 17 years. The Season 6 finale implies that this was not really reciprocated since Lyanna was convinced that Robert would murder her son and she feared his wrath.

* In the ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' series, Luke's murdered wife Sayna is this to him. He even names his ship after her (albeit at the request of their son Martin). He sails away in the ''Sayna'' to find the vermin who killed her and avenge her death. [[spoiler:Laterose]] could also be this to [[spoiler:Martin]], as her death casts a dark shadow over him for the rest of his life.

** However, contemporary accounts have Henry as more "mildly annoyed" than "tragically destroyed" by news of her death (see the Useful Notes page for more detail). He also began hunting for wife number four only days afterwards. He only retroactively began treating Jane Seymour as a Lost Lenore years later when it became obvious none of his following wives would produce another son.

* [[spoiler:Chiaki]] from ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' becomes this for [[spoiler:Izuru]]. After her death, he holds onto [[spoiler:her iconic hairpin]] in remembrance, and is motivated enough by a combination of his [[spoiler:subconsciously-retained]] love for her and her dying words to him to start moving against [[BigBad Junko]]. The GrandFinale shows he still mourns her, more than two years later.

* ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'':
** Chisa's murder in the first episode is what drives Kyosuke off the deep end, with him vowing to eradicate despair and going on a bloody rampage to avenge her.

* ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' has [[spoiler: Peko Pekoyama, the Ultimate Swordsman]], who becomes this to [[spoiler: Fuyuhiko Kuzuryuu, the Ultimate Yakuza]], though this is far more clear only if you make his free time events.
** There's also [[spoiler:Chiaki Nanami]] for [[spoiler:Hajime Hinata]]. Her death leave him utterly crushed, and he constantly mentions how he'll never forget her. He's also reluctant to [[spoiler:go through with the shut-down of the Neo-World Program because it might cause him to lose his memories of her]]. In a twist of fate, ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' retroactively reveals she was ''also'' this for [[spoiler:Hajime's ''other'' persona, Izuru Kamukura, being the entire reason he masterminded the events of the game in the first place.]]

* This trope has become so common in ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' that it's become a running joke among fans that falling in love equals death.
** From [[VisualNovel/DanganRonpa the first game]], [[spoiler:Sayaka]] for Makoto. She was both [[spoiler:his first crush and the first student to die in the killing game]], and her death was what drove the message home to him that this ''was'' real. He even privately vowed to never forget her and carry the weight of her (and her killer's) deaths with him forever. In ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'', [[spoiler:he ''almost'' has another in Kyoko, but she fortunately survives, making him one of the few characters (and the only protagonist) in the franchise whose LoveInterest is still alive.]]

** Although she is probably alive somewhere, Tyrion's first wife Tysha is still a deep source of grief for him, as Tyrion poignantly indicates whenever she comes up.

** The way Tywin hold his wife Joanna's DeathByChildbirth against Tyrion and the fact he has not remarried seems to indicate this trope.
