* Queen Victoria put herself into deep mourning upon her consort Albert's death in 1861. It was customary for the bereaved to seclude themselves and wear black for a few months. But Victoria wasn't even seen in public again for nearly two years afterward. She also wore black for the rest of her life. Even the contemporary British population, which had an unhealthy fascination with death, felt weirded out by her behavior.

* You would never expect to find this trope in a first-person shooter, but ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'' ends with the realization that there has been a romance brewing in this series since the first game, and Cortana becomes this for the Master Chief in the end. Then ''VideoGames/Halo5Guardians'' reveals that [[spoiler:Cortana survived and has developed the desire to rule over the galaxy as a benevolent tyrant. Chief is as angry and heartbroken about this as a stoic killing machine can be.]]

* Nora Fries from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', whose demise drove her husband Victor Fries to become the villainous Mr Freeze. This backstory proved so effective that was adopted as the official origin of Mr Freeze, making Nora a CanonImmigrant to TheDCU.

* Mary Magdalene from ''ChronoCrusade'' is TheLostLenore of not just [[FailureKnight Chrono]] (of whom she's also the Gwen Stacy), but also Father Remington. Nearly every twist and turn of this trope is played out in the manga--Chrono meets Rosette and he can't help but be reminded of Mary (and she's hinted to even be a reincarnation of her in the anime), it ends up playing out as a sort of love triangle (in the anime he tells Mary's ghost mournfully that "Rosette's covering your place in my heart"), she's a major driving force behind Chrono's character development, and at one point in the manga Chrono and Remington even end up in a duel where Remington seems to take out his anger over Mary's death on Chrono.

* Their son, Henry VIII, also experienced this. Although he did remarry three more times after her passing, he spent the rest of his life mourning his third wife Jane Seymour. She was the only wife of his to have died naturally while they were still married. She was also the only wife of his to give him the son he had always desired.
* Creator/ClarkGable married five times throughout his life; but he never stopped mourning for his third spouse and film costar Carole Lombard, to whom he was ''very'' HappilyMarried before she died in a plane crash in 1942.

* Roger's ex-girlfriend April in {{Theatre/Rent}} is undoubtedly a Lost Lenore, as his entire angst over her suicide and reveal that they've got AIDS is what keeps him locked in the apartment for the better part of a year and prevents him from pursuing a proper relationship with Mimi. The film version even goes as far as including a [[HappierHomeMovie happier home movie]] of Roger and April.
