* ''{{Duckman}}'' had Duckman's beloved wife Beatrice, who died before the show started, but appears in a few flashbacks. Unlike literally ''every other woman Duckman ever met'', with Beatrice, he was a ChivalrousPervert rather than TheHedonist than he is in the series itself. Even the OTHER characters remark on how much his wife had actually meant to Duckman. [[spoiler: the series finale ended on a cliffhanger revealing that she was still alive]]. This is at it's most notable when Duckman is haunted by dozens if alternate universe versions of himself, and is visited by a version of himself from his wedding day decades prior.
--> '''Past!Duckman''': Am I doing the right thing marrying Beatrice? Do we grow old together?
--> '''Duckman''': ...you're going to love her until the day you die.
--> '''Past!Duckman''': ...maybe I dont need to know anything but that.

* It seems that the standard response to death of lovers in ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'' is to cause disasters: Ame-onna (husband died at sea) [[FaceMonsterTurn turns into an oni]] and takes other demons' life force to protect the bridge where she waits for her husband. Sakura-no-sei (fiancé murdered) turns the entire forest she lives in into a frozen wasteland. Tamamo no Mae (wife struck by lightning) mourns his beloved as it rains ''seven'' days in a row.

* Subverted by ''Franchise/DragonAge'' with Varric and Bianca: in ''VideoGame/DragonAge2'', it's told that Varric's [[ICallItVera crossbow Bianca]], which he consistently [[CargoShip talks about as if they're in a relationship]], is named for the person who helped create it... and that Varric, a gregarious storyteller known for [[BlatantLies exaggerating or fabricating whatever he feels like]], [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness refuses to say any more about the story]] behind Bianca's creation. [[spoiler:In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', the real Bianca is shown to be alive and well, and that she and Varric are ''still in communication somewhat regularly'': she's just in an ArrangedMarriage to someone else, so they can't be seen together. Or her family will send assassins.]]

* [[MeaningfulName Annabell Leigh]] for Humbert Humbert in ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'', complete with several references to the original poem. The reason H.H has his "[[{{Lolicon}} tastes]]" is his relationship with her [[ShoutOut when he was a child and she was a child]], which ended in the trope. He falls for Lolita because [[ReplacementGoldfish she looks so much like Annabell]].

Added DiffLines:

* Present in ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'', although not for the main character. The King of Atlantis lost his wife when she was called to be used as a vessel for the Heart of Atlantis. Afterwards he hid it beneath the city, out of fear that his daughter would suffer the same fate. [[spoiler: She does but she gets better]].


Added DiffLines:

* Some adaptations of ''Theatre/KingLear'' play this up. In the original text, Lear's dead wife is only given a passing mention, but some productions emphasise that his deteriorating sanity was started by her death. At least one gave a GenderFlip to The Fool and portrayed the character as a hallucination of the wife.
