* In ''Literature/{{Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows}}'', it turns out Severus Snape was Lily Evans's UnluckyChildhoodFriend, and the guilt and grief he felt over her death ( which he partially ''caused'', during his time as a Death Eater) motivated him for the rest of his life.

* A lot of {{Kamelot}} songs are about this trope, for instance the album Epica features a love story which ends with the subject of the singer's love songs early in the album committing suicide, and the singer/main character of the songs goes into a deep mourning, which even spills over into their next album.

* ''Series/ThePunisher2017'':
**Frank Castle, obviously, as he's mourning the loss of his family
**In a temporary example, Karen Page has visibly never recovered from [[spoiler:Matt's recent "death" in the destruction of Midland Circle at the climax of ''Series/TheDefenders2017''. She's taken up drinking, keeps a photograph of herself celebrating St. Patrick's Day with Matt and Foggy on a table where she has to look at it when she sits on the couch; and her decision to provoke Lewis Wilson seems to be out of a desperate need to get an adrenaline high to take her mind off the pain]].

* Martin Riggs cranks this trope UpToEleven in the original ''Film/LethalWeapon''. He gets better in the sequels, though.

* ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys''. Hercules felt this way about his wife, Deianeira, who had been murdered by Hera. In one episode he politely turned down the [[AllAmazonsWantHercules proposition of a band of Amazons]], saying he was still in love with his wife. [[spoiler:He does eventually get a SecondLove in the form a Ceryneian Hind named Serena [[note]]after he [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming receives Deianeira's blessing to find love again]][[/note]], but [[StuffedIntoTheFridge Ares kills her]], [[CartwrightCurse putting this trope back in play]]]].

* [[PlayingWithATrope Sort of played with]] in the backstory for Dr. Noonien Soong in ''[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS7E9Inheritance Star Trek: The Next Generation]].'' When his wife, Juliana, died, he created an android replica of her. Although the android Juliana had the memories of (and believed herself to be) the original, Noonien ultimately realized it was not the same as actually having his wife back and retreated into his research out of guilt. [[TomatoInTheMirror Unaware]] of her ReplacementGoldfish status and thinking Noonien was simply becoming MarriedToTheJob, the android Juliana left Noonien, and he spent the rest of his life playing this trope straight.

* Unlike most superhero based stories, ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' actually averts this. Thor, once he regains his memories, does grieve for Lily, does miss her and quite clearly a large part of him still loves her. That said, he's still in love with Jane and has made peace with the fact that Lily's dead and gone. This is rather complicated by the persistent hints that she's neither dead, nor gone.

* ''Fanfic/AManOfIron'': In Tywin's first POV chapter, it's shown this is the case regarding his late wife. The first thing he does when he wakes up each morning is look to her side of the bed, [[TearJerker in the hope she might be there this time.]]
