** This trope has been zigzagged a lot with regards to the Doctor and Clara Oswald (WordOfGod, specifically Creator/PeterCapaldi, is that their relationship was a romance, just not a standard one). To explain in detail would turn this into a copy of the [[Characters/DoctorWhoRevivalSeriesCompanionsClaraOswald character page for Clara]], so best to just go there.

* James T. Kirk has another tragic example in the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "The City On The Edge Of Forever." Kirk is sent back to [[TheGreatDepression Clutch Plague]] [[BigApplesauce New York City]] through a NegativeSpaceWedgie TimePortal. There, he meets and falls in love with Edith Keeler, a kind-hearted, visionary shelter worker. The tragedy is that unless Keeler dies, [[GodwinsLawOfTimeTravel the Nazis will win World War II]] and Starfleet will never exist. The punch is all the worse in the end, as Kirk has to personally intercede to prevent Dr. [=McCoy=] from saving Keeler's life.

A strangely common subtrope involves one lover attempting to use time-travel in order to save their couple from some kind of fate, [[TheDeterminator repeating the same series of events for what is often implied to be hundreds or even thousands of times without giving up]], all in the name of love.

* [[PlayingWithATrope Played with in]] ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', where [[spoiler: the Second Generation Characters are all time travelers [[TimeTravelEscape who fled from a]] BadFuture where [[OmnicidalManiac Grima destroyed the world]]. Now for the most part, they cannot fall in love with the First Generation characters, averting this trope... until you realize they can fall for [[PlayerCharacter the Avatar]], who is a friend of the First Generation characters and a potential parent of the kids in his/her own right. And to top it all off, such a pairing will give these future children their own KidFromTheFuture: Morgan (who can also be the future kids' [[PromotionToParent little sibling]]). In this case though, none of them actually want to go back to their original BadFuture -- and even if they ''did'' want to return, that's a feat which may be impossible to do anyways since Grima trashed everything. [[note]](Though one DLC in FireEmblemFates has [[PhysicalGod Good Anankos]] managing [[WorldHealingWave to fix the lands themselves]], so who knows now.)[[/note]].]] The fandom [[InternetBackdraft is split]] on whether this is a good move story/gameplay wise or a ''really'' {{squick}}y deal, since [[spoiler:while the future kids are close to the Avatar's age (in fact, some are implied to be actually ''older'' than some of the potential First-Gen spouses), they are marrying someone who was at least two decades their senior in their original timeline, while their "current day" selves haven't even been born yet (with the exception of Lucina, and she's still only an infant)]].
