* Defied in ''[[Manga/{{Superior}} Superior Cross]]''. Umberto abandoned his wife when she was pregnant due to a deal he made with the townspeople [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou to protect their unborn child from]] HalfBreedDiscrimination. Years later, he meets his granddaughter, [[spoiler:Angelica]], and learns that his wife had died several years ago. At the end of the chapter, he's talking to a painting of his wife and mentions that he'll be with her soon, but finds that he actually wants to keep on living (with her spirit then showing up and telling him that she's fine waiting for him). [[spoiler: He's still alive [[TimeSkip four years]] later at Angelica's wedding.]]

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'': According to the tribute manga for the second movie, Precia was reunited with her daughter Alicia in heaven. Rather perplexing since, at the time of her death, she wasn't [[EvilMatriarch the sort]] [[AbusiveParents of person]] you'd expect to go to heaven.

** [[spoiler:[[PapaWolf Minato]] and [[MamaBear Kushina]]]] die after [[BattleCouple they protect]] their son and Konoha from [[spoiler:The Kyuubi]].
** Zabuza is fatally injured after pulling an epic TakingYouWithMe on [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Gato]]. He requests that Kakashi bring him to his BattleButler, Haku - who earlier performed TakingTheBullet for him - and dies with Haku by his side, openly expressing a desire to go to the same afterlife as his one precious person. Kakashi tells Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke that he openly believes this wish was indeed granted.

* Nearly every screen version of ''{{Wuthering Heights}}'' shows Heathcliff and Cathy's spirits reunited on the moors at the end a precedent set by the classic 1939 version, which was originally just going to conclude with a shot of Heathcliff's corpse, but ended up with a more romantic {{Focus Group Ending}} instead. The various TV adaptations also tend to end this way (see under "Live-Action TV").



* ''Literature/WutheringHeights''. When Linton is buried next to Catherine, [[LoveMakesYouCrazy Heathcliff]] takes the opportunity to open her coffin and look at her. He bribes the sexton to ensure that he'll be buried on her other side when he dies and knocks out that side of her coffin so they can be sealed in together. Then he wastes away and starves himself to death, whether with the specific intent of killing himself or just because all he cares about is dying so he can be with Catherine.

* In TheSeventies, Creator/YukioMishima tried to pull a pro-ImperialJapan coup with his personal army (the ''Tatenokai''), and when this failed he went through {{seppuku}}. His NumberTwo, Masakatsu Morita, had already said he was willing to follow Mishima in death; predictably, once Mishima was dead, he commited {{seppuku}} as well.

** [[spoiler:In the final chapters of the Alvarez Empire arc, Zeref Dragneel and Mavis Vermilion confess that, despite ''everything'' that has happened between them, they still love each other. This contradiction empowers the One Magic enough to lift both their curses, killing them both. They die in each other's arms, happy, at peace, and finally allowed to spend an eternity together in the afterlife]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'': In the abandoned town of Minefield, you can find in one house a pair of skeletons lying on a bed cuddling, with some syringes of Med-X (basically the ''Fallout'' universe's equivalent of morphine) on the bedside cabinets. Where it goes from a TearJerker to outright unsettling is the next-door room, which is obviously a child's bedroom, there is no child-sized skeleton to be found. Where did the kid go? [[FridgeHorror What did the parents do?]]

* Subverted in ''WeissKreuz'': when Tot is fatally stabbed, Nagi has a telekinetic meltdown which destroys the house they're in and apparently kills him. Seeing the two lying next to one another in the wreckage, Yoji moves Nagi's hand to rest on top of Tot's in a Together in Death pose. After the surviving cast members have left, however, Tot gets up... and in another episode or two, Nagi shows up in perfect health and the incident is never mentioned again.

* In the 1987 Japanese film adaptation of UsefulNotes/{{Hachiko}}'s story, the ending implies that Hachiko and his owner reunited in the afterlife. The 2009 American version also has a similar implication, showing that as Hachi passes away, he finally sees his owner walk out of the train station to reunite with him.
