* In the (somewhat (in?)famous TearJerker) ending of the anime version of ''ChronoCrusade'', Chrono and Rosette's bodies are found sitting on a bench together, their [[IntertwinedFingers hands clasped]] and [[GoOutWithASmile smiling peacefully]]. They're buried together in a grave with a single headstone. Also, Rosette and Joshua met Chrono when they found him sleeping in the tomb of Mary Magdalene, although that's a bit of a variation since he was actually alive.

* [[MultipleEndings One]] of the endings of ''VisualNovel/SayanoUta'' has [[spoiler:Saya and Fuminori]] end up like this. It is absolutely [[TearJerker heartwrenching]], the way that [[spoiler:Saya ignores her wounds (with Kouji still repeatedly delivering blows as she does so) and drags herself over to Fuminori's corpse so she can embrace him before slipping away herself.]]
* Saber and Shirou finally get a proper happy ending in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'''s [[UpdatedRerelease Realta Nua's]] [[RevisedEnding bonus ending of]] Fate. [[GuideDangIt To unlock it, you have to]] [[HundredPercentCompletion die every way possible, and finish all three routes, and get all five endings]]... but by doing so, you get what might well be the most [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] scene in the whole game. Whether you like or dislike that Shirou and Saber's route was denied an alternate ending (unlike with "Unlimited Blade Works" or "Heaven's Feel" which gave genuine happy endings that didn't require this trope) this new ending manages to combine IWillWaitForYou, DiedHappilyEverAfter and Together in Death for an undeniably impressive effect.
* One of the ending in GirlsLove VisualNovel ''VisualNovel/AkaiIto'' had [[spoiler:Kei and Sakuya replacing Yumei in being the Ohashira, after Kei was fatally wounded by Nushi and Yumei decided that she can't live without her]].

* In just one of the many TearJerker moments of ''WesternAnimation/TheAnimalsOfFarthingWood'', this happens to [[spoiler:the charming old hedgehog couple as they're crossing the motorway. The noise of the traffic proves too much for Mr. Hedgehog and he freezes in fear, and while Mrs. Hedgehog has time to escape the path of the oncoming lorry, she refuses to leave her husband behind.]]

** In ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight Arkham Knight]]'', [[spoiler:this is the implied fate of Mr. Freeze and [[TheLostLenore Nora]] in the ''Aeason of Infamy'' DLC, Nora is kidnapped by the militia as a bargaining chip against Freeze and is kept out of cryogenic stasis so long that she woke up. After Batman rescues her, she tells Freeze that she doesn't want him to keep trying to cure her disease if it's going to cost him his sanity, and she'd rather live out the few remaining days she has left. The two then leave Gotham and Freeze is shown shutting off his PoweredArmor that keeps his body at the sub-zero temperature he needs to stay alive, implying he plans to die with her]].

* ''CrossingJordan'' with a couple that's always arguing about something. Lily and Bug were assigned to their case. The reconstruction has the argument start small(about cat food), slowly mutates into vase throwing, hand-to-hand combat up the stairs, one of them pushing the other over the rails, then falling themselves because of a falling bookshelf. Turns out the book shelf was falling, and they accidentally died from the fall trying to save each other.
* HenpeckedHusband Jack Duckworth's final scene in ''CoronationStreet'' featured the return of Vera Duckworth, who had died two years earlier, and they dance away together.

* ''ForeverKnight'' heavily implied this with Nick and Natalie at the end. Nick can't stop drinking and drains Nat, then is depressed and asks Lacroix to stake him. We only see the stake being raised, followed by CueTheSun, but the implication is obvious.
