** ComicBook/BoosterGold and the ComicBook/BlueBeetle, though in some continuities, the new Beetle serves as ReplacementGoldfish. Beetle's death makes Booster go from an egotistical, fame-seeking buffoon to wanting to genuinely be a heroic hero who contributes something.
** Though HeGotBetter, GreenLantern Kyle Rayner's death in the ComicBook/BlackestNight story arc caused his close friend and colleague, Guy Gardner, to break down in tears for a moment before entirely giving in to his maddened rage and becoming a Red Lantern.

** Then there are Eren and Armin, whose relationship was far closer and more intense in the manga than in the anime. Armin, brilliant but physically weak, often doubted his self-worth in his DoomedHometown and in the physically-demanding soldier training he and Eren both went through. Eren saw his friend for the genius he was, and constantly put himself in harm's way to protect Armin - to the point of jumping into a Titan's mouth to save Armin, sacrificing his life in the process. Of course, HeGotBetter, but that moment where he watched helplessly as his best friend died for him changed Armin forever. From then on, he started volunteering to come up with crazy strategies that had a habit of working; he saved the world far more effectively than even Eren did, just by trusting in his own strength like Eren had. But the truely tragic part of this friendship happens much later in the manga, when (big, BIG spoiler, seriously) [[spoiler: Armin gives up his own life so that Eren can defeat the Colossal Titan. He just saved the world, changing everyone's lives irrevocably...but the look on Eren's face shows just how shocked and heartbroken he is to lose his oldest and closest friend).
