* Mr. Freeze in ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' devotes his life to curing his wife Nora's terminal disease. His use of his company's cryogenic technology without their permission led to the circumstances that made him Mr. Freeze in the first place. And when he finally does find a means to cure her in the Lazarus Pit, [[CameBackWrong his impatience twists her into the evil Lazara]].
** And in some versions of the story, Batman reminds him that she's not even his wife- just a cryogenically frozen woman he grew obsessed with.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'', the common "solution" to the [[AndIMustScream Undead]] [[CameBackWrong Curse]] - constantly acquire souls to stave off Hollowing - can be viewed as this. Indeed, possessing a tangible goal, which can include chasing a tragic dream, is implied to be the ''only'' known way to permanently keep an Undead from Hollowing.

* ''Film/OnceUponATimeInTheWest'': Railroad Tycoon Morton desperately wishes to see his railway reach the Pacific Ocean before the tuberculosis that has crippled him fully claims his lungs and his life, so much so that he enlists the aid of a monster like Frank to 'clear the track' and eliminate any problems they find in the way (thus jump-starting the plot). Frank makes some grim comments about the progression of Morton's disease as they've crossed the country, and given Morton's pitiably feeble state it seems doubtful he'd ever make to the ocean [[spoiler:even if he weren't ultimately killed in a shootout at the end.]]

** An ongoing theme of the series is the Doctor as a "lonely angel." Due to his near-immortality and dangerous lifestyle, he is never able to actually have a "happy ending", whether that be settling down with any of the companions he'd fallen in love with or married over the millennia, or simply living a quiet retirement (he tries, but it never takes).

There are hints of him eventually settling down as a "curator" in the 50th anniversary, but given when it happened, the doctor's retirement is still a LONG way off.

* Fate Testarossa's only wish in the first season of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' was to have her mother be the happy, smiling woman she remembered from her early childhood. [[spoiler:Then she learns that in those memories, Precia was never smiling at ''her'', but at Alicia Testarossa, the daughter whose death drove Precia mad and drove her to create a [[CloningBlues clone]] of her as a ReplacementGoldfish. Unfortunately, even with Alicia's memories, Fate was not--and could never be--Alicia, a fact which Precia ''hated'' her for. Fortunately, she ends up getting HappilyAdopted by Lindy, [[GoodParents who's perfectly willing to give her the motherly love she craved]].]]
