* ''MaiOtome'': When Arika Yumemiya finally meets her [[spoiler: long-dead]] [[MissingMom mother]] [[spoiler: (revived to participate in [[MagnificentBastard Grand Duke Nagi's]] [[EvilPlan plan to bring down the Otome]])]], she thinks she'd have a lot to say, but after introducing herself ([[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments "Look, mom! I'm an Otome! Doesn't it suit me?"]]), she finds she can't bring herself to say the rest. Queen Mashiro looks on and, knowing that [[spoiler: they must destroy Lena to free the Otome]], admonishes herself that she promised she wouldn't cry anymore. Of course, she [[TearJerker and the audience]] have trouble keeping that promise. Showing Arika [[spoiler: finally embracing her mother for one first and last moment]] doesn't help that promise, either...

* In ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'', this occurred on the very same chapter / episode of the ''Goddesses Arc'': [[TearJerker/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows FLAG 189 / Episode 12]]. [[spoiler:[[TheGenericGirl Chihiro]], despite having made a cheerful proclamation at the beginning of her band's performance, completely breaks down to tears at the end of the concert, after having sung a song that was completely about Keima.]]

* After Satoko of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' lost her parents, she cried easily and became overly reliant on her big brother Satoshi. After he disappeared under mysterious circumstances, Satoko convinced herself that he had run away because she was too much of a burden for him, and she resolved never to cry or depend on others in the hope that Satoshi might return one day. This is the reason she gives for refusing to cry even when [[spoiler: she's being tortured to death by the maddened Shion, who actually calls her out on her crybaby past while torturing her]]. For the record, Satoko is still just a prepubescent girl when this happens.

* Laure from ''Literature/LittleHouseInThePrairie'' was raised with the notion that only babies cry. Even at six year olds she tried her best not to cry. When characters do cry in the series often times they try to avoid it.

* ''VideoGame/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth'' has a particularly heart-rending example in the third case, when a young [[spoiler: Kay Faraday]] has to face the death of [[spoiler: her father.]] She explains that she'd made a promise to him never to cry, even as tears start appearing in the corners of her eyes. She is quickly reduced to a sobbing wail afterwards.
