** King Robert vocally mourns Lyanna Stark [[TheLostLenore long after her death]], but he never [[LovingAShadow really knew her]]. We don't ''really'' know much about how Lyanna felt, but it overall looks pretty unrequited.
** Robert's wife Cersei was in love with [[spoiler:Rhaegar Targaryen]] since she was a child. It was something of a PrecociousCrush and there's no indication he was ever even really aware of her. Cersei always hated Robert for [[spoiler:killing him in battle]]. (The fact that her ArrangedMarriage to Robert is abusive and horribly unhappy for her doesn't help matters.)

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' it slowly becomes apparent that [[TheSmartGuy Pearl]] was in love with [[PosthumousCharacter Rose Quartz]], even after she [[TheOneThatGotAway wound up with Greg]] and "[[OnlyMostlyDead died]]" [[DeathByChildbirth giving birth]] to [[HalfHumanHybrid Steven]]. The episode "Mr. Greg" seems to have her finally getting over this, fourteen or so years after Rose became TheLostLenore.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons,'' Lurline was a character in an early episode who fell in love with Homer; though tempted, he ultimately turned her down and stayed with Marge. Many years later [[TheBusCameBack she returned]], with it shown that she married multiple times since her first appearance...with men who all [[ReplacementGoldfish bore a remarkable resemblance to Homer]].

* In ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'', Brainstorm has a ''serious'' case of this. He was in love with a fellow scientist named Quark, who died in a Decepticon prison camp before Brainstorm could ever tell him so. [[spoiler: Brainstorm then spent centuries figuring out paradox-free time travel in order to save Quark's life, and eventually scaled up his plan to "prevent the war altogether" - which would've erased himself from history.]]

* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', [[spoiler:Snape was in love with Lily through their childhood and Hogwarts years. Lily refused to associate herself with him after he broke all the trust she had in him. Lily instead ended up with his archnemesis and rival, James Potter, whom had taken down his ego since their last encounter. They had a child named Harry, then they died and Harry grew up to become a student of Snape, who treats Harry like shit because his dad is James… and because he's still angry and in love with Lily, long after her death, as he demonstrated with his Patronus, causing [[TearJerker Dumbledore to tear up]].]]
