* Discussed by Anne Elliot in ''{{Persuasion}}'' where she claims it's a behavior particular to women, and that while men and women are equally capable of love, only women will keep loving after all hope is gone. [[spoiler: Turns out that she's wrong about that, and her true love Captain Wentworth was still carrying the torch for her even though he didn't think she cared about him.]] * ASongOfIceAndFire has plenty. King Robert had always loved Lyanna Stark even after her death, but he never really knew her entirely. His wife Cersei was in love with Rhaegar Targaryen, whom Robert killed, but Rhaegar was really into Lyanna. Then there's Petyr Baelish, who has always been in love with Catelyn Stark, [[spoiler: and he started a massive war that tears the seven kingdoms apart, as his way of lashing out to the world when he lost her to Brandon Stark]].

If it's requited, it's not an example of the trope.
* Series/{{Supernatural}}: In a weird way, Sam's love for Jess. It was very much requited when she was alive, but he never stopped loving her after her death.

* {{CLAMP}} is somewhat famous for this. It is even outright stated that every person is the same, no matter what world they are in. So, technically, no matter how many times they are reborn, their love will still be unrequited:

*** Hinted at with her daughter Tomoyo's love for Sakura, which lasts through the series, even after Sakura has hooked up with Syaoran. Even TsubasaReservoirChronicle's Tomoyo can't help obsessing over a Sakura she just met. ** ''XXXHolic'': [[spoiler: ''at least'' four people seem to nurse unrequited feelings for Watanuki, who himself is eternally waiting for Yuuko. The Zashiki Warashi maintains a friendly relationship with him but he doesn't seem to reciprocate her feelings, Himawari gets married but still seems to have lingering sentiment towards him (even her husband seems to like him), and Doumeki and Kohane marry each other, seemingly for the purpose of producing offspring who will keep him from being lonely.]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ddz7MZCMG8 "Watching You Watching Him"]] has this twice over. The singer loves the subject, who loves a third person, who doesn't love her. -->I love you \\ From the bottom of my heart \\ And that's not gonna' change \\ But things look grim \\ When I am watching you watch him\\

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': Ross and Rachel's feelings only ever surface when they ''can't'' have each other. In the entire show they are together for ''one'' season, during which they fight unhappily and drive each other away. They spend the other nine seasons pining but doing nothing.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', [[spoiler:Snape is in love with Lily through their childhood and Hogwarts years. Lily refused to associate herself with him after he broke all trust she had in him. Lily ended up with Sirius' archnemesis and rival, James Potter, whom had taken down his ego since the encounter. They had a child named Harry, then they died and Harry grew up and 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 since childhood as he demonstrated with his Patronus causing [[TearJerker Dumbledore to tear up]]. "After all this time?" "Always."]]

* ''FiveCentimetersPerSecond'' got backlash because the unrequited love ultimately did not last forever, with Creator/MakotoShinkai's intent to depict Takaki's maturation and his ability to move on, ending his obsessing over Akari.
