* ''MacrossFrontier'' episode 20: [[spoiler:Sheryl sings a haunting remix of "Diamond Crevasse" as Michael and Alto defend a macronizing Klan from Vajra first stage drones. However they are flanked, and Michael [[FoeTossingCharge rushes back to defend the macronizing tube]]. He has the ThemeMusicPowerUp, he's defending the women he loves, he should win... but the music cuts off as one manages to dodge his bullets and impales him. He coughs up blood. It turns away, thinking him dead, but Michael, not dead yet, tackles it using his jetpack, and fills it with bullets. "Diamond Crevasse" restarts as it explodes, but it blows a hole in the ship's hull in its death throes... the song continues, but Michael barely has time to tell Klan that he ''does'' indeed like her back, and might indeed love her, before he is blown into space as the rest of the main characters scream his name, all as the slow music reaches a crescendo... Michael flew the blue plane. ''He deserved better'']]
* MacrossFrontier, one episode later [[spoiler: Ranka]] leaves Alto, her friends, and her bright future behind to the lonely melody and lyrics of Ao no Ete-ru (translated: "I'll give you one of my names, did you take care of it? May I have a word from you, that isn't goodbye...").

* The ending of the movies is this, with [[spoiler: Ranka desperately telling a comatose Sheryl to hold on, hoping against hope that Alto [[HesJustHiding will come back]], because she just knows that if Alto does, [[SleepingBeauty Sheryl will wake up]]. She's ever the optimist, but what makes it even sadder is that the ending was a [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat multimegaton explosion]] on Alto's position which almost seems to be what triggers Sheryl's collapse and coma, and all just after [[LoveTriangle Alto finally chose Sheryl]]: The explosion [[KilledMidsentence cut him off]] right in the middle of telling her: [[DyingDeclarationOfLove "I love you."]]]]
