From what I know, Amidala is this to Anakin/Darth Vader, right? I mean, even though she died at the end of Revenge of the Sith, Vader never really got over that. Can anyone confirm this? And if it's an example, where should it go, considering the reaction is only seen in the old Expanded Universe? (IIRC the movie doesn't show how Vader copes with that, because all we see of him after Obi-Wan leaves him for dead is him getting fitted with cybernetics and his iconic black suit)

Is there a platonic version of a trope? I can think of quite a few stories that have someone motivated or defined by their mourning over a friend's death, but the trope page specifies a love interest.

Specifically asking about friend relationships: I know there are a bunch of these for various types of family deaths.

This trope page has an impressive number of zero-context examples. I'm not schooled enough in all the relevant works to fill them in, but if someone is, he'd be doing a service. Also, should we remove or comment out the current ZCE entries?

Wouldn't Spottedleaf from Warrior Cats count as a Lost Lenore? She does way more in death than she does in life.

Adrian Monk's dead wife Trudy is definitely a Lost Lenore.

One Piece - Should Kuina be considered Zoro/Zolo's Lost Lenore?

I removed an "example" from Manga and Anime which only said "and recently Alma". I don't know...

Is there a reason Lalah Sune isn't on here? I don't want to add her only to find out that she's been removed five times already.

This example was added without a work title.

  • Mary Magdalene is The Lost Lenore of not just Chrono (of whom she's also the Gwen Stacy), but also Father Remington. Nearly every twist and turn of this trope is played out in the manga—Chrono meets Rosette and he can't help but be reminded of Mary (and she's hinted to even be a reincarnation of her in the anime), it ends up playing out as a sort of love triangle (in the anime he tells Mary's ghost mournfully that "Rosette's covering your place in my heart"), she's a major driving force behind Chrono's character development, and at one point in the manga Chrono and Remington even end up in a duel where Remington seems to take out his anger over Mary's death on Chrono.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
