Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })You might be the Last Of Your Kind or someone else made a Heroic Sacrifice for you or you lived through a Restricted Rescue Operation, but whatever the reason, you're going to feel a massive sense of guilt. An easy way to generate Angst. Expect this to occur when the Mary Sue dies or a husband survives the death of his family. Practically a guarantee in cases of Death by Childbirth, or when one is a Sole Survivor.
Can also lead to the victim becoming a Death Seeker or Failure Knight. May cause Bad Dreams, Drowning My Sorrows, and various other ways to cope, while trusted friends and/or professionals plead with him to realize that he has nothing to beat himself up about. Contrast You Should Have Died Instead, where one survivor tries to evoke Survivor Guilt in another. Sometimes (although not always), Who Wants to Live Forever? is an extreme case where an immortal character among a mortal community feels this.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Truth in Television: Survivor's Guilt is a common symptom of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, especially among suicide witnesses.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica:
Madoka was so horrified about Mami's death that after her death, Madoka went to her empty house and cried, saying "I'm sorry for being so weak."
Taken Up to Eleven with Homura. She saw her best friend die to protect her, and prayed that she was the one to die instead of her. She went back in time and saw it over and over again, so it's no doubt she felt this again at some point.
Kyoko has a severe case of this. Her wish inadvertently caused her father, who was a priest, to go crazy and believe she was a witch who manipulated people into false beliefs. He started to fall into depression, losing faith and drowning in alcohol, end up murdering her entire family and committing suicide.

Averted with Baron Harkonnen in Dune, where Leto tries to poison Harkonnen with a gas in a fake tooth and ends up taking out everyone in the room except for Harkonnen (he managed to evade it at the last second), and his immediate reaction is joy that he survived, and everyone else is dead.

Terry Sanders Jr. in Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team has it particularly bad: He earned the nickname "Shinigami" ("The Team-Killer" in the English dub, Bowdlerised to "The Reaper" for the daytime broadcast) because every team he was a part of would get wiped out save for him on their third mission together.

Sleepless Domain:
Undine would feel this just from being the only one of her Magical Girl team, Team Alchemical, to survive a monster fight with her powers intact. However, the matter is compounded when Undine sees the "Purple One", a strange shadowy girl who seems to be responsible and also have a personal grudge against Undine. Undine is thus driven to discover anything she can about this girl and why her friends had to suffer because of her. On top of that, the reason she survived is because her team's leader, Tessa, sacrificed her magic to heal her.
Tessa, meanwhile, feels this because an argument with the other members of Team Alchemical prompted her to not patrol with them that night. When she went out anyway, she arrived at the battle too late to save anyone but Undine, who was at death's door and trying to give Tessa a rousing speech to stay strong. The experience leaves Tessa a Broken Bird who feels she doesn't deserve the praise she gets from fans of her Magical Girl escapades.
In chapter ten, Heartful Punch confesses to having gone through this herself with the deaths of her mother and grandparents. She's past the worst of it by the present day, but tells Undine that, for a long time, she blamed herself because, despite just being a newborn baby at the time, her birth caused her mother to lose her Magical Girl powers, which left her and her parents vulnerable to the attack that killed them to begin with.

Sunrider: Though he does a good job of hiding it at first, Kayto Shields feels a lot of guilt for “abandoning” his home planet Cera to a PACT invasion, even though he knows there was nothing his one ship could have done against a dreadnought that wiped out the rest of Cera’s space fleet with one salvo. In the second half of Mask of Arcadius he starts having nightmares of his little sister Maray, who was in Cera’s capital to see him off on the day of the invasion and was almost certainly killed when the PACT flagship Legion nuked the city from orbit.

In the Last Herald Mage series, Vanyel has a major case of this over the death of his True Love: not only is he heartbroken, he thinks he can never measure up to Tylendel, either as a new mage or in his aunt's affections (Tylendel was a sort of surrogate son for his aunt). He turns out to be quite wrong on both counts.

Grisaiano Kajitsu: This trope combined with Sole Survivor is the core of Amane Suou's trauma both due to the loss of her friends in a terrible accident in which she survived, and the victimization she suffered from the angry and sorrowful relatives of the dead and the cruel gossipers who believe that her survival was due to her heartlessly engaging in No Party Like a Donner Party to survive.

In the iOS game Starbase Orion (a port of Master of Orion), two of the leaders you can hire have this as their backstory. Colonel Hanifer is a human starship commander and the only survivor of humanity's first extrasolar battle. Naturally, he feels guilty about being the only one to make it out. He increases damage resistance for all ships in his fleet. Governor Fve Bgeeep is a rabbit-like alien whose homeworld was attacked and his race destroyed while he was stuck on an unarmed asteroid tug. Being the Last of His Kind, Fve Bgeeep has become extremely but Properly Paranoid. Any planet to which he is assigned cannot be starved into submission (obviously, he has food stockpiled), and no enemy spy remains undetected in the system. Also, the starbase in the system is converted into an extremely-powerful one called "Fve Bgeeep's Burrow" (it has 20 plasma cannons, among other defenses, while you can normally put no more than a dozen turrets on a normal starbase).

Harmony Smurf in The Smurfs story "Smurphony In C" (and its Animated Adaptation) feels guilty to be the only surviving Smurf after he accidentally caused what appeared to be his fellow Smurfs' deaths with the turlisiphone (shazalakazoo in the cartoon show) and, finding that there is no cure for the death sleep that he put them into, kicks the magical instrument into the fire and then proceeds to play a final farewell dirge. Fortunately with the destruction of the magical instrument, Harmony was able to revive his fellow Smurfs by playing music from his own trumpet.

Dragon Age:
This shows up a few times in Dragon Age: Origins. The mind reading Guardian of the Ashes of Andraste reveals that Alistair feels this way about surviving Ostagar. Alistair straight up admits that he thinks everything would have been better if he had shielded Duncan from the killing blow and died in his place. The Sloth Demon of the Fade Dream even invokes this to keep Wynne imprisoned.
Both Hawke and their mother will express this at least to a point in Dragon Age II following the death of one of the younger siblings in the prologue. How it gets expressed depends on which one dies, but there's no way to save them both. If the surviving twin dies at the end of Act 1, it just gets worse. Hawke alone will also have this going on by the end of Act 2, following their mother's murder, which they arrived too late to prevent.
In the same game, Merrill. Depending on whether or not your Warden from the first game was Dalish, she lost one or two of her closest friends to a cursed Magic Mirror - and even if one of them became a Warden, they haven't seen each other since. Her arc consists of her struggle to fix the mirror and get something good out of it (though very dangerous means), and she admits that she still sees their faces in crowds sometimes. It gets worse in Act 3 - she not only loses her teacher, but possibly her entire clan.
If Hawke's sister Bethany survives the prologue but dies at the end of Act 1 in Dragon Age II, Varric will evince a bit of this in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Taking him in the party to the Storm Coast and letting him fight the darkspawn above ground will cause him to reminisce about the incident in a way which makes it clear that he never quite got over the loss - which, at this point, was ten years ago - nor entirely stopped blaming himself for it.

In High School D×D, Yuto Kiba is the sole survivor of the "Holy Sword Project", an initiative by the Church to create artificial Holy Sword users by performing brutal experiments on children. The Church planned to execute all the children after the experiment failed, but Kiba's friends sacrificed themselves to allow him to escape, saddling him with a sizable guilt complex.

All over the place in Tokyo Ghoul. Humans and Ghouls alike suffer from this, having to watch the people they care about dying one after another while they continue to survive.
Amon suffers from multiple cases of it, having a tendency to survive while those he cares about die around him. Over the course of his life, he survived an accident that took his parents, survived an Orphanage of Fear where his adoptive father ate the other children, and has seen more than his fair share of comrades (including his beloved mentor) die.
In the Prequel Jack, Taishi and Aki both struggle with this after Lantern kills their friends. Aki believes she's being punished for her delinquent behavior, while Taishi swears revenge.
Discussed by Yomo, who explains to Touka that it is the duty of the survivors to continue living with their pain.

Smax from Top 10. The entire reason he left his home, and went as far away as Precinct 10, was that he couldn't save a little girl from a dragon. Her handprint was permanently burned onto his chest, which didn't exactly help matters.

Most of the characters in The Walking Dead have varying degrees of this.
Part of Rick's is because he and Carl ran away from The Governor's assault on the jail after he saw Lori murdered.
Andrea has it because her former lover Dale is dead and she never told him that she'd fallen in love with him.

In Tales of Berseria, it's revealed that Artorius suffers from this trope. When the party ends up in the Earthen Historia, they learn that Arthur's teacher died for his sake and he nearly gave up on living until he met Velvet's sister Celica. When the second Scarlet Night happens, his Survivor's Guilt gets kicked up again as he loses both his wife and his unborn child.

Fire Emblem:
Cain in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. He's the Sole Survivor of the knights that King Cornelius took to fight Medeus; though his survivor's guilt isn't portrayed well in the first game, in the Shadow Dragon remake he is clearly very distressed over the incident.
Oifey takes it really hard in Genealogy of the Holy War after unknowingly leaving Sigurd and the rest of his army to die
Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade:
Fiora is traumatised after losing her whole squad of Pegasus Knights, though her sister Florina quickly helps her snap out of the worse part of it. She still has traces of said guilt in her supports with others, though.
Harken is the only survivor of Elbert's knights. He becomes first a Death Seeker and then a Failure Knight (after finding Eliwood) as a result.
Fire Emblem Awakening:
Cordelia's first appearance has her a traumatized wreck after a squad of her fellow knights sacrifice their lives so she can escape a Plegian ambush. This stays with her all throughout the game, with some of her pre-battle quotes and her supports with the Avatar making reference to it.
This factors heavily into Lon'qu's... difficulties around women. His childhood friend Ke'ri was killed right before his eyes, while she was protecting him from bandits. The event deeply traumatized him - not helped by the fact that her parents blamed Lon'qu for her death - and left him believing that any woman who got too close to him would eventually die as well.
Two of the main Lords in Fire Emblem: Three Houses suffer quite badly from this, to the point where if the player does not side with them, they end up completely losing themselves to madness. Edelgard was the only one of her eleven siblings to survive a series of gruesome Crest experiments, and her recurring nightmares about their suffering are a major reason why she's willing to resort to extreme methods in order to overthrow the very system she sees as responsible for their deaths. Dimitri was the only survivor of an assassination that killed numerous royals and nobles, including his parents, and resulted in the near-genocide of the natives of Duscur. As such, he feels a relentless need to take revenge for all these deaths, to the point where after the Time Skip, he's suffering from hallucinations of the deceased begging him to avenge them.

It comes back again in Avengers: Age of Ultron: his nightmare is that he will be left to watch as his fellow Avengers die. This makes the end of Avengers: Infinity War particularly cruel: Tony and Nebula are the only ones left standing on Titan, as everyone else who fought with them crumbles to dust. Plus, Tony has no way of knowing how many of the other Avengers are left alive because he's far away from Earth's communications network. His emotional state in Avengers: Endgame is likely to be...turbulent.

Many of the Runaways suffer from this, to varying degrees:
Nico Minoru used to have survivor's guilt over the death of former leader Alex Wilder (who was also her boyfriend), but since he brought about his own death by betraying the team, that's probably faded by now.
Chase Stein spent years haunted by the death of his girlfriend Gertrude Yorkes, who died in order to save him from being killed by Geoffrey Wilder, which drove him to several attempts to resurrect her, the most recent of which finally took.
Karolina Dean feels guilt for her beloved Xavin taking her place in order to answer for the crimes committed by Karolina's parents.
Presumably, Victor Mancha also feels survivor's guilt after watching his mom burn to death at the hands of his father, Ultron. In later years, he developed a drug addiction in order to cope, which led to renewed survivor's guilt after he accidentally killed his nephew Vin while high, to the point that he tells his brother Vision to just kill him so that he doesn't have to live with the guilt anymore.
Of course, arguably the worst case is the survivor's guilt suffered by Klara Prast, who suffered at least three near-death experiences in her first year with the Runaways, including getting caught in a factory fire and getting buried beneath part of the Runaways' house, surviving only because Old Lace's body served as a cushion from the rubble.
Played with in the 2017 series, in which Gert is resurrected and is appalled that her teammates "wasted" every last means of resurrection on her while so many other people they know have died and will never get another chance at life.

Elvis Presley spent his life wracked with guilt over his stillborn twin brother Jesse. He confided to his friend Larry Gellar about it, wondering if maybe he'd absorbed more nutrients when they were in their mother's womb and lead to his brother starving to death. Elvis' mother tried to comfort her son and told him they would all be reunited in heaven.

Honor Harrington:
The title character, frequently. She has a habit of going up against impossible odds, prepared to make a Heroic Sacrifice... and surviving. But that doesn't mean that everyone else who went into battle with her will survive, and she beats herself up over it. As the series goes on, she becomes better at dealing with it. It helps that these situations are often ones in which everyone should have died - regardless of how few survive, they wouldn't have without her.
Berry Zilwicki is also said to be dealing with this after surviving an assassination attempt aimed at killing her in At All Costs.
Honor's best friend, Michelle Henke, battles a case of this after surviving the Battle of Solon when most of her people died. This later bonds her to her new flag lieutenant, Gervais "Gwen" Archer; he was also a Solon survivor, albeit from a different ship.

Otacon in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty after the death of his step-sister, where he laments that he's always the survivor. This also hearkens back to the death of Sniper Wolf in the first MGS, who he had tried (and failed) to protect from combat-related death, and herself suffered from this trope.
Big Boss also suffered from this in regards to killing The Boss.
Ditto Fortune, who lost her father, husband, and unborn child, and can't die herself because of her extreme luck (which was really due to a force field).

This is then amplified with Bree in Soul Survivor, with the Euthanatos as one of but four to escape her world's destruction. (Jack, upon seeing her unconscious within the makeshift hospital, feels an instinctive connection with her — but the two have yet to actually speak.)

Justice League:
The episode "Hereafter" features an interesting version. Superman is flung far into the future, where the Earth is a wasteland under a red sun. The sole surviving human is the immortal Vandal Savage, who reveals that he ended up destroying humanity in one of his plans for world domination. Guilty for what he did, he assists Supes in returning to his own time and stopping him.
From the same episode, back in the present day, the League and Toyman think that Superman is dead. Superman got hit by shoving Batman and Wonder Woman out of the way of Toyman's ray. Wonder Woman gets homicidal over survivor's guilt, and Toyman only survives thanks to The Flash.

Naruto:
Sasuke has a bad case of this. In his rant to the resurrected Itachi, he reveals that he wishes he had died with the rest of his family.
Kakashi is another example, being the only survivor of Team Minato, but mainly over Obito and Rin , whom he "talks to" when he visits the Memorial Stone though in chapter 599 we find out that Obito didn't actually die and was in fact, Tobi. and then it gets worse The whole reason Obito did all this was because Kakashi failed to protect Rin, possible making his guilt even WORSE. He's also a witness to two suicides, with the first being his publicly humiliated and disgraced father, and the second being the girl he vowed to protect. The fact that even in his death, his last moments were him literally drowning in guilt and asking for forgiveness didn't help.

Kara also feels guilty for surviving her family and her planet's destruction.
In Supergirl Vol 5 storyline "Way of the World" Kara reveals that she often wishes her parents had not saved their life. She feels guilty because she's alive.
Supergirl feels like this after losing her parents and Krypton over again. In Superman/Batman Annual #5, a computerized Dr. Fate tells Kara that she is suffering from survivor guilt◊ and she shouldn't let guilt kill her◊ and she has to forgive herself◊.
In Red Daughter of Krypton, Kara confided to Guy Gardner that she feels guilty about surviving Krypton's destruction, and she feels she'll be making up for it her whole life, even though she knows she couldn't have saved her world.
In Bizarrogirl, Kara feels horribly guilty after New Krypton's destruction. Every night she has nightmares in where legions of dead accuse her from letting her family die and bringing destruction and pain eveywhere.

The Outer Limits (1995): In "Under the Bed", Dr. Jon Holland, who was six at the time, blames himself for the death of his eight-year-old brother Chris 25 years earlier. They went to play in the woods near the old abandoned mine in their home town of Buford and Chris simply disappeared. Jon, whose career as a child psychiatrist was inspired by this tragedy, later learned that Chris was one of many children in Buford snatched and eaten by a creature since at least the early 1800s.

In the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (IDW) arc "Tempest's Tale", we learn that this is how Glitter Drops feels in regards to what happened to Tempest Shadow in her youth: it was her fault that the ball rolled into the cave where the Ursa Minor was, and Tempest had been the brave one that ventured inside to retrieve it. Glitter Drops feels she should've been the one to have gone in and had her horn broken off, or worse. It's Tempest realizing that she would never want what happened to her to happen to her friends that allows her to finally let go of the past and reconcile.

If Hawke's sister Bethany survives the prologue but dies at the end of Act 1 in Dragon Age II, Varric will evince a bit of this in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Taking him in the party to the Storm Coast and letting him fight the darkspawn above ground will cause him to reminisce about the incident in a way which makes it clear that he never quite got over the loss - which, at this point, was ten years ago - nor entirely stopped blaming himself for it.

Harry Potter:
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Tonks starts acting depressed and this is attributed to survivor guilt after the events of the previous book where her mother's cousin Sirius Black dies. It's also because she's unhappy that she and Lupin can't be a couple.
Harry goes through this here and there throughout the series; in Goblet of Fire he said, "I told Cedric to take the Cup with me," clearly blaming himself. The enormous guilt he feels over all the people who died protecting him is a major point in Deathly Hallows, as he repeatedly tries to push people away just to avoid history repeating.
Also in Deathly Hallows, we find out that Dumbledore is a textbook case. He's spent the better part of his life hating himself for his sister's death.
This trope is the reason Sirius Black blamed himself for the deaths of James and Lily Potter and the muggles killed by Peter Pettigrew.

Attack on Titan:
One of the core elements of the series, with characters struggling to cope with the massive losses that result from being members of a Red Shirt Army. There isn't a single character that hasn't lost a comrade, friend, or loved one at some point in the story, and humanity in general struggles with knowing they survived at the cost of thousands of refugees being sent off to die by the government.
Armin suffered this as he watched Eren being eaten before his very eyes after saving him. He simply shut down and it took a while before he snapped out of it. Later on, he has a little bit of this over being chosen to survive instead of Erwin, who, as anyone other than Eren and Mikasa would tell you, was the much more logical choice. It remains to be seen just how much it's affected him.
Reiner to the extreme, starting with not being able to save Marcel who was on the mission with him, Annie and Bertolt. He later feels even guiltier about being the only one of that group to make it back home, especially given that he was only saved by Zeke and Pieck.

Surprisingly well-done in Supernatural.
Dean's been feeling this since "Faith" but it was ramped to 1000 when his father died. Season Two bends and damages him so much that, by the time "All Hell Breaks Loose" rolls around, he's been reduced to a broken, martyred little boy who has a pathological need to keep Sam (who, contrary to his and his Dad's belief, is actually a big boy now who might have been at peace) alive.
Also, Sam for Jess in Season One and John for Mary his entire life. While Dean's situation is Survivor Guilt taken to the most extreme level, their guilt was portrayed as no less tragic.

The Unexplored Summon://Blood-Sign: This trope, with a heavy dose of The Atoner, is the foundation behind Kyousuke's Chronic Hero Syndrome. In the past, he summoned the White Queen into the world, and she fell in love with him. But due to various factors that Kyousuke didn't know about (the fact that the Queen's presence summons monsters to the world) or couldn't do much about (a conspiracy to usurp control of the Queen from him), she went on a violent rampage and killed many people. Eventually, Kyousuke threw himself at her, hoping that his death would at least prevent any more casualties, but she, of course, didn't kill him. When an army approached with the intent of killing the Queen, she wiped them all out to prevent Kyousuke being killed in the crossfire. Kyousuke feels that he should have died, being (in his opinion) the one responsible for it all, and saves people in an attempt to make up for this.

The premise of Ordinary People is about a family dealing with the death of youngest son Buck in a boating accident one year prior. Specifically the story focuses on Conrad, the older brother who survived the accident and how he blames himself.
Similarly a major theme of The Big Chill.

Homestuck's Wayward Vagabond has this. He leads an uprising made of combined Dersites and Prospitians against the war their two kingdoms were having, and actually was doing quite well... but it ultimately ended in an absolutely crushing defeat that wiped out his rebellion almost down the last man, with only himself surviving. It's implied the experience broke him, and his childish actions and personality are a coping mechanism.

The Twilight Zone (1959):
In "King Nine Will Not Return", the B-25 Mitchell bomber King Nine crashed in a desert in Africa in April 1943. As he was ill, Captain James Embry was unable to participate in its final mission and suffers from severe survivor's guilt for many years afterwards as a result.
In "The Thirty-Fathom Grave", Bell was one of the signalmen on the submarine 714 when it was attacked by a Japanese ship during the First Battle of the Solomon Sea on August 7, 1942. He was knocked overboard by the shelling and was later found in the water by an American destroyer. As he was the Sole Survivor of the sinking, Bell felt enormous guilt and blamed himself. When the 714 is discovered in April 1963, he is Driven to Suicide as he believes, perhaps accurately, that the ghosts of his crew mates are beckoning to him.

Max Payne has this in spades because he failed to save his wife and baby girl from being murdered by V-head junkies.
In the bad ending of Max Payne 2, he's in for a lot more since everyone dies, most of them by his hand. The good ending, on the other hand, has Mona surviving, so he might be pretty okay.
Unfortunately, Max Payne 3 makes the good ending for Max Payne 2 non-canon, and by the time of the third game Max is an even bigger ball of self loathing and destructive tendencies.
Even in the opening to the second game, Max is wracked with guilt for not having been punished for all the killings he committed in the first game... though that's less Survivor Guilt and more Killing-Lots-Of-People Guilt.

The Order of the Stick:
Vaarsuvius experiences much of this after several Azurite soldiers died while begging the elf to save them. V is very aware that there was nothing they could have done to save the soldiers, but rather than being a comfort, this knowledge merely sublimates their trauma into an obsession with acquiring more magical power. That obsession ultimately has even more tragic consequences.
Belkar, of all people, seems to be developing this after Durkon fought Malack to defend him and died doing so.

In the Ghost Whisperer episode “Haunted Hero” an Iraq war army veteran Matt comes home only to be haunted by ghosts of his troop. He was the only solider of his team to survive and the father of one of the ghosts blames him for his son’s death and threatens to share a leaked military video of Matt abandoning his team in a vehicle during a mission to the media. It’s revealed that Matt was abandoning them to drive into enemy territory on what was to be a suicide mission so his team could move forward; the team are able to rescue him before he can be killed, only for him to witness them getting killed by a hidden landmine. The ghosts couldn’t move on until the truth came out and to let Matt know he shouldn’t blame himself for their deaths nor for surviving.

In Telltale's episodic adventure game, Doug falls victim to this if the player chooses to save his life at the cost of leaving Carley to die. He even calls out the trope himself.
In season 2, it's revealed Clementine has this regarding the death of Lee (and possibly Omid) when speaking with Luke at the table. At one point you can even make her tell Kenny that maybe Lee shouldn't have rescued her.

Akiyuki Nosaka, the author of the novel that Grave of the Fireflies is based upon, was almost certainly haunted by survivor guilt as, in Real Life, Setsuko was the only one who died; in both the book he wrote and the film, Seita dies as well... yeah, the Author Avatar in a mostly auto-biographical story never living to see the end of the story is probably the strongest indicator you'll ever find that Akiyuki Nosaka spent his life regretting that he did not die along with the sister he failed to keep alive...

Tony Stark has been suffering this ever since his origin story. He really believes that he should have died instead of Doctor Yinsen, the man who inspired Tony to do better and sacrificed himself so Tony could escape their captors. In one story Tony starts hallucinating due to recently discovered Green Rocks that poison the "soul" for lack of a better term and all of his hallucinations involve Yinsen. In one of them Tony imagines a universe in which Yinsen was the one who escaped in the Iron Man suit while Tony was the one who died, and everything and everyone is better off because of it.

Fai from Tsubasa -RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE- has it bad! He was the last survivor of not one but two destroyed worlds, to say nothing of his twin brother sacrificing his life so that Fai could be free of the magical prison they were both trapped in. Neither the first destroyed world nor the death of his brother was actually his fault, but everybody blamed it on him anyway. By the time the second world rolled around he was perfectly capable of blaming himself without anybody else's help.

Hits on Lamia Loveless of Super Robot Wars, coming off from being the last surviving of the Shadow Mirrors, that she takes part in destroying. She attempted to initiate a self-destruct code in result, but her friends usually come just in time to stop her and persuade her to live out the rest of her life. Somewhat downplayed in that she deliberately did this due to her slowly becoming a Defector from Decadence, the Shadow Mirrors being Always Chaotic Evil, and the fact that she still considers herself as one of them, on the basis that "there's no place in this world for people like us".

Cain in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. He's the Sole Survivor of the knights that King Cornelius took to fight Medeus; though his survivor's guilt isn't portrayed well in the first game, in the Shadow Dragon remake he is clearly very distressed over the incident.

A Brother's Price: Princess Halley, due to the fact that she said "I wish he was dead" seconds before the building which contained not only the horrible husband she was referring to but almost all of her older sisters, exploded. She became obsessed with finding out who caused the death of the aforementioned people.

Marvel Cinematic Universe:
Implied to be what's driving Tony to turn over a new leaf in Iron Man. Considering he's been developing weapons for years, some of which got into the hands of enemies because of his carelessness, only recently saw what his weapons actually do to people, and escaped captivity thanks to someone else's Heroic Sacrifice... yeah.
It comes back again in Avengers: Age of Ultron: his nightmare is that he will be left to watch as his fellow Avengers die. This makes the end of Avengers: Infinity War particularly cruel: Tony and Nebula are the only ones left standing on Titan, as everyone else who fought with them crumbles to dust. Plus, Tony has no way of knowing how many of the other Avengers are left alive because he's far away from Earth's communications network. His emotional state in Avengers: Endgame is likely to be...turbulent.
Heavily implied with Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok, her alcoholism being the result of her being the only one of her kind to survive the battle with Hela.
Following the deaths of his little brother, his best friend and half of his people at the hand of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, Mantis, who is an empath, senses tremendous guilt in Thor, among other things.

The Stormlight Archive: Every time Kaladin tries to save someone, they die while he lives. It started with his own brother and just went downhill from there. It's such a consistent pattern that he becomes convinced that a dying man would be better off without his help. He even thinks he is cursed. Syl eventually convinces him that he's being spared to help people. Of course, that means if he was stronger, he could have saved those people after all. By the third book, Oathbringer, while Kaladin has accepted that everyone's deaths are no longer his fault, he is grappling with his inability to save everyone in the face of ever mounting threats.

Present in full force in Soldiers Live, the last of The Black Company books, largely due to the Kill ’Em All mentality. The title is actually a reference to the concept. "Soldiers Live" is short for "soldiers live, and wonder why." In context, this is the narrator musing over why men younger than himself are cut down while he survives long enough for his age to be bothersome.

Kaidan or Ashley after Virmire in Mass Effect, and Jack in Mass Effect 2 (although you only hear the full story if you romance her).
If you play Shepard the right way, s/he also shows this. S/he really suffers from this in Mass Effect 3, no matter what dialogue you choose.
In addition to the guilt that she felt for handing Shepard's body to Cerberus, it is VERY heavily implied (especially in a romance) that Liara felt unbearable guilt for surviving while Shepard was killed - and for escaping the Shadow Broker while Feron was captured. She spends two years trying to hunt down the Broker for Feron's sake, and learning he's alive sparks a Roaring Rampage of Rescue.
In Garrus' Loyalty Mission in Mass Effect 2, Sidonis, the man who betrayed Garrus' team is shown to suffer from this. By giving him the chance, he reveals that he wasn't The Starscream, but was forced into doing so by mercenaries and is filled with incredible guilt over his actions. Upon hearing the story, Garrus is unable to execute him, which Sidonis repays by delivering himself to C-Sec.
The romance option for Jack in 2 delves heavily into her motivations, eventually revealing one of her partners had died to save her life. Afterward, she found a recording from him explaining he had fallen in love with Jack and wanted to use the money from their jobs to buy them a normal life. The guilt messed her up even more than Cerberus and life had already.
Han Olar on Noveria, when asked how he escaped the Rachni, says he "killed her", meaning he closed the tram door on a co-worker and watched her die. His letter in Mass Effect 2 also indicates he wished he had died in her place.
An Asari commando suffers heavily from this in Mass Effect 3 after killing a young girl who was crying, to avoid attracting the attention of the Eldritch Abomination that infested her farm. There are implications, too, that she thinks Shepard's aware that this girl was sister to one of Shepard's crew. As the war heats up, Shepard can requisition a gun for her, which she promptly uses for suicide... leading the player to feel a touch of Survivor Guilt, too.
Pilot Steve Cortez also suffers from this, after his husband was abducted by the Collectors, with only his recording of his husband's warning of their attack remaining of his husband. If you don't help him overcome his grief, he dies during the final mission.
The krogan as a race suffer from this to an extent due to the genophage leaving 99.9% of their young stillborn. Even though enough survive to theoretically sustain their population, the sheer number of dead hatchlings left their entire race fatalistic.

The Fallout series frequently has this happen with companions:
Fallout: New Vegas:
Craig Boone is suffering this after being ordered to massacre innocent refugees at Bitter Springs, and later losing his wife to Legion enslavement and being forced to Mercy Kill her.
Rose of Sharon Cassidy, the sole survivor of an attack on her caravan, who has turned to Drowning Her Sorrows to cope.
Raul Tejada, a pre-War ghoul whose family was burned to death in front of him and his little sister Rafaela by desperate refugees. Raul later became ill, and Rafaela went scavenging for supplies in his place; she was killed and mutilated by raiders. He killed the raiders in revenge and became a drifter, doing everything he could to escape his old identity.
Randall Clark of the DLC Honest Hearts, personal terminal entries found scattered around various caves in Zion Canyon point heavily to him having suffered from this.
Robert MacCready of Fallout 4, whose wife was torn apart by feral ghouls right in front of him and his son. He expresses regret he couldn't save her, and even wonders if it would have been better if the whole family had died together.

An interesting subversion in Paradise X: Hyperion (Marvel's Superman expy) had his alternate Earth nuked (in an expy/alternate version of Kingdom Come), and now he desperately wants to die, but can't find anything that will kill him. Other characters assume he's suffering from survivor guilt, but Hyperion is the last of his species—he's used to it. He just wants to rejoin his lover, Zarda (Wonder Woman), in the afterlife.

Star Trek:
Star Trek: The Original Series:
In the episode "The Conscience of the King," Kirk is revealed to have this over having been spared during a eugenicist massacre as a teenager.
Commodore Decker from "The Doomsday Machine" goes into a Heroic BSoD after losing his entire crew to the titular Planet Eater.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: In "Duet", the Cardassian Aamin Marritza pretends to be the brutal Cardassian war criminal Gul Darhe'el to force his people to own up to their crimes against Bajor and to appease his own conscience.
The killer in "Field of Fire" was on a ship that was blown up, and was one of only six survivors out of a crew of more than a thousand. His exact motives aren't fully explored, but it's implied that it may have begun with a case of survivor's guilt, which was twisted into a rage against those who didn't have to suffer the way he did.
Star Trek: Voyager:
In "Timeless", both Harry and Chakotay survive the destruction of the Voyager in an alternate timeline, but only Harry really feels this. Or rather, he represents the external guilt, and Chakotay represents the internal guilt.
Chakotay and Torres also experience this to varying degrees when they learn that all the Maquis in the Alpha Quadrant have been wiped out. In "Extreme Risk", Torres struggles with suicidal tendencies that arose from this guilt.

Interestingly, Gojira has a case of this for the the titular monster; a survivor of the atomic bomb. Whilst normal guilt is normally only destructive to onesself, Godzilla has a rather more drastically external case of it.
Emiko Yamane of the original film and Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. The latter heavily implies this as well as her nightmare seems to support it. As a result, The film implied she did not marry her lover Hideo Ogata, as she still has her surname.

Det. Del Spooner of I, Robot has this as a reason for hating robots. During a car accident where he and a girl were trapped in cars sinking into the lake, a robot saved him but not the girl. The robot's claims that Spooner had a better chance of survival than the girl (whose odds were statistically non-existent) and since the robots brain is a difference engine, it logically went after the one with a better chance of survival, a reasoning that Del hates since he believes that a true human would gladly sacrifice their life to save the girl no matter how futile.
To be noted is a scene where he wakes up and points a gun with his head... with his finger on the trigger.

The Land Before Time VII Stone of Cold Fire. This is Petrie's pompous uncle Pterano's tragic backstory. Pterano, blinded by arrogance, unintentionally lead a smaller herd into an earthshake/raptor ambush where EVERYBODY but himself was killed, and he barely managed to escape (and that's only because he can fly). He's shown watching at least one follower die (the swimmer that falls off the cliff). When he meets back up with the main herd at the Valley, he can only turn his back and cradle his head in his hands in grief and shock. Ouch.

Little Fires: Goosepaw was the only survivor out of her mother's litter of stillbirths. Even her mother died giving birth to her. As a result, Goosepaw thinks that she's cursed by StarClan. She even starts to doubt that StarClan is real, which is especially sacrilegious because she's a medicinecat apprentice (a human equivalent would be an agnostic-atheist preacher).

Harry goes through this here and there throughout the series; in Goblet of Fire he said, "I told Cedric to take the Cup with me," clearly blaming himself. The enormous guilt he feels over all the people who died protecting him is a major point in Deathly Hallows, as he repeatedly tries to push people away just to avoid history repeating.

In the M*A*S*H episode "Trick or Treatment", Hawkeye has a patient who is starving himself because his buddies in a foxhole were killed during an artillery burst while eating. The patient survived by pure chance because he ate quickly and went back to the chow line for seconds and now cannot even look at food because of his guilt. Hawkeye sets up an appointment with his psychiatrist friend, Dr. Sidney Freedman, for him to help.
And in the series finale "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen", Hawkeye infamously went through a Heroic BSoD because a mother on a bus full of refugees suffocated her own infant rather than risk the child's crying alerting the enemy of their presence

NCIS carries the heavy implication that Gibbs suffered from this from his wife and daughter being killed by a Mexican drug dealer (whom he got revenge on by killing him in what was heavily implied to be under a felony). The episode "Life Before His Eyes" alleviates the guilt somewhat when his wife (or rather, a figment of her while he was in Limbo) reveals what would have happened had they survived.note The alternate flashback ends with the mom, upon being called by her daughter, discovering two marine officers at her door, strongly implying that Gibbs would have been killed on duty in the Gulf War had they survived. Mike Franks also reveals that, had Gibbs not killed the aforementioned Mexican drug dealer, he would have been far worse off (he would have been a drunk recluse who coldly drives away even his friends from helping him) after Riley McCallister points out his earlier felony sending him into a Heroic BSoD in the same episode.
Gibbs also suffers from this when Kate was killed by Ari, who was after him. His hallucination of her literally yells at him, "Why did I die instead of you!?"
Agent Cassidy was a victim of a bombing ambush that killed the rest of her team, not long after she was made the team leader. The guilt and "what ifs" hung over her head the entire episode until a similar situation presented itself and she ensured only she and the bomber would die. She almost looked relieved when she watched the bomber hit the switch.

Cleveland from The Cleveland Show. When his ex-wife Loretta dies, it forms a rift between him and his wife because of how broken up he is over it. Eventually, he figures it must be survivor's guilt because he'd repeatedly survived what killed her: Peter destroying his house, which caused his bathtub to slide off the second floor and shatter. (He survived this 4 times in Family Guy and 3 times in his own show, but the first time it happened to her, she broke her neck).

Virgil from Xenosaga is this twice over, as revealed in Episode Three. Turns out why he hates Realians so much was because his squad was destroyed by Realians.

Half the party in Radiant Historia. Raynie and Marco are the sole survivors of a cave-in that killed the rest of their mercenary company and Raynie keeps questioning why they survived, Rosche is so crushed after his entire brigade is killed that he goes into a 10-Minute Retirement, and Eruca's overwhelmingly guilt about the fact that Ernst was chosen as the sacrifice instead of her leads her to almost kill herself trying to perform the ritual alone to avoid "killing" him a second time.

On SEAL Team, one of the team members stands down from a mission due to perfectly understandable and justified reasons. The SEAL who replaces him ends up tackling a suicide bomber and dying in the explosion. The SEAL who stayed behind is hit by this really hard but is told that he cannot let the guilt eat at him. If he went on the mission, things could have gone better but they could have also gone worse.
During the same mission, another SEAL is almost killed but ends up concussed and in a lot of pain instead. When the suicide bomber rushes the team, the injured SEAL is in a position to stop him but his injuries make him too slow to react. His comrade sacrifices himself instead to save the team. The injured man feels extremely guilty over this but a more experienced veteran tells him to knock it off. There was nothing he could have done given his injuries and they need to honor their friend's sacrifice by accepting the decision he made was the best one under the circumstances.

Mahou Sensei Negima!:
Negi seems to have some issues stemming from the fact that he, his friend Anya and his cousin Nekane were the only survivors of their Doomed Hometown, while everyone else was Taken for Granite. He's only recently starting to get over the fact that it wasn't his fault.
And then it's revealed that the attack on the village was apparently done by a group of evil senators specifically to kill Negi. So, in a roundabout way, it was his fault. He wasn't aware of it, but it didn't stop him from angsting any.

Nightscream from Beast Machines displays signs of this, particularly in the episode "Survivor." Within the episode, Nightscream and Optimus discover an underground, organic cave within Cybertron that houses numerous fossilized animals. Optimus is overjoyed, as it implies that Cybertron was once an organic world. Nightscream, on the other hand, becomes enraged/heartbroken, commenting that there were enough fossils for the entire Maximal population to scan, which would have saved them from Megatron's takeover (Megatron's scanners cannot detect Cybertronians with beast modes).

In his autobiography and in a Behind The Music episode, Waylon Jennings relates that he was scheduled to be on the "Winter Dance Party" plane with Buddy Holly, as one of Holly's band members. However, Jennings deliberately gave up his seat to J.P. Richardson, better known as The Big Bopper, because Richardson was ill. Holly, who had chartered the plane for himself and the band, joked "Well, I hope your ol' bus freezes up." Jennings joked back "Well, I hope your ol' plane crashes." Tragically, the plane did crash, killing Holly and everyone else aboard. Jennings was haunted by those words for the rest of his life. The infamous coin flip did occur, but between Holly's other band member Tommy Allsup and Ritchie Valens.

One Swamp Thing story (written by Alan Moore) specifically deals with this, when a meteor carrying a trace of surviving fungus is found by astronauts, and Superman discovers that said fungus is an infectious spore known as the "Red Death", which ends up infecting him, as both he and the original spore is from Krypton. The infection gives Superman, among other things, a deadly high fever, and causes him to hallucinate the dead biosphere of Krypton, haunting him for having survived while everything else died. Thankfully, Swamp Thing finds him, and helps him break through the fever and sickness, waking up on the other side with no memory of the encounter.

In Ultimate Spider-Man, Aunt May gets hit with a pretty big case of this when Uncle Ben dies, explaining that it's on top of the grief she feels for Mary and Richard (Peter's parents), and later Captain Stacy's death. After that last death she winds up having to see a psychologist to help her with her feelings on it. While still strong and capable, she's portrayed as realistically emotionally-unstable throughout the book, which is a major reason Peter hides his identity from her at all costs. She naturally lost it when Peter died in her arms, screaming "Not him too!"

In the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command pilot movie, Buzz Lightyear's partner and best friend, Warp Darkmatter, gets killed in the opening and Buzz refuses to take an new partner even though it violates the rules to work alone, due to a combination of arrogance and not wanting to see any other ranger get hurt because of him. The little green men try to solve Buzz's problem by building him a robot partner designed to imitate him named XR that they can easily put back together if destroyed, though on his first mission XR gets destroyed and put back together with a weird personality due to the little green men having lost their mind link at the time. He finally swallows his pride and gets over his survivor guilt when he gets captured by Zurg and finds out that his former partner faked his death and was Evil All Along and accepts XR and two other rangers as his partners.

CLANNAD:
Tomoya was so stricken with guilt and grief at Nagisa's dying while giving birth to their daughter, he a) stayed distant from his daughter while she grew up because of the painful memories, and b) became certain that everything would have been so much better if he and Nagisa had never met in the first place (since she would still be alive (maybe) and he wouldn't have to deal with the painful grief). He comes to realize he was very wrong on both counts, and makes amends with his daughter and makes peace with his memories of his wife. And then, in the anime series version, their daughter dies, and Tomoya drops dead from guilt. But they all get better.
Kotomi's situation also fits this trope and narrowly skirts the edges of Deus Angst Machina; her parents died in a plane crash when she was very young, right after she had a fit and told them (untruthfully) that she hated them. And then she burned up an extremely important document, the only remaining copy of the last thing her parents wrote, in an attempt to bring them back. She becomes obsessed with her parents' death, and tries for years to reproduce the document, but never manages to; and she has trouble making friends because she's secretly terrified that she might make some other mistake and cause their deaths, too. She improves, though, when she learns that the thing she incinerated was a teddy bear catalog, and that her parents managed to mail her a teddy bear from the crashed airplane, because it was the only thing she'd ever asked them for.

7 Seeds:
We have the entire Team Summer A, for how the Final Test went down. The most noticeable examples being Ango, blaming himself for letting Shigeru die, when he was injured and made a mistake when he was two-man climbing the cave's walls. Koruri who thinks she could've saved Mayu, had she arrived at her death site a bit earlier. And Ayu, who feels it's her fault that her bullies died after ingesting poison from branches they used to make chopsticks with when she didn't say anything.
There is also Aramaki, the last survivor of Team Winter. Aramaki thinks he should've died than his team members, finding himself helpless and woefully unprepared for the post-apocalyptic world. His guilt gets worse when Hana presumably dies, sucked into a whirlpool in a raging river, hating his inability of climbing and swimming.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure:
Polnareff was subjected to this multiple times, despite his role as the comedic relief. After letting Avdol died for the first time, he felt so bad that he almost accepted to let himself get eaten by a fake Avdol copy created by an enemy Stand. He temporarily got rid of this after it was revealed that Avdol actually survived. But fate isn't nice, so when Avdol died again to save him and Iggy, he broke down and asked why wouldn't Avdol just let him die instead.
Pucci from part 6 had this, after inadvertently causing the deaths of his sister and her boyfriend. He was shown breaking down over her corpse, deeming himself responsible and that he was the one who should be damned instead.

Shirou of Fate/stay night, though it only really becomes prominent in UBW when people actively question him about why he wants to save everyone if that's what he really wants to do and what he does that he has fun doing. A relevant part of this trope is that he feels guilty about being unable to save anyone else at the fire, had given up and was saved by a fluke when no one else was. He feels he doesn't actually deserve to have fun and instead what he should be doing is more training that nearly kills him every night.
Because of that, unlike normal people, Shirou is unable to create his own happiness and feels "happy" only if people around him are also happy. Which leads him to always put the needs of others before his own. Zigzagged when it's revealed that Shirou didn't actually become like this out of guilt, but simply because he had wanted to find the same happiness Kiritsugu had felt on saving Shirou.

A large portion of the cast of characters in Fullmetal Alchemist fit this trope.
Scar, whose brother died in his place.
Ed, who got away with the loss of just an arm and a leg while Al lost his whole body.
ANY person who was involved in the Ishvalan war and isn't one of the bad guys. Especially Roy, Riza, Alex, and Marcoh.
Hohenheim, who is the only survivor of a race of people, whose genocide was partially his responsibility.
Izumi (more so in the 2003 anime version than the manga)), in regards to her dead child, who she thinks died twice because of her actions.

Cosmo in Sonic X falls into this category. Her planet itself had been abandoned centuries earlier and Cosmo, a young plant based lifeform, grew up on board a Space Station which was then destroyed by the Metarex leaving her the only survivor of her clan - and continually haunted by the fact. Though the Metarex themselves later turn out to be members of the Seedrian species too - the ones who stayed behind on their planet after the others abandoned it, where they became the space-faring monstrosities the Metarex.

Gunslinger Girl: Henrietta was turned into a cyborg precisely because of this trope. Her backstory involves thieves breaking into her house, killing her family, and raping her.

In Doctor Who, The Doctor gets darker due to his entire race (apart from The Master, but he didn't know about him at the time) being killed off.
Guilt compounded by the apparent fact that he caused whatever destroyed the other Time Lords (along with the Daleks) in the first place, as indicated in the episode "Dalek":
He didn't simply cause it. In "The End of Time", it becomes clear that he killed the Time Lords on purpose, to prevent them from destroying reality. In a case of Fridge Brilliance, this is obvious in retrospect: after the Doctor ended the Time War, legions of Daleks survived, but only one other Time Lord.
This trope is arguably the defining personality trait for the Ninth and Tenth Doctors, although Ten is a lot better at hiding it.In "The Waters of Mars", the Tenth Doctor finally snaps. As he walks away from the Mars colony as it's being destroyed, knowing that it, being a fixed point in time, cannot be saved, he hears the screams of the perishing people in his headset. Eventually, it gets too much and the Doctor, utterly terrified of becoming the single survivor once again, turns back and, in a frenzy, tries to take control of the laws of time.
The bulk of this guilt fades following the 50th-anniversary special, "The Day of the Doctor" when the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors team up with the Doctor who fought in the Time War and successfully Tricked Out Time to save Gallifrey. However, the issues caused by changing history render the "younger" Doctors unable to retain the memory of doing it. So the Ninth and Tenth Doctors still retain their Survivor Guilt and, even if they didn't, the Doctor is still a survivor of a war that killed off huge numbers of his own people long before he absconded with the Moment. The Time Lords were losing, after all.
Even without the Time War and the Siege of Trenzalore, the Doctor has watched a lot of people he believed himself responsible for die.
Clara specifically opts not to flee Earth with the Doctor in "In the Forest of the Night", because she's seen what this trope has done to him and doesn't want to experience it herself.

In an early JSA issue, when several of the heroes are confronted with their personal demons, Jay Garrick's turns out to be survivor guilt. He was the first Flash and super-speed hero in general, and that job has a high death rate in DC Comics, so he's outlived a lot of them. The most painful loss was Barry Allen, the second Flash, who had been his protege and a dear friend. (The third Flash, Wally West, was also believed dead at this point... and Jay would go on to lose more successors, even if some managed to come back. He's had it rough.)

Cally from Blake's 7 is the Sole Survivor after La Résistance on Saurian Major was wiped out with biological weapons (she survived because of her alien biology). As her species is telepathic, she finds loneliness unbearable and is planning a suicide attack before being discovered by Blake and joining his crew. Blake surmises that this trope is the reason she never returns home to Auron, though she's later revealed to be an exile from her homeworld. Blake himself is implied to be suffering from this trope — in his Back Story his fellow rebels were massacred but Blake's life was spared so he could be brainwashed into denouncing his own revolution.

The main reason why Teen Titans' Beast Boy is constantly joking and acting like a class clown? He's got a massive case of this; cracking jokes is how he stays anything remotely sane.

Trader belief in The Circle of Magic holds that the sole survivor of a disaster is the source of the bad luck that caused the disaster. Consequently, they are ritually Unpersoned and exiled by the Trader people. This happens to Daja at the beginning of the series, after she's the sole survivor of a shipwreck.
Sandry has a good bit of survivor's guilt over the smallpox plague that left her orphaned, and after the second book, Tris has to deal with having personally destroyed an attacking pirate fleet and watched hundreds of innocent galley slaves drown in their shackles as the ships sank. In the Circle Opens arc, Daja gets hit with it again after learning that the firefighter she'd given handmade magical safety equipment to was the arsonist who'd been setting the fires, and her gear just enabled him to firebomb a hospital. Briar, of all people, seems to have escaped this... until the Circle Reforged arc, which reveals that his travels in the East ended up in a war zone. Good grief.

Fatal Frame:
Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly reveals that Yae Munakata was intent on escaping the Minakami village because she wanted to avoid this fate. While she does leave the village, she ends up feeling guilty because her actions partially caused the catastrophe of the village and she was incapable of rescuing her sister.
Fatal Frame III: The Tormented is built on this trope. Any person suffering from guilt over having survived, while their loved one died, gets lured and trapped into the Manor of Sleep.
Fatal Frame V: Maiden of Black Water has Fuyuhi and Haruka, who both survived a Suicide Pact and feel guilty over having not 'managed' to fulfill their part of the pact.

Superman:
Superman has been accused of constantly doing good works partly because he feels guilty for being the last survivor of his entire planet. The extent of this varies on the character's portrayal. The Pre Crisis Superman left Krypton as a toddler and had total recall, so he could remember his childhood home very clearly and always felt horrible about what happened to it. In Krypton No More, Kara Zor-El/Linda Danvers -aka Supergirl- mentions he feels guilty for being unable to save their home-world.
The Post-Crisis John Byrne version had no memory of Krypton, and when he finally learned about it, it turned out to be a dystopia that wasn't worth missing. This was later retconned.
However, in most incarnation there are other survivors, such as Supergirl and the inhabitants of the Phantom Zone.
One Swamp Thing story (written by Alan Moore) specifically deals with this, when a meteor carrying a trace of surviving fungus is found by astronauts, and Superman discovers that said fungus is an infectious spore known as the "Red Death", which ends up infecting him, as both he and the original spore is from Krypton. The infection gives Superman, among other things, a deadly high fever, and causes him to hallucinate the dead biosphere of Krypton, haunting him for having survived while everything else died. Thankfully, Swamp Thing finds him, and helps him break through the fever and sickness, waking up on the other side with no memory of the encounter.

Any Kamen Rider Gaim post-series fanfic usually portray Mitsuzane as this:
Picking Up the Pieces written by SeaSpectre160. Continuing from the aftermath of Kouta and Kaito's battle, Zack worked his way to escape. After Micchy is rescued, he even attempted suicide in front of Zack.
This is also a huge element for Mitsuzane Kureshima's characterization in Metroid: Kamen Rider Generations, especially in regards to Kouta Kazuraba and Mai Takatsukasa. Of course, they did NOT die. Although Kouta and Mai are now Physical Gods colonizing an isolated planet, as such Kouta and Mai won't be able to see their friends and family forever. Micchy's tendency to blame himself takes this Up to Eleven to the point we see him entirely insecure and brooding underneath. Even Takatora, Gou, and Samus show their concern of getting people to look after Micchy. Although subverted, as the two rarely visit the Earth, as shown with Kouta's meeting with Takeru.

The Hunger Games: Katniss Everdeen has this in spades.
Peeta, on the other hand, seems to have shockingly little of this. However, this could be because the story is told through Katniss' eyes and we never know exactly what Peeta is feeling.

Joe Enders, Nicolas Cage's character in Windtalkers, had his entire unit killed when he decided to follow orders and told them to hold their position rather than retreating. He was the only one who survived and he was awarded a medal and promoted for his actions. To make the situation even more messed up, his new job might require him to kill the code talker he is charged with protecting rather than let him fall into enemy hands. Joe is a Death Seeker and one step away from being suicidal.

In Ultimate Fallout: Spider-Man No More, The Ultimates are hit with this hard over death of Spider-Man: Tony Stark gives Aunt May and Gwen Stacy a home in Europe to start life away from the tabloids, Nick Fury tells Mary Jane that she has every right to publish the truth and that it was his fault that it happened and, worst of all, Steve Rogers quits being Captain America because he gave him "The Reason You Suck" Speech and he was proven horribly wrong.

Two of the main Lords in Fire Emblem: Three Houses suffer quite badly from this, to the point where if the player does not side with them, they end up completely losing themselves to madness. Edelgard was the only one of her eleven siblings to survive a series of gruesome Crest experiments, and her recurring nightmares about their suffering are a major reason why she's willing to resort to extreme methods in order to overthrow the very system she sees as responsible for their deaths. Dimitri was the only survivor of an assassination that killed numerous royals and nobles, including his parents, and resulted in the near-genocide of the natives of Duscur. As such, he feels a relentless need to take revenge for all these deaths, to the point where after the Time Skip, he's suffering from hallucinations of the deceased begging him to avenge them.

Both Hawke and their mother will express this at least to a point in Dragon Age II following the death of one of the younger siblings in the prologue. How it gets expressed depends on which one dies, but there's no way to save them both. If the surviving twin dies at the end of Act 1, it just gets worse. Hawke alone will also have this going on by the end of Act 2, following their mother's murder, which they arrived too late to prevent.
In the same game, Merrill. Depending on whether or not your Warden from the first game was Dalish, she lost one or two of her closest friends to a cursed Magic Mirror - and even if one of them became a Warden, they haven't seen each other since. Her arc consists of her struggle to fix the mirror and get something good out of it (though very dangerous means), and she admits that she still sees their faces in crowds sometimes. It gets worse in Act 3 - she not only loses her teacher, but possibly her entire clan.

Stargate Atlantis: McKay develops a bad case of this when Griffin chooses to drown so McKay can have a chance at survival in "Grace Under Pressure." Rodney later feels extremely guilty because he'd been pretty mean to Griffin and there was no reason Griffin should have sacrificed himself.
Sheppard has an even more serious case right from the beginning. Pre-series he lost several friends and comrades in Iraq and his failure to save them continues to haunt him. In the show itself, it only gets worse as he's now military commander and, despite his best efforts, loses plenty of people under him. Closer to home he loses Ford his second on his team, Carson and Elizabeth his co-leader, the last of which triggers him getting even darker and more self-loathing in the final season.

In the third game, the twist is that the game's main Prosecutor, Godot, is really Diego Armando, Mia Fey's boyfriend who was in a coma until recently and has been hit with a serious case of this over Mia's death. To cope with it he channels all his feelings into being angry at Phoenix, blaming him for her death.

"Serenity", the pilot episode of Firefly shows Captain Malcolm Reynolds as a man of faith, smiling in the face of death in the Battle of Serenity Valley, cheerfully telling a subordinate that God will save them because they're too pretty to die. Moments later, this trope hits him hard, and he never fully recovers. Not so much that he survived, but that all those lives had been a Senseless Sacrifice.

When Lottie figures out that the Omnicidal Maniac who killed her brother has let Sara live three times, and realizes Sara's true identity, she strikes out at Sara by giving her Carris' present to her, the last thing she saw him with before he was killed, to induce more survivor's guilt in her.

Fire Emblem Awakening:
Cordelia's first appearance has her a traumatized wreck after a squad of her fellow knights sacrifice their lives so she can escape a Plegian ambush. This stays with her all throughout the game, with some of her pre-battle quotes and her supports with the Avatar making reference to it.
This factors heavily into Lon'qu's... difficulties around women. His childhood friend Ke'ri was killed right before his eyes, while she was protecting him from bandits. The event deeply traumatized him - not helped by the fact that her parents blamed Lon'qu for her death - and left him believing that any woman who got too close to him would eventually die as well.

In the Emergency! fic "Lost and Found'',Roy is almost kidnapped by a serial killer and torturer, but John pushes to go instead and spare Roy. Roy believes John has to be dead until he is found alive, but even after, Roy wrestles with a non-death related type of this; massive guilt because he knows John suffered 18 months of hell that he should have went through, if he could even have done what John felt he had to just to survive. And John is told that Roy died from being shot, and wrestles with this type of guilt until he finds out the jerk lied to him to torment him more.

In "Timeless", both Harry and Chakotay survive the destruction of the Voyager in an alternate timeline, but only Harry really feels this. Or rather, he represents the external guilt, and Chakotay represents the internal guilt.

Jack Killian from Midnight Caller suffers from this after accidentally shooting his partner. He even dedicates an episode of his radio show to the subject.

In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Tonks starts acting depressed and this is attributed to survivor guilt after the events of the previous book where her mother's cousin Sirius Black dies. It's also because she's unhappy that she and Lupin can't be a couple.

A scene that was never filmed from Superman Returns was to have given this to Superman... as he gazed on Ground Zero in New York City. The writers' idea was that his thought process would essentially be If I had been here, maybe this wouldn't have happened.
Which would have become a twisted mix of Hilarious in Hindsight and Harsher in Hindsight after the destruction Supes and Zod deal to Metropolis in Man of Steel...

Sailor Moon:
After Princess Kakyuu dies in Sailor Stars, the Starlights, the last survivors of their planet, convene to strike back against Galaxia for no other reason than vengeance, stating that without her, they have no reason to live. Their attack fails and they get battered for their troubles, but not killed, leaving them to lament at how they've survived once more.
In the manga, it is reversed: the Starlights die, and then Princess Kakyuu levels up into Sailor Kakyuu to strike back against their killers. However, she gets killed soon after. All of them get better though.

Transformers:
Gunrunner was an Autobot commander. His entire squadron was slaughtered, except for him, due to his pretender shell. Worse, he promised them all they would get out alive.
Depth Charge from Beast Wars was the only survivor of a Maximal colony destroyed by Ax-Crazy Predacon, Rampage. Rampage slaughtered everyone else and even ate some of them. As a result, he made it his personal mission to hunt Rampage down and kill him.
Nightscream from Beast Machines displays signs of this, particularly in the episode "Survivor." Within the episode, Nightscream and Optimus discover an underground, organic cave within Cybertron that houses numerous fossilized animals. Optimus is overjoyed, as it implies that Cybertron was once an organic world. Nightscream, on the other hand, becomes enraged/heartbroken, commenting that there were enough fossils for the entire Maximal population to scan, which would have saved them from Megatron's takeover (Megatron's scanners cannot detect Cybertronians with beast modes).
G1 Bluestreak is described as the only survivor of his city, and presumably developed his nervous habit of constant chatterboxing to fill the silence.

The very title of the Law & Order: UK episode that dealt with Matt Devlin's death. The opening sequence showed his partner Ronnie Brooks speaking to his AA group, clearly tormenting himself, feeling that if he had just gotten to him sooner, he could have prevented him from being shot, perhaps even taken the bullet for him (the sad irony is Matt died doing exactly this for his friend/colleague Alesha Phillips and the young witness in their case). Later, while talking with Alesha, he laments that unlike him, Matt never got a chance to get married and have children. Later still, while talking with his killer—who is himself displaying this trope, as his actions stemmed from his grief and anger over his brother's murder—he correctly deduces that young man loved his brother so much that even now he would take his place in order to bring him back—mirroring his feelings about Matt..
Matt himself displayed this in the episode "Confession" after his childhood friend kills himself, blasting himself for failing to protect his friend from the priest who abused him when they were children and for failing to realize that his friend was suicidal.

The main characters of Twin Star Exorcists, Rokuro and Benio, both suffer from this caused by tragedy's in their past. For Rokuro, it's because he was the lone survivor in an attack that killed 18 kids, who were all living together. For Benio it is the fact that her parents died protecting her, made worse by the fact that their killer gave Benio a chance to save one of them, but because she froze, he ended up killing them both.
