** {{Subverted}} at the same time by some positive MoodWhiplash that occurs when you read the minds of some trees that later turn out to be the village's children. Their youthful curiosity and enthusiasm spared them from most of the horror because they were so fascinated by their unusual situation. One of the kid-trees for instance realises they never appreciated how good water can taste before they were turned into a plant.

* ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes'': The SecretCharacter known as Shadow Lady is [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Chun-Li]] from an AlternateUniverse where she was [[ReforgedIntoAMinion forcibly turned into a]] [[UnwillingRoboticization brainwashed cybernetic minion]] for Shadaloo. Before she was forcibly roboticized, Chun-Li routinely foiled Shadaloo's plans at every turn, and in retaliation, Shadaloo kidnapped, experimented and [[{{Cyborg}} cyborgized]] her for the sake of turning her into a pawn against Interpol. When the task was completed, they turned her into a living weapon, complete with a new name and transformed her into M. Bison's [[TheDragon top operative]]. Unlike Shadow--a roboticized Charlie Nash, who escaped shortly after being transformed--Shadaloo added a RestrainingBolt to Shadow Lady's programming and internal systems so the cyborg would [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul remain fully obedient and loyal to Bison]], and complete her missions by having her body be remotely controlled, essentially making her a [[DarkActionGirl Dark Action]] RobotGirl. As Shadow Lady, [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul Chun-Li's formerly cheerful personality was obliterated, and her body's physiology altered so it]] [[EmotionlessGirl experienced no emotion apart from being a ruthless but highly effective killing machine]] and assassin for Shadaloo - in essence, she is essentially a completely different person inhabiting her body and mind (being more machine than human), and serves as nothing but a weapon against her former allies and Interpol. It's also been implied that deep down, [[AndIMustScream the old Chun-Li is still there on some level]], and is at least partially aware of what she has done. Even if her allies ever managed to revive her, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Chun-Li would have to deal with the]] [[HeelRealization guilt of being a tool for Shadaloo]], not to mention the fact that [[RealityEnsues being a brainwashed robotic minion wouldn't go away overnight]] should she become a good person again. Aside from retaining a few moves from her non-cyborgified variant, she has built-in high tech weaponry, and all of this was augmented to her robotic body, like the T-X from the ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}'' series, thus making her more faster and stronger than Shadow, but at the cost of becoming a brainwashed minion for Shadaloo. She shoots [[HomingProjectile homing]]/[[MissileLockOn heat-seeking missiles]] from [[BackpackCannon her back]], thrusts forward with [[ThisIsADrill a drill]], encases herself in a [[ShockAndAwe electric barrier]] (that also [[DeflectorShield deflects attacks]] and stuns opponents), miniaturized Vernier thrusters in her feet that enable her to jump much higher (and allow her to kick more rapidly) and fires a large beam ([[ArmCannon Big Bang Laser]]) from [[HandBlast her palms]]. [[spoiler:In her ending however, she manages to [[HeroicWillpower overcome Shadaloo's brainwashing,]] [[HeelFaceTurn regain her original memories as Chun-Li]], and join forces with Shadow in taking down Shadaloo. Despite this, she retains her robotic parts even after the brainwashing broke.]]

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'': [[spoiler:Rika Furude]] has been stuck in a GroundhogDayLoop for somewhere between a century and a millennium. In most iterations, one of her friends will [[HatePlague go insane and kill a bunch of people]]. In every iteration, [[spoiler:Rika is murdered, usually [[CruelAndUnusualDeath disemboweled while she's still alive]], and most or all of her friends die within a few days. Then she's resurrected in the past, and goes through it all over again, and she's the only one who remembers what's happening, but enough important details keep changing that she can't manage to stop it.]]

In the sequel story, ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', there is a new character named Frederica Bernkastel that looks heavily like Rika. [[spoiler:It is revealed that Frederica is an amalgation of all the dozens or hundreds of Rika's incarnations that have died horribly, forming a being aptly titled "The most cruel witch", and one of her passtimes is doing the exact same thing to other mortals that has happened to her unwitting "creator".]]

* The ''VideoGame/DeadlyTowers'' video game is so bad that the [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd Angry Video Game Nerd]] compared it to "a never-ending turd that bends around and goes into your mouth, thus creating an endless cycle of eating your own shit whilst taking a crap and occasionally puking up the same for all eternity".

* Should you choose to ally with the Kuei-jin in ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', [[spoiler: Ming Xiao will -- after you defeat the Sheriff -- chain you to the Sarcophagus and throw it in the ocean. Since vampires cannot drown and the blood will prevent decomposition, your best hope is to be eaten by sea creatures (good luck, you traitor).]]
