* At the end of ''{{Literature/Wander}}'', [[spoiler:Wander, Dagger and Pan reach Sanctuary but Temple, Buddy and Heather are dead, along with the rest of Dagger’s group. The sole exception is Romeo, who’s nowhere to be found, so a depressed Dagger leaves Sanctuary to try and find him.]]

* ''Flanimals: Day of the Bletchling'' ends on what seems to be [[DownerEnding a pretty somber note.]] The Flanimals of the world all unite together to take on [[BigCreepyCrawlies the Bletchling swarm]]...[[TheBadGuyWins and they lose.]] [[CurbStompBattle Badly.]] As in ''every single Flanimal on the planet dies.'' Even the Bletchlings have doomed themselves, [[PyrrhicVictory guaranteeing their extinction by killing off all future food sources for their eggs.]] The planet is ultimately left devoid of complex life. However, there still exists the single-celled Splorn, which the LemonyNarrator suggests could evolve to eventually repopulate the planet with new life.

* ''Literature/TheHeartsWeSold'' ends with James and Cal dead. However, the world is saved, Dee is released from her contract with the Daemon, and she asks him to release Riley, too. (It's unclear if he will, but he has no reason not to.) In addition, Riley, who used to be homeless, is now in a happy, committed relationship with Gremma and now has a safe place to live, and Dee never has to return to her abusive home ever again, having enough money to put her through college. While the threat that could've ended the world will likely come back someday, the Daemon now knows what to do about it. He doubts that humans would willingly put their lives on the line to help him, but Dee disagrees, proving that in spite of everything, she believes in heroes and selflessness again.

* The ending of the series as a whole was quite happy, but a number of the installments in Creator/FredSaberhagen's ''BooksOfSwords'' series were bittersweet at best.

* The final volume of the ''Konrad'' WarhammerFantasy novels features Konrad defeating the Skaven plot to take over the Empire, and screwing with his adversary's plans. Unfortunately for Konrad, said enemy escapes, and he is forced to behead his first love; for bonus points, it's implied he may not survive what he's getting into at the end. By this point, most if not all of his friends and allies are dead. Of course, this is from a ''[[CrapsackWorld Games Workshop]]'' universe, so it should come as no surprise that this is actually the ''most'' optimistic part of the novel.

* ''Literature/ADeadlyPresence'': The two main heroes live HappilyEverAfter and the leopard will be transported to a zoo instead of being killed, but humanity still doesn't care about Nature and continues to destroy it. [[DownerEnding A very sad story when you see it in this perspective]].
