Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/BattleRoyale'' manga, unlike the original book, ends on a rather depressing note. [[spoiler:While Shuya and Noriko both survive the Program and escape the Greater East Asian Republic to America, the short epilogue consists of Shuya's narration implying that their relationship eventually became strained as a result of their traumatic memories of the Program. To add insult to injury, he chides himself for never having told her that he loved her]].

* The ending of ''Side:Despair'' in ''Anime/DanganRonpa3''it even warns you at the beginning "this is a tale of hope that ends in despair". In short, [[TheBadGuyWins The Tragedy has begun]]: Chisa and Class 77-B were turned into Junko lackeys through the Brainwashing Despair Video, Chiaki is brutally tortured to death, and Ryota is a broken, guilt-ridden wreck. Since it's just a {{Prequel}}, this is certainly expected, as Izuru becomes TheStarscream, plotting behind Junko's back out of anger for what she did to Chiaki, setting up the events of ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2''.

** On a more personal note in ''Side:Hope'', Munakata has lost everything, including Chisa and Juzo (even more so with the former, who is lobotimized by the aforementioned video prior to the Tragedy), and blames himself for his actions during the Final Killing Game, stepping down his position as a Future Foundation head nd setting off to WalkTheEarth as a result.

* The ending of ''Side:Despair'' in ''Anime/DanganRonpa3''--it even warns you at the beginning "this is a tale of hope that ends in despair". In short, ''[[TheBadGuyWins Junko wins]]''--Class 77-B is brainwashed into being her minions, Chiaki is brutally tortured to death, Chisa is brainwashed and sent as TheMole to the Future Foundation, where she will seed dissent and push her boyfriend into insanity, and Ryota is a broken, guilt-ridden wreck. The only sliver of hope is that Izuru has turned on Junko out of anger for what she did to Chiaki, and his plotting against her eventually leads to ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' and ''Side:Hope''.

* By the end of ''Anime/SpaceRunawayIdeon'', over half of the cast has been killed with many of the surviving protagonists expressing a rather bleak pessimism about their fates. Eventually, the series ends when the anime's title robot is destroyed along with the surviving cast members. One of "KillEmAll" [[YoshiyukiTomino Tomino]]'s most notorious endings.

* A very old example is ''[[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=1409 Triton Of the Sea]]'' , When the title character spends the entire series avenging his family, who were annihilated 5000 years ago by the bloodthirsty Poseidon family, only to find out from after defeating the BigBad that it was the ''Triton'' family who were the bloodthirsty ones and he proved it by committing genocide, thus causing a HeroicBSOD. THE END. It should be noted that this is the first series written and directed by YoshiyukiTomino, and was considered a kid's show at the time.

* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket]]''. At the end, Al's friend Bernie attempted to fight and destroy the Federation's latest HumongousMecha, the Gundam NT-1, or risk having the peaceful Space Colony nuked. Except that he was himself using a damaged grunt unit. And the pilot of NT-1 was Chris, Al's neighbor who's attracted to Bernie (the feeling is mutual). The two dueled until Bernie was killed and Chris gravely injured. In front of Al. ''After Al found out the nuke carrier had been stopped and rushed to tell Bernie.'' And then Chris asked Al about his "cousin" Bernie...
** What drives it further down is the last scene. Al is sitting in his classroom where his friends, with whom he was so ethusiastic about mobile suits at the beginning, are still discussing war and mobile suits. Al finally snaps and starts crying. One of his friends tries to cheer him up stating: "Don't worry, there will be another war!" thinking Al is saddened over the "cool" battles being over. Al is alone in understanding that mobile suits are war machines piloted by other people, who if not for the war might as well be friends. What makes this line even worse is that his friend is right. There will be other wars and they will be just as terrible.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory'' - Gato and Delaz are killed, but ultimately TheBadGuyWins. Kou lost his beloved HotScientist, and is courtmartialed for stealing the GP-03 after the GP-01's destruction, though released later. Captain Synapse commits suicide in order to take responsibility for the above. The Titans, who most of the Albion crew join, are formed, and we all know how well that turned out. The good guys have effectively lost, and moreover their PyrrhicVictory sets the stage for an even bloodier war and all their attempts to help just sets the stage for a worse organization.
