* ''VideoGame/MadMax2015'' somehow manages to have an ending even more depressing than the end of the first movie. You know, where his family was killed and he was left a broken shell of a man? Hope and Glory are brutally murdered by Scrotus, triggering the voices and hallucinations that start plaguing Max, and he ends up destroying the CoolCar you spent the whole game building up into an unstoppable deathmobile while trying to kill Scrotus, killing Chumbucket in the process. The only bright spots to all of this are that Max gets his Interceptor back, and with both Scrotus and [[TheDragon Stank Gum]] dead (and potentially everything else Max has done over the course of the game), the territories surrounding Gastown are safer. But Max himself is right back where he was at the beginning of the game; all by himself and with no one he can trust, trying to outrace his demons. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero And he's got nobody but himself to blame for it.]]

** During the course of Eliza's story, [[spoiler: she takes Ms. Fortune prisoner, murders Cerebella in cold blood, then destroys the Skull Heart. When Filia and Squigly ambush her in her own nightclub, she's far too powerful for them to stop thanks to all the blood she took from Gehenna, and takes them both prisoner, too. She then turns into a gigantic blood monster and marches on Medici Tower, declaring war on them.]]

*** Sparing Toriel in any ending besides the Pacifist-Neutral ending results in [[spoiler:her attempting to instill a "humans are friends" philosophy, only to have it harshly rejected by the remaining monsters, who soon stage a revolt against her. To avoid further conflict, she steps down willingly[[note]]Provided Undyne isn't left alive. Otherwise, Undyne spearheads the rebellion and ends up throwing her out of the castle (likely literally).[[/note]] and spends the rest of her days exiled to the Ruins. [[PetTheDog At least she has Sans to keep her company.]][[note]]If Papyrus wasn't killed, that is. If he was, his last line before hanging up implies that he'll be joining her.[[/note]]]

*** Speaking of [[spoiler:Mettaton, sparing him leads to him being the leader of the Underground and brainwashing the monsters with his TV Show. Papyrus, if you left him alive, mentions that anyone who doesn't worship Mettaton is never seen again, which bodes poorly for the future of the Underground.]]

** Ms Fortune [[spoiler: decides not to wish her old gang back to life, finding peace with her new friends back in Little Innsmouth. However, when she returns back home she finds out that the Medici mafia has kidnapped many of the residents in town, mostly all being children. She meets up with Irvin, Big Bands old partner, and agrees to help him investigate the situation as the game shows Black Dahlia, one of the Medici mafias most dangerous enforcers, holding the children hostage at gun point.]]
