** The fifth installment's ending may be the most depressing one yet. Duck Guy gets grinded into canned food (''alive!'') and served as lunch for the Yellow Guy. The latter is then force fed every can (unaware that he had just eaten his own friend ''because he was drugged by the teachers''), and ends up sitting in the dark kitchen, completely alone. Afterwards, the mysterious caller (who had been trying to call the two throughout the episode) is revealed to be [[spoiler:the absent Red Guy, who had been calling from a phone booth outside]]. The episode ends with Red Guy, dressed in a trenchcoat and carrying a suitcase, walking away from the phone booth in the rain. It's implied that [[spoiler:he was the one who called Duck Guy and Yellow Guy earlier in the episode]]. Judging by the depressing rainstorm, the somewhat melancholic jazz music, and the fact that he has a suitcase, it's certainly not a happy with the results.

* Almost every episode of ''WesternAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'', however, "Class Act" is probably the most famous example.

* Considering the fact that the premise of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' is 'Kill until only one survives' these kind of endings are pretty much inevitable. Of especial TearJerker material is the ending of V1, whereupon the winner visits the families of a number of their deceased classmates. There's also the fact, y'know, that the winner is the only survivor out of the group of 123 kids on the island.
