* Several episodes of Creator/RoosterTeeth's animated series, ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' end pretty badly for at least one protagonist.
** ''Jaundice'': [[TheBully Cardin]] finds out about Jaune's DarkSecret about how he forged his way into Beacon Academy since his dorm is just below the roof, and blackmails Jaune into doing all his homework, or else, he will tell the entire school and have Jaune kicked out.
** ''No Brakes'': Team RWBY fails to stop the train from crashing through the sealed wall that leads straight into downtown Vale, opening up a path for the aforementioned Grimm horde to wreak havoc on the city.
** Perhaps the biggest offender is the third season's finale, ''End of the Beginning'', similar to the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender's'' ''Crossroads of Destiny''. [[spoiler: Cinder gets the Fall Maiden's powers, kills Phyrra; Beacon is in ruins and crawling with Grimm, the international communication Network destroyed, causing a major communication disruption, and every single kingdom in the word now believes the other one is guilty, leading a huge amount of distrust. To exacerbate the hopelessness even further, Team RWBY is dismantled due to Ruby joining Jaune, Ren and Norato go to Haven and look for answers, Blake running away in shame, Weiss being taken back home by her father, and Yang still in bed, completely depressed, due having lost an arm. The end also shows the Big Bad, Salem, for the first time, estipulating her moment as the Hope Crusher.]]

Critic refuses to relent, Wilsonóto the Critic's utter horroróbegins showing and tormenting the Critic by showing humiliating videos from his adolescence years and now the world has seen them, snarking at them all the while, ending with the Critic [[SkywardScream screaming out]] [[SayMyName MARA WILSON!!!!!]]), ''Film/SonOfTheMask'' (Critic is left crying, traumatized and scarred for life by the movie and Satan doesn't grant his request to be put out of his misery, and his daughter goes from childishly cute to [[NightmareFace horrifyingly ugly]], thanks to the movie.), and ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'' (Halle Berry (played by Orlando) appears and the Critic gets beaten up by her.) to name but a few.

* Most Creepypastas are this or have a BitterSweetEnding at best. The villain usually wins.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' gets one on Volume 3 due to a very bad case of CerebusSyndrome. By the end of the Volume, [[spoiler: Pyrrha, Penny and Torchwick are dead, with Ozpin MIA possibly dead too, has also TheBadGuyWins due to Cinder fully getting the Fall Maiden's powers, Beacon is destroyed, the international communication Network destroyed, with every single kingdom in the word believing the other one is guilty, team RWBY is dismantled due to Blake running away, Weiss being taken back home and Yang having lost an arm. The end also shows the BigBad, Salem, for the first time, estipulating her moment as the HopeCrusher. The last moments of the Volume show Ruby, Jaune, Ren and Nora grouping together to go to Haven and look for answers.]]

* In one of the darkest and most tragic episodes of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' yet, ''Fall'' ends with Yang [[spoiler:being tricked into breaking Mercury's leg on worldwide live television, presumably under the influence of an illusion, and consequently being arrested. The final scene before the cut to black shows Yang and her teammates watching on in bewildered horror at the realization of what has happened, all the while a [[DarkReprise sad piano version of Yang's theme]] plays]]. The next episode, "The Beginning of the End" makes the above ending even bleaker by adding more distressing details: [[spoiler:The public is in generally appalled uproar and it's not just Yang's reputation in tatters but Ozpin's and Beacon's as well. Plus, the Grimm are drawn to the city by the bad feeling passed around and the military are struggling to contain them.]]
** Volume 3 in general ends on a horrifically depressing note. [[spoiler:Penny and Pyrrha are both dead, killed in Cinder's machinations. Team RWBY is effectively no more as Weiss has been forcibly taken back to Atlas by her father, Blake has run off out of guilt and grief, and Yang is bedridden, maimed and so cynical and depressed that she angrily brushes even Ruby away. Ozpin is missing and Beacon has fallen to the Grimm. The world is on the verge of war as the trans-national communication system has shut down and the last thing anybody got out of Vale was images of Ironwood's robotic soldiers (which were really hijacked by Cinder) attacking the city. And Cinder now has the full power of the Fall Maiden.]]
