* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'':
** Some early episodes can count as this if the engine is the main character of an episode and suffers from LaserGuidedKarma for their haughty or irresponsible behavior (i.e, James in "[[Recap/ThomasTheTankEngineS1E23DirtyObjects Dirty Objects/James In A Mess]]" and Gordon in "[[Recap/ThomasTheTankEngineS1E24OffTheRails Off The Rails/Gordon Takes A Dip]]"), often ending with the character sadly learning their hard lesson. However, the episodes are part of arcs, and will then be resolved and given a happy ending in their continuation.

** "The Outside" ends with Richard's father, Frankie (who was assumed to have been in prison which explains his extended absence in his son's life and concluding they need to make their home into a prison for him) revealing to the Wattersons that he was never in prison, though he ''was'' sentenced to three days and has been on the run ever since. When Richard forgives him for also trying to scam them for free rent and food in their home and offers him to stay with the Wattersons for as long as he wants, Frankie begins to consider... and remembers everything the Wattersons put him through because of the aforementioned assumption and rejects the invite. Then Frankie gets arrested for real when the Donut Cop overhears his confession and accepts prison over the family, [[YankTheDog'sChain leaving Richard behind once again.]]

** "The Nobody" has an amnesiac Rob searching for a purpose in life.

** Pick '''any'' WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror segment. Nine times out of ten, it'll have this kind of ending. PlayedForLaughs.
** {{Subverted}} in the episode "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish", when it appears Homer has died in an armchair in the living room. In the end, Marge discovers Homer is still alive and he promises to live life to the fullest. The episode ends on a darkly comical [[TitleDrop downer ending]] as it shows Homer wasting his life eating pork rinds and watching TV, as usual.

* The ending of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' episode "Omega Kids". The entire school except for the workers and T.J.'s gang is sick after eating Tuna Fish Tacos. At first, the gang really likes being the only ones there, but it all spirals downhill after Ms. Grotke says they should catch up on some work. To prevent them from doing work, the gang pretends they are sick, but the fake sickness they have turns out to be so severe that they can't be sent home. The episode ends with them trapped in a plastic dome with several people in hazmat suits barracading the school.

** In "[[Recap/ThomasTheTankEngineS2E13DirtyWork Dirty Work/Diesel's Devious Deed]]", which doubles as TheBadGuyWins, Diesel told lies to the troublesome trucks that Duck made cruel names about Gordon, Henry, and James. The three big engines found out about the trucks' teasing and turn on Duck. The Fat Controller seemed suspicious of Diesel, but it appeared as if he was against Duck as well. As a result, Duck is sent to Edward's station as a "punishment" while Diesel smirks triumphantly of his plan. In reality, though, The Fat Controller was actually giving Diesel room and time to cause his own downfall.

* BatmanUnderTheRedHood ends on an almost nihilistic note. Batman has been betrayed by Jason Todd, the Robin he believed dead, and had it rubbed in his face that his war on crime is unwinnable, that the Joker will keep escaping his cardboard prison to kill and maim until the day he dies, and that untouchable crime lords will continually hold Gotham in their grip. Any promise of a brighter tomorrow will be destroyed by the scourge of time.

* The ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' episode, [[Recap/LiloAndStitchTheSeriesS1E25Angel "Angel"]]. Stitch falls in love with an experiment (who basically looks like a pink, female version of Stitch), but Lilo has suspicion towards her because her siren-like song reverts any of the experiments that have been converted for good back to their destructive states. Luckily, Stitch and 625 were immune because they were made ''after'' Angel. In the end, [[LoveRedeems Stitch makes Angel see the error of her ways]], but sadly, she was captured by Gantu. However, this was due to [[ExecutiveMeddling the executives disliking the idea of Angel]], much to the dismay and anger of the fans. [[EarnYourHappyEnding It gets fixed]] in the [[GrandFinale series finale]], "Snafu".

** In one episode Dexter and Mandark fail to stop an asteroid from destroying the world due their refusal to work together. The two fail to notice this, still bickering inside their mechs in outer space. Thankfully, that doesn't mean much here.

** The episode "Take This Ed and Shove It" also qualifies in a way -- Eddy had just woken up from the RipVanWinkle and declares, "[[GrowingUpSucks I don't ever wanna grow up!]]" Cue Eddy waking up again, back as an old man. He soon realises that he fell asleep reminiscing about his childhood with his friends. The episode ends with him wishing he was still a kid.
