** The Garlic Jr Saga was this; first Garlic Jr escapes the Dead Zone, then he imprisons Kami and Popo in glass bottles, then he unleashes the Black Water Mist upon the Earth causing all who breathe it to become his mindless slaves that turn on their un-infected friends and family. Almost everyone on Earth is infected including several of our heroes' allies and family. Then Piccolo is bitten by evil Z Fighters and turns as well leaving only Gohan and Krillin to save everyone, but then Gohan gets his ass kicked by Piccolo, who shortly afterwards bites and infects Krillin, turning him bad too. On top of all that, there's no Goku or Vegeta to help out and Garlic Jr is immortal. Thankfully, Piccolo and Krillin were only pretending to be infected in order to save Kami and Popo, but before the reveal things looked utterly hopeless for poor Gohan.

* The manga ''Manga/MPDPsycho'' by Eiji Otsuka uses this as a primary plot device, with its body-hopping serial killers and web of conspiracies. The live-action TV adaptation actually ''tones this down'' a bit; which is rather unexpected, since it was adapted by TakashiMiike, who is notorious for his {{Gorn}}-laden horror movies.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'''s Golden Age arc starts spiraling into a series of things getting worse after Guts leaves the Hawks. To wit: Griffith, after having been defeated by Guts, heads to Windham Castle and has sex with Princess Charlotte. When her dad, the King of Midland, who has had some less-than-fatherly eyes for her ever since the passing of her mother (an event Griffith was responsible for, as she was part of the conspiracy among the nobility to kill him), finds out about this, he's pissed. So pissed, in fact, that he has Griffith imprisoned in the Tower of Rebirth to be put to the torture and the Hawks he led declared {{outlaw}}, leading to Casca and crew having to spend a year on the run as they are hunted and killed by the forces of the country they once threw in with. When Guts returns and the Hawks learn where Griffith is being held, they mount a rescue mission. They manage to reach him, only to find him a broken, emaciated shell of his former self as a result of his torture. They make their escape, and have to deal with not only pursuit by the Bakiraka, but a goddamn demon and his mercenary army as the King is hellbent on revenge against Griffith. By the time it's over, the Hawks are demoralized and looking to go their separate ways, and Casca feels the weight of TheChainsOfCommanding on her as she attempts to rally what's left of Griffith's people. While things are bad now, it only gets worse when Griffith hits the DespairEventHorizon and finds his Crimson Behelit again, triggering the events of the Eclipse. The Hawks are transported into hell, where they are met with a multitude of demons and the four most powerful demons in existence, the Godhand. After the Godhand explain the nature of demons, Griffith accepts their DealWithTheDevil despite Guts's best attempts to reach him. [[spoiler:Because the Eclipse is the ceremony for the birth of a new Godhand, which only happens once every 216 years, every demon in the Berserk universe (with the exception of Zodd, who in the manga is busy fighting the Skull Knight) comes out of the woodwork to eat the Band of the Hawk alive. Many characters that we had come to like die horribly until only Guts and Casca are left, Guts because he makes a very badass showing against demon after demon after getting his bearings, and Casca because Pippin and Judeau, the two best warriors of the Hawks other than Guts and Griffith, sacrifice themselves to keep her alive and because the monsters have even ''worse'' in mind for her than being eaten. As Guts tries to save her, a demon snaps its jaws around his arm as he tries to reach her. Then Griffith gets reborn as Femto, the fifth member of the Godhand, and gets his hands on the now-naked Casca, who he proceeds to start [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty having his way with]]. Guts does everything he can to make a dent in the demon's hide, and when the sword he appropriated from Gaston breaks, Guts uses what's left of the sword to ''[[LifeOrLimbDecision chisel off his own arm]]'' in a serious badass moment to free himself so he can save Casca and kill Femto, a HopeSpot that is very cruelly quashed when Guts finally gets free and rushes Femto, only to be basically dogpiled by a whole mess of monsters, pinned down, [[EyeScream his right eye clawed out]], and ForcedToWatch as Femto rapes Casca to insanity right in front of him]]. And that's the point where the anime ends.

** The biggest example is the infamous WhamEpisode where everything explodes due to the smallest mistake. [[spoiler:"For example, if I ordered you to ''kill all the Japanese...''"]] Shit hit the fan in a way that no one could predict. "[[Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy1 It is of course well known that careless talk costs lives, but the full scale of the problem is not always appreciated.]]"

* ''Manga/PandoraHearts" in its entirety is this trope. It was pretty messed up to begin with, but then [[spoiler: a major character, Elliot, dies.]] This is a huge turning point for the manga, and although things weren't going very well to begin with, things get ''much'' worse from here on. [[spoiler: Eventually, everybody's either insane or dead.]]

* This is episodes 8-10 of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' in a nutshell. First, [[IllGirl Hayate's]] condition starts to worsen, forcing her to be hospitalized and gives her a month to live at best.

** ''ShinMazingerZero'': In this [[http://i14.mangareader.net/shin-mazinger-zero/2/shin-mazinger-zero-931276.jpg picture]], Kouji is dashing headfirst in the DespairEventHorizon after his father has been murdered, his girlfriend has been raped and murdered, and he has been forced to kill his MadScientist of a grandfather, losing an arm in the process. It gets worse? Oh, yeah. Straight after an EldritchAbomination dwelling in the body of a HumongousMecha will possess his body and will use him to fight an army of {{Robeast}}s. During three months he will fight relentlessly Dr. Hell's Mechanical Beasts army, gradually losing his sanity as the whole world becomes ruins. Finally his mind will snap, and the EldritchAbomination -fed and fueled by his negative emotions of rage, despair, madness, grief and pain- will get loose [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt and burnt the world to ashes]]. The funny part? That is the ''first'' story arc.
