** It practically defines the Mega Man loops. Right off the bat, the Mega Man universe was one of the worst damaged by the first Crash. The initial attempts to get the universe looping with Rock failed badly. The next attempt, with Roll, also failed badly. Then the admins tried Blues. Then they tried a Fused Loop, which went right through horrifically wrong and out the other side, with all four Anchors (the ones required to keep the universes intact) being dragged into a bizarre ritualised attempt for... ''something'' to ascend to god-hood. It ended with the universe they were merged with being outright erased from time and space forever, along with badly damaging the rest of the multiverse in the process. The next attempt is a do-or-die attempt, if it fails the Mega Man universe will be erased from existence as well. [[spoiler:They just barely squeak through, thanks to a Fused Loop with Sonic the Hedgehog's universe.

It ended with the universe they were merged with being outright erased from time and space forever, along with badly damaging the rest of the multiverse in the process.

* What could possibly be worse than the [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} grim dark future of the 41st Millennium, where there is only war?]] Give the 51st Millennium a try, as depicted in ''FanFic/TheShapeOfTheNightmareToCome''. Let's go over it. The Astronomican has finally failed so the Imperium is broken up into a number of warring fiefdoms, and the God-Emperor has died and become an entity called the Star Father, ''[[LightIsNotGood a Chaos God]] [[LawfulEvil of Order]]''. Most of the Space Marines have either fallen to Chaos or become bitter psychotic mercenaries hiring themselves out to any fiefdom willing to pay for their services. Cato Sicarius has seized control of Ultramar, renamed it to "[[{{Egopolis}} Grand Sicarum]]" and begun purging dissenters Stalin-style. The Tau have been under constant assault in much the same way the Imperium once was and consequently have changed policy from "negotiate and subdue when necessary" to just "subdue". Most of the Eldar are dead (save a few survivors who have become Corsairs, joined [[TheEmpire Biel-tan]] or infiltrated top positions in Imperial society) and Ynnead has been born... [[spoiler:only to be trapped in the Infinity Circuits, rendering all of the Eldar's sacrifices pointless]]. The forces of Chaos under Warmaster Horus have swept out of the Eye of Terror and formed a new Chaos empire over huge chunks of Imperial space - including Cadia and ''Terra''. The Necrons have reawakened the Void Dragon and are now marching across the stars in a war of galactic genocide. On the plus side, the Orks and Tyranids have finally been eradicated... Well, that is only after merging into a new species that has swept across the galaxy and consumed a third of it. Oh, and there's this... ''[[EldritchAbomination thing]]'', called the Ophilim Kiasoz, which floats around unmaking entire star systems just by passing through them.

* ''SonOfApophis''. The cast is trapped in their house. If they leave the army will assume they're guilty of treason and arrest them. If they stay they'll be assassinated. Whilst they're busy worrying over this, one of them is kidnapped. When they do to fix that ''the house gets burned down''. Whether they were still inside or not is not yet known.

** When Alex finds them again in an abandoned hotel, Blaine tries to reason with him but it comes out semi-coherent at best. And then [[spoiler: ''Alex tries to strangle Kurt.'']] Luckily, [[spoiler: Kurt goes berserk and starts pummeling Alex in turn]]. Their friends and Kurt's family finally find them, get Alex arrested, and take Blaine to the Blue Sun hospital. Where he tells his doctor [[{{Series/Firefly}} Simon Tam]] about a conversation with Alex that the others haven't mentioned, and it's creepy enough to have him call [[CriminalMinds Derek Morgan]] on the suspicion that [[spoiler: Alex sexually assaulted Blaine and he can't express it properly.]]

* Good guy example in ''Sailor Moon: Legends of Lightstorm''. At the end of ''Lightning Round'', Sailor Jupiter transforms and joins forces with Lightstorm to kick the asses of Zoisite and her drones. Things get worse for Zoisite when the rest of the Scouts appear one by one and make the battle very, ''very'' one-sided.

* ''Fanfic/WhatAboutWitchQueen'' has it happen to both a nation and a character.
** Arendelle goes from powder-keg semi-cold war situation with Weselton to all-out war nobody wanted.
** Ferdinand suffers it so hard it's almost TraumaCongaLine. You'd think having to ferry a princess that hates your brother would be problematic enough. You'd think losing your ship - and losing your hand in the process - and getting stranded on enemy island with said princess would be bad. But then [[spoiler:he's captured and the only person that visits him in prison hates his guts. And then the stump of his hand gets infected with possibly gangrene.]]

* Being an Evangelion fic that tries to avoid the usual FixFic route automatically qualifies FanFic/AeonNatumEngel as this.
* Another Evangelion fanfiction, ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3709228/1/Oedipus_Ikari Oedipus Ikari]]'' plays this trope painfully straight. [[spoiler:When it looks like that Shinji and Rei are finally on course for a happy ending, Gendo orders Rei to break up the relationship [[ExtremeDoormat which she does]], albeit tearfully. Shinji reacts by [[ItsPersonal stealing a gun and shooting Gendo in the head]] [[UnstoppableRage several times]]. Rei is pissed but manages to forgive him. It seems for a moment that a happy end is ahead once again, then the author screws us over again by having Rei [[BrotherSisterIncest confess her genetic origins]] to Shinji[[note]]if the [[Theatre/OedipusRex fanfic's title]] wasn't already self-evident: Rei was cloned from Shinji's mother and by Shinji having sex with her thrice, UnfortunateImplications arise[[/note]]]]. Cue Shinji becoming so squicked for a while that he can't even look at or touch her without retching. He eventually decides to apologize and make up with her... only to discover that [[TearJerker she gave herself a lethal dose of anaesthetic]] so that her next clone can hook up with Shinji without prejudice... only for Ritsuko to confess that she destroyed all of the Rei clones an hour ago! True, the Evangelion verse is prime darkfic material but this is just plain ridiculous.

* Another Evangelion fanfiction, ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3709228/1/Oedipus_Ikari Oedipus Ikari]]'' plays this trope painfully straight. [[spoiler:When ''Fanfic/ScarTissue'': You would think that after TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt things can only get better, but they actually got worse for Shinji. In the [[AfterTheEnd post-Impact world]] some people hates him for getting the whole humanity killed and other people hates him for giving them the possibility to return, and all of them beat him when ran into him. Likewise, Asuka became completely unstable and unable to control her temper due to her ordeals during the Angel War and Third Impact -together with Shinji's actions and inactions during those events- that she physically and emotionally abused Shinji for eight months until she nearly got him killed. The fic starts right after that action, when she is so [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone horrified]] and [[HeelRealization sickened with herself]] that [[TheAtoner she decides to change and earn his forgiveness]]. Both children start to rebuild their relationship and it looks like that Shinji and Rei if they are finally on course for having a happy ending, Gendo orders Rei to break up the relationship [[ExtremeDoormat which she does]], albeit tearfully. break... but then it turns out that Seele has returned, Unit-02 has reactivated itself and it wants its pilot back, assassins-for-hire are targetting both Shinji reacts by [[ItsPersonal stealing a gun and shooting Gendo in the head]] [[UnstoppableRage several times]].
