* In the first ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni'', the main character does a mission for the Cat King and you have to beat the Mouse King for it. It's cartoony. It's really early on and afterwards it never comes up again. Then in the sequel, centuries later, the Mouse species have launched a coup that ''kills'' the current Cat King and a good number of his loyal catperson troops. Later in the game, this is revisited. While it's not seen as justified; it's considered in-game as understandable and forgivable. Such to the point of letting the Micepeople continue being in charge.

* In ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'', E-123 Omega wants to [[http://d-author.tumblr.com/post/153271826717/this-whole-dialogue-is-a-gift destroy]] [[https://hunnidpisanenchilada.tumblr.com/post/146826694186/aww-shadow-cares-about-omega Eggman]] but Tails states that Eggman is an ally and Omega only backed down on his closest friends, Shadow and Rouge's behalf. Then ''VideoGame/SonicForces'' has Shadow allying himself with Eggman to spread panic and disorder throughout the world.

[[labelnote:Really?]]Not really; the Shadow siding with Eggman is a copy created by the Phantom Ruby, while the real Shadow still opposes him.[[/labelnote]]

* ''VideoGame/MegaManX'':''VideoGame/MegaManZero'':



** In ''VideoGame/MegaManX2'', Zero, [[spoiler:freshly BackFromTheDead]], ''very easily'' destroys a weak clone of himself that the BigBad made. Cue ''Zero 3'', where [[spoiler:Omega (the same one mentioned above) is the original body of Zero, while ''TheHero'' is the clone]]. But it was subverted, [[spoiler:the clone Zero didn't mind the irony of the situation he was in, and goes on to defeat Omega Zero ''easily''. Also, TheHero may be using a duplicate body, but the mind is real; he is still the ''real Zero''. Omega Zero is now just a mindless puppet]].

** It is worth nothing though, that both examples above have since been reverted by the time of the sixth game (Phoenix was reinstated as a lawyer who is considered legendary among people, and Ema became a succesful forensic investigator who also got to keep her detective job), efectively subverting this trope.

* Meta-examples from ''VideoGame/YoKaiWatch'':
** A sidequest in ''Yo-Kai Watch 2'' involves the player being given a filmstrip of a cartoon, with the theater owner lamenting that it hasn't been doing well since it's a black-and-white cartoon in an age where color is getting more common. It stings more after the game itself sold well below expectations in the US, with many debates about the future of the series going on; including a potential Western release of ''Yo-Kai Watch 3'' (which had elements made to appeal to players in the US in a bit of {{Irony}}) being teased at the end of the game now facing an uncertain fate.
** When promoting ''Yo-Kai Watch 2'' at E3 2016, Akihiro Hino suggested that [[TemptingFate the games would follow the same pattern as they did in Japan]], and that the series would "bloom like a flower" in a year's time. Fast-forward a year, and the sequels not only wound up selling significantly less than they did in Japan; [[http://nintendoeverything.com/level-5-ceo-on-current-state-of-the-yo-kai-watch-series-wants-to-bring-back-older-players/ but the series also experienced a decline in popularity there that has caused Hino to reconsider the future of the series.]]

* A joke about KerbalSpaceProgram is that rocket instabilities are caused by not enough struts. In June 28 2015, a SpaceX Falcon 9 disintegrated because of a failure of a strut. That being said, many landing in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvim4rsNHkQ SpaceX Failure Video]] are all too familiar to players who tried to do SpaceX builds themselves.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Diana Allers says "Have you ever seen how fast an e-democracy can turn on its allies?". After the game came out, everyone saw...a lot of people online were upset at Bioware for the controversial ending. And for bonus points, several gaming press articles turned on the critcs as "entitled" and the like.

** "This is all Joker's fault! What a tool he was! I have to spend all day computing pi because he plugged in the Overlord!" Cue the Overlord DLC where [[spoiler: David, who's been forcibly plugged into a VI and kept alive with machines, spends all day computing Pi as part of an experiment conducted by his own brother. And to just add cruelty, he's autistic and has to communicate with hundreds of geth at the same time, which is torture to him.]] Untill Shepard rolled along, [[AndIMustScream he had no way of freeing himself]] and the "MAKE IT STOP!" screams were both TearJerker and terrifying at the same time.
