* ''[[Anime/HisCooolSehaGirls Hi sCoool SeHa Girls]]'' ends on an uplifting note as each of the heroines go on to become video game consoles developed by {{Sega}} and become beloved by the world. Sadly, reality isn't as kind: Sega has been out of the hardware market for years, and the SegaSaturn and SegaDreamcast were both commercial failures (the former suffering from a disastrous launch and the latter going strong for only two years before [[UsefulNotes/{{Playstation 2}} Sony stamped them out]]). The [[SegaGenesis Sega Mega Drive]] faired a bit better, but also eventually lost out to Nintendo.

* Early on in ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', Kenshiro faces off against Golan/God's Army, a brutal militia of men who believe themselves to have been chosen by God to found an independent nation in His name. They easily suppress the people of a desert city through fear and violence, and their leader cites the reality of the prewar government as the motivation for his beliefs. Following the rise of ISIS and other Middle Eastern Islamist militias in the 2000s - 2010s, this subplot has become rather home-hitting.

** And the Second Impact in NeonGenesisEvangelion is pretty close, on September 13th, 2001.

* In ''ThePrinceOfTennis'', [[NotAMorningPerson Ryoma]] oversleeps and arrives late to a match, and when asked he says "I was helping a pregnant woman to the hospital." Later in the story [[NiceGuy Oishi]] makes the same excuse, but he was actually telling the truth...and [[spoiler: since he caught the soon-to-be-mom when she fell down a flight of stairs, [[GameBreakingInjury he got a serious injury in his arm]].]]

This also makes the scene where Issei uses his Dress Breaker against Riser Phenex's peerage all the more uncomfortable to watch.

** One inversion involves [[spoiler: Homura's final confrontation with Sayaka. Telling Sayaka, essentially, that "If you do not pull yourself together I will put you down like a dog because your self-destructive misery is making Madoka sad." seems a sign that Homura has lost more than a little perspective. However given the revelations at the end of the episode, the threat is more "If you do not pull yourself together I will put you down like a dog before you become an EldritchAbomination and if we are lucky only a few innocents will die horribly before we destroy what is left of you anyway... [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and that would make Madoka sad]]."]]
