** The plot of ''{{Anime/Pokemon3}}'' became this, since it revolves around Professor Spencer Hale, voiced by Dan Green, disappearing and leaving his young daughter alone; since his wife had also disappeared. [[TearJerker Dan Green's wife died giving birth to a boy and girl late in 2011.]]

* ''FourKidsEntertainment'', a rather infamous dubbing company ironically ended up being this when they went out of business. While many actually cheered when it happened, 4kids was actually the last haven of the SaturdayMorningCartoon block. After they went out of business, the CW temporarily replaced the block, but eventually scrapped it all together thanks to American governemnt wanting more kid-friendly educational programming.

* In-universe example: In ''{{Hellsing}}'', there's a scene during which Enrico Maxwell, the head of Iscariot, is being chewed out by Integra Hellsing for allowing her men to be killed by Alexander Anderson. He responds by saying, "Two men? If we killed two million of your worthless Protestant scum I would not have shed a single tear." It becomes a whole lot scarier in hindsight when [[spoiler:that's exactly what he does. The killing people, not shedding tears.]]

* Way back around Volume 7 of ''MahouSenseiNegima'', [[TheHero Ne]][[AdorablyPrecociousChild gi]] reveals his past: how, when he was four, he tried several times to get himself into danger so his DisappearedDad would show up and rescue him. One night, a horde of demons attacked his village, turning many people [[TakenForGranite to stone]] and slaughtering the rest. With only Negi and his cousin Nekane alive, his dad Nagi ''did'' show up and fight off the demons. Ever since, Negi felt that the entire thing [[SurvivorGuilt was his fault]], and that it was some divine punishment for his earlier actions. Asuna calls him an idiot and says that it couldn't possibly been his fault; one four-year-old cannot inadvertantly catch the attention of a demon horde. [[spoiler:And then, late in the Magic World Arc, we find out that the demon attack was specifically an assassination attempt on Negi's life, made by the [[EvilChancellor Megalomesembrian Senate]] because Negi was the son of [[SinsOfOurFathers two of the Senate's most powerful enemies]]. So, in short, the massacre ''was'' Negi's fault; they came there and butchered everyone specifically to try to kill him]].

* ''[[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]].]]
