* The first time Calvin reels in the canoe in ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'', it appears to be going good until it gets stuck on a rock. [[spoiler:It gets subverted when Calvin uses a ChekhovsGun to get it back to shore.]]



* ''[[http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/15769.html?thread=41731481#t41731481 Close Every Door]]'' has two. The first is when [[Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia Russia]] realizes that [[spoiler:America is insane and most likely is the one who kidnapped England. It's ruined when [[CassandraTruth no one listens to him]], thinking that he is just slandering America out of jealousy.]] The second is when [[spoiler:a witness tells Canada that a man matching England's description was seen carried into a house in Virginia, leading the nations searching for him to scour the state. Unfortunately America realizes that they caught on, and moves England to another state.]]
* In the ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime'' finale, Beth finally makes it into the heart of Moriarty's base to rescue [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Holmes]]. For a moment, he even seems pleased to see her. But just for a moment... because then he tells her ThatManIsDead. The scene rolls BrokenPedestal, BreakTheCutie, HeroicSacrifice, DrivenToSuicide, and FamilyUnfriendlyDeath all in one go.



* ''FanFic/MegaManDefenderOfTheHumanRace'' has this. In episode 11, chapter 7, everyone is geared up for a fight against Project G-2. There were heartwarming scenes before the battle, everyone is confident Mega will do his best, and he has the full support of the Robo-Commandos and the US army. [[spoiler:And then ''everyone but Mega Man is killed'']].
* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness Act VI'' has a brief moment of this during chapter 42. In an attempt to bond with Arial and win her approval, Mizore asks her how Dark was when she first met him. Arial softens toward her for a few brief moments to tell her the story... and then goes right back to her "Mizore isn't worthy of Dark" mentality as soon as she's done, much to Mizore's irritation.

* In ''FanFic/{{Asylum}}'' Twilight would sometimes get a sense of comfort from elements of the world she woke up in are more familiar to her world before it hits her with a cold reminder that she isn't in her world anymore. One example is when she sees Pinkie Pie the first time (since she first woke up in the hospital) and is relieved that she is the same pony (sans her now always straight hair) she knew from Ponyville. [[spoiler: The one difference that killed it was a massive scar covering Pinkie's cutie mark.]]

* ''FanFic/ABrighterDark'': Despite being surrounded and outmatched, Subaki and Hana continue to hold their own against Nohrian soldiers, fighting with all there power to protect Sakura and Mozu from a FateWorseThanDeath. They are more than successful, and it almost looks like they might just pull it off, [[spoiler: when a mage zaps Hana with lighting, killing her instantly with one hit. Subaki shouts, and is axed in the back by Hans. Then Sakura and Mozu are knocked out and taken captive by the soldiers who were known practitioners of Rape, Pillage, and Burn and everything fades to black.]]

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', Foxy invokes this when he gets a new crew member from a Davy Back Fight. The new crew member can cheat once during that Davy Back Fight, and that one only, to help their former crew.
** Cross invokes one on Spandam after his ToThePain speech, where he tells Spandam he's not going to do any of that to him. Instead, he's going to do something '''far''' worse: let Robin and Franky do whatever they want to him.

* In [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/325022/equestria-girls-friendship-souls Equestria Girls: Friendship Souls]], this happens with the Dazzlings. After Aria and Sonata are saved from the Grand Fisher, it seems like Adagio may finally regain her body back and they'll actually get to go back to Equestria. [[spoiler: Then Grogar shows up and forces Adagio to pull a HeroicSacrifice, (right after her HeelRealization, no less) turning herself into a hollow to save Sunset and the others.]] And you know what the worst part is? It turns out Celestia was willing to give the Dazzlings a second chance, meaning that if that didn't happen, they would've gotten to go back to Equestria.

* Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines has a rather cruel one in the expanded universe's Whitney oneshot. A challenger manages to defeat [[ThatOneBoss her Miltank]], and thinks he is finally in the clear. She then sends out a ''second'' one.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'' include quite a few. No surprise, considering the story revolves around the concept of hope.
** The Cobra Island arc in particular has these by the bucket-load.
*** The first game the protagonists face requires beating hordes of endless, regenerating cobras in order to save their captains from cages gradually becoming alit with magic fire. As time runs short, Marcellus decides to exploit a loophole and tells Tsuji to shoot down the cages at the spot where the fire originates. Tsuji, who is more than capable of doing such a task, becomes the second person to lose his powers (his aim, specifically) right before he shoots, making him miss and the gang lose the game.
*** The second game involves a maze. Despite one notable setback, Maka and company literally have the end in sight with plenty of time to spare. Then, the Ouroboros curse forces the Pot Twins to separate from Kilik, and two giant snakes threaten to kidnap them. Everyone stops to save them, but it eats up their remaining time, making them lose yet again when they could’ve won.
*** In the third game, the heroes must complete a large puzzle filled with confusing pathways by pushing them two heavy boulders into specific spots to take down a series of walls within the puzzle so that they can continue to the end. Once Rowena and Black☆Star, the only two people who can move the boulders easily and at a rapid pace, are BroughtDownToNormal, that’s pretty much game over for the group. This one is so bad that Kid doesn’t even decide to improvise with their remaining resources. He just waves the white flag (er, handkerchief) in surrender.
*** Despite the fourth game being the most dangerous, there is actually an epic aversion. Everyone must fight against shadows of the Meisters, which are not held back by loss of characteristics, abilities, or by morality – they even know moves that even the real deal do not. Some people make it out relatively fine, but Maka, Caius, Tsuji, and Rowena are left critically injured. Right when Kim is ready to heal them, Medusa uses Ouroboros to take her Regeneration Magic. She, however, thought ahead and made healing potions so that everyone can fight at max health. Take that, Medusa.
*** Turns out the arc’s climactic battle has the cruelest one of them all. While Kim keeps Medusa occupied and Kid deals with Free, Caius and Tsuji are assigned to retrieve the crystal ball containing everyone’s personality traits and powers. Tsuji manages to get the slip on Eruka and Mizune and surfs down a river carrying the crystal ball. At the mouth of it, which bears the waterfall Eruka was told to deposit it, Tsuji actually retrieves the crystal ball… [[spoiler: only for Tadpole Jackson to knock him into the water and cause the crystal ball to wash down the waterfall.]] This reduces Tsuji to tears of sheer despair, right after his usual confidence was briefly restored.

* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'':
** After several fights and disagreements Asuka and Shinji got together. They were still confused about their feelings and their relationship, and they still had arguments, but they were happy. Then in chapter 7 [[spoiler:the plane Asuka was piloting crashed. She survived but she spent several months in a coma and when she woke up, she was a different, angrier person.]]
** Later Shinji managed to stop her from [[spoiler:committing suicide]], and it looked like if he had finally reached her out and they could start to repair their relationship. The next day she ran away.
* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': When he arrived on Tokyo-3 Sinji was gradually getting what he always wished: a family (Misato, Rei), a girlfriend (Asuka), and friends. He seemed powerful and cunning enough to take down any enemy, and he and his fellow pilots worked together marvelously. Then [[spoiler:Rei started to behave like a jealous {{Yandere}} and broke their teamwork, his best friend got crippled and his girlfriend's best friend got killed. He got stuck inside Unit 01 and after getting retrieved he was in a coma for a month. During that time Asuka, Rei and Misato fell utterly apart. Asuka got mind-raped by Arael and was in a coma since then, Rei hang herself and blew herself up to destroy Armisael and Misato got jailed.]] Needless to say, when Shinji woke up, he was... more than a ''little'' angry.
