* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' does this at least twice:
** Near the end of the Neutral path, [[spoiler: if you spare King Asgore, he'll offer to let you live in the Underground with him and his ex-wife Toriel. Then Flowey shows up, finishes Asgore off, destroys his soul so you can't absorb its power and pass through the barrier, ''and'' steals the souls of the other six fallen children, becoming the final boss Omega Flowey.]]
** Near the end of the [[GoldenEnding True Pacifist path]], [[spoiler: Toriel interrupts the battle with Asgore, all your friends show up, and it looks like things are going to be resolved peacefully. Then you learn Papyrus was told by "a talking flower" to gather everybody together... surprise, it's Flowey again, and this time he absorbs the soul of every monster in the Underground on top of the six human souls, returning him to his original form of Asriel Dreemur right before he goes OneWingedAngel and becomes [[TrueFinalBoss the "Absolute God of Hyperdeath"]].]]

** ''VideoGame/AceCombatZeroTheUnsungWar'': Yay, you shot down the belkan bombers carrying nuclear weapons and prevented a disaster ! "Read'em and weep, Belkans !" indeed ! But then, the music stops, a sudden flash blinds you, then [[ItsQuietTooQuiet silence for a few seconds]] as time freezes. Then your {{HUD}} gets all fuzzy, your radio is scrambled, the only thing you hear is a strange humming noise and a incredibly strong wind starts blowing. And then... You notice in the distance a second sun, strangely big and close to the ground... [[spoiler: There were seven more nukes.]]

* Twice in ''VideoGame/{{Cyberqueen}}'', [[spoiler:first when the protagonist seems to find another survivor in the navigation chamber, secondly when she escapes from being StrappedToAnOperatingTable and seemingly destroys the MasterComputer's core.]] This is a game that likes to get your hopes up before dashing them.

** Later games play with it. Retreating troops are not killed, but rather taken prisoners. Executing them is the easiest solution, while releasing them might be better in long term as it offers nice stat boost.
