** [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4 Two games later]], [[spoiler: it is revealed that the victim was a birthday boy whose skull is shoved into the mouth of an animatronic by his older brother. To add insult to injury, he ''really'' detests the pizzeria and never wanted to have a birthday party there.]]

To add insult to injury, he ''really'' detests the pizzeria and never wanted to have a birthday party there. Though there are some hints that this wasn't actually the Bite of '87 but instead a separate incident, meaning Freddy Fazbear's could have been the host to at least ''two'' cases of this trope.]]

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'': Ted is guilty of causing this twice with his ex-girlfriend Natalie, both times not even being aware that it was her birthday. The first time he breaks up with her, he does it by leaving a message on her answering machine, which is played in front of everyone at her surprise birthday party. The second time, he does it publicly in a restaurant, again not even being aware that it was her birthday. Understandably upset he did it twice and didn't even consider it was her birthday both times, Natalie uses her Krav Maga skills to beat him up.

*In the episode “Eat, Spray, Linda” on ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'', it’s Linda’s birthday and she’s having a rough day. While her family works hard to make a perfect spa day, she’s sent out to fetch groceries so she doesn’t peek and ruin the surprise. She ends up stuck behind a woman at the counter who takes forever to buy her items (and stole her place in line!), has the family car pinned between two giant vehicles in the parking lot, locks her keys and phone in the car by accident and herself out of the vehicle as a result, gets gum in her hair, no one will give her the time of day to use their phone to call home, rips her pants and ends up wearing a grocery bag as a diaper, ends up on a bus going to the wrong wharf and ends up hours away, walks home for miles on end, gets sprayed by a skunk (presumably by two separate skunks or by the same skunk twice), breaks her glasses, has to ride in the back of a horse trailer to get close to home, and runs into the same snooty woman at the grocery store, refusing to let her have passage through a street blocked off for a chalk festival all because she hadn’t been “nicer” in line, and is called a hag not two minutes later.
**It gets better at the end after her family, who have spent hours looking for her, come home to find her crawling through the kitchen window she just broke in through and finally is able to have her spa day. And Bob learned more about her in the hours he spent searching for her from various places and people, partially thanks to the kids Gene, Louise, and Tina.
