** [[GenkiGirl Nico]] asked [[FallenHero Taiga]] what he will do when he takes everyone's [[TransformationTrinket gashats]]. He simply answers that he will crush all Bugsters. What happens afterwards doesn't concern him as he doesn't see any other purpose in his life. Nico [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech gives him]] a piece of her mind regarding this later on.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the Chaos God Tzeentch is pretty much the god of "And then what?" As the god of change, he constantly schemes to bring about his dominance. Except by his nature any victory must be transitory or he can't actually seek it out, and it must be so transitory it's meaningless. Tzeentch doesn't scheme to win, he schemes to scheme and that's all he can do.

* Ankh of ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'' asks this of the other [[MonsterOfTheWeek Greeed]] in regards to becoming complete. Unlike the others, he's come to [[HeelRealization realize]] that becoming complete is a moot point because that still [[BeingEvilSucks won't satisfy]] them, and that he realized his desire something more: to be alive.
** The complete lack of understanding on their side disgust him even more than the realization.

* In ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'', antagonists Parado and Graphite are video game characters brought to life who want to kill humanity off as revenge for all the characters like themselves who get beaten and destroyed every time someone plays a game. Late in the series, [[TheChick Poppy]] asks this question, pointing that their entire reason for existing is to play video games and there'll be nobody left to do that if they eradicate humanity. [[spoiler:Parado ends up pulling a HeelFaceTurn after finally coming to understand the concept of mortality, while Graphite refuses to join the heroes. However, after they defeat him for real, he thanks them for allowing him to fulfill his purpose in life as a boss character.]]

* In the first arc of his "DC Rebirth" title, [[ComicBook/Aquaman]] battles Black Manta, out to avenge the death of his father at Orin's hands. Arthur allows Manta to put his spear to Aquaman's throat and then asks what Manta's life will be like once he does it. He points out Manta's only goal in life is killing Aquaman and there's no way to make his death worthwhile enough to overcome that hate. After a long moment, Manta drops the spear and falls to his knees, realizing Aquaman is right.

* This is often a problem with single-issue political parties. If they succeed in getting their platform through, they're usually left with little-to-nothing to stand for. So, either they adopt new issues, or they collapse altogether.
