* In ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', Jack ''finally'' manages to return to the past and destroy [[BigBad Aku]] once and for all. All his allies and mentors from across the world sail all the way to Japan to celebrate his demise, and even Aku's own daughter Ashi is happy to see the monster meet his end.

grandma and the Queen's great niece, more because of the brutal nature of her death. The rest of the world was afraid of the implications this has for their home nations.

** In the prophecy of the future seen by John the apostle in the Literature/BookOfRevelation, the people celebrate the demise of the Two Witnesses who were killed by the Beast that arises from the abyss, even to the point of sending each other gifts, but this celebration is short-lived, as after 3 1/2 days the Two Witnesses are resurrected and taken up to heaven in a cloud, then an earthquake levels one-tenth of Jerusalem and seven thousand people die.

* In ''Literature/TheBible'', Jehoram's reign ends in a violent and humiliating way--his entire family wiped out by invaders save for one son and he himself killed by a lethal disease of the intestines. According to the Second Book of Chronicles, he was hated throughout the nation of Judah, and he was even dumped in a random burial ground in Jerusalem (unlike his father and grandfather, who had both mostly followed the ways of the Lord and upon death were buried with full honors, including memorial bonfires after they were interred, in the royal cemetery) following his ignominous demise. Considering he had murdered all of his own brothers (all stated to be better men than he was) to become King of Judah in the first place (on top of all the idol worship he imported from the Nation of Israel), it was little surprise he went out the way he did.

* In ''Literature/TheBible'', ''Literature/TheBible'':
** The Israelites are pursued through the Red Sea by Pharaoh and his army during the Exodus, while God keeps the waters held back and the pursuing army from gaining any advantage. Then after the Israelites have finished crossing safely, God let loose the waters of the Red Sea, and Pharaoh and his army are all drowned. The Israelites when they see this happening waste no time singing praises to God for the victory delivered through His mighty hand.
