** In ''Film/TheRunningMan'', another Arnie film, it looks like there's going to be an epic final confrontation between Richards (Arnie's character) and Sven, the hulking bodyguard of the BigBad Killion. [[spoiler:Sven, apparently disgusted by the reveal of Killion's treachery, [[BodyguardBetrayal simply walks away and leaves Killion to his fate]].]]

* The fight with O'Hara in ''Film/EnterTheDragon''. Up to that point, O'Hara was built up as some sort of ImplacibleMan but Lee took him down with just a couple of kicks.

* The standalone version of ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic the Hedgehog 3]]'''s ending is very much this, especially compared to the ending of [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 the previous installment]]: Launch Base Zone is nowhere as sinister or menacing as Scrap Brain Zone or Metropolis Zone, the recurring villain Knuckles is disposed of in a cutscene where Sonic does absolutely nothing, and the final battle ends with the Death Egg exploding moments after taking off. This is fixed however by locking the game on to ''[[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo Sonic & Knuckles]]'', making Launch Base Zone the halfway point of the game, [[{{Retcon}} retconning]] the explosion of the Death Egg, and featuring a [[LetsYouAndHimFight confrontation]] with Knuckles and his HeelFaceTurn, as well as a memorable AstralFinale.

* ''Literature/TransformersExiles'' ends with the Star Seekers, space pirates who hate Cybertronians, capturing Wreck-Gar and a group of Junkions, taking the powerful Requiem Blaster for themselves and being joined by Axer, who has intimate knowledge about the Autobots and Decepticons. [[spoiler: In the sequel, ''Transformers: Retribution'', before the main plot even begins the Star Seekers confront Megatron and his ship of Decepticons. However, using the Requiem Blaster causes their ship to quickly lose power and results in them being easily routed by the Decepticons and they don't show up again for the rest of the novel. Furthermore, Wreck-Gar and his Junkions are able to escape in the chaos of the battle while Axer tries to rejoin the Decepticons, only for Megatron to order that he be tortured and executed as a traitor.]]

* Definitely an example of writing themselves into a corner, the "Fake Kane" storyline ended by the real Kane beating up his impostor, de-masking him, and just throwing him out of the building. Mind you, this is ''after'' Kane ''lost'' to the fake Kane in a match but the reaction was so overwhelmingly negative, Wrestling/{{WWE}} just decided to burn the whole thing down as quickly as possible. No one ever found out who was under the mask[[note]]In reality it was the future Festus/Luke Gallows under the mask[[/note]], where it was supposed to go, or why the fake Kane had even appeared. He posed a legitimate threat to the real deal since he had successfully beaten him but he was disposed of in unceremonious fashion regardless.[[/folder]]

* Wrestling/{{KENTA|Kobayashi}} was known for his aerial offense early in his Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH career, which makes sense considering his "learning trips" tended to be to South American promotions, but after being pushed into the heavyweight division(in spite of hardly qualifying as one) he became known for making impressive leaps at his opponents...only to land next to them and deliver offhand kicks.[[/folder]]
