* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'':
** In "Blood Moon Ball", with Tom enraged by his plot having been thwarted, he starts screaming and the whole room bursts into flames, making it seem like an epic battle with the demon will ensue. Then Star nonchalantly freezes him in a block of ice, with less effort than it takes to beat Ludo's notoriously incompetent {{mooks}}.

* Quite a few fights in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' have gone this way recently.

to:

* Quite This actually happens pretty frequently in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', especially toward the end of arcs. Kubo will normally set up a few lot of battles to give whatever of the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters are still standing something to do. Once the final battle is over, the resolution of the fights in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' have gone set up during this way recently.time oftentimes taking place off screen, some of them even going so far as to not even reveal who won.
** At the end of the Arrancar arc, Yammy becomes a {{Kaiju}} and demolishes Rukia, Renji, and Chad (in the manga, off-panel no less) and tanks everything Ichigo can throw at him and more. Once Kenpachi and Byakuya take over, they treat him as a joke and spend half the fight focusing on each other. Even after he transforms again into something even bigger, the end of the arc reveals that they simply killed him off screen.


Added DiffLines:

** Due to the manga's early cancellation, the final fight with Yhwach goes shorter than it was likely originally intended. The last leg of it in Soul Society takes only a few chapters, ending with a last-minute power-up from Uryu turning his powers against him and giving Ichigo a chance to cut him down.

* "VideoGame/{{Firewatch}}". The game has creepy events taking place in a national park with the protagonist trying to get to the bottom of them. [[spoiler: It turns out that the stalker was just a grieving father who's son died in a caving accident, and was trying to scare people away from the body, all of the games choices won't impact the ending either which has caused a rift on forums discussing the game.]]

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' hilariously {{lampshades}} this trope in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0600.html its 600th strip]].[[note]](Warning: Major spoilers before the joke is made.)[[/note]] In fact, Anticlimax is deliberately invoked by Elan in dealing with the DangerouslyGenreSavvy Tarquin. [[spoiler:Rather than fighting him in a climactic father-and-son battle as Tarquin wanted, Elan chose simply to strand him in the middle of the desert, thereby leaving their story arc with no real resolution, and [[VillainousBreakdown Tarquin screaming about how this isn't how things are supposed to end.]]]]

* The poem "A Perfect Afternoon" from ''The D- Poems of Jeremy Bloom'' by GordonKorman. The narrator talks about how he's feeling very creative today and all the wonderful things he could do. For example, he could hollow out a tree to build a kayak, carve a nearby rock into a famous sculpture, write an opera, or create a blown-glass masterpiece. Then in the last line, he reveals that he won't actually be doing any of these things because his father is making him mow the lawn instead.

* The apparent "climax" of ''[[Film/SpyKids Spy Kids 2]]'' is a ProfessionalWrestling style fight between AntonioBanderas and Creator/MikeJudge, complete with everyone else shouting advice from the sidelines. Seriously.

* Tuma from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: The Legend Reborn''. Even accounting for his BadassDecay compared to his portrayal in the comics/novel/online serial, his defeat was truly pathetic, considering how the characters previously reacted to him.

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': All through the Episode 101-103 arc, it was being set that there was going to be a huge epic showdown between Dororo and Zoruru. Of course, right when it was going to begin, Dororo revealed that he didn't remember Zoruru, and well, Zoruru just left. '''HE JUST LEFT'''.
** [[spoiler: Events in Volume 17 and Season 7 correct this error.]]
** This gets played for laughs too, several times. In the fourth movie, [[spoiler:the climax sees Keroro willingly undergoing the ritual to evolve himself into a dragon, and Shion starts reciting from the spellbook, as Keroro starts to glow and the music slowly builds up -- so slowly that Keroro catches a cold first]].
This list shows the last 10 events of 440. Show all.
