** The new series handles the old series's occasional dependence upon AngstWhatAngst to keep the characters from being utterly destroyed (notable instances include the Fourth Doctor's apparently blasé attitude to the departures of Sarah Jane and Leela, and how none of the TARDIS crew even begin to process the unimaginable scale of destruction in "Logopolis", which included Nyssa's entire planet) by suggesting that maybe the Doctor ''does'' actually deal with that, through a combination of StepfordSmiler behaviour and forcible denial, because if he stopped to think about all of the loss he'd have a complete mental breakdown.
*** In fact, Matt Smith says this in regards to Eleven, that if he didn't act foppish and silly, he probably would've ''hung'' himself.

* 'Website/SCPFoundation'': Procedure 110-Montauk is one of the most horrifying (in-universe and out) [[NothingIsScarier [DATA EXPUNGED]]] procedures in SCP canon, regularly done to a young girl in order to prevent the world's destruction, who is then given amnesiacs so she forgets (and thus relives every run as the first time). When somebody pointed out her (censored) age range had two digits, they went back and made the lower limit a single digit number.

* The ''EccoTheDolphin'' series does this in ''[[DarkerAndEdgier Ecco: Tides Of Time]]'', (the sequel to the original game) with the questions the concept of time travel raises. The original had Ecco time travel into the past one time to [[spoiler:get a globe from past-Asterite to bring to present-Asterite]], and another time to [[spoiler:save his fellow dolphins from a Vortex invasion]]. One cannot help but think the developers noticed this left various questions about the effects of time travel in the minds of fans, because the sequel explored them in [[NightmareFuel frightening]] and [[MindScrew confusing]] depth.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' and their ''Ultra'' versions take a RealityEnsues approach to sidequests, including five powerful Eevee trainers from the past who in the present day all middle-aged, elderly, or in one case dead, and a woman whose husband died to his own Machoke in an accident. [[spoiler:Ultra Sun and Moon also touch on long-speculated things like what happens to Pokemon abandoned in the PC, as well as the thought of Ditto, a Pokemon that can theoretically mimic anything, replacing humans]].

* One of the main criticisms of ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' is how nothing comes of [[spoiler:Naegi defying direct orders from his superiors in the Future Foundation and saving the surviving Remnants of Despair instead of executing them]]. In ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'', [[spoiler: the plot is kickstarted by the Future Foundation arresting Naegi for treason.]]

*** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E6TheWomanWhoLived "The Woman Who Lived"]] has Ashildr explicitly calling him out for leaving a mess behind him. [[spoiler: She decides that she's going to spend her time as an immortal cleaning up his messes and protecting ordinary people from ''him''.

** In season 5, there are cracks in the universe which were first discovered in Amy's house, and those who get absorbed into the cracks were erased from existence. Amy never explained what happened to her parents, but it was [[IKnewIt widely speculated that they were erased. It was confirmed]] in "The Big Bang", and [[ResetButton they returned.]]

** The deconstruction of DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou. What kinda guy ditches his elementary-school-aged son and doesn't write or call until he says "Hey, there's this HumongousMecha we need you to use to go beat up monsters with city-wrecking power?" Somebody who's not a contender for dad of the year, that's who.

** Ever wonder why the villains don't use the Pokemon they own on people directly if Pokemon are so powerful, according to the Pokedex? Well, in the fangame VideoGame/PokemonReborn, they do, ranging from a few broken ribs (the ''best-case scenario'') to death [[spoiler: to getting our soul burned away to nothingness]]. They even have machines that can amplify the powers of Pokemon, and the ''first'' one you find (on a Pokemon that's not even that strong, to boot) has ravaged an entire city area! Just imagine if they hooked the machines up to a Pokemon like [[MightyGlacier Tyranitar]] or [[UnstoppableRage Gyrados]]...

** Then when the ''Literature/HyruleHistoria'' artbook was released, it confirmed that a ''third'' timeline existed that fans rarely acknowledged; if Link failed and died. This led to the "degradation of Hyrule" timeline that follows Hyrule after Ganondorf reaches and corrupts the Sacred Realm. This timeline where TheHeroDies spans several millennia as things go from bad (''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast Link to the Past's]]'' WorldHalfFull) to worst (''Zelda I and II'', where society was seven mildly populated towns among a massive barren wasteland of monsters).
