* Even aside from the substantial amount of philosophical musings on this trope (where it is nearly referenced by name), SergeyLukyanenko's ''Literature/NightWatch'' has more than its fair share of examples. Early on, for instance, the protagonist Anton runs into a seemingly random cursed woman on the metro who he tries to help out. Soon, the events at the beginning of the plot which seemed to be important are discarded to focus on her. [[spoiler: In the end, however, it turns out that everything that happened was part of a plot to recruit the woman, who turns out to be a future Great Sorceress, that is a magician of immense power, into the Night Watch. Including the (twice!) attempted murder of a child, and the possible deaths of every member of the Night Watch in Moscow.]]

* In ''Undertale'', the monsters along the way tell you a heartbreaking story. [[spoiler:Once upon a time, a child climbed Mount Ebott and fell through the barrier between the human world and the underworld. They were rescued by the king's son, Asriel, and happily adopted by his family. One day the child fell sick and, after begging to see the flowers of their village one last time, died, and Asriel in his grief absorbed the child's soul. He broke through the barrier and brought the child's body to the village, but the villagers attacked him out of fear. Asriel refused to fight back and, mortally wounded, returned to the underworld where he too collapsed and died. From then on the king vowed that all humans who fell through the barrier were to be killed, and promised to destroy the barrier once and for all with seven human souls.]]

* Assuming that there are no higher beings or deities, life will not last forever on Earth. Unless humanity can perform some miracle, it, along with every other species on the planet will die out due to natural causes, possibly climate change, disease, lack of resources, etc.
** The planet itself will meet its demise in two ways: first the sun will become a red giant and incinerate the Earth's surface, possibly consuming it once it expands outward. If the Earth manages to avoid being consumed by the sun when it expands to its white dwarf stage, its surface will freeze over forever as the white dwarf cools into a dead star.
** Possibly the ultimate real-life version of this trope: the universe is not going to last forever and will die itself. Eventually all of the stars will die out and the universe will either expand to the point that its energy spreads out so much a "Big Freeze" occurs, expand so much that every particle in the universe is ripped apart ("Big Rip"), and/or entropy reaches a maximum value that all processes end (heat death).

* A major theme in ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' as often times, the "truth" is not what you want it to believe. This is apparent in Chapter Four where [[spoiler: Gonta crossed the DespairEventHorizon by learning the truth of the outside world and the students didn't want to believe that Gonta was the culprit of that case.]]
