* In 2016, [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} Britain]] held a referendum on whether to remain a member of the European Union. Much campaigning was had, and in a surprise result the "Leave" side actually won. Shortly after this was announced, [[http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-anger-bregret-leave-voters-protest-vote-thought-uk-stay-in-eu-remain-win-a7102516.html some]] [[http://www.people.com/article/brexit-voters-regret-uk-leave-eu Leave]] [[http://www.vox.com/2016/6/24/12024634/brexit-supporters-regret-vote voters]] expressed shock that it actually happened--they thought it would just be a protest vote, not actually remove Britain from the European Union.

* Man catches a goldfish and wished for riches, power, and a beautiful wife. Next morning he wakes up in an opulent palace, surrounded by splendor, luxury and obedient servants. A gorgeous woman comes into the bedroom and tells him: "Ferdinand, sweetheart, get up. It's time we go to Saraevo."[[note]][[DontExplainTheJoke As in Franz Ferdinand]], whose assassination in Saraevo sparked UsefulNotes/WorldWarI.[[/note]]

* In a rough flowchart of the endings for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', BioWare writer supposedly noted that he wanted the endings to cause [[MemeticMutation LOTS OF SPECULATION FROM EVERYONE]]. He/They got his/their wish; ''VideoGame/MassEffect3's'' ending is quickly becoming as infamous for being infuriatingly confusing and nonsensical as that of ''Series/{{Lost}}'' and that of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', the TropeCodifier for {{Gainax Ending}}s. They eventually released an Extended Cut that tried to cudgel most of it into making at least narrative (although not scientific) sense, presumably as an attempt to synthesise a wish that they hadn't made the first wish.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10917821/26/The-questionable-burdens-of-leadership-of-a-troll-Emperor The (Questionable) Burdens of Leadership of a Troll Emperor]]'', whenever someone in their empire expresses desire to not be ruled by Naruto and Xanna, the two offer them the chance. They can take all their personal belongings and be sent to a planet the two don't control. Most back down when they realize not having their rule also means not having any protection from the [[Franchise/StargateVerse Goa'uld]]. At least one group who took them up on the offer later were attacked by the Goa'uld.

** The owner in [[http://notalwaysworking.com/having-him-quit-was-just-a-bonus/38687 this story]] had been actively bending every rule he could to treat his employees generously. When one worker gets greedy over bonus checks, the owner simply gives them exactly what they'd asked for-- merit-based bonus checks (the greedy worker hadn't contributed to the project, and so got no bonus), and a departure without being fired (making them ineligible for severance pay).

* Happens very often in ''ComicBook/DylanDog''. A particularly sadistic example is Dust, a FallenAngel who was [[IronicHell sentenced to suffer by committing evil]] while being unable to understand it due his nature as an angel, searching for Ash, [[AscendedDemon a devil kicked out of hell]] and [[IronicHell sentenced to bring happiness by helping people have what they wish the most]], so Ash will be forced by his own punishment to make him understand evil. It happens, [[GoMadFromTheRevelation and Dust goes instantly mad]].
