* The conflict in ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' originates when the public reject the traditional heroes, who won't kill their enemies no matter how deadly they are and instead turn them over the justice system to be dealt with. The public demand a new breed of heroes who are willing to permanently deal with threats such as the Joker and not being concerned about taking lives or deferring to the justice system. They get what they ask for, a new -- but unfortunately, the new breed of heroes are ''also'' not particularly concerned about collateral damage or what the public think about them, resulting in unrestrained metahuman warfare and the complete stagnation of human society. Suddenly, Superman's ThouShaltNotKill rule didn't look so bad after all...

* For most of the 20th century, African American community activists called for black neighborhoods to receive as much attention from the police as white ones did, and for drug dealers to receive harsh sentences. Both those came to pass during the crack epidemic of the 1980s; the consensus has gradually emerged in the 21st century that the resulting mass incarceration has made the community much ''worse''.

** This trope also affected the Democratic Party of Georgia in 2002. They still controlled the state legislature and the governorship then, so during the decennial process of <s>gerryman</s> redrawing congressional district boundaries they drew Republican Rep. Saxby Chambliss effectively out of his seat north of Atlanta. He took the opportunity to run for the U.S. Senate next year, unconstrained by congressional suties, handily defeating Max Cleland, the Democratic incumbent.[[note]]This has subsequently served as an object-lesson for both parties in the pitfalls of partisanship in drawing district maps.[[/note]]

The "deal breaker" that makes the wish not worth it also comes in a lot of possible flavors. Perhaps the character finds out that what they wanted comes at the cost of something they wanted even more. Maybe the element of their life that they wanted gone is really essential to who they are; maybe the wish isn't all (they thought it was cracked up to be; or maybe it just comes true in an unanticipated manner.

** You can also wish for any powerful quest artifact that's not your own role's such as the incredibly useful Platinum Yendorian Express Card that's normally obtainable only by tourist characters, but it will blast you for damage every time you touch it due to you being of the wrong role, so if you make this wish while low on HP...

* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', Misato wanted that her ward Asuka had enough free time to recover from her latest physical and mental wounds. Then [[spoiler:her HumongousMecha went berserker, hurt another pilot, and Ritsuko considered to fire her.]]
-->'''Ritsuko:''' However she sees it is not really relevant. I do find it ironic that you were so concerned for her having some time off and now it bothers you that after next week she won't be required to pilot again. In essence, you have gotten just what you set out to get.\\
'''Misato:''' Be careful what you wish for, right?
