* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'': In the sequel, ''Ghosts of the Past'', Harry gets hit with this ''hard'' when he darkly remarks that he ''hopes'' the then unknown telepath who intervened to keep him at Privet Drive to study him comes around and has a go, doubtless planning to wreak horrors on his person. Then he does. Cue the ''Forever Red'' arc, in which Harry is kidnapped, tortured, [[spoiler: his BlankSlate body is [[ReforgedIntoAMinion reprogrammed into the Red Son, the Winter Soldier's heir apparent]]]], hundreds of deaths, countless cases of MindRape to varying degrees, the geopolitical map of the mortal and spirit worlds being turned upside down, and worst of all, [[spoiler: the rise of the Dark Phoenix, an event which leads to more than a few mortals and gods concluding that Harry is an ApocalypseMaiden and too dangerous to live, while Harry is a slowly recovering traumatised wreck from the memories of 6 months of black ops horror.]] All in all, it's fair to say that that particular wish backfired.

* After the 2016 [=US=] elections, many people stated they had voted for Trump because they liked his plan to get rid of Obamacare... but then, when asked about it, they stated they liked the Affordable Care Act because it made it easier for them to have health insurance. They were shocked when they were told that Obamacare ''was'' the Affordable Care Act's nickname. The resulting House bill and proposed Senate bill were notoriously hated, with Republican congresspeople often hiding from their own angry constituents.



* In the 2016 U.S. presidential election, a lot of people, even some who weren't Democrats or even Americans, hoped that Creator/DonaldTrump would be the Republican nominee for president. Mostly because they figured if he were, it would be a shoo in victory for Hillary Clinton, as Trump was easily the most hated of all the Republican nominees that year. These people got the Trump nomination they asked for, but then Trump won the general election and became President.

* ''VideoGame/PAYDAYTheHeist'' has the Cloaker, a special SWAT unit who can instantly down players by kicking them. The sequel was supposed to have Cloakers, but they were DummiedOut due to them causing the game to crash if they kicked a player. The Cloaker was MIA for several months and everyone kept demanding for the Cloaker to return. The Cloaker eventually was brought back, still doing his instant takedown kicks. Most of the people that wanted the Cloaker now don't want him anymore.

* "Wish You Were Here", a 1953 story from the Creator/ECComics horror title ''The Haunt of Fear'', uses a variation of "Literature/TheMonkeysPaw" story: A businessman's wife discovers an enchanted Chinese figurine and wishes for a fortune. Learning that her husband was killed while driving to his lawyer's office (after naming her the beneficiary of a generous life insurance policy) and remembering what happened in "The Monkey's Paw", she wishes for him to be brought back to the way he was "just before the accident"; unfortunately, he's still a corpse since his actual death was due to a heart attack. She uses the third and final wish to make him "alive ''now'', alive forever!"...which condemns him to eternal pain and agony, since his dead body had been embalmed. Even her hacking him to tiny bits can't put him out of his misery. (The comic was later adapted for the 1972 movie anthology: ''[[Film/ECComics Tales from the Crypt]]''.)
