* The single-player campaign in ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII'' ends this way, with the protagonist launching into battle against the horde of Necris assassins that just killed the rest of his squad. Of course, being set in the ''VideoGame/{{Unreal}}'' universe, Reaper is probably enough of a {{badass}} that a few dozen heavily armed, genetically engineered undead assassins in their own capital city are just a minor threat...

* This was a recurring theme in the ''Series/BlackAdder'' series: The first series end with everyone but Percy and Baldrick getting killed, the second series end with ''everyone'', including the Queen, getting killed. The third series is the exception, as it ends with only ''one'' of the main characters the Prince Regent getting killed, and Blackadder himself presumably taking his place as the future King George IV. Finally, ''[[Series/{{Blackadder}} Blackadder Goes Forth]]'', the fourth in the ''Blackadder'' series, ends with Captain Blackadder and the rest of the characters about to make the "final push" on the Germans, although the audience knows full well that the war still has a year left to run. The series ends with shellfire and a fade to a [[UsefulNotes/ThePoppy field of poppies]], and an implication that they all died. However, some versions released on video show the characters dying bravely but uselessly, making a comment on the obsolescence of individual heroism in a new age of industrialized warfare. Many viewers found it one of the most touching endings to a comedy program ever written. It was first aired in the UK 10 days before Remembrance Sunday, without a single complaint.

One woman wrote to the Radio Times not because she thought it was in bad taste, but rather because she thought it was too realistic and ''depressing''.[[/note]]

** A ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' demo sort of invoked this, ending with Cortana and Chief treating the multiple Spec-Ops Elites opposing them at the end as a mere chance to make a bet. [[{{Badass}} Though you already]] [[SpaceMarine knew that he was going to]] [[OneManArmy be just fine]].

* At the end of ''Film/BoilerRoom'', Seth manages to get out from under criminal prosecution by cooperating with the Feds, but the movie ends just as Federal agents storm J.T. Marlin after Seth walks out, leaving it ambiguous exactly what happened to Chris and the rest of the company, or if any of them got away.

** There's an alternate take on this in the unused ending: [[spoiler:Seth makes the same deal with the Feds and leaves the building when a customer whose money he stole pulls up in his car with and walks in with a concealed gun. He misses Seth himself, but it's not clear if he went on a shooting spree at J.T Marlin after their brief run-in.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'': In Dark Crusade, the ending cinematic for each faction's stronghold features their base getting swamped by the player's army. For the Eldar, it shows Taldeer telling the surviving Eldar to run and hide, while she goes down the ramp to face the invaders. [[GoryDiscretionShot Then the camera tilts up into the sky...]] The drama is occasionally ruined when a KnockBack attack sends her flying back into camera range.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts2'' where after defeating Xemnas, Sora and Riku are stuck fighting an uncountable number of Nobodies. Subverted when a [[Main/TimeLapse time lapse]] shows them coming out okay, aside from Riku's broken foot.
