* The Fanfic/TriptychContinuum installment "Unstable Sale", detailing the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Cutie Mark Crusaders']] attempt to fund their next scheme by selling off the remains of their previous crusades, opens with the line "The Crusade had a cost, and Apple Bloom was no longer able to pay." It ends on the same line [[spoiler:after the combination of looking over all of their failures, being confronted by countless ponies who have been harmed by their single-mindedness, and realizing how long it has been going on drives Apple Bloom to renounce the Crusade and try to actually think about her future]].

* The New England Patriots' 2003 season has an interesting take on this. They began their regular season with a 31-0 loss at the Buffalo Bills. When the Patriots faced the Bills again at home in Week 17, they ''won'' by the same 31-0 score. They would go on to win their second Super Bowl that year.

* During the 108 years of heartbreak the Cubs endured, seasons would end in two ways. Being obliterated out of the Playoffs (2007,2008, and 2015) or being very close only to choke in the end (1969, 1984, and 2003). What better way to end the century of heartbreak by being on the other side of the table, the team that many people count out after being down 3-1 in the World Series against the Indians, only for the Indians to choke and the Cubs coming all the way back to win the Series.
