* Similarly, in ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'', Randle [=McMurphy=] spectacularly sticks it to [[TheMan "the Combine"]] but [[spoiler:is [[{{Lobotomy}} lobotomized]] in retribution. Fortunately, his display of courage inspires his buddy "Chief" Bromden to bust out of the mental institution where they were committed]].

* Every game in the ''[[Franchise/DarkSouls]]'' series has situations like this, especially in its endings [[spoiler: given that the Cycle of Light and Dark and the Undead Curse that comes with it will only end when the world dies.]] Notable examples include Artorias the Abysswalker's fate, The Ivory King's sacrifice, and the fate of Prince Lorian after he Linked the Fire with his brother Lothric.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': Levi is left injured and sidelined after [[spoiler:blocking an attack from the Female Titan]]. He still manages to win the fight, as evidence of how deserving he is of his WorldsStrongestMan reputation. Eren also tends to do this constantly whenever he [[spoiler:fights other Titans, but it rarely slows him down for long since he has a HealingFactor]].

** Aslan specifically mentions that the "Deep Magic" which predates them both was carved onto the stone table. WordOfGod (not that one) says this was a reference to Moses's stone tablets, and the shattering was an end of the old religion of Narnia and the beginning of the new. It was the Witch's own actions which triggered this event.

* {{Bloodborne}} is a cosmic horror story wrapped up in a bittersweet game where there are no happy endings for anyone. The worst end comes in the hardest-to-reach ending [[spoiler:where, after killing the Moon Presence, you become the new child of the eldritch entities. Given that even when they try to help humanity things still go wrong, it's not hard to imagine that your new form will have a very negative effect on the planet as a whole]].

* In the Franchise/SpiderMan storyline "Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut" Spider-Man's second fight with TheJuggernaut goes like this. Struggling to find a way to hurt him, Spidey tries ramming a tanker truck into him only to find it just made him angry. Ultimately Spider-Man manages to win the fight by tricking Juggernaut into a load of cement, but due to how Juggernaut's powers work (he doesn't need to eat, drink, sleep, or even ''breathe''), Juggy eventually just dug his way out. Keeping the latter part of the trope from being played straight, Spidey's confrontations with the Juggernaut after that were rare and handled ''much'' differently; in the most recent one, Spidey simply gave him what he wanted so he'd go away.
