\n* In the backstory of ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'', England's Gentle Chapman won the Gundam Fight an unprecedented three times in a row; the international tensions caused by England having control of the world government for twelve years running caused the next Fight to be put off for four years, and resulted in the other nations focusing on long-ranged combat (since Chapman was a ColdSniper). But then in the 12th Fight, Master Asia defeated Chapman with martial arts, breaking England's streak and inspiring the other nations to focus on hand-to-hand combat again.

** Predating ''Cars 2'', ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'''s streak of 100% Website/RottenTomatoes ratings ended when ''Toy Story 3'' got...[[EightPointEight 99%]]. The first two [[ComplainingAboutPeopleNotLikingTheShow critics with negative assessments]] (one of whom already had a reputation as both a CommanderContrarian and [[BiasSteamroller a Pixar hater]]) [[HePannedItNowHeSucks were bashed to death]], the third review only escaped with less flames for being released later.

* As noted below in the Exceptions section, Cleveland has had an infamous streak of sports championships as a whole since the Cleveland Browns won the NFL championship in 1964. ''That is 52 years of futility, close calls and heartbreak.'' It had gotten to the point that sports columnist BillSimmons as well as beleaguered Cleveland fans sending him fan letters made a RunningGag in his columns about how God hates Cleveland whenever the Browns, Cavaliers or Indians were mentioned, especially when it comes to decades of mediocrity in which the city has been mired for all these years or sad memories surfaced in said years. Finally, LeBron James rallied his teammates around him and came back from a 1-3 series deficit to defeat the Golden State Warriors in the 7th game in dramatic fashion to win the NBA championship. James finally delievered on his promise of winning a major title for Cleveland. This gets bonus points because it happened on Father's Day, of all days and James himself is a father of 3 kids!

*** Although he never topped Alabama, Portsmith, Ohio-native Earl Thomas Conley quietly established a lengthy streak of No. 1 hits of his own, scoring 16 in a row[[note]] -- discounting a pair of top 10 duets, including "All Tangled Up in Love" (1985, with Gus Hardin) and "Too Many Times" (1986, with Anita Pointer) --[/note]]. The streak began in August 1983 with "Your Love's On the Line," and No. 16 in the streak came in June 1989 with "Love Out Loud." A song called "You Must Not Be Drinking Enough" was a flop in the fall of 1989, stopping at No. 26.
** Music/BlakeShelton began his streak of 17 No. 1 country hits -- starting with the all-encompassing Hot Country Songs chart, and extending to the Country Airplay component chart -- in February 2010 with "Hillbilly Bone" (a duet with Trace Adkins). Shelton's streak continued to June 2016 when he peaked with "Came Here To Forget," his 17th No. 1 song. In the late summer of 2016, his wordplay song "She's Got a Way With Words" peaked at No. 7, ending the latest super streak.

This is because some stations objected to the line "[[YouPutTheXInXY she put a big FU in my future]]" and thus refused to play the song.



* Music/RascalFlatts' 2008 single "Bob That Head" broke an 18-streak song of consistent Top 10 country hits dating all the way back to their debut single "Prayin' for Daylight" in 2000; it was also their first song not to enter the Hot 100.[[note]]Although it only peaked at #18, their cover of "Life Is a Highway" from the soundtrack to ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' is not counted in this figure, as it was never officially released as a single.[[/note]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'', this is how the Bronze Kneecap became the Crimson Chin's ArchNemesis. He was once a speed-skater famous for a continuous streak of 3rd-place finishes, [[AlwaysSecondBest never quite being good enough to win]]. During a charity race, he was moments away from winning and finally breaking his streak when he tripped over the Crimson Chin, broke his kneecap, and came 3rd yet again. He vowed revenge on the Crimson Chin and has been fighting him as the Bronze Kneecap ever since (with equally little success).

* Music/OneDirection's streak of albums debuting at #1 was ended at ''Made in the A.M.'', when Music/JustinBieber's album ''Purpose'' debuted at the pole position for the week of November 13, 2015. It's especially ironic because Bieber was coming back from [[DeaderThanDisco a massive popularity drop]] -- one that began by 1D's meteoric rise to fame and takeover of Bieber's tween/teen demographic. Another streak of theirs that got snapped earlier in the year was their Teen Choice Awards winning streak -- they went in 19-0 and lost two of their ten nominations to Music/SuperJunior. Despite that, they became the biggest winning act in the show's history, and won all the nominations they got the following year.

* ''ComicStrip/FunkyWinkerbean'': During the gag-a-day era (pre-1992), the Westview High School football team's losing streak was legendary in Ohio, often having an absurd number of consecutive losses, virtually every one of them [[CurbStompBattle completely one-sided]] (and providing fodder to Coach Jock Stropp's pre- and post-game talks). The team would win on occassion, usually as the storyline dictated, but the game would quickly be [[Retcon retconned]] by the following fall (when most of the football-related strips appeared), or somehow the team would have to forfeit for a (typically comic-of-the-era) reason. Today, Westview is a generally competitive team that wins more than it loses.
