* 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.

Exceptions are when FailureIsTheOnlyOption, or your would-be streak breakers get [[DiabolusExMachina diabolically]] unlucky...or [[IdiotBall stupid]]. In other words, if the opposition wins, it's by luck rather than skill.

* As noted below again, the Chicago Cubs hadn't won the World Series in 108 since their win in 1908... up until the 2016 World Series, where after several close calls (ending Game 4 with Cleveland one game away from winning the world series, losing a 6-3 lead in the 8th inning of Game Seven), the Cubs managed to pull ahead by two runs in the top of an ''overtime 10th Inning'', and kept a one run lead to claim the title of 2016 World Series Champions.

* Cleveland sports as a whole has been teased with championships since the Browns won the NFL championship in 1964. The Browns were in four AFC championship games in the 1980s, going down to memorable moments like Red Right 88, the Drive, and the Fumble. The Indians had their try in the '90s, reaching two World Series, but losing both (in 1995 to the Braves, and in 1997 in a memorable 9th inning collapse in the 7th game to the Marlins). The Cavaliers have had chances with [=LeBron=] James, but were swept by the Spurs in their first Finals appearance in 2007, and after several near misses, one Decision, and one reconciliation, the Cavs and [=LeBron=] are back in the Finals again... (They lost again.)

And then, the 2016 World Series was a rollercoaster for them, as they had a 3-1 lead in terms of Games Won by Game Four, only for the Cubs to start winning game after game; managed to catch up to the Cubs' three run lead in the bottom of the eigth of Game Seven, all culminating in the Cubs scoring two runs in the top of an overtime 10th inning, but the Indians only scoring one run in the bottom, meaning that while the Cubs' losing streak had finally been broken, Cleveland's continued.

** Between 2005 and 2009, he had a hot streak of ''ten'' consecutive #1 hits on the country charts. This included a five-straight streak for singles off his ''5th Gear'' album, tying Rodney Crowell's ''Diamonds & Dirt'' for the country album with the most #1 hits (although one of Paisley's songs was a re-recording that was only added to later presses of the album). Then in 2009, after the mega-hit "Then", both "Welcome to the Future" and "American Saturday Night" stalled out at #2. (He's had four more #1's at ''Billboard'' since.)
** He had two more streak-breakers in the 2010s. "Camouflage" (2011), the last single off ''This Is Country Music'', became his first song since 2000 not to hit Top 10, and both the third and fourth singles off the polarizing ''Wheelhouse'' ("I Can't Change the World" and "The Mona Lisa") failed to make Top 10 either. The former didn't even make Top ''20''!

* Music/CarrieUnderwood had a 12-song streak of #1 hits on the ''Mediabase'' country charts, of which all but two also got to #1 on ''Billboard'' (those two being "Don't Forget to Remember Me" and "I Told You So", which "only" got to #2 there). In early 2011, "Mama's Song" put an end to the streak, when it became her first song not to reach #1 on even ''Mediabase''. Since then, the streak has either been broken or continued, depending on which chart you go by, and whether or not guest singles are included, further muddied by ''Billboard'' splitting its country singles charts into two separate charts after the second single from her fourth album, ''Blown Away'', was released. Either way, "Something in the Water" re-broke the ''Mediabase'' streak in 2014 when it also only got to #2 there.

** And depending on what ending you get in the last case of Justice for All [[spoiler: you can end up breaking Phoenix's winning streak as well. Note that the good ending actually has Phoenix ''losing'', because saving Maya and putting the guilty man behind bars is much more important than a perfect record.]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' episode "[[Recap/LittlestPetShop2012S4E2PitchPurrfect Pitch Purrfect]]," Zoe loses an audition for the first time, and in singing, which is her forte no less. However, it's not because there was a better singer, but because Zoe is a dog and tried out for a cats-only audition.
