* 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 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.

** Unfortunately, the #1 streak came to an end for good with ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur''. It was also their first ''bomb'' and their first film ever to not be nominated for a Kids' Choice Awards.

* Tracy Lawrence had a #1 smash in 1991 with "Sticks and Stones", the first of 19 consecutive #1 hits for him. But after some domestic dispute issues and an ensuing lawsuit, radio dropped him like a hot potato, blunting his 1997 single "The Coast Is Clear" at #26. While he did spordically return to the charts afterward, his momentum was gone.

The TRS thread was subjected to the New Year's purge so the note's gone. As are the misuses.
%% Misuses of this trope are commented out, pending TRS decision.

%% * ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' broke the three-generation streak of final evolution Fire/Fighting starters with the Fire/Psychic Delphox. The other two starters are Water/Dark and Grass/Fighting, embedding a second elemental trinity. Additionally, this generation's Grass starter line is the first to be mammalian in appearance, rather than reptilian. [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Cynthia]] is nowhere to be seen despite appearing all games in the last two generations, The Rock gym is the second gym rather than the first like it usually is, and the Ice gym is docked by one being the 8th gym rather than the 7th. The pseudo-legendary is a single typed Dragon and is more defensively oriented. There are only three new Legendaries in the game with it reusing the [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue first 4 legendaries]] instead of a new duo and secondary trio, all the legendaries are shinylocked instead of just the plot-relevant ones and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking this is the first game in the Pokemon Franchise to have a worldwide release.]] This generation is also notable for being the first in which you can battle the regional professor.

%% * A non-competition example: Pope Francis, the first pope since 913 to have an entirely new name, first Jesuit and American pope, and first non-European pope since 741.

* Creator/{{NBC}} and Storyline Entertainment had a positive example regarding their [[TheNewTens 2010s]] series of live, made-for-TV musicals. The first two, ''[[Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic The Sound of Music Live!]]'' and ''[[Theatre/PeterPan Peter Pan Live!]]'', received mockery for their questionable casting, among other things. The third, ''[[Theatre/TheWiz The Wiz Live!]]'' boasted a cast with more extensive backgrounds in music and/or theater, and also addressed some aesthetic criticisms lobbed at the previous two musicals. Consequently, ''The Wiz Live!'' earned more positive reviews than its predecessors, and also scored higher ratings than ''Peter Pan Live!'' did.

* The longest winning streak in the history of any sport is the one held by the Americans in the America's Cup yacht race. The American yacht won every race held between 1851 (the year of the original America's Cup race) and 1983 (132 years of consecutive wins) when the Australian yacht ''Australia II'' won the race. The Americans won the cup back in the very next race, and have continued to be the dominant force in yacht racing (winning six of the eleven America's Cup races since 1983), but since 1983, no single nation has been able to establish the same sort of win record since the American streak was broken.

Note that this is technically an inversion of the trope for Americans, but straight for every other nation.
