* Played straight by [[spoiler: Snake while talking to Raiden in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'']], and [[spoiler: a weird series' of aversions]] in ''MetalGearSolid4'', where it's always made clear by [[BadassGrandpa Old Snake]] that once he's done with his one final mission, he'll retire to die alone. [[spoiler: (Otacon even says this to Sunny after [[BattleCouple Johnny and Meryl]]'s wedding)In a weird twist of this trope, we get to see what he does after leaving, which is to [[DrivenToSuicide kill himself]] to prevent a mutagen [[TheVirus FOXDIE]] from spreading. Then [[RetiredBadass Big]] [[TwistEnding Boss comes out of nowhere]] and gives him a CQC Hug, tying up all loose ends in the plot, and Snake comes back with Otacon, according to TheStinger, thus averting the trope]]

* Five of the seven books in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' involve the heroes being sent back to England in the end. Averted in ''The Horse and His Boy'' because the main characters were natives, and in ''The Last Battle'' where [[spoiler:they were DeadAllAlong]], so going back wasn't an option.
