* ''VideoGame/LiveALive'' has a brutal deconstruction in form of [[spoiler:Oersted. After everyone turned his back on him because of an accident he committed (killing the king), he is convinced (by his remaining friend, who died soon after) that there's one person that believed in him: The Princess. So long as she believes in him, he kept fighting. So he set off to save her, only to find out that the accident was orchestrated by a jealous friend, and when he killed the friend, the Princess said that she already lost faith on him and committed suicide in front of him. Oersted in turn ''[[DespairEventHorizon snaps]]''. Then in retaliation, [[FallenHero he becomes the Demon King that he fought all this time]] [[FaceHeelTurn and then killed everyone there and then tried to kill everyone from different timelines]].]]

* In one episode of ''Series/FullHouse'', Joey has a lucky day. First there's a newspaper strike, delaying publication of a review of a disastrous comedy show the night before, he wins two tickets to a concert after getting a call from a radio station and correctly getting the answer right, gets a date with the attractive cable lady who also installs a channel the household didn't have, free of charge, and he is given the opportunity to audition to replace a longtime children's TV show host. However, Joey doesn't know that the host HatesBeingTouched and after he's hired gives him a big hug, after leaving the host tells Danny that Joey is fired. This then starts his bad luck, as the newspaper strike is settled, he doesn't qualify for the prize tickets due to a relative being employed at the radio station, the cable lady has to uninstall the free channel and breaks off their date upon hearing that he can't have the tickets, which gets Joey to mention to Danny that he at least he got the job that he's unaware he was fired from, right before Danny breaks the news to him.
