** One of the earlier examples being ''The Kind Mama's'' house, in which the child protagonist discovers her online-friend, "Mama," is apparently stalking her and plans to kill her mother so she can be the protagonist's "real" mother. She manages to rescue her mother and demands Mama go away, and she does...Only to show up in the protagonist's house days later, having decided to simply ''kidnap'' the girl, just like she did numerous others before her.

** The ending of "Stanley's Cup", where the child hockey team comes to play with another and are brutally beaten each, and finally lose the match. Then TheLittlestCancerPatient, who waited this whole time to see the success of his team, dies. The winning team consists of professional adult players, who for some reason decided to jump in for the missing child hockey opponent. After the first brutal attacks, the referee tries to call it off, but the crowd believing the child team is some kind of underdog protagonist keep cheering for the game to continue and the ref allows it. After a bloody beating, the adult team is then declared the winner and cheer their victory in style of a 90's sports movie.

* ''Creator/NicholasFisk'''s book ''A Rag, A Bone, and a Hank of Hair'', although written for children, has an extremely dark final twist. Brin, the protagonist, has been interacting with the "reborn" family cloned from the past and living in a historical simulation, and come to appreciate their way of life more than his own futuristic lifestyle. So, great, he's learned about historical people, right? Well, no; Brin is then told that [[spoiler:he is also a Reborn whose memories were erased. The fact he ended up preferring the historical lifestyle is taken as a sign that, even with no preknowledge and given every advantage, Reborns cannot be integrated with the future society and are thus useless to it]]. To cap it off, he and the Reborns are [[spoiler:locked inside the simulation, and then all blown up.]]

* Being a SadistShow with a strong streak of BlackComedy, ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' has several of these endings. But special mention for this certainly deserves the ending of "Little Orphan Hero", where Captain Hero destroyed his home planet in revenge and raped his own parents. Even though many endings are {{played for laughs}}, often the humour [[DudeNotFunny falls flat for the audience]].
