* TheMovie version of ''Film/TheOdyssey'' has one where ''all'' of Odysseus' men drown in a shipwreck and he washes ashore to Calypso's island where she makes him her sex slave for ''seven years''. {{Homer}}'s original is told AnachronicOrder, so it's harder to pinpoint there.

** First round in [[Film/{{GhostBusters}} the first]] is when the Busters are eating Chinese takeout and Ray mentions that the business has just run out of money with that meal. That is exactly when the Sedgewick Hotel calls, desperate for their services; Janine at the front desk calls, "We got one!" as the enterprise is saved.

* ''WebAnimation/RWBY'': [[spoiler: Volume 3 ends with this, [[CerebusSyndrome made darker by how light the show was up until now]]. it starts with the [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath brutal death]] of [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Penny]] in Chapter 9 and only gets worse from their. First her death was broadcast across the world, and the resulting panic causes a ''massive'' influx of Grimm. Next the White Fang arrive on Cinder's orders with even more Grimm, and begin their own attack on Beacon Academy, led by Blake's former mentor Adam Taurus, who gives Blake a painful CurbStompBattle, and then ''cuts of Yang's arm'' when she tries to save Blake. Meanwhile Cinder finally obatins the Fall Maiden power by murdering Amber, and uses that power to murder Pyrrah, and destroy the CCT tower that allows Vale to communicate with the other kingdoms. By Chapter 12, Vale is wrecked, Beacon has been closed down, Ozpin is missing, Yang is ''deep'' the DespairEventHorizon, Weiss has been forced to return home by her father, Blake has run away again, and [[BreakingTheFellowship Team RWBY is scattered across Remnant with no way of contacting eachother.]] Of the four main cast, only Ruby has not given up, tracking Cinder with help from the surviving member's of JNPR.]]

* The climax of [[Anime/SailorMoon Sailor Moon Stars]]. Sailor Moon and the Starlights are the only Sailor Soldiers left. This is on top of the dark shadow of Tuxedo Mask's disappearance that's been hanging around for half the season. The HopeSpot is a dream as well, and really not that close to the end.

* ''Main/WolfsRain''. The last couple episodes are a never-ending barrage of this. As in, all the main characters die. And not just die, but die ''horribly''. One by one. Finally, it's just Kiba left standing against the BigBad. He wins, but he's dying. But wait! Cheza exploding into a pile of seeds! Yes, there is [[HopeSpot hope and joy at-]] wait, never mind. [[DownerEnding The universe really does die.]] All the characters you had some attachment to [[KilledOffForReal did face horrible, gruesome deaths.]] And the last thing you see is [[TheHero Kiba]] [[KilledOffForReal dying.]] [[ResetButton Except not.]] Only not really. See a whole other existence is apparently made because of this. [[DownerEnding An existence where only four of the main characters are shown being in, or at least convincing doppelgangers of them. You never really get to find out if the ResetButton was real, or just Kiba's dying dream. If it is real, it's never hinted at in any way that any of the characters shown alive still know each other at all, or where the rest of the gang is. If the rest of the gang is there to begin with.]]
** One possible explanation is that it really ''is'' a reset, but only the wolves are reincarnated in it (Darcia did say that it was "a paradise only for wolves").
%% ** The little black circle things? Those are seeds. In a world that seems to be undergoing an ice age and random geological phenomena. I'll buy the "reset button" but that doesn't really explain anything about the doppelgangers / protagonist look-alikes. Seems to suffer from Anime Ending Syndrome, which is to say it doesn't make much sense even on a symbolic level.
