** At the end of Part 2 [[spoiler:Kars, Who is seemingly facing death by Nazi UV Spotlight cannon, Quickly turns around with a fully assembled stone mask complete with Red Stone of Aja. The UV rays fired at him shortly after did not kill him, but in fact made him [[InvincibleVillain wholly invincible,]] and fulfilled his original plan.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' episode "Ballin" has Riley coming close to [[BrokenWinLossStreak finally winning a game]] when [[spoiler:the mentally challenged replacement center for his main competition turns out to be a child-prodigy at basketball]]. Of course, [[spoiler:[[LaserGuidedKarma he ''really'' deserved that]], since he got that far by sending the previous center off crying when told her her mom did cocaine, was cheating on her dad at the country club, and her parents were waiting until after her birthday to tell her they were getting divorced]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'': Poor Bunny. [[spoiler:He's first eaten by a snake, then Geoff tries to catch the snake in order to get Bunny back, when an eagle swoops in and captures said snake. Geoff gets another chance when the eagle lands at the edge of the dock, when ''a shark'' jumps out and snatches up not only the eagle with the snake with Bunny inside, but a sizable portion of the dock as well. All this, in a parody of ''reality TV''. Damn.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace'', [[spoiler: the double elimination that sent the Rockers home wasn't announced until ''after'' they had reached the Chill Zone and narrowly avoided last place. It's also the only double elimination in the whole series and comes straight after Spud finally got some CharacterDevelopment and stopped being TheLoad.]]

Although Bunny's demise has dramatic consequences, the incident itself is played for laughs.

* The early episodes of ''WesternAnimation/{{Sealab 2021}}'' also always ended with the ''Sealab'' exploding. The most notable example of this trope is the episode that's just an episode of the original ''Sealab 2020'' series, and so it's fairly normal and has a happy ending. Then the Sealab explodes thanks to bad directions.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' series,
** The first game ends with [[spoiler:you killing Diablo and ramming his soulstone into your own head so you can contain him with your mind. It did not work so well.]] In fact, Diablo possessed the hero and used his power to strengthen himself so he could escape the dungeon and revive the other Prime Evils.
** The second game ends with [[spoiler: you killing the last of the three Prime Evils, Baal, just ''after'' he corrupted the Worldstone, the thing that keeps the demons out of the world. Archangel Tyrael goes for the lesser of two evils and destroys the corrupted Worldstone; the one you've fought so hard over to protect.]]
** ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', Blizzard has revealed that the destruction of the Worldstone ''also'' blew up the entire mountain, destroyed the barbarian capital, and turned the continent into a nuclear wasteland. By the way, the Worldstone not only kept the demons out but also the angels because some of them view humanity as a taint on creation and are quite eager to destroy it. Instead of just the Prime Evils raising an army, a full scale demonic AND angelic invasion involving every character from either side with a name is about to occur.
*** After successfully sealing every Overlord in the black soulstone, [[spoiler:Adria]] impales [[spoiler:Leah]] with it, resurrecting Diablo and granting him the power of all 6 of his squabbling siblings. Cue demonic invasion of heaven.
*** The expansion begins with Tyrael rebuilding the Horadrim from scratch and sealing the black soulstone somewhere really, REALLY deep... only for an insane Malthael to barge in, slaughter a good deal of Horadrim agents, and steal the black soulstone with the express intent of using it for death and destruction. This ends about as well as you expect.
*** Also, the Barbarians took one setback after another. They were doing well against Baal but their leader (Kanai) died sometime around Mount Arreat exploding, then most of the barbarians starved to death or went insane, then the insane ones became cannibals, then the yeti bugs started mating season and then there was a Kazra invasion and then a cultist invasion. Really, for the past 20 years any time the Barabarians were on the verge of "resolving" their issues another threat came up and added a new flavor to the horde mix.

** [[spoiler: Omid's death]] at the start of Season 2 Episode 1. If it wasn't for a random bandit showing up at just the right time, a series of seemingly inconsequential if slightly silly choices by Clementine (one - [[spoiler: leaving her gun on the sink while she went to find her water bottle]] - which the player could have actually avoided if it weren't for it [[ButThouMust being preventable by the game]]), and the bathroom door closing just before [[spoiler: Omid could successfully disarm the bandit]], then it wouldn't have lead to the rest of the events of the first episode. Whats worse is that [[spoiler: the Bandit likely had no intention of causing any of them any harm. She shoots Omid out of panic and is so remorseful she practically commits suicide.]]

* The ending to Volume 7 of ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign''. Kyousuke has created the Colorless Little Girl, an artificial summoned being designed specifically to defeat his nemesis, [[BigBad the White Queen]]. The Colorless Little Girl utterly [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomps]] the White Queen, and appears to successfully kill her once and for all. On top of that, Kyousuke manages to settle the score with [[AbusiveParents his father]]. [[spoiler:And then the White Queen reappears, having somehow survived. To make matters worse, she reveals that this was AllAccordingToPlan. By allowing the Colorless Little Girl to defeat her, she's ensured that the Girl will be warped into a monster greater than the Queen ever was (this part isn't an AssPull, as the concept was established earlier in the series). To defeat the Colorless Little Girl, Kyousuke will have no choice but to work with the White Queen... [[TheBadGuyWins meaning that she's finally achieved her goal]].]]
