* {{Parodied|Trope}} in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review of ''Film/MoulinRouge:'' he spends practically the entire review complaining about the movie before the WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick and Music/{{Brentalfloss}} convince him it is fine as a {{guilty pleasure|s}}. But this being a review of ''Moulin Rouge'', it needs to end tragically, so he randomly shoots Brentalfloss and mourns his loss. This is mocking one of their complaints about the movie, namely that Satine's consumption -- and her decision to break up with Christian instead of telling him about it -- seem like this trope.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' isn't shy about doing this either. First, Korra losing her connection to the past Avatars in the Book 2 finale, then the damage done in the Book 3 finale by the Red Lotus; topped off by Dark Avatar Korra following her around in Book 4 and messing her up, most notably in the Battle of Zaofu, where it forces her out of the Avatar State so she can be defeated. Then the grandaddy of all examples shows up: [[spoiler:a giant mecha that is impossibly fast and graceful that uses the also incredibly powerful spirit vine weapon as a wrist mounted laser]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Endurance}}'': During the final five of ''Tehachapi'' and the final four of ''High Sierras'', whichever team came in last in the Endurance Mission would automatically be sent to Temple unless they won the next Temple Mission. [[spoiler: Neither team overcame this obstacle.]]
** In ''Fiji'', the two teams who would go to Temple after the final Temple Mission were decided based on a [[LuckBasedMission drawing of nuts]]. The order which the teams finished said Temple Mission determined how many nuts each team would have in the drawing bag. Essentially, whichever team won the final Temple Mission could still go to Temple. [[spoiler:This was what got the red team eliminated even though they won the mission.]]

* ''Franchise/FatalFrame'':
** ''Fatal Frame I'': Miku has managed to collect all pieces of the Holy Mirror and managed to save her brother, as well as Kirie from her continued [[TheCorruption possession of the Malice]]. Kirie fulfills her duty as the Rope Shrine Maiden, keeping the Hellgate closed. [[spoiler:Out of nowhere, Mafuyu decides to not leave with Miku, but remain behind with Kirie, so that she'll never have to suffer alone anymore.]] Cue the uplifting, though bittersweet ending to turn into an abrupt TearJerker ending.
** ''Fatal Frame II'': Mio finally finds her sister and is ready to leave the village.

* ''Anime/OsomatsuSan'': Unlike the season 1 two-part finale [[spoiler:which simply hit the ResetButton and never looked back]], season 2 was one episode shy from letting the brothers separate naturally and finally turning Osomatsu into the proper big brother he never was...[[spoiler:Then Iyami, who was leaving the country to find treasure, crashes his plane into the Matsuno house and kills them all.]]

* The 1978 disaster film ''Avalanche'' leads this into {{Narm}} territory. After spending 3/4ths of the movie introducing us to the various characters in the film, the titular avalanche kills a vast majority of them because they don't see it coming. Then, by ''[[EpicFail sheer incompetence]]'' do many others die. The worst case is the male lead's mother. She survives the avalanche, survives the kitchen of the winter resort blowing up, survives suffering a concussion and going into shock and we're shown her being taken to a hospital. However, she doesn't survive ''that'' as the stupid driver decides to wipe out by driving down the hilly road like a madman, sending everyone except the leading lady to a fiery death. That's not counting the DisasterDominoes caused by the first responders racing to the rescue.

** The ending of Future Trunks saga in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', just when all seemed to be perfectly fine when Future Trunks successfully obliterates the degenerating body of Fusion Zamasu, Zamasu suddenly reveals that he can turn into an EldritchAbomination thanks to [[CompleteImmortality his soul still being immortal]] and starts covering the earth and kills everyone there with the exception of the Z-Fighters and soon begins to spread across the universe to the point that Future Zen'O is forced to destroy the entire timeline just to stop him. This ending not only cheated Trunks out of his happy ending but also makes the purpose and events of the saga virtually pointless as the only survivors of the timeline left are Future Mai and Future Trunks. Everyone else has been completely wiped out, not even having an afterlife as they were obliterated too by Zen'O

** Sticking with ''Super'', in the second to last episode of the series, Goku, who has just mastered Ultra Instinct, has beaten the mighty Jiren at the end of the Tournament of Power, throwing back his MightMakesRight mentality with ThePowerOfFriendship and is ready to ring out the Pride Trooper. Just as Goku prepares a blast to destroy the platform and send Jiren falling, his Ultra Instinct power craps out on him paralyzing him. Beerus lampshades this by pointing out that Goku had all but ''won''. The only thing that prevents this being this trope fully is that Frieza saves Goku when he's set to be ringed out, with him and Android 17 set to fight the weakened Jiren.
