* Creator/RoaldDahl concluded ''Literature/TheWitches'' with a more {{bittersweet|Ending}} form of this trope. [[spoiler:The hero is permanently turned into a mouse, shortened lifespan and all. He doesn't mind because he wouldn't want to outlive his grandmother, with whom he plans to spend his remaining years hunting witches.]] TheFilmOfTheBook made the ending more unambiguously happy, which [[DisownedAdaptation angered Dahl]] to the point where he stood outside his local cinema with a megaphone urging moviegoers not to see ''The Witches'' ([[http://www.mayonews.ie/comment-opinion/45-cmere/6417-the-season-of-the-witch]], [[http://www.universityobserver.ie/otwo/top-10-films-with-questionable-endings/]], [[https://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/friday-1127/Content?oid=1298906]], [[http://whatculture.com/books/9-times-authors-disavowed-adaptations-of-their-work]]). Mind you, this was mere months before the man died; ''that's'' how pissed off he was.
