* The comic version of ''[[SinCity Sin City: The Hard Goodbye]]'' shows Marv realizing that he was going up against the Roark family: a powerful crime family with many connections and no morals. Marv realizes that he's as good as dead but soldiers on anyway. [[spoiler:He even surmises that he'll probably end up strapped to the electric chair, which is his inevitable fate.]]

* Seth Brundle of ''Film/TheFly1986'' knows that he's screwed the moment he realizes that his transporter merged him with an ordinary housefly. It's only a matter of time until he mutates into something unrecognizably human.

* ''{{Persona 3}}'' ends this way. [[spoiler: All the heroes know that it is futile to fight Nyx Avatar. Sure enough, after fighting it, TheBattleDidntCount]]. Shouldn't be all that surprising because it's a MegaTen game and "Memento Mori" shows up quite a bit in the intro. [[spoiler: Its ultimately subverted by the protagonist making a HeroicSacrifice to contain Nyx Avatar.]]
