** In a later episode, Orpheus' Master implies that this is what Dean will inevitably become if he and Triana Orpheus get together (at least at that point in their lives). Then again he might also be messing with her like he does with her father. They might fare better if they got together later (after they both grow up some), but Dean may have totally blown that in the following season finale.

** Biff is still hiding some deep resentment for George and his family, though, because his elderly future self in ''[[Film/BackToTheFuturePartII Part II]]'' steals the [=DeLorean=] and [[BadFuture changes history]] much to George's detriment. Though, by WordOfGod, not as much as he would have thought. The FutureLoser Biff was also a much better person, while the Perfect Future he created for himself also created a Biff who was cruel and vindictive.

** For the record, he wasn't exactly a jerk, just a little more fool-hearty than even Ron Stoppable. A PostScriptSeason episode proves that after going to college (after trying for seven years) his future apparently might be looking good.

* Less harsh example in form of Jim O'Connor in Theatre/TheGlassMenagerie--a successful high school football player now stuck in a dead end job as a clerk at a shoe factory. He's a nice guy and he is trying to get out of the rut but he seems to be going nowhere fast, though. Plus, he winds up being an InnocentlyInsensitive jerk to Laura towards the end of the play.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'': The Reverse Flash, a villain from the future, [[KickTheDog taunts Eddie Thawne]] by showing him that he lived his life without having accomplished anything major and failed to marry his girlfriend Iris West, to the point that he is considered a laughingstock by the future Thawne family, all of whom are successful businessmen, politicians, scientists, etc. [[spoiler:This backfires in a big way. Eddie decides to [[HeroicSacrifice kill himself]] to [[RetGone erase Reverse Flash from existence]], as Eddie was his ancestor.]]
** Eobard Thawne himself is an example. [[spoiler:He was once a major Flash fanboy who suffered a breakdown due to time travel, and is a childish man out to kill the Flash for extremely petty reasons]].

* In Music/AbneyPark's "Letters Between a Little Boy and Himself as an Adult" a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin child corresponds with his future self]] via something called a "Chronofax" and is disappointed to learn he becomes a bitter, cynical office drone. On the bright side the ending implies that the letters inspired his adult self to quit his dead-end job and try something new.

* Every future ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' episode has Bart as an aimless but upbeat Future Loser, though Lisa's Wedding (which looks furthest into the future[[note]]August 1, 2010...wait a minute!![[/note]]) intentionally subverts this by portraying Bart as a wrecking ball operator working his way through law school. According to an episode, the Simpsons are plagued with a "Simpsons Gene" that doom the men of the family to become pathetic losers in the future (though it doesn't stop the show from depicting Bart as crafty).
