** [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS25E18DaysOfFutureFuture Days Of Future Future]] starts with Homer having an accident that kills him. At the funeral, where [[StalkerWithACrush Moe]] is trying to make his move on Marge, Professor Frink reveals he made [[BodyBackupDrive a clone body for Homer]]. A montage spanning thirty years occurs where Homer [[DeathMontage continuously dies and is replaced with a clone]], with Moe trying to make a move at each funeral. At the end of the montage during the most recent Homer's death, Marge tells Moe that his attempts are futile, to which Moe drops his kind bravado and acts like his normal {{Jerkass}} self while telling Marge off. It's then that Professor Frink comes in saying he can't clone Homer anymore. Moe even lampshades the trope.

Added DiffLines:

** In "The Million Hare", Bugs and Daffy were chosen to compete in a race on a television program for a prison worth a million. After a harrowing race, Daffy actually beats Bugs and crosses the finish line at the studio an inch before Bugs. The host then presents Daffy with his prize called 'the Million Box': [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a large crate containing a million little boxes]]. Believing the prize is worthless, he gives it Bugs instead...right before the announcer said that each little box contained a crisp dollar bill, resulting in Bugs winning a million dollars and Daffy feeling like a jackass.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' centered on Jack and a thief trying to steal a magic gem at the same time. The thief wants to sell it, Jack wants to use its power to [[SeriesGoal travel back in time.]] The episode ends with the gem being shattered in front of them. The thief is left sitting dumbstruck, while Jack, [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption being used to this kind of thing]], walks away almost immediately... seconds before the gem activates anyway, sending the thief traveling through time instead!

** Interestingly, there's a real life instance of this subverted to ridiculous levels. The exact location escapes me, but following a rumor of gold on a island, decades of treasure hunters have dug over a hundred feet down looking for the loot, because "If the previous guy didn't find it, maybe it's just a little bit further!" Considering that the shaft is now so deep to be prone to flooding, and the gold was supposed to be from the 19th century- Chalk this one up to not knowing when to quit, how would the original owners have put gold hundreds of feet down?

*** Long story short: Due to the finding man made obstacles, they know something is buried down there but no one has been able to get to it (or, now days, even figure out where the original pit was).
