* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf TheMovie 1: Big Trouble In Nekonron, China'', the Chinese girl Lychee has been waiting all her life for the legendary prince that will come seeking the legendary scroll she possesses, presumably to make its owner his bride. She waited so long, devoting so much of her life to the fantasy, she basically lost her entire childhood. When she finally gets fed up with waiting and hunts down the man responsible for spreading such an awful lie to her family (and giving them the scroll), she hurls her scroll at him in rage, only to have it picked up by another girl ''two seconds'' before the prince, surprise surprise, shows up.

* Wally West, TheFlash, got in a fight with a super-villain in a department store that resulted in a fire, and did a quick run-through to get any innocents out. He quit looking too soon, and a woman got horribly burned. She sued, and although Wally was acquitted of any responsibility, he blamed himself for his failure and tried to become even faster so he could be everywhere at once.

** In "The Million Hare", Bugs and Daffy were chosen to compete in a race on a television program for a prize worth a million. After a harrowing race, Daffy actually beats Bugs and crosses the finish line at the studio an inch before him. 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 to 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.
