* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': In the penultimate episode of Season 5, [[BigBad Prometheus]] and his allies capture all of Oliver's friends and inner circle members. Desperate to save them, Oliver has no choice but to turn to several past enemies for help, including Malcolm Merlyn and Slade Wilson -- the respective {{Big Bad}}s of Seasons 1 and 2, and before Prometheus came along, the top two contenders for the title of Oliver's ArchEnemy.

* ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'': The First Flame is coming closer than ever before to dying, which has made the Fire Keepers and other followers of the old gods ''very'' desperate to keep it going, to the point that they are now resurrecting past Lords only to sacrifice them ''again'' to keep it going, some of whom were very evil indeed. [[spoiler:And then there's the Untended Graves and what it suggests. One theory is that, in Ludleth's time, the First Flame actually ''did'' die, and Ludleth somehow broke causality and time travelled to feed the Flame himself, which may be one explanation for how extraordinarily convoluted the timeline in the third game is.]]

* A possible result in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''. Your character may be the leader of the ThievesGuild, the [[MurderInc Dark Brotherhood]], have completed each Daedric quest (even the ones that involve murder, betrayal, torture, and cannibalism), and murdered hundreds of innocent people. But the Graybeards will ''still'' teach your character the way of the Voice, despite being someone that will doubtlessly abuse this power, because you're still the world's only hope at defeating the dragons.

** In the series' backstory, the event that led to the [[RiddleForTheAges disappearance]] of the [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] may have been this for the Dwemer. The Dwemer uncovered the [[CosmicKeystone Heart of Lorkhan]], the still-beating "divine center" of the [[GodIsDead "dead" god]] who helped create the mortal plane, deep beneath the Red Mountain volcano. Kagrenac, the Dwemeri "[[MadScientist Chief Tonal Architect]]," created the tools needed to tap into the power of the Heart and planned to do so with the goal of allowing the Dwemer to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence. Their [[EnemyMine enemies-turned-allies]], the highly religious Chimer, found out and believed this to be a blasphemy, so they attacked. According to [[TheRashomon one telling]] of the Dwemer's final days, Kagrenac only used the tools on the Heart as a last-ditch effort when the Chimer successfully infiltrated the Dwemer's Red Mountain stronghold. In his haste, he got something wrong, which caused the Dwemer to disappear from all known planes of existence in a single instant.

The first fully effective treatment for syphilis was to literally burn it out of the patient's body by inducing a very strong fever, and the best way to do that is giving them '''malaria'''. It was a widely accepted treatment for a time (apparently into the 1950s), even netting its discoverer Julius Wagner-Jauregg a Nobel Prize in 1927.
