* ''Enna Burning,'' the second of the ''Literature/BooksOfBayern'', does this to the happy ending of ''Literature/TheGooseGirl." Just two years later the kingdom is plunged into war, the king is killed in battle, and Isi (the princess) has trouble controlling her wind-communication powers, resulting in the wind's nonstop "voice" nearly driving her insane. And this is just backdrop for the trauma that protagonist Enna goes through over the course of the book. Fortunately, they all eventually reach a new, [[EarnYourHappyEnding hard-earned]] happy ending.

* ''Anime/TurnAGundam'' ends up being this, despite its anti-war message being one of the best-executed in all of ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}''. [[spoiler:Because the Black History consists of all Gundam works excluding ''Anime/GundamReconguistaInG'', almost every single Gundam work is doomed to end in conflict and destruction of the world over the course of millenia. For one Gundam work to exist, the previous must have ended in failure for the protagonists. Ironically, one could argue that ''Turn A'' itself succumbs to this as it must end in setting up the Reguild Century.]]

* The original version of Creator/StephenKing's ''Literature/TheStand'', published in 1978, had a BittersweetEnding. Flagg's plans to destroy the Boulder Free Zone have been thwarted, Flagg himself has seemingly been eliminated in the annihilation of Las Vegas, and the remaining residents of the Free Zone are left to reconstruct the world as best they can....all at a great cost. Then in 1990 came the "Complete and Uncut Edition," which added a brief coda: Flagg's body may have been destroyed, but his essence survived, and he reappears to a tribe of natives to "teach them to be civilized." And HereWeGoAgain.

* ''The Paw Thing'' by Paul Jennings ends with Singenpoo the cat chasing over a hundred mice out of her owner's chicken shop. The owner is so grateful he vows to stop treating her so badly. In the sequel ''Singenpoo Strikes Again'', we find out that this change stuck for about a week or two and the owner is just as cruel as he was before, to the point of denying that Singenpoo had anything to do with saving his business.

* ''Literature/TheMoonMaid'' by Creator/EdgarRiceBurroughs ends with the astronauts repairing their ship and returning triumphantly to Earth, taking with them the moon princess their leader, Julian, has fallen in love with and leaving behind the saboteur who stranded them on the Moon to begin with. In the sequel, the saboteur returns to Earth at the head of a lunarian invasion fleet, takes over the world and kills Julian -- all in the first chapter, after which the story skips ahead a century to show life under the invader's yoke. (Burroughs had actually written the atypically grim tale of Earth under alien overlords first, but couldn't find a buyer for it, so wrote ''The Moon Maid'' as a more usual Burroughs adventure tale to create demand for the sequel.) If you take into account all the CanonWelding Burroughs did in later years, the lunarian invasion also counts as a happy ending override for the characters of the ''Literature/{{Tarzan}}'' and ''Literature/{{Pellucidar}}'' series, along with several other lesser-known works, or at least for their descendants.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'' was originally intended to run for two seasons and two seasons only, the finale having Earth sign a peace treaty with Mars and the Martian Queen Tyr'ahnee preparing to get married to Commander X-2 after learning that he loved her. When the show was renewed for a third season because of good ratings, the premiere had Tyr'ahnee leave X-2 because she decided she still had feelings for Duck Dodgers and she also revoked Mars' truce with Earth when Dodgers continued refusing to reciprocate her feelings towards him.
