** ''Film/ANewHope'' ends on a triumphant note with the Rebels destroying the Death Star, come ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' and we learn that the celebrations were short-lived as the Empire's counterattack was swift and drove them out from their base, starting the [[DarkestHour darkest episode]] of the original trilogy.

** ''Film/ANewHope'' ends on a triumphant note with the Rebels destroying the Death Star, come Star and receiving medals for it.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/TheLastJedi'' continues this, having [[spoiler:the First Order reigning despite their losses as the military action in ''The Force Awakens'' barely slowed them down, the remaining Resistance members being picked off, Leia's call for help from other rebels failing, Finn and Rose's subplot making things worse, and Luke Skywalker himself dying to help the last remnants of the Resistance escape]].

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Trials and Tribulations'' might have ended on a bittersweet note (what with [[spoiler:Maya's long lost mother dying and Godot going to jail for it, all because of Morgan and Dahlia's actions]]), but it ultimately wraps up the original trilogy quite nicely, with all main characters being given a proper closure... that is until ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' came, revealing that Phoenix had been disbarred shortly after the events of ''Trials and Tribulations'' (not to mention having a rather strong case of SameCharacterButDifferent). To make matters worse, the only other returning character from the original trilogy is Ema Skye, which was originally not in Phoenix's arc until the DS remake and the english localization (there's also the Judge, if you want to count THAT), while the whereabouts every other main character remained unknown until ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]'' and ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]''.

* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'''s third season ended with a pretty happy ending (including ''restoring dead people back to life''). [[spoiler: Then came season four with "Daemon Rising" and "My two Bobs" which ended on a giant cliffhanger which left [[BigBad Megabyte]] in control of the principal office.]]

** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' ended pretty unambiguously happy, with the villain defeated and everyone reuniting with laughter and smiles. It wasn't until [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep later]] [[KingdomHeartsCoded games]] came out that the cast realized that there were still people to save and they hadn't even stopped the BigBad at all; if anything, they had helped him.

* ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' ended with [[spoiler: Ryota Mitarai's plan to brainwash what's left of the world is stopped thanks to the Future Foundation and the former Remnants of Despair, and Makoto Naegi founds a new Hope's Peak Academy as the world starts to rebuild]]. ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' initially seems to have no relation to that timeline, leaving its happy ending intact while its own universe deals with the extinction of humanity by a disease-carrying meteor shower. However, it then proceeds to subvert and then [[DoubleSubverted double subvert]] it: [[spoiler:it's initially "revealed" that the extinction of humanity occurred during the time of Makoto's rebuilt Hope's Peak Academy, wiping away his and his friends' efforts for good...only for it to be established that both the universe of the earlier games and the universe of V3 are [[ShowWithinAShow in-universe fictional stories]], and that they originally ''were'' going to be separate universes before the mastermind had to quickly {{retcon}} them to be related]]. In the end, whether you believe the ending to be overriden depends entirely on your own personal interpretation of [[spoiler:whether Tsumugi's hasty modifications to the Hope's Peak canon count as canon to the media released in real life]].

* "VisualNovel/KajiriKamuiKagura is this to the ending of the Marie route of Dies Irae. Several thousand years after in the ending Marie aka Tasogare took the Throne and became the fifth Heaven, watching over reality with Ren aka Yato until she and the other Gods were killed by Hajun usurping the Throne. Hajun starts to destroy all of reality until Yato, the only one to survive due to having the series strongest defense power and Hajun almost not noticing him barely managed to stop the complete manifestation of Hajuns Law with his time stop. This continues for eight thousand years until the arrival of the Eastern Expedition, who start their journey to oppose Yato and Hajun.

* ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse''. The first run ended with a hopeful future. Then a sequel came out in which people pick up the rubble and try to rebuild the world and their lives. Later in 2012, ''[[ComicBook/XForce Uncanny X-Force]]'' had an arc in which they went to visit that same world and it was more horrifying than ever, with Apocalypse being replaced by something far worse and most of the dimension's X-Men being killed.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, no matter how happy the ending (and the endings of some of the games are already [[DownerEnding Downers]] or [[BittersweetEnding Bittersweet]] at best), future games in the series almost always override it by showing the consequences of the player's actions on the world. To note:
