** This can happen to the better endings for Anders and Justice in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening'', as they are inevitably driven from the Wardens in order to appear in the next game.

* Mixed together with SequelReboot with the season five premier of ''Series/{{Community}}'': the fourth season ended optimistically with Jeff and Pierce graduating in the Fall semester, Shirley's business getting off the ground, Annie picking a major in criminology, and Chang [[BecomingTheMask deciding to stay friends with the group as "Kevin".]] Fast-forward to the next Fall, where Jeff's newly found scruples [[BeingGoodSucks lead his career as an attorney to ruins]], Shirley's entire family left her because she lost their savings on her failed business, Annie has gotten as job as a sales rep [[YouAreWhatYouHate for the same prescription drugs that lead to her breakdown,]] none of the rest of the group are having any more success, and Chang is on work release for ''arson''. The group decides they still need to learn more, but Greendale is the only place they can go to, while Jeff takes a job as a teacher to get by while he tries to get it in some form of working order.

* ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' ends on a high (if bittersweet) note, with our heroes, including Captain Kirk, heading towards retirement after saving the Federation and the galaxy yet again. Then ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'' happens, and Kirk first gets chucked out of the ''Enterprise''-B's hull into the Nexus, ''and then'' proceeds to be the victim of DroppedABridgeOnHim when he comes out to stop the MadScientist Soran from blowing up a sun in order to get into the Nexus.

** While ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' doesn't do this as a whole to ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' (what with it being a {{midquel}} that takes place before the last three episodes of that series), it does do this to Future Trunks' story. The last time he was seen in the original series, thanks to training in the Z Warriors' timeline he'd managed to become strong enough to take down the Artificial Humans of his world (as well as Imperfect Cell three years later), as well as rebuild all the damage they caused. In ''Super'', new villain Goku Black [[spoiler:(a.k.a. Zamasu)]] decimates his world ''even more so'' than the Artificial Humans did, murders his mother right in front of his eyes, and forces Future Trunks to flee back to the main timeline. Even worse, [[spoiler:after Zamasu's defeat, he attempts to become reality itself, prompting the Omni-King to completely destroy Future Trunks' timeline (though Trunks and his family manage to escape), [[ShootTheShaggyDog rendering the struggles of its inhabitants between both apocalypses null and void]]]].
*** By extension, this also happened to the Future Trunks from Cell's timeline. After saving Goku's life and then helping them deactivate the androids, he travelled back to his time to do the same. With the world saved, he decided to make one last trip to the past to celebrate with his friends. However, [[DownerEnding Cell got to him first]].

* The ''Franchise/{{Rocky}}'' movies love their Overrides. For instance, ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' ends with the title hero [[VictoriousLoser going the distance]] against the champion Apollo Creed, which is all he really wanted; they agree there won't be a rematch, and Rocky quits the boxing biz.''Film/{{RockyII}}'' sees Balboa's endorsements and money from the fight run dry. Creed, his pride now wounded by skeptical fans, demands a rematch. Rocky, desperate to feed his family, has no choice but to take it.

* The ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11847576/1/Teen-Titans-Beware-the-Grey-Ghost Beware the Grey Ghost]] does this to the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' [[Recap/BatmanTheAnimatedSeriesE18BewareTheGreyGhost episode of the same name]]. At the conclusion of the episode, the actor who played the titular Grey Ghost found his acting career revitalized thanks to helping Batman thwart the MadBomber recreating an episode of his show. In the opening chapter, however, Robin tells the rest of the Titans that said MadBomber escaped during a mass breakout of Arkham, then planted a bomb in the actor's car, killing him.

* The final issue of WarrenEllis' run on ''[[{{Marvel 2099}} Doom 2099]]'' saw Doom about to realize his goal of creating a utopia by releasing thought-controlled {{Nanomachines}} that would give people whatever they wanted for free. The first three words in the next issue are "it didn't work".

* In Creator/OscarWilde's short story, "The Star-Child", the titular WonderChild finally passed his SecretTestOfCharacter, regains his beauty and discovers his roots as an heir to the kingdom. All would have been well if the story ended with him reigning as a good and merciful king. Instead, the very last line of the text mentions that the new king would die young, and would be replaced by a despot.
