* One of the earliest example: ''Literature/TheOdyssey'' ends with Odysseus happily reunited with his wife Penelope and their son Telemachus after a long and perilous journey. In ''The Telegony'',the lost sequel and last installment of the ''Literature/TheTrojanCycle'', Odysseus is forced to leave for the killing of Penelope's suitors, [[YourCheatingHeart forgets about Penelope and marries the Queen of Thesprotia Callidice]]. After the later dies during a battle, Odysseus returns to Ithaca only to be killed by Telegonus the son he had with Circe ([[RememberTheNewGuy absent in the Odyssey]]) contradicting Tiresias' prophecy that he would die a gentle deat in sleek old age.

** ''Film/{{Logan}}'' itself overrides the ending Wolverine fought for in ''Days of Future Past'', as it adapts elements of ''ComicBook/OldManLogan'', including mutants dying out, Logan as a tired old man, ans [[spoiler:the X-Men being killing by an unknowing member of their own ranks (in the film's case, Professor Xavier during a seizure)]].

* ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime'' ends with the Prince [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong successfully undoing the events of the game]] by using the hourglass to rewind time. ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaWarriorWithin'' takes place seven years after and we learn that doing so he disturbed the flow of time and has been hunted by a creature called the Dahaka. Also the Prince [[TookALevelInJerkass has become a much more self-centered and violent person]]. The {{interquel}}s ''Battles of Prince of Persia'' and ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheForgottenSands'' provide some context of how all of this happen.

** ''LSL 6'' has it even worse, since the plot of ''LSL 5'' was about Larry and Passionate Patti (who the series made out to be his OneTrueLove) being separated and losing their memories as a result of ''Leisure Suit Larry 4'' being deleted. They're reunited at the end of the game, but despite the fact that the game repeatedly portrayed Patti as feeling lonely and like a piece of her soul was missing, Patti suddenly doesn't seem interested in Larry anymore and by the next game she's completely gone without any explanation.

* Creator/{{Christopher Priest}}'s ''Comicbook/BlackPanther'' run ended with Kasper Cole becoming the new Comicbook/WhiteTiger and choosing to stay with Gwen so they could raise their baby together. When Kasper appeared in ''World of Wakanda'' years later, it was revealed that Gwen had dumped him and taken the baby with her. Worse still, work commitments and financial difficulties had basically killed his career as White Tiger before it ever really took off.

* When ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'' ends, the EvilEmpire has been defeated, Crimea is entering a new golden age and reestablishing ties with the laguz, and the world is by and large peaceful -- even the massive Begnion theocracy seems well at ease with the world. By the time of ''Radiant Dawn'', Crimea is being undermined by greedy nobles (including one who starts an open revolution), Daein (the aforementioned EvilEmpire) is completely oppressed by the occupational Begnion forces, and Begnion itself is in the midst of a power struggle between its senate and its empress -- and to top it all off, the laguz wind up going to war with Begnion partway through the game. The fact just about the entire world is now at war with ''someone'' becomes a plot point. Granted, the ending of ''Path of Radiance'' blatantly foreshadowed that things were about to get worse. Thankfully, ''Radiant Dawn'''s happy ending [[spoiler: sticks for 1200 years]].

* In the ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series:
** At the end of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemShadowDragonAndTheBladeOfLight'', Gharnef and Medeus have been wasted and peace has returned to the continent of Archanea. In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem Mystery of the Emblem]]'', [[spoiler:Hardin]] pulls a FaceHeelTurn and begins menacing the continent, and Marth has to go through the same thing all over again.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'' ends with Eliwood and Hector victorious over Nergal and his mad plan to summon dragons in ruins. However, anyone who has played the previous game, ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade The Binding Blade]]'', knows that Zephiel has become a ticking time bomb who will eventually become the greatest threat Elibe has seen since the Scouring.

* ''Film/ChildsPlay''. The first three movies play the trope straight, as both the first and second movies end with protagonist Andy successfully killing Chucky and moving on, only for the Killer Doll to come back from the dead by the next opus, where it's always revealed Andy's life only got worse in the mid-time. Andy is then PutOnABus for the next two movies, but then brought back in the sixth one, where the trope gets spectacularly subverted: [[spoiler:Andy's situation [[EarnYourHappyEnding finally got better (he reunited with his mother and lives a normal life)]], and when Chucky does find him again, [[GenreSavvy he expects his arrival]] [[CrazyPrepared and welcomes him with a shotgun]].]]
