* Reversed around in ''Disney/{{Bambi}} midquel. In an argument with his father over his upbringing (namely being taken in by a surrogate mother, leading Bambi to think his father no longer wanted him) he angrily snaps that he wishes "Mother was here instead of you". Despite his regret afterwards however, it is ''Bambi'' that suffers the DisneyDeath instead of the Great Prince.

The singer, feeling guilty, takes her wish back, and her sister recovers... only for their mother to die instead, leaving the singer [[PromotionToParent Promoted To Parent]].

* Literary example: Amaranta Buendía goes through this ''twice'' in ''Literature/OneHundredYearsOfSolitude''. The first time, she was a teenager [[TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry caught in a vicious rivalry with her stepsister Rebeca]]. She prays for something horrible to happen and keep her from killing the other girl; soon after, their sister-in-law Remedios has a [[DeathByChildbirth fatal miscarriage]]. The second time, Amaranta was an adult, and her DoggedNiceGuy Gerineldo Márquez was in jail. She made a flippant remark about his possibly being in line for execution when Amaranta's mother tells her to marry the guy. Some days later, Colonel Márquez ''is'' marked for death ''via'' firing squad, and only Amaranta's older brother (Colonel Aureliano)'s threats save him from execution.

--> Gradually she discovered that there was a part of her that had wished [[spoiler: Drumlin]] dead - even before they became competitors for the American seat on the Machine. She hated him for having diminished her before the other students in class, for opposing Argus, for what he had said to her the moment after the Hitler film had been reconstructed. She had wanted him dead. And now he ''was'' dead. By a certain reasoning - she recognized it immediately as convoluted and spurious - she believed herself responsible.

* An episode of ''EdEddAndEddy'' focuses on the other Cul-de-sac kids as they discover that the Ed's are mysteriously absent from the neighborhood. At first they enjoy their freedom from being constantly hassled by the Ed's scams, but as the hours creep by, they begin to worry as they find that the Ed's are ''nowhere'' to be found. Jimmy confesses that he's wished for this to happen almost every birthday, and feels guilty that it seems like it came true. The other kids, with the exception of Kevin, all feel the same way (in reality, the Ed's have been wandering around all day looking for the mascot costume mask that Ed lost).
