* Discussed by [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] in his review of ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite''. Although there is a brief scene in which it's shown that [[spoiler:at least one Booker survived their time-wipe]], this still ultimately leaves baby-Elizabeth in the care of a violent, alcoholic, self-destructive Booker who may or may not be neck-deep in gambling debts to alot of bad people.

* Any PoliceProcedural in which corruption by and large within the force is blown out of the water; even with a few befitting the KnightInShiningArmor, expect Interpol or the National Guard to step in at the end to keep the city from tearing itself apart.



* ''Anime/BlueGender''. A few humans have survived GaiasVengeance, and they can all live in harmony with mother nature, free at last of technology! Then the FridgeLogic sets in - the only survivors will be physically strong people. If you're physically disabled, blind, deaf, have a terminal disease, etc. then you're hosed. Mother Nature hates you and you have no right to live.

* ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'', unlike [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory the book it was based on]], doesn't show the other bratty kids making it out of the factory. Wonka assured Charlie that they were all fine, but given Wonka has also been shown to be an UnreliableExpositor, some fans theorize that he was just sugarcoating it for Charlie's sake.

* The opening of ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'' depicts the titular creatures teaming up throughout history with various evil historical figures, including Genghis Khan and Napoleon. As one Tumblr post [[https://poison-liker.tumblr.com/post/122686710044/kushlungs666-according-to-the-official-minions pointed out,]] those two alone mean that the Minions assisted in the deaths of tens of millions of people at bare minimum. The fact that they go into hiding during World War II also [[FridgeHorror implies that]] the reason Minions didn't assist in the Holocaust was that they didn't get the opportunity.

*** Even without the above, there are ''canonically'' two alternate timelines where Link never went to Termina, and thus wouldn't be around to save it from destruction.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' the Dalish Warden can request to have the Hinterlands set aside to become the new Dalish homeland, as their boon for ending the Blight and slaying the Archdemon. Its vague what actually happened, but ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' hints that this didn't go exactly that well;

* Over the course of ''VideoGame/TheMatrixOnline'''s storyline, not only do large numbers of humans in the real world take up permanent residence in large hover barges, some choose to work for the Machines. As the storyline progressed Zion and the Machines were embroiled in a cold war where the Machines worked to suppress Zion's recruitment efforts in secret and Zion was preparing for another war. It's very likely had the game not been shutdown that future story arcs would have explored a second war between the Machines in Zion, one where Zion now has a way of causing real harm to the Matrix and the Machines who are dependant on it for survival.
* From ThisVeryWiki's GuiltBasedGaming page, just when was the last time you've seen someone with or even ''mention'' a VideoGame/{{Tamagotchi}}? You know, the virtual pets known for dying if you leave them unattended? That's right. The fad's long over, so ''just about every Tamagotchi is dead.''

** In the first game, there's whole thing with Ishimura, where one of the bigest mining spaceships ever built is heavily damaged (and it causes several subsequent Necromorph outbreaks). That's not so bad, if mankind wasn't relying on ''tearing planets apart'' to cover its resource needs. It gets worse when Isaac [[spoiler:drops an already pulled out chunk of Aegis 7 back on its surface, effectively destroying the whole planet]]. By the event of the game it wasn't inhabited, but still.

** The third game forgets about some working civilisation - after three years have passed, full scale war between the Unitologists and Earth Government has begun, and worse, the Unitologists are winning. Even the task force retrieving Isaac refers to themselves as "Earthgov's last battalion", which means that this conflict is likely coming to an end. In the first mission, the player gets to look into this war - essentially urban warfare combined with Unitology-caused Necromorph outbreaks, and this is implied to happen all over the colonies.

*** The visual guide states that four people died when Anakin crashed onto the runway, but tens of thousands more would have done so if he hadn't. Additionally, the novelization pulls no punches by outright stating that hundreds of thousands of people were dying via collateral damage for every hour that the battle dragged on.

** Of course this can be chalked up to the screenwriter not thinking the implications of said events through.Something quite common in disaster movies actually.

** One should remember the final line of the main theme. [[spoiler: "... To undo the future that is Aku."]] He does exactly that!
