* ''Tharg's Future Shocks'' from ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' typically ended with such a twist. One of the best, by Creator/AlanMoore, goes like this: A werewolf on a virtually eternal space flight to an off-world colony looking forward to feasting on everybody else on board whenever the spaceship passes a lunar body finding out the hard way that every passenger and crew member on the vessel [[FlockOfWolves is also a werewolf and was hoping to do the same thing]] (and Earth's space command post happy to know that they've finally figured out a way to get rid of all of the planet's werewolves).

If the main character is warmongering, bigoted, greedy, etc., you can be sure that something will come back to bite them by the end.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' took a twist on the ''Twilight Zone'' episode “A Kind of a Stopwatch” in "Treehouse of Horror XIV." Bart and Milhouse find a stop watch that stops time, make mischief, and break the watch. ''Unlike'' the Twilight Zone episode, they luckily find a Watch Repair book- and they take ''15 years'' to fix it.
* ''TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': Mrs. Robinson is basically a sadistic monster for most of episode "The Wicked". Gumball and Darwin try to expose her for grand theft auto, only for Robinson to drive the car straight through a crowded mall and then frame Gumball. It works... and while Darwin is ranting about how she's one big KarmaHoudini he accidentally sets off a DisasterDominoes that would have killed Robinson five times over if this wasn't a cartoon.

** Later comic series like ''ComicBook/HouseOfMystery'' did these out of nostalgia for the old EC horror lines like ''TalesFromTheCrypt'' and its sister titles, ''The Vault of Horror'', ''The Haunt of Fear'', and ''Shock Suspenstories''.

** You can get one in [[spoiler:the KillEmAll ending if you choose not to destroy the world. If you do, the Fallen Child kills ''you'', then destroys the world anyway (the former [[DeathIsCheap doesn't stick]]; the latter does). ]]

* Creator/HansChristianAndersen's ''The Shadow''. Once [[spoiler:the Shadow has the original man killed]], it dies itself--since, after all, a shadow can't survive without the one who casts it.
