* Whenever the [[FinalFantasyVII Shinra mansion]] is mentioned, half the time it will (or already has) go up in flames. This trope is inevitable when half the cast have [[DarkAndTroubledPast negative experiences]] with one building.

* The ending of ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' has Fazbear's Fright - a horror attraction established thirty years after Freddy Fazbear's Pizza closed and containing various relics from the pizzaria's history - suffer a fire a mere few days before it officially opens to the public. What little artifacts survived the blaze [[spoiler:(possibly including the ancient animatronic possessed by the dead SerialKiller who gave the original pizzaria its grisly history)]] end up being sold at a public auction. With ''3'' being the ([[Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4 chronologically]]) final game in the series, it would appear the Fazbear legacy is put to rest forever as a result.

* Unusually for this trope, ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' employs it smack in the middle of ''Changes''. [[spoiler: Harry's much-loved apartment is razed, with much of his possessions inside. To add insult to injury, he damages his spine while trying to help his elderly landlady, and is left paralyzed from the waist down. This leads to him accepting Mab's offer to become the Winter Knight, which in turn causes him to arrange his own murder at the end of the novel.]] The symbolism remains, though. It tells the reader that [[WhamEpisode this book pulls no punches]], and will live up to its name-NothingIsTheSameAnymore.
