* Every member of the replacement team in ''Film/TheReplacements'' has played football in the past (although, in one case, it's a different kind of football), and it ended up not working out for him. The football strike is this trope for them. However, they all know it's nothing more than a chance to play (and, hopefully, win) several pro games before the real multi-million-dollar players return. Indeed, at the end, there is nothing waiting for them (no promotional offers, no parades) but a return to their former lives (in one case, prison) with the knowledge that they succeeded in this trope.

The same is true for the head coach, who is stated to have been one of the greatest in his day, but who was fired for butting heads with egotistical multi-million-dollar players, forcing the owner to get rid of him. He knows that the same fate awaits him after the end of the strike.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has Asgore, the King of Monsters, who had [[spoiler: declared war on humanity after said humans had killed his son. He vowed to have 7 humans killed in order to harvest their souls and use their power to break the barrier imposed on his people so that they can escape, destroy humanity, and live in peace. After calming down, Asgore realizes that he doesn't have the heart to go through with his plans, but feels like he has no choice but to do so or his people would lose all hope. Asgore's actions causes his wife, Toriel, to abandon him due to her being disgusted at the idea and the fact that Asgore couldn't kill the humans himself since he had others do it for him. In the TrueEnding, the barrier is destroyed without needing to kill anymore humans beyond the initial 6 that were already killed and the monsters are finally freed from the underground. All the monsters make peace with the humans and both races live together in harmony. Asgore takes the opportunity to atone for what he had done and the peace between humans and monsters gives him the second chance he sorely needed.]]
