** I've got a better one. In the last duel of the "Waking the Dragons" arc, Yugi wins with no life points. He plays a card that [[HeroicSecondWind lets him summon a monster to act as his life points.]]

** In the final Duel of the third season of GX, Yubel uses a card that forces Jaden to add one of 5 cards to Yubel's hand every time he uses 2 Spells. It eventually comes down to two cards: Grinder Golem, which would cause Jaden to lose due to [[AttackReflector Yubel's own effect]], and Super Polymerization, which is a MacGuffin that can [[ApocalypseHow destroy multiple dimensions at once]]. Jaden goes for Super Polymerization, and Yubel is about to pull off her master plan with it until Jaden alters the card's targets to their ''souls'', forcibly ending the Duel.



** [[Main/StalkerWithACrush Yubel]] activated a Card that let her remove 5 of her Cards and Judai has to choose one to get into her Hand, whenever he used 2 Spellcards. At the End he had to choose between Super Polymerization (a Card Yubel wants to use in order to fuse the 12 Dimentions together) and Grinder Golem (which would have cause Judai to use, thanks to Yubels Main Monsters [[AttackReflector Effect]]) Judai chooses the former, but counters by fusing him and Yubel instead

* This happens ''three times'' in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': [[spoiler: the Fire Nation ultimately wins the war at the end of the second season, forcing Aang and his friends into hiding on enemy territory. Later in season 3, the few remaining pockets of resistance unite for a surprise counter-attack on the Fire Nation capital; it fails, costing the Avatar most of his remaining allies. At the end, with a super-charged Fire Lord Ozai preparing the killing blow against Aang, the Fire Nation's victory seemed irreversible until Aang regains access to the Avatar State and defeats Ozai.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Toy Story 3}}'': [[spoiler: Lotso leaves the gang to their immiment death in the incinerator by pretending to help them so he can escape, only for them to be saved by the aliens using a loader they found. Had the aliens not wandered away from the gang and found the loader that would eventually rescue them, Lotso would have won.]]

** By making planetfall on [[spoiler:Phaaze]] in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'', Samus winds up giving her enemy all the cards as she [[spoiler:becomes so heavily Phazon-corrupt that she can't even leave the planet (her ship no longer acknowledges her as "Samus Aran", the Phazon having mutated her so severely). As Samus has killed off her other Phazon-enabled bounty hunter associates over the course of the game, she's the only one left with the physical constitution to even be on the planet and being there will eventually terminally corrupt her anyway]]. All she can do is press on to the final battle and hope that she holds off terminal corruption long enough to finish things. Gameplay-wise, this is conveyed by Samus's health becoming a slowly ticking timer that can only be rewound by unloading Phazon along the way to the final fight. The more Energy Tanks you have, the longer you can go without exhausting the buildup of Phazon.
