* Reggie Fils-Amie of [[Creator/Nintendo Nintendo of America]] has describe the UsefulNotes/WiiU as this. It seriously underperformed due to its rushed release date, small library of games, and an abysmal ad campaign that failed to alert people to the fact that it was a brand new console rather than just a spruced-up Wii or an add-on. In response to this, Reggie has clarified that Nintendo will do the best they can to rectify these mistakes, with the current ads for the UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch making it very clear what the system is and who it's for, as well as having a formidable list of third-party developers backing them up and a strong lineup of games for 2017 (with holiday season, a goldmine of sorts for sales, getting particular focus).

* Creator/WaltDisney's first[[note]][[OldShame not including]] ''Disney/SongOfTheSouth''[[/note]] live-action musical, ''Film/BabesInToyland'', failed to make a splash at the box office. Consequently, Walt looked for some elements that he could improve on next time he would do a fantasy musical, such as production values, substance, and casting. By managing not to repeat the same mistakes of ''Babes in Toyland'', his next foray into this genre became one of the most beloved movies of his career-''Film/MaryPoppins''.

* This turns up in almost every OriginStory of TheHero. For instance, there would've been no Franchise/{{Superman}} without the [[ApocalypseHow destruction of Krypton and the near extinction of their race]]. And it was a little boy watching [[DeathByOriginStory his parents get killed]] in front of him that led to the rise of Franchise/{{Batman}}.
** That last one is subverted in a classic Franchise/{{Batman}} story, however. The Phantom Stranger sent Batman to an AlternateUniverse, giving him the chance to stop the murder of the parallel Thomas and Martha Wayne. At several points, Batman and Robin wonder if this means there will never be a Batman in this universe. But Batman, understandably, decides it doesn't matter, and stops the shooting regardless. In the epilogue, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming the readers are informed that the parallel Bruce was inspired by the masked man who saved his family in the alleyway, and would grow up to become a Batman fueled by hope instead of despair.]]
