* In the story mode of ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'', when Celeste is defeated and sealed, death returns to the Mist-Shrouded island and all the villagers crumble to dust. Justified in that they were all supposed to have decayed for a long time.

** While "The Collector" has one instance of trope aversion, every single episode of Ladybug other than the first episode of her two-part Origin Story plays the trope more or less straight, as all the damage caused by the super villain of the week OR Ladybug and Cat Noir is undone when she tosses her Lucky Charm in the air.

* The BigBad of ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' is Yuuki Terumi, a ghost separated from his body long before the plot began. This means he doesn't have a stable existence. He solves this by deliberately acting as an in-universe HateSink - the hatred he receives from characters like Ragna and Kokonoe validates and sustains his life. A DiscussedTrope in later games is that ''everything'' in the ''BlazBlue'' universe has no ontological inertia - [[QuantumMechanicsCanDoAnything they only exist because they are being Observed]]. Most things are Observed by [[DeusEstMachina Master Unit Amaterasu]], but Terumi takes a more direct route for his sustenance by deliberately antagonising everyone. The more you hate him, the stronger he gets.

* Played with in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': When dealing with Goku Black, a villain from the future, Beerus eventually manages to find the culprit behind Black and destroy him in the present, saying that this should, in theory, destroy Black as well since the events that lead to his emergence now never happened. Unfortunately, it doesn't work: Black's Time Ring apparently shields him from changes in time, meaning he ''does'' have Ontological Inertia. Time travel in ''Dragon Ball'' also operates on multiverse theory anyway, with changes in time creating branching timelines, so, really, Beerus should have known better.

** Not to mention that after Eggman [[spoiler:blew up the half of the moon with the Eclipse Cannon,]] in got better in later events showing the moon after [[spoiler:the cannon]] was put out of commission. It's especially jarring in ''SonicAdvance'', where [[spoiler:the final boss fight takes place on the moon]].

* Averted in the episode "Marco Jr." of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil''. Destroying a painting that was causing Marco's body to transform doesn't stop the process, as the ash that the painting became still has the magic enchantment on it. Star and his parents find themselves [[ItMakesSenseInContext having to take a personality test for him]] in order to overwrite the spell instead.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' involved Jenny being turned into a rampaging monster by a tiny machine that had infected her. As soon as the machine was removed all the changes were undone in seconds right before the camera. The thing that makes this particularly [[TVTropesDrinkingGame egregious]] is the fact that Jenny is a ''robot'', but then again, so was the thing that infected her in the first place (done by the Cluster.)

* In ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', defeating the Starman Deluxe causes the Stonehenge base to noisily shut down, which frees everybody from the {{People Jar}}s in the last room and removes all the enemies.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost'' episode "The Sorceror". The title villain changes Jan and Jace into giant versions of Blip (the TeamPet monkey) using the powers of his magical wand. When Jace grabs the wand away from him and breaks it, the spell is broken too and Jan and Jace turn back to normal.
