** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'': after the Sole Survivor is catapulted through time via cryogenic freezing, there is little do to return to their old life. Even so, the arrival of the Brotherhood of Steel on the Prydwen and the discovery that your son is actually the elderly Father running the Institute mark significant shifts within the game's narrative.

* ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' outright '''destroyed''' the StatusQuoIsGod trope. [[spoiler: In the season 2 episode ''Mindy Turns Five'', where, you guessed it, Mindy turns five years old and is now allowed to go past Jet's yard by herself. In other words, Mindy is now allowed to go to space with the older kids, changing the show's dynamic forever]].

* The beginning of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' season 6 has the Reds and Blues scattered from their familiar Blood Gulch to a half-dozen different places. While they do regroup, things are never the same--it takes them five seasons to get back to some semblance of Blood Gulch, and in that time, two major characters die permanently, they find out [[spoiler:the war is a lie]], and [[spoiler:kill the Director]]. There's no way for them to go back to just shooting at one another now, as they jointly recognize toward the end of season 10.
* In ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', the story first shifts gears from wacky one-room-two-people-talking format into something slightly more serious with the introduction of Inquisition and season BigBad Karamazov, and then changes again in episode thirteen as [[spoiler: [[TheUnfavorite Magnus]] returns and him and the Emperor forgive each other, adding a now-ex-Daemon Primarch to the cast roster and enabling Kitten to vocalise his opinion of the Emperor more clearly]].
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': at the end of Volume 3, [[spoiler: Penny, Pyrrha, and Torchwick are dead, Ozpin is missing and possibly dead, Beacon Academy has been destroyed, the world's communication network has been disabled, Yang is missing an arm and is in a [[HeroicBSOD very bad way]], Ruby is now aware that she possesses an incredible hereditary power which blows her hopes of being a normal girl away, and Team RWBY has been separated.]] This came as a big shock after the last two volumes both ended with the status quo being restored almost instantly after the final big action scene.

And then, in TheStinger, [[spoiler:a large, menacing spaceship, believed to be Thanos's, appears on the Asgardians' front door]].
** ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' promises to be this for the [=MCU=] on a level unseen since ''Winter Soldier''. Things we already know happen based on the trailers: Wakanda's true technological might is revealed to the world (and subsequently trashed) as they are ground zero for Thanos's invasion, the Asgardians are possibly nearly wiped out following ''Ragnarok'''s stinger, the ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' come to Earth, and at least ''six'' Avengers [[note]]Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Vision, and Thor[[/note]] go up against Thanos or the Black Guard with [[CurbStompBattle low levels of success]]. Oh, and WordOfGod promises that we will be saying goodbye to at least one hero, a [[DisneyDeath rarity for the universe]].

Doing so will irreparably destroy their reputation with that faction, and most members will shoot on sight after that. The destruction or upgrading of House's Securitrons in the bunker below the Fort is also a pretty significant demarcation of loyalty to either the Legion, [=NCR=], House, or Yes Man.

* In ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', a very [[StrictlyFormula episodic]] series, Perry the Platypus has a secret to keep from the Flynn-Fletcher family, namely that he's an OWCA agent. In "[[Recap/PhineasAndFerbHappyBirthdayIsabella Happy Birthday Isabella]]", his latest battle against Dr. Doofenshmirtz was taken to the house of Candace's best friend, Stacy. With his secret exposed, Perry was able to protect his identity via a LoopholeAbuse, namely that Stacy is not a member of his family. In other words, it outright avert StatusQuoIsGod for once.

** "Ozymandias": [[WhamEpisode THE ULTIMATE EXAMPLE of this trope]] in this show. [[spoiler: Hank and Gomez brutally die in a shootout against Jack and his gang inspite of Walt's begging; Walt is forced to requiesce 68 million dollars to Jack (only Todd's mercy allowed Jack to spare Walt and his cash); Jesse was MadeASlave and shipped away to doom, not before knowing Walt was behind Jane's death as well; Walt Jr comes to know about Walt being Heisenberg; Skyler mistakenly attributes Hank's death to Walt and attacks him with a knife, with Skyler and Walt Jr finally turning against him, Junior calls the cops on him, leading to Walt being exposed as Heisenberg for good; Walt takes off with Holly as she was the only one not aware of her father's truth, only to return her back to Skyler when he realised he's not capable of a family life anymore; and Walt disappears from Alberqueque with Saul's cleaner for a new life.]] The StatusQuoIsGod issue, was literally grinded into the dust (like Ozymandias), and disappeared forever.
