* In ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'', the cast decide to help Pantyhose Taro get his name changed if he'll take Happosai (who named him) back with him to China, permanently. When he does, and takes Happosai away, everyone is ecstatic over the departure of the old pervert. But nevermind that Happosai refused to change Pantyhose Taro's name anyway, halfway across the Sea of Japan, but why exactly did Ranma et al think that he wouldn't come back on his own? (And he did.)
* At the end of nearly every episode of {{SherlockHound}} Professor Moriarty, George/Todd, and Smiley's hideout, vehicle, or flying machine would explode sending them flying off into the distance.

* Done hilariously in one issue of ''ComicBook/{{Cable And Deadpool}}''. The latter is fighting [[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} Sabertooth]], and it's more or less a standstill, until Cable intervenes with his telekinetic powers, and launches Sabertooth off the artificial island. Deadpool asks where Cable sent him, and Cable replies with, "Um...that way." Cut to Sabertooth splashing down miles away in the middle of the ocean.

* Once the heroes inevitably stop Lyric in ''VideoGame/SonicBoom Rise of Lyric'', Knuckles promptly tosses away his robotics control device and shuts down Lyric's army. [[spoiler: [[TheStinger Eggman finds it after the credits,]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero and reactivates the damaged Metal Sonic while the cartoon implies he controls or powers his robots with it afterwards.]]]]

* Virtually every video game in existence requires your enemy to "respawn" (come back to life) so that you can continue to collect points, treasure or other game objects, otherwise most of the time you'd be wandering around an empty landscape with nothing to do. [[VictoryIsBoring Boring.]]
* At the end of {{Naruto}} Uzumaki Chronicles 2, Naruto and crew decide that the best solution for getting rid of the Spirit Orbs is to chuck them into the ocean.
* VideoGame/BattalionWars: So you defeated the villain's army and found a MacGuffin that uses the PowerOfTheSun to world shattering effect? Drop it off a cliff. Problem Solve- oh wait, the other villains are now looking for it. Oops.

* As spoofed in its GagDub, ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has Honda/Tristan attempting to rid Bakura of his evil side by hurling his possessed Millennium Ring down into a nearby forest. Of course, the Millennium Ring is a ClingyMacGuffin, and it's back on Bakura's neck at the end of ''the very same episode''. Since in [[Manga/YuGiOh the manga]] this nonsense didn't happen (Bakura doesn't try to take Mokuba's soulless body as his own and Honda doesn't go Bruce Lee on him and throw away the ring, they simply rescue the kid and take him to a safer place), fans are left asking themselves what the writers were smoking while conceiving this pointless filler scene.
