* King Robert in the ''Series/GameOfThrones'' season 5 Blu-ray lore about the Dance of the Dragons describes how Rhaenyra Targaryen sacrificed her sons to (temporarily) win the Iron Throne. [[spoiler: It's also probably an omen of his wife Cersei doing the same thing in the season 6 finale.]]

** Robert's Rebellion in the backstory, especially for Robert whose main motivation was to rescue his beloved Lyanna Stark from Rhaegar Targaryen. When Lyanna died at the end of the war, Robert was left with the throne instead of the woman he loved.
** By Season 4, House Lannister holds the Iron Throne with their enemies all either broken or retreating. However, their manpower is badly depleted from hard fighting, the Crown is deep in debt to the Iron Bank, and their gold mines have dried up.
** Daenerys overthrows the regimes in Astapor, Yunkai, and Meereen and frees the slaves, but as soon as she is gone the Wise Masters of Yunkai return to slaving and her regime in Astapor is overthrown by a freeman butcher named Cleon.

** ''Joker vs Sweet Tooth''. Joker triumphs by killing Needles Kane (the driver of Sweet Tooth) with Joker Venom, but the beating he took during the battle leaves him in no condition to resist the police who show up, presumably to ship him back to Arkham.

** A villainous example with the Fall of Cadia in the new 13th Black Crusade. Abbadon may have FINALLY defeated the defenders of Cadia, resulting in the planet's destruction, but the thing is he wanted to CONQUER the planet, not destroy it. The Cadian Pylons were highly valuable and the entire reason he was attacking the planet in the first place. With it gone, he "won", but lost the reason he had spent so long raging war against Cadia to begin with.

* ''ComicBook/TheLongHalloween'' ends on this. Batman, Jim Gordon, and Harvey Dent form an alliance to take down Carmine Falcone just as Batman's familiar RoguesGallery start to appear like SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, Scarecrow, ComicBook/PoisonIvy, and The Riddler. Falcone's empire is brought down--but the series ends with the RoguesGallery in control and Harvey Dent has been transformed into Comicbook/TwoFace, with one of his first acts as Two-Face being killing Falcone himself, and both Batman and Gordon wondering "WasItReallyWorthIt"

Sure, the titular monster was killed...but at the cost of the [[HeroicSacrifice life of a human being who chose to die alongside the monster rather than expose the secret of the weapon chosen to kill them]] and [[spoiler:It's HEAVILY implied that Godzilla isn't the only one of his species..]].

Unfortunately, while Zemo ends up going to prison, he still succeeded in breaking the Avengers apart.

** The War of the Five Kings was never going to be pretty, always was going to be prohibitively expensive and the harrowing of the Riverlands was worse than it strictly needed to be. But, the clean-up needing decades pales beside the fact that [[spoiler: Joffrey and Tywin were killed shortly after, Tyrion is on the run, Cersei is running the Kingdom into the ground and Kevin got killed just as he was trying to fix what he could. Winning only weakened House Lannister.]]
** Cersei learns to her cost that populist religious movents are not a toy, even if they initially get you what you want. They play back. With interest.

* '' Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' ends with a [[BolivianArmyEnding cliffhander]] implying the deaths of all but one of the surviving protagonists. While worth it for the free fate of Earth (at least temporarily), almost all of the children who survived until the end of the war were emotionally broken beyond repair from their trauma and the things they were forced to do.

* In ''Literature/TheLostFleet'', the 100 years war between TheAlliance and the [[OneNationUnderCopyright Syndicate Worlds]] is chock full of such battles. Any victory is won with huge casualties. This is in large part due to both sides forgetting complex fleet tactics and switches to an AttackAttackAttack mentality, where each ship individually charges into battle and hopes to win through sheer "fighting spirit". Battleships are considered to be posts for cowards, as they have too much armor and shields and can't get to the battle fast enough. Then Captain John "Black Jack" Geary is discovered as a HumanPopsicle and revived and uses his knowledge of fleet tactics to win without this trope... though the Alliance "won" in the sense that it isn't [[BalkaniseMe tearing itself apart]] ''quite'' as fast or as bloodily as the Syndicate Worlds.

** For humans, fighting a full-fledged war against the supernatural is kind of like fighting a war on terrorists turned UpToEleven, since monsters have all the advantages of terrorists, such as being part of the general populace, blending in with "normal people", etc, but add a whole arsenal of supernatural powers to it. But what really makes the war fit this trope is that, after all the damage humanity will do to itself in the process, A: it's not really possible to stop new generations of monsters from coming into being, and B: often, those monsters are keeping something ''even worse'' in check, and so getting rid of them leads to a power vaccuum. Case in point; the [[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheForsaken Uratha]] are scary, being a race of [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent lupine]] [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifters]] with SuperStrength, [[ItCanThink human-tier intelligence]] and a HealingFactor powerful enough to make them NighInvulnerable, especially when they go into their UnstoppableRage. But if humanity somehow wipes out werewolves, then that leads to TheLegionsOfHell who inhabit an animistic DarkWorld now being able to swarm into the mortal world in an epidemic of DemonicPossession, as keeping those evil spirits in check is a werewolf's ''job''. Not to mention the SpiderPeople and RatMan shapeshifting species who ''do'' enjoy eating human flesh will no longer have their top predator around to keep them in check.

Wasting too much time before assaulting the base, on the other hand, can see Shepard too late to rescue the Normandy's crew - maybe thirty or so innocent people and allies.

* After the breakup of Special K, The Lovely Lacey [[YouHaveFailedMe dumped]] Izzy and Deranged in favor of managing Wrestling/JimmyJacobs and BJ Whitmer. However they ended up being a less effective TagTeam as Lacey's Angels, mostly due to Lacey's attempts to "improve" Jacobs, which caused Whitmer to turn on him when Jacobs concern for Lacey lead to them losing an Wrestling/{{R|ingOfHonor}}oH Title match to [[Wrestling/AustinAries Generation]] [[Wrestling/RoderickStrong Next]]. Lacey didn't care about Jacobs but felt Whitmer had betrayed her personally and ordered Jacobs to put him out of wrestling.
