* The Green Bay Packers / Seattle Seahawks game in 2012. The NFL referees were locked out at the time due to a contract dispute, and the replacement refs made 4 horrendously bad calls in the final minute of the game. The last two of these were on the same play. Blatant offensive pass interference in the endzone that was not called, followed by a Packers interception that was ruled a simultaneous catch and therefore a touchdown for Seattle, with zero time on the clock. It cost the Packers the game, and they were so pissed that they walked off the field before the (utterly meaningless) extra point was kicked. After a few minutes they came back to contest the final play for appearance's sake, presumably after some persuasion from Mike [=McCarthy=].

* In the very beginning of ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'', the young talented goalkeeper Wakabayashi, back then a JerkJock extraordinaire, was obsessed by the challenge he gave to TheHero Tsubasa to try and score a goal against him in the Shûtetsu vs Nankatsu match. When Tsubasa manages to do so, Wakabayashi is so mortified and disgusted he quits the match and leaves his team on his own. Fortunately, his personal coach and in-practice ParentalSubstitute Mikami promptly [[CorporalPunishment slaps him across the face]] and gives him a scathing GetAHoldOfYourselfMan about [[TeamSpirit abandining his team]] that makes him [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone realize how rotten his attitude is]], and [[HesBack he comes back]] to the match [[CharacterDevelopment matured]] and determined to win it [[ThePowerOfFriendship along with his teammates]].

* Shin's famous death in ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''. Struck with the death blow that would kill him in three minutes, Shin laments the fact that Yuria was gone [[spoiler:though, not really]] and staggers towards the edge of the building they were fighting on. As the effect hits him, he declares that "This looks like the end for me. But, it will not be your technique that kills me!" and throws himself off the building.

* Invoked in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' by the final boss of the KillEmAll route. This enemy knows you can SaveScum, and simply defeating you in battle is therefore not good enough to stop you -- they need to make the fight so ridiculously unfair that you stop playing entirely.

More broadly and figuratively speaking, daily life can be considered a kind of "game" people play, and its various situations a variety of mini-games. Some people, when they perceive a given situation as monstrously unfair, will do this in place of simply [[KnowWhenToFoldEm cutting their losses and refusing to play anymore]] or [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere fleeing in abject terror when they're losing]]; publicly announcing the decision to quit while denouncing the "game" itself is often considered less shameful and more socially respectable than mere forfeiture or flight.
