* In ''Literature/TheBible'', Moses sees an overseer whipping a Jew and is overcome with rage, killing him. Rather than [[BigDamnHeroes immediately viewing him as an ally and savior,]] this makes the other Jews view him as a dangerous murderer -- the next day, when he confronts one of the Jews about fighting with some other Jew, he asks if Moses is going to kill him, too.
** Another example: the Pharaoh let the Israelites go after the 10th plague killed his son. However, once the people are gone, Pharaoh and other officials realized that they just let go all their workers and now they're economically screwed.

* In ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes,'' Calvin spends a lot of time rolling a giant snowball to throw it at someone, only for Hobbes to point out (much to Calvin's dismay) that it's too heavy to lift. Calvin's disheartened response is, "Reality continues to ruin my life".

This is related to {{Deconstruction}} and DeconstructiveParody, but this is temporary, and is mainly used for comedy. The ChunkySalsaRule runs on it. Characters who use this to their advantage almost invariably are GenreSavvy. A WrongGenreSavvy character has chances to be hit hard by an Ensuing Reality. The NoNonsenseNemmesis runs entirely on this trope. Violates NoOntologicalInertia when things do not automatically change because one thing comes to an end. See also TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs.
