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.

[[folder:Advertising]]
* Sprite's "Obey Your Thirst" campaign in TheNineties was a series of commercials based around subverting and mocking the tropes of advertising by invoking this trope.
** One of the most famous was the "Grant Hill Drinks Sprite" series of ads, which parodied CerealInducedSuperpowers. In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AdRVjOETjY one of them]], a kid spots NBA player Grant Hill drinking Sprite, and thinks Sprite will make him a basketball player... which he quickly disproves by drinking Sprite and then attempting a slam dunk, failing, and falling on his ass.
--->'''Announcer:''' If you want to make it to the NBA... practice. If you want a refreshing drink, obey your thirst. Sprite.
** [[http://www.metacafe.com/watch/47179/sprite_and_its_meaning/ Another one]] has a group of kids talking about Hill's athletic prowess and offering various hypotheses for it (his [[MadeInCountryX Brazilian rubber]] sneakers, his lightweight shorts, his [[BaldOfAwesome shaved head]]) before one mentions that he drinks Sprite... only to say that he's merely not thirsty anymore after drinking it.
** Similarly, a bunch of young guys drive around in a convertible in slow motion, bouncing the car on its wheels to look cool. The car stops, one guy leaps out out of the car and goes to dramatically chug back his Sprite. When he turns the cap, the bottle ''explodes and covers him in soft-drink'' -- because all that bouncing shook it up. He does not look cool while shrieking and dripping wet.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-aFQtiPzFk An even harsher one]] had a visibly preteen boy thinking that drinking Sprite would transform him into a [[ProfessionalWrestling professional wrestler]]. He then [[BullyingADragon challenged]] Wrestling/{{WCW}}'s Wrestling/{{Sting}} to a match -- and was promptly [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown battered from pillar to post]] as his parents just stood by and laughed.
** Sprite's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esKm3lDtB40 "Sun Fizz" ad,]] in which a stereotypical juice ad plays out with mother and children getting excited over Sun Fizz. A cartoon Sun Fizz mascot jumps out of the carton and rattles off his part of the spiel... prompting the entire family to run screaming in terror from the cartoon sun that should not be. Who gives chase.
** A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfOgYIOho44 fake advertisement]] for a soft drink called Jooky ("the party in a can!") advertised it with images of people surfing, playing volleyball, and having fun on the beach, all to a faux-Caribbean jingle... before cutting back to show a pair of slackers watching the ad and popping open their cans of Jooky, all while a snowstorm rages outside. One of them accidentally breaks the tab off the can and is unable to open it. Alternately, "mine's busted" could be taken to mean "I'm still here freezing my rear end off in the frozen north".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpReQprVjag A depressing NSPCC ad]] had a man [[AmusingInjuries beating a cartoon kid]] for a while before throwing the kid down the stairs as we pan to see a genuinely unconscious kid on the floor and the caption "Real children don't bounce back".
* A Dr. Pepper TV ad had two men moving a pinball machine down the stairs. A snapping noise is heard, and one of the guys is shown in pain. A doctor with a can of Dr. Pepper comes near the guy, complete with a Dubstep song. The guy seems happy until he resumes being hurt and is then shown about to let go of the machine, which would make the machine crash into the wall.
* Reitman's had an ad campaign in the late 00's that showed just how impractical the clothing worn on the runway by fashion models is for everyday situations. The fashion models ranged from oblivious to the mayhem they were causing to being the ButtMonkey of whatever scene was going on to [[BreakTheHaughty being stuck up before being forced to endure humiliation for her impractical clothing choice]]. In all three cases, HilarityEnsues.
* A British NHS advert that ran in the late 2000s featured a crowd of people watching in awe as a Batman-esque superhero scaled a building scaffold dramatically and acrobatically to retrieve a lost balloon. When the hero reached the top, he slipped off of the pole on which is was precariously balanced and fell the entire height of the building. The audience is then treated to an unpleasant shot of the actually ordinary man, twitching blankly on the concrete floor as the narrator speaks the words "Too much alcohol makes you feel invincible when you're most vulnerable". It was an effective advert.
* A recent advertisement by British phone and internet provider BT features Creator/RyanReynolds demonstrating the range of a BT router's wifi by hanging off a helicopter's skids as it flies up while holding a tablet. As soon as the helicopter takes off, Reynolds begins screaming in terror and begging the pilot to land, who just obliviously asks him if he has wifi.
* A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6apo1xlkXk commercial]] for Big M (an Australian brand of flavoured milk) has a man walking along with a carton in his hand when he sees a piano roll out of a moving van and down the street, heading directly towards an old woman struggling to walk her dog. The man puts down his chocolate Big M and [[LeParkour runs after it]], jumping onto a passing garbage truck and then a motorbike to get between the woman and the piano. But when he turns and puts his arms out to stop the piano - it doesn't stop, taking him, the woman and, after a moment, the dog (pulled by its lead) with it. Cue the slogan: "Think Big! But not too big."
* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-nGAajmvSc this Conforama advertisement]], a dad in one building watches a man in another fancily shake up a wine for his love. He tries the same for his family...[[EpicFail with a bottle of soda.]]
* Played for laughs in this [[https://vimeo.com/28837044 Geico commercial]] which showed real-life consequences of the Jack Be Nimble nursery rhyme. Jack knocks over the candlestick, setting his pants and his apartment on fire.
* There was a series of PSA comic strips displayed in the Warsaw subway, warning about the potentially life-ruining consequences of stupid bravado. One of the ads depicted a stereotypical movie {{ninja}} who runs across a rooftop, leaps down into a hay cart... and the last panel shows him in a wheelchair.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UxmNEXOSSg This commercial]] for Kia shows that trying to be an "eco warrior" isn't as easy as it seems. (Still, Melissa ''does'' [[TheDeterminator keep getting up...]])

* ''Magazine/{{MAD}}''

to:

* ''Magazine/{{MAD}}''''Magazine/{{MAD}}'':



[[folder:Music]]
* This trope is bread and water for song parodies.
* Swedish songwriter Lars Winnerbäck tells us what really happened to some of Creator/AstridLindgren's characters in his "Balladen om Konsekvenser" (The Ballad of Consequences). Literature/PippiLongstocking is in jail for assaulting a police officer, illegally possessing a wild animal and receiving stolen property. Rasmus is a homeless alcoholic, [[Literature/RonjaTheRobbersDaughter Ronja]] is screaming her head off in a mental hospital, and [[BigBad Kato]] from ''Mio My Mio'' [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking runs a mindless commercial TV channel]].
* The song "Scalp" by Atmosphere features the narrator describing his night. He goes to the bar and meets his friend Sonny, who offers to pay him for retrieving a package from a tattoo parlor. One expects the protagonist to follow through with his task, possibly finding something surprising in the package along the way, but instead he is killed in a car crash immediately after leaving the bar. Which is what happens when you actually drink $50 worth of alcohol and then drive at night.
* What Music/WeirdAlYankovic does with this trope in ''Trapped in the Drive Thru'' [[http://blip.tv/doogtoons/weird-al-yankovic-trapped-in-the-drive-thru-3579861 needs to be seen to be fully appreciated]].
* WillSmith had a hit song in the 80s with "I Think I Can Beat Mike Tyson." ("[[OneHitKill One punch, that's all it took]] (oooh), [[CurbStompBattle He hit me in my ribs and my insides shook.]]")
** "Rocky" by the Music/TheLonelyIsland uses a suspiciously similar premise, but cranks it up in the most ridiculous way possible.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hMU0qWc-ks "It's Just A Movie, Stupid"]] by {{Music/Psychostick}}.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyQlgvFCCMo "Action Movie Hero Boy"]] by Music/LemonDemon is a double subversion: the music video doesn't show the idiot kid playing with explosives blowing to bits because that would be a FamilyUnfriendlyDeath and only leaves him with cartoony AmusingInjuries. However the idiot kid hasn't learned his lesson by the end and [[KillEmAll blows everyone up]] in a GoryDiscretionShot.
* In "Women Lose Weight" by Morcheeba, guest rapper Slick Rick tells us he's going to kill his wife because she gained weight after he married her (as well as what a shame it is in general that women do this), then actually goes through with it by running her off the road. Reality ensues in the last verse when he's charged with her murder and realises that while it is important for a woman to remain desirable to her husband, her failure to do so does NOT justify murder.
* Music/{{Skrillex}}'s ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJVmu6yttiw Bangarang]]'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJVmu6yttiw music video]] ([[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xowdrn_skrillex-bangarang-official-music-video_music Alternate link for German users]]) features three cunning little boys robbing an ice-cream truck of its stock, complete with an obese, cartoonish ice-cream man. The plan goes wrong and they end up seriously injuring the man to escape. (He was going to use a stick to beat one, but there was no way they could see that.) When they grow up and become professional thieves, the one who accidentally cut off the ice-cream man's hand gives some of his loot to the guy by way of compensation.
* Occurs in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnnHprUGKF0 Big Bad John]]" by Jimmy Dean. While John is a very strong man, strong enough to hold up a timber to save his fellow miners, he can't hold it up long enough for them to come back and save him.
* Aaron Carter's "Aaron's Party" is about... well take a guess. At the end, his parents come home and he gets grounded.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzSAO8op0ow music]] video for the song Baby I'm Sorry by the {{K-Pop}} boyband MYNAME applies this rather brutally. At first, things look fairly standard, with a bunch of teenage boys beating up a group of thugs with full on ThePowerOfFriendship implications, token coward member aside. Then, two of them get involved in organized crime, and when a group member is killed on an assassination job, an attempt at a RoaringRampageOfRevenge goes horribly wrong. As it turns out, friendship, righteous anger and a coward finally finding the strength to fight aren't much good against guns and tougher, more experienced opponents. In the end, all our protagonists die horribly and painfully, one even crying for his mother as he goes.
* Many traditional murder ballads end with justice being served. Most notably in Tom Dooley (where the song's subject is hanged for his crimes) and Knoxville Girl (where the protagonist serves a life sentence for murder).
* The ''{{Franchise/Pokemon}}'' Christmas song "Under the Mistletoe" shows how Ash, who is a ten-year-old boy, would probably respond to an overt romantic advance from Misty -- by running away screaming.
* [[http://youtu.be/cmb8_KsrNSQ Fefe Dobson's]] "Stuttering" music video is about her preparing to confront her cheating boyfriend in a seedy motel after the other woman has stepped out. She even puts on the other woman's jacket while she waits for him to come out of the shower. [[spoiler:Turns out it's not her boyfriend, and Fefe immediately leaves, embarassed. The video goes to some weird places from there, but it's an interesting twist on [[YourCheatingHeart the usual cliche]].]]
* The swedish SCA-performed song "Hjältekvädet" ("The hero song") is about the noble "King Kaspian" riding into battle with his men, only to get killed by a stray arrow, because those things happen on the battlefield. Then the song writer realizes he's being paid for this and quickly retcons in a goose flying past and taking the arrow instead. Then King Kaspian gets crushed by a panicking horse (retconned; it fell in love with a passing elk), stabbed from behind by a common soldier (retconned; he was carrying a sack of potatoes for no explainable reason and it blocked the attack), and cut down by the enemy commander (retconned; he just wins). In the end, the writer complains about having to sacrifice his artistic integrity for money, and says that real kings bleed just as well as ordinary people.
* A ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' version of "Jingle Bells" has Rainbow Dash bragging about "[[DrivesLikeCrazy mach speed sleigh rides]]." When she tries to find someone to ride with her, the entire town of Ponyville hides out of fear of what a crash at that speed would do to them. Rarity, Pinkie Pie and Applejack end up taking one with her, but quite unwillingly.
* Music/NinjaSexParty's "Cool Patrol" has the titular patrol advise a kid who's getting picked on by bullies to do an inspirational dance. When the kid tries the dance on the bullies, they still beat him up.
[[/folder]]



[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Plenty of rather egregious injuries occur to pro wrestlers, both acute and long-term. It's a reminder of the reality when you are working 300-plus days a year being dropped on your back and head and the amount of conditioning needed to sustain that kind of schedule. Unfortunately, the next reality that ensues tends to be drug addiction, early death, and severe domestic issues.
* Any time a member of the audience jumps the barricade and tries to enter the ring, unless it is a plant in the audience that was scripted to do so, they will be apprehended by security and blacklisted from attending future events. Not to mention, they might get a firsthand lesson as to why attacking someone who looks like a bodybuilder, that knows how to throw their weight around (literally), and is now really pissed off at you, is a very stupid idea.
* In Wrestling/RingOfHonor, Wrestling/JimmyJacobs spent a long time trying to get his manager, Lacey, to reciprocate his love. His efforts finally paid off, but when Lacey told him she loved him, in his own words, "I felt nothing". Realising that in reality, love doesn't instantly fix you or make you a better person, Jimmy hit his DespairEventHorizon, and started the Age of the Fall shortly afterwards.
* WWE went about {{deconstructi|on}}ng all their "supernatural" gimmicks in 2014. Wrestling/TheUndertaker's aura of being a mythical god of death took a huge hit when he lost to Wrestling/BrockLesnar at WrestleMania XXX, especially since Lesnar and Wrestling/PaulHeyman have made WorkedShoot references to Undertaker's mortality amidst their constant boasting about it for CheapHeat.
* Undertaker's [[UnrelatedBrothers brother]] Wrestling/{{Kane}}, who, while billed as the Devil's Favorite Demon, seems to go back and forth between being a demon of hate and a corporate stooge at the whims of Wrestling/TheAuthority, both of whom can still be beaten into irrelevancy by any top-level {{face}} act. He's lost all presence of actually being a [[WrestlingMonster monster threat]] even compared to his debut as Kane in 1997, and thus comes across more like a lumbering big man with a mask-reliant SplitPersonality than anything else.
* Wrestling/TheAscension from {{Wrestling/WWE NXT}}, initially a Wrestling/MinistryOfDarkness {{expy}} {{tag team}}, began their transition into a Wrestling/LegionOfDoom expy instead by openly denying any supernatural ties of their own in a WWE.com article interview shortly after winning the NXT tag team titles. They also abandoned the OminousLatinChanting theme for a heavy rock piece by CFO$, and the lighting for their entrance doesn't imitate Undertaker's quite as much as it used to. It hasn't made them any less fearsome or dominant, however, and they've actually turned ''up'' the occult symbolism in their attire since then. The result is they're clearly acknowledged as human, but one would be forgiven for thinking they draw motivation from some kind of twisted [[TheIlluminati Illuminati]] ritual—especially after seeing their Titantron entrance video on the main roster.
* When Wrestling/CMPunk went of on his infamous "Pipe Bomb" WorkedShoot, his microphone was cut off after he started mocking the entire company on camera. It was announced immediately after that he had been suspended indefinitely, which is what would happen if any other professional athlete did something so brazen.
* During a period of being savvy, Wrestling/SamoaJoe would just move out of the way when he saw his opponents going up to the top rope for high-risk moves. Not much you can do about it when your opponent is all the way across the ring.
* At one point during the Authority angle, [[Wrestling/TheBigShow Big Show]] gets fired by Triple H and Stephanie [=McMahon=] for not playing ball. He ends up suing them for unfair dismissal, and Trips and Steph are forced by the board of directors to bring him back in order to prevent a lawsuit.
* On one occasion, Stephanie was arrested for battery after physically assaulting [[Wrestling/BellaTwins Brie Bella]], who had quit in protest and was attending as a member of the audience.
[[/folder]]




[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Despite passionate pleas, Masayuki in ''VisualNovel/AProfile'' is ultimately completely unable to make Miou's parents reconcile. As he says to Miou, it's not like a kid like him can do much to convince adults of anything serious like that. On the other hand, it's not completely without results in that it made her father approve of him, whereas until then he was judging Masayuki as the street punk he used to be.
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' can be argued to be this. While the conflict between mystery and fantasy is an important aspect of the series, the real conflict is between mystery/fantasy and ''reality''. This can be easily be seen in Ep 2 with the [[LockedRoomMystery locked chapel]] where the real trick is[[spoiler: the simplest one, namely that Rosa lied (in accordance to Yasu's script) and it was never locked at all]]. It can also be seen in Episode 7 when [[spoiler: the adults find the gold and instead of showing a series of mystery/fantasy scenes, we are instead shown what would happen in this type of family in such a situation: a lot of shootings and deaths]].
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** Characters who commit crimes not related to the murder being investigated (altering crime scenes, forging evidence, wiretapping, interfering with investigations, attacking police officers, etc) will be shown in the detention center later, showing that they do serve time for what they did. On the other hand, it seems darned near impossible to actually get anyone in trouble for perjury. ''Dual Destinies'' plays with this, the judge using threats of conviction for perjury to motivate witnesses to start telling the truth.
** Also, the fact that Phoenix in the second game [[spoiler:defends a murderer is reminiscent of many real attorneys who have to defend murderers who are actually guilty (of course, unlike most attorneys, Phoenix has to be blackmailed into it).]]
** What happens when you spend years exposing the hypocrisy and corruption of the justice system? According to ''Dual Destinies'', the result is that people don't trust law enforcement and prosecutors, which, because no one seems to care about guilt or innocence anymore, results in ''blatant and flagrant'' abuse of the law by both prosecutors and defense attorneys. NiceJobBreakingItHero!
*** Speaking of the above, it goes on for about seven years. When the Chief Prosecutor decides to have a cleanup, he ends up having to fire around half of the prosecutors in the office, leaving them a bit short-handed in ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]''.
** Since this series relies quite a bit on eyewitness testimony, laws regarding testimonies get invoked from time to time. A few witnesses get threatened with perjury for lying too often, and it hurts their credibility in the Judge's eyes. Also, the Judge once dismissed evidence because of hearsay; in his words, "something that you heard from someone else isn't evidence."
*** Related to this, Phoenix himself used hearsay later on in the case, only for the Judge to attempt to throw it out. The problem? Earlier on, the prosecutor forced the Judge to accept the previous hearsay testimony, which Nick threw in both of their faces! [[{{Touche}} The Judge allows him to continue.]]
** In the second game, Edgeworth cuts off Wendy Oldbag's rambling with "I object to the witness's talkativeness." This is actually a legitimate objection, which the Judge sustains.
** Interpol agent Shi Long Lang, Edgeworth's rival in ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations]]'' openly despises prosecutors after one of them tampered with evidence submitted by his father, destroying the Lang clan's reputation in the process. Working with Edgeworth throughout the investgations doesn't change his beliefs about prosecutors by the end of it, though he does at least acknowledge Edgeworth as a WorthyOpponent.
** Near the end of the above game, it's discovered that Lang [[spoiler: has been unknowingly harbouring a major criminal within his team of subordinates. Who he later takes a bullet for and insists on arresting himself]]. These actions are seen as him [[spoiler: aiding and abetting a known criminal]], and by the time of the next game, Lang is revealed to have lost control of his old team of investigators as a result.
* ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo''
** It takes a lot the standard character archetypes in eroge/harem games and shows how ''living'' as an archetype is not all fun and games, by exploring what made them that way. FragileFlower Hanako seems like she needs protection and a shoulder to cry on, but in reality [[spoiler: she resents her friends for treating her like she can't handle herself.]], {{Cloudcuckoolander}} Rin [[spoiler:is distressed by how she can't express her feelings to others]], ProperLady Lilly shoulders all the responsibilities of herself and others [[spoiler:because she's done so since she was a child]], PluckyGirl Emi throws herself into her racing with aplomb [[spoiler:to try and connect with [[DaddysGirl her dead father]]]], and hyper-intense ClassRepresentative Shizune [[spoiler:is just [[WellDoneSonGuy trying to please]] [[AbusiveParents her father]]]]. It also shows that treating the girls like character archetypes ends badly for all involved, but treating them as actual ''people'' instead can help them somewhat.
** One ending of Lily's route. She's on her way to the airport and Hisao wants to [[RaceForYourLove race for his love]], taking a cab and running through the large airport, looking for her. When he sees her just ahead, Hisao wants to call out for her, but his running has overstrained his heart and his arhythmia causes him to pretty much have a heart attack then and there, fainting. [[spoiler: He survives, is being treated in a hospital and Lily is by his side, having noticed him and decided to not go to Scotland.]]
* ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'' shows that playing TheCasanova and trying to balance the affection of multiple girls is stressful for the girls in question and dangerous for you. It can even end in [[spoiler:one of them stabbing you.]]
* In ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'', if you pursue Shuu's route, Hiyoko becomes quite the LoveMartyr for him, getting hit with sign after sign that Shuu is really ''really'' dangerous but refusing to acknowledge them. [[spoiler: And if you make it all the way to the end of his route, you are rewarded with Shuu dismembering you and fleeing the school with your severed head.]]
* Archer of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' spent most of his adult life fighting in one war or another in order to [[spoiler:save as many lives as possible]], a motivation he never revealed. As it turns out nobody trusts a stranger who apparently seeks wars without any stated motivation or reward. Eventually he's framed for war crimes and, due to his involvement in so many wars, has nobody to defend him.
* ''VisualNovel/HarvestDecember'' has a few instances:
** It's a recurring theme for the main cast as they live in a town with very harsh winters and heavy snowfall. They remind themselves quite often of the dangers of potentially freezing to death if they stay outdoors too long.
** Early on, Yuki Towada, who would like to remind the hero that MyBiologicalClockIsTicking takes on a job babysitting a neighbor's infant daughter. After one week of sleepless nights and other inconveniences, she slows down a bit.
** The hero, Masaki Konno, has two women fighting over him and the stress is beginning to wear him down. Sounds like a comedic example, right? Wrong. After his UnwantedHarem doubles in size, including the return of an ex-girlfriend who wants to resume the relationship, all of the stress gives him a nasty case of gastritis.
** During the finale, after Masaki [[spoiler:has had his right arm nearly ripped off by a wolf, the pain sinks in after the adrenaline of the fight wears off and it nearly causes him to pass out.]]
* ''VisualNovel/ZeroEscape'' frequently features a drug called Soropil, an InstantSedation which has only one major side effect if the recipient overdoses - EasyAmnesia. Naturally, creating a very fast-working sedative that is completely safe made its inventors ''very'' rich.
