* There is a double whammy in Asimov's ''Literature/TheGodsThemselves'' book. The young Soft Ones are told that they "go on" at the end of their life cycle. Later the rebellious Dua says that "go on" is a euphemism for death and they shouldn't mince words. But still later we learn that they DON'T die, but morph into a more advanced lifeform. (They have to be ignorant of the morphing process for it to work properly; hence the vague term "go on") .

* An underground city in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has little food and and water and are unable to reliably care for more then 50 people. Every time the population reaches more than 50 people, they draw straws to see who gets "the blessing of the gods" meaning they get sent up to the surface, which is crawling with HumongousMecha that are charged to kill ''anyone'' on the surface. Tragedy ensues when a pregnant woman gives birth to triplets, bringing the population to 52. The family with triplets doesn't "win," but two {{Heartwarming Orphan}}s (Gimmy and Darry) do, specifically because they ''were'' orphans and therefore had no family to grieve for them. An older but sharp boy (Rossiu) then learns the truth and decides to go with them: to help care for the orphans and to help maintain the {{Masquerade}} by removing himself and the possibility of uncomfortable questions. The dark nature of the trope is subverted in this case, as the whole episode occurs while Simon and Kamina's group were in their city; the trio end up going with them, becoming significant characters as the series progresses.

However, it does add further tragedy, since Rossiu is placed in an extremely similar situation post-TimeSkip

* The pet version is subverted in a ''Series/ModernFamily'' episode when Jay, Gloria, and Manny are annoyed by their neighbor's dog's constant barking. One day the dog disappears and the owner accuses them of killing him. Jay suspiciously confronts Gloria, who tells him she took the dog to a farm and "He's in a better place." Jay calls these phrases out as euphemisms for killing the dog, but it turns out Gloria's telling the literal truth: she sent the dog to live on her hairdresser's brother's farm.

* DaveBarry once wrote about how his daughter Sophie took in a bug from the porch which she named "Melvin". Melvin of course quickly died and he and his wife, instead of explaining this to her, kept replacing it with a new "Melvin" from the porch (there were a lot of those kinds of bugs apparently). The same column detailed his attempts to buy a pet fish for Sophie which he said had to "look like other fish in case - God forbid - we have to Melvinize it".
