* ''Anime/LittleWitchAcademia'' is from the same people that made ''Kill La Kill'', and has a similar structure: the first half is mostly episodic adventures in an enclosed space (an academy in both cases), then the BigBad is revealed in the second half and the threat rapidly escalates. In this case, Akko the witch goes from attending magic lessons to saving the world from being blown up by a literal magic missile, i.e. an ICBM possessed by dark energy as a result of one of the Big Bad's experiments gone haywire.

* The ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games, at least since Gen III, barring most of the remakes. It always starts out as some kid leaving their small town on a journey ToBeAMaster, and escalates to them saving the world from the regional criminal organization who plans on TakingOverTheWorld (or reshaping it) using the version's indicated legendary pokemon. Gen IV ups the ante, where the protagonist is forced to intervene in order to save ''all of existence''.
** The ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' games are no different, always beginning with you helping your partner to chase their dreams, then eventually revealing you're a ChosenOne who needs stop some manner of world-ending crisis.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' begins with Negi's misadventures as a teacher of an all-girl junior high school class with the goal of finding his father. The final arc involves him and his BattleHarem saving not Earth, but another world entirely. [[spoiler: Interestingly, saving the world is the end goal of the villains, they just have a different method of doing it that involves the sacrifice of a lot of the denizens of said world, who are just illusions]].

Despite trying is SummonABiggerFish by teaming with the Lava Lord, Skullmaster is too powerful, defeat the Lava Lord, and ultimately gets the cap so he can enact a ceremony to reshape the world as he saw fit. [[spoiler: It's only due to Max interrupting and contaminating the ceremony at the last minute that the world is saved...albeit at the expense of throwing Max back to the day he got the cap. But hey, not all bad, Virgil and Norman, who died during the finale, are alive again and the three still have their memories of the events of the previous timeline, meaning they now have an edge over Skullmaster.]]

They aren't able to stop him from gaining a power up to do so. But his end goal to was reset the world without a Joestar line as to avenge Dio. Despite killing near all the main heroes. The one remaining ally manages to off him at the last possible moment. The world is reset but the Joestar line survives.]]



* The ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' GrandFinale, ''The Golden Goose'', starts out with tussle between Scrooge and Glomgold over the cursed artifact (which can turn anything it's beak touches into gold, with the right magic word). The story escalates when the Golden Goose sets off the "golden death" - and Scrooge must return the goose to it's magic fountain before the entire world turns to gold!

gold! Just ''barely'' managing to do it.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' [[BookEnds ends as it began, with an alien invasion]], this time by Darkseid and his forces. The scale was so massive that both heroes ''and'' villains had to team up to fight them. [[spoiler: And of all people, it's ''Luthor'' who ends up saving the day by using the Anti-Life Equation to send both to the Source Wall, causing Darkseid's forces to retreat]].

[[spoiler: Scooby saves the day, but the timeline is changed since, without the entity's malicious influence, the people around them lead better lives. Good for them but rather bland for the gang since mystery solving was pretty much their trade. Least until they get a message from a professor who informs them the town may be clear of mysteries but there are others to solve beyond it. Time for a road trip!]]

* It's easy to forget these days that ''Franchise/MassEffect's'' Commander Shepard wasn't born killing Reapers. [[LateArrivalSpoiler Minus out-of-character knowledge]] you start the first game expecting an apprenticeship of sorts under a turian Spectre named Nihlus. [[ItWasHisSled That isn't the case for long.]] And until the Reapers actually arrive in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' the only folks who believe you and are willing to help are the ones who either know you personally (your squad and crew, mainly), and crazies like the Illusive Man.
* Particularly galling in ''IllusionOfGaia'', where your goal is generally exploring ancient ruins and collecting mystic statues.
