* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': The titular character starts out just trying to kill the local vampires, but quickly starts having to thwart the attempts of an old, powerful vampire, the Master, who is trying to get out of the magical cage he is trapped in. By the end of the season, she has to stop the Master from opening the Hellmouth, and act which would lead to a flood of demons entering the world and destroying all human life. The second season escalates the threat from "just" loss of all human life to loss of the very existence of the world.

It doesn't matter what the party's original goals were (or those of its members); they're going to end up SavingTheWorld from an unstoppable, inconceivable threat - and since YouCantThwartStageOne, they will only defeat said threat only when the world is right on the brink of doom.

* ''Radio/BleakExpectations'' starts out as a straightforward (if often surreal) parody of CharlesDickens' life stories such as ''Literature/GreatExpectations'' or ''DavidCopperfield''. Thanks to SerialEscalation, by series two the antagonist has [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons crossed the line from everyday villainy to cartoonish supervillainy]], and in the SeasonFinale the hero has to save the world from an AlienInvasion.

* The ''{{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 ''{{Pokemon Mystery Dungeon}}'' 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.
