** To say nothing of the 2016 Atlanta Falcons, who had their best season since their last Super Bowl appearance 18 years ago and made it to Super Bowl LI against the Patriots, where they squandered a ''25-point lead'' and the Patriots forced overtime for the first time in the history of the big game, and it wasn't long before that lead was entirely for naught.

* ''{{Jeopardy}}'' only allows the top winner to keep their money; this led Pat Sajak to joke about it on WheelOfFortune when ''J!'' announcer Johnny Gilbert substituted for Charlie O'Donnell one week.
-->'''Pat:''' (Wheel of Fortune) isn't like ''Jeopardy!'', where if you finish in second place with $10,000, you get a lounge chair.
-->'''Johnny:''' But it's a $10,000 lounge chair.

* In ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', Ash never makes it further than the Top eight or maybe the Top 4 of a major League tournament. The one time he became runner-up, however, the most vocal InternetBackdraft erupted, thanks in no small part to the fact it was hyped up as his ultimate battle and victory.

* An ComicBook/{{Archie}} story in the 1970s had Reggie, Riverdale High's ace athlete suffering a sprained ankle just before a decathalon competition against Central High. Archie is recruited to replace Reggie with the result of Archie coming in second and third, time after time, event after event. But this competition is judged on the points system. Dilton Doiley points out that Archie's constant second and third place finishes add up which gives Riverdale High the victory. Reggie--on crutches--is livid as Archie is hoisted on the shoulders of the school faculty in victory.

* In ''Franchise/StarTrek: Balance of Power'', an auction is selling off a well-known inventor's works to the highest bidder. The coveted lot is a WaveMotionGun, with the Federation, Klingon, Romulan, and Cardassian governments all bidding on it. The auctioneer invokes a rule that requires the second highest bid to pay up as well, without getting anything in return. This works to drive up the price of the item. [[spoiler:Picard (representing the Federation) and Worf (representing the Klingons) agree to pool their latinum into a single high bid to overcome the Cardassian bid, resulting in the Cardassian representative being forced to fork over a ''lot'' of latinum for nothing. But then the photon pulse cannon turns out to be a dud. Luckily, they come up with a way to screw over the Cardassians yet again by having a Ferengi "steal" the plans for the cannon and sell it to the same Cardassian representative.]]
