* The 6th arc of ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' is the closest the story gets to an outright happy ending. The seventh arc then provides ''two'' different warnings that to continue reading is to get a much more depressing end. The first is in the description when the game is opened. "Things you become able to see with love. Things you become unable to see because of love. By knowing love and believing in magic, the door to the Golden Land was opened. However, the tale of love ends here. What will be told from now on is only a tale of cruel tragedy and harsh truth..." At the end of the seventh arc, just in case the audience was still holding out hope for a happy ending to be yanked out of everything during the final arc, Lambda and Bern then warn you in red that [[color:red:This story will not have a happy ending.]] The ending of the eighth arc itself is an improvement over the seventh, but only from "bad" to "bittersweet."

This trope is named for the warning the "[[LiteraryAgentHypothesis author]]" of ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' gives at the beginning of each book, suggesting that you likely will be much happier if you read something else. [[SugarBowl Perhaps about a happy little elf?]]

** The above warning in the fansub was so notorious that English releases of the DVD booklet referenced how Chise and Shuji's Blade Runner style running into the distance together had been passed around the fans as the unofficial happy ending.

* There's a very quiet one in ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine''. The first thing in the game that you see is a big red "STOP" sign. About halfway through the game, you find another one, this one filled with bullet holes.

About halfway through the game, you find another one, this one filled with bullet holes. This comes immediately before the first huge twist that reveals the true, deconstructive nature of the game, [[spoiler:the white phosphorus shelling and its civilian casualties]].
