* ''VideoGame/DreamfallTheLongestJourney'' asks this question in regards to the protagonist of the original ''VideoGame/TheLongestJourney'', April Ryan: after sacrificing most of her ordinary life to SaveBothWorlds, she was left to pick up the pieces without any recognition of her ordeal from anyone (since most people who knew the real story were dead). As a result, she became a bitter cynic with DeathSeeker tendencies and refuses to get involved in anything remotely similar to another grand adventure in ''Dreamfall''.

* With glasnost, and later, when the Soviet Union fell, everyone suddenly had far more freedom of speech. What do you talk about? How the Soviet Union sucks? How the 90s economy sucks? What do you do now that you have all this freedom? Do you go on with your daily lives and live the same as you always have? Do you go check out that new [=McDonald=]'s in Red Square? WhyWeAreBummedCommunismFell is all about this. There are people nostalgic for the days of Communism in the Eastern Bloc because they had to be creative about everything they did. Now that they didn't have the excitement that little kids do when they do something naughty, it wasn't worth it anymore. It's hard to understand for Westerners.
** Well, the nostalgia for communism isn't really driven by this. It's mostly driven by the fact that the USSR used to provide stable jobs, and many people had higher wages, old-age pensions and generally better living standards than today.

* Dracon the Dragonslayer's campaign in ''Videogame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic'' ''III'' ''Armageddon's Blade'' ends with him finally slaying the mighty Azure Dragon. As he sits on the body of his fallen prey, he wonders why the victory feels so empty. Dracon had built up the Azure Dragon as the key to long sought personal contentment. He admits he was wrong and wonders what he'll do next.

* A lot of protesters run into this whenever their cause makes a major stride forward. For example the LGBTQ movement in the United States suddenly didn't have a main point to rally behind when gay marriage was legalized. After all fighting the nebulous threat of homophobia is more daunting and will obviously take decades.

* One Magazine/{{MAD}} comic strip, "It Only Hurts When I Laugh", featured a pair of conspiracy theorists discovering the conspiracy they had spent their whole lives planning for had been uncovered and the masterminds brought to justice. They briefly rejoice before realizing they'd entrenched themselves in the lifestyle so deep, they had nothing left with no conspiracy to plot against. After nearly being DrivenToSuicide, the two decide there must be a new conspiracy behind the solving of the old one and return to their lifestyles.

** The Inquisition itself is forced to confront this in the ''Trespasser'' DLC. Two years after the main story, the leaders of Orlais and Ferelden demand the Inquisition justify its heavily-armed presence in their nations now that the threats it formed to fight are long dead. [[spoiler: The Inquisitor can choose to either downsize the group and reform it as a peacekeeping force under the Divine, or disband it for fear of becoming complacent like many before them.]]

* This is a common reaction of any sports fanbase whose team wins a championship, particularly after a long drought. After a couple days of euphoria and celebration, it sets in that the season is over and the focus quickly shifts to next year. A few Chicago sportswriters made light of this in the days following the 2016 Cubs' World Series victory, stating that there was something strangely empty about going into the offseason without looking forward to breaking the so-called "Curse of the Billy Goat."
