* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' has something like this as Frodo has been feeling like this. [[spoiler:Turns out being the Ringbeaerer did some heavy damage to his spirit, so he decides to leave with the elves toward their holy lands in the hope he can heal over time.]]

* Lanfeust des Étoiles (Lanfeust of Troy's “second season”) opens with just this trope. Lanfeust, having gained ultimate power and saved the world, is quite bored and is travelling the wilderness in search of some quest to do that could match his skills – ultimate power is rather hard to challenge though. So this was a rather good moment to [[RecycledInSpace send him to space]].

*** Well, sort of. Before she met the Doctor, she was a medical student, and after she leaves him she joins UNIT and becomes an alien-fighting {{badass}}. Though she does find time to qualify as a doctor. It's implied that even though she chose to leave, she couldn't just pick up where she'd left off, particularly after her year-long WalkingTheEarth nightmare situation.

* A particularly heartbreaking example happens in Episode 12 of Anime/Persona4TheAnimation. [[spoiler:Mitsuo]] traps [[TheHero Yu]] in a LotusEaterMachine where the Investigation Team have solved the murder case and all return to their normal lives. Yu then has to see all of his friends drift apart as they focus on their own lives and don't even meet up like they used to. The clincher is when Kanji begins to complain about how none of them really have anything to talk about in their meetings anymore. Fortunately, that does not happen after they defeat [[spoiler:Mitsuo]] and they all still insist on hanging out with each other.

* In the last chapter of Creator/PamelaDean's ''The Hidden Land'', Laurie actually says "What do we do now?" She and Ted have just returned from The Hidden Land, which they had imagined and played about for years as The Secret Country. Although readers are aware there's a third book, the bitter loss is described in painful detail. They even lampshade the "we learned something" business.

* Series 5 of ''Radio/BleakExpectations'' begins with Pip Bin's ArchEnemy, Mr. Gently Benevolent, apparently gone for good. This leaves Pip at a loose end, since he's spent half his childhood and all of his adult life thwarting Benevolent's increasingly complicated schemes for killing him and destroying the universe--he's delighted when Benevolent turns out to be NotQuiteDead, again.

Depending on the writer or director's choice, it can be a DownerEnding where the hero figures he has to just get used to it, or a more optimistic ending where things suggest that the Weird and Wonderful aren't entirely gone, or are coming back -- or that the hero can ''bring'' them back if he chooses. The optimistic version sometimes ties into a SequelHook. Alternatively, the writers can make it look like a happy ending, and FridgeLogic will kick in and turn it into an EsotericHappyEnding when you start thinking about this trope.

* The question rises at the end of ''[[Literature/TheBelgariad The Malloreon]]'', as the [[AC:Event]] that everything was building towards has come and gone. The Prophecy informs Belgarion that his new job is to [[spoiler:help the world settle into a new monotheism under Eriond, as the other gods are moving on to other worlds]]. It also adds that, after spending the past two decades constantly under threat of death, he and his friends should ''relish'' the boredom for a bit.
