* During much of the Cold War, but especially after the Cuban Revolution (with the overthrow of a government in Guatemala a few years earlier apparently giving the US something like Bay of Pigs could even theoretically work), Central American politics were a tug of war between the USSR (and Cuba) on the one hand and the US on the other. It split the Catholic church right down the middle, with the hierarchy in Rome favoring the old elites and many lower clergy (up to some bishops) preaching "liberation theology" or even outright serving communist parties or governments (as Ernesto Cardenal did in Nicaragua). There death squads and atrocities, but overall the anti-communist atrocities were probably worse than the communist atrocities. Then communism fell and Cuba became too poor and had to focus on itself too much to fund revolutions abroad, so Central America could mostly run its own affairs... And while the death squads are gone and some of the former guerrillas have turned legitimate political party winning elections, Guatemala elected a literal clown, Nicaragua elected Ortega ''again'' (who had already been the guy the US wanted to get rid of 1979-1990) and overall the reaction to the end of outside meddling seems to have been "huh. What now?" Even when Honduras had a coup/constitutional crisis that ended with a left wing president deposed, the US actually ''condemned'' the acts of the Honduran right wing. Now where's the fun in ''that''?

* After episode 5 of ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', Haruko and Canti leave Mabase, and life for Naota briefly returns to normal. Naota is rather glad to have Haruko back in episode 6, well in time for the climactic showdown and the series' explosive finale.

Naota is rather glad to have Haruko back in episode 6, well in time for the climactic showdown and the series' explosive finale. After said finale both Haruko and Mamimi part terms with Naota on firmer, more natural grounds and he seems to be much more comfortable with the circumstances of being a normal kid.

* In ''Anime/YuYuHakusho'' Yusuke feels this after winning the Dark Tournament. He lampshades it too by saying, "It's going to feel weird not fearing for my life all the time." Kurama even agrees.

* With glasnost, and later, when the [[UsefulNotes/TheGreatPoliticalMessUp 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.
** Also, not ''everyone'' had more freedom of speech after the Union fell. People in ''some'' parts of the former USSR had more freedom of speech. Other parts just changed their economic system to capitalism while keeping a form of dictatorship in government. The most notable examples are the ex-Soviet Central Asian republics (the "-stans"), but Russia itself wasn't exactly brimming with freedom in the 1990s.

* 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.
** Feminism seems to have undergone the same process: during the first and for most of the second wave, there were real, tangible goals to reach and inequalities to sort out. After things like the Equal Pay Act, the Civil Rights Movement of TheSixties and an increasing equality standard in the work place, the public moved on satisfied since women in the West can now choose what they want to do as freely as men - but feminist activists don't think so, resulting in them fighting the ever-nebulous and supposedly omni-present Patriarchy instead of mobilising and going to countries where women's rights are still considered a bad word, like much of Africa or Asia. Examples like feminists pushing for the banning of Formula 1 Gridgirls, which in 2018 ''put women out of work in the name of feminism'', do not help the common perception that feminism has turned into a MoralGuardian fueled female supremacy movement. [[NoTrueScotsman Nor does the claim "but that's not]] '''[[NoTrueScotsman real]]''' [[NoTrueScotsman feminism".]]

* This happened frequently in ''Series/TheWestWing'': after solving this week's problem, most of the staff sat around exhausted but exulting in their victory. President Bartlet played this one straight: he walked back to his desk, turned to his Chief of Staff and said "What's next?". Because, for the President, there is always something next.

* It's implied that Link was hit with this after the events of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' (from the child timeline) and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask''. With his adventures completed and his duties fulfilled, Link has nothing else to do and lives the rest of his life regretting that he could not pass on his sword techniques to another person. The Hero's Shade in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' is confirmed by WordOfGod that he is that same Link and he finally passes on his knowledge to the current Link.

** The USSR used to provide stable jobs, and many people had higher wages, old-age pensions and generally better living standards than today.

* ''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''.
