* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' is on a constant quest to find a way to [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong time-travel back to the past]] and destroy his {{arch nemesis}} [[BigBad Aku]]. However he never gets any closer to his goal; with every [[TimeTravel time portal]] getting destroyed or falling out of his reach, and Aku surviving every encounter with him.
** This gets {{deconstructed| trope}} pretty hard by the [[SamuraiJack/TropesSeason5 fifth season]], with Jack's constant failures at trying to save the world ''over several decades later'' driving him to [[SanitySlippage madness]] and {{despair| event horizon}}. Even Aku is depressed by their stalemate, due to years of failing to kill Jack (and discovering that he inadvertently made Jack [[TheAgeless immortal]]), so he no longer even bothers trying and just stays holed up in his lair, pretending that he no longer cares about the samurai.

Events conspire to ''finally'' get them both out of their funk and bring them to their final showdown [[spoiler:in the form of Ashi, who becomes Jack's LoveInterest and is, to everyone's surprise [[TomatoInTheMirror including her own]], Aku's [[HumanoidAbomination biological daughter]]]].

* Similar to Ben Grimm's situation further above, poor Bruce Banner will always be [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk the Hulk]]. He will never find a permanent cure, and because of that, he and Betty Ross will most likely always be StarCrossedLovers.

Things might have changed with Betty Ross becoming the Red She-Hulk, but she permanently lost her powers.

** The show was pretty bad about though in an effort to keep everyone single and hanging around Eric Foreman's house. Eric and Donna got the worst of it. At first they were going to high school, then they were preparing for college, then Eric's father Red had a heart attack and Eric had to stay behind to take care of him so Donna didn't go either. Then they broke up, got back together, decided to get married, called it off, then just hung around doing nothing until Eric left the show.

* Brutally deconstructed by the fifth season of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', with both the hero and villain just wanting everything to end: Jack has gone from an AllLovingHero to a ShellShockedVeteran who has slowly [[SanitySlippage lost his mind]] over the past fifty years, while Aku has gone from delightfully tormenting him to being depressed that Jack won't age and finally die.
