But sure enough, she's fallen victim to this as well, with her marriage becoming increasingly strained to the point where her husband reveals that he's been having an affair and them now planning to divorce.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' is on a constant quest to find a way to [[FishOutOfTemporalWater time-travel back to his 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 [[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack2017 fifth season]], with Jack's constant failures at trying to save the world ''over several decades later'' driving him to madness and despair.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' hilariously subverts this trope with the episode "The Job". The normally lazy Richard tries to get a job, but it's soon discovered that if he does, [[ApocalypseHow it will destroy the universe]].

** Face it: Ash's Pikachu is never going to be a Raichu. This is explained in a few episodes, most notably when the Vermilion Gym match has it face its evolved form. In-universe, it's a matter of pride. In the games, it's because Pikachu can still learn more moves from getting stronger while Raichu, being a stone-evolved Pokémon, can't learn much (such as learning Volt Tackle in the Battle Frontier arc, then trading it for Electro Ball early on in Unova). And in real life, it's because they'd have to redesign the series' iconic mascot. Taken to a particular extreme in the Mistralton Tower episode, in which Ash performs a DivingSave to prevent a Thunder Stone from accidentally hitting Pikachu.
