* ''ComicBook/AgeOfTheSentry'': The first five issues are faux-Silver Age wackiness, with the Sentry facing radioactive bears, planets about to give birth, overbearing shippers, himself from the Golden Age of Comic Books, superpowered hillbillies, a friend with romance problems, and Cranio (The Man With the Tri-Level Mind!). Issue 6 has [[spoiler:him learning his entire life is a lie, that he's been warping reality to fit around him since he doesn't really belong there. Cranio dies informing him of this secret, and then the Void completely drains the Sentry of life, killing him, before turning into a new version of the Sentry, with no-one the wiser.]]

* The season 1 finale of ''Series/DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency'' qualifies as this. Up until the last five minutes of the episode, everything seems to have ended happily: the case is solved, Estevez has gotten revenge for the death of his partner, Farah has come into a large sum of money and tells Dirk and Todd over brunch that she'll use it to start up the detective agency, Ken decides to stay with Bart and the two go on a road trip, and Amanda and the Rowdies are happily dancing in a field. Suddenly, [[StupidEvil Friedkin]] shows up at the police station and gloats that he's been made head of the newly-reestablished Blackwing initiative (and that he burned Farah's house down) before [[ShootTheShaggyDog brutally murdering Estevez]], all of the psychics and Ken are taken into CIA custody to be tortured and experimented on, and Todd learns that he's contracted pararibulitis.

* The original ending of ''Videogame/{{Portal}}'' was moderately happy, with the player successfully defeating the Mad AI [=GLaDoS=] and escaping from the facility. However, in the patch released shortly before ''Videogame/{{Portal2}},'' an unseen robot is heard, and it drags Chell ''back'' into the nightmarish Aperture Science Facility.

** In Episode 16, the episode has a generally funny plot, but at the end, Mr. Cat suggests kicking Kaeloo out of Smileyland and everyone else agrees. The episode ends with Kaeloo's friends kicking her out.

* ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion The End of Evangelion]]'', not when viewed as a stand-alone work, but as an end to the TV Series as a whole, is this after some heavy-handed CerebusSyndrome that had been dissipated by a [[GainaxEnding strange]] yet [[EsotericHappyEnding undeniably optimistic]] [[GrandFinale ending]] returns with a bitter spirit in this film adaption - resurrected by the [[FanMyopia alienation and dissatisfaction of the bulk of the series original fan-base]].

* The 2009 adaptation of ''VisualNovel/PhantomOfInferno'' followed the Elen route from the game all the way up to the more-or-less happey ending Elen and Reiji got, ending on the same image of Eren standing in the middle of the flower field, smiling... [[spoiler:then an Inferno sniper shoots Reiji dead and Elen kills herself out of grief]]. [[CaptainObvious Which isn't something that happened in the game.]]

* The Kid Loki storyline in ''ComicBook/JourneyIntoMystery'' and ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers'' ended this way with [[spoiler:the Old Loki erasing Kid Loki and taking over his body after he had essentially won back everyone's trust and became a hero.]]

** Made all the more sad because the same trope (KillEmAll) was played in two previous series [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]]. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that [[PlayedForLaughs playing the events of the finale for laughs]] this time would not have produced [[DudeNotFunny the best reaction]] given [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI what they concerned]].

* Music/DepecheMode has "Blasphemous Rumours"/"Somebody". It's about sixteen-year-old girl who attempts suicide, survives and is so thankful that she becomes renewed in her faith in God...only less than two years later, she is involved in a car accident, end up on life-support and dies.

* ''VideoGame/DrawnToLife: The Next Chapter'' for the DS. Basically, all of the adorable [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Raposa]] in the village are killed, G-Rated style (they fade away). One of the characters, named Mike, fades away last. The voice of Mike's sister Heather is heard asking the Creator, the god-like figure in the game, to bring her brother back, which at first seems like a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}. Then, her message changes and she was really trying to say, "God, just bring back my little brother to me." It is now [[TheReveal revealed]] that Mike and Heather are actually humans, and the whole story with the village of cute animals was AllJustADream that Mike was having. It wasn't a regular dream, either; it turns out that Mike and his family were in a ''car crash, which killed his parents, injured his sister, and put him in a coma.'' [[note]] The CompilationRerelease, on the other hand, has a way different ending: Mike and his sister Heather were outside catching fireflies, Mike accidently falls off of a tree while trying to catch one, sending him in a coma. This ending was most likely changed due to the rating in the original game. [[/note]]

* ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay''. After a humorous ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' styled adventure, Conker becomes King of All the Lands.... [[spoiler:but at a price: the people in his kingdom are all morons, and his girlfriend, Berri, is dead with the implication that he might've had a chance to bring her back but didn't take it, and by the time he realizes it, it's too late. As for Conker himself, it's highly implied that he's spiraling towards a booze-filled self-destruction.]]

* The infamous ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode ''Jurassic Bark'' shows one of the few positive things about Fry's life in the 20th century: the stray dog Seymore Asses who he befriended and adopted, and centers around him wanting to use the dog's remains to revive it. He ultimately comes to the conclusion that it would be wrong, since the dog lived it's natural lifespan and probably forgot all about him, and [[BittersweetEnding decides to let his friend rest in peace]]. Cue sudden [[PlayerPunch punch to the crotch]] that is the ending credits, where it shows Seymore [[TearJerker waited the rest of his natural life in front of the pizza parlor for Fry to come back]], not only because he loved his master that much, but also because Fry's last words to him were [[UndyingLoyalty "stay here, I'll be right back"]]. Its tearjerker status was so great that the writers [[AuthorsSavingThrow ended up retconning it]], and had a second Fry created via TimeyWimeyBall who took care of Seymore all those years in the past.

As a result, Carly's grade reverts to a D- and she is forced to attend her class's "Root and Berry Retreat" for extra credit.

* ''Webcomic/CtrlAltDel'' had a mini-arc in which the female lead Lihah becomes pregnant [[ConvenientMiscarriage only to have a miscarriage]]. Yes, this is the same comic in which the main character built a wacky human-hating robot out of an Xbox and who was once crowned the King of Gaming after an evil company that wanted to exploit the fictional gamer holiday of "Winter-een-mas".

Naturally, [[MemeticMutation the internet]] made its own humor out of the situation, making the miscarriage strip one of the comic's most famous, and arguably an inversion of this trope to new readers.
