* In the GrandFinale of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' has all the turtles' actions end up for naught, as they fail to stop a mutagen bomb from going off, which ends up [[ApocalypseHow destroying civilization and wiping out the human race]]. All their friends are dead and what remains of the Earth is now a hellish wasteland populated by hostile mutants. It does end on a [[BittersweetEnding bittersweet]] note though, with [[EarnYourHappyEnding the brothers reunited after decades separated and having found a new home to live peacefully]].

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'':
** In Episode 118, when the AlphaBitch Pretty posts humiliating pictures of Kaeloo, Stumpy, Quack Quack and Mr. Cat on social networking site "[[BlandNameProduct Fakebook]]", they get revenge on her, and then the fight escalates until the four of them use DisproportionateRetribution to punish her. At the end of the episode, they decide that they were too harsh and go to apologize and give her some presents, [[spoiler: but before they can, they find out that she wrote a book revealing all of their embarrassing secrets and already published two million copies. They decide to leave without saying anything and accept that they'll never change her.]]
** In Episode 124, Kaeloo, Stumpy and Quack Quack play a new game that uses technology which requires an immense amount of concentration. The episode goes well and they have fun together, but at the very end of the episode, [[spoiler: since [[TheDitz Stumpy]] doesn't have much in the way of a brain, concentrating proves to be too much for him and he has to go to the hospital, and ''[[TheyKilledKennyAgain ends up flatlining]]''[[note]][[ButtMonkey Stumpy]] dies fairly often on this show, he's fine by the next episode[[/note]]. Of course, this being ''Kaeloo'', nobody cares, but it still is pretty sad.]]

* ''Reah: Face the Unknown'' ends with a final encounter with the phantom Alchemist, who delivers a ominous speech that blows away anything presumed about the player's reason for ever coming to the planet, Reah. [[spoiler: Everything the player had seen from the beginning was actually made up by the Alchemist, as part of his "cybernetic dream", and that the alchemist wasn't just a ghost, but some kind of AI. Furthermore, the player has already come along the path he took before, hence why everyone along the way knew him. It's implied that the alchemist had wiped the player's memory, and used him as a test subject of sorts for some kind of experiment. And on top of it all, the alchemist intends to [[AndIMustScream keep using this person for as many times as he sees fit.]] ]] The player character normally talks a lot, but in this scene, [[NothingIsScarier he has no words to say]]. After the alchemist stops talking, the game then abruptly turns to a "GAME OVER" screen, and no possible alternate endings exist for this game.

* An Creator/OscarWilde short story, ''The Star Child'', the eponymous star child learnt AnAesop about humility and not judging others based on physical appearance. He is rewarded for his troubles by being reunited with his birth parents, and eventually succeeding them as a King. Then the story ends with a sentence saying that the star child would die young, and that the ruler after him was a cruel tyrant.

* In the final episode of ''{{Series/Dinosaurs}}'', the main character accidentally triggers an ice-age by over-industrializing the world. He then has to explain why they're all going to die to his youngest child. Cut to the outside of the house, where snow is piling over the entire house. In the final shot, a newscaster solemnly states that the snow is getting harsher, the days are getting darker, and there's no end in sight. He issues a formal "Good night". He reconsiders for a moment, then looks straight in to the camera with weary, uncertain eyes, and solidly states, "Goodbye."

* In ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'', after spending the entire game learning, forming strong friendships, and growing more powerful, with the player watching Emerl grow from babyhood to a mature young robot, Eggman overloads him with power and makes him go crazy. You play as Sonic to kill him.

** The ending of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' came close, but the start of ''Zeo'' reversed most of its more serious consequences back to the status quo, whereas the start of ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'' took the SuddenDownerEnding and ran with it.
* The finale of ''Series/{{Blackadder}} Goes Forth''. 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]].
