* The first half of ''Anime/PokemonHeroes'' has Ash befriending the two legendary dragon Pokemon, Latios and Latias, in a bright and colorful CityOfCanals. The second half is about the heroes saving a kidnapped Latios from a duo of villains only for him to end up pulling a HeroicSacrifice [[NotQuiteSavedEnough after a grand total of two minutes he was rescued during the climax]].

The 3-way baby of MoodWhiplash, CerebusSyndrome, and DownerEnding. See also DiabolusExMachina, TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, TheBadGuyWins, GainaxEnding, CruelTwistEnding, ShootTheShaggyDog, and KillEmAll. Opposite of a SurprisinglyHappyEnding. Can be a result of CreatorBreakdown. Can result in major EndingAversion and cries of DarthWiki/RuinedForever. Could have induced [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy audience apathy]]... but then, you've probably already finished watching it, haven't you?

* ''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".

* ''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 to make matters worse, his girlfriend, Berri, is dead. As for Conker himself, it's highly implied that he's spiraling towards a booze-filled self-destruction.]]

* If any episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has any character change in a positive way or gain something nice, and they keep it near the end of the episode -- [[YankTheDogsChain expect it be suddenly yanked away]] soon afterward. [[StatusQuo The Status Quo]] ''must be preserved''. That being said, there were only a few notable exceptions: [[spoiler:Barney recovering from his alcoholism (although the writers eventually undid this), Lisa telling Homer that she'll never be happy with her body image (though the whole thing about Lisa being insecure with her body hasn't been mentioned since that episode), and Milhouse's parents staying divorced (though they did get remarried in "Little Orphan Millie,")]].

** Also because for anyone with any emotional investment in WW1 (read: everyone in Britain above a certain age), the ending is actually [[TropesAreNotBad incredibly touching, respectful, and appropriate]]. Writer Ben Elton's uncle, an eminent historian specialising in the period, was outraged when he first saw ''Blackadder Goes Forth'' and practically disowned him for what he saw as trivialisation of the war. After seeing the final episode, he wrote his nephew a letter apologizing and praising him for the way it was handled.

* The visual novel ''Malus Code'' is mostly a light-hearted romp not unlike ''Tokyo School Life'' (made by the same people), but at the end of each route things become ''very'' [[NightmareFuel messed up]]. Also, after finishing the game once, the title screen changes to a more horror-inducing one. You can see the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnYSAXigYks&list=PLZLY-65da7WaizguFZQw4hiTfLFXDaLRV&index=9 endings]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMOWcM2cMlQ for]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uu5MT9nVLJA yourself]].

* The {{classic Disney short|s}} "Chicken Little" plays like a normal Cat-and-Mouse cartoon... until the end, where despite the Narrator's assurance to the audience that everything turns out alright, Foxy Loxy catches and eats all the chickens, turkeys, and ducks, smiling smugly all the while. "Hey, wait a minute!" the Narrator exclaims. "This isn't right! That's not the way it ends in my book!" Foxy, leaning against his "[[Literature/MeinKampf Psychology]]" book, responds, "Oh, yeah? Don't believe everything ya read, brother!" Yeah.

* ''CampLazlo'' - Lumpus was never really the scoutmaster, he was a ''literally insane'' man who had locked the real scoutmaster away, presumably for the duration of the entire show, to steal his life. He is sent to an asylum. This twist is so dark and downright shocking that the entire cast except Lazlo can do nothing but stand in silence for a moment. WordOfGod claims that Jane Doe busted him out afterward and married him, but it's still a ShockingSwerve.

* The infamous ending of ''Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman.'' The Vyram have been defeated and all is well. We flash forwards two years to [[spoiler:Ryo and Kaori's wedding]] and then [[spoiler:Gai gets murdered by a random street thug.]] Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger is a massively humorous SelfParody of the franchise. First season still maintains its humorous tone, and the second season as well. But then, in the second season's finale, [[spoiler:after spoofing the HeroicSacrifice in the Delusional World, it turns out said sacrifice had the Akibarangers KilledOffForReal [[YourMindMakesItReal in the real world]].]]
