** There is some ambiguity over whether the [[spoiler: 'almost everyone is killed']] bit is true, but it's not really all that important. [[spoiler: Seeing as even if most of them still live, you're not really welcome home anyway]], and by that point it's already been indicated to you that the BigBad's plan has killing you as a fairly important part.

** Most conspicuous in the [[ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX MAX miniseries]] ''Born'', set during Castle's time in Vietnam. Castle is seen having an internal monologue with himself, pushing him towards violence and guaranteeing that he could keep Castle's war going on forever. [[spoiler: Towards the end of the book, Castle is in the middle of a truly hopeless battle, alone versus a massive amount of VC. The voice says that it will let Castle live and continue to fight... if he pays a price. Castle agrees, goes on to murder the entire enemy force alone, but promptly leaves the service, planning to live in peace with his wife and children. The voice then reminds him, there's a price to be paid.]]

* In ''VideoGame/WildCard'' Ace's initial reaction to discovering that the magic rock he and his sister Kris found is one of the rune stones that are supposed to be [[SealedEvilInACan keeping the demon Rasha'yad imprisoned]] is to leave it with the town wise man so he can get some actual adventurers to deal with the mess. Then they return to the family farm only to find it destroyed by the local thieves' guild, whose leader wants to collect the stones for his own purposes.

Added DiffLines:

* TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening [[PlayingWithATrope plays with]] this with the character Metathron. The angelic messenger Metathron is the personification of this trope, being charged with delivering tragic Calls To Adventure by a being responsible for creating heroes. Unfortunately, it never understood that the would-be heroes are supposed to overcome their tragedy, not be destroyed by it, so Metathron ended up going rogue and now delivers destructive Calls to people it thinks ''can't'' rise to the challenge of becoming heroes.
