** Story goes Creator/BenAffleck was vying to be Batman during the period between ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' and ''Film/BatmanBegins'', but because of the DevelopmentHell he took on ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'' as the closest thing. His career tanking from ''Film/{{Gigli}}'' didn't help, either. Even after rebuilding his career by being both actor and director, he admitted to being surprised when he was approached to be Batman because he was getting older and couldn't play a 20-something or 30-something Batman, and was delighted to learn they were going in the ''[[ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns Dark Knight Returns]]'' direction for ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''.

* Creator/ScottCawthon was a troubled game developer who could never quite be a success. His then-most well known game, ''Chipper and Sons Lumber Co.'', was slammed and mocked for its unintentionally creepy character designs, devastating Scott and prompting him to make one last game before finding a new career. That game was ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'', and [[CareerResurrection his life was never quite the same afterwards]].
* Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio was, for the longest time, victim to a [[MemeticMutation legendary]] AwardSnub, having never won an Oscar despite many well-received roles. Come the 2016 Academy Awards, however, and the unthinkable occured - he finally got the Oscar his fans feel he deserved.

** After years of being the game's ButtMonkey, shown [[RedShirt dying in droves]] in the fluff, getting saddled with unplayable units, and being to some extent incompatible with the current core rules, around the transition to 4th Edition the [[BadassNormal Imperial Guard]] finally got a decent codex. Their 5th edition update brought such treats as support gunships and the ability to field more tanks than any other army, pushing the guard into full WhosLaughingNow territory.

** ''It's Magic, Charlie Brown'' throws two bones at Charlie Brown after Snoopy makes him disappear. When Charlie Brown sees Lucy playing with her football, he takes the opportunity to kick it from her and then ''taunt her about it''. Later on when after Snoopy brings him back, Lucy tells him he can't prove that he kicked the football. Snoopy retaliated by suspending her in midair and leaves her there as he and Charlie Brown happily skip away together.

* ''Fanfic/GodSlayingBladeWorks'' has several omakes where Kariya Matou, one of the biggest {{Butt Monkey}}s of ''LightNovel/FateZero'', gets to earn his happy ending, and one where the 4th Holy Grail War's Lancer gets to die a heroic death just like he wanted instead of getting betrayed and killed like a dog.

** Before that, he actually managed to get a real date. Granted, the woman in question was a bit of a {{Gonk}}, but despite that she had a lovely personality, and they both had a wonderful time.

* A ''{{Blondie}}'' comic showed '''everything''' going right for Dagwood, like the inversion of a HumiliationConga: Mr. Dithers praised him and gave him a raise for some particularly skilled work, Blondie prepared his favorite meal and then smilingly waved him off to poker night, where he can't seem to get a bad hand.... The final panel shows Blondie, sitting up in bed, smiling out at the reader (and looking '''hot''' in her nightie) and saying something to the effect that "[[BreakingTheFourthWall after X years in this comic strip]], he deserves a day like this!"
* In ''{{Garfield}}'', Jon is finally now dating Liz the veterinarian, after crushing on her without success for, what? Thirty years?
* One strip of ''TheBornLoser'' had the protagonist having a moment of good luck for once. ''Once.''

* In the ''Space Quest Incinerations'' fan game, General Bruce Havok, one of the most badass guys in the galaxy, says to Roger Wilco, savior of the galaxy yet perpetual [[TheChewToy Chew Toy Extraordinaire]], that he knows of Roger's heroism and is a big fan. While he did treat Roger like crap earlier, it's largely because it's been many years since Roger's exploits have occurred, and thus Bruce didn't realize he was dealing with ''that'' Roger Wilco, and Roger is something of a JerkAss when he's not saving the galaxy.
