* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': Homura's life is defined by a single goal: protect Madoka. Trouble is, no matter how many time-loops she goes through, that golden dream always manages to get away from her and she's forced to do it all over again, each time making the ultimate outcome darker and more tragic. Kyubey himself even points out she can't stop: if she were to, she would admit to herself that her entire endeavor was pointless and fall to despair. Come [[TheMovie Rebellion,]] however, and to everyone's abject amazement, Homura actually succeeds in her ultimate goal: [[spoiler: Madoka is brought back from being a goddess, her memories of that time are erased, and she's living a wonderfully mundane life, safe from the Magical Girl system.]] Mission accomplished...at, of course, a ''[[FaceHeelTurn hideous]]'' [[RealityBreakingParadox price.]]

** There's also Sayaka, who wants more than anything to win the love of her LoveInterest Kyousuke, and made her wish in order to fix his hand so he could carry out his dream as a violinist again. But Sayaka is too insecure to actually talk to Kyousuke about her feelings for him, and it isn't helped that [[spoiler:as a Magical Girl, she has essentially become an undead abomination, and feels that she is unworthy of him when she finds out the truth]]. Things end badly for Sayaka, [[spoiler:and she ultimately becomes a witch]].
