* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'''s Golden Age Arc can be easily divided into two major parts. The first part is Guts's joining of the Band of the Hawk and working with Griffith and his NumberTwo Casca to crush his enemies and realize his ambitions, culminating in the ending of a long war for Midland which gets them and the rest of the Hawks knighted by the King of Midland himself. The midpoint comes when Guts leaves the Hawks and defeats Griffith, and Griffith tries to come back from this by boinking the Princess, which ''royally'' pisses off the King, and gets everyone in the Hawks declared outlaw. The second part, a year after the fateful event, has Guts returning and joining Casca and the Hawks on a daring rescue mission, only to find that Griffith is in no shape to lead them anymore, and being beset by hired scum and horrors bent on killing them all. It all culminates in Griffith [[DespairEventHorizon falling to despair]] and activating his Behelit, throwing Guts, Casca and everyone else into a demonic nightmare as the Eclipse goes down.

The second part, a year after the fateful event, has the Hawks struggling to survive the wrath of the King's men, and Guts returning after receiving a warning from the Skull Knight, reuniting with Casca and his surviving comrades. They mount a daring rescue mission into the Tower of Rebirth, but find Griffith in a very bad way. After fighting their way out, the Hawks are beset not only by hired warrior assassins sent to get the Princess back, but by an ArmyOfThievesAndWhores led by a truly nasty demonic piece of work, sent by the King to kill them all. And even after all that has been dealt with, it's still not over, because Griffith is in no shape to lead the Hawks anymore, and subsequently falls into enough despair to activate the Crimson Behelit, throwing Guts, Casca and the Hawks headlong into a demonic nightmare as the Eclipse goes down.

* ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}'' is neatly divided in half by the ship hitting the iceberg. The first part is Jack and Rose's StarCrossedLovers romance and the efforts of both Cal and Rose's mom to put a stop to it. Then at the midpoint the ''Titanic'' strikes the berg, and it's all about the ship sinking.

* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', there's a pretty obvious dividing line between the secretive guerrilla war and the final story arc where the Masquerade breaks. While the first part had plenty of dark moments, there was enough comedy and optimism to balance it out. By the end of it, however, the stress and repeated moral compromises have wrecked the team dynamic, to the point where they're barely even friends anymore, and the war ends with [[spoiler: Rachel dying and Jake committing a war crime.]]
