--->'''Wesley:''' Have you ever considered piracy? You'd make a wonderful ''Dread Pirate Roberts''!

** While at the beginning of the movie the Joker blackmails Batman to try to get him to unmask, later he changes his mind and calls into a talk show where Coleman Reese is about to expose Batman's identity.
--->'''The Joker:''' I had a vision, of a world without Batman. The mob ground out a little profit and the police tried to shut them down, one block at a time. And it was so... ''boring''. I've had a change of heart. I don't want Mr. Reese spoiling everything, but why should I have all the fun? Let's give someone else a chance. If Coleman Reese isn't dead in sixty minutes then I blow up a hospital.

* The New England Patriots of the 21st century embody this trope. As of 2018, they have won their division in 16 out of the last 18 seasons, reached 12 AFC championship games, advanced to seven Super Bowls, and won five NFL championships. Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have cemented their places as the greatest coach and greatest quarterback, respectively, in NFL history. While the team has formed a dynasty of historic proportions that will likely never be equaled, it's safe to say that NFL fans have become numb to their perennial excellence. At this point, the Patriots missing the playoffs would be an infinitely bigger story than them winning another Super Bowl.

* In ''VideoGame/Injustice2'', this happens in Bane and Catwoman's arcade mode endings. Bane incites a convict uprising but eventually finds himself without any heroes or law enforcement to fight, and doesn't know what to do with himself at that point. And Selina fully commits to a [[DatingCatwoman relationship with Bruce Wayne]], but realizes it was only exciting when it was ForbiddenFruit, and being a billionaire's girlfriend meant she never had to steal ever again. She ultimately leaves him to return to her old life.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'', Hexadecimal infects Mainframe with the Medusa Bug, turning it to stone. All of its inhabitants are petrified. She won. Nobody could do anything about it, except for Bob, who [[BatmanGambit thanks Hex for making Mainframe so peaceful and predictable]]. After thinking quickly, Hex realizes she doesn't want peace and order, so she returns Mainframe to normal by [[ResetButton literally snapping her fingers.]] Though it was less "Victory Is Boring" and more "That particular victory would be boring", because with everything in eternal, unchanging stone, she was now in a stagnant, predictable, orderly world, which as a self-described Queen of Chaos, was anathema to her.
