Luckily for them, [[AndTheAdventureContinues they are given a chance to travel the country solving more mysteries along the way.]]]]
*In the episode of "Annoying Orange" where Orange and Pear go to England and (predictably) meet an expy of Sherlock Holmes, the culprit turns out to be Watson all along.

* In the ''Marvel: The End'' series, {{Thanos}} succeeds in acquiring the Heart of the Universe and defeats the ''entire'' Celestial Order (Galactus, Infinity, Eternity, Order, Choas etc.) and finally ends all existence in the universe other than himself, but finds his efforts to be utterly pointless. He then discovers that a power other than them [[GambitRoulette may have even being manipulating these events to the point that Thanos himself will realise this]], so using the Heart of the Universe, Thanos restores the Universe to the way it was before.

* This trope is the focus of the ''Series/BreakingBad'' episode "Gliding Over All": Everybody who could pose a threat to Walt is now dead, Walt now has more money than he could possibly hope to spend or even launder and thanks to his new deal with Lydia, Walt's "empire" has basically become an average 9 to 5 job. Walt even decides to quit only for things to get complicated again due to [[spoiler:Hank discovering Walt's secret.]]

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7798790/12/Promises-of-a-Wandering-Hero Promises of a Wandering Hero]]'', [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Shirou]] admits that he gave up archery because he had perfect precision and accuracy. He'd hit exactly where he aimed every time and as a result, there was no more room for improvement. He didn't see the point in continuing when he'd always win.
