* In the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' episode "Super Robin", Robin [[EmpoweredBadassNormal gains a bunch of superpowers]] and solves all the world's problems in three seconds. With no crime to fight, the Teen Titans disbands because they no longer have a purpose.
*In an episode of "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy", Billy begs Grim to give him yogurt-based superpowers after getting excited about the superhero mascot on a yogurt commercial. He flies to a deserted alien planet populated only by a derpy little alien. He becomes so bored and depressed and desperate for action that he declares all of the microbes on the planet an evil microscopic empire and literally drowns the entire planet in yogurt.

* This is the entire gag in the Huntsman segment of ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}''. Crime always seems to be in a lull, so Hunstman finds out that being a superhero is boring when there's nothing around to beat up. Instead he does mundane things with his time like visit his brother or go to the aquarium. Extra comedic effect when contrasted with the intro to the segment, which is much more action-packed (and longer) than the actual segment itself.

* In ''ReBoot'', Hexadecimal infects Mainframe with the Medusa Virus, turning it to stone. All of its inhabitants are petrified, 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.]]

* After acquiring RealityWarper powers that allows him to curb stomp just about anyone, Jack Noir from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005452 feels this way]]. He also realizes he needs to dial down his OmnicidalManiac nature or else he'll be left alone in creation with no one to kill.

* {{Exaggerated|Trope}} to ridiculous extremes in the remake of "Alfredo" from Action52Owns. [[spoiler:The final boss is actually the character from the original game who hijacked the remake and attempts to prevent it from being made, explaining that the end of a game is a FateWorseThanDeath for a video game character. It turns out he's right, too. Once you beat the game you become trapped on a blank screen with no escape and nothing to do.]]

* In the first VideoGame/{{Persona}} game, [[spoiler:this is what the BigBad Kandori feels by the time you reach him. After basically achieving godhood, he discovers having no one to oppose is him makes any further effort on his part rather meaningless, which makes him severely depressed. He steps up to fight after being insulted by [[TheSmartGuy Nanjo]].]]
