** Played especially straight at the opening cutscene of the Exodus level, when Noble Six crests a hill, only to see the "crown jewel" city of New Alexandria being razed and glassed by the Covenant. Includes a drawn-out camera reveal over the hill and a brief pause as Six surveys the damage, poignantly [[spoiler:holding Jorge's dogtags.]]

* In the season 3 finale of ReBoot we see Mainframe crash. Basically the entire city falls apart and everything but the Principal Office falls into the energy sea. The final shot is Dot and Bob staring at each other while everything fades to black. Fortunately [[DeusExMachina The User intervenes]] and fixes everything.
* In SamuraiJack, an episode has the Emperor, Jack's father, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero unintentionally restoring Aku to his full power]]. The demon binds him to trees and forces him to watch him lay waste upon his beloved kingdom.
