* Michael doesn't take it well in the ''KnightAndRogueSeries'' when he [[spoiler:develops magic]], something no inteligent human is suposed to have. His initial reaction to the discovery is quickly cast aside horror-he's in a burning building after all-but once the discovery has time to sink in he spends a few moments contemplating death over living the rest of his life as some [[CursedWithAwesome horrid freak.]]

* ''WebAnimation/MysterySkullsAnimated'': Nonverbal, but Lewis' reaction to waking up in a coffin after his death and discovering that he's now a pretty terrifying ghost is pretty clearly shown as a mixture of horror and sadness.

* In {{Woody Allen}}'s ''Film/AMidsummersNightSexComedy'', pacifist intellectual Leopold has a dream about becoming a Neaderthal, full of sex and violence. When he wakes up, he finds out his fiance has been cheating on him. He grabs a bow and arrow and goes after him. When he shoots someone - the wrong man, no less! - and has no regrets about it, only pondering, "What have I become?" Of course, he naturally goes back to [[HospitalHottie hot nurse Dulcy, telling her "Blood! I've drawn blood, and I ''relished'' it!", before ripping off her clothes to have wild sex with her (she later says he was fantastic.)

* In ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow Kings Quest VI']]', the Lord of the Dead is reminded by Alexander of how he came from a human life to an eternally damned existence.And this fazes him just enough to make him shed a single tear.Which is still good, considering he grants Alexander his wish to resurrect Cassima's parents.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' has an unspoken version of this trope, in the form of a 'necessary' PyrrhicVictory for Rena: yes, her loved ones would have all died for real if she just gave up, but by the time she finds a way to save them that is sub par but acceptable for a little girl, [[spoiler:the victory is so bitter that even though she won, she can't help but witness all the suffering that still goes on. To keep trying to find a way to make everything perfect, she has to resort to murder herself. OF HER MOTHER]]. No matter how happy she is from defying fate, she can no longer experience that happiness as an innocent child. The anime is MUCH more merciful with a perfect ending after all the hard work she did, but the stinger reveals that in one alternate timeline Rena [[spoiler: convinced the BigBad as a child to make a suicidal choice, not realizing what she had just chosen. It's unknown whether the final scene is her being happy that her parents are still alive or her being obliviously a ghost]], but convincing a little girl to be suicidal is NOT a sane act. And then Rena smiles regardless.

* The amnesia thing was done previously in the ''TheSixMillionDollarMan'' episode "Stranger in Broken Fork", friendly locals and all. But with the cruel twist that Steve freaks out for (almost) nothing -- he thinks he's ''all'' robot when in fact he has just three (superpowered) prosthetic limbs and an eye.
