* Starting in spring of 2018, as [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Channel Awesome]] imploded around Creator/DougWalker, his brother Rob, and CEO Mike Michaud following several publicly revealed allegations[[note]]mismanagement, favoritism, hypocrisy, misogyny, unsafe filming conditions, and ignoring the concerns of other producers on their part; sexual harassment on the part on Mike Ellis; rape and sexual grooming allegations against the late [[WebVideo/YouCanPlayThis Justin Carmichal]][[/note]] and the poor responses from the management, the majority of the remaining producers basically said "ScrewThisImOuttaHere" and proceeded to bolt.

With the three above, Michaud did horrendous apologies, Doug said he wasn’t allowed to say anything except that set conditions had improved (and had apologised before for needing to stick in his head in the sand) while Rob deleted social media but carried on perfectly normal in videos.

* ''[[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe The Masque of the Red Death]]''. They shut themselves in a tower to avoid a plague and hold a party. The whole point of the story is to give them a massively karmic death, a ''red'' death. The source tale, ''Literature/TheDecameron'', did not kill off the characters. It's just an excuse for a frame tale that shuts people in a room so they'll tell stories to pass the time.

* In the season 4 finale of ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', Alfred and Lucius Fox watch helplessly from a balcony on Bruce's mansion, drinking tea as ash falls like snow around them, before deciding that they're not ''that'' helpless. It's possibly the best scene in the entire series.
