** There's also the one where the Rabbit dresses up like a kid, ''pays'' for a box of Trix, then the kids (read: little abominations) knock off his hat and steal the Trix.

** The single biggest moment goes to Plankton in the episode "Plankton's Regular": the episode starts with a man that regularly eats in the Chum Bucket and refuses to even eat a single Krabby Patty. Because of Mr. Krabs being jealous of him, [=SpongeBob=] and Krabs try everything to steal said customer from Plankton, to the point of trying to steal Plankton's recipe for chum. However, at the end of the episode, it's revealed that said customer was paid by Karen to eat in the Chum Bucket so Plankton would stop complaining about his lack of success, but he couldn't eat more chum anymore, regardless of the money (they already pumped his stomach many times). Plankton is left in tears while Krabs laugh at his misery. Note that, even having only one customer, Plankton immediately stopped trying to steal the Krabby Patty formula.

** The end of Season 6 ''may'' rectify this. Considering the above, "wait and see" is the best policy.
*** The trope was then painfully executed over the course of Season 7, driving House even further from happiness.

** Shinji... poor, poor Shinji. Specific example: That kind, charming young boy without any debilitating emotional trauma who actually cares for you? [[spoiler:He's actually an Angel, and you have to kill him]]. Sorry. As well as mid-series, where he begins to get some confidence, it seems that he has some chance to reconcile with his dad, and he feels in general a bit more like the hero of a more optimistic giant robot series -- needless to say, it doesn't last.

** Shinji... poor, poor Shinji. The universe seems to have it out for this poor kid, such that anytime that things begin to look up for him or he tries to do something heroic or badass, something will inevitably happen to smack him right back down and send him into another HeroicBSOD or worse.

** Asuka wakes up from a ConvenientComa in the movie and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome brings the awesome]] by going into combat within 5 minutes of getting out. She wipes out a whole army, so they send in these 9 [[FanNickname Har]][[EldritchAbomination pies]]. She only has 3 and a half minutes of battery power and a progressive knife against a nearly impossible to break AT Field, They have no pilots (so they can't be incapacitated as easily) and a copy of the best weapon in the series. Asuka wins before she runs out of time. [[spoiler:But the result is [[NauseaFuel really awful]]. She gets [[EyeScream speared through the eye]], her guts ripped open, and ''eaten alive'' while the poor girl is desperately trying to fight back. Then, it looks like it's going to get better as she is [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome STILL ALIVE]] despite having endured all of this. She reaches for the berserker mode button to reactivate the Eva and go back to kicking ass... but then they slice off her arm and [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impale her repeatedly]] until she dies.]]

Each time, Quack Quack wins. Mr. Cat believes that Kaeloo is playing favorites and even gives a CallBack to another episode where she cheated. Kaeloo walks offscreen and slides a giant box containing a "surprise" for Mr. Cat towards him. He makes a short speech saying how he's finally gotten lucky for once in his life... and Kaeloo, angry at having been accused of cheating, jumps out of the box and beats him up.]]
** In the episode "Let's Play Air Pockets", Kaeloo forces Stumpy to take a plane trip on a plane where she is an air hostess, despite the fact that he's afraid of heights. Stumpy tries to calm down, and finally realizes that he can calm down by playing video games.

* For another ''Anime/YuGiOh'' example (this one from season zero), Jonouchi enters a game show to win a million yen so he can pay off his father's debts. In traditional ''Anime/YuGiOh'' style, the host of the game show is a [[DickDastardlyStopsToCheat Cheating Bastard]], and rigs the game so Jonouchi can't possibly win. Yugi helps out by {{Mind Rap|e}}ing the host, allowing Jonouchi to win the money. Of course, [[spoiler: the check ends up being no good anyways]].

** In "The Bear and the Maiden Fair", Theon is teased with the offer of a threesome with two prostitutes, only for his tormentor to cut off the most prized part of his body. Indeed, this is one of Ramsay's favorite torture techniques and he proves it an excellent form of MindRape.

** In Season 3, the Tyrells betroth Sansa to Loras, who despite IncompatibleOrientation, would definitely be ''much'' kinder to her than the Lannisters. She'd eventually become the Lady of Highgarden (noted as one of the ''nicest'' places in Westeros) as well, which is a pretty sweet deal until Tywin finds out and squashes her hopes and dreams flat by marrying her to Tyrion. When she shows signs of finally opening up to her husband, Robb and Catelyn are slaughtered at the Red Wedding along with her hopes of eventually being rescued from King's Landing by her family. She, not unreasonably, assumes Tyrion was in on it.
** In Season 4, Sansa is finally free from King's Landing but because she's wrongfully accused for killing Joffrey, she carries a large bounty on her head. Then she finds out that she's essentially under the thumb of Littlefinger and Lysa Arryn. The former is a ManipulativeBastard who caused Joffrey's assassination and her aunt Lysa is a willing dupe and insane to boot.
** This happens to Sansa ''again'' in Season 5. Despite all of the misfortune and psychological abuse she suffered, the one thing Sansa had managed to avoid (despite encountering a string of wannabe perpetrators) up to that point was getting raped. She runs out of her luck during her wedding night with Ramsay.
