** The last one is more noticeable for being subverted HypocriticalHumor. Later in the game, she contradicts [[spoiler:Wheatley]] when he tries to pull the same "adopted fatty" insults on Chell, creating an "awwwwwww" moment, but promptly yanks the rug out when she whispers to you, "For the record, you ARE adopted, AndThatsTerrible."

** The Maple Leafs held a 3-2 series lead over the Los Angeles Kings in the 1993 Conference Finals, and were one [[Main/SuddenDeath overtime goal]] away from facing their rivals, the Montreal Canadiens, for the Stanley Cup. During the overtime, after taking a shot on goal, Wayne Gretzky's stick caught Doug Gilmour in the face. Referee Kerry Fraser did not call a high-sticking penalty on Gretzky, drawing the ire of the Leafs and their fans, and Gretzky would not only go on to score the game-winner, but score three goals to clinch the series for the Kings in the deciding game in Toronto. Defenders of Gretzky will note that Gilmour skated into the stick with the blade at ice level, forcing Gretzky to raise it to avoid tripping Gilmour, and the blade clipped his face by accident. Toronto made it back to the Conference Finals in 1994, 1999, and 2002, but never got close to winning those series.

* ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' did this multiple times a season. Every time Lorelai and her parents would be starting to reach some sort of detante or understanding, something would happen to derail it and make them hate each other again.

*** As of 2015, it is the longest pro sports championship drought in all of North America and the third longest in the entire world. And they're in the playoffs again. [[TemptingFate This time it's gonna happen...]]

[[TemptingFate This time it's gonna happen...]]]] To add further insult to injury, they got eliminated on October 21, 2015, the very date ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' humorously predicted that they'd sweep the World Series.

-->'''Blackadder:''' I'm afraid not. The guns have stopped because we are about to attack. Not even our generals are mad enough to shell their own men. They feel it's more sporting to let the Germans do it.

*** Interestingly, though, the trope is ''slightly'' subverted in that [[spoiler: it is fairly clearly indicated that this whole, huge chain of disasters was derived in large part from various ''bad choices'' made by Harry, Susan, etc, it could have been prevented...and better choices in the future could produce better results. The Archangel Uriel seems to be trying very hard, as much as he can with the rules that bind him, to teach Harry to grasp this.]]

* The Cincinnati Bengals got bit hard by this trope. In the 2015 Wild Card Playoff game against their hated rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, The Bengals rally from a 15-0 deficit to take a 16-15 lead. Then intercept the ball on the Steelers next possession, it looked like the Bengals were well on their way to their first postseason win since 1990...only for Bengals halfback Jeremy Hill to ''fumble the ball'' deep within their own territory. The Steelers get the ball back, the Bengals defense commit ''over thirty yards of personal foul penalties'', sending the Steelers Offense into Field Goal Range, where they won ''18-16'', extending the Bengals [[EveryYearTheyFizzleOut long playoff losing streak]]. Beforehand, the Bengals previously started the season 8-0.

Clever writers can cause viewers quite a bit of tension and suspense this way, since we know the good turn can't last and that ''something'' will inevitably come to take it away. Hacks will merely [[FanDisillusionment cause viewers to bash in a new window and]] [[RageQuit abandon a series in frustration]].
