* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** 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.
** "The Rains of Castamere" for Arya. She is within walking distance of Robb and Catelyn, and her only reward is being witness to the Red Wedding and seeing Grey Wind killed. Discussed earlier when the Hound talks about her habit of checking every five minutes that the castle and army are still there, and her growing fear that something will happen to stop her reuniting with them.
** "The Rains of Castamere" is also one for Edmure Tully. Soon after his ThrowTheDogABone, he spends his wedding night in the dungeons while his family, bannermen, and allies are all slaughtered.
** "The Rains of Castamere" is one for Bran and Rickon as well. They miss a chance to hook up with Jon Snow. And now they're also splitting up.
** Brienne so far has failed to trade Jaime for Sansa. And when she finds Arya, Arya leaves her for Braavos.

* [[Franchise/StarWars Luke, Leia, and Han]] in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', big time. You'd think that after ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', all of their troubles would come to an end? Hell no. Thirty years later, Luke has [[spoiler: become a hermit after an apprentice of his turned to the dark side and killed the next generation of Jedi that Luke was training.]] Said apprentice was [[spoiler: Ben Solo, the son of Han and Leia, whose HeelFaceTurn drove the two apart, with Han and Chewie returning to smuggling, while the knowledge that Leia is Darth Vader's daughter effectively destroys her political career.]] The First Order, a political and military faction partly made up of former Empire operatives and led by Supreme Leader Snoke, is waging war against the Republic and [[spoiler: destroys its capital, Hosnian Prime.]] Finally and most heartbreakingly, Han tries to turn [[spoiler: his son]] back to the light side, and it almost seems as if [[spoiler: Ben]] decides to do so...[[spoiler: until he stabs Han in the chest with his lightsaber and kills him.]] And the cherry on top is that [[spoiler: Ben Solo/]]Kylo Ren is inspired by [[spoiler: his grandfather, but not for being Anakin Skywalker, but rather for being]] Darth Vader. Considering all the Jedi and the Rebellion went through starting from ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' until ''Return of the Jedi'', it seems as if fate is purposely trying to cause hell. Just imagine how the force ghosts of Anakin, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and Yoda must be feeling, watching all of this.

* Stock investors were unaware that Nintendo merely has a roughly ''one-third'' ownership of the Pokemon Company and is otherwise not really involved in the development of ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' which is handled by Niantic, causing a huge spike in their market cap, a good chunk of which dropped away after Nintendo clarified the situation.

* ''Literature/AMurderIsAnnounced'': Charlotte Blacklock suffers from a goitre, which her overbearing father refuses to let her have surgically repaired. When he passes away, it looks like things will finally get better: her sister Letitia takes her to Switzerland to have the procedure, and Letitia's former employer has left a large fortune in trust for her to share with Charlotte, just as soon as his frail and sickly wife dies (and the sisters are quite willing to wait as long as it takes for nature to take its course there). Life is sweet, right? [[spoiler:Wrong. Letitia unexpectedly dies while Belle Goedler is still alive, so Charlotte will get nothing. You can hardly blame her for deciding Charlotte should be the one who's died, and she'll live the rest of her life as Letitia.]]
