* 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.]]

* [[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 his son back to the light side, and it almost seems as if 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 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.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': In Chapter 14, Reynir, the cast LittleStowaway and novice mage, manages to come up with a rune able to keep dangerous ghosts away from the tank once painted on the back despite not having slept the previous night. Just as everyone is having dinner and looking forward to finally having a little sleep, the leader of the ghosts sends Reynir and Lalli a telepathic message telling them that the rune won't protect them forever and the he intends to kill everyone around them. And that's after the very battle that caused everyone to have an all-nighter put quite the pyschological toll on Lalli.
