* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': The main characters can't trust each other nor anybody else who comes along (it's somewhat justified in that it's a spy series, but multiple characters also spouse the whole "this is not a team, this is my family" mentality and get burned '''hard''' for it). Ever. They get the "WhatTheHellHero" riot act, they learn to trust, they kick villain ass, and then ''something'' happens that makes them lose trust again. Rinse and repeat.

** Illyana Rasputin tends to have one repeating story, in which Illyana struggles and inevitably fails to resist the evil in her soul, leading to her FaceHealTurn and transformation into [[SuperpoweredEvilSide the Darkchilde]] until she's reset to struggling to resist the evil in her soul.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' always has April's father Kirby get into some sort of trouble for whatever current arc the show's on. Through most of the first season he was held hostage by the Kraang, and rescued in the final few episodes. Then season two comes and he gets mutated into a bat monster, but is cured a little past the halfway point. Then in the second season finale he's mutated ''again'' and isn't cured until the end of the third season's first arc. It seems the writers have gotten sick of this, because by season four he isn't even mentioned anymore.

* This plagues the elongated conclusion of the 4th World War arc in ''{{Naruto}}''. At this point, most readers have lost count of how many times during the climactic battle Naruto's allies have come to doubt their usefulness, then overcome their doubt by resolving to do their best regardless, then soon fell prey again to that same doubt; how many times the BigBad has wavered towards doubt in his philosophy, then back to absolute faith in it and trying to make Naruto doubt ''his'' philosophy, and then back again; how many times, conversely, Naruto himself has felt the need to go through a revelation of [[RightMakesMight why his ideals are worth believing in and fighting for]], prompted by him relating to his [[ShipTease maybe-possibly]] LoveInterest [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Hinata]], ActionDad Minato, and RivalTurnedEvil Sasuke each in turn, only for his resolve to soon waver enough that another revelation is in order; and how many reveals of either the good guys' or bad guys' seemingly unbeatable "True Power" there have been, only for that power to be beaten soundly, trumped and superseded, followed by ominous hints of the next Ultimate Power That Will Surely Decide Everything.

* A common complaint with ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' was that the relationship between Keiichi and Belldandy progressed at a snail's pace, largely due to this trope. Their relationship would seem to be moving forward, and then something would put it right back to square one. Whether it be some godly threat to the heavens and Earth, or one of Belldandy's fellow gods deciding to keep Keiichi away from her, it seemed like the universe just didn't want them to be together. The manga began in 1988, and when it ended over twenty-five years later in 2014, the relationship between the two main characters had ''barely'' progressed beyond what wasn't [[SnapBack snapped back]].
