* In ''Fanfic/GameTheoryFanFic'', the TSAB is not able to stop Precia from completing her spell. [[spoiler:Only it turns out that she had found a way to revive Alicia without traveling to Alhazred, and she had already carried it out successfully before the TSAB even got a chance to send their troops in. The entire confrontation on the Garden of Time was just a smokescreen so that Precia could [[FakingTheDead fake her death]]. However, given that her goal was to bring her daughter back to life, her success can actually be considered a good thing.]]

* The ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' movie, much like the comic, has Ozymandias use this trope against Rorschach and Night Owl: "I triggered it thirty-five minutes ago."

* Since ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} II'' features the player trying to chase down Baal and the Dark Wanderer, respectively, Acts II and III both end on this note. Duriel, the Act II boss, taunts you saying:
-->"Looking for Baal?"

* Since ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} II'' ''Diablo'':
** In [[VideoGame/{{Diablo}} the first game]], when you finally confront the Archbishop Lazarus, he informs you that you are too late to save the child -- perhaps redundantly, as the child in question is present and quite visibly dead, having been used as a HumanSacrifice. The realization that the child ''isn't'' the kidnapped Prince Albrecht you're looking for provides a HopeSpot [[spoiler:until eventually you defeat Diablo himself, revealing that he was possessing the Prince to take physical form. Due to a bit of MoreThanMindControl, your character then decides it would be a brilliant idea to contain Diablo's soul in their own body, and jams the [[SoulJar Soulstone]] into their head, eventually becoming the Dark Wanderer and Diablo's FinalBoss incarnation in the sequel]].
** [[VideoGame/DiabloII The second game]]
features the player trying to chase down Baal and the Dark Wanderer, respectively, Acts II and III both end on this note. Duriel, the Act II boss, taunts you saying:
-->"Looking --->"Looking for Baal?"



** Don't forget about the first game, either.
--->'''Archbishop Lazarus:''' Abandon your foolish quest. All that awaits you is the wrath of my Master! YouAreTooLate to save the child. Now you will join him...in Hell!

* The Alabasta arc in ''Manga/OnePiece'' has the initial objective of the Straw Hats and Princess Vivi to stop Crocodile before he instigates the civil war between the royal army and the rebels which he manufactured to take over the kingdom. When that ends up failing, they revert to the goal of reaching the rebel leader (whom Vivi knows) to convince him to stop. However Crocodile was prepared for that too and prevents it with the war going on as planned. After which the two goals now are to stop Crocodile ''and'' find the rebel leader to stop the war from progressing further.



* The end of the ''Film/CountYorga'' movies despite Yorga dying. In the first he claims the protaganists first female friend, Erica, and turns her into a vampire bride. Then hypnotizes Donna and lures her to his mansion. Micheal manages to reach her and kill Yorga. But Erica remains undead and in the end, Donna is revealed to have been turned too who instantly attack Micheal and kills him. The second movie, by the time the heroes have found out what going on Yorga has killed most of their friends and amassed an army of female vampires (many of the girls whom he turns through the movie). In this case though, the last protagaist, Baldwin manages to kill Yorga and prevent him from turning the damsel, Cythnia. But no sooner then Yorga gone that Baldwin is revealed to have turned and bites Cythnia shortly after.

* In ''Webcomic/DraculaRulerOfTheNight'', the hunters have tracked Dracula to Carfax Abby and search for him. To their surprise they come across Mrs. Westenra who was initially out of town but was set to come back home after receiving the telegram about Lucy failing health. They check her over and don't seem to find any bite marks, assuming they got to her in time. Eventually however they're forced to retreat when Dracula and his brides (Lucy now among them) prove too powerful to fight at night. They make their way into a cellar of the building and have to push on the door leading outside as it's blocked by debris while barring the other door to keep the vampires from getting in, though know it won't take long for them to break through. Regardless, Harker assures Mrs. Westenra that they'll protect her.
-->'''Mrs. Westenra''': That's very sweet of you to say dear. ''(Harker turns to smile at her but gasps in horror when he sees she now has pale skin, red eyes, pointy ears and fangs)'' But I'm afraid I've been a tad deceitful. I'm dead, they fed on me as soon as they brought me to the master. I arose as his undead bride hours before you arrived. ''(She smiles sweetly at him while raising her hands in a zombie like manner)'' So sorry, but for what it's worth, Dracula is quite the gentleman. The bite was fairly painless that I hardly had time to scream. And I feel so much better now ''(levitate off the ground)'' ''much better''.

* An arc of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales': Glomgold will lose a diamond mine to Scrooge if Scrooge pays a contract by a deadline. After many (Glomgold-induced) failures to pay, Scrooge finally approaches, money in hand, on the day of payment. Glomgold sits back and lets him come, taunting him by counting down the seconds to the expiration, and only after Scrooge presses the payment into his hand at "Three, two..." does he [[spoiler:show his watch and reveal the deadline was actually a few minutes ago. This being a children's cartoon, of course, Glomgold can't win, and within minutes, quite by accident, the mine's diamonds are emptied onto Scrooge's land.]]

** It happens again in the Lord of Destruction Expansion. You have to stop Baal from getting to the Worldstone or all is lost. First, you fail to stop [[TheQuisling Nihlathak]] from handing over the Relic of the Ancients to Baal so he can bypass the Ancients and get to the Worldstone Keep because he's already handed it over by the time you reach him. Then you battle and defeat Baal, only to learn after defeating him that he's already corrupted the Worldstone, forcing Tyrael to destroy it to keep humanity from being enslaved by Hell (although given the [[RestrainingBolt worldstone's true purpose]], this inadvertently sets up the happiest ending in the series).
