* Near the end of ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'''s second act, Judy and Nick finally find all the missing mammals; the person responsible for abducting them has been arrested, [[AntiClimax and almost too easily, at that]]; and Judy finally gets the recognition as a police officer that she's always wanted. However, what caused the abducted mammals to turn feral in the first place is still unknown, and Judy's speech during the press conference ends up causing widespread panic across the city and [[PlotMandatedFriendshipFailure breaks up her friendship with Nick]], which drives her to [[TenMinuteRetirement resign from the force temporarily]] until her EurekaMoment kickstarts the final act.

* In ''VideoGame/TheFlameInTheFlood'', you finally make it to the "evacuation site" at Angel Yards, though [[FissionMailed Scout nearly drowns in the process]]. It turns out [[spoiler: A.N.G.E.L. Yard is [[HomeworldEvacuation a space center]], and the only rocket left is long out of commission.]] Scout's only option left is to keep going down river and hope she makes it to "the Kingdom".

* Happened on quite a number of occasions on ''Series/AmericanGothic''. The two most memorable would have to be "Resurrector", when after a morality tale of a radio talk-show host, his seemingly murdered wife, and Buck in one of his most despicable acts of [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bastardry]], the interspersed attempts of Caleb to bring Merlyn's spirit back to him results in [[WellIntentionedExtremist decidedly mixed]] [[LightIsNotGood results]]; and "The Buck Stops Here", where after the sheriff is killed and Caleb becomes a regular little Damien, nearly killing Gail and bringing the whole town, even Selena, under his thrall, we are treated to the last shot of Buck's eyes opening in his grave.

* Happens in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' - it looks like Dent is being set up for a SequelHook, then the other third of the movie happens.
** Or, arguably, even earlier. Joker's in the MCU and Batman can rest easy... then MCU blows sky-high, as does Rachel Dawes.

* ''Film/MortalKombat'' (which set up a [[Film/MortalKombatAnnihilation sordid sequel]]).
** [[BigBad Shang Tsung]] is dead and [[TheHero Liu Kang]] won the tournament, preventing the [[TheLegionsOfHell forces of Outworld from invading the Earth Realm.]] Everyone is about to leave the island and head home when [[TheManBehindTheMan the Emperor, Shao Khan]], appears and announces his plans to invade anyway. Raiden says "I don't think so," and everyone enters an AssKickingPose as the [[SequelHook credits roll.]]

* After Wrestling/LowKi had clearly beat Xavier for the Impact Championship Wrestling Heavyweight Title, perched atop him and ''two'' ladders holding the title belt high, Xavier slipped off and the both of them crashed down, the belt landing on Xavier and the referee, in a particularly jarring instance of incompetence, declared Xavier the winner. When another referee disputed this, it lead to the match being restarted.

* ''VideoGame/AbobosBigAdventure'': In reference to the TropeNamer, Toad appears in a secret area within the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI Zelda]] level, to inform Abobo of this. Unfortunately for him, Abobo is looking for someone else, so he gets a Bullet Bill in the face for his trouble.

* At the end of ''[[VideoGame/{{Shockwave}} Shockwave: Operation Jumpgate]],'' the Omaha has successfully pushed the invading aliens out of the Sol System and back through the eponymous jumpgate. All seems well until the last thirty seconds or so of the ending cutscene: [[spoiler: The Omaha's commander, believing the jumpgate's existence to be too great a risk, decides to disobey her orders and destroy it. The Omaha gets a single shot off before the jumpgate's automated defenses retaliate, blasting the Omaha to hell and back, causing it to fall through the gate itself to parts unknown.]] This is picked up on in ''Shockwave 2.''
* The heroes of ''[[NiNoKuni Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch]]'' believe that they have defeated the BigBad and brought peace to the land, only to learn that they had only taken out TheDragon and that the true [[TheManBehindTheMan Woman Behind The Man]] has moved up her plans for global destruction. In this case the trope is applicable only in-Universe to the characters; cutscenes throughout the game showed TheDragon meeting with the actual BigBad (the eponymous White Witch, whose presence is also essentially given away by the game's title) so players knew that the in-game celebrations were premature. Then the game goes and plays it completely straight at the end: after talking the actual BigBad into a HeelFaceTurn, her "council" -- previously revealed to be a projection of her own mind -- reveals itself to have somehow developed its own independent and malevolent will, leading to the final battle.

* Near the end of ''VideoGame/SplinterCellPandoraTomorrow'', you've disabled seemingly all the [=ND133=] virus bombs and captured BigBad Suhadi Sadono, but the {{Dragon}}, Norman Soth, has escaped with the last "pox box" and is preparing to detonate it at LAX.

* When UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte invaded UsefulNotes/TsaristRussia, he made it all the way to UsefulNotes/{{Moscow}} and seized the city, and expected the war to be over and the Russians to surrender. However neither the Tsar nor most of the city's population and resources were there and the Russians didn't even dream of giving up. Faced with the onset of winter and exhausted troops, Napoleon had no choice to return to France, as continuing the war was out of the question.

* ''VideoGame/SpaceQuest 3'' tricked the player like this when you managed to free the two Guys from Andromeda (the pen name of the game's authors). The game gave you a large chunk of points (used to indicate how many of the puzzles you'd solved) and starts to congratulate you. Then the walls opened up the big, bad, evil guy and his troops are behind them. Your points are docked back off you and the game continues.
