* In ''VideoGame/Persona5'', it's revealed that, before the events of the game, the protagonist tried to stop a drunk man from sexually harassing a woman. During the altercation, the man lost his balance and fell, hitting his head in the process. After the fact, said man turned out to be highly influential politician, who then used his connections to have the protagonist arrested, falsely accused of assault, and put on probation. Ultimately, he was expelled from his school and forced to transfer to not only another schools, but move out of his home.

* Various trailers show the protagonist of ''VideoGame/Persona5'' having been arrested and beaten, presumably at the beginning of the game. As it turns out, the ''reason'' he was arrested is that he picked a fight with a man who was molesting a woman.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' the "reward" for following through with the quest to link the First Flame is a horrible burning existence as the new Cinder. And it's doubtful how "good" this deed really is.
** This sort of thing happens a lot in Dark Souls, especially when it comes to the [=NPCs=].
*** Try to help Siegmeyer along his quest? He'll eventually either die trying to sacrifice himself for you or go hollow because you kept showing him up and made him lose faith in his own abilities as an adventurer. The latter option is particularly tragic, as he's the only hollowed NPC that you don't end up fighting. Instead, his own daughter is the one to kill him, and you encounter her standing over his corpse, having clearly crossed the DespairEventHorizon.
*** Tell Laurentius how you got more powerful pyromancies? He'll go hollow in Blighttown looking for Quelana, forcing you to kill him. Tragically, Quelana is only about ten feet away from him, but she has some kind of {{Glamor}} up that renders her invisible to everyone except those with a particularly strong gift for pyromancy. Apparently Laurentius didn't make the cut.
*** Help Lautrec out of his prison cell? He'll [[spoiler: murder the firekeeper and take her soul]].

* ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'': In Aldia's Keep, you'll come across a terrified man locked in a magical cell. Release him and you'll discover that he is Navlaan, one of the most powerful sorcerers in the land and is either violently insane or possessed by a demon. He'll hunt you down and invade you repeatedly over the rest of the game.
