** Even more particularly, the Nerds drug Buffy, she has a hallucination that she is in an insane asylum being treated for her delusions that she lives in Sunnydale, she is the Chosen One, she has ThePowerOfFriendship and she fights supernatural monsters. Throughout the episode, we assume that the Sunnydale scenes are real within the context of the Story and the Asylum scenes are hallucinations. Near the end, Buffy is about to kill her "imaginary" friends, but the potion wears off JustInTime. The finale is back in the Asylum. Mad!Buffy has had a relapse. Doctor and Parents sadly leaves her cell. The sad implication is that Buffy really is mad and we have spent 6 years of our life watching insane delusions.

* The series finale of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''. [[spoiler:The mother's been dead the whole time, having died of cancer, and the 9 years worth of stories was just a very convoluted way for Ted to ask his kids if it's okay if he marries Aunt Robin (who, by the way, had divorced Barney a whole ''one'' episode after their wedding that took up ''the entirety'' of the last season).]]

** In ''Earthshock'', Adric attempted to solve three logic codes in order to deactivate an override device which the Cybermen had incorporated into a space freighter which they had hijacked and set on a collision course with Earth. With only two codes solved and time rapidly running out, those on board the freighter prepared to evacuate, but Adric ran back on board at the last second to continue working on the third code. However, just as he had solved the code and was starting to key it in, a lone Cyberman destroyed the computer, leaving Adric powerless to stop the collision; he died in the resulting explosion. To make matters worse, the freighter was ''meant'' to collide with Earth; it was the "meteorite" which wiped out the dinosaurs, but Adric wasn't to know that.

** This goes back even to [[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E7Logopolis "Logopolis"]], his predecessor's final story (and the first in which he appears) where a significant proportion of the ''entire universe'' is destroyed by entropy. Although insignificant on the scale of such an unbelievably cataclysmic event, the region destroyed includes the Traken Union, thereby almost immediately rendering all the events, people (with the sole exception of the Doctor's companion, Nyssa) and struggles in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E6TheKeeperOfTraken The Keeper of Traken]]'' (the previous connected story)]] dramatically null, void and pointless. (The fact that this is only obvious when you [[FridgeLogic stop and consider it]] suggests that this was a side-effect rather than dramatic intent on the part of the writers).

** The episode "Giant of the Skies" is about an ageing male Ornithocheirus traveling halfway across the globe and enduring various hardships in order to reach the mating grounds, only to be driven away by younger males. Eventually, he dies from starvation and exhaustion, having used up all his energy in a futile attempt to attract a female. The corresponding chapter in the accompanying book ends by saying that he did have sons and daughters from previous mating seasons, who would have continued his line. However, the fact that Ornithocheirus eventually became extinct as a species still puts a dampener on this.

** The mother Tyrannosaurus from "Death of a Dynasty". After a nest she built prior to the start of the episode fails, she mates again and lays a fresh clutch of eggs. However, nine out of the twelve eggs she lays fail to hatch and the weakest of the three baby T rexes that do hatch doesn't last long; it is suggested that its siblings turned on it and killed it. Shortly after, the mother is fatally injured by an Ankylosaurus's club-like tail and, the very next day, the meteorite impact which caused the KT Extinction kills her remaining offspring.

** This could pretty much sum up much of the Fifth Doctor's career. He had a tendency to ''not'' save the day.

** The episode "Giant of the Skies" was about an Ornithocheirus traveling halfway across the globe enduring various hardships in order to reach the mating grounds only to have it driven away and eventually dying from starvation and exhaustion, and it never got to mate a single time. This is particularly saddening because even if the Ornithocheirus had died after mating, it would have passed on its genes. Instead, its lineage dies with it.
