* In ''Literature/ThePiratesCoveredInFur'', the main band of heroes try their hardest to save Diamond City and to stop the main villain. While they do succeed in killing the BigBad, by the end, [[KillEmAll everyone (save for two characters) is dead]], and Diamond City is bombed by the military anyway.

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'': Wash comes into the Valhala valley looking for the Epsilon Unit. Before he even says a word, he just ''shoots Donut and Lopez,'' neither of whom had anything to do with the Epsilon Unit getting stolen. And now, Donut's KilledOffForReal.
** Or at least, he ''was''.
*** Though it still gets worse when you consider everything from the viewpoint of Simmons, Lopez, and Donut: without even a hope of defending themselves against [[TheJuggernaut the Meta]], who'd found the base they were relocated to, they tried to find a way to escape. They couldn't, and when [[BadassNormal Washington]] showed up right before the Meta would have killed them, [[HopeSpot Simmons was sure that they'd be safe.]]

* The final episode of ''ThereWillBeBrawl'' has one with [[spoiler: Link. After revealing that he survived being stabbed by Zelda, he rallies her back to the side of good, only for them both to be killed nigh instantly.]]
* ''{{Gemcraft}}: Episode Zero'' ends with the player grabbing the Gem of Eternity and instantly start turning into the Forsaken, the narration explicitly states that no matter what you do the corruption will eventually take of completely. Worse, it's a prequel and canonically the next person that comes along (that is, the player of the original ''Gemcraft'') kills the Forsaken... and gets possessed.

Added DiffLines:

* "The Grand Heist" episode of Creator/AchievementHunter's ''[[LetsPlay/AchievementHunterGrandTheftAutoSeries Let's Play Grand Theft Auto V]]'' is a particularly cruel one. The team had pulled off an incredible heist with Ray pulling off a HeroicSacrifice to get the rest of the gang airborne in a Titan, with Gavin in the controls. The team is flanked by helicopters, but Gavin's doing his best to keep them in the air, but he over corrects and stalls the plane. [[spoiler:He could have easily corrected this, but by ''sheer dumb luck'', a helicopter gets under him and causes the Titan to explode, killing the rest of them.]]

* A mild version is present in {{Manwhores}}. Even after Kevin gets up the courage to go out to [[WretchedHive Dead Man's Cove]] for the job necessary to save their apartment and bail Randy out of jail, and then confronts/seduces his ex-girlfriend, now the VP of an entire bank chain ("It's been one week!"), Kevin and Greg are still busted for prostitution and sent to jail.

* ''WebVideo/RomeoAndJulieta.'' Unlike the [[RomeoAndJuliet source material]] the deaths of the protagonists fuel no ultimate good or bittersweet outcome whatsoever. No, here they are shown building up a mutual bond ''solely''to be brutally killed. Additionally, the humans responsible suffer no retribution, and it's possible the don't even realize what they've just done, or do and are just bastards to the point of not caring.

* {{Sintel}}. A young girl befriends a baby dragon only to see it snatched away from her by a larger dragon. She quests to find and rescue her friend, searching for what seems like forever before finding the dragon's lair and confronting its owner, [[spoiler:only to find after mortally wounding the dragon that it bears the same scars her dragon suffered as a baby. She had traveled all that way and not only failed to rescue her friend, but she killed him herself.]]
