* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': "Mortynight Run" has Morty rescuing an alien named Fart from a hit man and trying to take him back to his home. [[spoiler:Right as Fart is about to get home, he reveals to Morty that once he gets there he plans to come back with an army and destroy all carbon-based life forms, and Morty kills him to prevent this, making the whole thing pointless.]]

** To make matters worse, the ending implies the Rick and Morty we spent the episode with are [[AlternateUniverse not even the main protagonists of the series.

* In one ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' segment ("8 Ball Bunny"), Bugs Bunny comes across a penguin. After swearing he would help the penguin get home (after regretting making him cry), he finds out that penguins come from the South Pole ("South Pole?! Ooh, I'm dyin'!"). He tries to help the penguin to the Antarctic, going through hell and high water to do so, only to find out when he finally gets there that this was a domesticated performing penguin who lived in Hoboken ("Hoboken?! Ooh, I'm dyin' again!"), and he just dragged him several thousand miles for nothing. It would be just a regular ShaggyDogStory, except that the usually calm, [[InvincibleHero impossible to beat]] Bugs suffers a mental breakdown because of it.

** Toph Beifong's story ends up being this. After her adventures with the original [[AvatarTheLastAirBender Team Avatar]], she grows up and becomes the police chief for New Republic City, where she created the metal bending squad. She also has two daughters by two different men. Not liking that she was pampered as a child, Toph decides to let her daughters take care of themselves when they reached the same age she did when she ran away from home to fight in the earth bending arena. Both daughters grow up with abandonment issues as a result, but Toph doesn't notice because she is MarriedToTheJob. Lin tries to follow in her mother's footsteps by going into law enforcement too, but becomes cold and antisocial as a result. Suyin ''really'' follows her mother's footsteps by rebelling against her and getting involved with petty crimes, until she is finally caught by her older sister. Toph Beifong, after dedicating her life to cleaning up the streets, had to face the fact that one of her own daughters is now a criminal. She couldn't face it, so she destroyed the evidence against Suyin and sent her away to live with her grandparents. And after years of guilt for the coverup, she resigned as the chief of police while during the prime of her career. She leaves civilization behind and spends the reminder of her elder years wandering the planet by herself.

** Brian's estranged son Dylan gets him script writer job at the show he's starring in, and Brian soon gets fired because he keeps trying to inject this kind of endings and plots into the show. Problem is, this is a ''DisneyChannel'' tween sitcom.

** In the flashback to the first Avatar, Wan, his story ends with him lamenting that despite his best efforts and the changes he'd made, war and misery never really left the planet. Raava, the spirit who fused with Wan to become the Avatar, says that she will be with him through all his lifetimes to accomplish this goal. We're 10,000 years in and this flashback occured during the current avatar's ''mental breakdown''. Not to mention one of Wan's first acts was to seal the spirit portals, something that Korra undos at the end of the season.

** There was also the massively drawn-out prank played on the boys by two amusement park employees to make them think that a whale was sentient, leading them to kidnap the whale and eventually condemn it to death by blasting it to the moon.

** And then [[spoiler: grunkle Stan reactivates the portal and brings back his long lost brother, who is also author of the journals]]. This turn of events not only renders all previous attempts to find the author completely pointless, but also proves, that they wouldn't be able to find him anyway, since [[spoiler: he was in the other dimension and nobody knew, that he disappeared, because his twin took his place]].
