** ''Series/Kamen Rider Gaim'' follows much the same route as ''Blade'': while Kouta does eventually win the war for the Golden Fruit and makes a wish that averts TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, the Helheim Forest is shown continuing to expand into other worlds regardless, meaning countless trillions of other lives will be ruined by it. At least in ''Blade'' the antagonist was ''paused'' in its efforts, and will be as long as the status quo at the end of the show is maintained; in ''Gaim'' the antagonist continues on just as it would have if nobody had done anything, with none of the characters noticing or caring [[OnlyTheLeadsGetAHappyEnding because at least]] ''[[OnlyTheLeadsGetAHappyEnding they]]'' [[OnlyTheLeadsGetAHappyEnding got a happy ending]].

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'': Unusually for the franchise, this is what ultimately happens in ''Series/KamenRiderBlade''. The villain in question is the [[spoiler: Stone of Sealing]] which ultimately 'desires' the [[spoiler: Battle Fight to continue on its natural course. While Kenzaki does prevent the intended end of the world by becoming himself an Undead, it doesn't ultimately do anything to hinder Stone of Sealing as it literally has all the time in the world for the circumstances that required Kenzaki's sacrifice in the first place to occur once again.]]

* ''Series/TwinPeaks'' infamously ended with [[spoiler: Dale Cooper trapped in the Red Room, and BOB in control of his body]]. Also, [[spoiler: Pete Martell and Audrey Horne (in the bank when a bomb goes off), Ben Horne (has his head slammed against the fireplace mantle by Doc Hayward), and Leo (left under a cage full of tarantulas by Windom Earle) are all implied to be either dead or near dead.]]

* ''Series/StargateSG1'': Several episodes ended like this, probably the most shocking example being TheWorfBarrage that happened in the Battle of P3Y-229, where the Ori rape the Milky Way fleet without so much as a scratch to any of their own ships. The ''Prometheus'' was also destroyed in a moment like this, in a bit of {{Foreshadowing}} to the Ori appearing. The ship's crew only got back to Earth safely due to a last-minute beaming down to a friendly nation on the planet where they were then gated back to Earth as the Prometheus was destroyed in orbit while the enemy was forced into a ceasefire.

* ''Series/LukeCage'': Season 1 ends with only the villains (except Diamondback) getting a happy ending: Mariah Dillard manages to walk away from prison after having the only witness that could testify against her killed, gets the main hero arrested, rebuilds her power base with a clean record and starting a relationship with [[TheDragon Shades]]. Dr. Burnstein still has Revas' files and intends to restart his research with a badly-injured Diamondback as his test subject.

* ''Series/ChicagoJustice'': In "Lily's Law" the judge sets aside a jury's verdict finding a woman's abusive ex-boyfriend was guilty of her murder for inciting suicide with his constant harassing behavior. Despite loathing the defendant, she finds that the charge wasn't proven. Since the prosecution already dropped the lesser charges, he gets off scot free.
