* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral'': After you defeat the last boss in Chapter 5 of Genealogy of the Holy War, and Sigurd and his army are escorted to your castle to be met by [[spoiler:your entire army being betrayed by the person who you thought was your friend. Sigurd himself is executed by Lord Alvis and your army scatters to the wind with your units living out the rest of the lives in hiding or dying from one cause or another. In the 17 years following the massacre, the various countries that you helped liberate from cruel rulers have become oppressive empires and the citizens are essentially slaves. Chapter 6 begins with Sigurd's son leading a liberation army comprised of children from the men and women who fought in Sigurd's army.]] It's a partial example because you eventually win in the end; it just takes nearly two decades before you can fix everything.

* The start of ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' has Bowser successfully take the Star Rod, imprison the Star Spirits in cards, and then successfully defeat his archenemy Mario despite Peach believing that Bowser would never able to do such a thing. Fortunately, he later gets an opportunity to battle Bowser again, this time after he rescued the Seven Star Spirits.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has some fun with this. Every time you try to go for the Neutral ending, Flowey shows up after the FinalBoss to seize control of the six human souls and ascend to godhood before crashing the game. While the game does continue after that and the player does ultimately beat him, his RippleEffectProofMemory ensures that he will always keep coming back on every playthrough to deny the player the happy ending they want. And killing him at the end of the game to try and stop him for good not only doesn't work (he can Save just like the player can) but encourages Flowey to not even give you the chance to fight him when he steals the souls on subsequent playthroughs, making him win by default until the player can achieve the GoldenEnding. ** The Genocide route has a completely different villain winning, and possibly one of the biggest villainous victories in all of fiction. By completing the Genocide route, the player fulfills the First Child's desire to kill everyone and everything in the game, culminating in the First Child killing the last two surviving characters themselves and then "killing" the player before erasing the entire world and once again crashing the game. The player can go back, only to find that the game is reduced to a black void, and in order to do anything else they player has to [[DealWithTheDevil sell their soul to the First Child]], which taints the rest of the game in such a way that, no matter what the player does, even if they achieve the GoldenEnding, the First Child will ''always'' win in the end. ''FOREVER.'' And not even manually deleting your save file will reverse this [[spoiler: though clearing out the file that got saved to your registry might.]]

* ''VideoGame/StarFox64'': If you do not succeed in defeating Star Wolf in Fichina before the bomb goes off, destroying the Saucerer in Katina, or taking out all six missiles in Sector Z before they reach Great Fox, then you get depressing music and an out-of-place "Mission Complete" (if you succeed with doing what these levels ask, it says "Mission Accomplished" instead) as the level ends. It does alter the path you're allowed to travel, though. In the Fichina stage, Wolf even lampshades this by saying "Looks like WE win today, Star Fox!"

[[spoiler:The third one is the only loss you can't recover from, since it sends Star Fox to the Bolse satellite level, which is the start of the path to the "bad ending" with BigBad Andross surviving with the Final Boss [[ActuallyADoombot being a robotic double;]]]]
