* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'': The ending of the Iconian War is a {{downplayed}} example. Technically TheAlliance achieves its objectives and the Iconians don't, but this is only because the Alliance's objective was to avoid conquest or complete destruction and the Iconians voluntarily stopped. The Iconians are still [[KarmaHoudini allowed to simply leave unmolested without suffering any comeuppance at all]] for the billions of people they murdered beginning with [[Film/StarTrek causing the Hobus supernova]], and don't even bother to stop one of their number from trying to continue the war on her own. Player comments included the following:
-->'''[[http://forum.arcgames.com/startrekonline/discussion/comment/12712445/#Comment_12712445 dhefferman:]]''' "The Iconian War" is, as a famous Vulcan once said, "based on a moral inversion". '''[[TheBadGuyWins THE BAD GUYS WON.]]''' The Iconians murdered people until they got what they wanted. The crimes of the wicked, war criminals far more horrifying than any found in real life, go unpunished.

* ''[[VideoGame/TheLongestJourney Dreamfall]]''. TheEmpire hunts down LaResistance to its secret base and wipes everyone out. The heroine gets impaled on a spear and left for dead. The KnightTemplar who's just undergone a HeelFaceTurn gets arrested for treason. All prominent members of LaResistance are seen either unveiled as TheMole or charging into a BolivianArmyEnding. Meanwhile, while the other heroine is busy saving the world via astral projection, a miscellaneous villain takes advantage of her helpless physical state to inject her with a lethal amount of a coma-inducing drug. [[MegaCorp WATI Corp]] unveils the brain-sucking product, which you've spent the entire game trying to destroy, to great public acclaim, and the last shot shows the enormous evil villainous tower surrounded by ominous lightning. The end. Cue ''VideoGame/DreamfallChapters''

* ''[[VideoGame/SonicChronicles Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood]]'': Cliffhanger + ExecutiveMeddling= The Bad Guy Wins. Before you're allowed to think that Sonic and friends are doomed, the game is set up with a cliffhanger, and it's implied that a sequel is on the way to keep Eggman away from a victory. But this was never to be- after the game's release, BioWare was purchased by EA. BioWare's handheld division was split up by EA- of course- and, although a sequel was penned, there is no plans for it to ever enter production. So this is a case of an accidental DownerEnding in a series renowned for its positivity. Way to freaking go, EA...

* ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'' shows the consequences of the villains messing around with the history of ''Anime/DragonBallZ''.

* ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'' shows the consequences of the villains messing around with the history of ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. So naturally, as TheHero, it's your job to [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong fix all this]]. Here are some examples of such paradoxes:



* ''VideoGame/DragonballXenoverse'' presents this as a result of the [[BigBad Time Breakers]] [[MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight meddling with history and changing the outcomes of battles for the worse]]. Two examples, both from [[Manga/DragonBallZ the manga's]] Saiyan Saga, include Raditz wrestling free from Goku, evading Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon so Goku dies alone, then killing Piccolo; and all of Goku's allies dying at the hands of Vegeta and Nappa and their powered-up Saibamen, leaving him alone to fight a losing battle against the two in their Great Ape forms. As TheHero, it's your job to [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong fix all this]].

** And it goes FromBadToWorse from there, as most of the fallen heroes are resurrected as revenants, a civil war breaks out in Outworld (between [[AxCrazy Mileena]] and [[NobleDemon Kotal Kahn]]) and Raiden has to contend an invasion from Shinnok, who was [[TheChessmaster orchestrating of all the events]] of 'VideoGame/MortalKombat9''. Though he is defeated at the end of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', Shinnok [[spoiler: does manage to [[BreakTheCutie break his arch-enemy Raiden]] by twisting him into [[CameBackWrong something as evil]] as himself.

** The backstory of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' gives you this easy question: Who is the canonical winner of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon''? The answer is... [[BigBad Shao]] [[EvilOverlord Kahn]]. [[spoiler:Though Shao Kahn is eventually killed (possibly permanently)]] in the game proper, it comes at a high cost. Earth Realm is in ruins, and most of the heroes are dead. [[spoiler:All according to Shinnok's and Quan Chi's plans. Raiden surviving the entire ordeal was the only thing that didn't fall into their plans.]]
