* ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'' has Lord Brevon successfully invade a kingdom, behead its king despite all of the royal guard banding together to try to stop him, and successfully brainwashing his son in order to become his obedient minion. He later succeeds in obtaining the Kingdom Stone. And according to Torque, he's won MANY times before. That being said, the heroes do eventually blow up his ship, his army, and rescue the Kingdom Stone, but Brevon himself still gets away with his life. According to WordOfGod, he's GenreSavvy enough to not return to Avalice and get back to what remains of his conquests.

* In the original ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', Nael Van Darnus shrugs off the loss of the Lunar Transmitter saying it was already too late to stop Dalamud. Even though he was eventually slain by the adventurers that would be remembered as the Warriors of Light, Dalamud was shattered, and Bahamut broke free. Even when called to Eorzea to recontain him The Twelve failed and could do nothing to stop him. Louisoux was forced to warp the denizens of Eorzea years into the future seconds before they would be consumed by Mega-Flare while he himself was forced to stay behind and die.

[[spoiler: Years later, in the final Binding Coil of Bahamut patch of A Realm Reborn, it was revealed that Louisoux didn't in fact die. He absorbed a shit ton of Aether and single handedly took down Bahamut, becoming a new Primal himself in the process.]] Making it slightly less of a lose for the good guys than was originally believed, but still a cataclysmic world reshaping event.

* It really doesn't matter which ending you get in {{Bloodborne}}, because there are no happy endings. [[spoiler: If you get the easiest ending to achieve, you're kicked out of the dream and awaken to a regular Yharnam, with your character forgetting the power of Mergo or the dangers of the hunt which will persist regardless due to the [[EldritchAbomination eldricth terrors of the night.]] If you get the second ending, your character is forever trapped in the dream with the doll (who will take care of you, but you're wheelchair bound for eternity. If you get the hardest to achieve ending, the fate of the world is left up in the air as you become the new surrogate being for the eldritch gods of the world.]]
* This is pretty much the entirety of both the main and DLC endings for BorderlandsThePreSequel. [[spoiler:Winning the main campaign just reminds you that Jack will rise to power, lots of people trying to protect the planet are dead, and he's become an OmnicidalManiac. The DLC is even worse, as the ending is set to sad music showing every CL4P-TP unit being simultaneously destroyed by Jack's kill switch, a switch he activated after claptrap had just helped him recover the H-source and refused to join his evil counterpart because he called you his friend. You see his "friends" (minus Athena and the DLC characters who aren't present) laughing alongside Jack as he puts a bullet in claptrap and then dumps him in a landfill, the only silver lining being he didn't die and Sir Hammerlock located him and repaired him]].

* In ''VideoGame/SonicRiders'', [[spoiler:Dr. Eggman wins the final race and technically beats Sonic. However, the treasure he sought out turns out to be just a carpet, making the victory empty for Eggman.]]

** The plot of ''VideoGame/SonicForces'' revolves around Dr. Eggman successfully conquering the world, and Sonic and his friends have to take back control.
** ''[[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, Creator/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...
