* 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...

** ''VideoGame/NinjaMastersHaoNinpoCho'' has UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga's ending, in which he manages to go TakingOverTheWorld [[spoiler: for himself and for Haoh, the demon that has possessed him for the last years.]] Likewise, [[spoiler: Kamui]]'s ending has him [[spoiler: killing Nobunaga and, following his RightMakesMight mentality, deciding to take over the nation and use Nobunaga's [[EvilWeapon demonic sword]] to do so.]]

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the ''Conquest'' campaign plays around with this since, on one hand, the Nohr kingdom ''does'' manage to conquer its rival realm, Hoshido, just like King Garon wanted from the very beginning... but on the other hand, Garon's true form is revealed and he's killed immediately afterwards, Hinoka survives and becomes Queen of Hoshido so she and Sakura can start rebuilding her lands, while the Avatar's Nohrian older brother, Xander, inherits the Nohrian throne and succeeds Garon as the ruler of Nohr, so he and the Avatar can ''properly'' begin to change Nohr from within, making it more like "The Anti-Villains Win". [[spoiler: Plus the actual plan of the BiggerBad behind Garon, the Spirit King Anankos (who is thoroughly defeated in the GoldenPath), is to ''destroy both kingdoms'', which logically doesn't happen '''and''', considering how much energy he pumped into corrupting Garon for years (and then on corrupting the FinalBoss, a {{more than mind control}}led Prince Takumi), he's probably been crippled and won't be able to try anything for many years, '''specially''' not in the reign of [[TheGoodKing King Xander]] and [[TheHighQueen Hinoka]].]]
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral'': After the player defeat the last boss in Chapter 5 of Genealogy of the Holy War, Sigurd and his army are escorted to the castle to be met by [[spoiler:the entire army being betrayed by the person who everyone thought of as a friend. Sigurd himself is executed by Lord Alvis and the army scatters to the wind, with the surviving 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 the group 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 the player eventually wins in the end; it just takes nearly two decades before the protagonists can fix everything.

** The closest to this trope ''actually'' taking place in the Fates universe is... [[spoiler: the ''Heirs of Fates'' DLC stages. Anankos has taken several ''Fates'' worlds (some following the ''Birthright'' contonuity, others following the ''Conquest'' one) plus their Deeprealms and destroyed them, with only one member of the Secod Gens surviving ''per world'', and also destroyed [[BigGood Shigure]]'s own ''Revelations'' realm. The overall plot is about the survivors meeting up and stopping Anankos from doing it to the Multiverse.]]
