This is the trope in video games where you are supposed to lose. One example is towards the begining of Final fantasy IV, you fight some black knights that WILL kill you. You can postpone the inevitable by using all 10 of your potions, but you still die. The story progresses and now you have no potions. Another example is a fight in Star Ocean 2 where you are supposed to lose to the a Wise man (Berle I think) and if you die the story moves on with your party scattered. However there is a secret story line where if you live for 10 minutes, the big boss kills your enemy then you. This changes the story later where you have 1 less boss to fight at the end of the game.
Hello, Unknown Troper. You'll need to get known to lend a hand here.
