* ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'': Dorothy returning to Kansas ''before'' she can journey down the yellow brick road leaves grim fates to the story's other heroes. The Scarecrow remains tied to a pole in the cornfield, and gets pecked by crows who he fails to scare. The Tin Man becomes rusted so stiff, [[AndIMustScream he can not move or talk]]. The Cowardly Lion never finds self-confidence, and quivers at every sound the forest makes. The Wizard then creates MoodWhiplash as he tries in vain to [[BreakingTheFourthWall cheer up the viewers]].
-->Eh, don't be sad. I didn't really ever give them what they asked for in the first place!
* The VideoGame/{{Slender}} [[Film/TheHungerGames Games]], aside from the Gamemakers part at the end. Not even [[RunningGag Camo-Peeta]] could lighten the mood.
* The ''Film/CasinoRoyale'' video has Film/JamesBond promote the other videos during his torture scene.
* The part in the ''Film/BatmanBegins'' episode where [[spoiler:Rachel's face completely changes due to Warner [[TheOtherDarrin recasting her for the sequel]]]] comes out of nowhere, and even scares Bruce Wayne. The dramatic music accompanying his reaction doesn't help.
** And then there's TheStinger, where Gordon, when he's told that the compound in the water causes hallucinations when ingested, mentions that's why his wife flipped out on spaghetti night. Cue his wife lying on the kitchen floor screaming as [[Series/GameOfThrones Joffrey]] appears in the window sporting a creepy SlasherSmile as the walls turn black for no effing reason as ominous music plays.
