In Black Hawk Down , a couple of Delta Force snipers go to rescue one of the pilots of one of the downed helicopters, Durant, and after placing him in a nearby building, they go back to defend the chopper, drawing the militia fighters away from Durant by using themselves as bait.
Unfortunately, after the two are killed off, Durant ends up being captured by the Somali militia anyway. The Life of David Gale : The governor had promised if evidence if an innocent person executed ever surfaced he'd call a moratorium on capital punishment. Gale's death is set up as exactly this. However, the governor refuses to call the moratorium, saying the state can't be blamed for a plot by someone else. However, it all backfires. Black Widow even lampshades this later in the movie. Avengers: Infinity War : All the heroes' attempts to stop Thanos from completing the Infinity Gauntlet fail miserably , with half the heroes disintegrating by the end and a few others dead.
Throughout the movie, the Secret Avengers plus Rhodey try to find a way to destroy the Mind Stone without killing Vision. Wakanda is attacked before Shuri can finish detatching Vision's consciousness from the Stone, forcing Wanda to take him and flee into the forest. In the end, Wanda destroys Vision completely to keep Thanos from getting the Mind Stone, only for Thanos to bring him back with the Time Stone and brutally rip the Mind Stone out of him.
Infinity War also rendered the whole plot of Guardians of the Galaxy story moot, where they tried to protect the Power Stone, given just a brief mention as "Thanos attacked Xandar" last week. Ant-Man and the Wasp : A particularly cruel example happens during the credits via Thanos's snap, killing those Ant-Man spent the entire film helping, and leaving him trapped exactly the same as Janet was with no way out. The World of Kanako : In the end, after being beaten, shot, betrayed and kidnapped by the Yakuza and after dealing out a lot of punishment too , Akikazu still cannot find Kanako.
As far as we know, she's dead and buried in the snow but he refuses to accept this and keeps searching for her. The next day, General Ludendorff uses it as ground zero to demonstrate his new gas weapon, killing every civilian Diana and her team saved. Shazam ; after Billy spent over a decade searching for his mother, when they finally reunite he learns that after being lost at the fair and then found by the police his mother decided to leave him with them because she was too overwhelmed with her own issues regarding her parents kicking her out of the house and her husband walking out of the marriage.
Ultimately, she felt Billy would receive better care from the police than she could provide. Billy tearfully walks away to return to his foster home. X-Men Film Series : All the struggling that the Professor Xavier and his X-Men went through to protect mutantkind in the previous movies—especially in X-Men: Days of Future Past —come across as a moot point in Logan , given the fact that most mutants died out anyway, along with several of the X-Men themselves, not due to some big final battle, but thanks to one of Xavier's telepathic seizures and the birth of future mutants has been stopped thanks to crops being genetically modified to suppress the mutant gene.
Pretty much the whole saga, including any future installments, is ultimately for nothing and comes to a horrible end. Police Academy had a subplot which ended this way. The night before the driving test, Hightower comes to Mahoney and tells him that he hasn't driven a car in a long time and Harris told him he'd flunk out if he didn't pass.
So, Mahoney takes him out for a driving lesson in Blanks' car and badly damages it in the process. Hightower ends up passing the test, but Hooks goes after him. At the end of her test, she runs over Blanks' foot. He calls her a racial slur as a result, inciting Hightower to go after him. After Hightower flips over the test car with Blanks in it, Harris expels him. Furthermore, Blanks sees the damage to his car and gets into a fight with Mahoney and Barbara.
Mahoney ends up getting expelled as well after he takes the blame for the fight. Their expulsions get revoked - and they get commendations on top of it - when they show up to help contain the riot that breaks out in the climax and save Harris' life in the process. Army Rangers launch a costly assault on Pointe du Hoc to take out several artillery batteries that could have threatened the main landings. However, after finally making it up the cliff and securing the bunkers, the Rangers find out the guns were never even installed and the entire assault was a waste of time.
This is subverted if you know that, in real life, the Rangers later succeeded in locating and destroying the guns. He confront Yorga on the roof of the manor and, with Cynthia's help, manages to kill him. Looks to be all well Atomic Blonde : As the film proceeds, the characters come to the realization that the entire Cold War was more or less all for nothing, and that their place in the world is rapidly disappearing.
Driven home by how Lorraine's mission ends: she gets at least two total innocents and a whole mess of bad guys killed in the name of helping the U. Deep Blue Sea : Susan made illegal modifications to the sharks, inadvertently making her responsible for all the subsequent deaths when the super-intelligent sharks break out, but she did it to find a cure for degenerative diseases and even uses this as a defense of her actions when given a What the Hell, Hero? However, the cure is later destroyed when she is forced to electrocute one of the sharks as it attacks her along with the substance they extracted from their brains, making those sacrifices ultimately pointless.
Amazingly, the same applies to the sharks. The entire film they've been working on a plan to herd around the humans and flood the facility so they can escape. After two of the sharks are already dead, the last one actually manages to break through the fence , only to be blown up five seconds later by a stick of gunpowder fired into her back.
Robin and Marian : Richard has the Chalus castle burned down to seize a golden statue its lord allegedly has, while killing women and children doing so. Afterward it turns out that the statue was ordinary stone. Part of what motivates Billy Batson in Shazam! After skipping school and getting into an argument with Freddy, another boy living in the same group home, and then getting beaten up as Shazam by Dr. Sivana , one of the other children breaks into government databases and gives Billy his mother's address.
When Billy goes to her apartment, he's overjoyed and wants to give her a hug, but she refuses, explaining that her parents kicked her out when she got pregnant at 17, her husband, likely a kid like she was, left her soon after. When she lost him at the fair, she noticed he was being well tended by the cops that found him, and determined that since she couldn't take care of him, that he would be better off in the foster system. Billy gives her back the compass she won for him at the fair, and walks away alone. In The Hunger Games this is what Katniss feels like after Prim, the sister she went through all of the hell of the Hunger Games for, dies in the final portion of Mockingjay.
The drama is removed from this on all rereadings, when you know that Harry was aided, manipulated and guided through all 3 challenges by the villain, and the villain's entire plan hinged on Harry winning the Tournament. The Distant Epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows shows that Harry Earned His Happy Ending —the world is at peace, he no longer has soul pains , and he has a warm relationship with his son Albus; when Albus worries about his Sorting, Harry assures him that he won't be placed in Slytherin if he doesn't want to be.
Then Harry Potter and the Cursed Child came out, and we find out a new evil is rising, Harry's scar hurts again, his relationship with Albus is and has apparently always been strained, and Albus was put in Slytherin and is miserable there. A disappointing example occurs in the Sword of Truth series, in which the dramatic climax of the relatively good first book turns out to have been all for naught. Umpteen books later, in the final book of the series, we discover that Darken Rahl would have died no matter what box he opened.
So much for The Power of Love. Essentially the entire plot of The First Law turns out to have been this, in the sense that nothing truly changed and the protagonists were only tools.

Kevin Landwaster, a lofty and wise ancient lord, who, after brutally battling Lord Foul for years, fell into despair, eventually resorting to The Ritual of Desecration , that snuffed out almost all life there for centuries. The hope was that the land could regrow while Lord Foul would surely die.
He didn't. Kevin using the ritual was Lord Foul's idea in the first place.

Atreyu is understandably furious about this , until the Empress explains that his quest was important and did have a purpose, even if it wasn't the one stated up front.

Unfortunately, the last runner for the day is the very sick Shindo; he has to push himself to move at all, let alone complete his section, and the team drops back down to 20th place for that first half.
