Story Time! Any stories about succeeding only to fail at the last second?

None of my players have ever not succeeded at doing pretty much exactly what they set out to do, because I was a complete doormat of a DM. Luckily, my only two experiences as a player fit this Story Time nicely.

In an aborted Living Legends campaign, my character was putting up a proper fight against the session's boss, when he was suddenly defeated by the news of a real-life family emergency and subsequently killed off-screen.

In a D&D 4e Modern Halloween one-shot in which I played as myself, I managed to take out a single skeleton minion, and then immediately get knocked out by a large super-zombie. In a fun variant, a swing that would have destroyed a different zombie missed completely, only for a friend's attack to reduce the enemy to chunky salsa, fooling my character into believing he had done it.
