    A killjoy is a moment that is so unfair or so ridiculously stupid that it seems that the game is mocking you.
    My biggest one is losing the beast form in Skyrim. (I know there is a ring to make it so you have infinite but the quest is so off the beaten path, it is almost forgotten)

    Going through an insanely long sidequest or killing an insanely hard monster and getting a useless item in return

    What I hate is when in fighting games, you're fighting an opponent, and they try just about every trick in the book to make sure you don't win: Auto Recovery, auto dodging, auto blocking, ghosting through attacks, psychic predictions, infinites, etc. Soul Calibur is really bad with this.

    That moment in video games where they make something so ridiculously OP for you to fight you have to lose, like for plot reasons.

    But then win anyway and the story gets screwed over.

    To be specific, in the game Tales of Xillia 2, there was a huge sidequest that you had to pay 20 million dollars for. (Obviously game money). It took me about 20 hours to grind for all of that cash, and gave it in.
    There was a little 3 minute cut scene that was funny and some credits of saying congrats, we thought no-one would do it~!
    After that I turned the PS3 off, and called the game a day. That had to be my best killjoy moment.

    I feel like Lunatic+ in Fire Emblem is just a killjoy itself. TBH, it is way too freaking difficult and I'm not having fun with Fire Emblem atm.

    Also, in Zelda when your Rupees max out. That just sucks.

    Maxing out on the moolah is a killer, especially if you found a huge treasure/got a huge reward. Weak stories also just kill it for me.

    Buying the Magic Armor in LoZ: Twilight Princess, in exchange for going out of your way to spend/donate a ridiculous amount of Rupees on related side quests. It makes Link invincible while he wears it, but drains two Rupees per second until your wallet is empty and becomes useless as soon as you run out of money. While having a drawback to the armor in order to keep it from being OP is fine, the rate that it guzzles your money is a little too quick and isn't really worth the trouble. Getting hurt isn't too big a deal later in the game as it is, since healing items like Yeto's Superb Soup are easy to come by.

    On a Pokémon note, Chatot is a bit of a killjoy character in the Explorers games, with the way he puts down you and your partner when you make mistakes.

    Burnout: Paradise City. Alot of times, you will do burning routes (timed races from A to B that gives you an upgraded version of the car for winning) and get a disappointing car. That, or when it says a new car is entering Paradise City, it ends up being some car you totally despise but have to use anyway.

    (SPOILER AHEAD)

    If you beat all events, you get a golden paint job on all of your cars. If you beat all Time Road Rules, you get platinum paint jobs on all of your cars. Honestly, it seems a bit dumb. Sure, I guess those paint jobs are cool but going through doing that much stuff just for some measly paint job on a car? Not too cool.
