** Played with using Hinata during the Pein battle: An entire chapter switches to her POV as Naruto fights Pein, gives a rundown of her history and feelings for Naruto, the she jumps between the pinned Naruto and Pein and ''finally'' confesses her feelings before attacking him. This goes [[CurbStompBattle about as well as you'd expect]]. Only then, the next chapters reveal that Hinata's OnlyMostlyDead, and plays out more drama with the other ninja's trying to find an opening to reach her before she bleeds out. Shortly after they save her life, however, Nagato brings everyone killed in the fight BackFromTheDead, making [[TrollingCreator all of that pointless]].

* ''PandoraHearts'' does this with a ''lot'' of characters, most notably [[HeroicSacrifice Elliot]] [[TomatoInTheMirror Nightray]]. Subverted with Leo, who was impaled in the middle of his fight with Oz, and lives [[HealingFactor thanks to being a Baskerville]].

* ''Anime/Danganronpa3'': [[spoiler:Chisa and Aoi get a lot of focus in the episodes they die. Double-subverted that turns out that Aoi didn't die, but instead Great Gozu, who also got a fair amount of focus in that episode, is revealed to be the one who died.]]

* In ''BlackButler'', Angelina Durless appears to be an important major character, only to be murdered by her own butler (who also happened to be a Shinigami), complete with a half-chapter montage of her story.

* When Team Dai-Gurren is trapped in the space ocean during episode 25 of ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', Kittan gets his time in the limelight. He is featured more than in other episodes and over the course of the episode we find that Kittan has insecurity about not being as good of a leader as Kamina and that he loves Yoko. Yoko also brings our attention to the fact that while "Simon pulled from the top; Kittan pushed from below" reminding us that Kittan was indeed a big part of the rebellion. All of this right before he leaves the ship to perform an epic HeroicSacrifice in order to help Team Dai-Gurren escape the ocean.

* The ''Anime/KantaiCollection'' anime adaptation does this with aplomb to Kisaragi. After brief appearances in the first two episodes, Episode 3 is devoted almost entirely to Kisaragi and her SempaiKouhai dynamic with Mutsuki. The episode piles death flag after death flag onto Kisaragi before finally sinking her with a [[LastBreathBullet Last Breath Bomb]].

* Used ''very'' frequently in ''MobileSuitGundam''. If a minor character is given his/her own episode, chances are they'll die ''very, very'' soon.

* Admiral Sadaako Munetake in ''MartianSuccessorNadesico'' spends most of the series between ButtMonkey and {{Jerkass}}. When he gets his own episode, the effect of both roles crashes on him, and he commits [[SuicideByCop suicide by Jovians]].
