* 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]].

* The ''entirety'' of ''{{Bokurano}}''. You can tell a pilot's the next one to go once he/she gets focused on. Although it was subverted for a little bit. The next chapter after Kana's death is Jun's, so everybody figures he'll die next. Then Yoko makes the contract, something she wasn't supposed to be able to do, and the next few chapters after that are her DayInTheLimelight - [[WhamEpisode then she gets shot in the head.]] After that the focus goes straight back to Jun.
