* The ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'' series has a lot of characters, so if a previously minor one starts getting a lot of screentime, that person will either be the next victim or the next victim's killer. (Victims get characterization just before they die, killers get characterization during their trial- so either way, this trope is used to more deeply impact the player's emotions.)

* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' did not pull their punches in the Bilgewater event "Burning Tides". [[spoiler:Gangplank, one of the premiere pirate champions and symbols of Bilgewater, was hyped up to play very important part, receiving a kit upgrade from his outdated one, new voice over and new model. At the end of the event, not only he's killed off, he's also ''removed from the game''.]]

* The ''CallOfDuty Modern Warfare'' series does this at least once in each game. In the first one, it's the just-got-ousted President of the generic Arab Country, whom you get to play as during the moments leading up to his execution. In the second, it's [=SatCom=] 1, who you use to watch Price's plan unfold. When it does, the resultant [[FridgeLogic space-shockwave]] destroys the station you're on, killing you in the process.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' does this with several missions that involve former members of your squad from the second game: they receive some notable focus and then wind up dying by the time it's over. For most, it can be optionally subverted, since you can save them from dying. [[spoilers: The only ones you can't save are Legion, Thane, and one of either Mordin Solus or Urdnot Wrex (since the latter being dead since the first game is a requirement to save the former).]]
