* The ''VideoGame/PhantasyStar'' tetralogy does not pull its [[PlayerPunch punches]]. The first game, having less story than later games, averts this (though it starts off with Alis' brother being murdered to get the game going, that's the only permanent death of a good guy). But after that, the gloves are off.
** ''[[PhantasyStarII II]]'''s first major quest ends with the DamselInDistress being killed by her own father (who [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone commits suicide immediately afterward]]) to show you how bad the CrapsaccharineWorld is getting. It also has a [[DecoyProtagonist Decoy Deuteragonist]] who is killed with the ClimaxBoss at the midpoint of the game, and [[spoiler: ends with a BolivianArmyEnding]].
** ''PhantasyStarIII'' is a generational game and is often murderous towards the prior generation's heroes. Most notable is the offscreen death of Ayn, a previous player character, in Sean's generation, as Sean escapes from the cyborg massacre of Satellite; an honorable mention goes to Lyle in Ayn's game, as he dies from injuries suffered in battle after his last flight.
** ''PhantasyStarIV'' is famed for Alys' unusually shocking and well-orchestrated death scene; she dies slowly in bed from magical poisoning, despite everything the heroes do to save her.

* ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' is pretty much this! The first three chapters bring in every character with a major role. [[spoiler: It started with Emperor Sparda and Durga, then it goes to [[FatBastard Wyzen,]] [[EvilOldFolks Kalrow,]] [[BloodKnight Augus,]] [[MoralityPet the girl,]] [[TheDragon Sergei,]] [[BigBad Deus,]] [[EldritchAbomination Vlitra]] and in the true episode 18, [[BlondesAreEvil Olga.]] In the DLC, it finally hits hard with [[TheLancer Yasha,]] [[BiggerBad Chakravartin,]] finally ending in [[PapaWolf Asura.]] The only character alive after all of this is Mithra!]]

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Sickness}}'', a reader may begin to realize this upon the death of Sara, if she indeed dies in your route. If Suoh gets killed, you'll definitely realize this.

to:

* Some of Telltale's episodic Adventure game games are known for applying this trope.

* ''RoseGunsDays'' has it the usual way in the first 2 Seasons, with only nameless mooks dying (but they are seldom explicitly stated as dead) and [[spoiler:Wang Yuanhong]] implied to breath his last breath off-screen. Then at the very end of Season 3 [[spoiler:Stella Maiougi]], a fairly important character, [[KilledOffForReal actually dies in very graphic details.]] In the Last Season, named characters suddenly start to drop like flies [[spoiler:starting with Yuuji Maiougi (a ''2 year old kid''), and continuing with Oliver Oribe (who may or may not be 20 years old at that point), Lee Meixue (one of the arc's main characters' girlfriend), James Tomitake, Maurice Monobe, Cyrus Saimura, Richard Maiougi (Stella's brother and Yuuji's uncle), Alan Aramaki (Meixue's boyfriend) and Gabriel Kaburaya.]] To these deaths we might as well add [[spoiler:Keith Kisaragi, who lost his best friend Alan ''and'' his entire new family (the Maiougis) in the span of a single season.]]

* A key mechanic in VideoGame/{{Undertale}}: all characters besides the protagonist, a ghost and two shopkeepers [[GenreSavvy who are aware they can't be battled]] is at some point fought and can be killed in battle. [[spoiler: Killing every possible character nets you either the infamous Genocide Ending or a DownerEnding where the few who escaped your rampage are struggling to survive and hate you more than anything in the world.]]

* ''VideoGame/WayOfTheSamurai4'' has multiple branches in its story. If you play through all of these, you will see every main character die at least once. Not even the player character is immune to this.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' takes the cake and runs with it. Asides from death through gameplay, many characters will die in the story depending on the route and player choice may spare them. Note that some of these characters that are killed in story can be from your own army.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' takes the cake and runs it one step further with it.Phoenix mode which, asides from the Avatar of the game, characters who "die" are removed from battle on the turn they were defeated and comes back the next turn. However this is countered by how Fates handles death in the story. Asides from death through gameplay, many characters will die in the story depending on the route and player choice may spare them. Note that some of these characters that are killed in story can be from your own army.
