* In ''VideoGame/{{Turgor}}'' all the Brothers and Sisters you meet can be killed. And that's all the NPC's you ever meet.

** An exception is VideoGame/ResidentEvil4, where only one main protagonist is killed.

** Though in the above cases, there is often {{Foreshadowing}} that they lived and/or NeverFoundTheBody. Also, characters who survive that way might be killed later, like Albert Wesker in VideoGame/ResidentEvil5.

* ''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.

* Say hello and goodbye to [[GodsEaterBurst Eric der Vogelweid]]. He gets eaten by an Ogretail just after introducing himself.

** To recap: Keisuke can be incinerated by Pazuzu and Kaido, Midori can be slaughtered by a group of civilians, Mari can be killed by Kudlak and be found drained off all blood, Haru can commit suicide by cop, Gin can be killed by the Shomonkai, you'll have to kill Yuzu - the {{Tritagonist}} of the game - yourself on any of the Chaos routes (as well as Midori if she's survived at to that point) and in the worst endings of the game (Early Bad Ending and Desperate Escape) ''everyone does''. And this is only the first game, the second game is almost infamous for combining this trope with [[CruelAndUnusualDeath grizzly]] [[UndignifiedDeath visuals]].

* ''ShadowOfTheColossus'' is a good example of this. You basically play out the main character's death at the end of the game, one level after losing your horse over a very high cliff (though, (s)he got better). This overlaps as a twist ending.

* ''Franchise/GodOfWar''. Rule of thumb is that if a character shared a scene with Kratos, they would died horribly. Considering the games are literally about killing the Greek Pantheon, it shouldn't come as a surprise.

* 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.]]

* This trope is present in the campaigns of ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresIII''. The soldiers obviously will die, but also important characters die in the stories (many of them are immortal units, but not even them are safe from death in the stories). The countdown includes [[spoiler:Francisco Delgado and Alain Magnan]] in ''Blood''; [[spoiler:Stuart Black, John Black and Warwick]] in ''Ice''; [[spoiler:Major Cooper and Pierre Beaumont]] in ''Steel''; [[spoiler:Sven Kuechler]] in ''Fire''; [[spoiler:William Holme and George Armstrong Custer]] in ''Shadows''; [[spoiler:Daimyoes Mototada and Ishida (among many others)]] in ''Japan''; [[spoiler:Admiral Jinhai]] in ''China''; and [[spoiler:Colonel Edwardson]] in ''India'', [[spoiler:and one can assume that the Leaders of the Resistance also die, because historically, that war of independence failed]]. That's not counting the characters who died of old age.
