* ''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.]]

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

** 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.
