** Despite being a fairly central character and being connected to several plot threads, it's later mentioned that Ymir was killed offscreen for her Titan Power.

** A bit of irony in ''02'''s case: by ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'', nearly all of the Chosen save for Hikari and Takeru are trounced in a fight with Imperialdramon at the start of ''Reunion''. There has been no trace of Daisuke and the group in the movies since.

* ''Yuusha ga Shinda'' starts out in this manner, with the legendary hero dying by falling into a very obvious spiked pit trap (complete with a chunk of pork as bait). Then the villagers bury the body in an unmarked grave and pretend he was never there, just to avoid further trouble. Later, the protagonist (the guy who set up the trap to begin with) plans to defeat the demon lord in the exact same way.

* Speedwagon and Stroheim die in part 2's epilogue from black lung disease and Germany's invasion of Russia respectively, with only off-handed mentions. In Part 5, Narancia is killed off-screen by Diavolo. Later on, Part 6 takes this to the extreme with Pucci using Made in Heaven to drop a bridge on the ''entire universe'', rebooting the series.

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'', after Due killed Regius, she is [[CurbStompBattle immediately]] killed by Zest... ''off-screen''. Not only, she was the only Number to be KilledOffForReal, she even had the least screentime among all twelve Numbers.

* In the movie version of ''Manga/{{Akira}}'', Kaori suddenly meets her end when a mutating Testuo accidentally pulls her in and she's crushed by his insides. Her death in the manga [[SacrificialLion was more plot-relevant]], as she's shot to death by Tetsuo's unnamed liutenant and perishes in Tetsuo's arms.

* PlayedForDrama in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' with the death of Marco. He's killed off-screen without anyone knowing how he died, without the slightest semblance of dignity or glory. This shocks Jean to his core, and his greatest fear becomes dying a non-heroic death and having his bones be thrown and burned in an anonymous pile just like Marco's were. This drives his CharacterDevelopment, as he not only wants to make sure that [[HeroicSacrifice his death, should it come, is warranted]], but he also doesn't want to let down Marco's high opinion of him.

It is later revealed how Marco died, and while it does have a bit more plot significance than it initially lets on, it still stands as an inglorious way to die.

* In ''Literature/JokerGame'', two characters gain prominence in the first two episodes: Lt. Sakuma and a particularly clever and adept-seeming spy, Miyoshi, who appears to be on the way to becoming the former's {{Foil}}. However, [[DecoyProtagonist Sakuma vanishes from the story]] after that, the series reveals itself to be episodic, and the next time Miyoshi is shown, he's been killed while on a mission and doesn't even have any lines ''in his own POV episode.'' He's the only D Agency spy to be killed during the course of the story.
