** The ''Enterprise''-D herself. Taken out by a century old Bird of Prey that by all rights shouldn't have posed a threat to a ''Galaxy''-class starship.

* ''Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows'' drops the bridge on Irene Adler, unceremoniously during a flashback.
* The young protagonist of ''Film/PayItForward'', infamously.
* The film version of ''SlaughterhouseFive'' has Derby, up to that point Billy Pilgrim's constant friend and companion, summarily executed at the back of the frame while two minor characters (both Germans) are talking in the foreground. It's actually very effective, because ... that's the way it happens in wartime.

* In ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', Captain James T. Kirk dispatches Kalara, the woman who lured the ''Enterprise'' to the nebula to be destroyed by Krall, in this way. Literally. Specifically, he [[LiteralMetaphor drops the bridge of the crashed Starship]] ''[[LiteralMetaphor Enterprise]]'' on top of her. Along with [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill the rest of the wreckage of the saucer.]] Since by this time she's become the film's HateSink, having been directly responsible for the destruction of the ship, the audience is probably pretty happy to see her disappear, crushed under millions of tons of wreckage.

* The Kraken in the ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' movies. It's an incredibly dangerous menace in the second film, and is still around when the second film ends. Did you think the third film will have our protagonists engage the Kraken in an epic final battle? Well, if you were expecting that, you were probably very disappointed when the Kraken only appears in the third film ... as a corpse. It's implied that Cutler Beckett ordered Davy Jones to kill it despite its obvious usefulness to both of them in keeping control of the sea.

** Fans of [[EnsembleDarkhorse James Norrington]] also regarded felt he got this treatment (and possibly Govenor Swann as well). Though at least KeiraKnightly and Jack Davenport got to do some [[LargeHam really enormous acting]] in the process.
** Sometime between ''At World's End'' and ''On Stranger Tides'', the Black Pearl is attacked and sunk by Blackbeard, with Barbossa as the only known survivor. It's not clear whether the rest of the crew is dead or merely trapped in the magic bottle Blackbeard put the Black Pearl in, however, [[HesJustHiding so they could still potentially be alive]].

** After carving a bloody trail through 2 full movies just to get to Bill, Beatrix kills Bill in a ridiculously short fight scene that last just 20 seconds and doesn't involve Bill landing a single blow on her. Every single significant character Beatrix fought before Bill turned out to be a greater challenge then Bill was.

* In ''Film/XXx'', Creator/VinDiesel plays an extreme sports master named Xander Cage who is recruited for his unconventional specialties and skills by a secret government organization. When Vin Diesel dropped out of the sequel, ''Film/XXxStateOfTheUnion'', and was apparently somewhat unprofessional about it, it is [[McLeaned announced early in the film that his character has been killed offscreen]], and a new character, Darius Stone, replaces him. On top of that, Stone is said to be "tougher and nastier" then Cage when xXx's superior is considering his replacement. In the DVD release, this is explained: Simply put, he goes into a building, which promptly blows up. To emphasize the deadness, two things come flying out of the wreckage - [[BodyHorror his charred torso and the portion of his neck with the 'xXx' tattoo on it, complete with ears]]. They must have forgotten their own script, because in the movie, Agent Shavers tells Darius Stone that the last xXx died in some sort of freak snowboarding accident.

* ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' had a strange one when rival rock band Crash and the Boys were unceremoniously killed off by Matthew Pattel (in fact they were the only non-villians killed off) even though they had a larger role in the [[ComicBook/ScottPilgrim comic]].
