* Whistler dies at the beginning of ''Film/BladeTrinity'', pretty much for no other reason than to introduce a cool new team of sidekicks for Blade. Especially blatant since GuillermoDelToro went to all the trouble of resurrecting the character in ''Film/{{Blade II}}'' after he died in the [[Film/{{Blade}} first movie]]. Poor Whistler just can't catch a break!

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
