** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Oliver Platt's unnamed character is introduced as being a potential "M" for Xavier's Bond, providing a facility, sponsoring the recruitment of the X-Men, protecting them from the rest of the CIA, and above all he comes across as sympathetic to the mutants. Then, not halfway through the film, [[spoiler: the base is attacked and Azazel drops the guy to his death from high in the sky, and that's the end of Mr. Platt's involvement in the film]].

** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Oliver Platt's unnamed character is introduced as being a potential "M" for Xavier's Bond, providing a facility, sponsoring the recruitment of the X-Men, protecting them from the rest of the CIA, and above all he comes across as sympathetic to the mutants. Long-time X-Men fans familiar with the very early years of the franchise are also left wondering if he's Fred Duncan, a major ally of Xavier and his contact in the US Government during the 1960s, transplanted from the FBI to the CIA for the movie version. Then, not halfway through the film, [[spoiler: the base is attacked and Azazel drops the guy to his death from high in the sky, and that's the end of Mr. Platt's involvement in the film]].

* ''[[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze]]'' strangely combines AnticlimaxBoss and DroppedABridgeOnHim by having Super Shredder drop a dock on himself. Close enough.

* Bill in ''Film/KillBill''
**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.

** Or Rachel. After the character development she gets in this movie, and the awesome scene of her standing up to ''the freaking Joker'', you'd think she'd get a somewhat meaningful death, not tied to a chair and blown up.

* In ''BurnAfterReading'', while sneaking around in the CIA agent's house, Brad Pitt scares the guy who's sleeping with the agent's wife, who quickly shoots him in the head. Of course, this all fits with the Farcial Black Comedy of the movie.

* ''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 [[ScottPilgrim comic]].
