* Played for laughs ''and'' drama in obscure adventure game ''ShadowOfDestiny'', in which the entire goal of the game is to travel back in time and prevent your own murder; some deaths are dramatic, some are just plain funny. In the C ending in which the player does the bare minimum to win, Eike finally prevents his own murder, lies down on the road to contemplate his own existence, and, after a soulful monologue, ''gets run over by a drunk driver''.

* In ''{{Starcraft}}'', the Zerg cerebrates were stated to have died out in between Brood Wars and Starcraft II by [[WordOfGod Chris Metzen]] due to the death of the [[HiveMind Overmind]]. But that was because most of the cerebrates had merged into that Overmind, including Daggoth.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', Liberty Prime, the DeusExMachina of the main game, is nuked from orbit during the first quest of the ''Broken Steel'' add-on. However, the Sole Survivor can choose to rebuild him/it two games later in ''VideoGame/Fallout4'', if they side with the Brotherhood of Steel.

* In ''MetalGearSolid4'', After coming BackFromTheDead, Liquid Snake is not defeated and killed in a fistfight with Solid Snake but actually by having his arm surgically removed from Ocelot's body and getting replaced with a mechanical prosthetic ''before the game even started.'' Ocelot simply uses a combination of nanomachines and hypnotherapy to make himself think he was Liquid all along.
** Subverted in VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2, where Solid Snake is seemingly killed when the tanker sinks in the prologue, [[AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent causing the perspective to shift to Raiden]]. However, it quickly becomes clear that Snake survived after all.

Added DiffLines:

** Amber Kearnen was a recurring Alliance character in ''Cataclysm'' and ''Mists of Pandaria'', being part of the Alliance FiveManBand in the latter. Come ''Legion'' she's found dead outside the Rogue Order Hall with a knife in her back, though she at least serves as a PlotTriggeringDeath.

** Bill is an unusual case; Valve had trouble getting him back to record dialog for later DLC chapters because he was busy with his day job (radio DJ). A later campaign, "The Sacrifice", shows the original ''[=L4D=]'' characters' last adventure, with one of them having to do a HeroicSacrifice to protect the other three. In the game any character can make the sacrifice, but canonically Bill is the one who does it. And to Valve's credit, unlike many others on this list he at least went out like a hero and a {{Badass}}, facing three Tanks by himself in order to let the others get to safety.
