* ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' retroactively did this to a fair number of major characters and factions from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]''. Off the top of my head: The Nerevarine, aka, the PC of ''Morrowind'', vanished during an expedition to Akavir, Caius Cosades apparently fell off the face of Tamriel, Vivec was kidnapped by Daedra, and House Redoran was almost completely wiped by Mehrunes Dagon's invasion.

* The moral based horror puzzle video game {{Catherine}} kills off the main character like this in the action stages if the player is not careful.
** Also happens during one of the endings [[spoiler:where Vincent chases after C-Catherine because he loves her, but due to his lack of chaos (Chaos and Law is basicly the game's karma meter) he get's promptly ran over by a truck, with his friend doing an epic JawDrop in shock.]]

* It's later mentioned in the True Mastermind Edition of ''[[VideoGame/TimeCrisis Time Crisis 5]]'' that Christy Ryan, the DamselInDistress from the second game who had just become Keith's girlfriend, was KilledOffscreen three months before the events of the game when Robert went rogue on the VSSE.

* A quest in ''{{Runescape}}'' brought us a variation on this: "Drop a Pillar on him". How? A quest called Salt in the Wound was released to end the Sea Slug quest series, and in it, you "fight" the big bad Mother Mallum, who's been built up as one of the biggest threats in the world of Runescape. How does she die? You topple over a pillar and crush her. Players were not pleased.

* ''SoldierOfFortune II'': Madeline Taylor. By a [[FacelessGoons faceless]] {{Mook}}, to boot. Hawk suffers a similar fate in the first game, albeit at the hands of the BigBad.
*** IMO, that was a KickTheDog / PlayerPunch moment, while Taylor's death was a blatant "getting rid of the character".

* It's possible to do of this to two of the playable characters in ''HeavyRain''. [[spoiler: Among other ways, FBIAgent Norman Jayden can have his brains blown out by a two-bit thug, and Madison can be tortured to death by a random MadDoctor.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'': In ''Warlords of Draenor'', Admiral Taylor, a recurring Alliance character since ''Cataclysm'', is KilledOffscreen along with his entire garrison in some random questline in Spires of Arak by some no-name villain who is easily dispatched by the PlayerCharacter. The sheer randomness of the death and the lack of any narrative purpose it serves really makes it feel like he was just killed because his Horde counterpart General Nazgrim died in the Siege of Orgrimmar (his death, though still disliked by some, was at least [[AlasPoorVillain suitably epic]]) though WordOfGod has denied this. Even worse, Taylor's ghost can then be recruited as a follower, making it seem even more pointless.
