* ''Series/{{Mash}}'': When [=McLean=] Stevenson left the series and declared he was never coming back, the writers took advantage by having his character, Col. Henry Blake, [[McLeaned be killed when the airplane]] he was a passenger in -- tragically, Blake was on his way home, having served his time -- is shot down. The moment Blake's death is revealed (in the Season 3 finale) was one of the most pin-dropping moments in television to that time.



* Mr. Hooper of ''Series/SesameStreet'' is a famous example of this in a children's show. This was their way of dealing [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim the death of Mr. Hooper's actor]] WillLee.

* ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' has killed off a number of characters over the years, most jarring being Derek "[=McDreamy=]" Shepherd himself (hit by a truck and then misdiagnosed), but also George O'Malley (hit by a bus), Mark "[=McSteamy=]" Sloan and Meredith's half-sister Lexie (plane crash). Others include Meredith's mom and Richard's first wife.
* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' has two of the main characters ending up dead. Kate is shot in the head by a sniper, and Ziva is killed by a mortar strike off-screen, some time after she leaves NCIS and returns to Israel. There are also Gibbs's former mentor (stabbed by a serial killer) and one of his ex-wives (shot in the head by sniper in a manner deliberately mirroring Kate's death). There were also Ziva's father and Leon's wife (both killed in a drive-by), as well as Jennifer (killed in a shoot-out with a hit squad).

* More of a dark meta-humor, but unlike other once cult franchises ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' properly stays dead after ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' release. One of the reasons it keeps such an iconic status.

** Leonard Snart/Captain Cold performs a HeroicSacrifice near the end of ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' Season 1. He later appears as a hallucination of his friend and partner Mick Rory/Heat Wave and then as a past version of Snart, plucked out from the timeline by Eobard Thawne. After defeating the Legion, though, Mick brings Leo back to the same point in time and wipes his memory of the events, putting him back on his path.
** Ditto for Damien Darhk, who is killed by Oliver in ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' but is a major villain in the second season of ''Legends''. Except this is his version from TheEighties (before he got his powers), recruited by Eobard Thawne as his partner. At the end of Season 2, Sara does the same thing to him as Mick does for Snart, even though it means Darhk is destined to kill her sister.
** Thawne is notable for being completely wiped out from reality ''twice'' (first, by the HeroicSuicide of his ancestor, and then by a [[ClockRoaches Clock Roach]] HumanoidAbomination). And there's no telling if he'll stay dead after the second time.
