** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears'', a number of characters can be Killed Off for Real if you screw up. In Rydia's Tale, Calca and Brina will, after glitching due to magic, be scrapped in order to repair the airship, unless you get the Mythril parts. In Edge's tale, All fo the ninja under Edge will die for real if you die during their mission before meeting back up with Edge. Time for some SaveScumming! And in the final chapter, It's possible to lose Golbez forever.

** ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'' managed to shock a ton of people by killing off series mainstay Cortana, by having her finally succumb to rampancy.
*** While the Ur-Didact's apparent demise in the same game was merely a DisneyDeath, he seemingly meets his final end in ''ComicBook/HaloEscalation''. However, WordOfGod confirmed that we haven't seen the last of him quite yet...

* While most of the original characters' deaths in Franchise/KingdomHearts have been {{Disney Death}}s, thanks to the way hearts work in that universe, there have been a few notable exceptions: [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories the Riku Replica]], [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2 Xion]] and [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Eraqus]]. Roxas and Naminé by the end of VideoFame/KingdomHeartsII and Vanitas in [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Birth by Sleep]] might also count, depending on how you view their respective situations. Of the entire lot, though, [[TheObiWan Eraqus]] and [[FanNickname Repliku]] look like they might be the only ones who are almost assuredly going to remain this trope.

* While a number of ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' villains have died, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive President Haltmann]] from ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' is thus far the only one to be unambiguously ''erased entirely'' when Star Dream assimilates him and deletes his mind and soul from its OS.

* After coming BackFromTheDead some 20 times over the course of the ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' series, Dracula finally gets destroyed for good in an untold event prior to the game ''VideoGame/AriaOfSorrow''. He tries to reincarnate, but Soma Cruz (the would-be reincarnation) wants nothing to do with it, and thus Dracula stays dead. People argue about to what level Soma is Dracula, but it's kind of a meaningless argument, as the games following it are all set ''before'' ''Aria''.
** And the event in question hasn't been put into a game yet!
*** [[ContinuityReboot And it won't]].

* In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' and related games, Wrinkly Kong dies between ''Donkey Kong Country 3'' and ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64''. She does remain in the series as a ghost, however.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War'' takes it a step further: During Chapter 5, Cuan and Ethlin, who were previously in your party but are now [=NPCs=], get ambushed by Trabant and both of them are killed. Yes, characters that were once in your army are now dying without your control. At the ending of the same chapter, all of the first generation (with the exceptions of Levin and Tiltyu, although she [[KillTheCutie dies anyway]] in [[TimeSkip the interim]]), which is nearly '''half of the game's cast''' are killed when Alvis betrays Sigurd.

** By the time of ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'', all of the animatronics save Springtrap are dismantled and destroyed, with their remains being used as props around Fazbear's Fright. In that same game, it is also revealed that [[GreaterScopeVillain the murderer]] not only dismantled the first game's animatronics, but he himself met his end after attempting to hide in the dangerous Springtrap suit. Slightly subverted in that it's implied his spirit haunts the animatronic afterwards, but by the end it's implied Springtrap is destroyed in the fire that destroys Fazbear's Fright. [[EasterEgg Maybe]].
