* Tassadar, in the original ''{{Starcraft}}'', dies to save the galaxy from the original Zerg Overmind. It is completely real, as far as video games go: he gives a stirring speech to those who will live on after him, to remember what was done there that day, which is then followed by the cinematic of him effectively blowing himself up via his awesome psionic abilities, and taking the Overmind with him. In sequel games, the death is so complete that the Protoss change their usual greeting of "An'taro Adun," which effectively means "May Adun protect you," to "An'taro Tassadar." If he were brought back, it would destroy half the ''Starcraft'' canon.

* Generally, ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' is a series where NobodyCanDie and every death is a NonLethalKO, most obviously with Bowser who either survives his battles with Mario or occasionally gets revived from them. This "protection" seems to get removed if you're the FinalBoss of an [=RPG=]. [[MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga Cackletta]] is the first Mario villain to outright ''die'' (they even [[DeaderThanDead destroy her ghost]] for good measure). The [[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Shadow Queen]], [[VideoGame/SuperPaperMario Dimentio]], [[DragonAscendant Fawful]], and [[MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam Antasma]] follow, though Fawful managed to last more than one game.

** Then Hamill did more work as the Joker and said that he never detailed his retirement from the Joker character even though he widely pronounced it.

Added DiffLines:

*** Then in the epilogue of ''Legacy of the Void'', it is revealed that Ouros was pretending to be Tassadar's ghost to gain Zeratul's trust. So it turns out Tassadar himself had been killed off for real the whole time after all.

* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' has several cases of this, especially after the time skip and Ogre attacked and absorbed several characters' abilities, with suspicions that he killed them for good. But most characters later were brought back in the latter installments, thereby setting up that the only one Killed Off for Real were Jun Kazama and the original King. Not to worry, they got their successors all right (Asuka and the second King).

*** ''Tekken 6'' reveals that the Armor King who attacked Craig is the brother of the original Armor King; he even used the same outfit and stage name alongside his brother at the same time.
** Kunimitsu was supposedly killed off for real by Yoshimitsu in ''Tekken 2'', although there's no official WordOfGod.
** The [[WordOfGod official statement]] ([[http://www.computerandvideogames.com/226228/interviews/tekken-6-your-questions-answered/ see here]]) is that only King I (killed by Ogre) and Armor King I (dying from [[IncurableCoughOfDeath some]] [[BloodFromTheMouth disease]] he picked up around the time of ''Tekken 2'', later killed in a bar brawl by Marduk pre-''Tekken 4'') kicked the bucket. Jun is [[HesJustHiding apparently just hiding]] (she's [[TheBusCameBack set to return]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieWp4FvXxk8 in the non-canon]] ''Tekken Tag Tournament 2''), as is Kunimitsu (maybe) and the first Kuma is also [[HesJustHiding apparently just hiding]].
** Jun Kazama is confirmed by Word of God to be returning to the canon story in the recently-announced Tekken 7. As is Jin who's fate was unclear following Tekken 6.

* ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' has Albert Wesker, one of many [[BigBad main villains]] in the series. Starting in the first game, Wesker can be killed in certain circumstances and it's actually canon since he reappears in later games alive and well, along with having superhuman reflexes and strength from a virus inside him that activated when he died. Wesker is finally killed off by ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' by taking two rockets to the face while he was inside a volcano. Wesker did have a child named Jake Muller, but Jake doesn't take after his father's nasty traits and is on the side of the good guys.
