* 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.
** Also, it's heavily implied that Marx, the main villain of ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'', is killed off by crashing into Nova. Then he revives into Marx Soul but then gets really killed off afterwards.

** Kirby defeats Nightmare in ''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure'' during a battle on the moon. Even though [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome we don't see what happened]], it involved half of the moon being blown up so it's probably safe to assume he's dead. It also helps that he's the only villain not to {{canon}}ically reappear or be revived in any form.

* The Flash-based platformer ''You Only Live Once'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. If you die once, it's game over. Try to continue, and you'll just get several cutscenes showing your girlfriend finding your body, calling an ambulance, a news report of your death, etc. Keep reloading the game and it'll just end up showing your grave. You ''can't play again''. (unless you delete two save files from your computer).

* In the world of ''VideoGame/ScrapLand'', there's a machine called "The Great Database", which revives any robot that is killed as long as their matrix is listed in it. The plot revolves around someone killing several high-ranking members of the city of Chimera by killing them when their matrixes have been removed from the database, preventing resurrection.

* 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 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.
