*** Dreadwing in "Regeneration" - killed by Megatron after refusing to follow orders to ''not'' execute the guy who zombified his deceased brother Skyquake. Lovely.

** [[BigBad Toffee]] bites it by the end of "The Battle For Mewni", via WaveMotionGun and being crushed. While [[HealingFactor he could regenerate from any injury]] and had previously been NotQuiteDead, what really nails his fate is the fact that Moon's deal with Queen Eclipsa in the past meant th latter would be freed from her crystal prison once Moon's enemy (Toffee) was dead. At the end, said crystal begins to crack by itself.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'':
** While a few of Ludo's minions managed to escape the destruction of his castle at the end of "Storm the Castle", most of them were killed in the blast.
** Lekmet of the Magic High Commision carks it when he uses his life to heal Moon in "Starcrushed". To solidify the fact that he's dead, his body turns to ash.

* In a Aversion of [[JokerImmunity the very trope named after him]], the Joker eventually got this treatment in the Franchise/{{DCAU}}. Yes, having proven himself as much of a survivor as his counterpart in the comics, every bit the "no one" in NoOneCouldSurviveThat, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'' took the big leap and put him down once and for all - killing him twice; first his body was destroyed and buried deep within Arkham Asylum in flashback, then the chip containing a copy of his DNA and memories was burned out, just to make sure he won't be coming back. (In just a bit of a cheat, the event occurs at the far end of the universe-at-large's history, allowing him to show up in stories taking place earlier; ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' took advantage of this.)

** Mental Mike in the Season 12 episode ''A Fistful of Meg.''
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "The Thief of Baghead", over-the-top robot actor Calculon dies when he ingests food colouring (which is deadly to robots) in his enactment of Romeo's death in ''Romeo and Juliet'' to win an acting competition ([[ShootTheShaggyDog he lost]]). His death receives little attention by the cast and Calculon is revived and killed again in "Calculon 2.0" to receive a sendoff episode.

** And before that, the G1 TV special ''Rescue at Midnight Castle'' that kicked off the original show ended with Tirek's defeat via a giant rainbow-colored tornado, much like how Luna was stripped of [[SuperpoweredEvilSide her Nightmare Moon persona]] [[MythologyGag in the second episode of 'Friendship is Magic'']]. Except that Tirek wasn't redeemed by it, but killed outright.

-->'''Narrator:''' -tearfully- And for the first, and final time, the day is saved thanks to Powerpuff Bunny.
* Parodied in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. Moe gets a facelift and becomes handsome, and is awarded a role on a Soap Opera. After reading a new script that says he dies, he retaliates by revealing all of the major plot twists in the show for the next year on air (the show was filmed live, apparently). The director than angrily informs him that his character wasn't being killed off and that that page of the script was a dream sequence.

** Also possibly averted with Lionel Hutz's habit of repeatedly running over Judge Snyder's son. Being repeatedly run over might be enough to kill the Judge's son, but like Mr. Burns in "Who Shot Mr. Burns Part 2", [[UnexplainedRecovery his conditions must have been upgraded to alive at the "better" Springfield General Hospital everytime.]] Because Lionel Hutz, like Troy [=McClure=], was retired when voice actor Creator/PhilHartman was killed off for real by his wife in a murder-suicide, it is not known of Hutz's habit has continued and the Judge's son is always killed, then revived.

** Subverted with Ahsoka in the Season 3 episode, "Altar of Mortis", where she is killed by the Son of Mortis (who was controlling her) after giving him the Dagger of Mortis. Ahsoka however doesn't remain dead unlike most of the other characters that are killed off, as she was brought back to life when Anakin transfers the dying Daughter of Mortis's life into Ahsoka.



** ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' continually killed its cast, despite the fact that Beast Wars characters are a bit hard to kill, as robots they have survived deadly attacks and being blown to bits (in which case they can easily be repaired). Some simply died, in one case to make room for new characters. A surprising number died, were brought back, and died again. Two of them died, were brought back as a fused form of the two, and then died. And two of them died [[ChekhovsGun with the possibility that they might return]], but didn't.

*** And the in the sequel series, Beast Machines, Optimus, Megatron, and Rhinox are killed as well. Leaving the only six characters alive at the end to be Rattrap, Cheetor, Blackarachnia, Waspinator, Nightscream, and Botanica.

*** The finale also killed off Prowl and Starscream. Prowl sacrificed his Spark to save the city, and Starscream's Allspark fragment, the only thing keeping him alive after he was killed by Megatron in "Megatron Rising", was pulled out of his head. To hammer the point home, their bodies turned completely grey, the telltale sign in this series that a Transformer is really dead barring interference from the Allspark itself.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': In [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS3E18TwinSuns "Twin Suns"]], Darth Maul is finally killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine. The official ''Star Wars'' website even put up a ReallyDeadMontage just to confirm to fans that no, he's ''not'' coming back.

* Season three of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' began this with King Sombra, who, in contrast to [[FallenHero Nightmare Moon]], [[MadGod Discord]], and [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Chrysalis]], was ''blown apart'' by the protagonists.
** Although there is possibility that Chrysalis [[DisneyVillainDeath fell to her doom]], but nothing has officially confirmed this (and the comics, which some take as canon, depict her survival via JokerImmunity). Some also take Nightmare Moon to be a manifestation of Luna's bitterness possessing her, and seems to shatter to pieces after Luna is restored, but nothing in the episodes themselves suggests she's anything more than Luna corrupted. Therefore, Sombra is the first main villain to officially be KilledOffForReal.
** In the Season 5 episode The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone, Arimaspi is shown to have fallen into the Abysmal Abyss, and his skull is later seen.
** G1 also had Lavan, who died in similar way to Sombra (although a little less graphically), after his magic beam ricocheted from the princess ponies' magic wands back at him.
** And before that, the G1 TV special ''Rescue at Midnight Castle'' that kicked off the original show ended with Tirek's defeat via a giant rainbow-colored tornado, much like how Luna was stripped of [[SuperpoweredEvilSide her Nightmare Moon persona]] [[MythologyGag in the second episode of the current show]]. Except that Tirek wasn't redeemed by it, but killed outright.
