* In a subversion 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.)

** In the second season SeriesFauxnale, Kid Flash is disintegrated when he absorbs too much energy helping The Flash and Impulse get rid of an energy field that threatened to envelop the Earth. To honor his memory Impulse [[TakingUpTheMantle takes up his mantle]]. To hammer the point home, he gets a hologram in the garden like Jason Todd, Tula and Ted Kord.

** Although dead, Stinkmeaner [[TookALevelInBadass returns]] in Season 2: "Stinkmeaner Strikes Back". Stinkmeaner has been sent to hell after death, but now proves he can seriously fight back- by pummeling his way through every demon who steps up to challenge him. Satan himself is so marveled at Stinkmeaner's badass exposition, he sends him back to Earth to [[ResurrectedForAJob spread ignorance and chaos among the black community]], also giving him the opportunity to seek revenge against the Freeman family. As a ghost, he posesses Tom Dubois and trashes most of his house. After Uncle Ruckus and Riley fail miserably at exorcising Stinkmeaner, Ghostface Killah's spirit shows up and clues Huey in to the solution: put Stinkmeaner at peace by having Ruckus spout off about how he hates black people, a hate Stinkmeaner firmly shares with him. Moments later, he's exorcised and sent right back to hell.
** In yet another Stinkmeaner-related episode, death strikes again, this time nailing Bushido Brown, via [[OffWithHisHead on-screen decapitation]] during his fight in Season 3: Stinkmeaner 3: The Hateocracy". The Colonel apparently palled around with a group of disgruntled elderly, [[{{Jerkass}} nigh-crazy jerkasses]] who formed the Hateocracy, a gang that wreaked havoc within the walls of a nursing home. The members of the gang show up to [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp]] the Freeman family in what looks like a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, so the Freemans hire Bushido as their equally jerkass bodyguard, who actually holds off the Hateocracy- until he catches a [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning disk of doom to the neck]]. The Freeman family's reaction? A group [[PrecisionFStrike "OH, SHIIIIT!"]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' Season 1: "Granddad's Fight." The karmic fate of life-long, Five-Star MagnificentBastard Colonel H. Stinkmeaner, who effectively gets his ass handed to him by Robert Freeman in an ironic CurbStompBattle: Stinkmeaner had beaten up Freeman in an argument over a parking spot, and the entire episode revolves around Huey making him out to be a version of a blind assassin, and Robert training for a rematch. It turns out Stinkmeaner was just a crotchety old man who got lucky. Unfortunately, he's such a temporal {{Jerkass}}, absolutely ''nobody'' realizes this until Robert pulverizes him. The beating is so bad, Stinkmeaner ends up stone-cold dead with a solid punch to the face. Feeling remorseful at his grave, Robert prays to God for forgiveness the end of the episode.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' features several onscreen deaths. The first character to die in the series is Flash Gordon's wife (who may or may not be Dale Arden) whose life force is drained by Ming's Inquisitor as Ming tries to force her to reveal Flash's whereabouts. In her case, however, the trope is zigzagged; though she stays dead, her son, Rick, uses a crystal containing her life essence as the personality base for the Defenders' supercomputer, Dynak-X.

Added DiffLines:

** In the final part, "Stinkmeaner: Begun the Clone War Has" in Season 4, a clone of Stinkmeaner begins picking on Robert and puts him through a HumiliationConga. [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Ed Wuncler Sr.]] then forces Robert to fight him again so he can make money off it, which culminates in Robert delivering a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown and telling Stinkmeaner to leave him alone. He agrees, because he's just a clone with none of Stinkmeaner's memories and barely even knows Robert.


Added DiffLines:

** Due to her voice actress Marcia Wallace's death, WordOfGod is that Edna Krabappel has become this. After Marcia's death Edna was given a few silent cameos up until the end of Season 25 when Nelson and Ned Flanders are seen mourning at her grave.
