* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' has [[spoiler:Misty Fey: She's an incredibly important character in the backstory, then finally appears in the last case of ''Trials and Tribulations'', only to be murdered fifteen minutes later]]. It's not even revealed that it was that person until much later.
* ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'': Dimitri Petrenko returns from ''World at War'' and is revealed to have survived the final mission... until he dies during Kravchenko's Nova 6 test in a horribly brutal fashion.

* [[BigBadWannabe Jul 'Mdama]] from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' was a significant character in ''Literature/HaloGlasslands'', ''Literature/HaloTheThursdayWar'', ''[[VideoGame/Halo4 Spartan Ops]]'', and ''ComicBook/HaloEscalation'', but is killed by Locke in the first mission of ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians''.



* In ''VideoGame/LegendOfDragoon'', Lloyd apparently gets [[DroppedABridgeOnHim a bridge dropped on him]] after the revelation that 'Emperor Diaz' is in fact Zieg and trying to destroy the world. Later, after Zieg is defeated and it turns out that he was possessed by [[BigBad Melbu Frahma]] all along, Lloyd suddenly reappears... only to launch a reckless attack on Melbu and get promptly KilledOffForReal. He does bring you [[EleventhHourSuperpower the Divine Dragoon Spirit and the Dragon Buster]] for the final fight, though.



* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', Big Boss, who was thought to be dead, is revealed to be alive and then promptly dies after providing a truly epic 45 minute {{Infodump}}.

* Issue 8 of ''ComicBook/HaloEscalation'', released in 2014, marked the first appearance of Black Team since their last appearance in 2010's ''ComicBook/HaloBloodLine''. Said appearance happens to be our heroes coming across their dead bodies.



* ''Literature/HaloNewBlood'' featured the Rookie's first appearance in several years. He ends up being killed by Insurrectionists (who are the ''weakest'' of ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''[='s=] bad guy factions). It was particularly shocking because the Rookie was ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST''[='s=] main viewpoint character.



* [[BigBadWannabe Jul 'Mdama]] in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' was a significant character in the Kilo-Five novel trilogy, [[VideoGame/Halo4 Spartan Ops]] and ''ComicBook/HaloEscalation'' but is killed by Locke in the first mission of ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians''.

* Played straight, however, with Leomon when he returns in the latter half of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' and Chuumon (already devoid of his partner Sukamon) and Piximon at the start of the Dark Masters subplot.

** ''ComicBook/SpiderVerse'' isn't holding back on this trope, killing off the Spider-Men from ''ComicBook/{{Marvel 1602}}'', ''ComicBook/SpiderManReign'', ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManUnlimited'' (and given Slott, like many people, holds the opinion of ''Unlimited'' being a sequel to ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'', this means that show's Spidey is dead, too), ''ComicBook/BulletPoints''[[note]][[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] and Peter Parker having swapped roles[[/note]], and ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'', as well as the Mary Jane Spider-Woman from ''ComicBook/{{Exiles}}'' and Twinkies-advertising Spider-Man from ''ComicBook/HowardTheDuck'', the Prince of Arachne from ''Marvel Fairy Tales'', the Betty Brant Spider-Girl, Arachnosaur, and the Spidey from ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom''. The ''Amazing Friends'' version of Iceman and Firestar, the ''Unlimited'' versions of the Knights of Wundagore, as well as [[ComicBook/SpiderGirl Mayday Parker's parents]] are also dead.
