** ''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.

** Subverted in the Series 9 finale, ''Hell Bent''. [[spoiler: Clara, who had been KilledOffForReal two episodes earlier, returned in a storyline that saw the character removed from time an instant before her death by the Doctor in an effort to save her life. As his TragicDream unravels, the episode hints that Clara will just end up dead again by the end. Ultimately, while Clara must still someday meet the fate set out in ''Face the Raven'', until she chooses to die she is free to roam the universe indefinitely as a functional immortal.]]

** Season 6 has had this happen to a couple characters - [[spoiler: Osha and Hodor]] - who sat out Season 5 (due to their storylines having no relevance to that particular season) only to come back for brief appearances in Season 6 before being dispatched.

* In ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', every time Ganon somehow manages to break the [[SealedEvilInACan seal on his can]] or to come BackFromTheDead, he apparently only does so he can receive one additional stab-wound from [[TheHero Link]] and go right back to where he came from (Which is, most times, apparently death).
