* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'', Gore is the first major character to bite the big one. [[spoiler:Double subverted when he comes BackFromTheDead; he either gives you his knowledge of the Schwarzwelt before passing on for good (Neutral) or is killed in combat with the Protagonist (Law and Chaos), and in neither case does he outlive you or the other alignment representatives.]]

* ''Film/{{Scream 2}}''. The first two characters to die, Phil and Maureen (played by Omar Epps pre-''Series/{{House}}'' and Jada Pinkett, respectively) are both black, and true to [[PostModernism series form]], they ruthlessly lampshade it early on, with Maureen mocking what she sees as a lack of representation for black people in horror. First, Phil is drawn to the wall of a toilet stall through use of barely audible whispers, and gets stabbed through the ear by Ghostface in the neighboring stall. Then, Ghostface kills Maureen in the theater while disguised as Phil.

* In the first PaintballEpisode of ''Series/{{Community}}'', Troy is the first member of the study group to be "killed". This is shockingly unlampshaded.
** {{Inverted}} during the ZombieApocalypse in "Epidemiology", where Abed consciously averts this trope by sacrificing himself for Troy, making the latter not only the last member of the study group to be zombified but end up saving the day before he bites it.

* The first named character to die in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'' is the token black man, Commander Gore, in the first hour of the game. But he later comes back as the MagicalNegro.

* In the suicide mission at the end of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', Jacob Taylor, the only black party member, volunteers for the first task. If you select him for this task, he gets shot in the face with a rocket. Avertable, if the player is GenreSavvy, or if you didn't upgrade the Normandy's weapons, shields, and/or armor (if any of the three are not upgraded, someone else dies, first). The player can also send ANYONE into the shaft (except Miranda) and get any number of non-black crew members killed. They can also get the entire team out alive, thus sparing Jacob. So really, if Jacob dies first, one could argue that the player is the one enacting the trope.
