Heroes generally don't do this, even to bad guys. It's a pretty awful thing to do to another human being, no matter how evil they are. The exception to that comes when the hero blows up an ancient building or tomb while the villain remains inside. If the bad guy survives the blast and falling debris, he is technically buried alive. Usually this is a SealedEvilInACan situation. Another exception is when the villain has already done the same kind of thing to the hero or one of his friends, in that case it can be a form of KarmicDeath.
