* When Creator/{{Toonami}} came back, it came back with a version of TOM 3, 3.5, hosting and no sign of TOM 4. Sometime later, though TOM 4 made a brief appearance, making it clear he and Tom 3/5 were seperate entities, but outside of a mention of a story happening between them, that was it--until ''WesternAnimation/TheIntruderII'' where WesternAnimation/TheIntruder comes back and gloats about killing TOM 4.

Not an example. The trope is not about actual bus crashes.
* Parodied in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/KappaMikey''. In it a new writer is brought on the show and at first seems perfectly fine. But then it's discovered that the writer is infamous in Japan's entertainment industry because in every show he works in he kills off a major character. What humorous is that he always kills whatever character he kills off by having them get hit and killed by a bus, no matter how ridiculous the circumstances.

This is manipulative on many levels. It allows an angry writer to kill a character from beyond the grave, as it were, and after the "real" reason for the actor's departure has faded from public memory -- thus avoiding appearing as mean-spirited as being McLeaned. It allows the writer to do a TonightSomeoneDies without sacrificing a current cast member. It allows him to get the requisite {{ratings}} boost from bringing back departed characters without actually bringing them back, and it triggers a much more convincing ItsPersonal episode as our heroes avenge one of their own.
