* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': There's a story where the corrupt Judges of post-apocalyptic Las Vegas strike a deal with Judge Death (an undead OmnicidalManiac) to participate in several boxing matches in exchange for weapons of mass destruction so he can wipe out humanity. Predictably, every fight only lasts several seconds and ends with a {{Gorn}}y death in the ring.

* The book ''Flash Forward'', upon which [[FlashForward2009 the TV series]] was very loosely based, invokes this. One character who didn't have a flash forward was told by someone who heard a report about his death that he had died in the ring, and he goes through the rest of his life wondering how that's going to happen, since he's not really into boxing. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the end. Turns out it was the ''ring'' of the particle accelerator at the physics lab where he worked. Someone tried to sabotage it, he went in to try to stop them, and the man had a gun...

* Considering [[ProWrestlingIsReal the setting]], this is surprisingly rare in ''Manga/TigerMask'', and {{Justified}} by the wrestlers going through [[TrainingFromHell extremely harsh training]] well before being even ''considered'' for stepping on the ring, hence [[MadeOfIron being tough enough to survive it]]. That said, it does sometimes happen, and Tiger's Cave [[InvokedTrope does it on purpose to wrestlers who try to rebel (such as the title character) and those who fail to inflict the intended punishment to traitors, the former being killed on the ring or [[DrivenToSuicide suffering such injuries that they kill themselves]] and the latter being forced to a fight against multiple opponents.

* In one of the stories in ''Manga/ConfidentialConfessions'', the LoveInterest has a HeroicBSOD after his opponent collapses following a match. The opponent's father doesn't hold a grudge, but it doesn't make it easier on him.

* In ''WebAnimation/RWBY'', fans knew that the rigged match-up between [[RobotGirl Penny]] and [[MagnetismManipulation Pyrrha]] wouldn't end well, but the question was which girl would die. Ultimately, some manipulation by [[MasterOfIllusion Emerald]] results in Pyrrha using a strong magnetic force to deflect what she ''thinks'' is hundreds of swords (but is really only a few), sending them flying back where the wires connecting them to Penny's body wrap around her and [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe cut her into four pieces]]. Pyrrha, for her part, is [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone horrified]] when she realizes what she's done, but she doesn't get much time to dwell on it, both because all hell breaks loose, and because she herself is killed by Cinder Fall later that night.

* On 25 November 2014, Australian {{Cricket}}er Phillip Hughes was hit in the neck by a bouncer, during a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground, causing a vertebral artery dissection that led to a subarachnoid haemorrhage. The Australian team doctor, Peter Brukner, noted that only 100 such cases had ever been reported, with "only one case reported as a result of a cricket ball". Hughes was taken to St Vincent's Hospital in Sydney, where he underwent surgery, was placed into an induced coma and was in intensive care in a critical condition. He died on 27 November, having never regained consciousness, three days before his 26th birthday.

* ''{{Series/CSI}}'' had an episode where this happened. It turns out the dead guy died because his opponent was using loaded gloves ''and'' someone had gotten ahold of his coach's medkit.

* Happens more than once in ''OneThousandWaysToDie''. The most notorious case is Mariah, a cheating female wrestler who tries to cheat in her match, falls off the ring and gets the bell ''impaled on the back on her head''.

* Happened in an episode of Boondocks with a street fight between Grandad and Stinkmeaner, where the latter dies from his injuries. Grandad avoided jailtime because Huey was smart enough to go get the fight licensed and approved by the state boxing commission first, which waives Grandad of legal consequence for the death.
