** Somewhat related is the plot for ''[[VideoGame/HitmanBloodMoney Blood Money]]'', in which a major part of the plot involves a rival contract agency called "The Franchise", who is killing off all of the agents from 47's agency. Towards the end, [[spoiler: only 47 and his contract informer, Diana, are still alive. They split the remaining money and part their separate ways. However, Diana seems to be a turncoat for the Franchise, and "kills" 47 to fulfill the contract on the guy's head by the Franchise's CorruptCorporateExecutive (he wanted 47's clone DNA as a starting point for his own super-assassin cloning scheme). This turns out to be a ploy by her to weed out the one behind the Agency's liquidation, and she revives 47 just in time to finish the bloke off.]]

* ''Gomorra'' (2008). Two teenage hoodlums have been running out of control in the local Camorra clan's territory, despite warnings from the mob boss to behave themselves or die. They ignore this warning, stealing a cache of weapons hidden by the Camorra. An older mobster points out they'll have trouble with the police if two youngsters are killed publicly, so he approaches them with a deal -- for 10,000 euros they return the weapons and kill a mobster who has betrayed him. The youths follow their target to an isolated location, only to be murdered in an ambush and their bodies carted away by a bulldozer to be disposed of.

** May be done to the Player Character completely by accident. If you keep killing the hired thugs sent after you for stealing or murdering, the Dark Brotherhood may be contracted to kill you. The assassin is spawned somewhere and hunts around until they find you. They may never find you until after you've joined up yourself. Cue being interrupted by a Khajiit assassin while you're on your way to fulfill an assignment. You may even find the contract on you on the dead assassin, signed with your boss's name.
