* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'': The Decepticons hijack an Autobot shuttle bound for Earth and lay waste to its crew. Ironhide is the one unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of a ''coup de grace'' from Megatron (as if being KilledOffForReal so soon wasn't bad enough). Additionally it [[TheWorfEffect cements Megatron's badass credentials]] when he looks at Ironhide, who is feebly grasping at his leg, sneers a magnificent "Such heroic nonsense!" at him and blows him away.

* In ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator'', L-elf delivers one to [[spoiler Haruto]] in the stinger of the first episode... [[spoiler: only for Haruto to get up and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent steal his body by biting him]], kicking off the plot]].

* In an episode of ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', John does this to Cromartie, just to blow off some steam, apparently, since one bullet from a handgun won't do much to a Terminator.

If it's done to ensure a swift and painless death, see MercyKill. May be used as (part of) a FinishingMove. Contrast FinishHim. Part of the CoupDeGraceCutscene, obviously. Contrast ThwartedCoupDeGrace.

!!'''As a DeathTrope, all Spoilers will be unmarked ahead. Beware.'''

* The finale of ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' has Lee infected and on the brink of death. It's up to you as a player if Clementine shoots him or leaves him to turn.

Added DiffLines:

* Critically-wounded enemies in ''VideoGame/CharlieMurder'' can be finished off by a [[YourHeadAsplode head-asploding]] curb-stomp. Some bosses and mini-bosses ''need'' to be killed this way, or else they will get right back up with some health restored.
