* ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'': In issue 50, Dr. Robotnik is KilledOffForReal, but eventually replaced with Robo-Robotnik/Dr. Eggman, a counterpart of his from an alternate universe with a near-identical backstory and all of the history with and hatred of [[ArchEnemy Sonic]] that the original Robotnik had; having succeeded in defeating the Freedom Fighters in his world, Eggman had [[VictoryIsBoring gotten bored]] with nothing left to conquer or destroy, and after discovering the death of his prime counterpart, made his way to Mobius Prime to "fill the void."

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'' does this with the MirrorUniverse. When the titular ship finds itself in that universe, her counterpart ends up in the Prime 'verse. There, her Terran crew tries to fight the much stronger Prime!Klingons and gets obliterated. By the end of the arc, [[spoiler:a number of named Mirror Universe characters are dead, including Sylvia Tilly (AKA Captain Killy) and Paul Stamets. Mirror!Burnham is presumed dead. Inverted with Phillipa Georgiou, whose Mirror version (the Terran Emperor) is alive, although stuck in the Prime universe]].

* Inverted in ''Series/TheFlash2014'', where Barry learns that his mother is alive and well on Earth 2. Also, [[spoiler:after his father is killed by Zoom]], Barry learns that [[spoiler:the real Jay Garrick (the Flash of Earth 3) is his father's double (his father previously mentioning that his mother's maiden name was Garrick)]]. Also inverted with [[spoiler:Harrison Wells, who has been dead for 15 years on Earth 1 but is still alive on Earth 2]], [[spoiler:Ronnie Raymond, whose Earth 2 double doesn't live past the episode he's introduced in but still outlives Earth 1's Ronnie]], and [[spoiler:Laurel Lance, who's killed by Damien Darhk on Earth 1, but her Earth 2 double is a villainous metahuman, who is captured and imprisoned]]. It's also mentioned on Earth 2's news that [[Series/{{Arrow}} Oliver Queen]] died in the shipwreck, but his father Robert survived and became the Hood.

The Earth 2 counterparts of Cisco, Caitlin, Stein, and Dante (Cisco's brother) are all, eventually, killed by Zoom. [[spoiler:Then again, Earth 1's Dante and Stein eventually buy the farm too.]] For "Harry" Wells, there's also [[spoiler:"H.R." Wells of Earth 19, who makes a HeroicSacrifice in Season 3]].
** The ''Series/CrisisOnEarthX'' crossover reveals that a number of characters from other worlds are dead on [[ThoseWackyNazis Earth-X]]. Sara Lance of that world was executed by her father's order for being bisexual, while Mick Rory died heroically rescuing cops from a burning building (yes, Earth-1!Mick is sickened by the thought of his double dying, while saving "pigs"). By the end of the crossover, [[spoiler:Oliver's and Kara's doubles are dead as well, although they're bad guys, so..]]. Inverted with Leonard Snart, whose Earth-X counterpart is alive and well (despite having a different sexual orientation). Also played straight with Earth-1's Ray Terrill, whose Earth-X double was killed by the New Reichsmen.

** ''FanFic/EquestriaGirlsFriendshipSouls'', a FusionFic with ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has a play on this idea with Sunset telling Princess Twilight that she found out her human counterpart died in a fire years ago raising the question if she got sent to Soul Society or became a Hollow.

* Played with in ''Film/TheOne''. JetLi discovers that a whole pile of his alternates are dead. The twist being that they were all killed by the one remaining counterpart who is now out to kill him as well in order to become [[TitleDrop The One]]. The film ends with an interesting inversion of the trope crossed with ReplacementGoldfish. [[spoiler: The protagonist gets dropped into a universe where his counterpart is dead, but his wife's is still alive.]]
