* Up to present day, ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' had never killed a named character among the good guys - of course if we're talking about manga, and not filler/movie material. In the last arc of the manga (announced by the chapter title [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Final Arc - The Thousand year war"]]), after the bad guys just showed up, they killed Sasakibe Chojiro, vice captain of the 1st Division. Well, his name is actually the only thing we really knew about him; but during his funeral it was established that [[InformedAbility he was actually a]] [[HiddenBadass much stronger warrior than he looked like]], and thus the new enemies are to be taken [[TheWorfEffect very seriously]].
** Gets played with much more severity when the current BigBad actually manages to kill old Man Yamamoto. After the reader finally gets to ''see'' the terrifying things Yamamoto can do with his Bankai.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' fans all figured that Ace would be rescued, since 'no one ever dies in One Piece' is a common mantra among the fandom. They were wrong, and shortly afterward, Whitebeard also died.

* OlderThanSteam: ''RomeoAndJuliet'': Though neither side is presented as inherently more evil than the others, the death of the formally comical Mercutio as a result of the Capulet/Montague feud lets everyone know things are about to go straight to hell.

* In ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', [[{{Badass}} Kamina]] spends all his time rampaging around the landscape with his brother [[CowardlyLion Simon]] and the [[TrueCompanions Dai-Gurren Brigade]] before they decide to take a ridiculously huge mobile battleship as their base by stealing it. Owing to Simon freaking out over seeing a kiss between his crush [[ActionGirl Yoko Littner]] and Kamina, his big bro punches some sense into him; opening him up to a fatal strike from Thymilph. He's still so badass that he gets back up and avenges himself, pulling off the series' first [[ThisIsADrill Giga Drill Breaker]], but dies immediately afterward. Cue Simon's HeroicBSOD.

* DC Comics have been using this trope repeatedly in their latest 'Crisis' storylines. The best example might be Dr. Light, who suffered from {{Villain Decay}} to the point that he was a joke among the DC universe, and returned to true villainy in the Identity Crisis storyline.

* The ''StarWars'' ExpandedUniverse novels in the ''NewJediOrder'' series began by killing off Chewbacca in the first novel. They had actually planned to kill ''Luke'' -- but GeorgeLucas nuked this plan.
