* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', singer TM Revolution voices two short-lived characters. In SEED, Miguel is a Face Enemy who actually survives his first battle with the protagonist. However, he is promptly killed in the very next battle. This was telegraphed by the fact that he wasn't in the OP, though. However, in the sequel, its more played like a running gag, despite the depth of the character. ** According to urban legend, NamiTamaki, who sang the last two opening themes of ''SEED'' and the first of ''Destiny'' was offered a similar character, but turned down the offer. That character, Shiho Hannenfuss, became an EnsembleDarkHorse, with many suggesting that Tamaki's passing on the role saved Shiho from suffering the same fate as TMR's characters.

* Detective Terry Crowley in ''TheShield'' seems to be set up as one of the main characters of the series in the pilot episode when he's assigned to the Strike Team as a mole with the intention of exposing their corrupt activities, and gets more than his fair share of screen time in the process... until the final minute of the episode, where Vic Mackey and Shane Vendrell kill him and frame an also-deceased drug dealer as the killer. Crowley's death isn't brushed aside, though, as it haunts the Strike Team for the rest of the series and the character himself appears in flashback episodes.

Almost all of the team gets brutally killed off in the same issue, including aforementioned leader. This effects AnyOneCanDie for the remainder of the book's run and its follow-up ''X-Statix''.

* The ''Series/{{Scream}}'' TV series. Much like how [[Franchise/{{Scream}} the films]] employed this trope (see above), the series does the same with Creator/BellaThorne's character, killing her off in the pilot episode and having her death drive the plot.
