* Kamina in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' is set as TheProtagonist and is voiced by Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi, whose popularity soared with this role. Except that he was killed very, ''very'' early and '''very''' dramatically less than 10 episodes into the story.

* ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'' managed the casting coup of getting Hong Kong action icon Creator/MichelleYeoh to play the ship's captain. Given Yeoh's level of fame, it was perhaps less surprising than intended when her character was killed off in the first episode. It also didn't help that the show's marketing had effectively spoiled this, gleefully stating it would star an African-American female commanding officer, played by Sonequa Martin-Green, though when the cast of the pilot was announced Martin-Green was listed as the first officer.

* Promos for the sixth season finale of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' teased that one of the main cast would be [[TonightSomeoneDies killed off]]. It was pretty obvious it would be Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax), as months earlier she announced she would be joining the cast of ''Series/{{Becker}}'', which was debuting later in the year.

** Fans expected the same trick to be pulled in the premiere of ''Series/StargateUniverse'' with Lou Diamond Phillips, who didn't seem to have an appropriately large role for a name-actor. However, his character lived, and the one who actually died in the pilot was that guy who played [[JerkJock Shooter McGavin]] in ''HappyGilmore''. Phillips's character does die in a later episode... only for [[ReplacementGoldfish another version]] of him to show up.

* The character Mia Fey is killed off in the second chapter of the first ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' game. Never mind the fact that her little sister is a channeler, making onewonder why they even bothered to have her killed.

* Wheatley from ''Videogame/Portal2'' is crushed by [=GLaDOS=] after accidentally waking her up at the end of Chapter 1. Subverted as he makes an UnexplainedRecovery and ends up being a very vital character throughout the rest of the game.

* Even in videogames, Creator/LiamNeeson can't avoid this trope. In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' he plays the dad of the main character, only to disappear as soon as the tutorial missions are over. When the player finally manages to track him down and he seems to become an active part of the story again, he dies right in front of your eyes. To keep Project Purity out of Enclave hands, he floods the chamber he's in with intense radiation so he can take his enemies with him. Unfortunately ''TheDragon'' Colonel Autumn manages to survive regardless.
