** Speculation here, it's possible that Claude just went on this mission to get revenge on Catalina. It's hard to know considering [[HeroicMute he never talks in the whole game]].

[[folder: Anime and Manga]]

* The ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' anime does this with both Nagamasa and Oichi. In the first case it's played straight, though [[AlmostDeadGuy Nagamasa does technically last until the next episode]]. Oichi's is the classic "killer gets killed instead" subversion.
* The second episode of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' ends with the SacrificialLamb being murdered in this fashion.
** Later in the series it turns out that while there's still a [[CargoCult corpse]] things [[RedHerringShirt happened]] [[ChekhovsGunman a]] [[SociopathicHero little]] [[AndThisIsFor differently]].
* In ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' by the same studio, we see Shizuo getting shot and lying in a pool of blood just before credits roll. Though being [[MadeOfIron Shizuo]], he ends up just walking away.
** Volume 6 of the series has another example, where Izaya is stabbed by a rival InformationBroker and passes out from blood loss before he can contact anyone he trusts to help him. The paramedics get to him in time, but the fact that he's now stuck in a hospital bed while his name, status and location are broadcasted to anyone who might want to finish him off starts [[http://anni-fiesta.livejournal.com/22439.html driving him a wee bit crazy.]]
* In ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'', Togusa gets shot at the end of an episode and appears to be dead. In the next episode, we find out he survived, but suffered serious injuries.
** In the penultimate episode of the first season, Major Kusanagi's head explodes from sniper fire. Batou responds by screaming into the sky, then the credits roll. However, the Major is a full-body cyborg; a lingering shot of her body informs sharp-eyed viewers that it was just a remote decoy body that had been killed, foreshadowing her return in the final episode.
* ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' , ep. 24: "SCATTER TO THE ENDS OF THE GALAXY!" , Alto! But of course, he is NotQuiteDead...
* ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'', episode 11. Poor, poor Origami Cyclone. He ''barely'' manages to subvert the trope and live.
* In the Phantom Bullet arc of ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', Death Gun has shot Sinnon with a stun bolt, and gets up close to finish her with his [[ICallItVera Death Gun]]. Her eyes go wide, the screen goes black, and a shot rings out. [[SubvertedTrope Come the next episode,]] it turns out that it was [[BigDamnHeroes Kirito shooting Death Gun.]]
* The short "Neon Genesis IMPACTS" from the Anime/JapanAnimatorExpo has its credits play while the sole member that stayed behind in Tokyo-3 is hiding during an [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Angel]] attack. Just as the credits are about to end, it cuts to black while hearing a large amount of rubble falling.

* In the episode [[MeaningfulName Turn Turn Turn]] from Series/AgentsOfSHIELD, Ward murders Agent Hand and her two bodyguards in order to rescue Garrett (aka The Clairvoyant) just as the episode ends. As Garrett had been revealed earlier in the episode, that was a WhamEpisode indeed. (The episode also featured a Hydra ending.)

In its most typical form, the soon-to-be-dead character finds themselves staring down the barrel of a loaded gun in their very last scene. [[GoryDiscretionShot Cut to black, gunshot rings]], credits roll, and [[CliffHanger your audience is forced to stick around for the next episode to see the fallout]]. In deaths that don't involve a bullet to the brain, replace the ringing gunshot with something equally damming -- like the heavy ''* thunk* '' of the character's fresh corpse.

* In chapter 35-1 of ''WereAlive'', CJ and Scratch are engaged in a [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]] vs. knife fight when CJ is distracted and Scratch gets an opening and stabs her. Scratch gloats "I got you. You lose, I win." just before the credits.

** A similar occurrence happens at the end of ''Season 2, Episode 4'' - the party is lead into a MexicanStandoff with Arvo's family, and as tensions rise, Rebecca is revealed to have [[DeathByChildbirth succumbed to exhaustion after delivering her son]] and is slowly reanimating. You are then prompted to either shoot her, or warn Kenny - either way, bullets end up flying, and the screen cuts to black. Miraculously, this trope is revealed to be [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in terms of deaths at the beginning of episode 5 - well, [[AlasPoorVillain at least for Clementine's group.]]
