* ComicBook/WonderMan, Radioactive Man, and several other obscure villains in ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''.
* Steppenwolf, Desaad, Professor Ivo, and Ocean Master in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
** As well as Darkseid, Silver Banshee, Rampage, the Shade, Parasite, Weather Wizard, and most of the LegionOfDoom members in ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]''. Though Darkseid is a ''maybe'' at best as the characters outright speculate that he's NotQuiteDead.

* In the [[AdaptationDisplacement often forgotten]] original novella of ''Theatre/MadameButterfly'' by John Luther Long, Cho-Cho-San only attempts suicide: her maid Suzuki stops her and they take her little boy and run away before Mrs. Pinkerton can come back to claim him. When David Belasco adapted the story for the stage, he changed the ending to have the heroine go through with her suicide, and of course Puccini followed suit in his opera, as has every subsequent adaptation, [[Theatre/MissSaigon retelling]] and [[Theatre/MButterfly deconstruction.]]

* ''ComicBook/AfterlifeWithArchie'' takes place in a ZombieApocalypse so this is obligatory..
** There are three notable examples that occurred prior to the start of the series: Veronica's mother died some time ago due to illness, Cheryl's puppy Sugarr was murdered by her jealous brother, and Kevin states that his father died in the Gulf War. All three are alive and well in the [[Franchise/ArchieComics main series.]]

The 2013 Broadway stage production makes the prince an orphan raised by a villainous prime minister named Sebastian, whose influence Cinderella helps him learn to break free from.
