* Sharon Novak in the ''LostTapes'' episode ''Monster of Monterey''-- ties herself to the boat when working on deck and going underwater to fix the engine, check. Refuses to investigate an abandoned boat with bloody decks alone, check. Immediatelt tries to call Coast Guard on malfunctioning radio and then has boyfriend call them from shore while she tries to raise her sails and leave the area as soon as possible, check. She only dies because the monster returns before the Coast Guard can arrive and her tether is too long to stop her from being knocked overboard while raising the sails.

* In ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', the Hills visit a Renaissance fair, where the "king" has fairgoers throw tomatoes at Peggy. She tells them that potatoes would be more historically accurate, at which point the fairgoers readily switch their ammo. Not a death per se, but Peggy didn't exactly do herself any favors. [[note]]Also adding to Peggy's well-known status as a KnowNothingKnowItAll, there were no potatoes in Renaissance Europe[[/note]]

** After running away from the Land Cruiser prior to the Tyrannosaur attack (itself a pretty GenreSavvy move, even if not a particularly admirable one), Ed Regis finds himself alone in the woods. He hears Lex and briefly considers finding her and rejoining the other people, but decides all the noise Lex is making will attract the Tyrannosaurus, so he walks in the opposite direction - only to get eaten by the juvenile T-rex that had escaped earlier.
