* Also from ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'': The Fall of Netheril saw three of these with one action. Karsus, the most powerful mage of the Netherese Empire, used a powerful spell to 'borrow' the divine power of the Goddess of Magic Mystryl to save Netheril from its slow decline.
** Karsus had initially planned to borrow the power of a lesser god, but at the last second chose Mystryl, [[TooDumbToLive the most powerful]]. He couldn't control that much power and [[OnlyMostlyDead effectively]] killed himself with his own spell.
** Karsus's failure and death destabilized the Weave. The great floating cities of Netheril suddenly no longer had the magic to keep floating, resulting in the [[LiteralMetaphor Fall of Netheril]] and the destruction of the cities by a plan meant to save them.
** Finally Mystryl, after having her power over magic [[EpicFail stolen with magic]], had to make a HeroicSacrifice to prevent the destabilization of the Weave from destroying rest of the world.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', Equius, Kanaya, Eridan and Nepeta are killed in this way. Equius is garroted with his own bow - that is to say, the Heir of Void is left void of air. Additionally, he was shot through the leg with an arrow and strangled with a broken bow - after dedicating himself to being an archer, but always breaking his bows and never firing a shot successfully. Kanaya is shot through the stomach by the wand she made for Eridan; her sign is Virgo and she's left barren. Eridan himself is chainsawed in half by Kanaya after she was revived as a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent rainbow-drinker]], or rather, the magician was sawed in half by his lovely assistant (and the Aquarius sign consists of two separate halves, to increase the irony). Nepeta's fate was been left unknown for some time after being advanced upon by Gamzee - that is to say, [[SchrodingersCat the catgirl existed in a state of possible life or death until it could later be observed]]; additionally, Nepeta was the Rogue of Heart, and had the person she cared about most taken away from her just before her death.

* In Creator/TeamFourStar's ''Let's Play VideoGame/PokemonLeafGreen Nuzlocke'', they had a Fearow they nicknamed Alex. When fighting a random mook in the Fighting Dojo, the mook sent out a Machamp, so they sent Alex out, thinking that because Alex was Flying type, they had a type advantage over the Fighting-type Machamp. Machamp proceeded to use Cross-Chop, which insta-killed Alex. After a moment of stunned silence, they finally realized that Fearow is Flying/NORMAL type, which means that due to Fighting's type-trump over normal, he would take 1x damage from fighting type attacks due to the super-effective attack against normal cancelling out the ineffective attack against flying.

* ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestria'' has Killing Joke, a plant which specializes in this. Either it kills them directly in some ironic way, such as a zebra who said at one point she felt like her stripes were great wounds in her skin, having her stripes becomes massive open wounds when touched by a vine. Or simply setting things up for a third party to cause it, such as turning a Hellhound who was about to kill some ponies, into a pony. Said ponified Hellhound was then killed by the other Hellhounds who thought he was simply one of the ponies they were hunting.

* ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'': Early in ''The Lunar Rebellion'', the rebels create a constant rainstorm over Canterlot in an attempt to flood the city and force its surrender, using up most clouds in the local countryside. This diversion of clouds has the effect of causing a great deal of drought in the surrounding land. At the end of the war, [[spoiler:the royalists, after adding to this a bit with some increased sunshine and draining of the remaining water, turn this against the rebels. A massive fire spell later, the entire rebel army is immolated by the side effects of what was intended to gain them a quick victory.]]

* Peter Bagge's ''ComicBook/ApocalypseNerd'' centers around two men, Perry and Gordo, who avoided getting Nuked by North Korea by camping in the Cascade Mountains. While staying in the cabin owned by Gordo's friend, the owner comes back and holds Perry at gunpoint. Gordo kills him, and it becomes apparent afterwards that the owner was dying of radiation sickness, and Gordo keeps the man's gun for himself. At the end of the story, Gordo goes back to the cabin, now occupied by Perry and his pregnant girlfriend and tries to blackmail her into letting him stay, but she refuses because he too is dying from radiation sickness, likely from the stolen gun he kept in his pants. Just as Gordo's going to shoot himself, Perry kills him first, thinking Gordo tried to attack Midge.
