* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': [[BigBad Bill Cipher]] is shown to turn much of the [[TakenForGranite town into stone]] during Weirdmageddon. He is finally killed after Ford tricks him into entering Stan's mind, leaving his body as stone itself.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': [[BigBad Bill Cipher]] is shown to turn much of the [[TakenForGranite town into stone]] during Weirdmageddon. He is finally killed after Ford tricks him into entering Stan's mind, leaving his body as stone itself. It's also worth noting that Stan and Ford tricked him into making a deal. (Ford had the knowledge to stop the forcefield that prevented Bill and his minions from leaving Gravity Falls, so Stan and Ford disguised themselves as each other so that Bill would enter Stan's mind instead.) This is fitting for an entity which tricked people into making [[DealWithTheDevil dangerous deals]] himself. Finally, even though Bill wanted to leave the town, his death resulted in his stone body being trapped in Gravity Falls forever.

** Ned Flanders decides to watch the car race from the top of the stands to avoid flying debris (and the drivers' swearing). Their spot high up helped do Maude in. Well, kinda. Homer 'kills' Maude by picking up a frickin' bobby pin on the floor. This causes the T-shirt cannon to hit Maude, knocking her off the stadium and killing her. He also parked in an ambulance zone. Preventing the first responders from having any chance of reviving her.

* Raven in "FanFic/TheTaintedGrimoire" killed Sir Loin by burning him. Raven's own death came about by burning '''him'''.
* [[BigBad Ludlow]] in "FanFic/RiseOfTheGaleforces". In Chapter 25 he reveals himself to be an OmnicidalManiac who intends to destroy all non-human life. 10 chapters later, [[ExitPursuedByABear he is himself destroyed by non-human life.]]
* In "Fanfic/TheNorthRemembers", the Late Lord Walder Frey is notorious throughout the Seven Kingdoms for being extremely untrustworthy, particularly when he [[TheOathBreaker betrays his liege lord Edmure Tully]] for personal gain at the [[MoralEventHorizon Red Wedding]]. He is then betrayed by House Lannister, the house that had promised him power, when they take away his daughter Roslin, who is married to said liege lord, and execute her because Edmure had allowed Robb Stark's widow to escape with Ser Brynden Tully. He then promptly dies after hearing the news.
* "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.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': While fighting on top of an airship, Roman rants about Ruby's determination to be a hero, furiously telling her that idealism just gets people killed, and she'll die just like all other huntresses because of this lack of survival instinct; she should instead focus on the [[CrapSackWorld practicality of survival]] by any means necessary. As a master of survival, he believes supporting an unstoppable villain is the only way to survive. However, he's so angry and focussed on Ruby that he forgets he's surrounded by people-eating monsters who are attracted to negative emotions, and his survival speech is cut short when he is SwallowedWhole by a Griffon.

* One ''Series/MidsomerMurders'' episode revolves around the death of a stage actor in a production of ''Theatre/{{Amadeus}}''. He's the actor who plays Salieri and dies when he slits his throat open with a razor that's been switched out for the prop he was supposed to use. The irony is that Salieri survives getting his throat slit in the play.

** After three murders, brushing off an oblique death threat with "Nobody is killing anyone!" is more than TemptingFate. For bonus points, irony is delivered by falling liquor cabinet when he goes to pour his (quite sensibly) spooked wife a drink to shut her up.
