*** And then the trope gets turned around on him several times over. [[spoiler: The Red Stone of Aja, the item that made it possible for him to become the UltimateLifeform, is used to block the attack, triggering a volcanic eruption that sends him flying outside the atmosphere. And when he tries to fly away, he gets delayed by Joseph's severed hand, which he himself severed, long enough for volcanic debris to hit him and ensure he leaves the Earth. And finally, the AdaptiveAbility granted to him by his status as the UltimateLifeform turns him to stone to protect him from the vacuum of space, preventing him from returning, and leaving him [[AndIMustScream forever drifting through space, alone and unable to move.]]]]

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', [[BigBad Ramsay Bolton]] regularly feeds victims to his hunting dogs. But after he is defeated in battle, his ex-wife Sansa puts him inside the kennel where [[TheDogBitesBack dogs tear Ramsay to pieces since he has starved them]]

* In the ''Series/MetalHurlantChronicles'' episode "Three on a Match", three survivors of a destroyed ship try to ride to safety in an EscapePod, only to discover that they were hit by debris from the ship and have a leak. The two {{Space Marine}}s throw the maintenance guy [[ThrownOutTheAirlock out the airlock]] first (they at least gave him a spacesuit), then fight each other, only to have the survivor asphyxiate as the rescue ship comes into sight. Ironically the maintenance guy survives because the thing that hit the EscapePod was an oxygen canister.

* Not so much "death" (yet, at least) but {{Music/Cardiacs}} frontman Tim Smith was permanently disabled after going into cardiac arrest (which was even the band's first name.) At a {{Music/MyBloodyValentine}} concert during their infamous "You Made Me Realise" noise jam, no less.

* Marie Curie, famous for discovering radium, died from overexposure to radioactivity. That isn't exactly ironic though, just a consequence of her spending her entire career studying radioactivity. Thanks in part to fates like hers, people in that line of work nowadays know how to protect themselves.
* In February 1978, Dutch comedian, singer, poet, journalist and songwriter Clinge Doorenbos was surprised to read his own obituary in the local papers. The next day, in that same newspaper, he published a humoristic poem about his own premature death. Only three months later of that same year, he passed away for real!
** This happened to Music/SidVicious too. After a first non-lethal heroin overdose "The Sun" reported he was dead. Sid was photographed reading this particular newspaper. [[http://www.fanpop.com/clubs/sid-vicious/images/20941902/title/sid-vicious-photo]] Eventually he would die from a heroin overdose.



* UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan. Is it any more fitting that a brutal warlord who carved a massive empire from [[HorseArcher warriors who lived and died on the backs of horses]], died after falling off his horse?

* At the end of ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal'', villain Dr. Nefarious ends up stranded on an asteroid drifting through space. When he captures the heroes in the later game ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime'', he has them tied to an asteroid and shot into space. (They do not die, however.)

** "Fur and Loathing": A member of the FurryFandom that likes to dress as a mapache, is abandoned in the desert, at night, while wearing his mapache costume and having been forced to crawl like a real animal after being poisoned by another guy. A local farmer mistakes him for a coyote and shoots him.

* In ''Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare'', there is one part of the FinalBattle where the heroine, his daughter, stabs the infamous killer in the gut with the clawed glove that is his iconic weapon. This is not what truly kills him (she does ''that'' by stuffing a bomb down his throat), but it's still ironic.
