DeadlineNews, DeathByAmbulance, DeathByLookingUp, HoistByHisOwnPetard, KarmicDeath, VehicularTurnabout, and the more lethal variations of TurnedAgainstTheirMasters are all {{SubTrope}}s. When this trope is frequently {{invoked|Trope}} by one person, it falls under PoeticSerialKiller. Compare RussianReversal for a humorous play on this.

* Lu Bu, most well known in the ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' series as a serious {{Badass}} with an equally serious case of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder, was most known for two betrayals of father-figure masters, considered especially heinous under the Confucian tenets of loyalty and filial piety. It was only fitting that he would be betrayed twice before his ultimate humiliation and execution--first by his men surrendering their defensive position of Xiapi to Cao Cao's army, then by Liu Bei, who had been expected to put in a word for him to Cao Cao after Lu Bu offered his fearsome talents as a warrior to his captor. Unfortunately for Lu Bu, those words were "Do you remember what happened to Ding Yuan and Dong Zhuo?", [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves which encouraged Cao Cao to just have Lu Bu executed rather than risk being another potential victim of betrayal]].

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', if [[OneHitKill Guardian Force Odin]] appears during the player's last fight with [[TheRival Seifer]] and rushes in to deliver his signature blow, the screen flashes as usual to depict the SingleStrokeBattle--except Odin is revealed to have been OHKO'd himself ''by Seifer''. [[spoiler: Later in the fight, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV Gilgamesh]] appears and uses Odin's discarded sword to OHKO Seifer in return.]]

** [[AxCrazy Devo the Cursed]] ([[DubNameChange named Soul Sacrifice in the English version]]) in ''Stardust Crusaders'' brags about how he's going to bite Polnareff's balls off during his fight with him. Disgusted with how vulgar he is, Polnareff finishes him off in a manner that leaves him a completely mutilated, unrecognizable mess... ''except'' for his crotch.
** [[SerialKiller Yoshikage Kira]] in ''Diamond is Unbreakable'' claims that fate is always on his side. During the final battle, he is [[DeathByAmbulance run over and killed by an ambulance]] that, by chance, was called to help him.

* The page quote from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is between [[TheDragon Nui Harime]] and Professor Isshin Matoi. Nui had come to get Prof. Matoi's prized research and was introduced to the [[{{BFS}} Rending Shears, a giant pair of scissors]] able to cut life fibers. After a short brawl, Nui stabs the old professor with the very scissors he touted as the product of his life's work. However, this is a subversion, as the scissors are actually ''not'' Prof. Matoi's greatest work. He claimed they were so Nui will set her sights on them, thus successfully hiding the Kamui Senketsu, the true product of his life's work.
