%* Lois Lowry's Newbery winner, ''Literature/NumberTheStars'' (1990). Involves Nazis, and ends with the leader of LaResistance Peter Nielsen dying, although protagonist's Jewish friend survives, as she is evacuated along with other Danish Jews. Also, the protagonist's elder sister died before the events of the book - but she only discovers the truth about how it happened during the course of the story, as she develops a more adult understanding of the realities of the war and occupation.

* ''Film/OldYeller'', though ItWasHisSled.Pretty much everyone who sees ''Film/OldYeller'' these days knows how it's going to end for the title dog.



* ''Literature/StoneFox'', a critically acclaimed children's book about a boy and his dog, Searchlight, entering a sled race to save his ailing grandfather's farm. At the end Searchlight dies during a race when her heart gives out.
%%* Roger, the heroine's best friend, dies in the first book of ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials''. It's especially gut-wrenching because Lyra, the heroine, spent most of the novel trying to find a way to save Roger, and then she ends up causing his death unintentionally (to make things even worse, she leads him right into it, and at the hands of her own father. Bringing him what he needs, indeed.)

%%* This is the favored theory when Team Ico (creators of {{Ico}} and ShadowOfTheColossus) announced "The Last Guardian". To sum up - either the boy will die, or the baby gryphon dies. ''At least'' one of the two will occur.
