* In ''SuikodenII'', the entire backstory for the CookingDuel minigame sidequest is that Hai Yo is on the run from a cooking syndicate intent on stealing a recipe he received from his deceased fiancée Shun Min. Slight subversion in the fact that we're able to meet Shun Min in ''SuikodenV'' before her Death by Origin Story takes place.

* Boston Brand, aka SelfDemonstrating/Deadman, gained his abilities by, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin getting killed]]. His body is even resurrected by the [[ComicBook/BlackestNight Black Lanterns]] but his attempt to repossess his old shell and return to the ranks of the living fails. Then the [[ComicBook/BrightestDay White Lanterns]] bring him back... [[StatusQuoIsGod for a while, anyway]].

** And earlier, in ''Manga/DragonBall'', there is Son Gohan, the elderly master who adopted young Goku as an infant. The poor fellow ended up being squished by Goku's Oozaru form some time before the series began. Since DeathIsCheap in the Dragon Ball universe, however, he did come back for a day during the Fortuneteller Baba arc as her fifth fighter for a reunion with Goku and his former master, Master Roshi.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' both Goku and Vegeta's home planet was destroyed by Frieza before the series began and losing their families in the process, also making them the last pureblooded Saiyans alive, with the two other survivors Raditz and Nappa being killed many years afterwards. If one counts the movies, then Vegeta's brother Tarble was also among the last pureblooded Saiyans alive, and there were other survivors, namely Turles, Paragas, and Broly, who were eventually defeated.

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Oliver Queen gets his start when the boat he's on goes down with all hands except him, his father, and the captain. When there isn't enough water for them all, his father shoots the captain and then himself. That's just for starters. His origin story spans ''five years'', years filled with the deaths of people he cares about.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'': Many of the original members of Overwatch were presumed dead after it's fall, only for it to later be revealed they survived (Jack Morrison, Gabriel Reyes, and Ana Amari to name a few). However, Gérard Lacroix -husband of the woman who became Widowmaker- has been confirmed to be dead for good, because bringing him back would undermine her tragic backstory.
