* Phase in the ''WhateleyUniverse'' still has both parents, but his mother ''hates'' him now that he has turned into a mutant. It's ''her'' backstory that has this trope. As a child, she and her big sis were kidnapped by two horrific mutants, one of whom generates a fear aura and manifests monsters. The other was worse. The other ''ate the big sis alive in front of the child''. Phase's mother was institutionalized for three years after her rescue. She's ''never'' going to be okay with Phase being a mutant.

* 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.
