Added DiffLines:

* Most of Creator/AnthonyPrice's spy thrillers feature David Audley as the protagonist or a significant supporting character. The prequel ''The Hour of the Donkey'' introduces Nigel Audley, David's father, within the first few pages, demonstrating a family resemblance in attitude and intelligence. He is killed off before he gets a chance to learn about the main plot, and the usual Audley role is played by another character, who is identified as a previously-unnamed mentor David recalls in one of the novels it's a prequel to.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'' appears to focus mainly on the adventures of Hank and Dean throughout the first season. However, they [[spoiler:(or rather, their clones)]] are killed in the first season finale, and the show revolves around [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters a large ensemble cast]] from that point forward.

So you've got your hero. They practically has a giant neon sign over their head that says they're a hero. It might be subtle, but it's fairly obvious you've found the person who'll save the day, get the girl/guy, and live a long and hap -- what the? Did they just get bitten in half by a mutant [[TyrannosaurusRex T. Rex]]?

-->He's the character that has the most to learn over the course of this show and is the one who most needs to grow. [...] I mean, Wander has some flaws. But he's really the guy who's guiding Hater to his future or wherever he's going to end up.

Added DiffLines:

* The first issue of the Peter Milligan / Mike Allred era of ''ComicBook/XForce'' introduced an entirely new cast of characters, with the main [=PoV=] character being the team's leader Zeitgeist. All but two of the team were then violently killed off at the end of the issue, including Zeitgeist, establishing the AnyoneCanDie dynamic that the run would have.
