* [[spoiler: Takakko's death]] in the anime version of ''Literature/{{Another}}'' qualifies. Not only was she not an inherently villainous character, not only was death the only way to resolve the situation, but killing her in the way she was ensures there can be no potential reconciliation with Izumi, who spends the rest of the series thinking [[spoiler: her rival and crush]] murdered [[spoiler: her best friend.]]

* ''OneTreeHill'': In the final season, Brooke was the only one of the main group of characters (Haley and Nathan, Clay and Quinn, Brooke and Julian) who wasn't really having any issues, after [[TraumaCongaLine about seven seasons]] of the show beating the hell out of her. Apparently she wasn't allowed one season where none of the problems were hers, however, as just when things were starting to go well for her, her ArchEnemy Xavier Daniels (who [[WouldHitAGirl literally did beat the hell out of her]]) is released from prison and starts following her around, leaving her completely terrified that he would attack her again and unable to do anything about it because no one who could do anything would believe her. [[spoiler: ([[CassandraTruth He did]].)]]

** [[spoiler: Omid's death]] at the start of Season 2 Episode 1. If it wasn't for a random bandit showing up at just the right time, a series of seemingly inconsequential if slightly silly choices by Clementine (one - [[spoiler: leaving her gun on the sink while she went to find her water bottle]] - which the player could have actually avoided if it weren't for it [[ButThouMust being preventable by the game]]), and the bathroom door closing just before [[spoiler: Omid could successfully disarm the bandit]], then it wouldn't have lead to the rest of the events of the first episode.

Whats worse is that [[spoiler: the Bandit likely had no intention of causing any of them any harm. She shoots Omid out of panic and is so remorseful she practically commits suicide.]]

* ''[[ComicBook/XForce Uncanny X-Force]]'' reveals that the ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse reality had been positively ''slammed'' with this, and ''off-panel'' no less, since we last saw it. The eponymous dictator was dead and everyone seemed to be starting to rebuild their lives... and then [[CosmicBeing the Celestials]] showed up, judging that Earth must be destroyed. {{Wolverine}} cuts a deal with the Celestials: he will function as their agent on Earth if they spare the planet. The Celestials accept and transform Wolverine with their technology. Now, who was the last guy they did this to? Oh, right, [[OhCrap Apocalypse himself]]. Needless to say, it doesn't end well: pogroms against baseline humans are initiated, Rogue and {{Magneto}}'s preteen son is ''eaten'' by a villain, and by the end of the arc that reveals all this, only two of the reality's X-Men are left alive.

** Balon Greyjoy's actions make things infinitely worse for the Stark faction (and his own son Theom), which does make sense as he's doing a lot of them simply because they'll make things worse for the Starks since he wants revenge against an already-dead Stark and so is gunning for the whole family, and then when there's a point in the story when he might actually need to do something himself instead of directing his family, but he dies by falling off a bridge. So he was entirely pointless for anything other than making things worse for the Starks and Theon.
