** In the third game, DistressedDamsel Fabiana suffers from this, being rescued in the first chapter only to be recaptured in the second and eventually [[StuffedIntoTheFridge fridged]] halfway through the game. To add insult to injury, it barely even counts as a karmic strike against her murderer, who Max even secretly hopes became a KarmaHoudini in the end.

When it happens to male characters, it's often {{Retirony}} (the hero cop losing his partner, etc.). Literal {{Gender Flip}}s do exist (ie a man who is killed off to start a woman's search for {{Revenge}}) but are seldom seen. Tragic death of other family members may need [[ParentalAbandonment another trope]]. Even if they somehow survive one movie, there's still SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome. If this happens often enough with love interests, it can become a CartwrightCurse.

** Because DeathIsCheap and prone to {{Retcon}}, several females are no longer considered dead, despite dying gruesome deaths. Psylocke was killed by Vargas in ''X-Treme X-Men'', but is now fine. Blink was presumed dead in ''X-Men'' Vol 2 #37, and returns in ''Necrosha''. Magik died in ''Uncanny X-Men'' #303, but returns by ''New X-Men'' #40. Boom-Boom was shot and killed in ''X-Force'' Vol 3 #13, but her death was prevented in ''X-Force'' Vol 3 #17.
