* In ''Film/DeepRising'', Finnegan's XO Leila is the first of the protagonists to be killed by the creatures. What makes it especially sad is that, despite her brief screen time setting her up as one of the most sympathetic cast members, her fate gets barely any mention by her crew mates, least of all the mercs. Finnegan's reaction boils down to one gloomy "I don't think she made it" to her boyfriend Joey, who in turn sheds a tear for her during his following repair job but goes back to his usual snarky self immediately afterwards, effectively forgetting about her from that moment forth.

It is also seen with Kimmy's friend Amanda. Her only roles are to encourage Kimmy to go in the first place and [[spoiler: to be found dead by Byran to show how the bad guys are monsters and thus how much more important it is for Bryan to find her ASAP.]]
* Goose from ''Film/TopGun'' was this for Maverick, though his character had a bigger role than the other examples here. Parodied in the ''Film/TopGun'' spoof ''Film/HotShots'' with the character whose call sign is "Dead Meat".
