To compare, take the ''NYPDBlue'' death of Det. Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits) versus the death of Det. Danny Sorenson (Rick Schroder). Smits dies of SoapOperaDisease with a TearJerker sendoff. Schroder left the series, so his character is [[BusCrash killed off-screen]], between seasons.

When done off-screen (like the Sorenson example), it's known as a BusCrash. See also McLeaned, SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome, DistractedFromDeath and NotSoInvincibleAfterAll. If this is done to a character repeatedly with the aid of NegativeContinuity, see TheyKilledKenny. If you're looking for this trope on an expanded scale, see RocksFallEveryoneDies.

[[TropeNamers Named for]] the death of Captain Kirk in ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'', which was expected to be a key, climactic event after 30 years of adventuring. Instead, they (almost literally) Dropped a Bridge on Him in a manner typically reserved for {{Red Shirt}}s.
