* ''Manga/X1999'' is heading towards this direction at least as the TV series is concerned. Among the Dragons of Heaven, only Yuzuriha, Aoki, Arashi and Subaru are left while Kusanagi is SoleSuvivor of the Dragons of Earth.

There are also times when actually killing off the characters ([[AllDeathsFinal and having them stay dead]]) isn't an option. They might be the main characters in a series where PlotArmor applies, or the work might be a prequel to another work featuring the same characters. In these circumstances, any scenario which involves the characters dying one by one can only be resolved by [[ClimacticBattleResurrection bringing them back to life]]. Or, rather than have the party be reduced in size via the deaths of its members, the work may have the characters be captured or otherwise prevented from continuing towards their goal, though this does mean there has to be some means of rescuing the trapped characters and reuniting them with their companions.

It's worth noting that if this happens to a hero enough times, [[FridgeLogic you have to wonder]] why anyone would voluntarily follow him after a while.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', of all shows, provides an example of this (which is, albeit non-lethal, not any less tragic). The 2nd season pilot thematises how the 6 protagonists are lured into an enchanted maze by Discord, the antagonist, and get hypnotised and subsequently psychologically broken by him one by one. He even spares Twilight Sparkle, the last of the cast, just so she can see what he has done to the others.
