They end up dying one by one while going through the test, each time [[HeroicSacrifice giving their life so the others can go on]]. In the end, [[TheHero Danael]] and a dying [[BadassPrincess Jadina]] alone make it to the Guardian, [[ShaggyDogStory only for a villainous character to double-cross them and take the Stone they wanted for himself]].

* ''Literature/TheMazeRunner'': Twelve members of Group A are already dead by the time Thomas and Teresa arrive in the Glade. By the end of the book, another twenty-seven have died (not counting Gally, who is twice [[DisneyDeath thought to be dead only for him to turn up alive]]) and there are further deaths in ''The Scorch Trials'' and ''The Death Cure''. Group B follow a similar pattern, though they have around twice as many surviving members as Group A when the two groups meet up towards the end of ''The Scorch Trials''. Ultimately, only a handful of the kids WICKED used as subjects (between four and seven from Group A, plus an unknown number from Group B) make it through to the end.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' can play like this, with party members leaving due to certain quests or their particular stance in the mage-templar conflict as well as their relationship with Hawke near the end of the game. The only character that is guaranteed to stay with Hawke throughout is Varric since he's the narrator of the story.
* The ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' original in {{DLC}} and only from the enemy POV: in ''The Darkspawn Chronicles'', the Warden has died at Ostagar and Alistair leads their remaining party into the FinalBattle, leaving a member to defend every major point in the city. Then you, as a Hurlock Vanguard, come along and kill them all, one by one.

** And again in ''The Doomsday Ship''. The two Arrandas, [[ShadowsOfTheEmpire Dash Rendar]], TheCaptain of the ship, and several crewmen are left on a ship where [[EverythingIsTryingToKillYou everything is trying to kill them]]. [[spoiler: All the unnamed members of the party are killed via EvilElevator, another falls down the elevator shaft the party is climbing after droids start throwing things at them, the last is [[ContinuousDecompression sucked into space through a hole put in the hull]], and Captain Hajj falls to his death while climbing through a tube when he's attacked by tiny acid-spraying robots.
