* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' does this with the Eclipse that ends the Golden Age arc (and the anime) with Griffith's FaceHeelTurn leaving the entire Band of the Hawk[[note]]with the exception of Rickert, who was not with the Band when it all went down and thus was the only other survivor[[/note]] branded for sacrifice. The Hawks' Raiders pretty much get slaughtered ''en masse'' by the monsters from hell, but as the horror continues, each of the important members of the Hawks go down one by one until only Guts and Casca are left. And then it all goes to hell.\\\
This sequence also has an aspect of a SuicideMission about it, in that two of the Hawks die trying to get Casca away; Pippin gets eaten holding off a bunch of monsters and Judeau takes a spike through the chest for Casca. They succeed insofar that Casca doesn't ''die'', but [[spoiler:by the time [[DarkMessiah Femto]] is [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty done]] [[RapeAsDrama with]] [[ColdBloodedTorture her]]]], [[GoMadFromTheRevelation she's been driven completely insane]].

* In ''Raven: The Island'', a spin-off of the children's fantasy gameshow ''Raven'', three teams of young "Warriors" must travel across an enchanted island to retrieve the "Time Pieces" which are needed for the final mission. However, the island is cursed and any Warrior who fails to successfully negotiate an obstacle is instantly eliminated. Of the twelve Warriors who set out at the beginning of the series, five have been eliminated by the time the teams meet up and a further four are eliminated after that, meaning only three (one from each team) make it through to the end.

* ''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''. Ultimately, only a handful of the kids WICKED used as subjects (between four and seven from Group A, plus an unspecified number from Group B) make it through to the end.

* AttackOnTitan, being a sereis where AnyoneCanDie is brutally enforced, this gradually happens to the graduates of the 104th [[spoiler: though in a twist, this is not because of character deaths; Annie, Bertolt, and Reiner turn out to be titan infiltrators; Yimr is another Titan Shifter, but [[WildCard separate from the other 3]]; and Krista Lenz/Historia Reiss turns out to be royalty (illegitimate at first, [[AwesomeMomentOfCrowning made legitimate]]), thus too important to risk out on the front lines.]]

* Near the end of the ''Literature/TheMazeRunner'' the Grievers settle on a pattern of taking someone every day. The ''The Scorch Trials'' continues the trend with more diverse death-dealing implements.

* In ''VideoGame/LostDimension'', you start out with 10 party members, but by the end of the game you'll only have [[spoiler: 6]]. This is due to the game's BigBad forcing your group to vote off one of it's members periodically.
