* In ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', the ants discover that main villain Hopper is afraid of birds, so they build a fake one to try and scare him away. He sees right through their ploy; so when Flik and Princess Atta lead him to an ACTUAL bird in the finale, he doesn't realize it's not a trick until it's too late.

* Scar in ''Disney/TheLionKing'' finds his end by the hyenas. Particularly chilling, since most other examples of this trope treats the animal as the vessel for Karma, or just a force of nature. But the hyenas that eat Scar were goofy, well-characterized villains earlier in the film, making his death feel like a murder rather than an accident.

* The loathsome [[spoiler:Ser Amory]] from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' meets his end when his captors throw him, naked and unarmed, into a pit with a starving bear.
* In ''[[Literature/TheHeritageOfShannara The Druid of Shannara]]'', PsychoForHire Pe Ell is killed by the Koden, a gigantic bear. It's implied to have been set up by the King of the Silver River, as revenge for the death of his daughter. In ''[[Literature/{{Shannara}} High Druid of Shannara]]'', the ShapeShifting [[TheDragon Moric]] is last seen lying on the ground as an actual [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragon]] approaches it. Meta-irony much?
* Happens in the third book of Creator/CSLewis' "Literature/TheSpaceTrilogy" ''That Hideous Strength'', with Mr Bultitude, an actual bear.
* The Literature/JudgeDee story ''The Haunted Monastery'' ends like this, [[BearsAreBadNews involving an actual bear]]. After the man behind several murders of women affably points out that he is untouchable due to the lack of evidence and his connections in the Imperial Court, Dee agrees with his assessment, then lures him into a courtyard being used to exercise a savage bear owned by a visiting theatre troupe, that can only be controlled by his master. Dee says he will leave the villain's fate in the hands of Heaven. If the bear's owner hears his screams and comes in time to rescue him...well, he doesn't.



* In ''Literature/TheCatWho Said Cheese'', [[spoiler:an abusive ex-husband]] tracks [[spoiler:his ex-wife]] to Moose County, [[spoiler:using the fact that back in the navy he saved a shipmate's life (said shipmate still suffered brain damag)e as leverage to coerce the local, now a beekeeper into becoming an accessory to the bombing of said frightened ex's hotel room.

* In the Sister Mary Helen mystery ''Death of an Angel'', the B plot covers an alumna's plan to [[TheDogBitesBack murder]] [[MyBelovedSmother her domeineering, abusive mother]]. [[spoiler:Her plan for disposing of the body is to underfeed her mother's standard poodles, and then set them on the dead body so that there will be nothing to implicate her. However, in the confrontation, Mama injures her face. Then the rapist-murderer from the A plot invades the house, and then [[BigDamnHeroes the two nuns who are the amateur sleuths in the series arrive, as do the police]]. The rapist is stopped but then dogs come from the basement and smell the blood on Angelica's face and attack her.
