* ''[[VideoGame/{{Lisa}} LISA: The Painful RPG]]'' combines this with RealityEnsues: Like in real life, your party members can recover from things like being knocked unconscious, beaten to a pulp, or bleeding out (albeit through more bizarre and faster ways that real people.) Also like real life, being hit with a move named "Fatal Chomp", "Neck Break", or "Decapitate" will kill your party members instantly with no way to bring them back.

* As mentioned by the AVGN, in ''TheWizardOfOz'', if the Lion dies, he's dead for the rest of the game.
** Not just him: Scarecrow and Tin Man too. Though you can pick up lives for all 3 of them, they are pretty rare in comparison to Dorothy's.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Videogame/DarkestDungeon'', when a hero dies, that's it. All that's left to remember them by is a marker in the hamlet's cemetery. Fortunately, you're never in want of fresh recruits to throw into the meat-grinder. Unfortunately, you're going to need to keep some of them alive long enough to be able to face the Darkest Dungeon itself [[spoiler:and two of the heroes you send to face the final boss ''will'' die no matter what. And you have to choose which ones.]]

* Spoofed in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' with the April Fools Day announcement of Wisps as a new player race. They would have the ability to explode, permanently sacrificing the character in exchange for draining 50 mana from all units nearby (the ability wisps had in ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII''). This ability would not be even remotely useful if it caused a [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist normal]] [=WoW=] death, and there is naturally no ability in the game worth destroying your character in order to use.

* In the second ''VideoGame/MechWarrior Mercenaries'', any of your lancemates whose 'mechs are destroyed will ''usually'' eject safely, however this trope is occasionally invoked, forcing you to hire a replacement pilot.

* In ''ShadowPresident'', depending on the actions that you take throughout the game, your advisors may resign due to policy disagreements, be assassinated, or be caught up in a scandal. These advisors do not come back, making your job as President very difficult, as they're able to provide many of the facts behind other countries including military capabilities, population statistics, and financial standings.

* In ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'', the members of the evil Deboss Legion end up in the Darkness of the Land/Deboss Hell when they're slain, and can be brought back to life by retrieving them (something that happens several times over the course of the series). [[spoiler:In the final arc, the team's mentor Torin allows himself to be killed so he can destroy Deboss Hell from the inside, preventing the members from ever coming back. Sadly, in the process he (as well as Spirit Rangers Ramirez and Tessai) also pass on for good.]]

*In ''DoctorWho,'' a Time Lord is very LongLived, and can regenerate into a new body to avoid most brands of death. The rule is 12 regenerations for a total of 13 lives. As such, a Time Lord would enjoy a lifespan in at ''least'' five digits if s/he were to live a full life in each body. Even then, regeneration energy can be granted or stolen. However, Time Lords can be and ''are'' KilledOffForReal sometimes, either by taking so much damage that what's left can't trigger a regeneration (River Song says stopping both hearts at once would do it, the Master says that ''and'' the ChunkySalsaRule are a sure method), or certain poisons, or certain brands of punishment
in the process he (as well as Spirit Rangers Ramirez and Tessai) also pass early, unstable days of a new body, or Time Lord weaponry. ''Trying'' to regenerate when OutOfContinues is a good way to evaporate on for good.]]the spot, too (though the one time we see that comes from an unfinished episode whose finished portions have been released, so the canonicity of this is debatable.)

* The Virtual Boy game ''Teleroboxer'' has a "Title Defense" mode in which you must fight all eight of your robot opponents at random (This mode can only be played if you defeat all eight boxers and remain undefeated). If you lose even one match in this mode, then it will say that you are no longer the champion and must now retire. The next time you go to the File Select screen, it will say "CHAMPION RETIRED" on whatever save file you played on, meaning that you cannot replay on that same file again.

* ''HeavyRain'' is a defining example of this trope: at several points throughout its plot, any one of the four playable characters can get themselves into a situation during which they can die. It's possible to survive the encounter every time it happens, but if they don't, though, they stay dead, and the game keeps on going. Two of them can't die until the final showdown, though.
