* In ''Videogame/YuGiOhMonsterCapsuleGB'', losing a monster means it's gone forever, though this doesn't apply to Yugi's friends.

* Losing a party member in ''VideoGame/SweetHome'' had them gone for good with their personal item going along with them. There are other items in the mansion that act as replacements, but they take up a spot in your very limited inventory. Depending on who died, when they died and where, you could wind up in an {{Unwinnable}} game. The ending also changes depending on how many characters died.

** ''ZakMckrackenAndTheAlienMindbenders'' has a few ways too, such as deliberately running out of oxygen on Mars (or stepping outside without a proper space suit) or walking into the Sphinx' guardian room three times. All are easily avoidable. They will also make the game unwinnable, as both Zak and Annie are needed to trigger the final action needed to complete the game.

* 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 early, unstable days of a new body, or Time Lord weaponry. ''Trying'' to regenerate when OutOfContinues is a good way to evaporate on 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.)

** There's a game for Mac OS X (''[[SchmuckBait Lose/Lose]]'') that deletes a file in your Home folder everytime you kill an enemy. When you lose a life, the game deletes itself. Not only is it a FinalDeath for your player (of course, you could redownload it, but that's missing the point), but also for your precious files as well. Goodbye, music library and precious childhood photos. Norton Antivirus classified it as a virus, understandably.

* ''VideoGame/StateOfDecay'' has this for all potential player-controlled survivors. Whether you are controlling them or not, if a survivor dies, they're done in for the rest of the playthrough, and all their built-up stats and skills go straight with them. Non-playable and [[PlotArmor plot-critical]] [=NPCs=] such as the MissionControl Lily Ritter and Doc Hanson are immune to this, and many survivors such as [[spoiler:Pastor Will]] are [[PlotlineDeath scripted to die at certain points]] and cannot be killed before then, but even some characters with significant relevance to the story, such as Lily's brother Jacob and the initial player character Marcus, are all fair game.

* 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.]]

* In the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series, a unit that falls in battle in the missions is generally gone for the remainder of the campaign. Plot-important characters are considered to have sustained a crippling injury so that they can never fight again (allowing them to interact with other characters during cutscenes), whereas less important characters simply perish. If a ''main'' character is killed, it is [[WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou game over]]. There is, however, nothing to prevent players from [[SaveScumming reloading the mission]] every time a character dies. Recent entries in the series include a "Casual Mode" where this can be disabled, allowing defeated characters to be usable again in the next mission (or even the next ''turn'', in the case of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''' "Pheonix Mode".

* Defied in one specific instance in ''TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEater''. Polydegmon, the Kerberos of Mictlan, is known as 'The Welcomer of Many' and 'The Collector of Souls'. But see, if you can somehow entreat his favor (indeed the rulebook says that while the path to his graces may be long and arduous, eventually he ''will'' concede to your request), you can request the soul of anyone who has ever died from him. It doesn't matter if the person in question experienced FinalDeath or even CessationOfExistence, he can easily summon the soul just the same. This power, combined with his [[PhysicalGod perfect stats]], [[GeniusLoci Geognosis]] and the ability to [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem change the rules of his realm at a whim]] seem to confirm that he is one of the mythical [[AGodAmI Deathlords.]]
