* In ''Series/{{Lexx}}'' His Divine Shadow was very thorough in wiping out the Brunnen-G in order to thwart a prediction that the last of their race would destroy him, but he made the mistake of [[TemptingFate mocking the prophecy]] by turning several of the corpses into an [[IdiotBall undead immortal killing machines]] under his control. [[spoiler:The Divine Shadow himself is the parasitic essence of the last Insect that the Brunnen-G missed when they defeated the Insect Civilization who ends up regaining his memories, killing him, and bringing down the entire Divine Order.]]

[[folder:Religion]] * Literature/TheBible provides some examples: ** In the Literature/BookOfExodus, Pharaoh commanded that all male Hebrew babies must be put to death. The lone escapee, Moses, became the freer of the Hebrews. Worst of all, the Egyptians got the infanticide reversed on them when the tenth plague struck down all their firstborn. ** [[{{Jesus}} Jesus Christ]]. Herod could not kill all the Jewish boys who had been born under the star of Bethlehem because Jesus was in Egypt. And John the Baptist was in hiding in the wilderness with his mother. However, neither Jesus nor John ever actually did anything to Herod; he just died of old age a couple of years later, while they were still small children. (Specifically, he died of chronic kidney disease and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fournier_gangrene Fournier gangrene]], the latter of which is often interpreted as [[{{God}} Jesus' dad]] invoking this trope.) Though his grandson, [[DeadGuyJunior Herod]], got killed by an angel for persecuting the early church a couple of decades later. ** In the Literature/BookOfEsther, we have [[EvilChancellor Haman]], who ends up HoistByHisOwnPetard on the gallows/spikes (your translation's mileage may vary) he had built to kill Mordecai. ** Literature/BooksOfKings: Queen Grandmother Athaliah of Judah attempted to extirpate the whole David family line. One boy, Joash, survived... [[/folder]]

Added Yoda. Can't forget him.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'', of course. They didn't kill Anakin and Padmé's children. Nor did they kill Obi-Wan. They didn't even kill Leia when they killed all the other Alderaanians. This did not work out well for Palpatine.

** For bonus points, ''Dragon Ball Minus'' reveals that if Frieza hadn't ordered all the Saiyans back to their home planet to destroy them all at once, Goku wouldn't have even been sent to Earth by his suspicious parents.

** Fire Lord Sozin knew that after he left Roku to die, the Avatar would reincarnate amongst the Air Nomads. So, the Fire Nation managed to kill off the Air Nomads... except for [[TheChosenOne the one kid they were aiming for]]. Aang ends up stopping the Fire Nation later (though they did screw up the world and their own cultural morality pretty badly in those 100 years he was gone).

* Tried by Darken Rahl in ''LegendOfTheSeeker''. He got wind of a prophecy that the True Seeker would be born in a certain town, so he had his troops, led by his most trusted lieutenant, to kill all the first born sons in the town. Sure enough, Richard was spirited away, and when Rahl finds out 20 years later, [[YouHaveFailedMe he executes the lieutenant]].

* The PlayerCharacter in ''JadeEmpire'' is the last surviving Spirit Monk, an order who were slaughtered so that the Emperor could steal the power of their goddess, the Water Dragon, to defy the Heavens and end a severe drought. [[spoiler:The player character survives because of Master Li's plan and Master Li manipulates him into killing the Emperor for him so that Li can steal both the throne and the Water Dragon's power. In one ending, it works.]]

After the Kushan perfect hyperspace technology, [[spoiler:the Emperor decides to invoke a four-thousand-year-old treaty that the race had forgotten, which was that they were not permitted to develop any hyperspace technology. This results in the near-genocide of said race]], and in addition to causing the survivors to get royally pissed off and begin a war against them, also results in a massive rebellion rising up due to public outrage of an essentially unprovoked attack on [[spoiler:a fledgling race that had just started interstellar travel]]. By the end of the game, Kushan and Taiidani rebels assault the Taiidani homeworld in joint force, destroy the defense fleet as well as the Emperor's flagship, then make landfall and shut down the cloning facilities that housed replacements, shattering the Empire entirely except for a few remnants with little power.

* In the first ''VideoGame/{{Homeworld}}'' game, this is how the Taiidan Empire meets its end. After the main race perfect hyperspace technology, the Emperor (who is indisputably insane) decides to invoke a long forgotten, thousands-of-years-old treaty that the race had forgotten, which was that they were not allowed to develop any hyperspace technology. This results in the near-genocide of said race, and in addition to causing the survivors to get royally pissed off and begin a war against them, also results in a massive rebellion popping up due to public outrage of an essentially unprovoked attack on a fledgling race that had just started interstellar travel. By the end of the game, the main race is assaulting the Taiidan homeworld with the aid of the rebels, and destroys the defense fleet as well as the Emperor's flagship, then goes down and destroys the cloning facilities that housed replacements, destroying the Empire entirely except for a few remnants with little power. ** The backstory reveals that this is how the original Hiigaran Empire fell. They were on fairly even terms with the rival Taiidani, until the Hiigarans got their hands on one of the Great Hyperspace Cores, allowing them to jump whole fleets enormous distances with pinpoint accuracy. They use it to jump their fleet into orbit of the original Taiidani homeworld and lay waste to it before jumping back. Outraged, the Bentusi and the other races demand that the Hiigarans surrender the Core, as they clearly abuse its power. Instead of peacefully handing over the Core, the Hiigaran fleet attacks the Bentusi, who promptly wipe out the whole fleet. As a result, the Hiigarans are now defenseless against the pissed-off Taiidani, who are now in need of a new homeworld. Cue the CurbStompBattle and the exile of the Hiigarans.
