** It's not until quite a bit later in the story that the audience is shown exactly what he had uncovered. At first it seemed that he'd discovered little more than that there ''was'' an AncientConspiracy, and his knowledge shouldn't really have been a threat to them yet. But in fact, he'd also realized that [[spoiler:'''all of Amestris was a giant transmutation circle''']], a fact that was the ''''''linchpin''''' of the entire conspiracy. No wonder the guy got offed.

* ''ComicBook/ButtonMan'': Offing is standard procedure of dealing with anyone who knows too much about the killing game. Even Harry himself has tied up some loose ends of his own.

Added DiffLines:

* The driving force as to why TheSyndicate keeps trying to kill Spike in ''Anime/CowboyBebop''. He tried leaving after he met Julia, but his fellow teamsters felt that he would be too much of a risk if he ever got it in his head to squeal on them.

* Played with an in episode of ''Anime/{{Lupin III|Blue Jacket||'' where Nyx's daughter accidentally finds some evidence that would expose Rebecca as a thief. Rebecca seemingly kidnaps the girl, and when Nyx confronts her, she says that she had to do it to "keep her mouth shut". Nyx takes this as an indication that Rebecca has murdered the young girl to silence her, and understandably freaks out. [[spoiler: It turns out that Rebecca actually just sent the girl off on an all-expenses-paid shopping trip in order to bribe her into keeping quiet.]]

* ''Anime/PhantomQuestCorp'': In Incident File 04, Detective Karino suspects [[spoiler: the Hadja]] of running a scam operation and gets caught snooping around their compound. Their leader, [[spoiler: [[BaldOfEvil Mukyo]]]], has him subjected to tickle torture while interrogating him about how much he knows. Then attempts to silence him permanently by dangling him over a pit and [[FedToTheBeast summoning the apparitions he'd allegedly excorcised.]] Thankfully, [[RedheadedHero Ayaka]] and the others arrived at that time to save Karino's bacon.
