* 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.

* ''TheMoteInGodsEye''. After the three midshipmen crash land on Mote Prime, they wander around for a while and make a number of discoveries. The Motie decision makers decide to kill them to keep them from telling the other humans what they've found out. And it plays out the other way, too. The humans are about to be captured, but they decide that they know too much about human technology to allow themselves to be taken prisoner -- so they kill themselves.

** 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.
** In ''Brotherhood'', so did Isaac [=McDougall=]. He also gets offed for his efforts.

** All five Gundam Pilots were ordered to kill anybody who sees the Gundams, or who discovers their identities. Heero takes it to an extreme, by repeatedly [[IneffectualDeathThreats threatening to kill]] Relena for finding him washed up on a beach in his spacesuit. Duo was a bit more forgiving, by simply using a road flare to obscure Relena's view of Wing Zero and Deathscythe. Then warned her that it was in her best interests to look away.

Quantz mobilized them and sent them to silence her, before she could get the information back to the Gundam pilots - with the attempt being narrowly subverted, [[BigDamnHeroes thanks to Duo's intervention.]]

* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' features several cases:
** The series ''starts'' with this trope: AmateurSleuth Shinichi Kudo comes across a mysterious black man extorting from another man, but he fails to see the black man's partner, who sneaks on him and knocks him out cold with a lead pipe. The two triy to force feed him a poison pill...but the pill [[FountainOfYouth only shrinks him into a body of a child]] and assumes the alias of Conan Edogawa.
