* During the "Orders" arc of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', a clone trooper nicknamed Fives discovers the existence of an organic chip implanted into each clone trooper's brain at birth, enabling one to command the clones to commit any action without hesitation, such as killing the Jedi. When he attempts to present his findings to the Chancellor, he is secretly drugged by the lead scientist responsible for the organic chips to make him appear insane. Furthermore, the Chancellor reveals that he's the one who orchestrated the implantation of the organic chips, and has Fives hunted down and ultimately killed before Fives can reveal the truth to the Jedi.

* A short story in ''The Best in Chess'' revolves around a cobbler who claims to have discovered [[GameBreaker an unbeatable chess opening]], thereby rendering all TabletopGame/{{Chess}} theory--and the game itself--obsolete. A chessmaster reassures him that there's still a way to defeat it, but then [[spoiler:plunges a chess bishop into the cobbler's back]].

-->'''Draco:''' W-was that a muggle?\\
'''Harry:''' Of course not! That was a witness.\\
'''Draco:''' To what?\\
'''Harry:''' That matters even less than if he was a muggle. He thought he saw something, that was enough. [[ImpliedDeathThreat You haven't seen anything today, have you, cousin]]?\\

Another, less sympathetic variation occurs when a character learns a guilty secret possessed by another character and decides it would be a profitable enterprise to {{blackmail}} the second character in exchange for their silence. This one usually overlaps with AssholeVictim, since the second character understandably won't like the idea of being on the hook to a sleazy blackmailer for the rest of their life, and is likely to decide that getting rid of the blackmailer will cost them less in the long run than paying up. If the blackmail victim's guilty secret is that they are a murderer, this may also add elements of TooDumbToLive to the blackmailer -- after all, someone who's already killed at least one person is unlikely to have many qualms about bumping off someone else, particularly if that someone else is trying to exploit them for money.

** In Part 4 (''Diamong is Unbreakable''), [[spoiler:Shigechi]] buys a limited-edition sandwich, but picks up the wrong bag after setting it next to someone else's. [[spoiler:The bag he took belonged to Kira, who had left his latest victim's hand in it. When Shigechi opens the bag and sees what's in it, Kira murders him to hide his crimes.]]

** Takes place twice in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'': Some characters know well what the Hell is going on in the Empire of Grado ([[WhiteMagicianGirl the Cleric Natasha]] [[spoiler: whose mentor, a well-respected high priest, was killed for discovering that the Emperor was dead and revived as an ArtificialHuman]] and [[BadassBookworm the Shaman Knoll]], [[spoiler: Lyon's [[TheLancer second-hand]] in the project to revive said Emperor]]). What does the Empire do? They frame both of them as traitors; Natasha has to flee from her homeland and Knoll is imprisoned and slated for execution. Subverted because, in-game, both survive and join Eirika's (in Natasha's case) or Ephraim's (in Knoll's) troupes.
** Towards the end of the ''Conquest'' route in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', [[spoiler: the SmugSnake Iago figures out that the Avatar is a traitor when his men discover a certain someone who was meant to be killed. After hearing his accusations, the Nohrian royal siblings decide that it would be better to kill Iago and Hans to protect their foster sibling's life rather than face the wrath of an enraged Garon. Iago and Hans ''really'' don't help their case [[IdiotBall by attacking the Avatar]], too.]]

** The scholars of Ohara got too deep in researching the Void Century (which is hinted at being a huge threat toward the [[TheGovernment World Government]]), and consequently the island, along with its inhabitants, was [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverKill bombarded into oblivion]] by the World Government. It's also the real reason why Nico Robin has a bounty; [[spoiler: her mother Olvia was one of the Scholars ''and'' she inherited her knowledge]].

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': Redcloak in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0827.html #827]] can't risk certain facts about a battle getting back to Xykon. Most of his soldiers in that battle were summoned and could be simply dismissed, but there was one goblin who needed to be dead. Luckily for Redcloak, the goblin in question was killed in that same battle, so was able to [[DownplayedTrope merely refrain from resurrecting him]].
