* By the time ''{{Xenosaga}} Episode III's'' credits roll, all but one of the major antagonists are dead or otherwise out of the picture, three party members (Jin, chaos, and KOS-MOS) are either dead/gone or incapacitated, all of the series's supernatural figures have ascended to another plane for the time being, and about 90% of human life in the universe has been transformed into Gnosis. Episode III's second disc alone is responsible for the majority of these deaths.

* ''Film/{{Logan}}'' kills off [[spoiler: every adult of significance, including the title character. The only ones who survive are Laura and the rest of the X-23 kids.]]

* ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'': The ending is very vague, leaving the orphans marooned on an uninhabited island, with only ''The Beatrice Letters'' to suggest any of them made it back to civilization. As for the rest of the characters, anyone who didn't die can easily be presumed dead, especially the unimportant background characters who perished in one of Olaf's acts of setting a building on fire.

* ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryAsylum'' manages to kill off every main character save one (possibly two as one of the character's fates is quite ambiguous) as well as all of the recurring characters.

** ''[[Series/AmericanHorrorStoryRoanoke Roanoke]]'' outdoes ''Asylum'' by killing off ''all'' the main characters, leaving just two characters alive at the end - and they are very minor characters at that.

* Being a musical set 150+ years ago, ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' kills off most of its characters in the final two songs. Aside from the characters who died within the timespan of the show (Laurens in "Tomorrow There'll Be More Of Us", Philip in "Stay Alive (Reprise)", and Washington some time after "One Last Time"), the titular character is killed in the climactic duel in "The World Was Wide Enough", his sister-in-law Angelica dies sometime later in "Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story", and the song ends with Hamilton's wife Eliza dying and meeting Hamilton again in heaven - an action which occurs in ''1854'', meaning she outlived Aaron Burr, Thomas Jefferson, Marquis de Lafayette, John Madison, ''and'' John Adams. Even if they didn't die on stage, they were certainly all dead by the end of the show.

** Its sequel, ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'', both plays it straight and subverts it during [[spoiler: Route C/D which begins with the Bunker and most of the YoRHa units dying, 2B being infected by the [[TheCorruption Logic Virus]] and being killed by A2 (by 2B's order). Later, the virus infects Pascal's village, ending with a few slew of survivors (all of them children) who commit mass suicide, and you can kill Pascal as well, if you want. Devola and Popola sacrifice their lives later to allow 9S to proceed to the final area to defeat the Terminals who are the ones behind the whole war. Ending C ends with A2 performing a HeroicSacrifice with a stinger who implies that 9S also dies, while Ending D ends with 9S killing A2 and, depending of the player's choice, 9S dying on earth.]] [[spoiler:[[{{Subverted|Trope}}In Ending E]], the pods, having gained emotions, rebuild 2B, 9S and A2, giving them a second chance at life, making it the [[GoldenEnding happiest outcome]] in a Creator/YokoTaro game.]]

...All of which make it sound more optimistic than it is. The ''sum total'' of all survivors in the GoldenEnding are [[spoiler:the rebuilt 2B, 9S, and A2, Jackass, Anemone, the minority Resistance androids lucky enough to survive multiple assaults on their base, relatively few straggler Machine Lifeforms wandering aimlessly now their network is gone,]] and a couple of crackheads out in the desert [[SleptThroughTheApocalypse too stoned to notice the world ending]].

* In ''Manga/DragonBallZ'', the villain [[ChaoticEvil Super Buu]] has an attack dubbed "Human Extinction," that does [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly as the name implies]]. To add to that, anyone who isn't killed by this attack he kills personally (by turning them into candy, no less). Then he reverts to his ''even crazier'' Kid Buu form and immediately [[EarthShatteringKaboom blows up the Earth]] for the lulz. Then, he turns to the rest of the universe, and eventually makes his way to the afterlife, and starts destroying stuff there. This is one of the rare cases where the heroes have a ResetButton - which itself becomes a plot point, as the surviving secondary cast rushes to find it before it becomes too late for everyone (as the ResetButton has a time limit, ''and'' it's something that Buu is capable of destroying if he gets to it first).

* Out of 25 main characters and several minor ones on ''Series/HarpersIsland'', 4 make it out alive (2 due to InfantImmortality). There are 29 deaths on screen. The promos had heavily implied that '''everyone''' was going to die, although the writers opted not to go there.

* This is how the "Legend of Archery" music video by Music/DriftlessPonyClub ends, though it's not as extreme as other examples here, where ninja! Sam Grant (the bassist) kills the other three members. [[InfantImmortality Subverted shortly after, though, as three babies are left behind.]]

* At the end of its second part, ''VideoGame/TrafficDepartment2192'' kills off [[ApocalypseHow the entire population of the planet on which it was set]], except for a few members of the Traffic Department who escape. In part 3, everyone in the Traffic Department except [[VillainProtagonist Velasquez]], [[RobotBuddy Bob]], and Velasquez's [[InfantImmortality young son Ian]] dies, but they take with them all of the [[AlienInvaders alien chain of command]] in their region of space except [[RedemptionEarnsLife Orlok, who wants to reform the invaders from within]], and Mala, another child. Between the two factions a species of SiliconBasedLife is completely annihilated. Velasquez's [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul cybernetic implants are damaging her brain and will kill her soon]], so that leaves a grand total of four survivors out of everyone who appears onscreen.

* ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' has over [[MultipleEndings twenty endings]], a number of which imply a total castpocalypse. Special mention goes to Clover's ending, however, which involves the player character walking in on a room filled with the corpses of six of the cast [[DrivenToSuicide and promptly deciding to join them.]] The remaining two characters fates are left ambiguous; [[InfantImmortality Quark]] is presumably left trapped in the Cryo chamber, whereas K appears to have picked up the deadly virus Radical-6.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAnimalsOfFarthingWood'', while it ultimately has an EarnYourHappyEnding, has a ''massive'' body count for a children's cartoon. Only eight of the twenty-nine characters introduced in season one make it to the end, and that's not counting the casualties among later introductions. InfantImmortality is no solace, either.
