* Invidia, of ''Literature/CodexAlera'' is pretty much a poster child for ChronicBackstabbingDisorder. So much so that the BigBad can't even bring herself to be angry at her sudden but inevitable betrayal because that's what Invidia ''does''. This gives it a significant amount of irony when her death results from being stabbed from behind.

** This happens to her twice if you count the assassination attempt that brought her into said BigBad's service (she only survived because the BigBad put her on life support in exchange for her service). She was shot in the back by a traitorous underling using a poisoned bolt. To add insult to injury, she herself had given the underling the bolt to use on whoever had outlived their usefulness to her.



** In the first book, Victor Sells had tried to kill Harry first by siccing a demon on him, and then sending gargantuan scorpion constructs after him. How does he die? Victor Sells tells Harry the real name of the demon, so Harry uses that to free the demon from his control. The demon attacks Sells, and knocks him into a pit of his scorpions, where he is devoured.

** Nearly all of the ways that the Homunculi are killed are either clearly ironic or a reference to [[TheDivineComedy Dante]] (Alighieri, don't confuse with the character of the same name from [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the 2003 anime version]]) who made punishments that were more subtly or symbolically ironic.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' Vol. 3, Episode 11 "Heroes and Monsters", Roman Torchwick has Ruby Rose on the ropes, trying to give her a BreakingSpeech while hitting her with his cane. He's busy trying to wreck her idealistic views, claiming that the world is a cold harsh place that has no place for her and that he'll keep living. Unfortunately for him, his nihilistic views is a gigantic "Eat me!" sign for the Grimm and he promptly gets munched on by one.

Unfortunately for him, his nihilistic views rant is a gigantic giant "Eat me!" sign for the Monsters of Grimm that are all around them and which are attracted to negative emotions. The moment he promptly gets munched on by one.points out how good he is at surviving, a Griffon swallows him whole.

* ''Manga/{{InuYasha}}'': Gatenmaru, the MonsterOfTheWeek for episodes 50 and 51, [[AllWebbedUp webs up]] Inuyasha and [[ForcedToWatch makes him watch]] as he kills and eats helpless village women. The bastard meets his end when Inuyasha enters his SuperpoweredEvilSide and tears him apart with his own bare claws.

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' has this happen oh-so-satisfyingly to [[spoiler: Shinji Matou]] in two of the three routes. In Fate it takes the form of fleeing the scene of [[spoiler: Rider's annihilation at the hands of Saber and Excalibur]] only to run into Ilya and Berserker. In Heaven's Feel he meets his end at the hands of [[spoiler:

In Heaven's Feel he meets his end at the hands of [[spoiler:[[spoiler:his own sister Sakura]] of all people when he tries to blackmail her into a position where he can [[spoiler: rape her]].
* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'': 9 years ago, [[spoiler: Ace threw Akane into the incinerator. ForScience In the "Safe" ending, he gets his comeuppance in the very same room and [[KillItWithFire burns]]]].
** In [[VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward the sequel]], on K's path, Dio is placed into a treatment pod for security reasons after it's revealed he killed the old woman. Sigma and Phi come back later to find that he asphyxiated because the oxygen supply was cut off by K.
* During Arcueid's route in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', a combination of factors make Shiki go briefly insane and sexually assault a drastically-weakened Arcueid. The player can choose whether Shiki gets a hold of himself, or gives in to his desire and rapes her. The correct choice, [[CaptainObvious naturally]], is to stop; the next night, Arcueid has another spasm and tries to drink Shiki's blood...[[spoiler:and hesitates, long enough for Ciel to come to Shiki's rescue]]. If [[MoralEventHorizon Shiki gave in to his dark side and raped her]], on the other hand, Arcueid doesn't hold back, either...
* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' has a good number of these, as to be expected. Most of them are execution scenes, but some of the murders count as well.

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* In ''[[WebComic/AntiHeroes anti-HEROES]]'', the [[http://ah.indolents.com/comic/128 lich Finx]], [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this moments before his demise.
* The [[http://goblinscomic.com/d/20080110.html Fat Guard]] at the claws and beak of [[FluffyTheTerrible Fluffles]] in ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}''. His plan was to, through [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil months of agonizing torture]], turn it into a killing machine that would fight for Brassmoon. Well, he got the first part right...
* ''Webcomic/TheWotch'': Natasha Dahlet of DOLLY is turned into a dolly.
* In ''Webcomic/SamAndFuzzy'', this trope is double subverted. Mr. Blank looks like he'll be setting it up when he is dangling from the side of a flying skyscraper and proclaims that [[NiceGuy Sam]] [[SaveTheVillain doesn't have it in him to let him fall]] -- only to be proven wrong when Sam steps aside and lets [[HeroicComedicSociopath Fuzzy]] unceremoniously kick him off. As it turns out, this didn't take and Blank is later seen climbing up the side of the skyscraper -- only to be hit by the corpse of a man he murdered in cold blood earlier on in the arc, loose his footing, and fall off the building to his death together with the corpse.
* ''Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl'' has, from its bonus comic alternate universe Disaster Dominos comic, Kizuna, who, after murdering several students, dies of the bloodborne disease one of them carried. It isn't present in the main series. Yet.
* The titular business of ''Webcomic/SuicideForHire'' runs on helping people bring karmic deaths onto themselves.
* In ''Webcomic/TheKennyChronicles'' Kenny and Funky's feud started when Funky made a porno of Kenny and his girlfriend having sex in a dumpster. A year later Funky fell six stories into a dumpster (a complete accident, though his friends think Kenny is somehow responsible).
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': After making his FaceHeelTurn, Eridan kills Kanaya with the magic wand she made for him. That's not the karmic death. That comes when after Kanaya comes back as a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Rainbow Drinker]], she snaps said wand in half, then tears her killer a new one [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe with a]] '''chainsaw'''.
** This is also one of two ways a player that has reached Godtier can be permanently killed (the other being a HeroicSacrifice), as Vriska finds out.
* In the space arc of ''Webcomic/ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'' the False Guenevere's mysterious illness is clone degradation. The karmic bit is that it is excerbated by the spells she casts to prevent Arthur realising she's not the real Guenevere.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'':
** Tsukiko is a necromancer who believes that HumansAreBastards, and that inversely, the [[InsaneTrollLogic undead are misunderstood people]] who are better than them. However, in the end, Redcloak proves her wrong by taking control of her wights -- while describing the undead as mere "tools" and "weapons" -- and having them drain her to death and eat the body. Believe it or not, it's actually pretty sympathetic, as evidenced by this exchange:
-->'''Demon Roach''': What's wrong with you?
-->'''Monster in the Darkness''': I guess I'm sad. I mean, [[IJustWantToBeLoved Tsukiko just wanted to be loved]].
-->'''Demon Roach''': So? No one cares.
-->'''Monster in the Darkness''': I know. That's why I'm sad.
** Yukyuk, Belkar's third EvilCounterpart in the Linear Guild, made his [[EstablishingCharacterMoment debut]] by trying to kill [[TeamPet Mr. Scruffy]] for [[KickTheDog no reason]]. After being mentally dominated by Vaarsuvius for a while, he ends up being killed in an attack by his own teammates, while Mr. Scruffy uses him as a body shield.
* In ''Webcomic/TheGreatestGift'', Neptune, the father of Venus (Jupiter) and Astra (the ''real'' Venus), was Venus' PredecessorVillain and absolutely ruthless mob boss of Las Haygas. In the end, he ends up short changing an assassin he hired to kill a rival mob boss, who kills him in revenge.

* Jack O'Connor of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' cheats in a TenPacesAndTurn duel, only to find his opponent (Adam Dodd) had been walking down a slope (something of a DeusExMachina). Jack shooting early allows Adam time to find his aim and fatally wound Jack to win the fight ''and'' v1. This also apparently makes the fact that Adam was ''planning'' on cheating okay simply because Jack tried it earlier.
** Laeil Burbank's first kill (and, in fact, first ''scene'' in V3,) involves her torturing her helpless cousin, leaving him begging for mercy before killing. Of course, it's only fitting that her death involves a helpless Laeil getting horribly tortured and left to die, also begging for mercy.
*** It's also a rare case of a Karmic Death where one can feel [[{{Tearjerker}} sympathy]] for the victim, mostly because her cousin was a dickweed, she had something of a temporary MoralityPet in both Jimmy Trejo and Eddie Sullivan, and the guy who tortured her, JR Rizzolo, was a monster. And there's also her tragic BackStory...
** In another example, [[RapeAsDrama rapist]] and [[MonsterMisogyny literal lady-killer]] Adam Reeves has a two-for-one when he gets his nuts blown off right before his death at the hands of Alexis Machina.
* ''WebAnimation/TheAccuser'': That's what Dr. Pirot gets for helping a serial killer to survive execution.
* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' Vol. 3, Episode 11 "Heroes and Monsters", Roman Torchwick has Ruby Rose on the ropes, trying to give her a BreakingSpeech while hitting her with his cane. He's busy trying to wreck her idealistic views, claiming that the world is a cold harsh place that has no place for her and that he'll keep living. Unfortunately for him, his nihilistic views is a gigantic "Eat me!" sign for the Grimm and he promptly gets munched on by one.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony'', in "The Glass Princess", the Raptorians get turned into glass.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', "Knock It Off" features one-shot villain [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Dick Hardly]], who mass-produces shoddy clones of the Girls for financial gain. When confronted by the girls, he literally ''swallows'' an entire bottle of Chemical X, [[OneWingedAngel turning him into a monster]]. He is soon afterward killed when [[TheDogBitesBack his clones turn against him]] and [[CollapsingLair his factory falls on top of him]].
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':
** During a battle with his brother Orm in the aquatic underground, ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} has Orm hanging off a frozen cliff, begging his brother to have mercy. After he said "You're weak! You're not fit to...(slips)" (Had the sentenced have been finished, he would have likely said "rule"). Aquaman stares, walks up to Orm while he hanging on the cliff, extends his hand and... picks up his trident, leaving Orm to fall to this death.
--> '''Aquaman''': I believe this is mine.
** It's worth considering that Orm threatened Aquaman's son earlier. Clearly, that's one heck of a BerserkButton.
** Another example (although Superman didn't know it at the time), was in "Twilight of the Gods", with Darkseid dying when Brainiac's home-base overloaded in his aim to search for the Anti-Life Equation. Superman probably wouldn't have thought this was fitting death [[BrainwashedAndCrazy given what he did to him]] in their last encounter. Darkseid, who took a received end of a RoaringRampageOfRevenge seemed to find Karma's decision ''quite funny'' since Superman didn't finish him off, and spited him in his last word(s):
-->'''Darkseid''': Loser.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' features a slimy PR lady-slash-cult leader get squished by the very comet she tried to kill everyone with.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': Unalaq is killed by the very same spiritbending technique he used throughout the second arc and considering everything he did up to that point (banishing Tonraq, putting Tonraq in jail, manipulating Korra, putting Jinora into a comatose state, treating his own son as a liability, destroying Korra's link with her past lives, nearly destroying the world etc) he definitely got what was coming to him.
** In Season 3, the Earth Queen had been enslaving airbenders and eating baby sky bison. She is assassinated by Zaheer using airbending by asphyxiation.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** [[ThouShaltNotKill Aang]] actually sits down and discusses this trope with Avatar Kyoshi, no doubt hoping his upcoming battle with Fire Lord Ozai could end the same way as her battle with Chin the Conqueror.
--->'''Aang''': But you didn't really kill Chin. Technically, he [[DisneyVillainDeath fell to his own doom]] because he was too stubborn to get out of the way.\\
'''Kyoshi''': Personally, I don't really see the difference. But I assure you, I would have done whatever it took to stop Chin.
** Also, Zhao's death was a combination of this and HoistByHisOwnPetard.
*** [[spoiler: Actually in ''Legend of Korra'' we find out Zhao has been placed in a spirit world prison [[FateWorseThanDeath where he is unable to die and has gone insane]]]].
* After turning out to be NotQuiteDead toward the end of ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheDiamondCastle'', Lydia attempts to turn the [[TheHero heroines]] to stone with a magic spell, only for the spell to be [[DeflectorShields turned on her]] instead.
* Most episodes of ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest'' TOS in which a {{Villain}} died.
** All of the examples in [[HoistByHisOwnPetard/WesternAnimation Hoist By His Own Petard]] ''except'' "Arctic Splashdown", "Mystery of the Lizard Men" and "Pirates from Below."
** "Arctic Splashdown". While trying to murder Dr. Quest, the BigBad is blown up by the SelfDestructMechanism of the rocket whose guidance control he was trying to steal.
** "Riddle of the Gold":
*** An assassin named Ali is killed by a tiger released by the villains while trying to assassinate Dr. Quest.
*** The {{Villain}} working for Dr. Zin is killed by the leopard pet of the man he murdered earlier.
** "Calcutta Adventure". The enemy {{Mook}} pilot strafing the Quests is killed when his plane runs into some trees, has its wings ripped off and crashes.
** "Shadow of the Condor". The BigBad likes to shoot condors who live near his castle in the Andes. As he's trying to shoot down and kill Race Bannon in an aerial duel, a condor attacks his plane in revenge and causes him to crash into a mountainside.
** "Turu the Terrible". The BigBad is killed while trying to save the titular pteranodon he used to terrorize and enslave native workers.
** "Monster in the Monastery". A group of {{Mooks}} masquerading as yeti (who tried to murder Jonny and Hadji) are killed by a real yeti who's angry about the impersonation.
** "The Fraudulent Volcano". A group of enemy {{mooks}} flying in hover platforms ram into a cliff and blow up while trying to kill the Quests.
** "House of the Seven Gargoyles". Dietrich (the dwarf masquerading as a gargoyle) is murdered by his boss Ivar.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'':
** Played straight in the unedited version, in which the Joker is fatally shot by a young Tim Drake, temporarily unhinged by the Joker's mental and physical tortures. Largely averted in the edited-for-kiddies version, where his death is a not-very-ironic accident. In any case, the Joker himself denies it:
-->'''Joker:''' [[FamousLastWords That's not funny. That's not...]]
** Joker ends up suffering this ''twice'', after using a small device on Tim's neck to inject his own DNA and turn Tim into the new Joker. The new Batman puts a permanent stop to him by destroying the device with one of the Joker's own electrocuting buzzers.
* ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride''. Barkis Bittern, who lured Emily to her doom so many years ago for her money and then attempted to do the same to Victoria, makes a sneering toast to her at her and Victor's interrupted wedding ceremony and downs the goblet of poisoned wine that Victor was going to (willingly) drink. Once dead, he is left at the mercy of enraged corpses.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'':
** Joe Chill, killer of Bruce's parents, dies this way. It's lampshaded and justified soon afterwards:
-->'''Phantom Stranger''': Ultimately it was karma that delivered the final blow to Joe Chill. ...Funny how Chill just happened to be under that crumbling ceiling when it came down.
-->'''Spectre''': I wouldn't know anything about that...
** Also, in the series finale, [[spoiler: Batmite succeeds in getting the show cancelled for a DarkerAndEdgier one, but as a light-hearted and silly character, there's no room for him in the new show, and he is erased from existence.]]
* Megabyte in ''WesternAnimation/{{Reboot}}'' had this happen to him in season 3, though he ended up NotQuiteDead in season 4. After being spared by Matrix Megabyte tries to escape to the Supercomputer, but Mouse changes the portal's destination to the Web, which is supposed to be fatal to [[TheVirus viruses]]. Megabyte had previously sent Bob to the Web back in season 2, so being sent to the Web himself is an ironic end, had he not survived via {{Retcon}}.
* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Reverse Cowgirl", has Clyde's mom being a bitch about her son leaving the toilet seat up. When Clyde once again leaves the seat up, [[TheCanKickedHim guess what happens.]]
* The BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheWitchsGhost'' gets DraggedOffToHell by the titular BiggerBad, [[EvilIsNotAToy which he himself summoned]].

* ''Film/GangRelated'': Detective Divinci ends up getting killed by Clyde David Dunner, a criminal whom he had previously arrested but walked free because Divinci switched the guns used as evidence to cover up his own complicity in an unrelated crime.

In Heaven's Feel he meets his end at the hands of [[spoiler:his own sister Sakura]] of all people when he tries to blackmail her into a position where he can [[spoiler: rape her]].

* After turning out to be NotQuiteDead toward the end of ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheDiamondCastle'', Lydia attempts to turn the [[TheHero heroines]] to stone with a magic spell, only for the spell to be [[DeflectorShields turned on her]] instead.
* Most episodes of ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest'' TOS in which a {{Villain}} died.
** All of the examples in [[HoistByHisOwnPetard/WesternAnimation Hoist By His Own Petard]] ''except'' "Arctic Splashdown", "Mystery of the Lizard Men" and "Pirates from Below."
** "Arctic Splashdown". While trying to murder Dr. Quest, the BigBad is blown up by the SelfDestructMechanism of the rocket whose guidance control he was trying to steal.
** "Riddle of the Gold":
*** An assassin named Ali is killed by a tiger released by the villains while trying to assassinate Dr. Quest.
*** The {{Villain}} working for Dr. Zin is killed by the leopard pet of the man he murdered earlier.
** "Calcutta Adventure". The enemy {{Mook}} pilot strafing the Quests is killed when his plane runs into some trees, has its wings ripped off and crashes.
** "Shadow of the Condor". The BigBad likes to shoot condors who live near his castle in the Andes. As he's trying to shoot down and kill Race Bannon in an aerial duel, a condor attacks his plane in revenge and causes him to crash into a mountainside.
** "Turu the Terrible". The BigBad is killed while trying to save the titular pteranodon he used to terrorize and enslave native workers.
** "Monster in the Monastery". A group of {{Mooks}} masquerading as yeti (who tried to murder Jonny and Hadji) are killed by a real yeti who's angry about the impersonation.
** "The Fraudulent Volcano". A group of enemy {{mooks}} flying in hover platforms ram into a cliff and blow up while trying to kill the Quests.
** "House of the Seven Gargoyles". Dietrich (the dwarf masquerading as a gargoyle) is murdered by his boss Ivar.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'':
** Played straight in the unedited version, in which the Joker is fatally shot by a young Tim Drake, temporarily unhinged by the Joker's mental and physical tortures. Largely averted in the edited-for-kiddies version, where his death is a not-very-ironic accident. In any case, the Joker himself denies it:
-->'''Joker:''' [[FamousLastWords That's not funny. That's not...]]
** Joker ends up suffering this ''twice'', after using a small device on Tim's neck to inject his own DNA and turn Tim into the new Joker. The new Batman puts a permanent stop to him by destroying the device with one of the Joker's own electrocuting buzzers.
* ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride''. Barkis Bittern, who lured Emily to her doom so many years ago for her money and then attempted to do the same to Victoria, makes a sneering toast to her at her and Victor's interrupted wedding ceremony and downs the goblet of poisoned wine that Victor was going to (willingly) drink. Once dead, he is left at the mercy of enraged corpses.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'':
** Joe Chill, killer of Bruce's parents, dies this way. It's lampshaded and justified soon afterwards:
-->'''Phantom Stranger''': Ultimately it was karma that delivered the final blow to Joe Chill. ...Funny how Chill just happened to be under that crumbling ceiling when it came down.
-->'''Spectre''': I wouldn't know anything about that...
** Also, in the series finale, [[spoiler: Batmite succeeds in getting the show cancelled for a DarkerAndEdgier one, but as a light-hearted and silly character, there's no room for him in the new show, and he is erased from existence.]]
* Megabyte in ''WesternAnimation/{{Reboot}}'' had this happen to him in season 3, though he ended up NotQuiteDead in season 4. After being spared by Matrix Megabyte tries to escape to the Supercomputer, but Mouse changes the portal's destination to the Web, which is supposed to be fatal to [[TheVirus viruses]]. Megabyte had previously sent Bob to the Web back in season 2, so being sent to the Web himself is an ironic end, had he not survived via {{Retcon}}.
* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Reverse Cowgirl", has Clyde's mom being a bitch about her son leaving the toilet seat up. When Clyde once again leaves the seat up, [[TheCanKickedHim guess what happens.]]
* The BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheWitchsGhost'' gets DraggedOffToHell by the titular BiggerBad, [[EvilIsNotAToy which he himself summoned]].

to:

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' has this happen oh-so-satisfyingly to [[spoiler: Shinji Matou]] in two of the three routes. In Fate it takes the form of fleeing the scene of [[spoiler: Rider's annihilation at the hands of Saber and Excalibur]] only to run into Ilya and Berserker. In Heaven's Feel he meets his end at the hands of [[spoiler:his own sister Sakura]] of all people when he tries to blackmail her into a position where he can [[spoiler: rape her]]. For practically the millionth time. In Unlimited Blade Works, he doesn't die, but [[BodyHorror he might as well have]].
* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'': 9 years ago, [[spoiler: Ace threw Akane into the incinerator. ForScience In the "Safe" ending, he gets his comeuppance in the very same room and [[KillItWithFire burns]]]].
** In [[VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward the sequel]], on K's path, Dio is placed into a treatment pod for security reasons after it's revealed he killed the old woman. Sigma and Phi come back later to find that he asphyxiated because the oxygen supply was cut off by K.
* During Arcueid's route in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', a combination of factors make Shiki go briefly insane and sexually assault a drastically-weakened Arcueid. The player can choose whether Shiki gets a hold of himself, or gives in to his desire and rapes her. The correct choice, [[CaptainObvious naturally]], is to stop; the next night, Arcueid has another spasm and tries to drink Shiki's blood...[[spoiler:and hesitates, long enough for Ciel to come to Shiki's rescue]]. If [[MoralEventHorizon Shiki gave in to his dark side and raped her]], on the other hand, Arcueid doesn't hold back, either...
* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' has a good number of these, as to be expected. Most of them are execution scenes, but some of the murders count as well.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* In ''[[WebComic/AntiHeroes anti-HEROES]]'', the [[http://ah.indolents.com/comic/128 lich Finx]], [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this moments before his demise.
* The [[http://goblinscomic.com/d/20080110.html Fat Guard]] at the claws and beak of [[FluffyTheTerrible Fluffles]] in ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}''. His plan was to, through [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil months of agonizing torture]], turn it into a killing machine that would fight for Brassmoon. Well, he got the first part right...
* ''Webcomic/TheWotch'': Natasha Dahlet of DOLLY is turned into a dolly.
* In ''Webcomic/SamAndFuzzy'', this trope is double subverted. Mr. Blank looks like he'll be setting it up when he is dangling from the side of a flying skyscraper and proclaims that [[NiceGuy Sam]] [[SaveTheVillain doesn't have it in him to let him fall]] -- only to be proven wrong when Sam steps aside and lets [[HeroicComedicSociopath Fuzzy]] unceremoniously kick him off. As it turns out, this didn't take and Blank is later seen climbing up the side of the skyscraper -- only to be hit by the corpse of a man he murdered in cold blood earlier on in the arc, loose his footing, and fall off the building to his death together with the corpse.
* ''Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl'' has, from its bonus comic alternate universe Disaster Dominos comic, Kizuna, who, after murdering several students, dies of the bloodborne disease one of them carried. It isn't present in the main series. Yet.
* The titular business of ''Webcomic/SuicideForHire'' runs on helping people bring karmic deaths onto themselves.
* In ''Webcomic/TheKennyChronicles'' Kenny and Funky's feud started when Funky made a porno of Kenny and his girlfriend having sex in a dumpster. A year later Funky fell six stories into a dumpster (a complete accident, though his friends think Kenny is somehow responsible).
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': After making his FaceHeelTurn, Eridan kills Kanaya with the magic wand she made for him. That's not the karmic death. That comes when after Kanaya comes back as a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Rainbow Drinker]], she snaps said wand in half, then tears her killer a new one [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe with a]] '''chainsaw'''.
** This is also one of two ways a player that has reached Godtier can be permanently killed (the other being a HeroicSacrifice), as Vriska finds out.
* In the space arc of ''Webcomic/ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'' the False Guenevere's mysterious illness is clone degradation. The karmic bit is that it is excerbated by the spells she casts to prevent Arthur realising she's not the real Guenevere.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'':
** Tsukiko is a necromancer who believes that HumansAreBastards, and that inversely, the [[InsaneTrollLogic undead are misunderstood people]] who are better than them. However, in the end, Redcloak proves her wrong by taking control of her wights -- while describing the undead as mere "tools" and "weapons" -- and having them drain her to death and eat the body. Believe it or not, it's actually pretty sympathetic, as evidenced by this exchange:
-->'''Demon Roach''': What's wrong with you?
-->'''Monster in the Darkness''': I guess I'm sad. I mean, [[IJustWantToBeLoved Tsukiko just wanted to be loved]].
-->'''Demon Roach''': So? No one cares.
-->'''Monster in the Darkness''': I know. That's why I'm sad.
** Yukyuk, Belkar's third EvilCounterpart in the Linear Guild, made his [[EstablishingCharacterMoment debut]] by trying to kill [[TeamPet Mr. Scruffy]] for [[KickTheDog no reason]]. After being mentally dominated by Vaarsuvius for a while, he ends up being killed in an attack by his own teammates, while Mr. Scruffy uses him as a body shield.
* In ''Webcomic/TheGreatestGift'', Neptune, the father of Venus (Jupiter) and Astra (the ''real'' Venus), was Venus' PredecessorVillain and absolutely ruthless mob boss of Las Haygas. In the end, he ends up short changing an assassin he hired to kill a rival mob boss, who kills him in revenge.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Jack O'Connor of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' cheats in a TenPacesAndTurn duel, only to find his opponent (Adam Dodd) had been walking down a slope (something of a DeusExMachina). Jack shooting early allows Adam time to find his aim and fatally wound Jack to win the fight ''and'' v1. This also apparently makes the fact that Adam was ''planning'' on cheating okay simply because Jack tried it earlier.
** Laeil Burbank's first kill (and, in fact, first ''scene'' in V3,) involves her torturing her helpless cousin, leaving him begging for mercy before killing. Of course, it's only fitting that her death involves a helpless Laeil getting horribly tortured and left to die, also begging for mercy.
*** It's also a rare case of a Karmic Death where one can feel [[{{Tearjerker}} sympathy]] for the victim, mostly because her cousin was a dickweed, she had something of a temporary MoralityPet in both Jimmy Trejo and Eddie Sullivan, and the guy who tortured her, JR Rizzolo, was a monster. And there's also her tragic BackStory...
** In another example, [[RapeAsDrama rapist]] and [[MonsterMisogyny literal lady-killer]] Adam Reeves has a two-for-one when he gets his nuts blown off right before his death at the hands of Alexis Machina.
* ''WebAnimation/TheAccuser'': That's what Dr. Pirot gets for helping a serial killer to survive execution.
* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' Vol. 3, Episode 11 "Heroes and Monsters", Roman Torchwick has Ruby Rose on the ropes, trying to give her a BreakingSpeech while hitting her with his cane. He's busy trying to wreck her idealistic views, claiming that the world is a cold harsh place that has no place for her and that he'll keep living. Unfortunately for him, his nihilistic views is a gigantic "Eat me!" sign for the Grimm and he promptly gets munched on by one.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony'', in "The Glass Princess", the Raptorians get turned into glass.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', "Knock It Off" features one-shot villain [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Dick Hardly]], who mass-produces shoddy clones of the Girls for financial gain. When confronted by the girls, he literally ''swallows'' an entire bottle of Chemical X, [[OneWingedAngel turning him into a monster]]. He is soon afterward killed when [[TheDogBitesBack his clones turn against him]] and [[CollapsingLair his factory falls on top of him]].
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':
** During a battle with his brother Orm in the aquatic underground, ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} has Orm hanging off a frozen cliff, begging his brother to have mercy. After he said "You're weak! You're not fit to...(slips)" (Had the sentenced have been finished, he would have likely said "rule"). Aquaman stares, walks up to Orm while he hanging on the cliff, extends his hand and... picks up his trident, leaving Orm to fall to this death.
--> '''Aquaman''': I believe this is mine.
** It's worth considering that Orm threatened Aquaman's son earlier. Clearly, that's one heck of a BerserkButton.
** Another example (although Superman didn't know it at the time), was in "Twilight of the Gods", with Darkseid dying when Brainiac's home-base overloaded in his aim to search for the Anti-Life Equation. Superman probably wouldn't have thought this was fitting death [[BrainwashedAndCrazy given what he did to him]] in their last encounter. Darkseid, who took a received end of a RoaringRampageOfRevenge seemed to find Karma's decision ''quite funny'' since Superman didn't finish him off, and spited him in his last word(s):
-->'''Darkseid''': Loser.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' features a slimy PR lady-slash-cult leader get squished by the very comet she tried to kill everyone with.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': Unalaq is killed by the very same spiritbending technique he used throughout the second arc and considering everything he did up to that point (banishing Tonraq, putting Tonraq in jail, manipulating Korra, putting Jinora into a comatose state, treating his own son as a liability, destroying Korra's link with her past lives, nearly destroying the world etc) he definitely got what was coming to him.
** In Season 3, the Earth Queen had been enslaving airbenders and eating baby sky bison. She is assassinated by Zaheer using airbending by asphyxiation.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** [[ThouShaltNotKill Aang]] actually sits down and discusses this trope with Avatar Kyoshi, no doubt hoping his upcoming battle with Fire Lord Ozai could end the same way as her battle with Chin the Conqueror.
--->'''Aang''': But you didn't really kill Chin. Technically, he [[DisneyVillainDeath fell to his own doom]] because he was too stubborn to get out of the way.\\
'''Kyoshi''': Personally, I don't really see the difference. But I assure you, I would have done whatever it took to stop Chin.
** Also, Zhao's death was a combination of this and HoistByHisOwnPetard.
*** [[spoiler: Actually in ''Legend of Korra'' we find out Zhao has been placed in a spirit world prison [[FateWorseThanDeath where he is unable to die and has gone insane]]]].

** Greyfield/Sigismundo gets one as well. He attempts to surrender to [[DeadpanSnarker Lin]] to avoid being killed. Lin shoots him anyways.
