** League also has neutral objectives: the Red Brambleback, Blue Sentinel, Elemental Drakes, Baron Nashor, and Elder Dragon. Because the benefit of these buffs goes to the team/player who dealt the last hit, if one team/player is fighting one of these , the enemy jungler and/or mage may go for a "miracle steal" by unloading their Smite summoner spell or full combo onto the neutral objective in question to steal it from the enemy team.

* This is what sets off the "versus" in ''Film/FreddyVsJason'', as seen in the quote. Freddy resurrects Jason and sends him to Elm Street, hoping that Jason's rampage will provide him with a fresh source of fear. Everything goes as planned right up until Jason stabs one of Freddy's sleeping victims before he could kill her himself.
* Not directly stealing, but Alice doing this to Jill at a few points in ''Film/ResidentEvilApocalypse'' is a major reason she's considered a CanonSue. [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/phelous/13379-reap See Phelous's reaction to them here]].

* The Freespace series avoids or at least downplays this, as, regardless of who gets the last shot in, kills are always awarded to the ship that did the most damage to the target.

* You can do this in ''AnarchyReigns'' without consequences (other than a pissed-off player). Considering it's anarchy, there's no rules to stop you from doing so either, and the game even encourages you for doing it by giving you bonus points.

In general, kill stealing in video games will refer to a combat oriented online game, and the actual act is killing an almost-dead enemy whose health has been whittled down by another player. It is often seen as a dishonorable act by other players, leading to cries of "StopHelpingMe". However, there are a few cases where it is helpful, such as an MMORPG where a higher level player "trains" a lower level ally by allowing them to do this.
