* Aeris from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is a classic example of this trope. If Cloud's anger doesn't count, the millions of players hucking [=PS1=] controllers around when they found out [[GameplayAndStorySegregation a Phoenix Down doesn't help]] probably does.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs: Nearly happened once to the Smurf's CuteMute elf friend, Laconia, in "Stop and Smurf the Roses." Chllohydrous, one of several enemies of the Smurfs, is annoyed over Laconia and, upon realizing that flowers are her life-sustaining source, sets out to wipe out all plant life on earth. Chllohydrous succeeds, but only temporarily, as Papa Smurf is able to -- after defeating the evil sorceress -- restore the flowers to health and revive Laconia. However, Papa's restoration magic does not happen until after the Smurfs hold a wake for Laconia and she is lies in state in the forest.

* Narrowly averted in the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' GrandFinale; Bill Cipher (in the height of his VillainousBreakdown) captures Dipper and Mabel and plans to kill one of them [[ForTheEvulz just for the heck of it]]. He is ''moments'' away from vaporizing Mabel (indicated by the symbol on his eye falling on "shooting star") when [[spoiler: Stan posing as]] Ford agrees to surrender.

* In the long-running and still-incomplete ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' DarkFic ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/9115681/chapters/20745478 Subduction]]'', Mako gets PressGanged by a [[FantasticRacism firebender supremacists' group]]. One of the other "recruits" is a [[OriginalCharacter sixteen-year-old boy named Yaozhu]], who's basically what you'd get if [[TheHeart Book 1 Bolin]] were a [[HavingABlast combustionbender]]; Mako almost predictably develops a BigBrotherInstinct for him [[spoiler:(only exacerbated after he's [[FakeKillScare led to believe that Bolin has been killed]])]] and plots to take the kid with him when he escapes. When they get caught due to TheVamp ratting Mako out, [[BigBad the firebender supremacists' leader]] first [[ColdBloodedTorture so thoroughly]] ''[[BreakTheCutie breaks]]'' Yaozhu that the poor kid can do nothing but [[MadnessMantra babble apologies]], then [[CruelAndUnusualDeath garrottes him with a chain]] in front of Mako and [[DishonoredDead leaves his body to rot where he fell]].

Occasionally coupled off with BreakTheCutie for extra gruesomeness. It's also part of the ideal behind the {{Ryona}} phenomenon: Killing off characters (usually female) in order to strike at the protective instincts of their fans. TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth is often used to justify this trope.

* YoshiyukiTomino's KillEmAll shows are overloaded with this. Non-cuties die plenty too, though. Just know that the FanNickname "Kill 'em All Tomino" is well-earned.

* ''Anime/ReCreators'': Of all the fictional characters that appear on the real world, [[spoiler:[[MagicalGirl Mamika Kirameki]]]] is the sweetest and nicest. She even takes the opportunity to hear [[BigBad Altair]]'s story and tries to [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre appeal to her better nature and get her to let go of her sadness and grief.]] Unfortunately, [[spoiler:Altair is too angry to listen to reason and brutally murders her.]]
