* 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).

* The last issue of [[ComicBook/{{Fables}} Jack of Fables]] kills off everyone but the [[InfantImmortality baby]] and the [[BlackDudeDiesFirst black guy]].

* 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.

** In ''Film/{{Rogue One}}'', [[spoiler: all the newly introduced characters, with the possible exception of General Draven, who is never seen leaving Yavin to participate in the climactic battle, are [[HeroicSacrifice killed getting the Death Star plans to the Rebel fleet]]. In fact, the only character on the poster who survives is Darth Vader]].

* According to Creator/TetsuyaNomura, at one point in development in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Creator/HironobuSakaguchi and Creator/KazushigeNojima both wanted to kill off every character in the party apart from Cloud and the two other party members the player brings with them. According to them, they were getting pretty excited until Nomura managed to talk them out of it, saying it would rob Aeris's death of its impact.

* In ''VideoGame/Code7'', this is the objective of BigBad S.O.L.I. Considering that everyone but Sam and Alex [[spoiler: well, actually ''only Sam]] is dead, he's quite good at it as well.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Nine}}''. First, humanity is, apparently, completely wiped out. Then, the only two explicitly named human characters die, one before the movie even begins. ''Then'', all of the stitchpunks, except 3, 4, 7 and 9, die along the course of the film. Granted, the ending itself [[BittersweetEnding isn't all that bleak]], but that doesn't mitigate the loss of life.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster''. During the musical piece, "Worthless," ALL of the cars singing the main parts die. Granted, this is because they're singing AS they're being carried to their deaths.
* ''Anime/FinalFantasyTheSpiritsWithin'' is a prized one. Only two characters survive at the end: Aki Ross (the main character) and Dr. Sid. All the other characters are killed by phantoms except Major Elliot (who gets shot) and General Hein, the antagonist, who is blown up inside his ship.

* The ''Film/FinalDestination'' series. The survivor of the first movie gets killed in the second and the survivors of the second one all survive the BBQ finale, with a RedShirt biting the dust instead, but are said to be dead at the end of the third one. The third movie decides to not waste time and kills everyone in a somewhat ambiguous ending. The next movies kill off all of the characters explicitly and graphically, including the main protagonists.

The next movies kill off all of fourth film is even less ambiguous, showing the main characters explicitly getting killed by a runaway truck plowing into a cafe, complete with X-ray shots of their bones breaking. The fifth and graphically, including final installment goes the main protagonists.extra mile with the added twist of having the entire film be a [[StealthSequel Stealth Prequel]], culminating in the surviving characters dying in the airplane disaster that opened the first film!


Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/FoundFootage3D'', a {{mockumentary}} parody of [[FoundFootageFilms found-footage horror films]], refers to this as the first rule of found footage, chiefly as the justification for the "found" part -- nobody was left alive to bring it back, and it was only recovered later by the search party. The film that the main characters are shooting, ''Spectre of Death [=3D=]'', plays this straight; the fact that Derek is [[WagTheDirector trying to rewrite the script]] so that his character lives in the end is a sign of [[ThePrimaDonna his growing diva behavior]]. True to form, the film itself plays this straight, too, with Amy lampshading the "first rule" [[spoiler:just as her DemonicPossession kicks back in and she kills Mark]].

* In a series where very few people from mooks on up are ever KilledOffForReal, OnePiece has this happen in two Straw Hat's back-stories: Nico Robin was the sole survivor of the population of her home island, the population was purged beyond just the academics who could read the illegal glyphs, but the entire population because of the mere possibility that some academics escaped and were hiding among the general populace. All of Brook's friends died a slow death by poisoning as they recorded their last song as a group, dying off as the song was played. Brook's back-story takes it UpToEleven, because even ''he'' didn't survive his own KillEmAll backstory. He just had a power that let him come back.
