* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'': At the end of ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Arkham City]]'', SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker dies as a result of his Titan poisoning. In the post-''Arkham City'' comic series ''Arkham City: End Game'', and the opening cinematic of ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight Arkham Knight]]'', Batman, taking into account such things as Ra's al Ghul's Lazarus Pits, has the Joker's body cremated to ensure he'll never come back. [[spoiler: Naturally, this STILL isn't enough - having infected Batman with his Titan-tainted blood, the Joker returns as an evil "hallucination" and tries to take over his body.]]

* ''VideoGame/CompanyOfHeroes'' has soldiers randomly be incapacitated and writhing on the ground, when "killed", potentially allowing allied medics to save them to eventually grant their player a free infantry squad. The player's enemies can put a stop to this by firing area-of-effect abilities and weapons at the helpless troops. The game's sequel removed medics saving incapacitated casualties, but additionally added incapacitated soldiers crawling around on the ground granting a good amount of line-of-sight around them for their commander while adding the feature for ''all'' armed units to be able to just shoot at dying casualties to prevent enemies getting a look at allied units' movements.

* This is done in a kaiju fight in ''Film/PacificRim'' by a pilot who lost his brother to a kaiju who hadn't really been dead years before and didn't want to repeat the mistake. "Let's check for a pulse to be sure." ''(BANG BANG BANG)'' "Yup, no pulse."

* In [=EP6=] of ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', [[spoiler:Erika, unable to invoke detective's authority to determine that the "corpses" she investigated were dead or alive, decided to guarantee their death in a different way: by [[OffWithHisHead beheading]] them]].
** Note that [[spoiler: the 'corpses' were alive and just were people playing dead to play a trick on Erika. But due to Knox's Sevent preventing the detective from being the killer, the story is changed so that they were dead beforehand. Doesn't change the fact she [[MoralEventHorizon killed five people for no reason]] if you don't take story conventions into account.]]

* At his debut in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Happosai calls out Genma and Soun for failing to do this to him when they decided to get rid of him. Considering that, after getting him so drunk he passed out, Genma and Soun had sealed him up in a barrel, chained it up, hurled it into a cave, tossed a sizable bundle of lit dynamite inside with him, then closed up the cave with a massive boulder wrapped in a [[ZigzagPaperTassel shimenawa]] before it exploded, their oversight may be excusable as them not realizing Happosai was THAT tough.

* ''Film/TheMatrix'': Having just shot Neo, Agent Smith orders another Agent to check him. The other Agent checks his pulse, confirms he's "gone"...and then Neo comes back to life anyway.



** At the end of [[VideoGame/MassEffect1 the first game]], Shepard orders this on [[spoiler: Saren]] after the latter [[spoiler: either falls in battle with your squad or commits suicide.]] Depending on what companion does it they'll interpret it as either "scan his vitals" or "put a bullet in him". [[spoiler: Subverted when Sovereign reanimates Saren's corpse as a husk, even after one of your party members plugs him in the head one more time.]]

* Although the exact details are disputed, there was a famous confrontation between Robert the Bruce (future King Robert I of Scotland) and his rival John Comyn, who at that point were the only two realistic choices for the throne of Scotland. The two had chosen to meet at a church, in the assumption that it would be truce ground and there could be no outbreak of violence, but nonetheless things got violent between them and Robert stabbed Comyn. Robert then left the church, reportedly saying, perhaps in a MyGodWhatHaveIDone mode, "I'm afraid I have killed Comyn!" His ally and distant cousin, Roger de Kirkpatrick, replied "I'll make sure" and went into the church, and when he found Comyn wounded but alive, Kirkpatrick finished the job. When Robert was crowned weeks afterward, he granted titles and lands to Kirkpatrick, who chose "I make sure" as his [[FactionMotto family motto]].
