* One of ComicBook/{{Onslaught}}'s first actions was to beat TheJuggernaut to a pulp and hurl him all the way to New Jersey. [[spoiler: Mostly to get back as Juggernaut from the crap he did to Professor Xavier all their lives as Onslaught turned out to be Xavier's dark side run amok.]] At the time the issue was written the writers had no idea who or what Onslaught was, they just wanted to demonstrate he was a threat.

* For a brief period in the early '90s ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' comics, the main villains were the Upstarts, a group of bratty rich mutants who competed with each other to kill other mutants in a "contest" sponsored by an [[TheOmniscient omniscient]] mutant called the Gamesmaster; among the casualties numbered the Reavers, the Hellions, Sebastian Shaw, Emma Frost, Selene, and even Comicbook/{{Magneto}} himself. This plotline was not well received, all the dead villains but the Hellions came back, and most of the Upstarts ended up meeting ignominious ends themselves.

* Despite supplying the page quote, [[spoiler:Anakin killing Gunray and his minions]] in ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' is an inversion of this. It was a prequel after all, so it was more like Make Way for the Old Villains.

** Subverted in hindsight in the second game, where [[spoiler:Amon's agents]] scheme to help the heroes take down Kerrigan, since despite being the biggest villain at this point she is [[spoiler:the only one who can potentially ruin his plans]]. They do manage to considerably weaken her, but rather than be killed, she does a HeelFaceTurn, and eventually [[RedemptionPromotion becomes considerably more powerful than she ever was as a villain]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/StarCraft'' has multiple instances of this trope:
** [[TheFederation The Confederacy]], who were the main villains for most of the Terran campaign in the original game, are eventually obliterated when their political opponent Arcturus Mengsk unleashes the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Zerg Swarm]] on their home planet. This event mark the beginning of Mengsk's MoralEventHorizon, setting up his transition from pragmatic RebelLeader to TheEmperor and the franchise's [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters human]] BigBad.
** Mengsk himself suffers this in ''Brood War'', where the [[TheWarOfEarthlyAggression UED]] establish themselves as a threat by turning him into their punching bag for most of their campaign and eventually overthrowing him. He ''does'' eventually manage to get back in power however, and is still around by the second game, while the UED is obliterated at the end of ''Brood War''.
