* In ''MagicTheGathering'', Volrath, the BigBad (actually TheDragon, but for all intents and purposes) of the Weatherlight saga is missing and presumed dead after a climactic showdown near the end of the first half of the story. When he reappears midway through the second half, in sufficiently badass and grandiose fashion, it's only to be killed in a one on one duel to the death by [[spoiler: Crovax]], who becomes the new Ascendent Evincar.

** The old Daleks allow themselves to be killed by the new Paradigm ones in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryoftheDaleks "Victory of the Daleks"]], agreeing that they're impure and should be destroyed.

** The old Daleks allow themselves to be killed by the new Paradigm ones in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E3VictoryoftheDaleks "Victory of the Daleks"]], agreeing that they're impure and should be destroyed. This doesn't actually stick, however, due to the redesign meeting near-universal scorn: the [=RTD=]-era models have remained the standard ever since.

* Subverted in season 4 of WesternAnimation/TeenTitans, where season 1 and 2 BigBad [[DiabolicalMastermind Slade]], after being DemotedToDragon for the whole season following a DealWithTheDevil, is apparently double-crossed and disposed of by his boss [[{{Satan}} Trigon]]. Turns out Slade [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy saw it coming]] and [[CrazyPrepared made sure he would be able to escape]], allowing him to make an EnemyMine with the heroes and to get what he wanted from all of this. By the end of the season, Slade is alive and free to scheme again, while Trigon has been obliterated by his daughter.

* In the second season of WesternAnimation/{{Wander Over Yonder}} Lord Dominator makes her first appearance. [[PsychopathicManchild Lord Hater]], the [[BigBad Big Bad]] of the entirety of Season 1 had been for the most part a [[HarmlessVillain Harmless Villain]], at least for the main characters Wander and Sylvia whom he never managed to seriously threaten (despite his fervent wishes of torturing and killing them). However, until that point he had been introduced as a serious threat for the rest of the galaxy, [[GalacticConqueror taking over planet after planet]] trying to prove himself as "The Greatest in the Galaxy", with the help of his second in command [[TheDragon Commander Peepers]] and his army of [[PunchClockVillain Watchdogs]]. Cue to [[KnightOfCerebus Lord Dominator]]. Her first action in the series proper is [[DynamicEntry using her giant ship to slice Hater's ship in two with a gigantic drill]]. From that moment on she takes the role as the show's [[BigBad Big Bad]], dethroning Hater as the Greatest in the Galaxy by overdoing him in every possible way. Hater has an [[PunchClockVillain army of friendly and usually incompetent Watchdogs]]? Dominator has an army of [[MechaMooks highly efficient robots]] which provide a such a great physical threat that not even [[LightningBruiser Sylvia]] can punch them without hurting her hand. While Hater was mainly the image of his empire, showing up for conquests and defeating rival villains or heroes while Peepers was the brains keeping the Empire together, Dominator can manage her entire empire on her own. Hater was powerful enough to punch [[TheRival Emperor Awesome]] through a planet and take down his entire army by himself if [[ThePowerOfHate angered enough]]. Dominator can easily [[NoSell No Sell]] and [[CurbstompBattle Curbstomp]] Hater without much effort (although in their next encounter Hater [[TookALevelInBadass fights her so evenly]] that it is actually arguable that he could have beaten her if he hadn't gotten... [[LoveAtFirstSight distracted]] the moment he took her helmet off). She managed to climb to the top of the Villain Board in a record time and let´s say that her [[OmnicidalManiac final objective]] is bad enough to horrify [[EvenEvilHasStandards her fellow villains]].

* One of the first things Lord Siniestro did in The World Wrestling league was take Legio away from El Profe. Not long after this his direction lead to them traumatizing and hospitalizing El Niche of Los Rabiosos, though Rabiosos had become {{face}}s by default at that point.

* 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.
