** Principal Flutie wasn't introduced in The Pack; he was in the first four episodes. Thus his death has more impact than previous ones.

** Makes this a SubvertedTrope with Private Ross Jenkins. He gets a name, a bit of a personality in "The Sontaran Strategem". He is killed in the second part, "The Poison Sky". He managed to get a rather large following on [[Website/OutpostGallifrey The Doctor Who Forum]] and a fan club there: Private Ross Jenkins' Widows. The Doctor even shouts about his death angrily, which is more than some of his old companions got when they left the show alive.
** In the new series of ''Doctor Who'', nearly any person who is given a name and a bit of sympathy for the Doctor and his companions dies. [[spoiler: Davros]] {{lampshade|Hanging}}s this in ''Journey's End''.

** Don't get too attached to any of the named characters who get characterization and accompany Lone Wolf on any of his adventures. If they stick around for more than a few page turns, chances are they're going to die horribly. Depending on the path taken, examples of ill-fated Mauve Shirts can be found in Books 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, and 18. In other words, more than half the series. The guy's called "Lone Wolf" for a reason. There are exceptions, however, notably Vakeros Warrior Paido, Guildmaster Banedon and Captain Prarg. If one of them happens to die while they accompany Lone Wolf, the hero meets his end shortly thereafter (making these books somewhat {{Escort Mission}}s). [[spoiler:The three of them get captured by the enemy at some point, but are later rescued by Lone Wolf.]] Sadly, [[spoiler:Paido isn't an exception to the end. He is killed off-screen by Gnaag at the end of Book 10. Lone Wolf learns this in Book 20 when he finds Paido's soul being tortured in the Plane of Darkness. Ouch]].

Chromatic issues aside, the Mauve Shirt is a former RedShirt who has managed to get enough [[CharacterDevelopment screen time]] and lines to make him stand out from the rank and file, but not enough to be part of the main cast. It can also be accomplished by showing [[FatalFamilyPhoto pictures]] of a [[IHaveAFamily spouse or baby]] (Be careful with that, as it's TemptingFate [[{{Retirony}} all by itself]]), personal quirks, or just plain old [[NominalImportance giving them a name]] (whole or in part). The advantage to this is that they're less likely to be killed senselessly, because [[RuleOfEmpathy the audience cares for them]] and it would hit harder than some faceless redshirt no one cares about. The downside is that, since their death would now have more emotional impact, they are ''[[{{Retirony}} more]]'' likely to be KilledOffForReal to [[SacrificialLion prove how bad]] the [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil new villain is]]. If they're successful enough, they just might [[AscendedExtra graduate]] from Mauve Shirt and become a "Gold Shirt" as part of the [[{{Ensembles}} supporting cast]] or even the [[PlotArmor main cast]].

* In the second ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken Franchise/StarWars'' specials one sketch features a stormtrooper named Gary bringing his daughter along during the opening battle of ''Film/ANewHope''. He ends up so memorable and popular that he plays a prominent role in the third special (namely, [[spoiler:accidentally causing the fire that killed Owen and Beru]]).

* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 2: Echoes'' features several Galactic Federation troopers. While they're all [[PosthumousCharacter dead on arrival]], scanning their corpses reveals their logs, a portion of their character, and their lives and interactions before their deaths--there's the one who's gone crazy, there's the cynical snarker, there's the StrawFeminist type who idolizes Samus, etc.

* ''{{Macross}}'' has Hayao Kakizaki and to a larger extent, Maximillian Jenius (Ben Dixon and Max Sterling in ''{{Robotech}}''). Both are given distinctive personalities from the very beginning but frequently get pushed to the sidelines when it's time to focus on the LoveTriangle. They often show up in episodes and have no dialogue or just one line. Despite the fact that Max survives the series, is undoubtedly the most skilled pilot of the cast, and is involved in a milestone plot development (his marriage to Zentraedi Mirya), he gets mostly ignored in later episodes yet again due to the need to resolve the Love Triangle between the main characters. Ironically, Max is the only human character from the original series to show up in sequel (such as ''Macross7'') while the main characters have faded into obscurity.

* ''Film/TheRaid'': The Police Squad gets whittled down to its core members pretty quickly when the gangsters counterattack, and few are left alive. Among them Bowo, an irritable officer with a dislike of protagonist Rama, who survives with a damaged ear and stomach wound. Rama takes him to a safe place, and he spends the rest of the movie out of commission. Dagu, a fairly quiet officer, also makes it out, and even gets in on the impressive fight scenes with the other leads, showing off his knowledge of taekwondo to contrast the other's silat fighting. [[spoiler:Bowo is one of the few officers to survive the movie while Dagu is cruelly shot in the head by a DirtyCop]].

** Interestingly enough, in that book, another path can lead to never meeting Prarg, instead taking the leader of TheResistance Sebb Jarel as a guide. Sebb dies almost midway to escorting Lone Wolf.

* ''Series/TheShield'': Detective Ronnie Gardocki had no dialogue in the series pilot, and the actor who portrays him went uncredited. He appeared in about half of the episodes in the first season, and was a "recurring character" up through season four. According to Wiki/ThatOtherWiki, fans originally suspected he would become a redshirt, and the series writers even toyed with this idea in season 2. However, he survived and graduated to a regular cast member in the last three seasons, becoming increasingly important as the series went on.

** Even the {{Trope Maker|s}} for the RedShirt had one bonafide Mauve Shirt - Lieutenant Kyle, who appeared in more episodes than [[BridgeBunny Yeoman Rand]], always had dialogue, even if it was just a MandatoryLine, and holds the distinction of being the ''only'' RedShirt to have a consistent position on the ''Enterprise'': Transporter Chief. (Yes, ''Kyle'' was the transporter chief, [[BeamMeUpScotty not Scotty]]). He even got to help save the day a couple of times (most notably in "The Doomsday Machine" and "Mirror, Mirror"). He also has a knack for appearing in good episodes, and even made [[TheCameo a cameo]] in the best of the ''movies'' (that's him as the Communications Officer onboard ''[[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan Reliant]]'').

** The ship's original security chief, Tasha Yar, was introduced with oodles of backstory and a wide skillset. Unfortunately, the show had far too many cast members, and Tasha was relegated to a BridgeBunny and sometimes-DamselInDistress. Denise Crosby was released from the show soon thereafter, killed by the titular "Skin of Evil." The only reason she doesn't qualify as Dead Star Walking is that she lasted almost a season.

* In ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' if you're a Judge and not named Dredd, Anderson, or Hershey your chances of making it to the end of the story alive are not very good. They are better than unnamed Judges or civilians though, it's a matter of whether Dredd needs someone to talk to the entire way through.

* The ''Side: Despair'' portion of ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' reveals ''the whole Hope's Peak Student Council'' to be this. Mere minutes after we learn their names and what they actually looked like, we're treated to a montage of the group slaughtering each other in a panic-fueled frenzy. We even see bits of character from each of them before they die. Sato and Natsumi also fit the bill, as they were killed off at the end of the very episode they were introduced in. Granted, these characters were DoomedByCanon due to ''Side: Despair'' being a prequel to the first two games, but even then they died quicker than the audience would have thought.
