* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' has marines Chips Dubbo and Pete Stacker, the former being extremely recognizable by his Australian accent, who both survive to the ending of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' (with Stacker also showing up in ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'', ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', and ''VideoGame/{{ Halo 4}}''). Not to mention Sergeant Johnson, who in the [[VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved first game]] was likely meant to be a RedShirt. Then Creator/{{Bungie}} realized [[EnsembleDarkhorse how much people liked him]], and a {{Retcon}} in the sequel novel ''Literature/HaloFirstStrike'' got him off Halo alive.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is filled with characters who are given a little characterization and then killed off. As with the above example, [[AnyoneCanDie Anyone Can (And Usually Will) Die]]. Notable examples include the 104th Trainees killed during the "[[CurbStompBattle Battle]]" of Trost, and several members of the Survey Corps.

As with The body count for the above example, [[AnyoneCanDie Anyone Can (And Usually Will) Die]]. Notable examples include story is quite high, but almost all deaths consist of these generally inconsequential characters who are often touted as experts or veterans yet drop like flies while the 104th Trainees killed during the "[[CurbStompBattle Battle]]" of Trost, main cast stays nice and several members of the Survey Corps.safe.

** They mocked another newcomer, who they called Texas, the same way at the start of one episode but both times they were kind of wrong and kind of right. [[spoiler: Scott Hall managed to survive the CurbStompBattle with Brock Sampson but became jaded and bitter with everyone's WhatMeasureIsAMook attitude, so he changes his name to Henchman #0 and becomes the [[MonsterOfTheWeek villain of the week]] in the episode "Any Which Way But Zeus" where he manipulated an OldSuperhero into capturing a bunch of other red shirts and mauve shirts and forcing them into GladiatorGames eventually trying to confront Henchman #24 personaly, unfortunately for him Henchman #24 had [[TookALevelInBadass taken a level in badass]] by then and [[TheDogBitesBack "Zeus" had freed all of the prisoners]]. After this he joins The {{Revenge}} Society where he drop the henchman from his name and repeatedly insists he's not a {{Mook}} anymore unfortunately to spite his claims he ends up being unceremoniously killed by Brock Sampson as 21 and 24 had originally predicted. as for "Texas" they were right and he was quickly killed by Brock Sampson but is then revived as [[FrankensteinsMonster "Venturestein".]]]]

* One of the ''Anime/{{K}}'' prequel side novels follows Takeru Kusuhara, a police officer who sees the Blue Clan, Scepter 4, in action and decides to join them. The novel is entirely from his point of view, and in the end, he dies taking a bullet for the Blue King. In later prequel manga, other Blue Clansmen remember him and comment on his short time with them.

Added DiffLines:

* A good example of this would be Bob, Agent of HYDRA an EnsembleDarkhorse from Comicbook/{{Cable}} and SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}, Deadpool quickly to an interest in him to spite the fact that (or because) he has no last name, a generic first name and looks like a typical {{Mook}}. This was brilliantly parodied in a later issue when a HYDRA agent Deadpool thought was Bob turned out to be a different agent called Bob Oppenheim who Deadpool promptly kills to cover his tracks.
** played with in [[Film/{{Deadpool}} the movie]] where Bob is only seen for about five seconds before being knocked out by Deadpool seemingly surviving the final battle.
** In another comic Deadpool meets a {{Mook}} working for A.I.M who he mistakes for Bob only to be told his name is Bill.


Added DiffLines:

** Parodied in "A Good Man Goes To War" with Fat One and Fit One to WrongGenreSavvy soldiers who seemed to exist solely for the purpose of proving AnyoneCanDie as they incorrectly believed they weren't red shirts because they weren't generic enough, it says a lot that they were given a chance to [[NominalImportance say their names but refused]].

** Before henchman 21 and 24 there was Speedy from the very first episode the fact that a henchman had a name and a personality but was still quickly killed of should show what [[DarkerAndEdgier kind of show this is]]
