** Steve Crosetti. Originally Jon Polito was PutOnABus because network executives felt he wasn't particularly photogenic and the cast needed more women characters, so they wrote out Crosetti and brought on Isabella Hofmann as Megan Russert. Then Polito said bad things about Tom Fontana and Creator/BarryLevinson, the show's producers. So they decided to kill Crosetti off instead. A rare example of Type #1 and Type #2, as Crosetti's death was a type of revenge, but it also allowed for a fair amount of drama.

* Dr. Laurel Weaver, the character played by actress Linda Fiorentino in ''Film/MenInBlack'' did not return in the movie's sequels, even after at the end of the first film she became J's new partner. The sequel [[Main/HandWave claims]] this happened because L decided to return to the morgue and requested J to neuralyze her. In reality, Fiorentino herself was quite hard to work with, according to the film's crew, and her character was removed.

** Type 1 happened with Clara Oswald, but in a '''very''' unconventional way. When Jenna Coleman decided to leave ''Who'' to topline ''Victoria'', Clara was KilledOffForReal at the end of "Face the Raven", the opening episode of the three-part Series 9 finale, and she then briefly appeared as a figment of the Doctor's imagination in "Heaven Sent". '''Then''' in the SeasonFinale "Hell Bent" the DrivenToMadness Doctor manages to pull her out of time at the moment just before she dies, rendering her OnlyMostlyDead but also risking the entire space-time continuum due to the RealityBreakingParadox this creates. At the end, she and the Doctor agree they must part ways for good (he losing his key emotional/physical memories of her) and she decides to use a second TARDIS stolen in the course of events to return to her death "the long way 'round", having new offscreen adventures as a functional immortal! Clara's "Face the Raven" death remains a fixed point in time that she'll have to go through eventually, lest the universe be destroyed, but this still leaves an opening for her to appear in the show again at some point down the line.

While this means Clara ''could'' return to the show at a future date -- possibly in Twelve's final story -- her "Face the Raven" death remains a fixed point in time that she'll have to go through eventually, lest the universe be destroyed.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': The Sixth Doctor's regeneration into the seventh was an obvious type 2, as BBC head Michael Grade hated Colin Baker's performance. The bad blood was apparently mutual, as Baker refused to do any kind of send-off. He was [[FakeShemp Shemped]] for the ColdOpen of Season 24, where he was offed by a mere TapOnTheHead.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Kempe William Kempe]], who appeared in some of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's plays in comedic roles, was perhaps best known as the original Falstaff in ''HenryIV'' and ''Theatre/TheMerryWivesOfWindsor'', as well as Nick Bottom in ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream''. At some point, he was removed from Shakespeare's theatrical company, perhaps having had a falling-out with either Shakespeare or Richard Burbage. After Kempe's departure from the company, Falstaff died off-stage in ''HenryV''.

* Played for laughs in ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', after Trace Beaulieu left the show, it was revealed at the beginning of Season 8 that his character Dr. Clayton Forrester was killed offscreen by his own mother. Done as a sort of parody of Type 1, and not out of any real bitterness--Trace continues to be good friends with much of the cast, including his Crow replacement Bill Corbett, to this day. They were able to set this one up in advance since they knew Beaulieu would be leaving; the finale of Season 7 has Forrester get turned into a [[TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey star child]] and his mother gushing over being given a second chance to raise him right. When Pearl shows up in Season 8, she remarks that despite her attempts Clayton still went evil, so she killed him.
