** Direct eye contact with a basilisk will instantly kill the victim. Indirect eye contact, such as through a camera lens or a reflective surface, merely petrifies (which is reversible). Ghosts who make eye contact -- even direct eye contact -- are also petrified, since you can't exactly kill them ''again''.
** The scream of a mature mandrake will instantly kill anyone who hears it. [[spoiler:During the final battle, the seventh year Herbology students start [[GoodIsNotSoft throwing them out the windows and right onto the Death Eaters]].]]

* Judge Dredd: Dredd was confronted by one of the "Dark Judges"- Judge Fear, one look at whose face will usually kill; Fear opened the visor on his helmet and invited Dredd to "Gaze into the face of FEAR!" Dredd responded by PUNCHING RIGHT THROUGH FEAR'S HEAD, killing him, while bellowing, "GAZE INTO THE FIST OF DREDD!"

** ''Series/TicTacDough'': The "red box" "Bonus Category," which immediately allowed the contestant another turn if he/she answered a three-part question correctly. The categories were moved to other boxes after the question, and the "Bonus Category" always appeared in an adjacent box or other space that allowed him/her to set up and eventually complete a tic-tac-toe. Played correctly – and it often was – a tic-tac-toe was completed without the opponent getting a chance to play (although he/she was always invited back to play the next game). Eventually, in the interest of fair play, the category was retired, in lieu of the modified "Double-or-Nothing."

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': [[RevolversAreJustBetter The Colt]] is a magical gun that can one-shot nearly anything in existence, even beings that would normally be considered unkillable. However, there are a few cosmically powerful creatures that it can't outright kill. [[spoiler: Dean and Sam learn a bit too late that [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]] is one of them]].

** Most of the highest ranking [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]] enjoy doing this to anyone less powerful than them who manages to piss them off, with Lucifer being the standout example. One snap of his fingers is usually enough to turn just about anyone into a [[LudicrousGibs red paste]].

* With the amount of damage the gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' can take, it's easy to forget that humans don't have the same luxury. Therefore, [[spoiler: Lars dying in a Robonoid explosion]] was one of [[WhamShot the most shocking moments]] in the show.

* In [[{{Literature/Warbreaker}} Warbreaker]], Vasher uses his sword [[ArtifactOfDoom "Nightblood"]] to dispatch numerous {{Mooks}}. Nightblood, when fully drawn, will [[spoiler: completely obliterate its victims, [[SoulCuttingBlade soul and all,]] in a single strike, leaving nothing but a [[NotEnoughToBury brief cloud of black smoke]] where they were standing. Wielding Nightblood in this manner comes with [[ArtifactOfDeath severe drawbacks]].]]

* In ''Literature/{{Changes}}'', [[spoiler: Ebenezar [= McCoy =]]] casts what essentially is a mass version of aforementioned ''Avada Kedavra'' onto two hundred or so {{Mooks}}. There's no flash, no sound or anything, he just makes a wide gesture with his staff and those he points to simply drop dead.

** Avada Kedavra, a.k.a. the Killing Curse, from ''Literature/HarryPotter''. [[UnblockableAttack In nearly all circumstances, the only way to survive it is to not be hit]]. The fact that the title character survived it as a child is what made him a legend ("The Boy Who Lived") in the wizarding world. Quirrell in ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'' all but uses the trope name when he describes it as BoringButPractical.
