* In ''Anime/DanganRonpa3 Future Arc'', a LOT of watchers were in complete distraught at the end of Episode 2, when Aoi Asahina, one of the survivors of the first game and having built up a sizable fanbase beforehand, was out and out murdered. This was to the point a lot of watchers decided to quit, citing DarknessInducedAudienceApathy.

Enough that turns out in the next episode, it turns out that Aoi didn't die, she just got stabbed by a toy knife and the blood was made of tomato ketchup. As a result, the relief of her survival eclipsed what would've become the next PlayerPunch: the one who actually died was an EnsembleDarkhorse: Great Gozu.

* ''Series/OrphanBlack'' gets into the action with the episode "The Scandal of Altruism", a major case of TheBadGuyWins and DownerEnding. [[spoiler:Kendall Malone, from whom both the Leda and Castor clones were cloned (due to BizarreHumanBiology), is shot and immolated, apparently destroying all traces of her genetic material. This leaves the clones, several of whom possess severe genetic illnesses, with a major recourse to unlocking the cause of these illnesses now closed to them. Additionally, Cosima's research on her illness and genetic code is seemingly destroyed, rendering her last several months' worth of work futile. As icing on the cake, we learn that Beth Childs was blackmailed into committing suicide, as she was threatened that if she did not do so, the other clones would be killed. Of course, the faction responsible for this turns out to be the same faction responsible for Kendall's murder and the destruction of Cosima's research.]] The show has had {{Wham Episode}}s before, but nothing approaching how devastating this episode was. It's almost a ''Game of Thrones''-level gut punch.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is infamous for doing this sort of thing (as is its source material, ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''). The most infamous example is probably the Red Wedding, in which [[spoiler:Robb Stark, his pregnant wife Talisa, and his mother Catelyn were betrayed and murdered in cold blood]], although killing off its DecoyProtagonist got the show quite a bit of attention too.

** The entire series, that book especially, is basically written to make you feel bad about enjoying violence and drama in the media.

* ''Manga/ZekkyouGakkyuu'' has, because of its premise, at least one punch for the reader ''every chapter''. And Yomi's background is bascially nothing ''but'' one player punch, after another.
