* In ''VideoGame/JeanneDArc'', one would naturally expect the lead female to be burned at the stake. However, since Jeanne herself had already gone [=MIA=], and the French higher-ups made her childhood friend Liane pose as her for the remainder of the war... Although TeamPet Cuisses [[PowersAsPrograms inherits her stats]] via the Paragon's Armlet, Liane only comes back as a spirit to assist in a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind against a demonic duplicate, and the player can recruit her ghost as a post-game bonus. Nevertheless, she remains legitimately dead to the plot, and Jeanne and Roger are last seen praying for her at the Chapel near Domremy.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has a slightly more justifiable version. [[spoiler:Goro Akechi is killed by his father's cognition of him near the end of the seventh Palace. However, before he dies, he seals himself off with a huge steel door in order to protect the party. They can't use healing spells or items on him because they can't physically get to him.]]
** There's also [[spoiler:Kunikazu Okumura. The player won't mourn him, but his death causes a LOT of issues.]]

* In ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance'', you must choose between rescuing [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Nightcrawler or Phoenix]] from Mephisto's realm. Doesn't matter if you have enough players to attempt to TakeAThirdOption, it's a case of ButThouMust. [[spoiler:If Nightcrawler is chosen, Phoenix returns in the epilogue as Dark Phoenix. If Phoenix is chosen, Mystique kills Professor X.]]

* In ''RiseOfLegends'' Carlini dies in a cutscene near the beginning of third campaign by the god of Death himself, meaning he can't come back at all. Normally it just takes some resources and time to revive a fallen hero. Moreover in this mission you get to control a hero that has ability to resurrect friendly units.

* Subverted in ''AncientDomainsOfMystery'', giving the AlmostDeadGuy an amulet of life saving instead of talking to him actually revives him. This is required for the GoldenEnding.
