* ''Manga/FairyTail'': Almost every single major event in the story is the result of the death of one person. [[spoiler:That person is the main protagonist himself, Natsu Dragneel. Four hundred years before the current storyline, a young Natsu died in a dragon attack with his parents. His older brother Zeref Dragneel, [[{{Necromantic}} desperate to revive him]], immersed himself in the study of forbidden and taboo magic. He was cursed for his willingness to bypass the boundary between the living and the dead by the JerkassGod Ankhseram, and would come to be known as the strong and most evil mage in history. Zeref would create several demons to kill him that would later wreak havoc on the world (such as Deloria, who would kill Gray's parents and his mentor Ur), and many antagonists throughout the series are dark wizards who (mistakenly) seek to revive/summon him in hopes of attaining his power. Ironically, it seems the only thing Zeref was ''not'' responsible for in some way was Acnologia -- many in the series are convinced that he turned Acnologia into a dragon, but in reality Acnologia's transformation was a consequence of Dragon Slaying magic, which was created by Irene Belserion. In fact, some of the major events Zeref is responsible for were the result of his plan to ''stop'' Acnologia]].

** The death of Fairy Tail's first Guild Master Mavis Vermilion has a significant impact on the plot, though minor in comparison to the above example. [[spoiler:Especially considering the fact that [[NotQuiteDead Mavis is (technically) still alive]], as an AstralProjection. Precht/Hades, in his attempts to revive her, turned her body into the eternal magic, "Fairy Heart" aka Lumen Histoire. His failure to achieve his original goal is implied to what have driven him to villainy and create the dark guild Grimoire Heart. Ivan Dreyar is implied to have tried to use Fairy Heart for his own ends, which led to him being ex-communicated from the guild, and spread the information around, eventually attracting the attention of the Alvarez Empire. Finally, there is Zeref, her "killer", who was in love with her. Losing Mavis the way he did, after he allowed himself to believe there was someone out there he could care for and be happy with, was his true StartOfDarkness and led to him [[ThenLetMeBeEvil becoming the evil wizard the rest of the world feared so much]]]].
