** Kikyou's death was the trigger for almost everything that occurs in the story. It's why Inuyasha and Naraku are enemies, it's why Kagome's dragged back in time, it's why the Shikon no Tama is released back into the world and it's why Kagome is the only one who can decide the jewel's ultimate fate.

* ''Franchise/FatalFrame''
** ''Fatal Frame III'': Kaname Ototsuki's death. He snuck into the temple where his lover was lying, covered in the Holly tattoos, and woke her up. [[spoiler:Kaname is killed in front of Reika's eyes, which causes the Holly to enter her eyes and not only force her to replay her lover's death in front of her eyes until she's appeased, but also released the Rift into the temple, killing hundreds, and pull people into the Manor of Sleep.]]
** ''Fatal Frame V'': The Maidens of the Black Water were brutally killed, which was psychically and emotionally felt by Ouse. [[spoiler:Their death and regret, along with her own desire to ''live'' with Kunihiko Asou instead of simply dying with him, caused her ritual to fail and doom Mt Hikami.]]
