* Kim Delaney in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', both in ''Literature/FoolMoon'' specifically and the series as a whole. She's presented as Dresden's sort-of apprentice, but is torn to shreds by [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent a loup-garou]] while attempting to contain it with a partially-complete magic circle that Dresden [[YouAreNotReady refused to teach to her in full]]. This sets the loup-garou up as the major threat of the book, and starts Dresden's CharacterArc of realizing that concealing information from people, even "for their own good," can have tragic consequences.

* So far, every prologue (and epilogue) character in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' has died. Chett was lucky enough to have an offscreen death.

* In the ''ChaosWalking'' trilogy, PluckyGirl Maddy is introduced and killed off early on the second book. She was one of the few cheerful and optimistic characters, and her death demonstrated the senseless brutality of the Mayor's men.

* The prologue of ''Key Largo'' by Maxwell Anderson features an A.E.F. unit in the UsefulNotes/SpanishCivilWar that has already been whittled down to five men. The one who decides to leave the lines later reveals that all the others were killed shortly after.

* Lady Mirum from ''Literature/DragonsOfRequiem''. She's killed off in the second chapter (and in her POV chapter, no less) right after the story makes her seem like she'd be a main character. After she dies, the next chapter shifts over to one of the ''real'' main characters, Kyrie Eleison.

* The only reason [[spoiler:Slipknot]] of ''Film/SuicideSquad2016'' is in the movie seems to be to show that [[spoiler: Waller wasn't bluffing about the [[ExplosiveLeash implanted bombs]].]]

** Perhaps more so, Cedric Diggory's death shows that major characters on the good side can die.

** Emmeline Vance appears to be an in-universe example. Snape claims to have given the information to the Death Eaters that led to her death. [[spoiler: It is thus likely Snape was instructed to do this by Dumbledore, as a ploy to gain Voldemort's trust]].
