Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/ThePiratesCoveredInFur'' has three of these, all from the same chapter. Carson, Kelly, and Kinzly are all killed by [[BigBad Lyle Krinkor]], both to show off his HeroKiller status and to show that none of the main characters have PlotArmor anymore.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{TOT}}'' was mostly restrained in killing off the main characters for two-thirds of the story. Then Mark, who was written to be ''the'' main protagonist, dies at the end of chapter 9. From that point forward, [[CerebusSyndrome all the humor in the story went away]], and each subsequent chapter killed off ''at least'' one main character.

** Sirius Black's death at the end of the fifth book signals that even the major characters aren't safe.
** Mad Eye Moody in the beginning of the seventh book. Immediately after his death, the characters comment on how surprising Moody's death is given his seemingly badass and invincible nature. It also signals that characters can now die at any point of the book, not just in the climax as with books 4-6. This is especially ironic because at the time Mad Eye was riding with Mundungus Fletcher, a veritable MauveShirt.

** Cedric Diggory, the former {{Trope Namer|s}}. He's introduced a book before, given loads of CharacterDevelopment, becomes Harry's friend in addition to his rival... and then is rather casually murdered, just to show how evil Voldemort is. In commentary on the series, his death serves the meta purpose of showing that Rowling was [[AnyoneCanDie playing for keeps]].

* ''Webcomic/SleeplessDomain'' was about Team Alchemical, a team of MagicalGirls with ElementalPowers. Until Chapter 2, when Alchemical Air, Fire and Earth are killed in action, and Alchemical Aether saves Water at the cost of her own powers. Then the comic becomes the story of Undine (Water) and Sally (Aether) moving on with their lives as best they can.
