* In an interesting example of a character being SavedByCanon for the moment, but DoomedByCanon in the long run, T'Prynn in the ''StarTrekVanguard'' novels can't die, even when she's in a coma due to MindRape ... because she's going to die in a transporter accident eighty years later, as shown in a FlashBack in the ''StarTrekDeepSpaceNineRelaunch'' novels.

** Then in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', when the future is altered for the better, we see that all the X-Men are still alive, meaning Apocalypse has to be defeated somehow in ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' (which is set in the past), and the only major characters in danger of dying are Magneto, Mystique, Stryker, Psylocke, and Warren. Of particular note is Storm who is brainwashed as one of Apocalypse's Horsemen yet is seen as a teacher at the X-Mansion in the good future.

* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' is set before the first ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'' movie, and thus, King Julien is guaranteed to survive the many near death experiences he is involved in.

* ''VideoGames/TelltalesGameOfThrones'' has a number of characters from the [[Series/GameOfThrones show]] appear, such as Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, Margaery Tyrell and Jon Snow. This, of course, means that you cannot affect their actions in a way that would contradict the show's canon. This is especially infuriating in the case of Ramsay Snow, who [[spoiler:threatens to rape Talia, murders Lord Ethan, kidnaps Ryon, ''flays'' Arthur Glenmore and generally causes the Forresters no end of grief. There's even a moment where Ramsay holds a knife to his own throat and dares Rodrik to kill him; if you try to do so, he dodges back and applaudes your gall, but remains unharmed.]] Seeing as he is [[PlotArmor still alive and well]] in the show, it is [[KarmaHoudini unlikely the Forresters will be able to get revenge on him for his crimes.]]

* ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' has Bruce, Alfred, Gordon, Pamela, Oswald, Edward... it's safe to say that nearly every main character will be alive, although it's [[DoomedByCanon just as certain]] most of them will take the inevitable downward spiral of obsession and villainy (or heroics, in Bruce's case).
