* Much of the plot of the fourth ''Literature/JohannesCabalTheNecromancer'' book features Horst Cabal telling his brother a story. Cabal interrupts the story frequently and at one point mentions that the danger Horst faced in the past loses any sort of drama because Horst lived to tell the story. Horst simply replies that he can't help that.

** Though attentive viewers might pick up on this. [[spoiler: Old!Bill has blue eyes (Edward James Olmos had to wear blue contacts in this role because he was supposed to look more similar to Apollo that way); while Young!Bill clearly has brown eyes.... well, but so does Young!Bill Junior.]]

* An odd example from ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma''. Out of the nine characters who appear in the game, [[spoiler: Akane, Junpei, Sigma and Phi]] ''should'' be guaranteed survival of the DeadlyGame because ZTD takes place before ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' where those characters appear. This is because Akane, Sigma and Phi [[spoiler: have already changed the past by signing onto the Mars Test Mission in order to SetRightWhatOnceWasWrong and avert the ApocalypseWow caused by the Decision Game]] so anyone who was previously guaranteed survival has their fate up in the air.

This trope usually exists in prequels and {{Interquel}}s, due to them being set earlier in the story's chronology. Fittingly, characters from the original work usually appear as their younger ages, and like the new characters, they usually are forced to fight deadly battles against the enemy; many of those battles are as nasty and brutal as they come, and many of them seem to result with the old characters dying and the villain laughing their ass off in triumph. But you know that however convincing these scenes may be, their ultimate outcome is predestined by the original stories that preceded them -- or you may be looking at a CanonDiscontinuity.

In that last movie you watched, or the last game you played, there're maybe some epic and great battles between two or more characters fighting to the death and one of them seems to be on their last leg, or maybe one of them seems to about to die by being poisoned by something, or maybe they're about to fall of a cliff and hit the ground below, or maybe they're about to crash in the middle of a carchase. Whatever the case, you know that they'll survive because if they died, the fictional works that take place chronologically after it wouldn't be able to exist in the first place.

* In ''Franchise/ProfessorLayton'', [[spoiler: specifically ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonAndTheAzranLegacy'', Layton and Luke sacrifice themselves to stop [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the golems from destroying all of humanity]] and get killed in the process (along with Emmy, Descole and Bronev). However, you know for a fact that at least Layton and Luke won't die, because Azran Legacy, like the previous two games, takes place before the events of the first three games. You know, because.. how the heck would we have the first three games if Layton and Luke died?!]]

* Similarly, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'' takes place in the same universe as the ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries Batman Arkham]]'' video games, and since it takes place specifically before the events of both ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' and ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' any character who appears in the games is going to come out fine, including Batman, Harley Quinn, the Joker ([[spoiler: despite apparently dying by the end of the film]]), Riddler, and Deadshot.
