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.

* 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.
