** Two previous Spider-Man deaths can be seen as approaching this trope in a more roundabout fashion: in ASM #11, Betty Brant's barely-introduced brother Bennett is killed in the crossfire in a fight involving Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus, providing Betty with a reason to hate the web-slinger and thereby throwing a spanner in the works of her budding romance with Peter Parker.[[note]]This being comics, he eventually got better[[/note]] Later, in #90, a similar fate befell the father of Peter's new girlfriend Gwen Stacy, leading to another temporary estrangement between the hero and his love interest. However, in both cases the deaths were accidental.

* ComicBook/{{Mockingbird}}, on three occasions now. Firstly, when she's raped by Phantom Rider, which acts as something of a subversion as its ''her'' who gets the most affected by it, resulting in her killing the Phantom Rider; Hawkeye angsts about this, but only because he's scared she's descending back into supervillainy after all the work she did to get out of it. Later, she's killed by Mephisto, resulting in Clint falling into a downwards spiral for a while and eventually breaking up the West Coast team. After she's revived, she gets shot while on a mission with the New Avengers, all just to make the team, and Hawkeye, more angry at the villain.

After she's revived, she gets shot while on a mission with the New Avengers, all just to make the team, and Hawkeye, more angry at the villain. And then after ''that'', she's left behind on a mission with the Secret Avengers without her memories, where she goes through MindRape, then gets lost during the failed rescue mission.

* Charlie Parker's wife and child are murdered by a serial killer and left in the kitchen of his house for him to find in John Connolly's Every Dead Thing.
** Connolly tends to use women like that. In Dark Hollow, Charlie Parker is motivated by the gory death of Billy Purdue's wife and son.

* [[spoiler:Pyrrha Nikos]] in ''{{RWBY}}'' [[spoiler:Is gruesomely burned to ash literally just to give Ruby and Jaune something to angst about, to show off the "awesome" new power of [[CreatorsPet Cinder]] [[VillainSue Fall]], and to add one final tragedy to an already pointless bleak and tragic season full of senseless cruelty and death.]]
