* In ''Film/GranTorino'', [[spoiler:Sue Lor is beaten and gang-raped, motivating Walt's HeroicSacrifice. While she isn't killed, the previously engaging, gregarious Sue spends the rest of the film as a silent, shell-shocked victim]].

* [[spoiler:Pyrrha Nikos]] in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' [[spoiler:sends her partner and crush Jaune Arc away and goes to fight the series' villain, Cinder Fall, who defeats her and burns her into ashes to emotionally devastate Ruby (which some have felt was odd as Ruby and Pyrrha barely interacted over the three volumes). The death of Pyrrha was essentially done to motivate Ruby and Jaune, her love interest, who was already a BaseBreaker to some. Pyrrha's death was incredibly controversial, and the arguments over whether her death was this trope in action have caused arguments on various sites, including EditWars on ThisVeryWiki. While her corpse is never put on display, her body is burned in front of Ruby to emotionally devastate her, so the effect and outcome fit the bill for this trope. That's not even getting into the [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter subjective arguments over how the character was treated, how her character had just started being developed and fleshed out prior to her death]], and her motivations for going to fight Cinder in the first place came off as confused and contrived to many. The fact that in Volume 4, Jaune and Ruby are the only ones who seem affected by her death while Ren and Nora, her other teammates, only bring her up once and very subtly at that, not even mentioning her name, doesn't help matters.]]

A character is killed off in a particularly gruesome manner and [[DeadGuyOnDisplay left to be found]] just to offend or insult someone, or to cause someone serious anguish. The usual victims are those [[FriendlyTarget who matter to the hero]], specifically [[HeterosexualLifePartners best buddies]], love interests, and {{sidekick}}s. In some cases, the doomed character may be killed by natural forces or by a character who doesn't have the intent to cause someone else angst--in this case, the intent comes from the writer, who wants to rouse strong emotions in another character. If the said character was killed by a villain, this guarantees to become a motivation for a {{Revenge}} plot or an immediate RoaringRampageOfRevenge.

* [[spoiler:Pyrrha Nikos]] in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' [[spoiler:sends her partner and crush Jaune Arc away and goes to fight the series' villain, Cinder Fall, but many have complained that her motivations for doing so come off as incredibly confused and contrived. After she is defeated by Cinder, she's burned into ashes for no real reason other than to emotionally devastate Ruby and activate the special powers of her eyes, which comes off as an odd move considering the fact that Ruby and Pyrrha barely interacted over the 30 plus episodes of the series, made even stranger due to the fact Ruby's eyes did not shine even a little bit upon seeing her friend Penny die or seeing that her sister's arm had been cut off. Another factor some have complained about is how her death was also done to affect Jaune, a character who was already a BaseBreaker to many, to give him motivation and angst in the coming volumes. It's not helped by the fact that some have pointed out that the season's ending would have been nearly the same had Pyrrha survived and Ruby's eyes were shining as a result of seeing her friend in mortal peril, and most of Volume 4 would have too with only a few differences in the over all story, so there are those who feel as though her death was done simply for shock value, not helped by the fact that many feel that her death came off as being needlessly cruel. The fact that in Volume 4, Jaune and Ruby are the only ones who seem affected by her death while Ren and Nora, her other teammates, only bring her up once and very subtly at that, not even mentioning her name, doesn't help matters. What makes this worse is the fact that after [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter Pyrrha had spent most of Volumes 1 and 2 being an ignored love interest, mentor, and a slight satellite character to Jaune, she had just started to truly be fleshed out as a character just a handful of episodes prior to being killed off, making it feel like her character arc was cut abruptly short by her death.]] While her body is never put on display, the effect and outcome fit the bill for this trope, considering the impact it had on Ruby. The death was and remains incredibly controversial and many were angered by it and many who were critical of the scene have pointed out that her death feels very much like this trope in action. It even got to the point of causing arguments on various sites on whether it was an example of this trope or not, including EditWars on ThisVeryWiki.]]
