Guess AnyoneCanDie after all. In fact, you're likely to bite it in the first few minutes if you appear in the sequel at all. And if you're a FinalGirl who's in more than one installment of a SlasherFilm series, your life expectancy drops dramatically.

* ''[[Film/StarWarsEwokAdventures Ewoks: The Battle for Endor]]'': The sequel to the TV movie ''The Ewok Adventure'', has a perfect example of this trope. The original movie concerned the efforts of a teenage boy named Mace and his young sister Cindel to rescue their parents from a BigBad monster that has kidnapped them. With the help of the Ewoks, they succeed and the first movie ends on a happy note. Barely 10 minutes into the second film, however, Mace is killed, and so are both parents. Cindel is the only human protagonist from the first film to survive the second one. Considering how the goal of the first movie was to save the parents, it's a good example of a sequel making the previous work seem like a ShootTheShaggyDog. * ''Series/{{Fringe}}'': Killed off Charlie Francis in the first episode of the second season.
