* WonderMan, a key member of the West Coast Avengers who was a major member of the team throughout its run, was shockingly killed in the first issue of the sequel series Force Works. Which had the accidental effect of ''cancelling his own comic series while it was still going''!

* ''Manga/UQHolder'' does the offscreen variant: the first chapter opens with a brief montage which both establishes that the series is set about 60 years after ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''... and also strongly implies that the majority of the cast has passed away during that time. It also goes out of it's way to show Negi's tombstone.

* Falstaff, the EnsembleDarkHorse of Shakespeare's ''HenryIV'' plays, has apparently died early on in ''HenryV'', and there's a scene where Falstaff's friends are discussing it. While not quite as ''sudden'' as many of the other examples on this page, and seen as sort of a consequence of Prince Hal (Henry V) disassociating himself from Falstaff, it seems as if this trope is older than film, and in fact OlderThanSteam.
