* Izumii Curtis of ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' died before the events of the movie, ''[[Anime/FullmetalAlchemistTheConquerorOfShamballa Conqueror of Shamballa]]'', and appears only as a voiceless cameo to [[spoiler:reunite with her son Wrath [[TogetherInDeath as he dies]]]]. The screenwriter and the director wanted to avert this and have her live until some point in the movie and give her a dramatic death scene on screen, but due to time constraints, they had to cut this scene. Apparently, Izumi's seiyuu was apologized to for not being able to include her in the movie.

* 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''!

This generally has the effect of making the previous work a ShootTheShaggyDog / WhatWereWeFightingFor; however the main character will [[ForgottenFallenFriend quickly move on with their life.]] Doing this is a great way to [[BrokenBase cause a rebellion in the fanbase]] over what is going to be without a doubt a ContestedSequel. The SnicketWarningLabel may be applied here in cases where this strikes characters who got a Happy Ending in the previous work.

* Inverted on ''Series/MrSelfridge''. In real life, Harry Selfridge's wife died in the influenza epidemic of 1918, so she could legitimately have disappeared between seasons 1 and 2. Instead, near the end of the firsts season she ''tells'' her husband she is dying.

This can happen for several reasons: Maybe [[CartwrightCurse a character needs to stay single]] and the other character is in the way, maybe [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim the actor died between films]] (in which case the death is usually offscreen) or can only make a cameo, or maybe [[ExecutiveMeddling the character was only popular enough for a token appearance]]. Whatever the case, SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome often comes off as more than a little mean-spirited, to the point that it can be compared to [[StuffedIntoTheFridge Fridging]] or [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Bridging]] if handled especially badly.

* In the graphic novel ''Franchise/{{Batman}}: ComicBook/TheLongHalloween'', [[spoiler:Sofia Gigante]] barely survives the final confrontation. In the sequel, [[spoiler:Sofia becomes the BigBad, kills 10 people, and is anticlimactically killed off by Two-Face]].
** While we're on the subject of ''The Long Halloween'', [[spoiler:Holiday]] fits this trope. [[spoiler:Alberto Falcone was simply smothered to death by his own sister in ''ComicBook/DarkVictory'' while begging to be spared]].
