* In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', Bruno Mannheim is killed by Darkseid [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness after outliving his usefulness]]. Jax-Ur, who is basically [[CompositeCharacter Zod but with an unrelated character's name]], ends up sucked into an black hole.

** Actually, Mannheim's fate was left ambiguous. He did manage to flee the doomed island on which Darkseid trapped him in a motorboat just seconds before it exploded, but it's unclear whether or not he out-sped the explosion seeing as he never showed up again.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm'' has the Joker taken away by the Phantasm presumably to be killed, and that's the last we ever see of him in it. As he later appears in episodes of the animated series and the DCAU it can be presumed that he escaped somehow. One tie-in comic released a few years after the film ultimately confirms it as well as shows how he did it.

* ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, the Film/{{X-Men}}'s ArchEnemy, survived all the films, along with Mystique. The villains of individual movies were killed, however with the possible exception of Juggernaut who was rendered unconscious but was on the island when Phoenix started blasting everything into atoms. Since in the second film Magneto is referred to as ''one'' of the mutants captured after the first film, it's probable that at least one of Sabretooth or Toad also survived, but neither was ever seen again.

** The "majors die, minors survive" version is played straight in ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', with Kilgrave getting his [[NeckSnap neck snapped]], but Will Simpson seemingly surviving.

** The "majors die, minors survive" version Even though Killgrave is played straight in ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', killed by the end of season 1, ''Series/JessicaJones2015''zig-zags the trope with Kilgrave getting his [[NeckSnap neck snapped]], but Will Simpson seemingly surviving.

* Averted in ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries''. Producer Avi Arad stated flat-out that Peter will not kill his enemies. Setting up for a villain-based ''Film/SinisterSix'' movie was also a factor.

** Thanos, seen in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', and ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', still lives as well, although he has yet to actually take the role of main villain, which he will in ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'', but given his immense power and Phase 3's penchant for averting this trope, his survival is very likely.
