** In ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', Jason Woodrue dies, Poison Ivy is heavily implied to be set for death (They leave her in the same cell with Mr. Freeze, after having realised that she was the one who attempted to kill his wife.), Bane's fate is a little more ambiguous than that (He's alive but severely weakened by Venom withdrawal when we last see him, and the building around him is collapsing- although nothing else is actually shown happening to him afterward.) and Mr. Freeze is definitely alive.

* In ''[[Film/FantasticFour Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer]]'', the Surfer nearly sacrifices himself to stop Galactus. It's uncertain whether that ended the planet-eater for good, but chances are that it stalled him. Both versions avert this when it comes to Doctor Doom who is alive, but defeated, by the end of both films.

** A less definite instance in ''Film/SupermanReturns'', when Lex Luthor is last seen stranded on a desert island, with only six coconuts and a dog to eat; it is presumed that he will die of starvation, or possibly dehydration, after all are gone. He obviously won't return, since the franchise was rebooted for the DC Extended Universe.

*** Although all of these are undone when the timeline is altered; as of Apocalypse, William Stryker is currently alive.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'' many rogues are killed in the episode they are introduced. However the majority of them are {{Rogues Gallery Transplant}}s from lesser known heroes while the actual Rogue's Gallery live and most of the time get away. The BigBad of Season 1, the Reverse-Flash, is erased from time when his ancestor pulls a HeroicSuicide to stop him... but thanks to a TimeyWimeyBall his past self is still around to threaten the heroes occasionally.

In Season 2, Zoom is dragged off to a FateWorseThanDeath (but then Barry messes with time even more, so who knows how the TimeyWimeyBall will affect things).



* Completely averted in ''Series/AgentCarter'', where all the major villains have survived. In Season One, Doctor Faustus is captured and a Black Widow agent escapes. In Season Two, Whitney Frost is depowered and committed to an insane asylum, Joseph Manfredi is allowed to go free since he helped the heroes in stopping Whitney, and Black Widow escapes again. Some members of the Council of Nine ''are'' killed ([[EvilerThanThou by Whitney]]); but one, Vernon Masters, is a deliberately ambiguous case of NeverFoundTheBody.

** The end of season 2 started playing things straight and wiped out nearly all the recurring villains, leaving only Ward remaining as an active threat (of other survivors, Quinn is an ''in''active threat, not having been seen since Season One; and Cal voluntarily submits to mindwiping). Season Three similarly kills off its villains (including Ward) and leaves only one or two survivors, neither of which are likely to remain bad guys (Radcliffe was more amoral and in over his head, and was perfectly happy to side with SHIELD when given the chance; while James, [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse if he did in fact survive]], had been brainwashed into helping the BigBad).
