* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'' many villains 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 RoguesGallery live and most of the time get away.
** The BigBad of Season 1, the Reverse-Flash, is [[RetGone erased from time]] when his ancestor pulls a HeroicSuicide to ensure he's never born... but thanks to a TimeyWimeyBall his past self is still around to threaten the heroes occasionally. The Season 2 BigBad, Zoom, is dragged off to a FateWorseThanDeath. Both return in ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', where Reverse-Flash's messing with time has begun to catch up with him and he's now being hunted by Zoom, who has been turned into a particularly nasty {{Clock Roach|es}} called the Black Flash. [[spoiler:He fails and the Black Flash does him in for good.]]

** The "major villain dies, minor villain lives" sub-clause is inverted in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' when Batman captures the Joker alive but is unable to prevent Harvey Dent aka Two-Face from falling to his death. Sadly, Nolan did this because he had plans to use Joker in future installments (he thought the original Batman movie should have let Joker live) but Creator/HeathLedger died after the movie was completed, leaving no chance for him to appear in the sequels.

* In ''Film/FantasticFourRiseOfTheSilverSurfer'', the Surfer nearly sacrifices himself to stop Galactus, completely obliterating him in a cosmic shockwave. Doom is seemingly killed at the end of the first film, but returns alive in this film, only to presumably drown when Ben knocks him into the water with a crane.

* In the first live action ''{{Film/Transformers}}'' film, all Decepticons in the climatic battle including Megatron die except Starscream and Barricade (the latter probably would have, but they forgot to film the scene). Megatron is brought back to life and survives the sequel, but The Fallen dies. In the third film all major Decepticons and Sentinel Prime are killed. Lockdown is killed at the end of the fourth film, but Megatron, rebuilt as Galvatron, escapes and lives to fight another day.
