* ''TrueBlood'' loves doing this, especially in ways that you ''really'' didn't see it coming.

* Used several times in ''OneThousandWaysToDie''. One notorious example is the ''Pam Caked'' segment: the AlphaBitch Pamela causes the flyer of her cheerleader group, Amber, to fall to the ground in public due to petty jealousy, and when she stands in front of the girls to gloat... she is accidentally [[TrampledUnderfoot trampled to death]] ''[[TrampledUnderfoot by the whole football team]]'', as they enter the sports grounds through a banner that blocks her from their view.

* ''TheWire'' generally avoids this, except for the infamous case of Omar Little, the EnsembleDarkHorse and MemeticBadass drug dealer Robin Hood, who, after four seasons of constantly outsmarting and killing some of the biggest names in the show, is abruptly shot in the back of the head - by a child - while buying cigarettes.

Added DiffLines:

* Used bizarrely in ''Literature/CiaphasCain''. In one story, one of the quotes at the beginning of a chapter is "Well that was unexpected" by a certain Varan the Undefeatable. When we actually meet him in a later story, it's actually a IAmNotLeftHanded moment as he screams the line while revealing his chaos mutations extend to a bulletproof carapace,and Cain has some diffficulty killing him.

* The BigBad of SoulEater, the Kishin Asura, has been built up to be the ultimate evil, with powers of madness enough to corrupt souls that even draw within a mile's radius of itself. After spending nearly 80 chapters in hiding, waiting to strike, the Kishin finally made its move... Only to be devoured by [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Chrona]] in the span of 2 pages.

* Most of the deaths on ''TheSopranos'' qualify, since mob hits generally take place when the victim isn't expecting it. Notable examples include Jackie Aprile Jr., Tony Blundetto, and Phil Leotardo in the final episode.

* In ''Film/{{Cache}}'', after inviting Georges into his home, Majid slits his own throat. Apropos of nothing. In this case, it's the fact that the death is self inflicted that is shocking, as well as the apparent lack of motivation for doing so.

* In ''TheTexasChainsawMassacre1974'', Kirk has just entered the farmhouse when Leatherface suddenly appears next to him and kills him with a hammer. What set this apart from a standard jumpscare is the matter-of-factly way its done. No ScareChord, no crazy angles, just...a quick death.

* In ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', Bane is on the point of killing Batman, and suddenly gets BlownAcrossTheRoom by Catwoman without any preamble or any indication whatsoever of what's about to happen. The [[DroppedABridgeOnHim suddenness and anticlimax]] is the main reason why many people watching expected him to get up again, thinking that his metal vest might have protected him, coupled with the fact that he's [[MadeOfIron Bane]].
