* In general, comic book CrisisCrossovers frequently start off by killing or otherwise incapacitating some powerful mystical or cosmic entity (like Uatu the Watcher or the Spectre). Aside from [[WorfEffect showing off the villain's threat level]] and removing a character who might otherwise [[StoryBreakerPower handle the crisis on their own]], the character thus removed is likely to have been someone who could have contributed expert knowledge on the villain or his plans.

* Dosu in ''Anime/{{Naruto}}'', who was able to completely deduce Orochimaru's plan to attack the village and steal Sasuke.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'': The entire order of Grey Wardens in Ferelden, many of them with decades of experience of fighting darkspawn, goes to Ostagar to stop the Blight.

Though to be fair, the Wardens were {{Backstab}}bed by an ally, who took it on himself to withdraw his forces from the battle rather than uphold his part in it, leading to the annihilation of ''the entire army'' (including the King, who was also his ''son-in-law'') that was fighting alongside them.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the Vigilants of Stendarr are specialized in hunting down Daedra worshipers and Daedric creatures. However, when the vampires (who were warped into their state by the Daedric Prince Molag Bal) start going on the offensive, they're slaughtered and their main base of operations, the Hall of the Vigilant, is razed. Oftentimes, you will find groups of vampires posing as Vigilants after having murdered the actual Vigilants and taken their clothes. However, [[SubvertedTrope the foremost expert on vampires among them, who left the Vigilants to reform the Dawnguard, does much better]]. He '''can''' get killed, but only if [[OneManArmy The Dragonborn]] joins the Volkihar vampires, and not at the very start of the quest chain.
