* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'': Crewman Daniels turns out to be a temporal agent of 31st-century Starfleet, sent back to counter enemy agents -- specifically Silik, a bad guy Daniels suspects is also aboard. He is. He kills Daniels easily. (Daniels does show up later, having apparently only been killed "in a manner of speaking", but whatever happened, it took him out of the action and left Archer to fend for himself.)

Compare/contrast TheObiWan, who is also wise to the threat and often killed by it nonetheless, but The Obi Wan's death, if and when it comes, is often a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome, ObiWanMoment, or at least dramatic. Compare also TheWorfEffect, which is where an enemy dispatches a more generally established badass with ease, rather than one specialized against them. Finally, consider MentorOccupationalHazard, which is the tendency of mentors to the hero to die.

* Utterly, completely, and totally averted in the {{Tremors}} franchise. [[CrazySurvivalist Burt Gummer]], through frequent battles with Graboids, Shriekers, and Ass-Blasters, is oft called upon to deal with such threats as of the opening of the third film (and much of the t.v. series.) The closest Burt comes to being killed was a situation where he was EatenAlive, and even then, he survived.

*** ''Avada Kedavra'' is unblockable, so he could only have survived if he dodged it. Considering Mundungus Fletcher disapparated, distracting him and probably throwing his broom off-balance, it's not likely he was able to.

* ''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. They are all killed off in the prologue, among them TheObiWan, leaving just the two newest recruits to succeed where they failed.

It's something of an In Universe Nickname - Sam refers to him as that.
* ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' has the Stranger, better known in fandom as [[FanNickname Flamethrower Guy.]] Despite having hunted the Wendigos for decades and actually having managed to largely defeat them, after one cutscene explaining Wendigos to most of the cast and a conversation with Chris explaining a bit more about them, he gets killed in his very next fight with them (likely due to keeping his eye more on Chrisís safety than on his immediate surroundings, as [[IWorkAlone heís always hunted by himself.]]) The cast finds out anything else they need to know from a book found in his belongings at the lodge.
