* ''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 the mentor, leaving just the two newest recruits to succeed where they failed.

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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* Despite getting top billing in ''Film/ExecutiveDecision'', special forces operative Creator/StevenSeagal makes a SacrificialLion play at the very beginning of his team's mission to make sure it succeeds, making civilian specialist Creator/KurtRussell carry the rest of the narrative.

* Carson Wells from ''Film/NoCountryForOldMen'' is the character most familiar with serial killer Anton Chigurh. Chigurh doesn't even break a sweat in catching up with him. The un-initiated Llewelyn is, however much more problematic for Chigurh.
** Justified as Llewelyn has combat expierence from a tour in Vietnam.

* ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' has the Stranger, also known as [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep 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.

* The opening to ''VideoGame/FarCry3'' does a lot to set up the contrasts between the protagonist, drifting everyman Jason, and his brother, Army Reserve-trained Grant, with Grant keeping his cool as the two are taunted by a murderous lunatic, stalking through grass and under buildings just feet away from armed pirates, and even throwing a knife without hesitation to silence a guard who notices Jason, who is jittery and panicking the entire time. Then they set up a stolen map fifteen feet away from the camp and Grant takes a bullet through the throat for it, leaving Jason to fend for himself.

* The entomologist who knows all about the killer spiders of the movie ''Film/{{Arachnophobia}}'' goes down like a RedShirt. Perhaps a little more acceptable than most examples because he's a scientist, not a hunter, but he still wasn't very careful despite knowing how dangerous the spiders were.
