* OlderThanFeudalism: Since training gladiators was expensive, people weren't killed in GladiatorGames[[note]]Not to be confused with circus ''executions'', which didn't involve gladiators[[/note]] nearly as often as SwordAndSandal movies like to make it look. Such "high-stakes" games were announced in advance, ensuring that no seat be left empty.

* Famously -to the point of reaching MemeticMutation levels- subverted in an ''Anime/MazingerZ'' episode. The tile of that episode was ''Kouji Kabuto Dies In Lava!''. [[NeverTrustATrailer Guess what DOESN'T happen in that episode.]] That episode -and this trope- was parodied in a ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'' episode titled ''Kouji Kabuto Does Not Die In Lava!''.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Runescape}}'' world event ''The Bird and the Beast'' was hyped as this. The conflict was between Bandos and Armadyl racing to build their respective god-killing superweapons, with players deciding which side to help. The loser would get the wrong end of the winner's completed weapon and die, unlike the previous world event where the loser was merely weakened. [[spoiler: Armadyl won the day and Bandos was KilledOffForReal.]]

* The first book of ''The {{Belgariad}}'' sequel series ''The Malloreon'', has a prophecy dictating one of the party of heroes [[YouCantFightFate will not survive their quest]]. Just before the final battle, ''every single one'' of the party comes up to say goodbye to Belgarion (who, being the acknowledged hero, is the only member who isn't even theoretically in danger), since they all think they're going to be the one to die. [[spoiler:It turns out to be Toth, Cyradis's guide, who is somewhat forgettable. This becomes FridgeBrilliance when you realize that every other character in the story has had a role in the adventure, something that the characters have explicitly realized and discussed - meaning Toth came along ''specifically to be killed at this point''.]]

** It was [[spoiler: Church]] by the way.
** This was probably intended as parody as it is only 7 episodes into the series

* The video game ''MetalGearSolid4'' was hyped in a similar way. Trailers for the game hinted at the possibility of Snake, the main character, committing suicide and the game is being called "Snake's Final Mission". [[spoiler:Snake ''did'', die... it just wasn't ''Solid'' Snake. MGS 3 star ''Naked'' Snake (better known as Big Boss) is killed (after convincing Solid Snake not to kill himself).]]
