* In ''[[Literature/{{Sandokan}} The King of the Sea]]'' we have Paddy O'Brien, a MadScientist calling himself [[NamesToRunAwayFrom "The Demon of War"]] and saying he has invented [[DeathRay a ray that blows up enemy munition stores from afar]] (in the ''[=1860s=]''). During the final battle he's told to prove it, he does by blowing up one of the five enemy warships... And then he's killed by a grenade that also destroys his death ray.

* ''Franchise/FatalFrame''
** ''Fatal Frame'' has Mafuyu Hinasaki, the protagonist's older brother. Overall presented as an amazing guy, Mafuyu took care of his sister [[PromotedToParent after their mother's suicide]], headed into the haunted mansion simply to find and help his professor and is clever to realize what is going on, leaving notes for Miku to find. [[spoiler: He decides to remain with Kirie at the Hell Gate, so she will not be lonely anymore and ease her suffering.]]
** ''Fatal Frame IV'' the ex-police officer turned detective Choushiro Kirishima. He's the one who discovered the kidnapped girls on Rougetsu Island and has been spending his entire time finding and bringing You Haibara to justice. {{Badass}} is the simplest way to describe this guy, for all the things he does. [[spoiler: Turns out, he's been dead for years and his ghost is what's been doing all that work.]]

* Johnny Gat spends the first two ''SaintsRow'' games establishing himself as a CrazyAwesome badass, only to die in the first half hour of ''SaintsRowTheThird''. [[spoiler: Part IV reveals that he was in fact Too Cool To Die, and he actually survived the events of the third game.]]

* Max aka [=HandofBlood=] in TubeClash, a german YouTube series, where animated versions of german Youtubers team up and fight each other to survive, {{Battle Royale}} style. The aforementioned Max makes it all the way to the penultimate epsiode, by now qualifying as the greatest {{badass}} of the remaining three, having defeated a giant serpent all by himself earlier and using a gigantic Samurai sword as his weapon of choice. Despite his physical superiority over the others however, he chooses to instead sacrifice himself to allow the remaining two to move on. May also qualify as {{Heroic Sacrifice}}.
* Pyrrha Nikos in ''{{RWBY}}'' ended up being an example of this; by far the best fighter in the main cast, she was both a mentor and a love interest to the male lead, in addition to being a world renowned athlete. She met her fate against TheDragon in the third season's finale, and came very close to winning despite TheDragon having recently gotten a massive power boost.

** Narrowly averted with General Veers in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''. Originally, he was supposed to get killed when a Rebel snowspeeder kamikazes into his Imperial walker, blowing him up, but the scene was cut.

* Saurod in ''Film/MastersOfTheUniverse''. A slinky, almost silent reptilian mercenary in gold armor with a CoolHelmet shaped like a flared cobra's hood, complete with syringe-like projections on his face mask and what amounts to a metal ponytail coming out of the back of the cobra hood/helmet. And then when the QuirkyMinibossSquad [[YouHaveFailedMe disappoints]] Skeletor, it's this guy he chooses to zap out of existence. Even better, right as Skeletor is about to strike, Saurod can be seen ''drawing his gun in anticipation of the attack'', proving he had some quick reflexes and enough self-preservation to draw a weapon against his boss. Unfortunately, he wasn't quick enough.

* The second season of ''{{Series/Garo}}'' has a time traveling wandering samurai named Igari Juuzou. In order to prevent himself from dying from an incurable disease, he strikes a deal with a demon residing in a katana. What makes Juuzou such an awesome character, is that he is so far the only character in the entire GARO franchise to be fully in control of his body after a demon possessed it. When the demon commands him to kill innocents so it can feed on them, Juuzo simply cuts open his own body and tells it to feed on his blood. In his final battle with one of the heroes, he shows he is in complete control of the demonic powers. The downside of this great character is that he basically amounts to a MonsterOfTheWeek, lasting for only one episode.

** Both of the PlayerCharacter's older brothers in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': Xander on ''Birthright'', Ryoma on ''Conquest''. Thankfully, the third path spares them.
** Scarlet in ''Conquest'' and ''Revelation'', even worse on the latter as she dies protecting the Avatar.

* Pankraz from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV''

to:

* Pankraz from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV''''VideoGame/DragonQuestV''. Since he's never actually player-controlled, the game only gives brief glimpses of how {{badass}} he is, but it's more than enough to show he would've been a top-tier party member all the way to the end of the game. Especially given his unique ability to attack twice every turn.



* Archer in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Many say the same of Lancer. Heck, pretty much every Servant qualifies.
** [[FanNickname GARserker]] from ''LightNovel/FateZero'' definitely qualifies. [[ItsAllAboutMe Gilgamesh]] qualifies too.

* Gordon Walker from ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''

* Pretty much any character that the audience likes from ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' as the show seems to relish in killing off fan favorites (sometimes bringing them back seasons later just to kill em off). Honestly, it's easier to count the ones that don't die.
