* This trope is OlderThanDirt: a first-century BC gravestone in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bet_Shearim Bet Shearim]] bares an inscription "come in peace, and they will rest in their beds, he who goes straightforward" quoting [[TheBible Isaiah]], stating that the person who died did so because he could not stand the evil around him.

* This happens to one character in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', but you wouldn't know the full story of it unless you're on the [[GoldenEnding pacifist route]]. [[spoiler: Asriel Dreemurr, the son of Asgore and Toriel, was described as a young boy who was very kind hearted and possibly more so than his parents and his birth brought happiness to his parents since they were now a family. Asriel also became best friends with a human child that the family adopted and was willing to do anything the human wanted, even when the pranks got less funny and more dangerous (though Asriel somewhat knew the human child wasn't exactly a good person). Eventually, the human child hatched a plan to kill all the humans in his village by killing himself so Asriel could absorb the human child's soul and gain the power needed to kill the humans. Asriel's good hearted nature won out at the last moment and he could not go through with the plan. When Asriel brought the child's body back to the village, the humans though Asriel had killed the child and they attacked him in response. Asriel did not fight back and he eventually went back to his world where died from his wounds. His death kickstarts the entire plot and many characters in the game state that Asriel was very pure, innocent, and how tragedy washed over the entire monster kingdom when he died.]]

A popular and [[OlderThanFeudalism old]] (and perhaps [[DiscreditedTrope outdated]] but [[UndeadHorseTrope overused]]) trope to justify KillTheCutie. If there is a child of extraordinary beauty, goodness and innocence in the story, he or she will invariably die in as {{Anvilicious}} a manner as possible. The child will be certainly an IllGirl, and frequently a WaifProphet, whose death will be [[SoapOperaDisease slow, torturous and lingering]] ([[VictorianNovelDisease tuberculosis]] or other disease was a particular favorite in the 19th Century), giving the child a chance to [[FinalSpeech bid farewell]] to everyone she loved in a long, drawn-out drama scene. Sometimes she gets to speak a few last words to hammer in AnAesop relevant to the larger plot at hand. After she's breathed her last, her loss is mourned by all who knew her -- in particularly extreme cases even the BigBad will take a moment to reflect on it -- and may serve to re-energize tired or disillusioned heroes to fight on for her cause.

** For JFK, this is combined with {{Historical Hero Upgrade}}, with recent opinion polls suggesting that the [[ViewersAreMorons US public]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_rankings_of_Presidents_of_the_United_States ranks him as one of the greatest US presidents]]. Never mind that he nearly caused {{World War III}} ''twice'', started the {{Vietnam War}} (unfortunately, {{Lyndon Johnson}} [[MisBlamed is now widely blamed and despised for this]]), compromised national security in his [[AManIsNotAVirgin sexual conquests]], [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_1960 committed vote fraud]] and had he lived, civil rights legislation would have been much harder to pass.

* Kolulu from ''ZatchBell''. Even though she was only sent back to the Mamodo World when her book was burned, this is still treated as the equivalent of the death in the series, [[TearJerker not to mention the impact it has on people]].
