Added DiffLines:

* Quite a few times in ''Series/GameOfThrones'', as a CrapsackWorld where AnyoneCanDie, a completely innocent and kindhearted character will be killed off through no fault of their own. Significant examples include Sansa's direwolf Lady in Season 1, Talisa in Season 3, Shireen and Myrcella in Season 5, and Walda in Season 6.

* Played with in WesternAnimation/SouthPark with Kenny who is arguably the most down to earth and morally centered of the four boys and he of course gets killed in nearly every episode of the first five seasons and nowadays once a season
** Played Straight with [[spoiler: Chef]] who was possibly the most down to earth of the townsfolk

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has [[spoiler: Jonathan and his father George]] in Part 1, the latter was a kind man who lent mercy to an otherwise [[JerkAss awful]] man and his [[TheSociopath even worse son]], while wishing he and his own son would get along eventually no matter how much he scolded them [[spoiler: something that is not rewarded as the ungrateful adoptee decided to kill him in order to become a vampire]]. The former in his final moments, despite everything horrible he did to him throughout his life felt only brotherly love rather than hatred for him, as well as pleading his pregnant wife to take care of a stranger's orphaned baby girl. A truly kind and gentle soul [[spoiler: like his father before him, also murdered by his ungrateful brother.]]



* [[PosthumousCharacter Menma]] from ''Anime/AnoHanaTheFlowerWeSawThatDay'' could be seen as this, having been a painfully-cute GenkiGirl who always put others before herself when she one day drowned at the age of ten.
* Marco Bott, from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. Idealistic, kindhearted, genuinely selfless without any sort of complex, always there to encourage the others, and pivotal in holding the 104th Trainees Squad together emotionally during their first battle. His best friend, Jean, discovers [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe what's left]] of Marco on the second day of cleaning up after the battle, and is horrified when he cannot [[DyingAlone find anyone]] that saw his final moments. This tragedy serves as a catalyst for Jean's evolution from a selfish {{Jerkass}} into TheLeader Marco always believed he could become. Later events suggest something more [[TheMole sinister]] may have been involved in his death....
* In ''Manga/BarefootGen'', there is Tomoko Nakaoka, along with Shinji, Eiko, and many children who were vaporized in the bombing of Hiroshima and its aftermath effects.



* The [[LittlestCancerPatient Dauphin]] in ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles'' died before the Revolution started.
* Sayo aka Magdaria from ''Manga/RurouniKenshin''.
* Rubina from ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' -one of the ''Anime/MazingerZ'' sequels-. All she ever wanted was people stopped killing each other and being happy with the man she loved. What she got for her efforts in stopping the war and try to convince everybody to forgive, forget and rebuild? [[spoiler:She got killed.]]



* Susannah Julia Von Wincott from ''LightNovel/KyoKaraMaoh'' falls under this trope. Can almost be called the MessianicArchetype. It is said that she was too pure for the Shoushu, the BigBad of the show, to possess her. Thus, making Yuuri the last hope. She sacrificed her life trying to help injured soldiers.
* [[spoiler:Ace]]'s death in ''Franchise/OnePiece''. While not having a happy childhood, with nearly everyone unknowingly telling him that his father [[spoiler:Gold Roger]] was a cruel, unsympathetic bastard and with the World Government claiming that a child of [[spoiler:Gold Roger]]'s didn't deserve to live, this character was a relatively friendly, polite and all-round nice person.
* Haku of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' was incredibly selfless and kind. His death to protect Zabuza was what spurred the man into his SelfDestructiveCharge and revealed the humanity he had long since buried. And then, as if the double-death scene wasn't poignant enough, [[SnowMeansDeath it snowed]].
* [[PosthumousCharacter Princess Iria]] from ''Anime/SoundOfTheSky''. She brought hope to everyone who knew her, and died trying to save a kid.

He is perhaps the ''only'' purely gentle and caring character without any bizarre personality defects in the series. His death is a driving motivation for the serious storylines, particularly how his students responded to it: Gintoki accepts the sinful earth that killed his teacher and protects it anyway; Takasugi thinks an earth so sinful should only be destroyed completely.
