* In-universe example in Creator/TerryPratchett's short story "Final Reward", where a fantasy author kills off his BarbarianHero following an argument with his girlfriend. HilarityEnsures when "sent to meet his maker" turns out to be literal.

* ''Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare,'' aside from the self-explanatory title, opens with [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]] having killed off the entire child population of Springwood. In fact, the producers rejected other scripts, such as one pitched by Creator/PeterJackson, for not being final enough. Years later, ''FreddyVsJason'' would have to HandWave away the ChildlessDystopia in ''Freddy's Dead'' to show a restored Springwood.

* Averted by ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}''. Charles M. Schulz just retired, died a day later, and his final strip just said goodbye. No artist or writer in their right mind would ever dream of a ''Peanuts'' comic without Schulz. Regardless, since there was 50 years worth of strips, newspapers were content with re-runs. (That doesn't extend to films or TV specials, since Bill Melendez was mostly responsible for those. However, ''WesternAnimation/ThePeanutsMovie'' still felt the need to have a Schulz involved to lend it legitimacy.)
