* ''Film/RogueOne'': Every last one of the principal characters is killed off in the final battle. The second to last scene of the film are the last two characters staring out at the WorldWreckingWave fired from the Death Star and stoically facing an end they won't be able to escape.

* The Infamous Feast can easily end this way in ''TabletopGame/{{Pendragon}}'' campaigns using the Great Pendragon Campaign. If all the player knights attend, and none of them manage a critical success on a Temperance roll, they are all going to die messily. It's less devastating in ''Pendragon'' than usual, at least - as a generational game, the players of any knight to end up coming off second-best in a battle with Saxons or killed by a stray lance or, yes, poisoned horribly at a victory feast gone horribly awry, can just roll up their character's son or brother or niece or something and rejoin the plot.

* One of the major turning points of OnePiece wherein the Strawhats use up all of their energy to destroy one Pacifista, only for an Admiral Kizaru and ANOTHER Pacifista to show up just as they're recovering. Kuma fortunately shows up and saves the crew, but at the cost of sending them all flying to the far corners of the earth and separating them for two years. It's the first time in the series that the crew as a whole had been totally defeated

* The Bull from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' has done this to a previous batch of Regulars. Even a Regular can get in on this: when we first meet Yiwha Yeon, she has the dubious honour of being infamous for totalling the parties she's on with her powerful, uncontrollable flames.

* This is the point in VS mode in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' where the zombie players' objective is to kill all the survivor players. The trope also occurs if there is a player who is TooDumbToLive or is a LeeroyJenkins and causes the whole team to be killed due to his stupidity. Or worse, a Griefer.

This is the point in VS mode in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' both games, where the zombie players' objective is to kill all the survivor players. The trope also occurs if there is a player who is TooDumbToLive or is a LeeroyJenkins and causes the whole team to be killed due to his stupidity. Or worse, a Griefer.
** --> "Hey guys! Check out my grenade launcher!"launcher!"
** Normally, when playing single player, if your character dies, it's GameOver, [[WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou no matter how many bots are left]], as Valve presumed the player wants to play the game and not be relegated to a "watcher" role. [[TropesAreNotBad It made sense for some]], [[TropesAreNotGood but others weren't content with it]], and those others coded a number of {{Game Mod}}s that allow the bots to proceed (and possibly rescue the player survivor from a closet), and just like in multiplayer, the only way to restart the current scenario is for the whole survivor quartet to end up incapped or dead.

* In the LetsPlay/FreelanceAstronauts' LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'', one of their attempts at level 9-7 ended up as this when all four of them [[CrowningMomentOfFunny make the same jump into a Piranha Plant]].
* ''Blog/ThingsMrWelchIsNoLongerAllowedToDoInAnRPG'' gives a guide on what's an appropriate TPK:
-->1430. If the party goes out like ''Film/ThreeHundred'', that's cool. ''Film/ThelmaAndLouise'' not so much.
** Mr. Welch is also not allowed to mention [[NoodleIncident that time when they were nearly TPK'd by a Jerboa]].
* Happens regularly in ''Literature/BinderOfShame''. The record is three [=TPKs=] in a single night--the narrator left when someone suggested they start playing for a fourth time, and apparently they managed several more without him.
* In the ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' webseries and comics, this happens quite frequently to the titular guild ([[{{Noob}} the name is no accident]]).
* Briefly discussed in ''WebOriginal/CriticalRole''. Creator/LiamOBrien starts chanting "TPK" when the party is trapped in [[ConvectionSchmonvection a room with an active lava flow while two of their members are petrified and another has been charmed and kidnapped]]. Luckily everyone makes it out intact--except for Liam's character, who briefly falls unconscious and permanently burns his foot. The entire group also seems convinced their fight with K'varn, [[spoiler:a modified beholder]], will kill them all. [[spoiler:Again, everybody makes it out alive]].

* In ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', this can sometimes occur in firefight mode, which pits up to four players against increasingly difficult waves of covenant enemies. One of the most frequent ways this can happen is actually pretty surprising, the detonation of loose plasma grenades. Nearly all enemies have two plasma grenades on them but most can't or won't use them and when they die the grenades are dropped on the ground. These tend to aggregate in certain places where there are ideal kill zones. When one grenade is hit, it will start a chain reaction that can easily kill all the players if they are unlucky enough to be caught in it. Can also easily happen if someone messes up with the target-designator and calls an artillery strike on their own heads.
