* The ending of ''Film/ExMachina'' sees Caleb trapped inside of Nathan's facility as Ava escapes without him, the ultimate test of her abilities. While the film doesn't show anything one way or the other, Caleb's hundreds of miles from help with no one coming to look for him, in a facility without any power. The most the audience gets to see is Caleb trying and failing to break down a window with a chair.

* ''Film/JusticeLeague'': Steppenwolf's Parademons turn on and start feasting on him, but a BoomTube teleports him and them away so he may have survived, albeit likely badly injured. That said, [[GreaterScopeVillain Darkseid]] tends not to take failure well.

** This is also the ultimate fate of the majority of the good guys for that matter; [[spoiler: In ''the Penultimate Peril'', the Baudelaires set fire to the Hotel Denouement where many recurring characters stayed. The narrator mentions that he has no idea how many people died and who survived. In ''The End'', the islanders are last seen infected by a deadly mushroom and Kit Snicket reveals that the Quagmire triplets, Hector, Captain Widdershins, Fernald and Fiona were caught by "[[TheSpook The Great Unknown]]" but given its mysterious nature, it's unclear what happened to them. Finally, the Baudelaires themselves decide to leave the island with Kit's baby but Lemony Snicket lost track of them afteward and doesn't know for sure if they reached the mainland or died at sea.]]

* In general, any game that allows the player to choose whether a character lives or dies is subject to this, if the outcome is not [[CuttingOffTheBranches resolved by a sequel]].

* In ''[[VideoGame/SonicLostWorld Sonic Lost World]]'', when the Deadly Six are defeated, Zazz, Zomom, Master Zik, and Zeena [[NoBodyLeftBehind explode in a puff of smoke]], whilst Zor and Zavok [[DisneyVillainDeath fall into the lava]]. Eggman later claims he's got plans to control the Deadly Six again suggesting they were still alive, or at least can easily be revived. Notably, they [[SparedByTheAdaptation all survived in the 3DS version]], and their appearance in spinoffs suggests ''SEGA'' doesn't consider them KilledOffForReal. Zavok at least is confirmed alive in ''VideoGame/SonicForces''.

Asking the creators for clarity usually will get you nowhere, as they often [[ShrugOfGod aren't entirely sure themselves]]. And if they do confirm the character's death, the ambiguity of this trope allows them to get away with bringing the character back anyway [[FlipFlopOFGod should they change their minds]]. If FridgeLogic leads fans to assume this happened to one of the good guys, it can result in an InferredHolocaust.

When the audience doesn't even know if the characters are in danger, see ChuckCunninghamSyndrome and WhatHappenedToTheMouse.

* ''Film/KingdomOfHeaven'': The Grand Master of the Templar Order, who often accompanied Raynald de Chatillon during his massacres of Muslim caravans, is last seen marching with other crusaders against Saladin and his army. Because all the crusaders start dying of thirst and exhaustion, their army is annihilated and Raynald and Guy de Lusignan are taken captive. It is unclear if the Grand Master died with crusaders, but as he was not captive, it is implied that he did.
** According to historical facts, the Grand Master was Gerard de Rideford and he did survive the battle and was simply taken prisoner.
