* When Sherlock Holmes "committed" suicide in ''Series/Sherlock'', spontaneous memorial for the character was created under St. Bart's Hospital in London (place of suicide). Worldwide action using various hashtags, mainly #I believe in Sherlock Holmes, continued up to two years later, when next season premiered.

* When SienkiewiczTrilogy was originally published, the death of [[spoiler: Longinus]] is said to have inspired a similar response. Old pious ladies asked for masses to be held for the peace of his soul.

* While the Browncoat fan community was very pleased to have a follow-up movie made of the short-running TV series ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', director Joss Whedon's decision to kill off [[spoiler:Wash, one of the most popular characters, who [[PluckyComicRelief should have had]] PlotArmor]], ultimately ruined the joy of having Film/{{Serenity}} for many fans. [[spoiler: Shepard Book's death, while also sad to many,]] had a muted reaction at least in comparison, probably since viewers ''usually'' get fixated on a single character. Probably a moot point, but [[spoiler:Shepherd Book's death]] did happen offscreen, whereas [[spoiler:Wash was dead-center (for lack of a better term]]) in the frame.

* Meanwhile a quarter of the Literature/{{Phenomena}} {{fandom}} failed to notice that the series [[FanDumb actually continued]] after the 4 th book, did the rest of the fandom go into silent mourning with loads of crying after [[spoiler: the heroine]] died. Worse still, when the [[Creator/RubenEliassen author]] wrote that if 3000 likes the [[http://www.facebook.com/phenomena.no official facebook page]] he'll continue writing and perhaps bring the character back [[spoiler: as it was implied to have happened in the end or maybe her ghost/spirit]], was this written on the facebook page itself and as most thought the 7th was the end they don't look for news to avvoid getting hurt again… and neither [[WhatTheHellHero the publisher]] nor media bother writing about it… Phenomena has sold over 10000 copies which is a lot for Norway so there's more than enough readers for 3000…
* Young men in London wore black mourning bands on their arms after SherlockHolmes died in "The Final Problem." Then they made Conan Doyle resurrect him.

One does not lightly disregard the wishes of one of the most beloved monarchs in British history, after all.



* ''Literature/{{Misery}}'': An InUniverse example, as Paul's number one fan Annie becomes ''outraged'' that he would kill off Misery Chastain, the protagonist of her favorite bodice-ripper series. So much so she forces a {{Retcon}} of her death.

* Aeris' death in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' caused this, to the point that many people were desperately hoping that there was some way (or point) she could/would be revived, even to this day. This was a particularly effective one, partly due to how far technology had advanced in gaming (making the death scene even more poignant) and partly since the writers actually ''set out'' to invoke this reaction (they succeeded...a little too well, some might say). Other ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games before and since also had this response at times, but Aeris's to this day remains the strongest.

* Mentioned InUniverse in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition''. In party banter, Cassandra admits to Varric that she gave up on reading one of his stories because he killed her favorite character, and was so upset that she threw the book across the room.



* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Tuuri's death. Several factors made things worse: the death being a BetterToDieThanBeKilled suicide (which stirred up people's feelings about the latter issue), {{Fanon}} that nobody was going to die in the story that existed up to that point and the feeling that the death betrayed the "light-hearted" story announced by the author herself. Some people took things so hard they outright stopped reading the comic, some of the more dedicated fans demoted themselves to casual readers and some regular fan work producers had to take a break.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': So many fans were outraged and saddened when Ashi faded from existence on her wedding day to Jack, partly because they felt it was a rip off of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', and partly because after all she and Jack went through it just wasn't a fair ending for either one of them, because they loved Ashi just as much as they loved Jack. So much so there have been alternate youtube endings made in which the gods being Ashi back to life, various fanfictions in which Ashi's death is retconned, and various petitions begging Genndy to make an alternate ending and save Ashi. They went so far as to refuse to watch the reruns of season 5 causing the ratings to drop and adult swim to pull it. ''Creator/TaraStrong'' has joined in, saying Ashi was one of her most favorite characters to voice and she would love to do her again and even hashtagged #ashilives on her Twitter.
