* Actual news shows reported on the death of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica in 2007. Fans, who were much smarter, knew he'd be back eventually, which he did of course.

This can either be a sign of a great writer, or a terrible one. Likewise, it can be the sign of a touching viewer following, or a fanatical one. Or perhaps {{b|rokenBase}}oth. Either the [[TearJerker death struck a chord deep and meaningful]] or the fans become enraged that TheyJustDidntCare. In any case, sometimes it almost seems to border on DaydreamBeliever with how "real" the character's death feels.

* The Grace Archer story was parodied in a TV episode of ''Series/HancocksHalfHour''. The producers of Hancock's radio soap are delighted to have got rid of him until they realize how much public grief his character's death has caused, and then he has them over a barrel.

* ''Anime/Danganronpa3'' has done a bang-up job of pushing its fanbase into [[{{Pun}} despair]] in the final stretch, with the killing off of fan favorites [[spoiler: Kyoko Kirigiri and Chiaki Nanami]] in the [[CharactersDroppingLikeFlies span of two weeks]]. While the latter was [[DoomedByCanon largely expected]], the [[CruelAndUnusualDeath sheer]] [[KillTheCutie brutality]] of the scene was enough to push the characters' fans into a quick depression mode. The creators have [[TrollingCreator taken glee]] in the response.

* ''{{Kannagi}}'''s Japanese readers provided an alarming example when Nagi's former lover showed up. The mere ''possibility'' that she might not be a virgin caused widespread outrage; there's been much speculation that this contributed to the manga's long hiatus shortly thereafter. (The author has serious health problems, but two and a half ''years''?)

* 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 Shepard Book's death did happen offscreen, whereas Wash was dead-center (for lack of a better term) in the frame.

* ''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.

to:

* ''Series/BeautyAndTheBeast1987'' built itself on heavy emotional investment in even the minor characters, and ''especially'' the long-building romance between Catherine and Vincent. When Linda Hamilton left the show in season 3, several episodes that were in the can had to be scrapped, and the writers killed Catherine off in the season premiere. FanonDiscontinuity ensued, and viewers lost interest in the much darker storyline that followed.
