* ''Series/TheLastManOnEarth'' does this to the extreme once a season, starting in season two. The characters in question always die within a minute of their first appearance and are always played by well-known actors:
** First, Tandy and Carol follow the others to a mansion in Malibu and discover they've found another survivor named Gordon (Creator/WillFerrell). Carol sneaks up behind him and yells "Boo!" This gives him a fatal heart attack.
** Then in season three, a man named Pat raids the mansion with a pair of men named Darrell and Lewis. Darrell is shot by Melissa and only has enough time to give a quick goodbye before succumbing to his wounds. Darrell is played by Creator/JonHamm while Melissa is played by January Jones. Essentially, [[Series/MadMen Betty Draper just shot Don.]]
** In season four, Pat returns and is shot by another survivor named Roy (Creator/JackBlack). Roy is in the middle of introducing himself when it turns out Pat isn't dead yet and kills him.

* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'': Ezekiel appears in the equivalent of four episodes of season one, barely spoke and after sending Women's Lib back about a century by being sexist to women, he was voted off first. In season two he appears more frequently, but only in the Aftermath episodes, and he talks even less. He comes back for season three, but is voted off first again - he appears in a few later episodes, but is no longer fully human for some reason, and ceases talking entirely. This is how he has been for the rest of the series up to this point. He was a very flat character; his main traits were being stubborn, having almost no social skills, and accidentally offending everyone, specifically women.

* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'':
** Nichol is introduced in the Hunter Exam arc as the AwesomenessByAnalysis character who can find even confidential information on his fellow examinees...and proceeds to be the first one to fail the exam as Tonpa and the Amori Brothers sabotage him through some unseen way.
** Of the fourteen princes of Kakin (who can be either male or female; they are called princes regardless), twelfth prince Momoze is the one with by far the least characterization, her most memorable trait being that she's a cute little girl. She is also the first one to be eliminated by death during the succession battle after the king announces his retirement.

** A straighter example from a non-ChekhovsGunman would be Frank Bryce, the {{Muggle}} gardener at the Riddle estate who gets an IntroOnlyPointOfView in the first chapter of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' and is murdered by Voldemort as the first chapter ends.

* ''Series/TwentyFour'': Gave us This was a recurring trope on ''Series/TwentyFour''. The series [[EstablishingSeriesMoment established this reputation]] by killing off Jack Bauer's original first boss, Richard Walsh, who died in just the second episode.episode. Perhaps the most extreme example for a named character is [[http://24.wikia.com/wiki/Joz Joz]], a bystander in Day 4 who is killed off ''four seconds'' after being introduced by name. Joz was subsequently [[DueToTheDead memorialized]] (only slightly tongue-in-cheek) in Jon Bois' ''24'' retrospective video, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_P52G4Kyq5M "I Wish Everyone Else Was Dead"]].
