* Realising that he is near defeat, a sympathetic villain secretly delivers himself a killing blow, and dies shortly after the heroes arrive. A variant of {{Seppuku}} named ''kagebara'', this plot twist is extremely popular in Japanese animation, manga and theater performances. This twist tends to be used exclusively for the AntiHero or WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds class villain.

* In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'', Franchise/{{Superman}} and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} travel across the galaxy to find Warworld -a massive, planet-killing weapon/artificial world- before alien overlord Mongul can appropiate it. Mongul seizes Warworld before they can stop him, though. Superman states that they are too late, and his cousin reasons that they will have to break Mongul's new toy, then.

* ''TanzDerVampire'' lets Professor Abronsius and his assistant Alfred believe they've saved the beautiful Sarah from the clutches of the vampire lord Graf von Krolock, complete with a dramatic getaway from the ball where she was the Graf's main course. All seems well, and Alfred and Sarah embrace, at which point Sarah reveals a shiny new pair of fangs and attacks Alfred, draining him and making him a vampire too. [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou The rest of the vampires then arrive to claim the audience themselves as their new prey...]]

** The story gives a glimmer that Veidt's plan may yet at least be exposed, potentially mitigating its intended result, but the story ends before it can be explored.

** The story gives a glimmer that Veidt's plan may yet at least be exposed, potentially mitigating its intended result, but the story ends before it can be explored. Of course, considering that his [[WellIntentionedExtremist goal was to prevent]] WorldWarIII, exposure of the plan at that point would [[ShootTheShaggyDog probably just make things worse]].

* In the climax of WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Volume 3, Ruby goes back into the grimm infested school to save Pyrrha, who is trying to stop Cinder's evil plans by herself on top of Beacon Tower. In an epic CallBack to the first Volume, she runs straight up the tower, triumphantly landing... just in time to see Cinder shoot an arrow through Pyrrha's chest. Though the trauma awakens her EleventhHourSuperpower, thwarting at least part of Cinder's plan, she fails to save her friend (for the second time that day).

The next season also reveals that [[BigGood Professor Ozpin]] has also been killed by the time Pyrrha engaged Cinder. At least Cinder is left with only one eye and unable to speak.

* In ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'', Quirrell strongly hints that he turned [[spoiler:''the Pioneer plaque'']] into a [[SoulJar Horcrux]]. This, all by itself, would make it nigh-impossible to permanently kill him -- but when he finally admits to [[spoiler:being Lord Voldemort]], he adds that [[spoiler:he's made ''hundreds'' of Horcruxes, having stopped counting long ago at a hundred and seven]]. Harry ends up defeating him by [[spoiler:Memory Charming him, then transfiguring him into a piece of jewelry until he can try rehabilitating him. Since Voldemort never actually dies, he won't be brought BackFromTheDead]].

* Just about all the endings of the original ''{{Drakengard}}''. The canonical one plays it straightest: You're too late to stop Furiae's death and the breaking of the last seal, and have to stop Manah's [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever final form]] single-handedly. The other endings are ''some'' variant of this as well (usually involving being too late to stop Furiae from kicking the bucket somehow), but with copious amounts of MindScrew thrown into the mix.
