* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', the main antagonist, [[spoiler:Sosuke Aizen]], does this to three characters [[spoiler:(Momo Hinamori, Rukia Kuchiki, and Halibel)]] at different times.
** [[spoiler:[[ImmortalHero And yet all of those people survived.]] As powerful and ruthless as he is, Aizen is ''really bad'' about not bothering to check whether his defeated enemies are actually ''dead'' and not just unconscious...and given the nature of the events, this leaves his death toll among the individuals [[NominalImportance who actually have names]] rather low.]]

Then you have any kind of [[ImAHumanitarian predatory monster]] who just thinks there's no point in wasting good meat. Alternatively, you have the villain who notes their underlings ''do'' still have some usefulness...but said [[HumanResources usefulness]] doesn't necessarily mean they need to be [[ZombieApocalypse alive]] to serve it.

* ''VisulaNovel/Ever17'' offers rare heroic example. [[spoiler:In the 17 years between the first [=LeMU=] incident, and the "Third Eye" project Dr Tanaka had collected enough evidence of villainous activity of [[GreaterScopeVillain Leiblich Pharmaceutical]] to completely destroy them, but she didn't touch them yet, because she needed them for the "Third Eye" project. However, once the project was done and she no longer needed them the evidence reached the right hands and Leiblich got wrecked.]]

[[spoiler:Unfortunately for Charlie, Jill Roberts was planning on being the FinalGirl -- with emphasis on ''Final''.

* In ''Anime/SwordArtOnlineTheMovieOrdinalScale'', Eiji joins up with Shigemura in the hopes of restoring the consciousness of the deceased Yuna, by stealing the memories of the SAO survivors (a process that might ''kill'' them all). After he gets beaten by Kirito, he tries to remind his employer that he promised to reunite him with Yuna, but Shigemura then says that, since Eiji spent the most time with Yuna, his memories are the most important ones and they'll be taken as well, much to his shock.
