** When Kuririn/Krillin meets the Grand Elder, the latter reveals he has only a short amount of time to live. He does die because of his old age, but the progress was accelerated by Freeza's action. When the Grand Elder is revived by the Dragon Balls, he only gains the stolen lifespan back.

He does die because of his old age, but the progress was accelerated by Freeza's action. When the Grand Elder is revived by the Dragon Balls, he only gains the stolen lifespan back. But that's long enough for him to put his affairs in order, appointing his eldest son Tsuno as the new Grand Elder and ensuring that the Namek Dragon Balls would remain functional.

* In the VideoGame/TeamFortress2 animation "Expiration Date" it's revealed that the teleporters used by the teams cause rumors to form in whatever goes through them. Thus, they all have three days to live.[[spoiler:However, it's subverted when it's revealed that the "tumors" were some kind of bizarre life form that can only form in an environment of pure wheat.]]

** Also, it turns out that the reason for the game is that [[spoiler:the god of that world's days are numbered, and the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt world will end]] if that happens before he finds a successor]]. Why that issue needs to be solved with a [[ThereCanBeOnlyOne no holds barred Battle Royale]] is anyone's guess, but GodIsEvil in this series.
** Yuno (for reasons unrelated to her health). Her days are numbered because she essentially volunteers to die at the game's end so that Yuki can become a god.

* TerryBrooks played with this trope in ''The Wishsong of Shannara''. Bremen informs Allanon that if he continues with the quest the heroes are on, he will not live to see its end. Bremen also informs him what it will be that kills him and why it must happen. Allanon isn't thrilled with this news and, briefly, does try to avoid a confrontation with his future killer. When he accepts his death is inevitable and absolutely necessary, he chooses to FaceDeathWithDignity thus ensuring that the Cycle of Magic can come to a close once the quest is completed.

* In the ''[[{{Series.Heroes}} Heroes]]'' episode "Seven Minutes to Midnight", a waitress named Charlie is murdered in the diner in which she worked. In a later episode in that season, "Six Months Ago", Hiro travels back in time to prevent Charlie's death, only to find out that [[spoiler:she has a blood clot in her brain that will kill her soon, no matter what]].
** And then, in a surprising twist in the FAR later "Once Upon a Time in Texas", [[spoiler: Hiro returns to the past ''again'', crosses his own timeline, and saves her and removes the clot in a particularly risky trade by effectively [[NiceJobBreakingItHero telling still morally-confused Sylar]] [[WhatTheHellHero that he is destined to be a villain.]] Hiro ends up telling him that by the time he's come back, Sylar had already died alone. He managed to prevent Charlie's doom and (unknowingly mis)inform Sylar of his own.]]

** During the events of the Kamen Rider #4 netmovies, [[spoiler:it is confirmed that Takumi DID in fact die in the last scene of Faiz. This is told to us by the Kaido/the Snake Orphenoch (an old acquaintance of Takumi) who survived as he didn't change into his Orphenoch form for the last decade. This reveal is considered problematic, as Takumi as Faiz has appeared in a few preceeding crossover events. However, the last significant one, kamen Rider Taisen, retconed significant events from Faiz's series, and was a near-universally derided. (the writer of the 'hero taisen' films have been criticized as knowing nothing about the franchise he has not himself written) Thus, many take Yongou's events as correcting the timeline after it had been screwed up, as it ends with Faiz's timeline restored to how it was before a lot of these crossovers, and at the very least the movies Kamen Rider Taisen and Super Hero Taisen GP (where Takumi was also present) being stripped from continuity in their entirety. This has been a widely applauded turn of events.]]

* The main character in Jack Ritchie's "For All the Rude People" was diagnosed with a terminal illness which gave him two or three months to live, if he was lucky. He decided to spend his remaining time disposing of everyone who'd ever been unreasonably rude to another person, starting with the candy store owner who'd snapped at him for spending "all day" deciding what to buy with his "lousy nickel" when he was a child.
