* ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'': When this ''Series/DoctorWho'' SpinOff was being developed, the crew went further than usual by casting a well-respected actress as the Sacrificial Lamb and involving her character, Suzie, heavily in pre-publicity (including a special feature in the RadioTimes), to increase the shock when she bought it. The show then got more mileage from both character and casting by bringing Suzie BackFromTheDead temporarily for a later episode.

* ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'': There's the waiters Gary and Rich who toss the salad. Don't know who they are? Yeah, we don't either, except for that London and Maddie injure them badly with the kitchen doors and so the two girls are forced to do the salad work in their places. Of course, these two girls not having any restaurant training make a horrendous salad by spraying vegetables everywhere with their careless spinning and tossing. The fact they had to made this salad for an important food critic doesn't help too much.

** Combo. The viewer barely knows who he is other than he was a chubby friend of Jesse's, and his assassination deeply saddens Jesse. Jesse then gets offended when Walt asks who Combo is when he breaks down the news to Walt.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** The three members of the Night's Watch (Will, Gared, and Ser Waymar Royce) who appear in the pilot. Will was a ranger who was executed for desertion by Ned Stark. Gared and Ser Waymar were killed by a White Walker while on a ranging north of the Wall.
** Jory squeaked in, in just under the 5 episode limit. While significantly more badass than most examples, he still counts. His death is just a way of showing things are getting serious, without a major character being killed off.

* Kaylee of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' is set up to be this, getting shot by Dobson in the very first episode, but subverted in that she actually survives, with Mal telling Simon that she was dead serving as a psychotic (and hilarious) joke on him.

** Had Lisa Faulkner, who was sacrificed in the ''second'' episode, but shocking nonetheless.

** Had Lisa Faulkner, who was sacrificed in the ''second'' episode, but shocking nonetheless. Arguably, ''more'' so. Given that she'd survived the first episode and seemed like a major character, audiences could be forgiven for thinking she'd be in the series long-term. Alas, no.

* ''The Phone'': In the pilot, the first team was introduced and competed against the second team per a normal RealityTV show until about maybe half an hour (tops) into it when they don't complete the given task and are subsequently eliminated and DROWNED.

* ''Series/PrimevalNewWorld'' introduces Evan's best friend and Dylan's partner, Drake, who has all the makings of being the TeamDad for the show. He's killed halfway into the pilot to establish that the show is going to be ''much'' darker compared to ''Series/{{Primeval}}''.
