* ''{{VisualNovel/DanganRonpa}}'' has Sayaka Maizono, the Ultimate Pop Sensation who's set up to be a LoveInterest and is effectively the {{Deuteragonist}} of the game until the first chapter, wherein she's the first to die. Another case would be Junko Enoshima, who gets publicly executed by the mastermind in the same Chapter for violating a rule. [[spoilers:Things are not how they seem in her case, however, as the "Junko" in the game is actually her twin sister Mukuro Ikusaba. The ''real'' Junko Enoshima is the one who orchestrated her twin's death, and she's also the mastermind behind the events of the game.]]

* ''{{VisualNovel/DanganRonpa}}'' has Junko Enoshima, who dies early on to show that the penalty for breaking the game's rules is real. As he kills her, Monokuma even says that he's invoking this trope ''by name''.

* The way ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars: Original Generations'' was set up, probably Lamia Loveless was turned into a SacrificialLamb to add suspense in OG Gaiden. So you get acquainted with her a lot in the OG 2 portion. Then in the bonus segment... she's shot down dead. Of course, when OG Gaiden comes out, it turns out to be just a set up for CliffHanger and she came back... well enough. She's not an EnsembleDarkHorse like Zero, though.
* In ''{{Persona 3}}'', a large bulk of the games boss fights come from the Full Moon Shadows, extremely powerful Shadows that each represent a different Tarot Arcana. You fight them all...except for Magician, the first to show appear, who is quickly killed by the Main Character in a cutscene.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Call of Duty}}'' series has this as a time-honored tradition, usually paired off with a SacrificialLion later on for added oomph.

* Ling in ''GrandTheftAutoChinatownWars'' is a very odd case of this, where she is on the cover of the game box, and the poster inside the game is practically a pin-up of her, and then she dies the second mission in.
