* The Cheshire Cat from ''AmericanMcGeesAlice'' fits this trope very nicely, especially since the last bit of info he tries to impart is that the Queen of Hearts and Alice share the same mind.

* Duncan from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is introduced as TheObiWan after you lose everyone else in your Origin, only to be killed off a bit later, before he can even start acting this role. King Callinead can also be considered this, as long as you don't antagonize him.

* Yoshimo from ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate 2]]''. Mind you, ''you're'' the one who kills him, but showing that he's been an unwilling TheMole for the BigBad all along helps.

** Doubly so in King and Toroko's case, since [[spoiler: King and Toroko die at nearly the same time, with Toroko being killed by Quote and King dying as soon as Quote is done fighting Toroko. [[AlmostDeadGuy No matter how long it takes.]]]]

* Latios and Latias star in a prominent sidequest in the postgame of ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonRescueTeam'' which characterizes them enough to become this in ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' in which they get the "honor" of being the first [[OlympusMons Legendary Pokémon]] to be [[TakenForGranite turned into stone]] by the antagonist. Their functional deaths are frequently lamented by the partner character, and also kickstarts the game's case of CerebusSyndrome in the story's second half.

* Happens ''repeatedly'' in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' (to Josef, Minwu, Richard and Cid), to the point where the GBA EnhancedRemake (and every other one after it) had a bonus game, ''Dawn Of Souls'', made up entirely of playable characters who had died (and cameos from other non-playable characters who had also died), and now they're fighting on in the next life. In fact, parts of ''FFII'' felt more like a KillEmAll in a similar vein to [[AnyoneCanDie death-saturated]] stories like ''TheSilmarillion''.

** In the second season, [[spoiler:when Pete was introduced, it seemed like he was being set up to be a major character, as he was the most reasonable of the cabin group, and episode 1 even seemingly ended with a SadisticChoice between either Pete or his nephew, Nick. However, Pete becomes a SacrificialLion because no matter what choice you pick, Pete will die, and Nick will live.]]

* Zeratul was killed in [[VideoGame/StarcraftIILegacyOfTheVoid StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void]] while freeing Artanis from a link with his people called the Khala which the main villain corrupted and used to take over his body.
