* ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' is one of the few direct sequels in the franchise. If you marry [[spoiler:Elli]] the game kills off [[spoiler:her grandmother Ellen]], who was a character in [[VideoGame/HarvestMoonOriginalSeries the original game]]. As the game takes place two generations in the future it's not "suddenly" to the characters however it is to gamers.

* 16 possible party members from the first ''BaldursGate'' game who make an appearance of sorts as [=NPCs=] in the sequel. Five are party-joinable members: of the rest, over half end up dead. Of particular note are Dynaheir and Khalid, who are killed off shortly before the game even begins - this being of import because the sequel assumes they were in your party at the end of the first game (which is highly likely assuming you played a Good alignment and met them early on in the main questline: the "canonical" party includes them and their respective partners Minsc and Jaheira, both party-joinable but newly single in the sequel, and Imoen who turns out to be [[spoiler: your sister]], and makes major plot points out of all of these events.) Of the rest: Faldorn ends up as an evil sidequest boss you have to kill, Montaron and Xzar both die (one onstage, one offstage) as a result of Harper/Zhentarim factional bickering, Ajantis is killed by your own party while both of you are under an illusion spell and you don't even get to learn his identity unless you have a paladin or knight in your own party, Tiax dies in a battle in the asylum, Safana is killed by werewolves in a battle which Coran will probably also die unless the players [[CurbStompBattle win the fight fast enough]]. With Viconia and Edwin also being party-joinable, only Quayle and Garrick actually survive their appearance as non-joinable [=NPCs=]

* Between ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', Capital Wasteland Brotherhood of Steel Elder Owyn Lyons dies of old age, and his daughter Sarah is either killed in battle or assassinated, resulting in [[AChildShallLeadThem the now grown Squire Maxson becoming Elder]] and reverting the chapter to the xenophobic and genocidal ways of its West Coast counterparts.

* Detective Bravura was a HeroAntagonist in the first ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'', and DaChief in the 2nd. He shows up early in the game during a firefight in which Max is ambushed, outnumbered and [[NoGearLevel unarmed]], appearing just long enough to shout a warning before he's gunned down. It's only technically a subversion that he lived (probably helped that he was shot in a hospital,) since for the rest of the game he's in critical condition, assumed dead any second, and has no further bearing on the plot.

A flashback scene in the 3rd game indicates he died of a heart attack between the 2nd and 3rd game, leaving Max with no influential allies left to get him out of the trouble he's always getting in.

* Mujari and possibly Teresa and Logan die in SyphonFilter: ''Logan's Shadow''. Since Sony has officially abandoned the series, we will never see it resolved. Alima Haddad, the chopper pilot who first appeared in ''Omega Strain'', also dies.

** Inverted with Wrex, the Council and Kaidan or Ashley, all of whom were significant characters in #1. Since their deaths are optional, they're written into much smaller roles in #2.
