* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

** 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.

However, it later turns out that she survived her fall and was [[HesJustHiding really hiding]] from her adversaries.

* Vic Vance is killed in a gun battle mere minutes into ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity'', but later appears in its prequel, ''GrandTheftAutoViceCityStories'' as the protagonist. This trope only works, however, if one plays the games in chronological order.
* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'': in Trevor's introductory cutscene, he walks up to Johnny Klebitz (the lead protagonist of the ''GrandTheftAutoIVTheLostAndDamned'') and, after a short conversation, proceeds to bash the latter's brains in. The mission immediately following this has Trevor massacre all of the surviving members from the Alderney chapter, including Terry Thorpe and Clay Simons. Additionally, Ashley Butler can be killed by Trevor as she's grieving over Johnny's body; if not, she is revealed in a news report to have died during a meth orgy.
* Bottles in ''{{Banjo-Kazooie}}'' serves to teach Banjo and Kazooie new moves. In the opening cutscene of ''Banjo-Tooie'', he gets killed off by Gruntilda, with some LampshadeHanging: "He wasn't the favorite character in ''Banjo-Kazooie'' anyway," Kazooie says. He comes back to life in the end, though.
