* 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.

That isn't an inversion of this trope, it's just an aversion. An inversion would be characters who are dead in the first game and brought back for the sequel.
** 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.

* Irene Lew falls seemingly to her death from a cliff after being chased by Ryu Hayabusa's [[EvilTwin evil doppelganger]] in the opening sequence of ''[[NinjaGaiden Ninja Gaiden III]]''. However, it later turns out that she survived her fall and was [[HesJustHiding really hiding]] from her adversaries.

Added namespaces.
* 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.

* In ''{{Killzone}} 2'', the heroes of the original ''Killzone'' all appear as OlderAndWiser [=NPCs=] helping the new player character Sev, until they all end up getting killed over the course of the game. ''Killzone 3'' confirms that only Rico survived.

* Orthopox-13 in ''DestroyAllHumans 2''. To be fair, [[MissionControl he didn't confront]] [[VoiceWithAnInternetConnection much of the action]] in the first game, but it says something that he was '''''nuked in space''''' in the intro to the sequel; in fact, the crashing debris of the mothership is what creates the setting for the prologue. [[BrainUploading He does get better fairly quickly, though.]]

** ''[=MGS4=]'' also kills off two rather important characters from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', namely Para-Medic and Mr. Sigint, by retroactively establishing that they were actually DARPA Chief Donald Anderson and Dr. Clark, two characters who were killed off in the original ''MGS''. While a case could be made that Sigint was always meant to be a younger DARPA Chief (since the ending of ''[=MGS3=]'' establishes that Sigint later became a DARPA employee), the decision to reveal that Para-Medic was Dr. Clark was a bit more questionable. Aside from the fact that Dr. Clark never even appeared on-screen in ''MGS'' (being killed off two years prior to the events of the game), Dr. Clark was originally referred by male pronouns in the game, whereas Para-Medic is female. The attempted HandWave that the person who referred to her as a male never met her in person only serves to slightly disguise the blatant RetCon. *** This it actually not a RetCon, but rather the result of a translation error. Japanese does not use differentiated male/female pronouns often, and Dr Clark is apparently only described gender-neutrally in the original Japanese dialogue of MGS1. The HandWave about Naomi never meeting her is something of a half-hearted cover for it - the truth is that the idea of a male Dr Clark was apparently an incorrect assumption by the English translation team.
