Anyone Can Die: Web Original

  • In The Gamers Alliance, a number of heroes and villains, including very prominent ones, have been killed off for real, some more dramatically than others.
  • A number of main characters in lonelygirl15 have been killed off unexpectedly, including lonelygirl15 herself.
  • KateModern has unexpectedly killed off a few major recurring characters, often midseries, quite casually, and with bodies shown so that we know they aren't just hiding. It also once killed off a central character offscreen, with no fanfare, as a major plot point.
  • Although the situation was averted, one of the main characters came very close of dying in the imageboard adventure Ruby Quest. Weaver says he was prepared to kill him off had the players made any harsh decisions. It is likely that such situations might arise once again in the future.
  • Survival of the Fittest exemplifies this trope, being based off of Battle Royale. Of course, if you really want to get into the nitty gritty aspect of it, it's much more of a Kill 'em All. This is doubly true in that the vast majority of deaths (or at least, when they are to occur) are determined randomly.
  • Tech Infantry killed off main characters, supporting cast, and Big Bads with abandon. Then came the Y3K Arc, which killed off pretty much every major legend in the TI Universe, before killing off pretty much everyone in the Galaxy.
  • As of the penultimate episode of There Will Be Brawl, there are more dead characters than the number of fighters in the original Super Smash Brothers game.
  • Fate Nuovo Guerra, a RPG forum based on Fate/stay night. This trope applies to every Master or Servant, whether it be the most evil Jerk Ass or the Cheerful Child.
  • In Fine Structure, this becomes very clearly the case after a mid-series Wham Episode.
  • In Plague and Treachery on the Oregon Trail, due to the nature of the game anyone could die at any moment. To the point where the readers made a betting pool over who they thought would die next.
  • We're Alive has killed several minor characters including Bill, Tommy, and Samantha in season 1 and Kalani along with every Red Shirt Tower resident at the end of season 2. Angel died in season 3.
  • The creator of Dark Dream Chronicle refers to herself as a character killer. This is accurate.
  • Everyone dies in Happy Tree Friends. Repeatedly.
  • Normally, this trope is pretty much averted in the Whateley Universe. But it's front and center in the "Loose Cannons" storyline. Of the original twelve teenagers, five are already dead. And the story is only on its second chapter.
  • In Einsteinian Roulette, the convicts the game focuses on are very, very likely to have either tame, temporary deaths with the loss of a few limbs and organs or a full-blown perma-death.
  • Spectral Shadows contains this. It's expected in serial 2, since it takes place in a virtual reality game where you respawn the next day if you have any extra lives. By serial 11 we learn that Raelian Ommandeer is dead, and that Sir Jonathan Rhoades' son, Perry, is a reincarnation of Rael. In fact, according to a draft of an ad banner for this series, one of the words used in the ad is "Death".
  • In Worm, a large number of minor and several major characters have been killed off, often quite unceremoniously.
