* In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', a great number of the toys have been sold, broken or lost in the time period [[BusCrash between 2 and 3]] making for a DarkerAndEdgier feel. Especially saddening is the absence of Bo Peep, Woody's love interest -- when she is mentioned, Woody looks utterly miserable.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' series, both Lord Farquaad and Prince Charming have pretty mundane deaths; the former is simply eaten by Dragon, and the latter has a piece of scenery from the stage production he's running fall on top of him (pushed by the same dragon).
* Sir Lionel in ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot''. You'd think a death of the father of our heroine would be a bit more spectacular. But he gets whacked in the head with Ruber's rock-hard mace as they try to fend him off. It isn't dramatic either. Ruber flees at the end of the scene and then they notice Sir Lionel is dead.
