* ''Podcast/RedPandaAdventures'':
** The heroes have enough experience dealing with supervillains that they never assume one is truly dead unless they can absolutely confirm it. One story arc begins with the BigBad acting with the M.O. of the Golden Claw, a villainess with a tendency towards {{Body Surf}}ing and {{Brain Upload}}ing to cheat death and avoid justice. Despite this and the Flying Squirrel's insistence it has to be her, the Red Panda insists both the Claw and a clone of the Claw were both dead and he'd examined the bodies. Indeed, the BigBad of that arc is not the Golden Claw but rather Professor Zombie, who learned the Claw's tricks during their time as cellmates.
** Nazi scientist Friedrich von Schlitz has survived numerous things that should have killed him, including assassination attempts and being left to rot in a bubble dimension. He doesn't truly meet his end until near the end of the series when he's forcibly taken to ground zero of [[spoiler: the A-Bomb testing site at Trinity, New Mexico]].

[[folder:Roleplay]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', a bunch of notable characters die off in a blaze of glory or rather unceremoneously, including major protagonists and antagonists. In the verse, AnyoneCanDie, and this includes even the gods themselves.
* ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'': Everybody except the winners of the game and Burton Harris, due to some BodyDouble antics in Burton's case. He ends up dying anyway. Also. some handlers are fond of putting fake 'Student deceased' messages in their posts when it seems as if the characters have died but are actually alive. (very uncommon though, and it's invariably revealed to not be the case). Also: Maxie Dasai To escape in V3
* Rather difficult to pull off in ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'', since the Cure resurrects anyone who dies with it still in their body, but Red managed it by avoiding [[ImplacableMan Ace]] (who administers the Cure to everyone in the facility) until he was free of it and then killing himself and [[DeaderThanDead obliterating his body with a bomb]]. Bella's death is also permanent given that she's the only one never exposed to the Cure.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* There are two deaths that are played completely straight in ''WebAnimation/TheFrolloShow'':
** In one scene of ''Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita'', [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Lefou]]'s mangled corpse can be seen. Later in Hell, he's shown falling into the Sea of Darkness, which states that if anyone falls into it, he or she is finished off for real.
** The later scene also shows Hans Frollo having a chance to escape death. As he flies up, however, shadowy hands grab him and devour his soul, leaving his body to rot. These hands are revealed to be the Hell Guards in ''Leet Fighters'' episode 6, where [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt Kneesocks]] states that "consuming those who dare death is their rule!"
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'':.
** Church and Tex both fall victim to this thrice. [[spoiler:The original Church and Tex, also known as Artificial Intelligence Programs Alpha and Beta, were destroyed when Washington activated the EMP at the end of season 6. Both returned in different forms: Church as Epsilon, the fragment of Alpha that contained his memories, and Tex as the memories of her that Epsilon removed from his head. Epsilon-Tex was "forgotten" by Epsilon at the end of season 9 and was erased from existence. Epsilon-Church destroyed himself at the end of season 13, fragmenting himself into the memories of the other A.I. that once formed the Alpha in order to be able to power the modified Meta suit worn by Tucker. Finally, to really put the nail in the coffin Doctor Leonard Church, the base for the Alpha and Beta (the latter as a by-product of the memories of his deceased wife Allison) committed suicide with his daughter's pistol at the end of season 10. Church and Tex are both effectively DeaderThanDead.]]
** The Meta, formerly Agent Maine, was long presumed to have survived his fall at the end of ''Revelation''. He was later confirmed to be deceased, having drowned in his suit due to the four piercing wounds dealt to him by Tucker.
** Isaac Gates, alias "Felix", first evaded death after [[spoiler:having a spaceship dropped on top of him]]. However, he was killed and confirmed to be deceased shortly after being blown off the top of Chorus' Communication Temple in the next episode when his partner Samuel Ortez, alias "Locus", picked up and activated his sword, a feat that can only be done when the sword's previous holder is dead.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Part Timers'': At the end of episode 19, "First Kiss Fail", Mads seemingly falls off of the roof to her death, [[HopeSpot but actually lands safely on a pile of car wash rags.]] [[MoodWhiplash Immediately afterwards, she is struck and killed by a car.]] The final episode, [[ILoveTheDead "Ghost Sex"]], [[TearJerker ends with her ghost moving on to the afterlife,]] [[BittersweetEnding confirming that Mads is indeed gone for good.]]
* In ''Literature/{{Pyrrhic}}'' so far Chase Traviss, Zelda Swift, Tina King, Sonny Chance, Xenia Daugman, Tom Tucker, and Benjamin Rogers have died. Being that this is inspired by ''Literature/BattleRoyale'', it's likely the list will continue to grow.
* The ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' zigzags this trope. There is no definitive canon, so no matter how dead someone is, someone will probably write a tale about them later. Mostly played straight with dr. Kondraki, who's author left the wiki due to unfortunate circumstances. Most readers and writers consider his death in ''The King is Dead'' ([[spoiler: Assassinated by Gears on orders from the O5s]]) or ''Portraits of your Father'' ([[spoiler:Suicide]])to be canon.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Videos]]
* ''WebVideo/HeroHouse'' has a a shocking example, being one of the very few interpretations where [[spoiler: Superman]] is killed off for real. In the first episode, no less!
* Creator/AchievementHunter:
** [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in the "Heist" episodes of ''[[LetsPlay/AchievementHunterGrandTheftAutoSeries Let's Play Grand Theft Auto]] [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV V]]'' series. Once a heist has officially started, if any member of the Fake AH Crew gets killed, he does not get to continue on with the Heist and gets no payment. This is further set up by having the crew member's audio muted and the footage focused on the remaining crew members for the remainder of the Heist.
** The ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' Let's Play series "Ya Dead Ya Dead" uses the same principle. The series starts out with nine Achievement Hunters in a new Minecraft world, playing on Hardcore Survival mode. If someone dies, they're out - for the rest of the series.
* In ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'', there's actually a funeral pyre ''and'' ReallyDeadMontage to let the viewer know that Ma-Ti definitely will NOT be coming back.
* ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic'': [[Film/PatchAdams Dr. Bitch Spasms]], lampshaded in Nostalgia Critic's Top 11 Fuckups Part III.
-->'''Critic:''' I bet you thought he'd come in here and do something funny, but nope! I shot him! He's still lying there on my living room floor... I really should do something about that.
* ''WebVideo/VinesauceTomodachiLife'' has a lot of this.
** Those who are unambiguously dead include [[spoiler:HOTDOG, Ghoul Cunt, Lolly, Toad, Levi, CD-i Link, Big Face, Balegdah, Jack & Jill, and Bub Skebulba (who are [[AssimilationPlot assimilated]] by the Jahns and subsequently driven away), as well as Wii Fit Trainer (who is evicted by Vinny under the Jahns' control; she's said to have been killed).]]
** The fate of several other islanders depend on whether or not you think "eviction" (''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'''s term for deleting an islander) [[ReleasedToElsewhere is a codeword for death]] (as implied by [[spoiler:Wii Fit Trainer being "killed" by eviction, and Two-Faced being threatened with death during ''Survivor Edition'']]). If you do, then the count expands to include [[spoiler:Bonzi, Dolan, Skelorita, Skeleton, Dheerse, Birdo, Broccoli, Two Faced, and Seabiscuit.]] This is notably ''averted'' with Music/DavidBowie; his Mii was definitely "released" after the real man died of cancer.

* Any non main spirits that fall in battle in ''VisualNovel/EienNoAselia'' are killed off. Main spirits result in a game over. On the first playthrough, Kouin and Kyouko are killed off and can be in later playthroughs as well if you don't do the third chapter exactly right.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Aladdin}}: The Return of Jafar'', the titular villain is killed when his lamp is kicked into lava by Iago, an act that cements that Iago [[HeroesFrontierStep really is sincere about his]] HeelFaceTurn. Jafar explodes in a ball of light, and disappears forever. The [[WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries cartoon series that followed]], which ''Return of Jafar'' was meant to introduce, kept Jafar permanently gone outside of a few mentions of his name, ensuring he truly was dead. The GrandFinale ''The King of Thieves'' also insists that the events will happen "without Jafar and all of his malice," and sticks to it.
%%* Gallaxhar in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens''.
* An in-universe example: any video game character who dies outside of their game in ''WesternAnimation/WreckItRalph'' is dead for good, as opposed to just respawning a moment later. True to Disney tradition, the only ones who actually ''do'' are the BigBad, Turbo, and several thousand Cy-Bugs.

* This is one of the functions of "exiling" in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''. While there are lots of ways to bring back cards from the graveyard (to the point that whole strategies are built around it), it is essentially impossible for anything to get something out of the exile zone except for the card that put it there (there are a number of cards that temporarily stick something in the exile zone as a way to make their effect work within the rules, or that exile something and specify some specific way of getting it back).

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' is where DeathIsCheap, but an epic intraplanar Assassin's guild called [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Garrote]] makes this their modus operandi. Long story short, they're known for getting the job done and making it ''stays'' done. Not even DivineIntervention nor RealityWarping can bring back a person thoroughly disposed by The Garrote.
