  • A Diplomatic Visit: The Storm King in chapter 7 of the sequel Diplomat at Large. Knocked out a window, landing in the middle of the battlefield where his army is fighting Equestria's and their allies, and gets a sword through his heart - conveniently unarmored thanks to Pharynx shattering said armor earlier.

  • In Perfection is Overrated, the death toll includes all of the SUEs, Kyoko, Ishigami, Yukariko, Miyu, Nagi, The Usurper and The Obsidian Lord. Unlike in canon, anyone who dies here stays dead, as a result of Miyu's destruction late in the fic.
  • In Queen of All Oni, a Jackie Chan Adventures fanfic, Daolon Wong dies in prison, and his apprentice Lung is later killed in a classic Hoist by His Own Petard moment: he captures Jade, trying to break her will and control her, but is killed when her bodyguards show up and MOW through his defenses, also an example of Laser-Guided Karma, since he nearly KILLED Jade, as he underestimated how stubborn she was.
  • In Pokémon Black, the move "Curse" kills the opponent's Pokémon. You can also use Curse on the trainers. Even the player is killed in the end (leading to an unescapable black screen and the file being deleted upon restarting the game).
  • The Pony POV Series has a relatively small death count:
    • In the main timeline, Shining Armor's friends Sunset and Private Ranger are all killed in action while stopping a mega storm.
    • In the Dark World Arc, it being a thousand years later, nearly everyone who wasn't immortal (or made immortal by Discord) is long dead. However, at the end Rarity's newly ascended Alicorn self, Queen Libra, is allowed to resurrect everyone who was killed by Discord or his forces, but due to the rules, some DO stay dead. Big Mac died of old age and Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy both died well after their natural life span, for example, so they do stay dead. Cadence was also killed in a Last Stand and didn't return, but she's a goddess so she is simply helping from the afterlife. Queen Chrysalis was also absorbed by Cadence and is likewise dead for good.
  • The The Legend of Spyro fanfic The Portal has Scorcher being killed quite gruesomely by a Dark One.
  • The Royal Reunion is a Frozen Alternate Universe Fic where Elsa and Anna's parents didn't actually die in the shipwreck. King Gaspar and Queen Malin became amnesiacs for a few years, explaining why they never returned home. In the 28th chapter, Gaspar is stabbed and dies for real this time.
  • In the Magical Girl Crisis Crossover Shattered Skies: The Morning Lights:
    • Viluy gets vaporized by Nanoha's Starlight Breaker in Chapter 7... but this is averted when she comes Back from the Dead in Chapter 23. She is later revealed to have uploaded her consciousness into a cloned body, generated using organic material from Dead End's prisoners. She was killed again in Chapter 29 by a completely enraged Alph, for good this time, as the rest of her clones are destroyed by a combination of Cure Marine's Marine Dynamite and Alph's plasma charge explosions, rendering her Out of Continues.
    • On the heroes' side, Milky Rose is killed in battle with a horde of Daimon in Chapter 9, and Candy is turned to dust by the Time Reaper in Chapter 12. Sailor Mars's familiars, Phobos and Deimos, are killed by a Brainwashed Sailor Uranus before she destroys the command center.
    • Everyone in every post-Go Princess Precure continuity is erased by "the entity".
    • The Will of the Book of Darkness self-destructs both herself and the Book, both of which are then consumed by a massive time-storm in the wake of the attack by "the entity", to ensure that their powers can never be misused again.
    • Alph's sanity deteriorates entirely by Chapter 38 due to the effects of Viluy's pseudo-virus, and she is mercy killed by Fate to spare her any more suffering.

  • Viral, in Tengen Toppa Gurren Solvernia.
  • In Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Supergirl crossover The Vampire of Steel, Kara Zor-El dumps M'Nagaleh into an anti-matter universe where the eldritch monster implodes. Later Buffy and Kara work together to stake Zol-Am, a Kryptonian vampire who turns to ashes.
  • The Bully: Iona MacEachern and her boyfriend Craig Sullivan were drowned by their swimming teacher in "Harry Smith's Swimming Lesson", Steven McMullen received a "poisonous government injection" in "Harry Smith's Poisonous Government Injection" and four characters were killed by Euan Milton in "The Destruction of Colham High School".
  • From Young Justice: Darkness Falls: We have Vandal Savage, Glorious Godfrey, Volcanna, Doomsday, Klarion. A pretty high body count considering the canon show was a bit more conservative with its deaths. In additions, several heroes are either Not Quite Dead or come Back from the Dead, meaning there's less of a net loss than this list might indicate.
  • From the Gensokyo 20XX series:
    • 20XX and 20XXI: Youmu, Cirno, Daiyousei, Remilia, Wriggle, Reisin, Shinki, Alice, Marisa, Sanae, Suwako, Flandre, and Eirin.
    • 20XXII: Yuugi, Keine, and Ran's babies are revealed to have passed away and Aya dies some time during.
    • 20XXIII: Meiling and Patchouli, along with Seija in a Karmic Death
    • 20XXIV: Sakuya, Reimu's mother, Ran's babies (save Yume Ni and An). As of chapter 50 in Gensokyo 20XXIV, some of those characters were brought back from the dead, through Yukari bending some of the borders of time to bring some of them to the future.
    • 20XXV: Koishi, Satori, Yume Ni, An (being revealed to be Dead All Along), and, apparently, as of chapter 109, Ren. Along that line, it is implied (but left unclear) that Yuuka has passed away and, by the 120th chapter, Kosuzu is mentioned to be "long gone", implying that she had died a long time prior.
