Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Somebody is involved in something dirty, or just did something nasty. Could be The Government, could be The Mafia or The Syndicate, could be General Ripper, a Corrupt Corporate Executive, or an Ancient Conspiracy. No matter what bad guy was involved, somebody saw it all, heard it all, or somehow caught wind of what's going down (or what went down), and the bad guy in question has found out about the witness.
Since the witness now knows too much, the bad guy's entire scheme may come crashing down, so they aim to "silence" the witness in some manner, through bribery, blackmail, intimidation, or even murder.
A common variant is that the person who purportedly knows too much doesn't actually know anything at all (or at least, doesn't understand what knowledge they have) — but the overly paranoid conspirators believe that they do, thus leading to their campaign of persecution. There's a good chance the hero will eventually get sick of being relentlessly hounded/threatened/shot at by the conspirators and start fighting back. In the process, they usually learn the "real" secret anyway by constantly coming into contact with said conspirators at every turn and eventually will find a way to bring the plan to ruin. The ironic conclusion, of course, is that if the Big Bad had just relaxed and left the person alone, they'd have succeeded.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })If it isn't the hero getting persecuted, it will likely be someone the hero cares about, which will usually prompt either a bodyguard scenario as the hero tries to protect them against the bad guys, or a Roaring Rampage of Revenge if the loved one is killed. Either way, it's an excellent MacGuffin.
The most common motive for bad guys to go after innocent people, and also part of the reason that the FBI has the Witness Protection Program (in addition to protecting witnesses from retribution after they testify).
Another, less sympathetic variation occurs when a character learns a guilty secret possessed by another character and decides it would be a profitable enterprise to blackmail the second character in exchange for their silence. This one usually overlaps with Asshole Victim, since the second character understandably won't like the idea of being on the hook to a sleazy blackmailer for the rest of their life, and is likely to decide that getting rid of the blackmailer will cost them less in the long run than paying up. If the blackmail victim's guilty secret is that they are a murderer, this may also add elements of Too Dumb to Live to the blackmailer — after all, someone who's already killed at least one person is unlikely to have many qualms about bumping off someone else, particularly if that someone else is trying to exploit them for money.

In Watchmen, two people knew the same thing:
One is killed because he knows the details of a plan, even though he had no intention of revealing it; he had told Moloch, who simply didn't understand what he heard and would be no threat to its success even if he did understand it.
The other (not Moloch, by the way) is killed because he knows the plan and is going to reveal it. His murder may have been pointless, though, because he'd mailed his journal to the "New Frontiersman". Whether anyone of importance would believe what that Conspiracy Theorist tabloid reports is unclear, though.

In Shinrai: Broken Beyond Despair, this is the reason why Kotoba was killed. The mastermind behind the murder plan hadn't necessarily wanted to kill the victim, but needed an additional accomplice, and Kotoba fit the bill, being someone who was easy to manipulate and someone the mastermind didn't mind killing. Once the mastermind is almost done with the plan, Momoko knocks Kotoba out, ties him up and sets the breaker room on fire to create a distraction while she hangs herself. It's possible to save Kotoba, but since he's in no condition to talk, it's up to Raiko to explain what happened.

Detective Conan features many, MANY cases:
The series starts with this trope: Amateur Sleuth Shinichi Kudo comes across a mysterious black man extorting from another man, but he fails to see the black man's partner, who sneaks on him and knocks him out cold with a lead pipe. The two try to force feed him a poison pill plus a serum... but the pill only shrinks him into a body of a child and assumes the alias of Conan Edogawa.
In the Ski Lodge case, this was the reason for Minako Mochizuki's murder: she found out that two of her three favorite teachers were involved in a fraud, so she tried to confront them... so the two strangled her to death and then made it look like she committed suicide. And the third teacher? She killed them as part of her plot to get revenge for Minako's murder.
In the Luxury Liner case, Tatsuo got beaten to death by his wife Aki's cousin Ichiro because Tatsuo saw him trying to drop the killing weapon (a knife which he used to kill his grandfather) in the sea.
The Non-Serial Movie Phantom of Baker Street reveals the immediate reason for Hiroki's death is because he found out Schneider was the direct descendant of Jack the Ripper.
In another Non-Serial Movie, a boy named Touma Tachihara witnessed a murder committed by one of his mother's friends, who then kidnapped him and tried to kill him. However, Touma then fell off a cliff and fell in a coma, only waking up eight years later. The killer targets him again, fearing that if he ever recovered his memories, he'd denounce him.
Almost happens to Ran Mouri twice, once in the anime/manga and later in a Non-Serial Movie. In the first, she steps inside several rooms where guys are undressing, but one of them has a secret... and he's the killer of the case. In the second, she clearly sees the face of a murderer who immediately tries to shoot her dead, and even when she has a huge Trauma-Induced Amnesia he still attempts to murder her.
In the "Timeless Sakura Love" case, Sumiko Kobayashi finds herself in this position after she stumbles in a murder scene and catches a glimpse of the culprit. Good thing that Shiratori, Sato and the Detective Kids manage to help her and keep her safe.
It's implied that Akemi Miyano might have been at the receiving end of this trope. The Black Organization couldn't outright murder the woman because they needed her to keep her younger sister Shiho/Sherry's loyalty in check, but once it was clear that Akemi was in love with a man who had been The Mole in the group, they decided to create a situation where they could eliminate her by having her do a bank heist she was supposed to fail... and which ended up with two agents of the group, coincidentally the same two who shrunk Shinichi, shooting her dead.

Fire Emblem:
Takes place twice in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones: Some characters know well what the Hell is going on in the Empire of Grado (the Cleric Natasha whose mentor, a well-respected high priest, was killed for discovering that the Emperor was dead and revived as an Artificial Human and the Shaman Knoll, Lyon's second-hand in the project to revive said Emperor). The Empire frames both of them as traitors; Natasha has to flee from her homeland and Knoll is imprisoned and slated for execution... but in-game, both survive and join Eirika's (in Natasha's case) or Ephraim's (in Knoll's) troupes.
Towards the end of the Conquest route in Fire Emblem Fates, the Smug Snake Iago figures out that the Avatar is a traitor when his men discover a certain someone who was meant to be killed. After hearing his accusations, the Nohrian royal siblings decide that it would be better to kill Iago and Hans to protect their foster sibling's life rather than face the wrath of an enraged Garon. Iago and Hans really don't help their case by directly attacking the Avatar in front of the Nohrian siblings, too.

Honor Harrington: Defied in Crown of Slaves. After Thandi Palane resigns from Solarian Commodore Luis Roszak's staff, his XO suggests eliminating her on this basis, but are warned away by the fact that she is connected to knowledgeable and hardened killers (read: Victor Cachat, Anton Zilwicki, and Jeremy X) who would take bloody vengeance, compounding the fact that the person who knows too much is the one they would go to for assassinations in the first place. More to the point, the Sollies are fairly certain that Thandi will keep her mouth shut, and they generally liked her anyway.

Played with in The Simpsons:
Homer followed his coworkers to the Stonecutters' headquarters. He gets inside by falling through the skylight and is instantly surrounded. They declare that he has seen to much and must pay "the ultimate penalty". So they toss him out the front door.
In "New Kids on the Bleech", after Lisa discovers the Navy's conspiracy to recruit people via Subliminal Seduction, Lt. Smash says ominously "Well, now that you know, I'm afraid I can't let you leave." But Lisa already left.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Variant. Robbie Reyes (AKA Ghost Rider) beats Daisy Johnson (AKA Quake) in a fight. Since he has the supernatural ability to know who deserves to die (and she doesn't deserve it), he lets her live. She shows up at his work the next day, making it clear she knows everything there is to know about him. They fight again, she gets knocked out, and she wakes up to find him going through her stuff. She knows too much about him to let live, so he's looking for any sign that she does deserve to die, despite what his abilities say. In the end, he doesn't find anything, and they start working together pretty much because they're tired of fighting.

In The Numair Chronicles it's heavily implied that Faziy was killed to prevent her from revealing too much about Prince Stiloit's death. Arram suspects that Stiloit's death was premeditated rather than caused by an errant storm and that Faziy had something to do with it, given her connection to the lightning snakes. His masters and friends advise him to keep this to himself lest he meet Faziy's fate.

Lyrical Nanoha:
Used as a Tear Jerker in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's when the Wolkenritter try to kill Nanoha and Fate to protect Hayate's identity as the master of the Book of Darkness. It's made painfully clear that they really didn't want to go through with it, but they were scared and desperate.
Bell Matera of StrikerS Sound Stage X, who was immediately forced to commit suicide the moment he figured out what the Mariage were seeking.
In Magical Record Lyrical Nanoha Force Marty gets his Head Asploded before he can tell Arnage and Veyron more about his employer.

Deadly Premonition gives this as a reason why Becky Ames gets killed. Said character was there when Anna Graham was killed and her murderer also knows that they have an item that could be a good hint for his identity. Diane Ames gets killed for similar reasons, after the previous character gave them more knowledge.

Naruto:
Baki kills Hayate after he sees him meeting with Kabuto, learning that the Sand and Sound Villages are conspiring to destroy the Leaf Village.
This happened to Kabuto himself too. He and his mother figure Nonou were spies for Root, but Danzo decided they had become a liability and set them up to kill one another. This was the catalyst for Kabuto's Face–Heel Turn.

This is the driving element of the pilot of Graceland. Felix is a low level drug dealer who is caught by the FBI when he tries to trade a truck load of counterfeit jeans for a duffel bag full of cocaine. His Russian bosses are not happy about this since Felix knows too much about their operations and could talk to the feds to avoid a lengthy prison sentence. They kidnap Felix's family so he stays quiet but Felix realizes that they will have him killed in prison and then murder his family so there are no witnesses. He cooperates with the FBI and Mike is sent in undercover as Felix's brother-in-law. The Russians like to invert the trope by having someone commit a murder for them and then they blackmail the person with the threat of turning them in to the police. Mike offers to kill whoever the Russians pick since this will give them enough leverage over Felix to ensure that Felix never talks and they have no need to keep his family hostage. The target turns out to be another witness who knows too much and it quickly becomes clear that the Russians will not keep their side of the bargain and will instead kill everyone who knows about the plan.

House of Cards (US):
One of the most shocking moments of the Season 2 premiere is when Frank Underwood pushes Zoe Barnes in front of a subway train, in order to silence her about their backchannel communications, which he's been using to manipulate events in his favor.
"Chapter 64", the penultimate episode of Season 5, sees two examples of this, one lethal and one not. Frank pushes Secretary Durant down the stairs, hospitalizing her, so that later she can't testify at a Congressional hearing about his dirty dealings. Later, Claire kills Tom Yates via poisoning to stop him from publishing a manuscript detailing everything she and her husband have done to stay in power (including the murders of Zoe and Peter Russo).

Inverted in Diamonds Are Forever concerning the diamond smuggling ring. When one of your own passes you fake diamonds, he knows too much about the circumstances to die. This is demonstrated when Shady Tree rescues James Bond (who had assumed the identity of Peter Franks, a fellow diamond smuggler who Bond had killed) from a retort to question him about where he hid the real diamonds, only for Bond to use leverage against him to the tune of $50,000 ("You bring me the real money, and I'll bring you the real diamonds."), and then Zig Zagged when Albert R. Saxby reminds Wint and Kidd that they "didn't get the real diamonds. So we need Tree, alive." Wint and Kidd remark on how "that's most annoying" because they had already cut Tree down, as revealed when Bond shows up in his dressing room.

Modern Warfare 2: After sending all of the Task Force 141 to both of Makarov's safehouses, General Shepherd betrays them all because he suspected that they knew about his plans to make the U.S. the most powerful country in the world. note Shepherd snitched on one of his own men working undercover with Makarov, who subsequently executed the man and set him up to be found by Russian authorities, while at the same time leaking sufficient evidence to make Russia believe Makarov's terrorist activities were American-sponsored and launch an invasion of the U.S. East Coast in retaliation. With the U.S. in such a crisis, enlistment soared and Shepherd was essentially given a blank check by the Department of Defense.

In Yandere Simulator, if a student witnesses you committing murdernote And isn't of the Heroic (will try to subdue you and will have to die for you to not lose) or Cowardly (will remain quiet out of fear of you) personas, nor of the Spiteful persona if the murder victim is someone they disliked., but you manage to get away with it, they will constantly talk about it to other students, which will constantly dip your reputation. The solution? Leave No Witnesses.

In Winter War, Hisagi kills Iemura for discovering that he is a Fake Defector, even though they were (theoretically) on the same side and Iemura was offering his support, because he didn't believe that Iemura could keep the secret. The guilt eventually drives the killer into Heroic BSoD to the point where his zanpakutou has to take over his body just to keep him alive.

Sent in a message to Professor Eifman just after he figured out the true agenda of Celestial Being's founder, and just before the Thrones attack the base, killing him in the process. Either sent by Ribbons Almack or by Veda itself.
Played with in the case of Kinue Crossroad. She is killed for knowing too much, but the guy who killed her is a violent sociopath, and deliberately gave her the information before killing her for knowing too much, apparently just because doing so amused him.

Attack on Titan:
Pastor Nick is a high-ranking member of the Church of the Wall, and knows many important secrets. As soon as he becomes willing to reveal what he knows to Historia Reiss, members of the 1st Brigade torture and murder him.
Alma, the mother of Histoira Reiss and mistress of a certain nobleman, was murdered to clean up any loose ends.
Marco Bott overheard Reiner and Bertolt discussing their plans, and was so shocked that he confronted them directly about it rather than reporting them. In a panic, Reiner chased him down and got Annie to help by stealing Marco's gear. The three left him to be eaten by a Titan, though they weren't very happy with what they'd done.

The 100:
Prior to the start of the series, Clarke's father was killed to keep him from revealing that the Ark's life support was failing, and that the Council was planning to "cull" a large portion of the population to conserve oxygen. Clarke herself was put in solitary confinement for this same reason.
In the second season, Octavia figures out that Clarke and Lexa knew a missile was going to hit Tondc, but chose to save themselves without warning anyone else to evacuate. Lexa tries to have Octavia killed to keep her silent, but Clarke stops her, insisting that Octavia is loyal to their cause and will keep their secret.

Used several times per season in 24, usually overlapping with You Have Outlived Your Usefulness.
In Season 1, Nina kills Teri because she overheard information that would have compromised her escape from CTU, though there are also other reasons considering both women's history with Jack.
In Season 2, Marie kills Reza just as he is about to clear his own name and find out who moved the funds for Syed Ali.
In Season 3, the reason why the Big Bad forces CTU to execute Ryan Chappelle.
In Season 7, the villains kill Dubaku after he is captured because he has information on them that he is using as blackmail to prevent being subject to You Have Failed Me and You Have Outlived Your Usefulness.

In the Light arc, the first victim of that murderer doesn't match the profile of the subsequent victims. After some investigation, the Shadow concludes that he must have known something about the Light that she didn't want to get out.

Ace Combat
Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere
In a Flashback, its revealed that Rena Hiorse was the test pilot for General Resource’s Night Raven project. However, when Rena was interviewed at the age of nine, she inadvertently revealed its existence to the public, which lead to General Resource to terminate anyone who was involved in the project. This included Yoko Martha Inoue, whose death lead to Abyssal Dision to vow revenge against the world for taking Yoko from him.
In the Omega Ending, this is one possible reason for why Simon Orestes Cohen purged Nemo in the simulation once all possibilities were run through the program, as he couldn’t risk the possibility of Nemo alerting the UPEO, General Resource, Neucom, or even Dision of his treachery. However, Simon then turns right around and releases a copy of Nemo into the real world, with the intent to engineer events so the Inter-Corporate War occurs in reality. As it turns out, he too was close to Yoko, and blamed Dision for her death; the entire purpose of the Inter-Corporate War simulation was to ensure that no matter the outcome, Nemo would kill Dision. For the plan to work, however, Nemo had to function on its own, without knowledge of how the Inter-Corporate War would come to pass, so the copy released by Cohen was a clean one.
Two thirds of the way through Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, the Wardog Squadron discovers that the war between Osea and Yuktobonia was instigated by an organization called the Grey Men, to avenge their homeland of Belka, after the Grey Men try and fail to wipe them out while returning from a mission. As a result, the Grey Men resort to Plan B: Frame Wardog as traitors and get them executed by their own countrymen. While they succeed in getting the Wardog Squadron branded as traitors, they fail to get them eliminated, and the Wardog Squadron goes on to stop the Grey Men from escalating the war any further.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown: In the mission Faceless Soldier, Full Band brags to AWACS Bandog that he’s acquired classified information that he intends to reveal once the mission is over. When the Spare Squadron is ambushed by AI controlled aircraft using spoofed Osean IFFs, Tabloid suggests that they form an element on Trigger, and for Bandog to register anyone not in the formation as an enemy. When they do, Bandog asks for Full Band’s location, and flags him as an enemy, resulting in him getting shot down and killed by Count. When the squadron calls Bandog out on it, Bandog insists that it was an accident.

Subverted slightly in Adventures in Babysitting — one of the kids had taken a Playboy magazine that could get the crime boss put away, and the presumption the criminals made, of course, was that the kids had read it, plus the fact that they'd met at all meant they knew too much. The magazine was returned, and the crime boss' underling resigned, knocking him out along the way.

Allen Schezar's father Leon from The Vision of Escaflowne is believed to have abandoned his family, but this is what actually happened to him. Several years ago, the Zaibach Empire targeted him because he had gathered lots of information on the Draconians and was about to blow their cover. When they managed to find Leon, they took his notes and killed him. His son was so badly damaged by all of this but didn't learn the truth for several years, when he confronted Leon's spirit and tried to call him out on what he believes to have been Parental Abandonment. After learning that Leon never abandoned the family, they eventually make peace.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars:
"Cloak of Darkness": Ventress' orders are to either rescue Gunray, or kill him if that's not possible given how many secrets he knows.
During the "Orders" arc, ARC trooper Fives discovers the existence of an organic chip implanted into each clone trooper's brain at birth, enabling one to command the clones to commit any action without hesitation, including killing the Jedi. When he attempts to present his findings to the Chancellor, he is secretly drugged by the lead scientist responsible for the organic chips to make him appear insane. Furthermore, the Chancellor reveals that he's the one who orchestrated the implantation of the organic chips, and has Fives hunted down and ultimately killed before Fives can reveal the truth to the Jedi.

Max Payne: It turns out that the junkies who killed the title character's wife and baby girl were sent by Nicole Horne after a dossier about Horne's project found its way to the wife's desk and Horne decided to silence her by "any means necessary." Tragically, Max's wife was trying to tell him about this ("a strange memo, something about Vikings"), but he ignored it. In the third game, Da Silva knows this will happen to him if he digs too deep, so he points the much more combat-competent Max in the right direction instead.

The Order of the Stick: Redcloak in #827 can't risk certain facts about a battle getting back to Xykon. Most of his soldiers in that battle were summoned and could be simply dismissed, but there was one goblin who needed to be dead. Luckily for Redcloak, the goblin in question was killed in that same battle, so was able to merely refrain from resurrecting him. And a few strips later he has Tsukiko killed by her own wights after she tells him she plans to blackmail him. Once he tells his real plan is not what she thought it was, she's too much of a liability to be allowed to live.

The Man with One Red Shoe (the American remake of the French The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe) has the scheming deputy head of the CIA trying to frame the actual head, so that he can have his job. The head knows this, and lets slip that someone who can foil this plan very simply will be arriving at the airport. He then sends his aide to meet any random person at the airport, so that the deputy and his men will follow them and try to find out what he knows. The aide picks a rather head-in-the-clouds musician, who's wearing a pair of mismatched shoes because of a practical joke.

RED starts when a commando team tries to assassinate retired CIA agent Frank Moses. He quickly realizes that someone is trying to kill him because of something he knows, but because he doesn't know what it is and they don't know who he might have told, they're targeting people he's been in contact with as well so he's got to find his old friends before they can be attacked as well.

Happens thrice in the first part of Sorcerer Stabber Orphen:
Lai steps on who everyone believes to be Childman but is actually Azalie in Childman's body. She turns him into a Human Popsicle, and he remains as such until the end of the first series.
Shastanasi, one of the Elders of the Towers of Fangs, also realizes that Azalie has taken over Childman's body and tries to blackmail her. Childman!Azalie fights back, and soon Shastanasi is seen as an Empty Shell.
Some time later, Hartia finds the frozen Lai and tries to confront "Childman"... but then he sees Childman!Azalie's shadow in Azalie's form. She almost kills him on the spot and does severely wound him, but he manages to escape to Orphen and Co.'s side and tells them the truth.

As the lead geneticist in the Facility's attempts to clone Wolverine in Innocence Lost, Dr. Sarah Kinney knows everything about the X-23 project, particularly after Rice reveals that additional clones are currently in production, with the plan being to sell them to the highest bidders. After firing her, Rice decides to ensure her silence about the project by arranging to have X-23 kill her by contaminating Sarah with the trigger scent (that, and because he's a tremendous dick). Unfortunately for him, Sarah's final act is to turn X-23 loose against the Facility itself...

In the Vampire Princess Miyu TV series, this partially is what prompts Dark Magical Girl Miyu to get the otaku Secret Keeper to fall to his death. The fact that he showed absolutely no understanding about Miyu's nature and what it means to be the Guardian really didn't help his case.

Warframe: In the backstory, a Dax Super Soldier discovered that Ballas, one of the highest-ranking people in the Orokin Empire, was planning to sell out the entire human race to the Sentients. Ballas decided to silence him, but instead of just killing him, he infested him with a carefully controlled version of the Technocyte Plague, turning him into one of the first warframes, driving him violently insane, and enslaving him to Ballas' will. And then he made the Dax kill his own son.

Schlock Mercenary: A lot of dirty secrets are about, and a lot of people get killed over it. Project Laz-R'-Us was a recurring element for this during the early years, and several characters were killed simply by knowing it existed.
In an early strip, a UNS intelligence officer is killed by his superiors during an intelligence briefing when he unwittingly lets slip that he might have learned details above his security clearance.
The Toughs fall afoul of this in a later arc, when they end up learning about the same thing. Ironically, by the same officer who did the killing in the above strip.

Syme in Nineteen Eighty-Four lauds the principles behind Newspeak to Winston, explaining in great detail how it helps the Party perfect its control over the general populace. Despite being thoroughly loyal to the Party, he is eventually made an "unperson" due to this understanding. A fate Winston himself is able to see coming, predicting that Syme will be "Vaporized" several chapters before it actually happens.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift: This, coupled with Protectorate issues, turns out to be the big motivation behind Captain Hazama's attempt on the life of Makoto Nanaya in Jin's story. Makoto turns out to be big friends with Noel Vermillion and Tsubaki Yayoi, both of whom had big roles to play in Hazama's plan, so getting her as far away from them (like, say, Ikaruga) is high on his priority list. Unfortunately for him, she winds up finding out that Noel Vermillion is a Murakumo unit, an artificially created being with the purpose of using the Eye of the Azure to destroy the Master Unit. As if that wasn't enough, she winds up falling into an alternate timeline where Noel didn't exist and Tsubaki wound up dead, which ironically is fuel Hazama used to facilitate Tsubaki's Face–Heel Turn, and the first thing she does is block an attempt on Jin's life by Hazama. The knowledge of Murakumo Noel is dangerous enough, but the possibility that the events Makoto witnessed could abort or reverse Tsubaki's change in alignment mean that, to him, it's not worth chancing her staying alive.

Towards the end of the Conquest route in Fire Emblem Fates, the Smug Snake Iago figures out that the Avatar is a traitor when his men discover a certain someone who was meant to be killed. After hearing his accusations, the Nohrian royal siblings decide that it would be better to kill Iago and Hans to protect their foster sibling's life rather than face the wrath of an enraged Garon. Iago and Hans really don't help their case by directly attacking the Avatar in front of the Nohrian siblings, too.

In The X-Files, Mulder knows entirely too much right from the start, and then gathers more information along the way. When attempts to get him to come to the dark side fail, the Syndicate try to destroy him instead. Since Mulder is more valuable to them alive than dead, they tend to do terrible things to people he cares about. Arguably the worst was giving Scully an inoperable tumor that spelled a slow and painful death for a season (until a cure is found by Mulder's snooping ways, of course).

In A Brother's Price, the protagonists find the corpse of a man who likely died from blood loss after his tongue was cut off. They conclude that the women who killed his family and kidnapped him wanted to keep him around (men have Gender Rarity Value in the setting), but didn't want him to be able to talk, and were too incompetent to silence him without killing him. Later on, one of Jerin's kidnappers advises her sisters to not talk too much in front of Jerin, as she would like her future husband to have a tongue.

In the episode "Democracy", five people who had evidence of a voting fraud conspiracy "accidentally" die before they can reveal the fraud. Unfortunately for the conspiracy, one of them managed to get the list of their names to Charlie shortly before being killed, who determines that the odds of five random people dying in a given two week period are approximately a bajillion to one. Don orders a second autopsy on the one who gave Charlie the list, which confirms that she was murdered, and the attempt to tie up a few loose ends has now attracted the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In "Disturbed", the episode after the credits opens with a murdered mailman who was last seen alive outside of a home where a woman was killed. He waves at the repairman entering the house. The repairman is a serial killer and he kills both his intended victim in the house and the mailman who could place him there. Nearly an aversion, since the mailman only possibly knew something.
The killer is stated to do this to pretty much anyone who comes even remotely close to being able to identify him. Unfortunately for him, one of his early attempts at this wasn't quite successful, and that witness ends up becoming the key to taking the killer down.

Parodied in an episode of Jackie Chan Adventures, appropriately titled "The Chan Who Knew Too Much". A cabal of wizards repeatedly states that Jackie "knows too much" when he finds out any of the cabal's secrets... their name, their plans for Stonehenge, or even the location of the bathrooms in their secret lair. ("He's privy to our privies!") To make it even better, Jackie really didn't know anything at all about when he first accidentally dropped in on all of them — for all he knew, they could have just been wannabe satanists or something. They pretty much told Jackie everything themselves, e.g showing him that they knew magic by trying to kill him with it. It then gets gloriously lampshaded when Jade claims to know their magic words, but can't cast their spells. The man gloats that she 'knows nothing' and Jackie cries out, "That's what I've been trying to tell you!"

Parodied at the beginning of an episode of At Last the 1948 Show with Marty Feldman as gangster "Baby Face" Lip Salve and Graham Chapman as rival gangster "Diamond" Albert Nose Fetish. Baby Face demands to know when Prussia first acquired the hegemony of the North Germanic Confederation; 1866, says Diamond. Baby Face then asks for the angle of the plane of movement of the two outer and brighter of Uranus' satellites (Oberon and Titania) with the elliptic; 82 degrees, says Diamond. Finally, Baby Face asks for the square root of 7,974; 89.3, says Diamond. Baby Face says he now has to kill Diamond - he knows too much.

In Pages Of Harmony, Twilight ends up kidnapping and killing Spike and Sweetie Belle because she fears they'll learn too much about her plans involving the Elements - the former because he hangs around the library and starts to get suspicious, and the latter because she witnesses Rarity being kidnapped.

Kaguya-sama: Love Is War provides a non-fatal example. After revealing that she knows about Kaguya and Shirogane's Secret Relationship, Kaguya nearly assaults Onodera with a taser to give her Laser-Guided Amnesia (only for her to prove that she can function as a Secret Keeper while remaining completely oblivious to Kaguya's attempted attack).

The first culprit of Spirit of Justice murders Paht Rohl because he knew that the Founder's Orb had been stolen. That would throw suspicion on the culprit, the person who would have the easiest time stealing the thing (a proper suspicion, because the culprit did steal it).

According to the backstory, George Trevor, the architect who helped design the mansion in Resident Evil, didn't realize that Ozwell Spencer (the founder of Umbrella) grew paranoid about him. Because George helped build a mansion that was filled with traps and secret rooms, he knew everything about the place. Ergo, Spencer wanted him dead so that the secrets would never get out. George tried to escape the mansion grounds, only to fall into a pit, which had a gravestone with his name on it, and die due to thirst and starvation.

Exploited in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "In The Pale Moonlight". After the Romulan senator figures out that the data rod Captain Sisko gave him is a fake, he heads home to the Romulan empire when his shuttle suddenly explodes because Garak put a bomb on it. As Garak explains it, the Romulans will find the shuttle and assume that the Dominion murdered the senator to try and keep him from informing the Empire about the Dominion's plans and the irregularities in the data rod are a result of the explosion.

In [PROTOTYPE] this trope ends up being the cause of the whole plot. After the real Alex Mercer was hired to make a virus ten times deadlier, his employers who were under investigation, decided to permanently silence all loose ends. Just as their assassins caught up with him, the real Mercer spitefully unleashed the virus to take the whole world with him just before he was gunned down.

Mobile Suit Gundam Wing:
All five Gundam Pilots were ordered to kill anybody who sees the Gundams, or who discovers their identities. Heero takes it to an extreme, by repeatedly threatening to kill Relena for finding him washed up on a beach in his spacesuit. Duo was a bit more forgiving, by simply using a road flare to obscure Relena's view of Wing Zero and Deathscythe and then warning her that it was in her best interests to look away.
Near the end of the series, Hilde wound up becoming a target of the White Fang, when she infiltrated the Libra base and hacked their systems to gather data on Vayette and Mercuriousnote (the latest and most advanced in their line of Mobile Dolls). Quantz mobilized them and sent them to silence her before she could get the information back to the Gundam pilots - with the attempt being narrowly subverted, thanks to Duo's intervention. While Hilde is seriously injured, she lives through and succesfully gives the info away.

Warehouse 13:
Implied in Claudia's first episode after she breaks into the Warehouse to coerce Artie to help her save her brother (as in, she knows about the Warehouse and now we have to do something about it). They seem like the kind of folks who consider death to be a (albeit viable) last resort, though, and Claudia ends up joining the team.
Something very similar happens in the first episode of Season 3 — the warehouse agents run into ATF agent Steve Jinks on a mission, and their attempts to explain the situation away don't work because he's a Living Lie Detector. Since he's in on the secret and already a federal agent, he gets recruited.

As they leave, one of them comments to the other that they've proved their loyalty, and the other responds by shooting him in the head. He then phones the Joker to say all the henchmen who knew the plan are dead. The Joker replies "Not quite all", and his van blows up.

Two thirds of the way through Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, the Wardog Squadron discovers that the war between Osea and Yuktobonia was instigated by an organization called the Grey Men, to avenge their homeland of Belka, after the Grey Men try and fail to wipe them out while returning from a mission. As a result, the Grey Men resort to Plan B: Frame Wardog as traitors and get them executed by their own countrymen. While they succeed in getting the Wardog Squadron branded as traitors, they fail to get them eliminated, and the Wardog Squadron goes on to stop the Grey Men from escalating the war any further.

Girl Genius:
The entire Wulfenbach Vespiary Squad is targeted by the rest of the Wulfenbach forces after Herr Baron himself is infected by a slaver wasp and is compelled to destroy them. Thankfully, Tarvek and the Jägers salvage enough of the unit and their materials for them to continue their mission under a lower profile.
According to Tarvek, the Master of Paris encourages clubs to look over the code he uses to control the city in order to look for weaknesses that he can fix. Between Gil and Tarvek, they belonged to over twenty such clubs. The problem is if they learned too much about the code, the Master would drop their entire headquarters into a bottomless pit.
In the prose novel Agatha H. and the Siege of Mechanicsburg, some doctors praise the modifications made to a machine, unaware that Lucrezia was the one who did so. She notes to herself that she'd like to tell them she did it so that she could receive even more praise, but then she'd have to kill them to keep the secret of her true capabilities. She tells them anyway.

When Brice kills Susan, and his aide Scott realizes Nina knows about Susan and David (he's trying to cover up the crime by pretending a Russian spy code-named Yuri did it), he sends Those Two Bad Guys after her. Tom, who works for Brice, and who was involved with Susan, realizes this, and goes to the shop Nina works at to warn her to escape so she won't get killed. This seems like a Big Damn Heroes moment, except what he's really doing is trying to keep Scott from finding out he's really The Mole Scott is pretending to look for.

In Ghost Trick, this was the reason that Sith arranged for the deaths of Jowd, Cabanela, Pigeon Man, and Lynne. All of them had some interaction with/knowledge of the Temsik meteor, and he wanted to be the only one to know about its existence. Because those were the same people that Yomiel, the owner of the last shard of the meteor, wanted dead, this worked out fine... until Yomiel realized that he himself fell under this trope, and Sith was preparing accordingly.

Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere
In a Flashback, its revealed that Rena Hiorse was the test pilot for General Resource’s Night Raven project. However, when Rena was interviewed at the age of nine, she inadvertently revealed its existence to the public, which lead to General Resource to terminate anyone who was involved in the project. This included Yoko Martha Inoue, whose death lead to Abyssal Dision to vow revenge against the world for taking Yoko from him.
In the Omega Ending, this is one possible reason for why Simon Orestes Cohen purged Nemo in the simulation once all possibilities were run through the program, as he couldn’t risk the possibility of Nemo alerting the UPEO, General Resource, Neucom, or even Dision of his treachery. However, Simon then turns right around and releases a copy of Nemo into the real world, with the intent to engineer events so the Inter-Corporate War occurs in reality. As it turns out, he too was close to Yoko, and blamed Dision for her death; the entire purpose of the Inter-Corporate War simulation was to ensure that no matter the outcome, Nemo would kill Dision. For the plan to work, however, Nemo had to function on its own, without knowledge of how the Inter-Corporate War would come to pass, so the copy released by Cohen was a clean one.

Dollhouse: Rather than being "terminated" (one way or another), a "handler" who has been exposed for raping his assigned "doll" is offered a task more suited to his evident personality: eliminate a woman who has inadvertently learned too much about the Dollhouse from an FBI agent investigating the organization. Only it's subverted when it's revealed that the target is a doll herself, one with a "killer" sleeper personality, and he's actually being sent to his death as part of a larger scheme.

Dual Destinies:
In case 1, Ted Tonate murders Detective Candice Arme because she sees him trying to steal a bomb to sell on the black market.
The third case has Professor Means murder Professor Courte because she learned he was accepting bribes from the parents of students, in exchange for giving them good grades.
This is the reason the phantom murdered Metis Cykes prior to the events of the game. She had a psychological evaluation that may have helped the police identify him, and he had to prevent that at all costs.

In the prose novel Agatha H. and the Siege of Mechanicsburg, some doctors praise the modifications made to a machine, unaware that Lucrezia was the one who did so. She notes to herself that she'd like to tell them she did it so that she could receive even more praise, but then she'd have to kill them to keep the secret of her true capabilities. She tells them anyway.

In The Spectacular Spider-Man, Punch-Clock Villain Doctor Otto Octavius is entirely correct to fear that someone will discover his involvement in the creation of Supervillains made to antagonize Spider-Man. Indeed, Green Goblin engineers a Freak Lab Accident to silence the doctor for good. The catch? Octavius lives, though he's become much less meek and a lot more megalomaniacal. Unfortunately, the newly-christened Doctor Octopus assumes Spider-Man is the culprit.

Murder in the Alps:
In Deadly Snowstorm, all the five murders the Nazi spy Claudia Perret commits are basically a series of increasingly ill-thought-out efforts to draw attention from herself. Professor Kinsky catches her rummaging through his luggage and threatens to tell this to the police and all the hotel guests, so she stages a heartattack to off him. Ulla Lund discovers on Kinsky's neck the puncture mark left by Claudia's syringe and intends to tell this to Dr. Hartmann, so Claudia stages another heartattack. When Dr. Hartmann intends to show Anna Myers and Walter McCain something, Claudia rushes to shoot him without knowing that what he has discoverednote the smuggled cigarettes stored in the hotel's cellar has nothing to do with the murders. Claudia's employer, Mr. Petersen, grows suspicious of his nurse and keeps demanding straight answers from Claudia until she gets rid of him. And finally, when Giovanni Rossi is believed to be the murderer and tied up, only Walter remains suspicious of Claudia, so she kills him as well.
In The Heir, the murderer grows worried about the protagonist Anna Myers' investigation that's more throrough than that of the local police chief, so they try to kill her by dropping a large rock on her. Vincent Freeman figures out that Osvald Bernstein is the murderer and tries to extort money from him in exchange for his silence. Osvald comes to meet Vincent as requested, but he buys the latter's silence with a knifestab instead of money.

A Song of Ice and Fire:
Bran sees Jaime and Cersei having sex and is then pushed out of a tower for it. During the ensuing coma, he's attacked by an assassin. We later learn that the assassination attempt is a subversion — he was attacked because Joffrey wanted his father's approval.
Jon Arryn learned about Jaime and Cersei as well, and promptly died under suspicious circumstances. Interestingly, this is also a subversion — he was killed because Petyr felt like sowing some discord.
Petyr also has a habit of doing this, murdering Ser Dontos, whom he used as a catspaw in order to smuggle Sansa Stark out of Kings Landing, and his accomplice in Jon Arryn's murder, Lysa Tully.

One Piece:
The scholars of Ohara got too deep in researching the Void Century (which is hinted at being a huge threat toward the World Government), and consequently the island, along with its inhabitants, was bombarded into oblivion by the World Government. It's also the real reason why Nico Robin has a bounty; she's the Sole Survivor of Ohara, her mother Olvia was one of the Scholars and she inherited her knowledge.
Played for comedy in Luffy/Ace's flashback. Luffy discovers where Ace and Sabo keep their treasure, and they state that they're going to kill him to keep him from telling, only to realize that neither of them have killed anyone before.

The climax of Dinner at Deviant's Palace is a No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Dine situation with a bunch of the villain's underlings joining the villain and the hero for the eponymous dinner. When the hero is shown in, he addresses the villain by his true name, and the villain notes that several of the dinner guests have now been let into a secret they can't be allowed to leave with and will have to be killed when the dinner is over. As the conversation continues through the hero's other discoveries about the cult, the villain continues to casually note whenever another revelation has doomed a few more guests, until they get to the real reason the villain's cult bans music, at which point the villain announces that the list now includes every single person in the room.

Code Geass R2:
In episode 14, Rolo claims to have killed Shirley Fenette for remembering the truth about Lelouch as Zero This isn't completely true (Shirley wanted to help reunite Lelouch with his real sibling, Nunally, eliciting Rolo's jealousy), but it's not a total lie either ( she knew that Nunally was Lelouch's sister when she wasn't supposed to.)
In the first episodes of both the first and second season, Lelouch is about to be shot for having seen C.C., although the second time it was intentional.
In Suzaku of the Counterattack, this is why Schneizel had Marianne killed.
In an early episode of R2, Rolo murders a Britannian soldier who walks in on a conversation he's having with Viletta for hearing things he shouldn't. And all the guy heard was the word "Geass", which he couldn't possibly have even understood.

In NieR: Automata, the Android forces employ Scanner-model units as intelligence agents and combat hackers in their war against the alien-built Machines. Unfortunately, Scanners have a natural curiosity, and their abilities let them uncover sensitive information that YoRHa Command would rather keep secret. Enter the Executioner-model androids, who are designed to destroy rogue Android units, and are routinely paired with Scanners to serve as minders in case they ever learn too much. Protagonist 2B is revealed late in the game to actually be designated 2E, and has been ordered to execute Deuteragonist 9S several times before the game's events, which torments her since she's fallen In Love with the Mark. And even though 9S' memory gets reset to a data back-up each time he "dies," he's figured out that his partner has been killing him, yet keeps developing feelings for her.

Except for Sasha, who it's revealed went inside willingly to hide, and Kate, who's an operative sent in with a mission. It's also why Kate's superiors summarily execute her when she returns with her mission accomplished.

In Serenity, the Operative is sent after River because she picked up the secret of Miranda, which has been buried for twelve years, from the heads of top members of the Alliance's Parliament who came to the Academy to see her. The nature of the secret in question means that Parliament wants more than anything to keep it buried, even if it means River must die.
This is a perfect example of the variant, since River was totally crazy, so she couldn't have communicated what she knew to anybody who could do anything about it. The Operative coming after her and the crew compelled them to find out the truth.

The Secret World:
This is a regular occurrence: when you finally discover The Secret World, you're either in or you're dead. Between the traditional demon-purging Templars, the control freak Illuminati, the mayhem-inducing Dragon, and the mercenary (and non-playable) Phoenicians, you're usually dead by dawn if you run. And these are the GOOD GUYS. Most of the bad guys just leave victims and corpses for you to find. The netural factions are too bogged in their own problems to deal with any of this. The recruiter for the Templars outright says that now that your player character knows that the supernatural is real through their own superpowers, they're a target for anima harvesters. You either get syndicated or you go on the hunt-or-be-hunted for the rest of your life. Considering that there are no levels in the game and respawn points require a sponsor, that would mean you're finished if you choose the latter.
In one mission, two nobodies are chased halfway around the world and declared public-enemy heretics because they have tiny, tiny snippets of information against a super-cult. One of them is suicidal (and has been since she was 14), the other doesn't even know the password to the tablet PC he stole, or what is on it. It's YOU. No seriously. You get to see some of your character's extra stats. For example, greatest fear? Your handler.

The kicker: While dying, Enya made clear that she would never have thought to betray Dio, though Joseph might have been able to read her mind with Hermit Purple. Steely Dan just laughs at her.
In Part 4 (Diamond is Unbreakable), Shigechi buys a limited-edition sandwich, but picks up the wrong bag after setting it next to someone else's. The bag he took belonged to Kira, who had left his latest victim's hand in it. When Shigechi opens the bag and sees what's in it, Kira murders him to hide his crimes.
Part of Diavolo's plan in Part 5 (Golden Winds) is to murder anyone and everyone who knows anything about him, or has even seen his face. This extends to his own daughter, the Action Girl Trish. Despite the fact that Trish doesn't know anything about her father, having never met him. He's just paranoid that she might somehow know something about him. Fortunately, Buccellati is able to rescue her before he can do the deed.
In Part 6 (Stone Ocean), Whitesnake kills Jongalli as insurance against Jotaro and Jolyne learning who's really behind the latter's imprisonment — Enrico Pucci, the prison chaplain.

In Detective School Q, some people are attacked and either killed/nearly killed because of this trope:
Maya Asabuki from the Boarding School case had a videotape that could potentially ruin the plans of the killer, and when the culprit found out, they attacked her to take the tape and silence her. She died in the manga, but (barely) survived in the anime.
In a case involving the murder of aspirant actresses during auditions, Sakurako Yukihira was caught searching for evidence by Meiousei agents and put in a cruel Death Trap. Kyuu barely managed to find her before she died.

Back to the Future Part II: Old Biff gets the idea to back to the past to give his 1955 self the Gray's Sports Almanac, so he'll be rich in the future. He also tells him that either a kid (Marty) or an old man (Doc) will come around asking about that book, and to kill them if they do so. Indeed, Present Biff-A tries to shoot Marty down in his own office after he finishes his exposition, and Marty barely escapes with his life.

Two Dark Angels in If the Emperor Had a Text-to-Speech Device are messily killed after their leaders blab out the existence of Fallen within their earshot. And then one of said leaders reminds the others those two were inducted into the Inner Circle last week and thus were qualified to know all about the Fallen without killing them. It's just that the others are trigger-happy paranoiacs.

In a Robot Chicken skit, while the Smurfs are remembering other smurfs that died on Memorial Day, Handy Smurf notices that most of them were related to a once popular trend that soon became outdated. When Papa Smurf is asked that if the victims all die of natural causes (as in not being assassinated by a sniper), he decides to have Gargamel's cat eliminate Handy for knowing too much. That is until Handy managed to kill the cat and get revenge on Papa Smurf.

Vampire Cheerleaders: In vol.1, Leonard becomes suspicious of Lori and her cheerleading squad and spends weeks secretly observing them. Once he had sufficient evidence, he confronted them and threatened to expose them as vampires. Lori's immediate response was to try to kill him, but he'd taken the precaution of eating plenty of garlic and drinking Listerine, which made his blood toxic to her. So she resorted to the next best thing: buy his silence by having the cheerleading squad screw him.

When the plan blows up in his face, he and his partner decide that everyone involved Knows Too Much and must die so the Mafia never finds out who was really responsible. Ironically, the only survivor of the crew actually does not know anything and was about to leave town.

Doctor Who:
"An Unearthly Child": This was the Doctor's justification for kidnapping Barbara and Ian. Couldn't have them revealing the existence of advanced aliens, after all.
"The Gunfighters": Johnny Ringo is in Tombstone looking for fellow Magnificent Bastard Doc Holliday, and the barkeep recognizes him, and threatens to go to the Earps.
"Boom Town": Blon Fel-Fotch Passameer-Day Slitheen, an evil alien disguised as the human Margaret Blaine, has been killing anyone who finds out that the nuclear power plant she, as Lord Mayor of Cardiff, is supporting is designed to deliberately melt down, as part of her plan to escape the Earth. She does spare one reporter who reminded her of her family, though.
"The Woman Who Fell to Earth": After the Doctor, Ryan, Yaz, Graham and Grace encounter an electrical entity called a "data coil" on a train, they find they've been implanted with "DNA bombs" designed to kill them by scrambling their DNA. It's later revealed that the coil belongs to the antagonist of the episode, an alien warrior who's undertaking a ritual hunt in order to be named the leader of his species. However, the hunt is supposed to be a No-Gear Level, and he's using the coil to cheat, so he has good motive to attempt to kill anyone who finds out about the data coil.
"Arachnids in the UK": In a downplayed example, Najia Khan is fired from her job at a luxury hotel that's due to open soon after accidentally walking in on a sensitive conversation between the wealthy owner and his most trusted staff.
"The Witchfinders": Old Mother Twiston, the woman the Doctor and company see being drowned in a witch trial held by landowner Becka Savage. Becka is actually her granddaughter, and killed her because Twiston, as the local healer, was the one Becka went to for help when she got possessed by "Satan" (a hostile alien lifeform), and she couldn't bring herself to amputate Becka's leg to get rid of it. Trying to save her own skin, Becka kills her by drowning so no one will know what she's trying to hide.

Takes place twice in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones: Some characters know well what the Hell is going on in the Empire of Grado (the Cleric Natasha whose mentor, a well-respected high priest, was killed for discovering that the Emperor was dead and revived as an Artificial Human and the Shaman Knoll, Lyon's second-hand in the project to revive said Emperor). The Empire frames both of them as traitors; Natasha has to flee from her homeland and Knoll is imprisoned and slated for execution... but in-game, both survive and join Eirika's (in Natasha's case) or Ephraim's (in Knoll's) troupes.

Blake's 7
In the pilot episode, a Double Agent betrays a rebel meeting to Federation soldiers who massacre them. Blake is the Sole Survivor but efforts to wipe his memory of the massacre prove unreliable. The agent insists that Blake be deposed of as he could expose his role. As Blake was once a popular Rebel Leader they decide to discredit rather than kill him, so Blake is framed as a child molester and deported to a penal planet. His legal defense team uncover proof that he's been framed, only to be murdered by the Federation agent.
In "Orbit", a fugitive Mad Scientist makes An Offer You Can't Refuse to the rebels. The offer can't be refused because; "Like you, I have a price on my head. So, having revealed my little sanctuary, I cannot allow you and your colleagues to leave. Not at any rate until we've reached an agreement."
Punned in "Moloch". Del Tarrant has his brain scanned (and all his memories and knowledge copied) by the eponymous Master Computer. Tarrant then quips that Moloch has to be destroyed because; "He knows too much about me."

Person of Interest: Northern Lights, the organization in charge of the Machine, has a habit of killing anyone who finds out even the smallest details about it. When Sameen Shaw, one of their own operatives who is sent on extremely important missions by the Machine, asks one too many questions, her boss orders her and her partner killed. Shaw hunts him down and lampshades that this was completely unnecessary. They had been following orders when they thought people were being tortured for information; the truth is actually less horrifying (a benevolent AI studies surveillance and tracks terrorists before they can strike). She kills her boss in revenge, but pointedly leaves everyone else alive because she knows the work is important.

In Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, Premier Cherdenko tells the Commander this to his face right before killing him because he has outlived his usefulness. In this case, the "too much" is that the Soviet Union was on the brink of losing before Cherdenko used Time Travel to Make Wrong What Once Went Right and, in the process, made himself Premier. In earlier missions, he already killed two of the other people who knew, his right-hand man General Krukov and the time machine's inventor, Dr. Zelinsky.

A continuing duty of SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organisation) is to suppress information on UFO incidents to prevent worldwide panic over the knowledge that beings from another world are harvesting human organs. Their methods include intimidation (ranging from beatings to government pressure on the employers of the witness), conscription into SHADO, amnesia pills, and even murder.

In the Hitman series, this is pretty much the only reason 47 will kill an innocent (in canon), as his existence is already very volatile and he cannot afford letting anyone (other than a select few) know about him.

Safehold:
This is a constant danger for the protagonists, as their knowledge of Safehold's status as a Lost Colony in Medieval Stasis would be blasphemous to the average person. They have to be insanely cautious about who they let in on the knowledge. Those people are also told, if they don't work it out themselves, that if there's any danger of betrayal they'll be forced to take measures.
A specific instance occurs in the third book, By Heresies Distressed when an attempted assassination is foiled by the arrival of Merlin, who is supposed to be hundreds of miles away in a whole other country. Merlin then proceeds to kill every enemy there to prevent anyone from talking about his arrival.
In later books, the protagonists start using Merlin's cave complex deep in the mountains to house such individuals as a compromise. Those still deciding where they stand, or who can not bring themselves to become allies of the protagonists, can be kept there in isolation and physical safety, unable to be a risk to the Inner Circle, and allowing the Inner Circle to avoid being any more ruthless than absolutely necessary. They even offer their "prisoners of state" the option of cryo-sleep so they can awake after the conflict has ended if they so wish.

Examples from Superman stories:
Superman Exile: Morgan Edge has Intergang put out a hit on Clark Kent after information about the group gets out before he left. They end up murdering some poor schmoe breaking in the same time the hitmen did and it's Matrix's appearance as Clark does everyone calm down. At least until Edge's boss, Darkseid, takes matters into his own hands.
In Who is Superwoman?, the titular villain murders Reactron's ex-girlfriend so that she can't tell anybody Superwoman and Reactron are working together.
Later in "The Hunt for Reactron", Reactron murders a whole Metropolis Science Squad when they discover it was Sam Lane who blew the water reservoir up and Supergirl, Nightwing and Flamebird are being framed.
In The Unknown Supergirl, Lesla-Lar plans to help Lex Luthor kill Superman and then "accidentally" kill Lex while capturing him so he can't tell that the "hero" who avenged Superman was in fact Luthor's ally.

In Updraft, this is why the Singers executed Nat's father; he knew that Singers possessed knowledge of how to safely navigate at night, which would be very useful for non-Singer fliers. Even if the Singers had been prepared to share that particular technique, people would wonder what else the Singers were hiding... and would now be better able to discover just that, since night would no longer cover Singer activities which people would get really angry about.

The Mote in God's Eye. After the three midshipmen crash land on Mote Prime, they wander around for a while and make a number of discoveries. The Motie decision makers decide to kill them to keep them from telling the other humans what they've found out. And it plays out the other way, too. The humans are about to be captured, but they decide that they know too much about human technology to allow themselves to be taken prisoner — so they kill themselves.

Flashpoint: The episode "Jumping At Shadows" has three hitmen trying to track down and kill a little girl who saw them murder her best friend's family* they tried to kill her as soon as they realized she was there and had seen them, but she got lucky and managed to get away before they could, so now they're hunting her to finish the job. The crime the girl witnessed was also a case of this; the family was killed because the father, an accountant, uncovered evidence of a crime in the course of his job and was planning to testify.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
Angelus is very thorough in disposing of everyone who knows how to restore his soul. Jenny Calendar is killed and her computer (monitor) is destroyed after she translates the spell.
In "Graduation Day Part 1", Faith murders a Volcanologist in his office, seemingly at random. We later learn that the doctor excavated the fossilized remains of an Old One, which puts Buffy on the trail of the Mayor's weakness.
The First makes Andrew something of a priority that needs a quick killing.

This happens a lot in the Ace Attorney series.
In the first game, Mia was murdered because she had pieced together Redd White's blackmailing schemes.
Justice for All:
The first case reveals that Dustin Prince was murdered because the killer thought he learned about his dark secrets, and freaked out at the thought that a cop might be after him. Tragically, Prince didn't know anything. He and Maggie just happened to be on a date when they found the guy's cell phone and, had the murder not happened, they would have just handed the thing over and gone on their way.
In case 4, there's an interesting variation at play. Matt wants to protect himself from being potentially implicated by the assassin he hired, who would have been the only remaining person to know about his involvement in the crime, so he kept blackmail material to get that assassin arrested if need be. This proves to be his undoing, as the assassin is so insulted at Matt's lack of trust in him, that he drops their contract.
In Trials and Tribulations, this is a favorite reason of Dahlia Hawthorne's, for committing murder. She kills Doug Swallow because he figured out that she stole poison from the pharmaceutical labs and was trying to tell Phoenix, and it was also revealed that she'd been on her way to poison Phoenix because he unwittingly had the only piece of evidence that could implicate her in another crime. Earlier, she arranged for the death of her half-sister to prevent said sister from confessing to a crime they committed, and also talks her boyfriend into a suicide pact so he'd kill himself before Mia Fey could get him to implicate Dahlia. Finally, she poisoned Diego Armando when he got too close to proving her guilt over the death of her half-sister.
In Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, Buddy Faith, Akbey Hicks, Deid Mann, and Cece Yew are all murdered for knowing too much about the smuggling ring and trying to reveal it to the authorities. To elaborate:
Buddy Faith stumbles upon Jacques Portsman trying to retrieve files that Ernest Amano, a member of the smuggling ring, can use against Quercus Alba, the mastermind.
Akbey Hicks finds evidence of smuggled goods in the cargo hold. Cammy Meele, a stewardess and the smuggler, quickly kills him to prevent him from bringing the information back to Interpol and blowing her cover.
Mack Rell and Manny Coachen murdered Deid Mann and Cece Yew, respectively, to keep them from testifying to the authorities. The former case is the one that is being tried during Case 4 of Investigations, ultimately leading up to Rell and Byrne Faraday's murders, while the latter is mentioned during that case.
Dual Destinies:
In case 1, Ted Tonate murders Detective Candice Arme because she sees him trying to steal a bomb to sell on the black market.
The third case has Professor Means murder Professor Courte because she learned he was accepting bribes from the parents of students, in exchange for giving them good grades.
This is the reason the phantom murdered Metis Cykes prior to the events of the game. She had a psychological evaluation that may have helped the police identify him, and he had to prevent that at all costs.
The first culprit of Spirit of Justice murders Paht Rohl because he knew that the Founder's Orb had been stolen. That would throw suspicion on the culprit, the person who would have the easiest time stealing the thing (a proper suspicion, because the culprit did steal it).

River Tam from Firefly. We don't find out what it is that she knows until The Movie Serenity (see Film), but we know her handlers paraded her in front of many top-level politics and military leaders... without realizing that she is a mind reader, so the government definitely considers it too much. So much so that two government agents killed an entire building full of people for the crime of having heard her speak gibberish while she was under arrest.

The Unabridged Memoirs of Darth Plagueis the Wise:
Unlike Palpatine in canon, Plagueis decides that leaving the Trade Federation leadership alive after the blockade of Naboo, when they might reveal their connection to the Sith, is too risky. So he arranges to have Nute Gunray and Rune Haako assassinated as they're brought in to stand trial (Haako survives, though he does end up in a coma for years).
After Plagueis employs Zam Wesell's shapeshifting abilities in order to frame Dooku as Darth Sidious, he decides she's too dangerous a loose end and orders her to be eliminated.

Nicodemus inverts this in a discussion with Mrs. Frisby in The Secret Of Nimh; instead of using it as an excuse to die, he utilizes this fact as a reason to survive by leaving their colony. "My child, we can no longer live as rats... we know too much." In this case, the rats have become so intelligent that they've developed morals against stealing from the local farmer to survive, and must form their own civilization away from humans.

Rare (anti?)heroic example in Merlin in the series 4 finale. Merlin knows that Agravaine cannot be allowed to reveal to Morgana that he's Emrys, and so kills him off.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown: In the mission Faceless Soldier, Full Band brags to AWACS Bandog that he’s acquired classified information that he intends to reveal once the mission is over. When the Spare Squadron is ambushed by AI controlled aircraft using spoofed Osean IFFs, Tabloid suggests that they form an element on Trigger, and for Bandog to register anyone not in the formation as an enemy. When they do, Bandog asks for Full Band’s location, and flags him as an enemy, resulting in him getting shot down and killed by Count. When the squadron calls Bandog out on it, Bandog insists that it was an accident.

Fullmetal Alchemist:
Hughes learns about the Ancient Conspiracy, or at least a little more than the others know. We all know what happened to him...
It's not until quite a bit later in the story that the audience is shown exactly what he had uncovered. At first it seemed that he'd discovered little more than that there was an Ancient Conspiracy, and his knowledge shouldn't really have been a threat to them yet. But in fact, he'd also realized that all of Amestris was a giant transmutation circle, a fact that was the linchpin of the entire conspiracy. No wonder the guy got offed.
In Brotherhood, Isaac McDougall found out exactly the same thing Hughes did. He also gets offed for his efforts by Wrath/Bradley himself.
The two brothers that Ed fights at Laboratory 5 are killed before they can tell him what they know about the Philosopher's Stone.
In the the 2003 anime, this is part of the reason why King Bradley kills Marta.

In Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, Buddy Faith, Akbey Hicks, Deid Mann, and Cece Yew are all murdered for knowing too much about the smuggling ring and trying to reveal it to the authorities. To elaborate:
Buddy Faith stumbles upon Jacques Portsman trying to retrieve files that Ernest Amano, a member of the smuggling ring, can use against Quercus Alba, the mastermind.
Akbey Hicks finds evidence of smuggled goods in the cargo hold. Cammy Meele, a stewardess and the smuggler, quickly kills him to prevent him from bringing the information back to Interpol and blowing her cover.
Mack Rell and Manny Coachen murdered Deid Mann and Cece Yew, respectively, to keep them from testifying to the authorities. The former case is the one that is being tried during Case 4 of Investigations, ultimately leading up to Rell and Byrne Faraday's murders, while the latter is mentioned during that case.

The Shadow Line:
This is why Jonah Gabriel and his partner were shot before the events of the series, in that they came too close to discovering the true extent of police involvement in Counterpoint.
Ross McGovern is killed for investigating the above incident too closely, because his investigations could have led to what Gabriel and Delaney discovered.
Even invoked in episode 6, when Glickman tells Gabriel to confront Commander Penney with the news that he knows about Counterpoint. They're counting on Penney then sending Gatehouse after Gabriel, because they want to lure Gatehouse into a trap.

Cold Case
Part of the reason why the teacher in "True Calling" was murdered was because she had proof that another teacher was using drugs and forcing a student to bring them to him. When she called him out on it, he simply snapped and chased her to the streets before finally killing her.
The victim in "Blood On The Tracks", who wanted to confess to the cops about a crime he and several of his friends had been involved in that left another friend dead. With only one other person in the group agreeing with him, two of the others conspired to kill them both in order to ensure their silence.
This trope is the very reason the victim in "That Woman" was killed, when she accidentally learned the secrets of an Alpha Bitch, an Armored Closet Gay, and an accidental couple, even though she would have kept them anyway.
