Profile

Death was not the oldest of the Gods. That was Pain. (NA: Set Piece)

Early in life, during the youth of his first incarnation, the Doctor had committed murder. He made a deal with Death, so that rather than having Death make him her Champion, Death would, instead, make another Time Lord, later known as the Master, her Champion. (BFA: Master)

The Doctor met Death for the first time on the Moon, when she was summoned by the Timewyrm as a robed skeleton. (NA: Timewyrm: Revelation)

The Doctor made another deal with Death to save Ace (presumably from the Hoothi) and offered himself in her place. (NA: Love and War) Death later took the life of Doctor John Smith. (NA: Human Nature)

The Doctor knew the rituals involved in journeying to speak with Death, Sabbath had also witnessed Death's abode. (EDA: Camera Obscura)

Death, or the embodiment thereof, was a common theme in Klingon culture. So much so, that "he" could be considered a character. Martok, son of Urthog references Death as a person or other entity. (DS9 novel: The Left Hand of Destiny)

Dofus Wiki

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From Dofus

True death is a complicated process in the world of Dofus, for the adventurers have greater powers than regular mortals. Three levels of protection guard them from the spirit world.

Tier 1: Hit points

A character remains fighting in battle as long he has HP left. Epic levels, high vitality and powerful equipment can make a character victorious where a lesser fighter would be wiped out.

When a character's HP reaches 0, he falls and is removed from combat.

Tier 2: Companions

Even when a character is no longer able to fight, he still has a chance. As long as the rest of his side of the battle triumphs, he can recover. All it takes is a single friend standing when the enemy is defeated to guarantee safety.

If all friendly characters fall, the battle is lost.

Tier 3: Energy

Note: This applies only to hostile combat. In non-hostile combat there is no risk of death, so the characters will not expend energy to recall.

When the battle is irreversibly lost, one line of defense remains. A character with sufficient energy will expend part of it to teleport back to the last saved zaap, or the statue of his deity in Astrub if no save has been recorded.

The energy consumed is 10 per character level, 10 per alignment level, and 100 per alignment rank. Neutral characters count as alignment level 0, alignment rank 1. Being defeated when fighting a Collector costs an additional 3000 points.

When your energy points reach 0, you become a tombstone.

Note: Characters losing an aggression against a neutral character on neutral territory (i.e. knight present) are not killed. Instead, they are sent to jail to atone for their crimes.

Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From GuildWiki

Death occurs whenever a character's health drops to zero. The character then becomes a corpse and the player can no longer control him or her. The player can still use chat features, map travel, and camera control. Your screen turns grey when you die, and returns to normal coloration after you are resurrected. However, your screen can glitch, where you are alive but your screen is grey. Additionally, a player whose character is dead can lock the camera to another party member's point of view by clicking on him or simply clicking on that party member's name on the Party List. In PvE, drops are still allocated to dead players if they are within range.

Several skills allow a player to resurrect a party member. In PvE, transition over an area boundary and cinematics resurrect and teleport the whole party. In PvP, a victory will resurrect the winning party.

In PvE, in areas with resurrection shrines, the whole party will be resurrected on a wipe (after a short delay). In PvP if resurrection shrines are present, any dead party members will automatically resurrect at a certain interval of time (often one minute). If the resurrection shrine has a priest, then he must be alive for the party to be resurrected. If an area does not have a resurrection shrine, the party must return to the most recently visited outpost if all party members die. Nearly all PvE missions, and several PvP arenas, lack resurrection shrines.

Death results in a 15% death penalty for the player, except in the following situations:

Avoiding death can earn you the Survivor title.

Lostpedia

From Lostpedia

The "death" Tarot card seen in "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead".

"It's sort of understood on Lost that that's what you sign up for. There's going to be constant character turnover, because the stakes on the Island are life-or-death."

Damon Lindelof, (Lost: On Location (Season 2))

Life and death is a commonly recurring issue on Lost, and according to Damon Lindelof, are two major themes on the Island. While naturally character death is a feature to a good narrative and adds to suspense, life has often been shown to juxtapose with death, creating an intricate balance.

Contents

Redemption and Death

Main article: Redemption

Many deaths (especially those of main characters) have come soon after the characters overcome their issues on the island. While this could be seen as a way of progressing the story, it has also been seen by others as support for theories, such as that the Island is purgatory.

Dying with eyes open is a common occurrence with many of the characters. Characters who have died with their eyes open are Locke, Matthew Abaddon, Daniel Faraday, Keamy, Minkowski, Boone, Nikki, Naomi, Ana Lucia, Libby, Jae Lee and Charlotte. In some cultures, dying with eyes open is interpreted as dying in a state of unrest or mission in life unfulfilled.

Boone

Boone was also an example of one who died soon after his redemption. After being tied up by Locke while excavating the Hatch, Boone experienced a hallucination as the result of a paste being rubbed on his head. In his hallucination, he is forced to confront his major issue: love for his stepsister, Shannon. In his hallucination, he finds her dead, and as he later confesses to Locke, he felt "relieved." This eased his jealousy for Sayid, as well as freeing himself from his love for Shannon. However, soon after his redemption, Boone climbed into a Beechcraft plane, but the plane fell from a cliff with him inside, killing him. ("Hearts and Minds")  ("Deus Ex Machina")  ("Do No Harm")

Shannon

Sayid believes in Shannon, resulting in Walt appearing to him too.

Shannon's issues on the Island seem to centre on the fact that no-one ever believed in her. In the episode "Abandoned", flashbacks show how Shannon tried to convince her step-mother to give her the money to pursue her opportunity with a dance company, pleading that she "just need to get to New York. I need just something — something to get started. I'll pay you back." However, her step-mother refused to believe her, retorting "this week it's an internship — last year it was what — interior design? You'll never pay me back." Later, Boone offered Shannon all the money she needed, but she questioned his motives behind the loan, asking:

SHANNON: Do you believe I can, or don't you, Boone?

Boone pauses

SHANNON: Okay, you know what, I really want you to just take your money — go work for your mother — I don't want it...

On the Island, Shannon saw Walt repeatedly, despite him being kidnapped by the Others. However, no-one would believe her, and even Sayid doubted the claim. Out in the jungle, Shannon eventually confronted Sayid, showing the true root of her complex:

SHANNON: Why don't you believe me? [Sayid doesn't answer] I need you to believe in me!

SAYID: I do believe in you.

SHANNON: You don't! No one does. They think that I'm some kind of joke. They think I'm worthless.

SAYID: Shannon, you are not worthless.

After Sayid truly believes in Shannon, Walt reappears, and this time Sayid can also see him. With this resolution to Shannon's problems, she proceeds to chase after Walt, and in the confusion of surrounding whispers, is shot by Ana Lucia. ("Abandoned")

Ana Lucia

Before dying, Ana Lucia admits to Michael that she "can't do this anymore."

Almost from the moment she arrived on the Island, it was apparent that Ana Lucia was an incredibly troubled young woman. She had suffered a miscarriage, and taken vengeance by murdering the man who had shot her, which caused the loss. After travelling to Australia with Christian Shephard, Ana resolved that she would face what she did and return to America, phoning her mother from the airport and telling her that she would be on Flight 815. ("Collision")  ("Two for the Road")

Of course, Ana never made it to Los Angeles, and on the Island it became evident that her issues had not been overcome. Ana Lucia killed an unnamed Other in addition to Goodwin, and her deteriorating stability in response to the dangers on the Island led to her accidentally shooting and killing Shannon. ("...And Found") Later, Ana planned to kill "Henry Gale", but at the final moment decided not to. She tells Michael, "I couldn't do it. I couldn't even kill him. I looked at him and he — I can't do this anymore." It is at this final moment, where Ana for a second time openly admits to everything she has done and wants to change and be redeemed, that Michael shoots her dead. ("Two for the Road")

Eko

Eko's redemption differs from other characters because it wasn't overcoming his flaws which led to him being redeemed, but rather his refusal to apologise for them because they were done with the greater good at heart. In "The 23rd Psalm" flashbacks showcased Eko making great sacrifices for his brother, Yemi, when he killed a man to prevent his brother from having do it, thus starting his life as a warlord. Eko's sacrifices to save his brother were again featured in the flashbacks in "The Cost of Living" in which he faced a punishment after stealing food for his brother, and accepted the punishment. After Yemi's subsequent death, Eko tried to redeem himself for his involvement in his brother's demise by becoming a holy man, although his attempts were in vain. ("The 23rd Psalm")  ("The Cost of Living")

Eko's redemptive efforts continued during his time on the Island but it was only after The Monster, who had been posing as his brother, told him to repent for his sins but Eko refuses, saying that he had not sinned but did what he needed to survive and protect those close to him. The Monster then preceded to kill a now redeemed Mr Eko. ("The Cost of Living")

Michael

Having helped the Oceanic Six escape, Michael dies.

Redemption played a big part in Michael's return to the Island. After killing Ana Lucia and Libby, Michael left the Island but became increasingly guilt-ridden. As seen in the episode "Meet Kevin Johnson", he became haunted by Libby and eerily saw her twice during his attempts to kill himself and, later, to infiltrate the Kahana as a spy for Benjamin Linus. When Michael was discovered on the freighter by Sayid and Desmond he revealed that he accepted Ben's offer to return to the Island in order to redeem himself for the murders. ("Meet Kevin Johnson")  ("There's No Place Like Home, Part 1")

SUN: And now you're working for Ben?

MICHAEL: I do not work for Ben. I'm trying to make up for what I did. I'm trying to help you out here.

When a bomb was discovered onboard the Kahana, Michael worked with Desmond and Jin to defuse it. With time running out, Michael told Jin to rejoin his wife and unborn child and agreed to man the bomb alone. In doing so, Michael ensured the escape of the Oceanic Six, Desmond and Frank Lapidus from the Island and in doing so redeemed himself before the Kahana exploded, killing him. ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")

Ironically, the people most arguably affected by the deaths of Ana Lucia and Libby; Sawyer, Hurley and Jack, never saw Michael on the freighter and remain unaware of the role he played in security the escape of the two latter survivors.

Charlotte

Charlotte, having divulged the truth, dies.

During her time on the Kahana and later on the Island, Charlotte maintained her real reason for joining the science team a secret, even from those she was close to, like Daniel Faraday. Charlotte was raised on the Island but forced to leave prior to the Incident and she then spent her life trying to find the Island to prove that it existed. After her subsequent return to the Island, Charlotte maintained her often cold demeanour until Daniel urged her to leave the Island and return to the boat in the face of the Secondary Protocol. For the first time, Charlotte divulged that she was "still looking for the place she was born" and refused to leave. ("This Place Is Death")  ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")

After the Island's move Charlotte started to suffer the effects of the time flashes. Before her death, Charlotte started to reveal more and more about herself, such as her ability to speak Korean (which suprised her fellow crewmen Daniel and Miles). Most prominently, however, when her condition worsened severly she emotionally revealed the truth about her history to Daniel. Having learned to not be so secretive and to let those who she was close to in, Charlotte subsequently died. ("This Place Is Death")

Suicide

Suicide has been a theme on Lost. Many characters have attempted suicide, but the success of these attempts has varied from person-to-person. The cause of suicide is generally depression, but in the case of some, to simply escape, or even because of a mental illness.

Pre-Crash

In 1977, Sawyer's mother was swindled by Anthony Cooper. Enraged, his father came home and shot Sawyer's mother and then himself. ("Outlaws")

In the Swan, Kelvin told Desmond about Radzinsky, Kelvin's former partner who was responsible for many things in the hatch. Kelvin eventually revealed that Radzinsky had committed suicide, pointing out a bloodstain on the ceiling. ("Live Together, Die Alone")

Jae's body on Jin's car. ("The Glass Ballerina")

Ordered by Mr. Paik to kill Jae Lee (whom Paik had seen having an affair with Sun), Jin went to Jae's hotel room and beat him profusely but, instead of killing him, offered Jae a chance to leave the country and never come back. As Jin returned to his car, Jae leapt from his window and fell onto the car, clutching a strand of pearls he had offered to Sun. ("The Glass Ballerina")

Another suicide occurred off the island, as Hurley and Ken Halperin were discussing Hurley's finances. Through the window behind Ken, Hurley saw an unknown man falling to his death. ("Numbers")

Essam holds Sayid at gunpoint before killing himself ("The Greater Good")

Upon travelling to Australia in search of the source of the Numbers, Hurley met Martha Toomey, the wife of Sam Toomey, who had first heard the numbers. When asking about Sam's location, Martha stated that, in order to escape the numbers, Sam had killed himself several years prior to Hurley's visit. ("Numbers")

Sayid worked undercover with the CIA to expose a terrorist sect in Australia. He was reunited with his college friend Essam, and stated that he would orchestrate a suicide bombing with Essam, in order to locate the explosives. However, just before the bombing was about to occur, Sayid revealed to Essam his true mission. Essam, angered by the betrayal, held Sayid and gunpoint before turning the gun on himself. ("The Greater Good")

After the Crash

While in the hatch, a depressed Desmond contemplated suicide while drinking heavily and starting to read Our Mutual Friend; but then he heard Locke, angered by Boone's death, pounding on the hatch door above, restoring his faith and making him lose the thoughts of suicide, knowing he was not alone. ("Live Together, Die Alone")

Dave tries to get Hurley to jump off a cliff. ("Dave")

Hurley, almost a month later, soon became haunted by his imaginary friend, Dave. During his final meeting with Dave, Dave tried to convince him that the island wasn't real, and that it was all a figment of his imagination. Dave stated that if Hurley threw himself off a cliff, he would survive and wake up in Santa Rosa. However, Hurley was stopped by Libby, with whom he shared a kiss. ("Dave")

After leaving the island, Michael decided to reveal the fact that he had killed Libby and Ana Lucia to his son Walt. Walt then, however, wanted nothing to do with Michael, and opted to live with Michael's mother instead of Michael. Michael fell into a deep depression, and attempted suicide by ramming his car into a storage unit. While badly injured, Michael survived and quickly healed. After getting out of the hospital, Michael sold Jin's watch in order to purchase a revolver from the pawn shop.
"Not Yet." ("Meet Kevin Johnson")
Going into a nearby alley, he attempted to shoot himself, but the gun jammed several times. Tom then appeared, and stated that the Island would not let Michael die because he still had work to do. Upon returning home, Michael was still unable to shoot himself, and finally visited Tom to see what work was needed from him. ("Meet Kevin Johnson")

Later, on the Kahana, Michael prepared to blow up a suitcase bomb given to him by the Others, which would kill him and everyone else on board. However, when he went to detonate the deadly device, a small flag stating "Not yet," popped up, giving Michael yet another failed suicide attempt. ("Meet Kevin Johnson")

Meanwhile, Ben had shot Locke and left him in a pit for dead. Locke, finding a revolver on the corpse of a nearby Dharma worker, held the revolver to his head and attempted to pull the trigger. However, before he could carry on with the suicide, he was stopped by Walt, who told him he had "work to do." ("Through the Looking Glass")

At the Looking Glass, Mikhail Bakunin, though thought dead by Charlie and Desmond, escaped into the moon pool with a grenade. While Charlie made contact with Penny Widmore, Mikhail tapped on the glass, showing Charlie the grenade in his hand while pulling the pin. The grenade exploded, with Mikhail effectively killing himself and drowning Charlie at the same time. ("Through the Looking Glass")

Regina jumps off the Kahana. ("Ji Yeon")

Sometime later, upon arriving at the freighter, Desmond and Sayid saw Regina wrap herself in chains and throw herself off the side of the ship. Gault soon appeared and said that Regina's suicide was likely the result of "cabin fever" that was going around people on the ship. This was further confirmed by Ray, noticing a large blood stain at the wall in one of the ship's cabins, presumably of another suicide.("Ji Yeon")

After the escape of the Oceanic 6 from the island, John Locke, using the alias of Jeremy Bentham, followed them, and approached each of them, telling them of the repercussions of their leaving, and warning them that they needed to return to the island. However, after visiting them all, he was found dead in his apartment, and the death was ruled as a suicide. ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")

The truth, however, was that Ben had convinced Locke not to kill himself, but then strangled him with the same rope after hearing Locke tell him about Eloise Hawking. ("The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham")

After reading about Locke's death, Jack fell into a deeper depression, eventually pulling over while driving on a bridge and preparing to jump off. However, before he could do so, a car accident occurred behind him, a result of a driver being distracted by Jack standing on the side of the bridge. Jack abandoned his suicidal mission and saved the passenger and her son instead. ("Through the Looking Glass")

Post-island deaths

Appearances after death

Several characters have reappeared after death, although the form of that appearance is currently an unsolved mystery.

Death on the Island

  • Horace Goodspeed is discovered by Locke while chopping down a tree and they have a conversation about Locke's destiny.
  • Charlie Pace appears to Hurley at Santa Rosa Mental Institute. Charlie is also seen by another patient and slaps Hurley in the face during their conversation.
  • Libby Smith appears to Michael Dawson in his hospital room dressed as a nurse and again on the Kahana.
  • Ana Lucia Cortez appears to Hurley in Los Angeles. She is driving a police car and pulls him, then delivers a message to him.
  • Alex appears to Ben in the Temple, pins him to a column and demands that he follow Locke's leadership.

Dead body known to arrive on Island

  • Christian Shephard's coffin was on Oceanic 815. He appears soon after the crash to Jack. He also later appears to Jack in Los Angeles. He appears on the island to daughter Claire, holding his grandson Aaron, and convinces Claire to come with him and leave Aaron behind. He has subsequently appeared to Locke, Sun and Frank.
  • John Locke's coffin was on Ajira 316. He appears on the beach with the other survivors, talking to Ilana, his form having been taken by Jacob's enemy.
  • Yemi's body was placed on the smuggler's plane that crashed on the island. He appears to Eko.

Death off-Island

  • Emily Linus died giving birth to Ben, but later appears to him in the jungle and speaks to him.

It is unclear if Boone's appearance to Locke in the sweat lodge is truly an appearance, or occurred while Locke was having an induced hallucination.

Footnotes

Note 1: It is implied by Damon Lindelof during the August 2nd, 2007 podcast and in the World of the Others special that Isabel is also killed during this attack.

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

"Dying" redirects here. For information on dyeing clothes to recolour them, see Dye.
This article is about the death of an in-game player. For other uses, see Death (disambiguation).
A broken gravestone.
A player dying and leaving behind a gravestone.

Death occurs when a player's hitpoints reach zero. A message in the chat box informs them of this: Oh dear, you are dead! and a gravestone will appear at the spot in which they died.

Note: Gravestone will remain if player logs out or loses connection, but the timer will continue to run down.

A player dying in the 2007 Hallowe'en event with full health.

Fortunately, the player will respawn. If a player is in the duelling arena or a safe minigame when they "die" they will not lose any of their items and will not respawn in Lumbridge, Falador or Camelot. However, if a player dies in a safe area, they will respawn at a specified respawn point.

If a player dies while they have the Retribution prayer active, all enemies that are in a 3x3 square grid centred on the dying player are dealt damage equal to 1/4 of that player's maximum prayer level (only in a multi-combat area).

Contents

Respawning

Main article: Spawn

When players die, they will respawn, meaning they will be transported back to their respawn point with full hitpoints and prayer to live again. By default, players respawn in Lumbridge. However, if a member has completed the Recruitment Drive quest, they may choose to respawn in Falador instead. Completing the King's Ransom quest allows a player to start and complete the Knight Waves Training Grounds, which unlocks the ability to respawn in Camelot. Completing Nomad's requiem allow players to respawn in Soul Wars.

Items lost

Main article: Items Kept on Death

When a player dies, they will lose all items they were carrying at the time of their death except for their three most valuable items. Other than those three (or four, depending on whether or not Protect Item was used) items that the player kept, most of the remaining items will be under a gravestone for a certain amount of time. If the player manages to get back to his/her gravestone before it crumbles, they will be able to reclaim their items. If a player was skulled at the time of their death, because they were player killing in bounty hunter, in PvP worlds or because they had entered the Abyss without wearing a Forinthry bracelet, then they would not get to keep any items upon respawning.

However, if a player has the Protect item prayer active, they will get to keep one extra item if they die (i.e. four items or one if skulled).

Previously, in the 16 October 2007 update, items dropped from players killed by monsters or NPC's remains visible only to the dead player for 1 minute, in case he/she wants to recover his/her items. After that, anyone nearby will be able to see and take them. Since the gravestone update on 10 December 2007, though, this update is rendered obsolete.

For more information on exceptions see Items Kept on Death.

Item anomalies

The precedence for retaining an item depends on its store or alchemy value, which can often be at considerable variance with the value to players. Rares such as party hats, (alchemy value: 1 coin), are items vulnerable to this problem. Because lent items are kept above all other items on hand, some players borrow an item in return for lending the same item to another player so that it may be kept upon death.

When someone dies you can bless their grave stone. This allows their gravestone to last longer, approximately sixty minutes. This requires 70 Prayer. The different types of gravestones will last longer. You can change your gravestone with Father Aereck in Lumbridge after finishing The Restless Ghost and for members Blasidar the sculptor in Keldagrim after finishing The Giant Dwarf.

Wikipedia has an article about:

Grim Reaper

Main article: Grim Reaper
A player dying for the first time.

Due to a recent update, the realm of the Grim Reaper is accessed when new players die for the first time. The Reaper will explain about death, item losses, and gravestones. The player may exit at any time through the exit portal. One's gravestone's timer is paused whilst one is within the dimension of the Reaper. The player is, at this time, "dead". The player is only allowed this one time, the first time they die, though they apparently pass through this every time upon death. This occurs only once per player. Currently, there is a glitch making it so you die there. After you die there, you will still be there, just with all your tabs unlocked allowing you to teleport out. If you die again after doing this glitch you will go back to the realm.

Trivia

  • If a player casts a Blood spell from the Ancient Magicks spellbook shortly before his health hits 0, the player will die and gain health, making it look like the player died with some health left.
  • Similar to the above, in most cases, if something kills you but at the very second you eat, you will die with positive health.
  • If a player dies in RuneScape Classic, the message in their chatbox says "You have been granted another life. Be more careful this time! You retain your skills. Your objects land where you died."
  • Sometimes, in cases of extreme lag NPCs will stay in their positions after death, without performing the death emote, and later disappearing.

"Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force."
Yoda to Anakin Skywalker

Death was the cessation of life functions in a biological organism, permanently rendering it unresponsive to any external factors. The term "death" was also sometimes applied to droids damaged beyond repair. Sentient individuals (and perhaps all living beings), were known to enter a different plane of existence.

Causes of death

Death by blaster bolt.
"I'm afraid, in your anger, you killed her."
Emperor Palpatine, lying to Darth Vader about his wife's death

In most cases, death was caused by the major body parts within an organism simply "breaking down" from age and/or constant use. However, it could also be caused by irreparable damage to the major organs, such as them being ruptured, sliced, blasted, or similarly damaged. Death could also be caused by the loss of bodily fluids, as they are required to ferry certain nutrients required for life to continue. In most cases this was oxygen, however a number of species breathed other substances, such as methane or cyanogen. Suffocation could also bring about death, as it cut off the source of the required gas. If an organism entered an extremely hot or reactive area, their body could easily burn up and disintegrate, causing instant death.


Another cause was from cancers and infections, which occurred when dangerous bacteria and microbes took up residence in the host body, killing the flesh in that area, causing necrosis, and providing stable residence for more bacteria. Death was either caused by the bacteria getting into the bloodstream and causing necrosis in vital areas of the body, or the necrosis could simply spread and grow, literally squishing the vital organs until they ceased to function.

Death and culture

"Twilight is upon me, and soon night must fall. That is the way of things... the way of the Force."
―Yoda to Luke Skywalker
Anakin Skywalker kneels and pays respect to his mother's grave.

Tending to the dead constituted a significant part of culture. In many cultures, the bodies of the dead were buried either under the ground or in tombs, or burned to ashes during a funeral ceremony, attended by friends, relatives, and others who wanted to show their respect for the dead person and mourn their loss. The Jedi Order was known to cremate the bodies of their dead upon funeral pyres.

The attendance of funerals varied depending on the social status and notoriety of the dead person. In 22 BBY, the funeral of Shmi Skywalker Lars, a former slave and later a moisture farmer's wife on Tatooine, was attended by a handful of friends and relatives: her premarital son Anakin Skywalker, her later husband Cliegg Lars, his son (from Cliegg's earlier marriage) Owen Lars, as well as Beru Whitesun, Padmé Amidala, and the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO.[1] On the other hand, when Padmé Amidala, former Queen and Senator of Naboo, died in 19 BBY, her funeral was attended by an enormous procession of mourners, including Queen Apailana of Naboo, Boss Rugor Nass of the Gungans, and Representative Jar Jar Binks, her successor as Senator of Naboo;[2] furthermore, the day of Amidala's death was deemed a national day of mourning in the Galactic Empire by Emperor Palpatine, himself a Naboo.[3]

Tusken Raider burial site on Tatooine

The Alliance to Restore the Republic honored their deceased officers with a space burial, where the coffin was released from a cruiser into the vacuum of space. These funerals were usually attended by many other Alliance personnel who served with the deceased being.

Some cultures, such as the ancient Sith of Korriban, had a tradition to honor their deceased leaders by putting them to rest in spacious, well-decorated tombs or crypts, along with objects that were dear to them when they were alive, or could potentially aid them in afterlife, if such a belief existed in the culture.

In Yuuzhan Vong society, death was accepted. They believed the manner in which you died was the most important. Those who died an honorable death in battle would bring pride to their Domain, but those beings who died shamefully would bring dishonor.

Mandalorian society had a tradition of burying their dead in large, unmarked mass graves. Though considered offensive by other cultures, mass graves were useful for Mandalorians, who descended from spacefaring warrior-nomads. The exception of this rule was the Mandalore, who received a marked grave.

Death and the Force

Qu Rahn appearing in a vision to Kyle Katarn.
"There is no death; there is the Force."
―The Jedi Code

While all beings possessed, to some degree, a natural fear of death, as an undesirable and inevitable yet permanent condition, the Jedi, guided by the Jedi Code, learned to view death not as a tragedy, but merely as a part of the life cycle. The Jedi, viewing themselves as servants of the Force, were always ready to sacrifice their lives if necessary.

Obi-Wan Kenobi becomes one with the Force upon his death by Darth Vader.

Some Force users were able to survive in spirit form after their physical body died and interact with living beings, as well as other dead Force-sensitives. This phenomenon mostly manifested itself in the form of Force ghosts, something which applied even to the Sith, like Marka Ragnos and Ajunta Pall whose spiritual forms lingered in the physical world for millennia.

Notably, three Sith Lords tried to "cheat death" in their own ways: Darth Andeddu, as a spirit, used the Force to retain control over his physically dead and decaying body.[4] Darth Plagueis, according to a Sith legend, discovered a way to influence the midichlorians to keep others from dying. His apprentice, Palpatine, also known as Darth Sidious, used a supply of clone bodies, so he could possess a new body after the previous one died.[5] Other Sith have done the same, including Darth Sion, whose decaying body was held together by the dark side and his own hatred, [6] Darth Nihilus, who transfered his consciousness to his armor, and Exar Kun, whose spirit was imprisoned in the Massassi Temple on Yavin 4. Darth Maul was also resurrected by unknown means after his death on Naboo.

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

And the sounds of a billion fanboys' cries were heard across the land.

Unusually for something that started as a children's toy and an '80s cartoon, death of important characters is a prominent feature in Transformers. The reasons for it vary from plot development to the arrival of new toys. However, the fact that the majority of characters are machines means that death isn't automatically an absolute in the various Transformers universes—various characters that appear to have been killed have been known to pop up alive again at a later date, or go through some sort of revival. However, it's not unheard of for death to sometimes be permanent in Transformers.

How can you all be so cold and unfeeling? He died a hero!
Don't you even have mechanical hearts?
The humans don't understand! Our form of life is vastly different from theirs!

Spider-Man, Sparkplug Witwicky, and Optimus Prime, "Prisoner of War!"

Contents

Generation One

Marvel comics continuity

The first time the concept of death was addressed in Transformers was when Gears appeared to fall to his death while he and Spider-Man were rescuing Sparkplug Witwicky. The Autobots coldly gathered up Gears's parts, which creeped out Spidey and Sparkplug, who were expecting some show of sadness for the Autobots' fallen comrade. Gears was rebuilt and back in tip-top shape without a problem. Prisoner of War! This easy cheating of death would be seen again in the storyline that followed, where Shockwave would viciously injure all Autobots bar Ratchet, only for them to be up and running later on (bar Sunstreaker).

The first confirmed human death was in Marvel UK's #45, where Professor Morris used a brainwashed Swoop to murder a security guard. The Icarus Theory

Outright Transformer death would first be seen in the first story set on Cybertron. The story opens with a Decepticon killing civilians only for Blaster to kill it; Straxus, current commander of the Decepticons, was constantly throwing hordes of Transformers to their deaths in his smelting pool; and Blaster's ally Scrounge died a quite brutal death. The Smelting Pool!

Soon death would be seen again and again, particularly in Furman's UK strips—generally these deaths would be of original characters who lacked toys, such as Impactor. Target: 2006 This was a useful way of getting across a sense of genuine war and build reader tension, while simultaneously leaving the toy characters untouched.

Gears died as he lived—not being on-panel.

Optimus Prime himself would end up outright dying to clear the way for new characters—following immediately on, Megatron was killed in a Space Bridge accident. Afterdeath! Gone But Not Forgotten! The following issue would have the Transformers holding a funeral for Optimus, Funeral For A Friend! while a crossover story unceremoniously bumped off Dirge. Ashes, Ashes... This kill-spree was slightly undermined by Bob Budiansky leaving himself a get-out clause, and showing the reader that a back-up copy of Optimus Prime's mind could exist. Megatron, meanwhile, would turn up alive in Marvel UK so they could sneak around the US stories without contradicting their plots (he'd later be retconned as a clone). Ancient Relics!

Marvel UK stories set in the post-movie future got to be even more kill-happy—as they didn't have to bother meshing with the present day continuity, any character could be killed off. As well as minor ones such as Inferno, this would also include major character Shockwave. The Legacy of Unicron!

Soon, Transformers was saddled with a large number of characters who no longer had toys—to thin the crowd, both Simon Furman and Budiansky began repeated cullings so the newer toys could get more "screen time". In Marvel UK, most of the Wreckers, Galvatron (and previously Cyclonus), and a few little-seen Decepticons would all be slaughtered Time Wars. That paled before the most grandiose of slaughters, the Underbase Saga, where a super powered Starscream destroyed/deactivated dozens of Transformers, Autobot and Decepticon alike. Conveniently, only those with organic bits (Headmasters, Pretenders et al) could survive the Underbase. Dark Star! Many of these characters would remain dead until the climax of the Unicron saga, when they were revived by Nucleon; at the same time, the Unicron battle would kill off scores of characters who'd survived the Underbase! On the Edge of Extinction!

American cartoon continuity

Who knew Autobots could be killed by shooting their shoulders?

The Transformers: The Movie is infamous for the slaughter of a large number of season 1 and 2 characters, especially the likes of Optimus Prime and Starscream. The reason for this was the upcoming season 3 toy line. Some would die without getting a chance to say anything or even being named.

In this continuity, dead Transformers can still exist as ghosts. These ghosts are capable of possessing the forms of living Transformers. Starscream's Ghost Or at least Starscream can; there's no evidence of any other Transformers being able to do the same.

When Matrix bearers die, their wisdom and spirits remain within the Matrix. A near-death experience allows the current Matrix bearer to make contact with these spirits. Five Faces of Darkness, Part 4

Japanese cartoon continuity

The Japanese continuity did not skimp on showing death as a part of war. Aside from numerous generic robots (for example, the prison guards from Victory), notable characters were also killed. The most famous victim of this tendency was Ultra Magnus, who died in battle against Sixshot in The Headmasters. In Super-God Masterforce, Sixknight was killed by Devil Z and Black Zarak perished in the finale along with the Decepticon Emperor.

However, Transformers that have been mortally wounded can be rebuilt into new forms, as happened with Soundwave/Soundblaster and Ginrai/Victory Leo. Also, because of a different approach to censorship, human death was not unheard of. While not present in the first two seasons (which were simply translated from the American version) nor the following Headmasters cartoon, plenty of humans became unlucky collateral damage from Masterforce onwards. Besides victims such as Professor Gō early in the series, the Decepticons often slaughtered people in the course of their activities. Giga, for example, destroyed a passing airliner (presumably killing all aboard) simply to test his new Deathball toys. In Victory, Earth was spared much destruction until the latter half of the series, when Deathsaurus's forces began attacking in earnest (killing countless human soldiers in the process). In addition, Star Saber's adopted son, Jean Minakaze, was the sole survivor of a Decepticon attack.

At the same time, supernatural forces irrefutably exist in this universe and are capable of reversing the process of death. Optimus Prime died a second time A Dream is Born, Double Prime but was brought back by Zodiac energy as Star Convoy The Battlestars; the evil entity Dark Nova took Galvatron's remains and reformatted them as Super Megatron. The demonic being Violen Jygar resurrected many Decepticons to serve as his Demon Generals Enter the New Supreme Commander, Dai Atlas!.

The Kiss Players, infected by Galvatron's cells, are capable of resurrecting dead Transformers like Optimus by kissing him and channelling the cells into him; however, once the cells were taken out, Optimus died again. Kiss Players

Generation 2

The Generation 2 comic had less oversight from Hasbro, a whole lot of inherited characters that didn't have toys, and an existence in the extreeeeeme and violent 1990s US comic industry. The result was the Transformer equivalent of the Battle of the Somme—almost every issue would have a known Transformer or three being killed off. Even the crossover with G.I. Joe, setting up Megatron's new toy, killed off four. Final Transformations

Blades in Generation 2: a violent, gritty, pointlessly graphic nightmare… in Generation 2.

Even characters who had previously been major ones in the Marvel Comics would be killed, with Nightbeat, Bludgeon, Spike Witwicky and Fortress Maximus all dying alongside lesser-seen characters like Skullgrin and Red Alert. Amusingly, some of these characters (such as Dirge, Joyride and Quake) had died in earlier G1 issues and had returned from the dead without explanation solely to be bumped off.

In addition, the Transformers would slaughter large numbers of Cybertronian Empire soldiers, and many alien planets were shown being exterminated. Earth didn't escape unscathed either, with widespread devastation, open slaughter of humans and the obliteration of San Francisco. Oh, and Prime dies and comes back again.


Beast Wars

Even having a new toy couldn't save Terrorsaur!

Beast Wars, being a CGI cartoon, could not afford to have too many characters in the show at any one time—once they reached seven-a-side by Season 1, any new character coming in would mean an old one going out. This led to some quite arbitrary deaths, such as Terrorsaur and Scorponok falling into lava and going unmourned, or Tigatron and Airazor suddenly being dragged into space by the Vok. Dinobot, by contrast, had an episode devoted to his heroic sacrifice and his death served as the end to his plot arc for that season, and has become one of the most popular episodes. Code of Hero

One problem Beast Wars had with killing characters is that every character on the show would be blown up real good during the series, only to be put back together again—this would mean when they were actually being killed, they'd sometimes be suffering less damage than they had in battles where they lived. In addition, Optimus Primal and Blackarachnia both died and came back with brand new bodies, showing death to be a potential revolving door. At one point, Inferno was clearly vaporised in an explosion—but, because it was decided not to kill him when Season 3 started, he was suddenly merely a bit singed. Optimal Situation

We're not using the Z word!

The character of Dinobot II presents interesting questions about Transformer death. While cloned from the original Dinobot and possessing the same voice, same look (albeit an eerie skeletal version) and same skills, he had a different personality & memories and was clearly a different character, even carrying a different Spark (half of Rampage's). However, in the season finale, the destruction of Rampage caused him to gain an increasing number of Dinobot's memories that he could not have and start gaining Dinobot's personality. He also viewed his Spark as being "different… at last complete". Nemesis Part 2 How all this occured was not explained; based on the visual of him turning into the original Dinobot & back again when Rampage was destroyed, Nemesis Part 1 it could be assumed the original was influencing him.

The final three episodes would kill seven characters, including the majority of the Predacons and two of the Maximals—including Tigerhawk, who only appeared two episodes before his death—to pave the way for Beast Machines.

IDW comics continuity

IDW's Beast Wars comics would introduce a large number of unused toys into the fiction—a large number of which were then massacred in the second miniseries. Many of them had hardly got a chance to show any characterization. The exception is Razorbeast, who had been the main character in the previous story and had to be euthanised by one of his friends. The Ascending

Beast Machines

Primal's diet had gone horribly wrong.

The premise of Beast Machines was that Megatron had taken over Cybertron and removed the Sparks from everyone, leaving massive graveyards across the planet. However, this hadn't actually killed anyone—as long as the Sparks survived, they could be put in a new body and live again, and everyone was restored at the end of the series. Endgame Pt. III: Seeds of the Future

The series would also introduce the concept of the Allspark—a dimension composed of Transformer Sparks, the home of every one that will or can ever be. When a Transformer dies, their Spark returns to it and all of their knowledge and life experience is added to the Allspark. Rhinox's spirit would be seen within in it, advising Optimus Primal to move on.

Optimus Primal was outright killed, but would come back to life again after deciding not to join with the Allspark but continue his mission Fallout; this could be seen an in-universe explanation for why some Transformers return to life while others stay dead. Primal would die properly later on, taking Megatron with him.

The original Vehicon generals contained the Sparks of existing Beast Wars characters but possessed completely different personalities—most notably Thrust, the brooding, loyal and fearless general who had Waspinator's Spark. Overriding the general's shell programs to bring back the original characters could be seen as killing the Vehicons.

Singularity Ablyss

Megatron would also have the opportunity to allow himself to pass on and rejoin the Allspark. However, his repeated returns to life (during "Spark of Darkness") convinced him he could still achieve godhood and so he rejected passing on. He also erased Rhinox's Spark, showing that even the dead can be killed. Singularity Ablyss[1]

Robots in Disguise

The Robots in Disguise franchise is unique in that almost nobody dies. The exception is Megatron—he was completely destroyed, but then reborn as Galvatron due to the Orb of Sigma and energy drained from Predacon sparks. Peril from the Past While possessing the same voice, personality and general form of Megatron, Galvatron declares himself to be a different person and his former self to be dead. Maximus Emerges

Universe

The shocking death of the barely-seen guys with hardly any lines!

The BotCon comic The Wreckers would use death quite a lot in its second issue, for one very specific reason—they'd brought in too many bloody characters in the first issue. A few massacres later and the cast was down to a more manageable level. Betrayal

Universe's multiverse-spanning story allows for a lot of death in character backstories—Smokescreen is killed by another Smokescreen, Unicron's generals all killed Megatron in their home dimensions, and Megazarak has killed everyone on his Cybertron. Shell Game Conversely, it also allowed for a whole load of character resurrectionsOptimus Primal, Depth Charge, Rhinox and Tarantulas all returned from the dead. One of the Wreckers, meanwhile, is a revived Tigatron.


Unicron Trilogy

Cartoon

Optimus Prime once died, hit by Megatron's Hydra Cannon and crumbling to dust. Crisis Through the power of the Matrix, he was resurrected by the Mini-Cons shortly afterward. Miracle

Galvatron died to save everyone and came back twice—you lose, Jesus!

Both Galvatron Mortal Combat and Starscream Cramp would make heroic sacrifices in Armada to stop Unicron—only to return from the dead for the Energon cartoon. And then sacrificed themselves again at the end of that one The Sun—and came back again for the next cartoon!

Some characters would be severely injured and seemingly killed, but would survive by being rebuilt into a new character—Smokescreen became Hoist, Tidal Wave became Mirage, etc.

Alpha Quintesson and Unicron possessed the ability to create new Transformers—Terrorcons and Scorponok—out of the remains of the dead. Scorponok was an odd case: it was originally presented that he was a recreated version of an inhabitant of Alpha Q's homeworld, but later retconned that he was, in fact, merely created in that being's image, and actually animated by the Spark of a dead Decepticon. This retcon, however, did not make it into the Energon, since the episode featuring it was not dubbed. Scorponok was later killed, but in both the fan club comics and Cybertron toy tech specs, he became an undead monster.

In the Unicron Trilogy cartoons, resurrection often altered the basic personality of a Transformer. Tidal Wave became more intelligent as Mirage, as well as gaining a crush on Galvatron; Demolishor devolved in intelligence and became more ape-like; the morally conflicted Starscream, who sacrificed himself for the greater good, would became an ambitious power-hungry traitor like those other Starscreams. This has not occurred in other canons, where death and rebirth rarely seems to cause any real problems for anyone.

Comic

While it can be safely assumed people did die in the Autobot-Decepticon war, it was only shown on panel when the Unicron plotline took over. Worlds Collide In addition, Unicron was shown to be able to kill and rebuild Transformers into his loyal servants, doing it to Rhinox and his fellow Beast Warriors. This Evil Reborn While his body had died, Megatron's consciousness remained within Unicron's spark core, and from here was able to return to life with a new body.

Transformers (film) movie

The live-action movie would feature death galore in its climactic battle scenes, with almost every Decepticon being wiped out and Jazz being killed in battle. Not to mention the humans; almost an entire military base is wiped out by Blackout; Scorponok's enjoyment of stabbing; possible demises caused by Frenzy on Air Force One; Bonecrusher hatefully sweeping away traffic; and countless possible casualties in Mission City. Transformers (film)

IDW Publishing

Comic books can get away with this, while PG-13 movies can't

Starscream blew up an F-22 Raptor to obtain his alternate mode. Prime Directive (IDW) issue 4 He kills countless Sector 7 soldiers when searching for Frenzy's body in the Hoover Dam, and takes a human along while leaving Earth to see if he can survive the trip. He doesn't. The Reign of Starscream issue 2

On the Transformers side, a whole lot of toys die bloody in "The Reign of Starscream Issue Number Three"—coincidentally after they'd been on the shelves for a while. The Reign of Starscream issue 3

Titan Magazines

From the ninth issue of Transformers Comic, the movie-based comic strip took place in an alternate universe where the Decepticons won in the film. As a result, human casualties are quite high; thousands of NATO sailors are killed in battle, Starscream bombs humans to spread terror, and Sam Witwicky is established to have died.

Shockingly for a Furman-written alternate universe, Transformer deaths have so far been few. No Autobots are yet confirmed as dead (though Longarm was shot down and not seen since…), while Decepticon casualties so far include Bonecrusher, Frenzy and Megatron following the initial story. Many Decepticon drones, however, are wiped out by the heroes.

The All Spark is shown to be capable of raising the dead, here being used to bring back Jazz. Any corruption of the All Spark, however, corrupts the resurrected. Transformers Comic issue 16

Revenge of the Fallen

In the second film, even more characters, human and robot, are killed. In the opening fight in Shangai, decepticon Sideways is sliced inhalf by Side swipe (in his car mode, more embarissing for the guy), and his big buddy Demolisher is shot in the face by Optimus Prime, right after run over lots of traffic with his huge wheels.

During the mission to revive Megatron, The Doctor orders the Constucticons to "kill ze little one!", on proper name terms Scrapmetal, for parts to rebuild their leader.

Mikala runs over Alice the Pretender.Kiss that bitch indeed.

Later in the forrest battle, Optimus kills Grindor by slicing his face. Shockingly, when his back was turned Megatron stabs Optimus in the back and blasts his chest open, killing him in a most brutal fashion.

Many characters die in the Eygpt battle. Bumblebee kills Rampage by decking him, while also killing Ravage. Sam breaks a Insecticon apart, which is pretty stupid as it alerts the Decepticons. Devastator is shot down by a rail gun apon Agent Simmons's orders. One of the Arcee units is apparantly killed as well. Jetfire kills Mixmaster and Scorpanark quite easily, for an old guy. While running to revive Optimus with the matrix of leadership, Sam is shot at by Megatron and nearly dies. Later in the battle, Jetfire gives away his spark to bring back Optimus. Optimus kills The Fallen by punching through his chest and pulling out his spark.

Transformers Animated

Death — the Optimus version of a power nap.

Severe physical damage does not kill Transformers in the Animated universe — Megatron survived despite being reduced to a severed head, while Lugnut and Blitzwing remained conscious despite being in bits Lost and Found and the dismembered Soundwave has been hinted to still function. Sound and Fury

Transformer death is, however, possible — a combination of physical damage and AllSpark energy outright killed Optimus Prime. He was resurrected immediately afterward by the Key, which contained AllSpark energy. Transform and Roll Out

Starscream also was killed Megatron Rising, Part 2 only to be brought back to life by AllSpark energy. In his case, despite his Spark being extinguished, an AllSpark shard has embedded in his head and makes him immortal — kill him, and he'll just come back two minutes later. This has possibly made him the most tenacious (and annoying) Starscream to date. To Megatron, anyway. Mission Accomplished

Similarly, Omega Supreme had died long ago saving Cybertron in the Great War, but with AllSpark energy he was able to be revived. (Worryingly, the Autobots had used his remains to make a spaceship; it is unknown if this is common.) A Bridge Too Close, Part II

Is he trying to pretend to be Mogera.

It's up for debate as to whether Blurr was killed, though he's not the first to be crushed into a cube and he didn't turn gray like other dead guys did. TransWarped

Unlike all the others, Yoketron actually stays dead.

In the end, two guys died, Prowl dies while saving the city from the Starscream Supremes, while Starscream dies when the AllSpark fragment got pulled of from his head. Endgame, Part 2

Footnotes

  1. However, due to an editorial caveat in the foreword, all the prose stories in Transformers Legends are "What If?" stories that are not to be considered as actually occurring in the continuities they are based on. As a result, the events depicted in "Singularity Ablyss" technically belong to a Micro-continuity and are therefore not canon for the mainstream Beast Machines continuity.
