* At the climax of ''TheDeathGateCycle'', main villain [[TheHeartless Sang-drax]], normally a MagnificentBastard par excellence, dies in an incredibly lame fashion- by rearing up too high and slamming his head (he's a giant snake in his true form) into the ceiling, causing it to collapse on him. Upon giving the scene some thought, however, I remembered that the chamber the climax took place in was actually a portal that led straight to the series' version of God, and therefore filled with energies that Sang-drax would find anathemic. That means ''he was most likely already dying'' from the moment he entered the chamber (which he only did in a panic to stop the magical ritual going on there), and it's no wonder he wasn't able to avoid the ceiling with half his brain fried. It's still a lame send-off for a great villain, but at least it's a send-off that ''makes sense''. - MasterGhandalf
