Added DiffLines:

** In the final part, "Stinkmeaner: Begun the Clone War Has" in Season 4, a clone of Stinkmeaner begins picking on Robert and puts him through a HumiliationConga. [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Ed Wuncler Sr.]] then forces Robert to fight him again so he can make money off it, which culminates in Robert delivering a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown and telling Stinkmeaner to leave him alone. He agrees, because he's just a clone with none of Stinkmeaner's memories and barely even knows Robert.


Added DiffLines:

** Due to her voice actress Marcia Wallace's death, WordOfGod is that Edna Krabappel has become this. After Marcia's death Edna was given a few silent cameos up until the end of Season 25 when Nelson and Ned Flanders are seen mourning at her grave.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' Season 1: "Granddad's Fight." The karmic fate of life-long, Five-Star MagnificentBastard Colonel H. Stinkmeaner, who effectively gets his ass handed to him by Robert Freeman in an ironic CurbStompBattle: Stinkmeaner had beaten up Freeman in an argument over a parking spot, and the entire episode revolves around Huey making him out to be a version of a blind assassin, and Robert training for a rematch. It turns out Stinkmeaner was just a crotchety old man who got lucky. Unfortunately, he's such a temporal JerkAss, absolutely ''nobody'' realizes this until Robert pulverizes him. The beating is so bad, Stinkmeaner ends up stone-cold dead with a solid punch to the face. Feeling remorseful at his grave, Robert prays to God for forgiveness the end of the episode.

* In a subversion of [[JokerImmunity the very trope named after him]], the Joker eventually got this treatment in the {{DCAU}}. Yes, having proven himself as much of a survivor as his counterpart in the comics, every bit the "no one" in NoOneCouldSurviveThat, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'' took the big leap and put him down once and for all - killing him twice; first his body was destroyed and buried deep within Arkham Asylum in flashback, then the chip containing a copy of his DNA and memories was burned out, just to make sure he won't be coming back. (In just a bit of a cheat, the event occurs at the far end of the universe-at-large's history, allowing him to show up in stories taking place earlier; ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' took advantage of this.)
* B'wana Beast, [[ComicBook/BlueBeetle Ted Kord]], the original ComicBook/BlackCanary, and the entire ComicBook/DoomPatrol are all killed off during the three season run of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold''. The deceased heroes do appear in the show's GrandFinale, but only as part of a [[BreakingTheFourthWall Fourth Wall-breaking]] wrap party that [[BittersweetEnding shows the entire cast together one last time before everything fades to black.]]

** Although dead, Stinkmeaner [[TookaLevelinBadass makes one hell of a return]] in Season 2: "Stinkmeaner Strikes Back"- ''literally''. Stinkmeaner has been sent to hell after death, but now proves he can seriously fight back- by pummeling his way through every demon who steps up to challenge him. Satan himself is so marveled at Stinkmeaner's badass exposition, he sends him back to Earth to [[ResurrectedForAJob spread ignorance and chaos among the black community]], also giving him the opportunity to seek revenge against the Freeman family. As a ghost, he posesses Tom Dubois and trashes most of his house. After Uncle Ruckus and Riley fail miserably at exorcising Stinkmeaner, Ghostface Killah's spirit shows up and clues Huey in to the solution: put Stinkmeaner at peace by having Ruckus spout off about how he hates black people, a hate Stinkmeaner firmly shares with him. Moments later, he's exorcised and sent right back to hell.
** In yet another Stinkmeaner-related episode, death strikes again, this time nailing Bushido Brown, via [[OffWithHisHead on-screen decapitation]] during his fight in Season 3: Stinkmeaner 3: The Hateocracy". The Colonel apparently palled around with a group of disgruntled elderly, [[JerkAss nigh-crazy jerkasses]] who formed the Hateocracy, a gang that wreaked havoc within the walls of a nursing home. The members of the gang show up to [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] the Freeman family in what looks like a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, so the Freemans hire Bushido as their equally jerkass bodyguard, who actually holds off the Hateocracy- until he catches a [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning disk of doom to the neck]]. The Freeman family's reaction? A group [[PrecisionFStrike "OH, SHIIIIT!"]].

** In the last episode, Kid Flash is disintegrated when he absorbs too much energy helping The Flash and Impulse get rid of an energy field that threatened to envelop the Earth. To honor his memory [[LegacyCharacter Impulse takes up his mantle]]. To hammer the point home, he gets a hologram in the garden like Jason Todd, Tula and Ted Kord.

* It was announced that this would happen to a major character in the series finale of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''.



** In the Season 5 episode The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone, Arimaspi is shown to have fallen into the Abysmal Abyss, and his skull is later seen.



*** Tirek and Lavan's deaths are notable not only because a series based on something as innocent as the ''My Little Pony'' series is probably the last place anyone would expect to see someone die, but also because killing off characters was something very rare to be seen in ''any'' TV cartoon in the 1980s.



* In ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' they have killed off the main villains of season 2, 3 and 4 at the end of those seasons. In addition to this, we lost [[HeroicSacrifice Nabu]] in season 4.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', in an episode of the sixth season a minor character (Root Beer Guy) ends up dying in an HeroicSacrifice. Even after everyone else that died in the same battle he did ends up being revived, he stays dead. The episode is then dedicated in his memory.

* The title character from ''TheSnowman''; [[TearJerker the boy finds that he has melted]], [[DownerEnding and then the cartoon ends]]. He never comes back.
** Wrong. In the follow-up, ''FatherChristmas'', the Snowman (and Boy) are discovered alive and partying at the North Pole. The dialogue makes it clear that this is a year after the events of TheSnowman. Raising the possibility that a dead Snowman can simply be resurrected. FridgeHorror?
