Heavily wounded and on the verge of death, the Almost Dead Guy manages to stay alive just long enough to answer a question, or [[BringNewsBack give a message]] (or at least [[HisNameIs the first part of a message]]--or even an [[DyingCurse insult]]). Almost Dead Guys seem to have a sixth sense of their value to the plot, and if necessary will cling to life for hours, sometimes even days, only to die within minutes of being questioned.
