Note that the character needs to be KilledOffForReal or CharacterDeath for the trope to have the desired effect; it does not work if the writers cheat and [[DeathIsCheap bring back the guy later]] (see NotQuiteDead, DisneyDeath, and ClimacticBattleResurrection). As such SuperHero Comic Books as a medium have gained a reputation of "Anyone Can Die... [[FirstLawOfResurrection until someone wants to use the character in a later story]]."

Anyone Can Die is where '''no one''' is exempt from being killed, including pets, children, the elderly, even the main characters ([[TheHeroDies maybe even the hero]])! The SacrificialLamb is often used to establish the writer's willingness to kill off important characters early on. To really be the Anyone Can Die trope, the work must include multiple deaths of named characters, happening at different points in the story. Bonus points if the death is unnecessary and devoid of HeroicSacrifice.

This trope is very helpful in keeping GenreSavvy fans from being SpoiledByTheFormat. In a kid's show, ''of course'' AliceAndBob are going to survive the raging rapids. In a work of this type however, the danger actually becomes dangerous.

Most of the time when you finally grasp who the main characters of the story are, you can expect that [[PlotArmor these characters will survive]] through the end of the story. [[WellThisIsNotThatTrope That is not this trope.]]
