* The world will never know what reception ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' would have gotten on its own merit because the hype was warped through the buzz of Creator/HeathLedger's death. It became the second-highest grossing film of all time in America (not adjusted for inflation), and the fourth to surpass $1 billion worldwide. Ledger won a lot of posthumous awards, including the Oscar and a level of insane fan worship that climaxed with [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill calls for The Joker to forever be retired as a film or television character so that no one would ever follow Ledger]]. However, Ledger's ''very'' final movie, ''Film/TheImaginariumOfDrParnassus'', received mixed reviews and only a moderate gross. (Though to be fair, unlike ''Dark Knight'', ''Imaginarium'' did not feature a complete performance by the actor.)

** In the show's parody of ''{{Amadeus}}'', the dying Mozart (Bart) comments to his sister (Lisa, the Salieri figure) that he thought she was the more talented artist, but now that he is dying young he'll "be cool forever".

* As Website/TheAgonyBooth's Albert Walker [[http://www.agonybooth.com/agonizer/The_NeverEnding_Story_II__The_Next_Chapter_1990.aspx remembers]] and describes as "Dying Young Retroactively Makes You More Talented", the suicide of Jonathon Brandis earned him this status ("Seriously, prior to his death, reviewers mostly described Brandis' ''Series/SeaQuestDSV'' character as a dopier version of [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Wesley]] [[CreatorsPet Crusher]]").

* While he was highly valued throughout his life and was far from being forgotten, Mexican singer Juan Gabriel became the Latin American highest example of this trope after his sudden death in August 2016, just two days after giving a concert in Los Angeles and the same day the final episode of his autobiographic TV series premiered in Mexico. The reaction to his death has probably surpassed the levels of all other singers who have died so far during 2016.

The reaction to his death has probably surpassed the levels is comparable to those of all other singers who have died so far during 2016.Elvis Presley, John Lennon and Michael Jackson.

* Creator/SatoruIwata, former president of Creator/{{Nintendo}}, was a rather polarising figure for his strategy of attracting new, "casual" gamers with the UsefulNotes/Wii, as opposed to appealing to established players. Many called for him to resign after the UsefulNotes/WiiU failed to match sales with its UsefulNotes/XboxOne and UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 rivals. After he passed away in 2015, he was known as a fellow gamer who cared for Nintendo's audience, and more of his SugarWiki/GeniusProgramming feats were known -- almost universally turning his portrayal amongst gamers into a positive one.
