Invoked by DeadStarWalking. Sometimes used to describe a state in a game that's UnwinnableByDesign. Not to be confused with DeadCharacterWalking, which describes a video game glitch where the player still has control over a dead character.

* At one point in the {{novelization}} of ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'', Anakin starts losing the duel when [[IShallTauntYou Dooku starts taunting him over his fear of the anger in his heart]], until Palpatine yells at him to use his fear and anger as his weapons to kill Dooku. At that point, the narration makes it clear that Dooku's a dead man; despite trying to keep up the fight, even he sees his impending death.

* Another [=WH40K=] example: Within the NightLords legion there was a practice of placing a suspended execution upon legionaries who warranted death, but were too valuable to be executed at present. Their gauntlets were painted [[MarkOfShame arterial, or "sinner's" red]] and their lives continued at the whim of their primarch.
