There are, however, some characters who ''stay'' dead. These are the [[FriendlyTarget loved ones]] who suffered DeathByOriginStory, and play a vital role in the motivations of the hero. Their death can be (in)directly the hero's fault (Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}, Uncle Ben), not their fault but still a huge motivation (Franchise/{{Batman}}, Thomas and Martha Wayne) or simply there to add drama (Franchise/{{Superman}}, Pa Kent). Similarly, ScarsAreForever when they represent an important event for a character (for instance, [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl}} Barbara Gordon's]] lower body paralysis).

** ''MortalKombatLegacy'' reveals that sorcerer Quan Chi impersonated Bi Han (AKA Sub-Zero) and, along with Shang Tsung, set the whole thing up in order to trick General Hanzo Hasashi (AKA Scorpion) to join the Netherrealm in Mortal Kombat.
