Either way, having a character with multiple objects sticking out of them adds a touch of dramatic tension, while highlighting that character's BadAss qualities, even if they die. Note, however, that for this trope to have been truly invoked, the work must feature a character with a sufficient amount of projectiles/weapons stuck in their body, typically at least 4 or 5. Otherwise, the atmosphere created isn't quite the same.
