* At the end of chapter 70 of ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', [[spoiler: Harry]] is killed by ComicBook/Daken after succumbing to rage inspired by the death of [[spoiler: Luna Lovegood during a HYDRA attack on Hogwarts]] and his combat strategy is reduced to AttackAttackAttack. He returns, however, in chapter 71. The twist is not that he returns, but how: [[spoiler: he's resurrected and possessed by the absolutely enraged Phoenix, before going on a positively biblical rampage.]] As for why, it's revealed first that [[spoiler: Lily made a deal with the Phoenix to protect Harry,]] and as part of that [[spoiler: merged with Her, becoming the White Phoenix of the Crown.]]

* This happened to ''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'' a lot, as in in [[OnceAnEpisode every single episode]] during the silent shorts. During the half-hour episodes Æon tended to survive, with some partial exceptions: One episode where a copy of her kills the original (which was planned all along), another where she's trapped in a sea of paralytic fluid at the end (although the fluid could be neutralized), and another where she seems to die multiple times, but [[MindScrew nobody knows what the hell was literal in that episode anyway.]] [[spoiler: Explained somewhat in the video game.]]

This trope is when an episode ends with the main character appearing to have been killed. This is supposedly a very dramatic event, so writers typically save this one for late in a season. Problem is, while the TrueCompanions and the BigBad will think Our Hero Is Dead, [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt the audience isn't fooled]]. Contrary to [[ViewersAreMorons popular belief]], most viewers know that if the hero died, the story would be over. But even knowing the hero isn't as dead as he looks, it can still be shocking.

* In ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'', Keiichi dies in just about every arc. Though the emphasis on him as the "main character" isn't as big as deal as other shows. [[spoiler:Rika]] is the [[DecoyProtagonist true]] main character and also dies in about every arc.
