* On ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' the title character's mother, [[AllLovingHero Rose Quartz]], [[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence gave up her physical form]] [[DeathByChildbirth to give birth to him]]. The characters who knew her are all still in various stages of mourning, and her actions ([[spoiler:[[RebelLeader leading a resistance against her despotic homeworld]]]] and [[spoiler:[[BatmanGrabsAGun killing a member of the BigBadDuumvirate]]]]) have a large bearing on the plot of the show. Though there's some indications that she's OnlyMostlyDead--specifically, that she somehow [[{{Reincarnation}} still exists inside of]] [[LikeParentLikeChild Steven]].

She's still mentioned frequently, with the titular character and the audience slowly learning that her actions are what resulted in many of the series' plot points.

Averts WeHardlyKnewYe. VideoWills, ApocalypticLog, suicide notes, and mention by other characters on what he or she was like may help.
