* Speaking of videogames based upon ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', ''VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureThe7thStandUser'' will let you save anyone you have the highest FP with, and [[spoiler: this trope is taken UpToEleven in the "Everybody Lives" ending, where [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin everybody lives]].]]
