The death of any major character is dramatic, even if it's in a comedic context.
** Bob's family and friends are DrivenToSuicide [[ComicalOverreacting because Bob can't cook anything else]]. * '''Played For Drama''': Alice asks Bob to cook a meatloaf for a family dinner. Bob has never had to cook anything but hard-boiled eggs before, so despite his attempts to follow the recipe he was given, he sets the kitchen on fire. The fire burns Troperville to the ground, and [[KillEmAll every main character dies]] except Miriam, who was conveniently out of town. When she learns that all of her friends are dead, she suffers a severe case of SurvivorGuilt.
