Added DiffLines:

'''Basic Trope''': There is a huge difference between "on the brink of death" and "dead"
* '''Straight''': Alice suffers major injuries during a battle. Bob stabilizes her wounds and then use healing magic to bring her back.
* '''Exaggerated''': all that was left of Alice was a head. After having healing magic used on her, Alice recovers completely in minutes.
* '''Downplayed''': Alice was badly wounded, but might have survived even without help.
* '''Justified''': The magic accelerates natural healing. A dead person has no natural healing to work on.
* '''Inverted''': Alice dies, and Bob resurrects her. If she had been only mostly dead he would have had to wait for her to die before doing so.
* '''Subverted''': Bob recovers Alice after she suffers major injuries. He then admits that he isn't powerful enough to bring her back from that close to death.
* '''Double Subverted''': He then fetches Charlie, who specializes more heavily in healing magic. He brings her back with no problem.
* '''Parodied''': ???
* '''Zig Zagged''': ???
* '''Averted''': ???
* '''Enforced''': The writers need to show that Alice was in serious danger but don't want her injured and out of the story for a long time.
* '''Lampshaded''': ???
* '''Invoked''': ???
* '''Exploited''': Don deliberately injures Alice to the brink of death during his getaway, knowing that Bob will have to stop to heal her before she dies.
* '''Defied''': Bob develops resurrection magic so that he can bring people back even if they do die.
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???
* '''Implied''': ???
* '''Deconstructed''': ???
* '''Reconstructed''': ???
* '''Played For Laughs''': ???
