* '''Double Subverted''': ...but they keep him alive enough to slink away into a remote laboratory, to simmer in his own hatred of humanity and work on upgrading himself. He eventually emerges not just better, stronger and faster, but with a grudge against humanity in general and his "killers" [[ItsPersonal in particular]].

* '''Enforced''': Given Lazarus' popularity and importance (not to mention [[MeaningfulName his name]], the fans [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt simply refuse to believe he's been]] KilledOffForReal. But since the writers had killed him off in the first place because they found him dull, they decide they have a good opportunity to bring him back in a barely-recognisable form.

* '''Zig Zagged''': Cyberneticisation is a last resort, pulled only on the dying specifically because it's such a crapshoot. Most people are killed, some reject their enhancements, some are turned into vegetables; even of the survivors, most are left feeble shadows of themselves, barely able to move. But every once in a while...
