* LoadBearingBoss: Erich von Leer in "Legend of the Holy Rose, Part 2". When von Leer is killed, he stumbles backwards into the entrance of the Temple of the Holy Rose, which proceeds to collapse on top of him, burying the temple. (Properly the collapse is the result of a secondary explosion caused by the FrickinLaserBeams that kill von Leer, and Mac speculates that the original designer of the temple intended for his work to be buried.)
