'''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'''

The cast minus Asuka and Shinji
* Genre: AnyoneCanDie -- not good.
* Bodies? Disintegrated, which could be read [[NeverFoundTheBody Never Found]]-- optimistic.
* Characterization? Spans the spectrum, but the [[ContractualImmortality male and female lead]] are not among them.
* Finally, cause: CreatorBreakdown -- They're all doomed.
* Okay, seriously, average: 3. They're doomed.

Rei
* Cause: N/A
* Genre: AnyoneCanDie[=/=]KillEmAll. 4
* Body: Well we never see it die as such. It sort of just vanishes. So either a 1 or NA.
* Reaction: Seeing visions of her, meh. Difficult to say. I'll put down NA, as the main character doesn't seem to care.
* Characterization: Protagonist. 4
* How long ago: Over 5, so 4.
* Died and came back: I've lost count. 1. (to be fair, she did have a cloning system, but at the end she was at the power of a living god, so I'd put it as the same)
* 14/5 = 2.8. Deadish.

Actually got a different result for ''Evangelion.''
* Cause Of Death: depends on the character. On the whole, more RedemptionEqualsDeath than anything else.
* Genre: AnyoneCanDie--not good.
* Body: It's ''right there,'' '''alive''', just melted down into orange drink. LeftForDead.
* Reaction: not really applicable.
* Characterisation: ''everyone on the planet''. That strikes me as fairly regular. And the archvillain. And most of the protagonists. I'll give this one a 2.
* Average: 2.5.

'''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'''

Maes Hughes
* Cause: Shot by an impersonator... of his ''wife''. Hello thar, [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Bridge Drop!]] 4.
* Genre: AnyoneCanDie... although with alchemy... 3.5.
* Body: Funeral and all. 4.
* Reaction: [[HesDeadJim "Daddy's got work tomorrow!"]] 3.
* Characterization: Regular. 2.
* Time of death: Not this year, but not 5 yet. 2.5
* BackFromTheDead before? Nope. 4.
* Average: 4 + 3.5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 2.5 + 4 = 23/6 = 3.3 If he did come back, in the manga or anime, think Homunculus. However the anime's over and that's not what homunculi are in the manga, so he's pretty much screwed.

Maria Ross, from the manga
* Cause of death: Burnt to death by Col. Mustang while trying to escape from prison. Classic [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped A Bridge On Her]]. 4
* Genre: Going with the Hughes algorithm, AnyoneCanDie... although with alchemy... 3.5
* Body: Here's where it gets weird. If you're looking at it from the point where she dies, it's a DeaderThanDead barely recognizable corpse. After she's revealed not dead, it's a [[FakingTheDead fake corpse]]. Let's split it into 2 and 4, averaging it just doesn't make sense.
* Reaction: S{{hes Dead Jim}}, for good reason. 3
* Characterization: I'd say MauveShirt. 3
* When?: Same year. 2
* Died before?: Nope. 4.
* Average:4+3.5+4+3+3+2+4/7= about 3.4, which is worse then Hughes. After she's already not dead it becomes 4+3.5+'''2'''+3+3+2+4/7 and exactly 3. Better, but it still doesn't look good, which leads me to believe the SortingAlgorithmofDeadness is wroMMPH.
** I think it's just that the algorithm doesn't work when we already ''know'' it's a case of FakingTheDead.
*** Two problems with that: One, why is FakingTheDead listed as a 2 then, and two, before we knew she was FakingTheDead she was deader then Hughes.

Lust, same.
* Cause of death: Lit on fire. That's the traditional punishment for lust in Hell, so DeathByIrony. 4
* Genre: KilledOffForReal, 3
* Body: Vanished, which would technically be never found, but as we explicitly saw her PhilosophersStone get destroyed, DeaderThanDead. 4
* Reaction: ItsPersonal from Gluttony. 2.
* Characterization: Regular. 2
* When?: Around last year in-story. 3
* Died before?: Nope. 4.
* Average: 3.14. Pretty dead. Though, given that Ross survived...

Recently in the same: [[spoiler:Gluttony]]
* Cause of death: [[spoiler:Absorbed]]. DeathByIrony. 4
* Genre: KilledOffForReal as a whole, but given that he's [[spoiler:a homunculus and can be remade]], 2.5
* Body: Absorbed and/or disintegrated. Never found. 3
* Reaction: A resounding... nothing. No score.
* Characterization: Regular. 2
* When?: Same arc. 1
* Died before?: [[spoiler:Once]]. 3.
* Average: 2.41. Expect him back around the end of the manga, which should be next year.

Not long after that, [[spoiler:Kimblee]]
* Cause of death: [[spoiler:Absorbed, while Pride promises to let him see the outcome of the conflict]], DeathByIrony. 4
* Genre; KilledOffForReal. 3
* Body: Absorbed and/or disintegrated. Never found. 3
* Reaction: None. No score
* Characterization: Regular: 2.
* When? Same arc. 1
* Died before? No. 4.
* Average: 2.83. Unlikely to return, [[spoiler: at least not in his own body]].

[[spoiler:King Bradley/Wrath]]
* Cause of Death: Jumping (Fell off a bridge after letting go of Ling/Greed) - 1
* Genre: KilledOffForReal. 3
* Body: Falls into a moat and sinks while still he's still conscious. 3.
* Reaction: None. No score.
* Last Words: None. No Score
* Characterization: Regular antagonist. 2
* When? Same arc. 1
* Died before? Thought to have perished [[spoiler:in a train bombing]]. 3
* Average: 2.167. He's likely to come back soon.

[[spoiler:Buccaneer]]
* Cause of Death: HeroicSacrifice [[spoiler:to get in a hit on Wrath]]. 3
* Genre: KilledOffForReal. 3
* Body: Resting with the troops. 4
* Reaction: Montage of sorts. 4
* LastWords: FinalSpeech. 3
* Characterization: MauveShirt. 4
* When: Same Arc. 1
* Died before? No. 4
* Average: 3.25. Almost certainly dead.

[[spoiler:Pratically the whole of Amestris minus 7 people]]
* Cause of Death: Overkill [[spoiler: they had their own souls ripped by Father]]. 3
* Genre: KilledOffForReal. 3
* Body: [[spoiler: Right there]]. 4
* Reaction: HesDeadJim[[spoiler: , or rather, EverybodysDeadDave]]. 4
* LastWords: [[spoiler: KilledMidSentence and OhCrap]]. 3
* Characterization: [[spoiler: Almost everybody]]. Let's make it a 3
* When: Same Arc. 1
* Died before? No. 4
* Average: 3.375. [[spoiler: Let's hope the FirstLawOfResurrection take place!]] [[spoiler: They got their souls back in the next chapter]]

{{Anime/Pokemon}} Hunter J
* Cause of death: In a ship underwater that has been flooded, then explodes: Overkill Bridge Drop for sure and shew is pretty much the only person on the show who tries to flat out kill people so death is fitting, 4
* Genre: Pokemon is pretty light on the deaths, I can't recall anyone (else) that died in the anime (excluding characters who first appear as ghosts and die in their backstory). 1.5
* Body: Her glasses float to the surface, so never found, but they are oddly intact for, you know, being in an explosion. 2.5
* Last Words: Don't think there were any
* Reaction: No one notes it.
* Characterization: Recurring villain. 2
* Death: Same year: 2
* Died yet: nope 4:
* total 16 with 6 applied categories: 2.6. She deserves a few more points for being the only person on the show to to actually try to kill Ash and co. Most she would ever get is a [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Pokemon hunter K]].

Let’s do one for the characters that bit the bullet in the movies…

Dr. Fuji of ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie''
* Cause: Killed by his own creation, 4
* Genre: Ditto, 1.5
* Body: Most likely a bloody pulp after the lab explosion, 4
* Last Words: FamousLastWords / OhCrap; he has succeeded indeed, 3.5
* Reaction: Not much of one was given by Mewtwo, 4
* Characterization: He had some characterization, but not enough to pull him out of MauveShirt territory, 4
* When: At least a decade ago for viewers, but given that Ash is still ten years of age, less time may have passed in-universe, 3
* Died Yet: Nope, 4
* 28/7 = 3.5. This doc's a goner.

Latios of ''Anime/PokemonHeroes''
* Cause: Sacrificed himself to save Alto Mare, 3
* Genre: See above, 1.5
* Body: We seen him drown, but his spirit now resides in the new Soul Dew, which is essentially a SoulJar, 2
* Last Words: Probably along the lines of, “Fly you fools!”, 2
* Reaction: He was given what’s more or less a funeral and montage thanks to his sight seeing with his sister, 4
* Characterization: One of the legendary co-stars in the film, and is a fairly popular legendary, but not necessary an EnsembleDarkhorse, 2
* When: See the above, 3
* Died Yet: Nope, 4
* 21.5 / 8 = 2.69 The door is open to the possibility that the Latios in the 18th movie will be in fact the Guardian of Alto Mare, but the chance isn't too big.

[[spoiler:Teeki]] from ''Manga/MuhyoAndRoji''

The cast minus Asuka and Shinji
summer's most murder-tastic anime definitely needs a page here.

For fun, let's start with Eren Jaegar's near the beginning of the story

* Cause Of Death: depends
'''Body Found''': Well, on the character. On the whole, more RedemptionEqualsDeath than anything else.
one hand his body was never found, but that's because he was ''swallowed by a Titan.'' Let's go for 3, averaging NeverFoundTheBody and ChunkySalsaRule because of all those lost limbs.
* Genre: AnyoneCanDie--not good.
* Body: It's ''right there,'' '''alive''', just melted down into orange drink. LeftForDead.
* Reaction: not
'''Reaction''': [[spoiler: Armin]] gets a really applicable.

Lust, same.

around the end of the manga, which should be next year.

'''Last Words''': [[spoiler: It prioritized one eye to accelerate the healing! Is that even possible?]] Pretty much a lengthier OhCrap. 4.
* Body: Falls into '''Characterization''': MauveShirt, at that point. She'd been around for a moat bit, but we didn't know as much about her as we did, say, the 104s. 4.
* '''When Did They Die?''': The manga has moved on enough that this qualifies for a 2.
* '''Died

** RESULT: 3.6 [[spoiler: Wow. Petra's...really, really dead.]]

Okay, okay, last one - Carla Jaegar!
* '''Cause Of Death''': StuffedIntoTheFridge in the first episode. Her death exists to cause the protagonist pain. 4.
* '''Audience Expectation''': Hers is the first death in the series, but by now we know we should expect AnyoneCanDie. 4.
* '''Body Found''': Hm...I'm actually going to go with 4 here, because not only does she get eaten by a Titan, but the manga pretty clearly shows the Titan biting clean through her legs on the way down.
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler: Eren]] has enough montage-flashbacks of her to qualify for a 4.
* '''Last Words''': Does "Please come back!" count as an OhCrap? 4.
* '''Characterization''': Loved one. 4.
* '''When Did They Die?''': Approximately 5 years before the main arc.
3.
* Reaction: None. No score.
* Last Words: None. No Score
* Characterization: Regular antagonist. 2
* When? Same arc. 1
* Died before? Thought
'''Died and Came Back?''': No. 4.

* Audience Expectation: AnyoneCanDie - 4
* Body Found?: Mostly just LeftForDead, or Never Found - 2, or ''maybe'' a 2.5
* Reaction: Closest reaction listed is HesDeadJim - 3
* Last Words: [[spoiler: [[KilledMidSentence "You won't shoot-"]]]] - 4
* Characterization: [[spoiler: MauveShirt[=/=]RedShirt]] - 4
* When did they die?: Same arc, so 1
* "Died" and came back?: Nope - 4
* Average: 3.25. Pretty damn dead. [[WildMassGuessing Who knows]], maybe [[spoiler: he ''did'' wear a bullet-proof vest after all]]. But given that this is ''Death Note''...

----

Something to twist the algorithm a bit, because it's funny. Let's test [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Sousuke Aizen]]'s first death, avaliating the circumstances presented at the moment:

'''Sousuke Aizen'''
* Cause of Death: No One Could Survive That - 2
* Genre: At the time, Killed Off For Real (it developed to Death Is Cheap in the Hueco Mundo Arc) - 3
* Reaction: He's Dead Jim (his deadness was diagnosed) - 3
* Body: Technically not buried, but surely dead, according to all diagnosis and the HUGE SPLATTER OF BLOOD - 4
* Characterization Protagonist - He wasn't revealed to be a villain until then; he was just a C-List by then, for sure. 3.
* Died: Same arc – 1
* Previous Death - Technically, he's ''already'' dead... 3.
* Average: 19/7 = 2.71. Pretty high for someone that clearly faked his death, that's how so many people were surprised when he returned and made TheReveal.

And let's see how one of his later deaths match up. Specifically, [[spoiler:when he was blown up by Urahara's little trick]].

'''Sousuke Aizen'''
* Cause of Death: No One Could Survive That - 2
* Genre: Death Is Cheap - 1
* Reaction: Oh Crap - 4
* Body: Left for Dead - 1
* Characterization: Archvillain - 1






Here's an analysis for [[spoiler:Harribel]], since a lot of people have a hard time accepting her defeat (considering her opponent)

Because ''someone'' had to try it, [[spoiler:Mu La Flaga]] from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED''

Because ''someone''

[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Code Geass'']]

Shirley
* Cause of death: Bridge drop. 4
* Genre: AnyoneCanDie. 4. Not looking good here...
* Body found: Yup. The protagonist watched her die. 4
* Reaction: No actual montage so we have to keep it at HesDeadJim. 3
* Characterisation: ''Just'' got bumped up to full-fledged LovedOne. 4
* When: Arc changed, so 2 at least. 4 if you count the series ending without her comming back as equivalent to her death having occured in the series finale.
* Average... 23/6 = 3.8. Yup, we ain't seeing her again.
* Additionally, given that this series
had character designs by CLAMP, some have suggested to try add a CLAMP Really Dead Factor for an additional 4. In this case, she scored '''4''' on average (just to justify the intro text).

This is another test

Nunnally
* Died by: Nuke, but we don't actually see the death; this is either [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Bridge Drop]] or NoOneCouldSurviveThat. I'll go with the latter for 2.
* Genre: Going by the Shirley example, 4, though if you count Jeremiah, [[spoiler: Charles, and marianne,]] you could make a case for KilledOffForReal. I'll go with that, 3
* Body: NeverFoundTheBody, though not for lack of trying. 3.
* Reaction: "Nii-san, she's dead..." 3.
* Characterization: Loved One, 4.
* When: Same Arc - 1, though the arc changed since then with a month timeskip, so I'll go with 2.
* Died and come back: No. Kidnapped once, but they never claimed her to be dead. 4
* Add them together, 21. All right, divide by the number of applicable rows, which is 7. It ends up as 3. All things considered, her return was a surprise, although pretty much everyone expected
it, [[spoiler:Mu La Flaga]] from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED''
it was still a HolyShit moment.

One more, this time [[DeathOfTheAuthor defying]] WordOfGod: Lelouch
* Cause of Death: Redemption/Sacrifice--3.
* Genre: I'm going to have to go with 2, considering how much sleight of hand there was with [[spoiler:nuked people]], among others (how did [[spoiler:Suzaku]] survive [[spoiler:his fight with Kallen]], again? Also, [[spoiler:Mao, Charles, Marianne]]). Plus, [[spoiler:C's World and Geass offer enough loopholes for a technically-dead guy to still have a major role]].
* Body found: While we, as viewers, don't see a burial or anything, considering the circumstances ([[spoiler:with literally the entire world watching and, later on, sure that he's dead]]) it's likely a 4, though the fact that the most likely scenario of him surviving [[spoiler:would leave a body behind until he BackFromTheDead]] gives a bit of wiggle room between 3 and 4.
* Reaction: Montage, although in this case [[spoiler:that's kind of watering the EpilepticTrees]], but I'll still call that a 4. For a more lenient interpretation, giving the aforementioned WMG, there's also wiggle room here between 3 and 4.
* Characterization: [[spoiler:"Protagonist or Archvillain"? Yes.]] 1.
* When did they die: Died in the series finale, so 4. In the case of a hypothetical third season, the postlogue has a two month timeskip, so, same year. 2 at most.
* Died and come back: IIRC, never. 4
* Total: Given that it was the series finale, 22/7 = 3.14, ie, probably dead. If you figure based on a hypothetical third season or the wiggle room given by the most likely scenario of his return, 20/7 = 2.86 or 19/7 = 2.71, or even 18/7 if you count both, leading to a 2.57, and a solid ''maybe'', ignoring the WordOfGod. might. If you figure without including "time since death:" 18/6 = 3 (...exactly the same as the previous entry. Who came back. I swear I didn't do that on purpose).

So everyone who says [[spoiler:CC was talking to him in the last episode]] has a leg to stand on, though I'm ambivalent over whether or not I like this.

[[folder:''Dangan Ronpa'']]

How about the two biggest recipients of HesJustHiding in ''Anime/DanganRonpa3''?

Chiaki Nanami
* '''Cause of Death''': Tortured to death. 2.
* '''Audience Expectation''': Generally AnyoneCanDie, but the anime has employed its share of {{Disney Death}}s. Averages out to a 3.
* '''Body found?''': Technically found by Izuru, but she was still alive at the time. We never actually see what happens to it after that. 2.
* '''Reaction''': Izuru decides ItsPersonal. 2
* '''Last words''': Sobbing about how she doesn't want to die. 3.
* '''Characterization''': One of the main characters. 1.
* '''Died and came back?''': Nope. 4
* '''Result:''' 17/7 = 2.42.
It's a HeroicSacrifice, okay everyone, she's not really gone.

Juzo Sakukura
* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice + RedemptionEqualsDeath. 3.
* '''Audience Expectation''': See above. 3.
* '''Body found?''': Found
but given that it involved not buried. 3.
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler:Munakata]] weeps over his body. 3.
* '''Last words''': Gives
a friggin' ''antimatter cannon'', big internal heroic monologue about how he wants to save [[spoiler:Munakata]]. 3.
* '''Characterization''': Regular semi-antagonist. 2.
* '''Died and came back?''': He was faked out once before, so yeah. 3.
* '''Result:''' 20/7 = 2.85. There's a chance, but
it's probably also NoOneCouldSurviveThat a slim one.

For curiosity's sake, let's check the odds of someone who ''did'' come back:

Kyoko Kirigiri
* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice 3.
* '''Audience Expectation''': See above. 3.
* '''Body found?''': They literally wake up and find it right there, but left it behind shortly after. 3
* '''Reaction''': Huge amount of weeping, plus several montage-esque flashbacks. 4.
* '''Last words''': Encouraging speech and AlwaysWithYou moment. 3.
* '''Characterization''': Main character. 1.
* '''Died and came back?''': Nada. 4.
* '''Result:''' 21/7 = solid 3. Well hey, her odds were actually ''worse'' than the above and she came back, so I guess anything's possible.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Death Note'']]

Lets test this out on none other than...

L Lawliet.
* Cause of death: BridgeDrop
- 4
* Genre: [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal turned into AnyoneCanDie by this]] - 3.5
* Body Found: right there - 4
* Reaction: [[spoiler:Montage - 4]]
* Last words: KilledMidSentence - 4
* Characterization: [[spoiler:Protagonist, sort of - 1]]
* When: Same arc - 1
* Died and come back: not in Death Note - 4
* Average (spoiler tagged to avoid revealing the character via math): [[spoiler:25.5/8 = 3.18. Only dying in sight and being Light's main enemy prevents him from matching the Code Geass character who scored a 4.]]

Film version of L's real death.
* Cause of death: [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice - 3]]
* Genre: [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal, would have turned into flat out AnyoneCanDie but he busted Light and ended the Kira case before he died]] - 3.5
* Body Found: [[spoiler:Soichiro left L to his death, albeit on his behest, and then there are no more scenes that even mention him, so LeftForDead - 1]]
* Reaction: [[spoiler:none given - 1]]
* Last Words: FamousLastWords, sort of - 3
* Characterization: [[spoiler:Protagonist, sort of - 1]]
* When: Same arc - 1
* Died and come back: [[spoiler:he faked his death--the one that really did happen in the manga/anime--to get Light busted - 3]]
* Average (again, spoiler tagged to avoid revealing the character via math): [[spoiler:16.5/8 =
2.506. Pretty good for a guy who definitely must have died.]]

And Light Yagami in the manga, anime, and film.
* Cause of death: Bridge Drop and DeathByIrony ([[spoiler:He'd lost, but his death wasn't guaranteed to be part of it]]) - 4



* Body Found?: Never Found - 3
* Reaction: ItsPersonal [[spoiler:Murrue is PISSED]] - 2
* Characterization: I'm going to call him a regular - 2
* When did they die?: 2 years between ''SEED'' and ''Destiny'' - 2.5
* "Died" and come back?: Not yet - 4
* Average: 20/7 = 2.86. Not the best prognosis, but Back Next Season isn't unrealistic, and [[spoiler:as of Destiny, he's definitely back.]]

----

While hardly anyone ever dies in Manga/OnePiece, here's an analysis on Kuina's death to see if she somehow survived and grew up to be Tashigi.
* Cause of Death: Bridge Drop (falls down the stairs) - 4
* Genre: Typically DeathIsCheap, but flashbacks are KilledOffForReal - 3
* Body: Shown in the manga, but not in the anime - 4
* Characterization: [[DisposableWoman Loved One]] - 4
* Reaction: HesDeadJim - 3
* Died: 5-10+ Years Ago - 4
* Previous Death: No - 4
* Average: 3.73. Dead and buried, and NOT Tashigi.
** Unless, of course, Oda deliberately wrote it so that it's only what he WANTS us to think. Considering the series' ever-growing HolyShitQuotient...until he reveals what the deal with Tashigi is, it's impossible to really know what exactly is going on.

Now here's a comparsion between Bellemere's death in 4kids and the original
* Cause of Death: HeroicSacrifice - 3
* Genre: KilledOffForReal for flashbacks in the original, Death is Cheap in 4kids - 3, 1
* Body: Shown in the anime, Left For Dead in 4kids (they don't take her away) - 4, 1
* Characterization: [[DeathByOriginStory Loved One]] - 4
* Reaction: Montage in original, - 4
* Died: 5-10+ years ago - 4
* Previous Death: No - 4
* Average: 3.73 in the original, which all but precludes her coming back. In the 4kids version, she gets a 3, which is fairly tall odds against her return.

Gin
* Cause of Death: HeroicSacrifice (gives Luffy his gas mask) - 3
* Genre: Death Is Cheap - 1
* Body: LeftForDead (sails off fatally poisoned)- 1
* Reaction: None
* Characterization: CListFodder - 3
* Died: Probably around a year ago, since it's not in the same arc- 2
* Previous Death: No - 4
* Average: 2.33. He could return, as some characters from East Blue already have.

Jaguar D. Saul
* Cause of Death: HeroicSacrifice (dies defending a young Robin) - 3
* Genre: KilledOffForReal in Flashbacks -3
* Body: Frozen - 2
* Reaction: Shock - 2
* Characterization: LovedOne - 4
* Died: Over 20 years ago- 4
* Previous Death: No - 4
* Average: 3.14. Despite the potential for ambiguity in how he died, he won't likely come back.

Mr. 9 and Miss Monday
* Cause of Death: HeroicSacrifice (buying time for Vivi to escape) - 3
* Genre: DeathIsCheap - 1
* Body: None shown - 3
* Characterization: MauveShirt (not much stronger or more important to Baroque Works than the [[Mook Billions]]) -4
* Reaction: Shock - 2
* Died: Last year - 2
* Previous Death: No - 4
* Average: 2.42. While their score isn't that bad, they aren't likely to come back after this long.
* ( In the newest chapter cover their ALIVE AND MARRIED)

And just for fun, let's see how [[DemBones Brook]] scores.
* [[HowToKillACharacter Cause Of Death]]: NoOneCouldSurviveThat - Technically he didn't. - 2
* Genre: KilledOffForReal or DeathIsCheap - This is the main thing. Brook died in a flashback, but he ate a Devil's Fruit that brought him back to life. - 3/1
* Body: DeaderThanDead or LeftForDead - You can't get much deader than a skeleton, but he IS alive now. - 4/1
* Characterization: Protagonist - He's a Straw Hat now. - 1
* Reaction: Montage or [[WakingUpAtTheMorgue Waking Up]] - He died in a flashback, but he pretty much woke back up where his body was left. - 4/1
* Died: Last Year - A year had gone by the time his soul got back to his body. - 2
* Previous Death: Once, but got better- Devil's Fruit brught him back. - 3
* Average: Brook's score is a bit of a doozy, depending on how you're working the score. If you count the fact that the man died in a flashback with a montage and that he's deader than dead, you're going to get '2.71'. If you go by the fact that death is cheap and he woke up on the boat where he had been left, you get '1.57'. This would probably best handled by averaging those scores and putting it at '2.14'. Being that he's currently alive, it make this moot, but you gotta wonder.

And more recently, [[spoiler:Mr. 2]], comparing his most recent "death" and his previous one
* Cause of Death: HeroicSacrifice ( Both times, [[spoiler:stayed behind to help Luffy and his allies escape]]) 3
* Genre : DeathIsCheap (It's not a flashback) - 1
* Body: LeftForDead - Fighting doomed battles and dies out of sight of the protagonists - 1
* LastWords: FinalSpeech - 3
* Reaction: Tearful farewell, acknowledging his loss - 3
* Characterization: Recurring character - 3
* Died: Last year for previous death, same arc for this death - 2, 1
* Previous Death: Assumed to have died once before - 3, 4 in his original "death"
* Average: 2.25 this time, 2.5 the previous time. He could survive this time, too, given how similar the circumstances are.

Now here's an interesting experiment to see how likely it is for Oda to kill off a character in the present timeline.

Little Oars Junior
* Cause of Death: HeroicSacrifice - 3
* Genre: DeathIsCheap - 1
* Body: Troops are crossing over it - 4
* LastWords: Final Speech - 3
* Reaction: ItsPersonal - 3
* Characterization: MauveShirt - 4.
* Died: Current arc - 1
* Previous Death: None - 4.
* Average: 2.875. Could very well be dead.

A particularly spoilerrific case, let's see if this will stick:

[[spoiler: Portgas D. Ace]]
* Cause of Death: HeroicSacrifice ([[spoiler: took a fatal blow meant for Luffy]]) - 3
* Genre: DeathIsCheap - 1
* Body: lying there [[spoiler: with a big hole through most of his torso]] - 4
* LastWords: Final Speech - 3
* Reaction: ReallyDeadMontage - 4
* Characterization: Loved One ([[spoiler: protagonist's (adopted) brother]]) - 4
* Died: current arc - 1
* Previous Death: none - 4
* Average: 24/8 = 3. I doubt even Ivankov could be able to heal his injuries; unlike Pell, this is likely to be permanent.

[[spoiler: Whitebeard]]
* Cause of Death: Overkill ([[spoiler:shot and stabbed repeatedly]]), - 4
* Genre: DeathIsCheap - 1, although this might break the trend.
* Body: Present, [[spoiler:standing up]] - 4
* LastWords Final Speech - 3
* Reaction: ReallyDeadMontage - 4
* Characterization: Recurring character - 3
* Died: current arc- 1
* Previous death: none - 4
* Average: 24/8 = 3. About as dead as [[spoiler:Luffy's brother]].

Hey, let's try it for Pell.
* Cause of Death: Heroic Sacrific. 3
* Genre: DeathIsCheap. 1
* Body: Supposedly disentigrated by bomb, never found. 3
* LastWords: Final Speech. 3
* Reaction: Sort of a montage, so 3.
* Characterization: Loved one (not romantic but pretty important to Vivi). 4
* Died: Sort of the same arc, though it was pretty much after it ended so... 1.5.
* Previous death: None. 4
* Average: 22.5/8 = 2.8. So he beat [[spoiler:Ace and Whitebeard]] by about .2 points. Possible explanation for why he lived and they didn't?

Vice-Admiral Vergo
* Cause of Death: Crippled, then left in a building that's about to blow up. NoOneCouldSurviveThat - 2
* Genre: DeathIsCheap - 1
* Body: LeftForDead - 1
* Characterization: Prominent ArcVillain - 3
* Last Words: None really, but a confident smile that Doflamingo would avenge him. Closest to a 3.
* Reaction: None; no score
* Died: Same arc - 1
* Previous Death: No - 4
* Average: 2.14. Most likely made it out (somehow).

Monet
* Cause of Death: Remotely stabbed in the heart - 2
* Genre: DeathIsCheap - 1
* Body: LeftForDead - 1
* Characterization: Prominent ArcVillain - 3
* Last Words: Closest to "Carry on men". - 3.
* Reaction: None; no score
* Died: Same arc - 1
* Previous Death: No - 4
* Average: 2.14. Also most likely alive..

Here's some cases in Yu Yu Hakusho that shows some values are more important than others.

'''[[spoiler:Genkai's first death]]'''
* Cause of Death: Quasi-Heroic Sacrifice, [[spoiler:died fighting Toguro]], although technically StuffedIntoTheFridge - 3
* Genre: BackFromTheDead - 1

to:

* Body Found?: Never Found Body? : Yes - 3
* Reaction: ItsPersonal [[spoiler:Murrue is PISSED]] - 2
* Characterization: I'm going to call him a regular - 2

* Average: 20/7 = 2.86. Not the best prognosis, but Back Next Season isn't unrealistic, and [[spoiler:as of Destiny, he's definitely back.]]

Here's some cases in Yu Yu Hakusho that shows some values are more important than others.

'''[[spoiler:Genkai's first death]]'''
* Cause of Death: Quasi-Heroic Sacrifice, [[spoiler:died fighting Toguro]], although technically StuffedIntoTheFridge - 3
* Genre: BackFromTheDead - 1
4



* Body: Found, handed over to Koenma - 4

to:

* Body: Last words: [[spoiler:in manga and anime, OhCrap, albeit different - 4; in film, FinalSpeech - 3]]
* Characterization : [[spoiler:VillainProtagonist - 1]]
* When- SeriesFinale - 4
* Died and come back: No - 4
* Average: [[spoiler: 29/8 = 3.625 in manga/anime, 28/8 = 3.5 in film. No, he is not coming back.]]

Mello.
* Cause of Death: [[spoiler:Sacrifice, 3]]
* Audience Expectation: AnyoneCanDie, 4
* Body Found?: Never
Found, handed 2
* Reaction: The closest listed reaction is probably HesDeadJim, 3
* Last Words: [[spoiler:Unknown, but his plan was MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning. 1]]
* Characterization: Recurring Character or Regular, 2.5
* When did they die?: Same arc, 1
* “Died” and come back?: Not yet, 4
* Average: 2.562. Odds aren't too bad. Too bad for him he's [[KilledOffForReal still a]] Death Note [[KilledOffForReal character]].

Matt.
* Cause of Death: [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Overkill]] - 4
* Audience Expectation: AnyoneCanDie - 4
* Body Found?: Mostly just LeftForDead, or Never Found - 2, or ''maybe'' a 2.5
* Reaction: Closest reaction listed is HesDeadJim - 3
* Last Words: [[spoiler: [[KilledMidSentence "You won't shoot-"]]]] - 4
* Characterization: [[spoiler: MauveShirt[=/=]RedShirt]] - 4
* When did they die?: Same arc, so 1
* "Died" and came back?: Nope - 4
* Average: 3.25. Pretty damn dead. [[WildMassGuessing Who knows]], maybe [[spoiler: he ''did'' wear a bullet-proof vest after all]]. But given that this is ''Death Note''...

[[folder:''Detective Conan'']]

Shuichi Akai
* Cause: HeroicSacrifice. 3.
* Genre: While someone dies in most episodes, this never happens to recurring characters, so I'm going with NobodyCanDie. 1.
* The Body: While they found a body, the identification was somewhat shady and there were apparently some strange things with the body. 3.
* Reaction: Between Jodie's tears and the symbolism of being unable to reach him by phone, 3.
* Last Words: The words were direct more at Rena than Akai, which may lower the number? 3.
* Characterization: RecurringCharacter. 3.
* When did he die: 2007, so 3.
* Come Back?: 4.
* Average: 23/8 = 2.875

For being a relaxing SliceOfLife show with ScienceFiction to steer the plot, it got [[CerebusSyndrome pretty damn serious]] in the last few episodes. Can the wonders of the aliens' technology save these two particular characters?

First Death: ''Sho Aizawa''
* '''Cause of Death''': DroppedABridgeOnHim. 4
* '''Audience Expectation''': It '''was''' the first death, and there was no {{Foreshadowing}} either. N/A.
* '''Body Found''': Yes, a MeaningfulFuneral was held in his honor. 4
* '''Reaction''': One character in particular went into a HeroicBSOD for ''weeks''
over this. 4
* '''Last Words''': "[[FamousLastWords I'll see you tommorow]]!" even echoes in said character's mind. 3
* '''Characterization''': RecurringCharacter. 3
* '''When (s)he died''': Same year. 2
* '''Died and come back''': Nope. 4
* RESULT: 24/7 = 3.43. '''''Ouch'''''! With this death, InfantImmortality clearly [[AvertedTrope does not apply]]
to Koenma this show. He's among the [[DeaderThanDead the most dead]] characters to die within a SliceOfLife narrative.

Second Death: ''Hikaru Shiina''
* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice by HeroicRROD. 3
* '''Audience Expectation''': This time, we ''do have'' plenty of {{Foreshadowing}}. Sadly, all signs point to KilledOffForReal. 3
* '''Body Found''': [[spoiler: Disintegrated. 4]]
* '''Reaction''': HesDeadJim. 3
* '''Last Words''': FinalSpeech along with GoOutWithASmile. 3
* '''Characterization''' [[spoiler: Protagonist. 1]]
* '''When (s)he died''': GrandFinale. 4
* '''Died and come back''': Nope. 4
* RESULT: 25/8 = 3.125. '''Highly''' unlikely candidate for revival.

In short, ''do not'' let this fluffy show fool you. These aliens are not miracle workers like many any other shows of its genre would have you think.

[[folder:''From the New World'']]

Episode 10 featured the dramatic farewell and death for Shun. Given that he plays such a big role for Group One and that he [[spoiler:always loved Saki]], though, one has to question whether he simply disappeared or really died. Let's find out
* '''Cause of death''': Swallowed up by the Earth before being [[RetGone retgoned]] from people's memories by the Ethics Committee. I say 4.
* '''Audience expectation''': Based on a dark YA novel by Yusuke Kishi, the series makes it crystal clear that AnyoneCanDie. 4.
* '''Body found?''': Saki last saw [[spoiler:Shun]] getting swallowed up into the Earth. The others in Kamisu 66, however, can't find his body. It's probably a 3 (fulfills categories for both a 4 and a 2, so I averaged them).
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler: [[SayMyName "SHUN!!!"]]]]. Let's say it's a 3.
* '''Last words''': [[FamousLastWords "Saki, I have always loved you. Goodbye..."]] 3.
* '''Characterization''': At that point, a regular. He was, however, a LoveInterest for Saki. An average of 3.
* '''When did they die?''': Took place when Saki was 14 years old. Since the narrator [[spoiler:aka the grown-up Saki]] is a 36 year old woman at the time, however, it's over 22 years in real time. Let's go with 4.
* '''"Died" and came back?''': Has not reappeared since... 4.
* '''Average''': 28/8 equals '''3.5.''' Hate to break the news to you Saki, but [[spoiler:Shun]] has been KilledOffForReal.

[[folder:''Full Metal Panic!!'']]

Kurz Weber, following the events of the [[LightNovels light novel]] ''Approaching Nick of Time''.
* Cause of Death: NoOneCouldSurviveThat, albeit with considerable detail spent describing the injuries inflicted by the "that" in question, and some shades of a HeroicSacrifice
- 42.5
* Genre: The only characters KilledOffForReal thus far have been {{Mauve Shirt}}s, and several regulars have had {{Disney Death}}s, so... - 2
* Body Found?: Never Found, as the survivors were forced to withdraw without retrieving it - 3
* Reaction: [[HesDeadJim He's Dead, Jim]] - 3



* Died: Same Arc - 1
* Previous Death: No - 4
* Average: 2.71. Initially unlikely to come back [[spoiler:but did]]

'''[[spoiler:Genkai's second death]]'''
* Cause of Death: Natural causes, somewhat sudden Bridge Drop, since she was alive and well in the previous chapters - 4
* Genre: BackFromTheDead - 1.
* Reaction: Funeral seen some time later - 4.
* Body: Not applicable, we didn't see her die
* Characterization: Regular - 2
* Died: 10+ Years Ago - 4
* Previous Death: Yes. 3
* Average: 3. Unlikely to come back if Yu Yu Hakusho gets a sequel series.

'''Yusuke'''
* Cause of Death: Bridge Drop/Failed Heroic Sacrifice - 3.5
* Genre: BackFromTheDead - 1
* Reaction: Entire episode about death - 4
* Body: Yes - 4
* Characterization: Protagonist, which is lampshaded - 1
* Died: ''First episode'' - 1
* Previous Death: No - 4
* Average: 18.5/7 = 2.64.

'''Yusuke (second time)'''

* Characterization Protagonist - 1

Recent chapters of the ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' manga. OK, give me a minute:

[[spoiler:Orochimaru]]
* Cause of Death: Bridged dropped ''twice'' - 4

to:

* Died: When did they die?: Same Arc year - 2
* "Died" and come back?: Had a NoOneCouldSurviveThat back in the first story arc and came out of it injured but alive - 3
* Average: 17.5/7 = 2.5. Back Next Novel, we can only hope.
** [[spoiler:Not quite, but reports are he makes a comeback in the final novel, ''Always Stand By Me.'']]

[[folder:''Fullmetal Alchemist'']]

Maes Hughes
* Cause: Shot by an impersonator... of his ''wife''. Hello thar, [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Bridge Drop!]] 4.
* Genre: AnyoneCanDie... although with alchemy... 3.5.
* Body: Funeral and all. 4.
* Reaction: [[HesDeadJim "Daddy's got work tomorrow!"]] 3.
* Characterization: Regular. 2.
* Time of death: Not this year, but not 5 yet. 2.5
* BackFromTheDead before? Nope. 4.
* Average: 4 + 3.5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 2.5 + 4 = 23/6 = 3.3 If he did come back, in the manga or anime, think Homunculus. However the anime's over and that's not what homunculi are in the manga, so he's pretty much screwed.

Maria Ross, from the manga
* Cause of death: Burnt to death by Col. Mustang while trying to escape from prison. Classic [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped A Bridge On Her]]. 4
* Genre: Going with the Hughes algorithm, AnyoneCanDie... although with alchemy... 3.5
* Body: Here's where it gets weird. If you're looking at it from the point where she dies, it's a DeaderThanDead barely recognizable corpse. After she's revealed not dead, it's a [[FakingTheDead fake corpse]]. Let's split it into 2 and 4, averaging it just doesn't make sense.
* Reaction: S{{hes Dead Jim}}, for good reason. 3
* Characterization: I'd say MauveShirt. 3
* When?: Same year. 2
* Died before?: Nope. 4.
* Average:4+3.5+4+3+3+2+4/7= about 3.4, which is worse then Hughes. After she's already not dead it becomes 4+3.5+'''2'''+3+3+2+4/7 and exactly 3. Better, but it still doesn't look good, which leads me to believe the SortingAlgorithmofDeadness is wroMMPH.
** I think it's just that the algorithm doesn't work when we already ''know'' it's a case of FakingTheDead.
*** Two problems with that: One, why is FakingTheDead listed as a 2 then, and two, before we knew she was FakingTheDead she was deader then Hughes.

Lust, same.
* Cause of death: Lit on fire. That's the traditional punishment for lust in Hell, so DeathByIrony. 4
* Genre: KilledOffForReal, 3
* Body: Vanished, which would technically be never found, but as we explicitly saw her PhilosophersStone get destroyed, DeaderThanDead. 4
* Reaction: ItsPersonal from Gluttony. 2.
* Characterization: Regular. 2
* When?: Around last year in-story. 3
* Died before?: Nope. 4.
* Average: 3.14. Pretty dead. Though, given that Ross survived...

Recently in the same: Gluttony.
* Cause of death: [[spoiler:Absorbed]]. DeathByIrony. 4
* Genre: KilledOffForReal as a whole, but given that he's [[spoiler:a homunculus and can be remade]], 2.5
* Body: Absorbed and/or disintegrated. Never found. 3
* Reaction: A resounding... nothing. No score.
* Characterization: Regular. 2
* When?: Same arc.
1
* Previous Death: No - 4
Died before?: [[spoiler:Once]]. 3.
* Average: 2.71. Initially unlikely to come 41. Expect him back [[spoiler:but did]]

'''[[spoiler:Genkai's second death]]'''
around the end of the manga, which should be next year.

Not long after that, Kimblee.
* Cause of Death: Natural causes, somewhat sudden Bridge Drop, since she was alive and well in death: [[spoiler:Absorbed, while Pride promises to let him see the previous chapters - outcome of the conflict]], DeathByIrony. 4
* Genre: BackFromTheDead - 1.
* Reaction: Funeral seen some time later - 4.

* Characterization: Regular antagonist. 2
* When? Same arc. 1

[[spoiler:Shirley]] in ''Anime/CodeGeass''
* Cause of death: Bridge drop. 4
* Genre: AnyoneCanDie. 4. Not looking good here...
* Body found: Yup. The protagonist watched her die. 4
* Reaction: No actual montage so we have to keep it at HesDeadJim. 3
* Characterisation: ''Just'' got bumped up to full-fledged LovedOne. 4
* When: Arc changed, so 2 at least. 4 if you count the series ending without her comming back as equivalent to her death having occured in the series finale.
* Average... 23/6 = 3.8. Yup, we ain't seeing her again.
* Additionally, given that this series had character designs by CLAMP, some have suggested to add a CLAMP Really Dead Factor for an additional 4. In this case, she scored '''4''' on average (just to justify the intro text).

This is another test:
[[spoiler: Nunnally]], ''Anime/CodeGeass''
* Died by: Nuke, but we don't actually see the death; this is either [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Bridge Drop]] or NoOneCouldSurviveThat. I'll go with the latter for 2.
* Genre: Going by the Shirley example, 4, though if you count Jeremiah, [[spoiler: Charles, and marianne,]] you could make a case for KilledOffForReal. I'll go with that, 3
* Body: NeverFoundTheBody, though not for lack of trying. 3.
* Reaction: "Nii-san, she's dead..." 3.
* Characterization: Loved One, 4.
* When: Same Arc - 1, though the arc changed since then with a month timeskip, so I'll go with 2.
* Died and come back: No. Kidnapped once, but they never claimed her to be dead. 4
* Add them together, 21. All right, divide by the number of applicable rows, which is 7. It ends up as 3. All things considered, her return was a surprise, although pretty much everyone expected it, it was still a HolyShit moment.

One more ''Anime/CodeGeass'', this time [[DeathOfTheAuthor defying]] WordOfGod: [[spoiler:Lelouch]]
* Cause of Death: Redemption/Sacrifice--3.
* Genre: I'm going to have to go with 2, considering how much sleight of hand there was with [[spoiler:nuked people]], among others (how did [[spoiler:Suzaku]] survive [[spoiler:his fight with Kallen]], again? Also, [[spoiler:Mao, Charles, Marianne]]). Plus, [[spoiler:C's World and Geass offer enough loopholes for a technically-dead guy to still have a major role]].
* Body found: While we, as viewers, don't see a burial or anything, considering the circumstances ([[spoiler:with literally the entire world watching and, later on, sure that he's dead]]) it's likely a 4, though the fact that the most likely scenario of him surviving [[spoiler:would leave a body behind until he BackFromTheDead]] gives a bit of wiggle room between 3 and 4.
* Reaction: Montage, although in this case [[spoiler:that's kind of watering the EpilepticTrees]], but I'll still call that a 4. For a more lenient interpretation, giving the aforementioned WMG, there's also wiggle room here between 3 and 4.
* Characterization: [[spoiler:"Protagonist or Archvillain"? Yes.]] 1.
* When did they die: Died in the series finale, so 4. In the case of a hypothetical third season, the postlogue has a two month timeskip, so, same year. 2 at most.
* Died and come back: IIRC, never. 4
* Total: Given that it was the series finale, 22/7 = 3.14, ie, probably dead. If you figure based on a hypothetical third season or the wiggle room given by the most likely scenario of his return, 20/7 = 2.86 or 19/7 = 2.71, or even 18/7 if you count both, leading to a 2.57, and a solid ''maybe'', ignoring the WordOfGod. might. If you figure without including "time since death:" 18/6 = 3 (...exactly the same as the previous entry. Who came back. I swear I didn't do that on purpose).

So everyone who says [[spoiler:CC was talking to him in the last episode]] has a leg to stand on, though I'm ambivalent over whether or not I like this.

And just for fun, let's see how [[DemBones Brook]] scores
* Result: 20/8 = [[ArcNumber 2.5]]. Wow. Well played, [[{{Troll}} Kawamori]], well played indeed.

For comparison, [[spoiler:Alto Saotome]] (Series version) [[spoiler:At the end of Episode 24]]

[[HowToKillACharacter Cause of Death: NoOneCouldSurviveThat, [[spoiler:Brera drills a hole straight through Alto's VF-171EX, which spins out of control on fire, then explodes]] Of Death]]: NoOneCouldSurviveThat - Technically he didn't. - 2

* Body Found: [[spoiler:FauxDeath, he ejected]] - 1
* Reaction: Roughly ItsPersonal, [[spoiler:Sheryl screaming out his name when she sees his Valkyrie explode, complete with PastelChalkedFreezeFrame. There is argument for a 4 with Brera's PreMortemOneLiner]] - 2
* Last Words: [[spoiler:"Klan!"
This possibly constitutes is the main thing. Brook died in a KilledMidSentence, so we'll go with flashback, but he ate a Devil's Fruit that in exchange for the 2 above]] brought him back to life. - 4
3/1
* Body: DeaderThanDead or LeftForDead - You can't get much deader than a skeleton, but he IS alive now. - 4/1
* Characterization: [[spoiler:TheHero]] Protagonist - He's a Straw Hat now. - 1
* Reaction: Montage or [[WakingUpAtTheMorgue Waking Up]] - He died in a flashback, but he pretty much woke back up where his body was left. - 4/1
* Died: [[spoiler:Just before Last Year - A year had gone by the last episode]] - 1
* Died and come back: [[spoiler:Hadn't yet]] - 4
* Result: 18/8 = 2.25. [[spoiler:He
time his soul got better, beginning back to his body. - 2
* Previous Death: Once, but got better- Devil's Fruit brught him back. - 3
* Average: Brook's score is a bit
of Episode 25 shows a doozy, depending on how you're working the score. If you count the fact that he ejected right before Brera shot his plane down, so in the movies man died in a flashback with a montage and that he's only slightly more dead deader than he was in dead, you're going to get '2.71'. If you go by the series fact that death is cheap and he woke up on the boat where he came back the next episode. Almost exactly as dead if had been left, you count him coming back in the series continuity.]]

Also, [[spoiler:Mikhail Blanc]] (Series version)
get '1.57'. This would probably best handled by averaging those scores and putting it at '2.14'. Being that he's currently alive, it make this moot, but you gotta wonder.

Mr. 2, comparing his most recent "death" and his previous one

* Previous Death: Assumed to have died once before - 3, 4 in his original "death"
* Average: 2.25 this time, 2.5 the previous time. He could survive this time, too, given how similar the circumstances are.

Now here's an interesting experiment to see how likely it is for Oda to kill off a character in the present timeline.

Dr. Fuji of ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie''.

[[folder:''School-Live!'']]

Here is a cute SliceOfLife SchoolgirlSeries, so [[TemptingFate how certain can the deaths actually be]]?

Character one: Megumi "Megu-nee" Sakura
* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice. 3
* '''Audience Expectation''': AnyoneCanDie -- This is an absolute given since Creator/{{Nitroplus}} wrote the anime's script and one of its members produced the original manga. 4
* '''Body found?''': Yes, it's witnessed and confirmed on screen. 3
* '''Reaction''': MeaningfulFuneral -- The cross on the roof was meant for this character. 4
* '''Last Words''': ObiWanMoment. 3
* '''Characterization''': '''''Loved one!''''' 4
* '''When (s)he died''': Same year. 2
* '''Died and came back?''': Technically no, but she [[CameBackWrong did come back in horrifying fashion]] and was eventually put down for good. 4
* RESULT: 27/8 = 3.375... '''Okay''', ''what the hell?!'' This is supposed to be a "[[{{Iyashikei}} healing anime]]", [[MemeticMutation right]]?! '''[[SubvertedTrope Wrong]]'''!

Character two: Taroumaru in the anime version
* '''Cause of Death''': StuffedIntoTheFridge essentially. 4
* '''Audience Expectation''': AnyoneCanDie. 4
* '''Body found?''': Yes. The death happens on screen, and the body is given yet another MeaningfulFuneral. 4
* '''Reaction''': ReallyDeadMontage -- ''Everyone'' recalls the times they spent with this character. 4
* '''Last words''': FamousLastWords is the best way to describe this. 3
* '''Characterization''': Another loved one. 4
* '''When (s)he died''': [[GrandFinale "Graduation" Day]]. 4
* '''Died and came back?''': Again, not a technical death the first time, but the second leaves no question. 4
* RESULT: 31/8 = '''''3.875'''''! Seriously, Creator/{{Nitroplus}} actually ''would do it''. Tempting them is SchmuckBait at best!

'''Manga/DetectiveConan'''

[[spoiler:Shuichi Akai]]
* Cause: HeroicSacrifice. 3.
* Genre: While someone dies in most episodes, this never happens to recurring characters, so I'm going with NobodyCanDie. 1.
* The Body: While they found a body, the identification was somewhat shady and there were apparently some strange things with the body. 3.
* Reaction: Between Jodie's tears and the symbolism of being unable to reach him by phone, 3.
* Last Words: The words were direct more at Rena than Akai, which may lower the number? 3.

* Come Back?: 4.
* Average: 23/8 = 2.875

'''Literature/FromTheNewWorld'''

Episode 10 featured the dramatic farewell and death for [[spoiler:Shun]]. Given that he plays such a big role for Group One and that he [[spoiler:always loved Saki]], though, one has to question whether he simply disappeared or really died. Let's find out.
* '''Cause of death''': Swallowed up by the Earth before being [[RetGone retgoned]] from people's memories by the Ethics Committee. I say 4.
* '''Audience expectation''': Based on a dark YA novel by Yusuke Kishi, the series makes it crystal clear that AnyoneCanDie. 4.
* '''Body found?''': Saki last saw [[spoiler:Shun]] getting swallowed up into the Earth. The others in Kamisu 66, however, can't find his body. It's probably a 3 (fulfills categories for both a 4 and a 2, so I averaged them).
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler: [[SayMyName "SHUN!!!"]]]]. Let's say it's a 3.
* '''Last words''': [[FamousLastWords "Saki, I have always loved you. Goodbye..."]] 3.
* '''Characterization''': At that point, a regular. He was, however, a LoveInterest for Saki. An average of 3.
* '''When did they die?''': Took place when Saki was 14 years old. Since the narrator [[spoiler:aka the grown-up Saki]] is a 36 year old woman at the time, however, it's over 22 years in real time. Let's go with 4.
* '''"Died" and came back?''': Has not reappeared since... 4.
* '''Average''': 28/8 equals '''3.5.''' Hate to break the news to you Saki, but [[spoiler:Shun]] has been KilledOffForReal.

----
''Manga/AttackOnTitan''
The summer's most murder-tastic anime definitely needs a page here.

For fun, let's start with [[spoiler: Eren Jaegar's]] near the beginning of the story.
* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice. He dives into a Titan's mouth to save [[spoiler: Armin.]] Solid 3.
* '''Audience Expectation''': The show is definitely edging into AnyoneCanDie at this point. 4
* '''Body Found''': Well, on the one hand his body was never found, but that's because he was ''swallowed by a Titan.'' Let's go for 3, averaging NeverFoundTheBody and ChunkySalsaRule because of all those lost limbs.
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler: Armin]] gets a really fast, freaky montage in the next episode and a couple of flashbacks. 4.
* '''Last Words''': An inspiring speech about going to see the outside world. 4.
* '''Characterization''': Probably his one saving category. [[spoiler: 1. He's the protagonist!]]
* '''When Did They Die?''': 1
* '''Died and Came Back?''': At that point, no, nor had anybody else. 4.
** RESULT: 3 on the nose. [[spoiler: Pretty dead for someone who canonically [[UnexplainedRecovery got better]]]]

And now one of the iconic shock tragedies of the series, [[spoiler: [[FanNickname Freckled Jesus]] Marco Bott]]
* '''Cause of Death''': {{Overkill}} with a hefty dose of {{Irony}}. He's torn in half by a Titan after the battle of Trost offscreen, ''after'' everyone thinks they're safe. 4.
* '''Audience Expectation''': AnyoneCanDie. 4.
* '''Body Found''': OH GOD YES CHUNKY SALSA RULE INSTANT 4
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler: "Marco...is that you?"]] HesDeadJim. 3.
* '''Last Words''': Not applicable. He's killed offscreen, so he doesn't really get them. Or at least they're not seen.
* '''Characterization''': Probably around enough by that point to qualify as a RecurringCharacter. 3.
* '''When Did They Die?''': Hm. A few arcs ago, now, so probably a 2.
* '''Died and Came Back?''': Nope. Only [[spoiler: Eren]] gets to do that. 4.
** RESULT: 3.4. Yeah, [[spoiler: no resurrection for Freckled Jesus.]]

Let's see if we can go higher. Ooh, how about [[spoiler: Petra Ral?]]
* '''Cause Of Death''': {{Irony}} Similar to [[spoiler: Marco]] above, she's killed right after everything appears to be safe. She is also killed after the PowerOfFriendship appears to have triumphed...[[spoiler: by a traitor.]]. 4.
* '''Audience Expectation''': After [[spoiler: Marco?]] ANYONE can die. 4
* '''Body Found''': She's put in a morgue - er, cart. 3.
* '''Reaction''': There are plenty of montages of [[spoiler: Levi's squad after they all die.]] 4.
* '''Last Words''': [[spoiler: It prioritized one eye to accelerate the healing! Is that even possible?]] Pretty much a lengthier OhCrap. 4.
* '''Characterization''': MauveShirt, at that point. She'd been around for a bit, but we didn't know as much about her as we did, say, the 104s. 4.
* '''When Did They Die?''': The manga has moved on enough that this qualifies for a 2.
* '''Died and Came Back?''': Nope. 4.
** RESULT: 3.6 [[spoiler: Wow. Petra's...really, really dead.]]

Okay, okay, last one - [[spoiler: Carla Jaegar!]]
* '''Cause Of Death''': StuffedIntoTheFridge in the first episode. Her death exists to cause the protagonist pain. 4.
* '''Audience Expectation''': Hers is the first death in the series, but by now we know we should expect AnyoneCanDie. 4.
* '''Body Found''': Hm...I'm actually going to go with 4 here, because not only does she get eaten by a Titan, but the manga pretty clearly shows the Titan biting clean through her legs on the way down.
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler: Eren]] has enough montage-flashbacks of her to qualify for a 4.
* '''Last Words''': Does "Please come back!" count as an OhCrap? 4.
* '''Characterization''': Loved one. 4.
* '''When Did They Die?''': Approximately 5 years before the main arc. 3.
* '''Died and Came Back?''': No. 4.
** RESULT: 3.9 Holy shit. If Attack on Titan ends with a timeskip of over five years without her coming back, she'll tie for first place.

----
''Anime/{{K}}'' had two pretty dramatic casualties in its final episodes:

[[spoiler: Yashiro Isana]]
* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice to [[spoiler: kill the Colourless King.]] 3
* '''Audience Expectation''': At this point one character has been KilledOffForReal. 3
* '''Body Found''': NeverFoundTheBody. 2
* '''Last Words''': [[spoiler: only a King can kill another King.]] Pretty much an ObiWanMoment. He's very calm. 3
* '''Characterization''': [[spoiler: Protagonist!]] 1

''Anime/Figure17TsubasaAndHikaru''

For being a relaxing SliceOfLife show with ScienceFiction to steer the plot, it got [[CerebusSyndrome pretty damn serious]] in the last few episodes. Can the wonders of the aliens' technology save these two particular characters?

First Death: '''[[spoiler: Sho Aizawa]]'''

* '''Cause of Death''': DroppedABridgeOnHim. 4
* '''Audience Expectation''': It '''was''' the first death, and there was no {{Foreshadowing}} either. N/A.
* '''Body Found''': Yes, a MeaningfulFuneral was held in his honor. 4
* '''Reaction''': One character in particular went into a HeroicBSOD for ''weeks'' over this. 4
* '''Last Words''': "[[FamousLastWords I'll see you tommorow]]!" even echoes in said character's mind. 3
* '''Characterization''': RecurringCharacter. 3
* '''When (s)he died''': Same year. 2
* '''Died and come back''': Nope. 4
* RESULT: 24/7 = 3.43. '''''Ouch'''''! With this death, InfantImmortality clearly [[AvertedTrope does not apply]] to this show. He's among the [[DeaderThanDead the most dead]] characters to die within a SliceOfLife narrative.

Second Death: '''[[spoiler: Hikaru Shiina]]'''

* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice by HeroicRROD. 3
* '''Audience Expectation''': This time, we ''do have'' plenty of {{Foreshadowing}}. Sadly, all signs point to KilledOffForReal. 3
* '''Body Found''': [[spoiler: Disintegrated. 4]]
* '''Reaction''': HesDeadJim. 3
* '''Last Words''': FinalSpeech along with GoOutWithASmile. 3
* '''Characterization''' [[spoiler: Protagonist. 1]]
* '''When (s)he died''': GrandFinale. 4
* '''Died and come back''': Nope. 4
* RESULT: 25/8 = 3.125. '''Highly''' unlikely candidate for revival.

In short, ''do not'' let this fluffy show fool you. These aliens are not miracle workers like many any other shows of its genre would have you think.

''Manga/SchoolLive''

Here is a cute SliceOfLife SchoolgirlSeries, so [[TemptingFate how certain can the deaths actually be]]?

Character one: [[spoiler:Megumi "Megu-nee" Sakura]]

* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice. 3
* '''Audience Expectation''': AnyoneCanDie -- This is an absolute given since Creator/{{Nitroplus}} wrote the anime's script and one of its members produced the original manga. 4
* '''Body found?''': Yes, it's witnessed and confirmed on screen. 3
* '''Reaction''': MeaningfulFuneral -- The cross on the roof was meant for this character. 4
* '''Last Words''': ObiWanMoment. 3
* '''Characterization''': '''''Loved one!''''' 4
* '''When (s)he died''': Same year. 2
* '''Died and came back?''': Technically no, but she [[CameBackWrong did come back in horrifying fashion]] and was eventually put down for good. 4
* RESULT: 27/8 = 3.375... '''Okay''', ''what the hell?!'' This is supposed to be a "[[{{Iyashikei}} healing anime]]", [[MemeticMutation right]]?! '''[[SubvertedTrope Wrong]]'''!


Character two: [[spoiler:Taroumaru]] in the anime version.

* '''Cause of Death''': StuffedIntoTheFridge essentially. 4
* '''Audience Expectation''': AnyoneCanDie. 4
* '''Body found?''': Yes. The death happens on screen, and the body is given yet another MeaningfulFuneral. 4
* '''Reaction''': ReallyDeadMontage -- ''Everyone'' recalls the times they spent with this character. 4
* '''Last words''': FamousLastWords is the best way to describe this. 3
* '''Characterization''': Another loved one. 4
* '''When (s)he died''': [[GrandFinale "Graduation" Day]]. 4
* '''Died and came back?''': Again, not a technical death the first time, but the second leaves no question. 4
* RESULT: 31/8 = '''''3.875'''''! Seriously, Creator/{{Nitroplus}} actually ''would do it''. Tempting them is SchmuckBait at best!

----

How about the two biggest recipients of HesJustHiding in ''Anime/DanganRonpa3''?

[[spoiler:Chiaki Nanami]]

* '''Cause of Death''': Tortured to death. 2.
* '''Audience Expectation''': Generally AnyoneCanDie, but the anime has employed its share of {{Disney Death}}s. Averages out to a 3.
* '''Body found?''': Technically found by Izuru, but she was still alive at the time. We never actually see what happens to it after that. 2.
* '''Reaction''': Izuru decides ItsPersonal. 2
* '''Last words''': Sobbing about how she doesn't want to die. 3.
* '''Characterization''': One of the main characters. 1.
* '''Died and came back?''': Nope. 4
* '''Result:''' 17/7 = 2.42. It's okay everyone, she's not really gone.

[[spoiler:Juzo Sakukura]]

* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice + RedemptionEqualsDeath. 3.
* '''Audience Expectation''': See above. 3.
* '''Body found?''': Found but not buried. 3.
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler:Munakata]] weeps over his body. 3.
* '''Last words''': Gives a big internal heroic monologue about how he wants to save [[spoiler:Munakata]]. 3.
* '''Characterization''': Regular semi-antagonist. 2.
* '''Died and came back?''': He was faked out once before, so yeah. 3.
* '''Result:''' 20/7 = 2.85. There's a chance, but it's a slim one.

For curiosity's sake, let's check the odds of someone who ''did'' come back:

[[spoiler:Kyoko Kirigiri]]

* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice 3.
* '''Audience Expectation''': See above. 3.
* '''Body found?''': They literally wake up and find it right there, but left it behind shortly after. 3
* '''Reaction''': Huge amount of weeping, plus several montage-esque flashbacks. 4.
* '''Last words''': Encouraging speech and AlwaysWithYou moment. 3.
* '''Characterization''': Main character. 1.
* '''Died and came back?''': Nada. 4.
* '''Result:''' 21/7 = solid 3. Well hey, her odds were actually ''worse'' than the above and she came back, so I guess anything's possible.

to:

* Result: 29/8 = 3.625. Hoo boy. [[spoiler:She's]] She's pretty much DeaderThanDead.

----
'''Manga/DetectiveConan'''

[[spoiler:Shuichi Akai]]
* Cause: HeroicSacrifice. 3.
* Genre: While someone dies in most episodes, this never happens to recurring characters, so I'm going with NobodyCanDie. 1.
* The Body: While they found a body, the identification was somewhat shady and there were apparently
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Yu Yu Hakusho'']]

Here's
some strange things with the body. 3.
* Reaction: Between Jodie's tears and the symbolism of being unable to reach him by phone, 3.
* Last Words: The words were direct
cases in Yu Yu Hakusho that shows some values are more at Rena important than Akai, which may lower the number? 3.
others.

''Genkai's first death''
* Characterization: RecurringCharacter. 3.
* When did he die: 2007, so 3.
* Come Back?: 4.
* Average: 23/8 = 2.875

----
'''Literature/FromTheNewWorld'''

Episode 10 featured the dramatic farewell and death for [[spoiler:Shun]]. Given that he plays such a big role for Group One and that he [[spoiler:always loved Saki]], though, one has to question whether he simply disappeared or really died. Let's find out.
* '''Cause
Cause of death''': Swallowed up by the Earth before being [[RetGone retgoned]] from people's memories by the Ethics Committee. I say 4.
* '''Audience expectation''': Based on a dark YA novel by Yusuke Kishi, the series makes it crystal clear that AnyoneCanDie. 4.
* '''Body found?''': Saki last saw [[spoiler:Shun]] getting swallowed up into the Earth. The others in Kamisu 66, however, can't find his body. It's probably a 3 (fulfills categories for both a 4 and a 2, so I averaged them).
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler: [[SayMyName "SHUN!!!"]]]]. Let's say it's a 3.
* '''Last words''': [[FamousLastWords "Saki, I have always loved you. Goodbye..."]] 3.
* '''Characterization''': At that point, a regular. He was, however, a LoveInterest for Saki. An average of 3.
* '''When did they die?''': Took place when Saki was 14 years old. Since the narrator [[spoiler:aka the grown-up Saki]] is a 36 year old woman at the time, however, it's over 22 years in real time. Let's go with 4.
* '''"Died" and came back?''': Has not reappeared since... 4.
* '''Average''': 28/8 equals '''3.5.''' Hate to break the news to you Saki, but [[spoiler:Shun]] has been KilledOffForReal.

----
''Manga/AttackOnTitan''
The summer's most murder-tastic anime definitely needs a page here.

For fun, let's start with [[spoiler: Eren Jaegar's]] near the beginning of the story.
* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice. He dives into a Titan's mouth to save [[spoiler: Armin.]] Solid 3.
* '''Audience Expectation''': The show is definitely edging into AnyoneCanDie at this point. 4
* '''Body Found''': Well, on the one hand his body was never found, but that's because he was ''swallowed by a Titan.'' Let's go for 3, averaging NeverFoundTheBody and ChunkySalsaRule because of all those lost limbs.
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler: Armin]] gets a really fast, freaky montage in the next episode and a couple of flashbacks. 4.
* '''Last Words''': An inspiring speech about going to see the outside world. 4.
* '''Characterization''': Probably his one saving category. [[spoiler: 1. He's the protagonist!]]
* '''When Did They Die?''': 1
* '''Died and Came Back?''': At that point, no, nor had anybody else. 4.
** RESULT: 3 on the nose. [[spoiler: Pretty dead for someone who canonically [[UnexplainedRecovery got better]]]]

And now one of the iconic shock tragedies of the series, [[spoiler: [[FanNickname Freckled Jesus]] Marco Bott]]
* '''Cause of Death''': {{Overkill}} with a hefty dose of {{Irony}}. He's torn in half by a Titan after the battle of Trost offscreen, ''after'' everyone thinks they're safe. 4.
* '''Audience Expectation''': AnyoneCanDie. 4.
* '''Body Found''': OH GOD YES CHUNKY SALSA RULE INSTANT 4
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler: "Marco...is that you?"]] HesDeadJim. 3.
* '''Last Words''': Not applicable. He's killed offscreen, so he doesn't really get them. Or at least they're not seen.
* '''Characterization''': Probably around enough by that point to qualify as a RecurringCharacter. 3.
* '''When Did They Die?''': Hm. A few arcs ago, now, so probably a 2.
* '''Died and Came Back?''': Nope. Only [[spoiler: Eren]] gets to do that. 4.
** RESULT: 3.4. Yeah, [[spoiler: no resurrection for Freckled Jesus.]]

Let's see if we can go higher. Ooh, how about [[spoiler: Petra Ral?]]
* '''Cause Of Death''': {{Irony}} Similar to [[spoiler: Marco]] above, she's killed right after everything appears to be safe. She is also killed after the PowerOfFriendship appears to have triumphed...[[spoiler: by a traitor.]]. 4.
* '''Audience Expectation''': After [[spoiler: Marco?]] ANYONE can die. 4
* '''Body Found''': She's put in a morgue - er, cart. 3.
* '''Reaction''': There are plenty of montages of [[spoiler: Levi's squad after they all die.]] 4.
* '''Last Words''': [[spoiler: It prioritized one eye to accelerate the healing! Is that even possible?]] Pretty much a lengthier OhCrap. 4.
* '''Characterization''': MauveShirt, at that point. She'd been around for a bit, but we didn't know as much about her as we did, say, the 104s. 4.
* '''When Did They Die?''': The manga has moved on enough that this qualifies for a 2.
* '''Died and Came Back?''': Nope. 4.
** RESULT: 3.6 [[spoiler: Wow. Petra's...really, really dead.]]

Okay, okay, last one - [[spoiler: Carla Jaegar!]]
* '''Cause Of Death''':
Death: Quasi-Heroic Sacrifice, [[spoiler:died fighting Toguro]], although technically StuffedIntoTheFridge - 3
* Genre: BackFromTheDead - 1
* Reaction: Montage - 4
* Body: Found, handed over to Koenma - 4
* Characterization: Regular - 2
* Died: Same Arc - 1
* Previous Death: No - 4
* Average: 2.71. Initially unlikely to come back [[spoiler:but did]]

''Genkai's second death''
* Cause of Death: Natural causes, somewhat sudden Bridge Drop, since she was alive and well
in the first episode. Her death exists to cause the protagonist pain. previous chapters - 4
* Genre: BackFromTheDead - 1.
* Reaction: Funeral seen some time later -
4.
* '''Audience Expectation''': Hers is the first death in the series, but by now Body: Not applicable, we know we should expect AnyoneCanDie. 4.
* '''Body Found''': Hm...I'm actually going to go with 4 here, because not only does she get eaten by a Titan, but the manga pretty clearly shows the Titan biting clean through
didn't see her legs on the way down.
die
* '''Reaction''': [[spoiler: Eren]] has enough montage-flashbacks of her to qualify for a 4.
Characterization: Regular - 2
* '''Last Words''': Does "Please come back!" count as an OhCrap? 4.
Died: 10+ Years Ago - 4
* '''Characterization''': Loved one. 4.
* '''When Did They Die?''': Approximately 5 years before the main arc. 3.
* '''Died and Came Back?''': No. 4.
** RESULT: 3.9 Holy shit. If Attack on Titan ends with a timeskip of over five years without her coming back, she'll tie for first place.

----
''Anime/{{K}}'' had two pretty dramatic casualties in its final episodes:

[[spoiler: Yashiro Isana]]
* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice to [[spoiler: kill the Colourless King.]] 3
* '''Audience Expectation''': At this point one character has been KilledOffForReal.
Previous Death: Yes. 3
* '''Body Found''': NeverFoundTheBody. 2
* '''Last Words''': [[spoiler: only a King can kill another King.]] Pretty much an ObiWanMoment. He's very calm. 3
* '''Characterization''': [[spoiler: Protagonist!]] 1
* '''When Did They Die''': SeriesFinale. 4
* '''Died and Came Back''': Not exactly, but he has been [[spoiler: mortally wounded twice, once by falling out of a blimp and once by being stabbed with a piece of glass, and both times he came back.]] So at the very least, 2
** RESULT: 2.6. He'll be back before we know it.

[[spoiler: Mikoto Suoh]]
* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice. [[spoiler: Same reason as Shiro, only he purposefully overextends his power and Munakata has
Average: 3. Unlikely to kill him.]] 3.
* '''Audience Expectation''': As before, we've had a confirmed death by now. 3
* '''Body Found''': A really bizarre combination of LeftForDead - which is what [[spoiler: Munakata]] did - and DeaderThanDead - because his [[spoiler: Sword of Damocles]] dissolved. Hard to score that.
* '''Reaction''': HesDeadJim, both from [[spoiler: SCEPTER 4 when they see Munakata return, and from all of HOMRA when their tattoos begin to fly away. ItMakesSenseInContext.]] 3.
* '''Last Words''': [[spoiler: I'm sorry, Anna...I won't be able to show you that lovely red anymore.]] Definite FamousLastWords. 3.
* '''Characterization''': RecurringCharacter, but not quite a regular - 3.
* '''When Did They Die''': SeriesFinale. 4.
* '''Died and Came Back.''': Not this one. 4.
* RESULT: 3.3. WordOfGod seems to imply that yeah, he's gone for good.

Second Death: '''[[spoiler: Hikaru Shiina]]'''

* '''Cause of Death''': HeroicSacrifice by HeroicRROD. 3
* '''Audience Expectation''': This time, we ''do have'' plenty of {{Foreshadowing}}. Sadly, all signs point to KilledOffForReal. 3
* '''Body Found''': [[spoiler: Disintegrated. 4]]
