Buffy's Death at the end of Season 5
* Cause: Sacrifice -- 3
* Genre: AnyoneCanDie[=/=]DisneyDeath -- 2.5
* Body Found?: Dead and Buried -- 4
* Reaction: Montage -- 4
* Last Words: Final Speech -- 3
* Characterization: Protagonist -- 1
* When: Same Year -- 2
* Died Before?: Once -- 3
* Total: 22.5/8 = 2.8125 -- Maybe back later (but sometime soon)
** Oh look, she comes back early in the next season!

'''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'''

The show-runner has claimed he wanted us, in the gap between seasons, to ponder Starbuck's highly ambiguous post-mortem appearance. Is she an Obi-Wan style hallucination, or properly BackFromTheDead? Let's see if the algorithm can tell us.
* Cause of Death: Redemption/suicide, so 3.
* This show has previously been at pains to establish that AnyoneCanDie: 4.
* Body: Never Found, and the search was called off, on the always suspicious grounds that NoOneCouldSurviveThat. Looking more hopeful. 3.
* Reaction: No ReallyDeadMontage, but plenty of grief-y scenes intended to hammer home her properly-deadness. [[HesDeadJim She's dead, Apollo.]] 3.
* Characterization: Some fans characterize Starbuck as TheHero (with a low chance of permanent death) while others see her as the fracked-up TheLancer to Apollo's more straight-arrow [[TheHero Hero]] (which would make her much more expendable).
** But: we've been frequently told she's TheChosenOne, and tellingly, we still haven't seen what this might entail. So lets give her a 1.
* Died and come back?: Not unless you count her surviving a crash landing in season 1, so 4.
* Final, non-algorithm bit of evidence? She's an asbestos-coated PluckyGirl.
* '''Average:''' (19/7 = 2.71) Conclusion? A fine effort at keeping us guessing, but still, very probably back in the flesh.

[[spoiler: Starbuck is an uncertainty lich. She has been observed in the same shot, at the same time, as being both dead and alive. We just haven't observed which version 'is' Starbuck, as one must wonder if one can be in both states at once...]]

'''Series/{{Heroes}}'''

Alejandro's death in episode 2.20.
* Cause of death: [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Bridge Drop]] via a really, really stupid (and unarmed!) confrontation with last season's BigBad '''(4)'''.
* Genre: It ''used to be'' AnyoneCanDie, but several characters exhibit DeathIsCheap and can extend the favor '''(3)'''.
* Body: DeaderThanDead, and confirmed by a girl who can find anyone ''alive.'' '''(4)'''.
* Reaction: He was a third tier character and has had only his sister angsting over his death with an "ItsPersonal". '''(2)'''.
* Characterization: RedShirt from day one (apparently confirmed by the actor as well), only barely ''hinting'' at Mauve Shirt, it only got worse when he and his sister ran into Sylar, at which point he was the third wheel in a tertiary plotline. '''(4)'''.
* When did he die: Same Year, so '''(2)'''.
* Average: 19/6, Add it up and you get... '''3.16'''. Bye bye, Alejandro.

D.L. Hawkins' death in ''Four Months Ago''.
* Cause of Death: Actually managed to survive a HeroicSacrifice at the end of Season 1, only to be killed by some random goon in the middle of the TimeSkip to Season 2. Definitely DroppedABridgeOnHim. 4.
* Genre: As stated above, Season 1 was AnyoneCanDie, whereas Season 2 really likes to play around with DeathIsCheap. I give it a 3.
* Body: Dead and buried. DeaderThanDead. 4.
* Reaction: We get a GoryDiscretionShot to Niki's shocked face as D.L. gets shot in the chest, then we see Niki and Micah morning over his grave. I'd say HesDeadJim. 3.
* Characterization: A Series Regular, although the whole Niki arch was kind of tenuously related to the show's main plotline. I'd still give him a 2.
* When did he die: "Four Month Ago", so Same Year. 2.
* '''Average''': An even 3. D.L., we hardly knew ya...

Sylar's Death in "Dual"
* Cause of Death: Stabbed in the back of the head and left in a burning building. NoOneCouldSurviveThat '''2)'''
* Genre: For DL and Alejandro it might have been 3, but this is Sylar we're talking about '''(2)''' if not less
* Body: NeverFoundTheBody '''(3)'''
* Reaction: Claire and family watching the building burn, reassuring each other he's finally gone. '''(2.5)'''
* Characterization: Archvillain from the audience's point of view, Protagonist from the writer's. Either way '''(1)'''
* When did he die: Same Arc '''(1)'''
* Died and come back?: You could argue this back and forth but being impaled in season one and having his throat slit in season three should both count, so '''(2)'''
* '''Average''': 13.5/7 = '''1.92''' He showed up the next episode without even bothering to explain his survival. He's Sylar, he '''always''' comes back.
** ''He'' didn't explain. Noah Bennet said in a later episode that the fire melted the brain-impaling glass that [[GoodThingYouCanHeal kept him dead.]]

[[spoiler: Daphne's]] death in ''"Cold Snap"''
* Cause of Death: Septic bullet wound. It was originally delivered when [[spoiler: she]] showed up to try and save the fugitives after the plane crash, so we'll call it a HeroicSacrifice. '''(3)'''
* Genre: Normally Heroes borders on DeathIsCheap, but the recent Volume has been better about characters ''staying dead'', so KilledOffForReal. '''(3)'''
* Found the Body?: Died in [[spoiler: Matt Parkman's]] arms at the hospital. '''(4)'''
* Reaction: A flatlining heart-monitor told us HesDeadJim. '''(3)'''
* Characterization: Recurring Character and Love Interest, '''(3)'''
* When did [[spoiler: she]] die?: Same arc. '''(1)'''
* Died and came back?: Not yet. '''(4)'''
* '''Average''': 21/7 = '''3'''. When even the [[WordOfGod director]] says a character's [[KilledOffForReal gone for good]], you know they're not coming back.

[[spoiler:Nathan's]] death in the season four finale.
* Cause of Death: Stupidly attacked ''Sylar'', and was shown with throat viciously cut on screen. Bridge drop, 4.
* Genre: Supposedly AnyoneCanDie, but for some DeathIsCheap, so 3.
* Body Found: Yes, and shown on screen. 4.
* Reaction: Considering the massive [[spoiler:MindRape of Sylar]] to account for it, possibly close to a montage. Otherwise, not dwelt upon much. 3.
* Characterization: Protagonist, but also TheAtoner, so 2.
* When: Same year, nearly the same arc as it was only two or three episodes ago. 1.5.
* "Died" and Come Back: [[spoiler:Yes, in season one and two. Infamous for doing this after finales, which drops the score.]] 1.5
* Average: 19/7 = 2.71. But seeing as it's one of the more popular (Read, Polarizing) characters of the show, expect him back fairly soon. Like, next few episodes.

Mitchell.
* Cause of Death: Actually managed HeroicSacrifice, 3
* Audience Expectation: AnyoneCanDie, 4
* Body Found: DeaderThanDead, 4
* I don't think it was on the list
* Last Words: Putting it under FinalSpeech: 3
* Characterization: [[spoiler: One of the protagonists, so I'll just say 1.5]]
* When Did They Die: SeasonFinale isn't on the list so I'll put 2.5
* Died And Come Back?: Nope, not really, 4
* Final score: [[spoiler: 22/7=3.14-Don't count on it]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Blake's 7'']]

Let's start with Roj Blake.
* CoD: Shot [[spoiler:by Avon when he thought he switched sides
to survive the Federation]], so Death By Irony. 4
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: Dead & Buried. 4
* Reaction: [[spoiler:All the other protagonists are shot after they are told he didn't betray them after all.]] So say
a HeroicSacrifice Montage-level thing. 4
* Last Words: Kind of Killed Mid Sentence. 4
* Characterization: Protagonist [[spoiler:for the first two seasons, recurring character in the last two. But since the show is named after him]]...1.
* When: Well the show ended. 4
* Came back: Presumed dead once. Obviously got better. 3
* Average: 28/8 = 3.5. Stick a fork in him, he's done.

Next is the [[TheLancer Lancer]], Kerr Avon.
* CoD: [[spoiler:Surrounded by Federal troops.]] Therefore, Overkill. 4
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: We don't see him dying, so for our purposes its Never Found. 3
* Reaction: [[spoiler:BLAMBLAMBLAMBLAM over the credits.]] Calling it for Montage. 4
* Last Words: [[spoiler:Grinning like a madman in an Bolivian Army Ending.]] Hmm...Oh Crap works best. 4
* Characterization: Protagonist. 1.
* When: Show ended. 4
* Came back: Never. 4
* Average: 28/8 = 3.5. As dead as [[spoiler:Blake]].

Then for Vila Restal.
* CoD: Surrounded, Overkill. 4
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: Either Dead & Buried or Left For Dead [[spoiler:(he fell differently than other members of the Seven when shot)]]. We will measure both. 4 or 1
* Reaction: [[spoiler:Blake is dead, everyone else is being shot up.]] Montage-level again. 4
* Last Words: Oh Crap-ish. 4
* Characterization: Protagonist. 1.
* When: Final episode. 4
* Came back: Never. 4
* Average: 29/8 & 26/8 = 3.625 OR 3.25. Average of Average is 3.4375. Less dead than either [[spoiler:Blake or Avon]], still more than likely incorporeal.

How about a few for fun, starting with Oleg Gan.
* Heroic Sacrifice to save the rest of the team. 3
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: Dead & [[spoiler:very definitely]] Buried. 4
* Reaction: He's Dead, Jim initially, [[spoiler:but the next episode was in part based on Blake trying to atone for his death]]. So, Montage-level. 4
* Last Words: [[spoiler:Crushed by a door and then the ceiling while warning everyone away.]] Famous Last Words & "Run, you fools!" combo. Give it a 3.
* Characterization: Protagonist. 1.
* When: Within the last five years of the show in-universe. 3
* Came back: Never. 4
* Average: 26/8 = 3.25. Less dead than expected. Still in no-hoper territory.

And what about Cally?
* CoD: [[spoiler:Trapped in an underground base, it explodes, no-one goes through the rubble to check on her.]] No One Could Survive That! 2
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: The body is Never Found. 3
* Reaction: He's Dead, Jim. Hardly ever mentioned again after the episode and no montage-style stuff during it. 3
* Last Words: Yep. 3.
* Characterization: Protagonist. 1.
* When: Same year. 2
* Came back: Never. 4
* Average: 22/8 = 2.75. Surprisingly less likely to be dead [[spoiler:than most all of the other Seven (barring Orac of course). See you around, Cal]]!

Finally, Jenna Stannis.
* CoD: Apparently killed while [[spoiler:blockade running]] off-screen [[spoiler:between the Season 2 and Series finales]]. Sounds like a Bridge Drop to me. 4
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: The body is Never Found. 3
* Reaction: He's Dead, Jim. Mentioned casually. 3
* No last words recorded, so we will skip this one.
* Characterization: Ex-protagonist, [[spoiler:disappeared for two seasons]]. Call it a Regular. 2.
* When: Within the last 5 years or so. 3
* Came back: Never. 4
* Average: 23/7 = 3.286. Around the same territory as [[spoiler:Gan and Vila]]; pretty much dead meat.

'''Franchise/StarTrek'''

Captain Kirk:

* Body Found?: Done and buried. 4.
* Reaction: [[HesDeadJim You're Dead, Jim]]. 3.
* Characterization: Protagonist; however, Generations was a torch-passing movie. 1.5
* When did they die? 10+ years ago. 4.
* Average: 19/6 = 3.166... Sorry fanboys. Your only hope to see the good captain alive again is if by some miracle they greenlight a movie covering her maiden voyage. And we all know that's a crazy notion.
** [[Film/StarTrek Or IS it?]] (Although that's an AlternateContinuity. And even though it features the [[spoiler:original Spock]], the producers stated they discarded featuring the original Kirk because he died)

'''Series/{{Torchwood}}'''

Toshiko Sato, series 2

Owen Harper, series 2:

* Last Words: Final Speech. 3
* Characterisation: Regular. 2
* When: A couple seasons back. 2
* Come back: Earlier, for varying definitions of "back". 3

* Reaction: HesDeadJim. 3
* Characterisation: Regular. 2

* Come back before?: If you count Kiss of Life in Cyberwoman, then yes. 3
** Also, taking into account he also died in ''Turn Left'', then it's down to 2
* Average: 21/7 = 3.

Vera Juarez, [[Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay series 4]]:
* Cause of Death: Burned alive. NobodyCanDie (literally), but that's a FateWorseThanDeath. Let's call it Overkill. 4
* Genre: NobodyCanDie, but given the nature of things, this section becomes non-applicable.
* Body: OnlyBitsAndPieces: In episode 6 Colin, states that she's dust. 4
* Reaction: ItsPersonal. 2
* Last Words: [[OhCrap Horrifying Screaming]]. 4
* Characterisation: Regular. It was honestly looking like she was going to be a proper TW character. It was even made official by Jack in the same episode. 2
* When: Same Arc. 1
* Died Before? No. 4
* 21/7 = 3.00. We may never see her again.

Since the "time" aspect of it will increase over the course of the next season, and, unlike Artie, there was no way for him to come back yet established, he might just be gone. If he does come back, it will almost definitely be because of H.G. Wells' time machine (it will be MacPhearson earlier in life, of course, but same guy).

S3 finale was quite a massacre of characters. Let's see, chronologically:

[[spoiler:Jinx]]

* Cause: sacrifice, YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness (3.5)
* Expectation: the series uses DisneyDeath a lot, however, by the end of the two-parter it's not so certain. (2.5)
* Body: at the morgue (3)
* Reaction: it's personal. Wow, [[spoiler:Claudia]] can be ''very'' scary. (2)
* Last words: a video message, (3)
* Characterization: regular in S3 (2)
* When: same arc (it's not over yet...), (1)
* Came back: not yet (4)
* 21/8='''2.625''', since [[spoiler:Claudia]] is hell-bent on resurrecting [[spoiler:him]], we will probably see [[spoiler:him]] again.

[[spoiler:H.G. Welles]]
* Cause: redemption, sacrifice (3)
* Expectation: the same (2.5)
* Body: atoms floating around (4)
* Reaction: between It's personal and He's Dead, Jim (2.5)
* Last words: 2
* Characterization: recurring (3)
* When: same arc (1)
* Came back: from death, nope. (4)
* 24/8='''3''', maybe [[spoiler:she]]'ll be back.

[[spoiler:Mrs. Fredrick]]
* Cause: bridge drop (4)
* Expectation: still 2.5
* Body: [[spoiler:shown her true age, insta-mummy]] (4)
* Reaction: nobody really liked [[spoiler:her]], He's dead, Jim (3)
* Last words: none (4)
* Character: recurring (3)
* When: same arc (1)
* Came back: nope, but [[spoiler:avoided aging using her link to W13 for like 80 years]], 3.5
* 25/8 = '''3.125''', unlikely, even more so that [[spoiler:Claudia is destined to be the new caretaker]].
----

Series/{{Dexter}}'s [[spoiler:Rita Morgan]] (Season Four)
* Cause: Pure irony, considering Dexter [[spoiler:postponed their honeymoon in order to kill her murderer after he had already killed Rita, who was supposed to leave early specifically to AVOID THIS]]. Basically the definition of a 4.
* Genre: Death is usually limited to the BigBad of the season and Dexter's victims. 3.
* Body Found: By Dexter [[spoiler:in a bathtub full o' blood]].
* Reaction: FlatWhat. 2.
* Last words: Like that final phone message didn't break your heart. 4.
* Characterization: Regular. 2.
* When: I think it's been about a week since the episode aired. 1.
* Came back: Not yet. 4.
* Average: 24/8 = 3. I'd say that unless she too becomes Dexter's subconscious, she's gone for good.

----

How about ''Series/BlakesSeven''?

Let's start with [[spoiler:Roj Blake]].
* CoD: Shot [[spoiler:by Avon when he thought he switched sides to the Federation]], so Death By Irony. 4
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: Dead & Buried. 4
* Reaction: [[spoiler:All the other protagonists are shot after they are told he didn't betray them after all.]] So say a Montage-level thing. 4
* Last Words: Kind of Killed Mid Sentence. 4
* Characterization: Protagonist [[spoiler:for the first two seasons, recurring character in the last two. But since the show is named after him]]...1.
* When: Well the show ended. 4
* Came back: Presumed dead once. Obviously got better. 3
* Average: 28/8 = 3.5. Stick a fork in him, he's done.

Next is the [[TheLancer Lancer]], [[spoiler:Kerr Avon]].
* CoD: [[spoiler:Surrounded by Federal troops.]] Therefore, Overkill. 4
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: We don't see him dying, so for our purposes its Never Found. 3
* Reaction: [[spoiler:BLAMBLAMBLAMBLAM over the credits.]] Calling it for Montage. 4
* Last Words: [[spoiler:Grinning like a madman in an Bolivian Army Ending.]] Hmm...Oh Crap works best. 4
* Characterization: Protagonist. 1.
* When: Show ended. 4
* Came back: Never. 4
* Average: 28/8 = 3.5. As dead as [[spoiler:Blake]].

Then for [[spoiler:Vila Restal]].
* CoD: Surrounded, Overkill. 4
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: Either Dead & Buried or Left For Dead [[spoiler:(he fell differently than other members of the Seven when shot)]]. We will measure both. 4 or 1
* Reaction: [[spoiler:Blake is dead, everyone else is being shot up.]] Montage-level again. 4
* Last Words: Oh Crap-ish. 4
* Characterization: Protagonist. 1.
* When: Final episode. 4
* Came back: Never. 4
* Average: 29/8 & 26/8 = 3.625 OR 3.25. Average of Average is 3.4375. Less dead than either [[spoiler:Blake or Avon]], still more than likely incorporeal.

How about a few for fun, starting with [[spoiler:Oleg Gan]].
* Heroic Sacrifice to save the rest of the team. 3
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: Dead & [[spoiler:very definitely]] Buried. 4
* Reaction: He's Dead, Jim initially, [[spoiler:but the next episode was in part based on Blake trying to atone for his death]]. So, Montage-level. 4
* Last Words: [[spoiler:Crushed by a door and then the ceiling while warning everyone away.]] Famous Last Words & "Run, you fools!" combo. Give it a 3.
* Characterization: Protagonist. 1.
* When: Within the last five years of the show in-universe. 3
* Came back: Never. 4
* Average: 26/8 = 3.25. Less dead than expected. Still in no-hoper territory.

And what about [[spoiler:Cally]]?
* CoD: [[spoiler:Trapped in an underground base, it explodes, no-one goes through the rubble to check on her.]] No One Could Survive That! 2
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: The body is Never Found. 3
* Reaction: He's Dead, Jim. Hardly ever mentioned again after the episode and no montage-style stuff during it. 3
* Last Words: Yep. 3.
* Characterization: Protagonist. 1.
* When: Same year. 2
* Came back: Never. 4
* Average: 22/8 = 2.75. Surprisingly less likely to be dead [[spoiler:than most all of the other Seven (barring Orac of course). See you around, Cal]]!

Finally, [[spoiler:Jenna Stannis]].
* CoD: Apparently killed while [[spoiler:blockade running]] off-screen [[spoiler:between the Season 2 and Series finales]]. Sounds like a Bridge Drop to me. 4
* Genre: Anyone Can Die. 4
* Body Found: The body is Never Found. 3
* Reaction: He's Dead, Jim. Mentioned casually. 3
* No last words recorded, so we will skip this one.
* Characterization: Ex-protagonist, [[spoiler:disappeared for two seasons]]. Call it a Regular. 2.
* When: Within the last 5 years or so. 3
* Came back: Never. 4
* Average: 23/7 = 3.286. Around the same territory as [[spoiler:Gan and Vila]]; pretty much dead meat.

* Average: 21/7 = 3.

Vera Juarez, [[Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay series 4]]:
* Cause of Death: Burned alive. NobodyCanDie (literally), but that's a FateWorseThanDeath. Let's call it Overkill. 4
* Genre: NobodyCanDie, but given the nature of things, this section becomes non-applicable.

* Last Words: [[OhCrap Horrifying Screaming]].Character: DeathByOriginStory. 4

Alejandro's death in episode 2.20.
* Cause of death: [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Bridge Drop]] via a really, really stupid (and unarmed!) confrontation with last season's BigBad '''(4)'''.
* Genre: It ''used to be'' AnyoneCanDie, but several characters exhibit DeathIsCheap and can extend the favor '''(3)'''.
* Body: DeaderThanDead, and confirmed by a girl who can find anyone ''alive.'' '''(4)'''.
* Reaction: He was a third tier character and has had only his sister angsting over his death with an "ItsPersonal". '''(2)'''.
* Characterization: RedShirt from day one (apparently confirmed by the actor as well), only barely ''hinting'' at Mauve Shirt, it only got worse when he and his sister ran into Sylar, at which point he was the third wheel in a tertiary plotline. '''(4)'''.
* When did he die: Same Year, so '''(2)'''.
* Average: 19/6, Add it up and you get... '''3.16'''. Bye bye, Alejandro.

D.L. Hawkins' death in ''Four Months Ago''.
* Cause of Death: Actually managed to survive a HeroicSacrifice at the end
of Season 2.
* Cause: Killed without any warning by a villain
1, only introduced earlier that episode, so to be killed by some random goon in the middle of the TimeSkip to Season 2. Definitely DroppedABridgeOnHim. 4.
* Genre: The only As stated above, Season 1 was AnyoneCanDie, whereas Season 2 really likes to play around with DeathIsCheap. I give it a 3.
* Body: Dead and buried. DeaderThanDead. 4.
* Reaction: We get a GoryDiscretionShot to Niki's shocked face as D.L. gets shot in the chest, then we see Niki and Micah morning over his grave. I'd say HesDeadJim. 3.
* Characterization: A Series Regular, although the whole Niki arch was kind of tenuously related to the show's
main character to die plotline. I'd still give him a 2.
* When did he die: "Four Month Ago",
so far was Artie, and he was brought back via Disney Death less than five minutes of screentime later.Same Year. 2.
* The '''Average''': An even 3. D.L., we hardly knew ya...

Sylar's Death in "Dual"
* Cause of Death: Stabbed in the back of the head and left in a burning building. NoOneCouldSurviveThat '''2)'''
* Genre: For DL and Alejandro it might have been 3, but this is Sylar we're talking about '''(2)''' if not less
*
Body: We saw NeverFoundTheBody '''(3)'''
* Reaction: Claire and family watching the building burn, reassuring each other he's finally gone. '''(2.5)'''
* Characterization: Archvillain from the audience's point of view, Protagonist from the writer's. Either way '''(1)'''
* When did he die: Same Arc '''(1)'''
* Died and come back?: You could argue this back and forth but being impaled in season one and having his throat slit in season three should both count, so '''(2)'''
* '''Average''': 13.5/7 = '''1.92''' He showed up the next episode without even bothering to explain his survival. He's Sylar, he '''always''' comes back.
** ''He'' didn't explain. Noah Bennet said in a later episode that the fire melted the brain-impaling glass that [[GoodThingYouCanHeal kept him dead.]]

Daphne's death in ''"Cold Snap"''
* Cause of Death: Septic bullet wound. It was originally delivered when [[spoiler: she]] showed up to try and save the fugitives after the plane crash, so we'll call
it disinegrate.a HeroicSacrifice. '''(3)'''
* Genre: Normally Heroes borders on DeathIsCheap, but the recent Volume has been better about characters ''staying dead'', so KilledOffForReal. '''(3)'''
* Found the Body?: Died in [[spoiler: Matt Parkman's]] arms at the hospital. '''(4)'''
* Reaction: A flatlining heart-monitor told us HesDeadJim. '''(3)'''
* Characterization: Recurring Character and Love Interest, '''(3)'''
* When did [[spoiler: she]] die?: Same arc. '''(1)'''
* Died and came back?: Not yet. '''(4)'''
* '''Average''': 21/7 = '''3'''. When even the [[WordOfGod director]] says a character's [[KilledOffForReal gone for good]], you know they're not coming back.

Nathan's death in the season four finale.
* Cause of Death: Stupidly attacked ''Sylar'', and was shown with throat viciously cut on screen. Bridge drop, 4.
* Genre: Supposedly AnyoneCanDie, but for some DeathIsCheap, so 3.
* Body Found: Yes, and shown on screen.
4.
* Reaction: Artie seems sad, but we get nobody else's reaction.Considering the massive [[spoiler:MindRape of Sylar]] to account for it, possibly close to a montage. Otherwise, not dwelt upon much. 3.
* Last words: FinalSpeech. 3.
* Characterization: Archvillian. 1.
Protagonist, but also TheAtoner, so 2.
* When: Last season. 3.
* Come Back?: Not yet. 4.
* (4+2+4+3+3+1+3+4)/8=24/8=3. Since
Same year, nearly the "time" aspect of it will increase over the course of the next season, and, unlike Artie, there was no way for him to come back yet established, he might just be gone. If he does come back, it will almost definitely be because of H.G. Wells' time machine (it will be MacPhearson earlier in life, of course, but same guy).

Dr. Weir from ''Series/StargateAtlantis''
* Cause of Death: Redemption/heroic sacrifice (after being turned into a Replicator, she "destroyed" herself (and all her non-violent Replicator followers) because "Replicators are too dangerous to exist"), although since she stepped through a Stargate into space, ''technically'' her cause of death was [[SuicidalGotcha Jumping]]. I give her a '''3''' anyway.
* Genre: ''Stargate Atlantis'' has had ''many'' AnyoneCanDie moments, especially with regard to {{Mauve Shirt}}s and other supporting characters. Since they brought back ''Dr. Beckett'', however, the status of main characters has changed from Anyone Can Die to DisneyDeath. I give her a '''2'''.
* Body Found?: Her body's drifting in space, but since she's a Replicator, other than boredom that might not be that much of a setback. Definitely [[HumanPopsicle Frozen]]. '''2'''.
* Reaction: A lot of extremely sad expressions from the entire cast. [[HesDeadJim She's Dead Jim]]. '''3'''.
* Characterization: Was a main character with top billing, but as the civilian leader she wasn't part of the FiveManBand. I'd give her a '''1.5'''.
* When Did They Die?: Same Year. '''2'''.
* Died and Came Back?: First she was brought back as a clone, then in her final, final episode her original mind possessed the city's computer before downloading itself into a Replicator body. So she's done it twice. '''2'''.
* '''Average''' = '''2.21'''. It seems they could just dial the Stargate and pick her up if they ever need a friendly Replicator to run a mission for them. They could easily bring her back for a cameo in the final episode or even the DVD movie which is going to be the GrandFinale. Then again, they "killed" her off in the final season of the show, so it's entirely possible that was her send-off, and she'll stay dead (if that's true, her manner of demise is truly ridiculous).

The apparent death of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'''s semi-main antagonist, [[spoiler: Michael]], about 3/4ths of the way through the final season of the show.
* Cause Of Death: Thrown off the top floor of the Atlantis main tower. Of course, death by falling counts as [[SuicidalGotcha Jumping]] if we don't see the impact. '''1'''.
* Genre: Supposedly AnyoneCanDie, as they're been pretty free about bumping off [[MauveShirt Mauve Shirts]] on a regular basis, although with both Beckett and Weir back from the dead, the show's now 100% DisneyDeath when it comes to main characters. I'll split the difference and give it a '''3'''.
* Body Found?: Apparently not, as it's not mentioned at the end of the episode. They NeverFoundTheBody. '''3'''.
* Reaction: Not much, actually. The characters briefly discuss the galaxy being a safer place now that he's dead, but that's pretty much it. HesDeadJim. '''3'''.
* Characterization: Was pretty much the closest thing the series had to a BigBad, due to the lack of a central Wraith villain. If the Wraith = [[Series/DoctorWho the Daleks]],then [[spoiler: Michael]] = the Master. I'll put him down as an Archvillain. '''1'''.
* When Did They Die?: A couple episodes ago, so Same Arc. '''1'''.
* Died and Came Back?: On two occasions, the Atlantis team thought he was on a ship or planet they had just blown up. In both cases, they were wrong. Of course, both times the writers obviously left the door open for him to have escaped, something that's missing from his 1000-foot drop off a tall building. Still, back from the dead twice is back from the dead twice. '''2'''.
* Average = '''2'''. Maybe they'll bring him back in one of the DVD movies. With his Wraith HealingFactor, there's a MillionToOneChance he might have survived. And he might have had the foresight to clone himself, too, seeing as how he did it to Dr. Beckett.

Ford in Series/StargateAtlantis.
* Cause of death: NoOneCouldSurviveThat. It's acknowledged that such situations aren't final. '''2'''
* Genre: KilledOffForReal happens to many side-characters, or at least it did in SG-1. 3. However, characters such as Ford's season two status ''always'' die and ''always'' stay that way. So, ''should'' be 4, but let's go by the book. '''3'''
* Body: No. '''3'''
* Reaction: Doesn't quite fit any of the choices.
* Characterization: Ex-regular. '''2.5'''
* When: Last seen mid-season two. Season four just ended. '''2.5'''
* Died and returned: Last seen in situations that looked bad before, but never quite this bad. '''4'''
* 2+3+3+2.5+2.5+4= 17/6. Final death value: 2.833. Ford's chances of returning ''eventually'' aren't so bad. However, the writers seem to have forgotten him, which may prove more final than any pesky exploding ship.

[[spoiler: Cromartie]]'s recent "permanent" death in ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles.''
* Cause of Death: All the main characters get together and unload boxloads of bullets into him, and Cameron finally finishes him off with multiple armor-piercing shotgun blasts to the face (which is powerful enough to rip open part of his metal "skull" and expose the machinery inside). NoOneCouldSurviveThat (Except Ahnuld ''already'' did in ''[[Film/terminator2JudgmentDay T2]]''). Sarah also smashes his "chip", which (being essentially his brain) is about as permenant a death as you can get. '''2'''.
* Genre: A pretty DarkerandEdgier show, with lots of side characters being killed left and right (quite a lot of it done by the main characters). However, none of the main cast[=/=]FiveManBand have died (except for [[spoiler: Cromartie]] himself), so thus far it's been KilledOffForReal. '''3'''.
* Body Found?: Buried in the desert by the main characters. Sarah says she'll come back later with something to destroy it completely, but we never see her actually do so. '''4'''.
* Reaction: Everyone at the burial has an air of finality (and relief!). HesDeadJim. '''3'''.
* Characterization: Was apparently the main antagonist for most of the show's running (and even made the main cast title credits in Season 2), but now halfway through Season 2 they seem to have introduced an actual BigBad in the form of CorruptCorporateExecutive Catherine Weaver/the T-1001. So, I'd split the difference and give him a '''1.5'''.
* When Did They Die?: A couple episodes ago, so same arc. '''1'''.
* Died and Came Back?: Was decapitated by a particle beam rifle and considered destroyed, but pulled himself back together and came back for more. So, he's done it once. '''3'''.
* Average = '''2.5'''. I ''supposed'' there's an outside chance Cameron switched the chips around, and kept Cromartie's chip for herself while giving Sarah the chip she saved from several episodes back.
** Well, apparently Cromartie himself is dead after all, but his body is currently being used by ZeiraCorp as a mouthpiece for SKYNET.

Sha're, ''Stargate SG-1''
* Cause of Death: Was under control of a goa'uld and attacking Daniel, forcing Teal'c to kill her. I'll make it RedemptionEqualsDeath - '''3'''.
* Genre: Mostly KilledOffForReal. There explicitly exists a means of bringing someone back from the dead (sarcophagus), but the Good Guys avoid using it. Make it '''2.5'''.
* Body: [[DeaderThanDead Dead]] and [[MeaningfulFuneral Buried]]. '''4'''.
* Reaction: The makers even go to tease the audience by showing a means of her possible resurrection - and shatter it as Daniel's dream/hallucination. [[HesDeadJim She's Dead Jim]], and I am being generous. '''3'''.
* Characterisation: Loved one. '''4'''.
* When: Many, many seasons ago. '''3'''.
* Came back: Not really. '''4'''.
* Result: 3.357 - she's not going to return. (Though, the authors have opened the door to an AlternateUniverseFic - what if the dream were reality and vice vera?)

Susan Jacobs.
* Cause of Death: Redemption/heroic sacrifice (after being turned into a Replicator, she "destroyed" herself (and all taser shorted her non-violent Replicator followers) because "Replicators are too dangerous to exist"), although since she stepped through a Stargate into space, ''technically'' her cause of death was [[SuicidalGotcha Jumping]]. I give her a '''3''' anyway.
pacemaker: 4
* Genre: ''Stargate Atlantis'' has had ''many'' AnyoneCanDie moments, especially with regard to {{Mauve Shirt}}s and other supporting characters. Since they brought back ''Dr. Beckett'', however, the status of main characters has changed from Anyone Can Die to DisneyDeath. I give her a '''2'''.
Audience Expectation: Killed Off For Real: 3
* Body Found?: Her body's drifting in space, but since she's a Replicator, other than boredom that might not be that much of a setback. Definitely [[HumanPopsicle Frozen]]. '''2'''.
Found: Cremated: 4
* Reaction: A lot of extremely sad expressions Montage, plus horror from the entire cast. [[HesDeadJim She's Dead Jim]]. '''3'''.

year: 2
* Died and Came Back?: First come back?: Not yet: 4
* When did they die: Same Year: 1
* Final Score: 28/8=3.5 Seeing as
she was brought back as a clone, then in her final, final episode her original mind possessed the city's computer before downloading itself into a Replicator body. So cremated, she's done it twice. '''2'''.
* '''Average''' = '''2.21'''. It seems they could just dial the Stargate and pick her up if they ever need a friendly Replicator
likely to run a mission for them. They could easily bring her back for a cameo in the final episode or even the DVD movie which is going to be the GrandFinale. Then again, they "killed" her off in the final season of the show, so it's entirely possible that was her send-off, and she'll stay very dead (if that's true, her manner of demise is truly ridiculous).

The deadliest cause of all - actor wanted to leave the show, and his death by RoleEndingMisdemeanor. 4.
was VERY sudden. Dropped a Bridge on him. 4
* Audience Expectation: KilledOffForReal, arguably tipped over into AnyoneCanDie by this moment. 3.5
Genre: After a string of Killed Off for Real deaths spanning two seasons, it was already almost an Anyone Can Die show. This definitively made it so. 4
* Body Found?: And buried. 4.
Found: Dead and Buried, with a very moving funeral, albeit next season. 4
* Reaction: MeaningfulFuneral. 4.
When killed, his killer says a Bond One-Liner ([[spoiler:"They took my son, I'll take theirs"]]) that actually works two ways [[spoiler:considering he then steals Abel, Jax's son]]. 4

of all a team of protagonists, but had been going OutOfFocus as of late. He was arguably plucky comic-relief character. 4

Moriarty:
166... Sorry fanboys. Your only hope to see the good captain alive again is if by some miracle they greenlight a movie covering her maiden voyage. And we all know that's a crazy notion.
** [[Film/StarTrek Or IS it?]] (Although that's an AlternateContinuity. And even though it features the [[spoiler:original Spock]], the producers stated they discarded featuring the original Kirk because he died)

The Borg Queen (The [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]] death, not the First Contact one)
* Cause of death: [[spoiler:HoistByTheirOwnPetard Assimiliated a virus.]] 4.

* Reaction: None. 0
* Last Words: FinalSpeech. 3

* When did they die? SeasonFinale. Discounting one movie
* "Died" and Come Back? She gets killed in almost all of her appearances. 1
* Average: 2.25. Could potentially be brought back, although she probably won't appear in canon again in the Prime Universe.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:''Stargate'']]

Dr. Weir from ''Series/StargateAtlantis''
* Cause of Death: Shot himself to force Sherlock Redemption/heroic sacrifice (after being turned into a SadisticChoice - 4
Replicator, she "destroyed" herself (and all her non-violent Replicator followers) because "Replicators are too dangerous to exist"), although since she stepped through a Stargate into space, ''technically'' her cause of death was [[SuicidalGotcha Jumping]]. I give her a '''3''' anyway.
* Audience Expectation: Genre: ''Stargate Atlantis'' has had ''many'' AnyoneCanDie moments, especially with regard to {{Mauve Shirt}}s and other supporting characters. Since they brought back ''Dr. Beckett'', however, the status of main characters has changed from Anyone Can Die to DisneyDeath. I give her a '''2'''.
* Body Found?: Her body's drifting in space, but since she's a Replicator, other than boredom that might not be that much of a setback. Definitely [[HumanPopsicle Frozen]]. '''2'''.
* Reaction: A lot of extremely sad expressions from the entire cast. [[HesDeadJim She's Dead Jim]]. '''3'''.
* Characterization: Was a main character with top billing, but as the civilian leader she wasn't part of the FiveManBand. I'd give her a '''1.5'''.
* When Did They Die?: Same Year. '''2'''.
* Died and Came Back?: First she was brought back as a clone, then in her final, final episode her original mind possessed the city's computer before downloading itself into a Replicator body. So she's done it twice. '''2'''.
* '''Average''' = '''2.21'''. It seems they could just dial the Stargate and pick her up if they ever need a friendly Replicator to run a mission for them. They could easily bring her back for a cameo in the final episode or even the DVD movie which is going to be the GrandFinale. Then again, they "killed" her off in the final season of the show, so it's entirely possible that was her send-off, and she'll stay dead (if that's true, her manner of demise is truly ridiculous).

The apparent death of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'''s semi-main antagonist, Michael, about 3/4ths of the way through the final season of the show.
* Cause Of Death: Thrown off the top floor of the Atlantis main tower. Of course, death by falling counts as [[SuicidalGotcha Jumping]] if we don't see the impact. '''1'''.
* Genre: Supposedly AnyoneCanDie, as they're been pretty free about bumping off [[MauveShirt Mauve Shirts]] on a regular basis, although with both Beckett and Weir back from the dead, the show's now 100% DisneyDeath when it comes to main characters. I'll split the difference and give it a '''3'''.
* Body Found?: Apparently not, as it's not mentioned at the end of the episode. They NeverFoundTheBody. '''3'''.
* Reaction: Not much, actually. The characters briefly discuss the galaxy being a safer place now that he's dead, but that's pretty much it. HesDeadJim. '''3'''.
* Characterization: Was pretty much the closest thing the series had to a BigBad, due to the lack of a central Wraith villain. If the Wraith = [[Series/DoctorWho the Daleks]],then [[spoiler: Michael]] = the Master. I'll put him down as an Archvillain. '''1'''.
* When Did They Die?: A couple episodes ago, so Same Arc. '''1'''.
* Died and Came Back?: On two occasions, the Atlantis team thought he was on a ship or planet they had just blown up. In both cases, they were wrong. Of course, both times the writers obviously left the door open for him to have escaped, something that's missing from his 1000-foot drop off a tall building. Still, back from the dead twice is back from the dead twice. '''2'''.
* Average = '''2'''. Maybe they'll bring him back in one of the DVD movies. With his Wraith HealingFactor, there's a MillionToOneChance he might have survived. And he might have had the foresight to clone himself, too, seeing as how he did it to Dr. Beckett.

Ford in Series/StargateAtlantis.
* Cause of death: NoOneCouldSurviveThat. It's acknowledged that such situations aren't final. '''2'''
* Genre:
KilledOffForReal happens to many side-characters, or at least it did in SG-1. 3. However, characters such as Ford's season two status ''always'' die and ''always'' stay that way. So, ''should'' be 4, but let's go by the book. '''3'''
* Body: No. '''3'''
* Reaction: Doesn't quite fit any of the choices.
* Characterization: Ex-regular. '''2.5'''
* When: Last seen mid-season two. Season four just ended. '''2.5'''
* Died and returned: Last seen in situations that looked bad before, but never quite this bad. '''4'''
* 2+3+3+2.5+2.5+4= 17/6. Final death value: 2.833. Ford's chances of returning ''eventually'' aren't so bad. However, the writers seem to have forgotten him, which may prove more final than any pesky exploding ship.

Sha're in ''Stargate SG-1''
* Cause of Death: Was under control of a goa'uld and attacking Daniel, forcing Teal'c to kill her. I'll make it RedemptionEqualsDeath
- '''3'''.
* Genre: Mostly KilledOffForReal. There explicitly exists a means of bringing someone back from the dead (sarcophagus), but the Good Guys avoid using it. Make it '''2.5'''.
* Body: [[DeaderThanDead Dead]] and [[MeaningfulFuneral Buried]]. '''4'''.
* Reaction: The makers even go to tease the audience by showing a means of her possible resurrection - and shatter it as Daniel's dream/hallucination. [[HesDeadJim She's Dead Jim]], and I am being generous. '''3'''.
* Characterisation: Loved one. '''4'''.
* When: Many, many seasons ago. '''3'''.
* Came back: Not really. '''4'''.
* Result: 3.357 - she's not going to return. (Though, the authors have opened the door to an AlternateUniverseFic - what if the dream were reality and vice vera?)

[[folder:''Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles'']]

Cromartie's recent "permanent" death.
* Cause of Death: All the main characters get together and unload boxloads of bullets into him, and Cameron finally finishes him off with multiple armor-piercing shotgun blasts to the face (which is powerful enough to rip open part of his metal "skull" and expose the machinery inside). NoOneCouldSurviveThat (Except Ahnuld ''already'' did in ''[[Film/terminator2JudgmentDay T2]]''). Sarah also smashes his "chip", which (being essentially his brain) is about as permenant a death as you can get. '''2'''.
* Genre: A pretty DarkerandEdgier show, with lots of side characters being killed left and right (quite a lot of it done by the main characters). However, none of the main cast[=/=]FiveManBand have died (except for [[spoiler: Cromartie]] himself), so thus far it's been KilledOffForReal. '''3'''.
* Body Found?: Buried in the desert by the main characters. Sarah says she'll come back later with something to destroy it completely, but we never see her actually do so. '''4'''.
* Reaction: Everyone at the burial has an air of finality (and relief!). HesDeadJim. '''3'''.
* Characterization: Was apparently the main antagonist for most of the show's running (and even made the main cast title credits in Season 2), but now halfway through Season 2 they seem to have introduced an actual BigBad in the form of CorruptCorporateExecutive Catherine Weaver/the T-1001. So, I'd split the difference and give him a '''1.5'''.
* When Did They Die?: A couple episodes ago, so same arc. '''1'''.
* Died and Came Back?: Was decapitated by a particle beam rifle and considered destroyed, but pulled himself back together and came back for more. So, he's done it once. '''3'''.
* Average = '''2.5'''. I ''supposed'' there's an outside chance Cameron switched the chips around, and kept Cromartie's chip for herself while giving Sarah the chip she saved from several episodes back.
** Well, apparently Cromartie himself is dead after all, but his body is currently being used by ZeiraCorp as a mouthpiece for SKYNET.

Susan Jacobs:

last of the King of the Weevils.

Ianto Jones, series 3.
* Cause of death: [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Bridge'd]]. Infected with an alien virus. Alien ''junkie'' virus. 4
* Genre: AnyOneCanDie. Hell, two have already (see above). 4
* Body: DeaderThanDead. 4
* Reaction: HesDeadJim. 3
* Characterisation: Regular. 2
* When: this arc. ''Yesterday'', 1

Vera Juarez, [[Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay series 4]].

[[folder:''Warehouse 13'']]

James MacPhearson in the first episode of Season 2.
* Cause: Killed without any warning by a villain only introduced earlier that episode, so DroppedABridgeOnHim. 4.
* Genre: The only main character to die so far was Artie, and he was brought back via Disney Death less than five minutes of screentime later. 2.
* The Body: We saw it disinegrate. 4.
* Reaction: Artie seems sad, but we get nobody else's reaction. 3.
*
Last Words, essentially: 3
words: FinalSpeech. 3.
* Characterization: Recurring Archvillian. 1.
* When: Last season. 3.
* Come Back?: Not yet. 4.
* (4+2+4+3+3+1+3+4)/8=24/8=3. Since the "time" aspect of it will increase over the course of the next season, and, unlike Artie, there was no way for him to come back yet established, he might just be gone. If he does come back, it will almost definitely be because of H.G. Wells' time machine (it will be MacPhearson earlier in life, of course, but same guy).

S3 finale was quite a massacre of characters. Let's see, chronologically:

Jinx.
* Cause: sacrifice, YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness (3.5)
* Expectation: the series uses DisneyDeath a lot, however, by the end of the two-parter it's not so certain. (2.5)
* Body: at the morgue (3)
* Reaction: it's personal. Wow, [[spoiler:Claudia]] can be ''very'' scary. (2)
* Last words: a video message, (3)
* Characterization: regular in S3 (2)
* When: same arc (it's not over yet...), (1)
* Came back: not yet (4)
* 21/8='''2.625''', since [[spoiler:Claudia]] is hell-bent on resurrecting [[spoiler:him]], we will probably see [[spoiler:him]] again.

H.G. Welles.
* Cause: redemption, sacrifice (3)
* Expectation: the same (2.5)
* Body: atoms floating around (4)
* Reaction: between It's personal and He's Dead, Jim (2.5)
* Last words: 2
* Characterization: recurring (3)
* When: same arc (1)
* Came back: from death, nope. (4)
* 24/8='''3''', maybe [[spoiler:she]]'ll be back.

Mrs. Fredrick.
* Cause: bridge drop (4)
* Expectation: still 2.5
* Body: [[spoiler:shown her true age, insta-mummy]] (4)
* Reaction: nobody really liked [[spoiler:her]], He's dead, Jim (3)
* Last words: none (4)
*
Character: recurring (3)
* When: same arc (1)
* Came back: nope, but [[spoiler:avoided aging using her link to W13 for like 80 years]], 3.5
* 25/8 = '''3.125''', unlikely, even more so that [[spoiler:Claudia is destined to be the new caretaker]].

Currently, [[spoiler:Shirley]] from ''CodeGeass'' and [[spoiler:the real Caulder]] from ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin'' have scored 4, the highest possible. The latter is more notable by having 4 in ''every'' category instead of getting the [=CLAMP=] bonus that the former got. [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]] is the leader of the death-defying derby at 1.5, even beating WesternAnimation/SouthPark's Kenny. However, some of the later deaths in ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' could get scores lower than that. [[spoiler:Chloe Sullivan]]'s death in "Fracture" manages to get the perfect score of 1, but no one takes it seriously now that she had "died" about five times.

The show-runner has claimed he wanted us, in the gap between seasons, to ponder Starbuck's highly ambiguous post-mortem appearance. Is she an [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] style hallucination, or properly BackFromTheDead? Let's see if the algorithm can tell us.

[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]] is the leader of the death-defying derby at 1.5, even beating WesternAnimation/SouthPark's Kenny. However, some of the later deaths in ''{{Smallville}}'' could get scores lower than that. [[spoiler:Chloe Sullivan]]'s death in ''Fracture'' manages to get the perfect score of 1, but no one takes it seriously now that she had "died" about five times.
