** Well, don't ''need'' to eat, but as pointed out when Roy died, not needing food doesn't mean he doesn't get to enjoy it. The bigger problem would be the fact that Atropals are [[WalkingWasteland Walking Wastelands]] and multiple living characters have gotten near [=MiTD=] without suffering any ill effects. Redcloak and his minions might be protected by some kind of shield against negative energy, as might O-Chul, but Haley and Belkar certainly aren't, and [=MiTD=] was found in a lush jungle. On top of this, Atropals are also intrinsically evil (undead status aside, they're AlwaysLawfulEvil outsiders, like devils), which makes it rather difficult for the TokenGoodTeammate that is the Monster in the Dark to be one. (Even if one wanted to argue that he was dropped on his head or something, an undead creature wouldn't be affected by that, and even if he was, he'd still default to "LawfulEvil without memories".)

[[WMG: Tarquin's death will be as belittling as possible...]]
He won't get a DeathByIrony, KarmicDeath, or even necessarily a [[DeathIsDramatic drama-filled]] death at all: he'll be [[KilledOffScreen killed off-panel,]] likely due to [[LifeWillKillYou something innocuous]] and nobody will be the wiser until well after it's happened. This will be before the knowledge that he was really in charge of the Empire of Blood really becomes widespread among the populace, and the few people who do have that information have no real reason to share it after his death, especially if they also know that he wants the fame. Meanwhile, he'll be going straight to LawfulEvil Hell, which just so happens to be where his son ([[OffingTheOffspring whom he coldly murdered]] [[NoSympathy and would not have any sympathy points with at all]]) and a certain now-very-pissed-off succubus reside, so once there, there's no way he's getting off easy. Given the nature of the comic, it wouldn't be surprising if Nale or Sabine even [[LampshadeHanging commented on the irony of it all.]]
* Of course, this being Tarquin, he'll also have a ThanatosGambit in place if he dies to somebody other than who he intends to have kill him, but he'll have overestimated his pull and it'll fail miserably.

The entire point of Tarquin's plan is that, if he is ever defeated, the story of his defeat will go down in history, with him as the BadAss [[FourStarBadass General]]. Which is already working, as [[FridgeBrilliance we are reading the story]], and we see him as a GenreSavvy BadAss [[FourStarBadass General]]. So the only way for his plan to be foiled is for him to lose that respect we currently have for him. He will be OutGambitted, OvershadowedByAwesome, and swallow an IdiotBall, leaving him a complete failure of a villain by the time anyone bothers to kill him.

Given how Resurrection is easy if you have a body and spellcaster's desire to have ultimate power. How come no living fighter know the counterspell technique if you can raise or talk to death to teach it? Because wizards killed and destroyed fighters living body and made sure people won't know who possessed the feat. Being scholar they could have known how to erased informations from fighter's college and history records.

V has already expresed interest in redemption,and it's possible that some opportunity resolving the last gate, the snarl and Xykon might present it'self, and that V would somehow be able to use magic to do it, (perhaps some self destruct explosive rune spell powerful enough to do the job). V might realize in the moment that the best plan does't include V's survival, and has the best chance of saving the world, thus redeeming Vaarsuvius for V's mistake.

Between the oracle's clear hints that Belkar will die, and the tendency of main characters who don't know feather fall to die from falling long distances, Belkar will most likely die from the fall. But his attempt at killing the vampire (who ultimately is trying to end the world.)combined with his character development will be just enough to tip the scales into him being allowed into the Chaotic Good afterlife.

Elan tried to get Banjo into the Northern Pantheon, and almost succeeded. If he shows up and tries again, they gods could hold a quick vote and allow Banjo into the pantheon.

[[WMG: Right-Eye's daughter will reappear at some point]]
Why else would Start of Darkness explicitly discuss her survival?
Maybe she's an adventurer in her own right (it's implied she was [[RaisedByOrcs raised by humans]], after all) or maybe she just really hates Xykon, but at some point she'll appear in the main strip. If she's on the side of the heroes, she might even cause Uncle Redcloak to have a HeelFaceTurn.
Alternatively, she'll be a villain - if Team Evil doesn't get control of the Gate, her family will have died for nothing...

Although she believed herself to be LawfulGood, the fact that she killed Shojo, began acting under her own code instead of actual laws, and was generally a terrible person, means that she wasn't particularly lawful or good by the end of her life. Eugene Greenhilt is in line for the Lawful Good afterlife primarily because he committed lawful good acts rather than because he cared about staying true to his alignment, and these two things apparently have the same effect, making him appear properly Lawful Good in the eyes of the CelestialBureaucracy. Since Miko tried so hard to be LG that she almost hit the other extreme (that extreme being CE), then for all intents and purposes she will be considered as Chaotic Evil (or TrueNeutral, at best), especially since she died unredeemed and post-death Alignment shifts don't appear to count for anything.

Possibly as a result of RulesLawyer-ing and/or ExactWords. "I agreed I would consult the dwarven heads. I dinnae say I'd follow them blindly."
