This trope refers to a very specific plot, often seen in ancient epics. In it, two heroes are intensely close friends, often to a suspicious degree. Unfortunately, the one who's not the main character dies during the course of the story.

Its important to note that
1.) The two cannot just be friends or acquaintances. They have to be REALLY close. And
2.) The supporting character's death needs to be a huge turning point for both the story and the other hero.

As a Death Trope, all Spoilers will be unmarked ahead. Beware.
