If this exists, I'm sorry. I can't find it.

This trope is for when a character in a work becomes Dead for Real, and it affects the plot and other characters in a major way, but it ends up causing a wall-banger, because other characters in the work have the power of resurrection.

Examples:

- Shaman King. Multiple characters can resurrect, and many of the characters have died and come back at some point. Yet how many characters use the death of a loved one as motivation?

- Neverwinter Nights. Why did the paladin sell her soul to evil in order to destroy the city, instead of just resurrecting her boyfriend?

- Final Fantasy 7. The ultimate example. JUST USE A PHOENIX DOWN ON AERIS.
