Because I keep using Heroic BSOD
as the closest equivalent, when it's two very different things.
Flavors include: Put on a Bus
, soap opera coma, prelude to Killed Off for Real
(technically, hardly anyone in a come in fiction dies before a brief, tearful awakening and Final Speech
). Can be caused with the same convenient ease of a Laser-Guided Amnesia
or rock to the head. Helps as a way for the hero to end a villains reign without losing their "no killing" track record. Also, very rarely permanent.
