'''Basic Trope''': A character appears to have died, but is later revealed to be alive.
* '''Straight''': Walter performs a HeroicSacrifice so that Lilly can escape the CollapsingLair. However, he was saved at the last second by a pixie [[LaserGuidedKarma they had helped earlier]].
** Walter gets turned into a fine red mist courtesy of [[BigBad Emperor Evulz]], only to spontaneously develop the power to heal FromASingleCell.
* '''Downplayed''': ???
* '''Justified''': DeathIsCheap because Walter had previously [[CloningGambit created a copy]] of himself with [[BrainUploading all his memories]] [[CrazyPrepared in case of such an event.]]
** Lilly and Walter escape the collapsing lair, and just as it seems that all is well [[DownerEnding the monster grabs Walter by the ankles and drags him down.]] NoOneCouldSurviveThat.
** Lilly tries to resurrect Walter after he meets an unfortunate end, but epically fails.
** Lilly is overjoyed that Walter is NotQuiteDead, except... why are his eyes different? Oh no! It's Emperor Evulz using his ShapeShifting to pretend to be Walter!
** Alternatively, Walter seems to be dead, only to turn out alive... and then he dies anyway.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** Then the real Walter appears and beats up the shapeshifted Evulz.
** It turns out that it wasn't Walter who died, but [[OpeningACanOfClones a clone of him]] that was programmed to believe it was the original. Once he realizes what's going on, he creates a new, non-[[CloneDegeneration degenerated]] clone.
* '''Parodied''': Walter dies at the end of every episode, only to come back unharmed. He even has an intimate knowledge of five different afterlives because of it.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Walter survived the gun shot, but just barely, except it was poison tipped. However, Lilly administers the antidote [[AntidoteEffect just in time]], allowing Walter to survive the poison... only for both to realize Walter has lost too much blood, as [[DiedInYourArmsTonight he dies in her arms.]]
* '''Averted''': Walter dies in a very definitive way, with [[SortingAlgorithmOfDeadness no ground for misinterpretation]].
* '''Enforced''': It's a children's movie, so everyone who dies (not including the bad necessarily) comes back later.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Golly gee Walter, you never seem to [[NeverSayDie get ki]]-- hurt! You must win the lottery every time you buy a ticket, you're so lucky!"
** Walter knows he's going to die, but to keep Lilly from losing hope he acts as though he'll come back later.
** Alternately, he [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall notes that]] in stories like this, the brave character nobly sacrificing himself usually turns up fine later, and wouldn't it be a shame if the MoralGuardians found out otherwise?
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': Walter [[DeathSeeker wants to die]] for whatever reason, and purposely goes out with a bang to make sure the threat is taken care of and he doesn't come back.
* '''Discussed''': "Walter, we don't live in one of your children's stories where no one ever dies! If you do something reckless or stupid to be heroic, you'll really die!"
* '''Conversed''': "You'd think that with everyone turning up alive or being resurrected, no one would ever be afraid of death."
* '''Deconstructed''': Lilly becomes overly protective of Walter, who in turn has a nervous crisis over having been very close to permanently dying.
* '''Reconstructed''': TheGrimReaper takes note of the imbalance in [[YouCantFightFate fates books]], and demands [[EquivalentExchange a life for a life.]]
(brushes self off) Ha HA! It'll take more than [[DroppedABridgeOnHim a measly collapsing bridge]] to get rid of the DisneyDeath page!
