[[folder: Sorting Algorithm Of Deadness ]]


Using the scientifically '''''Infallible''''' power of the SortingAlgorithmOfDeadness, who do you think is the next in line for being brought back from the great Bus in the sky?

To use the Algorithm, simply add the Column's "Death Value", and divide by the number of applicable rows.

If the character hasn't died yet (but seems likely to), see SortingAlgorithmOfMortality. All of this is trumped by the FirstLawOfResurrection.

Currently, [[spoiler:Shirley]] from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' and [[spoiler:the real Caulder]] from ''AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin'' have scored 4, the highest possible. The latter is more notable by having 4 in ''every'' category instead of getting the [=CLAMP=] bonus that the former got. No characters have got the lowest possible score of 1 yet, but [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]] is the leader of the death-defying derby at 1.5, even beating WesternAnimation/SouthPark's Kenny.

----

'''Baseline Example: The death of {{Superman}}.'''
* Cause: HeroicSacrifice, so he's not coming back from that too quickly, or the sacrifice will be cheapened. 3.
* Genre: It's a comic book, so DeathIsCheap. 1.
* The Body: DeaderThanDead, a PietaPlagiarism too for supes sake! So no chance of FakingTheDead. 4.
* Reaction: ReallyDeadMontage, uh-oh. 4.
* Characterization: Protagonist. 1.
* When did he die: Same year, so 2.
* Come Back?: This was a first, so 4.
* Average: So add it up... we get a pretty high score, 19! Since it's not a videogame, divide by 7, and we get... 19/7 = 2.7, meaning supes isn't coming back for at least a few months, maybe even years. In actuality the ''Death Of Superman'' happened in January 1993 and he came back some time before May 1994.

----

'''Now let's make a prediction with the recent death of Franchise/{{Batman}} in FinalCrisis.'''
* Cause: HeroicSacrifice, give or take. 3.
* Genre: Comic book, so DeathIsCheap. 1.
* The Body: [[DeaderThanDead Dead and buried]], but it's a little more complicated. Still, it's a 4.
* Reaction: [[HesDeadJim He's Dead Clark]], plus "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" probably counts as a ReallyDeadMontage. 3.5.
* Last Words: "[[FamousLastWords Try Me]]." 3.
* Characterization: It's [[MemeticMutation The Goddamn Batman]], people. 1.
* When did he die: Same year, so 2.
* Come Back?: This would be the first time, so 4.
* Average: 21.5/8= 2.7. A semi-high score, and DC seems to be sticking to this one for a while. Still, he'll definitely be back, likely before the end of 2010 at the latest.

'''CiemWebcomicSeries'''

Candi Levens, at least, by the ''Ciem Tomorrow'' story arc:
* Cause of death: Beheaded. (Twice!) After being BroughtDownToNormal and captured. Wasn't really a HeroicSacrifice, so counts more as a bridge being dropped - 4.
* Genre: AnyoneCanDie. Granted, the first time, it turned out to be [[spoiler: an illusion created by another prisoner after stopping time, so only a projection of Candi provided Kolumn with the {{Gorn}} he sought from her demise.]] Second time, there were no [[spoiler: illusionists]] around to get involved, so the death is played much more straight. In the Gerosha universe, precious few characters ever get truly resurrected. - 4.
* Body found: [[spoiler: It was all just an illusion]] the first time. The second time, she was dead and buried - [[spoiler: with her head still missing, since the Hebbleskin Gang had already made her skull a museum exhibit along with the skulls of her three (also decapitated) sisters]]. - About a 3.5.
* Reaction:
** First time: Kolumn is ecstatic; Dolly declares that ItsPersonal and nearly forfeits her soul to the [[AIIsACrapshoot Earwig suit helmet AI]] just to get revenge.
** Second time: ItsPersonal! Dana is forced to keep her eyelids open and watch as her mother is beheaded right in front of her! And ''then'', they try to kill Dana ''in the exact same manner'' on ''the exact same block'' with ''the exact same blade'', without even bothering to clean up first. - 2
* Characterization: Protagonist in ''Ciem 3''. Dana's mother during the ''Ciem Tomorrow'' arc. Median value of 2.5.
* When:
** First time, [[spoiler: She was saved at the last possible second by a [[DeusExMachina space-time manipulator]], and replaced with an illusion.]] That happens ''during'' ''Ciem 3'', so same arc, so 1.
** Second time around, shortly before setting of the proposed series proper. We'll call this a 2, for a score of 1.5 for When.
* Died and Came Back: Her first death was [[spoiler: just an illusion]], so she got better. Pushes the second one definitely into the direction of a 4.
* Average score: 2.375. She may have narrowly avoided fulfilling Arfaasian prophecy the first time around due to being [[ContractualImmortality necessary to let live]] so Dana could be born after the ''Ciem 3'' arc. But once Dana was clearly ready to take over the franchise, her mother lost her ContractualImmortality and became quite dead. On the other hand, if the hands of Heaven allow it, Phaelite AppliedPhlebotinum could drag her soul back into her body. Still, they'd need to recover the head and reattach it to truly bring Candi back.

By the ''Ciem Tomorrow'' arc, her sisters are all pretty much DeaderThanDisco, with an average score of about 3.375.

The end of the To Thine Own Self arc of GeneralProtectionFault featured a few deaths that are up in the air:

[[spoiler:The Gamester]]

Kubota in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''
* Cause of death: Does being disintegrated and haveing your ashes blown away count as a bridge drop? I say yes. 4
* Audience Expectation: The afterlife is literally a revolving door. 1
* Body found?: Deader than dead. 4
* LastWords : KilledMidSentence - 4
* Reaction?: HesDeadJim best fits. 3
* Characterization?: Main villan of an arc, so regular. 2
* When did he die?: This arc. 1
* Ever died and come back?: No. 4
* '''Total:''' 23/8 = 2.875. Incorporeal undead, ''at best''.

For comparison Roy, of the same (who it is widely accepted will come back):
* Cause of death: I think a meteor swarm followed by that kind of drop qualifies as "no one could survive that". 2
* Audience Expectation: Death is VERY cheap 1
* Body found: Dead and now turned into a golem 4
* LastWords: KilledMidSentence - 4
* Reaction: I think this counts as a 3
* Characterization: Protagonist, so 1
* When did they die: Same year (in-comic time at any rate), so 2
* That gives us 17/7 = 2.4. Given he's been dead for the equivalent of a season I'd say fairly accurate.
** [[spoiler:He's back]].

Lord Shojo:
* Cause of death: Nearly bisected. 2

[[spoiler:Miho]] in Webcomic/MegaTokyo.
* Cause of death: NoOneCouldSurviveThat. A lot of circumstantial evidence but we never saw the impact. '''2'''
* Genre: DeathIsCheap or DisneyDeath. Ed has come back dozens of times, but always as a running joke. '''1.5'''
* Body: No. '''3'''
* Nobody has reacted, so I'll skip this line.
** Incorrect: check the page after the one on which said apparent death occurred.
* Characterization: Can make a good case for being the main character. '''1'''
* When: Yesterday. '''1'''
* 8.5 / 5 is 1.7. Seems the only question is ''how'' will she come back.

Mike from ''Webcomic/CollegeRoomiesFromHell'':

* Characterization: Major antagonist, call it 2.
* When did they die: Same (very long!) arc - 1
* Died and come back: Very likely, given the elaborate scars on his body and the milieu, but not explicitly stated. Call it a 3 at the ''very'' highest.
* Result: 12 / 7 = 1.7 (at the most). Okay, who thinks he's dead? Yeah, didn't think so either.
