Death Tropes

There is one who remembers the way to your door:
Life you may evade, but Death you shall not.
You shall not deny the Stranger.
T. S. Eliot, Choruses From The Rock

Character Death is a major event in stories. No, no... it is a really big deal. Really. Except when it isn't.

Obviously, this trope will lead to Spoiler central, so, due to the nature of these tropes, the spoilers are unmarked to avoid having to highlight them constantly.

Contrast with Birth Tropes.

See also Funerals.
