Drake revives Bob after being defeated by the other heroes.
Only to die by his second encounter with him.
Alternately Drake turns around to finish the job.
Parodied: Drake's mansion is decorated with the heads of all the heroes he has slain, just as if they were hunting trophies. And he loves telling the stories of each one of them as if he was talking about fishing trips!
Zig Zagged: Drake defeats and kills Charlie, but he is easily defeated and driven away by Bob. But Bob just got lucky and Drake stomps him in their next encounter... only for Drake to be killed off by Alice.
