On the subject of the Master, I always enjoyed how they handled this problem when the wonderful Anthony Ainley was playing the part in the 80s. He would get killed, definitively, at the end of every encounter with Peter Davison or Colin Baker, and then he'd turn up at the start of the next Master story, with roughly this explanation: 'I escaped!' Suits me! I'm fine with that! Supervillains don't die, do they? So I wouldn't trust anything about that character's ability to lie down and stop breathing.

There’s a chase through the caverns that culminates at what’s described as a “bottomless pit,” with Catwoman attempting to jump it rather than give herself up to the law. Alas, she’s not quite as nimble as her namesake. Despite Batman’s best efforts to keep her from falling in, Catwoman refuses to let go of her loot, plunging downwards to an apparent death. It’s not, of course. Catwoman, and Newmar, will eventually return in Season 2 for an episode where she’ll try to murder the Dynamic Duo by cooking them on an oversized griddle. For now, though, it seems like a bitter end, done in by her own greed.

After a brief aside about Catwoman potentially having nine lives – something that would explain her tendency to show up unharmed after falling from great heights – it’s back to Wayne Manor for a round of quadruple-decker chess, where even Alfred and Dick combined aren’t enough to beat Bruce.
Chris Sims on Batman, "Better Luck Next Time"

You're probably wondering why I'm still talking about LaCroix. Because you might also recall me mentioning that, by the end of both pilots, as he was pretty definitely dead as shit. Well, that's just fine: Because with flashbacks, you don't need a character to be alive to keep them on board! ...except yeah, he's totally still alive for some reason. I hope that's a satisfactory enough explanation for you, because that's all they ever give us. idk.

Kevin: Into the Warp Zone! It's too dangerous to finish her off!
Nostalgia Critic: We're contractually obligated to keep stalling for three more seasons!

Jay: Of course, the overall stakes for this match are garbage because Triple H and Steph are actually in power, so whatever happens—much like Vince Mcmahon—they'll just leave for a bit and then come back under a new kayfabe job title with the same power.
Maffew: With mustaches and fake glasses.

Needless to say, this is the same plot as Mario Galaxy 1 with zero acknowledgment of continuity. No little mushroom person at any point says, 'Didn't this exact same thing happen not however long ago? Say, did anyone remember to press charges on Bowser last time he pulled this? Put in him prison or something? What exactly was stopping him turning around and pulling the same shit the moment Mario and the Princess were distracted with each other's 'cakes'? See, people, this is why we need to introduce a constitutional monarchy!'

Like can we please have even a token explanation for why the Warlock is alive!? This guy gets thoroughly disintegrated and he just pops up at the house in this movie like ‘whatev‘. It’s bad when you can’t even be bothered to come up with a bullshit excuse. It’s also bad when Julian Sands is too good for your sequel and you have to get Bruce Payne to stand in for you.

"When it's your head they wanna sever
And your blood they want to shed,


You know you're gonna live forever
If everybody wants you dead!
Mister Burns, "A High to be Loathed", The Simpsons

You can't keep down the clown.

Bullets don't seem to have much of an effect on me, darlin'.
J.R. Ewing, Dallas

I've got more lives than I do arms!
Ultros the octopus, Final Fantasy VI

You just couldn't let me go, could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You truly are incorruptible, aren't you, huh? You won't kill me, outta some misplaced sense of self-righteousness... and I won't kill you, because you're just too much fun! I think you and I are destined to do this forever.

I am very difficult to kill. You should already know that.
Davros, Doctor Who, "Resurrection of the Daleks"

Oh yes, he (Davros) survived. People like him and me don't know any different.
The Sixth Doctor, Big Finish Doctor Who, "Davros"

They survived. They always survive, while I lose everything.
The Tenth Doctor, Doctor Who, "Daleks in Manhattan"

Wesker! You are alive.
Chris Redfield, Resident Evil 5

Oh who cares? I've been blown up, thrown down smokestacks, fed to sharks; I'm the Joker! I always survive!

Joker: I killed your girlfriend, poisoned Gotham and hell, it's not even breakfast! But so what? We all know you'll save me.
Batman: Every decision you've ever made ends with death and misery. People die. I stop you. You'll just break out and do it again.
Joker: Think of it as a running gag!

I'll be back! I always come back! (groans) But dying is such a bitch.
Chucky, Bride of Chucky

Kevin: I thought Vilgax was dead.
Ben: Which time?
The Ultimate Enemy Part 1 Ben 10: Ultimate Alien

Vilgax: Is this the thanks I get? After all, I am the reason you have the Omnitrix in the first place!
Ben: Which you then tried to steal, which began a long tradition of me whipping your butt!
Vilgax: It... No it didn't!
Ben: Yeah, you're right... o, except for that time I kicked you out into space! And that ''other'' time I kicked you out into space? And of that arena ? O, and we got blown up in the ocean... Do you see there is a pattern forming here?
Vilgax: O, yes I do... you have never truly defeated me, because you don't have the guts!
Vilgax Must Croak, Ben 10: Omniverse
