Quotes: Killed Off for Real
"No one stays dead except Bucky, Jason Todd and Uncle Ben."
— An old comic book mantra. Not long after it came into existence, they resurrected Bucky and Jason Todd anyway. Uncle Ben is still dead. Until they brought him back in the Ultimate Universe. Then they killed him again, so no biggie.

Thunderbolt: So, how do I make my shockingly unexpected and triumphant return?
Lightning: You don't.
Thunderbolt: What do you mean, I don't?
Lightning: You don't make a shockingly unexpected and triumphant return. You die. You're dead. You never come back.
Thunderbolt: N-not even for a Reunion Show?
Lightning: Not even for a cameo in the remake.
101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure (lampshading/parodying the Disney Death trope)

"YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS ARE DEAD. GAME OVER." It's priceless. Like, I can't believe it. Isn't that a mean thing to say to kids? Nobody ever dies in Nintendo. They are either "defeated" or they turn into an item and like float away. But here comes a game like Friday the 13th that just cuts the bullshit, shows some balls, comes flat out and says, "You're fucking dead. And your friends too."
The Angry Video Game Nerd on the NES game's infamous Game Over screen.
