This trope is supposed to be "item or spell which activates upon your death to revive you". The image is...a bottle. With a fairy. I'd say it's less than illustrative.
I'm a fairy in a bottle baby, come- come- come on and let me out.

That is JAFAAC btw. And not because "fairy" starts with "F".

Maybe a better image would be "Panel 1: Link collapsed on the floor, Panel 2: the fairy zipping around while Link gets back up"? I'm not sure where you'd find such a picture, but I'm certain if you can take screencaps of Wii games (or emulators) it should be simple to make. I do think that the Lo Z fairy would be the best to illustrate the concept (If not, maybe the Psychonauts Dream Fluffs activation message if such a thing exists), it's just that, as mentioned, the picture is Just a ball of light in a bottle and a caption.

(Before you ask, no, I don't have the required emulators for such a screencap, and I'm not likely to ever get them or games to play on them)

That is definitely just a face and a caption. My best idea for a replacement would be a screencap of the Reviver Seed from Pokémon Mystery Dungeon taking effect, which might need a "-[some high number of HP]" from a previous frame photoshopped on.

Perhaps some demonstration of the Reraise effect. I hesitate to suggest something with text, but something from Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon might work, since, as a Roguelike, it has a report of what happens

Damage to Chocobo: 66!
Chocobo has no more strength...
Raise spell brings Chocobo back to life!
I have a message from another time...
Depends what the image looks like.

I found this image while doing a GIS. You've got the PC laying down, his life bar at exactly 2499, the amount restored by the spell, it's got the stereotypical white feathers and sparkles of a life spell, and it says "Auto Life".

Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Clock is set (would've done it this morning but I didn't get on the computer).

Clock's up; locking for inactivity/lack of consensus. No action is to be taken based on this thread.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
