It'd be nice if Only Mostly Dead
, Not Quite Dead
, and Staying Alive
had pictures to help distinguish them. This picture◊
comes from Asura's Wrath
centuries after the character fell into lava. He's about to make an Unexplained Recovery
EDIT 1: On second thought, yeah it really does just look like lava, a shame they didn't use the usual texture. There's a ton of
Lazarus paintings, how about either of the first two on this page?
EDIT 2: And now I know Lazarus was dead instead of Only Mostly Dead... in that case, Zero from the Mega Man X series has had this happen at least twice, three if you count the transition to the Mega Man Zero games.

I know the scene you're talking about, and its a good example, but I can't see it in that pic.
Another Wizard boy
That image looks like a volcano with a lava flow. Way off what the trope is about.
No, the other one.
I don't see anything either. I could guess, but even that would be weak.
Add me to the group that can't see jack in that picture.
"Darkness is light's light of darkness as a dark farewell to dark lightness."
+1 for "pic says nothing about the trope in and of itself".
Simmer Down and Pucker Up
I can't even tell what that is, let alone how it illustrates the trope.
"Polite life will fill you full of cancer." - Iggy Pop
"I've seen the future, brother, it is murder." -Leonard Cohen
Don't think Lazarus was an example. He was dead dead and he came back from the dead. Not Only Mostly Dead
I thought it aint necessarily so
, but it makes more sense that it'd be foreshadowing
Maybe third times the charm, how about Zero from Mega Man X?
In uffish thought
He just looks dead to me.
