Suggestion: Only Mostly Dead get usage counts

Attempt #2 at getting a pic for this, also could use pics on Staying Alive and No One Should Survive That to help distinguish them.

Looks dead to me. Nothing to indicate he's actually alive or coming back from the dead.

[up][up] That didn't get any bites in the last thread, either.

Kneel.
Nope.
Stay awesome, people.
It's a robot. Robots don't die. It's not really even broken all that much, it's just missing an arm and helmet-spike.

No, the other one.
Robots do die, on occasion. Depends on the 'verse. That needs to be clear, though, which it isn't.

Yeah, I am afraid I need to agree with the chorus - the suggestion doesn't really work.

Not sure if the coffin is obvious enough.

rez @ next town k thx

[up] I'll go for it for the humor value and lack of anything better.

No, the other one.
Considering the trouble of any kind of serious example, that works. And it does sort of illustrate the trope.

That looks far more like the trope (funny aspect aside). Put it up.

In uffish thought
Would it be confused with Not Quite Dead? If not, I'm good with it.

I feel Not Quite Dead is a lot more stealthy.

OP's image doesn't work. If it was from X1, Zero did essentially die, he just got put back together again in X2. If it was from X5, Zero did die from that too, but they put him back together again for X6.

One or two more votes for the coffin pic/caption and we can run with it.
Definitely not a weirdo
In that case, I'll add a vote. It looks good, and illustrates the trope well.

Done, potholed, and tagged. I'm not marking the caption as being selected, but I wouldn't worry with it unless you've got a good idea for a replacement. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
