Should We Can Rebuild Him be mentioned as a related trope, or does that one usually presume the person to be "rebuilt" isn't quite dead enough to qualify for this trope?

  • Often inverted in Super Sentai and Kamen Rider teamup movies, which often feature resurrected villains. Said villains will usually die with one or two regular finishers, even if it took an episode-long fight to kill them originally.

This is mostly a general example, which isn't permitted. Could someone familiar with the work rewrite the part about Doras and put it in?

  • Advertisements for Eveready's "Renewal" line of rechargeable alkaline batteries had this line. That they were rechargeable alkaline batteries was their main selling point; up to then, rechargeable batteries used nickel and cadmium.

I think this one's a bit of a shoehorn. If anything, rechargeables lose a fractional bit of power each time; that's why they eventually wear out. I can see why them being alkaline being pushed, though; some things, like the first couple generations of Gameboys, didn't/don't like to play nice with nickel-cadmium rechargeables. At best, they won't even work.

The current page quote isn't an example, is it? I think Obi-Wan meant that his death would give Luke greater resolve (as indeed it did), not this trope.

Can someone explain to me what in the world is going on with the picture? Maybe what series it is from?
