Is there a trope where a character is mortally wounded and another character comforts the character as he slips away?

You might want to ask in the Trope Finder.

Is there a trope for something like post-climax-death, where the writers kill off someone after everything is already over, presumably for cheap drama or because happy endings aren't artsy enough? examples being [spoiler]Nia in TTGL or the Anna in Van Helsing?

I'm looking for a certain trope. It's where a certain character dies, and another somehow senses it.

Help! Seeking ephemeral life trope, e.g., the butterflies in Karel Čapek's ‘The Insect Play or The Life of the Insects’ & Thunder Cats 2011 Episode 4 - 'Song of the Petalars,'

It already has a page image, you know.

Isn't the spoiler policy on Death tropes a bit backwards, shouldn't these be the one page that are completely spoilered, instead of having none at all.

I'm very spoiler-sensitive, but I don't mind pages of works not having spoilers marked because it's expected that you're looking for a deeper analysis of the work. However, there are pages such as these which I will never be able to read because I might accidentally read the wrong line and spoil a whole series.

Death tropes should at least spoiler names; seeing a character's name on a page spoils any work. The only way you're totally safe is if you've read and seen and played everything you ever intend to. Otherwise, you could easily be screwed. There will always be the problem of a work being on a page in the first place being a spoiler, and that's unavoidable, but the names and possibly other details should be spoilered.

Death Is Just Human? Are there any tropes of Death (the entity) being a caring, emotionally sensitive individual?
