What the hell is this trope about? There's too much Discworld Death related rhetoric and too little direct explaining what this trope represents. That the male dies and female lead no?

I'm pretty sure it's when the love interest, usually male, dies just so that the remaining partner can show how strong they are on their own. Though the last bit was clearer on explaining that before it turned into a paragraph of 'it's not as bad as other pointless death tropes because it usually happens to a male'.

...Come to think, the whole last paragraph seems to be a large rant on the subject that twists the trope into something bizarrely specific. Does anyone else remember when that used to be one sentence?

The last paragraph is less a rant on the subject and more a twist on the usual "Related tropes include..." paragraph that ends most article descriptions.

But yes, the trope is basically when the male lead dies and the female lead lives.

FWIW, I understood perfectly well what the trope is about, and loved the way it's written.

Um, what is this trope in English?

I fixed the punctuation problems from the old formatting swap- or were you complaining about the non-traditional style the article is written in?
