This trope only counts for works where the main cast is Killed Off for Real, right? This trope seems to me like a literal, work-with-a-final-body-count-of-zero-type deal, and adding examples that cover temporary deaths seem to misuse it.

I ask because I'm seriously considering deleting the Homestuck example. And maybe the Happy Tree Friends example.

I think that this trope is inappropriately potholed very often throughout the site.

Can we list Metallica's seminal album as the trope namer?

I seem to be unable to start a Trope Repair Shop thread, so I post it here.

According to the definition of this trope, all main characters should die. However, many examples go by "Every main characters die, except...", then list the most important characters of the work. This should be cleaned up. Either the definition should mention that it is possible that a few main characters survive, or these examples should be removed.

Yeah, i see alot of examples where there is still main characters alive. Also see alot of people using it wrong, think i once saw someone using it like "The Big Bads goal is this" which is completly wrong. Think it should be renamed to Everybody Dies or something like that. And the definition changed.
