Follow TV Tropes
following Fighteer in the "Is this an example" thread, when i questioned this example some time ago, if the character actually dies, this not counts as Disney Death.
Why, in every trope that says "Unmarked spoilers" at the beginning, everyone marks the spoilers anyway? It makes no sense!
I propose we resplit this article. There used to be a Trope, back before new Stock Phrases were outlawed called " I thought you were dead" this now potholes to Disney death.
My main gripe is that Disney death seems to imply that 1) the character was dead and came back, or 2) it was assumed by everyone (often times audience included) that the character was dead. So what about when the Audience knows the character wasn't dead, but characters do? OR when the character was never dead in the first place? some fit into the fake Kill scare, but most don't. they don't quite fit here either( such as Sage's Mother in The Platform)
Anyone else agree? where might I go about pitching this to a larger group? I tried making a new ykttw, but since it's a stock phrase, even one that you can still find as a link back to disney death.....
A Disney Death is meant to mislead you. Jesus quite explicitly said he would come back. If your didn't believe him your not the Books' target audience, at least not yet.
What about Sherlock Holmes?
I'm not overly worried about spoilers, since it's over 100 years old at this point, but the stories end with Holmes dying and there was a publication gap of about 9 years or so, from memory, before a set of new stories in which Holmes appeared once more and explained where he had been and how he hadn't really died at all.
Surely that deserves to be included in this article?
I'm absolutely certain I included this example years ago. Which means it was removed by someone.
