Basic trope: Something bad happens to a character the Player got attached to.

  • Straight: Emperor Evulz kills Alex's little sister, Alexis, whom the player was getting feelings for.
  • Exaggerated: Emperor Evulz tricks The Player into killing Alexis.
    • Emperor Evulz brainwashed Alexis so she didn't realize she was fighting Alex until after the Boss Battle...and now she's bleeding very badly...
  • Downplayed: Emperor Evulz captures Alexis and tortures her in front of the player before taking her to his castle.
  • Justified: The game makers want The Player to *want* to kill Evulz. It's worked.
  • Inverted: ???
  • Subverted: Emperor Evulz's energy blast hurt Alexis, but she's still alive.
  • Double Subverted: But only for a few seconds, at which point Bob finishes her off without even hesitating.
  • Parodied: ???
  • Deconstructed: The death of Alexis makes The Player stop playing the game.
  • Reconstructed: The Player is revitalized by anger to play the game and, hopefully, rip Emperor Evulz in half.
  • Averted: Bob stops Evulz's from firing his energy blast, telling him "Don't. Kill her, and he'll massacre you."
  • Enforced: "We need to get the player emotionally involved. Let's have Emperor Evulz kill Alexis!"
  • Lampshaded: "You killed my little sister. I will fucking rip your head off!"-said by The Player.
  • Invoked: After killing Alexis, Evulz mocks The Player for being unable to dive into the screen and kill him themself, taunting them.
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
