Basic Trope: A character is killed off repeatedly for laughs.

  • Straight: Bob dies almost all the time, and yet reappears in the next with no explanation.
  • Exaggerated: Bob dies Once Per Episode.
  • Downplayed: Bob always breaks his arms, legs, or even gets crippled for life, yet is as fresh as new the next episode.
  • Justified: Bob has a very high healing factor.
  • Inverted: Bob's always the sole survivor of whatever unfortunate event that the creators throw at him and others.
  • Subverted: The character dies all the time, but then he ends up getting Killed Off for Real... which makes it all the more heartbreaking because the characters and/or audience know that he isn't coming back.
  • Double Subverted: ...and then comes back a few episodes later with no explanation.
  • Parodied: Bob's deaths are in such a spectacularly gory manner that no sane person would survive... and yet he does.
