Faces of Death: Disney Edition

Have a seat, children… Now, I know you thought Mickey, Ariel and Pinocchio would last forever, but the harsh reality of gaming is that all characters must eventually die. Often it seems like God is being cruel, yet it’s a fact that anything with a health bar will eventually perish.

Oh, Mickey games sometimes call remaining lives “Tries” and most of the female characters simply disappear or hard cut to a Continue screen, but I assure you not even Goofy can escape death’s icy embrace. Here, have look at some of our favorite kill screens - Don’t try and look away! This is a good thing.

The Lion King

Above: Dead Simba makes Rafiki sad


Above: Suck too much, and the ghost of Mickey will haunt you for the rest of your days

Beauty and the Beast: Roar of the Beast

Above: You could’ve just said “Reset”

Beauty and the Beast (SNES)

Above: You’re not just dead – no one will ever love you!


Above: Nooooooooooooo

Mickey’s Adventures in Numberland

Above: Don’t be afraid to let down Sheriff Don

    Those Beauty and the Beast screens seem like their rubbing salt in the wound: "You died. Also, nobody likes you." reCaptcha: explode ftw. Awesome!

    As a kid, my eyes would be abit tearful whenever Micky died in Mickey Mania. Damn that arsehole of a moose, man, he was out for fucking blood.

    Pinocchio: Wouldn't "Death of Conscience" be less archaic and more descriptive of Jiminy's role (in the movie, any way)?
  • Terro - September 25, 2009 7:39 p.m.

    I like the Aladdin game over screens. At least it's better than Mickey's Mousecapades... That is seriously bad.
