    I was kinda disappointed to not see the Reapers from The World Ends With You- Especially SHo. I mean, they're close enough to being 'death' that they should count, right?
  • FOZ - August 10, 2012 12:23 p.m.

    Aren't they already dead, and are gone permanently if they die again? All they can do is delete Players, who are already dead anyway, so just because they're named Reapers doesn't mean they're any sort of incarnation of death.

    I guess they're in charge of enforcing the rules of The Game, and they return life to those that win. I know it's a loose connection, but it's still KINDA there, right? D:

    i am pleased that discworld death is on this list but i must make the point that he doesnt kill people he merely collects their souls.
  • Falcon4196 - August 10, 2012 3:06 p.m.

    Thank-you for pointing that out. Discworld's Death is a professional unlike some of the other's on this list. He's just an anthropomorphic personification trying to hold up his end of the cosmic plan.

    And is actually mortified when he lays down rat poison, he felt like a murderer.
  • ZOMG_bookcase - August 10, 2012 11:06 a.m.

    I like the list but how could you go through and not mention the Grim Reaper in Grabbed by then Ghoulies? Not my favorite game but the Grim Reaper was f-ing awesome and terrifying at the same time.
  • profile0000 - August 10, 2012 11:23 a.m.

    I will second that choice. That dick would just terrorize you with an insta-kill touch, if I remember correctly. That made him a great Grim Reaper though, as you would panic a little bit everytime he showed up.

    Hehe, oh NBA Jam :P I agree with those other two, Grabbed by Ghoulies, GOSH Meh, Thanatos gets free soda so yeah.....XD
  • ThatFanInThePeacoat - August 10, 2012 1:43 p.m.

    Nice list, but an obvious lack of Nito from Dark Souls. But then again, nearly everything in that game sends the player to his/her death...
  • KA87 - August 10, 2012 2:19 p.m.

    I agree, but he was one of the easiest bosses to kill. Lord Gwynn was more of a Grim Reaper than him. Actually most of the bosses and some of the general enemies were more of a Grim Reaper. At least he looked cool.
  • Antikorper - July 17, 2014 4:27 p.m.

    true but note nito offered so much of his lord soul's power to the power of death, that being said, nito was kinda the good guy. think about it.
  • Cyberninja - August 10, 2012 2:46 p.m.

    You forgot death from persona 3 and 4, you could never mess up shuffle time for fear he would show up.
  • talleyXIV - August 10, 2012 3 p.m.

    "Let's get this done and see some undead boobs." I thought that additional writing was real, and then that...
  • IceBlueKirby - August 10, 2012 3:52 p.m.

    Man, I remember Death in Gauntlet Legends/Dark Legacy. He'd sometimes come out of chests, but mostly barrels...Death in a Barrel I called it. I wasn't very imaginative back then. Although this isn't relevant to video games, my favorite version of Death is from Family Guy. XD
  • tomasfr89 - August 10, 2012 5:20 p.m.

    Here are some obscure Deaths: In Malice for Ps2 every time you died you'd go to the underworld and Death would kick you out because No Goddesses Allowed. In Maximo: Ghost to glory for Ps2 you die at the intro and Death resurrects you and gives you some coins or "continues" just in case.

    I seriously hope reapers are real and I get to be one in the afterlife. Sorry, but those guys kick ass.
  • chazzyman - August 11, 2012 1:53 p.m.

    I think Persona 3's reaper was awesome and really unique with all the chains across his body and his two flintlocks that he uses to cast spells.
