    A big one was left off this list: The cast of Chrono Trigger was unceremoniously dispatched in Chrono Cross.

    Dmitri from the Treyarch Call of Duty games. In World at War, he's the player character for the good bits of the game, and does all the really cool & interesting stuff. Come Black Ops, he shows up in a flashback within a flashback within a flashback, and is gassed to death along with a bunch of people that you don't know or care about five minutes later. You know, so that you have a reason to hate the bad guy(s).

    Just curious: What's the game referenced in the last panel (the one with the question mark)? I'd say Guts Man from Mega Man 1 into Mega Man 2. From durable, heavy-hitting Robot Master to a gigantic tank...that can get wiped out by a fast spray of boomerangs.

    That'd be Double Dragon for the Neo Geo, and the girl is Marian. Yes. The same one who got killed off a few slides earlier. Lol

    Interesting, never knew there was a version of it for the Neo Geo. Thanks.

    They should've included Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. We got to play as him in all his 128-bit glory for a couple of hours and then character control switched to whiny pretty boy Raiden. After a few events unfold, it becomes obvious that we'd be controlling Raiden for the rest of the game while Snake took a back seat as a supporting character. Not to mention he and his girlfriend Rose constantly got into lover's quarrels over the CODEC. I couldn't save the game without being in the middle of their relationship issues.

    But then we would have never gotten the Senator!

    jhonny cages death had something to do with the terrible bonestorm game and the actor endorsing it right?

    General Carius from Bloodmoon gets killed after Red Mountain erupts, then 200 years later gets his corpse reanimated by a necromancer, retains his free-will initially, then is placed into servitude as an undead. Then gets killed again.

    Sub-Zero (Kuai Liang) gets turned into a cyborg in Mortal Kombat 9. Not only that, but he also gets jobbed to Sindel rather easily, too.
  • TheGreyWizard - January 29, 2014 9:57 a.m.

    That is actually what kept me from getting MK9. I take stuff like that way too seriously. Also Harry's death ruined SH3 for me (along with its god-awful story).
  • wadesmit - January 29, 2014 12:45 a.m.

    Thanks for the interesting read. Also, very well-written. The tone comes across as knowledgeable and affable. Good job on that.

    This article is not working for me like the others. What do i do?

    Am I the only one this article isn't working for?

    I genuinely like Roman more than Johnny. Lost and the Damned never really got its hooks into me, but in GTA4, Roman was with me from the beginning to the end. Sure the calls from friends got a little annoying, but during the story Roman was always there to help Niko. That doesn't really make the scene with <Spoilers> Trevor killing Johnny any less terrible to me. It didn't make Trevor seem like more of a badass, it just made it feel like Rockstar was trying to turn Johnny into a Jobber to set up the next big thing.
  • GoldenEagle1476 - January 28, 2014 6:34 p.m.

    Trevor's killing of Johnny upset me even more than the torture sequence.
  • garnsr - January 28, 2014 7:22 p.m.

    I wasn't even sure the Johnny in GTA V was supposd to be Johnny Klebitz at first, his character was very reasonable and not very gang-like in Lost and Damned, and he just seemed like a regular thug in GTA V.

    joder that racoon looool Never heard of her in my life good god

    Cinder from the original Killer Instinct was the best character, although Glacius has a cooler design he had very hot moves. The merchant from RE4 should have returned. The Kremlings in the new Donkey Kong games are sorely missed. Will Simon return in Castlevania:LoS2, being he is still human I think not. Also Princess Daisy really got the shaft from any Mario adventures, is not like with Waluigi at least she had an appearance in one game and even Pauline has been more a damsel in distress than her.
