Videogame death thread

Death animations are a favorite of mine

In older versions of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup there were special death messages if your stats were drained to 0. I remember my Minotaur forgetting to breathe after a worm ate their brain.

In ADOM there is a chance proportional to your strength of the dungeon collapsing on you when you kick the stairs.

Another World had some good ones. And I just now learned that Another World has music (aside from the introduction). While the dramatic music is an important part of the Castlevania 4 deaths, it seems out of place here.

Gonna post my own Dark Souls death, which I have titled 2 Worlds 1 Father, or Son of Man.

edit: i think lemmings just started out as a stack of disconnected death animations and later people started making their own versions in the same vein
