Documenting the characters that have been definitely, certainly, not-coming-back, totally killed.

Three smart-bombs - 2001-02-07 (it can be argued that single-panel appearance characters ought not be counted, but these had speaking parts. Characters like Tuck Chestpuffer [killed by an exploding ball in Sudden Death Armorball] who don't have speaking roles aren't included)

Technically, the entire Tagon's Toughs roster was "killed" aboard the Princess Tyola by the diamond beetles, but they had new bodies re-grown so they don't count as "deaths". The diamond beetles (unknown number) did die.

The original Gav, killed by Captain Megiddo as an example to Kevyn and Triniko - 2002-06-23 (Technically, the original Gav is very, very dead. In practice, there are 950 million odd Gavs after he was cloned.)

Judo Targets and an unnamed UNS Marine, killed by Tchukk in two tanks - 2002-07-09 (see preceding strip for context)

The first Gav clone, killed by six Megiddo's for having cloned him - 2002-07-18

Interestingly, Under New Management //has both the fewest number of fatalities and the second highest. There are only three documented deaths in UNM, but one of those is an entire planetary population. Billions (trillions?) die, but it happens off-screen so it isn't that big of a tragedy...

--Start of Deleted Timeline-- Part of the story in RMS involves time travel. In the first act, things go wrong, by the third act the problems are fixed. This means that some characters who are "permanently killed" in the first act, are then ... well, not raised from the dead, but the conditions that caused them to die don't occur so they didn't. They are included here between start of deleted to end of deleted (when the travel occurs) but they don't count since they are not permanently dead. Warning: spoilers in the preceding paragraph.

Colnel Pranger (and a group of Pranger's Bangers) killed by Schlock - 2004-10-16

Possible: Five UNS Marines stranded in interstellar space. In theory the Vredefort would pick them up when it returned, but... 2005-03-27

VDA Node 42 (there's a teeny AI in there and it had dialogue [sort of], so it counts) - 2005-04-03

Everyone in the entire Galaxy - 2005-04-10 (This would count as the highest kill-count, but there's no evidence that anyone in the old timeline was actually "killed". Still ... it's everybody, so it has to count somewhere, right?)

--End Deleted Timeline-- From here onwards, the time travel is no more. All "deaths" from start of time travel to here are re-set and "didn't happen". All deaths from here onwards are canon.

House Phica Tanker, blown up by Kevyn's anti-matter epaulet - 2005-05-30
