I don't think that we can ever say definitively that a character is deceased. It's a cartoon, TBC can choose to bring back anything at any time. Anything put in this category is pure speculation. — Defender1031*Talk 00:05, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Ah, but that is why I have only put in characters declared dead and yet to come back. Only characters deader than death usually entails in the cartoon. Besides, The Brothers Chaps seem to be very strict on who is for really dead. Like The Paper. His reappearence and later death was totally permanent, or he'd be printing by now. And New Papes is obliterated. In-movie characters like Dadgeresque would definely stay dead, as that is how the Dangeresque continuity goes. Should I go on? --Jellote wuz here 00:11, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
I don't really see your point, Jellote. free 00:12, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
In fact, i think you just proved MY point. Ol' papes was "dead" and suddenly he was back in 200. Hence, any of them could come back at any time. — Defender1031*Talk 00:18, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Meh, I guess your right. Well, whatever. If this is what the wiki wants... Let us get a few other people's opions first.--Jellote wuz here 00:22, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Like many an absurdist cartoon, H*R has taken many liberties to toy with the concept of reality including life and death. TBC are arguably free to bring back any character 'from the dead' as they please (as they have already demonstrated). Therefore assuming what the dead/alive state of any character is, like Defender said, mere speculation. Example #1: homsar. I would prefer to see an article listing instances where characters at some point could be presumably dead (including the aforementioned Example #1) and that information could easily fit inside the Death article.

I like that idea. An article, though, not a whole category. — Defender1031*Talk 00:28, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
I too agree that a category like this does not work, after all this is a cartoon, where we all know anything can happen. "Presumable deaths" may be a better idea, but I'm having a little trouble where an article like that would be going. Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 01:11, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
I concur, this doesn't quite work as a category, but an article might pull through. Strongkinghomsarsmith 01:39, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Considering the fact that death is rarely permanent in the H*R universe, it would be unwise to assume any character will remain deceased forever. Homeschool Winner may be dead today but who knows what next Monday will bring? A more useful article than this would be one that listed all the instances of a character's death, both real and temporary. Oh wait, we already have such an article. – The Chort 22:04, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
Once and only one. Since we have a very exhaustive list of every death, I don't see a reason for a lesser list that is more prune to mistakes. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 06:25, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
