Death is a non-player character who appears at a player's death during Halloween events. When he appears, he proclaims a random phrase (a list of which can be seen below). According to Mod Ash, Death is an aspect of the Grim Reaper, and is merely a visual representation of the "inconceivable reality"[1].

He is removed at the end of each holiday event.

Other phrases said by Death[edit | edit source]

  • Let me escort you to (respawn point), (player name)...
  • (player name) is mine!
  • Now is the time you die, (player name).
  • Muahahahahaha!
  • There is no escape, (player name)...
  • Beware Mortals. (player name) travels with me now.
  • I claim (player name) as my own.
  • Your time here is over, (player name).
  • I have come for you, (player name)!
Death claiming a player as they die.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • His examine text, "Do not fear the Reaper", is a reference to the Blue Öyster Cult's song, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper".
  • A possibility is that Death is a lesser reaper, or that "Death" is a generic term for all lesser reapers (explaining why multiple Deaths can appear at once).
