Death is a status effect that occurs when an Adventurer's health hits zero, or by a few other means, like the cursed item Blackmail. Death can be prevented through certain items, equipments, or Skills. Deathblock is an item that will prevent a hit from killing, but only in battle. As such, any buffs, debuffs, or status effects will linger. Revival, and by extension the Angel Choker or the Acrobat's Field Skill Play Dead, will revive the player immediately at 1/2 health, in battle or on the field, but all buffs, debuffs, and status effects will be lost. Upon death, the adventurer will be transported to the last Temple they visited, including Dokapon Castle.
There are several types of Death, each forcing the player to skip different amounts of turns based on the type.
- Cherubs: A heavenly light falls upon the dead player from the sky and two cherubs pick the player up and carry them into the light. This type of death always forces your player to recuperate for 1 turn. In addition, this carries the least severe effects, such as losing a quarter of your money or losing 1 Item.
- Dark Angels (Kingdom Only): A pair of black-haired angels rise up from the ground, create a portal, grab the player, and bring him/her down. This type of death usually forces your player to recuperate for 2 turns (1 if in dungeons). This carries more severe penalties than Cherubs, but less severe than the Grim Reaper, such as losing half your money or 2-3 Items, or getting Pranked.
- Grim Reaper: A portal into darkness appears below the dead player, which the Grim Reaper appears from. The Grim Reaper emits an evil-sounding growl before dragging your player into the void with him. This type of death usually forces your player to recuperate for 3 turns (2 if in dungeons). The Grim Reaper will always be summoned upon death via Blackmail or Death Call Field Magic. The added penalties of dying are the most severe, ranging from losing all money, losing all Items, losing a piece of Equipment, or losing control of a Town (or 2 in the case of dying out of battle).
In the DX version, you'll always rest within 1 turn.
