Thursday Tropes: Week 22

It's been a minute, hasn't it? Well, we're back...and maybe slightly different?

no title

This time around...A. FULL. YEAR. OF. TROPES!

Some Thursdays will have 2 tropes, some will have 3, but I think the majority will have 1 that's really popular.

Descriptions will be pulled from TV Tropes and a link provided if you want more information.

The rules? They're simple. Write at least 250 words or create 2 icons/1 banner. Anything from suggestive to outright porn is allowed.

This week, there is 1 trope!

We Can Rebuild Him: A character suffers a horrific Disney Death. Their body is shattered beyond repair. No One Could Survive That!

But later, he returns! Only this time, he's a cyborg! He's got more power but he might be less human so in villainous cases it's OK to be more brutal on him. When heroes are subject to this, it tends to make them question their humanity, and in doing so retain it.
