• I know someone has made a previous topic on this but I  want to get some conformation. If there's a rule for the characters needing to die on screen, why does The Walking Dead Road To Survival page show the exact status's of the video game characters despite them not being killed on-screen within that preticular game? Does no one pay attention to the character page on Road to Survival because I sure do. If there is a rule behind characters dying on screen, I can name a few characters who have not died on screen in The Walking Dead Road to Survival.

    http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/Road_to_Survival_Characters

    I'll be using the Telltale characters as an example:

    1. Lee, despite him getting bit at the end of Road to Survial's Telltale event, he's never shown dying, also you don't get a choice that determins his death. His death in Road To Survival should not be based off of his Telltale counterpart because I doubt that Road to Survival is even canon for that matter. It has many non canon deaths, Lilly Caul for an example and Benjamin from the kingdom to name two.

    http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/Lee_Everett_(Road_to_Survival)

    http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/Lilly_Caul_(Road_to_Survival)

    http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/Benjamin_(Road_to_Survival)

    Moving on.

    2. Pretty much all of the Telltale characters are given the same status as their videogame counterparts but there are plenty of characters who aren't even shown or mentioned in the event cutscenes, for an example, Carley.

    3. Mark is also guilty of this treatment, he's never shown or mentioned in any of the cutscens but despite that, Mark is given the same status as his video game counterpart.

    4. Larry is never shown in the main event, he's only casted as a character you can play as. Despite that, Larry is given his videogame fate.

    5. I can keep going on and on but I'm going to stop here at number 5. There is no determinate choice on Kenny in Road to Survival, despite that, Kenny is given a determinate status.

    http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/Kenny_(Road_to_Survival)

    My point is, if Hershel and Glenn's comic status's don't count, then why do Lee's, Carley's, Mark's, Larry's and Kenny's status's count for Road to Survival? If each status differs between two wiki's (Comic and Video game wiki's) Why does Road to Survival get to brandish the same exact status's they're given in a seperate wiki?

    Also, Andrew (Comic) is guilty of this too, we never see him die in the comic, yet the novel carries over his status to the comic.

    • From the perspective of a person who only plays the video game, Hershel and Glenn are unknown. Some people only play the video game and have never read the comics. So that's for them. That's why there's two different pages.

      This applies to RtS too.

      Andrew was confirmed by Robert Kirkman to be deceased.

      And, I don't actually have any of the Telltale characters, but I would guess it's because they're, as you said, from Telltale themselves, rather than Skybound.

      Like you said, the RtS wiki is a different wiki. This wiki is suited to people who play/read/watch any mediums of The Walking Dead. The Road to Survival Wiki is solely for people who play RtS.

    • I just think it'd only be fair if we didn't lable the same fate upon the Road to Survival characters, especially when they're not shown dying. There are a few characters who have non canon deaths as I mentioned before, Lilly and Benjamin. There is also a lot of non canon dialogue and events in the game. The characters witin that wiki shouldn't have the same fate as their counterparts because of that. I do agree with you on the spoilers though, that's why I was disappointed to see the status's on the road to survival characters. As for Andrew, I guess I can understand since the creator himself announced his death.

      They aren't non-canon deaths. Road to Survival is a separate story, not in the same universe as the comics/novels.

    • Glenn & Hershel in A New Day were just cameo appearances, thus their status remain Unknown.
