Nobody said it has to be retro. There are tons of arcades still around with modern games in them.

But Pulsefire Ezreal is Megaman in all but name. Extremely similar death animation, special particles on unit kills...yeah, he's basically Megaman. Arguably X, what with the whole grimdark future deal.

Not surprising to hear this from the guy with Omega as his FEK. :P

I think he should have one of those "slowly blink away until completely disappearing" after he falls onto the ground.

I like the current animation. It looks familiar from an older system game, but i cant place it.

I don't think it references a certain retro game character's death since Bitsplosion said it was a reference to a retro game trope. What that trope is, for me, is hard to put a finger on... Anybody got any answers to what trope it is exactly?

Try these:
"U NEED MORE PRACTICE"
"STAGE FAILED"
"FISSION MAILED"

Given the RUA/GH references, though, perhaps it would be better to base the death animation on those, somehow?
