Why not just make a sign based off of the inspiration for this skin?:

"Always..." fading away in rainbow letters after hecarim dies.

Hecarim's death DOES still pay homage to a specific retro game trope, and in cases like this where we get to make nods to a culture as rich as video game history, I'll always opt for adding more variety! Ultimately, I think an arcade skin should be defined by its love for gaming culture, not necessarily a specific type of game over.
I disagree entirely. There's nothing wrong with making the death animations unique and reference different sorts of deaths from other games, but they should all be consistent with some sort of "GAME OVER" message.

Interesting how the artists keep dropping the ball with death animations lately.

So if you're going for the Final Fantasy style death, shouldn't it look more like Celestine Soraka's?

He should actually blow up after being freeze framed for a bit. It'd be cool if you did that somewhat blocky/pixelated explosion where they shatter into squares. Or you could do that thing where they shatter and the pieces fall off from top to bottom as if he was being deleted or something.
