== Known Behavior ==
Death always tries to use its lethal touch against all [[NPC]]s and [[Maxwell]], including other Deaths, categorizing it as the most hostile NPC. In Scribblenauts, all Deaths spawn holding a [[Scythe]]. But in [[Super Scribblenauts]] and later games any Deaths spawned
do not hold a weapon. Since the touch is not considered to be an attack, it cannot be modified by any adjectives or taming weapons ([[Mind Control Device]], [[Cupid Arrow]],...). When unarmed, Death can instantly kill any NPCs. Death has a very decent defense like [[God]], and is able to defend up to two seperate [[rocket]]s. In Super Scribblenauts and later on in the series, if an NPC is made [[Portable|handheld]], Death will pick them up, and they will disappear. Death can appear from a [[Portal]]. Death's special instant kill ability allows it to defeat any object, even if it wields the [[invincible]] adjective. The only way to protect against Death is with a [[Force Field|force field]]. In [[Scribblenauts Unmasked]] he only seems to be able to use his death touch once.
== Trivia ==
*'''Thanatos''' is a Greek personification of death while '''Mors''' is a Roman personification of death. The '''Grim Reaper''' is also a personification of death. '''Hades''' is the god of the underworld in Greek mythology (Pluto in Roman mythology).
*In the artistic deception, '''Thanatos''' and '''Azrael''' have wings while in-game they don't.
*'''Azrael''' is the angel of death, which looks similar in-game, wielding a scythe and a black shirt worn like reaper. However, its attitude isn't the same since Azrael is not aggressive.
