Nearly all the parents and guardian figures die at various points throughout the series. The trolls' lusii (animal caretakers, serving in a parental role) are all implied to have died prior to the trolls entering the game, and it is further implied that the sprites which were prototyped with their lusii later vanished or died at some point during the trolls' session. Exactly one parent (Dad Crocker) makes it through to the end alive. While the series does treat death lightly, these deaths are all taken quite seriously and they are perceived as understandably traumatic for the children; discovering her mother's death is the tipping point for Rose, who becomes temporarily corrupted by eldritch creatures taking advantage of her being overwhelmed by her grief and distress. The majority of these deaths happen off-screen and the exact details are only implied, but the bodies are shown afterwards.
