"Samu-Fry", Way to Die #218, is the sixth death to be featured in "Dead to Rights", which aired on February 17, 2010.

Plot

Two Japanese-American teenagers named Gregory and Tyler attempt to engage in a katana battle after watching a samurai movie and playing samurai video games. What Gregory and Tyler did not know was the swords they were using, their father collected; and weren't for child's play. When they took their fight outside, Gregory attempted to land a deadly hit on his brother and close friend, Tyler, but his katana hits a low-hanging power line and electrocutes him to his death. If the power line wasn't there, it would have cost Tyler his life instead.

Goofs

  • Anachronism: The two protagonists were playing the Xbox 360, which would've been impossible to exist until 2005. Furthermore, the original Xbox wasn't released until November 15, 2001 - a full two months after the events of this predicament.
