In case of multiple endings, we should only consider the true/canonical ending.

Death is not by itself sufficient.

Examples:
* Protagonist's victory causes more harm than what they set out to prevent/stop
* Protagonist loses all they cared for in the process
... there's countless others, all dealing with significant personal loss.
