I'd consider it a 4th wall break personally. I will never accept reswpaning as a canon thing outside of unique instances like Blood Runs Deep or Some Like it Cold. It diminishes the story far too much for me to see it as a serious part of the narrative. It takes away all the stakes, makes every npc sacrifice unnecessary and is all around a terrible and unnecessary addition to the lore that's there PURELY to explain what should just remain a game mechanic. -
I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
- We call it being a hero.

It is objectively not breaking the fourth wall. That's all I have to say. Opinion does not change fact; the fact that the World Guardian is the only being able to respawn (in-universe) has not only been an established fact for a long, long time, (see: Sir Tiffy Cashien,) it counts as integration of gameplay and story - thus a fourth wall lean.


Is it most likely the devs' intention for it to be canon?Probably, at least for Raven. Does the explanation make sense? Yes, I'm not an idiot, but don't act like there's anything objective about it. Scale theory, gameplay/story segregation... It's all incredibly subjective. Where do you draw the line and say what part of the game is canon and what isn't? I draw the line at respawning and see it as a 4th wall break, and I hope it won't forcibly be made a big part of lore. But hey, that's how I see it.

Yes, I am effectively putting my fingers in my ears and shouting lalalalala.
