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.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?

I'd say you draw the line at the place where the exact same information has been covered repeatedly.

The fact that we respawn continuously being that information. Obviously, we know now that Saradomin himself isn't the one bringing us back from the dead, or granting us our prayer xp every time we bury a bone.

The reason has been debunked, but the fact remains. We respawn.

And really, it's not big enough to justify being uncomfortable with it. After all, just because we respawn doesn't exactly mean we respawn with our arms and legs intact in the event someone gets the clever idea to strip us of our limbs beforehand. ^_^


But Tiffy doesn't talk about the player specifically. He talks about the Temple Knights *as a whole* being personally favored by Saradomin and that he catches them as they fall.
