how about a recarnation ? like if you get 100 points, the secret weapon can be one life. if you really died, you dont need other ppl to reach 100 to revive you . you can use that one life to bring you back to the room after the mission is complete.
for example, if oku or oka that osaka guy who got lots of 100 points. if he has this recarnation secret weapon, he wont be scared that no one would revive him.
That'd sort of take the meaning away from dying, it would like Sakata said, it would cheapen a persons life to know you can just let them die and it won't matter.
