I'm talking about the MPAA rating. Is natural death PG rated? The criteria for violence, drug use or nudity is easy to find, but what about death itself, caused by time or a disease such as cancer?
For an example in a different domain, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is TV-Y rated, but depicts a funeral in an episode and a quick analysis can lead the viewer to know which background character (an old pony) is dead.
Also, would there be a different rating depending on the identity of the dying character? E.g. the grand-father of a friend of the main character = PG, but the brother of the main character = PG-13 (or more)? What about the death of the main character itself?
