Dead is a character of Jibaku-kun (as known Bucky: The Incredible Kid or Bucky: Searching for World 0) series, a creation of Ami Shibata. He is the ninth G.C. of Novas and the older brother of Live, the sixth G.C. of Hexas.


Dead is the older brother of Live who is also a fellow G.C. from Hexas who currently resides at Novas as both the island of Hexas and Novas are inflicted with the curse of the Needle Tower made by Hail where his region in Novas appears at night while in his younger brother's region in Hexas appears at day. He and his younger brother are asked by Hail to deal against Bucky and the group which he accuses them as the Trouble Kids.

Dead is shown playing the organ while half of his face is not shown. The trio are now in Novas despite both Pinky and Kai are afraid of haunted houses and cemeteries which Bucky does not showing his fear like the other two. Like his younger brother, Dead is controlling the Umbrellans to attack Bucky and the group while playing his organ at the top of the hill. When Bucky attempts to throw Jibac at him, Dead retaliates by using Jubac causing both spirits collide in explosion. Bucky finally notices him from being a G.C. as Dead appears behind him while handling his spirit Jubac as he coldly introduces to them. Dead finally explains about the problem in Hexas which is both of their islands between Hexas and Novas are inflicted with the curse made by Hail which the region of Hexas appears in a day while the region of Novas appears at night. He also tells them that they torture people in Hexas with the use of the Umbrellans. In doing so, the curse will soon to be broken. Dead manages to disperse the trio by controlling his organ by itself to make a devastating soundwave on the ground which they were trapped in a stone rubble as Dead continues to play his organ to make the trio suffer. Hail watches them being suffer by either both Live or Dead inside the Needle Tower this causes Spaak to lose his temper as both men are clashing with their two swords. After dealing with Bucky and the group, he asks Hail to break the curse which makes Hail cries hysterically from Bucky's loss although Bucky and the group are alive after Pinky uses her Teleportation technique to keep them safe at the cost of her energy.

When his younger brother Live arrives at Novas, He eventually confronts Pinky after awakening from her consciousness as she screams for help. He notices his brother's arrival and Pinky also tells both Bucky and Kai that Dead has a rift with his younger brother, Live much to his shock and he was soon attacked by his younger brother Live with a Sonic Blast. Dead retaliates by summoning several needles to entrap his younger brother as the needles are engulfing with flames within it. Live becomes angered at his older brother for his actions as well as for torturing the people in Hexas as Bucky scolds them not to fight each other as siblings and both of them were tricked by Hail much to Dead's shock and Live angrily refuses to believe and Dead tells him about his dream is to reunite with his younger brother again and to make up with each other as siblings which Live was surprised to his words and Dead sadly releases him. The Umbrellans return to attack them inside the haunted mansion and Dead realizes that Hail breaks his promise as it attacks them all. Bucky notices the giant Umbrellan which is inflicted by Slash's Poison of Awakening and it begins to attack them inside the mansion to make its rampage which he tells everyone including both Dead and Live to escape and Bucky solely fights the monster and defeats it with a Powerful Wave. Outside the haunted mansion where it was exploded, Slash becomes angered from its defeat as he walks away. After the incident, Dead knows that the region of Novas is no longer to be transported back after the curse is broken and Live decides to let him stay at his town at the region of Hexas and he asks him if he loves rock music. Dead finally accepts to stay in Hexas as he tells his younger brother that he loves classical music much to his disappointment.
