Contrary to the trend, you will be relieved to hear that the popular cartoon character is not officially dead. However, searching for and entertaining the idea of what killed him brings some traumatic things to surface level, including that he was “killed when his heart exploded.”

This is because many people have found a page from the List of Deaths wiki that documents all the deaths that happen in popular media. There is a page dedicated to the Disney+ series, The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse. The page lists all the ways that characters, including Mickey, died on the show.

Some of the ways Mickey died include “when his heart exploded” and “disintegrated when the Beast yelled at him.” The trend has gained millions of views and likes so far, with people sharing their reactions to the terrifying results.

If you want to see the page telling you what killed Mickey Mouse then have a look here.
