The coolest death I've had?
Well, all deaths suck.
I guess I could say that it was the time I used a bed in the nether not knowing that it would blow up.
The floor blew out from under me and I fell into the lava ocean.
This happened on the Xbox edition. Our nethers are tiny, 200+ x 200+ in dimension, you can see from one end to the other if you stand in the middle of it. Before 4J made glowstone dust a farmable drop from Blazes, glowstone was painfully limited.
So a friend and I were in the nether once on a glowstone run. It was still the 1.7.3 equivalent, so no health regen or stackable food, nor sprinting. My friend was in charge of carrying resources, I came in with loads of cobble for making scaffolding. We were pretty irresponsible for making a clean sweep for glowstone in one run, but we gathered as much glowstone as we could find. We started back toward the portal, neither of us doing really well for health or food, and having already spent all our arrows against ghasts.
Still a good distance from the portal, my friend draws aggro from a ghast in a large open area, and while trying to punch out fires while running, also accidentally punched a pigman and drew aggro from a crowd of maybe a dozen or so of them. I don't know how he ended up so far behind me an on a slightly different route, but he started squealing over the mic, so I turned back, dropped the last porkchop for him, ran past him back toward where the ghast was. Right as I passed the mob of pigmen, I hit the last one in the group, turning the mob's attention to me. I ran up under the ghast, threw my remaining cobble down and pillared up to it, smacked it in the belly with my sword, and fell to my death off the platform becuase I wasn't really paying attention to my forward momentum.
So, coolest way I died: self sacrifice to ensure the return of our spoils. It was pretty cinematic how it played out.
A charged creeper (which randomly spawns in a plugin) fell and took a heart of damage or so and exploded (they instantly explode if they take any damage) near me, chopping off a large portion of my health.
And breaking the bridge in the mineshaft under me, sending me to a cave where I died of fall damage.
All this happened in a second. Pretty much a "wtf" moment if there ever was one.

Did something happen to you in your childhood to give you this unreasonable fear of rutabaga?
I died of a creeper explosion and my head exploded into a stack of potatoes, my torso flew all the way to the moon and fought rainbow unicorns to the death, my right arm had an arm wrestling match with a zombie, my left arm learned judo and karate, my right leg kicked a pig in the face thinking it would drop diamonds, and my left leg went into the nether to start a new life...long story short, I never died with grace/
I remembered that there was once I built this very nice wooden lodge in the middle of the woods, complete with a beautiful flowerbed and a freshly dug pond with lily pads on it. I was reshuffling my inventory and my little brother scared me from behind. I flinched, and unfortunately I didn't know I was holding onto my flint and steel. During the scare I accidentally set my nice wooden wall alight (I didnt know at that time) and I turned around and gave my brother a good scolding.
After about a minute, I turned around and got the shock of my life. The wall was halfway burnt down, the ceiling was gone, my bed on the second floor was alight, my chest in front of me containing my diamonds and iron suddenly disappeared, spilling its content into the raging flames. I backed away into a flaming crafting table and got myself on fire. I rushed through the gaping hole where my wooden door once was and proceeded to jump into the pond when at that critical moment I ran out of hearts and all my inventory and a couple of experience orbs fell into pond water.
I watched, mouth agape, as I died from literally half a block away from salvation. It was a sad day... =(
Oh my, these are funny! Well, for me, mine was a bit EPIC imo. With three potions in hand, I jumped off of my ramparts and charged at the incoming horde of creepers and other demonspawn. I had slain each beast one by one, but one remained. An enderman had eluded me, but I was on multiplayer. I called for some help, and one person arrived. They must have been new, for they were using a bow. The only thing that came out of that massive bloodbath was me, dead, with an arrow in the back, a castle slightly griefed by the enderman and some creepers, and a single man, standing there. He was dumbstruck, like one of those characters on a cartoon with cross-eyes and drool coming out.
edit: umm, wow. I have only 42 posts and I have a strange forum rank. I am: THE MEANING OF LIFE, THE UNIVERSE, AND EVERYTHING...
Me and my friend were testing our survival TNT cannons, and I went a long ways away to see where the tnt would explode. My friend fires it, lands around 2 blocks away from me and kills me. Me and my friends still laugh about it today xD
I was playing Hellblock, so I tried to get lava from my infinite lava source my friend built, it didnt work, and the lava dissapeared when i tok it, trying to fix it, i put the lava back, it floods the island, needless to say, i had to start a new island
I was being surrounded by tons of mobs, and I MEAN TONS, so as a last attempt to survive, I did the opposite by lighting tnt. If I'm going down, we all are!
Edit: That last post was fake, here is what I meant to say
I was doing hardcore parkour on boats and then I jumped from sand tower to sand tower that was falling and I made an epic jump over lava with 50 ghasts firing at me and I dodged all the fireballs and supercharged creepers fell right over me but I got a speed boost and a knockback stick and hit all of them into lava and then the the ghast got out of it's chamber and blew me up and killed me and you just now noticed that there are 2 the's instead of just one and you noticed from the start that I need punctuation and this was fake or I was playing a hypixel map
