The only memorable death I can think of is dying trying to do Fremmy isles, those trolls tore me to pieces before I got to the dungeon. I lost quite a bit (For me back then, probably ~500k) and didn't attempt again for another few days though my second attempt went fine. I've died plenty of times at bosses and quests (And metal drags when I slayed, super antifires are a double edged sword when not paying attention) but never had much of an impact.

Before eoc when I was chinning I wasn't paying any sort of attention and ran our of prayer. Sadly I brought around 20k chins which so I ended up losing like 15m. To top it all off my internet decided to lag out for a solid 10 minutes after the fact.

Yesterday, I was doing A Soul's Bane. Well, if there weren't abilities, I wouldn't have survived at all. Then I got to Tolna, and he creamed me. I lost my crossbow bolts... I will never use the bolt pouch again!!!

i used to love wearing sara dhide with robin set, i'm not sure on the prices but the sara hide was over 1m at the time so guessing the robin set was at least 10m+, i lost them about 4 times through lag deaths at steel dragons, which is fine

but on time i was there, killing away, i got my first ever dragon spear drop, was going round telling everyone like woo d spear! then i thought to equip it and see how much it damaged the dragons, forgetting it was 2h and would remove my shield, getting meleed and dragon fired in range gear and no shield, yeah, i lasted a couple of seconds, oopsie

It wasn't exactly the biggest loss given I was able to get back to my grave, but the most embarassing has to be the time where me, along with Alg and Baraqiel, were getting manhandled by a Demon Mob Boss we felt like trioing. Two level 200s and a lvl 192 (at the time) getting manhandled and slaughtered multiple times.

I hated ones with "the Glorious" (stunning type) suffix ever since.

There is also the one where I somehow got destroyed by a level 15 Delrith at level 200 just because I came back from hiatus and was unaware of how the EoC worked at the time. Yeah...

I can't think of anything particularly embarassing or expensive, but I'll give my most heart-breaking one.

I am, and always have been, obsessed with the mime outfit/emotes. I had just got the last piece of the set (this was years ago) and walked around in it for a while. I put on my armor when I was done showing it off and went to the wilderness... forgetting to change the gloves and boots. I died. I had those gloves for less than a day and it took me a full year to get the gloves and boots again.

Most expensive:
Friend loans me Dclaws for the night and I decide to go kill some Green Dragons. I wanted to be careful so I took the Barbarian canoe thing deep into the wildy to avoid pkers. There was a bot there who I killed for his bone/hide collection. Some lvl 100 noob shows up (I was around lvl 115 at the time) and begins to ice blitz me. I try to kill him but he continues to farcast. Eventually I die and lose my friend's claws, my fury, and my rapier (I was like 84 dungoneering and I was devastated). This led me to join DGS where I have gotten over 140m dg xp, and a comp cape. :)

Most embarassing: I died at the hard-mode bandos while using my drygore set, and a torva set my friend had lent me. After I die I run back and loot my grave, then teleport away and mess around at the GE for about 5 minutes. I began to gear back up for a QBD trip and notice something is missing.... Torva legs+gloves+boots+ my offhand drygore weapon.. I freaked out because I had no idea what happened to them. I take full void and a chaotic maul back to GWD to find my gear sitting there outside of the boss room. I had no idea it was still under protection of my grave which was no longer there. I got the kill count as fast as I could and got back the gear :XD:

No really bad ones on my main, but in 07scape I lost about 35k worth of gear over 3 deaths in the first week.

This still haunts we to this day, quite little to some people but at the time I decided to quit for a solid year.

The year was 2005, I was by no means rich and had worked tirelessly to save for full guthans and a whip so I could camp at bandits (When that used to be one of the best training methods), it took me weeks and weeks of saving and I had every piece of gold too my name invested in that Armour. I was set up in the tent with the table (3/4 bandit spawns for constant attacks), I got connection interrupted and by the time I managed to log on and run back there from lumby I was all but too late.

Both most expensive and most embarrassing - I was at steel dragons, only half paying attention and at some point didn't put melee protection. My grave at the time was the 6:00 min type, so no big issue normally. I was still panicking a bit. Gathered my stuff, ran back to brimhaven and steeldragon - only to instantly die again - had forgotten the anti-dragon shield. Gather my stuff again, run to brimhaven, more panicked this time...only to die again - had forgotten the antifire potion :P. The timer ran out when I just dropped off the boat for the third time -.-

Loss was about a million at the time I think...maybe a tenth of my wealth.

dying at bandos pre-instances. i hadnt palyed in awhile, and wasnt very fast anymore. i had forgotten to renew ovl, drank it, and got aggro'd. Grad punched me down :-X. the poeple there were asses and wouldnt bless. Gf 30m. It led to a ragequit for awhile, less over the money loss and more at the poor way i was treated.

Died at cockroach soldiers when I was more nooby, at the time the timer on gravestones was much shorter, so I was running back there as fast as I could and my stuff disappeared as I was like 5-10 steps away.
Only had my chest, legs and shield left pretty much.

North of varrock, F2P deaths at Zamorak Altar. My rune scimmies were my life :(

 

Dying to Torag.

 

250m on 4,7,8

Lost 0.6b whilst I had doubles and then the white came aaahhhh

 

Duel arena: I think i've been cleaned from max cash to nil about 6 times so far, forgetting about the rares.

 

Currently 500m :'(

 

I made so much cash pre-gravestones. RIP death meaning something.
