    One of the the major plot points in 2017's Jumanji is that Ruby Roundhouse has a weakness to poison. She uses that weakness at the end of the movie, when she is bitten by snakes, dies, and respawns with the Gem somewhere else.
    However, isn't this irrelevant? Anyone would die from being poisoned, unless they had some poison immunity trait. She could also just suicide or die from any other reason in that situation (like running away and forcing the villan to shoot her), and would still respawn.
    Was there a specific plot motif for poison weakness?
