Trust me 9.9/10 of my friends playing CS for the first time got killed by it. And an even more stupid death was I was just about to beat Ballos for the first time ever, and my computer lagged (strangely I don't know how it happened) and I boosted into the one of Ballos' eyes. I'll never forget it.

Hoo boy, I'm sure finding myself dying a lot more stupidly than I normally do ever since I found this thread... Anywho, I was about to beat Ballos in around 4 minutes and 30 seconds with around 30-40ish health left when I screwed up boosting into his eye socket SUPER hard.
First, I boosted too high and ran out of invincibility frames.
After going down to the spikes for more frames, I boosted too close to Ballos, bouncing me away and into one of his eye orbs.
Getting desperate, I tried to just jump into the socket with the help of one of the eye orbs.
However, doing so forfeited enough health that by the time he had a sliver of health left, I ended up dying.
I swear, I haven't screwed up a boss fight THIS badly since... well... the Heavy Press, maybe?

I died way too many times in this game, but the more stupid ones were:

when I drowned in the reservoir,
when I thought Basil was an enemy that you could kill, and,
getting beaten by Toroko when she decides to attack you out of nowhere in the beginning of the game. .-.

I drowned in the Labrynth once...
Seriously, no one drowns on purpose in Cave Story :(

EDIT: Whoops, I meant on accident :p

My stupidest death, in my opinion, was when I got to the scone set of presses in last cave hidden.
And I jumped.
Because I would do this so much, I can now beat the red ogre without taking a hit. I died that many times. (Btw I'm pretty bad at the game)

drowned while fighting the core for the first time
fell on a spike in the first cave 5 times (WTF?!)

A bad death was :
-Feeling compelled to try Santa's spike pit, cause surely that randomly placed trap leads to a secret for the brave and adventurous.

-Ignoring the Heavy Press after a short lived victory dance.

-Laughing at Sue's warning to "jump as far as you can"

-And of course the mandatory chinfish ride...

-Plus many more "special" deaths... cause curosity killed the cat, many, many times

Falling in Santa's house deathtrap out of curiosity (I still wonder why Santa built a deathtrap in his home..)
The deserted house sandcroc (What is that crocodile doing in a house in the first place..)
Getting killed by one of the green missile things after I finally defeated Monster X,
Core's energy balls,
and The Littles' house (seriously, who puts a freaking HOUSE just below the Outer Wall's ledge..).

Surprisingly, I never actually drowned while fighting the Core.

I have died 3x in a row on first spike so I almost uninstalled Cave Story. The graphics of the first cave did not look that good so I was "Bad graphics, annoying spikes, do I need this?" - but I have kept playing and saw how awesome this game is.

You actually got them to play it? Wow. No matter how much I try to introduce Cave Story to my classmates, they don't listen.

It's not stupid unless you didn't save first. But I took the blue robot's word and tried to avoid the Basil until I accidentally fell while trying to land a jump over the passage where it runs.
