** After carving a bloody trail through 2 full movies just to get to Bill, Beatrix kills Bill in a ridiculously short fight scene that last just 20 seconds and doesn't involve Bill landing a single blow on her. Every single significant character Beatrix fought before Bill turned out to be a greater challenge then Bill was.

* In ''Film/XXx'', Creator/VinDiesel plays an extreme sports master named Xander Cage who is recruited for his unconventional specialties and skills by a secret government organization. When Vin Diesel dropped out of the sequel, ''Film/XXxStateOfTheUnion'', and was apparently somewhat unprofessional about it, it is [[McLeaned announced early in the film that his character has been killed offscreen]], and a new character, Darius Stone, replaces him. On top of that, Stone is said to be "tougher and nastier" then Cage when xXx's superior is considering his replacement. In the DVD release, this is explained: Simply put, he goes into a building, which promptly blows up. To emphasize the deadness, two things come flying out of the wreckage - [[BodyHorror his charred torso and the portion of his neck with the 'xXx' tattoo on it, complete with ears]]. They must have forgotten their own script, because in the movie, Agent Shavers tells Darius Stone that the last xXx died in some sort of freak snowboarding accident.

* ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' had a strange one when rival rock band Crash and the Boys were unceremoniously killed off by Matthew Pattel (in fact they were the only non-villians killed off) even though they had a larger role in the [[ComicBook/ScottPilgrim comic]].

* In Bruno Mattei's [[{{Mockbuster}} unofficial]] ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' sequel ''Jaws 5: Cruel Jaws'' a bunch of characters are killed off very awkwardly in a scene where they're on a boat trying to shoot the shark when suddenly the woman in the group starts getting hysterical and for no reason grabs an open tank of gasoline and raises it over her head, accidentally pouring gasoline all over herself and the guy next to her, and then another guy [[TooDumbToLive gets right in the way of the pouring gasoline and fires a flare gun]], [[StuffBlowingUp causing the ship to explode]].

This was just an excuse to use footage of a boat blowing up, stolen from a similar scene in ''Jaws 2''.

** Count Dooku was powerful enough to [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] and [[TheChosenOne Anakin]], and go head-to-head with [[BadassGrandpa Yoda]]. [[TooCoolToLive He gets killed]] unceremoniously in the first fifteen minutes of Episode III because Anakin's power has grown beyond Dooku at this point.

* Whistler dies at the beginning of ''Film/BladeTrinity'', pretty much for no other reason than to introduce a cool new team of sidekicks for Blade. Especially blatant since GuillermoDelToro went to all the trouble of resurrecting the character in ''Film/{{Blade II}}'' after he seemingly died at the end of the [[Film/{{Blade}} first movie]]. Poor Whistler just can't catch a break!

** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Oliver Platt's unnamed character is introduced as being a potential "M" for Xavier's Bond, providing a facility, sponsoring the recruitment of the X-Men, protecting them from the rest of the CIA, and above all he comes across as sympathetic to the mutants. Then, not halfway through the film, [[spoiler: the base is attacked and Azazel drops the guy to his death from high in the sky, and that's the end of Mr. Platt's involvement in the film]].

Long-time X-Men fans familiar with the very early years of the franchise are also left wondering if he's Fred Duncan, a major ally of Xavier and his contact in the US Government during the 1960s, transplanted from the FBI to the CIA for the movie version. Then, not halfway through the film, [[spoiler: the base is attacked and Azazel drops the guy to his death from high in the sky, and that's the end of Mr. Platt's involvement in the film]].

* ''[[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze]]'' strangely combines AnticlimaxBoss and DroppedABridgeOnHim by having Super Shredder drop a dock on himself. Close enough.

** Or Rachel. After the character development she gets in this movie, and the awesome scene of her standing up to ''the freaking Joker'', you'd think she'd get a somewhat meaningful death, not tied to a chair and blown up.
