* HappyEndingOverride: It's a splatter film series where every movie ends with a DownerEnding in which Death gruesomely murders the protagonists, usually after a fake-out happy ending. The two leads of ''Film/FinalDestination2'' are the only ones to get an unambiguous happy ending, as being killed and then revived in time seems to get them off of Death's list. And yet deleted scenes from [[Film/FinalDestination3 the third movie]] show newspaper clippings revealing that they died in a freak accident sometime in between movies.

* PrimalFear: This film series is built around the fear of being hunted down by the Grim Reaper until he catches up to those who have escaped it and kills them in elaborate, agonizing ways. The inevitability of death is really emphasized because in this series, Death ''always'' wins and the protagonists' efforts to cheat it [[ShootTheShaggyDog are entirely pointless in the end]].

* KillItWithFire: One of the personal classic ways of dying in the series; at least one Death scene in each film involves a fire, and this includes the opening plane explosion in the first film.

* RubeGoldbergHatesYourGuts: I'm sorry, but have you SEEN a death which isn't overly convoluted and reliant on the prospect of every other circumstance being at the perfect place at the perfect time?

** [[spoiler: To be more precise, not a ''single'' character in the movies ultimately beats Death. The only characters to survive the end of their movies was Alex, Clear, Kimberly, and Thomas; Alex is killed off screen between 1 and 2, Clear dies in the first sequel, and Kimberly and Thomas were killed via WordOfGod, apparently in some bizarre woodchipper accident.]]
