* 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?

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** [[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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CrapsackWorld: Not too much different from our own... aside from the fact that Death is apparently a sentient, unstoppable, malevolent force of nature that frequently kills scores of random, fairly innocent, and often young people in horrifically violent and painful ways just ForTheEvulz.

* ShaggyDogStory[=/=]ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler:Death wins. It always wins. By WordOfGod, every protagonist involved with a "premonition" dies anyway, making their survival of the accident pointless.]]

* WouldHurtAChild: Averted. There's a baby onboard the plane that Death blows up in the first movie. Then he crushes a young teenage kid under a plate glass window in the sequel. This is the Grim Reaper we're talking about after all, you really think he'd have any more sympathy for kids than adults?.

* BalancingDeathsBooks: The driving force behind the films. People were supposed to die, but they cheated and got out of it. So now Death is going to get his revenge, by killing them off in excruciating and painful ways.

to:

* XanatosGambit: Death always wins, regardless of what those on Death's list do to spite it. Given that nobody lives forever, no survivor can elude Death indefinitely. There is only one proven way for a survivor to escape the list which is to kill someone else and take their lifespan- but this gives Death its desired victim anyway and fills the rift in its design.

** A particularly egregious example is the screw that lands on the balance beam in the fifth movie, which somehow manages to go unnoticed not only by Candice, her coaches and Peter but also by the gymnast who uses it next and [[spoiler: ultimately steps on it.]]
