''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes2006''



* The gas station attendant (named Jeb, Jr. in a spin-off comic) from ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'' remake sends travelers in the direction of the mutants, and in exchange is given any valuables the victims had on them. By the events of the film, years of guilt have caught up with him, and he commits suicide by [[AteHisGun blowing his brains out]] in an outhouse.
** Ironically, this is subverted in the original Creator/WesCraven film, wherein the gas station attendant, Old Fred, is affiliated with Papa Jupiter's brood solely by virtue of [[spoiler:blood relation, being Jupiter's father]], but he attempts to steer the Carter family away from their doom in the midst of his own attempts to escape from Papa Jupiter, and ends up paying for both actions with his life.

* {{Invoked|Trope}}, like [[DeconstructorFleet practically everything else]] in ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods'' with [[HarbingerOfImpendingDoom Mordecai]], who warns the teens away from the eponymous cabin. [[spoiler: He's the ButtMonkey for everyone else in the secret organization, as he's one of the few that [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously treats their job seriously]]. Surprisingly, he also has elements of the OnlySaneMan, because he appreciates how serious the AncientConspiracy is and recognizes that Marty could become a SpannerInTheWorks. Which is exactly what happens when [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass nobody else takes him seriously]].]].
