** Actually, it didn't quite happen that way. They first screwed the audience into thinking he might actually, improbably get away with it because he ''does'' survive the tempting fate line about being secret service. Afterwards, when he's safe, he jokes to the clerk that he hates to be a problem customer, but if he doesn't get a Milky Way bar pretty soo--

* {{Opera}} singer Maria Callas used to give ''Theatre/LaTraviata'' a NightmareFuel ending. Violetta has the IncurableCoughOfDeath and, realistically, [[HopeSpot feels much better]] just before the end -- she's supposed to say "O gioia!" (Oh joy) and drop dead. Callas would cut off her own line, say "O gioi--" and [[DiesWideOpen die with her eyes wide open]].

There are any number of reasons to kill a character, whether major, minor, or {{mook|s}}ish, in the middle of a sentence. Firstly, in an AnyoneCanDie story, it's a great way to show that not only can anyone die, but ''they can die at any time''. (Which can make for great drama and suspense over the fates of your favorite characters). Secondly, it can be a great way for an AntiHero to show off his {{no nonsense|Nemesis}} {{Badass}} nature by killing an antagonist in the middle of some sort of threat, or as a more lethal version of TalkToTheFist. (Likewise, it can be a way to show a villain avert the classic WhyDontYouJustShootHim scenario). It can be a way of showing that a story is on the gritty and cynical end of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. Lastly, it could just be that the author doesn't care much for interminable {{Final Speech}}es, and chooses to subvert that trope.

* Partially subverted in ''Franchise/StarWars: VideoGame/JediKnightIIJediOutcast''. While the MadScientist is giving an insane speech about how the galaxy will tremble before him, [[{{Badass}} Katarn]] casually throws his lightsaber into the ship's shield generator, leaving it wide open to attack. Followed by a cheesy PreAssKickingOneLiner.
