*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TVqgMF_fg4 Memorial]] is a surprisingly sadder than expected tune that plays during the memorial held for the McKinley Speedway victims.

** [[{{Goth}} Ian and Erin]] are by far the biggest. For awhile they were [[EnsembleDarkhorse HUGE ensemble darkhorses]], particularly Erin, for their DeadpanSnarker tendencies. However, as time goes on, more and more haters have arisen on account of them being ''utter'' [[AssholeVictims assholes]] and thinly written stereotypes.
** [[FinalGirl Kimberly Corman]] and [[TheLancer Thomas Burke]] from Part 2. Some people thought they were likable, friendly people who did the best they could in a bad situation. Others hate them for being [[TheGenericGuy bland]], [[{{Narm}} poorly acted]], and [[TooDumbToLive inhumanly stupid]].
** [[RichBitch Janet]] from The Final Destination. Some fans find her bitchy tendencies annoying, while others enjoy her [[{{Narm}} narmy]] one liners and find her to be [[SoBadItsGood so bad she's good.]] Being one of the more developed characters of the movie also helps.

* RewatchBonus: Lots. It often takes multiple viewings to catch all the clues about a character's death. Many of these clues are in blink-and-you-miss-it moments. As an example, the first complicated death trap in Final Destination 2 contains too many references [[EyeScream to eyes]] [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice to count]].

* SeasonalRot[=/=]Sequelitis: The second is arguably better than the original, but while the third film still has a considerably large fanbase, it's generally agreed to be worse than its predecessors (even though it has [[CriticalDissonance the second-highest rating in the series]] on Rotten Tomatoes). And many fans seem to outright hate the fourth one. The fifth one, however, completely averts this, and is usually seen as a rival to the first two that sent the series out on a high note.

* {{Sequelitis}}: The second is arguably better than the original, but the third film is almost universally agreed to be far worse than both (though the third film has a considerably large fanbase and the second highest series rating on Rotten Tomatoes). And many fans seem to outright hate the fourth one. The fifth one completely ''[[AvertedTrope averts]]'' this.
* TheWoobie: A lot of the final survivors in the movies can be counted as this as they are the ones that witnessed people around them died while scrambling to figure out what's going on and struggle to survive. A stand out example would be Wendy from the third movie because she watched her boyfriend died in her vision, has a personal connection to one of the survivors (Julie her sister), is competent and nice enough that we can sympathize with her and Mary Elizabeth Winstead's performance ended up made her into an EnsembleDarkhorse.

** [[PluckyComicRelifer Billy Hitchcock]] and [[JerkJock Carter Horton]] from Part 1 are both very popular. The former is seen as endearing for being a NiceGuy who provides some much-needed comic relief, while the latter is loved for his JerkWithAHeartOfGold status along with his CharacterDevelopment (as well as being one of the few Final Destination characters to really have a change of heart by the end of the film).

*** This is especially ironic in the case of Carter, as [[spoiler: he was originally set to survive the first film, but died because test audiences regarded him as TheScrappy. Uh, woops?]]

** [[FinalGirl Wendy]] [[TheWoobie Christensen]] and [[LovableJock Kevin]] [[PluckyComicRelief Fischer]] from Part 3. While obviously, as the leads, they were meant to be somewhat likeable, their popularity far exceeds expectations, often being held up as two of the best characters in the whole series [[TheyJustDidntCare despite being in a movie where all the creators cared about was how to kill everyone.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HesJustHiding: [[EnsembleDarkhorse Julie, Wendy and Kevin]], the three final survivors from the third movie due to the latter two's immense popularity. It helps that a lot of alternative endings and the novel adaptation of the movie support this theory and their death was never confirmed in-universe unlike the other final survivors.

** Hunt Wynorski from the same movie also qualifies because he's an {{Expy}} of Evan Lewis from ''2'', except with all the latter's faults turned UpToEleven (say what you will about [[BaseBreaker Janet]], but at least her reasons for not attending the memorial service were reasonable and didn't involve "staying behind just so I can mack a hot girl")



** Frankie Cheeks, also from the third film, for his obnoxious, creepy, pervy personality (to the point that he got on Death's list simply because the targets of his disturbing crush happened to be on the roller coaster Death was going to crash).
