'''Basic Trope''': Everyone in the main cast is dead by the time the credits roll.
* '''Straight''': Alice, Bob, and Catherine all die by the end of the movie.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Alice, Bob, and Catherine are all murdered in [[RasputinianDeath extremely drawn out]], [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill painful ways]].
** Every single character that has been shown or mentioned in the movie is dead in the end.
** [[ApocalypseHow Class X-4 Apocalypse]]: the entire universe dies. As all lives in the universe are snuffed out one by one, the viewer [[TearJerker is shown each lives' thoughts and (doomed to be unfulfilled) aspirations]].
** [[ApocalypseHow/ClassZ Class Z Apocalypse (Metaphysical Annihilation)]]: Not only the entire Omniverse ceases to exist, it's a Metaphysical Annihilation that erases them from ''time itself''; In short, not only is all life destroyed, '''[[RetGone it never existed to begin with]]'''.
* '''Downplayed''':
** Every main character in the film is brutally injured in the ending.
** AnyoneCanDie; one of the protagonists is murdered in the ending.
** FinalGirl
* '''Justified''':
** Alice, Bob, and Catherine are all killed in a SuicideMission, no one had any expectation of them coming back alive anyways.
** Alternatively, Alice, Bob, and Catherine all have dangerous jobs and the story takes place over a long span of time, thus making their fates inevitable.
* '''Inverted''':
** Alice, Bob and Catherine are all sent on the above mission, [[EverybodyLives but no one is killed]].
** Alice, Bob and Catherine die early in the beginning, and [[BackFromTheDead the story is about them]] [[DefectorFromParadise finding a way]] [[EscapedFromHell back to life]].
** Everybody dies ''except'' for Alice, Bob and Catherine.
* '''Subverted''': Alice, Bob, and Catherine are killed, but they are OnlyMostlyDead
* '''Double Subverted''': But they are KilledOffForReal later on.
* '''Parodied''':
** Alice, Bob, and Catherine survive the suicide mission, manage to live through fifteen consecutive [[UsefulNotes/NuclearWeapons nuclear strikes]], {{dodge the bullet}} from the [[AxCrazy crazed assassin]], and make it back to headquarters to report on what happened, only to be [[ShootTheShaggyDog killed by]] [[EvilOverlord General]] [[NameDrop Kilemall]].
** The entire cast dies by [[RocksFallEveryoneDies falling rocks.]]
* '''Zig Zagged''': "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE... just kidding. OMG THERE'S A BOMB... it's turned off. A METEOR IS HEADING FOR EARTH... it missed."
* '''Averted''': None of them or only one of them die.
* '''Enforced''': "We're getting to the end of the story, kill them all!"
* '''Lampshaded''': "'''OH GOD, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE! AAAAAAAAA'''-" *boom*

* '''Discussed''': "Is this the part of the movie where we all start to die?"
* '''Conversed''': "So it's like when they kill characters off one by one before the end of a movie?"
* '''Deconstructed''': The character thinks through his reasons for killing everyone and decides not to.
