- Played by: Tony Todd
"In death there are no accidents, no coincidences, no mishaps, and no escapes."
- Creepy Mortician: Works as a mortician and is the man who informs the premonition survivors that Death is after them.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Averted. It isn't clear what Bludworth's role in everything is, but he appears to be at worst a neutral party and at best a guide for the survivors.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Had he not talked about how to cheat death by killing someone else off, we wouldn't have Peter to went Jumping Off the Slippery Slope and try to kill Molly. Though it's up in the air if he intended for that to happen or not.
- Death Song: Many of Death's kills are signaled by music playing, either in the general area or near the survivor who received the initial premonition. The song is either a specific song that gets played multiple times, or a song that's relevant in some way to the current death. Examples include playing "Rollercoaster of Love" for the tanning bed deaths in 3 since a rollercoaster was the initial accident, and playing "Why Can't We Be Friends" when killing the racist jerk in The Final Destination.
- Disproportionate Retribution: The reason it makes anyone who somehow escapes the initial accident of each film a Cruel and Unusual Death. Trying to cheat it apparently ticks it off enough that it's going to make you suffer in the worst possible ways before you actually die and by the time it's over your corpse is going to be completely mangled.
- Dramatic Wind: Sometimes uses wind to help start the events that will kill people, like in Issac's case in the fifth film, where it sets a stand on fire and starts a chain reaction that leads to him getting his head squashed by a Buddha statue.
- Eldritch Abomination: Death's real form is never seen and it is treated as an inhuman force of nature, its motives in causing such cruel deaths are inscrutible to all beings except itself, and it is so powerful and omnipresent that it can claim whatever humans it wants before directing its attention to some other corner of the planet.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Death seems to have a problem with racism.
- When Carter is preparing to burn a cross on George's lawn in The Final Destination, Death causes his truck radio to start playing "Why Can't We Be Friends?"; then it kills him in a manner not too dissimilar to how racist lynch mobs would execute their victims.
- Death does the same thing to Isaac, an idiotic sleaze who tries to invoke a Happy Ending Massage at an Asian parlor after they point out that he's not at a brothel. Isaac's head is crushed by the same Buddha's statue he previously sneered at.
- For the Evulz: It's suggested in the novelization of the third film, and Dead Man's Hand, that the extremely cruel deaths are such because Death finds them to be fun.
- The Grim Reaper: Kills people who cheat him.
- The Heavy: For the entire series, Death is the main antagonist and the one the characters are tying to avoid.
- He Who Must Not Be Seen: Death has no physical form; he's effectively a force of nature.
- Hope Spot: If the theory that Death causes the premonitions itself in the first place is true, then it seems Death really enjoys lending people a bit of luck and then snatching it away as brutally as possible. Also, each movie generally features a hope spot as the protagonists seem to find a method to escape Death. While it would seem there are ways to slow Death down, even for as much as a year or two as Clear did, none of the methods actually beat Death in the long run.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: One of Death's personal favorite methods of killing. The first film only saw one impalement through a cleaving knife, but the other movies have Death use anything convenient to impale, both in premonitions and in real life.
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: Whenever an Asshole Victim is involved.
- Kill It with Fire: Another signature Death tactic. Three of the five starting premonitions involve flames/explosions of some sort, and every film has at least one fire scene where someone dies (sometimes to the fire, sometimes not.)
- Living Shadow: What it is most commonly appears as.
- Rube Goldberg Hates Your Guts: Some of Death's victims fall to this. The best example are the ladies in the tanning beds when a leaking slushie and an air conditioner trap them in the beds and short-circuits them, causing the beds to overheat and eventually ignite in flames.
- Trap Master: Some death scenes are set up to start a chain of events that activates a "booby trap".
- Ultimate Evil: He's a completely invisible force taking out the Death-cheaters one by one.
- Would Hurt a Child: There's a baby onboard the plane that Death blows up in the first movie. He also crushed a young teenage kid under a plate glass window.
- Played by: Devon Sawa
- Blessed with Suck: Alex has the premonition of the plane exploding.
- Failure-to-Save Murder: The Wagner family all blame him for George and Tod's deaths.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: After the plane tragedy, he's treated as a freak by his classmates and teachers, and some even believe that he is responsible.
- Killed Offscreen: Dies between films 1 and 2.

- Ship Tease: With Clear.
- Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: And offscreen.

- Deceased Parents Are the Best: Her father.
- Final Girl: Of the original group, but not in the second movie.
- Genre Savvy: She institutionalizes herself between the first and the second film, which is the only reason she's lived so long, as mental institutions are more or less designed to keep you alive. She's dead in a matter of days once she leaves.
- In the first movie, she's the only passenger to leave of her own accord following Alex's post-premonition breakdown.
- Kill It with Fire: Almost explodes in her car if not Alex's intervention. Death eventually gets her by incineration in the second film along with Eugene. This or Disney Villain Death is also how she dies in the premonition.
- Parental Neglect: Her mother does this when her father is murdered and she becomes involved with a lowlife.
- Ship Tease: With Alex.
- Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: Dies near the end of the second film with Eugene.
- Took a Level in Badass: As the only person who's dealt with death's design in the second film, she instructs everyone on what to do and how. She's the most observant and alert when it comes to the new cast of characters, fitting her to find death traps and put an end to them sooner than most of the others.
- Played by: Kerr Smith
- Kill It with Fire/Disney Villain Death: Seeing as how the plane exploded in mid-air, one of these two is how Carter dies in the premonition.
- Jerk Jock: Throughout the movie, he's pretty much physically incapable of seeing Alex without picking fights.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Saves Alex's life at the end, but at the cost of his own.
- The Rival: Carter is in a feud with Alex from before the movie starts to the very end.
- Tempting Fate: At the end of the movie, he saves Alex's life from a falling sign, and says "I told you you were next!". When Alex says Death skipped him, Carter then asks, "So who's next?" Cue the sign swinging down on Carter and hitting him just as the screen cuts to black and the film ends, going into the credits; the second movie makes it clear Carter didn't make it.
- Took a Level in Kindness: In the last part of the movie.
- Played by: Kristen Cloke
- Broken Bird: The Flight 180 crash really affected her.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: Easily one of the most complicated, gruesome and longest deaths ever. The poor girl.
- Failed a Spot Check: Much like the case of Tod and the blue water, you'd think that she would've noticed the vodka spilling out of her cracked mug all over the floor. Or even worse, all over her computer monitor. Doubles as a case of Too Dumb to Live.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: The first victim of an impalement in the Final Destination series, and the only one in the original movie. When trying to get up after getting stabbed by computer glass, she knocks down the knife block and one of them lands in her chest. The oven exploding finishes the job a few seconds later.

- Black Dude Dies First: Averted; he's one of the last people to die.
- Driven to Suicide: He attempts to shoot himself in the head after he witnesses Nora getting decapitated, but the gun doesn't fire. Death kills you when it's your turn, and no sooner; his move was an attempt to prove he was in control of his life.
