'''Beware of spoilers. A lot of characters die in this series.'''


!! William Bludworth
--> '''Played by:''' Creator/TonyTodd

->''"In death there are no accidents, no coincidences, no mishaps, and no escapes."''

%%* AmbiguouslyEvil
* CreepyMortician: Works as a mortician and is the man who informs the premonition survivors that Death is after them.
%%* TheCreepyUndertaker
%%* DarkIsNotEvil
* EvilSoundsDeep: 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.
%%* LargeHam
%%* MagicalNegro
%%* MrExposition
* ScaryBlackMan: He's played by ''Creator/TonyTodd''.
%%* SophisticatedAsHell
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Had he not talked about how to cheat death by [[spoiler:killing someone else off]], we wouldn't have [[spoiler:Peter to went JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope and try to kill Molly]]. Though it's up in the air if he intended for that to happen or not.

!! Death
* DeathSong: 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''.
* DisproportionateRetribution: The reason it makes anyone who somehow escapes the initial accident of each film a CruelAndUnusualDeath. 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.
* DramaticWind: 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.
* EldritchAbomination: 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.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: 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 HappyEndingMassage 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.
* ForTheEvulz: 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.
* TheGrimReaper: Kills people who cheat him.
* TheHeavy: For the entire series, Death is the main antagonist and the one the characters are tying to avoid.
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: Death has no physical form; he's effectively a force of nature.
* HopeSpot: 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, [[DownerEnding none of the methods actually beat Death in the long run]].
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: 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.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Whenever an AssholeVictim is involved.
* KillItWithFire: 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.)
* LivingShadow: What it is most commonly appears as.
* RubeGoldbergHatesYourGuts: Some of Death's victims fall to this. [[spoiler: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.]]
* TrapMaster: Some death scenes are set up to start a chain of events that activates a "booby trap".
* UltimateEvil: He's a completely invisible force taking out the Death-cheaters one by one.
* WouldHurtAChild: 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.

[[folder:Final Destination]]
!!Alex Browning
-->'''Played by:''' Devon Sawa
* BlessedWithSuck: Alex has the premonition of the plane exploding.
* FailureToSaveMurder: The Wagner family all blame him for George and Tod's deaths.
%%* TheHero
* HeroWithBadPublicity: After the plane tragedy, he's treated as a freak by his classmates ''and teachers'', and some even believe that he is responsible.
* KilledOffscreen: [[spoiler:Dies between films 1 and 2]].
* KillItWithFire: How he dies in the premonition. He's burned alive as the plane explodes, and it's shown in graphic detail.
* TheRival: Almost every scene with him and Carter results in some sort of fight until the end of the movie.
* ShipTease: With Clear.
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: And offscreen.
* WrongfullyAccused: Is falsely suspected of being responsible for the deaths in the movie. He has to evade the police in order to save Clear.

!!Clear Rivers
--> '''Played by:''' Ali Larter
* BrokenBird: Checks herself into a mental institution for the second film, and she is not the same, [[spoiler:having lost all her friends anyway.]]
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: Her father.
* FinalGirl: Of the original group, [[spoiler: but not in the second movie]].
* GenreSavvy: 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. [[spoiler: 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.
* KillItWithFire: Almost explodes in her car if not Alex's intervention. [[spoiler: Death eventually gets her by incineration in the second film along with Eugene.]] This or DisneyVillainDeath is also how she dies in the premonition.
%%* TheLancer: In the second movie.
* ParentalNeglect: Her mother does this when her father is murdered and she becomes involved with a lowlife.
* ShipTease: With Alex.
%%* ShooTheDog
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: Dies near the end of the second film with Eugene.
* TookALevelInBadass: 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.

!!Carter Horton
--> '''Played by:''' Kerr Smith
* KillItWithFire[=/=]DisneyVillainDeath: Seeing as how the plane exploded in mid-air, one of these two is how Carter dies in the premonition.
* JerkJock: Throughout the movie, he's pretty much physically incapable of seeing Alex without picking fights.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:Saves Alex's life at the end, but at the cost of his own.]]
* TheRival: Carter is in a feud with Alex from before the movie starts to the very end.
* TemptingFate: [[spoiler: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.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: In the last part of the movie.

!!Valerie Lewton
--> '''Played by:''' Kristen Cloke
* BrokenBird: The Flight 180 crash really affected her.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Easily one of the most complicated, gruesome and longest deaths ever. The poor girl.
* FailedASpotCheck: 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 TooDumbToLive.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: 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.
* KillItWithFire: How she dies in the premonition. She is still on the plane when it blows up.
%%* SurvivorGuilt

* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Alex.
* KillItWithFire[=/=]DisneyVillainDeath: One of these two is how he dies in the premonition plane explosion.

* KillItWithFire[=/=]DisneyVillainDeath: One of these two is how she dies in the plane explosion.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Other than asking Alex to trade seats with someone, she is not onscreen for long, and she and Marsha stay on the plane and die in the explosion.

%%* IMissMom
%%* {{The Hero}}ine

* WalkingShirtlessScene: The majority of his death scene is spent shirtless.
* TemptingFate: After escaping his burning apartment, he comments on how lucky he is, only to slip on some food (that he himself threw out the window) and land directly under the ladder that skewers him through his head.

* SquashedFlat: [[spoiler:A falling crane smashes him.]]

* YourHeadAsplode: [[spoiler:Crushed between a pair of weights, like a melon.]]

!!Ashley Freund and Ashlyn Halperin
--> '''Played by:''' Chelan Simmons and Crystal Lowe, respectively

!! Andy Kewzer
--> '''Played by:''' Andrew Fiscella

* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: How he dies in the premonition. A piece of shrapnel slices him and his wife in half.

* TheDragon: [[spoiler:Becomes this for Death.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Betrays his remaining friends and tries to kill them to appease Death.]]

* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:Gets impaled with a large skewer by Sam to stop him killing Molly.]]

!!Isaac Palmer
--> '''Played by:''' P. J. Byrne
* AssholeVictim: Makes a couple insults to the acupuncturist prior to her leaving the room, plus she doesn't like him bringing his phone in. She's the last person he ever sees, literally, and the place she puts his phone plays a part when it rings a second time.
* DeathByRacism: Makes a racist joke towards his acupuncturist and a Buddha statue, saying she can't understand him because she's Chinese, and then makes a "2 million people can't be Wong" snark. He dies via the Chinese Buddha figure falling on his head.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Wears glasses except for his death scene, and isn't particularly a nice guy.
* HumanPincushion: Was undergoing acupuncture treatment at the time of his death, and when his bed collapses, it drives the needles too far into his body; this helps with his eventual death.

* YourHeadAsplode: Crushed under a Buddha ornament.
