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


!! William Bludworth (Creator/TonyTodd)

%%* AmbiguouslyEvil
%%* CreepyMortician
%%* 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
* BigBad: Of the entire series.
* 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.
* 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. This comes across as [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne rather oddly specific]] since Flight 180 shows that Death himself has no problem killing mentally ill people and [[WouldHurtAChild even babies]] in his grand plan.
** 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 Buddah's statue he previously sneered at.
%%* DramaticWind
* ForTheEvulz: Suggested in the novelization of the third film, and ''Dead Man's Hand''.
** Outrightly confirmed in the first film. Just watch Valerie Lewton's death. That is all.
%%* TheGrimReaper
%%* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Whenever an AssholeVictim is involved.
* LivingShadow: What it is most commonly appears as.
%%* RubeGoldbergHatesYourGuts
%%* UltimateEvil
%%* TrapMaster
* 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
%%* BlessedWithSuck
* FailureToSaveMurder: The Wagner family all blame him for George's death.
%%* TheHero
* ShipTease: With Clear.
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: And offscreen.

!!Clear Rivers
%%* BrokenBird
* 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.]]
* 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.]]
%%* TheLancer: In the second movie.
* ShipTease: With Alex.
%%* ShooTheDog
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: Dies near the end of the second film with Eugene.

!!Carter Horton
* JerkJock: Throughout the movie, he's pretty much physically incapable of seeing Alex without picking fights.
%%* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
%%* TemptingFate
* TookALevelInKindness: In the last part of the movie.

!!Valerie Lewton
* BrokenBird: The Flight 180 crash really effected her.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Easily 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.
%%* SurvivorGuilt

!!Billy Hitchcock
%%* DiedStandingUp
%%* TheFool
* OffWithHisHead: Just the top half.
* TemptingFate:
--> (To Carter) '''Billy''':Oh but you will be! You're '''dead'''! You're '''dead'''! '''AND YOU AIN'T TAKING ME WITH YOU!'''

!!Terry Chaney
%%* LookBothWays

!!Tod Waggner
* DrivenToSuicide: What his death looks like, but actually he was trying to move on.
* FailedASpotCheck: The blue water on the bathroom floor should have been quite easy to spot.
* MeaningfulName: "Tod" means "death" in German.

[[folder:Final Destination 2]]
!!Kimberly Corman
%%* BlessedWithSuck
* DaddysGirl: Though not very explored, it's obvious that she has a strong bond with her father.
%%* FinalGirl
* MyGreatestFailure: Failing to stop her mother from being killed, it doesn't help that she had been distracted by watching a news report of Tod Waggner's death.
%%* IMissMom
%%* {{The Hero}}ine
* PropheticFallacy: She didn't foresee that [[spoiler: Isabella wasn't supposed to die in the accident]].

%%* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe

* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Just some moments after expressing actual concern for her companions of misfortune.
%%* MustHaveNicotine
* NervousWreck: She's already really nervous before the accident, but she becomes even worse after [[spoiler: Nora's death]].

!!Nora Carpenter
%%* GoodParents
* IDontWantToDie: Despite her accepting her upcoming death, she says this word for word when her death actually does come up. Granted, she was probably hoping that the way she died would be something more peaceful and wouldn't end with her suffering the way it did.
%%* MamaBear
* NotAfraidToDie: After [[spoiler: Tim's death]].
* OffWithHerHead: [[spoiler: Her head gets trapped inside an elevator booth with the rest of her stuck outside on the current floor. Then the elevator starts going up...]]

!!Tim Carpenter
%%* DeathByLookingUp
%%* DisappearedDad
%%* MommasBoy
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:The first thing he does when he sees someone telling him to stay away from pigeons is to jump straight into a flock of pigeons, causing them to spook a machine operator and drop a huge pane of glass on him. What the hell were you thinking, Tim?]]
%%* SquashedFlat

!!Isabella Hudson
%%* PregnantBadass
* RedHerring: [[spoiler: She wouldn't have died in the car accident, so she never was on Death's list.]]

!!Evan Lewis
* EyeScream
* JerkAss
* TooDumbToLive: The other survivors at least made some attempt to stop or avoid the pile up in the premonition, but Evan just speeds straight through, hoping for the best.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: The majority of his death scene is spent shirtless.
* TemptingFate: After escaping his burning appartment, 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 kills him.

[[folder:Final Destination 3]]
!!Wendy Christensen
%%* DeathIsASadThing
* BloodSplatteredInnocents: [[spoiler: Happens with Frankie and Lewis's death.]]
* ControlFreak: By her own admission.
* DefrostingIceQueen: She is kinda cold and distant towards Kevin at first.
%%* GreyRainOfDepression
%%* ForgetsToEat
* FromBadToWorse: She becomes highly depressed over the loss of Jason and Carrie. Cue to Death killing off the rest of her friends and then going after her sister Julie and Wendy herself.
%%* FinalGirl
%%* {{The Hero}}ine

!!Kevin Fischer
* BloodSplatteredInnocents: [[spoiler: Happens with Frankie and Lewis's death.]]
%%* TheLancer: To Wendy
%%* LovableJock:

!!Ian [=McKinley=]
* AgentScully: Until [[spoiler: Erin's death]].
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: Tries killing Wendy because Erin died.]]
%%* DeadpanSnarker
%%* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe
* JerkAss: Even before his [[spoiler: SanitySlippage]], Ian mocks Kevin & Wendy and suggesting that she kill herself. All for trying to warn him and Erin that death is coming for them.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler: After Erin dies.]]
* TheSmartGuy: He's interested in physics.
* UngratefulBastard: [[spoiler: Wendy saves Ian's life and he 'still' tries to kill her. His motive of "She killed Erin" becomes especially hollow when Wendy had absolutely nothing to do with Erin's death.]]

!!Erin Ulmer
%%* AgentScully
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: Like her boyfriend]]
%%* DeadpanSnarker
%%* FieryRedhead
* HumanPincushion: [[spoiler:She's killed by nails shot through her head]].
* JerkAss: Like her boyfriend, she mocks and demeans Kevin and Wendy for trying to help them.
* TheSmartGuy: Like Ian, she's interested in physics as well.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Could be named "Ian in a wig." There's a reason that she and Ian have an almost identical set of tropes.

!! Lewis Romero
* AngryBlackMan: Pretty much yelling at someone in every scene
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: Like most the cast is]]
%%* DumbMuscle
%%* JerkJock
%%* TheFriendNobodyLikes

!!Ashley Freund and Ashlyn Halperin
* TheDitz: Two of 'em.
* KillItWithFire: [[spoiler:They both die when their tanning beds malfunction and they are burned alive]].

%%* NiceGirl
* MeaningfulName: Both have names starting with "Ash".
* MsFanservice: Oh my yes. Check out their trip to the tanning salon. [[spoiler:Until they are immolated]].

[[folder:The Final Destination]]

!! Lori Milligan

* AssholeVictim: A racist jerk whose death is mourned by a grand total of zero people.
* DeathByRacism: Went to George's house to burn a cross on his lawn [[UngratefulBastard because George stopped him from getting killed by going back to his wife inside the stadium]]. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Death does not approve]], to the point of [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments dragging him behind his truck while War's anit-racism song "Why Can't We Be Friends?" plays on his radio]].
%%* JerkAss

* RedHerring: [[spoiler: At first, the audience expects Olivia to die from the haywire LASIK machine. Instead, they get thrown a curveball when she dies as a result of stepping her heel on a teddy bear's eye, which popped out earlier in the scene. She loses her balance and falls through the window and onto a car below]].
