Killed Off For Real: F Ilm

  • Every villain save Catwoman in the Tim Burton Batman films die. The Joker famously averts his own trope, Max Schreck gets a Family-Unfriendly Death, and The Penguin gets a tear-jerking death. Catwoman survived because she has nine lives.
    Catwoman:Two lives left. I think I'll save one for next Christmas. But in the meantime, how about a kiss Santi-Claus?
  • In The Black Hole, Reinhardt's robot Maximilian drives a spinning blade attachment through Alex Durant's stomach.
  • The 1990s version of Godzilla dies at the end of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. He is not revived for another film, he's not faking it, he does NOT get better. It's one of the few films in the Godzilla franchise in which Godzilla dies and stays dead. Although his son (who was THOUGHT to be dead) takes his place at the end of the film.
  • Gallaxhar in Monsters vs. Aliens.
  • Scream (1996). The Genre Savvy heroine makes sure the villain stays dead.
    Randy Meeks: Careful. This is the moment when the supposedly-dead killer comes back to life for one last scare.
    [Billy starts to rise, only to receive a headshot from Sidney.]
    Sidney Prescott: Not in my movie.
  • Stargate Continuum: After dozens of Ba'al's clones have been killed throughout the last few seasons of the series and he has continually escaped death to return yet again, both the last clone and the original Ba'al are finally killed for good by SG-1.
  • Data in Star Trek: Nemesis. Data is revealed to have been rebuilt in Star Trek: Countdown, the canon prequel to the reboot Star Trek film, though.
  • An in-universe example: any video game character who dies outside of their game in Wreck-It Ralph is dead for good, as opposed to just respawning a moment later. True to Disney tradition, the only ones who actually do are the Big Bad, Turbo, and several thousand Cy-Bugs.
  • Several characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe fall victim to this trope
