* The construction workers who had worked on the bridge on ''Final Destination 5''. If any survived or at least part of the project they will probably feel very guilty as they will probably wondered if their work on the bridge was a factor on the disaster. You can even see one of the workers racing to help someone but the that person falls to their death before he can help him to up.

Added DiffLines:

** Rory asking Kimberly if she knows if his death will be painful. When she doesn't have an answer, he gives her his apartment keys and asks her to get rid of "anything that will break [his] mom's heart."


* Alex is dead, we knew he was on the list. But after all that time with him, he's now gone.

* Alex is dead, we knew he was on the list. But after all that time with him, he's now gone. The fact that he died offscreen after a brick hits his head makes it worse.



** Kevin is a bit of one himself, especially after it's revealed that he was planning to propose to his girlfriend Carrie, one of the people who didn't get off the roller coaster.
** While he's more of a JerkassWoobie, you can't help but feel kinda bad for Ian in ''Final Destination 3'', as well. The scream he lets out after [[spoiler:Erin's Death]] is as bloodcurdling as it is heart-wrenching.

** Kevin is a bit of one himself, especially after it's revealed that he was planning to propose to his girlfriend Carrie, one of the people who didn't get off the roller coaster. \n And that Carrie was actually gonna cruelly break up with him.
** While he's more of a JerkassWoobie, you can't help but feel kinda bad for Ian in ''Final Destination 3'', as well. The scream he lets out after [[spoiler:Erin's Death]] is as bloodcurdling as it is heart-wrenching. Also he dies rather gruesomely.


* The end of ''Final Destination 5''. Though like most of the endings it was something to be expected, since you can't escape death. We have the two survivors that cheated death, now they move on. After hearing the freak out from the first movie, the happy mood changes to OhCrap. The plane sucks Molly out of the window seat as Sam desperately tries to hold on. She slips and dies getting sliced in half by the wing. Rather than panic Sam simply has a HeroicBSOD for a few seconds and then closes his eyes in acceptance before the fire burns him to death. Of course this turned into a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} when the landing wheel just so happens to hit the last survivor... moments after he found out the man that he killed was gonna die in a few days anyway.

** Clear Rivers's death was also rather sad in the sense that, out of every character in each Final Destination film, she was the one who managed to outsmart death, even if it meant she wasn't necessarily 'alive.' She leaves the safety of a padded cell to help victims experiencing a similar fate. In the long run, helping is what kills her.

** Whether they realize it or not, these characters are practically forced to accept death at this point in their lives, because their attempts to outrun Death [[TheProblemWithFightingDeath are ultimately futile]]. They will always be in vain since Death will come after them very shortly...as well as when they're least expecting.

* On a meta level, it's a bit of a bummer how these films have contaminated the mellow, folksy mood of Music/JohnDenver's music for so many people, who now associate his songs with Rube Goldberg-esque deaths rather than the beauty and pleasures of the open countryside.
