     Kimberly Corman 
Played by: A. J. Cook

  • Blessed with Suck: Kimberly gets the initial premonition of the highway pile-up.
  • Daddy's Girl: Though not very explored, it's obvious that she has a strong bond with her father.
  • Final Girl: Although if one counts the newspaper article from the third film as canon, then she's dead.
  • Killed Offscreen: She and Thomas die in a Death-inspired accident at some point between films 2 and 3; a newspaper clipping from a deleted scene and Word of God confirmed they're dead.
  • My Greatest Failure: 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.
  • I Miss Mom: See above.
  • The Heroine
  • Prophetic Fallacy: She didn't foresee that Isabella wasn't supposed to die in the accident.
  • Ship Tease: With Burke.

     Thomas Burke 
Played by: Michael Landes

  • Fair Cop: A good-looking state trooper.
  • Killed Offscreen: He and Kimberly die in a Death-inspired accident at some point between films 2 and 3; a newspaper clipping from a deleted scene and Word of God confirmed they're dead.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure
  • Ship Tease: With Kimberly.
  • Your Head Asplode: How he dies in the premonition. When the chain snaps and the logs start falling off, one of them smashes through his windshield and plows right through his head

     Eugene Dix 
Played by: Terrence C. Carson

  • Agent Scully: Until Nora's death.
  • 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 (fully loaded) 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.
  • Hope Spot: He almost dies when his life support machines go out, but is saved at the last minute when the back-up battery kicks on. It doesn't last, as he later dies in an explosion along with Clear.
  • Kill It with Fire: Is incinerated along with Clear.
  • Prophecy Armor: Played for drama and horror. Once it's clear how the whole situation with Death works and that he has nothing to expect but a horrible death, he snatches Burke's gun and tries to blow his brains out. All six shots in Burke's revolver turn out to be duds, which freaks him (and everybody else in the room) out even more.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Wears nerd glasses.
  • Token Minority: Is African-American. In fact, he's the first non-white survivor in the franchise.

     Rory Peters 
Played by: Jonathon Cherry

  • Blood from the Mouth: When he dies
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Rory is trisected by farm equipment that got caught up in the explosion of Kat's car after the cigarette in her hand falls into gasoline following her impalement on a piece of pipe from the car crashing.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: His intervention with Brian nearly getting run over by a van puts Brian on the list and ensures his death at the end.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Much like Billy Hitchcock in the first film.
  • Porn Stash: He asks Kimberly to hide it if he dies, along with all the stuff that would "break his mother's heart".
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Shortly before his death, he asks Kimberly to go to his apartment and get rid of "anything that'll break his mother's heart."

     Kat Jennings 

  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Just some moments after expressing actual concern for her companions of misfortune, a fireman accidentally activates her car's airbag, which blows her head back into a piece of farm equipment jutting out of the headrest.
  • Must Have Nicotine: Is smoking in her final scene, and after her death, the cigarette she was holding drops into fuel and blows the car up, which blows away more farm equipment that kills Rory above.
  • Nervous Wreck: She's already a high-strung workaholic before the accident, but she becomes even more anxious after Nora's death.

     Nora Carpenter 
Played by: Lynda Boyd

  • Blood from the Mouth: As the elevator starts choking her and just before the doors and the ceiling slice her head off.
  • Good Parents
  • I Don't Want to Die: 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.
  • Kill It with Fire: How she and her son Tim die in the premonition. Their car rams into a log and blows up.
  • Mama Bear: Tries to stop Tim from getting squashed by the pane glass, but a handyman restrains her.
  • Not Afraid to Die: After Tim's death.
  • Off with Her Head!: 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 
Played by: James Kirk

  • Death by Looking Up: When the glass is falling on him, he looks up, and it's the last thing he sees.
  • Disappeared Dad: His dad died 4 years before the events of the film.
  • Kill It with Fire: How he and his mother Nora die in the premonition. Their car rams into a log and blows up.
  • Momma's Boy
  • Too Dumb to Live: 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?note 
  • Squashed Flat: Gets crushed by falling glass when a flock of pigeons distracts the man handling it.

     Isabella Hudson 
Played by: Justina Machado

  • Mama Bear: When her water breaks while she's detained, she angrily demands the officer guarding her take her to the hospital.
  • Infant Immortality: Its part of what kept her alive since she was pregnant.
  • Pregnant Badass
  • Red Herring: She wouldn't have died in the pileup, so she never was on Death's list; she survives the film and lives as a result.

     Evan Lewis 
Played by: David Paetkau

  • Eye Scream: After slipping on the trashed spaghetti, he lands under a ladder that falls, stops, and then lands on his eye.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: See Eye Scream.
  • Kill It with Fire: How he dies in the premonition. His car explodes after ramming into a log, and he burns alive trying to get out. Then a truck barrels over him. Death uses fire in his apartment as well.
  • Jerkass: He's a smug prick who won a small fortune in the lottery.
  • Too Dumb to Live: 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. Also, he makes some really stupid decisions during the scene at his apartment which leads to his death - most notably throwing some spaghetti out the window that he later slips on.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: The majority of his death scene is spent shirtless.
  • Tempting Fate: He escapes his burning apartment and proclaims his luck, only to slip on some food (that he himself threw out the window) and land directly under the ladder that kills him.
