This page is for characters in Final Destination 5 only. For characters in other films go to their seperate page.
- Played by: Nicholas D'Agosto
- Blessed With Suck: Like all of the visionaries in the series.
- The Fatalist: While he doesn't want to fall victim to Death, he does note how unlikely his odds of defeating it will be, and carries out his daily routine rather than try to run or hide, being aware of how nowhere is really safe.
- Half the Man He Used to Be: How he dies in the premonition. A piece of metal slices his body in half.
- Played by: Emma Bell
- Break the Cutie
- Everyone Loves Blondes: a nice, blonde woman who Sam is crushed to lose his relationship with.
- Half the Woman She Used to Be: Gets sucked out the window of the original film's plane and collides with the wing, which rips her in half.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold
- Love Martyr: Ultimately. She broke up with Sam, not because she didn't love him, but because she thought she was holding him back from his dream of going to Paris.
- Team Mom: although there's not as much of a team as there is in the other movies.
- Played by: Arlen Escarpeta
- Black Dude Dies First: Inverted. He dies last.
- Born Unlucky: he came close to missing the bus in the first place -which would have saved his life-, gets mistreated by some of his subordinates at the plant, and the guy he ends up accidentally killing had an aneurysm, keeping Nathan from surviving due to getting his years.
- Due to the Dead: zigzagged, he jokes a little at the initial memorial, but seems more somber after Candice dies and attends Roy's wake.
- Squashed Flat: Crushed by falling debris from the first movie's exploding plane.
- Token Black Friend: The sole black member of the main cast and a close friend of Sam and Peter.
- Played by: Miles Fisher
- Alas, Poor Villain: At the end of the day, Peter was just a random guy who saw his girlfriend die and didnt want to join her. What he did was brutal and wrong, but the his original sin was just wanting to live.
- Ax-Crazy: At the climax.
- Composite Character: If the series couldn't get any Omen-esque enough, Peter at the climax eventually fulfills the role of that of the Anti-Christ's protectors (Mrs. Baylock, Ann Thorn, etc.) who are the Big Bad's disciples who acts as the direct human antagonists.
- Interestingly enough, both Peter and Mrs. Baylock both die in a kitchen when attempting to kill the protagonist, who kills him/her with cooking utensils (Mrs. Baylock by carving fork and Peter by skewer).
- Additionally, the way he dies in the premonition by having a bunch of poles coming down on him not only nods to Father Brennan's death (who only had one pole speared him) in the first Omen film, but also ironically how Ann Thorn kills the second Omen film's protagonist Richard by stabbing him with three of the Daggers of Megiddo all at once.
- Deadpan Snarker: Already had a bit of a downplayed Jerkass air to him before he goes crazy.
- Dirty Coward: At the climax, he tries to kill Sam and Molly to save his own skin.
- The Dragon: Becomes this for Death. Death, however, has a sense of honour, so the Jerkass dies anyway.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Peter tells to his friends how he had the opportunity to kill random persons on the street, without any repercussion, stealing their remaining lifetime, but he refrained from doing so, because he couldn't see a reason for them deserving to die. His friends are much relieved. For a very short time, though, as then he starts getting more threatening.
- FaceHeel Turn: Betrays his remaining friends and tries to kill them to appease Death. Death, who has a sense of honour - even if it is a twisted and maniacal one - decides he won't have that and Peter goes out too!
- The Heavy: He is the only direct physical antagonist in the series, as Death never had a physical form and attacks protagonists in staged freak accidents unlike Peter who just outright tries to kill his remaining friends by his own direct hand.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Gets impaled with a large skewer by Sam to stop him killing Molly.
- This is also how he dies in the premonition. A bunch of poles would have come down on him, with one of the poles stabbing him in the head.
- In the Back: Where Sam impales him.
- Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: After Candice's death.
- Leave No Witnesses: Tries to kill Molly after he shoots and kills Agent Block. But Sam stops him before he can.
- Pet the Dog: He did try to warn Dennis about Death and his list, and seems reluctant at the idea of killing Sam.
- Sanity Slippage: After Candice's death.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: Near the end of the movie.
- Tragic Villain: Peter definitely lost his mind at the end, but the only reason why hes so crazy is that he wants to live.
- Walking Spoiler: There's a reason most of his character tropes are censored.
Agent Jim Block
- Played by: Courtney B. Vance
- Agent Scully: Towards the whole "Death-is-following-us" thing. Subverted as the film goes on.
- Badass Longcoat: A tough, investigative man who wears a longboat.
- By-the-Book Cop: He conducts his investigation carefully, and without overstepping his bounds.
- In the Back: Shot by Peter, who claims his life force to avoid Death; Block was the person investigating the bridge collapse, meaning he wasn't involved with the collapse himself and was therefore never in danger of dying.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He looks for any signs of suspicious activity, but is also willing to recognize the signs that Sam is innocent and still try to protect him and the others.
- Played by: Jacqueline MacInnes Wood
- Ambiguous Disorder: Claims to "get weird" at tragedies, after giggling to a joke at the funeral, although it's unclear if this is an actual disorder or just an excuse.
- Disney Villain Death: After the botched LASIK surgery, she stumbles out a window and falls onto a car.
- Eye Scream: Due to a malfunctioning LASIK machine.
- Hidden Depths: engages in Drowning My Sorrows with the others shortly after Candice dies, did get off the bus when Sam had his freak out, doesn't judge Sam over his vision.
- Hope Spot: After getting out of the laser machine, she is frazzled, distressed and blinded in one eye but otherwise alright. And then she trips up, falls through a window and falls to her death.
- Naughty by Night: implied by how she shows up for work in a musicians van, wearing a revealing outfit before changing into something more conservative. The shooting script describes her as having some loose glitter from a nightclub in her hair.
- Nervous Wreck: before her eyes surgery.
- Ms. Fanservice: Considered one of the hottest characters of the series.
- Red Herring: 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.
- The Rival: To Candice Hooper.
- Played by: David Koechner
- Hidden Depths: as the bodies start piling up, there's one scene where the others look into his office and see him with his head in his hands, apparently crying or otherwise emotionally affected.
- Mean Boss: You wouldn't really want to be under his wing...unless you liked being scolded.
- Obnoxious In-Laws: references having some.
- Wrench Whack: How he dies.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: in his interactions with Block, who asked him to keep an eye on Sam, asking if they should have codenames or something.
- Played by: Brent Stait
- Played by: P. J. Byrne
- Asshole Victim: 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.
- Death by Racism: 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. Death, who has a sense of honour and integrity, albeit a warped and twisted one, decides to take revenge and Isaac dies via the Chinese Buddha figure falling on his head.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Wears glasses except for his death scene, and isn't particularly a nice guy.
- Human Pincushion: 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.
- Kill It with Fire: Subverted. Despite noticing a stand catching on fire and him knocking candles onto ointment that spreads the fire, he dies under the falling Buddha statue, and never suffers anything from the flames, which died down on both the stand and the ointment.
- Your Head Asplode: Crushed under a Buddha ornament.
- Played by: Ellen Wroe
- Blood from the Mouth: After she lands like a twisted pretzel and breaks a good chunk of her body, some blood starts seeping from her mouth.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How she dies in the premonition. She falls off the bridge and lands on a boat mast.
- Jerkass to One: Her relationship with Olivia is mutually nasty, but she's on good terms with everyone else.
- Jerk Jock: A rare female example. She's a gymnast, and the opening scene has her calling Olivia (the film's Ms. Fanservice) fat and saying that she should go to the gym more often before calling her a slut on top of it.
- Red Herring: All the scene leading up to her death.
- Sickening "Crunch!": When she finally goes, you hear it. Squick.
