Film DeathsEdit

  • Within the Woods (1978) [Bruce]: Dismembered with an axe by Ellen Sandweiss, after being possessed by the spirit. (Note: Since its initial limited screenings, this short film has been withheld from release by director Sam Raimi, due to its primitive quality.) (Thanks to Tommy)
  • Holding It (1978): Shot to death.
  • Attack of the Helping Hand! (1979) [Hamburger Helper Hand]: Playing the voice of a disembodied hand, Bruce is blended to death by Linda Quiroz. (Played for Comedic Effect)
  • Crimewave (1985) [Renaldo the Heel]: Hit on the head by a fire escape ladder. (Due to the film's slapstick quality, it's unclear whether this was meant to be fatal or not, but I'll list it just in case.)
  • Moontrap (1989) [Ray Tanner]: Killed and assimilated by the alien force; the "assimilated" Bruce is later destroyed when Walter Koenig destroys the alien mothership. (Thanks to Danny)
  • Army of Darkness (1992) [Ash/Evil Ash]: Playing a dual role after being split off from his evil side, Evil Ash is shot in the face with a shotgun by Ash. Evil Ash later returns as a zombie, and is finally destroyed in an explosion after Ash hurls him out of a catapult with a lit bag of gunpowder. (Thanks to Patrick, Michael and Tommy)
  • Congo (1995) [Charles Travis]: Killed (off-screen) by the gorillas in the jungle. His body is shown afterwards when Laura Linney discovers him later on. (Thanks to Patrick, Greg and Michael)
  • Menno's Mind (1997) [Mick Dourif]: Dies (though I don't know the details).
  • Bubba Ho-Tep (2002) [Elvis Presley/Sebastian Haff]: Playing a dual role, "Sebastian" dies of a drug overdose while sitting on the toilet, while serving as "Elvis'" double (several decades before the story begins). "Elvis" is fatally injured while defeating the mummy (Bob Ivy); he dies shortly afterwards while looking up at the stars. (Thanks to Ben, Patrick, Danny and Tommy)
  • Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters (2007; animated) [Chicken Bittle]: Eaten by a lion while parachuting into Africa. (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to Emmett and Tommy)
  • My Name Is Bruce (2007) [Bruce Campbell]: Possibly killed (off-screen) by James J. Peck, after James bursts through the screen while Bruce is proposing a happy ending for the movie; the movie ends just as James attacks Bruce. (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to Tommy)
  • Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs (2009; animated) [Mayor Shelbourne]: Providing the voice of the mayor, he presumably drowns (off-screen) after his food boat is sinking and he is too fat to swim. His character doesn't appear in the sequel, further solidifying his fate.
  • Cars 2 (2011; animated) [Rod 'Torque' Redline]: Providing the voice of a sentient car, he explodes when Professor Z (voiced by Thomas Kretschmann) and his evil cars fire an electromagentic pulse (hidden in a camera) at him after torturing him for information, igniting the combustible fuel they've put in his tank. We only see the explosion reflected in the lens of the camera.

TV DeathsEdit

  • Assault on Dome 4 (1996 TV Movie) [Alex Windham]: Accidentally blows himself up when he detonates his bomb not realizing it's been stowed away on the cargo bay of his spaceship.
  • In the Line of Duty: Blaze of Glory (1997 TV Movie) [Jeff Erickson]: Commits suicide by shooting himself in the head after being severely wounded by being shot by the guard he ended up killing. (See also Luke Perry in Normal Life, based on the same story.)
  • Ash vs. Evil Dead: Twist and Shout (2018) [Ashley 'Ash' J Williams]: Playing both Ash and an evil clone, the clone is shot in the head by Bruce while the real Ash survives the episode. 
  • Ash vs. Evil Dead: Rifting Apart (2018) [Ashley 'Ash' J Williams]: Self inflicted stab with the Kandarian Dagger with help from Ray Santiago to rescue Arielle Carver - O' Neill and Dana DeLorenzo who are in a limbo rift. Bruce gets brought back to life by the end of the episode.
