  • Repo Man (1984) [Bud]: Arguably mortally wounded when a government headquarter machine-guns him across the stomach; he is still alive when we last see him, but it doesn't seem likely that he'd survive. (Although it's not confirmed whether he lives or dies, I thought I should mention it just in case.)
  • One Magic Christmas (1985) [Gideon]: Drowned while saving a kid (off-screen), he appears throughout the movie as a Christmas angel.
  • Fool for Love (1985) [The Old Man] Burns to death when the fire around his trailer house reach his house and gets set ablaze. It is strongly implied because as the fire rages on, he goes into his house playing the harmonica and when the fire gets his house, the harmonica is no longer heard.

  • Seven Psychopaths (2012) [Man in Hat]: Commits suicide by slitting himself his throat with a razor while standing on the corner, as the dying James Hebert looks on from his window. (This scene occurs in Colin Farrell's story, which turns out to be a fictionalized account of Christopher Walken's suicide attempt which Christopher survived.) (Thanks to Tim, Tommy, and ND)
  • The Last Stand (2013) [Parsons]: Shot in the head by Peter Stormare's men; his body is shown again later on when Luis Guzman shows it to Arnold Schwarzenegger. In a deleted scene, his body was discover in a Closet after Zach Gilford opens it. (Thanks to Tommy)
