  • The Dark Knight (2008) [The Joker]: Fakes his death in front of Michael Jai White, as he is carried into Michael's office and placed onto his desk. However, Heath then leaps up from the table and kills Michael. (The Joker survives the rest of the film).
  • The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus (2009) [Tony Shepherd]: Hanged by a lynch mob after Heath lets them, thinking that the flute in his throat that Christopher Plummer gave him would guard his throat from the noose instead of the fraud that it turned out to be.
