Film Deaths[edit | edit source]
- The Custodian (1993) [Detective Church]: Shot in the head by Barry Otto in Hugo's bedroom, after Hugo pulls his own gun out of his dresser drawer.
- Reckless Kelly (1993) [Sir John]: Crushed to death when a postbox lands on him (having been launched into the air) just as Hugo is about to kill Yahoo Serious (played for comic effect)
- The Matrix (1999) [Agent Smith] Explodes after Keanu Reeves jumps into his body and destroys him from the inside. (As a humanoid manifestation of a computer program, he returned as an improved version in the 2003 sequel The Matrix Reloaded.)
- The Matrix Revolutions (2003) [Agent Smith] Destroyed (along with his various cloned copies of himself) when the Matrix's (Kevin Michael Richardson) self-consciousness channel emits a deletion recovery surge after sensing an enormous amount of energy through Keanu Reeves after Keanu allows Hugo to "infect" and consume his Matrix-form.
- Little Fish (2005) [Lionel Dawson]: Overdosed on heroin, having been beaten and tortured presuamably by Stephen Moss. He dies while talking to Cate Blanchett, with his body later seen as she dumps him on a beach facing the ocean.
- V for Vendetta (2005) [V]: Shot repeatedly by Tim Pigott-Smith's men; he manages to kill Tim and all his men before finally dying of his wounds a short time later, while talking to Natalie Portman. (Hugo's face is never shown throughout the entire movie.)
- Transformers (2007) [Megatron]: Playing the voice of a Transformer, he's killed when Shia LaBeouf pushes the Allspark into Megatron's exposed chest, causing an overload to Megatron's spark that eventually destroys him. His body is later disposed of at sea. (He is revived in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, when a shard of the Allspark is placed into his chest by the Deceptions.)
- Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (2010; animated) [Grimble/Noctus]: Playing the voice of two owls, "Grimble" falls to his death at the end of a struggle with Nyra (voiced by Helen Mirren) to stop her from getting to Soren (voice by Jim Sturgess) and Gylfie (voiced by Emily Barclay). ("Noctus" survives the film).
- Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) [Johann Schmidt a.k.a The Red Skull] Disintegrates when he physically picks up the Tesseract, after Chris Evans breaks its container with his shield. (NOTE: It is revealed in Avengers: Infinity War that Hugo's character survived and was teleported to another planet, here played by Ross Marquand. However, we will keep this listing here as, if viewed as a stand alone movie, he could be considered dead.)
- Transformers Dark Of The Moon (2011) [Megatron]: Playing the voice of a Transformer, he's killed by Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen), who brutally tears Megatron's head off with an axe. (NOTE: It is revealed in Transformers: Age of Extinction that Hugo's character survived and returns as Galvatron. However, we will keep this listing here as, if viewed as a stand alone movie, he could be considered dead.)
- Cloud Atlas (2012) [Haskell Moore/Tadeusz Kesselring/Bill Smoke/Nurse Noakes/Boardman Mephi/Old Georgie]: Playing multiple roles in the various segments of the film, "Bill Smoke" is bludgeoned to death with a wrench by Doona Bae just as Hugo is about to shoot Keith David and Halle Berry. Hugo's other roles survive the film, though it's likely that most of them die of old age/natural causes between plot segments (Hugo is in heavy make-up for several of the roles).
- Mystery Road (2013) [Johnno]: Bleeds to death after being shot by Ryan Kwanten while they are sniping at each other. He later succumbs to his wound while covering Aaron Pedersen and his body is later seen when Aaron looks through his sniper scope to check on him and discovers he's died.
- Mortal Engines (2018) [Thaddeus Valentine]: Crushed to death after Robert Sheehan shoots down his plane and it lands in the path of one of the moving cities.
