  • Dead Ringers (1988) [Beverly Mantle/Elliot Mantle]: Playing a dual role as twin brothers, "Elliot" dies on a makeshift operating table when "Beverly" performs surgery on him to "separate" them; his body is shown afterwards when "Beverly" wakes up and discovers him.

  • Kafka (1991) [Franz Kafka]: While Jeremy is still alive in the final scene, he's shown to be coughing up blood due to advanced tuberculosis, so it's quite strongly implied that his death is very near.
