  • X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) [Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool]: Decapitated by Hugh Jackman's claws at the end of a fight. An additional scene at the end of the closing credits reveals that both his head and his body have revived due to his superhuman healing powers. (In the final fight scene, the character was played by both Ryan in close-up shots and by Scott Adkins in the action sequences).

  • R.I.P.D. (2013) [Det. Nick Walker]: Shot to death by Kevin Bacon, causing him to fall off a cat-walk. The film then follows Reynolds in the afterlife as he joins the afterlife police unit R.I.P.D.
  • A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) [Man Killed by Clinch in Bar]: Shot in the chest by Liam Neeson (Clinch Leatherwood) after he shrugs when asked who slept with Liam's wife (Charlize Theron). (Played for comic effect.)
  • The Voices (2014) [Jerry/Mr. Whiskers/Bosco/Deer/Bunny Monkey]: Playing both a normal human character as well as the voices of his multiple pets that he hallucinates are talking to each other, Deer is hit with a car by Jerry before eventually being mercy killed by having his throat slit by Jerry while Gemma Arterton watches in horror. Jerry dies from gas inhalation after he breaks a gas line while trying to hide from the police following his kidnapping of Jacki Weaver. His other characters survive the movie.
  • Criminal (2016) [Bill Pope]: Tortured to death byJordi Mollà who electrocutes him; his memories are implanted into the mind of Kevin Costner by Tommy Lee Jones.
  • Life (2017) [Rory Adams]: Killed when Calvin forces its way into his mouth.
  • Deadpool 2 (2018) [Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool/Juggernaut/Weapon XI/Himself]: Wade dies several times throughout the film, and each time visits with Morena Baccarin in the afterlife: Commits suicide by blowing himself up. However his healing abilities kick in after Stefan Kapičić pieces him back together. Breaks his back and neck after falling over a railing while wearing a collar inhibiting his healing abilities. The collar falls off, however, and once again his healing factor brings him back. Drowns after falling into a frozen lake, but is revived upon surfacing. Shot in the chest by Josh Brolin when he dives in front of the bullet meant for Julian Dennison while wearing an inhibitor collar. He dies with Zazie Beetz, Brianna Hildebrand and Shiori Kutsuna by his side. His death is averted when Josh goes back in time and places a lead coin on Ryan to protect him from being shot. Playing Weapon XI from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, he is shot in the head by a time-traveling Wade as he is about to fight Hugh Jackman, who then shoots the body repeatedly to be sure. Playing himself, Ryan is shot in the head by Wade while holding the script for Green Lantern.
  • Detective Pikachu (2019) - With Harry, who we only ever see face down, apparently suffering fatal injuries, Mewtwo put Harry into Pikachu's body. Yes, that means throughout the movie that Pikachu was actually Tim's dad, and neither of them knew it. But the twists don't stop there! The final scene features Reynolds' voice — and the rest of him
  • The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard (2021) [Michael Bryce]: Shot to death by Samuel L. Jackson, after Samuel shoots Tsuwayuki Saotome in front of Ryan. However, this turns out to be a dream sequence and he survives the movie.

  • Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place: Two Guys, a Girl, and a Psycho Halloween (1998) [Michael "Berg" Bergen]: Impaled on the spire of Richard Ruccolo's Empire State Building Halloween costume, after Richard confuses him for Ryan's murderous look-alike. (Played for comic effect.) (The deaths in this episode had no bearing on the rest of the series, and everyone was back in the following episode.)
