  • Minions(2015; animated) [Professor Flux / Tower Guard]: In a dual role, "Professor Flux" is accidentally killed when one of his duplicate future selves hits his original self in the head while carrying an heavy invention, thus erasing his future copies from existence.

  • Holmes & Watson (2018) [Gustav Klinger]: Stabbed in the back when Ralph Fiennes throws a knife at him as Steve is about to reveal his secrets; he dies after telling Will Ferrell that he's been stabbed in the back, then that he's "Literally been stabbed in the back" when Will misunderstands (Played for comic effect).
