List of Final Destination characters

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Final Destination is an American horror franchise consisting of five feature films. There have also been ten novels, and two comic books composed of six issues in total. Each medium features a protagonist who experiences a premonition of himself/herself and several others dying in an accident (e.g. plane explosion, pile-up, etc.), only to escape the event together with a handful of characters moments before it turns into reality. The survivors die later on through a series of elaborate and often gory scenarios that frequently resemble Rube Goldberg machines in their complexity.

Despite depicting homicide, the series is noteworthy amongst others in the horror genre in that the "villain" of the movies is not the stereotypical slashers or beasts, but the entity Death itself (occasionally 'seen' as a fleeting shadow) which manipulates the environment in deadly ways with the intent of reclaiming the lives of the survivors (usually through warning premonitions).

As of Final Destination 5, there are 506 known deaths in the films, 183 known in the novels, and 754 known in the comic books. Counted deaths only include those who perished in the protagonist's initial premonition (referred to as Death's List) and those who died along the survivors. Characters are listed according to the medium in which they featured, and are arranged by chronological appearance. Unnecessary characters are excluded, i.e. those who do not affect the protagonist heavily.

While there, Rory pulled Brian Gibbons out of the path of a news van, and asked Kimberly to hide his addictions from his mother if he dies. After Kat is killed, she drops a cigarette into fuel leakage from the news van, and the van explodes launching a barbed wire fence through the air, which trisects Rory.[5]

Rory's death is seen in x-ray format in the opening credits of The Final Destination, and he is seen again in a montage at the end of Final Destination 5.

"What I think was surprising on him was that from all of the humor he's involved and his sort of itchiness that he has with Kat, there is some moments where he reveals how vulnerable he really is and so the shield comes down and right in there you're really becoming sympathetic to Rory. You like him at first cause he's the funny guy, but then you care about him because you realize that there's a place that humor comes from that we all share."

— Craig Perry emphasizing the vulnerability beneath Rory Peters in Final Destination 2.[16]
