Death's list is the set of people who are meant to die under Death's design, a plan which apparently regulates the events and ultimate demise of everyone in the world. If someone deviates from or "cheats" the death that is set for them, Death will then create a new design and come back for them, usually killing them in the worst and most painful way possible.

If multiple people escape their intended deaths, then Death will kill them in the order they were meant to die in originally, though it can deviate from this rule in multiple ways:

  • Intervention; Occurs when someone intervenes in one's death.
    • Note: Results depend on the timing of the intervention and whether if the one who intervenes is on Death's list:
      • Avoiding death, saved by someone on Death's list, still the target (Ex: Macy)
      • Avoiding death, saved by someone on Death's list, skipped (Ex: Carter Horton)
      • Avoiding death, saved by someone not on Death's list, still the target (Ex: Tim Carpenter)
  • Self-Intervention: Occurs when someone on Death's list manages to save themselves from dying
    • Note: Results depend whether if the target was warned by another on Death's list.
      • Avoiding death without being warned, still the target (Ex: Janet Cunningham)
      • Avoiding death, was warned, still the target (Ex: Macy)
      • Avoiding death, was warned, skipped (Ex: Joshua Cornell III)

References[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Initially, Alex would have sat closer to the Flight 180 explosion. But, because Alex didn't exactly changed seats with Christa Marsh and Blake Dreyer like he would have in the premonition, Death treated as if Alex had stayed in his original seat. This inadvertently made Alex switch his original position on Death's list with Clear.
  2. Depending on how you view it, Shaina, Frankie, and Dano may have not been part of the list. While they survived the initial pileup, they still died after being struck by a car hauler and were counted as casualties in the pileup, while Kimberly would've killed this way too if it weren't for Thomas, who intervened at the last moment and pulled her out of the way.
  3. 3.0 3.1 The oxygen explosion that kills Eugene and Clear also sends a trolley flying towards Thomas and Kimberly. During that time, Thomas is shown slightly closer to the door than Kimberly. If it weren't for each of them pulling the other down before being hit by the trolley, both Thomas and Kimberly would of died.
  4. 4.0 4.1 There has been much confusion to whether Kimberly and Thomas actually died. In an alternate ending of Final Destination 3, the two were shown to have died in a newspaper article, though the information shown in this ending is not confirmed to be canonical.
  5. While it is assumed that Wendy avoided her death by saving herself from being hit by fireworks, an alternate theory postulates that she was unintentionally saved by Ian McKinley, who stopped her from reaching the first aid tent and getting in the way of the cherry picker, which was initially supposed to crush her. After all, this would explain the clue of the McKinley Grad Night shirt, as it would hint to both Ian and the cherry picker.
  6. 6.0 6.1 6.2 There is a lot of doubt as to whether or not the last three survivors died in the Train 081 derailment, as their deaths only occurred in a premonition and the ending to the film was left ambiguous. Though the derailment likely occurred as shown, it's possible that the three were able to mitigate its effects and avoid their deaths altogether.
  7. 7.0 7.1 7.2 When Nick and the other survivors left the speedway before the McKinley Speedway disaster occurred, Jonathan was able to sit in his original seat. Thus, he able to avoid getting crushed by Car 11 and managed lived long enough to be placed after Janet and Hunt on the list.
  8. 8.0 8.1 8.2 There is contention on whether or not Janet and Lori's deaths in the Springfield Centre Mall were actually avoided or not, as the premonition they were shown in was revealed to be a feint made by Death. Additionally, Janet's death in the premonition would've broken Death's rules, as it occurred out of order, though this could be explained if she survived long enough after being impaled for Lori and Nick to die first. However, the only way the death order in the end could be explained is if Nick saved himself and Lori from an unknown death, allowing the list to cycle back and restart with Janet.
