The Mummy Returns (2001) [Mathayus, the Scorpion King]: Stabbed in the chest with an enchanted spear by Brendan Fraser in the tomb; his body disintegrates into a mass of scorpions after his death. (Throughout the final sequence, he is in a monstrous human/scorpion form, and his character, including the likeness of his face, is entirely CGI.)

Doom (2005) [Sarge]: Killed in an explosion when Karl Urban sends him through the portal and then throws a grenade after him, after The Rock has started to transform into a monster. (Thanks to Mathew, PortsGuy, Liz, Andrew, Daniel, and Jim)

Southland Tales (2006) [Boxer Santaros]: Killed in an explosion, along with everybody else on the Mega-Zeppelin, when Lou Taylor Pucci fires a missile at it. Through time-travel machinations, a time-displaced Dwayne is also killed (off-screen) in an explosion by a car bomb; throughout the movie, references are made to a mysterious body being found, until it's explained that this body is the "other" Dwayne. (Thanks to ND and Frank)

Reno 911! Miami (2007) [Rick Smith, SWAT]: Killed in an explosion after he runs into a decontamination tent to retrieve a grenade he had dropped. (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to Demetrius and Jeffrey)

Get Smart (2008) [Agent 23]: Killed in a car crash/explosion when his SUV collides with a train at the end of a chase with Steve Carell. (Thanks to Andrew, Augustin, Mathew, ND, and Tommy)
