|Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981) [Bubba Ritter]: Shot to death by a lynch mob; he later comes back to life to avenge his murder.
Darkman (1990) [Robert G. Durant]: Seemingly killed in a helicopter crash/ explosion. (While the character was brought back for the 1994 sequel Darkman II: The Return of Durant, it seems clear that this was originally intended as a genuine death scene.)
Darkman II: The Return of Durant (1994) [Robert G. Durant]: Killed in an explosion when Arnold Vosloo detonates a remote-controlled robotic "rat" underneath Larry's car.
Pathology (2008) [Fat Bastard]: Asphyxiated/frozen to death when Lauren Lee Smith tricks him into inhaling liquid nitrogen, which he thinks is a drug. His body is first shown in the morgue as the other doctors examine him, and his death is shown in a flashback as they figure out what happened.
