    • Who: Deathstroke (Alternate Timeline)

  • Well, at least I know I was right.
    • Who: Lex Luthor (Alternate Timeline)
    • Note: After all Ravagers are killed, Luthor says these words, after being able to locate the Atlantians' 'Doomsday Device', before Aquaman, saying "No survivors", kills him by impaling him with his trident. He was later brought back to life by the creation of "The New 52"

Batman vs. Robin (2015)[edit]

  • Why won't you listen?! Why won't you understand?! I love them! I love them! I...
    • Who: Anton Schott/The Dollmaker
    • Note: A strong man who was a near-victim of his serial killer father in childhood, Schott wears a broken doll mask and kidnaps children from Gotham City, turning them into cyborg dolls (with modifications like chainsaws implanted on their arms) in an abandoned toy factory. Schott claims that this way, they can never be hurt again. After fighting against Robin, he says these words before Damian threatens to kill him for what Schott had done, but only to spare his life.

You would've done the same." and killing her.
  • Don't doubt your instincts.
    • Who: Talon

Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay (2018)[edit]

  • You're that fool, Deadshot. Ain't this some shit? Did Black Mask find out about my side gig and send you? I'm gonna mess you up real good. And it's his turn.
    • Who: Tobias Whale
    • Note: He was in possession of a flash-drive containing the information Waller sent Deadshot, Count Vertigo, Punch and Jewelee after. After subduing them both, he says those to Deadshot before Vertigo weakens him with his "Vertigo" Effect ability and Punch uses his sting string to force Whale to shoot his own head.
  • What the heck's going on? This wasn't part of the mission. Vertigo... (screams painfully and groans) Why?!
    • Who: Punch
    • Note: During the Squad's mission to assassinate Tobias Whale and retrieve a flash-drive he possessed, Punch witnesses a double crossing coordinated by Vertigo and says these words before he is shot dead in his back by Jewelee with her Energy gem as she says that "Honeymoon's over".
  • Waller? Listen to me. I beg you...!
    • Who: Count Vertigo
    • Note: After revealing his true plans during a mission Waller sent him along with Deadshot, Punch and Jewelee (who was cooperating with Vertigo all along), Deadshot reveals that Waller knew there was a traitor as Waller triggers a nano-bomb implanted on his head. He says these words before the bomb violently explodes his head, killing him.
  • (moans and screams fearfully) Floyd, please, don't let her. I know. I know I was a bad girl. And it was all Vertigo's idea. Please don't let her kill me, Floyd! (sobs) Don't let her blow my head off--
    • Who: Jewelee
    • Note: Right after Vertigo was killed by the bomb implanted on his head by Waller, Jewelee (who was cooperating him all along) hears the bomb in her head preparing to detonate as she pleads for Deadshot to stop Waller, saying these words before Deadshot shoots her head and demands Waller to shut off the bomb "to save on the dry cleaning".
  • Waller! I'll see you in Hell! You dirty...!
    • Who: Crystal Frost / Killer Frost
    • Note: After Frost's nano-bomb was removed from her neck by Zoom, she defected to his side to help him procure the "Get Out of Hell Free" card from Vandal Savage. Right after double crossing him and his henchmen and having a conversation with the Squad members of her plans, she gets into a fight with Copperhead, who frees himself and pins her down. Right after she starts freezing him to death with her powers, Waller activates the bomb implanted on Copperhead. Frost angrily says these words before Copperhead's bomb detonates, killing them both.
  • Fuck... my life...
    • Who: Eobard Thawne / Zoom
    • Note: He was shot in his head by Batman in another timeline, but managed to stay alive by vibrating his brain just enough to sustain his life. The reason why Deadshot found out that Zoom was slower than before is because Zoom was struggling to keep himself alive as his life is still slowly fading away. In his last confrontation with the Squad to get the "Get Out of Hell Free" card, Zoom faces off against and wounds Bronze Tiger and is confronted by Deadshot. At a standoff, Zoom threatens Deadshot that he can use the card if Deadshot tries to shoot him, but Tiger uses his last strength to cut off his fingers by throwing a small dagger. This allows Deadshot to kill Zoom on spot as Zoom says those words and dies in the timeline he was shot by Batman.
  • Miyoshi.
    • Who: Ben Turner / Bronze Tiger
    • Note: During the mission with the Squad, Bronze Tiger was fatally wounded by a trap explosion set by Zoom and inadvertently triggered by Waller. He later appears in the end of the mission stopping Captain Boomerang from escaping with the "Get Out of Hell Free" card and stalling Zoom enough to help Deadshot defeat and kill him. But Bronze Tiger ends up succumbing to the multiple wounds inflicted on him by Zoom with a dagger. He says this last word to Deadshot, who asks him for the name of his deceased fiancee, before dying peacefully as Deadshot decides to pass the card to him and let him use it before passing it to Waller, hiding the fact that the card is useless now.

    • Who: Dr. Poison
    • Note: As Medusa declares her intentions to exterminate the Amazons, Dr. Poison pleads with this, but is turned to stone and shattered to pieces.

  • And so it ends. My race is run. I regret nothing. It was fun.
    • Who: Etrigan the Demon

  • Looks like I get the last word. Suck it, bitches!
    • Who: Victor Stone / Cyborg
    • Note: Saying these words while creating a massive Boom Tube to obliterate Apokolips and send Darkseid and Trigon into oblivion, sacrificing himself in the progress. His death was likely undone when the Flash created a second Flashpoint in the conclusion of the film.

    • Who: Darkseid
    • Note: While battling Trigon for control, Darkseid watches in horror as a Boom Tube created by Cyborg to destroy Apokolips opens.
