Audiences expect to see a villain get their just deserts. The more dastardly and uncouth the villain, the more over-the-top audiences want their demise to be. Most films simply do away with a villain with a gun or the usual movie weapons, but there are a few movie villains who need their protagonists to think outside the box to defeat them.
Major movie villains often find a way to escape their fate and live on to the sequel, but not the baddies we've collected here today. Each and every one of these big bads end up meeting their maker in an extravagant and unusual way. Some of them are evaporated with everyday substances, others are blown up through less than plausible means, and others just bite the big one in ways no one in the audience could have called.
All of these defeats are definitely unconventional - but which one of them is so far out of left field that it's not even in the stadium?
