Not includedEdit

The following characters could not be included in their respective tables. Reasons include, but are not limited to: they were last seen in extremely life-threatening situations and whether they survived was unspecified or they died off-camera.

  • It is unknown how many officers in the armored police RV were killed during the rocket attack by Hans Gruber's men.

  • It is unknown how many people were killed in the bombing of Bonwiteller convenience store.
  • It is unknown how many people were killed or injured when the bomb in Wall Street Station exploded, causing the train to go out of control and damage the station. However, many characters state everyone survived thanks to McClane, and it is possible, if he had not intervened, everyone in the station would all be dead with no survivors.
  • The security guards in the security room are possibly killed off-screen by Nils and Klaus by the time Simon and the rest of his men arrived in the vault floor the Federal Reserve Bank.
