Every Major Character Death (& Which Movie They Died In)

The Fast and Furious franchise has a high kill count, with significant characters dying throughout the movies, some of whom fans were glad to see go.
Many villains who went up against Dom and his crew, such as Johnny Tran and Fenix Calderon, met their demise in the movies, often as a result of their own actions.
There have also been fakeout deaths, with characters like Han and Letty appearing to die but later revealed to be alive, much to the surprise and delight of fans.

While Dom Toretto has survived countless impossible missions, the amount of characters who died in Fast and Furious movies shows the franchise’s high kill count. Starting back in 2001, the franchise has grown from a crime story about street racing to a massive international spy series with endless twists and turns as well as outlandish action sequences. As a result, there have been a number of key characters who died in Fast and Furious movies, some who fans will miss and others who they were glad to see go.
With the ever-growing cast of the Fast and Furiousfranchise, it is obvious that not all of them can stick around forever. Some of the heroes of the movies have met heartbreaking ends while a lot of the villains have proven it is not wise to go up against Dom and his crew. Of course, there have also been a fair amount of fakeout deaths as well which makes it harder to remember who died in Fast and Furious movies so far.

14 Jesse (The Fast And The Furious)

Chad Lindberg as Jesse in Fast and the Furious

The first character who died in Fast and Furious may be someone fans have forgotten about. In the very first film, Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) had a completely different crew than the one he has now. While they weren’t as intriguing as the main characters, there was one person who managed to squeeze his way into the fans’ hearts: Jesse. Portrayed by Chad Lindberg, Jesse was a mechanic and software designer who assisted Dom on many of his heists.
As they worked on restoring the Supra, Jesse and Brian (Paul Walker) bonded, striking up a friendship soon after. However, this friendship was cut short when Jesse was gunned down by Johnny Tran and his cousin after he ran out on their deal. Dom and Brian would later go on to avenge Jesse’s death.

13 Johnny Tran (The Fast And The Furious)

The first major villain in the Fast and Furious franchise, Johnny Tran (Rick Yune) certainly made it known that he was no friend of the Toretto family. Initially, he was seen to be a racing rival of Dom’s and would be seen challenging other racers for slips. However, Tran soon cemented himself as the villain when he killed Jesse — one of the harmless and most likable members of Dom’s crew — for not turning over his car when he lost a race.
Therefore, it wasn’t that surprising to fans that he ended up getting killed himself when he was shot in the back by Brian. Reflecting back on this, many fans would agree that Tran’s death was a bit of an anti-climax considering how much time the movie had invested in his character.

12 Fenix Calderon (Fast & Furious)

Fenix in Fast and Furious

Portrayed by Laz Alonso of The Boys fame, Fenix Calderon was the lead henchman of Arturo Braga (John Ortiz) and the secondary antagonist of Fast & Furious. Although Braga was the main villain, Calderon proved he was far more ruthless and sadistic than his boss. Not only did he hire the drivers to help smuggle the drugs, but he would also execute them after the delivery was complete.
Among his hits had been Letty, whom he ran off the road and then blew her car up as she tried to escape. Eventually, Calderon was killed by Dom as the mechanic t-boned him with his Camaro in revenge.

11 Vince (Fast Five)

Vince in Fast Five

Although his brutish and violent tendencies were off-putting at first, Vince eventually became a fan-favorite character in the Fast and Furious franchise. Portrayed by Matt Schulze and first appearing in The Fast and the Furious, Vince was seen as Dom’s loyal and overprotective best friend. While he did show an attraction to Mia (Jordana Brewster), this dissipated once she chose Brian.
Vince would then make a reappearance in Fast Five, joining Dom, Mia, and Brian in the train heist. While he had a brief falling-out with Dom, Vince redeemed himself when he prevented Mia from being kidnapped. Sadly, he was killed after being shot by one of Reyes’ men. As one of the original crew, Vince’s death in Fast Five motivated the mission of revenge against Reyes.

10 Zizi (Fast Five)

Even though Herman Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida) was the ruthless politician who ordered the deaths of the DEA agents and Luke Hobbs’ (Dwayne Johnson) crew, many fans will agree that it was his right-hand man, Zizi (Michael Irby), who was more villainous. After all, he was the one who took great pleasure in killing anyone his boss asked him to and felt no remorse for his actions.
Eventually, Zizi ends up getting his comeuppance in the final act of the movie. As he is about to kill Dom for stealing Reyes’ money, Brian shoots and kills him. It allowed for the cathartic sense of revenge fulfilled as the man who killed Vince was taken out in return.

9 Riley Hicks (Fast & Furious 6)

Hobbs and Riley walk together in Fast & Furious 6

Portrayed by Gina Carano, Riley Hicks was the DSS agent who was recruited by Hobbs to help apprehend Owen Shaw’s crew. For most of the movie, Hicks was seen to be a highly skilled agent, proving herself to be a strong fighter and improviser. However, much to the audience’s surprise, it turned out that she was also an informant and the girlfriend of Owen Shaw. After trying to kill Mia, Hicks later found herself engaged in another fight with Letty. Ultimately, the former met her demise when the latter got the upper hand and shot her with a harpoon gun.

8 Mose Jakande (Furious 7)

Djimon Hounsou in Furious 7

Although Deckard Shaw was considered to be the main antagonist of Furious 7, there was one other person who proved to be a thorn in Dom’s crew’s side: Mose Jakande (Djimon Hounsou). For most of this movie, Mose was seen trying to kill Ramsey and Dom’s crew in an attempt to get hold of “God’s Eye” with Furious 7 kickstarting the hacking technology trend in the franchise. Eventually, Mose is killed when Hobbs shoots at a bag containing several grenades, which causes the helicopter he is flying to blow up. Considering how Mose was responsible for much death and destruction, fans were glad that he got his comeuppance in the end.

7 Elena Neves (The Fate Of The Furious)

Elsa Pataky as Elena Neves in Fast & Furious

One of the franchise’s more unexpected deaths was Elena’s (Elsa Pataky). First introduced in Fast Five, Elena was a DSS agent who was recruited by Hobbs to bring in Dom and his crew. After helping them with the heist in Brazil, Elena had a brief relationship with Dom, which ended after the mechanic reunited with Letty.
Apparently, Elena was pregnant in Fast and Furious 6, because she returns in The Fate of the Furious with a son who turns out to be Dom’s child. Unfortunately, the reunion turns out to be a tragic one as Elena and her boy have been kidnapped by Cipher to force Dom to cooperate with their plan. As a way of keeping him in line, Cipher has Elena executed. It is one of the most emotional deaths of the franchise, but Elena has managed to live on through her son Brian and the introduction of her sister Isabel (Daniela Melchior) in Fast X.

6 Connor Rhodes (The Fate Of The Furious)

An image of Connor Rhodes in Fast 8

Portrayed by Kristopher Hivju, Connor Rhodes was Cipher’s lead henchman and the secondary antagonist of the franchise’s eighth installment. Straight away, the viewers could see he was a dangerous and violent man when he killed Elena without a second thought. He also attempted to kill Letty and their crew on several occasions, too. Eventually, Rhodes met his demise when Dom switched allegiances once again and broke his neck during a fight, avenging Elena’s death.

5 Brixton Lore (Hobbs & Shaw)

Brixton looking angry in Hobbs & Shaw.

In the first Fast and Furious spinoff movie, Hobbs and Shaw, the mercenary and agent found themselves facing off against one of their toughest foes. Portrayed by Idris Elba, Brixton Lore was a former MI6 agent who turned rogue after one too many missions. Eteon soon recruited and transformed Lore into a super-soldier once his cover was blown.
However, they turned on him once he failed to attain “The Snowflake” virus and got bested by Hobbs and Shaw. After they triggered the kill switch in his head, Lore fell to his death after falling off a cliff. Many fans were a little bit disappointed with this turn of events as they hoped he could have been used again in the future. It would have certainly been great to see Dom, Hobbs, Jakob (John Cena), and Brixton engaged in one huge action sequence, battling it out.

4 Jack Toretto (F9)

An image of Jack Toretto driving a car in F9

First heard about in The Fast and The Furious, Dom revealed to Brian that he had watched his father die in a tragic racing accident after one of the racers clipped his bumper and rammed him into the wall. However, The Fast and The Furious fans didn’t get to see this unfold until F9 in a flashback sequence.
Although Jack Toretto (JD Pardo) hasn’t featured much in the Fast and Furious franchise, his death has had a major impact on the Toretto family. For years, Dom and Jakob remained estranged because Dom didn’t realize that Jack had asked Jakob to tamper with the car to help him throw the race and get their family out of debt. That’s what makes his death even more tragic — even though it was a plan made out of love, Jack’s actions inadvertently spurned hate between the brothers.

3 Otto (F9)

Otto looks angry in the dead of night in F9

Although he might not have the combat skills his partner had, that didn’t mean that Otto (Thue Ersted Rasmussen) shouldn’t have been considered a threat since he has enough money to buy supplies and attain destructive weapons. However, the only reason that he wouldn’t be considered one of the most intelligent villains in the Fast and Furious franchise is the fact that he allowed himself to be played by Cipher.
After targeting his insecurities, Cipher not only managed to get him to switch sides but he also ended up giving her access to all his technology. Therefore, it didn’t really come as a surprise that she ended up being the one responsible for his death, shooting bombs at the truck he was on in an attempt to kill Dom. Due to Otto’s duplicitous and naive nature, fans weren’t exactly devastated by this death.

2 Jakob Toretto (Fast X)

Despite never being mentioned before the ninth movie, Jakob Toretto is introduced in F9 as Dom and Mia’s estranged brother, following the falling out Dom and Jakob had as children, Jakob goes down a dark path and becomes a mercenary, even taking a job from Cipher that puts him in direct conflict with Dom and his crew. However, Jakob makes for one of the many Fast and Furious villains who become heroes as the Toretto family manages to work out their differences in the end.
Jakob is brought back in Fast X where he is a much different man, with a sense of humor and a heroic determination to protect his young nephew Brian. As he proves, he is willing to sacrifice himself to save Brian and Dom, purposely crashing his car into Reyes’ men and creating a massive explosion that would seemingly be impossible to survive.

1 Fast & Furious Fake Deaths
Split image of Han, Letty and Gisele in the Fast and Furious frachise Even looking at all the people who died in Fast and Furious movies, there has also been a shocking amount of fakeout death in the franchise: Han Seoul-Oh: First introduced in Tokyo Drift, Han is shown to have been a member of Dom’s crew in the past. However, in both Tokyo Drift and Furious 7, Han was shown to be “killed” by Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) as he began his vendetta mission against Dom. Yet, it was revealed in F9 that Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) had helped Han fake his death and he was now protecting a young child, who was key to the plot of the movie. Although fans weren’t completely on board with his explanation, they were nevertheless glad to see him back on-screen after being gone for so many years. Letty Ortiz: Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) has been an integral character in the Fast and the Furious series. Although she first appeared as Dom’s girlfriend, Letty is the franchise’s underrated hero as the audience has seen how fiercely loyal and protective she is of her family. So when the writers revealed Letty had died trying to clear Dom’s name, everyone was shocked and upset. However, their disappointment didn’t last long when the post-credits scene of Fast Five revealed Letty had survived. Though she had amnesia in Fast and Furious 6 and was working with Owen Shaw, she eventually remembered enough to reunite with Dom and has been the co-lead of the franchise since then. Gisele Yashar: Portrayed by Gal Gadot, Gisele made her mark on the franchise when she appeared as a liaison for Braga in Fast & Furious. Gisele was seen to be an integral part of Dom’s crew, helping them to steal Reyes’ fortune and also began a fan-favorite relationship with Han. Since she was not around at the time of Han’s supposed death, it was clear Gisele had to go at some point leading to her sacrificing herself to save Han in Fast & Furious 6. However, in perhaps the silliest fakeout reveal in the franchise, Gisele returns at the end of Fast X, appearing in a submarine to pick up Letty and Cipher in the Arctic. Fans will have to wait until the next chapter for an explanation of her survival.

The 69-Year Story Behind The Fast And Furious Name


The Fast & Furious franchise started with the 2001 movie The Fast and the Furious and went through several major changes in its sequel titles. The title for the original movie was almost different, with options like Race Wars, but the producer fought for The Fast and the Furious.

As the Fast & Furious series has one of the most recognizable franchise names in cinema, some may be curious as to where its origin came from. The multi-billion-dollar franchise started with 2001’s straightforward street racing movie, The Fast and the Furious, but following that, the series went through several major changes, and that was mirrored in the Fast & Furious sequel movie titles. 2 Fast 2 Furious introduced numbered titles, then The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift immediately dropped that format. The fourquel confused things further with the title Fast & Furious, and it only got more confusing from there. However, every title is still a play on the original 2001 title.

The Fast and the Furious came to fruition following a Vibe magazine article called “Racer X”. Universal had the incredible foresight of seeing how popular street racing would become in the 2000s, and the studio quickly grabbed the movie rights to the article. However, while the movie was originally titled after the article, the studio wasn’t totally satisfied with that name, and many other titles, including Race Wars, were considered. The movie even went into production under the title Redline, but producer Neal Moritz had his mind set on one title that seemed unachievable to get; The Fast and the Furious.

The Fast And The Furious Is Named After A 1954 Movie

Another movie titled The Fast and the Furious already existed, and it was released almost half a century before the 2001 street racing film was released. 1954’s The Fast and the Furious, written by Roger Corman, has nothing to do with street racing as it exists today. The movie follows a prison escapee who kidnaps a rich woman and steals her Jaguar, then ends up in an epic road race that ends in Mexico. While the title perfectly fits the 1954 film, Moritz was desperate to use the title for his own movie that he was producing, having learned about it after seeing a Roger Corman documentary (via Entertainment Weekly).

Moritz detailed how Universal didn’t seem to be completely on board at first. The producer explained, “I called up the head of marketing at Universal the next morning and said ‘Okay, I’ve got the title: The Fast and the Furious!’ And there was just silence on the other end. I was like, ‘Oh, I guess that is the worst title he’s ever heard.’ However, after mulling it over, Universal agreed, and it worked out perfectly, as the whole world now knows that name and it’s synonymous with the Vin Diesel-led franchise. Movie titles are extremely important, and it’s less likely that the movie would have become a billion-dollar franchise if it was titled Race Wars.

Moritz revealed, “we made a deal with Roger to give him the use of some stock footage that Universal owned.” It isn’t clear if Corman ever benefited financially from that footage. In hindsight, he undoubtedly got a terrible deal. The Fast & Furious name is extremely important to the franchise and has made Universal billions. The name has even been used for spinoffs, and Fast & Furious Present: Hobbs & Shaw wouldn’t have made $760 million without the name attached to it. However, there was no knowing how huge the franchise became. After all, The Fast and the Furious was originally just a scrappy crime movie based on a magazine article.

Fast X Video Reveals BTS Of Real, Practical Fights In OTT Sequel


The Fast X fight between Letty and Cipher was filmed using practical effects, resulting in a well-choreographed hand-to-hand combat sequence full of emotions. Cipher’s decision to team up with Dom and “La Familia” was out of necessity, but spending time with Letty after escaping prison could lead to her becoming a member of the family. Cipher’s unexplored history with Giselle and her association with Letty could help in mellowing down the former villain and potentially setting up a redemption arc or even a Cipher spin-off.

A new Fast X behind-the-scenes video shows how Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Cipher’s (Charlize Theron) intense fight scene was filmed. Dom and his “La Familia” returned on the big screen in 2023 for the tenth main installment of The Fast Saga. In a major twist, however, instead of butting heads again with Cipher, the primary villain of the franchise for several recent entries, Letty had to team up with her. That didn’t stop Letty from expressing her true feelings about her when they were both captured by the Agency.

Courtesy of Collider is a behind-the-scenes clip from Louis Leterrier’s Fast X that offers a look at how Cipher and Letty’s one-on-one fight scene was filmed. Check out the video below:

The Fast X fight is arguably one of the best choreographed hand-to-hand combat in The Fast Saga, and it’s all because they filmed it with practical effects. The result, coupled with the history between the pair, is an effective action sequence full of emotions.

How Cipher & Letty’s Relationship Evolves In Fast & Furious 11

Granted that Cipher’s decision to team up with Dom and “La Familia” came from necessity after she was targeted by Jason Momoa’s Dante, spending more time with Letty after escaping prison can lead to her becoming a proper member of “La Familia.” There’s precedent to this, with a few of the recent The Fast Saga villains ending up being redeemed and joining Dom and his crew. This has been the case with Deckard Shaw (despite his attempted murder of Han Lue), and more recently, John Cena’s Jakob, who sacrificed himself in Fast X to save Little B.

Increasing the chances of this happening is Cipher’s unexplored history with Giselle. After she and Letty finally escaped the Agency’s bunk prison, they found themselves in the middle of nowhere. Thankfully, Giselle came to the rescue after Cipher notified her of their escape plan. There has never been any indication that Cipher and Giselle know each other before the massive Fast X twist. Making this more surprising is that Giselle has been believed to be dead for several years now. Her association with Giselle could help Letty mellow down on the former villain when they all return for Fast and Furious 11.

Perhaps, this unexpected turn could be a set-up for the in-development Cipher spin-off. Specific plot details about the project are currently scant, with Universal still not announcing a tentative release date. Nevertheless, the events of Fast X could be the start of her redemption arc, with her relationship with Letty functioning as a barometer of whether viewers can finally forgive her for all of her transgressions.

10 Characters Who Should Be In It


Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty is the franchise’s biggest female character and the obvious pick to lead the all-female spinoff. Jordana Brewster’s Mia deserves a big role in the spinoff to expand on her character and showcase her growth. Brie Larson’s Tess is needed in the spinoff to explore the mystery surrounding her character and add her engaging screen presence to the team.

The Fast & Furious saga is meant to continue with an all-female-led movie, and casting the returning characters presents exciting options. An all-female spinoff could be the perfect way to continue the Fast &Furious story, as it will be able to retain the elements of the franchise that make it iconic while offering a new perspective. From the beginning, the franchise has been very male-dominated, and told male-centric stories, so offering the high-octane thrills of a Fast & Furious movie from a female perspective could be a welcome change of pace.

The series is known for having an all-star cast, so any female spinoff will have to match the previous films. Thankfully, the franchise already has several incredible female movie stars. Fast X, the latest film in the franchise, introduced and reintroduced some exciting female characters, setting the groundwork for the upcoming Fast & Furious movie. Obviously, whatever happens in the next film will determine who will be on the team and what side they will fight for. The franchise already has a healthy supply of female characters, both good and evil, who can factor into a Fast & Furious female spinoff.


Related Fast X Proves How Great A Fast & Furious Female Spinoff Would Be The idea of an all-female spinoff is more exciting than Fast & Furious 11, with Fast X providing the blueprint for just how well it could work.

10 Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty Can Lead The Fast Spinoff Ensemble
She’s the franchise’s biggest female character

Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty has been a key member of the Fast family since the first movie, and no female spinoff would feel right without her leading the team. Dominic Toretto’s wife is one of the fastest drivers in the world. Letty has made her way from street racer to international woman of mystery, becoming one of the franchise’s best characters in the process. Rodriguez is an incredibly engaging screen presence thanks to her charisma and action pedigree. An all-female action movie is right in her wheelhouse, making her the obvious pick for the lead in the movie.

9 Jordana Brewster’s Mia Deserves A Big Role
The Toretto family member has been sidelined recently

Another extension of the Toretto family tree, Jordana Brewster’s Mia is Dom’s brother and the wife of Paul Walker’s Brian. Since Walker’s tragic death, as well as the introduction of countless new characters, Mia has been sidelined in recent films, which is a shame because she is one of the best parts of the earlier films. A spinoff with just the women could be a great time to expand on Mia’s character and see how she has grown over the past couple of years, especially now that she is the mother of two. Brewster is an underrated talent, and Mia should be heavily involved in whatever spinoff the filmmakers plan.

8 Brie Larson’s Tess Is Needed After Fast X Introduction
Mr. Nobody’s daughter has a bright future
Brie Larson as Tess firing a gun in Fast X

Fast X introduced several new faces to the franchise, but perhaps most notably was Brie Larson as Tess “Nobody”, a secret agent on a quest to protect Dom and his family. Larson had relatively little screen time in the movie, and her introduction felt like it was mostly included to set up a future spinoff. The Oscar winner is the perfect name to include in a spinoff. Larson is an incredibly engaging and vulnerable screen presence and a great addition to the team. As her family name would imply, there is still a lot of mystery about Tess that this spinoff could explore.

7 Ramsey’s Return Can Give Nathalie Emmanuel A Major Role
The hacker has a growing set of skills
Nathalie Emmanuel in Fast and Furious 7.

After her first appearance in Furious 7, Nathalie Emmanuel’s Ramsey has been the Fast team’s resident hacker and tech wiz. The Game of Thrones star has mostly been used for exposition and comic relief since joining the team, but Ramsey has a distinctive style and skill set that would make her a great addition to the female spinoff. While Mia and Letty are great drivers, Ramsey has skills in the digital realm that could help the team on whatever mission they are on. It would also be interesting to see how Ramsey functions outside the trio of her, Tej, and Roman.

6 Daniela Melchior’s Return As Isabel Gives The Spinoff More Legacy

For a while, Elsa Pataky’s Elena was viewed as an obvious candidate to appear in a Fast & Furious female spinoff. However, after her untimely demise in The Fate of the Furious, her younger sister can fill that void. Another new female protagonist introduced in Fast X, Daniela Melchior’s Isabel also felt like she was included mostly to set up this future spinoff. Melchior is one of the more promising young actors to pop up this decade, and her work in The Suicide Squad proves she is more than ready to have a large part in a team-up action movie.

5 Gal Gadot’s Place In The Fast Spinoff As Gisele Is Likely
Fast X confirmed Gisele is still alive

Gal Gadot made her return to Fast and Furious in the final moments of Fast X’s ending, which confirmed that Gisele is alive after Fast & Furious 6. The character’s return had been speculated for a long time, and audiences should see much more of her now that her fate is confirmed. A Fast & Furious female spinoff can answer lingering questions about Gisele’s life, such as how she survived falling from a plane or what she’s been doing for the last several years. The movie can also finally give Gisele a prominent role in the franchise once again.

4 Charlize Theron’s Cipher Could Play Both Sides In The Spinoff
The franchise’s villain is not to be trusted

In both The Fate of the Furious and F9: The Fast Saga, Charlize Theron’s Cipher served as the franchise’s primary antagonist. While Fast X puts her allegiance into question, she is still one of the best villains in all of Fast and Furious and would make an excellent baddie for the all-women team to go up against. While Cipher could be a reluctant ally to the team, Theron is just much more fun hamming it up as the bad guy, and the film could serve as a fitting conclusion to her movie-spanning scheme.

3 Eva Mendes Can Return As Monica Fuentes At Long Last
She hasn’t been seen since Fast Five
Monica Fuentes pointing a rifle in 2 Fast 2 Furious.

The Fast & Furious female spinoff would also be a great opportunity to finally bring back Eva Mendes as Monica Fuentes. Following her debut in 2 Fast 2 Furious, she returned briefly in Fast Five’s post-credits scene. Eva Mendes has since mostly retired from acting, leaving audiences without a chance to see Monica’s story continue. A Fast X Easter egg did provide a reminder of her presence in the franchise. This could be to help set up her appearance in Fast 11, but a return alongside the franchise’s biggest female characters would be more fitting.

2 Vanessa Kirby’s Hattie Needs To Crossover With The Main Franchise
She’s from the franchise’s only current spinoff

Only appearing in Hobbs & Shaw, Vanessa Kirby’s Hattie is the third sibling in the Shaw family and one of the most dangerous women in the Fast universe. She was a scene-stealing presence in the previous Fast & Furious spinoff movie that left audiences wanting more. It would be great to see Kirby return for an even bigger role in the franchise spinoff, allowing her to interact with some of the other prominent characters along the way.

1 Helen Mirren’s Queenie Should Be The Female Ensemble’s Mentor
She’s become a frequent face
Dom Toretto and Queenie Shaw in Fast and Furious

With her appearances in the past four movies, including Hobbs & Shaw, Helen Mirren has become a surprising mainstay of the Fast & Furious franchise. Her role as British gangster Queenie is such a fun role for the Dame, and her time in the universe should continue especially in the all-female spinoff. Mirren’s roles in the movies have mostly been one-scene cameos, so this film could be a great space to expand the character and give her a chance to interact with more actors than just Vin Diesel.
