This page covers all of the various death tropes used in Haven.
Homicide as suicide for cases where Troubled murders involve suicide.See
- Elliot Wallace - murdered by Van Richards, using Vickie's Trouble, sketches that affect their real-life counterparts.
- Joe Santomauro - murdered by Van Richards, using Vickie's Trouble, sketches that affect their real-life counterparts.
- Eleanor Carr - murdered by the Chameleon when she discovered its true identity.
- Vanessa Stanley - murdered by Matt West, who upon being told of his Trouble and the classmates he'd accidentally killed was pleased and decided to use his Trouble in order to kill
- An unnamed serial killer with a rose tattoo was killed and eaten by Amelia Benton
- [note 1]
- Kurt - murdered by Bruce Fresnel, getting revenge for his sister, Annie.[note 2]
- Harry Nix - murdered by Duke Crocker to save over 20 of his children.
- Agent Howard - killed by Nathan Wuornos in an attempt to prevent Parker from leaving.[note 3]
These deaths were both purposeful and did not use a Trouble as a method of death. This list includes those killed by the Troubled for a non-Trouble related reason and not using a Trouble.
Katarina Hall, Felicia Brody and Leith Glendower all used a Trouble as a cover for their murder. Each of them is caught by an
- Jeff McShaw - poisoned by Katarina Hall, his sous-chef.[note 4]
- Richard Brody - electrocuted by his wife, Felicia.
- Leith Glendower - murdered by his father Cole.
- Evidence Ryan - shot by one of Reverend Driscoll's men.
- James Cogan - killed the second time by his wife, Arla.
Police & self-defense killingsEdit
- Chameleon - shot and killed by Nathan Wuornos after he discovered its true identity.
- Ian Haskell - shot and killed by Wuornos and Audrey Parker
- Reverend Driscoll - killed by Parker in defense of Amelia Benton
- Roy Crocker - shot by Sarah Vernon in self-defense.
- Arla Cogan - stabbed by Parker in self-defense.
Mass murderers kill several people in a single incident.
- Max Hansen - killed an entire family in 1985
- Ian Haskell - burned a building full of people alive.
Spree killers kill in regular intervals of weeks or days, if they don't simply go on a murderous rampage that usually ends only when someone captures or kills them.
- Moira - Killed at least four people: Lizzy & Rica Hamilton, Charlie Carter, and Joseph Brentner. All of these murders were intentional, though she did not intend for these to be permanent deaths.
- An unnamed serial killer with a rose tattoo murdered a half-dozen women.
- The Bolt-Gun Killer: Killed Roslyn Toomey, Grady Moore, Tommy Bowen and Claire Callahan for their skins. Killed at least six additional women for body parts. The Bolt-Gun Killer was Haven's first recognized serial killer.
- William - modifies Carrie Benson's Trouble and gives the Driscoll brothers a Trouble, causing at least 6 deaths. The hallucinations he plants kill another 4 people. He continues modifying Troubles, including modifying Doreen Hanscomb's Trouble, causing a volcano to erupt in Haven. Only one victim of is known (Susie), but the total death counts are likely much higher. He then murders Cliff, his first kill not making use of a Trouble. He also creates a Rugaroo, which he sends to kill everyone born on July 12th 1983, the day the Troubles came back in Lucy Ripley's time. The Rugaroo kiled Abigail Banks, Gemma Green, and Hank before it was destroyed by Jennifer Mason. He finally triggers the Harker family Trouble in baby Aaron, causing at least 10 deaths. At a minimum, he has caused 25 deaths.
High body count TroublesEdit
Lots of Troubles are deadly, but few wrack up high body counts without the Troubled person exploiting their deadly Trouble to purposefully kill. In the first three seasons only three Troubles have a body count of three or higher without intentional deaths. In Season 4, once the Troubles have accelerated, high body count Troubles are the norm, and no longer the exception.
- Matt West's Trouble killed five people in the space of one day: Carlene Manning, Xander, Brian, Vanessa Stanley and himself. One of these deaths (Stanley) was intentional. The rest were not.
- Nikki Coleman's Trouble killed three people: Paul Stark, Merrill & Hugh Underwood. Only one of these deaths was intentional.
- Daphne's Trouble kills three people in one day: Alice Hargrove, Frank Bentley and Reed Harris.
- Don Keaton's Trouble killed at least eight people in the course of the day.
- Mike Gallagher's Trouble kills four people in the course of one day.
- Paul Krebbs's Trouble killed at least four people in the space of a couple hours: Seth Hughes, Officer Tatum, Chet Lawson and Coach B.[note 5]
- Carrie Benson's Trouble kills three people.
- Jack and Aiden Driscoll's Trouble kills at least six people.
- The Harker family Trouble is one of the most deadly Troubles. In 1901, the Herald had to cover up the deaths caused by the Harker Trouble by blaming the Spanish influenza. In 2011 when William prematurely triggered baby Aaron's Trouble, it killed at least 6 people.
Suicide & self-destructionEdit
- The Novelli family is literally self-destructive. Anger between members of the family creates living roots which attack and kill family members.
- Evidence Ryan committed
- Lynette's guilt over the people her Trouble has hurt combined with her anger at people who get away with crimes and her Trouble took her and imprisoned her in a Haven Court House painting.
Most of these deaths or intended deaths are not actually necessary, and therefore not Heroic Sacrifices. These deaths are largely variations of suicide by cop, where the person does not want to live with what they've done and provokes their own death.
- Piper Taylor - Stupid Sacrifice - Taylor let her Troubled animals attack and kill her. Not only was this not the only option, but it risked the life of her son, Landon who only lived due to his mother's Trouble.
- Garland Wuornos - - Wuornos pulled his cracking Trouble into himself, self-destructing in order to save the town of Haven. This is seemingly a legitimate sacrifice as Parker, who innately knows how to combat the Troubles sees no other option and refuses to help Nathan talk him down.
- Anson Shumway - Stupid Sacrifice - Shumway steps in front of a car in order to stop anyone else from being hurt. There's absolutely no need for this, as while his time-loop Trouble is triggered by guilt, no one had to be hit by the car. Had he waited on the curb the way Parker had instructed him to, the car would have passed by, no one would have died and Shumway, with nothing to feel guilty over would not have triggered a repeat of the day.
- Kyle Hopkins - Stupid Sacrifice - Hopkins impales himself on a knife in Duke Crocker's hand in order to make sure that his unborn child isn't Troubled. This is beyond unnecessary. His ghost Trouble can presumably be avoided by making sure that his child does not become a grave-digger.
- Moira - - Moira kills herself in order to resurrect both her sister Noelle and Nathan Wuornos.
- Jordan McKee - death seeker - McKee cannot continue living with her Trouble and by Season 4 has become a death seeker. She uses her Trouble on the living blood, not knowing whether or not it would kill her. She later kidnaps Vince Teagues and activates Wade Crocker's Trouble. And even though Crocker is aware of her Trouble and his started wearing leather gloves to get around her defenses and he has shown himself to be recklessly violent, unhinged and addicted to power, she meets him alone in his car. This time she doesn't make it.
- Nathan Wuornos -
Driven to suicideEdit
- Wesley Toomey is driven to suicide when Wuornos and Parker convince him to walk into the light and be abducted by "aliens". Crocker points out that this isn't any different from killing him, and Wuornos defends their actions, saying that maybe the aliens were real.
Homicide as suicideEdit
There's being driven to suicide and then there's outright homicide masquerading as suicide.
- Matt West dies by his own Trouble when Parker talks him into unknowingly killing himself.
- Cornell Stamoran is killed by his own clone. For Stamoran, this is homicide. For his clone, this is both homicide and suicide, as his existence is dependent on Stamoran.
- Tyler uses his ability to take over people's bodies by forcing them to commit suicide. He forces Brian to slit his throat, Katie to jump in front of a car and the orderly to shoot a needle full of air into his heart. He then kills himself while in Duke Crocker's body. This last, unusual death is a suicide (Tyler kills himself), a homicide (Duke's body kills Tyler), an attempted homicide (Tyler attempts to keep Duke's body by destroying his own) and an accidental death (Tyler had no clue that Duke was Troubled or that Duke's Trouble would end his own).
- Kyle Hopkins' Trouble brings back the ghosts of everyone he body he buried. As he's a grave digger, this is a lot of people.
- Both the ghosts and the reanimated animals follow the principle of . The exception to this is that somehow, Landon survives his mothers death.
See Tropes: Time travel for death and resurrection tropes involving time travel.
Death by genderEdit
- Numerical aversion: The male to female death rate is approximately 3:1.8, almost exactly the same ratio as Haven's gender gap (approximately 3:1.8).
- Gore aversion: Haven does typically use , but equally. Bodies are equally gory. In Season 3, a serial killer goes around killing female victims, slicing off their body parts and burning their corpses.
- [note 7]
- Character aversion: The rate of female killers to male killers is appx. 3:2.2, a slightly higher rate of female killers. The female killers are no more sympathetic than the male killers, and often they are less.
Other death tropesEdit
- Bill McShaw, T. J. Smith, Lori Fulcher, Nikki Coleman, Don Keaton, Peter Krebs, and  Jack & Aiden Driscoll. The fear that being around a Troubled person is deadly justifies the Fantastic Racism that the Troubled face. -

- ↑ Sheila is considered to have been murdered by Arlo, and not Bill (who pulled the trigger) because we saw Arlo arrange her murder and that Bill was unawares.
- ↑ Bruce is considered to have murdered Kurt, despite the fact that his sister Annie used him to get her revenge, because he was aware of what he was doing.
- ↑ This is the only intentional killing in Season 3 that is not the work of a spree or serial killer.
- ↑ Although McShaw's death was not related to a Trouble, his name was found on Driscoll's "Citizens Killed by the Cursed" list. Driscoll likely assumed that McShaw had died because of his brother's rot inducing Trouble.
- ↑ It is unknown if Seth Hughes was Krebbs' first victim, the robber, or if he was someone who got in Krebbs' way after the robbery.
- ↑ In Season 4, every episode uses suicidal tropes and multiple main characters become death seekers. This could simply be a reflection of how bad things have gotten. But odds are, the town losing their only therapist really didn't help.
- ↑ Jordan McKee's body is seen, but the creepy underwater dumping ground of a serial killer is generally not considered touching.
