1. Tony Montana In Scarface (1983)
Assassinated By: Dozens of Alejandro Sosa's goons
Cause of Death: Multiple gunshots leading up to a shotgun blast through his back
It's the quintessential "going out like a G" moment. And to think, Tony Montana's (Al Pacino) last stand is the result of a rare moment of conscientious thinking. Drug kingpin Alejandro Sosa calls upon Tony to assassinate a journalist, but right as the hit is about to happen, Tony sees that his target's family is there with him, and he calls off the jobâ€”which, unsurprisingly, doesn't sit too well with Mr. Sosa.
Rather than send a lone assassin to the Casa De Montana, Sosa unleashes a large army of gunmen onto the makeshift palace. Tony ultimately falls to his death, landing in a water fountain, adorned by a sign reading, "The World is Yours." But not before taking upwards of 30 bullets, blowing fools away with an M-16 grenade launcher and sending many foes to Hell with him. Of course, he's hopped up on mounds of cocaine the entire time and doesn't seem to feel a single bullet, but the resiliency is still highly impressive.
The lesson learned here: Don't do drugs. And always keep an M-16 grenade launcher handy.
