Capt. Bowman. Appeared breifly in a couple episodes before THE LATE MR. KENT.
Who's all died on the animated shows? I can only think of a few.
1.Bruno Manhiem - killed in explosion (Apocaylpse Now pt.1)
2. Dan Turpin - killed by Darkseid (Apocaylpse Now pt. 2)
3. There was also some a corrupt officer that went to the gas chamber for a murder( I can't remember his name)
Are we speaking just of Superman, or of Batman as well?
*Barbara Gordon. That is to say, she saw her own demise under the effects of Scarecrow's gas.
*Batman. Or so they thought. Supposedly he was whacked by a weaselly little lookout in "The Man Who Killed Batman", and a memorial service was even held. Batman's supposed assassin was even "killed" by The Joker, who dunked him inside a coffin into the chemical vat.
*Thomas and Martha Wayne. Assassinated by gunfire.
*The Amazing Greysons . Plummeted to their death after their equipment was sabatoged before their act. The sight of that cut cable in "Robin's Reckoning" still haunts me.
*Talia. Her brain, at least. Ras Al-Ghul took over her corpus in "Out of the Past". Talia's body may have been incinerated when his fortress exploded; no one knows.
I know this doesn't count in anyway, but we saw the mass destruction of all of those critters in CRITTERS. And, even though this is in BATMAN BEYOND, the doctor from MELTDOWN was froze to death.
Also dead would be Terry's dad, Mr. Fixx, and that claw guy from BIG TIME. (Man, originally thinking of this post, i thought there'd be more. Ah well, i'm sure you guys can help me out.)
Tim Drake's dad was killed by Two-Face prior to "Sins Of The Father". And a lot of people died in the animated movies, but I am not sure that counts
Karros didn't die. The news ancor said they took him to GOTHAM GENERAL.Originally posted by optimal321
...that claw guy from BIG TIME...
Bigtime, Ian Peek, Mr Freeze, Max....oh wait, I only want her to be dead.
As an impressionable youth (lol) watching Batman The Animated Series in 1992, I realized that throughout the show they went out of their way to make sure people DIDN'T die, unless the character was significantly part of the story. That little rule seemed to stick until TNBA and Beyond. I always found that interesting.

In an interview in Cinefantastique, the producers said that Clayface's disintegration in Mudslide was originally meant as a final, not-coming-back death. But then they decided to bring him back, to good effect. For some reason, all the Clayface episodes were stellar.
You read it... you can't un-read it!
And then there's the seven billion people who died when Krypton blew up . . .
I always kinda hoped that Dan Turpin was alive -- that Darkseid had just used the teleportation effect of his Omega Effect, and that we'd see them later on. IF the series had continued.
Keyodi Ken at the end of "Day Of The Samurai"
Dini & Timm said Turpin was gone for good, and the episode was a tribute to Turpin's inspiration, Jack Kirby. They said his death would be permenant. Superman even mentions the death in LEGACY. Darkseid's eyes have many different functions and properties. They can kill, burn, probe, transport, lift, and about a dozen other things.
Now that I think about it A LOT of characters have died including
Xander (not actually a human when he passes but nevertheless...)
Dr. Lake (remember, Freeze killed her in Meltdown)
and just recently I noticed one of the thieves at the beginning of Heroes died when he his jetpack explodes after hitting a billboard.
This confirmed when Magma says "Scratch three losers" and there were four before Bats and the Trio stopped them.
i'm sure plenty of people have had to have died when in rotj the joker was blwoing up all of those buildings using his "independence day" death ray while he was attacking the batmobile.
And Supergirl incinerates three Parademons in "Little Girl Lost Pt. II"
And rightly so, I'd say. Dan Turpin was the best Superman character ever, and Apokolips Now showed us that. He's definitely my favorite. And to have him killed is somewhat unfair, but it fits so perfectly into the story. Darkseid's JOB is to kill off hope, and someone with as strong a will as Turpin just has to go, in Darkseid's book. But we still have to keep that will alive.Originally posted by DickGrayson
Dini & Timm said Turpin was gone for good...
And to kill him off to remember Jack Kirby also is an excellent and brilliant tribute. I couldn't think of anyone better to use to remember The King for.

A list of apparent or explicit deaths in Batman: TAS. Several of these might not have been true deaths and can be debated, as the writers and animators had to hide from the Fox censors.
I am also listing, for all the shows, a few characters who were killed off but later came back (ie- at the time of the episode, the characters were not supposed to come back, like Nora Freeze)... as well as characters who died in the show but came back in the comic spinoffs (which don't count, according to the show continuity).
Various: About two dozen references are made to the murder of Wayne's parents throughout all three Batman shows.
Heart of Ice: Nora Freeze burns to death in a fire
Nothing to Fear: Many people are likely killed as a flaming blimp crashes into Gotham Square (the creators have admitted amusement that they were able to get away with it).
Two Face part II: According to the creators, Two-Face's two thugs (Min and Max) were discreetly killed by Ruport Thorne's thugs.
The Forgotten: Two men are placed in a sweat box and are never seen again. Later, a character states that it'll kill someone to be put in there, where the bad guy replies: "That's the idea" so we can assume the first victims perished of heat and exposure. Also, the mine where the climax is set blows up completely, with no mention of the fate of the thugs that Batman rendered unconscious.
Dreams in Darkness: I assume this is an error on the part of the animators as, according to the narrative, Batman handcuffs a guard to a pole in the basement of Arkham, which later explodes. How did the cop get out before the basement blew up? Whoops.
Beware the Grey Ghost: Although it's never stated, one must wonder what happened to the night shift guards or janitorial staff of the buildings that blew up.
Almost Got Im: A giant penny turns two of Two-Face's thugs into pancakes. Such a thing, according to Two-Face, would have killed Batman so one can assume the thugs didn't make it.
Heart of Steel part I: Carl Rossum mentions that his daughter was recently killed in a car wreck
Off Balance: While not dead, two of Vertigo's henchmen use poison to render themselves brain dead. Also, Vertigo himself plummets to his apparent death. Although he lands in water, Talia later states in an ominous manner that "Vertigo has been dealt with"
Robin's Reckoning Part I: The elder Flying Graysons make a premature landing.
Day of the Samurai: Kyodi Ken commits suicide by not fleeing and is blown up by a volcano.
See No Evil: It is mentioned that the previous scientist working on the invisibility suit died recently.
Shadow of the Bat part II: The episode ends with lead villain Gill Mason still in a coma. Since he knew that Babs was Batgirl and the world still doesn't, one can only assume he never woke up.
Mudslide: Clayface plunges into the sea an disinagrates.
House and Garden: Countless plant/human hybrids meet gruesome ends.
Avatar: In a flashback, an explorer vanishes (and is presumed dead) after descending beneath the ground to find a tomb. Later in the episode, the tomb below is riddled with skeletons and corpses.
Make Em' Laugh: Another stretch, as the second comedian to be brainwashed (the mouse guy) eletricutes himself and is never heard about later (the other two victims got progress reports).
Deep Freeze: We can assume that Grant Walker slowly perished in a giant ice-cube (or if not, then he suffered a far worse fate). I'm not counting the fact that he later showed up in a comic book.
Showdown: Surely, several people had to have been killed when Jonah Hex blew up the giant air ship. That was a huge explosion and someone must have been nearby the main blast when it went up.
Bullet For Bullock: Harvey mentions that the suspects they are pursuing murdered two bank guards on Christmas Day (I believe the word he uses is "Kiacked").
Apparent of Explicit Death Count for The New Batman Adventures:
Holiday Knights: A limo driver is seen lying down, not breathing after having been exposed to Ivy's toxic kisses on more than one occasion. Also, The Joker kills one scientist and two guards with Joker Venom.
Sins of the Father: Tim Drake's father is found floating in the river in Central City.
World's Finest Part I: The Joker uses smylex gas to kill a jewelry store owner and steal the kryptonite.
World's Finest Part III: The Joker steals a giant air ship and blows up seven or eight buildings with missles. The body count may have reached the thousands on this one.
Cold Comfort: Mr. Freeze is seen shooting a blast of freeze at a camera man who is taping his crime spree.
Joekr's Millions: A Toss Up... The Joker and his men gas several bank guards. They don't appear to be breathing and its assumed that he didn't want them waking up to identify him since he was committing this crime in secret.
The Demon Within: It's implied that the boy villain fed his parents to a cat. Also, Etrigan causes a train wreck, which may or may not have caused fatalities.
Over the Edge: Batgirl, Bane, Batman, and Gordon meet imaginary deaths.
Love is A Croc: It's stated that Croc is being tried for murder. Also, Baby Doll fries two paddy-wagon drivers and they are not seen breathing.
Cult of the Cat: The arena where Batman fights the mutant cat is littered with human bones.
Chemistry: Many human-plant hybrids drown or are melted. Posion Ivy apparently drowns (this was her last appearence on the show). Also, considering that the rescue boat left without picking up any members of the crew below ship (who were seen raking coal into the engines and Ivy described her plan) or any of the hired help, we can assume they perished as well.
Beware the Creeper: The Joker murders a cab driver with Joker venom.
Mad Love: A newspaper reads: "Joker Still At Large.. Body Count Rises." In the accompioning picture, one can cleary see several chalk body outlines.
Apparent of Explicit Death Count from Superman:
Last Son of Krypton Part I: Everyone, but Kal El, on Krypton dies.
Last Son of Krypton Par III: Several aliens are killed by Braniac
Fun and Games: It is mentioned that the Toy Man's father died in jail.
A Little Piece of Home: Luther asks Mercy to accompany a traitorous scientist home and it's heavily implied that he was about to be killed.
The Way of All Flesh: Metallio derails a train (these guys love wrecking trains), possibly causing casualties.
The Main Man Part I: It is stated that Lobo blew up his entire home planet.
The Main Man Part II: The Collector is killed after being blown out of a spaceship.
Tools of the Trade: Intergang members... yep, you guessed it... derail a train possibly causing casualties.
Blasts From the Past Part II: It is stated via newscast that the two foes have been on a killing spree, causing building collapses, sandstorms, stampedes, etc.
Brave New Metropolis: In the alternate universe, Lois was killed by a car bomb and the episode ends with Superman murdereding Luthor (that's nice...)
Apokolips... Now! Part I: It's implied that several soldiers manning a watchtower were killed by a missle. One of the two Apokolips ships attacking the base is blown up before anyone can rescue the two occupents. Bruno Mannheim is blown up by a nuclear explosion.
Apokolips... Now! Part II: One can assume that both sides of the humans vs Apokolips war sustained casualies (specifically, there is a scene where a bad guy takes a shot at Superman which misses and blows up part of a building). If you're reading this post or even on this board, then you are well aware that Dan Turpin gets vaporized in the climax.
Little Girl Lost Part I: Every member of Supergirl's home planet, save for Supergirl, is frozen to death.
Little Girl Lost Part II: Supergirl murders three Apocolips soldiers by spinning them into open flames (then starts celebrating... that's also nice... at least Supes murdering Luthor took place in a parrallel universe).
Where There's Smoke: It's implied that the fire lady roasted the main bad guy (the one with the eye patch).
Absolute Power: COUNTLESS people are killed as several space ships full of people explode or are sucked into black-hole type things.
In Brightest Day: The previous Green Lantern dies.
A Fish Story: Aquaman sinks Luthor's submarine, possibly causing extensive casualties (the grim reactions of all involved implies that lives were losr).
Legacy Part I: Superman attacks several alien worlds and an army base in the US, probably causing fatalities.
Legacy Part II: Superman incinerates three Apokolips soldiers with heat rays (at least, unlike Supergirl's killings, it's not celebrated).
Apparent or Explicit Batman Beyond Death Count:
Rebirth Part I: Terry's father and his dad's assistant are both killed off screen.
Rebirth Part II: Mr. Fix drowns after being caught in a nose-diving airship while fighting Terry (first time out and Terry kills someone, that's a fine start).
Meltdown: Mr. Freeze freezes one female scientist, as well as about a dozen or so of Power's guards before committing suicide. It's also mentioned that he froze a family years ago.
Heroes: The three false heroes are basically murdered by Terry during the climax.
A Touch of Curare: Several cops are knocked off the top a speeding train which itself is on a tall bridge.
Ascension: Derek Powers sinks to the bottom of the ocean and dies.
Splicers: Terry pumps a villain full of splicing stuff, which causes him to mutate into a giant monster who then is caught in the building as it blows up (more blood on Terry's hands).
Earthmovers: A man is killed by a chemical accident, but his mind kinda-sorta lives on with the mud.
Lost Soul: Mention is made of the old millionare who perished in BATMAN:TAS time.
Rats: It is stated that the Rat boy fed several teenage girls to giant rats after they rejected his affections.
Final Cut: Several members of Curare's old assassins club are left brain dead.
Sneak Peak: A reporter murders a scientist to steal his "incorpeal" technology and then dies as the science backfires and he sinks to the center of the Earth.
Plague: The leader of the villains dies after succumbing to his own virus.
April Moon: It is imlied that the scientist was about to do something very, very bad to the thug who was trying to extort him.
Out of the Past: By the show's end, both Talia and Ra's Al Ghul have died.
The Call Part I: Surely there were many casualties as various buidings in Metropolis seemingly blew up (for reasons never explained in this ridiculous, implausible and just plain awful two-parter... well, the first part was good, but part II left tons and tons of plot holes).
Betrayal: Big Time plunges to his death from a bridge.
Curse of Kobra Part II: The Korba ship blows up, killing the main villain, his second in command, the old lady samurai, and probably at least several Korbra agents.
Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (unedited): Well, The Joker dies via a poison dart in the chest, as does his Bonk forty years later. Also, The Joker sets off a government laser which shoots through Gotham, blowing up countless buildings, cars, and at least one crowd of people (yet the apparent hijacking of a government weapons system and its subsequent use in the mass slaughter of countless innocents doesn't seem to cause an international incident... and no one in Gotham is left wondering who was responsible and where the Joker went).
