I'll forever be in support of Gobler dying as a result of stupidly forgetting what brakes are for.

No Cairo Swordsman?

I'll go with Toht, the screaming is just so funny/amazing.

Yeah, the face melt is truly classic. That is a truly chill inducing scene when you're a kid watching Raiders.

Belloq's exploding head was pretty wicked too, though.

Sorry but for me it was Pat's german mechanic getting sliced.

Give him his props......(sorry but I had to recycle my own bad pun!)

Second would be Toht.

I wish there were more to vote for. Poor Pat had TWO great deaths and not one was given on the multiple-choice. So, here's my TOP 5 fave Raiders deaths.

1) Deitrich eating too many Ark lemons
2) Cairo swordsman failing his Intelligence Check
3) German mechanic propeller trauma
4) Peruvian porter with the original stickyback
5) The monkey!

Dr. Bones beat me to it, but the German Mechanic getting frapped is one of my favorite conclusions to a move fight ever. Having said that, Toht's death is unbeatable. I love the way his glasses slide down his face as it melts. The use of practicals effects is both amazing and delightful. If it were done today, it would (a) be CGI and (b) look terrible.

Nice. This comes in 3rd behind Donovan's demise(all time list) and Toht's "explosion" IMO.

Face melting every time. That was so cool when I was young. My kids laughed when they first saw it, they thought the effects looked crap.

Oddly enough it was the best. Tohts is next, of all the on screen horror, the artist who made up his bust was best, (on screen).
