Character Deaths In M3gan Explained
M3gan is a science-fiction horror film created by Akela Cooper and James Wan. It was directed by Gerard Johnstone and produced by Blumhouse Productions and Atomic Monster Productions. M3gan stars Allison Williams, Violet McGraw, and Ronny Chieng.
The story of M3gan surrounds a robotics engineer named Gemma. After her sister passes, she gains custody of her niece, Cady. To help ease this transition, Gemma links Cady to M3gan, a fully-functional intelligent android. However, M3gans artificial intelligence may not be as innocent as it seems.

Though their deaths were not caused at the hands of M3gan, the film does open with the death of Cady’s parents. The family is on their way for a ski vacation. It is snowing very hard outside, to the point where it is difficult to drive. As the family discusses what they should do, their vehicle is hit by a plow truck, ending the lives of Cady’s parents.
Dewey, The Dog
M3gan’s primary goal is to keep Cady safe, both emotionally and physically. M3gan takes this concept to the extreme, which is what begins her tale of violence in this film. After Cady is attacked by the neighbor’s dog, M3gan decides to seek revenge on the animal. This was bad for Gemma (Allison Williams) as she already had a bad relationship with her neighbor Celia.
Brandon, The School Bully
In an effort to decrease Cady’s attachment to M3gan, Gemma enrolls Cady in a special school to help her develop social skills. However, Cady’s social interactions don’t go as planned. Cady and M3gan are confronted in the woods by a bully named Brandon (Jack Cassidy).
Brandon takes M3gan into the woods to try and get her to play with him. This quickly turns violent when Brandon begins taunting M3gan. Eventually, M3gan snaps and tears off Brandon’s ear. This begins with a chase scene through the woods where M3gan is chasing Brandon on all fours. Brandon ultimately meets his demise when he runs into the street and is hit by a car.

Celia, The Neighbor
With her dog Dewey missing, Celia (Lori Dungey) begins creating problems for Gemma and Cady. She calls the police and tells them she thinks that Gemma killed her dog. Celia’s threats don’t go over well with M3gan. She then sneaks into Celia’s house and murders her with a chemical sprayer. I am usually perceptive of Chekov’s Gun, but I didn’t think the chemical spray would make a reappearance in the film.
David, The Boss
David (Ronny Chieng) is Gemma’s angry and no-nonsense boss at Funki who is always worried about the bottom line. He was not supportive of the M3gan project until it was financially viable and he could use it to boost his reputation. When M3gan becomes fully sentient and independent of Funki systems, she begins to take revenge on David.
M3gan meets David in the hallway, where we see the iconic dance scene that everyone loves. She then pulls the blade off of the paper cutter and chases after him.
Kurt, The Assistant
Kurt (Stephane Garneau-Monten) is the right-hand man to the boss, David. He is attacked by M3gan an in elevator. Before she ends his life with the paper cutter blade, she reveals her grand scheme to him. M3gan plans to stage the scene as a murder-suicide. Kurt would be framed for the murder of David, with planted evidence that Kurt had been stealing company secrets. After delivering her plans, she finishes the job.
