Death decides to kill her. Can it do so within 24 hours?

As long as she is aware, I think she can last. The original guy who saw the visions and the girl both avoided death for like years or something. And despite knowing what was going to happen, they still had to react to stuff. She just has to try and stay alive and things will work in her favor, as all of the deaths were caused by seeming accident or random chance, which her powers should be able to work with considering hee movie feats.

What an interesting match up.
I agree w. Almighty here, in that normal humans have managed to last well over 24 hours. Her powers should make this her “fight” to lose.

I think eventually she's going to die....but aren't we all?

Gonna be ALOT of shit cancelling itself out, but even if its by pure attrition of decades Death is going to eventually win. Could be some crazy shit where the very fact that her powers are working overtime to cancel out all of Death's synchronicity causes stress on her body that makes her just drop dead of an aneurysm one day when she takes a break to have a cup of coffee.

final desitnation Death kind of limited in a since its seem to be more multi part puzzle sort of thing
And it does seem to avoid collatoral damage and keeps the deaths toward the one scedule to die. So it not going to say drop a plane on her if its have people.

Hell if we talking movie Domino...he powers don't care about that last part

the only surefire way to avoid Death though is if you die and get revived, which means is technically fulfilled its role and moved on. Even then you're still going to die one day.

Domino is going to last a really really long time, maybe decades if she's smart but eventually Death will win. That's what it does.

Well of course Death will eventually win, as Domino isn't immortal and has a normal lifespan. If her powers last her whole life in constant use, she'll just die. If they don't, she'll be killed.

Either way, OP only asks her to last 24 hours, which is insanely easy.

UNLESS... Domino somehow stumbles into the chamber that gave Deadpool his powers and she just becomes immortal, thus defeats Death.

She probably survives, particularly given that Death didn't tend to make that many attempts on a person's life within a 24 hour period. It raises an interesting question about the limits of Death's power though.

Posters have cited people surviving for extended periods in the FD films, but Death seemed content to leave it's targets alone for days, weeks or even months following a failed attempt on their life. The final trio from FD1 were apparently left alone for six months prior to the epilogue, and the final trio from FD4 were apparently left alone for two weeks prior to the epilogue of that film. I assume they were left alone, because they seemed to be under the impression that Death was no longer after them.

There are also times when it seems like Death is screwing with it's targets, for shits and giggles. In the final third of FD1, Alex had what seemed like three close calls (one in the shack he was hunkering down in, and two more while running through the woods to Clear's house), but it was actually Clear's turn to die, not his. And in the epilogue of FD4, Nick questions whether they actually changed anything, wondering if them meeting in that particular coffee shop at that particular time (where they were promptly killed by a runaway truck) was actually Death's plan from the beginning.

If we say for the sake of argument that Death isn't in a patient mood here, and is determined to kill Domino within 24 hours, I do wonder whether her powers would be adequate protection. Sure, she casually avoided a bunch of potential deaths in Deadpool 2, but those were all random events, or attacks from opponents who weren't specifically altering probabilities, like she does. Manipulating probabilities is what Death seemingly does in the FD films though, which begs the question: are Death's powers over probability weaker than Domino's? Sheer fatigue could be a factor too, if Domino is constantly having to avoid attempts on her life for 24 hours straight.

Has death killing someone in the film ever killed someone who wasn't scheduled to die. If so that's a limit

Or if domino gets knocked up

Has death killing someone in the film ever killed someone who wasn't scheduled to die.

Ostensibly yes, but not on purpose. In FD5, it was suggested that if you were on Death's current list and killed someone who wasn't, you'd inherit that person's remaining lifespan. In one scene, a character who was scheduled to die pulled a work colleague into the path of a lethal mishap, and the other guy died instead. Turned out the other guy was a cancer patient who didn't have long to live anyway though, so the character who caused his death only got a few extra days of life.

So far as we know, Death hasn't intentionally killed someone out of order in any of the films. In fact, Death apparently manipulates probabilities to prevent people killing themselves, if they're on the list but not next in line. A character from FD2 tried to shoot himself with a revolver, but all six bullets proved to be duds. And a guy in FD4 said he'd been trying to kill himself all day, including swallowing a bunch of pills and puking them up, and a failed hanging attempt where the rope snapped.

If so that's a limit

Possibly. Death appears to follow certain rules, but it's unclear whether that's a genuine limit or a choice. The ending of FD4 throws out the implication that the ability to cheat Death's design may simply be an illusion, and that everything that happened was planned all along. A bit like time-travel movies or TV episodes where people go back in time and think they're changing the past, but it turns out that the time-travel itself was part of a predetermined time loop.
