In The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, a total of twenty-four participants (known as tributes) start the Hunger Games but only two of them survive to the finish. Each of the twelve districts sends on male and one female to the Games, and twenty-two tributes do not survive the seventy-fourth Hunger Games.

  • District 1 - Glimmer (F) was stung to death by tracker jackers and Marvel (M) was killed by an arrow in the neck (shot by Katniss)
  • District 2 - Clove (F) killed when Thresh smashed a rock against her temple during the Feast and Cato (M) is the last tribute besides the winners to die and was shot in the hand with an arrow (by Katniss), mauled by wolf muttations, and shot in the head (by Katniss)
  • District 3 - Unnamed tribute (F) killed in the day-one bloodbath and unnamed tribute (M) was killed when Cato snapped his neck in rage
  • District 4 - unnamed tribute (F) stung to death by tracker jackers and unnamed tribute (M) killed in the day-one bloodbath
  • District 5 - Foxface (F) inadvertently killed by eating nightlock berries and unnamed tribute (M) killed in the day-one bloodbath
  • District 6 - unnamed Tribute (F) and unnamed tribute (M) both killed in the day-one bloodbath
  • District 7 - unnamed Tribute (F) and unnamed tribute (M) both killed in the day-one bloodbath
  • District 8 - unnamed tribute (F) injured by Cato and killed by Peeta and unnamed tribute (M) killed in the day-one bloodbath
  • District 9 - unnamed female (F) killed in the one-day bloodbath and unnamed tribute (M) stabbed while fighting over a backpack 
  • District 10 - unnamed tribute (F) killed in the day-one bloodbath and unnamed tribute (M) killed early in the morning
  • District 11 - Rue (F) killed by a spear through her abdomen and Thresh (M) presumably killed by Cato in a bloody battle

The two tributes left standing at the end of the Games are Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mallark, tributes from District 12. In an unprecedented move, they are pronounced co-winners of the games; however, they nearly die by committing suicide.
