Over the course of Season One, numerous humans and vampires were killed in Mystic Falls and other places when applicable. This article contains information and pictures of every being killed in Mystic Falls and the other locations to which the main characters traveled, whether staked, bitten, neck snapped, or otherwise.

Throughout this season 54+ people or vampires were killed, and assuming all of the tomb vampires died, the total amount comes out to 74+. Most of the deaths were in the present, but there were a few that took place in 1864 during flashbacks and they were included in the total, but will be distinguished from present day deaths. The death of a vampire could be counted twice if their human death also appeared in the present or past. How many times Elena and others were saved whether it was by themselves or by another person will also be noted. Also noted will be the villain of the episode if any. A villain will be considered a killer who killed unjustifiably.

In flashbacks to 1864, Stefan and Damon were trying to rescue Katherine, who had been caught in the town's vampire round-up. Stefan caused a diversion saying that a vampire was still alive to draw them away from the carriage where she was being kept. Damon then rushed to the carriage and knocked out the person guarding it. Stefan and Damon were in the process of carrying her out when Damon was suddenly shot by someone a couple yards away. Stefan grabbed a nearby gun to retaliate, but ended up also being shot in the chest as well. Both collapsed to the ground and quickly died as the townspeople began reloading the carriage.

After waking up in transition and learning that he and Damon had died with Katherine's blood in their system, Stefan returned home to his father to assure him that he had no intention of feeding or turning. His father, Giuseppe Salvatore, cruelly admitted that he was the person who shot them, to save him the embarrassment of having vampire-sympathizing sons. He then pulled out a stake and tried to stab Stefan with it, but Stefan, not knowing his own strength, accidentally knocked him across the room, injuring him so badly he began bleeding profusely. Stefan, overwhelmed by his instinct to feed and complete his transition into a vampire, was ultimately unable to resist, and fed on him, presumably to death.

Afterward, Stefan returned to the quarry to see Damon with a young girl accompanying him. Not wanting to be a vampire without his brother, Stefan convinced Damon to feed on the girl and become a vampire as well. In the present day, Henry, a tomb vampire, was also killed when Damon and Alaric visited his apartment looking for Isobel. Pearl and Harper also both get staked by John Gilbert.

They were all then injected with vervain and dragged to the Grayson's Clinic's basement, where John staked Anna and doused the rest of the vampires in gasoline before setting the basement on fire. Damon was confused to see Mayor Lockwood in the basement, as he wasn't a vampire, but before he could ponder what Mayor Lockwood was, a tomb vampire with a grudge against the Founding Families snapped his neck. The rest of the vampires were burned alive, with the exception of Damon, who was saved by Stefan with the help of Bonnie.

Caroline lost consciousness after the car crash caused when Tyler was affected by the noise of the device while he was driving her and Matt home and was immediately sent to surgery. Jeremy was devastated to learn about Anna's death, and decided to finally use the blood she gave him to turn himself into a vampire; he took a whole bottle of painkillers after drinking her blood and passed out in his bed. John was attacked in the kitchen by Katherine Pierce, who was pretending to be Elena. She first cut off the fingers on the hand on which he wore his Gilbert ring, and then she stabbed him in the abdomen. However, Elena arrived home just in time to call for an ambulance, saving John's life, as shown in Season 2, Episode 1. It was also revealed in that episode that Jeremy had no ingested enough painkillers to die, which resulted in the vampire blood merely healing the damage caused by the medication, rather that turning him.
