Kevin McCallister, Alex Pruitt, and Finn Baxter leave booby traps for the criminals. Their functions are:

Home Alone Edit

  • Kevin attacks Harry and Marv with a BB gun. Harry is shot in the groin, and Marv in the forehead.            
  • After going their separate ways, they both encounter the pre-iced steps. Harry slips and falls on the set approaching the front door, and Marv slips and tumbles down on his back on the entrance to the basement.
  • Marv eventually makes his way into the basement but is soon hit in the face with a heated iron; he pulls the switch, thinking it was a light switch and the iron attached to the string comes down to hit him. It leaves a massive iron-shaped burn on his face.
  • After making his way up the slippery steps with difficulty, Harry's hand is severely burned when he places it on the boiling-hot doorknob. Although he puts it out using the snow near the steps, it does leave a painful permanent scar in the shape of an M.
  • Marv loses his shoes and socks on the tar-covered basement stairs and doesn't realize that Kevin left a nail pointing upwards in the stairs. The nail enters his flesh and he falls back down to the bottom of the stairs, screaming in immense pain.
  • The top of Harry's head gets burned by a blowtorch when he opens the back door, and again, he puts it out with the snow outside.
  • Harry gets glue on his face and gets covered in feathers, causing him to look like he's dressed like a chicken.
  • Marv steps on Christmas ornaments barefoot (causing him to scream in even more pain) when he comes in through a front window.
  • Harry and Marv slip on Kevin's Micro Machines at the foot of the stairs, and then get hit in the face with paint cans while going up the staircase.
  • Harry trips on a rope and lands on his back. Marv, however, jumps over the rope and grabs Kevin's ankle.
  • Kevin, however, plants Buzz's pet tarantula on Marv's face, making him scream in panic. In his fit of panic, Marv flings the spider onto the unconscious Harry's chest. He then tries to smash the spider with his crowbar, but ends up accidentally hitting Harry instead, which angers Harry to the point of hitting Marv with his own crowbar in retaliation.
  • Harry and Marv try to climb across a rope to Kevin's tree house, but Kevin cuts the rope with hedge clippers, sending them swinging into his house's outside wall before falling to the ground.
  • Finally, Old Man Marley hits both Harry and Marv with his snow shovel, saving Kevin's life when Harry and Marv have caught him.

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York:Edit

  • Harry and Marv slip and fall on the ground on pearls dropped by Kevin.
  • Harry comes crashing down on the roof of a parked car after jumping on a seesaw triggered by Marv.
  • Marv's head gets hit by four bricks, which Kevin throws from the roof of the townhouse. (Marv would be dead after the first blow, as getting hit by a brick from that height would cause breaking of the skull and brain trauma.)
  • Marv gets three staples stuck in his buttocks, groin, and nose from a staple gun on the other side of the door.
  • Harry tries to jump up to a ladder which Kevin made all slippery with jello, causing him to fall to the ground.
  • Marv falls through a hole into the basement. (Would die from the several internal and external injuries.)
  • A bunch of tools falls on Harry's head when he opens the door.
  • Marv steps into a puddle of soap, slips, falls on his back, and slides into a big shelf of paint cans which fall onto him, covering him in paint.
  • Marv gets electrocuted by an arc welder that Kevin connects to the sink, making his skeleton be seen briefly (In real life, Marv would be dead due to cardiac arrhythmia and severe burns to the internal organs.)
  • Harry's head catches on fire from another blowtorch when he tries to turn on a light, then he attempts to put it out in a toilet, unaware that Kevin had filled with flammable liquid. The result is that the top of his head explodes in smoke when he puts it in the toilet.
  • Marv gets hit by a hundred pound weight bag of concrete powder.
  • Harry falls from a cut-up ladder.
  • Harry and Marv climb the stairs, avoiding the paint cans Kevin meant for them again, but then they get hit by a pipe which knocks them back down through hole into the basement. Kevin then cuts the ropes holding the pipe which falls in through hole and smacks them in the heads.
  • Harry and Marv both get crushed by a tool chest that tumbles down from the stairs.
  • Harry and Marv fall three stories when Kevin ignites the rope they were climbing down on (it was soaked in kerosene) and get covered from head to foot in wood varnish.
  • Finally, Harry and Marv both get showered by birdseed from the Pigeon Lady, and get covered in pigeons which peck both of them, and the pigeons' feathers stick to the varnish.
