This question already has an answer here:

So, Thanos's goal was to bring balance to the Universe by eradicating 50% of the living. I wonder, was he part of the general population that could have died? In other words, but killing half the living, was he not likely to kill himself as well?

    I would think Thanos would be subject to the same outcome as everyone else. Perhaps Thanos created 2 duplicate universes and killed 50% of everyone in Universe A and killed the other 50% in Universe B. Everyone dies, everyone lives, and Thanos has a 100% chance of surviving while achieving his goal. – Skek Tek Dec 19 '18 at 17:34
