Top 10 Movie Characters We Didn't Want to Die

These are movie characters who did not deserve to die or kick the bucket. One rule: Only deaths that were NOT resurrected.

The Top TenXW

1Mufasa - The Lion King

I didn't cry at this scene. STOP ACTING LIKE A BUNCH OF WHINY CRYBABIES, PEOPLE! He's just a fictional character. There is no sadness during this scene.

Every one cried at this scene. EVERYONE. - Pony

Well, if that happened there would be no more plot. - DapperPickle

Was I the only one who didn't cry at that scene

2John Coffey - The Green Mile

This was the first Stephen King film I had ever saw and this also was the most shocking death I saw at the time (I was little when I saw it) - samanime

3Jenny Curran - Forrest Gump

Totally! I sobbed right after that part. - MontyPython

4The Terminator/T-800 - Terminator 2: Judgement Day

I wish Arnold didn't have that chip. - jojodgreat

5Danny Vinyard - American History X
6Walt Kowalski - Gran Torino

He died like a boss

7Stoick the Vast - How to Train Your Dragon 2

His death was a little sudden & uneccesary, & I don't think it needed to happen. - ruJILLous

8Bambi's Mother - Bambi

This should be #1! When I was little I would always edit this scene out on the video when I made copies. Now with DVDs and Blu-rays you can just hit "skip chapter" twice to get past it. - Disney1994

9Sirius Black - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

That death was rare and ass and I thought it revived

10William "Billy" Costigan Jr. - The Departed

Leonardo DiCaprio likes to die

The Contenders

11Leslie Burke - Bridge to Terabithia

His death was a mess, should not have died

12Albus Dumbledore - Harry Potter and the Half Blood PrinceProfessor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.

Before he died, I wanted to see a battle against Voldemort

13Ricky Baker - Boyz n the Hood
14Primrose Everdeen - Mockingjay

Pretty sure this is a spoiler!

15Newt - The Maze RunnerV1 Comment
16Sam the Dog - I Am Legend

I already knew I was going to die, but in the way he died was devastating

17Tadashi Hamada - Big Hero 6Tadashi Hamada is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 54th animated feature, Big Hero 6. The film is inspired by a Marvel comic book of the same name.
18Yoda - Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

It's telling how majorly spoiled the ending to the fifth movie is when you are more surprised by Yoda's death than you are to hear Vader is Luke's father.

19Chuck - The Maze Runner

He was so good - ellster2005

20Damien Karras - The Exorcist

I've only read the book (I don't think I could ever watch the movie any time soon), but his death at the end took me completely by surprise. It's why I consider him the hero of the book/movie. - higgsboson2142
