Top 10 Saddest Animated Movie Moments


The Top TenXW

1Setsuko's death - Grave of the Fireflies

While the whole movie was like that they would survive but it was very sad that she died - zxm

I'm afraid this might go below the list as not many people saw the movie, but mufasa's death is NOTHING infront of this. This masterpiece, as realistic as it is, makes you wonder if there exists any humanity, And of course, doesn't answer that question. This is by far the saddest movie evvveeer.

6Mufasa's death - The Lion King

Stop crying over Mufasa's death, people!

He forced a whole animal species to starve for no good reason. Thus, he deserves to die!

Mufasa was just a fictional character. No reason to find his death sad.

Mufasa deserved to die. He was an awful character.
