Top Ten Saddest Deaths In Video Games


The Contenders: Page 13XW

241Tobi - Okami

Everyone's favourite demon character coming to life and how his fate really moved them.

242Tsuzurao - Okami

She was such a beautiful priestess tied with Queen Himiko. When Ninetails reveals her true form within the poor woman's garb and I discovered the skeleton of the real Tsuzurao, I am still with grief.

243Tails - Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-bit)

Tails died?! NO! That is just sad! At least he's still alive in canon.

Man... You are about to finish the game and rescue Tails, but you don't have all the emeralds... Tails... Died?!
And that song in the background... Even though Tails didn't cannonicaly die, this was the only bad ending in Sonic history that really motivated me to play the game all over again. Sonic stops and see Tails' face in the stars... This was so sad... ;_; - corisco42

244Victor Vance - GTA Vice City Stories
245Alexei Stukov - StarCraft

First appearence starcraft brood war if you haven't played brood war - whodafuqisthisguy

246Scarecrow - Batman: Arkham Asylum

He got eaton by croc SPOILER! - whodafuqisthisguy

That's my old account ı posted that Comment BEFORE I saw the Arkham Knight - Aguythatpeopleignores

247Alvin - Telltale's Walking Dead: Season 2
248Detective David Tapp - Saw (The Video Game)
249Claire Fontanelli - Crysis 3
250Betty - inFamous: Second Son

At the evil ending Saving Betty is a waste of time

251Mark - The Walking Dead

They cut his legs then cook his legs

252Popop - Dust: An Elysian Tail

At this moment one may feel as Fidget does, disappointed and confused. You did everything you were supposed to, but you failed. And the shock you get when Dust expresses his anger add to the emotion in this scene.

253Big Smoke - GTA: San Andreas
254Sigurd - Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
255Emily Kaldwin - Dishonored

I know that this wasn't a particularly sad ending for some people, but this one really teared me up. I literally shouted NO! When she was thrown of the lighthouse :(

It was probably the most intense and simply brilliant storyline in a game I have ever seen, just the way it gets you so attached to characters, and then after you've completed the game when you realise who the admiral really is.

Brilliant. Just. Brilliant.

256James Taylor - House of the Dead 4

To sacrifice yourself just to shut Pandora's Box, is one noble thing to give humans a new hope despite what Goldman (and his successor) said about humans

257Librom - Soul Sacrifice

Not only is it a sad death but it made me cry just because it was the right thing to do. He had waited hundreds of years for someone to sacrifice him, inherit his memories and defeat his partner Magusar. I felt so bad for him because he had suffered so much. - Erikelelf

258Count Bleck - Super Paper Mario

They sacrificed themselves to save the world. Lady Timpani met Count Bleck one day. Bleck's tribe didn't want him to date Timpani, and vice versa. Bleck's dad nearly killed Timpani. Bleck thought Timpani died. He was so mad, he created a black hole to end humanity. It was created using the Chaos Heart, an object of evil and darkness. Only the true love of Timpani and Bleck could create the "Pure Heart" to save the day. They were killed by the Pure Heart's sheer power.

I have never cried at a game before, but hell, bawled like a lil girl at the end..

260Legate Rikke - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Yeah, though in mine she didn't die. Go Imperials! - keyson
